Publisher's Summary

"The hottest collection of studs in romance" (New York Times best-selling author Angela Knight) returns as number-one New York Times best-selling author J. R. Ward brings together two of the most beloved people in the Black Dagger Brotherhood world - at last....

Qhuinn, son of no one, is used to being on his own. Disavowed from his bloodline, shunned by the aristocracy, he has finally found an identity as one of the most brutal fighters in the war against the Lessening Society. But his life is not complete. Even as the prospect of having a family of his own seems to be within reach, he is empty on the inside, his heart given to another....

Blay, after years of unrequited love, has moved on from his feelings for Qhuinn. And it's about time: The male has found his perfect match in a Chosen female, and they are going to have a young - just as Qhuinn has always wanted for himself. It's hard to see the new couple together, but building your life around a pipe dream is just a heartbreak waiting to happen. As he's learned firsthand.

Fate seems to have taken these vampire soldiers in different directions...but as the battle over the race's throne intensifies, and new players on the scene in Caldwell create mortal danger for the Brotherhood, Qhuinn finally learns the true definition of courage, and two hearts who are meant to be together...finally become one.

    "It just keeps getting better!"
    What made the experience of listening to Lover at Last the most enjoyable?

    By the time I got to the 11th book in this series it felt like all the Brothers were good friends and my emotional attachments to them made this one of the most enjoyable book in the series.


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    I'm going to go with the obvious, Quinn. Especially because he save the life of my favorite Brother.


    Have you listened to any of Jim Frangione’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    He did the whole series and I think he was an excellent choice. He, like the author, keep it pretty consistent.


    Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    First time in all my life I ever got hot over a male on male sex scene. Maybe it is because this love affair had been building for several books. Truthfully all the books in this series made me laugh and cry.


    Any additional comments?

    Such a great series and so well written. The writing style is fresh and different for this genre, she has a real solid point of view and every character is super cool. You know I can't say that every series that I have read, by whoever, continually puts out a good product after 11 books but I can surely say this about The Black Dagger Brotherhood. I can't wait for the next book in the series.

    "What's all the fuss about and high ratings?"
    This book wasn’t for you, but who do you think might enjoy it more?

    My personal belief is the book is way too long, story line since beginning of series has bogged down with the last 3 books.As far as the sex, way too much description of each and every act by the consenting partners no matter if is male with male or male with female. Give me a break, this is a adult series and as such we don't have to read about each and every movement or breath a human body makes during intimate relationships, please enough is enough.The narrator is wonderful hope he is never replaced. Will give the next book in the series a try, but should it follow along the same footsteps as this book it will be the end of the line for me with this series.


    What could J. R. Ward have done to make this a more enjoyable book for you?

    Way less sex, fewer story lines and more development of the story which deals with the many problems the brothers are facing that threatens their race.


    Have you listened to any of Jim Frangione’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    Yes. Never disappointed by his performance.


    If you could play editor, what scene or scenes would you have cut from Lover at Last?

    Too many to list.

    "It's about time"

    I have been following this series since the beginning. I have been rooting for Blay and Quinn for quite sometime. I spent have the book yelling in my head at the characters and the rest laughing. I don't want to say that the book was funny because it wasn't. It was just the giggling little girl thing. I loved this book and if you like this series you will love this book. my only question is... What happens next.

    "Wonderful Series"
    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    When the Blackdagger Brotherhood was recommended to me I thought I would not J.R. Ward's Fallen Angels series is very good. I expected it to be funnier after reading The Blackdagger Brotherhood, where the angel is hilarious.like it, based on title alone. I couldn't be more wrong! I instantly fell in love with the books!

    "Qhuinn's Story At Last"

    The Black Dagger Brotherhood is one of my favorite series of all time and of all genres. I think JR Ward is an exceptional writer and had created a complex and believable alternative universe. If you haven't read from the beginning I highly recommend it. Also, you might also want to check out Ward's other series the Fallen Angels that takes place in the same universe as this one and occasionally ties in.

    I was so pleased with this book came out. Finally, Qhuinn and Blaylock get their love story an their much deserved HEA. The internal conflict that Qhuinn overcomes is dealt with in a realistic and thoughtful manner.

    Any additional comments?

    Unlike the rest of the books where there may have been one open ended issue, this book really left you feeling like there were many open-ended issues. The book overall was great, love this series. Now sitting on the edge waiting for the next one. Also I like this reader he does a great job with the characters.

    "BLACK DAGGER BROTHERHOOD SERIES SOLD ME ON AUDIBLE"

    This is the best series on audible by far. If your into sexy alpha male vampires this is the series for you.
    Book 11 is about Quinn son of no one and his lover Blay and how both men must find there true identity not only in the brotherhood but all so out in the larger world before they can become as one. SPOILER ALERT If you as a reader LOVE hot guy on guy sex scenes with a little kink thrown in this is the novel for you.
    Jim Frangione narration for the whole series is Audible Oscar worthy. Audible should think about giving awards out to there top narrators without good narration the story is ruin.
    The Black Dagger Brotherhood series is number one on my top ten audible play list.
    To anyone who has not downloaded one of the books in the series give the boys a try and you will be hook just like me.

    Busy working mother and wife. I love the hot romances with happy endings. If I want to hear something depressing I will turn on the news.
