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.

Review

To No One,

There’s no one who does dark romance like Pepper Winters, and in her newest release, Pennie$, she BRINGS it – the shadows, the gore, the screams, the brutality, the devils, and the deadly silence. All of it’s there to push the characters and readers to their limit. And let me tell you, no one, they will not only be pushed, but they will be tumbling head first into an abyss that is a cesspool of evil and violence – it’s so dark that it will leave a lasting impression on everyone who delves into Pim’s captivity and ultimately, her dance with the devil and his henchmen.

Pimlico is a true Winters’ heroine because despite all that’s done to her…all that’s stolen from her…all that she must give up when she is stripped of her freedom, she’s still able to dictate her internal/external responses and have some sense of power in the weapons she chooses to wield.

For much of the story, readers must endure Pim’s mental and physical mistreatment right along with her, and while some actions are not vividly described, it’s still clear the abuse she suffers at the hand of her master. Through Winters’ powerful diction and her highly descriptive scenes, the painful process of Pim’s brokenness – both in body and soul – is felt down to the core. As every piece of her humanity is stripped away, readers can only question how much more Pim can take until her last bit of strength dwindles away with everything that she’s tried to keep locked away from her hellish existence.

So far, no one, Elder Prest is a wild card, an elusive man whose lifestyle has been inferred but not explicitly explained. It’s clear that Prest is a man of many nefarious talents, and in terms of right/wrong and good/bad, he unequivocally resides on the darker side of both. Pim intrigues him and he wants to steal her secrets and use them against her, but what that means for Pim remains unclear because her thoughts are worth more than a penny and even a dollar, so what it will take break the silence will be determined by more than just pieces of paper.

I have no idea where this series is headed, no one, but I do know that Pepper Winters’ storytelling continually leaves me spellbound, and even though Pim and Elder’s story is only just beginning, I’m already invested and intrigued with how a slave and a thief’s journey will take them to millions.

A complimentary copy was provided in exchange for an honest review.

Excerpt

Fuck 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.”
