Since time began, there have been Nightwalkers - the races of the night who live in the shadows of the moonlight. Love with humans is absolutely forbidden, and one man makes certain to uphold this ancient law: Jacob, the Enforcer.
For 700 years, he has resisted temptation. But not tonight... Jacob knows the excuses his people give when the madness overtakes them and they fall prey to their lust for humans. He's heard every one and still brought the trespassers to justice. Immune to forbidden desires, uncontrollable hungers, or the curse of the moon, his control is total... until the moment he sees Isabella on a shadowy New York City street. Saving her life wasn't in his plans. Nor were the overwhelming feelings she arouses in him. But the moment he holds her in his arms and feels the soft explosion of her body against his, everything changes. Their attraction is undeniable, volatile, and completely against the law. Suddenly everything Jacob has ever believed is inflamed by the heat of desire. Bring on the night.

"I loved this book!" (Christine Feehan)
I am a mother of 16 yr old twins..Mikael&Miranda. My kids think I am a big dork listening to my books. I love to read but its nice to read twice as many books and listen while working.
I loved this love story and can't wait to listen to the rest of the series! I don't know if I would have stuck with the book if I had read it. For me a little slow in the beginning, but I truly love the characters.
I'm addicted to Audible. May need an intervention!
Sexy, enthralling and captivating.
I have all of Charlaine Harris' books (Sookie, Lilly Bard, Aurora Teagarden and Harper Connelly) and, I can't believe I'm saying this, I think I like this book better.
The first time I listened to the book, I thought the narration was terrible. I had to listen a 2nd time because I kept falling asleep. The 2nd time, I enjoyed listening to the husky accents she gives the demons. I just finished listening a third time and have decided it's time to get the 2nd book in the series, Gideon.
kindle lover already
I have read this book, and listened to this recording on a couple of driving trips. It brought a new perspective to the story, hearing someone voice their interpretation of characters' voices!! Not necessarily what I had imagined in my head, and it made the story fresh.
Say something about yourself!
i loved this story line. action, adventure and romance all good. i was totally hooked from the beginning.
I was looking for a new series, I was tired of all the young adult books. After several duds I finally found this GREAT series! It is dark, seductive & keeps you on the edge of your seat. You can't wait to see what will happen between Jacob & Isabella. I can't wait to read the next book!!!
This is a series that will rival Nalini Singh's changeling series. I have enjoyed all the books and am awaiting the next in the series. A refreshing twist on demons, vampires, and werewolves.
I liked the book well enough but I have to tell you I don't know if I'll read/listen to any more of this author's books. She likes to just tell you a story too much and doesn't like to involve the players. There's just too often that you have to go for pages and pages without anyone saying anything. I know a lot of you enjoy that but I don't happen to be one of those. I liked Jacob and Bella and they made it a wonderful love story. I do get tired of so much angst and misunderstandings and this didn't have that. I guess that's what helped to get past the pages of no dialogue. I also liked Noah, Gideon and Legna, too.
The narrator did a good job with the voices but not so much with emotions. And emotions are what really make the book. IMHO
I was unable to get through the 2nd chapter because it literally put me to sleep at 10 am. There is no definition between characters. The narrator made no discernable voice inflections to separate the characters, male or female all were given the same sound, monotone. the story didnt really start anywhere, rather like hearing a few sentences of a disjointed conversation you have no interest in. It wasnt worth a credit, wasnt of value if free. I read to be entertained, educated or research..... not to replace warm milk to put me to sleep.
Very dissapointing. I am not into books about demons and had I known that these books were of the sort I would not have wasted my time or money. I did not even get into the second chapter when I realized just what I was listening to. What was even more heart wrenching was when I learned the author used Biblical names for her demon characters. Making demons the good guys... please spare me. If your a God fearing person do not waste your time on this series. Shame on you Jacquelyn Frank for your attempt to demonize the innocent.
Very high up there.
The end of they books when Bella finds out she is pregnant.
Everything, she is outstanding. One of Audibles best.
Loved they entire book.
This was one great listen. It takes a while for the love story of Jacob and Bella to hit full swing but when it does, all I can say is "WOW". Loved it so much that I bought the 2nd book in the series.
