KNIGHT OF A TRILLION STARS
Love Spell strikes gold with the discovery of the impressive talent of newcomer Dara Joy, who writes with a wit, warmth and intelligence that will have readers flocking to the cash registers.
All in all, it has been a terrible day for Deana Jones. Abruptly laid off from work, her journey back home is lightened only by the purchase of an intriguing necklace from a seedy junk store. Then, when she finally stumbles into her little cottage, she turns around to find a complete stranger seated on her couch.
And what a vision he is. Lorgin ta'al Krue is every woman's fantasy of a dream prince from another world. But what is he doing in her living room? Well, he's on a quest, and the preliminary object of his quest turns out to be Deana herself. Thus, with a swirl of his cape, he whisks her off to another dimension to begin a perilous journey to the far end of the universe to battle an evil that threatens their entire existence.
Although Ms. Joy tickles our funnybones with many a tongue-in-cheek moment, she takes special care to develop a full-bodied love story brimming with fiery sensuality and emotional intensity. And, as icing on the cake, she introduces several other secondary male characters readers will beg to see featured in their own books. Read and enjoy, enjoy and enjoy! (July, 400 pp., $499)
