Publisher's Summary

The legacy of the Black Dagger Brotherhood continues in a spin-off series from the number-one New York Times best-selling 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. 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, aka 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.

BDB Spin Off Does Not Disappoint!

I was skeptical about JR Ward doing a spin off of the BDB series, and was afraid it would be more of a young adult novel due to the main storyline being about a training class. However,
I should've had more faith, this was classic JR Ward all the way, and I loved the spin off!

Blood Kiss does introduce us to some younger characters which is refreshing, but I was happy to see there was a strong presence of some of the original BDB characters including two of my favorite Vishous, and Butch. While the main plot is about Craeg and Paradise, the subplot with Butch and Marissa tied in nicely.

JR Ward is my favorite author! She knows how to write an awesome story that's full of romance, action and surprises.

This story was well worth the credit, and time well spent! I can't wait for the next book in the series. :-)

- Cheri "Love listening to audiobooks, and being swept away by a great story and narrator. It's my therapy, and I need it daily!"

J.R. Ward let's me down yet again.

This book wasn’t for you, but who do you think might enjoy it more?

BDB newcomers will like this book; but those of us who remember the first 6 books that started it all, long for her to get back on track.

What was most disappointing about J. R. Ward’s story?

This is suppose to be a spin-off and 1st book, this is a very weak start, very weak; if not down right bad.

Who would you have cast as narrator instead of Jim Frangione?

Only Jim Frangione can be the narrator of her series, but he must go back to his original reading of the cast names.

What reaction did this book spark in you? Anger, sadness, disappointment?

Sadness and disappointment

Any additional comments?

Sadly this will be the last book for me unless this author who started my enjoyment of this genre starts to get her mo jo back
