Viper by Patricia A Rasey

Book Description

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.

Book Trailer

This book was a bit different from other vampire books I have read. The biker element had been done but NOT in THIS way! The Son's of Sangue are the embodiment of biker clubs. They take care of their own and and their territory. They are of the "love them and leave them, no woman is special" mentality. They have their own laws and their own way of dealing with rule and lawbreakers. Add in the vampiric element and you have an even stronger, tougher biker, who loves harder and deeper when he allows himself to fall. If someone threatens that love all hell is going to break loose.

That said we begin the book with the prologue introducing us to our characters 10 years ago when Cara Brahnam was a teen ready to go to college. The meeting left an impression on both of them!

Kane 'Viper' Tepes, the great grandson of Vlad III,  is the President of the Son's of Sangue MC. He rules the club with a strong hand and those who break their laws and puts their coven at risk of discovery is dealt with swiftly. He and the club keeps their business pretty clean, they enjoy staying on the right side of the law, meaning they have a deal going with the Sheriff. When women are being murdered in Pleasant,Viper becomes number 1 suspect, and the cop who is trying to pin the murders on him is none other than Clara Brahnam. The last time he seen her was 10 years before and she has been a burn in his pants since. He wants the little cop, always has. He just isn't sure he can behave himself as their laws dictate when he is with her.

Clara Brahnam last seen Viper with his pants down feeding on a willing donor. She has been in denial that vampires are real ever since and refuses to believe what she saw was real. She has always been hot for Viper even when he became her nightmare she still wanted him. Now that she is having to keep coming into contact with him it is becoming combustible. She is trying to figure out what happened to these dead women and who killed them. She isn't as sure as her partner is that Viper killed them.

When the actual murderer targets Clara, personal beliefs and feelings are put to the test.

I am completely hooked on Patricia A Rasey!! This book solidified my new found love of her writing! I can't get enough of the Sons of Sangue. It will be so hard waiting for the next installments of this series. The story is fresh and hot. I never got tired of reading. My only problem with the book was having to put it down! This is a definite read for any one who loves vampires.  These guys are far from our usual vampire reads. They aren't suave 'know exactly what to say ' men. They are foul mouthed, rude, pushy and they sure as heck don't sparkle in the sunlight!! Fantastic!!
