"Knight turns up the heat in Parallel Heat"

Deidre Knight delivers her second tale in the Parallel series and it totally dazzles. Many of the first book tics of Parallel Attraction are gone in this her second novel. The flow is better. Questions are answered. Parallel Attraction wasn't an "easy read". Complicated premises never are, so it's hard for some "skim" reading to get into a detailed book. Now that "Attraction" has set the foundation, Knight is able to fly with the storyline carried over into "Heat".

We pick up where Attraction left off, Jared Bennett, the exiled king of the Refarians has settled his people in the wilds of Wyoming. He now has a queen, Kelsey, his love from the first book. Only Thea Haven isn't too thrilled Jared has a wife. She and Jared were promised to each other when they were but children, so she grew to womanhood thinking she'd one day be Jared's queen. Now another has taken her place.

Soon her life is complicated even more by the appearance of Marco McKinley. A stranger, a warrior, Marco is a member of a royal guard and sworn to protect Jared, Kelsey and Thea, while helping Jared regain his kingdom. Thea and Marco are soon shooting sparks off each other, but both feel they don't have the time for love while they are preparing for war on earth. Worse, Marco has been cautioned that his love for Thea could see him betray Jared. If this isn't trouble enough, a member of the Rafarians is caught by the US Air Force who believes the Rafarians are plotting to do bad deeds against Earth.

Again the novel is complex, compelling with a strong hero and heroine to match him. It's fast paced, with enough twists and turns to keep the reader turning pages. Many that were left with questions from the first novel will find these addressed in this book. So buckle up and enjoy another installment in Knight's Parallel world, which leaves you eager for Parallel Seduction in 2007.
