Publisher's Summary

As a healer, he knows her body. But it's her heart he wants. For a thousand years, Gideon has healed his people. And as the oldest surviving male of his race, his wisdom has always been respected without question. But Gideon knows that even he is vulnerable to the powerful, primitive desires that befall his kind during Hallowed moons---and nine years ago that truth was hammered home when he found himself claiming Magdalena, the Demon King's sister, in a wild embrace. Horrified by his lack of control, he left her wanting and furious---and then exiled himself for the better part of a decade. Now, with necromancers threatening his people---and Magdalena nearly their victim---Gideon must face another truth. He and the beautiful, stubborn Magdalena are destined to be together, to share a love as deep and old as time itself. But first he needs to regain her trust. Then he'll have to save her life.

Steamy romance with Demons!

I really enjoyed this 2nd story of the Nightwalker Series. Jacquelyn Frank continues with the world of she created of Demons and other Nightwalkers. In this story we get a little bit more of vampires and lycanthropes.

I enjoyed the romance between the demons Gideon and Magdelegna. I wasn’t sure if they would overcome themselves and allow love to blossom. Gideon being the oldest demon around is referred to as the Ancient. Magdelegna is only 250 years old, so she is considered very young. A child as far as Gideon is concerned and it will take a lot of work for him to finally start thinking of her any other way … regardless of what he feels. Magdelegna believes that Gideon is unfeeling, uncaring, and too detached to have real feelings about her.

I enjoyed that Jacquelyn Frank did not just decide that Gideon and Madgelegna should fall in love and throw them in bed together. Romance is something that is best savored over time.

Besides Gideon and Magdelegna trying to step carefully around each other, someone has brutally attacked Bella. This leads Gideon to speak with the vampire Prince Damien and the lycanthrope Queen Siena.

I enjoyed learning about vampires and the lycanthropes. I can’t wait to read more about them and their abilities! I have to wonder if Prince Damien and Queen Siena will find love amongst the Demons.

Although I didn’t enjoy this as much as the first, it was still a really good story. I enjoyed Xe Sands narration once again. Her voice is very pleasing and really draws you into the emotion of the moment.

It's all about the Narration

The narration of this series is what pulls me into the books, the stories may be over the top but listening to Xe Sands bring these characters to life with the perfect accents and character development equals pure listening enjoyment.
