"captivating contemporary romance"
Erin Thatcher loves her work as the owner-manager of the
successful pub Paddington's On Main in downtown Houston.
However, though her career provides much satisfaction, Erin
feels it is time to open up her personal life that she kept
on hold. She wants a fling before she settles on Mr. Right
whomever that might be. Every time she sees her loft
neighbor or hears him playing the blues, she dreams of a
night of sex.
She decides her neighbor Sebastian Gallo is the perfect
romantic romp; Erin pursues making her fantasy starring him
real. Sebastian shares her torrid reverie, but shies away
from his desires as he fears if he went under the covers
with her, she would uncover his dark secret that he is the
author of the Slater best-selling horror novels under the
name Falco. Still, neither can resist the lure of a one
night-stand which can blossom into a life time of happiness
if both parties cease running form commitment.
THE SWEETEST TABOO is a captivating contemporary romance that
works on several levels. Obviously being a Blaze imprint
means torrid scenes. Those are well written and fit nicely
into the story line. However, what turns on Alison Kent's
novel is the amusing yet serious banter between the lead
protagonists and the electronic dialogue amidst the females
of the "man to do" crowd that is part humor, part
compassionate, and totally on top.
