Jacquelyn Janelle has spent the majority of her life attached to machines and unable to communicate with her family and friends. Several years ago, she discovered that she could travel away from her body. One of her first trips took to her Earth and she met the man that Jacquelyn knew was to be her one and only. That same night Jacquelyn learned later, that man was changed into a vampire against his will. Many, many years later, she is surprised to find out that not only has he appeared on her planet but that he is now a villain with some sort of vendetta against her family.
Stegian might be a vampire but before he along with all the other paranormal beings were forced to leave Earth, Stegian was a very civil and fair-minded man who worked hard to have the humans and paranormals to live together. But something drastic happened when he and his shuttle landed on this new planet. His demon shoved the man well into the background and now Stegian is known for his horrible acts. Fear and death is how he rules and keeps those who follow his orders in line. Just imagine his surprise when a beautiful woman shows up and says that she knows the man he is and will help him defeat the demon once and for all.
Jacquelyn knows that she can help Stegian and also knows that the feud between him and her family is fierce and could divide Jacquelyn from her family forever. When Jacquelyn is around Stegian becomes the man he once was so long ago, however the demon isn’t about to give up without a fight. Jacquelyn believes that her love and understanding will help Stegian once again become the man that she once met. Secrets are coming out for both Jacquelyn and Stegian and so is a passion that could either bring them together or be the very thing to tear them apart. When the final push happens will Jacquelyn’s love be enough for Stegian to defeat the demon within?
Galaxies far apart are not enough to keep two hearts apart when love is the joining factor. Jacquelyn and Stegian find a way to gather and keep that love in Civil Twilight. Throughout this entire series I have watched while Jacquelyn’s family live and found love while she was comatose and hooked up to machines and alone. I loved that finally Jacquelyn not only found and fought for her love but I discovered that she was always active even if her body wasn’t. I have to admit that I thought that Stegian was a lost cause, yet when he was faced with Jacquelyn’s fierce determination it was the man who responded and loved. The final battle leaves me wondering if we have heard the last of a certain entity or not. I loved seeing both Stegian and Jacquelyn healthy, happy and passionate about their future. Civil Twilight is the end of a long journey where happiness and love proves they can defeat the worse types of evil. Civil Twilight is a wonderful addition to the Project Exorcism series.
