“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.
I read the first book in the Indebted Series in two sittings, but in one day and I rated it five stars *****.
Nila Weaver is a famous fashion designer and has the world at her feet and the love of her family around her. Little does she know that because of something that happened over 600 years ago, she will soon be forced to leave her life behind and become the possession of Jethro Hawk and his family.
When she’s taken she never loses her fiery spirit and it gets her into a lot of trouble. Jethro’s job is to train her to obey and repay the debt owned to the Hawks family. She is subjected to countless sexual humiliating acts and finally can take no more and lets the Hawks have it, no holds barred. Jethro takes her out to the woods and tells her that he is going to give her forty five minutes head start and then he will hunt her down. If she can make it to the Hawk property boundary he will grant her freedom and so the debt paid in full. But if he wins, she must obey him and the other men in his family to the end of her days. And it is up to them when her last day on earth will be.
This story is powerful and will make your pulse quicken and your breathing rapid. It took me a while to relax after finishing the book, it’s that good!
