Indigo Skye’s Uniform Behaviour Inspiration
I’m going to be posting a series of guest blogs and interviews over the duration of the Uniform Behaviour competition which will give an insight into the minds of the contributing authors. Here, Indigo Skye, author of True Confession tells us where the idea came from for her awesome story…
Over to Indigo:
Q: What was your inspiration for the story “True Confession?”
A: I write what turns me on. As a lapsed Catholic, some of my fantasies involve flaunting sexual taboos, like having sex in a church or tempting a priest to sin. Hot young priests have always been the forbidden fruit in my banquet of sensual delights. We always want what we can’t have. What’s hotter than the ultimate unattainable fuck- a man of the cloth?
My female characters aren’t your typical romance-novel heroines. Charlotte is anything but a passive good girl waiting patiently for the man of her dreams. A little older and wiser than Matthew, she’s the one with all the power in the relationship. This aspect of the story was informed by the cougar phenomenon currently taking the nation by storm. Older women are coming into their own- taking charge in their careers and in their relationships. They refuse to settle for anything less than fabulous sex with hot young boy-toys, and I fully support that.
The concept for this story was informed by two characters. Father Matthew, a young parish priest who’s questioning his vocation, meets Charlotte at a church picnic. Tempted by her womanly wiles, he invites her to join the ladies’ choral society, promising to give her private singing lessons. Charlotte, the blackest sheep in his flock, will stop at nothing to get what she wants. With her sights set on the young priest, she plots to seduce him. The story races to a climax with a thrilling power play. Father Matthew soon finds he’s no match for this sexy Southern belle. Tempted into sin and on a sure path to damnation, he’s helpless to resist.
Indigo Skye’s first novel, Her Captive Muse, was released by Noble Romance Publishers in January. Her work has been widely published online. Last fall, her short story “True Confession” was published in the anthology Uniform Behaviour. A full list of her published works is available on her blog: http://indigoskyeinkandart.blogspot.com.
