J.R. Ward is a Tease: Lover At Last Back Cover Copy and A Snippet

Lover At Last J.R. Ward

J.R. Ward is feeling all teasy and released a few juicy tidbits for Lover at Last recently on her Facebook Page.

Back cover copy

Qhuinn, son of no one, is used to being on his own. Disavowed from his bloodline, shunned by the aristocracy, he has finally found an identity as one of the most brutal fighters in the war against the Lessening Society. But his life is not complete. Even as the prospect of having a family of his own seems to be within reach, he is empty on the inside, his heart given to another….

Blay, after years of unrequited love, has moved on from his feelings for Qhuinn. And it’s about time: The male has found his perfect match in a Chosen female, and they are going to have a young- just as Qhuinn has always wanted for himself. It’s hard to see the new couple together, but building your life around a pipe dream is just a heartbreak waiting to happen. As he’s learned firsthand.

Fate seems to have taken these vampire soldiers in different directions… but as the battle over the race’s throne intensifies, and new players on the scene in Caldwell create mortal danger for the Brotherhood, Qhuinn finally learns the true definition of courage, and two hearts who are meant to be together… finally become one.


…I’ll be your after dinner mint

Qhuinn followed, bringing up the rear in case anyone decided to pull a hi-how’re-ya-

From out of thin air, Blay appeared, the male suited up in leather, and as heavily armed as the rest of them. Qhuinn’s feet slowed, then stopped in the snow, mostly because he didn’t want to trip and fall like an a**hole.

God, that was one grim motherf**ker, he thought as Blay started walking forward. Was there some trouble in paradise?

Even though there was no eye contact, Qhuinn felt compelled to say something. “What’s…”

He didn’t finish the “doing” part of the sentence. Why bother? The guy just stalked past him like he wasn’t there.

“I’m great,” Qhuinn muttered under his breath as he resumed trudging through the snow. “Doin’ awesome, thanks for asking- oh, you having probs with Saxton? Really? How’d you like to go out and get a drink and talk about it? Yeah? Perfect. I’ll be your after dinner mint-”

Lover At Last

Oh Qhuinn…Oh Blay. I can’t wait. :)

    I finally read Payne & Manny’s book the other day, and I’ve been pulled back in to the story all over again. I can’t wait to read Quinn & Blay’s story! :)

        I galloped through the first 6 that were out when I first started reading the series, and have Rhev & John’s books in hardback, but with Payne I just wasn’t that interested. I didn’t feel like I’d seen enough of her in the series to care what happened, and the back cover blurb didn’t sound particularly interesting, so I’d put it off. I ended up reading it really quickly anyway, but it felt like a bridging book so I am glad that I waited. But not long now until Blay & Qhuinn. :)

    I have a feeling I’ll be reading at 12:01 am on release day. And will be unavailable to do anything else the rest of the day.

    I need to go find an after-dinner mint and ponder what this means. You know, one of those buttery kind that… ZOMG, my eyes just crossed.
