Publisher's Summary

He'd never loved. But she was irresistible.
As reigning Vampire Prince, Damien has tasted every pleasure the world has to offer - consorting with kings and queens and delighting in sensual adventure. Now, tired of such pursuits, he devotes his energies to protecting his people. The war between human necromancers and Nightwalkers has escalated, and when the enemy makes a daring move, kidnapping Syreena, a Lycanthrope Princess, Damien boldly follows. He succeeds in rescuing her, but is unprepared for the erotic longing her lush sensuality awakens in him.
Gifted with rare abilities, Syreena grew up in a cloistered setting and was forbidden to form attachments to others, yet the connection Damien feels with her is immediate, intoxicating, and impossible for either to resist. But claiming Syreena as his mate could have shattering repercussions for every Nightwalker - and leave their enemies more dangerous than ever before.

Mixing Vampire and Lycanthrope Blood ... oh no!!

What did you like best about this story?

This story follows Damien, the Vampire Prince and Syreena, the Lycanthrope Princess as they develop a never-before-known relationship. Syreena is brutally attacked by Ruth the Demon and Damien tries to save her. Because she is bleeding and they are alone, the only way Damien knows to stop her bleeding is to drink from her and inject her with his coagulation serum. But drinking from other Nightwalkers is strictly forbidden in the vampire world. It will have consequences. Are the consequences worth it to save the beautiful lycanthrope princess? Will taking her blood kill him? Once again, Jacqueline Frank has surpassed normal Vampire and Shapeshifter norms. She does tie in with old myths and legends, but still it is not common place for two different species to mix. This is the third time she has mixed species with very interesting results. I can’t wait to find out the results of all this mixing of genes and abilities. Very interesting ….


What about Xe Sands’s performance did you like?

Xe Sands has narrated all the books in this series so far. I must admit, I have become quite the fan of Xe Sands and her enthralling story telling voice. I love the way she reads the romantic (and sometimes erotic) passages. When you think about someone telling a love story, this is the voice you imagine doing it! Sultry, passionate, and hot!

My Favorite Nightwalker

Xe Sands excels with narrating this series. Each character, and there are many, has a unique voice which is the accent from the country of their origin. Can I guarantee accent authenticity? No, but I???d listen to this series just to hear Sands voicing them. Plus she brings the couple, their feelings and the circumstances, to life in a way that is beyond my abilities. And that???s hard to do, I read in Technicolor.

When it comes to audiobooks narration is what is most important to me but if your in need of an overview of the story here's mine.

Damien, Prince of the Vampires, enters the interspecies marrying loop in Jacquelyn Frank???s fourth Nightwalker entry. Damien is my favorite in this series for two reasons. First, it keeps moving, whether by dialogue or action and without the verboseness that irked me previously. Second, it could slide onto a bookshelf at Goodreads entitled ???avid seduction of a hesitant heroine???. Damien truly is a prince when it comes to his pursuit of Syreena. That he made her pay some dues was excellent ??? I loved him.

Damien is the acknowledged leader of the Vampires, but it???s a role that keeps him looking over his shoulder. Syreena, the Lycanthrope princess, has always longed for a husband and family, but Fate???s choice throws her. Damien readily accepts the bond between them and Syreena is captivated but she wants definitive proof that the bond is possible between their races. That proof may be found in the recently discovered Nightwalker library but working to unite the Nightwalker???s against their expanding enemy comes first.
