New York Times bestselling author Deidre Knight is proud to answer to the titles of literary agent, mom, wife, southern woman, and novelist. She founded The Knight Agency in 1996, and has grown it to national prominence, shepherding clients onto every major bestseller list.

Deidre began her writing career at age nine, when her award-winning essay on Barbie was published in her hometown newspaper, the Atlanta Journal-Constitution, and she has been writing in one form or another ever since. Her dream of writing romance came true in the form of her debut series The Midnight Warriors, which launched with PARALLEL ATTRACTION in 2006.

PARALLEL ATTRACTION received the PEARL Award for Best Time Travel and was a PRISM finalist. Deidre's acclaimed contemporary romance, BUTTERFLY TATTOO, has been labeled "a rare and different gem," and praised by Publishers Weekly as a "weepy and affecting" read, while her paranormal romance series featuring immortal Spartan warriors, Gods of Midnight, was lauded as "powerful, sensual and mind-blowing."

Trapped in dagger form, and swept out to sea after being cast into the water by an enemy during battle, weapons-shifter River Kassandros' life force is fading away. River has lost all hope of being found by his Spartan brothers, soon all that will be left of him will be an inanimate dagger. Praying for deliverance from a different kind of trap, Emma opens up to her psychic hearing ability to the higher power and instead of hearing a promise of aid, Emma hears a desperate voice needing her help to save him. Screwing up her courage, Emma faces her fear of drowning determined not to damn the owner of the mysterious voice to that dreaded fate. Emma is shocked to find that she is savior to a dagger and Emma even more surprised when her blood transforms the beautiful weapon into a gorgeous dangerous nearly naked man.

River, who started life as a slave, has great potential as a tragic leading man. But in focusing on River's struggle with his inner berserker instead of River's pain and feelings of unworthiness from being a lesser brethren - he's been cemented into the servant roll for eternity shifting in battle to a sword or dagger to be wielded by his 'master' the Spartan cadre's captain Ajax - Knight doesn't wring out all the poignant potential from River's story. The beserker thing does add to River's troubles - on returning to human form River is in thrall of emotions of violence or lust - but the isolation and feelings of unworthiness of eternal servanthood had a stronger sympathy factor. Knight does use River's berserker issues to stave off the consummation for River and Emma but doesn't really build the relationship between the pair. River falls immediately for Emma - which makes it feel like any woman would have done - Emma decides she's in love with River almost as quickly.

Format: Mass Market Paperback
River Kassandros, a slave in Spartan times, serves his masters out of love and integrity. Because he does so with a noble attitude, he is considered to be one of the seven bravest warriors who will sadly lose the famous Battle of Thermopylae against the infamously powerful Persians. Approaching the River Styx, the seven warriors are offered an opportunity for immortality, but there are consequences whose terror and power is unforeseen by all who unwittingly take the vow to serve Ares, the God of War.

Unknown by the one who grants this immortality and unknown by the Djinn who seek to destroy the warriors, and indeed all who possess similar personalities, these Greek bonded brothers possess magical powers that are enhanced when the long-lost Oracle makes them aware of their "real" power. But before any of this can happen, many internal and external battles must be fought, i.e. water demons, silver shadows, and so much more.

River Kassandros first meets Emily, a woman who has magical powers to hear nearby spirits. She is able to free River from his "blade" appearance but must find a way to deal with his super-energetic bouts that erupt as either severe violence or ravaging lust beyond what any human being can endure.

The other warriors meet with humans and spirit-like forms and each has his or her immortal foibles to conquer before they are finally reunited and able to complete their real mission, to destroy the one to whom they have promised servitude in order to keep their immortal status.

Red Kiss is a lusty, adventurous, frightening but exciting story that will thrill every reader fascinated by Greek mythology, the paranormal and contemporary, romping and riveting stories about robust sex.

Interesting contemporary treatment of classic Greek mythology!

....out pops this lovely gem of a story. Created in a richly textured world--both with real and super-real people and creatures. This story takes us down new roads. The Olympic Gods are around and a pretty delectible version of Ares is created. The use of a dagger, causing a bloody prick that leads to essential telepahty is fresh and not at all in the vampire style. Especially I enjoyed how the couples were balanced more like a team without one beng so much stronger--metaphysically or physically--than the other. Great new series and this author as always a dependable auto-buy.

After following Deidre Knight's Parallel series, which is awesome, her books are a definite pre-order and must-read for me. "Red Kiss", book 2 of her Spartan series has everything I love in a good book - great characters, engrossing plot, humor, emotion, romance, passion, and good sex. The Spartan series' cast of characters is varied and fascinating, and Knight does a great job of setting up future possible pairings and conflicts, and makes you wish she would write MUCH faster. I can't wait for book 3!!

Format: Mass Market Paperback
After reading Red Fire I was absolutely hooked on Deidre Knight's Gods of Midnight series. The world she has created with the sexy and intriguing Immortal Spartans, Gods, Demons, and Demon Hunters captured my attention immediately. I couldn't wait for Red Kiss to become available. I had it pre-ordered and when it came, I couldn't put it down! River's story was absolutely captivating, and the challenges he and Emma face together keep you on the edge of your seat in action and romance! In the midst of it all she gives us sneek peeks into the hearts and minds of other interesting characters of the story, and makes us desperate to read her future novels so we can see how their lives will play out. Deidre is an amazing author. Read the books, you will be so glad you did!
