Twisted Together (Monsters in the Dark, Book #3) by Pepper Winters
Release Date: June 3, 2014
“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.
Anguish. Pain. Pleasure. Release. Its an understatement to say I fell in love with Q and Tess in ToT and again in QQ. My heart and stomach went through blow after blow. I felt like I was standing in gusts of winds so powerful it left me breathless. Q and Tess’ soul-deep connection gave me chills. The emotions they experienced were raw, dark, and real given their experiences and their desires. I couldn’t tear my eyes away yet I needed breaks with how powerful I was moved and the heart stomping intensity of scenes had me feeling suffocated. I hate for their story to end. How it ended was beautiful and fitting for them and their journey. This dark, sensual, gentle, painful ride left me feeling high and encompassed all I look for in art. It moved me, I was with them in their locations, I was connected and will be for a long time. Q and Tess’ friends have also grown into my heart and I would love to see how Suzette and Franco make out in their journey (pun intended). I’ll be feeling this for a long time. Give this a try and find your next crush!! Rating: 5 stars
A love story so dark, so raw, so edgy, so epic, and so perfectly Twisted Together, it’s almost impossible to know, to feel, where Q ends and Tess begins. A love between two people so fierce, so powerful it radiates off the pages and burns your soul. ~ Q ~ “You and me. We need this.”
~ Q ~ “I’m going to have to make you believe in order to make you free. Do you understand? Everything I do, even if I lose myself along the way, remember I love you so f***ing much. I’m doing this for you.”
Q and Tess fight with such passion and ferocity to lay their demons to rest no matter the sacrifice. ~ Q ~ “When it takes you, don’t fight. I’ll keep you safe.”
Two lovers, so conflicted, each feel undeserving of the other, yet their chemistry, a bond, a love so powerful, nothing will separate them in this life or the next.
~ Q ~ “This was my burden. I was the reason she was broken. I was the reason she’d lost so much. And I was the only one who could bring her back. And I had to do it before….”
Twisted Together is a love story so dark, so beautiful, and perfectly written with characters so intoxicating you will effortlessly get swept away in all that is Q and Tess. A perfect end to an epic love story.
~ 5 ~ You’re my monster in the dark ~ Stars!!
Q no longer looked devilish but royal.
My heart flew free, fluttering to the ceiling.
“Donne-moi tes mains.” Give me your hands. The order whispered through the golden light, quintessentially him. His raspy, melodic voice had a power over me he wasn’t aware of. I instantly locked my wrists together, jutting them toward him.
Q didn’t say a word as he accepted my gift, wrapping soft, black fabric around me. The silk looked like morbid blood, as if I’d slashed my wrists in a fit of insanity.
The moment he’d restrained me, Q tugged the cord, making me stretch even further across the table, securing it somehow. Once tied, he strolled back toward me, setting my heart jumping and body dissolving under his intense stare.
My back was icy cold while my front was toasty warm. The two sensations, coupled with my lack of mobility, made my lungs suck in air as if oxygen was about to go extinct. The closer Q came, the more lightheaded and woozy I was.
I flinched as he cupped my ass.
“What are you going to do?” I didn’t bother testing the binds. I knew Q—he had a way with ropes—there would be no chance of escape.
“Sometimes, the only way to make your dreams come true is to shatter them,” he said, circling me like a predator. “Sometimes, the only way to make your nightmares disappear is by facing them.”

Tears of Tess (Monsters in the Dark, Book #1)
“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?
Quintessentially Q (Monsters in the Dark, Book #2)
“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.
