With the war between vampires and those who would slay them heating up; the last thing the Blind King needed was to be charged with overseeing the transformation of a half-breed. The downloadable audiobook Dark Lover: The Black Dagger Brotherhood, Book 1 is the first in the series about a different breed of vampire by author J.R. Ward.

When Wrath takes on this chore for love of his brother vampire Darius, he unexpectedly finds himself falling under the beautiful girl's spell. Beth never knew her real father; when she is visited by this tantalizing man who calls himself her father's friend and a vampire, she has no idea what she can believe. Leading the Black Dagger Brotherhood of vampires has never been a job that Wrath desired. However, the loss of his parents to the slayers and his heritage demand he pick up the mantle and be king.

Wrath must help Beth through the violent transition that will make her a vampire and end her feelings of being alone in the world. Along with his warrior brothers; he seeks revenge for the death of her father Darius and his slain parents at the hands of their supernatural enemies. Through vivid detail, the author leads us into the realm of a type of a monster we have never before experienced. These are tattooed, leather-wearing vampires who live in the modern hi-tech world of computers, and utilize weapons along with their fists and fangs when in battle. With their beloved mates and mystical deity, the Scribe Virgin; these muscle-bound dark warriors work to defeat their ancient enemy, The Omega and his lessening society.

J. R. Ward went through a number of professions before finding her niche as one of the best-selling authors of paranormal romance today. A law school graduate, she worked in the healthcare industry serving as Chief of Staff at a major medical center. Her passion for writing started as child with short stories and notes in her diary. In 2007 she was awarded the RITA Award for Best Short Contemporary Romance by the Romance Writers of America. These days she resides in the south with her husband and Golden Retriever.

The first novel of J. R. Ward’s New York Times bestselling Black Dagger Brotherhood series features a unique take on vampire lore and heavy doses of sensuality.

The vampire Darius fears for the life of his half-breed daughter, who is unaware of her unusual destiny. To oversee her transformation, Darius seeks help from Wrath, a dangerous loner and the world’s only purebred vampire.

    " This is by far, still my favorite of the BDB books. There are others that run a close second and J.R. Ward is still one of my favorite authors, so to put this one first is a real statement for me. She sucks you in from the first page and makes you continue to love Wrath and Beth well into the latest edition of this series. Well worth the time investment. WARNING - once you read this one, you will have to read them all!! Welcome to the brotherhood. "
