Editorial Reviews

From Booklist

Reporter Jane Colby is shocked by a gruesome murder in her small southern town, but she is even more stunned to learn that the murderer isn't from this century and that she is his main target. Her only chance at surviving is fighting fire with fire, or, in this case, future with future, as embodied in Baran Arvid, a twenty-fourth-century warrior. Baran's orders are to keep her from dying, and Jane's mission is to stop the murderer before he kills again. As the tension mounts and their trust grows, both realize they're also trying not to lose their hearts. Knight keeps her writing feet firmly on the ground in her debut novel. Though a few plot points need strengthening--it would be good to see Baran pursue the killer more actively--and the coarse language used during lovemaking may not be to some readers' liking, her world is believable and her plotting fast paced. Knight's fictional world seems to have a promising future. Nina Davis

More About the Author

I've been writing erotic romance since 1996, when my first novella appeared in Secrets Vol. 2. In June, 2004, Jane's Warlord, my first novel, was published, followed by FOREVER KISS in July, 2004 the antho HOT BLOODED in September, and MASTER OF THE NIGHT in October. MASTER OF THE MOON, my next book, hit the USA Today list for three weeks, much to my amazement. Since then I've been writing like a lunatic and having a wonderful time.

I've been married to a wonderful man for more than twenty years now. He's a senior investigator with our county sheriff's office. As a result, I know an awful lot of cops, which is one reason I love putting police procedural elements in my fiction. I also spent ten years as a reporter, which gave me a collection of war stories you would not believe.

My husband Mike and I have one son, Anthony, who is in his twenties now.

Format: Mass Market Paperback Verified Purchase
Barak Arvid, a twenty-fourth century warlord, is given urgent instructions by the Temporal Enforcement agency to travel back in time 300 years, to 2004. His mission is to protect reporter Jane Colby from certain death at the hands of the time-traveling Jumpkiller, Kalag Druss. Barak is a genetically engineered human, whose body is five times stronger than 21st century humans, and whose bones are so dense they are practically unbreakable. He has a "neuroweb combat computer woven through his brain, giving him access to a vast data bank and information from sensor implants scattered throughout his body." In other words - he's brilliant, an honest-to-God know-it-all! He is also a super sensual hunk - six feet five, long dark hair, chiseled features, and a sex drive that doesn't stop.

Ms. Colby, the owner of a local newspaper and a crime reporter, is pretty attractive herself - and feisty, independent and intelligent. What else? She's our heroine. Jane covers a brutal murder close to her home, where the victim, a young woman, literally looks as if Jack the Ripper had spent some time with her. Shaken, Jane returns to her house and finds Barak and his sidekick Frieka, a genetically engineered talking wolf and warrior. Needless to say, Jane, after she gets over her initial terror at finding superman and mouthy canine making themselves at home in her domain, thinks she has lost her mind. She is finally convinced that Barak is there to protect her, and will not leave her side, accompanying her to bed and bath, untill the killing machine has been taken out of commission.

Not unbelievably the two get it on in some of the steamiest scenes I have read, and then fall in love.

JANE'S WARLORD is Angela Knight's first full-length work by Berkley and if this is anything to compare future titles to, we are all in for a treat! Let me start off by saying this is one hot novel, so if you get easily offended this may not be the book for you. Ok now that we have that out of the way I can tell you I loved this book.
I am sure that other reviewers have told the storyline so I will just hit the basics. Jane lives in South Carolina and is the owner/reporter/photographer for a small hometown newspaper publication. Baran is a Warlord 300 years from the future sent to protect her from a JumpKiller (Serial Killer), also from the future. The bad guy in this book is scary, he likes to play with his victims before he slices and dices them, then takes a turn having his fun with them. He has time jumped and commited murders all through time.
The things I loved about this book are many. Jane is a strong female, she is not just waiting for the big strong man to come save her. She does her own share of saving also. She doesn't have any of the hang-ups that we see in a lot of romance novels. Baran, now here is a hero! Besides looks, and I could talk about that all day, he is so alpha. The part that sets him apart and made me fall in love with him was his soft side. He tries so hard to always be tough and in control, but he cares about the people he is trying to help, even people he is just meeting. I won't give away the plot, but there is a scene where he comes upon a wreak and it really upsets him that he knows the lady inside the car is going to die before they can get her cut out. He gets her out even though he gets hurt in the process. He has a tender heart and Jane can see through his tough guy act.

This book was such a good book that I had to read it 3 times before I could put it down.
The hero is a generically enhanced hero from the future designed for battle called a WARLORD! The heroine is a sassy Southern reporter called Jane! The hero's sidekick and comic relief of the book (with the perfect timing and sarcastic wit of FRAZIER!) is a genetically enhanced timber wolf called Freika who has a fetish for cats! LOL!
Baran the Warlord is sent back to the past (our present) but the Time Police! to save Jane from an assassin from the future (known as "Jack the Ripper"...warning some scenes are very bloody! but not too many!)
Baran is literally a human tank....Strong as 5 normal man with the genetic ability to wage war and the protective instincts of an Alpha male. He is true hero material as he fights "Jack"! And can he think of some kinky sex scenes! <Sigh> He sure gives Jane a run for her money, being of the he-man protector sort, but she gives back as good as she gets!
The action scenes are wonderful! The love scenes are hot! And the future is bright according to this book! I love it! I hope she writes more from the storyline!
I was a previous fan of this author from her SECRETS stories (her vamps are to die for!) and her Ellora's Cave stories (CAPTIVE DREAMS etc.), but this book in my opinion takes her to superstar level..... Make room for Angela Knight because here she comes!

I'm not a into-the-future kinda person, never read any books on the subject either. But this book kept me up all night, I couldn't put it down. Jane and Baran were definitely getting their freak on in more ways then one. I think the eroticism between the two characters, along with the suspense, made the book a very enjoyable read. I just wish the story was longer, but either way, this book is a keeper.
Freika, the wolf, had me laughing my head off. I can't wait for Ms. Knight's next book to be released.
