Publisher's Summary 

In this sexy paranormal romance novel set in the world of the Black Dagger Brotherhood, number-one New York Times best-selling author J. R. Ward tells the story of two couples - both fighting to find love in the midst of the war with the Lessening Society. A vampire aristocrat, Peyton is well aware of his duty to his bloodline: mate with an appropriate female of his class and carry on his family's traditions. And he thought he'd found his perfect match - until she fell in love with someone else. Yet when his split-second decision in a battle with the enemy endangers the life of another trainee, Peyton has to face the idea that his future, and his heart, actually lie with another. Novo, as a female in the Black Dagger Brotherhood's training program, feels like she has to prove herself to everybody - and she has no interest in being distracted by falling in love. But when Peyton proves to be so much more than a rich playboy, she is forced to confront the tragedy that has broken her soul and closed her off from love. As the two grapple with Novo's past and Peyton's present, another couple must contend with an erotic connection that is unparalleled - and potentially scandalous. Saxton, who has had his heart broken, discovers in himself a deep-seated attraction to Ruhn, a new member of the household. But will the other male explore the connection? Or will he close his mind and his heart to what could be true love...and cost Saxton everything?
I love the Black Dagger Brotherhood clan of vampires with their muscled bodies and their equivalent male egos. I love the mansion on top of a mountain in all its glory and the Doggen who take their duties and responsibilities of cleaning up after the brothers and their families seriously.

In the Legacy series, we often spend a good portion of time inside the training facility where we get a glimpse of our favourite brothers as Trainers to the second generation of fighters who are learning to fight. Seeing them again brings back so many memories of what they each went through to get to where they are now. Except for Ruhn, Bitty's Uncle works out a lot because there is nothing better to do.

Peyton and Novo have one thing in common; they hate their families. Peyton is still struggling over the loss of Paradise while Novo has her losses to deal with. Her ex is marrying her sister, and she grieves the loss of her unborn child. While on a mission Novo gets severely injured and it is partly her fault, but Peyton blames it on himself for interfering in Paradise's tactics. Paradise was trying to keep Novo safe.

Saxton doesn't like being single, and Ruhn doesn't want to feel useless and contemplates leaving Bitty and the mansion.

Ruhn is offered a job to protect Saxton while he is sent to investigate a property dispute on Mistress Miniahna's estate. Minnie's Shellan Rhysland died two years ago, and according to the humans, they see her as 'a squatter.' Anyway, the humans are trespassing and causing problems for her because they don't know she's a vampire and to keep her little secret she is supposed to pretend to sell her house every 20 years because the records show her as a single owner since 1821. Saxton needs to work on a paper trail. Anyway, Ruhn and Saxton develop an attraction for one another, and it is so funny! Together they make a great team.

It would seem J.R. Ward does not like to kill off her characters as readily as G.R.R. Martin does. Lol In Blood Fury it is a much happier outcome when the characters survive. :)

What couple did you favour the most? Ruhn & Saxton OR Peyton & Novo?

Ruhn and Saxton! <3!
