In this sexy paranormal romance novel set in the world of the Black Dagger Brotherhood, number-one New York Times best-selling author J. R. Ward tells the story of two couples - both fighting to find love in the midst of the war with the Lessening Society.

A vampire aristocrat, Peyton is well aware of his duty to his bloodline: mate with an appropriate female of his class and carry on his family's traditions. And he thought he'd found his perfect match - until she fell in love with someone else. Yet when his split-second decision in a battle with the enemy endangers the life of another trainee, Peyton has to face the idea that his future, and his heart, actually lie with another.

Novo, as a female in the Black Dagger Brotherhood's training program, feels like she has to prove herself to everybody - and she has no interest in being distracted by falling in love. But when Peyton proves to be so much more than a rich playboy, she is forced to confront the tragedy that has broken her soul and closed her off from love.

As the two grapple with Novo's past and Peyton's present, another couple must contend with an erotic connection that is unparalleled - and potentially scandalous. Saxton, who has had his heart broken, discovers in himself a deep-seated attraction to Ruhn, a new member of the household. But will the other male explore the connection? Or will he close his mind and his heart to what could be true love...and cost Saxton everything?


I received a complimentary copy of this audiobook for voluntary review consideration.

This was another very enjoyable installment in the Black Dagger Legacy series!

Novo is a kick-ass female, and I've so been looking forward to reading her story! My heart broke after learning about her past, and I'd love to give her sister a piece of my mind! Thankfully, Peyton already did that. I wasn't sure about Novo's pairing with Peyton, but I've warmed to the idea now after learning more about him as well. At the outset, he is still pining over Paradise but he can't deny his attraction to Novo. 

I have been very intrigued with Ruhn, and I like him with Saxton. Minnie is just an absolute doll, and I just loved her reaction to learning about Ruhn's and Saxton's relationship. She is a total gem, and I hope we'll see more of Minnie and her granddaughter in this series.

Memorable quote:

Jim Frangione is always a delight to listen to. He is one of my favourite narrators, and I will also buy the audio versus the printed books of this series just because I love his narration! Here is a sample of the narration:


4 stars!! It was really good, and you should put it on your TBR list if you enjoy paranormal romances.

  1. I'm a big fan of the BDB books and I do have the first one in this spin-off series but I've yet to read it. Maybe I should do it sooner than later!
