Book Dark LoverThis podcast is brought to you by Signet, publisher of J.R. Ward’s Dark Lover, the first Black Dagger Brotherhood novel—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 Brotherhood…

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…

    What a fun interview—and now I want to read all those Garwood novels, too! :)

    I remember hearing about your book last year, Tracey, and when I looked on GR just now I realized something; why the hell didn’t I pick it up? Seriously, everyone on my “friends” list has rated it 4-5 stars, with dozens more as “want to read”. So why was I out of the loop? Not anymore! *click*

    That new DARK LOVER cover is just wrong! (The original was eye-catching, the new one indistinguishable from all the other books out there.) *flounces away in indignation*

    *tiptoes back* *whispers* Now I want to reread all the early Garwoods—and I just finished a reread of the Bride Quartet, too! *glares* These podcasts are wreaking havoc on my effort to halve my print TBR this year. *sigh*

    I thoroughly enjoyed the podcast (finally listened to it last night) and I’ve already looked up “The Lion’s Lady” on for a download. It’s full price, but totally worth it.

    Also, I audibly squee’d in the car when you said you’d be talking to RedHeadedGirl next. I CAN’T WAIT!!!!
