to be spicy,spikey,romantic & raunchy look no futher than
Her novella's for the Secrets books have garnered
multiple accolades, & with this her first full novel, her
talent for sexy, intelligent novel writing is sure to
impress. Linda Howard look to your laurels, there's an
equally good new kid on the block
However, Knight is one of the best by any standard. She creates strong characters you care about, gives reasonable (Time-Travel is always iffy logic to me! lol) explanations to her Time-Travel line, and takes something old and makes it new again. There will be instant references from readers of The Terminator giving Knight her seed for this story, (the writer even makes a couple herself!). So? They say there are only 7 basic storylines; it is what the writer does with them that showcases the talent. Knight took sexy John De Salvo, grafted him onto a genetically engineered body ala Arnie from T1, and gives you were sizzling kick a*** tale. Toss in a Time-Traveling Jack the Ripper and you have the makings of a very compelling story.
Jane Colby finds herself the target of old period-jumping Jack and the only thing standing between her and the killer are a generically altered, wisecracking timber wolf and one sexy warrior from the future. Knight blends all her elements so deftly. The scorching love scenes are nearly devastating, yet she manages to keep them from overpowering the whole book, by adding flawed, well-drawn characters with a rich history, a chilling stalk for a killer who is in turn stalking Jane, and the quirky humor of having a talking wolfhound that makes me think of the mouthy dog from the Men in Black Movies. The scenes with the wolf an absolute how, punch up the intensity level of the sexy love scenes and the brutal slayings, but giving the reader that much needed (pant pant) time to catch their breath!
This may be Knight's first trade paperback big book, but she sounds the trumpet - she is a force to be reckoned with sexy, futuristic/paranormal tales that take the reader to the limit and beyond! If you want your romances on par with "a kiss on the cheek Regency level" then give this book a pass for it will curl your toes. Knight's book is a "if you cannot stand the heat then get out of the kitchen" sort of tale. For those wanting a novel that delivers on all levels, then take the walk into the fire! Just be sure to have a tall picture of iced-lemonade handy!
I cannot wait for her October release!
I have just finished reading it and I loved it. Not only does it have some very erotic sex scenes it also has a gripping storyline.This is the first book I have read by this author and I intend to read more. I dont quite know what to do with myself now I've finished it..... perhaps I'll read it again!
WOW!! I now ADORE Angela Knight! At first glance people may think this sounds like a weird Terminator rip-off, but in fact it is totally and utterly different. I've never totally understood the concept of Time Travel, but Knight actually made the whole thing seem plausable and easy to comprehend. There weren't pages of technical jargon, but enough to make the story realistic and fit the concept of beings from 300years in the future, on a planet 8 light-years that way, travelling to earth on a mission to protect!
Baran may be a genetically engineered warrior with a computer chip and sensors dotted about his body, but he's still a vulnerable, protective man with emotions, personality and desire! Jane, a lonely reporter, provided a great, relatable heroine who wasn't weak or 'in distress' despite being stalked by a blood-thirsty, time-jumping Jack the Ripper named Druas (who gave me serious chills throughout!). Not forgetting or course Freika, who was also fantastic as Baran's witty wolf sidekick and provided much of the hilarious one-liners.
The story flowed beautifully and never felt stilted or rushed, while the physical relationship between the two leads was...well...i don't think a word exists to describe the amazingly erotic detail Knight goes into, with each encounter more sizzling than before!
If you like your romance burning HOT and your hero hotter, with an independant heroine and a dash of fantasy, then you will adore this book as much as i did! Can't wait to read more from this fantastic author!
Now when's my big Warlord protector gonna blast in....
