Book Blurb : Taken From Goodreads

Payne, twin sister of Vishous, is cut from the same dark, warrior cloth as her brother: A fighter by nature, and a maverick when it comes to the traditional role of Chosen females, there is no place for her on the Far Side… and no role for her on the front lines of the war, either.

When she suffers a paralyzing injury, human surgeon Dr. Manuel Manello is called in to treat her as only he can- and he soon gets sucked into her dangerous, secret world. Although he never before believed in things that go bump in the night- like vampires- he finds himself more than willing to be seduced by the powerful female who marks both his body and his soul.

As the two find so much more than an erotic connection, the human and vampire worlds collide … just as a centuries old score catches up with Payne and puts both her love and her life in deadly jeopardy.

J.R . Ward, aka The Warden , does it again. She hits every one of my smexi nerves, she takes the reader where not a lot of authors can go successfully time and time again. Book after book 10/10, J. R. I bow to your gift.

I’m so glad J.R. wasn’t done with Vishous’s story. He still has so many layers to peel back and did she peel each layer painstakingly back. ‘Ouch’!!

I always felt there was something spesh about Manuel Manello. Built like John Cena . I was just waiting to be told. Oh dear Lord, did J.R. deliver with Manny and Payne. * fans oneself repeatedly*

Quinn...dear Quinn..... come on J.R. give the poor guy a break. He needs his story with .....

Butch... what a manly, strong, understanding, step up to the plate bat in hand ready to do what needs to be done, guy. Oh ! Be still my heart, his relationship with Vishous. Grab the Kleenex, let’s all sit in our pj’s and have a cry.

I did admittedly miss the other brothers and their smaller roles in the books.

I loved Manny , Vishous and Butch’s dialogue, straight up, in your face, take no crap that earns you respect.

Goodness me.... Xcor and Throe. J.R. knows how to step up the smexi, my eyes personally boggled...lol!!! The story line was sizzling like a piece of bacon.

The way J.R. is writing , I think book # 10 is going to bring a heat wave.

Hot Tamale alert!!!! Keep these books away from the younger chickens, only for the adults.

If you haven’t yet picked up a BDB book ( Black Dagger Brotherhood) then you are sorely missing out, seriously....just open up book # 1 ‘Dark Lover’ , and let the story course through your veins .....



  1. Yaaaaayyyyy!! I'm so happy you loved it! This was most definitely V's story and it was awesome!! And we all know how I feel about Butch. My boy is made of all kinds of awesome...sigh....

  2. 'Hi girls..* air Hi 5* to another successful BDB book. Butch is made of the awesomesauce. Bring on # 10.

    Oh Lisa did I looovvveee it!! * waggles eyebrows*
