Pepper Winters - Bonus ​Epilogue
This ​bonus takes place as an additional snippet to TEARS OF TESS told from Tess's Point of View. Also included is a three chapter preview to PENNIES (Dollar Series #1) and CAN'T TOUCH THIS (romantic comedy standalone).

Pepper Winters - The ​Argument
They ​say the key to a good relationship is one with no drama. They say you’re not trying hard enough or married the wrong person if you fight. Sorry, but I call bulls***. I’ve had plenty of relationships: some sweet, some happy, most an utter failure. Until I met Harriet. Our first conversation was an argument. Our second conversation was an argument. Our entire connection was based on…yep, an argument. We tore up the rules of chance encounters and polite first meeting etiquette. And after the week I’d had, I was ready for a punch-up. Hell, I craved one. And Harriet was there to antagonise me. The first time we met, we spent every hour from dusk to dawn, arguing. And when the sun rose, neither of us wanted to stop. Because there was something so refreshing about being honest. Saying exactly what you thought. Picking faults just because you itched to fight. It was only supposed to be one night. A night where the town was our battlefield, the clubs a microphone to our bickering, and the stars a listener to our squabbles. Only…I wasn’t ready to say goodbye. You see, arguing turned out to be the best damn thing I’d ever experienced. So, instead of agreeing to the terms we’d set, I revoked them. I went home with her. I refused to leave. And our argument turned into something so much more than a random quarrel. It turned into war and our love wasn’t sweet…it was hostile.

Pepper Winters - Fable ​of Happiness
From ​New York Times Bestseller, Pepper Winters, comes a new Dark Romance full of decadent angst, monstrous heroes, and pages chock-full of lust. A house hidden in the middle of nowhere. A man who’s lived alone for a decade. A woman who trespasses on his solitude. A love full of hate as well as hunger. The thing about my life is...I was never in control of it. I just I thought I was. I thought I had everything figured out—a good career, fun hobbies, a bright future, but everything changed when I found an ivy-cloaked house, tucked in a forgotten valley, hiding a man who corrupted my world forever. I thought I was successful, until he showed me fortune and happiness could be snatched away in an instant. I believed I was blessed, but really, I was cursed. Cursed to become a plaything for a monster. Cursed to become a prisoner just because I trespassed. Now, I know nothing. I am nothing. I’m just his.

Pepper Winters - The ​Living Canvas
The ​advert was so similar to one I should never have applied for. A twist of fate that brought two destined people back together. A job I would take in a heartbeat if the employer could offer such terms. But I wasn't free. Neither was Gil. Therefore, my interview could never happen.

Pepper Winters - Verloren ​in der Dunkelheit
Sie ​hat alles verloren: ihre Freiheit, ihren Namen und ihre Vergangenheit. Ohne Erinnerung an ihr Leben und mit der Gewissheit, geradewegs in der Hölle auf Erden gelandet zu sein, sieht sie ihn: Arthur Killian, Anführer der Bikergang Pure Corruption - und ihr Kidnapper. Sie sollte vor ihm fliehen, solange sie noch kann. Doch etwas in seinem Blick weckt in ihr das Verlangen, dem Mann mit den stechend grünen Augen näher zu kommen ...

Pepper Winters - Jinx's ​Fantasy
From ​New York Times Bestseller, Pepper Winters, comes a spin-off novella featuring Sully and Jinx from the USA Today Bestselling Series, Goddess Isles. “A marriage born from slavery and secrets. A happily ever after like no other.” Sullivan Sinclair has a wife who shares his wildness and desires. To others, she is regal and perfect on his arm. To him, she is a goddess with dirty appetites that need to be fulfilled. Eleanor Sinclair has a husband who allows her darkest fantasies to come true. Aboard their new luxury yacht, purchased for their cluster of islands called Rapture, he suggests a game of seduction. Another play in Euphoria. Sea, sky, or sand—thanks to Sully’s unique playground, they can play anywhere. They can change their appearances, distort time, and indulge in romance with no rules. Eleanor granted Sully’s ultimate fantasy. Now, it’s Sully’s turn to grant hers.

Pepper Winters - Mit ​dir ins Licht
Endlich ​sind Cleos Erinnerungen zurückgekehrt - da droht ihr Glück erneut zu zerbrechen: Brutal wird sie den starken Armen des Pure-Corruption-Anführers Arthur "Kill" Killian entrissen und steht dem Mann gegenüber, der vor Jahren ihr Leben zerstörte. Doch so schnell gibt sie ihre neu gewonnene Freiheit nicht auf. Und auch Kill wird alles tun, um sie zu beschützen - selbst wenn das bedeutet, das Blut seiner eigenen Familie zu vergießen ...

Pepper Winters - Fourth ​a Lie
“There ​was a truth once. Truth we shared in the dark and scribed scars upon our hearts. There was a lie once. A lie that shattered our hard-earned truth apart.” Eleanor Grace did the unbelievable. She fell for a man who trades in women, dabbles in myth, and has the morals of a cold-hearted beast. However, love isn’t enough where past sins are concerned and only pain can follow. Sully Sinclair did the impossible. He gave his trust to a goddess who has the ultimate power to break him. Unfortunately, paradise is just an illusion, his islands aren’t impenetrable, and now he has to pay the price. A fledgling connection. A war they can’t stop. A future that doesn’t bow to fate.

Pepper Winters - Unseen ​Messages
"There ​is a message for everything. From handwritten to verbal, seen and unseen. Messages exist all around us.” But what if you don't see? What if you don't understand? What if, by ignoring the message, your life is never the same again? Estelle Evermore morphed from nobody to somebody overnight. Galloway Oak put his past behind him and endeavoured to make his fortune using his trade. Two strangers. One plane. Multiple unseen messages. From sky to island, they find neither fame nor skills can save them. Stripped from society and left alone to survive the elements, the very task of staying alive outweighs all other needs. Until survival turns to desire. And desire turns to danger. From New York Times Bestseller Pepper Winters comes a timeless love story answering the question of what happens when everything is stripped away. Standalone.

Pepper Winters - The ​Son & His Hope
A ​Sweeping, Heart-wrenching Standalone from New York Times Bestseller Pepper Winters. "Things you should know about me from the very beginning: I was born to true love, witnessed the destruction it causes, and vowed never to let such agony happen to me. I am not a story-teller like my father. I am not a writer like my mother. I am just a son--their son. I am happy being alone. And that is all I ever want to be." JACOB The day he was born, Jacob learned his hardest and longest lesson. It wasn't a lesson a boy should learn so young, but from his earliest memories he knew where happiness lives, so does tragedy. Where love exists, so does heartbreak. And where hope resides, so does sorrow. That lesson carved him from the kid to the teen to the man. And nothing and no one could change his mind. HOPE I first met him when he was fourteen at a movie premiere of all places. A movie based on his parent's life. He was stoic, strong, suspicious, and secretive. I was only ten, but I felt something for him. A strange kind of heartbreak that made me want to hug and heal him. I was the daughter of the actor hired to play his father. We shared similarities. I recognised parts of him because they were parts of me. But no matter how many times we met. No matter how many times I tried. He stayed true to his vow to never fall.

Pepper Winters - Throne ​of Truth (német)
Zwei ​Jahre seit Penn Everett sich auf die Suche nach einer Fremden machte, an die er in einer schicksalhaften Nacht sein Herz verlor. Zwei Tage seit er den Lügen, die sein Überleben sicherten, abgeschworen und sich entschieden hat, ihr die Wahrheit zu sagen. Doch es ist zu spät. Zwei Stunden sie zu finden und zu retten, während sie noch immer an seine Lügen glaubt. Zwei Minuten Um den Hass aus ihren Augen zu vertreiben und sie in seine Seele und sein Herz schauen zu lassen. Egal, wie sehr es schmerzt. Zwei Sekunden bis sie begreift, wer er wirklich ist. Zwei Atemzüge um aus der Tür zu stürmen. Zwei Herzschläge und alles ist vorbei ...

Pepper Winters - Pennies ​(francia)
La ​romance la plus sombre que vous avez jamais lue ! Autrefois, quand j’avais dix-huit ans, j’étais étudiante en psychologie. Maintenant, je suis la propriété d’un homme. Volée et vendue, je suis couverte de bleus depuis le jour où mon monde a changé, il y a deux ans. Je souffre en silence, je brûle de retrouver ma liberté. Mais pas question que je m’effondre. Je ne peux pas me le permettre. Et puis, il est arrivé. Elder Prest, le seul homme qui me regarde et qui me voit. Le seul qui soit plus cruel encore que mon maître. Il me veut pour des raisons que je ne comprends pas. Il me prend l’espace d’une nuit, puis il s’en va sans un regard en arrière. Jusqu’à ce qu’il revienne. Et que la vie devienne bien plus compliquée.

Pepper Winters - Fifth ​a Fury
"There ​was a beginning once. A beginning that started with being sold to a monster I fell for. There was an ending once. An ending that came cloaked in bloodshed and fury." Eleanor Grace is a simple mortal who has the power to topple a god. She captured his heart, fed him a different future, and fought for a fantasy that wasn’t make-believe but destiny. Sully Sinclair is a man masquerading as a monster. He let down his shields and allowed a goddess to show him a simpler path. However, neither of them could predict the war that was coming, nor the toll it would take. A fated romance. A fight that will finish in tears.

Pepper Winters - Tears ​of Tess 1.
Die ​australische Studentin Tess bricht mit ihrem Freund zu einer romantischen Reise nach Mexiko auf. Sie hofft auf Spaß, viel Sex und die Gelegenheit, ihm endlich ihre geheimen Fantasien zu offenbaren, die so gar nichts mit süßer Anbetung und Kuschelsex zu tun haben. Aber dann dringt der Schrecken in ihr Leben. Tess gerät in die Fänge skrupelloser Frauenhändler und wird nach Frankreich an einen geheimnisvollen Millionär als Sexsklavin verkauft. Plötzlich werden ihre dunklen Fantasien auf abstoßende Weise wahr … Verrucht, heiß, ergreifend. Jedes Buch von Pepper Winters ist eine gewaltige Reise voller Schmerz und Leidenschaft.

Pepper Winters - Throne ​of Truth
TWO ​YEARS Since my life changed for the second time and not necessarily for the better. Two years since I traded prison bars for streets and hunted a runaway who I’d met in an alley. TWO DAYS Since I forgot how to lie, woke to fists, and chased after the girl who’d been stolen from me. TWO HOURS To save her, rescue her, keep my lies intact. She looks at me full of hate. I look at her full of confession. TWO MINUTES For our relationship to switch from mutual dislike to floundering with unknowns. I’ve hurt her. Now, she’s hurt me. I guess we’re even. TWO SECONDS For her to listen, to see, to finally know who I am. The answer comes with hardship. The answer isn’t what she wants to hear. TWO BREATHS For me to walk out the door. TWO HEARTBEATS For it all to be over.

Pepper Winters - Thousands
“Love ​had been stolen from me for reasons entirely my fault. But then a miracle happened, and Pim gave me something I thought was lost forever. She gave me a love I’d earned. Love that ruined me. Love that made me hopelessly hers…” Once upon a time, I didn’t think I’d ever be normal. Now, I’m talking and trusting, and it’s all thanks to Elder. He gave me my life back, and I gave him my heart, but love stories like ours are never simple. I did something to protect him. He did something to survive me. We screwed up. And now, it’s no longer just about us. It’s about safety, sanctuary, and sin.

Pepper Winters - Dollars ​(német)
Die ​schwer verletzte Pim ist zwar gerettet, doch nicht frei: Ihr Gefängnis ist jetzt eine Yacht mitten im Ozean. Ihr neuer Besitzer ist ein steinreicher, kaltblütiger Killer, der verwirrend anziehend auf die schweigende Sklavin wirkt. Ja, Pim verdankt Elder Prest ihr Leben. Aber dennoch ist er ein Monster. Und er will alles von ihr. Ihre Stimme ist nur der Anfang …

Pepper Winters - Crown ​of Lies
“I ​met the boy I wanted. But then he vanished and a new man claimed me instead. My father approved, my colleagues congratulated, and behind closed doors, I was bedded by a stranger.” Noelle Charlston lived a fairy-tale life: a doting father, a powerful job, and a future blessed with financial security. However, two meetings with two men changed her happy existence forever. First, she met the boy who made her heart sing. Second, she met the man who made her blood quiver. Noelle’s freedom was no longer hers. It belonged to the man her father believed was the perfect match. The man who pulled his lies over everyone he touched. Including her. Seduced and manipulated, Noelle lives two lives. The one everyone sees on the outside and the one no one sees on the inside. The lies he spins, the truth he hides, the mystery he webs—it’s all enough to slowly erode the woman she’d been and turn her into something else. Until her past collides with her present. And it’s her turn to lie. To everyone…including herself.

Pepper Winters - Dollars ​(francia)
La ​romance la plus sombre que vous avez jamais lue ! Autrefois, j’étais une prisonnière muette et lasse de vivre. Désormais, je suis retenue contre mon gré sur un yacht. L’homme qui m’a sauvée et enlevée me réclame ma voix et tous mes secrets. Je ne céderai pas. Mais Elder s’obstine. À force d’insistance et de cajoleries, il découvre peu à peu qui je suis. Il est riche. Je n’ai rien. Je suis muette par choix, il est curieux par nature. Tant de raisons qui font que notre liaison serait vouée à l’échec. Mais cela n’empêche pas la passion de naître. Jusqu’à ce qu’une nuit, il gâche tout. Et que notre relation s’envenime, souillée par le péché.

Pepper Winters - Debt ​Inheritance
“I ​own you. I have the piece of paper to prove it. It’s undeniable and unbreakable. You belong to me until you’ve paid off your debts.” Nila Weaver’s family is indebted. Being the first born daughter, her life is forfeit to the first born son of the Hawks to pay for sins of ancestors past. The dark ages might have come and gone, but debts never leave. She has no choice in the matter. She is no longer free. Jethro Hawk receives Nila as an inheritance present on his twenty-ninth birthday. Her life is his until she’s paid off a debt that’s centuries old. He can do what he likes with her—nothing is out of bounds—she has to obey. There are no rules. Only payments.

Pepper Winters - The ​Boy and his Ribbon
“What ​do you do when you meet your soul mate? No wait…that’s too easy. What do you do when you meet your soul mate and have to spend a lifetime loving him in secret? I’ll tell you what you do. You lie.” REN Ren was eight when he learned that love doesn’t exist—that the one person who was supposed to adore him only cared how much he was worth. His mother sold him and for two years, he lived in terror. But then…he ran. He thought he’d run on his own. Turned out, he took something of theirs by accident and it became the one thing he never wanted and the only thing he ever needed. DELLA I was young when I fell in love with him, when he switched from my world to my everything. My parents bought him for cheap labour, just like they had with many other kids, and he had the scars to prove it. At the start, he hated me, and I could understand why. For years he was my worst enemy, fiercest protector, and dearest friend. But by the end…he loved me. The only problem was, he loved me in an entirely different way to the way I loved him. And slowly, my secret drove us apart.

Pepper Winters - Third ​a Kiss
“There ​was hate once. Hate born from dangerous attraction and fate’s cruel design. There was love once. Love destined to kill us if we didn’t surrender to our war.” Eleanor Grace suffers an awful affliction. She’s falling for a man who doesn’t deserve her affection or her forgiveness. But there is no cure, so she does something reckless, stupid—she throws safety to the sea and leaps into danger. Sully Sinclair suffers the same affliction. He’s falling for a goddess who will never earn his trust or his heart if he can help it. However, he wasn’t prepared for the lengths she’d go. How far she’d push to either stop such a bond or kill them both trying. An elixir given to a monster. A goddess running for her life. An ending neither of them can survive.

Pepper Winters - Third ​Debt
“She ​healed me. She broke me. I set her free. But we are in this together. We will end this together. The rules of this ancient game can’t be broken.” Nila Weaver no longer recognises herself. She’s left her lover, her courage, and her promise. Two debts down. Too many to go. Jethro Hawk no longer recognises himself. He’s embraced what he always ran from, and now faces punishment far greater than he feared. It’s almost time. It’s demanding to be paid. The Third Debt will be the ultimate test...

Pepper Winters - Larmes ​amères
Tess ​Snow a tout pour être heureuse : une brillant avenir professionnel et un petit ami fou amoureux d’elle. Pour l’anniversaire de leur rencontre, Brax lui offre un voyage surprise au Mexique. Plages de sable blanc, cocktails exotiques, soirées torrides : tous les ingrédients sont réunis pour des vacances de rêve. Mais très vite, c’est la descente aux enfers : Tess se fait kidnapper. Captive terrifiée, elle se mue en farouche insoumise. Mais son courage ne lui épargnera pas l’horreur. Brax la retrouvera-t-il avant qu’elle ne soit brisée ? Ou le nouveau maître de Tess changera-t-il sa vie à jamais ?

Pepper Winters - Twice ​a Wish
“There ​was a monster once. A monster who bought me, controlled me, and took away my freedom. There was a man once. A man who dealt in myth and secrets, hiding behind his mask, making me hunger and wish to know the truth.” Eleanor Grace belongs to the man and the monster, hating them both but unable to deny that something links them. Something she doesn’t want to feel, something that traps her as surely as the sea surrounding the island where she serves. Sully Sinclair belongs to his past and the black and white script his life has become. He views his goddesses as commodities—possessions to be treated kindly but firmly. The only problem is…Eleanor is different. She’s jinxed him. Cursed him. Awakened him. She’s a goddess with the power to ruin him.

Pepper Winters - Tears ​of Tess 4.
Es ​gab warnende Hinweise: Schon am Abend, als Q mit Tess in einem Restaurant aß, fühlte er sich beobachtet. Später dringen Gangster in ihr Hotelzimmer ein und verschleppen Q ...

Pepper Winters - Larmes ​silencieuses
Tess ​ne parvient toujours pas à oublier ceux qui l’ont torturée et doit à présent se reconstruire. Q désire l’épouser et par-dessus tout la sauver de ses cauchemars. Après avoir trouvé comment guérir Tess, il décide de l’emmener à Paris afin de lui faire signer un contrat de mariage, la désignant comme sa seule héritière. Mais alors que tous deux passent la nuit la plus torride de leur vie dans un palace à Rome, Q est rattrapé par ses ennemis. Cette fois-ci ce sera à Tess de se battre corps et âme pour l’homme qu’elle aime.

Pepper Winters - Pennies ​(német)
Es ​war einmal … Ich war 18 Jahre alt und Studentin. Dann wurde ich erwürgt, wiederbelebt und verkauft. Jetzt bin ich Pimlico und das Eigentum eines kranken Bastards, gefangen in einem Martyrium aus Schmerz und Erniedrigung. Ich leide und schweige. Aber ich gebe nicht auf. Ich kann nicht. Und dann betrat er meinen Käfig der Stille: Elder Prest. Der einzige Mann, der mich anschaute und mich tatsächlich sah. Der einzige Mann, der gnadenloser ist als mein Besitzer. Er will mich aus Gründen, die ich nicht verstehe ...

Pepper Winters - Twisted ​Together
“After ​battling through hell, I brought my esclave back from the brink of ruin. I sacrificed everything—my heart, my mind, my very desires to bring her back to life. And for a while, I thought it broke me, that I’d never be the same. But slowly the beast is growing bolder, and it’s finally time to show Tess how beautiful the dark can be.” Q gave everything to bring Tess back. In return, he expects nothing less. Tess may have leashed and tamed him, but he’s still a monster inside. After surviving the darkness, a new dawn has begun. Twisted Together wades through black to grey, chasing the light of true love to banish the shadows forever. Pain is a requirement, connection a necessity. But ultimately Q and Tess must face their demons, before they can embrace their future.

Pepper Winters - Quintessentially ​Q
“All ​my life, I battled with the knowledge I was twisted… fucked up to want something so deliciously dark—wrong on so many levels. But then slave fifty-eight entered my world. Hissing, fighting, with a core of iron, she showed me an existence where two wrongs make a right." Tess is Q’s completely. Q is Tess’s irrevocably. But now, they must learn the boundaries of their unconventional relationship, while Tess seeks vengeance on the men who sold her. Q made a blood-oath to deliver their corpses at Tess’s feet, and that’s just what he’ll do. He may be a monster, but he’s Tess’s monster.

Pepper Winters - Je ​suis à toi
“Life ​taught me an eternal love will demand the worst sacrifices. A transcendent love will split your soul, cleaving you into pieces. A love this strong doesn’t grant you sweetness—it grants you pain. And in that pain is the greatest pleasure of all.” Q made me the happiest esclave in the world. He gave me his heart, his empire, his ruthless unforgiving love. And life finally left us in peace. A man like my maître has special needs though, growing stronger as our lives intertwine. The only way to survive his monster is to agree to all his desires. Including his latest wish. I’m his. And I won’t refuse.

Pepper Winters - The ​Finished Masterpiece
“Must ​be slim, able to stand for long periods of time, and be impervious to the cold.” The headline caught my attention. “Hours are negotiable, pay is minimal, clothing absolutely forbidden.” The second line piqued my curiosity. “Able to hold your bladder and tongue, refrain from opinions or suggestions, and be the perfect living canvas.” The third made me scowl. “Other attributes required: non-ticklish, contortionist, and obedient. Must also enjoy being studied while naked in a crowd.” The fourth made me shudder. “Call or email ‘YOUR SKIN, HIS CANVAS’ if interested in applying.” The final made my heart race. I should’ve kept scrolling past the advertisement. I should’ve applied for the boring receptionist job at minimum wage. I should’ve clicked on any other job where I got to keep my clothes on. But I didn’t. I applied. My interview is tomorrow… And THE LIVING CANVAS “Must be brave, stubborn, and impervious to the tempers of loved ones.” The first line hissed with history. “Hours are endless, pay is non-existence, quitting absolutely forbidden.” The second line ached with truth. “Able to function on no sleep, refrain from running when times get hard, and be more than just a living canvas but a lover.” The third thrummed with honesty. “Other attributes required: forgiving, opinionated, and not afraid to tell me when I’m wrong. Must also enjoy being touched and kissed at any time of my choosing.” The fourth glowed with promise. “Call or email ‘YOUR HEART, HIS SOUL’ if interested in applying.” The final made my future unfold. The advert was so similar to one I should never have applied for. A twist of fate that brought two destined people back together. A job I would take in a heartbeat if the employer could offer such terms. But I wasn’t free. Neither was Gil. Therefore, my interview could never happen.
