Here’s a few highlights from the Q&A at the signing!

Full Q&A is on J. R. Ward’s Facebook Post HERE

Q: Will V be *in* the next book?
A: Yes, V will be in the next book.

Q: Does V cheat?
A: Fair question. In my books, the HEA is never static. If you want to know the answer, I will tell you. (lots of ‘yes’es) Ok, gonna pull a Bill Clinton and ask, what’s the definition of cheating?
(answers varied from “emotional” to “touching” to “full on f***ing”)
Okaaaay then. No, he doesn’t cheat. I’m not gonna tell you it doesn’t get ugly. But, he does not. Where he and Jane are at, is very real. It’s not just that Jane is busy, but in long term relationships, you can pull apart. Something brings them back together, but they’re going to have to learn this lesson.

Q: Will we see the Bastards in the BDB world?
A: The Bastards are going to be interwoven into the BDB world.

Reviews: BLOOD VOW (Black Dagger Legacy #2) by J.R. Ward

BLOOD VOW (Black Dagger Legacy #2) by J.R. Ward

Publication Date: December 6, 2016

Genre: Paranormal Romance

Synopsis

image#1 New York Times bestselling author J. R. Ward returns as her thrilling, original spin-off series set in the world of the Black Dagger Brotherhood continues! When a brooding vampire warrior-in-training teams up with a quick-witted aristocrat to solve a deadly mystery, the only thing more dangerous than their mission is their undeniable attraction.

Trainees at the Black Dagger Brotherhood’s training center continue to prepare for the war against the Lessening Society, but fighting is the last thing on Axe’s mind. Still plagued with the guilt of his father’s death, the brooding loner finds himself battling an unlikely attraction to Peyton’s enticing, aristocratic cousin, Elise. Elise feels it, too – especially when the two are thrown together in unusual circumstances, and she must decide whether she can trust Axe as she uncovers the mystery surrounding her sister’s death.

Meanwhile, Mary and Rhage are fostering Bitty, a young pretrans orphan, and hope to adopt her… until the appearance of a young male claiming to be Bitty’s blooded uncle threatens to tear the new family apart.

Cori 5 Stars

I loved it! The Black Dagger Legacy series gives me those same feelings I had while reading the first books in the Black Dagger Brotherhood series. I just love it! BLOOD VOW is Axe and Elise’s story and I fell love with Axe while reading it. He’ll fit right in with Brothers. BLOOD VOW was exciting, sexy and emotional. It had more of the trainees working with the Brothers and it also had a lot of Rhage with Mary and Bitty which I loved. I’m excited about the direction of the series storyline. I couldn’t put this book down and I loved everything about it. J. R. Ward is one of the queens of paranormal romance and always delivers a great story. I can’t wait to find out who’s next in the Black Dagger Legacy Series.

Donna review 4.5 stars

I loved this book! It was sexy, fun and exciting. Was it perfect? No. But it was so enjoyable to read. Axe is broody and not as deeply in to the seedier side of life like I thought he might be, but that is a good thing since he is still rather young. Elise was interesting, but not as intelligent as her psychology education would have made her. That bothered me a little. I liked the sexiness of their relationship. And yes…I will go ahead and say it. This is the Legacy Series, so I’m bothered that they are so full of the Brother’s stories. I was hoping it was a one-off thing with the first book. Guess not. I think they should be a real background thing. That being said, I was touched by the whole Rhage-Mary-Bitty story. Lassiter was perfect in this book – and I generally cringe at some of the things he has done. I couldn’t put it down, even though I was dog-tired. I’m also excited about the teasers put in there. I hope we don’t have to wait too long to find out which couple will be next.

Synopsis

imageThe legacy of the Black Dagger Brotherhood continues in a spin-off series from the #1 New York Times bestselling author…

Paradise, blooded daughter of the king’s First Advisor, is ready to break free from the restrictive life of an aristocratic female. Her strategy? Join the Black Dagger Brotherhood’s training center program and learn to fight for herself, think for herself…be herself. It’s a good plan, until everything goes wrong. The schooling is unfathomably difficult, the other recruits feel more like enemies than allies, and it’s very clear that the Brother in charge, Butch O’Neal, a.k.a. the Dhestroyer, is having serious problems in his own life.

And that’s before she falls in love with a fellow classmate. Craeg, a common civilian, is nothing her father would ever want for her, but everything she could ask for in a male. As an act of violence threatens to tear apart the entire program, and the erotic pull between them grows irresistible, Paradise is tested in ways she never anticipated–and left wondering whether she’s strong enough to claim her own power…on the field, and off.

Donna 5 Stars

Wow! This book had it all and checked all my requirements plus a few more. I’ll be honest, the last few books in the BDB world just didn’t pull me in like the original stories. This book grabbed me by the neck and wouldn’t let go. I love the fun of a new romance with all the nerves and fumbling around, you add some hot sex and I’m hooked. The training program was perfect and had me tense and wondering how things would turn out but it honed some great new characters. Don’t worry, they aren’t all new, the brothers made it feel like I was coming home without getting bogged down in history. It all just worked with the danger, tension, romance and humor. I will also add that it didn’t get too convoluted and instead was a well thought out story that I plan to read again. Yep. I’m still in their world long after I closed the book.

Cori 5 Stars

The original BDB books are back! I love the BDB series but the first couple books are my favorites. Blood Kiss is the first book in J.R. Ward’s spinoff series, The Black Dagger Legacy. It focuses on the training center and the recruits. Blood Kiss started off with a bang and kept me glued to the pages. I loved the new characters and I loved the brothers leading the training. Butch and Marissa had large parts in the book and we got a lot of the fun banter between the guys. I fell in love with Craeg and I was routing for Paradise. I don’t want to say too much and spoil any of the story so I’ll just say if you’re a BDB fan you’re going to LOVE this new series! When I finished Blood Kiss I felt like I did when I finished Dark Lover. I wanted to read and experience the story again. I wanted to tell all my friends about it and make them read it so I could talk to them about it. It was just that special and epic. I can’t wait for the next book!

Message from J.R. Ward on Goodreads

“I miss the Brothers.

The original ones. We’re talkin’ the ones who started it all.

Z.

V.

Butch.

Rhage.

Wrath.

Tohr.

Phury.

Rehv.

Etc.

I miss that scene, in DARK LOVER, when Fritz kindly asks the Brothers, if they’re going to bloody the human, please take him outside.

I miss Sox hats and grey Goose, Tums and Tootsie Rolls, Biggie Smalls in the Escalade, and Wrath putting a dagger into the wall next to Hollywood’s head.

As much as I LOVE the BDB series where it is now, and as much as I’m psyched to keep writing it and will continue to do so, I miss the good ol’ days.

The issue is that the nature of a series is that it must continue to grow, and change, or it dies. The Black Dagger Brotherhood books started off with the original Brothers, but after their meet-and-greets with their shellans were told, by definition, they had to background it in subsequent books: With a world as big as the BDB one, you have to train your “camera lens” in a controlled manner, or you run the risk of a given story bleeding out for too much extraneous stuff.

(Something I’ve been tagged with doing from time to time, and it’s certainly a fair point.)

So when my boss (my editor) and I were chewing on things last spring, I told her… hey, I got this idea.

I have a lot of ideas. She’s used to this.

I described to her a new series, where the BDB training center is reopened to a new cast of recruits, and THE ORIGINAL BROTHERS teach these FNUGs wassup. In the process of the new recruits falling in love and getting into a sh*t ton of trouble, THE ORIGINAL BROTHERS could be shown with their shellans, their Brothers, their people in the mansion, in a more prominent way than I’m able to do in the BDB books.

Paperback, yo. Not hardcover. Traditional PNR, just like DARK LOVER was in the old days.

Sex. Lot of sex.

As in, you might need your BBQ tongs. Maybe a flame retardant suit.

Maybe a fire truck on standby out in your front yard.

My boss, who’s brilliant, was like, wow, that really doesn’t suck. (Okay, that’s paraphrasing.)

So… we have the first of the Black Dagger Legacy books, BLOOD KISS, coming out this December.

Now, let me say this: the ORIGINAL BROTHERS are still going to show up in the BDB books. Hell, yeah! And from time to time, a BDB book is going to be about them and their mate if there’s a big thing going on in their lives (think THE KING.) I am NOT taking a step away from the Brothers at all- if anything, I’m bringing them further to the forefront with the Black Dagger Legacy books.

But I miss my boys 😦 I want to show you where they’re at. I want to take you back to them- in their new roles as… well, role models and teachers.

Before you ask, yes, they will still be colossal a&&holes- I mean, let’s be clear. Things haven’t changed THAT much. (As an aside, Doc Jess and I were talking the other day, and she was like, I’m so impressed with your ability to be offensive with your heroes. LOLOLOLOL)

This is not to say that the Black Dagger Legacy books will solely be about the Brothers, however. The book will have a lot of the Brothers in them, but the Legacy books will feature a main romance between a couple, and the Brothers will help that along.

eHarmony the BDB way.

Jeez, I gotta be insane for signing up for this. Can you imagine V offering dating advice? “Well, sh*t, just get her some black candles and dog collar, true? Then order her to pop up her ***** **** * * ******* * * * ************** At that point, you’re going to want to inform her, that you’ll tell her when she can beg.”

Great. Really looking forward to this.

*sigh*

Anywho, the first Brother who’s up?

A certain cop. From Boston. Who’s going to have his hands full with the new recruits- two of whom you’ll meet in THE SHADOWS.

A cover reveal is coming soon- but I couldn’t sit on BLOOD KISS any longer!!!!

Gahd, I suck at keeping secrets. But come on now, don’t lie. You’ve missed those leathers, those sh*tkickers… that golf cart… the Pit.

V nakey in the shower.

Don’t lie.

I know I have!

Happy Reading, and thank you for all your support, J.R. “

As much as I LOVE the BDB series where it is now, and as much as I’m psyched to keep writing it and will continue to do so, I miss the good ol’ days.

The issue is that the nature of a series is that it must continue to grow, and change, or it dies. The Black Dagger Brotherhood books started off with the original Brothers, but after their meet-and-greets with their shellans were told, by definition, they had to background it in subsequent books: With a world as big as the BDB one, you have to train your “camera lens” in a controlled manner, or you run the risk of a given story bleeding out for too much extraneous stuff.

(Something I’ve been tagged with doing from time to time, and it’s certainly a fair point.)

So when my boss (my editor) and I were chewing on things last spring, I told her… hey, I got this idea.

I have a lot of ideas. She’s used to this.

I described to her a new series, where the BDB training center is reopened to a new cast of recruits, and THE ORIGINAL BROTHERS teach these FNUGs wassup. In the process of the new recruits falling in love and getting into a sh*t ton of trouble, THE ORIGINAL BROTHERS could be shown with their shellans, their Brothers, their people in the mansion, in a more prominent way than I’m able to do in the BDB books.

Paperback, yo. Not hardcover. Traditional PNR, just like DARK LOVER was in the old days.

Sex. Lot of sex.

As in, you might need your BBQ tongs. Maybe a flame retardant suit.

Maybe a fire truck on standby out in your front yard.

My boss, who’s brilliant, was like, wow, that really doesn’t suck. (Okay, that’s paraphrasing.)

So… we have the first of the Black Dagger Legacy books, BLOOD KISS, coming out this December.

Now, let me say this: the ORIGINAL BROTHERS are still going to show up in the BDB books. Hell, yeah! And from time to time, a BDB book is going to be about them and their mate if there’s a big thing going on in their lives (think THE KING.) I am NOT taking a step away from the Brothers at all- if anything, I’m bringing them further to the forefront with the Black Dagger Legacy books.

But I miss my boys 😦 I want to show you where they’re at. I want to take you back to them- in their new roles as… well, role models and teachers.

Before you ask, yes, they will still be colossal a&&holes- I mean, let’s be clear. Things haven’t changed THAT much. (As an aside, Doc Jess and I were talking the other day, and she was like, I’m so impressed with your ability to be offensive with your heroes. LOLOLOLOL)

This is not to say that the Black Dagger Legacy books will solely be about the Brothers, however. The book will have a lot of the Brothers in them, but the Legacy books will feature a main romance between a couple, and the Brothers will help that along.

eHarmony the BDB way.

Jeez, I gotta be insane for signing up for this. Can you imagine V offering dating advice? “Well, sh*t, just get her some black candles and dog collar, true? Then order her to pop up her ***** **** * * ******* * * * ************** At that point, you’re going to want to inform her, that you’ll tell her when she can beg.”

Great. Really looking forward to this.

*sigh*

Anywho, the first Brother who’s up?

A certain cop. From Boston. Who’s going to have his hands full with the new recruits- two of whom you’ll meet in THE SHADOWS.

A cover reveal is coming soon- but I couldn’t sit on BLOOD KISS any longer!!!!

Gahd, I suck at keeping secrets. But come on now, don’t lie. You’ve missed those leathers, those sh*tkickers… that golf cart… the Pit.

V nakey in the shower.

Don’t lie.

I know I have!

Happy Reading, and thank you for all your support, J.R. “
