#1 New York Times bestselling author J.R. Ward's ferociously inventive series continues as the most fearsome member of the Black Dagger Brotherhood discovers just how tempting the night can be... A former blood slave, Zsadist still bears the scars from a past filled with suffering and humiliation. Renowned for his unquenchable fury and sinister deeds, he is a savage feared by humans and vampires alike. Anger is his only companion, and terror is his only passion--until he rescues a beautiful female from the evil Lessening Society.

Bella is instantly entranced by the Brother's seething power. Except even as their desire for each other begins to overtake them, Zsadist's thirst for vengeance against her abductor drives him to the brink of madness. Now Bella must help her lover not only overcome the wounds of his tortured past, but find a future with her...

    Lover Awakened is the third book in the Black Dagger Brotherhood series by J.R.Ward and tells Zsadists story. Zsadist was abducted and sold into slavery as a child and the story of his time as a Blood Slave to the Mistress, and his eventual rescue, are told in the form of flashbacks in between events of the present day. Bella is still captive in the Lessening Societys persuasion centre until a civilian vampire manages to escape and alert the Brotherhood. Zsadist brings her home and Bella is entranced by him despite his reputation for violence. Apart from the hot sex between these two, Ward also manages to include a few other things in the plot to keep the reader turning pages: that pesky O manages to kill two vampires close to the Brotherhood; one of the Brotherhood disappears; Phury cuts off his beautiful hair; John Matthew finds out about his bloodline and starts to face his demons; Butch takes a drink of a different kind; and we meet Bellas brother Rehvenge. Still the names with the extra aitches, gimmicky but it fits in with the whole world Ward has created. I loved the effect of Bellas going into her needing on the household of men. The next instalment, Lover Revealed, tells Butch ONeals story.
