Book 2 in the Black Dagger Brotherhood Series
In this series, there are vampires, who are born, and lessers, who are made. The lessers are soulless, evil beings out to destroy the vampires. The Black Dagger Brotherhood is a class of vampire, warriors who are born into the Brotherhood. The men are bigger and more powerful than the common vampires.
This book is about Rhage. Rhage was cursed to carry a draggon-type being with him. When he looses control, he turns into a dragon. The dragon is all rage and fury and will harm/eat anyone in his path. It is this curse that makes it especially hard when he falls for the very fragil human, Mary.
The suffering, the very beautiful, Rhage goes through over years trying to gain control of the dragon's rage make him a very sympathic hero. He falls for the average, nothing special woman and treats her like a queen, caring for her and protecting her even when it harm himself. I love the broken, self-sacrificing, georgeous hero falls for the regular girl romances. Great Stuff!
