There are SPOILERS for LOVER MINE and BDB world in general BELOW!!!!
JR Ward held an online chat last night, and here is what we learned:
- John Matthew will never know for sure that he used to be Darius. In Dark Lover, the scribe virgin told Darius he will have no conscious memory in his new life. Once JM gets to the fade, all will be revealed.
- Publisher just bought two short stories – one featuring Rhage, Mary and their baby troubles which she will begin to write in two weeks. The second will feature, Wrath, son of Wrath the future king which she will start this winter. They will be in paperback.
- She refuses to comment on whether No’One will be Tohr’s mate.
- There will be more with Murdher – he has some big surprises in store.
- She has talked to producers about a possible series/miniseries/movie. She is looking for the right producer to do it. Right now, she is just happy about the books.
- JR Ward is working on the scene right now in the next book where Manny fixes/saves Payne’s back. Things progress from there with them. She says V has a hard time with Manny smexin’ up his sister and “Thank god for Butch.” (<—Butch and V…swoon)
- When asked if there will be new characters introduced, she says there are three males from the Old Country waiting in the wings – she is not sure when they will be introduced. The training center will also be active again. (<—3 new males..I like)
- JM and Qhuinn will definitely be inducted into the brotherhood – Blay, she said we’ll see and gave her standard – keep reading. (<—huh? poor Blay)
- She has not fully decided, but she is leaning towards writing a novella for Blay and Qhuinn with full m/m sex scenes. (THANK YOU WARD!)
- Xhex does get that tattoo – but not done by V.
- The Scribe Virgin may pull out of her “funk” in Payne and Manny’s book.
- We will be seeing Qhuinn’s frozen brother (who Lash had) in a future book.
If I missed anything big let me know – my eyeballs were ready to fall out by the end. She has some crazy chats :) In a few days, they will have the full transcript from the chat on her message boards.
Erotic Horizon says
I bow to the fount of all things translated from that dreaded forum.
Thanks for the info – I dont need to read these books – I get all the gossip here..
Good news about Blay and Quinn…
That was some crazy fast chat last night, im SOOOO glad someone was taking notes, thank YOU Mandi!
~ I'd always wanted JM to find out he was Darius, but it seemed less important in Lover Mine, i think i'd want it now more for the other Brothers than Johm Matthew.
~ Woot for more Murhder! that makes me happy!
~ C'mon Warden tell us if there's going to be a No'one/Tohr hook up! She gives us that "Keep reading" line, so i will take that as a YES! hahah!
~ Butch and V! SWOON!! just an illicit kiss is all i want! maybe some biting and growly "MINE" too, is that TOO much to ask for? =D
~ Poor Blay! i hope he does get to be a Brother. But i am hopeful for an AWESOME Novella *squees for team Qhuay*
Did Ward say whose book was After Payne and Manny's ? i dont know if i missed it
Again thanks Mandi, you rock for the BDB info! =)
LOL..yes, I really hope she goes through with the B/Q novella.
She did NOT say which books was after Payne…she said she hopes to find out soon.
Oh, I will have to add that she is excited to write Lassiter's book….
No'One HAS to be Tohr's mate…that is why she was acting all hush hush last night..LOL.
I am also guessing that Layla will end up with Murdher. Total guess, but I hope she does and stays away from B and Q!! :)
Amen! Layla with Murhder and NOT Qhuay..from your lips to Wards ear!
Yes the girl needs some loven(poor horny blood bank!) but NOT from the Qhuay! =)
Cant wait for Lassiter's book either, i do like him.
Layla is the horniest person in BDB right now…LOL!! She needs Murdher to show her a good time. I wonder how he is going to end up back in Caldwell….
Thanks for the note taking; I had to leave after intermission and missed a few things! I also think No'One must be Tohr's mate by the way she acted when the question was asked! I think I like that!!
He'll sense the horny, and come charging back! she has to be giving off some wicked wave of Pheromones that would even reach the ghost house! LOL!
Pen – I like that too…we don't know a ton about No'One but she seems to have lots of healing to do too…poor Tohr…
OMG Claire, I heart you…I really do! LMAO!!!!
Man, thank you so much for this. By time I got the Fairy Kid off to bed I couldn't get into the site. I was just too annoyed to try again. LOL
Cool news on the short stories.
So, do you think Lash is really gone? I thought it was okay to ask here since you put the spoiler warning–
Moonsanity – Yes, he is really gone. But..the Omega isn't…He will still cause trouble ;)
I really thought Lash would be harder to get rid of, especially once he started changing. I hated his evil ass, but still…
I'll bet they go after Murdher when Xhex tells someone that she saw him.
I cannot wait for Payne and Manny's book. It's going to be SO good!
tori aka ggs_closet says
I missed last night's chat so I'm glad your on top of things Mandi. I just got LM so now I know wth everyone is talking about.
Blay & Quinn…woooohoooo.
Monroe Dawson says
How exciting for all of this! Im starting (FINALLY) Lover Mine tonight!!! I CANT WAIT!!!!!!!! =) Thanks for the post Mandi!
Pamela AKA SpazP says
Squeeeeee!!!!!! Thank you Mandi!!!!
So the greatest news is Qhuay novella with full m/m action!
I am nervous that she won't commit to saying that Tohr and No'One are HEA, I mean it feels like a no-brainer but I need her to say it!
I wasn't so sure Lash was gone, either, so I'm glad she confirmed that!
HOORAY FOR LASSITER GETTING A BOOK!
And Sparklybearsy, best quote goes to you:
"He'll sense the horny, and come charging back!" LMAO!
I missed the chat also and appreciate being able to find the notes you took the time to update your blog with – nice.
I want to read Blay/Qhuinn's story in all it's hotness. Of all updates Blay not being inducted as a Brother makes my heart ache. Being a Brother doesn't seem to hold his inner dialog as much as JM and Qhuinn's but I'd think it is a very important part of how he identifies himself. If not a brother what? black cloud rolls in…. could he die? That of course would be heartbreaking. I like Blay every bit as much as Qhuinn – having one without the other? Just not right.
Pamela – I don't know if JR Ward confirmed Lash was dead..that was just my conclusion….I can't remember if she confirmed or not..we will have to wait for transcript.
Styles – JR Ward is tricky with her wording..she said JM and Qhuinn will definitely be inducted..as for Blay – KEEEEEEP READING..which means – there is much more that is going to go into it. I don't know if it means he WON'T be inducted..but I think it means it will be complicated.
I knew you'd come throw for us. Checking your blog was my first task of the day (well after cereal – girl's gotta eat). Thanks so much for the summary to clear up all of the SHOUTING and threats to kick people out. LOL!!!
– Novellas. That's like music to my ears. Question. "Wrath, son of Wrath the future King" as in the Wrath we all know and love or Beth and Wrath's son. I'm actually hoping for the former as that might pave the way for more BDB books with a historical twist.
– My relationship with Lash (yes we had one) was completely love/hate. He was the such a good villain. I hate to see him go and hope she miraculously brings him back.
– Big shout out to KindleVixen for totally stumping WARDen with her question on how the Brothers knew Lash was Omega's son!! I think that was one of my highlights from the chat.
Tracy – Wrath and Beth's son – Wrath (jr? LOL)
Kindlevixen was AWESOME!! I am waiting to see if the question gets cleared up on her board!! I loved that she asked and then it was, err, huh? silence. LOL. She did great.
I wonder about Lash..JM and Xhex killing him is such a moment of closure for them..I wonder if HE will be back..maybe in a weird, different form?? I also think it is interesting she is introducing three new males eventually..I was wondering if she would start to do that..we are running out of unmated characters :)
I don't think I will ever tread in the waters of a JR Ward chat but i do love your recaps Mandi. At one hand I love it that we get full M/M acton between blay and Qhuinn but I am greedy regarding their story…I want a full length 500+ pages story. I do not wish for much right?
•There will be more with Murdher – he has some big surprises in store.
YAY, I really liked the surprise he presented in LM and was wondering if we would see more of him in future books *grin*
The rest sounds all good to me! I will have my review up next week but after a few mishaps I finally get to rave again about a BDB novel LOL If I have time I will re-read LM again soon, I just want to soak it all up again ;)
Thank you for taking noes Mandi. I missed it and just wanted to kick myself, but I knew where to go for all the good info!!
Katiebabs/ KB says
And the soundtrack for a BDB movie would be filled with all Jay-Z, 50 Cent and P-Diddy tunes.
Also Ward said she isn't into Twitter.
V and Butch swoon. LOL. so not going to happen…
Tiffany @ KindleVixen says
Great job Mandi! I don't know how you kept up, it was CRAZY in there.
I love the likelihood of the novella, but I am worried about Blay and his Brother status. He deserves it!
I hope she answers my question on the boards, tho I think I am right and its a goof ;)
Thanks for this post, Mandi!
I can't go to the chats. Too much goin' on in those but big hugs to you for laddeling through it all for the good stuff.
West Coast Beach Wife says
Thanks for going into chaos and emerging with a battle summary. Having just finished Lover Mine last night, the chat info was extremely helpful!
Want: One full book on Quinn, more novellas, One full book on Payne, more novellas and possibly one full book of the 4 hour bedroom scene that was only mentioned… Does anyone else feel cheated out of that one?
Mandi, you are a goddess! I got a reminder for the chat and promptly forgot about it. Thank you for your summary. I used to 'try' to follow along on the message boards but it's just too much and I've given up.
I'm glad she's planning on the novellas she mentioned. While I'd love a full length book for Blay and Qhuinn too, I'll take whatever I can get.
I continue to wonder, though, why she keeps hooking up the Brothers with mates who can't have children? Mary is infertile, Jane is a ghost…who exactly are the Chosen supposed to "be" with? Maybe these three new males coming around will help?????
Lassiter-so glad he'll get a book. There was just not enough of him in Lover Mine.
Thanks again Mandi! You ROCK!
Paranormal Haven says
Thank you so much for posting this! I would have been able to attend the chat but she moved it from Tuesday to Thursday and I had to work last night. This is great information. Just makes me that much more excited for Payne's book.
Pamela AKA SpazP says
So Twisted is on the BDB Yahoo User Group and is putting a kybosh on the post-chat discussions we're trying to have. Apparently that is a no-no? Also, they stated this:
> I don't believe there was a transcript for the last chat. Sorry! Perhaps one of your fellow Cellies could help you out.
> And unfortunately, post-discussion from the chats, much like the signings, are not permitted. Since the Mods don't provide a transcript, there's no certainty the information is 100% accurate (although knowing some Cellies and their note-taking skills, I may have to bow in awe – LOL). "
So EXTRA thanks to you Mandi because I don't think we'll be getting a transcript…
Dani from Brazil says
Thanks so much Mandy!
I'm so happy about almost everything, except for the Tohr/NoOne-maybe-thing, I hope she's NOT his new mate. He needs a happier, stronger, more full of life girl. He's sad enought.
I think Payne's book will be one of the best. Poor V will go crazy. Jane and Manny have a history, Manny is related to Butch, Manny will fall in love with Payne, and I'm also curious to see Butch reaction when he meets the female vertion of V. I can't wait.
Fiction Vixen says
I thank you for this Mandi. As you know that forum and I do NOT get along. I'm glad I have you. :)
Umm, will someone throw stones at me for admitting that I still have Lover Mine sitting on my desk at home waiting to be read and I'm not really in no hurry to dive into it!
Yay thanks Mandi for this :)
Girl!! I don't need to tell you how grateful I am you took notes. I finally finished and was shocked about No'One. I don;t remember her from any of the other books. Has she been mentioned before? Anyhow, i am so team Quay, not even funny. In fact, i found myself skipping chapters after a quay chapter just to see what happens. Did she mention a release for Payne and Manny??
OMg exited even though its a total shame Blay and Quinn arnt straight I'm glad because they are so perfect for each other. I hope that Blay and Quinn is after Paynes story.
Thanks for posting this!
I've been hanging out for a Rhage/Mary storyline since 'Wrath' dropped the hint in the DBD insider's guide about them adopting. I feel like Mary and Rhage have just been shoved aside in recent books… Mary especially, she gets jumped with everyone's psychological problems, but no plot for herself!
I wonder if Blay won't become a brother because he's going to become a Havers-like doctor? Choose love, not war, so to speak. lol
YAY! Qhuinn/Blay novella! Hell's yeah! 'Lover Mine' got me so psyched for these two!
P.S. – there was no mention of Layla (*shiver*)?
Oh sweet Jesus full on m/m scenes!!!! I feel like taking a knee and thanking JR Ward.
The Book Vixen says
Thank you for the spoiler warning! I'm bookmarking this post to read later, after I finish LM :)
thanks for this Mandi! I am in bewildered awe of your speed reading/rapid note-taking abilities =D
so excited about the new novellas, I wish she would do a full book for Qhuay but as their story will have full on m/m sex, I will be satisfied.
she said Lassiter's book will be after Tohr's but didn't say when Tohr's will be. I'm hoping it'll follow Payne & Manny.
Thanks Mandi… I cannot handle the boards. I appreciate all of you that brave the boards!
Layla and Muhrder (I forget where the "h" goes)… I thought the same thing. I think the reason we endured the entire "ghost hunter" story is to show that he has learned from his past and now knows that when you find a female of worth, she is worth the fight, no matter what. I think he will love and care for Layla with every ounce of his being.
Dani: I felt similar when we found out Xhex was JM's mate and she did their story wonderfully! I have faith that Ward will show us a No'One that will be perfect for Tohr!
Blay's future in question: I'm not worried at all… Why does he have to be a brother? He may want to do something else – like Danielle say – a doctor, or ??? I don't see the comments as troublesome.
Lash… I was disappointed by his story line in LM… I mean, the Omega went BACK IN TIME to create a son – someone to raise above all others. And then the Omega tosses him out b/c Lash needs to feed and asks for a female?! REALLY?! I was put off by that. And, with his mysterious transformation, to just have him die… well, it was disappointing. I like how JM and Xhex did him in, but it was too easy. I wonder if he'll be back – we know the Omega has the ability. OR maybe Lash was transformed enough that he didn't really die – maybe it completed his transformation.
West Coast Beach: I would LOVE for a 4-hour scene! *wink*
Lisa – I don't know…I guess infertile women add to the drama ;)
Lynette – *throwing stones, big ones*
Nikki – No'One makes an appearance in Phury's book (I think). Pretty sure you just see her, she didn't talk.
Danielle – Oooh..good point about Blay. And – I don't think Layla was mentioned….she keeps quiet about her future.
Jaymzangel – oh..cool! Didn't catch that about Lassiter after Tohr!

Hi, Neat post. There is a problem with your site in web explorer, might test this? IE nonetheless is the market chief and a good component of other folks will leave out your fantastic writing due to this problem.
