Dark Lover

In the shadows of the night in Caldwell, New York, there's a deadly turf war going on between vampires and their slayers. There also exists a secret band of brothers like no other - six vampire warriors, defenders of their race. Among them, none 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 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…

Series: Black Dagger Brotherhood
Happening: Wrath's story, book 1
Author: J.R Ward
Pages: 396

The vampire star of this first installment in the series is Wrath. Wrath is a pure blooded vampire, and this is an incredible rarity in the world he lives in (which by the way, our world, although I doubt anyone I know has ever seen a 6'9 "vampire with long black hair and glasses to hide his almost total blindness). Wrath is cruel and deadly. Merely walking into a bar making sure he gets souls to freeze around him.

Wrath ends up as the leader of the Black Dagger Brotherhood, an ancient group of warriors who protect their race from their mortal enemy, Lesser, who live only to kill vampires. The other warriors Thorment,  Rhage, Zsadist, his twin Phury, Vishous and with Wrath they keep their world safe.

But this is a romance, so it must be a woman in it, and her name is Beth Randall, the half human/half-vampyr daughter of Wrath's other warrior, Darius. Before Darius dies, he asks Wrath to help his daughter through her transition to being a vampire, but he is told no. But when he dies, Wrath himself feel he has to obliged to ensure that his friend's daughter is taken care of. And take care of her, he does.

The romance and sex in this first Brotherhood book is quite enjoyable. Wrath is impressive and Beth are well suited to him.
Ward definitely knows how to write a steamy sexy scene.

Dark Lover is a very good first book of the Black Dagger Brotherhood series. As an introduction to the series, it does its job well. I definitely wanted to read more. She includes a non-human vampire in this book, Butch, and it makes this series more interesting aspect of this book, he lives with warriors, especially the one called Vishous.

The next person in the series are: Rhage, the most beautiful warrior and the one with the worst demon inside him.

I LOVE LOVE LOVE this series!!

Recommend to anyone over 18 to read this!! This book is the actual age of the United States. It has something to do sex scenes! But I, as a poor housewife,  now love housewife porn as every housewife! 

The Cover is HOT!

I give this book a 6 of 6
