Oh man…give me a moment, Lover Eternal has left me breathless! It broke my heart, fixed it again took me to extreme heights of emotion, damn it, I am just exhausted!
In Dark Lover Rhage was the beautiful light hearted warrior that went through women like most people go through meals, you know, three a day. But Rhage has his own curse, the Beast, that rises in him when he gets too riled up and the only way he can keep level is through fighting or sex. But when Mary comes into his life, his Beast in more ansty then usual and the secret longings he has for a shellan of his own rather then a long list of disposable women.
Rhage and Mary are exceptional characters, together they are mesmerizing. Who knew that a womanizing warrior like Rhage could love someone like Mary? They are so different from one another. But unlike most the human race (me included!) she didn’t immediatley fall into Rhage’s arms, she was hesistant, which I loved. She is a smart woman who sticks to the truth about life, which is that it only happens once. With her health on the line, Mary takes cautious steps in this book where she learns to trust and love someone else.
Mary and Rhage just may be my favourite couple of the BDB. Their love was believeable and real you could feel their connection through the pages. This book is truly a happily ever after, and it couldn’t have happened to a better couple.
Butch came around in front, twisting his shirt he’d taken off into a rope. Thanks to all the lifting they’d been doing, the male’s chest and arm muscles were thickening up, and he hadn’t been small to begin with. He couldn’t pull the kind of iron Rhage did, but for a human, the guy was a bulldozer.
“You’re getting into some kind of shape, cop.”
“Aw come on now.” Butch grinned. “Don’t let that shower we took go to your head.”

I’m an obsessive makeup junkie and a compulsive reader. I like to call Under the Covers Book Blog my stomping ground, but when I’m not talking about books with my girls, I write New Adult Dystopian and Contemporary Romance under the pen name Ana Jolene (http://www.anajolene.com). I also work as a virtual assistant for authors. You also can find me as a reviewer and columnist for FreshFiction.com.
When it comes to books I’m pretty adventurous. I read everything from Paranormal Romance to Urban Fantasy, New Adult, BDSM, LGBT fiction, Cozy Mysteries and even YA. If it’s got the littlest trace of romance in it, then I’ll probably read it. That being said, my all-time favorite authors are J.R. Ward and Karen Marie Moning.
When I’m not submerged in a good book, you can find me musing about makeup and planners or dreaming about Kpop boys and beaches. Until then, check out my reviews and let’s talk books!
