The power of love.
Lover Unleashed by @J.R.Ward.
This series gets even better with each story. Please don’t pick this book up unless you can hunker down and ignore everything around you. I had real problems putting it down. This is the 9th book in the Blackdagger Brotherhood series. The story of Payne, daughter of the Scribe Virgin and twin sister of the brother V. Payne has injured her spine and is paralyzed from the waist down. Manny is human surgeon who gets drafted in to help her. The medicine he uses is unusual. Quite a bedside manner. V is having real problems trying to sort his emotional reactions to everything that is happening around him and is tempted to go back to an old lifestyle.
We are introduced to Xcor a vampire from the old country and his band of bastard soldiers. He comes to the new world to hunt for the glowing female who killed his father.
The book also has the continuing. stories of the rest of the Brotherhood, and we meet someone who plays a very big role in one of the Fallen Angels books.
The book is a rollercoaster of action and emotion. The energy is so high trying to find a place to stop reading so you can do things like eat and sleep is near impossible. I am completely addicted to this series and the Fallen Angels by this marvellously talented author.
