Diane Thorne's Sexy & Damned Series (Guest Post/Giveaway)

Today I would like to give a warm welcome back to author, Diane Thorne, who is joining us with her series, Sexy & Damned!


The difficulties of a stripper

Stripping is difficult. Did you know that? I don't speak from experience. I have not done any pole dancing, but I determined the extra curricular activity was difficult from the research I conducted when I had to write a stripping scene.

My research involved reading articles and watching videos. I discovered routines are short and the dancers are constantly in motion. There may be breaks, then the stripper returns for another routine. Imagine a woman dressed in next to nothing and dancing with five-inch heels. Leg and arm strength is essential, among flexibility and other things. A pole dancer must have these abilities. Role playing or acting is also important. It's a show, a hot and steamy show to lure men to spend their money. No touching is permitted. This basic information helped me develop my stripping scene in book #2. Using my imagination, I added a few details and extended the dance show. It is fiction after all.

Stripping is not the theme of the books, but it is part of the way my character, Celee, survives in her fucked up world. 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 and became sexy and damned.

Because I felt it was important for the reader to get to know my character, her past, how she came to be what she is, etc., I didn't put a stripping scene in The Deadly Stripper. So, I put her dance act in The Complicated Stripper. Will there be more stripping scenes? Well, they take up a lot of space and you get the point. I don't want to bore readers, so odds are likely I would keep any strip show short, such as bringing readers in at the end of a routine.

Care to venture into a dark and complicated world of a sexy and damned stripper?

EXCERPT:


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.
"We will…later."
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."

He suggests she seek out her friend, Jay, a singer who ispursuing his dream of fame. Can a human lover help her manage her carnal appetite?

EXCERPT:
A click from within her apartment drew her attention to the hallway. The door squealed
lightly as someone opened and closed it. Then footsteps patted onto her hard floor. They stopped.
No surprise, her visitor didn't have a heartbeat.
Naked and smiling, she strolled from the bathroom and down the hall. Greger's gaze met
hers the minute she turned the corner. He held his coat and tossed it on the recliner as she passed
him and proceeded to the kitchen without pausing. When she reached the refrigerator, she came
to a halt and opened the door.
"Did you talk to the pastor?" she asked as she claimed a bottle of water from her fridge.
She heard his footsteps moving closer. The sound of zipper prompted her to raise a brow.
Gazing out the small window above the sink, she lifted the bottle and dragged it across her
forehead. The cold plastic did little to cool her heated temperature, but it sure felt good on her
skin.
The jerk of her head back took her by surprise. She dropped the bottle and it thudded
when it landed in the sink. Sharp fangs grazed over her neck. In a mere second, her nipples
hardened and her heart fluttered.
"Do you think you are the only one starving?" He reached around to her front and slid his
digits into her pussy. "I have needs too."
He pinned her against the counter with his cock touching her back. The desire burning
within her raged like a wild fire as he fucked her with his fingers.
"Spread your legs."
The words were soft in her ears but very deep and demanding. She obeyed his command,
and he brushed his knees against her inner thighs. Teasing her more, he withdrew his fingers
from her slick cunt and rubbed them over her clit. Her body quivered inside, wanting more.
"Fuck me, Greger."
His hand disappeared, then she felt the tip of his cock touch her pussy. "I intend to."

Interesting blend of genres. UF is not known for romance or eroticism, but since I like both, it sounds like a great series.
