Name: Tears of Tess
Author: Pepper Winters
Publication date: September 6th 2013
Genre: New Adult Dark Contemporary Romance
A New Adult Dark Contemporary Romance, not suitable for people sensitive to grief, slavery, and nonconsensual sex. A story about finding love in the strangest of places, a will of iron that grows from necessity, and forgiveness that may not be enough.
“My life was complete. Happy, content, everything neat and perfect.
Then it all changed.
I was sold.”
Tess Snow has everything she ever wanted: one more semester before a career in property development, a loving boyfriend, and a future dazzling bright with possibility.
For their two year anniversary, Brax surprises Tess with a romantic trip to Mexico. Sandy beaches, delicious cocktails, and soul-connecting sex set the mood for a wonderful holiday. With a full heart, and looking forward to a passion filled week, Tess is on top of the world.
But lusty paradise is shattered.
Kidnapped. Drugged. Stolen. Tess is forced into a world full of darkness and terror.
Captive and alone with no savior, no lover, no faith, no future, Tess evolves from terrified girl to fierce fighter. But no matter her strength, it can’t save her from the horror of being sold.
Can Brax find Tess before she’s broken and ruined, or will Tess’s new owner change her life forever?
Writer, reader, sometimes wife.
An avid devourer of sexy romance and angsty New Adult.
Nothing beats lolling in a bubble bath with her array of book boyfriends.
Her two titles: Tears of Tess and Broken Chance are coming soon.

Suzette clapped her hands, her pristine maid’s uniform of white and black looking very French and sexy. I admired her for wearing something like that, even if it was house hold protocol. I rented a maids uniform once to surprise Brax. He laughed and said Halloween wasn’t for another two months.
I burned it ceremoniously when he went to work. Brax didn’t need gimmicks to love me. He just needed me. My eyes hurt with tears as Suzette bounced over.
“You’re coming to the markets with me. I need to grab a few more things for dinner.”
My entire body snapped to attention. Out? Freedom? As in out of the house? Around people? My soul rejoiced but I forced myself to look nonchalant. She mustn’t know how eager I was to leave her behind. I think in some way she expected me to stay. Forever. Naïve woman.
