Dread, Desire, and Damaged Dream by S.B. Medina
A physically battered and psychologically traumatized wife rediscovers her sense of self while exploring her repressed sexuality in the temporary refuge of a seedy motel. As she battles against her husband’s indoctrinated fear of filth and vermin, opening herself to creepy-crawly caresses, the toll on her fragile sanity grows too heavy to bear.
A low-rent sex-worker with surprising vulnerabilities offers an unorthodox path to life and love, but it will mean betraying everything her husband ever taught her was good and proper. It’s a temptation she longs to embrace, but can she break free of the woman he forced her to be in order to become the woman she wishes she was?
Extensively revised and rewritten with twice as much sex and horror, DREAD, DESIRE, AND DAMAGED DREAMS is a darkly erotic story of sexual redemption that explores the consequences of dread, the promise of desire, and the redemption of damaged dreams.
