Currently Reading - Parallel Attraction (Midnight Warriors, Book 1) by Deidre Knight
From a "fantastic and riveting new voice in paranormal fiction"* comes a thrilling debut novel of danger and passion, and a love that will cross all boundaries of time and space.
It has been years since exiled alien king Jared Bennett thought of anything other than his people's fight for freedom. Now his rebel force has the one weapon that can turn the tide against their enemy: the key to the secrets of time. Victory has never been closer-but one woman has the power to change everything.
Kelsey Wells can't deny that there is something unearthly about her fierce attraction to Jared Bennett. His revelations about alien wars and time travel can't possibly be fact-yet with every seductive touch, every searing kiss, Kelsey circles closer to the truth: that although Jared is exactly what he says, he hasn't told her everything. And when the future crashes into the present, Kelsey must decide if his deception will cost them the love that should have been their destiny.

I love Knight's Gods of Midnight series, so I decided to give this sci-fi/paranormal romance series a try. Glad I did - what a great start! Knight is just marvelous at world building. I enjoyed how the hero and heroine were introduced as kids in the beginning, and how they were made to forget each other. When memories come back, the romance and attraction becomes even greater. I'm not a big sci-fi fan, so that's why I hesitated to give it a try. Glad I decided to give it a go!
