“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.”
Nila Weaver’s family is indebted. Being the first born daughter, her life is forfeit to the first born son of the Hawks to pay for sins of ancestors past. The dark ages might have come and gone, but debts never leave. She has no choice in the matter.
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.
There are no rules. Only payments.
A modern day Dark Erotic Romance
This is the first book in the Indebted series by Pepper Winters, a modern day dark erotic romance. This book however had very little romance. There are flickers of attraction between Nila and Jethro, but then it is quickly gone.
The Weaver family is indebted to the Hawk family for reasons that are yet known. It's the one thing that bugged me. I wanted to know what was the debt! The payment is known though. The first born daughter of every Weaver generation is to be turned over to the first born male Hawk. The is a debt that has been going on for six hundred years and the time has come for Nila to make payment.
Nila never knew the truth about why her mother disappeared, but her father, Tex, did. Tex tried to shield his children and protect them. I was torn between this. I think Nilas should have been told or Tex should have taken her far away! Now the time has come to repay the debt. She will now try to survive.
Jethro is the first born Hawk. He is glad the day is here for him collect the debt. He is dominant but he is also torn between his family and Nila. There is a want and a need his has for Nila.
This book is a roller coaster of emotions. If you have issues with non-consensual sex and assault, this is not a book for you. This is a story of captor and captive and it seems like there will not be a happy ending. There are many interactions between Nila and Jethro that are hot, but what the Hawk family does to Nila is far from erotic.
I just want to know if Nila is condemned to the fate that was set for her six hundred years ago or will Jethro and Nila break the law? This is a series I do not want to miss and neither will you.
Excerpt: Debt Inheritance: Meet Jethro & Nila
“Huge disappointment, Ms. Weaver.” His cold glare sent a snowstorm wiping away the bonfire in my belly. “I’m done playing games, so cut the bullshit. Time to begin the day.” His voice gave no room for interpretation. A cold draft shot down my back.
My brief reprieve from debts and horrible Hawks was over. I’d been shown something I desperately wanted, but denied it because I failed to please him.
“You could teach me…show me how…” I couldn’t make eye contact with him. Mortification painted my cheeks for both admitting I was clueless and asking a monster to coach me.
Jethro laughed. “You think that will save you from what’s coming? Was that your little plan? To make me fuck you in the hopes I might feel something for you?”
I stood up slowly, clicking my tongue. “Ah, ah, ah, Ms. Weaver. Don’t take that tone with me. You’re the failure. You’re the prisoner. You take what I give you. You do not assume to have any say or authority. That includes listening to everything I deem important to tell you.” Ghosting to a stop in front of her, I murmured, “Is that quite understood?”
I flexed my muscles, welcoming back the soothing chillness of control. I hadn’t liked stepping outside my confines of civility. Things got messy when silence was disrupted. Things got rushed when tempers rose and curses flowed.
And I didn’t want to rush her undoing. I wanted to savour it. Devour it.
