Butch O'Neal is the only human living among the elite Black Dagger Brotherhood.  The former cop enjoys the trust the Brothers give him but he wants more.  Butch wants to contribute to the Brotherhood.  He wants to battle the Lessers. 

With his heart given to the aristocratic vampire, Marissa, Butch has nothing to lose.  He knows he can never have Marissa, for she is too far above him.  Although he must live without Marissa, Butch cannot live without his pride.   When confronted with a pack of lessers, Butch faces them head on in order to save a civilian vampire.  The Brothers would do no less and neither will he.

Butch is barely hanging on to life when he is rescued.  He has been touched by an evil so great it is feared that he cannot be saved.  In an attempt to save Butch, the Brotherhood brings Marissa to his side.  Only time will tell if Marissa's love will be enough.

Have you ever found an author that could replace chocolate?  I have.  In fact, I could give up dark and milk chocolate for more JR Ward books.  Because I must wait so long between books, it often feels as if I am being deprived of chocolate.  And that is just tortuous.  While Lover Revealed totally satisfied my lust for the Black Dagger Brotherhood, when I finished the book I cried because it was over.  I simply do not think I can survive a lengthy hiatus without more from this series. 

About Lover Revealed, I think Ms. Ward would sic a pack of Lessers on me if I gave away too much of the plot.  So I won't.  But I will tell you this.  I cried.  I pouted.  I drooled.  I wanted.  I needed.  My heart beat so hard with fear that I thought it would jump right out of my chest.  I fell crazy mad in love with Butch.  I developed a new found respect for Marissa.  I'd lay down and worship at Vishous' feet.  I ranted and raved at Havers.  The tender places in my heart sang in happiness.

I love this series.  I love the Brotherhood.  I am buying copies of Lover Revealed for everyone I know.  I can go on record now and declare that Lover Revealed will be one of my top pick books for 2007.  I adored every word!
