book blurb“At 18 I had pennies, but money didn’t make me bold. At 19 I had dollars, but it didn’t 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.”

“At 23 I had dollars, but life changed and made me rich. At 25 I had hundreds, but it wasn’t enough to stop my killing itch. At 27 I had thousands, but my reputation didn’t set me free. At 29 I had millions, but I met her and could finally see.”

Tasmin was killed on her 18th birthday. She had everything planned out. A psychology degree, a mother who pushed her to greatness, and a future anyone would die for. But then her murderer saved her life, only to sell her into a totally different existence.

Elder went from penniless to stinking rich with one twist of fate. His lifetime of crime and shadows of thievery are behind him but no matter the power he now wields, it’s not enough. He has an agenda to fulfil and he won’t stop until it’s complete.

But then they meet.

A beaten slave and a richly dressed thief. Money is what guided their separate fates. Money is what brought them together. And money is ultimately what destroys them.

She was poor.

He was rich.

Together…they were bankrupt.


excerptFuck 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. I’d already had my single touch when I’d petted her hair. I wasn’t permitted a second.

But it didn’t 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.

Shit.

I’d forgotten myself by feeling sorry for this beaten wraith, but she hadn’t forgotten her overwhelming hatred of men.

I didn’t look away. But I didn’t explain myself, either.

I’d borrowed her for the night. If I wanted to touch her, I could. The fact that she’d 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 waited…wanting 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.

“Don’t kneel. Not in here.”

my review

5 Stars

F@*k. This book. Stories like Pennies prove that there is truly someone for everyone.

I read Pepper Winters’ warning at the beginning of Pennies and I could not wait to meet her monster. I couldn’t wait to meet the woman who was strong enough to survive the abuse and horrors that was her entire existence.

Alrik or Master A as he prefers to be called, purchased Pim and made her his most ‘treasured’ possession. And by treasured, I mean he did everything in his power to break her. He raped and beat her; demeaned, punished and starved her. You name it, he’s tried it. Anything he could think of to bend her to his will.

But it doesn’t matter. Her inner strength is something to behold – Pim is brave and bold. Smart. Master A can destroy her body but he will never break her mind.

After years of torture, Elder enters Pim’s world. A mysterious man who came to do business with Alrik. He has a plan and he wants to stick to his own agenda. Except he cannot forget the slave at Alrick’s feet. She calls to him without ever even speaking. He sees that she is a kindred spirit.

Their journey together in Pennies is just beginning but it’s already intense. Passionate. Violent. But I am all in. I want more from Pim and Elder. Honestly, I can’t wait to see what happens next.

This series is not going to be for everyone.  However, I highly recommend it to fans of dark romance – I promise you will be intrigued and captivated by Pepper’s new characters and their world. She has written an amazingly twisted story that is the perfect love story for people who want a deeper, darker tale.
