The first novel of J. R. Ward's New York Times bestselling Black Dagger Brotherhood series features a unique take on vampire lore and heavy doses of sensuality. The vampire Darius fears for the life of his half-breed daughter, who is unaware of her unusual destiny. To oversee her transformation, Darius seeks help from Wrath, a dangerous loner and the world's only purebred vampire.
In the days when I had 16 years, Farrah Fawcett hair, and leg warmers, my friends and I spent hours dividing potential boyfriends into categories of good and evil. We were like ruthless versions of the Angel Gabriel, though our goal was not to banish, but to lure, sinners -- the restless bad boys, the ones who ranged through high school looking for sex and trouble. I scored for the prom: My date had loose black curls, a pair of leather pants, and was voted best dancer in the senior class. He even had a red car. He was pure, addictive testosterone in a youthful package.
