Finding a mate is the farthest thing from alien warrior Jared Bennett's mind. After years of exile on Earth, the king is close to developing a weapon that will alter the fabric of time and hopefully bring peace to his own people. But a chance encounter with scientist Kelsey Wells ignites a scorching desire far more consuming than talks of rebellion. To Kelsey, Jared's heritage is exotic and alarming - nothing like the logical, scientific facts of her own world. But despite her fears, she can't deny the heated response of her body every time the magnetic leader comes near.
As the bond between them grows, Jared struggles with a shocking family secret that keeps him from claiming Kelsey as his own. And a visitor from the future escalates Jared's battle for his people's freedom to a fever pitch, forcing the lovers to face one inescapable fact: Time can save them, as much as it can destroy them….

It’s a story about two people finding their “life mates.” The story was too mild for my taste. It worked ok in all the important ways, but it was simply ho-hum. I didn’t find it quite boring just inadequately engaging. Still, I liked that the romance unfolded in a realistic, not-too-fast & not-too-slow way. And Jared, the H, a shapeshifting king of an alien planet, and Kelsey, the h, a geologist and earthling, were likeable characters. I liked that Kelsey was described as a tall and not slight woman, about 6’, though she was still described has having delicate hands and feet. Jared was 6’4”, so it worked. The sex was nowhere near explicit and sort of overly dramatized romantic. But the story worked overall. It was more about expressing love and connection, which is not a bad thing. I think there were about 2 sex scenes in the book. So sex was nowhere near the focus of the book, though the romance still was. I also liked the secondary characters and believe I would enjoy their stories in future book, though I won’t be rushing to purchase any. Though the story was about aliens and alien warfare, the focus was not on alien technology. Still some, like time travel, is used. There’s no attempt to explain how it works nor is there a focus on it, but it’s there. There’s a bit more focus on the abilities of the aliens, and there are “alien” names, though all they take a back seat to the romance and war action that is generalized. There’s not a lot that makes these actions any different than it would be in a non-alien story. This is not necessarily a bad thing to me but might be for some expecting something else. Ho-hum.
Hot romance/Sci Fi we're so lucky to have Audible to feed our book addictions. I love walking my precious dog Sydney & listening to my books
Wow, this new would is out-standing and so intriguing... I couldn't stop listening and with Joel Richards narration - well he just opened the entire book right up... Kesley is a alpha type character but she would have to be to match up with alien king Jared. Their first meeting is so sweet when they are younger but one of Jared's people steals it away from them. So when time and space brings them back together this time older they now have a better chance but it would seem that love had it's way and they were not to be kept apart after all...
Deidre Knight takes you along on a drama filled adventure where love heats up between the two that where they are from is not a barrier. She accepts him for who he is and he loves her even more for that. That is the great thing about love is sees to the core of things. Interesting happenings go on danger and intrigue filled that has you on the edge sometimes gripping the novel. Rivalry also a factor in here because she is not the only one who loves him and she finds she is also loved by another. Not a hum drum read for sure and that is the joy of this one. You keep going along in this though regardless of what is happening only wanting one thing for sure ~~ that love is the winning factor here and that they will beat all odds and be together for their lifetime.. This is a excellent beginning to a wonderful series and after this book you just have to know what happens next... I'm rushing of to download the next book "Parallel Heat"... :)
Definitely. Very well written and the narrator, Joel Richards did a marvellous performance of all the characters.
There were many wonderful moments. When she was abducted and Jared Bennett went all out to save her and when he almost died she was willing to die with him. That moment was so.... touching indeed. So much love!!
He narrated brilliantly. Kept me glued to my iPad until the end.
Their love for each other was so beautiful.
I'll definitely be collecting this series.
