"another riveting and enthralling tale"

In the latest of Ward's wildly popular and award-winning Black Dagger Brotherhood series, we finally learn the story of the much tormented Brother, Vishous. It seems his whole life has been one of pain, sacrifice, and loneliness. Raised in a world without love by the only parent he ever knew, the sadistic and infamous, Bloodletter. Thanks to his "father," he learned to shut off his emotions and to not care about anything or anyone. His sole purpose in life is to destroy the Society of the Lessers, the undead enemy of the vampires race. But now V's learned that he has a new purpose -- he's been selected to become the Primale for the Chosen. Never to have a mate of his own, but instead he's to help "breed" more warriors for his kind in order to keep them from becoming extinct. Until one fateful night when a gunshot wound gets him sent to the trauma unit at St. Francis where he meets a very human trauma surgeon who will save more than just his life.

Jane Whitcomb is a brilliant surgeon. But she, too, grew up in a family of little love and much loss. Alone in the world now, all she wants is to head her own hospital department. Her work is her life -- until the night a gunshot victim shows up in her ER.

Ward pens yet another riveting and enthralling tale of love, loss, & sacrifice in Lover Unbound. I truly believe that this is one of the best, if not THE best, vampire series out right now. Her writing never ceases to amaze me and I relish every chance I get to lose myself in the exciting and sensuous world that she's created. She manages to suck the reader in to her world within only a couple of pages and you can almost guarantee that fate won't let the hero and heroine have their happily-ever- after without having to "sacrifice" for their love. But what you don't know is the how and this is where Ward truly is a master of the genre.

In the shadows of the night in Caldwell, New York, there’s a deadly war raging between vampires and their slayers. And there exists a secret band of brothers like no other—six vampire warriors, defenders of their race. Now, the cold heart of a cunning predator will be warmed against its will…

Ruthless and brilliant, Vishous son of the Bloodletter possesses a destructive curse and a frightening ability to see the future. As a pretrans growing up in his father's war camp, he was tormented and abused. As a member of the Brotherhood, he has no interest in love or emotion, only the battle with the Lessening Society. But when a mortal injury puts him in the care of a human surgeon, Dr. Jane Whitcomb compels him to reveal his inner pain and taste true pleasure for the first time- until a destiny he didn't choose takes him into a future that cannot include her.
