Juggling 2 at one time

I couldn't wait to start Lover Mine, but it's hard to lug it to work. So I started a paperback, too.

Lover Mine (Black Dagger Brotherhood, Book 8) by J. R. Ward

My favorite series EVER.

In the darkest corners of the night in Caldwell, New York, a conflict like no other rages. Long divided as a terrifying battleground for the vampires and their enemies, the city is home to a band of brothers born to defend their race: the warrior vampires of the Black Dagger Brotherhood.

John Matthew has come a long way since he was found living among humans, his vampire nature unknown to himself and to those around him. After he was taken in by the Brotherhood, no one could guess what his true history was- or his true identity. Indeed, the fallen Brother Darius has returned, but with a different face and a very different destiny. As a vicious personal vendetta takes John into the heart of the war, he will need to call up on both who he is now and who he once was in order to face off against evil incarnate.

Xhex, a symphath assassin, has long steeled herself against the attraction between her and John Matthew. Having already lost one lover to madness, she will not allow the male of worth to fall prey to the darkness of her twisted life. When fate intervenes, however, the two discover that love, like destiny, is inevitable between soul mates.

My Thoughts of The Rogue Prince:

Not that it has anything to do with the quality of the story, but I just wanted to point out that I find the man on the book cover very sexy. Just sayin'. Love his hair. As for the book.....This is the first Margo Maguire book that I was a little disappointed in. It was a very good story, and the romance was so sexy and hot, with intense emotions, but the premise that Thomas had everyone believing he was the prince of a previously unknown country was a bit much. Sabedoria? That's the best name they could come up with? But like I said, the romance was great, and Tom's choice between love and revenge is very wrenching.
