Book Description:

Mortal women surrender to Dante’s seductions. He is a Drone, an immortal who feeds off their lifeforce energy—the chi that keeps his kind alive. When his dimension is on the edge of destruction, Dante must seek the help of one special woman.

Haley Moore is a Sha Warrior—a mortal with excess lifeforce energy. She has always had a strong attraction to Dante and when they meet again he thinks luck is on his side because his quota of chi energy would be obtained after one scorching scene with this mortal. But the problem is that he is overwhelmingly attracted to her and once with this woman won’t be enough.

Haley tries to draw out the man buried deep within the demon. Their fierce, undeniable passion unravels his plans and threatens her life. Can Dante bear to abandon her when he leaves Earth forever? Dante will have to choose whether to return to his world or to give up his immortality and share his future with Haley.

The Interview:

1. How did the story line for Damned and Defiant come into being?

Dante started out as the bad guy in Book one, Desert of the Damned and
a reader emailed me asking if he would find love in the end. I hadn’t
intended on him becoming the hero in the series but that email gave me
an idea for an interesting twist to the story arc. He wasn’t the truly
evil one, Gwyllain, the demoness was. Dante showed some signs of being
redeemable. He was part human and did have a few ‘good’ moments in the

2. What is your favorite thing about the book?

 Both Haley the heroine and Dante the hero make difficult decisions in the story. And they
both change a great deal. I like how they handle an impossible situation with courage.

3. Tell us your thoughts about how sexy lust demons can be.

 I’ve read about psychic vampires in Jonathan Maberry’s Cryptopedia book and decided to create a race of immortal demons who need to assimilate lifeforce energy in order to survive. This energy is also necessary to maintain the existence of their artificial micro-world called Anartia. Anartia is a prison world that looks like paradise.

4. Do you have a playlist?

 I have a long playlist on my iPod/iTunes. I like a wide variety from rock, to industrial, electronic, to New Age.

Lately I like listening to Clubbed to Death by Furious Angels.
Something with an intense, electronic beat. Or sometimes I listen to
instrumental New Age stuff like, Far Away Trains Passing By by Ulrich Schnauss. It’s sort of white noise to keep me focused.

5. Zumba or yoga?


 I don’t have the coordination for Zumba. LOL

6. Thai vs. Cheeseburgers?


7. What three things would you want on hand if you actually
encountered a demon-lusty or not?

 A nebula stone and to know how to
use its powers. A wise Shaman or Sha Warrior who knows how to block the energy drain from a demon. Or a very fast car or motorcycle for escape.

8. What are some of your favorite naughty authors?

 Sooo many. Joey Hill, Lynn LaFleur, Maya Banks, Jaid Black, Laurann Dohner. Just to name a few.

9. What was the toughest scene you ever had to write?

 A death scene in Wild Jade. I cried when I wrote it. It still makes me teary eyed when I read it. But there is a happy ending.

10. What other writing projects are you working on?

 Book 2 in my TropiX series. Spring Break is Book 1. It’s an erotic contemporary.

Also an erotic suspense and an erotic paranormal. Keeping busy.

Thank you for being on the blog today!

Dante and Haley are enigmatic characters. They have known each other before this book, but finally realize their passion. You get to see the trust begin with them and blister into a hot relationship that begins to smolder. Very nice! Smoking hot sex scenes and a forever love. Because they knew each other before, this book is about the coming together aspect, but I didn't feel lost.

Great read!
