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 really, really enjoyed this story! I was surprised to learn that this was Jacquelyn Frank’s first novel. She did an excellent job of creating a world of Demons and other Nightwalkers.
This story revolved around Jacob the Enforcer of the Demons and his unnatural attraction to Isabella. Unnatural because Jacob is a demon and Isabella is a human librarian and the Demon laws forbid him from pursuing his interest in Isabella. Not only do the laws forbid the interaction between species, but he is the one that is supposed to enforce the law!
I love the compelling attraction that Jacob and Isabella have for each other. I love the romance that draws out between them. In this first book of the series, there is a lot of ground laying facts and information so you can fully grasp the demon world and laws. Ms. Frank also gives you information regarding the different type of demons and the powers that they have. Even though you are given this information, there is enough that wasn’t given to make you curious and want to read more.
I think the narrator Xe Sands did a great job narrating this story. Her voice was easy to listen to and the characters were easily distinguishable from each other. Xe Sands has one of those voices that has great inflections and she was able to draw me into the story right away. To be honest, I actually thought there was more than one narrator, but that’s a good thing.
I will definitely be going on to the next in the series!

This was an excellent way to re-visit this fantastic introduction to one of my favorites series, it was great to see these characters brought to life by the expert narration of Xe Sands. I love the way audio adds a different dimension to a book when is well performed. Great Paranormal Romance, hot, hot.
