The Angel's Share by J.R.Ward 2nd In The Series Release Spotlight!

#1 New York Times bestselling author J. R. Ward delivers the second novel in her Bourbon Kings series—a sweeping saga of a Southern dynasty struggling to maintain a façade of privilege and prosperity, while secrets and indiscretions threaten its very foundation…

While bourbon ages in its oak barrels, the barrel expands and contracts due to seasonal changes, which causes a small amount of the liquid to dissipate. That small sacrifice of some of the most sought-after alcohol in the world is called “the angels’ share.” While there is a scientific reason behind this, author J.R. Ward has noted that that process can be applied to all of us. “We are, like fine bourbon, a different product at the end—and there is sacrifice involved.” Such change and sacrifice is also true of the fictional bourbon-making family the Bradfords, first introduced in last year’s bestselling The Bourbon Kings.

On the surface the Bradfords were the perfect family. With a thriving bourbon business that has kept them wealthy for generations, they are part of the Kentucky elite society and the envy of many. But the foundation of their prosperity and influence has crumbled. The business is bankrupt and the family patriarch, beloved by no one, was found dead in the Ohio River. When the investigation threatens to point fingers at someone within the family, secrets and lies begin to unravel.

Ward has created an indelible cast of upstairs/downstairs characters whose lives intersect in a page-turning mix of dark family secrets and double crossings, high stakes business deals, and delicious bad behavior. From the now-emotionally and physically debilitated eldest son, Edward, and his recently-returned prodigal brother, Lane, to their wild child baby sister, Gin, and their painkiller- addled mother, Victoria (“Little V.E.”), the Bradfords—and the characters surrounding them—are intriguing, layered characters created by one of the sharpest writers in contemporary women’s fiction.

J.R. Ward is the #1 New York Times bestselling author of numerous novels, including the Black Dagger Brotherhood series. She lives in the South her family.

Praise for The Bourbon Kings
“Breathless fun! J. R. Ward moves her trademark dark and sexy from the world of warrior vampires to the halls of the Kentucky elite, where the family members’ claws are just as sharp and the consequences just as deadly. I couldn’t stop turning the pages!”
New York Times bestselling author Lisa Gardner

“With more devious characters than DynastyThe Bourbon Kings is juicy soap opera at its finest.”
The Philadelphia Enquirer 

“Soapy elements abound in this Dynastyesque tale, from lavish wealth to feuds, dirty secrets, and forbidden love…Ward is a master of pacing and world building, and readers will love that the cliff-hanger ending guarantees at least a second helping of the Bradfords.”
Booklist (starred review)
