Overview

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.

    Our Review, by LITERAL ADDICTION's Pack Alpha - Michelle L. Olso

    Our Review, by LITERAL ADDICTION's Pack Alpha - Michelle L. Olson

    In my honest opinion, one of the better finds in reads I've encountered in awhile. Amazing characters, a great story, solidly built world
    and more. And seriously... What PNR reader wouldn't want a club of bad boy biker vampires, several with tragic pasts, rules that were
    made to be broken, taboo relationships that are all the more sexy for their forbidden nature, danger, intrigue, and more?

    In Viper, we have a Vampire Motorcycle Club (the Sons of Sangue) under intense scrutiny in their small town territory after a series of
    murders where the victims were drained of blood. The thing is... nobody actually knows that the Sons are Vampires.

    On the other side of the equation we have strong, confident and sexy Detective Cara Brahnam returning to her hometown after running
    far and fast when she was a teenager. After her return, she puts everything she has into catching this psycho and finds herself smack
    dab where she left all those years ago - face to face with the sexy (and yeah, a little scary) Kane Tepes. 

    The dynamic of this book was stellar - Vampire MC vs the Law, and when those bad boys mix with those feisty law enforcement females
     you KNOW sparks are gonna fly. 

    I highly recommend this book and I am super excited for the sequel to learn more about the next Son. :)

    Reviewed by Guest Reviewer/Kimberly & posted at Under the Covers Book Blog
    Before I give you my synopsis and review I must tell you all that it has been a while since I have gone and read a new paranormal romance. I have my mainstays, and I am now very picky with what I pick up, because if you saw my TBR pile, you would run for the hills… yup, that bad. So I put down my Highlanders and my Cowboys for a bit and I picked up Viper: Sons of Sangue by Patricia A. Rasey. Needless to say, I was a goner from the first scene… a very hotttt one at that. Not only do we have extremely attractive Vampires, but these Vampires are in a motorcycle gang. BRILLIANT.

    We meet Kane (Viper) Tepes and Kaleb (Hawk) Tepes, descendants of Vlad (the Impaler) Tepes III, yes, THAT Vlad Tepes. They also are the President and Vice President of the Sons of Sangue a Motorcycle Club in the wilds of Oregon.

    Trouble comes to town when someone or something is draining women of every drop of blood they have and leaving them haphazardly buried in the forests of Pleasant, Oregon. Detective Cara Brahnam, has recently come back to town after leaving in fear, several years before. Her eyes could not deceive her when she found Kane Tepes, ten years ago, feeding from a woman. Vampires can’t exist! Can they? Well Cara hightailed it out of Pleasant but returned ten years later after an unpleasant situation with a superior officer leaves a bad taste in her mouth.

    Cara is determined to solve the murders of these women, who coincidentally have similar features to her, blonde hair and blue eyes. When Cara and her partner attempt to question members of the Sons of Sangue, she isn’t all that shocked to see that Viper hasn’t changed a smidgen in 10 years, but is shocked to find herself attracted to this bad boy. Viper on the other hand is in denial. He can’t be attracted to Detective Brahnam since it would go against so many of the MC’s (Motorcycle Club) rules.

    Things become insanely dangerous when Viper realizes that it’s a primordial (an original Vampire) that is murdering the women, and Cara is not safe from its wrath. In fact, no one is safe.

    I’d say I was a tad enthusiastic in my summary, but totally necessary. What a fabulous story. Patricia A. Rasey knows how to grab the reader and not let go. Her motley crew of bad-ass bikers leaves the reader wanting more. Viper: Sons of Sangue (Book 1) by Patricia A. Rasey is high octane. A must read for all paranormal fans..

    Vampire Bikers...I can't say that Bikers are my idea of a great read. I don't mind violence in books but I don't like real criminals and most of the MC that I've read are criminals. 
    I was told by all my friends in June that I've got to read this series that it is fabulous and I'll fall hard for Viper and Hawk Tepes. Well I'm pleased to say that they were not wrong. I truly enjoyed this book and I can't wait to read the next one. 
    "Viper" is a good start to the series it had good world building and character development. The story is exciting and at times had me on the edge of my seat. It was a tad slow in places but it kept me intrigued. The Sons of Sangue are some very hot Vampires and Viper (Kane) is one sexy alpha male. I thought Cara Brahnam's character started out a little weak but then she came into her own and ended up being perfect for Kane Tepes. 
    I think Patricia A. Rasey set the next book "Hawk" up perfectly to make the reader want more. It's a good thing I bought both the books in June.

    This is book 1 of the Sons of Sangue book series by author Patricia Rasey. When I started reading this I did not know what kind of a story line it had but reading the previews of it that is what got me hooked.

    Cara Brahnam is a detective  for a small town in Oregon but she is haunted by a nightmare that happened 10 years ago in a club. Now she comes face to face with the man in her nightmare. Kane is President of a motorcycle group and a descendant of the vampire Vlad III and has had a thing for Cara for 10 years but her being a detective and a human puts him in a very dangerous position with his brothers in the gang.

    This is not your ordinary motorcycle book. The story line makes you want to hate and love the characters of the book. The motorcycle characters are shown as bad asses with a temper and a mouth to match and not some simple guy on a bike but real like bikers who care only for their brothers.

     Raw, dangerous, suspense are words I use to describe the gripping story line for this book but I was really pulled into it by the fact that the character Cara did not give up and was ready to prove what was what.

    This book is for mature paranormal book readers because of strong language and sexual content and is not for everyone. There are twists and turns in this book but the author Patricia Rasey never strays from the story line and delivers a hard hitting action and adventure from start to finish.

    This book was a bit different from other vampire books I have re

    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 Racey!! 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!!

    I am a sucker for a good vampire book. My good friend Kimmie over at Book Obsessed Chicks blog suggested this author to me last year and I was finally able to cross it off of my TBR list! This story is about a vampire motorcycle club in Pleasant, Oregon. 

    The book grabbed me from the prologue. I thought the story was a refreshing twist on the vampire legend and really appreciated Ms. Rasey’s originality in that respect. There were so many aspects of the vampirism and donor culture that I would have loved to learn more about. Hopefully I can get those answers in future books.

    Kane is a super sexy, play by the rules leader of the Sons of Sangue motorcycle club; but when he first saw Cara all those years ago, Kane started breaking rules left and right for this human. Ten years later, he continues to break them and nothing, not even the penalty of death, could keep Kane from Cara’s side. 

    The book had me wanting more. There were so many questions I wanted answers to and it left my curiosity permanently piqued. I really enjoyed Kane and Cara’s story and I’m looking forward to reading about Kaleb, Grayson, Xander and the other Sons in future books.
