“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.

Including her.

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.

Well, I still need answers!!!! Ugh!!!!
Thrilling and mysterious, this book has left me with a major hangover!!!! I don’t even know what to read now!
It is quite obvious that Pepper Winters is my favorite author. I adore everything about her writing; her characters, the refreshing plots and of course the raw emotions you always find in her novels.
This book is quite different from her usual dark romance. This is a grey romance filled with suspense and lies, lots of lies.
Noelle lives the perfect life, trapped in a gilded cage, the only child of a powerful business man. All she knows is Belle Elle, the family business that she runs from a young age with her father, her only family.
What happens when one night of recklessness has the power to spiral her life out of control? What happens when one night of freedom grands her love only to snatch it back?
One faceless, nameless man.
One night.
A love cloaked in shadow.
A woman who won’t forget.
The HE comes into her life. The prince of lies. The puppet master. The man who ignites her soul but threatens to erase her only love with his wicked deception and charm.
Penn Everett. The mystery that Elle must solve.
The book had everything I love when it comes to romance. Passion, spice, mystery and characters that stay with you.
Elle was a great heroine, I could see and feel her entrapment, her desire to live free, away from her sheltered little life. She wanted to be normal but that nearly cost her her life. In fact, that one single decision to step out of her comfort zone, made her see the world through different eyes. It brought clarity but also heartache.
Penn was, and still is, a mystery. You never know what he wants and who he is. You never know what he’s thinking and what his next move is. Their chemistry is explosive but it also brings a sense of dread because you fear the consequences of their complex connection. The entire book is covered in secrets and lies. I cannot wait to uncover the truth that hopefully comes in the second book!
Excellent storytelling, vivid characters and a plot that will leave you gasping for more.
Is it February yet?
5 Stars for the Queen of Dark AND Suspense!
