LUNAMARE & COR AMARE
First, I have a confession.
I’ve done an absolute terrible job of marketing this duet. I think I’ve confused a lot of people with my genres, alternate covers, and the blurb. Yep, I’ve made lots of mistakes. Goes to show you can be published for over a decade and still eff up.
So…allow me to clarify.
This is a CONTEMPORARY, FORBIDDEN, FORCED PROXIMITY ROMANCE.
That’s it in a nutshell.
The alternate cover that makes it look like a fantasy was misleading. (It’s 100% contemporary, set in modern day Australia)
The blurb about him meeting her when they’re young has nothing to do with the story apart from they grow up together and only start falling into lust when he’s twenty.
The genres I was using ‘Dark Sparks’ was my own made up explanation that this is a modern romance but has darker themes so check content warnings before diving in.
I’ve changed the blurb. (I would take down the black alternate covers but I know there are a fair few people who have bought them and I would hate to ruin the duet collection so they will stay) BUT they’ll only be there on the sly and I won’t be marketing them so as not to confuse people.
I’m truly ever so proud and in love with this duet. I personally think it’s one of the best I’ve ever written…so, if I’ve clarified a few things that might have been putting you off, give it a go in Kindle Unlimited.
Here is the new blurb for LUNAMARE:
I met her when I was sixteen.
She saved my life, all while destroying it.
Without her, I would’ve died that day.
Her family took me in. They hid me. Fed me. And did all they could to keep me safe.
Her father’s one and only rule was “Don’t ever touch my daughter.”
I managed to obey for four years.
But then, one night…everything changed, and I broke my promise.
I’m in love with her, and she’s in love with me, but I have secrets I haven’t told her.
Secrets about why I ran away from home, why I have to remain hidden, and why I’ll die if I ever get sent back there.
Being with her isn’t just a risk to my heart but to my very existence.
I’m not allowed to love her.
I’m not allowed to keep her.
But I can’t stop.
I can’t stop…
And then…it’s too late.

COR AMARE COVER REVEAL!!!!
Like I said, I’m MADLY IN LOVE WITH DUET. It takes a lot for me to say that but it’s 100% true. These two characters are pure magic to me and I’m obsessed with them. I’m also obsessed with this cover! Cleo Studios knocked it out of the park!
It will be going into KU on the 25th July, so…if you read on Apple, Nook, Kobo, GooglePlay please PREORDER below and you’ll get the book two days earlier on the 23rd July! Once it’s live on those platforms, it will have to be taken down for exclusivity reasons.
Audio is in production right now and I hope to have it releasing with ebook, paperback, and hardback!
I made the worst mistake of my life when I was twenty-two.
I let love and fear destroy everything I ever wanted, and now I have a choice to make.
Run and hide or stay and face the consequences.
I’d always known I wasn’t allowed to love her.
I’d always accepted that I wasn’t allowed to keep her.
But that didn’t stop me.
I broke every rule and choked on every secret to have her.
The only problem is, those secrets aren’t just hunting me anymore, they’ve found me.
I can’t run.
I can’t hide.
For a moment, I had it all. I had all my dreams and the girl I would kill for.
But now, I have to pay the price.
I have to pay…
And I won’t survive.
A story that spans a lifetime. This book deals with heavy subjects and is advised you check the Content Warnings on the Author’s website.
THE RIBBON DUET
To celebrate LUNAMARE’s release, I decided to put The Boy and His Ribbon, The Girl and Her Ren, and The Son and His Hope into Kindle Unlimited for a strictly limited time. If you loved The Ribbon Duet, then you’ll LOVE Lunamare. It has all that delicious angst, longing, and forbiddenness that Ren and Della had. AND…if you were afraid of The Ribbon Duet and it’s putting you off trying LUNAMARE…don’t. You are safe to read this duet. You have my guarantee.
Not only did I put The Ribbon Duet into KU but I had new covers designed. I’m seriously in love with them and they are available in hardback & paperback too!
THE JEWELRY BOX SERIES
Just because I’m in the middle of promoting LUNAMARE and COR AMARE comes out in a few weeks (already written, edited, and uploaded ready to go) doesn’t mean I’m not already writing my next obsession.
I’ve taken a couple of years off from Dark Romance and it’s been whispering in my ears very loudly lately. I was going to write Q’s half-brother, Henri Mercer, back in January but Neri and Aslan from LUNAMARE hijacked my mind and fingers. I adored being in their world. I love their story as much as I do Ren and Della’s but…I can’t deny I’m ready to get my hands dark again.
And when I say dark. I do mean dark. This series comes with a BOAT load of trigger warnings. If you thought Q was bad…his half-brother is worse. You don’t have to read The Monsters in the Dark trilogy before reading The Jewelry Box. They are completely different storylines and not connected in anyway BUT if you do wish to…I’ve also put Tears of Tess, Quintessentially Q, Twisted Together, and Je Suis a Toi into Kindle Unlimited for a strictly limited time to celebrate THE JEWELRY BOX!
For now, here is the blurb for RUBY TEARS (Book One) Each book will release approx one month apart and will be coming late summer 2023. Preorders are available!
Ruby Tears (Book One)
Emerald Bruises (Book Two)
Sapphire Scars (Book Three)
Diamond Kisses (Book Four)
“Ten thousand dollars.
That pitiful sum changed my entire life.
It bought my entire life.
A measly ten thousand dollars, given to my boyfriend by a monster to fuck me.
He took it.
The monster took me.
And I never saw freedom again.”
I’m the bastard son of a monster.
My other half-blooded siblings have their own demons…but me?
I truly have the devil inside.
I try to be good.
To do my best to ignore the deep, dark, despicable urges.
But every day it gets harder.
I thought family could help.
I reached out to my infamous half-brother, Q, begging for his secrets to stay tamed.
Instead, he gave me an ultimatum to prove I’m not like our father.
Infiltrate The Jewelry Box: a trafficking ring of poor unfortunate souls, kill the Master Jeweler, free the Jewels, and don’t lose my rotten soul while trying.
Only problem is…my initiation into this exclusive club is earning a Jewel all of my own.
She sparkles like diamonds, bleeds like rubies, and bruises as deep as emeralds.
She’s mine to break.
I can’t refuse.
If I want to prove to my half-brother that I’m not like our sire, I have to sink into urges I’ve always fought, plunge into madness, and lose myself so deeply into sin that the only one who will be breaking is me.
A spin-off from the New York Times Bestselling series Monsters in the Dark.
The Jewelry Box follows Henri Mercer (Q’s half-brother) and you don’t have to read Monsters in the Dark to enjoy. The storylines are completely separate.
Triggers on every warning possible.
This is dark, explicit, and will push every possible boundary that exists.
And to all those dark souls out there…welcome to The Jewelry Box

THE GODDESS ISLES
After a year in Kindle Unlimited, The Goddess Isles is finally WIDE again. If you’ve been waiting to read this Dark Romance on Apple, Kobo, Nook, and GooglePlay, now you can! Once a Myth (Book One) is free to start!
5 x USA TODAY BESTSELLING DARK ROMANCE SERIES!
From New York Times bestseller, Pepper Winters, comes a new Dark Romance Series, Goddess Isles.
For those who loved Monsters in the Dark, Indebted, and Dollar Series, you’ll LOVE this one!
“There was a boy once. A boy who wasn’t strong enough to save me when I was taken.”
There was a girl once. A girl called Tess Snow who sat with me in the dark, waiting to be sold.
There was an owner once. An owner who bought me, entrapped me, and made me his unwilling goddess.”
Eleanor Grace is a naïve dreamer. Trusting and young, she believes her travel-loving boyfriend can save her when her freedom is snatched and sold. Squirrelled away to an island at dawn, delivered to a man even darkness won’t touch, she’s bound by a contract.
Sullivan Sinclair is the giver of fantasies. Any wish, any desire—he is the master at quenching any appetite. His private paradise and perfectly trained goddesses are there for one purpose: to ensure every guest is extremely well satisfied.
He bought her.
He trapped her.
She belongs to him.
UPDATE ON MY OTHER TITLES
I’ve always said that I’m a writer who is unfortunately at the mercy of a muse. If characters spring to mind so vividly, so sharply, I have no choice but to write them.
Once Henri and Ivy (Ruby Tears) are out of my head and onto paper, I hope to return to Destini Chronicles and/or possibly Fables. I’m ever so grateful for your patience while I follow where my creativity is taking me and rest assured, I haven’t forgotten them!
For now, When a Moth Loved a Bee will be going WIDE again on the 11th August and Fable of Happiness is a complete trilogy and free to start. Fable of Monsters follows his brother, Jareth, but is a completely different storyline.
Phew, I think that might be it.
I know I’m probably forgetting something but….I’m SO EXCITED.
I’m obsessed with Lunamare and Cor Amare and I’m already 20,000 words into Ruby Tears. My poor keyboard can’t keep up with me this year and I’m LOVING being so engrossed with my dark and twisted imagination 🙂
