Lunamare by Pepper Winters is now live!

“Is it true…that you pulled a lion from the ocean and fell in love with him?”


The sixteen-year-old boy named after a lion.

A boy with his entire life ahead of him.

A boy running from a terrible secret.

All it takes is one awful night to change everything.

One secret, one smuggler, one boat, one storm.

And he wakes in an entirely different existence.

Staring into the ocean-blue eyes of his twelve-year-old rescuer.


The twelve-year-old girl named after a sea nymph.

A girl with lofty dreams and absolute faith that she’ll achieve them.

All it takes is a bright, sunny morning to change everything.

One boy clinging to wreckage, one sea cradling him close, one chance at keeping him safe.

He’s illegal and unwanted.

She’s stubborn and so sure.

He’s lost absolutely everything.

And she’s found the only thing she ever wanted.

They begin as rescued and rescuer.

Slowly growing from twelve and sixteen.

He’s not allowed to touch her.

She’s convinced he is the one.

But as each day dawns on his illegal existence, Aslans’s secrets creep ever closer, the death he ran from hunts ever faster, and the darkness that he can’t get free of finally finds him.

And it costs him…


A true coming-of-age story that spans a lifetime. This book deals with heavy subjects and it is advised you check the Content Warnings on the Author’s website.

Lunamare is a tangled romance that fans of The Ribbon Duet will love. Combining the beautiful drama of Nicholas Sparks with the brutality of dark romance, Pepper Winters has created a tale of soulmates, secrets, cruelty, and heart-wrenching love.

Sandra's Review

5 out of 5 stars

Lunamare is the first book in the Luna Duet by the ever-talented, Pepper Winters. If you follow my reviews then you know I don’t read the blurb until after I finish the book. I love going in totally blind especially when it’s a story like this one. Epic. Poetic. Forbidden love. Twists and turns. And when Pepper states fans of The Ribbon Duet will love this story, she was right about this fan. I absolutely loved that duet and loving this one! I don’t want to spoil anything so I don’t want to get too much into the story. 
The moment Neri saved Aslan from the sea, she knew he belonged to her. She was only twelve but all of her instincts told her that he was her everything. At sixteen, Aslan was saved by a girl. One he vows to protect. Even from herself. Year after year, he protected her. From the sea. From herself. From him. Her love only got stronger and stronger as each year past. Year after year, his secrets were getting closer to the surface. One day changed his life, one night could ruin it…
This story is only the first part of their story, and I can’t wait for the rest! Thank god Pepper isn’t making us wait long. I am obsessed!! This story spans for a lifetime and I am here for it. The forbidden love. The age-gap. The darkness. The family. The secrets. It’s everything.
