Background: (revealed to reader in dialogue during main story)

Angel in Stilettos

Male guardian angels can qualify at 150 years of age, yet a female is considered by the elder generations of angels as too immature and must wait another 30 years. In a stand for sexual equality, Loriel, being one of the top students in her grade, is nominated to receive equal status to show this way of thinking as being so outdated.

Her first charge, a human boy, grows into a handsome young man, so handsome she feels attraction toward him. The attraction becomes obsession until one night she succumbs to temptation and enters his dreams as a succubus. Such obsession is not unusual for a male angel--an incubus-however, the female charge toward whom such obsession is directed, usually turn to religion and join a convent. In the case of Loriel, an honest, upright young man is turned to a life of lust and debauchery. His soul lost to the dark side, she has committed the most heinous of crimes-violation of his immortal spirit.

The sentence for her sin is banishment to a world where demons, elves and half breeds run amok among the human society, reeking havoc with greed, corruption and organised crime. Here, she will suffer pain and humiliation until she can find her reincarnated lost charge and return him to the light.

The humans on this world are filled with evil thoughts. Most do not realise they have immortal spirits, making her task almost impossible as she cannot see into their soul to recognise the one for whom she searches. The only times she is able to sense the spirit are the moment of death, or that short instant of sexual orgasm thought of as a miniature death. Knowing he was reincarnated in a male human figure in the area she entered, her options seem either to comfort every man on his death bed, or...

Outline of story.

Materializing through an inter-dimensional portal in a derelict cathedral in the city of Srong Servina, she meets Cervilon, a demon / elf half-breed. He convinces her that he can help find the one she seeks and taking the role as her manager, obtains employment for her at The Kitty Kavern, a club owned by Madame Siren offering a floor show of live sex and known to its more insalubrious clientele as the “Pussy Club.” As a telepath, Loriel (mistakenly) believes Cervilon can hide nothing from her, thus, she is unaware of his evil intentions.

Unbeknown to her, during the throes of orgasm, the bared soul of the client is vulnerable to being snared and imprisoned by a demon leaving the zombie-like corpse as a potential host to demonic possession. In this way, it is becoming possible for the demon horde to infiltrate the upper echelons of society and take over positions of power.

Concern that previously staunch conservative members of the Queen’s government have suddenly changed their allegiance to favour the dark forces has initiated an investigation by the Secret Security Network, (think MI6 / CIA) into the backgrounds of these personnel and their involvement with The Kitty Kavern. TeeRaigo Bran, agent for the SSN, is conducting the investigation. Like other humans, he has no knowledge of souls, but his enquiries lead him into a tryst with the devastating succubus. After questioning Loriel, his suspicions are directed toward the affairs of Cervilon and a connection with the portal in the derelict cathedral.

As demons possess supernatural powers, Loriel convinces Bran (TeeRaigo is his family name) that being immortal and with powers of her own, she can assist in an investigation of the building. The realisation that she may have been naively instrumental in the demonic scheme convinces her she must do anything possible to help.

Lured into a crypt deep underground, they discover a prison in which the tormented human souls (ghosts) are incarcerated and tortured by the Underground Police. Before they can do anything, the investigators are attacked by guards during which Loriel is captured. Unable to make a telepathic connection with Bran she concludes he is dead.

The demons find amusement in using her to provide sexual gratification to their perversions. A party is planned to celebrate the success of the infiltration into human affairs to which some of the top members of the demonic world are invited. Sexual entertainment for the evening is to be provided by an angel after which she will be crucified to see if angels really are immortal.

I have several variations on an ending depending whether demons or humans win, and whether I decide to kill off the main characters. Favourite at the moment is to have a battle between humans and demons during which Loriel is rescued by Bran, but he is mortally injured. As he is dying, Loriel realises his is the lost soul she has been looking for, but she is faced with a dilemma. As an angel, she has the power to heal. If she lets him die, her sentence will be reprieved and she will return to her own world, however, his death will jeopardize the lives of his wife and baby daughter. Alternatively, she can heal him but she will then be forced to remain on earth until the end of his natural life, and possibly for ever.
