The highly anticipated conclusion to the Monsters in the Dark series.
“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.
I cannot wait for this book! I am desperately missing Tess and Q in my life. These books are what made me fall in love with Pepper and if you haven’t read them, jump on that!
Q stood up, pulling me to my feet. His arms banded around me as his chin rested on the top of my head. “Do you trust me, Tess?”
I don’t know.
I didn’t want to lie and I didn’t know the answer, so I said nothing.
Q gathered me harder. “This is why I have to do this. I need to earn your trust. You need to earn my trust. This is our crescent-moon, Tess. It’s more important than any honeymoon after the wedding. It’s about us fighting our fucking issues so they don’t taint our future.”
Pulling back, his pale eyes locked with mine, ensnaring me, sending my heart thrumming like a sparrow. “You and me. We need this. This crescent-moon will offer light in the never ending darkness. Give me seven days to turn our crescent-moon into a full moon and then an eclipse. Let me walk you through the fucking dark. Trust me to bring you back to the light.
He sounded like a bard from some romantic novel. His accented voice was hoarse and impassioned and swept up with promises. I had no idea what he had planned, and somehow I didn’t think even Q knew. But I did know he was right.
We needed this.
More than we knew.
“I’m yours for seven days, maître.”
He chuckled softly. “You’re mine for eternity, esclave. But the next seven days belong to our healing and putting our monsters to rest.”
A New Adult Dark Contemporary Romance, not suitable for people sensitive to grief, slavery, and nonconsensual sex. A story about finding love in the strangest of places, a will of iron that grows from necessity, and forgiveness that may not be enough.
“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?
“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.
