Waiting on Wednesday: Blood Vow by J.R. Ward

Waiting On Wednesday is a weekly event hosted by Jill at Breaking the Spine which spotlights eagerly anticipated upcoming releases!

J.R. Ward's writing is addictive as hell and I'd probably read a grocery list if she published one, but the Black Dagger Brotherhood has a special place in my heart. Last year I was thrilled when I heard she was doing a spinoff series that would be paranormal romance. Not only did Blood Kiss, the first Black Dagger Legacy book, not disappoint, it was one of my top reads of 2015. So of course the second book, Blood Vow, is my Waiting on Wednesday pick this week. I cannot wait to see what Ms. Ward has in store for Axe, Elise, Rhage, and Mary!

Book Description (from Amazon):

The Black Dagger Brotherhood continues to train the best of the best to join them in the deadly battle against the Lessening Society. Among the new recruits, Axe proves to be a cunning and vicious fighter—and also a loner isolated because of personal tragedy. When an aristocratic female needs a bodyguard, Axe takes the job, though he’s unprepared for the animal attraction that flares between him and the one he is sworn to protect.

For Elise, who lost her first cousin to a grisly murder, Axe’s dangerous appeal is enticing—and possibly a distraction from her grief. But as they delve deeper into her cousin’s death, and their physical connection grows into so much more, Axe fears that the secrets he keeps and his tortured conscience will tear them apart.

Rhage, the Brother with the biggest heart, knows all about self-punishing, and he wants to help Axe reach his full potential. But when an unexpected arrival threatens Rhage and Mary’s new family, he finds himself back in the trenches again, fighting against a destiny that will destroy all he holds most dear.

As Axe’s past becomes known, and fate seems to be turning against Rhage, both males must reach deep—and pray that love, rather than anger, will be their lantern in the darkness.
