AfterDark's Interview with Cassandre Dayne

It's official. My very first interview with one of the most talented, wicked, and naughtiest authors in erotica, and she's my break-in as an interviewer. I feel very well honored to interview Cassandre Dayne.

Thank you for giving me the wonderful opportunity to interview you. Before we get started could you please tell us a little bit about yourself?
I call Cassandre Dayne the wicked girl side of the real me, Bethany Halle. Both girls love music, dogs more than people and a hot read outside with a lovely glass of win.
My personality is bold and I think that reflects in my books that I write.

How long have you been writing erotic stories, and what other genres do you write?
 I’ve been writing erotic for a little over a year. I started out writing science fiction and moved into paranormal – which I have an entire vampires series going under my real name. I also write under Dakotah Black with a campy murder mystery series called Pinked.

When did you know that writing this genre was for you? Did it come to you naturally, or was it something that has held your interest?

I think both. I tend to be a dramatic person and very passionate so I’ve been told I write very saucy sex scenes. I also love to read the genre.

How do your friends and families feel about your writing?
The majority of my family look away like its prostitution. While my husband won’t read my work, he is my website guru so I’m lucky. Friends are just starting to grow curious about why and how I can write erotic so fast so we’ll see if they come around.

When you read other people’s stories, what are you looking for to keep you interested?
 Are you looking for the excitement, romance, comedy, or etc? I enjoy reading in several genres but I think I’m looking for something a touch either out there as in wicked or a creative bend on ways to kill people.

What other books have you written?
There are so many titles right now that are out or coming out – Just recently released: Breakfast Eye Candy and Game Over. Coming soon are Truth, Dare or Dangerous Intent, Spankdown, Taming Paradise, Deception, Domination & Hunted Desire, Male Order and The Fire of Submission.

In a short synopsis, please tell us about your book Game Over ?

It’s my first m/m piece and the story is about a cop, Tony, in an all boys in blue precinct that have a don’t ask don’t tell policy and he hides his male lover, Caelen.  Caelen grows weary of being a dirty secret and is going to end the relationship so Tony must decide. In this case, he gives Caelen the fantasy he’s always dreamed of to entice him into staying.

What inspired you to write your story Game Over?
In truth I have many gay friends who continue to have some forms of prejudices thrown at them so I thought I would delve into the concept.

In the time that you have been writing erotic stories, what kind of characters do you always enjoy writing about? (the hero/heroine, dom/sub, or etc?)
 I personally love writing about bad boys that have a dark secret and about dom/sub relationships. They intrigue me tremendously.

When you’re creating a scene in your stories, how do you keep ideas fresh from other stories you’ve written?
It’s odd – I tell people that you give me ANY idea and I can write an erotic piece around it and it’s true. Stories come to me in the middle of the night and I quickly write them down and they expand. I have a back log of at least 100 and they all have a creative bent. I guess it’s because of my wicked mind!

What advice would you give to other writers of erotica, especially to those that are starting out?
Remember that you have to have a story no matter what and make your characters real. While formulas are out there – go with your gut when and how they should have sex and make it believable! Guys don’t use fluffy words and girls don’t always wear sexy things from Victoria’s Secret – well, my girls tend to but…  Most of all keep writing and don’t listen to the naysayers about erotic. It’s a wonderful ride.

Where can your books be purchased, and if you have a website, blog, or networking sites where people can follow you and your work?
Here are all my links and I can be found everywhere including Barnes & Noble Pubit, Amazon Kindle, Bookstrand, Coffee Time Romance and All Romance E Books.

GAME OVERCassandre Dayne – by Rebel Ink Press – hot off the presses!
Dark secrets and lies…could two lovers survive?


Tony Dartanion relished his life but he kept his private life hidden from the majority of the world. A decorated detective in the grittiest precinct in the Philadelphia police department, he was hungry to make Captain and willing to do almost anything. Unfortunately the old boy’s school had a don’t ask, don’t tell policy that enraged him and yet he kept his sexual appetites concealed. The boys in blue believed that he was a card-carrying man that desired all things in a skirt and stilettos. The truth was that he was in love with a man and one that he barely acknowledged outside of their bedroom. Caelen Tomlin was tired of being a dirty little secret.

In the beginning they had savored a highly erotic relationship and now, they were barely more than friends. Realizing he was going to lose the golden haired model if he didn’t change his ways, he planned a naughty event to entice Caelen and remind him of exactly why they were together. Sealed With a Kiss was a scandalous secluded club that catered to all things kinky and Tony was determined to fulfill every fantasy his lover craved and change his ridiculous ways. Unforgiving, Caelen refused to accept and Tony was forced to make an excruciating choice.


     Caelen gave him a mischievous gaze and shook his head. “Old argument. I’m in charge.” Pointing his finger, he swayed his hips back and forth. “Not only do you know it, you crave for me to take you over my knees to spank that Italian Stallion ass of yours. Whew, getting a little steamy out here.”
     “I suggest you not tease me tonight or you will pay.” Yet Caelen was right. The decision about who was the top in the relationship had been an old argument since they’d gotten together. Sparring was the last spark in their wicked tryst.
     “Are you man enough to take me?”
     “You’re on fire tonight and don’t push me cause I’m gonna push back.” Tony hadn’t even been looking for a steady guy in his bed. Hell, he’d been just coming to terms with the fact that he embraced being gay and then Caelen Tomlin walked into his life.  The stunning cover model, dancer and aspiring actor was nothing short of perfection. Tony fought the possibilities then, knowing what he was going to have to face around the guys. So th two men toyed around getting together for three solid months, playing a sizzling cat and mouse game long enough for Tony to check Caelen out thoroughly. Perks of the career. Caelen was clean, he came from a good family and smokin hot. Standing six foot three with perfectly toned muscles, long shaggy blond hair and the most dazzling emerald green eyes Tony had ever seen on a man, Tony salivated thinking back to their first meeting.
     And their first hard fuck. Inhaling deeply, Tony could almost smell the scent of the Italian restaurant from their first date. By the time they finished a bottle of wine, they were so damn hot for each other Tony dragged Caelen into the alley.
      “You want me?” Tony hissed, licking his lips.
    “The question is, can you handle me?” Caelen preened, sliding his hands down his chest, teasing. Inviting.
     “I suggest you come here.”
     “Or what?”
     Tony eyed him casually, contemplating. Taking a long stride, he jerked the sexy blond to his chest, crushing his mouth as he cupped his chiseled ass. Forcing his tongue to the back of his throat, Tony tasted the sweet essence of spiced rum as his cock swelled. Then Tony pushed him hard against the brick wall and broke the wicked moment of passion, staring at Caelen wild eyed. “I’m going to fuck you.”
     Caelen panted and glided both hands down Tony’s chest to stroke his cock. “Why don’t I fuck you first?”
     “You’ll get your chance later.” Taking a step back, Tony unfastened his skin-tight jeans and nodded to him. “Better get ready or I won’t be gentle.”
     “Who says I like it gentle?”
     Tony growled. “Show me.”
     Grinning wickedly, Caelen began a little dance of lust, strutting back and forth as the shimmering moon cast a luminous haze down across the darkened space. Tugging his belt free, he swayed back and forth as he slowly unzipped his pants, grazing one hand under his body hugging violet silk shirt.
     Tony had never been as hungry for any human in his life. “Hurry, I’m famished.” He pulled out his cock and stroked in fevered motions as he continued to watch the shameless dance.
     Caelen opened his button fly, revealing the lack of underwear.
      Sucking in his breath, Tony narrowed his eyes as Caelen pulled out his cock. The long thick muscle was a thing of beauty and one Tony wanted to taste, but at the moment, it was Caelen’s lily-white perfect ass he wanted to take…hard. “Bend over and brace the wall.”
     Tony raised his eyebrow as he laughed. “You’ll learn.” Stalking him for several sinful seconds, Tony used the power of his upper body strength to push Caelen against the wall, forcing his legs as far apart as the dense material around his knees would allow. Glancing up and down the alley, Tony knew he was risking more than just getting caught. He was endangering his career but his hunger, his need was too great.
    “ Shit…you are…” Caelen palmed the wall and threw his head back, lifting his naked ass into the chilly air.
      Tony rubbed his ass cheeks, enjoying the way his hard curves fit into his hand. Running his finger up and down Caelen’s crack, he wet the fingers of his other hand and slid them to Celen’s dark hole. “Gonna take you hard and fast, brother. Sure you can handle what I can dish out?”
     “Try me.”
     Wasting no time, Tony sliced a single finger inside Caelen’s ass, pushing past the tight ring of muscles as Caelen groaned.
    “Shit!” He clawed the brick and dropped his head, arching his back.
     “God, so damn tight. Can’t wait to taste that sweet little rose bud of yours,” Tony grunted as he reached around and cupped Caelen’s fully erect cock. Every part of him tingling and he quivered as he inserted a second finger inside, pulsing in and out. As Caelen’s ass muscles gripped around Tony’s invasion, Tony closed his eyes and relished the scintillating moment of being with a man. He picked up his pace, the force pushing Caelen into the wall again.
     “God, fuck me. I…can’t…stand it.”
     His heart thumping wildly, Tony grunted like the caged animal he was and lifted his cock, placing the tip at Caelen’s tight entrance. “Oh yeah, you’re one delicious fuck. I’m going to enjoy this.” Pressing it inside, Tony threw his head back and roared as he impaled Caelen in one hard drive, nearly slamming his head into the dense bricks.
     “Fuck!” Caelen screamed, his body shaking violently.
