Today I have Diane Thorne visiting to talk about her series, Sexy & Damned. Check out more info about this sexy series in this post and look for the review of The Complicated Stripper coming soon!
~A Word from Diane Thorne~
A damned stripper trying to save her soul.
The main character in my Sexy & Damned series is a stripper. No, the books are not about stripping, nor do they have much stripping. In fact, you won’t find a strip scene until book #2.
The books are about the stripper, how she came to be what she is, how she survives, and how she’s trying to save her soul from an eternity in Hell. She’s in a fucked up world full of blood and violence. After her parents died, the State separated her and her siblings into foster homes. She ran away and planned to work so she could get custody of her brother and sister. She discovered stripping and supernatural creatures paid the best. Sadly, those high paying customers (vampires) used and abused her. She’d spent enough time in the hospital drained to the point of death that her heart turned cold. She wanted to protect herself.
A demon named Murdock stepped into her life and offered a deal. He could give her vampire strength and abilities in exchange for her soul. Plus, she’d have to bring people to him when he asks. Since she wanted to continue walking the earth, she took the deal. Hence, sexy and damned.
She soon discovered the tricky demon made her a bit different from a regular vampire. Sure, she got vampire strength and immortality, but her survival doesn’t depend on human blood.
As time passes, her goal of trying to help her siblings fades. She’s a stripper in a dark world. Survival is top priority. When Greger finds her and offers a way to help, she’s intrigued. After all, he has a valuable source for her survival. By the end of the Deadly Stripper, she discovers a way to save her soul.
Each book contains a challenge she must accomplish to earn points that will build a defense case for her when the time comes for her soul to be judged. Because she is similar to a vampire, she has their carnal craving. She has to learn control. Fortunately, there is a friend who can help. Although Jay is human, he is a lover Celee can’t ignore. As it turns out, he loves her even though she took him to Murdock. He doesn’t blame her for the deal he made with the demon as he made it with his own free will. But Celee is plagued with guilt, which makes for a complex relationship. Heartbreak is inevitable.
I plan for another two books in the series. Maybe more later. The plot is simple, survive and find a way to avoid eternal damnation. Sounds easy, but of course, easier said than done for Celee.
Care to venture into a dark and complicated world of a sexy and damned stripper?
Life is beyond complicated for Celee Spence. Tasked by both a demon and an angel, she must capture two teenagers without sending anyone who interferes to their grave. Werewolves and gun-toting gang members impede her job. Adding to her challenges, she must learn to control her raging hormones after she feeds, and her vampire donor seems unwilling to help. He suggests she seek out her friend, Jay, a singer who is pursuing his dream of fame. Can a human lover help her manage her carnal appetite?
He pushed open the door to the women’s facilities and pulled her inside.
“Jay, we need to talk.”
He opened the door to the handicap stall and jerked Celee into it.
She stood next to the wall, bewildered, while he turned the lock. “Please tell me you didn’t drag me here to fuck me. What am I now, your bathroom call girl?”
He met her gaze and took hold of her wrists. “You’re not my call girl. I never thought you were. But I am going to fuck you because you’re the one I want.”
He raised her wrists and backed her against the wall. Her ass bumped a railing while the front of their bodies collided. Pinning her arms above her, he covered her mouth with his and thrust his tongue deep inside.
Her body lit up like a flame as their tongues mingled in a feverish kiss. She could’ve resisted, could’ve used her vampire strength to move her arms and push him back, but she enjoyed his fiery passion and how he strived to please her. He wedged between her legs and rubbed his groin against her. From the hardness of his cock to the greedy kiss, she gave up her goal. Talking could wait. Feeling him deep inside her couldn’t.
He raised her arms higher above her head, then held one over the other. Clearly, he wanted to control her, hold her in place while he had his way. She’d let him because she knew it excited him, made him want to touch, nip, and lick every bit of her. He placed his free hand on the side of her face, his thumb close to her lips.
“I want you, Celee. I’m so fucking hard right now.” He kept his mouth so close she could feel his breath.
“Show me, Jay.” She kissed him. “Show me you want me.”
