“We’d won. We’d cut through the lies and treachery and promised an alliance that would free us both. But even as we won, we lost. We didn’t see what was coming. We didn’t know we had to plan a resurrection.”

Nila Weaver fell in love. She gifted her entire soul to a man she believed was worthy. And in the process, she des

I guess having high expectations always has the risk of being disappointed at the end...but I was still surprised by this one.

If you are following the series by now you know the ending on the last book left everyone broken and in pain. The first ten percent of this book I was a sad bubbling mess. The author takes you right back where the last book ended and the pain started all over again. I am fully invested on this series and I refused to wait until the next book so I dived in as soon as

The previous book ended with a bang. Like every book in this series it left us hanging on a thin thread and the ending was cruel. We all needed to know what happened and how things would get evolved.

Fourth Debt starts immediately after that part, where Nila is now under the hands of the Hawks, without t

“…there was nowhere to hide. No one to save me. Only time could do that. Time that neither Jasmine, Jethro, Vaughn, nor myself had.”

“Fourth Debt” is the fifth installment in Pepper Winter’s series, entitled “Indebted” and like its predecessors it picks up right where the last book ended. So far, I really enjoyed this series – the premise, the writing, the intensity, the craziness. However, like my rating says I only liked this one. In fact, this installment was my least

Well I'm not sure what to say about this book. I honestly only liked the last 10%!
The beginning started off where the last book ended. Leaving us to wonder if what happened in the last book was final. Of course we all knew it wasn't right. lol
The first 50% I found myself twiddling my thumbs. Nila without Jethro was just boring to me. I didn't like how we were told about the events that happened to Nila afterwards. I kind of felt the games were a little silly. An example of one of them u

Fourth Debt is the eagerly awaited follow up to the heart stopping cliffhanger we have to endure at the end of Third Debt. What will happened to our doomed couple Nila and Jethro in the sick and twisted game orchestrated by the Hawks family.

With Jethro and Kes's lives hanging in the balance, Nila was left to deal with the aftermath alone. She had to fight her own battle and had no one to trust. Is Jasmine and Flaw even on her side? I don't blame her for being all paranoid towards everyo

So I wrote this review 3 years ago with "review to come" and it never did.. I was cleaning up my docs today and there it was. So I figured better late than never. From rereading it now, I can tell you it's about two things, the story in this book getting repetitive and boring.

While I haven’t read that many erotica since it isn’t always my cup of tea, I have a few guilty pleasures. And this series is (was?) one of them. The whole circumstances of the story are outstretched and would never happen
This series has captivated me in a huge way! I have been glued to my Kindle hoping somehow good will conquer evil!!! I can’t say I am hopeful at the moment! Especially considering that cliffy!! Pepper Winters may be the Queen of Darkness; but she is also Queen of cliffhangers too! Each book in this series has ended with a doozy of a cliffy, that makes it impossible not to want to continue immediately! I am glad to tell you this series is completed, so you can definitely pick up the next instalme ...more

Help Pepper Winters has done it again with this amazing, spine tingling, nerve wrecking best seller! My collage says what I can't, the tone of the story was drastically different from the others. Darker, more sinister, thought provoking and gut wrenching, my heart broke and rebroke. How does one not lose themselves or break after evil has taken over? Going in with the first book you tasted innocence, purity but we are now four books after the fact, so that cherry has long since been popped!
I'm still loving this series, but this was my least favorite. Maybe that's due to the separation of Nila and Jethro during this one or maybe I just want a damn HEA already!
These poor characters can't seem to catch a break.
And maybe I'm slow... (view spoiler)

I still cannot wait for the last book. I hope one of

I can't say much about this book because I don't want to give the plot away but I was completely and totally immersed once again in the world of the Weavers and the Hawks!! This book has a little bit of a different tone to it than the previous books because there are lots of questions that are answered. This series is EPIC!! (And I would LOVE to see it made into a mini-series.) I'm in denial that there is only one more book left in this series! I don't know how Ms. Winters dreams up these plots, ...more

Torture, that's the theme of this book. I've been anxiously awaiting the release of this book to find out what happens next and I finally got to sit down and read it. Not only was Nila tortured at almost every turn, but so was I.

Cut, Daniel and Bonnie made it their mission to torture Nila every chance they got and their methods were medieval, literally. I had to look up a lot of the torture devices they used. I hurt for Nila. I was pleasantly surprised by Jaz though. I'm so h

Fourth Debt by Pepper Winters

Book#5 in the Indebted Series

After being left heartbroken from the ending of The Fourth Debt I had mixed emotions about starting the next instalment, not due to the intrigue of it but because I was not sure if I was ready to experience all the heart wrenching emotions all over again.

This book sees the series take a slight turn in direction as answers to long lying questions come to surface and puzzle pieces are beginning to create a clearer picture.

Great Series, OK Serial

Pepper Winters is one of my favorite authors, and even though I've loved this series, I have to say it is getting a little tedious. It is a good thing that there's only one more book, because I'm not sure I'd make it through any more than that. You really can get too much of a good thing, in some instances.

With Jethro and Kes "dead" at the end of the last book, 'Fourth Debt' begins with the remaining Hawk siblings vying for possession of Nila. Jas seems to be out for reven

So I started "Fourth Debt" this morning and it's now 4pm and I'm done with it and holy mother heaven, Pepper Winters ... seriously????

EPIC. SIMPLY EPIC. I had very high expectations for this book and I was NOT disappointed. After the end of the Third Debt I was shocked, angry and devastated. This book gave me a lot of answers, made me cry, made me sigh and most of all made me FEEL.
The author does a great job capturing Nila's loss and grief. The way she has presented her heroine's emotions is simply outstanding! I devoured the book in a few hours and I am still think

His desperation to have Nyla as his is the center of this book.

I becomes more symphatic to Jethro is the previois book. And the Fourth Debt seals my love for him. The story and the plot becomes thicken. With all of Miss Winter talent for writing such dramatic story, I want to see more decelopment from the antagonist characters. Daniel, Brian and heck even the far their character is just far

I have been following this series right from the beginning, I have loved it since the beginning. Yes, the waiting has been hard but it’s just ‘one of those series’ you know.

So in this one we see the fourth debt taking place. I got so mad in places because it was difficult to believe how people would act so backwards living in the 21st century. But I guess that is what money and power does to people. It was really emotional seeing those things happen to Nila and honestly I’m not a violent person

I've been hooked on this series since the beginning. Out of all the books in this series, this one was my least favorite. It did drag a bit and I definitely felt like it was a "filler" book and a prelude to the dramatic series conclusion. There was a lot of inner dialogue and setting up for the final book.

Even though this wasn't my fave, Pepper still wrote a beautiful story and I cannot wait for the Final Debt.
I'm going crazy over here!!

Holy shit! HOLY SHIT! That's all I can think right now.
