DARK LOVER
**********

Dark Lover is the first of the Black Dagger Brotherhood series. It tells the story of Wrath - the last purebred vampire left on the planet. The uncrowned king of the vampire species, Wrath lives only to fight in an endless war with the soulless vampire slayers, lessers, who brutally murdered his parents centuries ago. As leader of the Brotherhood, his only solace is in fighting, not looking to the past or future, shunning his duties as King.

Within the vampire world, Wrath is known as the Blind King, due to his extremely poor eyesight, though this does not affect his powers on the battlefield nor his ability to sense the feelings of others around him.

Blaming himself for his parents death, Wrath has wrapped himself in a cocoon of self-hatred and unfeelingness, but Dark Lover tells of his enlivening. When the lessers kill one of his best fighters, Wrath is left with the responsibility to help the warrior’s half-human daughter, Beth, through her transition - this is a critical moment in a vampire’s life when he or she transforms into an adult. Thereafter, they must drink the blood of the opposite sex to survive...

LOVER ETERNAL
*************

Lover Eternal is second in the Black Dagger Brotherhood series. It tells the story of Rhage, the strongest and best fighter of the Brotherhood. He is also considered the most attractive of all the Brothers, and his beauty earned him the nickname 'Hollywood'. However, Rhage was cursed in the early eighteen hundreds, for angering The Scribe Virgin. Due to his continued recklessness and uncontrollability just after his transition, The Scribe Virgin gave him The Beast. Fearsome in its beauty, the Beast resembles a huge dragon with massive claws and a jaw filled with sharp fangs.

It was a punishment designed to regulate Rhage's energy and moods. Whenever he gets out of control, the Beast comes out. When this occurs Rhage's eyes turn a brilliant white and his body mutates in a grisly display of tearing and ruptures - letting the Beast emerge. When it is out, Rhage is totally suppressed and he is in no way able to control the Beast, who knows neither friend nor foe. Because of this, Rhage has to keep the Beast from coming out, subduing it through the satiation of a good fight or sex.

LOVER AWAKENED
**************

Lover Awakened is the third in the Black Dagger Brotherhood series. It tells the story of Zsadist, the most lethal of the brothers. A former blood slave who was mercilessly tortured during the first hundred years of his life, Z is the one who has fallen farthest from grace. Lover Awakened tells of his redemption.


As an infant, Zsadist had been taken from his home and forced to serve in the house of a vampire aristocrat while he was pre-transition. Years later, hours after his transition, he found himself tied down, with thick black bands being tattooed into the skin around his wrists and neck (his pulse points). Overnight he had become a blood slave - a male or female vampire who is subjugated to serve the blood needs of another. For a hundred years, Zsadist had to suffer through the horror of being at the mercy of a brutal vampire female, The Mistress. Over time, Zsadist became numb. His canary yellow eyes, similar to that of his twin’s, Phury, grew black and soulless, a reflection of how he felt inside.

Deleted scene from DARK LOVER. **WARNING: mild plot spoilers ahead.
This scene was altered from this, its original form, during DARK LOVER's revision process. The concern was that it went just a little too far. If you're so inclined, let me know if you think it did.
This takes place about three quarters of the way through the novel...

***
Mr. X watched Billy Riddle walk into the office. Riddle was dressed in a dark blue polo shirt and a pair of khaki shorts, looking tanned, healthy, strong.

Strapping, to use an old fashioned word from Mr. X’s youth.

“Sensei.” Billy bowed his head.

“How are you doing, son?”

“I’ve thought it over.”

Mr. X waited for the answer, surprised by how much he cared about what it was going to be.

“I want to work for you.”

Mr. X smiled. “That’s good, son. That’s real good.”
