“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..

Goddammit, she said I scarred her soul… would she let me scar her skin? Tess stood in front of me. Her toned legs splayed, hands on her hips. So proud and regal in her own body. I couldn’t tear my eyes away. My mouth went dry as the beast inside prowled and hurled itself against the cage, trying so hard to get at her. To rip her. Ravage her.

“I understand you want me to show you what my fantasies are, but you have to give me time, esclave.” My heart raced at the word. For four days, I refused to call her anything but Tess. She wasn’t my slave. She wasn’t my possession. Never had been and never would be. I hated how even though I knew she was there on her own accord, I still wanted ultimate ownership. I wanted her chained and completely dependent on me. I wanted to feed her and bathe her. I wanted to be the very reason she stayed alive. Fuck, I should get a pet.

Every shallow breath was a hardship as Q slowly cut off my air supply. When I grew lightheaded, Q licked his lips and bent to kiss me. The rough dominance of his fingers didn’t match the soft sensual kiss he bestowed. 

He didn’t kiss me. He worshiped me.

What five words describe Pepper Winter’s the AUTHOR? 

Hardworking, Passionate, Loyal, Travel obsessed, Book and laptop addicted 
(more than five words but I’m bending the rules) J 

What five words describe the person behind the author? 

A little insecure about her writing, completely blown away by the fans who love her work, in love with her hubby, constantly cold (must move to a hot climate), has insomnia. 

(again more than 5 but you get 5 bullet points) lol 

If you were given the task of walking up to somebody random in the street and you were to explain your book to them in a short speech what would you tell them? Not your book blurb, but something more...deeper. 

Crap, that’s a hard question. Um, It’s about two characters who, together they suffer, but together they find redemption. A book about finding your perfect other, even if fate decides to screw you over along the way. 

About Tears of Tess. I was doing some interview research and it sounds WOW! What quote from the book is the most powerful you think you wrote? 

I’m not sure the strongest wrong I wrote, but personal favourite it: “My name is Tess Snow. Not Sweetie, or Tessie, or Honey. I’m a woman only now realizing what she’s capable of. I’m no one’s daughter. I’m no one’s girlfriend. I’m no one’s possession. I belong to me, and for the first time, I know how powerful that is.” 

And my fans favourite is “Monsters find each other in the Dark” 

What ten words describe Q Mercer? 

Broody, Tense, Lonely, Righteous, Heinous, Barbaric, Pure, Loyal, Generous, Demanding, Ruthless (was that ten?) lol 

What ten words would Q use to describe Tess? 

Courageous, Strong, Beautiful, Intelligent, Perfect, 58, His, Esclave, Argumentative 

What song do you think describes Q and Tess’s relationship and why? 

Oh, I don’t know about their relationship. I would love some help on this if everyone can suggest a tune? 

What has been the one thing that stands out to you in your journey as a writer? 

How much social marketing is as important / if not more than writing. I spend equal measures just hanging out on FB as I do writing. 

Quintessentially Q releases 15th December. Could you please give a non spoiler teaser quote? 

Sure. I’ve been editing all day so I have a good one for you. Here you go. 

**** R18**** 

“Enough,” Q roared. His chest strained as he pushed me hard against the cross. My back crashed against the eerily warm wood. I flinched when Q pressed his long frame against mine, sandwiching me completely. “Now is not the time to talk about hearts and falling, esclave. Now is the time for pain and fucking. See how the two don’t mix?” 

He pushed off, swiping his face with an angry palm. “I’m tired. Too tired to keep fighting. I want you. I’ve wanted to make you scream for four fucking long days. I tried to behave. I tried to stop the darkness, but you just wouldn’t let it go. And now it’s my turn. You’re going to give me what I want. Take this obsessive sick need from me and help grant me a reprieve.” 

Could you please give me images of who you think best represents Tess, Q and Brax. 

This I can’t do as in my mind they are who they are. Have a look at my account on pinterest. to see some images based on Q and Tess along with a bunch of teasers J

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. 
Her debut book Tears of Tess will be followed with Quintessentially Q. You didn’t think Q could stop so soon, did you? Her other two titles, Last Shadow and Broken Chance will be coming soon. 

Five facts about me you don’t know
Um, five facts…
I have insomnia and only sleep 4-5 hours (If I’m very lucky)
I can write up to 12,000 words a day, but don’t try and read it as the spelling hurts your eyes
I hate coffee.
I love Coke Zero
I took a month off work to write Quintessentially Q so the Tears of Tess fans didn’t have to wait too long

Interests and hobbies

I love to read. (duh)
I love to travel and lie in the sun doing nothing
I also love to scrapbook. I’m a nerd for all things glitter 


I love any book that makes me feel something. Any genre. Any author—I’m easy to please as long as the words make me believe.
