Description:

In the shadows of the night in Caldwell, New York, there's a deadly turf war raging between vampires and their slayers. 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 appetites. 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. Owned by this dark side, Rhage fears the time when his inner dragon is unleashed, making him a danger to everyone around him.

Mary Luce, a survivor of many hardships is unwittingly thrown into the vampire world and reliant on Rhage's protection. With a life-threatening curse of her own, Mary is not looking for love. She lost her faith in miracles years ago. But when Rhage's intense animal attraction turns into something more emotional, he knows that he must make Mary his alone. And while their enemies close in, Mary fights desperately to gain life eternal with the one she loves... 

My Thoughts: 

This book follows Rhage whose is a vampire unique to himself.  He's also cursed by the Scribe Virgin his punishment was half vampire half beast.  When he meets Mary he finds himself instantly drawn to her.  Unsure of what is causing the growing attraction he keeps putting off wiping her memory.

Mary has had her share of ups and downs and when she meets a mute named John she feels a strong connection to him which lead her to the brotherhood who are interested in John.  When she meets Rhage she feels a strong attraction to him but unsure why.  

Of course they have lots to overcome for their relationship to work especially with those really annoying lessers trying to kill the brotherhood and anyone attached to them.  I love this series it pulls you in and you can't let go.  It really is addicting once you've started you really want to finish the series.  Which is crazy with the amount of books and pages as you begin!
