Baran Arvid is a Viking Class Warlord from the future. Heís been recruited by Temporal Enforcement to attempt to save a 21st century woman, Jane Colby from Kalig Duras. He is a madman and killer who is hopping back and forth through time killing woman in the style of serial killer Jack the Ripper. Baran is more then happy to end his killing spree and will do everything necessary to keep Jane safe, whether she likes it or not.

Jane Colby is a reporter and the publisher of the Tayanita Tribune, since her fatherís death. When a vicious murder occurs in her town, she has no idea that she and the victim have something in common; they were both targets of the same killer. The only difference was this woman didnít have her own personal bodyguard. Well, neither did Jane, at least not yet. When she returns home to find a strange man and his dog in her house, she is unprepared for the revelations to come. Itís not everyday that a girl gets her own personal warlord as a bodyguard.

Baran is totally hot. That man makes the Terminator look like a wind up toy. Sexy, dominating and at the same time down right maddening, he makes it his mission to stay as close to Jane as possible, and honey, do they get close. I fell in love with him from the first meeting and would like to know where I can get my own. Donít think for one minute that Jane is a doormat, because she isnít. She more than holds her own with this sexy, alpha male from the future. Jane is a strong, intelligent woman who takes an active roll in her own protection. She isnít content to stand back and let someone rescue her, and doesnít hesitate to let Baran know it. The attraction between these two is explosive and immediate. The sex burns up the pages and the growing love and affection is apparent, even if Baran does fight it every step of the way.

With the help of Freika, a genetically engineered timber wolf, Baran and Jane race against time to stop a madman, keep her safe and maybe find a love that will transcend all time and space.

I have read this funny, sexy and erotic tale 4 times, falling more and more in love with the characters and Ms. Knights storytelling. I am patiently, well not too patiently, waiting for Ms. Knights next book. Run, donít walk to your nearest bookstore to get your copy of this book and make sure to have a pitcher of ice water and your own personal warlord handy.
