“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 fulfill 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 by Lorena
Pepper Winters is the queen of dark romance books!
This woman knows how to write a damn good book or series that will leave you aching for more as her books end.
I was completely flabbergasted when I finished reading Pennies! So intense, raw, painful and intriguing
This story will have you completely captivated if you like to read dark romance novels. I think with time Ms. Peppers' books keep getting more and more intense and I love that because it makes me come back for more from her.
Ms. Peppers is a phenomenal writer and her books are, out of this world, fantastic.
In Pennies you meet a young girl who lives life without any hope or expectations after living the life she has been living but then a mysterious man comes in and it seems like time stands still when he's around. She's not allowed to look, feel, touch but when he's around that's all she aches to do. She doesn't speak a word and that's by choice, not because she can't. She's a mystery to men and this one particular young man has been captivated by her and is highly intrigued and wants to know more of her but she doesn't allow that with anyone.
The challenges this series is going to be bringing us are going to be extremely difficult to have to wait and wait and wait to continue reading because they leave you off with the hopes of getting the next installment like RIGHT NOW!
I have to say that Ms. Peppers has become one of my favorite authors because her books are so full of mystery, intrigue and so highly intense
5 phenomenal stars for this great start to a series!
