Ward is at the top of her game with this, the second in the Black Dagger Legacy series, and there wasn’t a single one of her many storylines that I wanted to skip over. So in this novel we have in play Axe, a tough but wounded guy, and one of the trainees in the Brotherhood’s training classes for new soldiers. We also have Rhage and Mary, adjusting to new life adorably with their adopted teen, Bitty. And finally we have Elise, and member of the aristocracy, who is struggling to get out of her father’s restrictive traditionalism by earning her PhD.
I enjoyed spending time with all these folks, and we still had fights and romance galore. Excellent installment in the series from Ward. For 18 and up.
A solid anthology, with some great short stories from the worlds of Sookie Stackhouse, Harry Dresden, the Morganville Vampires, and Women of the Otherworld. All the authors were given the topic of vampires and birthdays, and the results range from humorous to bleak, from light-hearted to disturbing. If you’re a vampire fan, this is your anthology. For 16 and up, but most are targeted at adult readers.
Another steamy entry in the Black Dagger Brotherhood. I was delighted to find that this one focused on Rhage, one of the BD Brothers, and his formerly human wife, Mary. Despite their continued love for each other, they have grown apart, with her focused on her social work and with him focused on a peculiar dissatisfaction that has come over him.
This has everything BDB fans like: the original Brotherhood, supportive and caring about each other, steamy bedroom scenes between loving lead characters, and battles with the BDB’s arch-enemy, the Lessers. It also advances the overall plot and brings in a new character or two. A great read – for 18 and up.
This terrific, and heartbreaking, paranormal romance, was a real change for the series. I cried through part of this book, and its primary romance is simply terrific. As ever, there are numerous other subplots, both romances and set-ups for future stories. All were welcome. This is one of my favorites in the series. Ward only gets better. 18 and up.
