Lover Eternal by J.R. Ward

Lover Eternal by J.R. Ward

In the shadows of the night in Caldwell, New York, there's a deadly turf war raging between vampires and their slayers. There exists a secret band of brothers like no other-six vampire warriors, defenders of their race. Possessed by a deadly beast, Rhage is the most dangerous of the Black Dagger Brotherhood.

Within the brotherhood, Rhage is the vampire with the strongest appetites. He's the best fighter, the quickest to act on his impulses, and the most voracious lover-for inside him burns a ferocious curse cast by the Scribe Virgin. Owned by this dark side, Rhage fears the time when his inner dragon is unleashed, making him a danger to everyone around him.

Mary Luce, a survivor of many hardships is unwittingly thrown into the vampire world and reliant on Rhage's protection. With a life-threatening curse of her own, Mary is not looking for love. She lost her faith in miracles years ago. But when Rhage's intense animal attraction turns into something more emotional, he knows that he must make Mary his alone. And while their enemies close in, Mary fights desperately to gain life eternal with the one she loves...

Hey! Here's my review.

This is the second book in the Black Dagger Brotherhood series. I like how this series is more than just a vampire romance story. It's not just shallow fluff, there is some depth in the issues.

This book focusses more on the vampire Rhage. He has been cursed over 100 years ago and has a symbiotic dragon beast inside him that comes out when he loses control. He falls in love with Mary, a human whose leukaemia is relapsing. I could relate well to Mary as we have both worked with people with autism and have a positive accepting attitude. The book finishes with a lead in to the next part of the story, so it won't be long until I pick up book 3.

  1. I feel so left out when it comes to this series. I've tried reading them a couple of times but I never really got into the series itself. Although, I did love Qhuinn and Blay's story.

    1. This is the first time reading it for me. I might get alpha male burnout soon.

  2. I haven't read this series yet, but it's on my wish list. I'm visiting as part of Parajunkee's blog challenge. If you'd like to check out my blog, you can visit it directly at From the Shadows or get a condensed version on my blog's shiny new Facebook Page. Hope to see you there!

    1. Just found you on Facebook. Be prepared for an overload of alpha male if you pick up this series!
