Fifth Book in the New York Times Bestselling Series.

“We’d won. We’d cut through the lies and treachery and promised an alliance that would free us both. But even as we won, we lost. We didn’t see what was coming. We didn’t know we had to plan a resurrection.”

Nila Weaver fell in love. She gifted her entire soul to a man she believed was worthy. And in the process, she destroyed herself. Three debts paid, the fourth only days away. The Debt Inheritance has almost claimed another victim.

Jethro Hawk fell in love. He let down his walls to a woman he believed was his cure. For a moment, he was free. But then he paid the ultimate price.

There is no more love. Only war. Hope is dead. Now, there is only death all around them.

**Only suitable for Dark Romance lovers.

Full length book. Six in series. Fourth Debt is 85,000 words.

FUNNY HOW LIFE plays practical jokes.
The past few days—that had to be a fucking joke, right?
No logical answer would make sense of what I’d seen, heard, and lived the past seventy-two hours.
My sister.
My best friend and twin.
This was what she’d been living with? This was how she’d been treated?
This was what she wanted to return to?
Motherfucking why? Why would she ever want to return to this insanity?
We’d been raised in a broken home, chained to an empire that absorbed us right from birth. But we were kept safe, warm, and loved. We grew up together. We shared everything.
But now…I had no fucking clue who my sister was.
But then she came to me.
A woman I never knew existed.
The most stunning creature I’d ever seen.
Only she didn’t come to me on feet or wings of an angel. She rolled into my life and demanded my help.
And for better or for worse…
I helped her.

Chapter One



Daniel cackled like a mad hyena, his fingers stabbing into my bicep. Without breaking his stride, he stole me further away from the parlour and into the bowels of the house.
I didn’t want to go. I didn’t want to go anywhere with him.
“Take me back!”
He can’t be dead!
Just because he lay unmoving and bloody didn’t mean he was gone.
That’s exactly what it means.
I shook my head, dislodging those awful thoughts. He’s alive. He had to be.
I couldn’t tolerate any other answer. I refused to live in a world where evil triumphed over good. That wasn’t right—life couldn’t be that cruel.
It’s always been that way.
My mind filled with images of my mother. My father’s desolation. My broken childhood. Evil had puppeteered us from day one. Why should now be any different?
He’s not dead!
I swallowed a sob.
Please don’t be dead…
I fought harder. “Let me see him. You can’t do this!”
Daniel cackled louder. “Keep begging, Weaver. Won’t do you any good.”
He’s not dead!
I locked my knees, fighting him every step. “Stop!” Looking back the way we’d come, the door to the parlour seemed so far away—a bright beacon at the end of a festering corridor. “They were your brothers, you insane psychopath. Don’t you feel anything?!”
Please let me go to him. He has to be alive…
Please let my twin stay alive…
Let all of this be a nightmare!
I couldn’t cope with Jethro murdered; I’d go clinically insane if they killed V, too.
“I feel relief. I no longer have to put up with their simpering bullshit.” He flashed his teeth. “Cut did us all a favour.”
Cut will die.
He was evil incarnate. He deserved to die in excruciatingly painful ways.
I refuse to believe they’re dead.
“I said stop!” I wriggled harder, only succeeding in Daniel’s fingers tearing into my flesh. Goosebumps covered my skin while ice steadily froze my veins. Every second was endless torture. I couldn’t live without Jethro.
It can’t end like this!
“You won’t win, Weaver.” Daniel tugged harder. “Accept what’s fucking happened and obey me.”


★★★★★ stars

I'm gutted...again. Pepper Winters took me apart piece by piece, page by page, and barely put me back together by the end of the book. She didn't spare anyone, let one Nila, Jethro, and the rest of the Weavers and Hawks. The only ones to enjoy themselves were Bonnie, Cut, and Daniel.

I can't even type their names without shuddering. I know what I'm reading is not real, but that doesn't lessen my desire to reach into my e-reader and strangle them with my bare hands. I wanted the suffering of so many to end, and yet I couldn't force myself to stop reading and put the book down. I had to know what happened next. Nothing could stop me, not the fear in my chest or my anxious nerves. 

The Weaver and Hawk Saga is still such a mystery. Each debt has revealed something but with the massive shake up in the hierarchy of power and control, things have changed. With each new revelation, Nila is left with more questions as am I. She and I may have learned about Emma, her mother, but the questions raised about Jethro's mother and uncle have been left unanswered. The mention of a past couple bonded by and in the debt was also a small peek into what might be coming for her.

Nila Weaver has an almost unbelievable will. She has been through so much and goes through so much in this book and yet she has limitless wells of strength. She relies on her different emotions to get her through the gauntlet she's facing. I admire her so much. The beauty and challenge of talking about this book is not revealing anything that could ruin the reading experiences for others. It's one that you've got to read to find out how it'll effect you. 

As someone who has repeatedly professed to not love dark romance with violence and mind games, I've become a huge fan of this series and Pepper Winters. It's become a not-so-secret addiction. I'm so invested in this story I couldn't stop even if I wanted to. Pepper is the queen of cliffhangers. I'm once again on tenterhooks about what will happen to Nila from this point on. Hope is such a precious thing and hers seems to be dwindling. Waiting as it always is going to be such sweet agony.
