4.5 Stars

It’s the start of something huge.


From New York Times Bestseller, Pepper Winters, comes a new Dark Romance full of decadent angst, monstrous heroes, and pages chock-full of lust.


A house hidden in the middle of nowhere.

A man who’s lived alone for a decade.

A woman who trespasses on his solitude.

A love full of hate as well as hunger.


The thing about my life is...I was never in control of it.

I just I thought I was.

I thought I had everything figured outa good career, fun hobbies, a bright future, but everything changed when I found an ivy-cloaked house, tucked in a forgotten valley, hiding the man who would corrupt my world forever.

I thought I was successful, until he showed me fortune and happiness could be snatched away in an instant.

I believed I was blessed, but really, I was cursed.

Cursed to become a plaything for a monster.

Cursed to become a prisoner just because I trespassed.

Now, I know nothing.

I am nothing.

I’m just his.

Gemma + Kassen.

Kassen's prologue scares us a tiny little bit. LOL.
Then Gemma starts to tell us about herself in chapter one. She's 26 years old, lives in a pretty little lavender-painted house in Michigan and she makes her money being a pretty famous professional climber. The more dangerous or off the beaten path - the more she loves the climb.
That's why she's on her way to Kentucky now - there's a boulder to be climbed - adventures to be had.
But by the very scary or rather mysterious prophecy-ish last lines in the first chapter - we know that she's not getting the adventure she's expecting.
Nope. She'll get Kassen.
And what that will mean for her and for the reader?
We have no idea. Yet. LOL!

READ THE BOOK TO FIND OUT ... or not yet, since this first love-story in the Fable Series will be a trilogy! But still - READ IT! 🀣😑


I had no idea what to expect when I started reading. Even with the slightly scary blurb.
And what did I get? A beautifully written but also very crazy start of an amazing love story. A book that makes me wish I had waited to read it until all three books were out! Grrr.
But here I am - having to wait a little while for the second one.
It won't be too bad next book will be out very soon!

I have to admit that prisoner/hostage/slave kind of stories are not my thing. It's all a bit too creepy and rapey for my tastes. But I still loved this.
Poor Kassen. We have no idea what happened to him. Why he lives in this huge mansion. Something horrible must've happened at that place a decade ago.
And Gemma. Happy fun-loving sporty spice. The poor girl.
She just wanted to climb a boulder and now she's the prisoner of this mysterious man.
It's all very crazy and exciting but also very fascinating and erotic and we hope all through the beginning of the story, that we'll get the amazing love story we're hoping for. But it probably won't be happening anytime soon! Book one is still very prisonery - but we do see some sparks and feelings.

I really can't wait to see where Pepper will go with this story.
And also - the other many books in this series! So many books - so many broken people to find their happy end!

FABLE OF HAPPINESS #1 was a great start into this new Fable Universe! A beautiful and very dark 'soon-to-be-love-story'. READ IT!
