Publisher's Summary

The unexpected happens in an instant. On her way to work, secretary Docia Waverley hurtles into a crashing crossroads, and she quickly begins to suspect that things will never be the same. Then, when a tall, blond, muscular stranger intervenes on her behalf, telling her it is his duty to protect her at all cost, what is just a feeling turns to proof positive. That is, as long as Docia's savior doesn't turn out to be a crazed kidnapper....
When Ram finds Docia, he has no doubt that she is his queen. But as this golden warrior sweeps in to protect her, he feels something more than body heat every time they touch. He is overwhelmed by a searing connection that goes deep into the twin souls inside him. A desire rises in him that is forbidden - this woman is his queen, the mate of his king, his leader, his best friend. And yet Docia is so vulnerable and attractive that she awakens a hunger in Ram that is undeniable, a carnal craving he cannot yield to...not without risking the very survival of the Bodywalkers.

"It's ménage à everybody!" ...I was so confused

I'm a HUGE Jacquelyn Frank fan (I've read all her books in print) and I absolutely love the Nightwalkers Series. However, this new race of Bodywalkers was a bit too confusing for me. The "blending" of the bodywalker with it's host was just too weird. I couldn't seem to figure out who the "main couple" really was?? Docia/Ram? Ram/Tameri? Vincent/Docia? I just couldn't reconcile in my mind who was really in love and who was just there for the ride. At one point in the book Docia says "It's ménage à everybody!" (which made it even weirder for me)
The best part of the book was Docia's brother Jackson who has a side story.

***Spoiler Alert: He is the main character in book 2. So I will most likely give that book a try as well.

Overall, not a bad concept but execution was a little too confusing for me. I just hope book 2 is better.

If you love paranormal/romances (as I do) then you should love this and, although J.F.'s books are relatively new to Audible, I think her books are awesome. At the time of death some deserving few are given the choice of allowing an ancient Egyptian to share their bodies and they become a Bodywalker. The story builds as Docia is murdered and chooses to become a Bodywalker she wakes up and meets Vincent/Ramases (enter handsome blonde hunk) who is also a Bodywalker and there's an instant attraction. However, Ram (who is No.2 in the pecking order) thinks Docia is off limits to him because he must just protecter her as she is possessed by his Queen and she is destined for someone else - his King when he can find a suitable body to inhabit and join her.

Eventually, we find the story is ultimately about a civil war between the Politico Bodywalkers who think they should 'share' a person's body/soul and the Templars who think they should 'dominate' and completely take over a person's body once they die. Both sides have been fighting for supremacy for hundreds of years and, as they each get killed off, they have to wait for the next suitable body for them to inhabit and then they return to the fight - but this time around things are going to change.

It's got lots of great characters and creatures who all help to build a funny, sad, emotional, passionate, pleasurable and imaginative journey into this new series.

Worth a credit? If you're into a series that puts a whole new spin on the paranormal romance world then it has to be a YES and if you're a J.F. fan then it has to be a YES too.
