In the shadows of the night in Caldwell, New York, there’s a deadly war raging between vampires and their slayers. And there exists a secret band of brothers like no other - six vampire warriors, defenders of their race. Possessed by a deadly beast, Rhage is the most dangerous of the Black Dagger Brotherhood...
Within the brotherhood, Rhage is the vampire with the strongest appetite. He's the best fighter, the quickest to act on his impulses, and the most voracious lover-for inside him burns a ferocious curse cast by the Scribe Virgin.
Possessed by this dark side, Rhage fears the times when his inner dragon is unleashed, making him a danger to everyone around him. When Mary Luce is unwittingly thrown into the vampire world, she must rely on Rhage's protection. Knowing that Mary feels the same intense animal attraction, Rhage must make her his alone...
Lover Eternal is the second book from The Black Dagger Brotherhood series, and it is the story of Rhage and Mary.
Compared to Dark Lover, Lover Eternal has a more delicate story. In this book, we meet Rhage, the brotherhood's most fearsome warrior. He is often called "Hollywood" by his brothers for a reason, and that reason would be because he possesses the most handsome face among them. Thus, giving Rhage the advantage of getting more women than necessary. That is, until he met Mary. She doesn't trust him at first, of course, what with his looks and standard of living. But when Rhage proved that he truly likes her, loves her even, she believed him and trusted him of her own secret. And because he loves her, the brotherhood was astonished as how Mary had somewhat "tamed" Rhage's beast.
Rhage's story is, without a doubt, much more tender and stroking than Wrath's. Not only because of Mary's condition, but also because of the lengths he would be willing to do for her; just to have her. I'm very much content of the ending, of course. The Scribe Virgin is very kind, indeed.
