Jacob

Jacob by Jacquelyn Frank is the first book in her The Nightwalkers series. From the back cover~

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 make makes certain to uphold this ancient law:Jacob, the Enforcer...

For 700 years he as resisted temptation. But not tonight...

Jacob knows the excuses his people give when the madness overtakes them an 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.

I really enjoyed the first Nightwalker story, which focuses on the Demons. There was much of the Demon history that was given in the first book, plus we met many of the most important characters for the series(many already have their own books). Jacob and Isabella have a very symbiotic relationship that explodes off the pages. Isabella was a librarian before meeting Jacob, so she is the perfect person to help look into the history of the Demons. Isabella finds something that totally changes the world of all Demons in the future. Isabella and Jacob find a love and passion with each other that goes beyond any laws.

I'm late to this series and can only thank my cousin for telling be about the books. She told me the series was wonderful and I can only agree. I look forward to reading the rest of the series and seeing if each of the Nightwalkers can find their own true loves like Jacob and Isabella.
