Rachel Davis will do anything to get her sister out of a bad relationship with her fiancĂ©. Even if it involves a few fibs, a little breaking-and-entering, and blackmailing the fiancĂ©’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.

Don’t Blackmail the Vampire is sexy good fun. I adored Tiffany Allee’s first Sons of Kane book, Don’t Bite the Bridesmaid, and I’m thrilled that the second story in the series lives up to the promise of the first.

Rachel is a woman on a mission. Her sister is engaged to the worst sort of man and refuses to see it. Trying to blackmail a vampire into helping her probably isn’t the wisest idea, but Rachel’s love for her sister makes her take risks, which I could appreciate. It’s impossible not to like Rachel, for she’s caring, loyal, and has a vulnerable side that makes her wary of trusting her heart to anyone. Luckily, Charles isn’t just any man. He’s a sexy-as-sin vampire with an easy charm and a deep-seated need to protect his family. He’s amused by Rachel’s blackmail attempt, but goes along with it in order to help her out while protecting his “sister,” Alice. As a couple, Rachel and Charles have the kind of sizzling chemistry that makes Don’t Blackmail the Vampire an engaging read.

As I previously mentioned, Don’t Blackmail the Vampire is the second Sons of Kane book. While it can be read as a standalone, this story is a true sequel to Don’t Bite the Bridesmaid. Rachel’s no-good-not-quite-brother-in-law is Alice’s ex and her sister is the woman Brent cheated on Alice with. Brent is the reason Charles meets Rachel, as someone seems to be threatening Alice and Brent is the chief suspect Charles is looking into. The good news for fans of Don’t Bite the Bridesmaid is that Noah and Alice appear and we get a very satisfying look into their lives now that they’ve gotten their happily ever after.

Don’t Blackmail the Vampire is funny, charming, and wholly entertaining. I adored Charles and Rachel and I can’t wait to read more Sons of Kane stories!
