Fifth Book in the New York Times Bestselling Series.
“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 destroyed herself. Three debts paid, the fourth only days away. The Debt Inheritance has almost claimed another victim.
Jethro Hawk fell in love. He let down his walls to a woman he believed was his cure. For a moment, he was free. But then he paid the ultimate price.
There is no more love. Only war. Hope is dead. Now, there is only death all around them.

Cut shook his head, looking at his mother. “They never fucking learn.”
Bonnie laughed. “Neither did you, dear. Not for a long time.”
He wrapped an arm around her brittle shoulders. “I can’t imagine ever being so terrible.”
My fingernails dug into my palm as I witnessed a seemingly normal bond. How could evil have so many layers? How could it be so obvious one moment, then hidden by family ties and hierarchy the next?
Bonnie tapped her cane against Cut’s foot. “You’re not forgetting what you did, are you? Because I have news for you—you were worse. A lot worse.” Moving forward, she dislodged his hold. “But I straightened out the mess you made. I put things right. I have every faith you will, too.”
Cut nodded. “Damn right, I will.” His eyes strained but apart from a few cracks in his smooth veneer, I would never have guessed he’d pulled the trigger on two of his children.
All because of me.
Inching closer to Jasmine, I whispered so only she would hear. “He tried to shoot you, but Jethro saved you. Do you have no shame?”
Her eyes zeroed in on mine. Thoughts and emotions flickered over her face but she didn’t reply.
Her betrayal hurt. Jethro and Kes had loved her. They’d died for her. Who could claim to love them in return yet continue to be in the same house as the man who’d shot them?
My stomach twisted. “You make me sick.”
Her hands tightened around the rims of her wheels. Shutters slammed over her eyes, but still no response.
Tears stung but I had nothing else to say. Only one promise that she might as well hear, so she’d know who truly loved her brother. “I’ll kill you for this. Just like I’ll kill them.”
“The old Nila died the day she entered Hawksridge. But this new Nila was a fading photograph, vanishing piece by piece while her lover bled out on the priceless carpet.”
I don’t know how Pepper comes up with the torturous ways to psychologically warp her readers but I hope she never stops. Fourth Debt delves deeper into exactly what the Weavers endured through the centuries, and I can’t get enough. I want more details, I want specifics…and the actual Fourth Debt? I need to know what it is!
Nila continues to fight, being turned over to the remaining Hawk siblings; Jasmine and Daniel. When the time comes, she doesn’t know which is worse…the one with the sharp tongue, nerves of steel and a promise of pain, or the one with a sick, twisted gleam in his eye for nothing but lustful torture delivered at his first opportunity.
“Their reign was over. It was time for a new ruler. One who stood for justice rather than debts. One who would avenge those she’d lost. They’ve underestimated me. And they would die because of it.”
I cannot wait to see how it all ends in Final Debt…I have so many questions still unanswered and so many new ones now. The end can’t come soon enough, and yet, the blessed torture of the unknown keeps my mind whirling so that it never ends.
