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.

Isabella shares an apartment in the Bronx with her sister.  She tends to be a bit of a loner, a bookworm, can't seem to find that special someone.  While gazing out at the moon, she once again has that restless feeling that something is just missing from her.  Then she spots him, an absolutely gorgeous man dressed impeccably and walking at midnight in her not so safe neighborhood.  While leaning out a bit too far from her fifth floor window she tumbles right into this delicious man's arms, but he isn't just any man, he's Jacob the Demon Enforcer out to find the necromancer that summoned and his fellow demon Saul and Saul as well, who has in all likelihood been transformed beyond hope of recovery.

Jacob has a job, to keep all demons in line when it's the full moon, away from humans and the harm they might inflict upon them.  The moon provokes them to fulfill their lustful feelings and humans would not survive it.  He has had to punish his friends and family, and it pains him that he is viewed in fear.  He himself has no time for women, till Isabella falls into his arms.

The two together find out that they are a prophecy coming to fruition and they will fight the evil together.

I like this book, first time reading Frank and she was pretty good, sometimes it got a little goofy but that was ok, I'll continue with the series in the future when I'm in the mood for some light fun.  The characters were entertaining and I enjoyed getting to know them.
