Butch O'Neal is a fighter by nature. A hard-living ex-homicide cop, he's the only human ever to be allowed in the inner circle of the Black Dagger Brotherhood. And he wants to go even deeper into the vampire world-to engage in the turf war with the lessers. His heart belongs to a female vampire, Marissa, an aristocratic beauty who's way out of his league. And if he can't have her, then at least he can fight side by side with the Brothers. But fate curses him with the very thing he wants. When Butch sacrifices himself to save a civilian vampire from the slayers, he falls prey to the darkest force in the war. Left for dead, he's found by a miracle, and the Brotherhood calls on Marissa to bring him back, though even her love may not be enough to save him.
So yeah...LOVE HIM. I am sure that I am not the only person out there who reads this series and totally falls in love with each character for each book. Butch I have liked since we first met him in Dark Lover and he has grown so very much. His issues with his longing to belong and for Marissa and the battle within himself for the new connection to the lessening society thanks to the Omega.
I honestly love the friendship and the bond between Butch and Vishous that has carried through and continues on....
Gotta be honest, Marissa is not one of my fav leading females in this series but she's still cool. And I love that we finally get introduced to Xhex in this book and we Rhev (who irritates the shit out of me in this book bec he's all about Marissa and that's just not cool, bec they are so very wrong for each other ;p) *purr*
