Book Dark  LoverThis podcast is
brought to you by Signet, publisher of J.R. Ward’s Dark
, the first Black Dagger Brotherhood
—now with a hot new look! Available
where books are sold.

In the shadows of the night in Caldwell, New York,
there’s a deadly turf war going on between vampires
and their slayers. There also exists a secret band of
brothers like no other – six vampire warriors, defenders of
their race. Among them, none relishes killing their enemies
more than Wrath, the leader of the Black Dagger

The only pure-bred vampire left on the planet, Wrath
has a score to settle with the slayers who murdered his
parents centuries ago. But when one of his most trusted
fighters is killed – orphaning a half-breed daughter
unaware of her heritage or her fate – Wrath must usher the beautiful female into the world of the undead…

Racked by a restlessness in her body that
wasn’t there before, Beth Randall is helpless against
the dangerously sexy man who comes to her at night with
shadows in his eyes. His tales of brotherhood and blood
frighten her.

But his touch ignites a dawning hunger that threatens
to consume them both…

From Author Elyssa Patrick

With one look, I’m his . . .

With one touch, he’s mine . . .

With one kiss, it changes everything between us . . .

I’ve been famous since I can remember. Singing, acting, dancing—I’ve done it all. The tabloids cover my every move, but I don’t want that anymore. I want to be normal, whatever that is.

When I leave Hollywood for college in Vermont, I’m on my own for the first time in my life. This is my chance to figure out who I am and what I want in life.

But it’s a lot harder than I expected. I can’t escape my image. Classes are difficult, and I’m struggling. And then there’s Caleb Fox.

Sexy, intriguing Caleb Fox.

Caleb is the one man who doesn’t want to use me. He breaks down my walls. He challenges me. He wants me. And I just don’t know if I can give him the same—or if he’ll stick around when he finds out my shameful secret that the tabloids haven’t managed to uncover.

Dating him is risky enough, but loving him could break me.

The world has suffered a magic apocalypse. We pushed the technological progress too far, and now magic returned with a vengeance. It comes in waves, without warning, and vanishes as suddenly as it appears. When magic is up, planes drop out of the sky, cars stall, electricity dies. When magic is down, guns work and spells fail.

It’s a volatile, screwed-up world. Magic feeds on technology, gnawing down on skyscrappers until most of them topple and fall, leaving only skeletal husks behind. Monsters prowl the ruined streets, werebears and werehyenas stalk their prey; and the Masters of the Dead, necromancers driven by their thirst of knowledge and wealth, pilot blood-crazed vampires with their minds.

In this world lives Kate Daniels. Kate likes her sword a little too much and has a hard time controlling her mouth. The magic in her blood makes her a target, and she spent most of her life hiding in plain sight.  But sometimes even trained killers make friends and fall in love, and when the universe tries to kick them in the face, they kick back.
