Adam By Jacquelyn Frank

Adam (Nightwalkers #6)

Genre: Paranormal Romance


Hunted by magic, beset by evil, the Nightwalkers face their darkest hour yet. And when the unthinkable happens, only one legendary male has the power, the will, to save them: Adam. . .
For 400 Years He Was Lost To Her, But He Is Hers Tonight. . .
From their first tantalizing touch, Jasmine knows he is different. What other lover could unlock her tight control, flood vampire senses jaded by a lifetime of decadent self indulgence? Centuries ago, when he disappeared without a trace, she had given up hope of ever fulfilling the promise of incomparable passion. But here he is, against the very laws of nature, ready to bring down their most vicious enemy, ready to bring her blood to the boiling point. . .if she will only let him.


 Adam is a water demon with the handy ability to turn into mist and get carried through the wind. He lives in a world where demons and vampires are at war, it is his job to battle against the vampires. When Adam comes across a gypsy who is predicting the downfall of his brother, and asks him if he would do anything to save him he agrees without hesitation, this leads to him being transported hundreds of years into the future. What Adam didn’t know was that the gypsy was actually his future niece who travelled back in time to bring him to the future to save her father and family but this had consequences for Adam’s past, one being the vampire that tempted him back then;

"Sweet Destiny, he thought in stunned disbelief, I know she is a Vampire, and still she arouses me!

Now in the future the vampires and demons are no longer at war, so the possibility for them both to make something of their past forbidden feelings for each other isn’t such an impossibility. Now to get to the parts that just lost my interest, as I am not much of a historical romance fan, this book has a lot of back story set far back in time, which was a bit of a chore for me to read, though I understand that without those parts the book wouldn’t make very much sense and we wouldn’t know what was happening, but it just dragged on for so long. Unfortunately I couldn’t get into this book until halfway through, the style in which it was written didn’t appeal to me, though it wasn’t a bad read by any means and there were some parts that I enjoyed reading, it just overall wasn’t for me.
