“My body blinded me while his lies destroyed me. Penn Everett swept me from my world and into his, and when his lies fell apart, I finally opened my eyes to the truth. The awful, terrible truth.”
Noelle Charlston had it all: her company, a love affair, power and protection.
However, she didn’t pay attention, and in one night, everything she believed in, everyone she trusted turned out to be worse than fake.
Now, she has no one to help her. No one to free her.
She’s on her own and has to make the choice.
Who to believe?
Who to fight?
Who to trust?
Penn lied to her from the beginning. He taught her that words could hurt and actions could steal, and now, it’s her turn to twist the truth. She doesn’t have a choice. She’ll fight for her heart, her livelihood, her life.
Some lies will ruin her while others will set her free.
But the truth…the truth will change everything.
Includes both Crown of Lies and Throne of Truth of the USA Today and Wall Street Journal Bestselling Romance
Crown of Lies:
Since I ran away for the night, danced in New York streets, and almost got killed in an alley by two thieves. Until he showed up and saved me.
Since I threw a drink at the man my father expected me to marry, then found myself slammed against a wall with Penn Everett's seductive voice whispering a proposal I couldn't refuse.
To fall into hate with the man who reminded me of so many things and hid so much behind his lies. He couldn't be the man who saved me three years ago...but there's something so familiar...
For our relationship to switch from no-strings to marriage. He announced it to my father―he's ecstatic. He told my friends―they're shocked. But he didn't ask me, he commanded me―and I'm livid.
For his lies to slowly steal my heart and make me believe, hope...trust.
For his truth to destroy me.
Throne of Truth:
Since my life changed for the second time and not necessarily for the better. Two years since I traded prison bars for streets and hunted a runaway who I’d met in an alley.
Since I forgot how to lie, woke to fists, and chased after the girl who’d been stolen from me.
To save her, rescue her, keep my lies intact. She looks at me full of hate. I look at her full of confession.
For our relationship to switch from mutual dislike to floundering with unknowns. I’ve hurt her. Now, she’s hurt me. I guess we’re even.
For her to listen, to see, to finally know who I am. The answer comes with hardship. The answer isn’t what she wants to hear.
For me to walk out the door.
For it all to be over.
