    Retribution is the second book by Winter Austin that I¿ve been f

    Retribution is the second book by Winter Austin that I’ve been fortunate to read. If you haven’t read the first book, Relentless, I would recommend that you do. Otherwise, you will miss a good story and depth of understanding in this second installment of the Degrees of Darkness series. 
    Retribution continues the story of Remy and Cody. I love this story. It’s believable, logical, and gripping. Here’s a quote from the book “Fear coiled in the pit of her gut, and its venom slithered through her veins.”  I still get chills read this line. 


    The characters are deeper. Cody is struggling what happened to her in Relentless (don’t want to give away any spoilers in this or the previous book) which is realistic instead of having her swoon into the hero’s arms. Remy is pursued by his past and the dangers draw into a dramatic conclusion with his and Cody’s life pitted against a professional assasin.
    This is a must read for anyone who loves romantic suspense, mystery, contemporary romance, or a thrilling read that will have you savoring every page.

    Retribution the second book in the Degrees of Darkness series, h

    Retribution the second book in the Degrees of Darkness series, has an independent story arc that begins and ends within its own pages while building upon the larger arc that began in Book One and won't conclude until the end of Book Four. The independent story does make it possible to read just this book but buh-leive me you want to read the first book too! In Retribution we get to see more of the hero and heroine's individual back stories as well as the further development of their romance. Secondary characters are expanded and oh my, there is voodoo, murder most foul, sins of his past, and sadly, of hers. In the first book we got to meet the hero and heroine, in this one we get to KNOW them, a taste of what drives them and the darkness they both run from.

    Once again, Winter Austin tells one hell of a romantic suspense.

    The cover clearly foreshadows that Retribution is going to burn the house down. And man does it. I can't wait for the next book!

     This is the second installment in the Degrees of Darkness serie

     This is the second installment in the Degrees of Darkness series, starring Cajun detective Remy LeBeau and
     barrel racer Cody Lewis. They're making progress, but so many secrets still stand in the way of their happily ever
     after.

    You can read this one on its own, but you'll be missing a lot of the layers that make it so awesome. As usual
     Remy has more secrets than the CIA, and they've already taken people he loves. The secrets are pushing Cody
     away at a time when she needs Remy more than ever. Her descent into an alcoholic binge is particularly well
     done and doesn't pull any punches.

    But what comes after that descent, wow! You have to read it to find out why there's a burning house on the cover,
     and who the house belongs to. Also, if you have a crush developing on Remy's partner, Heath Anderson, there's
    plenty of fuel to turn that crush into a raging swoon.
