Interview with Terri L. Austin, Author of His Every Need and Giveaway

 

[Manga Maniac Cafe] Good morning, Terri!  Welcome to the MMC!

[Terri L Austin] Hi! Thanks so much for having me on today. It’s a pleasure to be here.

[Manga Maniac Cafe] Describe yourself in five words or less.

[Terri L Austin] Funny. Inappropriate. Hello Kitty lover.

[Manga Maniac Cafe] Can you tell us a little about His Every Need?

[Terri L Austin] Allie Campbell is determined to take care of her family, no matter the cost. But when her father loses their home to British tycoon Trevor Blake, Allie finds herself forced to plead for more time to pay off the loan…and if she has to use her own body as collateral, then so be it.

Trevor isn’t moved by Allie’s story. But when Allie impulsively offers to do anything to keep the house, he’s intrigued enough to raise the stakes: for the next two months, she must cater to his every need, no matter how depraved. To his amazement, she agrees.

Allie has no intention of enjoying her time with the arrogant, domineering Brit, but it doesn’t take long before he’s got her aching for his touch-and he’ll do whatever it takes to make her beg…

[Manga Maniac Cafe]  Can you share your favorite scene?

[Terri L Austin] After Allie and Trevor have a terrible argument, neither one will apologize or back down. Things escalate from there and that scene in the hotel room makes my heart pound every time I read it. They’re pushing each other’s buttons like crazy, and it’s heart-wrenching.

[Manga Maniac Cafe] What gave you the most trouble with the story?

[Terri L Austin] I always grapple with the ending. First of all, I never want to leave the characters behind. I know their story is over, but I find myself hesitant to say goodbye. And finding that perfect final line can be tricky.

[Manga Maniac Cafe] What’s one thing you won’t leave home without?

[Terri L Austin] A book. Or my Kindle. I need reading material at all times!

[Manga Maniac Cafe] Name three things on your desk right now.

[Terri L Austin] A stone Dracula book end. A Hello Kitty Pez dispenser. A leg lamp (from A Christmas Story) nightlight.

[Manga Maniac Cafe] What’s your favorite snack when you’re working on a deadline?

[Terri L Austin] Goldfish crackers. My go-to stress food.

[Manga Maniac Cafe] If you could trade places with anyone for just one day, who would you be?

[Terri L Austin] Kate Middleton. I’d want to live like a royal for a day—yet still retain the common touch, you know.

[Manga Maniac Cafe] You have been granted the use of one superpower for one week.  Which power would you choose, and what would you do with it?

[Terri L Austin] Without a doubt, teleportation. I’d visit all the places on my bucket list and I wouldn’t get jetlag. Win-win!

[Manga Maniac Cafe] What are some books that you enjoyed recently?

[Terri L Austin] I’ve been reading Kresley Cole’s young adult series, The Arcana Chronicles. I’ve also been waiting for the next Karen Marie Moning book to be released, so I plan on re-reading Iced soon to get ready for the next installment.

[Manga Maniac Cafe] Thank you!

His Every Need, the first book in The Beauty and the Brit series, is available from Sourcebooks August 5, 2014.

Allie Campbell is determined to take care of her family, no matter the cost. But when her father loses their home to British tycoon Trevor Blake, Allie finds herself forced to plead for more time to pay off the loan…and if she has to use her own body as collateral, then so be it.

Trevor isn’t moved by Allie’s story. But when Allie impulsively offers to do anything to keep the house, he’s intrigued enough to raise the stakes: for the next two months, she must cater to his every need, no matter how depraved. To his amazement, she agrees.

Allie has no intention of enjoying her time with the arrogant, domineering Brit, but it doesn’t take long before he’s got her aching for his touch-and he’ll do whatever it takes to make her beg…

“Austin, clearly enjoying a change of pace from her more comedic Rose Strickland mystery series, infuses her characters with relatable problems and hot chemistry that will keep readers turning pages.”—Publishers Weekly

“…this is an engaging work on a number of levels—the sum total is a novel that is unique, erotic and passionate.”—RT Book Reviews, 4 ½ Stars, Top Pick!

    Hi Terri: I have truly enjoyed every book of yours that I have read and I just have to tell you how I smile every time I see the greeting of Hello Kittens. It just makes me fell all warm and fuzzy. :)

    One question: how come Gold fish crackers and not nice salty potato chips as your favorite snack? They are probably fewer calories than chips however.

    Keep up the great writing and what a nice giveaway you have going. Enjoyed the interview.

    Sincerely,
    Cynthia E. Blain
