How Can She Trust Any Man Again?
Costin can’t remember a time in his life when he ever had a family, ever felt wanted, let alone loved. Until Eliana. The night he found her shivering…alone…in a basement was the first time he ever saw true light. He knew from that first day, when they grew up, she would be his.

Joshua is used to being used by his power hungry father, his needs coming last. Joshua does what he has to in order to survive. Until the moment he lays his eyes on Eliana. At last he finds something bright and good…something worth fighting for. He just had to wait until they were older. But he was good at waiting.

Eliana was loved and cherished by a father who promised her the moon. He protected his daughter and family, swearing to always be there. Until the night he never returned. Left with a heartless mother, she cared beyond belief and prays that her young heroes can help her.

Two men are determined to be the one to get through to a breathtaking woman who needs love as much as she needs to give love, to fight for their destiny. But when the darkness of the past reaches forward to destroy everything, can these two put aside their pride to save the woman who means everything to them?

Author's Note - Shattered Lies is a dark romance duet that contains triggers and ends in a cliffhanger. However the final book in this duet will release on 15th October, 2019.

A*M*A*Z*I*N*G READ! Bring on Book 2 please!!!!
I cannot believe this is a debut book, Winter Paige did an awesome job of pulling me in right from the very beginning and never let me go, I devoured this book in one afternoon!

We start off when Eliana was eight years old and discovered in the basement of a house waiting for her mother just like she was told to do, only it wasn't her mother that came for her it was Costin (age 9) who she dubs as her "knight" so he can help her slay the bad men. The sassyness of this little girl only gets better as we watch her grow into an amazing woman.

This story had me laughing, crying, doubling over in laughter, and sobbing like a baby that had a pacifier taken away from her....I mean it I felt every emotion in such magnitude it was simply amazing. I am still in awe that this is a debut book by a debut author.

This book journeys through 9 years and we celebrate each birthday with Eliana, some were simply sweet and one in particular had me wanting to hurl my kindle across the room. Like I said people, all the emotions were felt!

I cannot urge you enough to read this book if you are a fan of dark reads. This is book one which does end on a cliffhanger but book two will be out very, very soon!

Happy Reading!!!


A sultry beat kicks up, and Jonah’s voice seduces every woman in the place with his declarations of love, begging for forgiveness, and longings for one last chance to make things right. I feel Costin move into me before we even connect. Strong arms coil tightly around my middle, and his breath is hot on my neck. He thrusts and grinds into me, his very presence overpowering everything else. I lose myself to the song, sweating and swaying to the beat, pretending that Costin is once again my knight and that the words pouring from Jonah are promises made by the man at my back instead. I love Joshua, but my soul aches for the bond I once shared with Costin. I miss our friendship. I miss him. I miss us.

Look what early readers are saying about Shattered Lies!
