My all time favorite vampire series is J.R. Ward’s Black Dagger Brotherhood series
These are adult romance books that are very sexy as well as romantic. J R Ward transports the readers into her world and makes it very difficult to leave. You cry when these brothers do, and you rejoice when happiness touches their lives. She makes you care about them and you can’t help but think about these brothers long after you’ve finished reading.
Every brother is strong, and fierce when provoked. They aren’t perfect and in fact they are each flawed physically in some way and maybe that’s why they are so appealing to me. They don’t let their flaws define who they are. They can be snarky with each other, but when the going gets tough, they have each other’s back.
These black-ops vampires take care of the Lessening Society (de-souled humans), which are the enemy of the Brotherhood and dedicated to the extinction of vampires.
My vampire tale Twilight's Eternal Embrace is a historical romance set in Ireland, long before the word 'vampire' ever existed.
The Oiche Sith, the blood drinkers, forged an alliance with the Lathe Sith, a neighboring daywalker clan. The Oiche Sith would protect them from invaders in exchange that one female a year wed one of their warriors for the blooding ritual. Unfortunately, the female Lathe Sith never survives for very long.
Adryanna, a Lathe Sith, mourns the death of her recently mated sister, but she finds solace in the most unlikely place—in the arms of Bram, an Oiche Sith. She should fear him, loathe his existence, but instead she longs for their twilight embraces. Bram admires Adryanna’s strength and wishes only to protect her, even if it’s from him.
If Bram cannot find a way for Adryanna to survive the blooding ritual the romance is doomed. They seek help from Sheerin, Bram’s cousin, who believes he’s found a way for the Lathe Sith to survive, but others in the Oiche Sith clan do not wish for them to succeed.

Question: If you read the Black Dagger Brotherhood series, who’s your favorite brother? I’m a Zsadiest fan. A tortured hero gets me every time. If you haven't read the series, who is your favorite vampire character of all time?
Here’s a list of the brothers and their books:
Wrath is the King of the vampires and is the last pure blood vampire in existence. He was almost blind (in this book) and is the leader who was not willing to ascend the throne. He falls in love with Beth, the half-breed daughter of his Brother in arms, Darius. His story is told in Dark Lover.
Rhage, son of Tohrture, is the strongest and most beautiful of the Brothers. He goes by the name, "Hollywood", and is also the most sexual because of his curse. Cursed by The Scribe Virgin, he is possessed with a dark creature known only as the Beast that makes him a danger to everyone including his brothers, except for Mary. The beast seems to adore her. His story is told in Lover Eternal.
Zsadist, son of Aghony, is the scarred, menacing Brother. He was taken as an infant from his family and forced into blood slavery. Phury, his twin rescues him a century later. Zsadits is described as being "ruined, not broken". He meets aristocratic vampire Bella and things begin to change for this vampire in Lover Awakened.
Butch is the only male human to be allowed within the Brotherhood. His story and his love for the vampire Marissa is told in Lover Revealed. ( I don’t want to say too much for there are surprises revealed in this story.)
Vishous son of The Bloodletter. He’s intelligent and the one who is specially gifted. His curse is to see the future, though he’s never sure when the events will occur so he cannot always save those who may face danger. He’s tattooed on his face, his genitals, - which are scarred because his father tried to castrate him. His entire hand, he has the ability of psychometry. He falls in love with a human surgeon, Dr. Jane Whitcomb. His story is told in Lover Unbound.
Phury, son of Aghony, is Zsadist's twin brother and a celibate. His guilt for living a good life while his brother did not prevents him from fully living. Phury is incredibly loyal to his brother, even shooting off his own leg to save his twin. His love interest is with the Chosen, Cormia. His story is told in Lover Enshrined.
Rehvenge is brother-in-law to Zsadist. He’s a half symphath, and owner of a local club called ZeroSum. He is also a member of the vampire aristocracy and the "Princeps Leahdyre" of its council. He hides the fact that he is half "symphath" even from his own sister, Bella. His story is told in Lover Avenged.
Tohrment took over leadership of the Brotherhood when Wrath became king. He was the Brother, with a kind heart, until a tragedy took the life of his Shellan, Wellsie and his unborn son. He disappears until Lover Enshrined. A fallen angel, Lssiter returns him to the brotherhood, but he is weak and still mourning the loss of his Shellan. His story is told in Lover Reborn.
John Matthew/Tehrror is the reincarnation of Darius. He was born mute and uses American Sign Language and whistling to communicate with others. Before learning that he was a pre-trans vampire, he lived alone in the human world. His love interest is Xhex and his story is told in Lover Mine. He is best friends with Qhuinn and Blaylock.
Payne, twin sister of Vishous, is cut from the same dark, seductive cloth as her brother. She was imprisoned for eons by their mother, the Scribe Virgin, but finally frees herself and suffers a devastating injury. Manuel Manello, M.D., is drafted by the Brotherhood to save her. He's human and she's a vampire. The relationship is a big no-no.
Qhuinn is best friends with Blaylock and John Matthew. He is hated by his parents because of his mismatched eyes. (This is considered defects to the vampire aristocracy). In order to avoid being put to death he was dedicated as John Matthew's ahstrux nohtrum - his protector. He is a playboy with commitment issues, preferring a steady stream of anonymous sex. In "Lover Mine" you also see that he really is in love with Blay.
Blaylock or Blay First met John Matthew at the training facility and quickly became John's first friend. He is now a soldier in the war against the Omega and the Lessening Society. It has been revealed that he is gay and in love with Qhuinn. This has placed an increasing strain on their friendship. Qhuinn and Blay’s story is in Lover at Last. (released date is March 2013)
