A vampire and a scientist’s fates are passionately entwined in a race against time in this thrilling romance in the #1 New York Times bestselling “utterly absorbing and deliciously erotic” (Angela Knight, New York Times bestselling author) Black Dagger Brotherhood series.
In the venerable history of the Black Dagger Brotherhood, only one male has ever been expelled—but Murhder’s insanity gave the Brothers no choice. Haunted by visions of a female he could not save, he nonetheless returns to Caldwell on a mission to right the wrong that ruined him. However, he is not prepared for what he must face in his quest for redemption.
Dr. Sarah Watkins, researcher at a biomedical firm, is struggling with the loss of her fellow scientist fiancé. When the FBI starts asking about his death, she questions what really happened and soon learns the terrible truth: Her firm is conducting inhumane experiments in secret and the man she thought she knew and loved was involved in the torture.
As Murhder and Sarah’s destinies become irrevocably entwined, desire ignites between them. But can they forge a future that spans the divide separating the two species? And as a new foe emerges in the war against the vampires, will Murhder return to his Brothers... or resume his lonely existence forevermore?
APPLE BOOKS REVIEW
Suspense, romance, and the supernatural collide in the 17th book in the Black Dagger Brotherhood series. Murhder has spent decades alone, isolated from his fellow vampire warriors. But when he finds out that members of his species are being cruelly experimented on by a biomedical firm, he teams up with a crusading doctor—and discovers she may also be the one who can heal his broken mind and capture his heart. Fans of J. R. Ward’s richly imagined paranormal world will be thrilled to see Murhder starring in his own book, while newcomers to the series will find Ward’s exquisite world-building easy to sink into.

One of my favs from the black dagger brotherhood! Can't wait to see what's next!
10 stars wouldn’t be enough!
JR Ward weaves a tale of mystery and suspense in every book about the Black Dagger Brotherhood and this one doesn’t disappoint! I only wish she could dream her stories faster! Thanks for the escape! For anyone who hasn’t read all the previous volumes,by all means start with the first because these characters will become a family of sorts! I’m about to start over just because these stories are in a class of their own!
