Title: Lover Revealed
Series: Black Dagger Brotherhood
Author: J. R. Ward

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…

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 but found by a miracle, the Brotherhood calls on Marissa to bring him back, though even her love may not be enough to save him…

“That’s you,“ Wrath said. You shall be called the Black Dagger warrior Dhestroyer, descended of Wrath son of Wrath.”
“But you’ll always be Butch to us,” Rhage cut in. “As well as hard-ass. Smart-ass. Royal pain in the ass. You know, whatever the situation calls for. I think as long as there’s an ASS in there, it’ll be accurate.”

“The Brotherhood was strong, a unit. A powerful force in their world for good. And so too were the females. Strong. A unit. A powerful force for good in their world.”

“I liked you, cop. From the moment I met you. No… not the first moment. I wanted to kill you when I first met you. But then I liked you. A lot.”

“Butch repositioned the Sox cap, and as his wrist passed by his nose, he got another whiff of himself. “Ah, V. . . listen, there is something a little weird going down on me.”
“What?”
“I smell like men’s cologne.”
“Good for you. Females dig that kind of thing.”
“Vishous, I smell like Obsession for Men, only I’m not WEARING any, you feel me?”
There was silence on the line. Then, “Humans don’t bond.”
“Oh, really. You want to tell that to my central nervous system and my sweat glands? They’d appreciate the news flash, I’m sure.”

“All right, then, her first rule for the rest of her days: no more looking outside for definitions. She might not have any clue who she was, but better to be lost and searching than shoved into a social box by someone else.”
