Character Interview With Lisa Desrochers: Luc Cain from PERSONAL DEMONS.

So, today I am excited to have an interview with the fantastic Lisa Desrochers, author of this book:

Here's the blurb:

Frannie Cavanaugh is a good Catholic girl with a bit of a wicked streak. She's spent years keeping everyone at a distance—even her closest friends—and it seems her senior year will be more of the same...until Luc Cain enrolls in her class. No one knows where he came from, but Frannie can't seem to stay away from him. What she doesn't know is that Luc works in Acquisitions—for Hell—and she possesses a unique skill set that has the king of Hell tingling with anticipation. All Luc has to do is get her to sin, and he’s as tempting as they come. Frannie doesn’t stand a chance.

Unfortunately for Luc, Heaven has other plans, and the angel, Gabe, is going to do whatever it takes to make sure that Luc doesn’t get what he came for. And it isn't long before they find themselves fighting for more than just her soul.

But if Luc fails, there will be Hell to pay…for all of them.

Okay, so that's all about the book. Now, in fear of being smited, I need to introduce the real star of this interview. Ladies and gentlemen, I present Hell's very own, Luc Cain.

Lindsay: I've heard you described as cocky, dangerous and seductive. If you had to choose three words to describe yourself what would they be and why?

Demon, demon, demon. Because I’m a demon.

Amparo: What are the best and worst things about working for Hell?

Hmm…well…there are perks to being the best at what you do. I’ve worked my way up to a First Level demon, which means, for the most part, I can choose my assignments. I like to get to mortals when they’re still open and adventurous. High school’s pretty much the place to be, and because my numbers are good, Lucifer lets me do what I want. Down side: you screw up, you end up dismembered and burning in the bottom of the Fiery Pit for all eternity. No fun, even for a demon.

Katrina: What's your favorite sin?

Pride. I’m a Creature of Pride. All others are inferior.

Lindsay: If I was trying to decide between heaven and hell how would you help me choose?

Everyone’s initial reaction is to say they’d choose Heaven. If you stop and think about it for even a minute, I think you’d see that the answer isn’t as clear-cut as you might think. First of all, you need to understand that there are a lot of rules in Heaven. Pretty much anything goes in Hell. It’s like a really hot, sticky party. Sort of. No matter what you do, no one is going to rip your wings off and throw you out, so it’s really much more laid back.

Amparo: How confident are you in terms of turning Frannie over to the dark side?

You’re joking, right?

Katrina: What's the easiest sin to get humans to commit?
That depends entirely on the mortal. They all tend toward something. It’s just a matter of blurring the lines between right and wrong enough that they let their inhibitions go. I just have to get them to the tipping point and they’ll eventually give in to Greed, Lust, Sloth, Wrath, Envy, Gluttony and even Pride.
So there you have it.
Thank you to Lisa Desrochers, and Luc, for being guests on my blog today.

I'm so dense. Could you delete my previous comment and replace it with:

I heart this interview so much!! It always makes me laugh when Luc says, "You're joking, right?"

Looks like this is a must-read! Thank you, Lisa and Lindsay (and Luc, of course. Thank you, Luc).

Of course I know who you are, Lindsay. Just had a morning brain lapse. ;)
