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

Ruthless and brilliant, Vishous, son of the Bloodletter, possesses a destructive curse and a frightening ability to see the future. As a pretrans growing up in his father’s war camp he was tormented and abused. As a member of the Brotherhood, he has no interest in love or emotion, only the battle with the Lessening Society.

But when a mortal injury puts him in the care of human surgeon, Dr. Jane Whitcomb compels him to reveal his inner pain and taste true pleasure for the first time-until a destiny he didn’t choose takes him into a future that cannot include her…

“Take off your coat.”
“Excuse me?”
“Take it off.”
“I want it off.”
“Then I suggest you hold your breath. Won’t affect me in the slightest, but at least the suffocation will help pass the time for you.”

“Terrific. A bisexual dominant vampire with kidnapping expertise.”

“I love you. And I’m going to keep loving you even after you don’t know I exist.”

“I believe there’s a hand that guides us. It just isn’t always a gentle one. Or one that seems fair at the time. But I dunno, I try to trust in it now. When I freak, I just try to… shit, I guess trust in it. Because at the end of the day, what else can you do? Choice only gets you so far. Reasoning and planning too. The rest… it’s up to someone else. Where we end up, who we know, what happens to the people we love… we don’t have a lot of control over any of it.”

“If you eliminate all possible explanations, then the impossible is the answer.”

“If you’re going to insist on being reasonable, I’m going to stop hanging with you.”

“But then, gifts are like beauty, are they not. It is in the eye of the recipient that they find their seat, not in the hand of the giver.”

“Cause nothing said ‘I love you’ like a shitload of motion detectors.”

“Gimme an S! A T! An O! A C! Followed by a K-H-O-L-M! What’s it spell? HEAD FUCK.”

“A book unopened alters not the ink on its pages. What is there is there.”

“Falling into ruin was a bit like falling in love: Both descents stripped you bare and left you as you were at your core. And both endings are equally painful.”

“An active mind didn’t need distractions in its physical environment. It needed a collection of outstanding books and a good lamp. Maybe some cheese and crackers.”

“But then, gifts are like beauty, are they not? It is in the eye of the recipient that they find their seat, not in the hand of the giver.”

“I’m going to love you so good and so long you’re gonna be convinced no earthly thing could have brought us together”
