"Kristen, an empath, feels his emotions before they met... will he kill her or love her?"

Rider Savage was sent from five hundred years in the future to what is now the present to kill Kristen Skipworth, mother of all Deviants. This subspecies of human beings can enter your mind at will and destroy your memories. A deviant killed his wife and he volunteered to undergo the dehumanizing program that would make him an efficient killing machine.

Kristen, a maternal empath, feels his emotions before she met the sick man who was on the verge of death. When she finally meets him, she takes him to the clinic where she works as a physician to fix up his injuries. When he regains consciousness and learns who she is, he knows he should kill her but something is holding him back. When she learns who he is and where he came from she thinks he is crazy until somebody tries to kill her using a blaster and gadgetry not invented yet. She finally believes him. However, knowing the truth does not prevent her from loving him and Rider reciprocates the feelings even though he was programmed to kill her.

TIME RIDER is a fantastic work of romantic suspense that would make an action-packed movie along the lines of 'The Terminator.' Rickey R. Mallory is brilliant at creating characters whom readers will adore while showing expertise at creating a fast paced sub-plot that will keep readers turning the pages until the book is finished. TIME RIDER deserves to go on the 'keeper shelf' because decades from now it will be considered a classic.

n a future run by a corrupt government, skipworths, a group of human beings with telepathic ability, are considered demons worthy of annihilation. One man has been sent back to the present day to eliminate the person responsible for the birth of the skipworths. Dr. Kristen Skipworth is not the monster Rider Savage expects, however. She is merely a young physican whose an empathic ability makes her a good doctor. She can see through Rider's TAINCC conditioning to the man beneath.
