TROPES: Standalone, high spice, BDSM, MMF (one scene) then MF romance, no cheating, HEA, filthy, kinky, comes with a HIGH smexy warning…


“If you came here to get mauled, Ella, then…I’m very willing to bite.”

The night of my birthday looked as boring as the rest of my life. Sitting on my own, trying to avoid my insanely hot but horribly mean flatmate, all while waiting for him to leave so I could have a party for one…if you know what I mean.

But that was before I almost crashed on the way home when a big top rolled into town. Before I locked eyes with the hottest guy I’d ever seen swinging a sledgehammer in the rain. Before I read the flyer promoting the newly erected circus. A circus that wasn’t the usual garish carnival…oh, no…this one was most definitely not for children.

Not unless you counted bondage, fantasies, and one dirty night full of heinously deviant fun.

Only problem was…my flatmate decided to get his freak on too. He saw me as I agreed to spend the night with the owner of said depraved circus…and he made me an offer I couldn’t refuse.



I get to be owned by two men, not just one.

I get to live out my wildest fantasies and teach Nicholas Davis a lesson for all those stony scowls and disdainful glances he’s given me.

He can have me for one night.

He can make me crawl, beg, and take me in any way he chooses.

But he has to share.

That is his penance.

And I mean to make him suffer…

The Jewelry Box Series Book One: Ruby Tears

Spin off from Monsters in the Dark – Q’s brother


“Ten thousand dollars.

That pitiful sum changed my entire life.

It bought my entire life.

A measly ten thousand dollars, given to my boyfriend by a monster to fuck me.

He took it.

The monster took me.

And I never saw freedom again.”

I’m the bastard son of a monster.

My other half-blooded siblings have their own demons…but me?

I truly have the devil inside.

I try to be good.

To do my best to ignore the deep, dark, despicable urges.

But every day it gets harder.

I thought family could help.

I reached out to my infamous half-brother, Q, begging for his secrets to stay tamed.

Instead, he gave me an ultimatum to prove I’m not like our father.

Infiltrate The Jewelry Box: a trafficking ring of poor unfortunate souls, kill the Master Jeweler, free the Jewels, and don’t lose my rotten soul while trying.

Only problem is…my initiation into this exclusive club is earning a Jewel all of my own.

She sparkles like diamonds, bleeds like rubies, and bruises as deep as emeralds.

She’s mine to break.

I can’t refuse.

If I want to prove to my half-brother that I’m not like our sire, I have to sink into urges I’ve always fought, plunge into madness, and lose myself so deeply into sin that the only one who will be breaking is me.

  1. Hi Pepper,
    Just wanted to check and see if there was a release scheduled for the next Indebted book? I’m waiting on pins and needles. I LOVE all your books, but this series is my favorite. I read all three in a week!

  2. Just finished reading the Monsters in the Dark Series which I loved! What is the possibility of Suzette and Franco’s story being written?

  3. I found the indebted series through a Kobo recommendation. They’re not the genre of book I would usually read, but WOW! I’ve read all of them so far and I find myself randomly wondering what will happen next. I’m desperate to find out what happens to poor Nila and Jethro.
    By far one of the best set of books I’ve read. Keep up the amazing writing.

  4. Hi Pepper,
    I read Monsters in the Dark series last year and LOVED it! I have to say the Indebted series is my absolute favorite! I read all three in a week. When is book four coming??? I can’t wait, is there a specific date locked in yet?

  5. Hello! I’ll be very outright in saying I’ve only just recently started reading your books. And I can’t believe I’ve gone this long without them. I started reading the Indebted books (up to the third one now) and I am absolutely enthralled. I love the way you write and the balance you have between darkness and romance. I wasted no time in finding out your others and now have a list I’m looking forward to getting through. While I can’t wait to devour Indebted 3 I’m also not looking forward to it because I have to wait for Nila and Jethro! It’s going to be so painful! Thank you so much for your books, I love them and look forward to everything else you do!!!

  6. Hi Pepper! I just finished the Indebted series and I cannot WAIT until the 4th books becomes available. It says on here the release date is March/April 2015. Is that still accurate? I sure hope so!

  7. Oh my gosh!!! I whizzed through the Indebited books and have waited the agonising 3 weeks for the next release….. I lie…. It wasn’t agonising at all, as I loved Indebited so much, I picked up the Monsters in the Dark series….. Again …. An AMAZING series.! I can only say thank you for giving us these wonderfully written beautiful characters that I have become obsessed with and fell in love with. Now I have a few more weeks to fill before the Indebited release soooo will gladly fill this time with another of piece of your work. Thank you again and looking forward to getting back to Nila and Jethro

  8. Stumbled across Monsters in the Dark series by accident….but OH MY GOSH…what a story of dark love between Q and Tess….Q stole my heart! I couldn’t read fast enough! The most dark erotic wild read I have ever read…and I’m just in awe. I don’t know if I’ll ever find another story to affect me the way this one did…. I will definitely look for more of your work!

  9. I hate to admit this but i passed up indebted series many times before I gave it a go. I’m so glad I did. I can’t tell you how many times I cringed while reading it but then a few pages later felt so much for these characters. You have a way to make it so very dark yet your writing pulls us back in. I wondered if the Monsters in the Dark series would have that same edge as Indebted and it did. I never thought I would like the dark romance stories but I do thanks so much!! Can’t wait for Indebted 4

  10. Wow, Third Debt! But, Fourth Debt, August? Like, AUGUST?! Of course, I’ll wait. And what is with Super Secret Pepper Project? It will be in this year, right? Can you share some teasers, maybe Saffron, or this Secret Projeckt? Love your books, and I wish I live in USA than I would meet you.
    Thank you!

    1. It will come around fairly quick–plus you get to have more of Killian who you met in Third Debt 🙂 <3 The super secret project is still under wraps, but I'll be doing a lot of teasers for Ruin and Rule starting soon!! xxxxx

  11. I can’t lie!!!! I am soooo soooo upset!!! Poor Jethro and Kes!!! I an so hurt that they are gone!!! How can this happen!!!!

  12. I can’t wait! And book about Killian – amazing name – will be romance and dark (‘couse MC), or only romance? And his opinion in TD was incredible!

  13. I began reading your books only a month ago (March 2015) when I found the first book of the Indebted series. I read the book in 3 hours. I downloaded the others and read them within the next week! I couldn’t put them down! When I saw the email for Indebeted 4 being downloaded this past Thursday, I couldn’t wait to get home from work to read! I finished it FRIDAY!! I was left speechless!!! I have all types of questions/theories in my head…especially about Jethro (but I won’t spoil it for anyone who hasn’t read by asking them now). I’m sad that August is so far away…

  14. Hi Pepper

    I have a serious book hangover after reading your books!!! Im struggling to find books that match up to yours. Keep up the good work!

  15. Loved the Indebted series! I have had the pleasure of reading all 4 in 3 days….now for the long wait until August. Any idea when #6 might be ready?:) Can’t wait…keep up the great work!

  16. I love the monster in the dark series..i was definitely nervous to start a book on a human trafficking subject..but i have to say that you turned a horrible subject into something so incredibly pure loving an raw an heartbreaking all at once..i cried a few times an got crazy agree also..but this love story is something ill never forget..id say id love to be Tess an feel the crazy love they have but lets be honest what she went through id never servive but it was a great story..thanks so much..i definitely want to read more of there story..hope to soon..

  17. Is August 11th the confirmed release date for Fourth Debt? That’s gonna be the longest wait we’ve had between these books 🙁

  18. I first started reading monsters in the dark out of curiosity, I couldn’t see how a book about that subject could be enjoyable. There were times my stomach turned and times my eyes welled up, but it was beautifully written and such a good story. Love how you turned a subject like human trafficking into such a beautiful story. I just burned through debt inheritance, and came on to check when the new one was out. I’m hooked now, amazing books fantastic writer!

  19. Hai Pepper, first I want to thank you for so many fantastic reading hours. I just finished “Monster in the Dark” and 4 books of Debt Inheritance. Wow, both stories are really intriguing and the characters completely awesome. Normally I don’t like cliffhangers, they feel more like cliffbangers to me, haha but in this case the waiting is worth it. It is a shame though we have to wait for the 11th of August for the 5th book, but in the meantime I will read Forbidden Flaws and Destroyed. Thanks again, greetz from a Dutch lady.

  20. Hi, Pepper

    I just wanted to thank from the bottom of my heart because you gave me everything I always wanted to read in a book ( love, romance , twisted situations etc.) I have just recently finished reading the trilogy of the Monsters In The Dark . I fell inlove with Quincy. You where right to warn your readers that we will fell for him from the very beginning . He was an amazing, strong character as was Tess. I TRULY LOVED THEIR STORY AND I HOPE YOU WILL WRITE A FOUTH BOOK ?? …. telling us more of what have happened to our beloved characters since the third book. I am looking foward to what else you are going to writeor what you have in mind for your later projects. I have also read the ENDEBTED BOOK SERIESyou have also done an incredible job introducing once again an amazingly love,twisting story.

    Thank you in advance that you put done you effort and your thought to write such stories that have changed our lives in every possible way and you made me believe that there might be someone out there for me to fall in lve with and not be in my loneliness for an eternity.

I am sorry I sound demanding but the excerpt was just soooooooo good that I was hooked and as award of reading the excerpt all I have got is endless waiting . So please throw us a bone or something lol.

  22. Hi Pepper,
    I’m french and I just finished the Indebted series (1 to 4th) and I’m so impatient to be in August 2015 because I cannot WAIT so long until the 5th books becomes available (and not anymore for the last one). I want to thank you (even if these books are not translated in french) because I have really enjoyed these books (I have cried (in the 3rd), be scared and sometimes I couldn’t eat somethings …) but really AMAZING, I really appreciate your writing and just this story…Thank you so much for your books (I’ve already bought the monster in the dark series that I could read after that)…sorry for my french writing…

  23. Indebted Series is pure genius, should be a movie. You have a writing gift and have easily become my favorite author.

  24. I am completed in love with your books…. I just cannot wait for the next two books in the Indebted series… I am completed hooked and impatient for them. Monsters in the dark the first series written by you that I read. I completely love the emotional roller coaster ride you put your readers through. It only heightens each and every emotion and feeling… Keep up the amazing work.. I am eagerly waiting for more works of art!

  25. I AM IN LOVE WITH THE INDEBTED SERIES!! I can’t get over it!! I’m obsessed. You are an amazing writer. I never want it to stop!! How many are there going to be?! Please can there be alot more?!

  26. Hi just finished Ruin & Rule I loved it (as I love all your books) I am sure I read book 2 isn’t out until 2016 please tell me I am mistaken I can’t wait that long.

  27. I have read all your books to date. Can’t wait for August for Indebited. I am hooked.I loved the intensity of your characters as well as their dark side.PLEASE keep writing.

  28. when is next pure corruption book coming out? im having withdrawals from killian. I think i read about him in another book but can.t find it help me out here!!

  29. Hi pepper I just finished reading the indebted series and I can’t wait for the indebted series #5 & #6. I can’t wait what will happen with Nila and jethro. I’m hoping she won’t be rape by Daniel because it would be so heartbreaking..😩 Anway I really love your books!! Your are amazing and a brilliant author!!

  30. I love your books! They are amazing! I can’t wait to read the fourth debt! There are so many questions like: Did jethro die? Or was it staged and he was only knocked unconscious with something and the bullet was actually a dart with a red die or something and he was going to wake up and find himself in the dungeon thing in the basement? Does his brother survive? Does Daniel die? Does Cut die? Does Bonnie die? Does Vaughn die? If they do die, how do they die? Does Nila become pregnant? Do Nila and Jethro get married? What about the invitation for the fashion people to come and see the dress, they would want to see jethro? What about Nila’s dad? DOES NILA WEAVER AND JETHRO HAWK FINALLY GET THERE HAPPILY EVER AFTER?!!!!!!!

  31. I just finished Ruin & Rule… is it really true the next book won’t be out until 2016? Wow, that will be a tough one to wait for! I absolutely LOVE all of your books! Thanks for writing such captivating stories!

  32. Love all you books I’m addicted totally addicted to the books can’t waits for the other ones please hurry up 😂😂😝😝😝

  33. hello pepper, i have just finished the Ruin & Rule which is fabulous by the way and was wondering when the next was coming out in this series and how many books in total will there be?

  34. hello pepper,
    I am from India and i read your Indebted series and i fell in love with Nila and Jethro’s love story. i want them to have a happy ending and not the one i am thinking will happen. please tell me that Jethro doesn’t die because if he does i will be devastated. I am in love with your writing i have even read the Masters in the Dark series. It is also amazing but its the Indebted series that have captured my heart please tell me that the last two books ill be available as soon as possible i want to read them ( because even i am in love with Jethro ). please release the last two installments asap.
    love yaa

  35. Loved meeting you in NY. cannot wait for your upcoming releases. I’ve pre ordered everything…I need to continue reading. Keep on writing, Pepper…

  36. Just finished reading Ruin and Rule…. Probably one of the best books Ive read in a while!! The only bad thing is the end, the cliffhanger! GAH!! When will the 2nd book to this be released? Anytime soon, hopefully? This book sucked me and I loved how it constantly grabbed my attention. I couldnt put it down. Im am dying in anticipation to continue reading Kill and Chloe’s story… epic love, ultimate betrayal, the passion, and all the other key elements that tie together throughout the book. Pardon my french, but it was so fucking good!!

  37. Just finished reading ruin and rule and just when I think this amazing author can no longer surprise me she always foes. Please tell me it’s not going to be to long for the second book my heart can’t handle the suspense

  38. I just finished reading indebted #4 please tell me it was a dream or by some miercial Jethro Comes back, if not I hope, Nila and her brother Vaughn kills the whole family, and let Nila be pregnant.


  40. I LOVE LOV LOVE the Indebted series!! 😍😍 just finished book 5. Read them all in four days. Can’t wait for the final debt. I am now a new Pepper Winters fan! Seeing as I have a while to wait for the last book in the series I am going to read the rest of your books. I’m sure I won’t be disappointed. Thank you💕
    Oh and p.s. I’m going to make sure my sisters read them too😉

  41. Pepper, I don’t know how you do it! Each book is more fabulous than your last. I can’t tell you how I’m “jonesing” for the next release. Waiting for the final installment of Jethro and Nila’s journey, I feel like a “crack-whore” waiting for her next fix. The same goes for Sin and Suffer and the Monsters in the Dark novella! The only one I’m just anticipating is Forbidden Flaws. Will this be a “stand alone” or will I have to suffer through (even though it’s worth it) waiting for answers to cliff-hangers in sequels? Either way, I’m a fan of everything you do. Keep them coming, PLEASE!
