Duty has ruled his life. He has devoted himself to scholarship and the stewardship of his office. He is totally committed to the welfare and protection of his people. He is Noah, a fire demon, the King of demons, and one of the most powerful Nightwalkers ever born.

Surrounded by his family and loyal subjects he still holds himself apart. He controls a fearful power and learning how to keep it in check is a never-ending exercise. It is getting even more difficult as Samhain or Beltane arrives and he is still unmated. The desires that drive demons can make their control unpredictable and he is showing signs of strain. He seeks information about his mate from Kane’s Druid wife, Corrine.

Kestra doesn’t like distractions. They can be deadly. The erotic dreams that she has been having are making her edgy. Luckily she finished the job and once she is paid, she can head home until her next assignment. Her fall of shining white hair and feminine features are deceptive. Behind the beauty lies the heart of a warrior and the well-toned physique of an athlete. She is unprepared for the double-cross that may put a permanent end to her career.

Being rescued is not bad, especially when the rescuer is tall, dark and brutally handsome. The fact that he owns a castle is a big check on the plus side, but his caveman attitude has got to go. Kestra answers to no one.

Nightwalker series creator Jacquelyn Frank knows her readers are clamoring for Noah’s story. He is an integral part of the series and readers are attached to the noble King with a vested interest in his happiness. The fifth book in the series, Noah, will not disappoint. The tempestuous romance between Noah and Kestra will keep readers spellbound.

The story arc about the rebellious Ruth and her followers continues, and major characters from all the Nightwalker books make appearances. I cannot wait for the next series, Shadowdwellers, which begins in January
