Lover Unleashed (Black Dagger Brotherhood, #9)

Lover Unleashed by J.R. Ward

My rating: 5 of 5 stars.

Payne, twin sister of Vishous, is cut from the same dark, warrior cloth as her brother: A fighter by nature, and a maverick when it comes to the traditional role of Chosen females, there is no place for her on the Far Side… and no role for her on the front lines of the war, either. 

When she suffers a paralyzing injury, human surgeon Dr. Manuel Manello is called in to treat her as only he can- and he soon gets sucked into her dangerous, secret world. Although he never before believed in things that go bump in the night- like vampires- he finds himself more than willing to be seduced by the powerful female who marks both his body and his soul.

As the two find so much more than an erotic connection, the human and vampire worlds collide … just as a centuries old score catches up with Payne and puts both her love and her life in deadly jeopardy. 

BLURB: Lover Unleashed

So good and with surprising reveals!

So much happens in these books it is like a few books in one. The story of Payne and Manny was much better than the than I expected it to be. He was brought in to operate on her after she broke her back and had to be brought to the Mansion from the Sanctuary.

Payne and Manuel feel a connection right away, but she is struggling with being paralyzed since it is like being imprisoned in your body, when she is a warrior and needs to be active. Plus she is finally free of her mother and Sanctuary, yet stuck in a hospital bed. Prior to the surgery she made V promise to kill her if she ends up stuck that way. Jane knows there is no way Vishous can handle that.

As it is, Vishous is spiraling. He is crazy angry at the Scribe Virgin (his Mom) already for keeping the fact that she was his Mom from him and giving him to the Bloodletter for all those years growing up, but now finding out that she kept a twin sister from him puts him in a rage. He just wants pain and doesn’t know how to deal.

Bloodletters other son, Xcor and his group of Vampires, after ridding Europe of Lessers, have come across the Pond to destroy the King. They are setting up a meeting with the Glymera to try to win favor over the Brotherhood. They have also hit the streets slaughtering lessers. Xcor has been searching for Payne ever since she assassinated the Bloodletter to pay her back for killing his father in cold blood.

Quinn is still pining for Blaylock and Blay is still with Quinn’s cousin, but Loves Quinn. Quinn thinks it is wrong for some reason. Stupid, really, since it seems to be fine to have sex with Men or Women, just not be in a relationship with a man. Crazy. But poor Quinn is so messed up from the fact that his family didn’t love him because he was not perfect and had different colored eyes. I fear it will be a vey long road for him.
