“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.

So where do I begin with this book? First off, props to Ms. Winters for NEVER giving a reader what they expect, but always what they need. Secondly, I FRIGGING LOVE THIS BOOK. There are just no words. I had to go back and read what I wrote about book 1, Debt Inheritance. And sure enough a couple of my premonitions came true. Not that I nailed it right on the head, because no one can every do that with this author. However, the turnabouts came to head in this book. 

First Debt picks up right where Debt Inheritance last left us. Nila is running for her freedom and her life, quite literally. Jethro is running to steal both of those things from her. As strong-willed as these two individuals are, there is no escaping their demons. In this book Nila will learn more about the debts to be repaid. In the midst of her history lessons, she also fights her attraction to her captor, Jethro. Once again, this man has no redeeming qualities. Yet, be that as it may, I'm drawn to him as deeply as Nila is. She may cower, and eclipse that drugging feeling he evokes in her with her lies of trying to escape, but it's useless. She may want free, but I have a feeling her soul is tied to Jethro's for eternity. He could let her go and I'm not sure she would get very far. That ache would turn up, and shes walk willingly back into his sadistic arms. Whereas, the same can be said for him. He may feel tortured by the depth of her emotions for him, and his urge to claim her as his own, but he keeps coming back. He'd like you to believe it's out of duty and obligation, but deep down she's his addiction. 

You've never truly understood a love/hate relationship until you've read the tale of Jethro and Nila. The only problem is, will they break free of the ties that bind before their time has run out? Now, you're thinking, but I thought he was her captor? What is suffocating and holding him captive? The life he's been bred into. He wasn't meant for it. Jethro is a horse of a different color. He was born with a haunted soul, but he was always meant to be saved, I think. And that savior is Nila. I saw glimpses of it when they were together in the last third of the book. Just passing moments of their ability to be the couple I want them to be. Not whole, or fixed. Just them. Without the weight of the debts, or family obligations. 

I cannot begin to tell you how enamored I am with this series. I'm just dying to find out what happens to my favorite twisted couple. They've breached the boundaries of emotions and I'm sure things are just bound to get a hell of a lot messier in Second Debt. Once again, Pepper Winters, you've captured my heart in the minds of your characters and I'll be waiting oh so patiently for another glimpse into their world. I highly recommend this series to anyone who wants to experience that special thrill while reading. 

Happy Reading!

“I own you. I have the piece of paper to prove it. It’s undeniable and unbreakable. You belong to me until you’ve paid off your debts.”

She is no longer free.

Jethro Hawk receives Nila as an inheritance present on his twenty-ninth birthday. Her life is his until she’s paid off a debt that’s centuries old. He can do what he likes with her—nothing is out of bounds—she has to obey.
