Reading Corner Friday – Dark Lover by J.R. Ward

Welcome back readers!

Today I am super excited to share with you another J.R. Ward book. This book is the first in 15…no…16 books in this series alone. There is also a book in between the lot of them where the author “interviews” the characters. It’s amazing because if you’re like me, then when you read stories you love you feel like these characters are real and they are your friends. So it was a really neat thing to read.

So back to the book, Dark Lover is the first installment and the main character is not only the head honcho of the story but a complete bad ass. This story follows the Blind King on an adventure to find his dead best friends half daughter Beth, who might be turning into a vampire soon. 

He obviously falls in love with her, from the moment he lays eye on her he wants to do more than just talk. Beth gets brought into this crazy world of Vampires and Lessers. She doesn’t know what to make of it all and she’s confused and terrified. I mean who wouldn’t be. She gets over that sooner or later and gives into this world.

Lessers are slayers of the Lessening Society. They sell their souls to basically the evilest entity and they hunt vampires and try to rid them from the earth. They do a pretty darn good job at it too.

The Black Dagger Brotherhood is a group of dangerous and large Vampires. They are larger than normal vampires and stronger too. This is why they were selected to be in the group. Unfortunately they all have some horrible pasts and some very real current demons holding them back. They all find love and that helps them out a lot…you’ll find that out later though.

So go and buy the first book. You’re welcome. LOL.

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 a 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…
