Conti is very certain of her abilities as marketing
manager. Sheís ambitious and determined with the track
record to back it up. So it comes as a terrible blow to
lose the designing project with Shield Communications when
the owner, Devon Slane, decides to go with another firm.
Heís everything she despises in a man: arrogant, ruthless
and far too good-looking. He needs to be taken down a peg
or two for trying to manipulate her under the guise of
business. Bianca fails to anticipate that a Drakhom male is
more than willing to meet the challenge, especially when
itís a woman he craves.
Celia Jadeís clean precise writing, to-die-for men and
exuberant women make my heart sing. The Drakhom Taboo
II is as savory and lustrous as dark chocolate cake
with an extra dollop of whipped cream sprinkled with red
pepper. Sweetness with a bite! Everything is straight and to
the point; the battle of the sexes takes on a keener edge
when applied to Biancaís and Devonís rules of engagement.
They crossed swords verbally and matched wits until I wasnít
certain who would win. Bah! Who cares? The battle raged
hot and the end result was a feisty and fiery tumble between
the sheets, Drakhom style, of course. Nothing could go
wrong then, and as always, Ms. Jade delivers. I was pleased
with this second helping and admit to being seduced by the
elusive world of the half-human, half-vampire Drakhom. You
wonít be breaking any taboos by reading these stories but
youíll wish there were a few Drakhom around to tempt you.
