Ian Hart stole a night of my life but he took so much more. His obsession pinned a label on me. His lust put me in an impossible situation. Now I have to choose sides. I have to decide between right and wrong. Only, no matter what choice I make, each comes with dreadful consequences. There’s only one way this can end—how every tragedy ends.

His voice lowers with intent. “Know this, if you do run, I’ll slap a pair of ankle cuffs on you so fast you won’t have time to say my name. There’ll be no more playing nice. I’ll tie you to my bed if that’s what I have to do.” Cupping my jaw, he delivers the threat with a soft kiss on my lips. “The choice is yours.”
The heavy blow is dealt with tender words. They sift down like snowflakes to settle cold in my heart. I tremble as he pushes me down onto the hood and leans over me.
“What will it be, Cas?”
He’s not asking if I’m on board with this limited version of freedom. When he unbuttons my jeans, he’s asking a different question, and, as always, when he slips his hand into my underwear, he gets the truth.

#3 Stolen Love – Releasing June 22

COVER REVEAL: The Finished Masterpiece boxset by Pepper Winters


An angsty, secretive romance where the heroine is selfless with her kindness and a hero who does his best to push her away. Set in a world of body paint, lies, and history.

“This is one intense, emotional, thrilling & beautiful journey.” 5 Stars, MissPetiteBrunette, Amazon Review

From NY Times and US Today Bestselling author, Pepper Winters, comes The Finished Masterpiece. For the first time since release, grab THE BODY PAINTER & THE LIVING CANVAS in one boxed set edition!

“Must be slim, able to stand for long periods of time, and be impervious to the cold.”
The headline caught my attention.
“Hours are negotiable, pay is minimal, clothing absolutely forbidden.”
The second line piqued my curiosity.
“Able to hold your bladder and tongue, refrain from opinions or suggestions, and be the perfect living canvas.”
The third made me scowl.
“Other attributes required: non-ticklish, contortionist, and obedient. Must also enjoy being studied while naked in a crowd.”
The fourth made me shudder.
“Call or email ‘YOUR SKIN, HIS CANVAS’ if interested in applying.”
The final made my heart race.
I should’ve kept scrolling past the advertisement.
I should’ve applied for the boring receptionist job at minimum wage.
I should’ve clicked on any other job where I got to keep my clothes on.
But I didn’t.
I applied.
My interview is tomorrow…

“Must be brave, stubborn, and impervious to the tempers of loved ones.”
The first line hissed with history.
“Hours are endless, pay is non-existence, quitting absolutely forbidden.”
The second line ached with truth.
“Able to function on no sleep, refrain from running when times get hard, and be more than just a living canvas but a lover.”
The third thrummed with honesty.
“Other attributes required: forgiving, opinionated, and not afraid to tell me when I’m wrong. Must also enjoy being touched and kissed at any time of my choosing.”
The fourth glowed with promise.
“Call or email ‘YOUR HEART, HIS SOUL’ if interested in applying.”
The final made my future unfold.
The advert was so similar to one I should never have applied for.
A twist of fate that brought two destined people back together.
A job I would take in a heartbeat if the employer could offer such terms.
But I wasn’t free.
Neither was Gil.
Therefore, my interview could never happen.

“This story carries an undeniable energy that takes your breath away.” 5 Stars, Joyce, Goodreads Review

“Reaching blindly behind me, I snatched another paint bottle. I ripped off the cap while he still fought for my wrists, then dumped the entire thing on his head.
Oozy, thick yellow licked through his messy dark hair, slithering to his temples and cascading down his cheeks.
He froze as sunshine pigment snaked down his forehead, danced in his left eyebrow, before dripping off his eyelashes.
I didn’t move.
He breathed harsh through his nose, not attempting to prevent the migration of yellow. A droplet landed on my blouse, smearing over the blue. I rubbed it with my fingertip, blending the two together until a vibrant green formed.
Like Gil’s eyes.
Like the school field we used to walk over.
For the trees we’d hang out beneath.
He sucked in a breath as I looked up. My body no longer screamed at him to leave me alone. It liquefied just like the paint, moulding to him, warming against him, changing its molecules the longer he stared.
My heart hammered as he reached behind me, his eyes flickering to the rainbow of shades. Selecting one, he twisted off the cap.
A rich, fuchsia that glowed with femininity and fun.
Without a word, he tipped a generous dollop onto my chest, tearing at my blouse buttons until they popped and the fabric gaped open.”
Pepper currently has thirty-one books released in nine languages. She’s hit best-seller lists (USA Today, New York Times, and Wall Street Journal) thirty-seven times. She dabbles in multiple genres, ranging from Dark Romance to Coming of Age.

COVER REVEAL: This Forbidden Love by Rebecca Sharp


From bestselling author, Dr. Rebecca Sharp, comes the addictive and consuming romance between a student and her art professor.


"Troy and Leo's story is one of those epic, unforgettable and out of this world love stories those mark you forever."

Troian Milanovic was looking for a fresh start. New home. New school. New distractions.
And switching her major from science to art should’ve been enough to distance herself from the damage and betrayal she left behind.

Until she met the man with the seductive, sea-deep eyes who looked right into her soul. Eyes that stoked a desire so bright it was impossible to ignore. Unfortunately, those eyes were attached to the cold smirk of a callous man—Léo Baudin. Her new art professor.

Léo went beyond the typical brooding artist—he was a masculine masterpiece that was both caustic and captivating. But his harsh criticisms and rude retorts can’t dim the longing in his eyes. Or the way it makes Troy burn for him.

Anger. Loathing. Lust. Some feelings are unavoidable. Inescapable. Especially when they are completely forbidden.

And when Troy lets him behind her walls, she’ll realize he was the wooden horse full of dangerous secrets she never saw coming. But by then it was too late. Too late to stop wanting the forbidden fruit. Too late to not fight for a love that never should’ve existed. Even if it costs them everything.

"Student teacher books if done right like this one are my kryptonite. And this one was perfection at its very best." - Kitty Kat's Crazy About Books
“This duet is the most amazing age gap taboo that I've read.” - Katie, GR Reviewer
"You NEED this if you enjoy a forbidden, age gap romance between a professor and student!" - Isabella, GR Reviewer

*Includes both full-length novels:
The Fall of Troy
The Judgment of Paris

Dr. Rebecca Sharp, while using a pen name, is actually a doctor living in Pennsylvania with her husband - the love of her life.
She enjoys working in her practice with her father as well as letting her creativity run free as an author. Growing up she's always loved a good love story and finally decided to give writing one of her own a go.
After graduating with her doctoral degree, she now enjoys spending that thing called free time traveling with her husband, cooking, and knitting.
