“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
Upon turning 29 Jethro finds out that he has inherited something he wasn't quite expecting. The first born of the Weaver, a woman. A woman who happens to be very famous and just launched a new line of clothing via a fashion show in Milan. The way everything goes down is just WOW! You have an uber hot guy that has the whole vibrates darkness and lust persona down pat. What isn't apparent is just how much of that is real and lethal.
Bring in Nila, she's been sheltered her whole life. Thanks to her brooding and domineering father and brother she has had very limited experience with the opposite sex. To the point that she comes off priggish and uptight. She has desires, but maintains them in her own way. When introduced to Jethro, she's thrown off. There's temptation there, but something else is there as well.
This book is truly dark and twisted. It's a modern read with a regency feel at times. This family is definitely into their roots and rules. The ending shocked me and left me turning the page ready to scream. It's a cliffy and the next part can't get here too soon! This book will pull you into the story and you won't want to escape it. I felt like I was right there with Squirrel myself.
I'm anxious to see who Kite007 is. I have some theories. I love the way the back story to the debt is given piece by piece. Of course, we still don't have all the story. What did the Weavers do? Gah! Book 2 First Debt needs to be here soon to answer all my questions.
This is a 5 star book. I wish it wasn't a cliffy, but love the way the story flowed and ebbed. The premise for the book is amazing. It's unlike anything I've read before and I've read plenty. Love it and can't wait to see how the rest of the series unfolds.
Excerpt: Debt Inheritance: Meet Jethro & Nina
ONE - Nina'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?”
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.
