You say I’ll never own you. If I win—you willingly give me that right. You sign not only the debt agreement, but another—one that makes me your master until your last breath is taken. You do that, and I’ll give you this.”
Nila Weaver’s family is indebted. Stolen, taken, and bound not by monsters but by an agreement written over six hundred years ago, she has no way out.
She belongs to Jethro as much as she denies it.
Jethro Hawk’s patience is running out. His inheritance gift tests, challenges, and surprises him—and not in good ways. He hasn’t leashed her but he thinks he might’ve found a way to bind her forever.
Debts are mounting. Payment waiting.
At the end of the first book Jethro allowed Nila to make a run for freedom, knowing full well that he could easily find her. He said he’d give her a forty-five minute head start but only gave her twenty and rounded up the dogs and set out to bring her back.
Nila heard the dogs and knew they would find her so she climbed high in a tree. Jethro knew she was there but pretended not to notice until some time had passed. Finally, he made himself know and Nila came down. Heated tempers and words lead to a sexual encounter and afterwards they returned to Hawks Hall.
Jethro try to distance himself from Nila because he feels his defenses weakening every time he’s near her. While he’s away, Nila gets closer to his brother, Kestrel, whom Nila thinks is the one who goes by Kite007 when texting her.
Eventually Jethro gives in to Nila and uses her name instead of Ms. Weaver, when they have sex. She also concedes and begs him to have sex with her. He knows that by having pleasurable sex with her he is breaking all the rules of the Hawks concerning a Weaver Whore, and they could both end up dying.
Afterwards, he again stays away from Nila and temptation and that leaves Nila alone with her phone. She ends it with Kite007 and runs into Kestrel and finds out that Jethro’s nickname is KITE.
Five stars *****
