This is the 9th book in the 'Warlord' series by Angela Knight and the story of Jessica and Galar. This is also the first book I've read by Angela Knight, and now I want all of them. LOL
Jessica Kelly is your average Southern Belle. She is mild mannered and full of life, despite having known a rocky childhood. Jessica is an avid painter and finds beauty in all things.
Galar Arvid is a genectically altered Warlord from the 23rd century. He is an Enforcer in the Temporal Enforcement Agency and it is his job to police illegal Jumps through time. Jumps where people are killed or maimed for a profit in the future.
Galar is sent back in time to Atlanta, 2008 to find out if the murder of artist Jessica Kelly was committed by a Jumper in the hopes of raising the prices of her paintings in the future. Unable to change history, Galar must determine if Jessica's death was the result of a Jumper or just a random act of violence. If the killer is a Jumper, Galar can intervene, if not - Jessica must die.
What Galar finds is that Jessica, without her knowledge, has been thrust into a world of aliens - right in the middle of a fight for the right to live.
This book is unlike any I've read before, the concept is fresh and mixes romance and fantasy into a heady cocktail (no pun intended, well okay - yeah, pun intended). It is full of sex - so be warned. :)
I can't wait to get my hands on the rest of Ms. Knight's books.
I give this book a 5 out of 5.
