Publisher Description

It’s the start of something huge.

From New York Times Bestseling Author, Pepper Winters, come a new Dark Romance full of decadence, darkness, and monstrous heroes.

A house hidden in the middle of nowhere.

A man who’s lived alone for a decade.

A woman who trespasses on his solitude.

A love full of hate as well as hunger.

The thing about my life is…I was never in control of it.

I just thought I was.

I thought I had everything figured out—a good career, fun hobbies, a bright future,  but everything changed when I found an ivy-cloaked house, tucked in a forgotten valley, hiding a man who corrupted my world forever.

I thought I was successful, until he showed me fortune and happiness could be snatched away in an instant.

I believed I was blessed, but really, I was cursed.

Cursed to become a plaything for a monster.

Cursed to become a prisoner just because I trespassed.

Now, I know nothing.

I am nothing.

I’m just his.

Fable of Happiness

Wow. Not what I was expecting AT ALL. Despite the cliffhanger (literally) I enjoyed this oddly erotic, lost in the woods story.

Not just dark but STUPID

Promising start!

This is the first book in trilogy following Gemma and Kassen.
Gemma, a sucesseful rock climber, got lost while searching for her next rock to conquier, and accidentally winds up in front of a long forgotten and hidden mansion in the middle of nothing. Kassen has lived by himself for over a decade, and when Gemma stumbles upon his property he takes her as his prisoner. Gemma is prepared to do anything to survive and escape, but Kassen is determined to keep Fable and its secrets hidden from the world.

The book started a bit slower, what with world building and setting up characters before they finally crossed paths.
I absolutely loved the plot and can’t wait to find out more about Fable and Kassen’s past.
But I have to say I struggled with characters. They both frustrated me to no end and I didn’t feel much chemistry between them.
Gemma, who is supposed to be this super responsible professional rock climber made so many stupid decisions even before she stumbled upon a mansion and Kass. And it only got worse from there!
Kass also had his annoying moments but he was also intriguing. We get a couple of flashbacks of Kassen’s past and I can’t wait to find out more! His past is dark, but it wasn’t too detailed. Still, be mindful of triggers.
Despite not really liking main characters, the story was so addictive! I decoured it in one sitting! It ends on a shocking cliffhanger and I can’t wait for the next book!
