Lover Awakened: A Novel of the Black Dagger Brotherhood (Collector's Edition)  - J.R. Ward

My favorite so far! Oh Zsadist how I love thee. Zsadist is another one of the brotherhoods tortured vampires. And when I say tortured, I mean tortured. He’s gotten the bad end of the stick since birth and everyone, including the rest of the brotherhood, in some ways, is scared of him. He’s hot headed and his communication and socialization skills are practically nonexistent. You will get a good look into what makes Zsadist the animal everyone thinks he is and then fall in love with him.

Bella is a vampire friend of Mary’s and was kidnapped by the Lessening Society at the end of book 2. Zsadist has made it his mission to find and rescue her. The developing romance between Zsadist and Bella is intense and the sex is off the charts! This is the kind of book I will read over and over again.
