    Lover Awakened by J R Ward *September 2006*
    is the Lover Awakened
    Zsadist: the most lethal of the brothers. A former blood slave who was mercilessly tortured during the first hundred years of his life, Z is the one who has fallen farthest from grace. But he is utterly worthy of redemption.
    This post is moved from March when JR Ward joined us for Lover Eternal's debut. She will be back for Lover Awakened in Sept.

    But to answer the most recent question... looks like the next excerpt will be from Butch's book [listen to cindys sqqquuee]. Don't expect any more Z ones, at least that is what a lil birdie told me.

    J. R. Ward recently received the cover and wanted to share.
    click if you want to see not only the cover but also a summary
    This will be ICE BLUE when finished. Or at least that is the plan as of now.

    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. Of these, Zsadist is the most terrifying member of the Black Dagger Brotherhood.

    A former blood slave, the vampire Zsadist still bears the scars from a past filled with suffering and humiliation. Renowned for his unquenchable fury and sinister deeds, he is a savage feared by humans and vampires alike. Anger is his only companion, and terror is his only passion-until he rescues a beautiful aristocrat from the evil Lessening Society.

    Bella is instantly entranced by the seething power Zsadist possesses. But even as their desire for one another begins to overtake them both, Zsadist's thirst for vengeance against Bella's tormentors drives him to the brink of madness. Now, Bella must help her lover overcome the wounds of his tortured past, and find a future with her....

    2. Squeeee! I can't wait! No really. I can't. I mean it. Oh well. This is another great cover. One quibble--isn't Bella described w/black hair? Perhaps when the cover's in color it won't look blonde. Thanks for sharing.

    3. I noticed that also! I thought Z was going to be on the cover himself only? Then again this was discussed on the board and I havent been on in awhile so I guess it was changed? Anyway anything with the Brothers on it I will always love.....

    4. Cover proofs can always be corrected~ that looks like the perfect cover to me, and darkening hair is easy. Would have been a shame to pass on it just cuz of hair, easily fixed.

      and nope, i'm not gonna say anything about how awesome Z's story is. Nope. not a word.

    5. Devon- I talked to my editor about this and they need to change her hair color- this is the prototype. Good catch!

      I like the covers a lot, I gotta say. The art department at Signet/NAL is awesome.

      Celena- I really like what they did here- it's in keeping with the other two. And it makes me think of Z!

      (Ah, hell, what doesn't. I'm a shameless Z fangirl.)

    6. We Love you WARDen!!!!!!!!!!!! And all the brothers!!!!:)

    7. Have to admit Z is growing on me.

    8. I was telling Sybil way early this morning that I thought you had pulled the winning lottery when it came to book covers. I hope that the publisher and art department keep the same theme.

    9. So true JR! I posted on the board also but I will say it again,
      We all have mental images on how each brother look so to tell you the truth I dont think anyone could give Z the justice he deserves with a frontal. I just got carried away awhile back when it was mentioned that he might have one. All I could think about was seeing Z in full and up front!
      ~Sigh~ what a great mental!! LOL!
      Anyway you are also right on keeping it with the other two but then again you know what each brother wants and deserves.
      Man I wish he was bitting my neck!! LOL! Sorry I will behave
      P.S See how I get when I think about Z? I need help!! LOL!

      By Blogger Celena, at 3/06/2006 03:18:00 PM  

    10. Cindy- I totally agree with you and as far as I know now the look of the covers is going to stay exactly the same!

      I did win the lottery. With my editor, too. She rocks...

    11. Ahhh, Z's book....September won't come soon enough for me! Love the cover too!

    12. Z's cover is amazing. Love the ice blue. I just love the whole feel of the cover. And yep, I noticed Bella's hair color too. :)

    13. I too, have to say I love the cover! I ditto Bellas hair but i aslo wondered about Z's hair. Doesnt he have a buzz cut? J R is going to kill us all for mentioning something as small as hair but we are some serious fans. Loved Lover Eternal JR!!!

      By Blogger Suzette, at 3/06/2006 06:03:00 PM  

    14. Ohh I can't wait for this book. I believe Z is my favorite character. I do so love those bad boys. I loved dark Lover. Have had it a while but read it saturday and it was fantastic. I actually won the 2nd book in your RJ Chat and I'm looking forward to reading that one as soon as I get it. I loved Rhage but thought he needed taken down a peg. He was entirely too spoiled by women or so he seemed. lol

    15. Pam! I'm still waiting on my author copies- don't give up on me! And I'm thrilled you like DL...

      And Suzette, absolutely Z has a skull trim- they did what they could though and I love the end result. And I'm glad you care enough to notice!

    17. Aahhh...
      I've been waiting for Z's book since the beginning.
      Bring it on. ;-)

    18. Look, I can comment! YAY ME! ;-)

      I can't wait for Z's book, either. I've been intrigued by him since the beginning and I'm so looking forward to finding out all of the details of his life.

      Is it Sept. YET? *sigh*

      As for the covers, I totally agree, JRW hit the jackpot! They're great!

    19. SQUEEEEEEEE!!! Let me guess, you've received you ARC of Lover Awakened. You know what, don't tell me, I'm not sure I can handle the truth!

      I thought it wasn't going to be out until October so I'm one happy camper that it says September!

      After Z, Butch, Butch, Butch, Butc..*walks into sunset chanting*


      By Blogger CindyS, at 6/07/2006 09:55:00 PM
