Waiting On Wednesday: Last Shadow by Pepper Winters

Waiting On Wednesday is a weekly event, hosted by Breaking The Spine that spotlights upcoming releases that we're eagerly anticipating.

Last Shadow by Pepper Winters
Expected publication: April 2014
“My life wasn’t perfect but at least it was mine. Now, I live in hell and owned by others. I fell for a guy who promised me the world and sold me for five kilos of cocaine. I want nothing more than to end this existence of abuse and slavery. I’m not weak. I’m not giving up. I’m just done.”

Owned. Possessed. Used.

Lyric is a whore. After three years as a pawn in a high class game of bastards and sex, she’s had enough. Every hope and dream she’s ever had is inked on her skin—a reminder of why she should stay alive. But she’s lost all hope and the moment she runs out of flesh to tattoo, Lyric will find freedom. Freedom by death. As her last breath fast approaches, she needs nothing and no one…until him.

Kage was born to be one thing: a killer. Trained from birth, he’s an expert in blood and extermination—the last shadow his victims ever see. He’s the best at his profession; a ruthless, unfeeling assassin. He needs nothing and no-one…until her.

A man who lives to kill and a woman who wants to die. A serendipitous match…or so they thought.


A New Adult Dark Contemporary Romance, not suitable for people sensitive to slavery, cruelty, and non-consensual sex. A story about a killer with no remorse, a woman living in nightmares, and a future that binds them in servitude.

Knowing Pepper's other books, I have a feeling this one will be so good!

That blurb is just... wow! I can't wait. Give this book to me already!
