Lover Unleashed (Black Dagger Brotherhood, Book 9) - J.R. Ward Payne surprised me. I don't like the trend towards aggressive and physically violent women as heroines and I expected Payne to be that. Instead, her story was touching and interesting. I also enjoyed the sub-plot dealing with Dr Jane and Vishous marriage (although I am stil bitterly disappointed in Jane's state of existence - as a Goddess, the Scribe Virgin could surely have found a better solution for the tragedy that befell her son's wife!) The violence at times is getting a bit too violent and descriptive, but I skip those pages. Overall, an enjoyable read, with a some interesting new developments.
