“There was a truth once. Truth we shared in the dark and scribed scars upon our hearts.
There was a lie once. A lie that shattered our hard-earned truth apart.”

Eleanor Grace did the unbelievable. She fell for a man who trades in women, dabbles in myth, and has the morals of a cold-hearted beast. However, love isn’t enough where past sins are concerned and only pain can fol

Mali Mor ❤️ The Romantic Blogger

By the time everything seems to finally work out between Eleanor and Sully, his older brother comes to mess things up. 💥
Sully is not a good guy, but Drake...? Damn, even the devil himself thinks "Well, he's gone too far, someone should stop this sick sonovabitch!" 😂😈
It seems that paradise is just an illusion, Sully's islands aren’t impenetrable... and now they both going to pay the price. 💣

MY REVIEW AND OTHERS: can also be found on my blog:
'FOURTH IS A LIE' is the fourth, full length, romance book in Pepper Winter's 'Goddess Isles' series. It picks up where the third book left off. Spoken in 'Dual Perspectives.' This is the continuation of Sully's and Eleanor's story.

Hand on heart this series/this book is utter perfection. The Goddess Isles series is my favourite series of 2020. Get ready to fall in love even more..

Sizzling hot captive romance series!

This series gets better and better! Even after this fourth book, I can’t wait to find out what happens next. There is action, adventure, intrigue, suspense, and all the heat you could possibly want. None of it is boring or slow. Just when you think the story will go one way, something totally out of the blue smacks you in the face and everything changes.

The Hero Sully has finally made it to that point where he figures out the difference between good and evil a

Oh my word what a spectacular story! I’m at a loss for words. My emotions and nerves are on edge. Every emotion is firing, I’m rendered speechless. I’m literally on the edge of the cliff, a whisper away as this book has painted such a vivid story. Every single detail and emotion is captured and holding me hostage.

This series is forever going to be one of my favorites from Pepper. Sully is all consuming, and truly one of her book boyfriends that will always be in my heart.

The action is off the charts, the chemistry is electric, and the ending is mouth dropping and everything. If you're still on this ride, as you should be, this one is going to blow you away.

Pepper Winters has mastered a skill that very little have been able to accomplish, keeping me invested 4 books into a series, especially when it's a

‘Fourth A Lie’ is book four in the Goddess Isles series by Pepper Winters which is a Dark Romance trope.

I thought Third A Kiss was big...but this book?! This is the colossal of books! This one mangled my heart!

The first five chapters my heart was so heavy. I said to myself, “D*mn it! Pepper Winters is brilliant!” (I stand by that wholeheartedly!)

Midway through the book my heart was pumping and pounding so hard. The ending? The ending caused so much friction from the thumping of said heart.....

This series just keeps getting more and more intense, and this book? It's the darkest yet. It's packed with tons of action and suspense.

I suffered from so much anxiety while reading this book. I couldn't put it down!

Jinx had made me human.
Eleanor had made me care.
And just like entire fucking empire was over.

For the record, this book completely redeemed Sully in my eyes! I forgive any boneheaded-ness on his part seeing just how protective and caring he was.❤️

If I survive, Jinx.

Pepper's Tale of Volatile love in Goddess Isles could very well be renamed "The Impossibility Of Us". I've rarely come across a couple so desperately in denial and so compelling and comabtive with their feelings. As pepper prepares to pour oil over water and set a match to it, the resulting explosion will knock you on your Ass!!

Oh how I wanted to delve into these pages and be a saviour because thats what this book made me feel. I was cringing with so much hatred towards Sully’s brother because what he has planned was nothing , not even Sully was prepared for what’s coming to his shores.

Stephanie (Bookfever)

In this fourth book, Sully's despicable brother Drake finally made his way to the island intending to take everything from Sully, the island, the elixir, the goddesses and even Eleanor. From how the previous book went I had pretty much anticipated that something like this would happen but I wasn't prepared for the unslaught of it all, to be honest. There was a lot of fighting, people getting hurt and the ending makes me both crave and dread the next and final book. And yet I loved it all.

As with every other book in this series, Pepper Winters has knocked me on my ass with her AMAZING ability to write and create a story. Create a whole world. Create such images that I feel like I am in the middle of the story and witnessing everything firsthand.

Fourth a Lie picks up right at the cliffhanger of Third a Kiss. Pepper wasn't lying when she said she was leaving brutal cliffhangers at the end of each book. And then the ending of this NO JOKE either!!

Fourth a Lie (GODDESS ISLES Book 4) was incredible. It was brutal, intense, and a total page-turner. I couldn't read this book fast enough and experienced page flip anxiety while trying not to skip ahead. The fourth installment in this series is action-packed. Drake and Sully go to war. Sully finds himself at war with his emotions as he realizes his heart's potential to experience love. I'm DYING to see how it all ends. The conclusion, Fifth a Fury (GODDESS ISLES Book 5), will release on June 16 ...more

Book four left me breathless. My heart is still pounding, my mind is screaming NO, and my mouth hangs open as in "what just happened "?
This series has been absolutely fantastic. After every book I think to myself "the next one won't be as good" but Pepper Winters surprises and shocks me every.single.time!
This is a series I will read over and over again!
I extremely recommend this book!

All I can say is OMG Pepper Winters has really outdone herself. Each book in this series just gets better and better. Sully and Jinx happily ever after is always out of reach for one reason or another. This couple can never get one break, the love and connection is so strong that through sight or touch it is a binding connection like no other, and Sully is willing to give it all up for his Eleanor/Jinx. He just wants her safe from the monster who torture him as a kid. The monster who has always ...more

Are you ready? I don’t think you are because WOW!! Buckle up because this one might just rip you apart! After the shocking cliffhanger in the prior book we begin right where we left off. Sully finally admitted his feelings he has about Jinx but at what cost to both of them and all that he has created? With enemies closing in can they find a way to come out on top or is this the end? Can he finally confront his brother before he loses everything? A war is be prepared to fight! “Pain m ...more

Ok, I’m trying to figure how to stop my heart from beating out of my chest from all of the emotions from this book!

I had absolutely no idea what to expect after the events that took place at the end of Third a Kiss. I knew that whatever if was it was bound to be something that did not bode well for Sully and Eleanor’s fledgling love. It would be almost impossible for Sully to experience all the loss he has his entire life and not be affected by it. However, once again Pepper freaking Winters was

After the way Third a Kiss ended, I was both excited an terrified going into Fourth a Lie. And, as it turns out, I had good reason to be. Fourth a Lie has a much more sinister vibe than previous installments with an in person introduction of a formidable villain and not only Sully and Eleanor's relationship but their very survival on the line. Fourth a Lie brings with it high octane action, many edge of your seat moments as well as a heavy dose of passion, love and desperation. Sully and Eleanor ...more

Time is a traitor stands amongst them and intruders storm their shores, Sully and Eleanor face their greatest battle! Sacrifices are made, blood shed, and death infects the island!

The fourth and penultimate book in the Goddess Isles series has left me once again desperate for more. This series continues to be up there with my favourite reads of all time and until Fifth a Fury releases my thoughts will be constantly with Sully, Eleanor and the others who remain on the Islands. I have absolutely no idea which way this story is going to go!

This book had a whole lotta crazy in it that had me on the edge of my seat, and I was grateful for every second of it. This series stes Sully to be the villain, but once he and Jinx grow closer...then what? By book 3, I was wondering what could possibly happen next. And so, this story was the perfect addition to this series. It also redeems Sully in so many ways, before and during this story. He sees so much through this.
