Fourth Debt by Pepper Winters Blog Tour

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.

**Only suitable for Dark Romance lovers.**
Full length book. Six in series. Fourth Debt is 85,000 words.

Daniel cackled like a mad hyena, his fingers stabbing into my bicep. Without breaking his stride, he stole me further away from the parlour and into the bowels of the house.

I didn’t want to go. I didn’t want to go anywhere with him.

“Take me back!”

He can’t be dead!

Just because he lay unmoving and bloody didn’t mean he was gone.

That’s exactly what it means.

I shook my head, dislodging those awful thoughts. He’s alive. He had to be.

I couldn’t tolerate any other answer. I refused to live in a world where evil triumphed over good. That wasn’t right—life couldn’t be that cruel.

It’s always been that way.

My mind filled with images of my mother. My father’s desolation. My broken childhood. Evil had puppeteered us from day one. Why should now be any different?

He’s not dead!

I swallowed a sob.

Please don’t be dead…

I fought harder. “Let me see him. You can’t do this!”

Daniel cackled louder. “Keep begging, Weaver. Won’t do you any good.”

He’s not dead!

I locked my knees, fighting him every step. “Stop!” Looking back the way we’d come, the door to the parlour seemed so far away—a bright beacon at the end of a festering corridor. “They were your brothers, you insane psychopath. Don’t you feel anything?!”

Please let me go to him. He has to be alive…

Please let my twin stay alive…

Let all of this be a nightmare!

I couldn’t cope with Jethro murdered; I’d go clinically insane if they killed V, too.

“I feel relief. I no longer have to put up with their simpering bullshit.” He flashed his teeth. “Cut did us all a favour.”

Cut will die.

He was evil incarnate. He deserved to die in excruciatingly painful ways.

I refuse to believe they’re dead.

“I said stop!” I wriggled harder, only succeeding in Daniel’s fingers tearing into my flesh. Goosebumps covered my skin while ice steadily froze my veins. Every second was endless torture. I couldn’t live without Jethro.

It can’t end like this!

“You won’t win, Weaver.” Daniel tugged harder. “Accept what’s fucking happened and obey me.”

Reviews by the Wicked Reads Review Team

Ugh, I don’t even know how to write this review. I was soooo excited for this next installment but for me it just didn’t meet my expectations. I can’t even pinpoint why, I think it might not have been dark enough maybe? Not sure. Sure there were parts that were twisted but I guess I was expecting more. Don’t get me wrong, it was a good book and I will read the next book, it just wasn’t my favorite so far. I don’t want to give any of the storyline away. I have already seen too many people do that online and it just ticks people off. There were really good parts and then some really blah parts for me but I am a diehard Pepper Winters fan and I really do look forward to seeing what happens with the next debt.

Characters: The characters were well written.
Sex: Yes
Religious: No
Would I recommend to others: Yes
More than one book in the series: Yes
Genre: Dark Romance
Would I read more by this author: Yes

Upon finishing Third Debt (book 4 of the Indebted series) I was left feeling intense anxiety, worry, and despair. Thankfully Fourth Debt was able to pick up exactly where we left off (not that I was happy with it).

The beginning was slow and depressing, but eventually picked up steam. Nila is alone, she has no allies in the Hawk home and although she tries to be strong and vengeful, she has no one to keep her grounded. Bonnie, Daniel, Cut, and Jasmine all show their true colors and provide more information regarding the debts which I found to be interesting, but not enough to keep my attention.

I hate to say it, but I really felt "strung-along" in this installment. Mainly we read about more torture without any relief! Thankfully, toward the end of the book I did start to enjoy the story – just to end on another Cliff-hanger (totally expected, though).

This story really delved into the other Hawks: the bond between siblings, the perverseness of mother/father/son (Bonnie/Cut/Daniel), and the mental fortitude of those who've been wronged by this family.

With the Final Debt coming up – will Nila get her revenge? Will there be a happy ending? It's anyone's guess.

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.
