By Pepper Winters
Third Book in the NYT 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.
Second Debt has Pepper Winters directing the reader along a certain path and she just literally smacks you in the face, freezes your heart, ties your insides up and drags you off on another near death experience of the soul.
I was emotionally spent after reading this, the pond scene left my heart ripped apart, hands shaking and I was lost in a dark tunnel with Nila. How can these men and grandmother do such unspeakable acts to another human being. Nila is so damaged after this debt and the hot bath scene, well really words fail me.
Must admit though to a little fantasy of Jet, Nila & Kes together now that would be a master stroke of genius perhaps I should keep that as my own little fantasy!
I am beginning to understand Jet and no wonder he is a walking bipolar human being, Dan is a psycho pure and simple and scares the crap out of me and Kestrel I am not entirely sure of as he is holding so much back. Now the sister, we got major information about in this book after all the snippets so that is really intriguing and why is she damaged that way? The premise that Jet and Nila met as children, how can a father do this, what exactly is being held over this family that in the modern day still stands strong.
The ending, I have so many theories and all through this book it was about the Weaver women choosing to be where they are, why they did not run? I think Nila will make a similar choice which is incredible considering the ending of #3.
Is this all a play by play from a handbook of the Weavers and Hawks. Is Destiny already set no matter how we wish it to play out? Is Nila literally just following in her ancestors footprints as they are all programmed that way.
Will Nila fall pregnant, I would love that cat amongst the pigeons as there seems to be no children from the Weaver and Hawk encounters or was there?
I do not trust Pepper Winters which is why I love her stories so much.
