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.Goodreads
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…
This one might be even better than Dark Lover. Rhage and Mary are dynamic and their passion for each other is amazing. They fight and don’t get along at first and you really see J.R. Ward’s talent for creating dynamic female characters. Mary doesn’t give in to Rhage like a lot of romance stories where the girl caves to the hot guy. She fights him tooth and nail and it makes their love even stronger!
Mary is also struggling with cancer and it really affects her ability to live her life. She doesn’t want to be protected because in her mind she has no chance of living anyway so she’s given up. Until the brother’s show her how to live again.
Rhage is struggling with his own curse where he shifts into a dragon-like creature and for some reason it reminded me of my own panic attacks. He can’t control it and it’s violent and Mary being a train therapist soothes him.
I’m more and more amazed by how equal J.R. Ward makes her relationships and I’m so deep into this universe I don’t want to come out.
