The Friday 56 is a weekly bookish meme, hosted over at Freda’s Voice.
All you have to do is
*Grab a book, any book.
*Turn to page 56 or 56% in your eReader (If you have to improvise, that’s ok.)
*Find any sentence, (or few, just don’t spoil it)
*Head over to Freda’s Voice and add your post into Linky. (The post url, not your blog)
56% of First Debt (Indebted #2)
When I tried half-heartedly and swallowed a moan of agony, Jethro moved closer.”Let me help.”
He hovered, his scent of woods and leather scrambling my heart until I suffered a bad case of arrhythmia.
He didn’t touch me, only waited. He’s waiting for your permission – transferring power back to you.
I frowned. What tricks was he playing? Who was this silent attentive man, and what the hell happened to the bastard I wanted to murder?
First Debt (Indebted #2) by Pepper Winters
“You say I’ll never own you. If I win—you willingly give me that right. You sign not only the debt agreement, but another—one that makes me your master until your last breath is taken. You do that, and I’ll give you this.”
Nila Weaver’s family is indebted. Stolen, taken, and bound not by monsters but by an agreement written over six hundred years ago, she has no way out.
She belongs to Jethro as much as she denies it.
Jethro Hawk’s patience is running out. His inheritance gift tests, challenges, and surprises him—and not in good ways. He hasn’t leashed her but he thinks he might’ve found a way to bind her forever.
Debts are mounting. Payment waiting.
