“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.

This series from Pepper Winters is just amazing, and I can't wait to read the whole series again.
Reading this book again just filled my body with excitement because I know what's coming next, and even though you know what happens in it, you still can't believe what you're reading.
But I love PW so much. She is my inspiration. She was the one that made me want to start writing. THANK YOU PEPPER WINTERS FOR EXISTING!! xD

Nila Weaver is definitely one of my favourite heroines. She's ju

★★★★ 1/2! First Debt, book 2 of 7. A dark & sexual tale of Jethro’s quest to collect a centuries old debt from Nila when lust gets in the way!

Pepper Winters is one of my favorite authors of the dark and twisted genre, and she didn’t disappoint when it came to First Debt. She took a seriously messed up book with a crazy and intense ‘hero’ (and I use that term very loosely) that was kick ass on it’s own, and wrote a second book I loved even more than the first. Jethro Hawk is not anyones hero. He’s a villain. The bad guy in the story. But maybe… just maybe he’s not quite as bad as I originally thought.

I'm so glad I'm one of the people that actually believed in Pepper Winters and her incredible writing skills enough not to give up on this series after reading Debt Inheritance and finding in it one of the most vile, nonredeemable, cruel, hardhearted male MCs EVER.

The only way I had a chance at surviving long enough to reap vengeance on the men who ruined my ancestors was to fight his ice with fire.
I had to burn.
I had to blaze.
I had to cinder his beliefs and control to the ground. And smear his soul with the ashes of his sins.

If you've read the first book and found yourself unsure about where this series is going, READ THIS BOOK. First Debt just goes to further prove the genius that is the evil mind of Pepper Winte

I was one of the readers who finished book 1 feeling shocked and a little angry with the (anti) hero Jethro Hawk. Though I never doubted that the author could redeem him in our eyes, there was a lot of work needed to be done before I could even forgive him, let alone like him. With this second book, the author has answered old questions, presented new ones, but most importantly, given us a reason to warm up to Jethro and both sympathize and admire Nila for her resil

Wow – what a ride! After the shock and awe of the first book, Debt Inheritance, the second book in this darkly mysterious series really gets the story flowing. In book one we were very much under starter’s orders with plenty of world building and the scene being set – now in Second Debt we’re rapidly galloping down the straight with plenty of hurdles to leap along the way.

He stepped from the sun’s glare, his teeth sparkling like diamonds. “Now…run.”

I ran.

"This wasn't about the chase. We all knew who would win. It was about defiance."

After being let down by my previous highly anticipated read, naturally I was wary about picking up another sequel by one of my favorite authors. And thank heavens Pepper Winters did not disappoint at all. After Book 1 that left many readers in shock with Jethro's downright stone-cold demeanour, this one definitely shine a whole new light on him and


“This was the ultimate test. The Debt Inheritance was more than history and payments — it was an important sequence of events that every firstborn Hawk had to complete in order to inherit his legacy.”


“First Debt” is the second installment in the “Indebted” series by Pepper Winters.

Even if I still think the premise is partially plausible, I enjoyed this book, even more than the first one. Plausible or not, it's an interesting and unique premise.

“First Debt” is not as sick disturbing
