Wow, Just wow!
Finishing this book left me frustrated and excited.
Frustrated that this is book one and excitement for what's to come.
Pepper Winters writes compelling and gripping reads and the crown of lies is told in Pepper Winters unique, enticing and enthralling style.
From the moment I took the plunge into Crown of lies I was drowning in this fascinating plot and didn't want to come up for air.
Elle: He stupefied me, He bewitched me.
Elle was Queen of an empire before she reached the age of 21 with her fathers business to rule, a childhood spent with her father and schooled to one day take over his empire. No friends,no parties, Elle was no ordinary child or had the chance to be a normal teenager.
On the night of Elle's19th birthday she wanted to explore the city of New York un-chaperoned, she wanted to do something she had never been allowed to do, her days and nights were spent at her store office or apartment so for one night she wanted to experience freedom.
That night changed events and answers are very much in the air with so many questions still unanswered. Who was the nameless man that night who saved her and years later who is the mysterious man Penn who stormed into Elle's life and claimed her.
Elle's father was determined to see his daughter find love with failed matchmaking attempts in his wake, with good intentions, not wanting Elle spending her life in the office, so when he meets Mr Everett seeing a match he agrees for his daughter to date a stranger. Only Elle wasn't that convinced. She's stubborn,feisty and all business and Mr Everett or Penn definitely rubbed her the wrong way with his cockiness,arrogance and innuendos.
"You don't even know me"
"I don't have to know you, I feel you"
"I feel you like this" he squeezed my breast softly "And I feel you like this" he rocked erotically.
"But I feel you most of all with this" his touch climbed from my breast to my heart, pressing down over the rapidly beating muscle.
I'm so excited to see were the plot goes as Elle hopefully will get her answers about so many things.
From the first chapter I could feel the build of excitement with the mystery and uknown this plot holds and I'm looking forward to part 2.

From New York Times Bestseller, Pepper Winters, comes a delicious sinful hero.
“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.
