In the shadows of the night in Caldwell, New York, there's a deadly turf war going on between vampires and their slayers. There exists a secret band of brothers like no other - six vampire warriors, defenders of their race. Yet none of them relishes killing their enemies more than Wrath, the leader of the Black Dagger Brotherhood...

The only purebred vampire left on the planet, Wrath has a score to settle with the slayers who murdered his parents centuries ago. But when one of his most trusted fighters is killed - orphaning a half-breed daughter unaware of her heritage or her fate - Wrath must usher the beautiful female into the world of the undead...

Racked by a restlessness in her body that wasn't there before, Beth Randall is helpless against the dangerously sexy man who comes to her at night with shadows in his eyes. His tales of brotherhood and blood frighten her. But his touch ignites a dawning hunger that threatens to consume them both...

I had been told that I had to read Black Dagger Brotherhood series for quite sometime now. I finally reserved some at the library, just to see before I bought them. I have since purchased a boat load from The Book Depository. Wow!! These are not YA books!!!!! Keep them away from the young chickens.

Wrath, Tohrment, Rhage, Phury, Zsadist, Vishious, Darius are The Black Dagger Brotherhood. ( BDB)  
They are warriors out to keep the vampire civilians in the mortal world safe from Lessers ( slayers who make Buffy look like Barbie with a nail file)
Mr X has worked his way up the pecking order and runs the Lessers. The Omega, if you are a Lesser, you never want to meet. The Omega a mystical figure has targeted the vampires for extinction.
The Lessers were once human but give their souls to join and fight/kill vampires always torturing for intel. 

Each of  BDB books are directed at a character. Dark Lover is Wraths story. These are very manly guys you wouldn't want to be on their bad side. The books are quite erotically written when it comes to the smexi scenes, so hold on to your seats.

Dark Lover has Wrath discovering himself , allowing for himself to be happy and what is right for the Brotherhood and vampires.

Beth gets swept up rather dizzingly fast into the vampire world with her good friend Butch a gritty cop.  I love the way J.R Ward can show the warriors otherside. I felt for Zsadist virtually the minute I met him. Tohrment I would trust with my life.

I really enjoyed 'Dark Lover' and 'Lover Eternal' I thought was better. You would have to read in order , currently 9 books in series. I can't wait for Zsadist's story.

I love the names that J.R Ward has thought up for the warriors. Brilliant!! You wouldn't want to meet these guys in a dark alley, but if you are their 'Shellan', well read on........
