Third Debt by Pepper Winters Blog Tour

“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...

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.”

Reviews by the Wicked Reads Review Team

I normally try to write a little bit about the book in my reviews but for this book I can’t. I don’t want to ruin anything for anyone. You must read all the previous books before reading this one or you will be lost. Heck, I read them all and at times I am lost because my mind is going one way and the characters’ minds are going another. To remain spoiler free all I will tell you is it is another great book, I cried, I was sick to my stomach, and it was over too soon and I wanted more instantly. Pepper is a brilliant author and I can’t wait for the next installment.

This is such a difficult series to write a review for, just about anything I say about the story can be considered a spoiler. I will try to refrain from any spoilage while discussing my likes/dislikes of this particular installment.

The Indebted Series by Pepper Winters is unlike any "dark" story I've read. The Debt Inheritance is just insane. The Weavers (Nila) are indebted to the Hawks (Jethro), through some seriously archaic/barbaric means, the Hawks are serious about collecting said debt. At this point, we've seen Whipping and Drowning as repayment methods, what could the 3rd debt possibly be – to up the ante on those?! Well, let’s just say it's not nice – but for some reason I feel cheated.
Can I just add, poor Emma Weaver?! The hell that woman went through hurts my heart.

At this point, I'm flip flopping on my like/dislike of both characters. At times Nila seemed too wish-washy, then Jethro seemed too low-key. At about 50% both characters seem to find who they are [eventually] – and stick to it (thankfully).

I just can't fathom why Jethro keeps playing this game, and why Nila is determined to win. Finally, though, we do find out what afflicts Jethro and I think that helped to clarify his character.
I know the "cliff-hanger" has been mentioned, but the gawd...the ending is worth the purchase price of this book period.

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.

She loves to travel and has an amazing, fabulous hubby (who speaks French—hot!) who puts up with her love affair with her book boyfriends.
