Blog Tour -- Indebted #4: Third Debt ~V~

“She healed me. She broke me. I set her free. But we are in this together. We will end this together. The rules of this ancient game can’t be broken.”

Nila Weaver no longer recognises herself. She’s left her lover, her courage, and her promise. Two debts down. Too many to go.

Jethro Hawk no longer recognises himself. He’s embraced what he always ran from, and now faces punishment far greater than he feared.

It’s almost time. It’s demanding to be paid.

The Third Debt will be the ultimate test...

More Jethro & Nila?  Yes Please!

HOW HAD THIS happened?
Where did it all go so wrong?
Jethro was supposed to love me. I was supposed to love him.
Yet he’d given me over to his family. He’d bound the ropes, blindfolded my eyes, and gifted me to his kin.
“Know what time it is, Nila Weaver?” Daniel breathed in my ear.
I jerked away. The restraints around my body meant I couldn’t run, couldn’t fight; I couldn’t even see.
Oh, God.
Please don’t let them do this.
I wanted to scream for Jethro to save me. I wanted him to put an end to this and claim me once and for all. Didn’t our connection mean anything?
You know it’s all different now.
Ever since I’d returned to Hawksridge Hall, things had been different—horribly, horribly different.
The fire crackled in the billiards room where the Hawk men had been playing poker. The air was hot and muggy and laced with cognac fumes.
Tonight, I’d had plans to end whatever changed between Jethro and me forever.
But now…those plans had changed.
Kestrel ran his fingers over my collar. “Relax, little Weaver. It will all be over soon.”
Cut chuckled. “Yes, soon you can go to sleep and pretend none of this happened.”
My ears strained for one other voice. The voice of the man who controlled my heart even though he’d thrown it back in my face.
But only silence greeted me.
Daniel snickered, licking my cheek. “Time to pay, Weaver.”
Someone clapped and in a voice full of darkness and doom said, “It’s time for the Third Debt.”


"I'd done my utmost to be the perfect son, but I'd been fighting and unwinnable battle. No matter how much I wished I could be like them--I wasn't. And it was pointless to keep fighting."

The war waging between heart and mind, conscience and duty, and life and death had me on the edge of my seat. I turned pages almost faster than I could read them, wanting to know both Jethro's and Nila's choices as well as the consequences of those choices. I needed to know that all was not lost, that these debts would continue to be paid...morbid, right? 

I want to know about the debts. I want to witness the pain each person goes through, I want to feel everything they feel.  And that is EXACTLY what Pepper Winters has given me. What she continues to give me...

"This was it, then. On the cusp of winning, I'd lost everything. So be it. I followed."

Jethro and Nila continue to struggle against the obligations of their families, their sickness, their undeniable chemistry.  Only this time, Jethro isn't fighting fair...or should I say, Cut. The best laid plans are thwarted when realization dawns on the Hawks and while Nila and Jethro have found a way to make it through the next debt...the price they pay just may be worse.

"Passion is incredibly dangerous if it's not respected."

I cannot begin to express my love for this book, this series, this author!  Once again I am left hanging, waiting for the next book to come out so I may learn the fate of Jethro and Nila. Just like every book before, my eyes were blurry with tears, my mouth agape, and my heart plummeted into my stomach when I read the last page. When I realized what was happening, I furiously flipped pages hoping for another taste of what I have come to see as an addiction. I was hoping that Pepper gave me something...ANYTHING to hold me over, some sort of reassurance that there was more to the story...but just like every book before, there was nothing. 

Nothing at all to give any clue where this story was headed and the sweet agony of waiting the next installment will be a burden I have to bear...because this story is absolutely worth it. So in the mean time...

"Nothing is ever black and white, Nila. You should know that by now. It's all how you survive the grey."

Three words:  Bring. It. On.
