NEW YORK TIMES BESTSELLER • In an exclusive ebook novella set in the world of the Black Dagger Brotherhood, J. R. Ward tells the story of a fiery couple . . . doomed by an undeniable passion.
Features a special preview of J. R. Ward’s upcoming Black Dagger Brotherhood novel, The Thief!
The last place Ivie expects to be approached by a devastatingly handsome male is in a crowded, smoky cigar bar rarely frequented by vampires—yet here he stands. Silas is flirtatious, gallant, and, above all, mysterious. Ivie is anything but. A nurse at the healer’s clinic and the daughter of a biker, Ivie is accustomed to speaking her mind. So she does. Since aristocrats rarely pick up females of her class, Ivie asks Silas just what kind of game he thinks he’s playing.
Despite her guarded exterior, Ivie surrenders to the fierce desire she feels for Silas. And yet, just as their courtship is heating up, he reveals that it cannot last, for he is bound to return to the Old Country. Their bond only deepens as they make the most of their precious time together. But when she learns the truth, Ivie must find a saving grace—before all is lost. . . .
Praise for J. R. Ward’s Black Dagger Brotherhood series
“Tautly written, wickedly sexy, and just plain fun.”—Lisa Gardner
“Ward’s paranormal world is, among other things, colorful, dangerous, and richly conceived.”—RT Book Reviews
Not What I Was Expecting - Pure Fluff (but not in a bad way)
This is not what I was expecting at all. It’s a novella that stands completely on its own. There are no brothers in it. Wrath is mentioned, but we never see him. Doc Jane and Manny are in it, but that’s has close as we get to the brotherhood. There are no lessers. There is no war. This is purely a romance set in the world of the BDB, and Havers’s clinic.
I’ve read the BDB series in order, all in the last couple of months. I have liked a couple of the books a lot and loved most all of them with a passion, but this sweet piece of writing has made me laugh out loud and cry ugly. I don’t know how she does it, but it literally felt like I was a part of the story immersed in the emotions of Ivie. Thank you and please never stop writing.
This is a great short story in accumulation with the black dagger brotherhood series!
