    FANTASTIC READ OF NEW PARAMETERS!!!

    Parallel Desire: Trapped in the past wearing the body of the man who killed his wife and his unborn daughter in a future timeline, Scott Dillon is a tortured soul filled with self-loathing. Disgusted by the fact that he occupies the body of the man who will one day kill his wife and child, Scott now insists on being called by the future murderer's name, Jake Tierney. <BR/>Parallel Desire finds Scott Dillon a man truly at war with himself, a younger version of himself. Realizing that Hope Harper, the love of his life, is truly happy with the man he once was. Scott/Jake realizes he must find a new reason to go on living, in spite of the fact that he is still deeply in love with Hope. <BR/>He finds that quest with his goal to track down his wife's future killer, the real Jake Tierney. Scott hopes to use the fact that he now wears Jake's future body to infiltrate Jake's current life and somehow redirect the future so that Hope and her unborn child will be spared the horrific deaths they will suffer in the future. <BR/>Scott is overcome by grief and self hatred until medic Shelby Tyler steps in, refusing to let him wallow in his misery. As Scott and Shelby work to discover the mysteries surrounding the original Jake Tierney, they uncover grave dangers facing both Earth and the Rafarians. In the process of discovering the real Jake Tierney, Scott finds self forgiveness and new love with Shelby. <BR/>The fourth and final entry into the Midnight Warrior series, Deidre's emotional writing and captivating story lines keep the reader glued to the page. Her characters are masterfully flawed, and as they struggle against those flaws to find love in a world standing on the brink of Armageddon, the things that truly matter in life are once again reaffirmed. Next to my favorites writers; Sherrilyn Kenyon, Laurell K Hamilton and K S Michaels, Deidre Knight is up there with the best, 'unparalleled'.<BR/>Love will always find a way.

    Passionate paranormal romance amidst Armageddon: what defines identity?

    Diedre Knight's PARALLEL DESIRE takes the war and the characters to the brink of Armageddon. Both within the outer political world and the internal world of love, the dangers are great, the passions intense, and betrayal lurking. PARALLEL DESIRE follows the third book, PARALLEL SEDUCTION, and should be read within the context of that book and the whole series for its maximum reading pleasure. Scott Dillon, reeling from his actions at the end of the third book, now finds himself in a parallel world of the past, not with his wife but with Refarian medic Shelby Tyler. Living in Jacob Tierny's body yet hunting down the real Jacob Tierny in this past world, Scott Dillon is a stranger living in the wrong body, the wrong time and the wrong dimension. With a happy ending to his romance blown to pieces, he still has memories of his other life. How can he hope for love when grief and a passion for vengeance overwhelm his very soul? Obsessed with the desire to hunt down the man who killed his wife, Scott risks breaking the rules of the parallel dimension design to achieve his goal --- even if it means destroying the very fabric of the universe. Can Shelby's body and comfort heal his very soul? She cannot deny the passion that draws her to this tortured Antousian, but can she accept his past ---- and indeed her own ---- so that love can transform them both? While Shelby and Scott wrestle for the very survival of their souls, the war between the Antousians and the Refarians rages at its most deadly. The Antousians infiltrate the very power echelons of American government in a bid for their survival. As Kelsey prepares for the birth of her child and Jared's heir, her own physical safety is at risk, not only from the Antousians but also in the very nature of her child, a dual being fetus in her human body. In PARALLEL DESIRE, Deidre Knight reaches into the very heart of her universe and of love itself. In this dimension, the true nature of the characters emerges as they wage war to protect civilization from forces attempting to co-opt it for nefarious purposes. Even more, the characters battle passionately for love as their true natures are revealed in the most elemental forms --- both raw physicality and pure energy. Deidre Knight is absolutely brilliant. She takes the reader into a microcosm within an Armageddon, focusing on the specific internal battles and hot passion within two characters. At the same time, Deidre Knight takes the reader out to the larger universe and larger questions of identity, giving us a prism with which to view the entire series in a new light, yet one carefully built in the previous three books. A magnificent book and series!

    Parallel Desire: Amazing Read

    In Parallel Desire by Deidre Knight, we find time traveller Scott Dillon, has come to the past on a mission-find the man who killed his wife and child. Nothing matters but reaching his goal. His heart is filled with grief and revenge and the one thing he doesn't expect is is attraction to Refarian medic, Shelby Tyler. Shelby has demons of her own. Is her heart too broken to help Scott and can she accept there is more than a case of lust between her and Scott? Can each of these wounded souls find peace and love, or are they too battle scarred? Deidre Knight has penned an action packed, sensual story that will keep you reading late into the night. The chemistry between Shelby and Scott scorches the pages. The surprising plot and well crafted characters make this book a keeper for this reader's shelf. This is a great ending for the Midnight Warrior series. Tambra Kendall

    As a fan of all of Deidre Knight¿s Midnight Warriors, PARALLEL DESIRE captured my heart from page one and left me holding the book to my heart when I reached the end. **** Scott Dillon 'Jake Tierny' is a tormented soul who has traveled back in time with vengeance on his mind for the murder of his wife and child. When Medic, Shelby Tyler, tracks him down after he disappears, she knows she has a lot of man to handle, and she finds that man attractive and sensual, worth bringing around. But Jake battles himself and fights Shelby¿s attentions, while Shelby remembers a past betrayal that clouds her ability to love. **** During this time, the alien Antousian enemies are initiating a plan that must be stopped before it¿s too late for earth and the future of the Refarians, even King Jared and his family are at risk. Because of this, PARALLEL DESIRE has fast paced action that keeps the pages turning and the reader wondering how the book will end. Deidre Knight is a master storyteller and added twists that dropped my jaw and made me hunger for more of her writing. **** In PARALLEL DESIRE, the worst events that could happen do happen, and along with this are woven the themes of acceptance and letting go, family bonds, facing oneself, and love conquers all. **** A great read!

    In the future, during Armageddon, Scott Dillon desperately races to his battlefield tent to keep his beloved Hope and their future child Leisa safe. He is too late as the human stranger has killed his beloved wife and their unborn daughter. Outraged Scott uses his Antousian skills to take over the murderer¿s body. He tells his comrade Kelsey that Scott is dead and his new name is Jakob Tierney, a cold blooded killer with a past to erase.------------- In the present half-Antousian Scott Dillon is married to his beloved Hope. Jake has come to Scott¿s present where he must make a life for himself. Meanwhile Refarian medic Shelby Tyler knows that Jake is Scott and that Scott also exists. She wants to help Jake, but he is on a quest to destroy the stranger whose body he took over in the future before that evil human can kill his wife and unborn. However, if he succeeds the future time line will be altered and who knows what the butterfly effect of chaos will be. On top of that a deadly Antousian plot has been deployed that if successful could lead to Armageddon with Jake and Shelby as the prime players trying to prevent the disaster.--------------- The latest Midnight Warriors Parallel tale is incredible as the superb plot twists and sensational time paradoxes keep on coming. The Scott-Jake saga will hook readers who wonder what will happen next to the one man with two bodies (the ultimate in twins). Fans of this delightfully complex series (see PARALLEL ATTRACTION, PARALLEL HEAT and PARALLEL SEDUCTION) will relish PARALLEL DESIRE as we wonder whether Jake will suicide or learn the delights of Kama Sutra 411 with Shelby. That is if they survive the mission either way he chooses by going back he has already chaotically altered the future.------------------------ Harriet Klausner
