There is currently no description available for this title at this time.
Newbies to Ward's Black Dagger Brotherhood may struggle to fill in the backstory, but these erotic paranormals are well worth it, and frighteningly addictive. The six "brothers" are vampires: enormous, tattooed, tormented warriors who protect other vampires from destruction by the "lessers," desouled humans in the evil Omega's Lessening Society. Hero and ex-cop Butch is the only human allowed into the Brotherhood's inner circle, but Butch is no mere human, a fact suspected by one of his vamp colleagues, and confirmed by the sinister plans of the Omega. The book is fully committed to its urban sensibility, the vampires' rarified language (a glossary is provided) and their revved-up sex drives, and it all works to great, page-turning effect (with the notable exception of a chick lit-like attention to designer brands). Though Butch's love interest, the virginal, aristocratic vampire Marissa, initially elicits more annoyance than empathy, she grows a spine as the book progresses and Butch's destiny comes to light. In just two years, the first three books in the series have earned Ward an Anne Rice-style following, deservedly so; this entry should prove no less popular. (Mar.)

2 . Lover Revealed
Posted May 16, 2010 by Della , MorrisI didn't read the books in order. I picked this up a t Wal-Mart. I'm so glad I did. I then went and bought all the others and just fell in love. This is the best series out there. I love this book, as I love all her books. I have my step daughter and best friend reading these.
We are all hooked. If you only read one book, make sure it's by J R Ward! The story of Butch is great...I've read this book like 6 times. We re-read while waiting for the new ones! If only she could write them faster... :) The Black Dagger Brotherhood takes you into a wonderful world and you can forget all your troubles for a while...
3 . Good book.
Posted May 16, 2009 by Dawn , SouthNot the best in the series but I really enjoyed it. Butch is a very likeable character and I've been captivated by him and Marissa's story for awhile.
