About this ebook

New York Times Bestseller, Pepper Winters, delivers a brand new High Fantasy Romance.

“It’s taking everything I have not to touch you. Not because I want to make you mine but because every part of me screams that you already are.”

A pack of wolves hunt a girl who takes her last breath by a river’s edge.

She is found and nursed back to health by the kind-hearted Nhil people.

She has no memory.

No past.

And is given a choice that could change her forgotten life forever.

A pack of wolves adopt a man who begs for death in the grasslands.

Blood revives him. Flesh strengthens him. All while the alpha watches him as if he knows who he is.

He has no memory.

No past.

And yet…he’s drawn toward the smoke of a faraway clan.

And in that smoke, he finds a girl with the same mark on her thigh, the same empty mind, and the same forgotten language on her lips.

He’s convinced they know each other.

She’s certain they are strangers.

But the more time they spend together, the more tangled the truth becomes.

Their forgetfulness was deliberate.

To keep them apart.

To keep them lost.

To keep them from claiming their true power.

Because in that power exists a terrible choice.

A choice that could destroy the world…

…or each other.

When a Moth Loved a Bee is the first volume in the Epic Fantasy Romance Destini Chronicles.

A heavily romantic, spice-filled fantasy set in a world where life and death, shadows and stars watch over two forbidden lovers whose powers are best left forgotten.

Recommended for readers over R18 due to explicit scenes, content, and darker elements.

Author Note:

This Fantasy is 100% romance. If you want a rich world, magic, intrigue, oodles and oodles of page time with the two characters together, all brimming with longing, forbiddenness, and butterfly-winging moments, then this is the book for you.

Another masterpiece by Pepper Winters. Her stories are always exceptionally well-written with the most original & intriguing storylines & characters. But this time, she takes her ability to write the most poignant & all-consuming stories & adds a fantasy element. When I tell you I felt every emotion possible. Every single one of them. The characters were relatable, & I could easily connect with them. The story held so many unique & captivating elements, easily making this new world so magical.

WHEN A MOTH LOVED A BEE is the first instalment in Pepper Winters’ adult DESTINI CHRONICLES high fantasy series focusing on Girl aka Runa, and Stranger aka Darro. WHEN A MOTH LOVED A BEE is a slow building, detailed, complex, complicated and ‘long winded’ (close to 1000 pages) story of power and magic; life and death; light and dark, love and loss.The premise is intricate, exhaustive and intriguing-the elements and nature (including animals) play a large roll in the lives of the characters.

I don’t read fantasy but I do read anything by Pepper Winters. When a Moth loved a Bee is a gorgeously written tale ... Absolutely spellbinding. It is emotional and heartfelt with a cornucopia of characters you’ll love spending time with, in a world that has it all: angst, mystery, passion, romance and so much more. I was immersed in the story and wanted to find out more with each turn of the page.
