From New York Times bestselling author Jacquelyn Frank comes the final chapter in the Nightwalkers saga! As the momentous showdown with a powerful demon unfolds, a passionate encounter breaks the ultimate taboo. Kamen is a Bodywalker, an ancient soul reborn in one human host after another. He’s also a prisoner of his own kind: for it was Kamen who released Apep, the deadly god who threatens the existence of their world. To atone for this grievous error, Kamen accepts an urgent mission: to convince the other nations of the Nightwalkers to set aside their centuries-old conflicts and band together. If he fails, all will be lost. And no tribe presents a greater challenge than the Wraiths, the spectral beings who are feared and despised for their lethal deathtouch. Kamen makes first contact with a stunning, ghostly pale beauty named Geneviève. Part Wraith and part human, scorned as a half-breed, Viève shares the hunger for redemption—and for connection. Her scintillating touch holds the kiss of death, and yet it makes Kamen feel more alive than ever. Soon his lips are pressed against hers, sending Viève into fits of desire and forging a bond that breaches the divide between them. Now they must unite all the Nightwalkers, from Vampire and Shadowdweller to Djynns, and fast—for Apep is ready for war.

While Menes is obsessed with finding the perfect vessel for his queen, Jackson cannot stop thinking about Dr. Marissa Anderson, the gorgeous precinct shrink who keeps pushing him to confront his grief over the loss of his K-9 partner. But what Marissa really arouses most in Jackson is intense desire, which is exactly what Menes is looking for.

New York Times bestselling author Jacquelyn Frank continues her scorching and sensual new series set in the world of the Nightwalkers, where alluring entities known as Bodywalkers are the vanguards against the raging forces of darkness. As a mercenary, Leo Alvarez has signed on for a lot—but he never signed on for his best friend becoming host to the soul of an ancient Egyptian pharaoh. Jackson is now inhabited by a Bodywalker, and Leo is forced to grapple with a realm of supernatural beings far more dangerous than anything he’s ever encountered. But when Jackson is wounded by an attack from a demon god, Leo must team up with another supernatural creature—a Night Angel—to save his friend from utter destruction. With skin as black as midnight, hair as white as snow, and a body of pure perfection, the Night Angel arouses a burning desire in Leo, even as he refuses to be intimidated by her power—or the power of those who would destroy his friend.

Thousands of babies are born every day, arriving crying and wailing in a world that greets them with jubilation and happiness. Every child reinforces the future, is born innocent and brings great joy to its parents, joy that is unknown to the women whose future is blighted by a form of infertility that cannot be cured by the best medical care. Adams Choice reveals that a couples pain and agony of mind can be removed by the simple expedient of making the mans body suitable to provide the nourishing environment a baby needs. There are risks, maybe a 6-1 chance of non survival for the man because of infection but many men who love their woman say they want to do it and make their joint lives complete. Is not adoption a better way? Yes, maybe, but most couples want their own child and not the complications that too often arise when a third party is involved. In todays highly charged world of clinical research, of cloning and the numerous experimentation in the field of human fertilisation and InvitroFertilisation, doctors have all the necessary tools in their hands. They are being held back from making that one big step by fear, the fear of public disapproval and, maybe the anguish of those who see babies as purely womens work, and would consider male intervention a heinous act and one designed to demean them. It is, of course, nothing of the sort. In the years ahead, the act of chemically turning a man into a women with the use of hormonal injections, may become as celebrated as the first arrival of The Pill, an event that gave freedom, of a kind, to women. Nobody wants a Frankenstein sort of baby laboratory but we all want to help those women whose strongest, most important human emotion and desire, the wish to have a baby, is too often being cruelly thwarted. After all, nothing is more precious in our society than a baby, especially our own baby.
