Lover Awakened

From Booklist
Deeply scarred without and within, vampire warrior Zsadist believes that he is unworthy of either compassion or true love. One night a glimmer of hope crosses his path, embodied in the young civilian Bella; yet, true to form, he pushes her away. But when the enemy of their race kidnaps Bella, Zsadist can't rest until he finds her, and once he does, he faces his biggest threat to date as fate grants him one last chance at peace. Ward spins her take on Beauty and the Beast into a raw, gritty tour de force, creating an array of ugliness and beauty, pain and pleasure in a tale that sparks enough plot stunners to keep readers fascinated for years to come. Not for the faint of heart--strong sexuality and stronger language rule here--this genre-bending third novel in the Black Dagger Brotherhood series, following Lover Eternal (2006), is a perfect fit for those who like fast-paced urban fantasy rich in both fury and poignancy.

Lover Awakened is utterly absorbing and deliciously erotic. The Brotherhood is the hottest collection of studs in romance, and I can't wait for the next one! -- USA Today bestseller Angela KnightBest new series I've read in years! Tautly written, wickedly sexy and just plain fun. Now here's a band of brothers who knows how to show a girl a good time. -- New York Times bestseller Lisa GardnerJ.R. Ward's unique band of brothers is to die for. I love this series! -- New York Times bestseller Suzanne BrockmannWhen it comes to tormented heroes, few can top the dangerous and tortured Zsadist. In a change of pace, it's the hero who has sexual issues resulting from his violently abusive past as a blood slave. Both the hero and heroine have suffered greatly, but it's Zsadist's journey to self-acceptance that makes this book so compelling. Ward pulls no punches in this dark, dangerous and at times tragic series. Waiting for successive installments is getting harder and harder. -- Romantic Times, Top Pick
Book three in the series
I truly am at a loss of words to relate how very much I love this book in the series. Zsadist is so misunderstood on so many levels...after a century of abuse he locked down all emotions other than hate and anger but beyond that is a socially awkward person who through great personal strength finally gets his HEA with his love who not only understands but loves him all the more for his challenges.
*HUGE SIGH* Wow, yeah, just love him!
