"Action, adventure and plenty of chocolate"

The Second Line by Sheryl Nantus is about a corporate thief named Jackie St. George who is hired to get information from a candy company called Chocofun. The chocolate treat the company intends to release is supposed to be one of the hottest sensations to hit the market and Jackie wants nothing more than to find out what this new sensation consists of.

Everything was going as planned until she is confronted by Janus Rosethron, a self proclaimed vampire with a poor fashion sense. Words are shared between the two. Out of fear, Jackie pulls her .38 out on Janus. She shoots him in the thigh but it doesn't even faze him. Janus then uses his hypnotic powers to make her come to him. When it looks like Jackie is going to fall into Janus' arms, shots are fired from a wooden crossbow. The spell is broken by Fletcher Dillon, a bookstore manager turned vampire hunter.

Jackie feels confused; the idea of vampires just seems crazy. But Fletcher tries to convince Jackie that Janus is in fact a real vampire by telling her stories about how his father was viciously murdered at the hands of Janus. The two soon set off to find out what is behind this mysterious candy company. What they find is shocking and Janus will stop at nothing to keep it a secret.

The Second Line by Sheryl Nantus is an action packed adventure filled with mystery and revenge. This story has all the elements readers dearly love; good characters, strong story and most of all chocolate...LOL. I really enjoyed reading this book and look forward to reading more from Sheryl Nantus.

Information is power - and being a corporate thief means getting the information your client needs, especially on their competitors and their products. Jackie St. George is one of the best in her field and when she sets out to find out the hot new confectionary treat at Chocofun she discovers a bit more than she planned for.

Confronted on the rooftop by a self-proclaimed "vampire" and saved by Fletcher Dillon, a "vampire hunter" she has to deal with the reality that these new candies may not be for human consumption alone - nor made of just chocolate.
