“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 18 due to explicit scenes, content, and darker elements.

The Girl + The Stranger

A young man and a young woman with no memory are rescued after wandering the lands for who knows how long.
He is taken in by a pack of wolves.
She's taken in by the friendly Nhil people.
Both don't remember anything from their previous lives. But they do have tiny little flashes of memory where they feel they're missing something. Someone.
Someone very important.
But why can't they remember?
And why is everyone and everything trying to stop them from being together?


Well. I really liked this. 🀯
I'm SO not a fantasy reader.
I don't even know what HIGH FANTASY means. 🀣 It's probably too high for me.
The most fantasy I ever read was Harry Potter. And maybe a few Vampire romances here and there.
This book was SO long. Like really long. It was all very beautifully written, but I could've lived with a few less pages. This took me so many days to read!
But it's an amazing story. It would look so incredible on the big screen.
This whole world. The people and the many adorable animals and the special effect stuff. Just beautiful.
The love story is so very ... heartbreaking. We don't know what is happening or rather what happened to get us to this point. But it all feels very sad and hopeless. And it kinda gets more hopeless with every page we read.
But we still hope for a happy end for our two darlings.
But we probably won't get that happy end yet - because this is book 1 in the Destini Chronicles... that kinda means we'll be left with a cliffy. 🀷‍♀️

I hope I can remember everything that happened until the second book arrives. Hashtag Bookalzheimers!

Anyway. I really enjoyed reading this.
I really loved lots of things about the story. Especially the animals and friendships.
I just wish that it was one shorter book with a perfect happy end.
And I also wish that the storyline with the son/heir of the Nhil people would've been different. I almost stopped reading as things happened.

But I will definitely read the second book!

With WHEN A MOTH LOVED A BEE Pepper created an amazingly beautiful fantasy world. People and Animals and so much more. A story that is so very interesting and complicated and adorable and sweet and heartbreaking and dangerous and hopeless and crazy and just... grrr. PLEASE READ IT!
