NEW YORK TIMES BESTSELLER • J. R. Ward returns with an all-new tale of paranormal passion in the world of the Black Dagger Brotherhood.

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.

Review:

This is a go to series for me so it is not surprising that I really enjoyed this book.  I was pleased with the different story line.  I really am enjoying the relationship story lines that have been taking place in the Black Dagger Legacy Books.  While there was some story about the Lessers it was much less in this story and it was a welcome break for me.

I was thrilled to have more of Bitty’s story with Rhage and Mary.  It was awesome to see the transformation this little family is going through.  I felt that it was well developed and it was a believable reflection.  Rhage has grown so much in the last few books and it is interesting to see how ary and Bitty have impacted this.

I really like the parts of this story that reflect what is going on with the next generation of the Black Dagger Brotherhood.  Axe and Elise’s relationship is as drama filled as the rest of the brother’s and they found their person.  The pain and stress they are both going through adds to the story.

As always, I listened to this book from Audible.  I am so glad that the same narrators has done this entire series.  I could not imagine it being anyone else.

Overall, I really enjoyed the book and I am looking forward to the next.

Overboard by Roxanne D. Howard

Excerpt:

Piper released the docking line from its cleat on the back of the cruiser yacht.

“Last line’s cast off, Jack,” she called over her shoulder. He hollered back in response,

and she took one last look at the pretty shoreline of Catalina Island. In stressful times,

there were certain places one could visit in one’s imagination, special memories that

brought peace or a wistful smile to one’s face when the sights, smells, and tastes were

recalled. Catalina would forever be such a place for her, wherever her road in life with

Jack took her.

She turned around and walked through the semishade of the deck lounge to the

helm where Jack stood and checked their bearings. A pleasant warmth spread inside her

at the sight of his impressive muscular frame beneath the outline of his loose white shirt.

She rubbed a little hand sanitizer into her palms as he reversed out of the dock. He

glanced at her, and she kissed his cheek. “Greatest holiday ever. Thank you for

kidnapping me. Now, back to reality.”

Jack’s thick brown hair lifted with the light breeze as he turned the boat. “Bah.

Reality’s overrated. I did a sweep of the entire yacht, every nook and cranny. I’m pleased

to report no runaway convicts or stowaways aboard.”

“Thank God. Though I have to admit, Diego did give the trip a lot more

excitement than it would have had without him.”

“Oh, come on. Is sex with me really that bad?”

She shook her head and grinned. “Yes. Anyway, we’ll have to send him a cupcake

in prison when we get back.”

“As long as it doesn’t have a nail file in it.” He winked. “I love it when you wear

your curls loose, by the way. It looks nice.”

She rewarded him with a radiant smile. He’d made it his mission to please her in

every possible way since they’d come to Catalina, and it left her feeling pampered and

relaxed. “Thank you. I like the open-throated pirate look on you.”

“I wonder why.”

“No idea.” She slid her palm over the warm flesh of his broad chest.

He kept his gaze on the ocean but rubbed the tops of her fingers with his free hand.

“The waves are calm today. I didn’t expect that. Ready for your New Year’s

broadcast tonight?”

“As ready as I’ll ever be, I guess. I’ve watched the ball drop on TV, but I’ve never

taken part in a countdown before. We’ll broadcast intermittently, but it’s still pretty

exciting. You’ll come to the company get-together before my segment, right?”

“Of course. Wouldn’t miss it. You’ll do great, Piper.”

She made a face. “We’ll see. I’ll do better with you there, even if it’s off to the

side. After how blissful it’s been the last couple days, I don’t want to separate and go

back to the real world just yet.”

He met her eyes. “Who says we have to?”

She kissed him and cupped his jaw with her palm. It was remarkable how a love

you didn’t know was absent from your life could enter and take it over so completely and

in the best of ways. She drew back. “You gonna let me steer again? I promise not to

crash.”

The corner of his mouth tilted up, and he reached over to a peg near the helm and

took down his white captain’s hat. He fitted it onto her head and gave her a little salute.

“Ship’s all yours, Cap’n.”

He stepped aside, and she took the wheel.

“Very good, Mr. Spencer. How does the hat look?”

“It looks yare.”

She laughed. “Now there’s a word I haven’t heard in a long time. Isn’t it from that

old Katherine Hepburn movie? I didn’t think people still said it.”

His finger stroked down the length of her arm as she steered, and a sweet tingle

spread through her body at the featherlight touch.

“My dad was old-school, and he liked to turn a good phrase or two. I’m serious. I

like the cap on you. I’d love to see what you look like in it and nothing else.”

Her pussy tightened at the raw need in his gaze, and she grew wet. “Be careful

what you wish for, Captain Spencer. You just might get it. Take over the wheel for a

second. I need some water. Are you thirsty? Can I get you a glass?”

He took the wheel from her, and his eyes gleamed with lust. “Yeah.”

She skimmed her fingers along his and rounded the corner to the kitchenette area.

She poured a glass of water from a gallon container and toyed with a wicked idea. Over

the past few days, she’d learned she could be as playful as she wanted with Jack, and he

responded precisely how she needed him to. She looked down and tugged at her nipples,

the mental image he’d painted just a moment ago fresh in her mind.

She bit her lip and set the water down as her pussy throbbed. She ran her hand

between her legs to soothe the ache. She shed her shirt and the rest of her clothes and left

them in a pile on the wooden floor. Her body had grown attuned to his, and she needed

his touch.

They’d made love once this morning when they awoke, but they were alone out

here on the open sea. Her time in Catalina with Jack had taught her that if she asserted

herself and showed him what she wanted, he gave it back to her tenfold. And right now,

she was ready for it.

She fixed the brim of Jack’s captain’s hat over her brow, picked up the glass of

water, and sashayed toward the helm. She cleared her throat. “Would you like your water

now?”
