Ex-Marine Jake Wilcox has recently been hired on as Amanda’s security chief and body guard. He’s sex personified with a touch of class and utterly irresistible as far as Amanda’s concerned. More importantly, he’s also very smart, fun and personable. That he’s got the brawn to see to Amanda’s safety is a huge plus, especially as they travel to parts of the world where men still dominate the business world.
Amanda plans to expand her company to the Middle East so she’s traveling to Dubai aboard her private Lear Jet where she’s to confer with a room full of Arab sheiks. She’s concentrated on her business for the past four years and completed neglected her womanly needs but Jake knows that if she has any hope of getting these men to listen to her she has to present herself as a confident ‘whole’ woman. She can display no vulnerability and by reintroducing her to her own sexuality and desire she’ll be able to present herself as a confident satisfied woman who knows who she is and what she wants.
Amanda and Jake spend their time aboard the Lear Jet to their advantage – indulging in all their pent up desires and needs. Jake’s extremely convincing about the benefits to her business and Amanda’s wanted him since the day she hired him she’s certainly not about to say ‘no.’ However, once the sexual rush dies down she has to wonder how any sort of relationship between them will work. She’s his employer and quite a bit older to boot. Dare she hope that Jake will be interested in continuing their affair into the future?
POWER POSITION depicts the strength women possess as well as the abject vulnerability. Women walk a fine line balancing their needs and sometimes we could really use a strong man to help in that department. Jake’s former status as a Marine and his self confident attitude is exactly what Amanda needs to reawaken a side of herself she’s allowed to lay dormant since her husband’s death. Cerise Deland does a remarkable job coupling erotic elements into an emotionally impacting storyline so that readers will care about the characters as well as enjoy a little tingly sensation at some of the more explicit scenes.
