First Debt (Book Two) Indebted Series
“You say I’ll never own you. If I win—you willingly give me that right. You sign not only the debt agreement, but another—one that makes me your master until your last breath is taken. You do that, and I’ll give you this.”
Nila Weaver’s family is indebted. Stolen, taken, and bound not by monsters but by an agreement written over six hundred years ago, she has no way out.
She belongs to Jethro as much as she denies it.
Jethro Hawk’s patience is running out. His inheritance gift tests, challenges, and surprises him—and not in good ways. He hasn’t leashed her but he thinks he might’ve found a way to bind her forever.
Debts are mounting. Payment waiting.
A small gasp fell from my lips as his fingers kissed the paper-thin skin. His eyes held me hostage. The golden brown was now a swirling bronze, raging with the same demanding hunger I knew reflected in mine.
“This sort of reminds me of the forest,” I whispered. “The trees around us—no one else.” My words fell like petals, waiting for Jethro to crush them beneath his glossy shoe.
Tracing one hand from my wrist, along the inside of my arm, and right to my throat, he fisted my ponytail. With intensity that stripped my soul to the very essence of who I was, he pulled my head back slowly, sensually, full of sexual power.
His eyes dropped to my mouth. “I’ll let you in on a little secret, Ms. Weaver.”
I panted, my neck straining against his hold, but I made no move to break the poignant awareness.
“You won that night, but I lied when I said it pissed me off.” His mouth dropped, his tongue licked my bottom lip with the barest of grazes.
First Debt immediately starts where Debt Inheritance leaves us, so make sure you pick up and read Debt Inheritance FIRST. The exact spot where Nila chooses to run. I have waited with baited breath for the continuation of this story and Pepper Winters does NOT disappoint. Her writing is insanely intense, from the plot to the characters, and most of the time you are left thinking, “WTF, did I just read? Did that really just happen? Yup, it did!” This book was so extremely well written, when I got to the last page, I thought to myself, surely this isn’t over already. Bravo, Pepper Winters! This book was amazing.
There are so many of our questions that get answered in First Debt, but of course, with answers comes more questions. I can’t wait! We get to see more Jethro, because First Debt is told in dual POV. We get to see what is under his icy exterior. Nila is growing stronger, and stronger, the more pressure she is put under the more she shines.
This was a fantastic book, and I can’t wait for the next one. It can’t come soon enough. If you haven’t read Debt Inheritance, go pick that up first, and then dive into this one. If you like suspenseful, dark twisty reads, then you will love Pepper winters. I promise.
