“She healed me. She broke me. I set her free. But we are in this together. We will end this together. The rules of this ancient game can’t be broken.”
Nila Weaver no longer recognises herself. She’s left her lover, her courage, and her promise. Two debts down. Too many to go.
Jethro Hawk no longer recognises himself. He’s embraced what he always ran from, and now faces punishment far greater than he feared.
It’s almost time. It’s demanding to be paid.
The Third Debt will be the ultimate test…
After Nila is rescued, Cut marches Jethro down to the dungeon to let Daniel(the psycho) beat him to within an inch of his life and he’s not allowed to fight back. After the beating, Cut makes a deal with Jethro telling him he has new drugs that will “cure” him so that they can Nila back and finish with the Debt Inheritance. Cut says it’s that so he’d give her over to Daniel. So Jethro starts the drugs only to find that he has underestimated Cut-Cut knew what these pills would do to him. They made Jet’s mind like a sponge, ready to absorb all the hate that Cut fed it.
The Hawks had always hated Nila’s brother, V, but now they despised him because he was going to all the social media outlets and telling the world all about the Hawks and their sinister Debt Inheritance practices, trying to bring down their empire. But all this publicity had also effected Nila’s family, causing her vertigo bouts to triple, her father to become a hermit and the news media to hound their entire family.
After several days, Nila can not longer stand it, and texts Kite just as Cut knew she would. The trap was set. Cut tells Jethro that if Nila is pregnant when they get her back, not to worry, he’ll get rid of it. Jet is just numb and wants to Debt Inheritance to be over.
After almost a month Kite answers her text saying that he’s coming for her. She is willing to go but can tell from his text that he’s different.
Jet, Kerstel, and Flaw ride their motorcycles to London and threatens to kill her and her family if she doesn’t coming quietly.
Upon arrival at Hawksridge, Cut gives her contraception injection against her will and she is forced to do a live interview with Vanity Fair to ward off any more bad press now she’s back in the hands of the Hawks.
Days go by and Jethro and Nila are drawn to each other even though it is painful to him and dangerous to her. He reveals to her that his disease/diesorder is HSP. Highly Sensitive Person. He can read everyone’s emotions and they overwhelm him and so the drugs help numb him. Nila realizes that her emotions (her love) have been hurting him. He finally admits that he loves Nila and later that evening Cut comes in and tell him it’s time for the Third Debt. Jet knows that this particular debt requires him to share Nila sexually and he and Kestrel cook up a plan to fool Cut and Daniel but it goes wrong and Cut pulls a gun and shots both Kestrel and Jethro and gives Nila over to psycho Daniel. OMG! Can’t wait for the next book.
