Fourth Book in the New York Times Bestselling Indebted Series.

“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...

NOOOOOOOOO!!!!! NO NO NO NO! HOLY MOTHER OF BOOK LOVERS! This book was amazing I never wanted it to end and now I have to wait until August for more. PEPPER! PLEASE HAVE MERCY ON US! Don't make us wait too long. August seems so far away. The suspense in this book almost made me pee my pants. Lol. But the love between Jethro and Nila is so unbelievably strong I could feel it coming off the pages. When Jethro finally opens up to Nila about his true illness I cried my eyes out. I couldn't even begin to imagine how it would feel to be him let alone make it one day in his life. And the love you know he feels for his sister Jaz and for his brother Kes is so heart warming. Not to mention the hatred we all feel for brother Daniel and his father Cut. But Cut is the epitome of evil. He is satan incarnate and Cut's mother Bonnie is hells fire. Then the end of this book scrambled my freakin mind. I was screaming ugly crying. Lol. There's suspense around every corner and had my heart racing. I will be a nervous wreck waiting for the forth debt. Lol. I extremely recommend this series to everyone. If your not reading this series your a fool. Pepper is an amazing author and storyteller and I look forward to everything she writes. :- )

I loved and enjoyed the captivating, engaging, spellbinding, heart wrenching, fourth book in the Indebted series by the outstanding, extraordinary author Pepper Winters. Nila's brother has rescued her from Jethro and his family, but Nila's spirit is back with Jethro and longs to go back to him.  Meanwhile, Jethro's father, Cut, is back to molding his son into the the man he wants him to be.  When Jethro comes backs for Nila, he is a cold, unfeeling man ready to deliver the debt punishment.   Read the highly recommended, wonderfully written, romantic love story of the star crossed lovers, Nila and Jethro.  Can't wait for the fifth book in the series.

Another great chapter in Nila and Jethro story. Wish I didn't have to wait to August to find out what's going to happen next!!

 Please remember the review section is for a review of the story, not a Barnes and Noble pre-order review. I had the same problem and called customer service at 800-843-2665.They were very pleasant and apologetic. The customer service rep refreshed my Nook and the book was uploaded. The whole process took 5 minutes. As a fan of Ms. Winters I also want to mention that she doesn't disappoint. I can't wait to see where she's going next.

This series is words. Demented, insane, and so much intense feeling. I am dying to read the last books. Anticipating what twisted insanity will come.

Oh my, how can i love this book and hate it all at the same time. By far this is the best book in the series, im not sure how anything can top it. Finally we understand jethro and fall for him in ways i never thought possible. Kes finally steals my heart and i trust him. jethro needs family like him around, yet the bad guys seem to always be one step ahead and this time they appear to have won. On to the next book, i just cant stop after an ending like that.

I can never say too much about PW's books, especially this series because I never want to give anything away but OMG! this one took me by surprise. Very creative way of getting the characters past the ending of the previous book. This fact also made it somewhat easier for me to handle the 3rd debt. We've all know what it is & I really couldn't stomach the thought. But PW is amazing. I can't fathom how she comes up with these things. We finally learn what Jethro's condition is, so that's worth it . Just when you breath a sigh of relief, she pulls out the big guns (no pun intended) & leaves you absolutely speechless. - Fists and kicks and bullets might maim and destroy, but tears out your insides and leaves you hollow, leaving you destined to live an empty existence until death. Lucky for me, I wouldn't have to live long knowing Jethro could never love me.

This is a relly good series, but oh so frustrating waiting long periods for the next books. I ordred this book, but have not read it yet. I will wait until the author finishes all of the series, so I read one after the other.

WHAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAT?!?!?!?! What the heck was that? That wasn’t a cliffhanger. I’m not hanging from a cliff here! I’m sliding down the mother-freaking summit to end all mother-freaking summits!!! I understand how Jethro feels because I feel like I’ve been buried under an avalanche of emotions. I’m overwhelmed, yet numb. My mind has been boggled. Third Debt is an intense series of highs and lows. I don’t want to call it an emotional rollercoaster because there’s not a lot of happiness found within and what bits of happiness do occur are tainted by the darkness that pervades the Hawks. It’s a bad case of whiplash in the very best way. This installment picks up right where Second Debt ended, with Nila’s liberation from Hawksridge Hall. Nila has no understanding of the repercussions her departure will cause and as awareness sets in before she has even left the grounds she tries to return to Jethro but is unable to. As Nila learns yet again that she has absolutely no control over her life, Jethro is forced to face his failure in collecting the debts. Cut’s cruelty knows no bounds, but he attempts to convince Jethro (and the reader) that he does love his son as he offers Jethro an alternative. Yet all are aware that there is no choice being given, rather Jethro’s trading of one cage for another.  As the third debt must be paid, it is obvious that Nila must return to Hawksridge. And while she does so with a plan, she underestimates Cut’s cunning and finds herself in a worse situation than in the beginning. The level of detachment and coldness that Jethro displays in Third Debt exceeds that of previous installments, yet Cut’s cage proves to be an unworthy opponent in the face of Nila’s love. But a woman in love can only endure so much abuse of her heart, body, and trust before that love is snuffed out and the third debt promises to do just that … cut the tie that binds Nila and Jethro once and for all. Yet again I found myself disgusted by the Weaver ancestor’s behavior that led to the third debt. Honestly, I’m not sure whose depravity disgusts me more – the Weaver ancestor or Cut and Daniel. Granted, Kes and Jethro are not innocent in their actions, but they don’t take pleasure in collection of the debts the same way that Cut and Daniel do. And that ending. I have not felt the fear for Nila in any of the installments that I do now for her. I see the Fourth Debt as a train wreck (and I’m not talking about the writing) – I don’t want to be witness to the horrifying events that are soon to become a part of Nila’s life and yet I can’t NOT see them. I HAVE to know what comes next. I have to know if the ending of Third Debt is as it appears or not. I take nothing for granted when it comes to Ms. Winters’ writing and thus begins the countdown to the Fourth Debt AND the Final Debt. Fingers don’t fail me now. I received a complimentary copy of the book in exchange for an honest review.  Reviewed by Angela at Crystal's Many Reviewers!

Oh Hell Yes There is so much I can say about this series but the biggest is .. I NEED MORE NOW!!!! Pepper takes you on a roller-coaster ride and you while you are so dizzy you can't stand it but you never want to get off. It is just that good! Now this one has a big cliffhanger and after finishing this book I went through the stages of book grief. ANGRY, SAD, PISSED and then CALM. I decided to trust Pepper as she knows what she is doing. The next debt is out in August and you can pre-order now.

The series is entertaining. Lots of twists. Nila irritates me with her constantly changing persona but I understand the reason for it. What I hate is that the books are not full length, even though the synopsis says they are. 170ish-200 pages on my NOOK and 7 pages of it are "about the author" etc at the end. By the end of the series we'll have spent around $20. I'm tired of this and as a result I have to remove a star.

5 “Do You Trust Me” Stars! Seriously Shocking and Relentlessly Riveting! I Couldn’t Put This Book Down!  The Review:  Holy crap! W-What just happened? That ending... THAT ENDING HAS SLAYED ME! No one and I mean no one can write a cliffy like this author. She lures you into a false sense of sedation where things are never right but mildly calm. Then wham, your entire world is rocked and you’re left wide-eyed and slack jawed!  Mind. Effing. Blown!  This series so far has been a raging tilt-a-whirl and just when I didn’t think things could get more complicated, she goes and puts the whammy on me. Third Debts is a well timed bomb ready to detonate and detonate it did! From the beginning of this read, your completely at this story’s mercy and enthralled to the earth shattering end. Waiting for the next installment is going to be absolutely torture. But yeah, I totally love every minute of this intense, dark, angsty, soul-sucking read! The Story Rundown:  In the last book, Nila was rescued from Hell only to be thrown into Purgatory where the wondering and waiting are unbearable. Her vertigo has taken over her life and she morns and craves the release of her sinister, gilded cage. She should be happy she’s free, but she left behind her other half. She should be safe, but it’s all an illusion and the Hawks are the magicians.  Since Nila left and his true desires discovered, Cut has given Jethro one last chance to prove he can be the deserving heir to the Hawk legacy. Giving in to Cuts demands, Jethro spends his days in a blessed fog, a void so unreachable, he’s become a lone glacier surrounded by icy waters. Not even his beloved sister or brother can find their way through. This false sense of relief has delighted his father and in doing so, he’s been welcomed back into the family fold. Now he must fulfill his family's destiny and carry out the final debt. Characters and Thoughts...  Nila. From the moment she stepped on the canvas she’s been a fluctuating, indecisive character. She couldn’t seem to come to a conclusion about her heart, her sanity or her motives in the situation she was forced into. And I totally understand. She’s surrounded by demons and the one person she thinks she could find solace with is an ice block determined to keep her away. I have loved her strength and her fortitude even when it wavered. She’s unlike any heroine I’ve ever read. She’s got this light that even the Hawks can’t extinguish, even though they’ve all tried in one way or the other. Jethro and the Hawks. Jethro is an icy island surrounded by thundering waves but Nila seems to be the only one who can break past those currents and find the real man underneath. Even in his self-medicated void, she managed to find him. As much as I love Jethro, there were moments in this story that I wondered WHY Jethro was so determined to disconnect. You know he has feelings for Nila so why not break out into the total baddie that we know him to be and take this situation under control. I was disappointed in him with how he craved that mind numbing void when he could have so much more. Then the author gives us the reasons. She FINALLY tells us what Jethro is... and though it was a well thought out explanation and it fills in all those blanks, I wasn’t sure I liked it. It almost tipped the story in a direction I wasn’t prepared for, but I should have held back my reservations. Once we explore why Jethro “feels” the way he feels and is the way he is and actually get to see inside his mind, that explanation becomes something “more” and it’s actually really beautiful and intense and so exceptional that it’s absolutely perfect. And it explains everything. Added on top of that, the devil himself, Cut, has thought of every possible avenue to keep Jethro in line, there’s not much Jethro can do on the surface. It’s going to take an incredible amount of cunning to accomplish the impossible and I have no idea how any of them are going to get out alive. I can honestly say that from the beginning I didn’t know which side Kestrel's allegiance lay. I thought he was playing sides or biding his time to see what the outcome would be before he made his move. I am thrilled that we finally learn more about him in this book and we finally get to see where his mind is truly at. The Weavers. It’s simple. Vaughn nor Tex are any match for the vileness that are the Hawks. What might have started out as a way to repay the grisly misdeeds done to the Hawks has turned into something so horrifically dark and abhorrent that the Hawks have superseded anything the Weavers ancestors have done.  The Wrap Up:  I have no idea how this story will end. I can only imagine with two more books, things are going to get even worse and I didn’t think that was possible. And the ending? Left me completely horrified. But I totally trust that Pepper Winters is going to again lay gold at our feet with a sordid, passionate, extremely intense journey and though I know from past experience I’m totally unprepared for it, I’m excited and thrilled to see how this all unfolds. *Written for Craves the Angst Book Reviews*

I've read books with numerous cliffhangers.  I've always been eager to read the next book and taken some time to process the abrupt ending, but I've never been so stunned I wanted to grab the author and shake her by the shoulders while shouting, "What have you done?!" over and over again. Well Third Debt changed all of that. I can say this book has given me a serious book hangover.  How can I go on after experiencing such trauma at the hands of a story? The story picks up where the last book left off and it was such a huge twist I hadn't seen coming.  I was worried about what a separation would do to both of them and it seems my worries were for good reason. I felt both Jethro and Nila's pains at being separated. I also understood how adrift Nila felt at being thrust back into her old life after so long and having the blinders taken off. The reality she was facing was much different from the one she'd left when she was taken in Milan. Just when I thought I might have Jethro figured out, he turned the tables on everyone.  I couldn't understand what his condition was that caused Cut to hate him.  His behavior was also completely sketchy.  You never knew if you were going to get the strong arrogant guy, or the sympathetic and understanding lover. It wasn't just Jethro who was a mystery, Kestrel, and Jasmine, two of his siblings were just as mysterious too.  It wasn't just their knowledge of Jethro that made them interesting, but also what they wanted from Jethro and what had happened to them in the past, that I was eager to know. Once again Pepper Winters has written a very masterful story.  She manages to somehow further the story of the Hawks and Weavers while giving readers few answers and raising even more. I was completely gripped by this dark and twisted tale.  I was so absorbed in what was happening, I didn't even realize I was weeping. It's amazing how painful and full of despair Nila and Jethro's journey to freedom is, yet still beautiful and hopeful. I know since I was blown away by the end, there are going to be some disgruntled readers, but somehow I think waiting for the next installment in August will be worth it.

I was thrilled to finally get to read Third Debt because I really wanted to know what was going to happen with Nila and Jethro. I will tell you that the emotional roller coaster ride this book took me on was almost too much to bear! At one point I put it down and told myself I couldn’t read anymore but then I had to know what happened. The ending of this book made me want to curl into a little ball and cry like a baby. When I finished it I said ” I’m not reading the next one. No way! No how!” Yeah that’s a like because I have to know. I have to know if that ending was all part of some elaborate plan or what.  Jethro’s brother Daniel I HATE!!! I mean with a I want to reach through the pages and rip out his heart. He don’t need it because don’t have one and neither does their father or Grandmother for that matter. Those three better get their comeuppances or I am going to be one peeved off chica! Jethro tries so hard to not love Nila, going to far as to take pills. However he simply can’t even if loving her will be the death of them both. Nila loves Jethro more than she ever could imagine and now the third debt has come due. It is a horrendous debt too. If you haven’t read the series yet Nila is a Weaver and her family,generations ago, wronged the Hawks (Jethro’s family) and now thanks to a contract the first born daughter of the Weavers has to pay each of the debts. I use the term debts lightly too because it is really more torture than anything. In the Third Debt we finally find out what is wrong with Jethro as well. It wasn’t what I expected it be and I must say that I LOVE it! I too suffer from this particular issue (not to Jethro’s extreme) and love that someone put it into words, so to speak. These characters are well written and even though the story is dark it is one of my favorites. **I received a copy of the book in exchange for my review. All opinions expressed are 100% my own.**
