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?
“He wasn’t mine then,” Saxton choked out. “When we started…he wasn’t yet mine.”
With Ward’s spin-off from the Black Dagger Brotherhood, Black Dagger Legacy, we continue to get to see the newest generation of fighters who want to save their race from the Lessening Society. The legacy books are pretty basic compared to its counter part. There is so much going on with in the BDB series that you have to follow along and know what’s what. With the BDL books, it’s just a couple and their journey to happiness (whatever that may be). I really love that she gave us these books. We have so many more characters to fall in love with and so much more time with the ones we have loved all along. These couples in this latest installment made for one addicting read and an amazing addition to the Black Dagger Legacy series.
Saxton has broken my heart since the fall out of his relationship with Blay. I didn’t like those two together but I always liked Saxton. Watching his relationship with Ruhn grow was worth the wait. Even though this series is supposed to be the original BDB guys and the new recruits, I think it was prefect to have Saxton’s story in this series. His would have been over shadowed in the BDB series and I really did not want that to happen to him.
Peyton comes into his own in this book and for me I couldn’t get enough of it. Peyton was the one I have been waiting for since Blood Kiss. He peaked my interest then and I have been dying to get more. Novo was everything and so much more than I expected. I would have liked to have seen more about her needs for the club she went to but with everything else I get why we didn’t.
I’ve had so many people ask me when should these start these books. Even though this is a separate series and it could possibly stand on its own. I truly think these books would mean so much more to you if would have read the books in the BDB series at least through all the ones named Lover ______ . After that she kinda revisits some old characters and some side characters get a story too. So with the start of The King you could jump into these at any time. I’ve loved all of these books, some more than others, but they all are amazing and at the top of Paranormal Romance recommendations.
Blood Fury is a journey of overcoming and moving on, starting fresh and finding your voice. It’s emotional and full of the trade mark humor we have come to know and love from Ward. I couldn’t get enough of this book.
“You take my breath away. Now…and forever more.”
