Excerpt #1
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.
But…he didn’t.
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.

Excerpt #2
My stomach churned with the promise.
I will make him love me.
My conviction wasn’t flimsy or half-hearted.
And then I’ll destroy him.

Excerpt #3
And, if I was honest, they’d transformed me into the same kind of creature. Someone who had evolved from a single dimension and now lived with so many avenues of personalities.
I was still the quiet, vertigo-stricken girl from London, but I was also the woman who liked being tormented, who thrived on a fight, and who thirsted for sex.
And that stupefied me.

5 Stars

Pepper Winters has given us another amazing, captivating read! First Debt is the second book in the Indebted series and cannot be read as a stand alone. I personally loved the first book but I found this one to be even better, the way the characters and plot are beginning to develop is extremely intriguing. The first book left me with a million questions and fortunately, First Debt answered some of them but of course it raised quite a few more! I will let you know that we do finally get some information about what happened between the Hawks and Weavers all those years ago and its a terrible story, still no real reason for this horrible debt inheritance but the hatred is understandable. 

I love a good dark romance but I wasn't sure I'd ever be able to really see Jethro in a romantic light however this book changed my mind. In true Pepper Winters fashion there is something major going on with him that is probably going to change everything. His terrifying icy facade is hiding something and much to his surprise, Nila is cracking his frozen heart. There are so many things about him that I'm dying to know, I can't wait to find out more! Nila is quite a character, she is so different from the first book! Her character is growing, changing, adapting and becoming stronger with each passing day. This horrifying situation is allowing her to discover who she truly is and that her previous life wasn't what she actually wanted at all. She is finding freedom in captivity while finding her first true attraction to the one man she should hate. Her unwavering determination to not only survive but to win this evil game is admirable. Also we get to know Jethro's brother Kes quite a bit and he adds quite an interesting development to the story!

I think the back and forth relationship between Jethro and Nila is fascinating, their intense attraction confuses them both and threatens the entire ritualistic nature of the debt inheritance. Jethro needs to be calm, cold and ruthless while Nila needs to be subdued and submissive yet their feelings fill them with scorching hot passion that could either ruin or save them both depending on how you look at it. The heat between these two characters practically lights the pages of this book on fire and I loved every second of it! 

This compelling, passionate read is filled with mystery, hot sex, crazy plot twists and revelations that leave you absolutely dying for the next book in the series, I can't wait to read more!

Male Characters: mysterious, confusing

Plot Twists: its a crazy ride!
Laugh Factor: none
Cry Factor: none
Steam Factor: hot, hot, hot

“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.
