Title: Lover at Last
Series: Black Dagger Brotherhood, #11
Author: J.R. Ward
Genre: paranormal romance
Release date: March 26, 2013 by NAL


Qhuinn, son of no one, is used to being on his own. Disavowed from his bloodline, shunned by the aristocracy, he has finally found an identity as one of the most brutal fighters in the war against the Lessening Society. But his life is not complete. Even as the prospect of having a family of his own seems to be within reach, he is empty on the inside, his heart given to another….

Blay, after years of unrequited love, has moved on from his feelings for Qhuinn. And it’s about time: The male has found his perfect match in a Chosen female, and they are going to have a young—just as Qhuinn has always wanted for himself. It’s hard to see the new couple together, but building your life around a pipe dream is just a heartbreak waiting to happen. As he’s learned firsthand.

Fate seems to have taken these vampire soldiers in different directions… but as the battle over the race’s throne intensifies, and new players on the scene in Caldwell create mortal danger for the Brotherhood, Qhuinn finally learns the true definition of courage, and two hearts who are meant to be together… finally become one..

Disclaimer: This week, some books were indeed harmed in the making of this booklist. ‘Tis all in the pursuit of brevity and consiceness, of course, but the raw list from this round of new releases far outstripped a reasonable length in which to present them. Never fear, though…the group presented above features some absolutely thrilling and highly anticipated titles.

I’m sure that, no matter what your specific preferences in the realm of genre fiction, it’s very likely this set of new releases includes at least one book you’ve been waiting for, for what feels like forever. Deadly Sting by Jennifer Estep. Of Shadow Born by Dianne Sylvan. Twice Tempted by Jeaniene Frost. …and at last…Lover at Last! (YEAAHAHHHHHOOO!)

Promising new titles include Dweller on the Threshold (bring on the badass supernatural heroine investigator!), Going Vintage (a cute YA contemporary featuring a young lady who shuns technology), and Black Feathers (can’t encompass it in a few words…just looks like a fantasy/alternate world mind trip). Whether you’ve waited ages for that new series release, or find something brand new, this is a great week for book lovers. ^_^

. . .

Anything in this group of releases that you’ve been waiting for eagerly (whether on this list or elsewhere)? What’s the longest you’ve anticipated an in-progress series title? (some authors put them out yearly–others…not so much ^_^)

    I really enjoyed Kendra’s first two books, so I’m looking forward to “Buried.” I’m also intrigued by Anne Marsh’s Smoke Jumper series.

    I have been waiting for Stephanie Laurens, Valerie Bowman, and Anna Randol’s books. Super happy that I got them today~ It felt like forever waiting for them to come out. I have been waiting for Valerie Bowman’s series since forever, way before she debuted last year so it was amazing when she final debuted her series.

    I’m reading the Estep book now, and will probably move to Laurenston (love those books!) and Frost next.

    Most of “my” romance authors are pretty good with their new releases–altho I have written off Lisa Valdez (but for more reasons than timing). I’ve also been impatiently waiting for the next Capt. Lacey book from Ashley Gardner, but the author has been releasing books under her other pseudonyms so I guess I shouldn’t complain (too much).

    My luck isn’t as good with sff authors–including, but not limited to, Wen Spencer, Lynn Flewelling, RM Meluch–and some mystery writers. It’s so painful to wait years for some of them. 🙁

      Robin McKinley is just as bad as Wen Spencer. As is Phillip Pullman.

      But the author that Just. Won’t. Finish. Writing Award goes to: Isobelle Carmody!

      I think I can safely say that I’ve been waiting for her to finish the Obernewtyn series for almost half my bloody life. Seriously.

      • Susan March 27, 2013 at 8:31 pm

        I have the first book in the Obernewtyn series in my e-pile. Now I’m not sure if I should start it (since you seem to like it) or put it off ’til the whole series is finished. I’m not very patient.

      • Susan March 27, 2013 at 10:16 pm

        OK. For the win, I think I need to throw Diana Gabaldon in the “Authors Who Need a Fire Lit Under Them” mix here. Outlander was published in 1992. Over 20 years and still going! It looks Book 8 will be released this fall.

        (And I can pretty much guarantee that you’re not an Outlander fan. 🙂 )

          Gasp! How did you know?

          In terms of the Obernewtyn series, you can probably read the first three books as a trilogy. The epic scale-ness really picks up in book 4 – and that’s where the wait is problematic.

          But, whatever you do, do NOT buy the US editions. The US publishers decided the most recent book was just too long. So they arbitrarily broke it up into two books with a randomly tacked on intro-chapter.

          Book Depository is my friend. 🙂

    I think I want half of the books in this list. I am looking forward to the new Stephanie Laurens the most I think.
    How about Jean M. Auel? It took her 30 years to write 6 books. And if you delete all the repetitions in the 6th book, you have one fourth of it left.
