TLC Book Tours Book Review: Forbidden

Series: The World of Nightwalkers
Mass Market Paperback: 352 pages
Publisher: Ballantine Books (October 30, 2012)

Review Copy Provided By: TLC Book Tours
From New York Times bestselling author Jacquelyn Frank comes this first book in The World of the Nightwalkers—an exciting and sensual new spin-off series in which the Bodywalkers, an ancient race of the night, battles the evil forces who prey on them.

The unexpected happens in an instant. On her way to work, secretary Docia Waverley hurtles into a crashing crossroads, and she quickly begins to suspect that things will never be the same. Then, when a tall, blond, muscular stranger intervenes on her behalf, telling her it is his duty to protect her at all cost, what is just a feeling turns to proof positive. That is, as long as Docia’s savior doesn’t turn out to be a crazed kidnapper.
When Ram finds Docia, he has no doubt that she is his queen. But as this golden warrior sweeps in to protect her, he feels something more than body heat every time they touch. He is overwhelmed by a searing connection that goes deep into the twin souls inside him. A desire rises in him that is forbidden—this woman is his queen, the mate of his king, his leader, his best friend. And yet Docia is so vulnerable and attractive that she awakens a hunger in Ram that is undeniable, a carnal craving he cannot yield to . . . not without risking the very survival of the Bodywalkers.

Review: It is so hard to pull my eyes away from the book cover. But really, The World of Nightwalkers! It is a great place to be, especially if you like novels of a paranormal persuasion. This is a spin off from a previous series, and I hope if I get time, I'll be able to go back and read that series as well. Not to worry, you don't need to read that series to love this one.

The book starts off a bit slow, but trust me, when it gets going, it really is worth the wait.

I love the mixture of paranormal and mythology that Frank blends in this book. It makes for a unique read. This isn't your typical vampires, mummies and the holy ghost sort of fair.

If you are looking for a new series to dive into, this should be the one.
