Jaded Vamp Jaded Vamp Series Book 1 by L.D. Wosar Genre: Erotic Paranormal Romance
I was born only to be a menace to society until I was ratted out and became a menace inside of the walls of the Swift Correctional Facility in Southern California while doing an LWOP sentence. However, freedom came in the form of sacrificing my mortality to become an immortal killer - a kick-ass vamp. In my journey to immortality, my bond with my maker, Dominic Belluomo opens the door to not only great and powerful love, but to be an elite soldier in his Milite Coven. It is my duty to drain those who did me wrong, to protect my coven, and to protect the man who spared my life.
When my thoughts were first overwhelmed with visions of inmate Goad, all I could envision was the resurrection of my love, Kassandra Lillywhite. I chose to sacrifice a young girl’s wasted life for my own selfish reasons-I wanted to feel my love again. However, Kaycee Goad teaches me to be patient and what real love is. She is my mate, she is my elite soldier with a huge IDGAF attitude who could save this dying covenant. Kaycee Goad is my forever love and I do everything in my power to protect what’s mine.
“Since you are apprehensive, I will leave this cell and never bother you again, Kassandra. It’s up to you, eternal life, or rot here within these four walls?” He had one hand on the door, about ready to knock.
“Wait. Wait. Don’t go.” Dominic sat down on my cot and raised his brows. “So I watched ‘Interview with the Vampire’ about a thousand times. I know how this works. You suck my blood.” Doing my best Tom Cruise impression, quoted a line from ‘Interview with the Vampire.’ “And then you make me drink your blood. I lose my shit as I die as a mortal, and then I look on with my ‘vampire eyes’ and go on a killing spree.”
Dominic smiled at me, furrowing his brow, “It’s something like that. So, Kassandra, I’m going to start the process and give you twenty-four hours to give me your decision.”

Where were you born/grew up at? I was born in Olympia, Washington a very long time ago – in the same hospital as my father. I was a Navy Brat, so we moved every four years. I grew up in Washington to California to Florida back to Washington and eventually down to California. However, I’ve been living in Las Vegas for 17 years now and this is what I call my home.
How did you come up with name of this book? At first the book was called I.D.G.A.F and it was going to be a modern day retelling of Little Orphan Annie where the lead character was indifferent to everything. Yet, it transformed into a vampire story and decided to change the name to ‘Jaded Vamp.’
Who designed your book covers? Trice Ellis at DreamCovers by K&L designed my gorgeous covers for the entire Jaded Vamp series. (Wild Vamp coming soon – Fierce Vamp in September)
How did you come up with the concept and characters for the book? The original concept was about a teenage girl who did nothing but cause a lot of trouble. Once I changed it to a vampire story, it became a girl who was essentially lost and a troublemaker when she was a human. However, once she’s turned, she looks at this as a second chance at ‘life’ and love, for that matter. Kaysee Goad is the main character and she’s been bounced around foster homes. She get mixed up with an older man who leads her into a life of crime. When she is solely accused of the crimes, which were plenty and she’s not innocent, she is sentenced to a LWOP term in prison. Ten years into her sentence she gains the attention of a handsome vampire who ‘gives her the choice he never had.’
Dominic Belluomo is the main male whose purpose of being ‘King’ of the Milite Coven was to see how many vampires he could sleep with, while throwing his weight around. However, when he turns and bonds with Kaysee, he becomes more centered and his perspective about love and power shifts because of her.
Where did you come up with the names in the story? I started writing a story a long time with a female named Casey and wanted to use the name. Originally, her name was spelled Kaycee – the last name Goad, I have no idea. I may have been craving cheese and thinking of Gouda. My PA helped me with the name Dominic and Belluomo is Italian for handsome.
What did you enjoy most about writing this book? Stepping out of my comfort zone for one. I normally write historical PNR in 3rdperson prose, so this was my first contemporary and first vampire in the 1stperson prose. Oh, not to mention, it’s my first heavy erotic novel. It was also liberating to curse up a storm. Even so, it was the characters in the book that made this so fun to write.
