“I’m not the hero in this story, girl. You’d do best to remember that.”
At eighteen years old, I was murdered.
I wish my tale ended there.
However, my killer resuscitated me and sold me to the highest bidder, sentencing me to a world worse than Hell.
For the past two years, I’ve lived a life of torment as a man’s property. I suffer in silence and wish for freedom, but I never break.
But then he arrives.
The first stranger since I was killed.
Elder Prest, a thief with a heart as black as his soul, arrives as a guest in our twisted home. He has business with my owner, but his interest lies in me. He pretends not to notice my bruises and hides his knowledge of what I am, but the way he watches me makes me feel more human than possession.
As his eyes tear through my walls and his voice demands answers, he challenges my owner for one night with me.
I’ve survived two years of torment because I no longer believe in hope, but Elder is the only man who promises me pleasure instead of pain.
Trusting him is dangerous, wanting him is deadly.
Is he my ticket to safety or my ultimate end?
Whoever he is, whatever he wants…I can’t say no.

Imagine you are at a party and acting like you were taught by your emotionless parent. You are talking to a man that you have horrible feelings consuming you. You find yourself moments later being strangled to death by this stranger. This is what Tasmin lived. Tasmin was taken and sold to the highest bidder at the age of eighteen. She was a virgin and brutally molested by her owner.
Tasmin AKA Pimlico went through purgatory until Elder came into her life then the fun began….
Pepper Winters wrote descriptively but kept my imagination working. The story kept my interest. I was rooting for Pim to free herself. I couldn’t believe how strong and courageous that Pim was. I loved the ending and looking forward to the next installment of Pim and Elder.
