Book Description

4 April 2006 Signet Eclipse (Book 1)
Enter New York Times bestselling author Deidre Knight's time-bending universe of warring worlds, intimate betrayals, and unspent desire with the first installment of her Parallel series. “…humorous…heart-wrenching…compelling.… What a page-turner!” – Gena Showalter, author of The Darkest Craving. An unexpectedly sensual connection… Finding a mate is the farthest thing from alien warrior Jared Bennett’s mind. After years of exile on Earth, the king is close to developing a weapon that will alter the fabric of time and hopefully bring peace to his own people. But a chance encounter with scientist Kelsey Wells ignites a scorching desire far more consuming than talks of rebellion. To Kelsey, Jared’s heritage is exotic and alarming – nothing like the logical, scientific facts of her own world. But despite her fears, she can’t deny the heated response of her body every time the magnetic leader comes near. A dangerous allure… As the bond between them grows, Jared struggles with a shocking family secret that keeps him from claiming Kelsey as his own. And a visitor from the future escalates Jared's battle for his people's freedom to a fever pitch, forcing the lovers to face one inescapable fact: Time can save them, as much as it can destroy them.

5.0 out of 5 stars Phenomenally Brilliant Sci-Fi Romance 25 Oct 2006
Format:Mass Market Paperback
For a science fiction romance set on Earth, I was increasingly impressed with how imaginative and engaging the storyline is. Many have wondered are aliens amongst us even now as we drive to work, shop or play in the park. In Ms. Knight's brilliantly penned debut novel, it's an all out alien war that threatens to engulf not only the two opposing cultures involved, but the unsuspecting residents of oblivious Earth too.

Jared Bennet is a king in exile, strategically removed from the frontlines of his people's war against a conquering race. With the development of a powerful weapon though, the war is coming ever closer to him and an intriguing human woman he cannot let go of. Kelsey Wells has seen first hand the alien "otherness" that is Jared. It's clear the handsome alien needs something from her, but seductive kisses and heated exchanges soon cloud not only Jared's mission, but Kelsey's heart as well. Just as their relationship begins to take shape, Kelsey will undergo a terrifying journey at the hands of a traitor. The only question is will hers and Jared's love be given a second chance--or will all that Jared's people have fought for be lost? Maybe more importantly, can they have both at once?

This is a detail packed roller coaster of a romance, and it doesn't slow down from the moment it starts. Torn between duty and the chance at love, Jared is portrayed as a king without country, humble and achingly sexy in his attraction to Kelsey. Both have been searching for something, someone, their whole lives and when they meet it's a classic "meant to be" feeling. Their relationship is beautifully drawn out and wonderful to read. In addition, Ms.

5.0 out of 5 stars Phenomenal New World - Riveting 5 April 2006
Format:Mass Market Paperback
Without a doubt this is a compelling and absolutely phenomenal read! Knight's opening foray into the paranormal world is both intensely erotic, passionate, and riveting, introducing a new race of aliens determined not to invade but to protect earth and it's human inhabitants.
The leader of the aliens is the exiled king of the rebel Refarians - Jared Bennett who has unselfishly given almost everything in the fight for freedom from the vicious enemy. He had visited earth once before but the events of that visit had been wiped from his mind. Many years later the war has escalated and he holds the one weapon that can turn the tide for his people. Under attack his ship was forced down and he was gravely wounded when a young human woman geologist came upon him in his natural state. Kelsey Wells should have been frightened but instead was mesmerized and completely overwhelmed by the beauty of the being and of the man. Kelsey was fiercely attracted to him intuitively knowing that he would never harm her and his kiss, his very essence seemed to scream to her of 'knowing'. As Jared began to feel a very powerful attraction for Kelsey to make her his lifemate, he tried his best to fight it knowing how dangerous it would be for Kelsey to be around him. Before they could embark on a life together the secrets of time that were locked in Kelsey's mind would have to be released and a traitor would be the one to make the ultimate sacrifice in granting them a future.
*** Fast paced and full of creativity, this author has created a wonderful new world. I was instantly caught up in the heart wrenching betrayal of a precious love that was taken from two innocent young people.

5.0 out of 5 stars recommended Sci-Fi Romance 28 Aug 2006
By Deborah MacGillivray HALL OF FAME VINE VOICE
Format:Mass Market Paperback
In 2004, Deidre Knight the Knight Literary Agency turned down my novel, which later sold to Dorchester books. Sometimes an agent turns a writer down and you have no idea why. It can be many reasons aside for just not good; books are too similar to a writers she already has, she thinks it's too tough to try and market, or just the market is saturated or not buying that genre. The writer cannot get a read between the lines as to why something was rejected. Knight rejected me with a very nice note telling me she really got my story, loved my heroine, but I was too close to three authors her had under contract already and her first commitment was to them. I understood that. I moved on, landed with the agent I wanted. NOT that you as readers are interested in all that, but often I get accused of doing reviews for fellow authors or even being paid. I am not paid. I was a reviewer and reader long before I was an author and I NEVER say one thing about a book I don't feel is 100% true. We may not agree. That is life. However, I don't want that same thing being said about my review for Ms. Knight's novel. She turned down representing me, so I have no reason to write this review, except I enjoyed her novel.

That said, Ms. Knight has created a completing story. It's not easy to step into the Sci-Fi Romance market and deliver something that hasn't been done twenty times in 1950s B Movies. Yet, Knight delivers in her first book, the start of a series, a very imaginative tale of aliens and their struggle to survive. Instead of an alien race wanting to come with their ray guns and take over the Earth, you have one determined to protect it.

Jared Bennett, exiled king, has spent his life in fighting an enemy. He's been to earth before, but has lost memory of that.
