Getting My Stalker on with Author Winter Austin - Interview

An unexpected perk of getting my stories published, one I’d never even considered, was getting to form friendships with awesome authors I’d otherwise only worship from the minimum distance required by legally binding restraining orders. 864 more words

The fourth and final book in Winter Austin’s Degree of Darkness series, RECKONING, released this week! Tomorrow I’m posting my review and Winter will be gifting a copy to one lucky commenter. But before we end the Week of Darkness, I give to you the author’s favorite scene from RECKONING: How much time was enough? Geesh, if Remy blew her off again, there might be some good, old-fashioned, Texas ass-whooping tonight. “You’re serious?” Marion Wilks’s question brought Cody out of her mental rant. Marion was Steve’s wife and co-owner of Ima Monster. “I’m so serious. You should see them eat. It’s like a freaking delicacy.” Breaking open the miniature-looking lobster, Cody pinched the softened shell over the tail until it split open and she removed the meat with her teeth. “And you’re married to one,” Marion said, then continued nibbling on her half-eaten corncob. “And he still grosses me out when he does it, too.” JC wiggled his way between Cody and the guy next to her and plucked a crawdad— or mudbug, as Remy was so fond of calling them— off the mound in front of her and the women. “Who grosses you out doing what?” he asked and cracked open the crawdad. Well, if she was going to get stood-up, again, she could have some fun. Cody grinned at the older woman and eyed JC wickedly. He hadn’t been able to stick around Houma after her wedding long enough to know the Cajuns’ little secret when eating their crawdads. And from the looks of the crowd gathered around the tables, not many in the cutting horse world knew about it, or cared to do it, either. She watched JC chew the meaty part from the tail. “You’ve got that evil gleam in your eyes.” He waved the empty tail at her. “What’s that all about?” Behind her, Marion snickered. “Oh, I was just tellin’ Marion how Remy and his family usually eat one of these things.” JC bit into another crawdad, waiting. Oh man, Cody felt particularly evil. She ran her tongue over her teeth and grinned. “They suck the heads.” JC stopped chewing, a greenish-whitish tinge appeared on his rugged face, bleaching out his suntan. “Say what?” “Yeah, they crack ’em open, suck the innards out and then eat the meat. Remy says all the good stuff is in the heads.” “I think I’m gonna be sick.” JC dropped the shell and staggered away. Marion burst out laughing. Cody faced the table and plucked a corncob out of the mound, her cheeks aching from the grin. “How is it that a boy who grew up eating prairie oysters is grossed out about sucking the heads on these things?” Marion asked, flopping a whole crawdad around. “Don’t ask me.” For more RECKONING: The honeymoon is over for Cody and Remy LeBeau. And Cody’s darkest secret haunts her, threatening to destroy their marriage. [caption id="attachment_1995" align="alignleft" width="324"]Click me - I'm a link! Click me - I'm a link![/caption] The brutal murder of a former judge sets in motion a domino effect of killings that all point back to Cody and her father. She suspects her father is hiding something sinister from her and Remy. But the closer she tries to get to her husband, the more she feels Remy drifting away from her, taken by his job and his stubborn instance that she’s not trusting him enough. Then her ex-boyfriend sends her a warning note, and with her world spinning out of control, Cody turns to the only man she does trust to help her and protect Remy. Her actions produce a result she’s not prepared to handle. Remy watches as his once happy marriage is pulled apart brick by brick. With threats closing in all sides, he’s forced to resort to his cold, secretive style that has kept him alive. If he’s to have any chance at succeeding, he must rely on the assistance of the last person on earth he wants to reach out to, even if the result continues to push Cody away. Death will have a reckoning, and for Cody and Remy it could mean the end of everything they’ve loved. Sensuality Level: Behind Closed Doors
