Description du produit

Présentation de l'éditeur

Beyond our world lies a land where darkness reigns--the land of the virile, sensual Shadowdwellers. Yet their mysterious abilities are no match for the power of desire. . .

Double Your Pleasure. . .

Discipline. Penance. Order. A Sanctuary priest's life revolves around such things. But when Sagan is taken captive and thrust into the Alaskan wilderness, he encounters a woman who challenges his faith and his self-control. Valera is a natural born witch who almost lost herself to the lure of dark magic. By rights, Sagan should shun her, but convention will count for nothing in the face of a passion that could change the world of the Shadowdwellers forever. . .

As Chancellor of the Shadowdwellers, Malaya's first duty is to her people. Her bodyguard, Guin, knows this only too well. For tradition's sake, Malaya must marry, and the thought of this lush, vibrant, woman in a loveless union is impossible for him to bear. Guin loves Malaya--not as a subject loves his queen but as a man craves a woman. And even if he cannot keep her, he'll show her everything she stands to lose. . .

Biographie de l'auteur

Hi there. It's me! Again. Time to update some more. Trying to keep up with this and realizing I haven't updated this since 2012. (It's 2015 right now) I've expanded my online presence to include Facebook and Twitter, a website a blog and every other bleeping thing there is out there in the cyber world. Was finding it hard to manage all that exposure and get work done at the same time. I am writing under two names (JAX is for my steamier stuff...and yes, it does get steamier!) And I am in over half a dozen languages now! INCUDING a full line of NIGHTWALKERS audio books with the glorious narration of the superb Xe Sands. I'm thrilled with the job she did!

NIGHTWALKER, the final book in the NIGHTWALKER series has just debuted and my fingers are crossed that it will do well.

I'm still living in Asheville, NC. My kitty family has dwindled to a mere eight cats. I was fostering and...I found it so hard to trust anyone would give them a better home than me! Is that ego or arrogance or just trust issues?

Email will always be welcomed. I am a tech queen and my laptop has grown roots into my thighs. (And my bottom has grown them into my recliner). I am so thrilled about all of my books and I want to know what everyone thinks of them! I think it would be fascinating to hear what my readers would like to see happen in the Nightwalker world as the series ends. I receive emails at jackifrankwrites@gmail.com these days. Feel free to say hi! 

If you haven't tried me, please do. I always recommend starting with JACOB. Or if you don't want to invest in a series, go for DRINK OF ME. It's a stand alone. 

Enjoy,
Hugs and Kitties,
Jacquelyn Frank

Sagan disparu au tome 2 rencontre Valera et en tombe follement amoureux. Le problème est qu'elle est humaine et utilise la magie ce qui devrait en faire son ennemie. Réputé pour sa maîtrise, sa discipline... elle est son péché.
Malaya, chancelleur des Shadowdwellers, doit se soumettre à son destin et se marier pour satisfaire le sénat qui fomente une rébellion. Mais si elle cède à leur volonté, elle doit accepter de perdre son fidèle garde du corps Guin, dont le comportement est de plus en plus étrange.
Deux livres en un, un peu étonnant tellement la première histoire est brève. On retrouve avec plaisir les personnages des autres tomes et Acadia se dévoile enfin.

4.0 étoiles sur 5 Hot stories under Alaska: amazing shadowdwellers 17 septembre 2012
Par tina - Publié sur Amazon.com

After reading RAPTURE, the previous book to this, I was like the tasmanian devil trying to download this quick enough so I could continue reading. RAPTURE might be the best of Frank. I have read much of her Nightwalkers series--jacob, gideon, noah, etc and her 3 worlds series.

The incredible thought that went into RAPTURE was good groundwork for the larger story of Malaya in this book. However, if you were looking with great interest to follow the warrior priest Sagan's story as I was, you will be left early on feeling "rushed" as another reviewer noted. I thought Sagan was to be every bit as lushly layered as Magnus' and Dae's story. As I flipped the electronic pages of the kindle cloud, I couldn't believe the lack of development of both of them and it was with no little disbelief that I kept looking at the last page of Sagan (less than a third of the way in)and the first page of Malaya and wondering what cliff I had fallen off of. Pleasantly, I have to say--Malaya's doesn't disappoint in character development, action, suspense and romance.

Sagan's story came across a very rushed, underdeveloped story that would have fit in one of those Xmas complilations that are so popular now with multiple authors novellas that seems designed to keep a series going when the author is really working on something else. Altho there is a micro-tie in of Sagan's story into Malaya, it seems that both works were a rush job and the author had lost interest in this series. Especially toward the end of Malaya. I got the feeling that Valera, Sagan's love interest was just inserted conveniently on one page in order to make an attempt at linking the two stories. I guessed that maybe the author just couldn't integrate the Sagan storyline into Malaya which I think she could have done but may have been rushed for time.

For you readers thinking about buying this book--do so. Its wonderful anyway. Just read Sagan's story as a kind of warm up band rather than a chapter in the series. Its not connected much at all but it has its perks and is pretty unexpected. You will fall in love with Malaya and Guin even if you haven't read about them in RAPTURE. Frank's command of erotic, passionate but soul-searing intensity is so beautifully written. While she didn't continue so much with the intellectual (and VERY prescient) dialoguing and monologuing of RAPTURE, I still found it very engrossing. When Frank is "on", she is Really ON and can make some very thoughtful observations about sexual relations, relationships, and politics. Yes, politics. She's a keen observer and it makes really good worldbuilding.
Get this book and read RAPTURE--before or after. Especially if you have an interest in the study and psychology of eroticism and its role in a relationship. Malaya's story takes place contemporaneously or just after rapture and has the same slamming intensity in the love scenes as rapture, but less philosophizing and internal dialogue.
Its been three years since she wrote this book, but I see nothing in her production pipeline that suggests she will continue w/ this line having finished the demon storyline and starting a new one. Which is a great pity. There is so much that could be explored among the shadowdwellers(Brenden, Killian, Tristan, Talon etc). She built such an incredible world with plausible technological workarounds.

Dear Reader: Read this book.

Note to Author:
Ms Frank, abandon the new storyline and the 3 worlds. This one was brilliant and you need to atone for dumping Sagan into a 1-dimensional story. Brendan...now THAT has potential. I really want to see how Dae interacts with Brendan after the horror that occurred in rapture. We want a HEA for him in a big way. Maybe Zenia? Just sayin.
That said, I'm back to my salmon like ways and off to read the first one in the series.

Jacquelyn Frank is easily one of my favorite authors of paranormal romance. At this point I've read everything she's had published to date and I've truly enjoyed all of her offerings so far.

For the most part, Pleasure was no exception. Each book in the Shadowdweller series, in addition to being a romance novel in every sense, clued the reader in to a certain aspect of Shadowdweller society; Ecstasy introduced us to their culture and their world, Rapture shared their religion and their spiritual beliefs, and now Pleasure worked to shed some light on the politics that governed this admittedly unstable world. Ms. Frank's writing is lyrical without being boring, poetic without being trite, and I found the conversations between the characters to easily be my favorite part of the whole story.

That doesn't mean that Pleasure is a perfect book, however. In both stories, there's a definite undercurrent of feeling insecure and inferior, of being unworthy, and of ignoring one's accomplishments in the face of imagined character flaws, and that meant that the train to Angstytown left on a fairly regular basis. Ultimately, those elements were used to make important things happen in the story, which is a definite good thing, because personally I can only read so much of that before I start to lose interest.

There also was, and you don't catch me saying this too often, perhaps a little too much bedroom action in this particular book. I don't have qualms about the quantity or frequency of sex scenes in books like some reviewers out there, but in this particular case I felt like sex scenes were what was going on while we were waiting for actual events that were important to the story line to get around to happening. This was more prevalent in Sagan's story than in Guin and Malaya's, but still.

In spite of all that, I read Pleasure in one sitting and wasn't sorry I'd spent the money to buy the book. I'd recommend this series to anyone who was looking to explore paranormal romance but wasn't sure where to start, and also to anyone who enjoys PNR but is kind of tired of the vampire/werewolf experience that's so popular right now.

As a side note, it bears mentioning that although there are two stories in this volume, this isn't a story anthology; rather, Pleasure reads more like a play, with Act I featuring Sagan and Act II featuring Guin and Malaya. The stories happen concurrently, but are not separate from each other.

If you're interested in reading Pleasure, I highly recommend starting with the beginning of the series, which starts in Ecstasy. I really don't think the series will make much sense or be much fun if you start with the third installment. The end of Pleasure made it seem like future installments were a possibility; I'd definitely read them if they did happen.

Her Nighwalkers series is her best. This being one of the last ones it is likeable and fun. Her characters are well developed and her Shadow world is being nicely shaped.

It is a shame she has now decided to revive her older work and tag it to the Nightwalkers, i.e., The Gatherers, and not the Body ... don't really belong to the same group, not at all; they are alltogether from another series entirely. It would be saying that everyone who has a night job belong to the same organization, not. The very idea is not even logical. The Shadowdwellers are at least one of the night races who all face some of the same problems, and can be easily grouped as one group.

Nothing wrong in re-publishing unknown work, but it is a marketing scam when tagging it to an already thriving series, i.e. The Nightwalkers.

I love the idea of the Shadowdwellers, and had wished for more, maybe the Tristan story, that would had been good. Magnus.

I knew I would like this book after reading a sample & I wasn't disappointed. I loved reading it & hated finishing it. It is my favourite Jacuelyn Frank book so far, despite the backstory of the Shadowdwellers appearing almost incidental to the relationship of the quality characters Magnus & Dae. Unlike in Noah, which I found lacking in resolution and even reference to the theme of the Nightdweller series, this was to the credit of this book in my view & I found myself caring less about the plight of the 'Dwellers in favour of wanting more of Magnus & Dae. I have to admit I skim over a lot of sex scenes in books these days, however I was engrossed (and a lot turned on!) by the intimacies between the pair. I'd love to see more kick ass female characters who talk like Dae & OMG, Magnus. Wow! If I ever had a guy speak to me like that to me while I'm naked, I swear I'd never get dressed again!

Once again, Jacquelyn Frank has delivered with yet another spellbinding book that is chock-full of detail, suspense, and satisfying love scenes. If you're looking for a great series that will make you re-think everything you thought you knew about the different species of life on planet Earth, then you definitely need to buy the Shadowdweller series!
