In the shadows of the night in Caldwell, New York there's a war raging between vampires and their slayers. There exists a secret band of brothers like no other-six vampire warriors, defender of their race. But now an ally of the Brotherhood is about to encounter his own dark desire...

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. He's got nothing to lose. His heart belongs to a female vampire, Marissa, an aristocratic beauty who's way out of his league. If he can't have her, then at least he can fight side by side with the Brothers...

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 Marissa to bring him back. But even her love may not be enough to save him...

My Review:
Butch O Neal is a ex cop and the only mortal a part of the Brotherhood circle. Butch after certain events being brought into the Black Dagger Brotherhood, fell in love with a woman, who has held his heart ever since he met her. Now not having her in his life, he still feels the loss. Then when he leasts expects he he gets kindapped by some lessers and by the Omega. After the Omega opens him up and puts a part of himself into Butch, Butch knew he would never be the same ever again. He is then found by his friends of the Brotherhood, and taken to a doctor, since it is obvious to all that he has been changed. And there is only one person that can truly help him now....his lost love Marissa where only her love will save him, and take them on a journey that will change both of their lives for all time.

This is one of my favorites of this series so far, from the first pages, I was entranced. I have always wanted to read Butch's story, and now that I have, I am so glad that I did read his story. I loved this story where Butch finds a inner strength within himself that he never expected was there. Where the only one that truly saved him was Marissa, whom he has loved truly. Marissa is a vampire and has always feared hurting Butch. But when she is summoned to his side, she realizes how much Butch means to her. As their reconnect with one another, they will discover that their love is enough to give them strength to last all the struggles they will face as long as they face them together. This was a truly intense but emotional love story, that is a real treat to read.

    I see a lot of JR Ward but haven't gotten to it yet. Right now I am reading Mozart's Blood by Louise Marley -- it is an interesting premise.
