"Payne, twin sister of Vishous, is cut from the same dark warrior cloth as her brother. Because she is a fighter by nature, and a maverick when it comes to the traditional role of Chosen females, there is no place for her on the Far Side ... and no role for her on the front lines of the war, either. When she suffers a paralyzing injury, human surgeon Dr. Manuel Manello is called in to treat her as only he can--and he soon gets sucked into her dangerous secret world. Although he never before believed in things that go bump in the night--like vampires--he finds himself more than willing to be seduced by the powerful female who marks both his body and his soul. As the two find so much more than an erotic connection, the human and vampire worlds collide ... just as a centuries-old score catches up with Payne and puts both her love and her life in deadly jeopardy"-- Provided by publisher.

Was a good and powerful story. I liked that it wasn't draggy and i loved the characters Payne and Manuel. Not characters from the Brotherhood, but rather a story of based on those surrounding the Brotherhood, very beautifully written.

Not the best, but still readable.

9th of the Black Dagger Brotherhood - Payne and Manny. This one is not as good as some of the others but still good. I like what happens to V and Jane - exactly what I was waiting for but didn't know it.

Not the strongest in the series but still an enjoyable read.

It took me a bit longer than usual to warm up to this book. Payne seemed uncharacteristically prissy at the beginning - like she was in fact one of the Chosen rather than the tough female who'd sparred with Wrath in the previous novels. I also didn't really appreciate the connection between Payne and Manny. It seemed a bit shallow. Not as fleshed out as the connection the other Brothers have with their females. I was glad to read about V/Butch/Jane, the Band of Bastards, and Blay/Saxton/Qhuinn.

Amazing!! Very interesting to learn more about Payne etc, and these strange new warriors from older times.
I can't wait for the newest in the series 'Lover Reborn' to arrive!!

This is almost as much a Vishous/Jayne/Butch story as it is a Payne/Manny story. But then, how can you seperate twins when one twin is the patient of the other twin's mate.

Yet another exciting addition to the Black Dagger Brotherhood series that is sure to please all romantic fantasy lovers. The plot line continues to develop as new characters are added to the existing larger than life characters. Ward's witty use of metaphors and flowery prose creates a fascinating picturesque story. A definite page turner.

Payne, twin sister of Vishous, is cut from the same dark, seductive cloth as her brother. Imprisoned for eons by their mother, the Scribe Virgin, she finally frees herself - only to face a devastating injury. Manuel Manello, MD, is drafted by the Brotherhood to save her as only he can - but when the human surgeon and the vampire warrior meet, their two worlds collide in the face of their undeniable passion. With so much working against them, can love prove stronger than the birth right and the biology that separate them?

Vishous has some real problems. First, Mommy-dearest has hidden his twin from him since he was three. Second, his sister is now paralyzed due to a training accident. Third he can't go after the guy who hurt his sister, because its Wrath, who is blind, his king, and a close friend. Fourth, his sister wants him to kill her if she can't be healed. Fifth, he is now fighting with Jane, because she tried a physician-assisted suicide on Payne that he walked in on. And last of all the stuff going down is that his baby sister is...Um, Yeah with her orthopededic surgeon Manny. With all the stress he's under he really needs a good BDSM session. But he can't Dom himself effectively, Jane can't take him as far as he needs to go, and the only person he trusts to take him that far is the one person he won't ask. After all, how exactly do you ask a good Irish-Catholic Vampire who happens to be your best friend that you need him to break you?

"Oh...$#!+. Don't crank my crap out and tell me they've hooked up. I'm waiting for you to tell me I'm wrong about this. Still Waiting."---Wrath
