"This series is filled with non-stop sexy sci-fi action!!!"
The Midnight Warrior series quite simply, ROCKS! And the
4th book in this series, Parallel Desire by Deidre Knight,
is no exception! I recommend reading this series in order
because Ms. Knight continues previous characters stories
with each book as she evolves other characters/aliens with
fascinating plots and intense action.
Parallel Desire pretty much picks up where Parallel
Seduction left off. Jacob [Jake] Tierny/Scott Dillon is an
Antousian/alien and from the future. He currently inhabits
the identity/body of Jake Tierny, the man responsible for
killing his wife and unborn child. Determined to get
answers and then kill the younger Tierny, Jake/Scott
chooses to strand himself back in time.
Leaving the Refarian base he once called home he continues
his search of the younger Jake Tierny in hopes of altering
this time line and securing the survival of his younger
wife that is now married to his younger self/Scott Dillon.
If that isn't enough to weigh a man down, the focus of his
mission becomes more and more jaded in a cloud of drunken
despair and memories he can't escape.
Jared the Refarian King wants Jake/Scott back on the base
as the war to protect Earth from the Antousians is heating
up. So Shelby Tyler, a Refarian medic, has been sent to
retrieve Jake and bring him back. However Shelby is more
than happy to take on this mission as she is highly
attracted to him. It doesn't take long for the sparks to
fly with sexy tension and excitement between the two.
Regardless of how simple the mission sounds, the past that
each of them drags behind them disrupts the easy return to
Ms. Knight once again, manages to take the plot of Parallel
Desire and amp it up with complexities not only occurring
in her primary characters but also in the secondary
supports characters. It made the book an amazing read with
all the twists, turns and oh yeah, scintillating romance.
Here's hoping Ms. Knight continues with this fantastic
series and the wonderful thought provoking plots she weaves.
