Reading Corner Friday ~ Lover Eternal by J.R. Ward

Welcome back readers!

Today I am sharing with you book two in the Black Dagger Brotherhood series. Lover Eternal follows Rhage, he is nicknamed Hollywood. He is a pretty boy but had a bad side to him that even he is afraid of.

He is one of the most deadliest fighters among the BDB (Black Dagger Brotherhood). He has been cursed for over two hundred year with a demon they call the beast. The beast sometimes has more control over him than he does himself.

The beast can cause a lot of chaos and pain wherever he goes. When the beast comes out to play it puts Rhage in major pain. When he finally meets Mary he thinks maybe he has found his mate, his love.

Mary is this bad ass and she works in the medical field which comes in handy for the BDB boys. Mary has a big role to play in Rhage’s life and the BDB’s life.

This story is sweet and romantic but towards the end it pulls at your heart strings and you are praying things turn out the way that you want it too.

Below I will show some fan art to go with Rhage and Mary along with a snippet from the book and links to J.R Wards website and a link to buy the series.

“You know, you were wrong, my brother.”
“Was I?”
“She is my destiny.”
“Did I say she wasn’t?”
“I am not her first lover. You told me my fate was a virgin. So you were wrong.”
“I am never wrong.”

Rhage frowned, rejecting out of hand the idea that some other female would be mean more to him or would take Mary’s place in his heart.

Man, fuck fate if it was going to try to make him love someone else. And to hell with V’s prognostications.

Within the Black Dagger Brotherhood, Rhage is the warrior vampire with the strongest appetites. He’s the deadliest fighter, the most voracious lover, the quickest to act on his impulses. He’s also been cursed with two hundred years of hell. Possessed by a beast, he lives in fear of the times when his inner dragon comes out and he’s a danger to everyone around him.
Mary Luce has unwittingly found herself in the vampire world, and under Rhage’s protection. With her own life-threatening curse to bear, she’s not looking for love. Besides, she’s stopped believing in saving grace and miracles long ago. But when Rhage’s intense sexual attraction turns into emotional bonding, he knows he must have her for his mate. As their enemies close in, Mary finds herself praying for something she fears she’ll never have: life eternal with the one she loves.
