Black Dagger Brotherhood
November 26, 2019
#1 New York Times bestselling author J.R. Ward is heating things up this winter with a holiday novel featuring some of her most iconic Black Dagger Brothers.
When Trez lost his beloved to a tragic death (The Shadows, Black Dagger Brotherhood #13), his soul was crushed and his destiny seemed relegated to suffering. But when he meets a mysterious female, he becomes convinced his true love has been reincarnated. Is he right? Or has his grief created a disastrous delusion?
Therese has come to Caldwell to escape a rift with her bloodline. The revelation that she was adopted and not born into her family shakes the foundations of her identity, and she is determined to make it on her own. Her attraction to Trez is not what she’s looking for, except the sexy Shadow proves to be undeniable.
Has fate provided a grieving widower with a second chance...or is Trez too blinded by the past to see the present for what it really is? In this sensual, arresting book full of the themes of redemption and self-discovery, two lost souls find themselves at a crossroads where the heart is the only compass that can be trusted...but that may require a courage that neither of them possesses.
Where Winter Finds You is the follow up to “The Shadows” by J.R. Ward. These stories are from the Black Dagger Brotherhood series which I can’t recommend enough. If you enjoy vampire romance novels with dirty language, violence, humor, and a thrilling story line, go start yourself with “Dark Lover“. You won’t regret it.
Winter magic in Caldwell
Where Winter Finds You had a bit of holiday magic swept inside. A human experiences a miracle in this story and that’s just the warm up. Bitty is surprising aware and mature in handling her first holiday season in her adopted family. Throughout the book you feel as though you’re walking in the snow and experiencing the seasonal spirit that comes with December.
Well worth the four-year wait!
Having silently cried on an airplane next to strangers when reading The Shadows, I was desperate for this story. Trez loved and lost the greatest love he’d ever know. Naturally he’d be tempted to fall head first into a relationship with Therese. She is a visual twin of his lost wife. Trez navigating love after loss is both beautiful and tragic. Ward shows us how strong and yet how vulnerable a person must be in Trez’s situation.
Cheers to another J.R. Ward book rating of 5-stars. The only book of hers that didn’t get 5 from me would be “Lover at Last“. That one got about 25-stars.
