ABOUT THE BOOK: Release Date August 18, 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
REVIEW: DEBT INHERITANCE is the first instalment in Pepper Winters’s dark, erotic, adult contemporary INDEBTED series. This is NOT your mother’s romantic fairytale. In fact there is very little romance to be had in this particular instalment. This is a story about a six hundred year old debt-one that comes due with the birth of each first born Weaver daughter-and Nila Weaver is its’ next payment. DEBT INHERITANCE is not for everybody. If you take issue with dark, tormented and controversial storylines where morality and legality tread a fine line with non-consensual sex and assault, then this book and series are not for you.
Pepper Winters is a writer who pushes the boundaries of contemporary romance. Her stories call forth such emotional and visceral reactions that it leaves the reader exhausted but wanting more. The Weaver family debt has come to fruition and Nila must pay with both her freedom and her body. Never knowing the truth behind her mother’s disappearance, Nila endeavors to survive in a world where the end result will wipe her out of existence. She is a pawn, a slave, a payment rendered for the sins of the past and she will pay with her life.
Jethro Hawk is a dominant male who will be inheriting the mantle of the Hawk patriarch on his thirtieth birthday. But at twenty nine years old he will learn his family fate and about a six hundred year old debt that must be paid-over and over again. He is a man torn between the duties of family and his need for a woman who represents a dark and dangerous past and possibly his own future.
DEBT INHERITANCE is brilliant in its presentation; controversial in topic; and sensational is its portrayal. The premise is alarming, suspenseful, heartbreaking and full of anguish for a woman who knows nothing about her family’s history but is meant to pay for the sins of the past. The imagery is distressing, destructive and tragic, and we only get a glimpse at the possibilities of what is to come.

Excerpt: Debt Inheritance: Meet Jethro & Nila
ONE – Nina’s POV
“Huge disappointment, Ms. Weaver.” His cold glare sent a snowstorm wiping away the bonfire in my belly. “I’m done playing games, so cut the bullshit. Time to begin the day.” His voice gave no room for interpretation. A cold draft shot down my back.
My brief reprieve from debts and horrible Hawks was over. I’d been shown something I desperately wanted, but denied it because I failed to please him.
“You could teach me…show me how…” I couldn’t make eye contact with him. Mortification painted my cheeks for both admitting I was clueless and asking a monster to coach me.
Jethro laughed. “You think that will save you from what’s coming? Was that your little plan? To make me f*ck you in the hopes I might feel something for you?”
TWO – Jethro’s POV
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.
