Blog Tour, Review & Giveaway - Debt Inheritance (Indebted #1) by Pepper Winters


“I own you. I have the piece of paper to prove it. It’s undeniable and unbreakable. You belong to me until you’ve paid off your debts.”

Nila Weaver’s family is indebted. Being the first born daughter, her life is forfeit to the first born son of the Hawks to pay for sins of ancestors past. The dark ages might have come and gone, but debts never leave.

She has no choice in the matter.

She is no longer free.

Jethro Hawk receives Nila as an inheritance present on his twenty-ninth birthday. Her life is his until she’s paid off a debt that’s centuries old. He can do what he likes with her—nothing is out of bounds—she has to obey.
There are no rules.

Only payments.
A modern day Dark Erotic Romance

Meet Jethro & Nila

ONE - Nila's POV

“Huge disappointment, Ms. Weaver.” His cold glare sent a snowstorm wiping away the bonfire in my belly. “I’m done playing games, so cut the bullshit. Time to begin the day.” His voice gave no room for interpretation. A cold draft shot down my back.

My brief reprieve from debts and horrible Hawks was over. I’d been shown something I desperately wanted, but denied it because I failed to please him.

“You could teach me…show me how…” I couldn’t make eye contact with him. Mortification painted my cheeks for both admitting I was clueless and asking a monster to coach me.

Jethro laughed. “You think that will save you from what’s coming? Was that your little plan? To make me fuck you in the hopes I might feel something for you?”

TWO - Jethro's POV

I stood up slowly, clicking my tongue. “Ah, ah, ah, Ms. Weaver. Don’t take that tone with me. You’re the failure. You’re the prisoner. You take what I give you. You do not assume to have any say or authority. That includes listening to everything I deem important to tell you.” Ghosting to a stop in front of her, I murmured, “Is that quite understood?”

I flexed my muscles, welcoming back the soothing chillness of control. I hadn’t liked stepping outside my confines of civility. Things got messy when silence was disrupted. Things got rushed when tempers rose and curses flowed.

And I didn’t want to rush her undoing. I wanted to savour it. Devour it.

Today's review is from my lovely guest reviewer Mandi!
It is no secret how much I love the deeply dark, twisted and delicious mind of Pepper Winters. The woman has this way of writing that keeps me absolutely mesmerized. It doesn’t matter if she’s writing about rape, a man ravished by his past, sex slavery and drugs or a love that is strong enough to overcome anything life throws at it. It is all written so beautifully. This book is no different, the story however is. It is a tough task for an author to write stories that no one else is but Pepper always seems to find a way. I can guarantee you right now that you won’t find a story similar to this anywhere. The picture she paints is almost vintage in its elegance and barbaric nature of the debt, yet still modern. A woman given freely by her family to a man, a very bad man, to repay a century’s old debt? How does she think this stuff up? I am in awe of her.
This is to be a serial, though each book is longer than any serial I have ever read. I can’t go into too much detail for obvious reasons but I will say that Pepper has given us a man to fall in love with who is by far her baddest bad guy to date.
Jethro is dark and broody, sensual and dangerous sometimes all at once putting your senses on overload. I wanted to dislike him. I tried to dislike him because I knew that he wasn’t a good guy, but I couldn’t help but swoon every time he opened his mouth. His words and actions shouldn’t have had the effect on me that they did because they were often times deplorable, laced with violence and danger but with just enough sensuality to have me wrapped around his little finger utterly scandalized and intrigued. What more could you possibly look for in a leading man? I mean, who needs hearts and flowers and pretty words when you can be brought to your knees by a man like Jet? Not I.
Nila (pronounced NEELA. I asked) is a talented clothing designer sheltered from the world by her twin brother and father. Turns out that they had reason to keep her sheltered though no one but her father knows the disparity behind it. Unfortunately for Nila they’ve done her no favors and have left her vulnerable and unable to handle a man like Jethro and his demanding demeanor. She is almost like a fragile bird made unsteady by an illness that she has no control over. A frail bird thrust into a fight or flight situation that she must learn to navigate with obedience, strength and poise if she hopes to survive it, the debt she is too pay off and especially the man collecting on it.
This book will have you on the very edge of your seat from the first word and keep you there until the very end when you’re left wondering what in the feck is wrong with you, with Nila and with Pepper for leaving you longing for more Jethro and all of his sexy, sinister glory.

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 puts up with her love affair with her book boyfriends.
Her Dark Erotica books include:
Tears of Tess (Monsters in the Dark #1)
