Damien by Jacquelyn Frank is the next book in her Nightwalker series. From the back cover.~

They are the Nightwalkers, mysterious beings who dwell in the shadows of our world, and Damien, the Vampire Prince, is among the most powerful of them all. But one woman will tempt him with a desire unlike anything he as known, and together they will face a terrifying and relentless foe...

As reigning Vampire Prince, Damien has tasted every pleasure the world has to offer-consorting with kings and queens and delighting in sensual adventure. Now, tired of such pursuits, he devotes his energies to protecting his people. The war between human necromancers and Nightwalkers has escalated, and when the enemy makes a daring move, kidnapping Syreena, a Lycanthroped Princess, Damien boldly follows. He succeeds in rescuing her, but is unprepared for the erotic longing her lush sensuality awakens in him.

Gifted with rare abilities, Syreena grew up in a cloistered setting and was forbidden to form attachments to others, yet the connection Damien feels with her is immediate, intoxicating, and impossible for either to resist. But claiming Syreena as his mate could have shattering repercussions for every Nightwalker-and leave their enemies more dangerous than ever before...

I really enjoyed the continuing story of the Nightwalkers. Damien and Syreena are drawn to one another from their first meeting. Being from different Nightwalker species, they both fight the attraction initially. Once Syreena is kidnapped by a traitor, Damien steps in to save her, not realizing he is saving them both. The passion between Damien and Syreena explodes off the pages. It was fun to watch each of them learn how to trust and love another, as neither had ever had much experience with either of those emotions.

I loved Damien and look forward to reading Noah soon. I believe Noah is the final book in the Nightwalker series, but I will continue to read books by Jacquelyn Frank in the future.
