Release Blitz & Review: Lunamare by Pepper Winters

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…

"Lunamare is a coming-of-age romance that fans of The Ribbon Duet will love." That sentence alone would've made me pick this book up. Lunamare is such a heartbreaking and emotional new adult romance. I was on the edge of my seat throughout the book because I know Pepper's M.O., which is breaking your heart and fixing it later. Knowing this is a duet I knew that heartbreaking would happen in this book, and hopefully the fixing will happen the next book. The relationship between Nerida Taylor and Aslan is the heart of the story, and I found myself invested in their journey from the start. I loved how these two met and seeing them grow closer together throughout the book. Nerida found Aslan in the sea and I absolutely loved how she an her parents Jack and Anna took him under their wings. Aslan is grateful and wouldn't do anything to jeopardize his situation and the trust of Jack and Anna.

"She was my air in a world full of oceans. She was my dream in a nightmare full of death. She was my sun in a night full of fear."

Nerida really pushed Aslan's limits and went after what she wanted. I loved her courage and fearless attitude. However, I also appreciated that she took a step back when it was needed. The story is an emotional rollercoaster, and I was on the edge of my seat throughout the entire book. I just know some horrible and tragic events were going to occur. Some of them I predicted but Pepper still was able to surprise me. The story does have some darker elements, and boy was she able to shock me with a particular scene. The character development in "Lunamare" is superb, with both Nerida and Aslan undergoing significant growth individually and as a couple. The fact that Aslan is Turkish makes me love this book even more, because I am Turkish! I loved all the Turkish sentences Pepper incorporated into the story. Pepper hit it out of the park with this book, and I am dying to get my hands on the next one!

"You have my heart, Neri. You have my soul. Even apart, that means you’re not alone. Ever.”

Overall, "Lunamare" is a compelling romance novel that will leave readers eager for the second book in the duet. Pepper's ability to craft memorable characters and weave engaging plots make this book a must-read for fans of the genre.
