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.
