Name’s Kane, Kate Kane. I’m a paranormal private investigator, which is like a normal private investigator except—and stop me if you’re having trouble following this—more paranormal. This business comes with a few basic rules: don’t start drinking before noon, don’t get your partner killed, don’t sleep with the woman who killed him.
Last year I broke all of them.
The only rule I didn’t break was the one that said don’t work for vampires. But then a dead werewolf showed up outside the Soho shag palace of Julian Saint-Germain—a bloodsucking flibbertigibbet who’s spent the last eight centuries presiding over an ever-growing empire of booze, sex and hemoglobin.
I shouldn’t have taken the job. The last thing I needed was to get caught in a supernatural smackdown between a werewolf pack and a vampire prince. Even if the vampire prince was dangerously my type. But what can I say? I was broke, I’m a sucker for a pretty face and I gave up on making good decisions a long time ago.

Kate is a private detective operating in London, despite this being a first novel, she's got quite a past involving vampires, t...
A fun read in several ways. I quite liked the tone in general, as well as some of the characters. I think Elise remains my favourite, even though she doesn't appear that much, and I can only side with Julian when she says, basically, that [spoiler] "very few people manage to give life to something i...
What a fun paranormal romp! I was a little hesitant about this one, seeing as Glitterland by the same author had left me rather cold, but the first big bonus - NO DIALECT!!! Earned a star just for that, I swear. :) So Kate Kane is a bisexual PI (paranormal investigator) who drinks too much and ...
ARC provided by Riptide Publishing through Netgalley As I read this book's description it went something like this: Book: "My name's Kate Kane, and when an eight-hundred-year-old vampire prince came to me with a case--" Me: *yawn* Boring! Book: "I should have told her no. But I've always been a su...
