Number-one New York Times best-selling author J.R. Ward's thrilling new novel in the Black Dagger Brotherhood series.
Payne, twin sister of Vishous, is cut from the same dark, seductive cloth as her brother. Imprisoned for eons by their mother, the Scribe Virgin, she finally frees herself - only to face a devastating injury.
Manuel Manello, M.D., is drafted by the Brotherhood to save her as only he can - but when the human surgeon and the vampire warrior meet, their two worlds collide in the face of their undeniable passion. With so much working against them, can love prove stronger than the birthright and the biology that separates them?
Keep chilled: listen to more titles in the Black Dagger Brotherhood series.

Once again the Warden does not disappoint. This book is in my Top 3 of the series... and that's saying something given all of the mouth-watering brothers. It is not just the writing, or the witty banter between the characters, or the love story that gets me..
What does it for me is her willingness to break the BDB wide open and pave the way for new characters, and I am not talking about Lessers. I have to say these new ones have the potential to be just as HOT as the Brothers. I can't wait to see where she takes us. She also backs away from characters that have been heavy hitters in other books and I believe it worked for her, although I am sure some would disagree.
In addition, I love V and she delves deeply into his life again. I know that the story is meant to be about Payne and Manny but he stole my heart. He is fierce and tortured as ever.. but IMO this level surpasses Lover Unbound.
If you are anxious for the hot and steamy, and I mean that literally you will be good to go... Chapter 43 is also one of my favorites.
Narration wise, I think this is Jim's best so far. It seems like he had more inflection and better tone which was made the audio-book rock.
I'm obsessed with audible
Another great installment in the series with (i hope) a promise of more to come. I think I'm also in love with Jim Frangione. He does a phenomenal job narrating this series! That coupled with the way Ward writes will always leave me coming back to the audio version to see "what's doing".
A mom, a wife, a friend, a happy ending addict, an audiobook junkie, a wine lover and geek wanna -be. I'm constantly looking to be blown away.
Jim Frangioni is fantastic!!! I love being back in the BDB's world, great addition to this series. JR Ward does it again.
Say something about yourself!
Talk about worlds colliding! I liked the arc of this story…the love scenes weren’t as steamy as in the past, but given the subject matter I guess I can understand. Still a great listen and it allowed me to tolerate my commute!
From the first word to the last a remarkable tale. J R Ward is the greatest. She brings each and every one of her characters to life or death if you will. Jim Frangione's timing in the narration is incredible and I recommend this book and all the previous books for anyone who enjoys escaping the norm and wrapping themselves in the warmth of a good story. Looking forward to the next book with anticipation, as well as her next book in the Fallen Angel series.
Following along with the Brotherhood is Mesmerizing & Attention Grabbing from the very first page. I would highly recommend starting at the very beginning of this addicting series so you can become enveloped in each Brothers story then getting to know them & getting lost in their world of adventure & magic!! My favorite Brother, Vishous, but they are all equally as mesmerizing in their own unique way!!
I am a complete fan of JR Ward and really enjoyed this story, but what makes these books great is the narration by Jim Frangione. He makes the characters come alive!! Please keep him on all future versions!!
