“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.
I’m going to start with saying that Pepper Winters is one amazing author. And if you haven’t read her books yet, then you’re missing out on some outstanding stories. Her books never, and I mean NEVER disappoint. She always manages to surprise me with the way they go and First Debt was not an exception.
The first book, Debt Inheritance, ended in a pretty frustrating cliffhanger with Jethro telling Nila to run. I was much going insane with wondering where and how the story would continue. And oh, I loved how it did. The story starts pretty much where things ended so I could get right into it. The whole book gave me a whirlwind of emotions. I hated Jethro him in one moment but loved him in the next. I root for him and Nila, though and I love how they fight for control over each other so hard. It’s really a power struggle between them. You just never know who wins. Meanwhile they fight their growing feelings for each other until they reach their breaking point.
Also, the first debt is finally happening and it was horrible and yet everyone says it’s the easiest of them all. If that one was easy, then I wonder what the next debts are going to be. I can only fear for Nila, knowing this. The end was pretty intense because we finally find out who Kite is. One the one hand I wasn’t too surprised by this revelation but on the other hand I was betting on someone else. I’m not sure how this will affect the story but I’m so very curious to see what will happen next!
I just know there’s a whole lot more to be revealed. Jethro is still surrounded by a lot of mystery and I’m looking forward to finding out more about him, his family and everything in between.
Overall, Pepper Winters dazzled me once again with her incredible writing. First Debt, was a fantastic sequel to Debt Inheritance where everything got kicked up a notch more. I was surprised by some turn of events that took place and how I was still so completely fascinated by the whole story, characters and not to mention the fact that I literally couldn’t stop reading until I had finished it — It was that good!
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.
Pepper Winters wears many roles. Some of them include writer, reader, sometimes wife. She loves dark, taboo stories that twist with your head. The more tortured the hero, the better, and she constantly thinks up ways to break and fix her characters. Oh, and sex… her books have sex.
