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.

I'm a huge fan of Pepper Winters.
Her dark romances with very flawed
and broken heroes are my favorites.
I was very excited to read
Crown Of Lies because of its
very intriguing synopsis and
of course the dark and
mysterious Penn Everett.
I have to be honest and say,
that I wasn't feeling the first
half of story and the pace was too slow.
I felt that nothing extraordinary happened and Elle was just locked away in her tower where she worked after taking
over from her father.
However, when I reached the 50%
mark the pace and story picked up.
When Elle met the mysterious
Penn she felt alive and so did I.
His presence was so powerful and dominating, that I couldn't help
being drawn to him as Elle was.
Elle and Penn's chemistry and
interactions were so
intense and palpable.
I really enjoyed Elle's growth
as a strong and sexual
woman who took charge when needed.
There's still so many unanswered questions regarding Penn and I was doubting his true identity and intentions as Elle was.
The ending was suspenseful and dramatic.
I was on the edge of my seat and Pepper Winters nailed the ending and kept me intrigued until the end.
Her mixture of romance,
dark erotica and suspense was
written and captured flawlessly.
I can't wait to read the sequel
Throne of Truth.
I'm far from finished with Elle and Penn.
