““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.

First book in this fantastic series.
There are two books in this serial, Crown of Lies and Throne of Truth. The first book has a cliffhanger, but the second book is already available. Buy them both, now. I had to wait a week.
I lived, but I was cranky about it.
Pepper Winter's stories can sometimes be dark and kinky. This one is mild compared to some others and just as amazing. The plot is uber mysterious and oh so sexy.
It's also sweet and angsty.
The characters are multi dimensional and human. Super realistic and relatable.
Elle works too hard and has since she was twelve. An actual poor little rich girl. Trapped in her CEO life trying to please everyone but herself.
Penn saves Elle one night and disappears but they never stop thinking of each other.
The sparks are magical and the suspense makes you itchy to skip ahead. Don't do it. Read every word. It's too juicy to skip parts.
Love this author.
OH my Jesus
This book has me so on edge! Pepper winters is a master story teller. This story is crazy intense. I want ...no..I need to know what is going to happen! Amazing.
Review: Truth and Lies 1: Crown of Lies
Crown of Lies by Pepper Winters is the first book in her brand new Truth and Lies duet. Christ this woman can write some fantastic stories!
Elle is the star of this story and we get two phases in her life - her nineteenth birthday when everything just went horribly wrong except for the nameless boy that saved her life and set her soul on fire. And today, when she is fully in control of her families multi-generational department story dynasty and has the world at her fingertips but still longs for that one nameless boy.
Spoilers and all that - this story is amazeballs, ends in a cliffhanger and the next book will be out February 28, 2017 (Throne of Truth). Enjoy!
