Lover Revealed - J R Ward
Butch O'Neal was just an ordinary cop until, entirely by chance, he got drawn into the Black Dagger Brotherhood. Yet, whilst partly replacing the family that had treated him as an outcast after his teen-aged sister was murdered and he was the last one to see her alive, he still feels very much on the outside, with no real purpose and very few possessions. Apparently spurned by Marissa, one of the vampire elite and the woman he lusts after, he starts to believe that the best thing to do would be to disappear and start afresh, but all that changes when he defends one of the civilian vampires and is taken prisoner by The Society of Lessers and tortured to the point of death to reveal all he knows about the Brotherhood. Mortally wounded and infected by some dreadful darkness, it seems that he must die, but there are two people who are determined he should live and face a future he could never have imagined was there for him.
Probably my favourite of the BDB books so far, with a good story that reveals more about the fight between the vampires and the Lessers. There's a fair bit of sex, and if you don't like such scenes in books, then the BDB is perhaps not for you, but I don't find it too overpowering and to me it's made up for by the interesting notion of this vampire nation fighting for survival.
