“You say I’ll never own you. If I win—you willingly give me that right. You sign not only the debt agreement, but another—one that makes me your master until your last breath is taken. You do that, and I’ll give you this.”
Nila Weaver’s family is indebted. Stolen, taken, and bound not by monsters but by an agreement written over six hundred years ago, she has no way out.
She belongs to Jethro as much as she denies it.
Jethro Hawk’s patience is running out. His inheritance gift tests, challenges, and surprises him—and not in good ways. He hasn’t leashed her but he thinks he might’ve found a way to bind her forever.
Debts are mounting. Payment waiting.

Nila has been given the chance to run for her freedom. It's a chance that she knows is likely not fair, a chance that won't happen. It's the risk she has to take though and it helps her to develop a plan. It's a plan that's as dangerous as it is foolhardy. It's also one that puts Jethro and herself at risk.

This book gives us clues as to who Kite007 is and at the very end the truth of his identity. This part of the story is full of twists, most of them surprising. As Nila becomes both comfortable and fearful, she's a contradiction at all times. The first debt is paid and she's looking at the second. If the debts get worse as they go, she may be in for some very harsh times.

Jethro is so complex in this book that I feel truly bad for him. He has a conscience and it's creating problems to the point you wander if he is truly mentally unstable at times, not that anyone in the family could be sane. I actually think I felt worse for him than Nila in this book.

Then there is Kes. He's so different from the rest that you wonder if it's real. I guess we'll have to wait for the books to come to find out if there's an ulterior motive. Just as I wonder of the others in the house and why they do the things they do.

This is an amazing sequel to the first book and I can't wait for the rest of the series. The book brought about many answers from the first book, but there are just as many new questions now. The ending was priceless. Truly I don't know how she didn't see it coming. It's again a little cliffy, but a great place to stop at. This is an amazingly gripping series and one that doesn't let go when it's taken it's hold.

Excerpt #1
A small gasp fell from my lips as his fingers kissed the paper-thin skin. His eyes held me hostage. The golden brown was now a swirling bronze, raging with the same demanding hunger I knew reflected in mine.
“This sort of reminds me of the forest,” I whispered. “The trees around us—no one else.” My words fell like petals, waiting for Jethro to crush them beneath his glossy shoe.
But…he didn’t.
Tracing one hand from my wrist, along the inside of my arm, and right to my throat, he fisted my ponytail. With intensity that stripped my soul to the very essence of who I was, he pulled my head back slowly, sensually, full of sexual power.
His eyes dropped to my mouth. “I’ll let you in on a little secret, Ms. Weaver.”
I panted, my neck straining against his hold, but I made no move to break the poignant awareness.
“You won that night, but I lied when I said it pissed me off.” His mouth dropped, his tongue licked my bottom lip with the barest of grazes.
