The Third Book in the New York Times Bestselling Series.
"I tried to play a game. I tried to wield deceit as perfectly as the Hawks. But when I thought I was winning, I wasn't. Jethro isn't what he seems—he's the master of duplicity. However, I refuse to let him annihilate me further."
Nila Weaver has grown from naïve seamstress to full-blown fighter. Every humdrum object is her arsenal, and sex…sex is her greatest weapon of all.
She's paid the First Debt. She'll probably pay more.
But she has no intention of letting the Hawks win.
Jethro Hawk has found more than a worthy adversary in Nila—he's found the woman who could destroy him. There's a fine line between hatred and love, and an even finer path between fear and respect.
The fate of his house rests on his shoulders, but no matter how much ice lives inside his heart, Nila flames too bright to be extinguished.
280 pages--full length book.

Couldn’t PUT it down
On to the next one, I don’t know what I will do when I finish all of this series- I’ve never read anything like it ♥️
I love this series.
I am immersed in the confusing minds of Jethro and Nila. It's clever the directions Pepper takes your mind to. One minute you think to yourself ok this is a good idea then bam no it's taking a different turn. Love the uncertainty of this debt. I love how neither one is willing to bow to the other.
Wow! Pepper has me nervously hanging on the edge of my seat waiting with trepidation for what's about to be revealed.
Pepper you make it so hard to have a life outside this book. My mind can only focus on the words written in this book and nothing else. I am consumed.
The Hawk brothers are very competitive. This debt is about power and some of the brothers like to test that power.
I lost myself in the passion of the story. I became emotionally invested. I devoured every word written.
At times I can't read fast enough to find out what happens and then I'm disappointed with myself because if I read too quickly it will be over and then I'm at a loss. It's a conundrum. I need to savor it.
The clever innuendos makes the story challenging and rewarding.
Having both POV's gives me a completeness by offering the tender emotions and obligations filled by both.
The anticipation of this next debt is tortuous.
It's a tug of war between lust and obligation.
It's them against the family and the family is unpredictable. Never get too confident or comfortable because the Hawks have debts to be paid.
Pepper is a mastermind at dark, twisted, erotic, and clever plots. Pepper creates a unique world of vivid desire and emotion.
Clear your weekend because you are going to need the time to sit down uninterrupted while you devour word by word of this tantalizing story.
