"I tried to play a game. I tried to wield deceit as perfectly as the Hawks. But when I thought I was winning, I wasn't. Jethro isn't what he seems - he's the master of duplicity. However, I refuse to let him annihilate me further."
Nila Weaver has grown from naïve seamstress to full-blown fighter. Every humdrum object is her arsenal, and is her greatest weapon of all.
She's paid the first debt. She'll probably pay more.
But she has no intention of letting the Hawks win.
Jethro Hawk has found more than a worthy adversary in Nila - he's found the woman who could destroy him. There's a fine line between hatred and love, and an even finer path between fear and respect.
The fate of his house rests on his shoulders, but no matter how much ice lives inside his heart, Nila flames too bright to be extinguished.

Oh My God - Amazing!!!!

Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

Definitely would recommend. This is an incredible series that is almost unbelievable but actually you can well imagine that this does happen behind the scenes in stately homes.

What was one of the most memorable moments of Second Debt?

Cannot tell in detail but suffice it to say that I had nail marks in my palms when the second debt was extracted! It was incredible. I was actually gasping and calling out for him not to...silly but it's powerful stuff!

What does Kylie C. Stewart and Will M. Watt bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you had only read the book?

They have both helped bring the characters to life as Jethro does sway between two diff personalities, one to please Nila and the other to appease his family. Will gets the tone of Jethro's voice just right with a suitable amount of disgust for the peasant Nila who should be considered beneath him. Great work.

If you made a film of this book, what would be the tag line be?

Would give the game away if I said but you'll know when you listen!!!!

Any additional comments?

Pepper Winters writes some really tough stuff. Romance that is difficult to take but none the less real. She is a master at what she does. Listen from the start and I promise you will not be disappointed with any of her work!! Cracking!!! :)

I'm sucked into the series...

If you could sum up Second Debt in three words, what would they be?

Dark, Beautiful, Intense

What about Kylie C. Stewart and Will M. Watt ’s performance did you like?

Will has such a way of bringing his character to life. You feel what he feels whether it is lighthearthed or dark you feel his emotions through his voice. Kylie is just a great in her performance, you can feel her fear and her hatred in her voice and you can also feel her emotions starting to bloom for Jethro.

I am loving Jethro a little bit more with each book. I'm hurting so much for both Jethro and Nila. It's incredibly bitter sweet.

I expected the book to get darker and darker, which it has, but I didn't see the end coming either.
