Just wanted to let you know that I’m hard at work on my story for Seven Deadly Sins, the bundle of hot stories that releases on August 13. Yes that one! The one with my good friend Morgan Black, Clarissa Wild, LP Dover, Ella James, Roxie Elms, and Melissa Andrea.
My story is a “prequel” to The Cage Sessions.
It’s a first-person story told from Damien himself, all about what happened with the mystery girl that makes him sing Nickelback’s Far Away so passionately.
And am I ever having a BLAST writing it!
Damien is not yet the Damien we know. He’s a bit more full of himself, not yet at the point where he wants to help others. He’s still all about Damien. Which makes him a little myopic when it comes to M********a, the girl who rocks his world like a punch to his face.
It’s fun to step back four years. Jasmine isn’t even Jasmine yet. She’s Jason Everton. Which has been fun to write. We also get to meet icy cold Anna Price, Damien’s old manager who he fired… and Trent Axel, Eon Sphinx’s lead guitarist who is so messed up on drugs he’s not sure what planet he’s on.
I know some of you are a little disappointed that nothing emotionally powerful has happened yet between Damien and Annika. But realize there is a good reason for that. Annika has been severely blocked up for years, with a strong sexuality that needs to get out.
Damien realizes this and is encouraging her to do things wayyyyyyy outside the norm… such as Isabella & Jasmine. I know it seems like Annika is hooking up with anybody and everybody but Damien. And I know it seems like she’s a lesbian because all she’s hooked up with so far is girls.
But she’s passing through a “rite” of sorts that she needs to get through before she can live in Damien’s world.
Add to that the fact that Damien needs time to really let go of what happened four years ago, allowing Annika in. Whenever she is around, he shuts down his emotions because he knows he is so vulnerable to intelligence and sexiness all in one package.
Maybe I haven’t made that clear in their exchanges, but Annika is very smart. (Yeah, now that I look back, I really see that I should have emphasized Annika’s intelligence more. Bad author… bad author!) But it will come out, especially when she’s given a “scoop” to research and gets to put all her brain skills on display.
Damien needs a woman who is on his level… who swears like a truck driver, is a deviant firebrand in bed, and who can quote Ralph Waldo Emerson right along with him. He knows Annika is this girl, but he hasn’t let go of M********a yet.
Here are some teases for Immoral: The Cage Sessions Book 4:
- Damien takes Annika to his private home in South America. He’s only shown it to one other person. Not even Jasmine knows about it.
- A mysterious phone call sets Annika on a mission to investigate a strange unsolved murder from four years ago.
- Annika gets her own apartment.
- Damien shares the basic details of what happened four years ago with M********a.
I love writing! This is so fun.
P.S. I’m shooting for July 22 for Immoral, fingers crossed. Easy tiger, I’m writing two stories at once here! Lol.
