***THIS BOOK WAS GIVEN TO ME IN EXCHANGE FOR AN HONEST REVIEW***
Kane ‘Viper’ Tepes is one of the oldest living descendants of Vlad III. Vampirism is in his blood. So is being the President of the Sons of Sangue. Those who break motorcycle club rules that protect their coven are dealt swift punishment. No exceptions. Until one pretty little detective has him compromising his beliefs, and endangering his position as head of the MC.
Vampirism had Cara Brahnam turning tail and leaving behind her life in Pleasant. Now, ten years later, she’s back as lead detective and wants to see the person responsible for draining the women of Lane County brought to justice, no matter what deal the gang of miscreants has struck with the sheriff. Or the fact that her number one suspect is the sole reason she fled in the first place.
Now someone has targeted Cara as the next victim and Kane must join in the hunt to find the ancient vampire that wants her dead.
This first book in the Sons of Sangue series throws together a cop who is dedicated to her job and a smokin’ hot motorcycle club president who just happens to also be a vampire. Detective Cara Brahnam has known Kane “Viper” Tepes for over a decade and isn’t convinced that he’s a vampire, even though she’s seen his fangs in action. She tries to stay away from him, and it works until a series of vicious murders occur. The evidence leads her straight to Viper and his motorcycle club of vampires.
Viper has always followed the rules of the MC to the core, until he meets Cara ten years earlier. Instead of manipulating her memory, he allows her to remember what she saw. While not really the wisest choice he could have made, it’s helpful that she knows what he is when an ancient vampire makes a threat on Cara’s life. Viper knows that while the vampire will kill her, it’s not her he’s after. Viper is the target and this vamp will do anything to destroy him.
Overall, the characters a fantastic. They grow so much throughout the book and discover things about themselves. Cara reminds me a lot of Detective Eve Dallas in the J.D. Robb books; she can be hard core, but also has a soft loving side to her as well. It’s a great mix that the author pulls off really well. Viper is amazing. The conflict that he goes through over his feelings for Cara and the rules of the MC really tear him. In the end he makes a choice that will change everyone’s lives.
Get the book, see for yourself how they make out. And be ready for the second book about Kane’s twin brother, Hawk. You won’t be disappointed.
