Lover Enshrined By J.R. Ward

Lover Enshrined (Black Dagger Brotherhood #6)

Genre: Paranormal Romance


Fiercely loyal to the Black Dagger Brotherhood, Phury has sacrificed himself for the good of the race, becoming the male responsible for keeping the Brotherhood's bloodlines alive. As Primale of the Chosen, he is obligated to father the sons and daughters who will ensure that the traditions of the race survive, and that there are warriors to fight those who want all vampires extinguished.

As his first mate, the Chosen Cormia wants to win not only his body, but his heart for herself. She is drawn to the noble responsibility behind the emotionally scarred male. But Phury has never allowed himself to know pleasure or joy. As the war with the Lessening Society grows grim, tragedy looms over the Brotherhood's mansion, and Phury must decide between duty and love....


Phury has been a mess ever since saving his brother Zsadist and sacrificing his leg in the process, using drugs to quash the memories and the voice in his head he calls “The Wizard”. Now with also bring the Primale adding to his stress, he is heading down a rocky road. Phury seeks John’s help in familiarising Cormia, the Chosen, with being on this side. Cormia enjoys the freedom with being at the Brotherhood mansion; being able to run on the grass, watch a movie, not having to worry about propriety. Phury is reluctant to get involved with Cormia, afraid of his feelings but there comes a time when he cannot avoid them anymore, though after his instinct take over and he has her, the guilt consumed him and he hits rock bottom. Eventually he gets himself back on track with Cormia’s help and after his overdose, they finally get their happy ending.

“He caught her as she leaped up to him and held her warm body to his.

“I love you,” she choked out.” I love you, I love you...I love you.”

In that moment, with the world that was his in transformation, and his shellan safely in his arms, he felt something he never would have imagined.

He finally felt like the hero he had always wanted to be.”

This book in one in the series you either love as much as the rest or have a little trouble with getting into. The romance between Cormia and Phury isn’t as prevalent as it has been with the previous books. Reading about John was probably the parts I enjoyed most in this book, Lash finally got what he deserved in this, though unfortunately Qhuinn had to deal the blow which leads to him being disowned by his family and beaten by the honour guard sent by them; one of the guards being his own brother. When Wrath finds out about the reasoning behind Qhuinn’s attack on Lash he offers his solace in exchange for him being John’s ahstrux nohtrum. Tohrment was found alive in this book, but is very broken, the fallen angel Lassiter returning him to the Brotherhood in exchange for going with him to the mansion, staying with him. Zsadist and Bella’s baby girl also is born in this book, her name being Nalla. This book is packed with new developments and details, although it isn’t as orientated on the relationship between Cormia and Phury and it is in the other books with the other couples, it is still a great read.
