With this fifth installment of the paranormal romance series Black Dagger Brotherhood, J.R. Ward continues to mesmerize her audience with these multi-layered tales of seductive vampires and immortal intrigue. In Lover Unbound, a murderous vampire Vishous lands in the care of, if not the embrace of, a human surgeon.

Cold and emotionless, Vishous has until this point only lived to avenge the death of his family. His childhood haunts him, and, as the son of a Bloodletter in his father's war camp, he plans revenge with an order of death to the vampire-hunting Lessening Society. That is, until the mortal doctor Jane Whitcomb tends to his wounds.

What begins as a healing on the physical plane soon extends its tender reach to soulful pleasures, that of which Vishous could have never before imagined.

J. R. Ward is the pen name for Jessica Rowley Pell Bird for her paranormal romance series. She uses her maiden name Jessica Bird for romance novels. Her relationship with writing began when she was a young girl, scribbling thoughts and musings in her diaries alongside short stories. Before she went to college, she wrote her first romance novel. Continuing to write during school, she majored in art history, concentrating on the medieval period. Later she received a law degree and was employed in healthcare administration. Once married, her husband encouraged her to publish her work. She enjoys writing series novels which tie together characters of previous stories.

The ruthless and brilliant brother Vishous possesses a destructive curse and a frightening ability to see the future. As a member of the Brotherhood, he has no interest in love or emotion, only the battle with the Lessening Society. But when a mortal injury puts him in the care of a human surgeon, Dr. Jane Whitcomb compels him to reveal his inner pain and taste true pleasure for the first time-until a destiny he didn’t choose takes him into a future that does not include her.

    " Oh my gosh! Cannot wait to read the next one. usually I get bored with a long series, but this one I LOVE! "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Keeley | 2/17/2014

    " This was a good one but I'm not sure I liked the ending. I definitely liked looking into V's past and I liked Jane as a person, her intelligence and courage refreshing compared to marissas weaker will "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Tricia Lynne | 2/17/2014

    " My favorite book. Why are all the hard ones to write my favourite ones to read? "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 miss♥k | 2/9/2014

    " Although V got his happy ending (kind of, sort of) my heart still aches for him. So far he has fought harder and faced more barriers to happiness than any of the brothers. I loved that Jane was willing to give up all for him and accepted him for all that he was. And as much as unwanted to hate the Scribe Virgin, I understand now that she's as miserable as she deserves to be. Amazing story, writing, character development... It keeps getting better and better ! Moving on to Phury.. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Brad | 7/23/2011

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Alverna | 7/19/2011

    " Eh, I have to say V isn't my favorite character, and this book was my least favorite ending so far. That said, JR Ward is still the best plot lady in the business if you ask me! "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Dorothy | 5/23/2011

    " I liked this story. I wasn't expecting the ending at all. I had read other's reviews on how Vishous was cheated out of a mate, but I don't think that is true. Not only that, but we discover more about Vishous and his bizarre past and why he has not been seeing the future.

    "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Sara | 5/22/2011

    " I didn't really like the ending. It was just too out there, which is really saying something in a vampire series. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 D'mi | 5/19/2011

    " SPOILER ALERT: In my opinion, this is the best book of the series and I hate to admit this, but I compare the latest novels in the series to THIS book! It's just that good! Especially towards the ending when I actually got emotional while reading the shot scene. =P "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Aylene | 5/15/2011

    " I liked this one because AGAIN J.R Ward knows how to write a good book , But i hate the way things turned out. Even though they get to be together , it not how i want them together. Well Right now this is my least FAVE "
