Book Review: Dark Lover by  J. R. Ward (2005).

Blurb

The only purebred vampire left on the planet and the leader of the Black Dagger Brotherhood, Wrath has a score to settle with the slayers who killed his parents centuries ago. But when his most trusted fighter is killed—orphaning a half-breed daughter unaware of her heritage or her fate—Wrath must put down his dagger and usher the beautiful female into another world.

Racked by a restlessness in her body that wasn’t there before, Beth Randall is helpless against the dangerously sexy man who comes to her at night with shadows in his eyes. His tales of the Brotherhood and blood frighten her. Yet his touch ignites a dawning new hunger—one that threatens to consume them both…

Review

A great beginning to a romantic Vampire series, Dark Lover is a great read for those who enjoy Romance novels but are also interested in the Vampire genre.  J. R. Ward has put together some really unusual characters and flipped their world’s upside down to produce an enthusiastic sexually charged story that keeps readers wanting more!

The concept of Vampires is new to some characters and they are thrown in the deep end when it comes to being introduced into an entirely different world and new way of living. However harrowing this turns out to be, there is a constant undercurrent of love and loyalty, as well as strange sense of safety. There is also humour, which sets of some of the more difficult and serious situations, and comes off In a way that gives the characters depth.

Although there are some very hot sex scenes, there is always love behind it, which steers the story away from a XXX rating. The love story of Beth and Wrath Is a story that Is worth the read. Although I have to admit that it could have been written in a different story rose with a better vocabulary for the characters, but I guess without it the characters don’’t quite have the same appeal.

Overall I believe Dark Lover to be a fair beginning of what appears to be a fast paced action packed series. I would recommend it to anyone interested In Vampires, especially those who like their romance. I give the book a rating of 5/10 stars.
