A vampire aristocrat, Peyton is well aware of his duty to his bloodline: mate with an appropriate female of his class and carry on his family’s traditions. And he thought he’d found his perfect match—until she fell in love with someone else. Yet when his split-second decision in a battle with the enemy endangers the life of another trainee, Peyton has to face the idea that his future, and his heart, actually lie with another.
Novo, as a female in the Black Dagger Brotherhood’s training program, feels like she has to prove herself to everybody—and she has no interest in being distracted by falling in love. But when Peyton proves to be so much more than a rich playboy, she is forced to confront the tragedy that has broken her soul and closed her off from love.
As the two grapple with Novo’s past and Peyton’s present, another couple must contend with an erotic connection that is unparalleled—and potentially scandalous.
Saxton, who has had his heart broken, discovers in himself a deep-seated attraction to Ruhn, a new member of the household. But will the other male explore the connection? Or will he close his mind and his heart to what could be true love . . . and cost Saxton everything?
Peyton, son of Peythone, is having trouble living up to his sire’s expectations. As part of the glymera, he was supposed to fall in line but instead ended up in the Brotherhood’s training program. He mistakenly thought his heart belonged to a female mated to another but there is something about the heat hidden behind Novo’s eyes that sets his blood on fire.
Something about her brought out the animal in him, ever since the first night he’d seen her. He didn’t want to make love to her. He wasn’t even interested in sex from her. He wanted straight-out fucking, the kind that left marks on skin, and ruined furniture, and broke lamps.
There wasn’t enough money in the world to make Novo hang out with pretty boy Peyton. His perfect upbringing and even more perfect face makes her want to shank more than just a few lessers.
But when one mistake in the field lands her flat on her back in the training center’s clinic, she no longer has the strength to deny the raging desire that threatens to consume them both.
“I’m hungry,” she growled.
Saxton watched from the shadows as all of those around him found happiness in love. Even the one warrior that he desperately wanted to call his own.
Nearly overcome with loneliness, he plans to quietly slip away. Until one fateful Last Meal changed everything.
Although the male’s physical assets were legion, he had not given any indication that he was sexually open to or even aware of males—or anyone else, for that matter. And knowing the way the universe ran? Ruhn was utterly heterosexual, and God knew Saxton was beyond over wanting things he couldn’t have---
Ruhn came to live with the Brotherhood when his niece, Bitty was adopted by Rhage and Mary. He feels completely out of place amongst the extravagant furnishings of the aristocracy and the intense gaze of the Blind King’s solicitor.
The sophisticated and wealthy Saxton could never feel anything for an illiterate nobody with a tragic past. And the more time that he spends in his company, the more the forbidden calls his name.
Later, Ruhn would wonder where the courage came from. Where the honesty did. The answer to that, when it occurred to him, was both simple and profound: Love had wings that demanded flight.
Blood Fury is the book that all fans of Saxton have been waiting for and J.R. Ward delivers it in unmatched form! Her wry humor and hard-hitting prose command your absolute attention. And the culminating heartbreak, surrender and vengeance is felt like a shot right to the chest.
It’s this flawless combination of the Old and New School BDB that makes this series an absolute must read – every single time…
