“I met the boy I wanted. But then he vanished and a new man claimed me instead. My father approved, my colleagues congratulated, and behind closed doors, I was bedded by a stranger.”
Crown of Lies is NOW LIVE!
WOW! Just Wow! This story is riveting from the opening to the final pages. It is thrilling, sexy, and gripping, everything I love in a suspenseful romance.
Elle is such a complex character. In the beginning, I thought she was going to be a typical heiress looking to get some “normality” in her life. Pepper Winters, however, makes her more than the stereotype. She is the dutiful daughter, yes, but she is the powerhouse CEO of Belle Elle with a backbone of steel. She doesn’t allow herself to be pushed around and stands her ground. Even when she succumbs to the wishes of Pen, it is her choice to do it, and when she is backed into a corner she comes out fighting. She is completely fierce.
Pen is an intriguing character, mainly because he is shrouded in mystery. Who is he? What is his history? How does he seem to know so much about Elle? Very little is actually shared about him, but this adds to his allure. Not only is the mystery enticing, he exudes sex with this confidence and dominance. It radiates off of him, and it is easy to see why Elle is seduced into their agreement. I absolutely love the darkness that seems to reside inside him, and I believe it will only grow with the continuation of the series.
This story is captivating from the very first page. The adventure, the danger, and the mystery will keep readers glued to the pages of this book. Every single chapters reveals a little bit of the mystery of Nameless, Elle, Pen, Larry, and Stewie. On top of the mystery, there is seduction and lust permeating each scene with Elle and Pen, making their relationship tantalizing. And the ending, that ending will blow readers away and leave them salivating for the conclusion.
Why have a waited so long to read Pepper Winters? If this story is any indicator of what her other books are like, it looks like not only will I be going on a Pepper Winters binge but I also have a new dark romance author to one-click. It is simply phenomenal.

“I met the man I wanted. But then he vanished, and a new man claimed me instead. My father approved, my colleagues congratulated, and behind closed doors, I was bedded by a stranger.”
Noelle Charlston lives a fairy-tale life: a doting father, a powerful job, and a future blessed with financial security.
However, two meetings with two men changes her happy existence forever. First, she meets the man who makes her heart sing. Three years later, she meets the man who makes her blood quiver.
Broken-hearted from a teenage romance, Noelle’s freedom is no longer hers. It belongs to the stranger her father believes is her perfect match. The stranger who pulls his lies over everyone he touches.
Seduced and manipulated, Noelle gives into the mysterious Penn Everett. The lies he spins, the truth he hides, the mystery he weaves—it’s all enough to slowly erode the woman she is and turn her into something else.
Until her past collides with her present.
And it’s her turn to lie.
To everyone…including herself.
