Tears of Tess Blog Tour

Title: Tears of Tess
Author: Pepper Winters
Genre: Erotic/Dark Contemporary Romance
Release Date: September 6, 2013
Tour Organized by: As the Pages Turn
Purchase Links: 

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?

5 out of 5 Stars

Where to even begin a review of this book sorta has me stumped. Trying to figure out where this one belongs to be categorized is really hard it's sorta like Captive in The Dark meets Consequences yet at the same time it's NOT, because it really is unlike anything I have ever read before. This is not for the feint of heart, its dark, dirty and violent and SEXY as all hell I think? I'm sort of torn on how I feel about the relationship of Tess & Q. What I am not torn about is the absolute entertainment value of Tears of Tess, because I was sold from the very beginning there was no way in HELL I was not reading it until the end. Amazing writing and such complex characters that have layer upon layer of things to be uncovered as you read that you can't contain your NEED to know what will happen next. I don't know if this is a LOVE story, what I do know is it is a story about two people who were made for each other, finding what they need in the other, even when they try to deny it. AND boy do they ever try to deny it. Tess WILL NOT be broken by what is transpiring she refuses to believe that she won't find a way out of the situation she is in, but what she never expects is that she might not want out. What I can tell you is that if you need sunshine & rainbows I wouldn't recommend Tears of Tess for you,  BUT if you want a truly unique and INCREDIBLE story then I suggest you run not walk to Amazon, B&N itunes whereever it is you buy your books and grab Tears of Tess and be prepared for well I kind of already told you to prepare for haven't I? 
to name a few in case you weren't paying attention earlier. 

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 speaks French—hot!) who puts up with her love affair with her book boyfriends. She loves to hear from her readers so hit her up at
