~ Synopsis ~
“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
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 fuck 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.

~ Review ~
This is not a romance novel, at least not yet.
This is a story of revenge, stolen innocence, depravity and fear.
Our heroine Nila Weaver's world changes when her father releases her to the care of Jethro Hawk.
She has been protected her whole life by her father and her brother until now. She is 26 and she has finally cemented a name for herself in the fashion designing world when everything and everyone she loves is taken from her.
Years ago, Nina's ancestors did something so awful to Jethro's family that now her family is indebted to them. Jethro must take Nina and do with her what he wants.
Jethro is what you expect in a dark romance but sometimes we get a glimpse of more but not for long. He knows he must make his family proud and he will stick with his plan.
I want to like Jethro but I'm still a little scared of him. I know Nila affects him and that there might be hope for her but I'm not sure how long it will take for him to realize she is not only a property to him.
Nila has great potential. She turns from a shy girl, coming out of her shell to fight back in her own way. I hope what she promises Jethro's dad, happens. He deserves it.
I'm intrigued about Kite's purpose in the story and I want to know more about the other Hawk brother, Kestrel.
I guess to know more I have to read the next one.
