PRE-RELEASE SPOILERS: Black Dagger Brotherhood, Book 11 title and cover revealed – Lover At Last

Readers subscribed to J. R. Ward’s fan page on Facebook would have heard the news by now, but the title and cover for book 11 of the Black Dagger Brotherhood series has been announced.

Lover At Last by JR Ward (Black Dagger Brotherhood, Book 11)

Qhuinn and Blay’s book will be called Lover At Last—a somewhat underwhelming title, but I seriously doubt that will affect the rapturous response to this tidbit. I say that as someone who is a sucker for the BDB. We all have our weaknesses.

    I hate to say this, but I have a really bad feeling that this is going to be a love triangle and at the end it won’t be Blay and Quinn together… But Quinn and Layla…

    Why?  Because (and I say this as an author myself) there is no way the Big 6 (mainstream fiction) would publish a gay romance in what has been a completely m/f series. They may hint at Quinn being gay (or bisexual), but they won’t ever play out a m/m romance. In the end Quinn will chose Layla and their baby.

    Just my two cents…But I still think it will be a great read nonetheless… I can’t wait.

  2. Cera duBois says:

    Okay… Maybe I’m wrong… Just saw J.R. Wards FB announcement… I will say I’m surprised that mainstream romantic fiction would tackle m/m, but I’m glad.

    The m/m Brockmann I read was Jules and Robin’s book and it was in hardcover. According to Decadence (who writes our cheat sheets) the Qhuinn/Blay story was meant to be a novella, which turned into 70K words, which has now become a book.

  4. I blog frequently and I really thank you for your content.

    Your article has truly peaked my interest. I’m going to book mark your blog and keep checking for new information about once a week. I subscribed to your Feed as well.

    I’m not a fan of m/m books but i had read all of the Brotherhood Series & let me tell you that i will read this one when it comes out not so much for Blay & Quinn but for Layla, Quinn & Xcor.

    I think Xcor will die & will Layla after the baby, i hope not, I hope it comes to be a big happy ending for all 4 of them. I hope Xcor changes for the love of Layla & his life gets spare. She wrote it at the end J.R. = Xcor, that his weakness like was Layla.

    J. R. I hope you forgive him & spares his life & be able to love & maybe for this first time ever Xcor will know what happiness is.

    Thank you for such great books J.R. Ward

    oh no!
    i will not settle for any pairing other than blay & qhuinn because though it is a gay romance it is a true romance and hence worth a try to try it out differently than go with the crowd and pair layla and qhuinn :)

    I have read all of the black dagger novels and i am very eager to read quinn and blays story. i have every expectation that it will be just as awesome and moving as her other novels. it is way past time for quinn and blay to find their happiness. although i really do like saxton so this should be very interesting, cousins competing for the love of the same man…. can’t wait

  8. alex says:

    I HOPE in the end it will be Quinn and Blay together, and Layla and Xcor (and whaddya know, Xcor comes with a band of warriors who can help the BDB with their cause – big alliance = big impact on the war) and Saxton will get his own book with a new character. 

  9. KB says:

    I’m anxious for this book! And hoping for a Layla/Qhuinn needing flashback, and for Xcor to go after Q for “ruining” the Chosen he wanted. Everything else wii be full of the fun surprises JRW loves to shock us with!!! :) Sorry if I repeated anyone else’s comment, I haven’t read any yet. I got too excited to write!

  10. KB says:

    I don’t mind an m/m story, because if done just right, it can be very good. Suzanne had m/m parts in at least 5 of her stories (not in great detail–which can help a reader who struggles) but I learned to love the character and wanting the best for them. Robin and Jules are hilarious, and Q & B have been set up for us for so long, that I want the best for them too. Finally!!! Lol Then we can get back to another Brother and continue the series… ;p

    quinn and blay……..  weve waited so long and more importantly they truly love each other. im not sure i can go with any other outcome. theyve struggled so much to lose each other in the end. who cares what gender they are.

  12. maya says:

    look i have nothing against gay romance BUT i have been waiting for quinn like forever and i NEED him to find his woman!!! i’m beging!!! big hello to everybody from croatia!

  13. Bella says:

    I really hope they do get together; they have been building up all the way through, and Blay and Saxton have been together a while. But I get what you mean with the love triangle thing, but I don’t think it’ll happen after V and Butch, I think that will be the most we see of them. Although there is potential for the family feud with Saxton.

  14. Courtney says:

    I think Ward did a fantastic Job leading us up to M/M. Still think she could have given it to us in book 10. Even for people who aren’t comfortable with this sort of pairing, the other 4/5 books they have been in together just make you relate to them, and want them to be happy with each other FINALLY! I will be really upset if they do not end up tpgether, although I am pretty sure they will.

  15. Kathy says:

    I really love Blay and Quinn together!! I quite like Layla but she’s a complicatoin in their relationship, maybe if she dies at childbirth and Q&B have the young? Would be a drama but could be really nice. Happy Endings are boring when they’re too perfect!!
    (After Wellsie died, which was hard but made the books good and interesting, too many people survived just like that.)

  16. Alex M says:

    After finding out about lover at last I cannot wait to read. And I have to admit as a heterosexual man I’m intrigued as to how the Quinn/Blay story is going to turn out and I kinda want them to get together in the end but not without a bit of drama. And I think it’s a bout time for a M/M story to be widely sold.
