Gideon by Jacquelyn Frank is the second book in her Nightwalkers series. From the back cover~

They're called the Nightwalkers-proud, ancient beings who live in the shadows, existing just beyond the human world. But there are also dangerous humans who hunt them-necromancers who use the blackest magic to manipulate them. And for a Demon named Gideon, the battle against these evil forces will soon be all too personal...

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 Magdelegna, 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 Magdelegna nearly their victim-Gideon must face another truth. He and the beautiful, stubborn Magdelegna 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...Every night holds secrets.

I loved Gideon's story. The love and passion between Gideon and Magdelegna jumped off the pages. Frank tells so much in one book, that you want to read every book in the series to find out all about the characters. Gideon is so misunderstood by the Demon people that only Magdelgna truly understands him. We meet other Nightwalker species in Gideon's story and I look forward to finding out more about each of these groups. Frank gives the reader another wonderful paranormal romance with elements of mystery to keep the reader glued to the pages.
