What’s a little blackmail between consenting adults?
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.
I just love Tiffany Allee's characters. Even when they are in the midst of dark situations, they still have a brightness to them. In Don't Blackmail the Vampire, we get to read about some of the fallout from Don't Bite the Bridesmaid. There's stalking, threats, an engagement to put the kibosh on, and a hoot of a romance. Charles and Rachael have basically the same agenda, just for different reasons. Rachael wants to prove to her sister that the man she is about to marry, Brent is scum. Charles wants to find out if he is behind the threat to his new sister-in-law, Alice.
Now let me just say that I personally think Rachael's sister Kristen and Brent deserve each other. See Brent was initially engaged to Alice, also Kristen's BEST friend. Yes, Kristen is THAT girl. Not to rehash the first book, but when you screw over your BFF for a cheating man ho, well karma is a bitch. Alice is MUCH better off now with her sexy vampire Ethan (Charles' older brother), but somebody wants Alice to end the relationship. She has been receiving threatening emails and phone calls. This is where Charles comes in. He needs to find out if Brent is having regrets, and wants Alice back.
Rachel is desperate to save her sister from Brent's womanizing and destructive clutches. Now I appreciate the sisterly protection, but really, any grief Kristen gets, Kristen asked for. So, in this I was pulling against Rachel. Otherwise, I really liked her as a match for Charles. Not only did she not fall for his gorgeous looks, she didn't freak when she finds him having a quick bite on a busty blond. Nope, she uses this info to make sure he's in her camp with getting rid of Brent.
All in all, this was another shining example from Tiffany Allee on how a romance should be written. It should make you smile, it should make you shiver, and it should make you long for the next book. Job extremely well done as always. Bravissima!
