Overview

Fired from her job and exhausted from her miserable commute, the last thing Deana Jones needs when she gets home is to find an alien in her living room. But how else to explain the man who claims he is from beyond the stars? He says his name is Lorgin and that she is part of his celestial destiny. Deana thinks his reasoning is ridiculous, and she knows he's making an error of cosmic proportions. But his touch is electric, and Deana starts to wonder if maybe their passion isn't written in the stars?

This book made me a romance reader, before I would only read SF, horror,etc. 'Knight of a Trillion Stars was my very first romance book. The fantasy aspect of the story appealed to me at first. I was hooked by page ten. It was funny and very very sexy, without being vulgar. Both main characters are likeable, as is the supporting characters. My favorite is Tran. It is not overlong, and I read it in a few hours. I would recommend this book to everyone.

Way too easy to mock this is. This cheesy paranormal romance features an alien, a "Knight of the Charl" complete with light saber, who pops into the life of an aspiring science-fiction writer, Deana Jones. (Probably not a good sign when the book's protagonist has a name so reminiscent of the author.) So, tell me. You find a strange man in your house and you're alone. Do you: a) Scream and run out of the house to your car. b) Grab the phone and call the police. c) Check out how hot he is with his gold hair and lavender eyes, exchange (non)witty banter, and when he insists over your objections he's going with you on your vacation for your "protection" book him a seat on the plane then take him shopping for a new wardrobe--despite the fact you were just laid off and have no new job lined up. Guess which our heroine chooses? Given the title, that it was written a decade later, and the fish-out-of-water scenario I suspect this was a science-fiction riff off A Knight in Shining Armor, but it has none of the charm with which Deveraux invested her story and hero. Oh, and the controlling alpha-dick hero calls the heroine "Little Fire." For her red hair donchaknow. I lasted 44 pages. That's about an hour of my life I'm not getting back, and I resent every minute. A "matrix of destiny romance" so I suppose this is a series. *shudder*

Ahh, paranormal romance written before paranormal romance became insanely popular! Though I generally don't enjoy fantasy-type stories where all n'ames a're apos'trophi'ed, I got a kick out of this one. The descriptions of the imaginary terrains sometimes seemed rushed and not nearly fleshed-out enough, but the description of Lorgin's treetop home came alive in my mind.

This is one of those books I have reread until I ended up buying another copy!Lorgin is a Charl Knight trying to track down the source of some time stream troubles and ends up on Deanna's doorstep. She thinks he's just some wacko her friends sent as she is planning to go to a sci/fi convention. Lorgin won't let her out of his sight, so she drags the sexy alien along to the convention. Scenes from Lorgin at the convention are wet-your-pants hilarious and scenes from Lorgin and Deana making love are wet-your-pants hot! This book has humor, an interesting mystery, interesting (and way hot) characters and a good teaser for the next book in the series starring Lorgin's brother Rejar.

The idea was somewhat interesting, but it felt too "easy reader" in comparison to other novels. Too much needed to be explained, and the heroine was rather weak. But not a bad, simple romance.

This was SO PAINFUL. I could nearly feel my braincells committing suicide as I read it. This alien KIDNAPS this woman, marries her in a ceremony she DOESN'T undersand and then procedes to force himself on her, despite her repeated no's, which she comes to ENJOY!The ending was rushed and trite and it's got to be one of the worst reads I've had in a while.Gor for women. And without the laughable, dated sexism either.Not reading any more Dara Joy without severe recommendations from people. I am so glad that I bought this in a charity shop, that's the only mitigating factor with this.

I read this book many years ago and it was just as good now as it was then. Loved the humor, adventure and characters. I can definitely see myself reading this for a third time in the near future. I love the way Dara Joy writes.

I read quite a bit, and had read this book years ago. It was the first one I looked for after getting my nook and I think it is one of my favorite books of all time! Lorgin is a very endearing hero! I love that it has the settings of different worlds and species of aliens. I found it to be a great read the first time and I STILL do! I would highly recommend this book!
