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)
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 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.
After listening to this book it made me want a demon of my own. The sexy voice the narrator gave touched me like Jacob was talking directly to me.
I was concerned that I would not find another series that could compare to the Black Dagger Brotherhood series, but I was not disappointed with this book. I quickly bought the remaining books, and I have enjoyed each and every one of them!
This is a really good series to read, I would def. recomend it. This is one of my fav
I enjoyed the story, but the author is awful. She is monotoned and sounds like a TTS program.
I loved the relationship between the main characters. It was something different in how the world is set up and how the characters ended up in our world.
The initial meeting when she is looking out the window. It's such a simple way to meet, but really works well.
She was great at being able to switch accents quickly. Each character was so distinct and the emotions really came through.
Several time I started laughing because the characters in the world just act ridiculous, but it fits more than if they acted normally.
Sassy dialogue, humor, and a great reader are important to me.
I had to stop!! My listening time is not enough to finish this one. If you like this author, then this is for you. The males characters are fun, but the female lead, Bella, Ohhha! I like strong confident leads. Winey heroines that come through at the finish just do not appeal to me as they come off weak and it gets boring to listening to how they are just so afraid.This is the start of a series and the male leads have a lot of potential. Make no mistake, these are romances first with a paranormal story. You must love this type of fantasy reads. This author has a tremendous amounts of tenderness that can come off as weakness to listeners who like strong female warriors. If you like tenderness,then this series maybe for you.
I have multiple dozens of un listen books. I purchased this book to get an introduction to both author and reader. I have many books, all by a handful of readers so I try to experiment to find another Natalie Ross or Gabra Zackman. Ms Anna Fields is no longer with us and is greatly missed.
Absolutely not. Unless it is an old book and I know the story. Not sure why Xe reads in such a breathy voice. Male characters Ok, but I just could not finish due to story and female voice.
You can tell Ms Frank wants a series, well, what author would not. Few can even get it going. All the males look like they may spin off to a good story, but for my taste, Ms Frank lacks the punch. She has the humor and maybe the readers timing was not right to fully grasp the delivery. Hence you do not know if it is the reader or the author that is at fault.
