New Information on Lover Unleashed plus a UK Cover to Boot

**This post contains numerous spoilers since the book I will be talking about is #9 in the Black Dagger Brotherhood series. Read on your own risk**

Well first off, we got a title. Lover Unleashed. The first book that is mainly focused on a woman of the "Brotherhood". We also got a summary and even though we don't have a US cover, we have an UK cover.

Hardcover, 528 pages
Published March 29th 2011 by NAL Hardcover

Payne, twin sister of Vishous, is cut from the same dark, seductive cloth as her brother. Imprisoned for eons by their mother, the Scribe Virgin, she finally frees herself-only to face a devastating injury. Manuel Manello, M.D., is drafted by the Brotherhood to save her as only he can-but when the human surgeon and the vampire warrior meet, their two worlds collide in the face of their undeniable passion. With so much working against them, can love prove stronger than the birthright and the biology that separates them?

Now I found the next tip bit on a Facebook page and it goes like this:

"First, she announced today that it's called Lover Unleashed. Also, someone asked if the next book would be a little more lighthearted than Lover Mine. Here's the direct quote from Ward's post:

Oh God... no, it isn't... *sigh*

I was thinking of this yesterday while I was driving on the highway. I almost want to post a warning.


Man, sh*t gets really dark with him. The thing is, for all his brilliance, he's rigid. I guess I'm finally coming to understand that part of him now. It makes sense given how he was treated by his father between the age of three and his transition- but then afterward, with his hand and his predilictions, he cut himself off for eons.

Then Butch and Jane came along and he was able to open up- BUT, and this is the big problem, when the pressure gets really intense (like, oh, say, finding out you have a twin and wondering if she'll be paralized, and hating your mother AGAIN and learning secrets from the past- oh and BTW your sister who you love instantly is hanging out with a motherf***king HUMAN) he is reverting to a very icy, unreachable place- which effects his relationships with Jane and the cop badly.

I've seen what happens to get him out of it- but it's hardcore and likely going to disturb some folks. Right now, I'm trying to negotiate with him. Which is why he hates me and calls me a liar. Not sure how much I can show. I just hope folks stay with him."

Well I am okay with the whole dark twisty vibe. I am really curious as to what J. R. Ward is going to do with Manny, I mean, he is human... Is it going to come down to becoming a ghost again? Or what?

Also, not a big fan of the UK cover, but something is something and not being able to see yet the US cover is killing me!! I bet it will be great! Remember the cover of Lover Mine? YUM!


  1. The title of Lover Unleashed has been up on her website's chat room for over a month already but thanks for sharing the stuff that she said about V. V has always been my favorite and I loved Lover Unbound. I can't wait to read this one and see Payne's story and some more of V. Plus I agree with you that the US cover of Lover Mine was great, probably the best cover so far. :)

  2. I just love the Brothers! I can't wait to read the next installment. My favorite brothers are Z & V.


Read your opinion, I want. Leave a comment, you shall.
