“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.”
Noelle Charlston lived a fairy-tale life: a doting father, a powerful job, and a future blessed with financial security.
However, two meetings with two men changed her happy existence forever. First, she met the boy who made her heart sing. Second, she met the man who made her blood quiver.
Noelle’s freedom was no longer hers. It belonged to the man her father believed was the perfect match. The man who pulled his lies over everyone he touched.
Seduced and manipulated, Noelle lives two lives. The one everyone sees on the outside and the one no one sees on the inside. The lies he spins, the truth he hides, the mystery he webs—it’s all enough to slowly erode the woman she’d been and turn her into something else.
Until her past collides with her present.
And it’s her turn to lie.
To everyone…including herself.
Wait until you meet Penn Everett!!! Holy hell guys!!! This man! Pepper Winters SHOCKS, STUNS, and AMAZES once again, in her release of CROWN OF LIES! Get ready for the book hangover to end ALL book hangovers! I LOVED IT!
I mean all you have to do is READ THE BLURB and you will be HOOKED! Winters always pushes boundaries with her readers and in CROWN OF LIES she does just that! She reels us in and intoxicates us and pushes us to the edge where we have no choice but to fall down the rabbit hole and immerse ourselves in her EPIC-NESS!
“I promise you, I’ll use you. I’ll use you every morning and night. I’ll use you on your knees. I’ll use you strapped to my bed. But with every use, you’ll beg for another. You’ll beg me, Elle.”
Do you see where I’m going with this? CROWN OF LIES is laced with mystery, intrigue, and passion. It’s filled with twists at every turn. With every page, comes a new mind-fuck. Sensuality just drips off of every page, making it IMPOSSIBLE to put down. I just couldn’t get enough! Elle and Penn are captivating characters. The push/pull between these two is quite intense. You can try to get your read on these characters the best you can, but in the end, you will not know which way is up with these two. So much passion. So much hate. So many questions. If you are not a fan of book hangovers then you are looking in the wrong place, because I had one that I’m still reeling from. I know with a Pepper Winters’ book you aren’t looking for a quick and easy resolution are you? Ha! Silly you! You should know better. Winters kicks us in the gut, messes with our minds, and shreds are heart by the end of the book. But it’s welcome because I knew what I was getting in to. I wouldn’t expect anything less.
CROWN OF LIES by Pepper Winters was just pure dark magic! The writing was spectacular, and the characters were EVERYTHING. If I’m feeling this way with only reading book one in this new duet, book two is sure to be just as stellar, making this a duet you will not soon forget!
