Black Dagger Brotherhood #1 Dark Lover


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 source-


WOW! that is the only word I can come up with for the first installment of The Black Dagger Brotherhood, Dark Lover. I am not a first book lover in a series, but this was one great start. Wrath, the leader of the Brotherhood was a magnificently well written character as well as all of the characters in this book.


J.R. Ward as spun a world of good versus evil, and love that makes hard unfeeling men soft and yielding. How can you not want want to be a part of a world like that?


The story is strong, the action is nail biting and the love sences are steamy. I say buckle up and enjoy the ride.
I can not wait for book number 2, Lover Eternal.
