"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.
