At 18 I had pennies, but money didnt make me bold. At 19 I had dollars, but it didnt dull the pain of being sold. At 20 I had hundreds, but then I met him and was found. At 21 I had thousands, but all I wanted was to be bound.

ARC received for an honest review

Move over Elvira, Mistress of the Dark

Pepper Winters, QUEEN of the Dark is here to stay.

What a sick, twisted place it must be in Ms Winters mind!

Pennies is a dark,  twisted  story, in only the way that Pepper Winters can do.  You have to go into one of her books without any expectations, because you never know what you are going to get.
This story does have some things that could be triggers for people, so take heed of the warning the beginning of the book!

But the warning is like a beacon to me, I just had to read it!

As the book progressed, I was a mess of emotions.  My heart ached for Tasmin, I was furious for her and what had happened, I was filled with rage and hate about Master A (my god he is a seriously sick f&ck!) I felt a speck of hope with Elder.

I am sure I must have looked like a mad woman, screaming at my kindle for Elder to just do it.  Do what his gut was telling him to do.

I was shocked, surprised, but also elated as things played out... but again thrown into disarray as we came to the end.
This book was everything I could have wanted from a Pepper Winters book.  It is the morning after the night before as I write this review, and I am struggling for words to do it justice.
Now I am impatiently waiting for the second book, Dollars.

Oh how I need more!


Fuck this.

I stalked forward.

My hand came up.

The urge to soothe her catapulted my fingers to her cheek. My skin erupted from her delicate heat. Id already had my single touch when Id petted her hair. I wasnt permitted a second.

But it didnt stop me.

One second, she stood close, arching her chin at the door.

The next, she was across the cage, flying into a stack of boxes that tumbled in a clatter of butcher knives, butter knives, and sharp forks.

Her eyes turned luminous in the gloom, locking on mine with rage.


Id forgotten myself by feeling sorry for this beaten wraith, but she hadnt forgotten her overwhelming hatred of men.

I didnt look away. But I didnt explain myself, either.

Id borrowed her for the night. If I wanted to touch her, I could. The fact that shed leapt away meant I could report her to her master and have her punished.

Or you could punish her instead.

The distance between us grew thicker as we breathed fast.

I waitedwanting to know just how deep her education in pleasure flowed. Tearing her gaze from mine, she swallowed hard. Piece by piece, she hid her loathing, replacing it with reluctant acceptance.

Inching closer, her toes nudged aside sharp blades as she made her way to me and fell to her knees on the cold concrete.

Half of me jolted with insane lust. Most of me shied away with repulsion as her straggly hair covered her face but not before I saw the twisted disgust and echoing despair.

Get up, I murmured. Even though my voice was low, the cavern of the garage amplified it, layering it with bite.

Instantly, she swooped up. The crackle of her joints and misused cartilage in her bones sounded like tiny gunfire.

Dont kneel. Not in here.”  

Pepper Winters wears many roles. Some of them include writer, reader, sometimes wife. She loves dark, taboo stories that twist with your head. The more tortured the hero, the better, and she constantly thinks up ways to break and fix her characters. Oh, and sex... her books have sex.
She loves to travel and has an amazing, fabulous hubby who puts up with her love affair with her book boyfriends.
