“This incomparable duet is Pepper Winters’ DEFINING MASTERPIECE – atrue romantic masterpiece of SOULMATE love. Lunamare is in a realm of its own — like no other love story you will ever read.” – Goodreads


I met her when I was sixteen.
She saved my life, all while simultaneously 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.

A true coming-of-age 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 stunning conclusion to the forbidden romance, The Luna Duet, by New York Times Bestseller, Pepper Winters…


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 dark, heavy subjects and it is advised you check the Content Warnings on the Author’s website.
