“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…

A few reviews so far:

  • 5 Stars Third Debt was just mind-boggling and blowing. I mean, what can’t NOT happen? Pepper Winters just seems to go there right when and where you don’t expect it to. –-Kawehi Reviews
  • 5 Stars I am just beyond amazed on how good this book was. Hell..the whole series is just amazeballs and if you haven’t read them, you are so missing out!! Missing out on such an original storyline, beautiful distinctive characters, and I am just so completely enthralled by Pepper. —Mommy is a Book Whore
  • 5 Stars Pepper never fails to put my emotions right on edge… Verging from love/hate happiness/heartbreak, tears of laughter/sadness.., she does it again… Keeps me on the edge of my seat from first page to the last! 5stars just don’t give it justice… My reviews don’t give it justice but once you have read it you will understand why I find it difficult to articulate myself well other than OMFG!! —Tamsin, Goodreads

fourth temp

I’ll make this post while ducking for cover. Previously, I’d said Fourth Debt would be releasing around May / June. I’m going to be completely transparent here, so you can understand the predicament I’m in:

Back in July last year, I signed a publishing deal with Hachette to release two books traditionally. This deal meant larger exposure for my work in bookstores and paperbacks, the chance to work with large company editors, and to sample the other side of publishing. I can honestly say I love dealing with the amazing people at Hachette and am very lucky to be able to release both traditionally and self-publish. However, going traditional does mean I am bound to certain clauses and signed a contract agreeing to a non-compete term. What that means is I must work with my publisher to decide on release dates for my self-publishing titles so as not to cause averse affects on my traditionally published work. Normally, they require six months either side (which for someone like me who releases every 2-3 months is suicide.) Luckily, Hachette understood this and have been very flexible with me. We have recently been in discussions about Fourth Debt’s release and have come up with the following solution:


Grand Central (Hachette) will be releasing Ruin & Rule from me in July. Originally, this book was due out on the 28th July. However, because I’m doing a two month long signing tour starting on the 6th July, they’ve been beyond amazing and brought the release forward to coincide with signing events so the book is available to everyone on those dates. So, Ruin & Rule is almost a month early and releasing on the 7th July 2015.


Unfortunately, with good news comes the bad. Because this is a new book from me, Grand Central have asked me to give a few weeks break between my releases, which means my original intention to release Fourth Debt in June is no longer permitted (as it’s too soon to Ruin & Rule’s release in early July) I was told to release Fourth Debt early to mid May, which was an insane task as these books are long of over 70,000 words or more. (Third Debt is 100,000 words). Not to mention I’ve been sick for the past two weeks and general lifeness which means I’m behind. If I couldn’t make early May, my next alternative was late September, which is too far away. We have since been in talks about a new date and have come to a conclusion:

Fourth Debt has had to be rescheduled. I don’t like it just as much as you, HOWEVER, I have been able to create the pre-order links NOW on ALL platforms, so at least you can pre-order and forget until it shows up on your device. And in the meantime, Ruin & Rule has been brought forward to ensure there is only a few weeks between my releases, just like normal.


11th AUGUST 2015

Pre-order links are:

I know it feels as if Fourth Debt is ages away, but the good news is Ruin & Rule is only nine weeks from being on bookshelves as well as on ebook. You’ll be able to spot the cover in Wallmart, Target, and other retailers very soon!

I can’t thank you all enough for loving the Indebted Series so much and for supporting my crazy stories. The great news is Final Debt will still be released on its approximate date, so the last two books in the Indebted Series won’t be far apart.

Thank you so much and happy reading!!!!!




  1. I am so happy to have Third Debt,but….the wait for Fourth Debt is going to kill me. I understand the reasons behind the delay,though and i guess i’ll just have to be patient. Meanwhile,i am very glad Ruin and Rule is coming soon to keep me going

  2. But then, what about Je Suis à Toi and Fatal Flaws? When are they going to be released? Because every book you write is just so good, it’s hard waiting so long for more 😀 😀

      1. Like it? Loved it! Broke my heart to see Nila’s and Jethro’s struggling in all that darkness and the end….damn! This is going to be such a long wait

  3. Ugh! Just finished the 3rd debt!! So many questions, Idk if I can wait until August!!! My heart broke in two at the end of this one!!! 😵

  4. Pepper > Wish you a healthy spring. Thank you for your amazing for work.. it contributes to my lack of sleep 🙂

  5. This wait is going to kill me…. the end…. really?!?! Your writing is so great! You really suck us in and make us feel all of the crazy emotions. Happy that you are getting to release with the big publication as well though. You really deserve it!

  6. I’ve read thirs debt now and I truly can’t wait for fourth debt you’ve left it on a huge cliff hanger my nights at work will be extremely dull from now on but have already preordered the next two books look forward to more reading x

  7. OMG I just finished the third debt and now I’m on the edge of my seat wanting to know whats next. Aug 11th seems so far away but I will be patient but I was wondering when the final debt is being released?

  8. Dear Pepper,

    Third Debt tore me every which way!. As previously stated, the Indebted series is my first foray into dark reads and it has been a very wild ride. While waiting for Third Debt i picked up another dark series by another author.. read all 5 in 2 weeks.. it just didn’t do a thing for me. I swallowed Third Debt in a day and a half and woah, are you kidding me? Did that seriously happen in the end?? That thing that i just do not believe happened and insist that that’s not the end of that character and hopefully characters??!

    Please be advised that because of you i’m working on a time machine because waiting till June for Fourth Debt was going to be hard enough but waiting till August is going to kill me so… i’m going to the future to get my book (s) so there!

  9. Oh i forgot.. i picked up all the Tess books, can’t wait to delve. You are such an amazing author…i think i’m addicted to your work!

  10. Your books are just amazing. We have all fallen in love with your books and it is just sheer torture that we have to wait so long for the releases. Please try to release the books faster. Your fans can’t handle the waiting anymore.
