Jacob, the enforcer for an ancient race of demons, must now punish his brother. Unfortunately, demons have a hard time controlling themselves during the full moons of Beltane and Samhain and lust after humans. When a demon steps out of line, Jacob is charged with punishing the demon and saving the human.

Later, when another demon is trapped by magic welding humans, Jacob is given the task of locating him and ending his torment. Unfortunately, when a demon is the victim of magic, he becomes a monster and the magic welder or necromancer forces the demon to do his bidding. During his search, Jacob saves a lovely young woman from a tragic fall. This woman, Isabella, senses where the demon and necromancer are to be found and Jacob takes her with him. Is the strong attraction Jacob feels for the human moon madness or something more, and can Isabella help save demon-kind from the necromancers?

I loved JACOB: THE NIGHTWALKERS! It has wonderful characters and an exciting plot, which kept me up way past my bedtime and left me wanting the next story--NOW. Jacob, because he is the enforcer for his race, is a figure that evokes fear. Therefore, he has few friends and is forced to be a loner, and he feels his ostracism deeply. Isabella has never fit into the human world and is something of a misfit. Fortunately, Isabella is no weakling and uses her strength, both mentally and physically, to save Jacob and herself several times. While Jacob is an alpha and protective, he doesn't overpower Isabella, and they learn to work together and become true partners. JACOB: THE NIGHTWALKERS is one of my favorite reads for 2006, and I can't wait for the next book in this marvelous series. Run don't walk to get your copy of JACOB: THE NIGHTWALKERS, you'll be glad you did.

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 man makes certain to uphold this ancient law: Jacob, the Enforcer…

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.
