Baran Arvid is a genetically enhanced super soldier sent 300 years into the past to protect Jane Colby. Druas, a sadistic psychopath, has been jumping back in time ruthlessly slaying humans. Jane is his next intended victim.
Angela Knight does a good job building Baran's futuristic world. I found the details and descriptions of the futuristic toys, such as the jumpsuit that catapults them into the past, very interesting. I also enjoyed Baran's partner Freika, a genetically engineered timber wolf with a vocalizer. He added a bit of humor the story that was needed as a way to balance out the grimness of the murders. Baran is my kind of hero; strong, sexy, very dominant and protective without being a jerk. Jane is a good match for Baran. She is smart, brave and trusting. Thankfully, she never compromises Baran during his mission.
My one gripe with the story was (and I don't know if I am getting squeamish in my old age or what) the suspense part of the book seemed particularly gruesome. It is hard for me to jump from one scene of horrific torture, to a make-out session in the bedroom. I can only suspend my disbelief to a certain extent. Also, there was a conflict with Jane's father I would have liked to have seen resolved in more detail. Even so, this was a well conceived story and I was sorry to see it end. I actually would have liked for it to have been longer and seen more of Baran's futuristic world.

Good, although not quite as good as I was expecting. There's something a little unpolished or blunt about the writing style which kept me from becoming emotionally attached to the characters for the first part of the book. I wonder if it's just that this is the author's first book... Still very worth reading if you like the genre, and I'm interested in reading more by this author!
A really good story, but lacking something. Way too much use of the words "cream" and "creamy."
This was my first Angela Knight book. I loved it. At the time, it was the first of its kind that I'd read. I highly recommend it. Its a keeper for me. I can't give it up.
Paranormal romance. Baran Arvid comes from 300 yrs in the future to protect and save Jane Colby from a time jumping serial killer. Jane is reluctant to trust this Warlord from the future since he intends on using HER as bait. I really thought I would like this but its just one big sex scene with a rushed, crappy ending.
