According to legend, the green flash--an almost magical effect seen at certain sunsets--signifies the opening of the world beyond life. In Key West, where green flashes are sometimes seen, Claire Marion and her boyfriend, Ian, have come to the annual Fantasy Fest with very different agendas. Ian has body paint and three-way sex on his mind, but Claire is seeking something she cannot name.
Amidst the wild revelry of the fest, Claire meets one fascinating man and then another. Together the three of them will explore new worlds of pleasure and dark magic, illuminated by the green flash.
Ms. Caperton has written an interesting story of romance, lust and hidden meaning.
Claire is a woman searching for something, but unsure just what that is. When Ian brings another woman to their hotel room, Claire walks in on them in the act. Ian asks her to join in, but she makes the break and leaves, showing an inner strength of spirit I had to admire. She ends up meeting Dwight and Ashton, and they bring her senses alive the way no one else ever has.
Although Dwight is described as working for Ashton, we slowly come to realize we never see Ashton before sundown, and although it is never overtly stated, Ashton is a vampire, and he and Dwight have decided to claim Claire.
The ultimate scene of passion on the beach with Claire, Dwight and Ashton, is so hot it nearly burns the fingers. Only during this scene is it made known what Ashton is, and it is done with such cunning that I almost missed the reference. Does Claire live happy ever after? Let’s just say that she embarks on a wonderful adventure with Ashton and Dwight, one that promises to be a very hot future for all involved.
