Title: Don't Blackmail the Vampire
Rachel Davis will do anything to get her sister out of a bad relationship with her fiancé. Even if it involves a few fibs, a little breaking-and-entering, and blackmailing the fiancé's potential boss, Charles, for his help. So what if the handsome Charles happens to be a vampire?
Charles Wright has found the perfect way to trap the man threatening his brother's wife: cozy up to him, get invited along on the skiing trip, and then search for incriminating evidence. How much better that audacious but gorgeous Rachel is just as eager to nail the bastard. As far as he's concerned, there's nothing wrong with a little blackmail between two consenting adults. Especially when it's time for Rachel to pay up.

Rachel knows her sisters fiance is bad news but no matter what she says, er sister won’t listen to her. When she comes across Charles having a late night snack of a woman’s neck (not killing, just having a sip) she decides to blackmail him into helping her break up her sister’s relationship. Charles has his own reasons for wanting to be around the fiance so he agrees to help Rachel. As they spend more time together Rachel and Charles are drawn to each other and soon are more interested in each other than those around them.
I really enjoyed this story! Such a light, funny read that held my attention from the first page. The characters are well-developed and engaging. I enjoyed getting to read the story from both Charles and Rachel’s perspectives.
Charles is a vampire and while it does influence the characters actions, it wasn’t what the book was about. We learn a bit about how the vampires work in this world but not too much. While vampires aren’t ‘out’ they aren’t so deep in the closet that it’s a death threat when Rachel learns about them.
Rachel and Charles were a fun couple to read about. Charles is more open, fun-loving, carefree and friendly than Rachel is. From their first meeting Rachel tries to ouch Charles off and doesn’t want to open up to him. I understood her reasons for being so standoffish but it was a bit clichéd.
We meet quite a few characters in this book and are left with a small thread hanging. It’s a mild spoiler so don’t read this next part if you don’t want to know. But what happened to Brent? After all is said and done and Rachel outs him as a jerk, what becomes of him? Does he slink off? Try to get her sister back? I am curious but, alas, we are left in the dark.
This is the second book in the series Son’s of Kane. While some of the characters appear in both books this novel can be read as a stand alone. This was my first novel by this author but it won’t be my last. I will be on the lookout for more books by Allee.
