Why do I have it? I like paranormal romance and J. R. Ward is a new author for me.

For my #4 challenge (Color Word in Title), I read Dark Lover by J.R. Ward. This is the first novel of the Black Dagger Brotherhood Series, so I read it for my #4 challenge. This is the story of Wrath - the last purebred vampire left on earth and King of his people. He is the essentially blind leader of a band of six lethal warriors known as the Black Dagger Brotherhood. Together, these warriors hunt the Lessening Society - the soulless vampire slayers who murdered Wrath's parents centuries ago.

Wrath is stunned when a fellow warrior - Darius - asks him to protect and guide Darius' halfbreed daughter - a supposed orphan - into a heritage of which she has no knowledge. Beth Randall has been suffering inexplicable chills and hunger pangs that she cannot satisfy. She also can not deny the instant attraction she feels for Wrath when she meets him. Now, as Beth nears the precipice of her change the only one who can help her is Wrath. I loved this paranormal romance debut from a terrific author and will be looking for more books from this series. I give it an A+!

A+! - (96-100%)

May you read well and often
