Blog Tour: Debt Inheritance by Pepper Winters; Review + Giveaway





Debt Inheritance (Indebted #1)
Author: Pepper Winters
Release Day: 18 August 2014

“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

Excerpt

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.



Review


It's no surprise to me that this book raised a myriad of emotions in me, and I was glued to my kindle whilst reading it. Pepper Winters has such a wonderful flair for dark stories, and she can can suck you straight into her style of twisted romance and have you thinking about it for days.

Nila is a really interesting heroine, and she has such contrasting aspects to her personality. She's very naive and sheltered, her father and brother are very protective and have kept her close. She doesn't date, instead she pours her heart and soul into her work as a fashion designer. When she is stolen away by Jethro, she's terrified about her fate but she still manages to show surprising moments of real strength that hint at the fierce fighter she is underneath. Despite the horror of her situation, I have high hopes that Nila is going to be a pretty awesome and kick ass woman by the end of her ordeal.

Jethro most definitely is an anti hero. At this point in the story he doesn't seem to have any redeemable qualities, except for an attraction to Nila. He's cold, cruel and calculating. He's happily willing to do whatever it takes to get Nila into his possession so he can take her back to Hawk manor. He's eager to begin using her as his own personal pet. Obviously, he's ridiculously hot and domineering so you definitely want him to become redeemable, but we'll see.

I completely devoured this book. It shocked me, and appalled me at times but I was entranced through the whole of it. It has a wicked allure woven through the words that makes you rather desperate for more!

This is only the beginning of a dark story that I suspect will take us into a labyrinth of surprises and corrupt history. There are a mountain of questions to be answered, but I'm happy enough to let it all play out gradually as the series continues. I'm very excited to see what the rest of the series will bring and to find out more about the characters!

*I received a review copy for my honest opinion. Thank you!
