Blurb: As far as Bianca Conti was concerned, she’d lost a significant design project for her company because of Devon Slane. Specifically, because of an unfortunate incident prior to their meeting that wasn’t even her fault. Bianca would like nothing more than to bring that arrogant man down a few notches and extract revenge. Devon wanted spirited Bianca so much he declined her company’s bid, leaving her open to pursuit…to bend her to his will and teach her some of his Drakhom skills in bed.

Bookish Things: 27 pages. The cover is the same as the first and third books in the trilogy. Fitting to the story line.

Review: The Drakhom Taboo

Synopsis: Drakhoms were the offspring of humans and vampires. Typically beautiful and dark, they were known to possess strong sexual appetites, without the need for blood. Nonetheless, accounts of unusual sexual encounters with the species made Kate Randall wary of them. She had no desire to experience intimate activity that involved dangerously sharp teeth. Kate is instantly attracted to her new client, Tanton Manning. No surprise there—he’s strikingly handsome and successful. But she suspects that he’s a Drakhom.

Bookish Things: 23 pages. This is the first part of a three part series. All the overs are the same

Where to buy: Amazon on kindle for $2.85

My Review: 

What would a child born of human and vampire look like?

Pale and sickly? Sparkly with red eyes?

No, according to Celia Jade, they are glorious examples of the darkest coloring, hair, eyes, skin. And while mortal and not requiring blood to live, they still possess the tell-tale fangs of their parentage.

Oh, and they have heightened sexual appetite…just in case you were wondering.

An interesting take on vampirism, the Drakhom Taboo is a short work of erotic nature. It is rather flowery in its word choices (‘her quivering womb clenches his raging member’ as a paraphrased example).

I thought the smexy-time was different enough to be interesting (the mirror bit, a nice touch) but the rest of the story felt a tad rushed and disjointed.

For a couple of dollars on kindle, this short story (of which there are two more in the series) is worth picking up, if only for a quick raunchy read.
