Ralf of the family Ominar wished for love, but he never dreamed of finding it on Earth like his cousin had. Ralf loved the research on Earth and the people of Earth, and when he came across a beautiful next-door neighbor of his cousin's consort, he needed to get to know her. could he justify more research in a saturated data bank just to get to know the little law enforcement agent?

Widow Jenna Fielding, police officer in a small town, never dreamed that visitors from space could show up in her little neighborhood, but when alien technology saves her life, she can't deny that the handsome man with 'cat's' eyes was really from another planet. She had never wanted to leave her 'safe' community, but when deadly circumstances take her far away from home, she can't deny the effect this prince has on her.

Jenna crept on foot down the narrow path someone dared to justify with a sign and call a street between Charley’s Marketplace and Ming’s Chinese. Just by chance, out of the corner of her eye, she’d seen her target slinking down the wall of the family-owned grocery store and moving toward the back. He had a BOLO—be on the look out—on him. She and her partner, Mike, wanted to bring him in for questioning as a person of interest in the death of his girlfriend. It was hard to track anyone at this time of night in this part of the town. He could hide anywhere and she could probably go right past him and never see him, even with her vigilant, trained eye.

Her partner was circling around the other side of Charley’s marketplace, but she still couldn’t see him or the suspect. It was way too dark back here to see anything and the Glock 22 pistol with tact light in her hands didn’t seem to do much to dispel the misty blackness of the starless night. A cat cried out somewhere near, but she couldn't see it. This was creepier than walking across an empty parking lot after midnight… well, to most women.

She pushed the button on the side of the lapel mic of her radio. “Mike, do you see him?”

“Nothing. You?”

“Nada. He was only a few yards in front of us when we stopped the car. I wouldn’t have thought he’d get very far on foot.”

“Be careful, Jenna. It’s really dark back here, maybe too dark to go in.” Mike’s response crackled on the radio. “He couldn’t have gotten very far, but there aren’t even any stars out tonight and the lights are behind us. He would be able to see us first."

Jenna pressed the button on her lapel mic again. “Christa, we might need backup here.”

"Any units in the vicinity of Third and Broadway..." The droning dispatcher's voice didn't give any confidence to Jenna. The nearest car wasn't that close. And to think that this time last night she was having a ball taking her son around for trick or treat. What a difference one night could make.

She sighed and shined the tact light around again. The beam didn't do much to dissolve the hazy mist of the night. Mike hadn't really thought Tommy Ray would be that dangerous. Mike had known Tommy Ray since he was a kid and Mike was usually pretty cautious. She trusted his judgment more than her own since he was the senior police officer. Rarely did her department have partners—each officer had his or her own car—but Mike had wanted her to ride with him tonight to see if they could find Tommy Ray Smith. Mike thought he could talk some sense into Tommy Ray and get him to turn himself in. She'd just have to see that to believe it.

She kept both hands extended in front of her wrapped around the Glock pistol. Mike didn’t think that Tommy Ray was armed, but she didn’t want to take any chances. As far as she was concerned, he was dangerous, especially if he had strangled his girlfriend like had been reported.

“Tommy Ray! Why don’t you come out here and talk to us? We just want to ask you some questions.” Mike's shout out sounded farther away than she thought he'd be.

No answer.

And it was dark. Really dark. There wasn’t a speck of light coming from anywhere back here, except from behind her. That was dangerous to her since her tact light proved more a beacon than a help.

She edged her way around the corner of the building and smacked into a dumpster. Phew! It was ripe. Even with the cool night, it kicked up quite a stink and practically made her sick. She took a few steps away and tried to not be distracted. Before she could clear the end of the dumpster, something flashed in the light. A knife caught her across the forearm. Extreme pain shot up her arm. She lost her grip. The pistol dropped from her hands. The tact light died. She screamed. Oh man, that hurt. She grabbed her injured arm. The lash was only inches from her wrist. It was already sticky. Dagnabbit. Someone got her good. She was helpless without her gun and blind as a bat.

“SINISTER KNIGHT is a romantic suspense book with a bit of the paranormal. I am considering the dreams Kara had about the castle on Mario's island as being the paranormal part of the story. It is only a thread throughout the plot, but it adds to the storyline. The characters of Kara and Mario are strong enough to carry the story almost by themselves. The other characters are secondary and used only as needed in the plot.” -- Hattie Boyd, Scribes World

Sinister Knight: This was a very entertaining story with a very good plot line with well-developed characters. The suspense mounts until the last page - Brenda Gill

To Sail Through Time: ***** stars This book is an enjoyable read. I would recommend it for all lovers of romance. -- Sandy Cummins

To Sail Through Time, 4.5 stars out of 5. I can highly recommend this book as a 4.5 stars out of 5. Well written, well paced and thoroughly enjoyable to read. I eagerly look forward to more novels by this particular author, especially if she continues in this genre.--REVIEWED BY: Katherine Schlem

TO SAIL THROUGH TIME was a fun read, full of adventure, bits of history and romance all in one. I thought the author did a good job portraying the conflicts between a man from the 1800’s and an independent woman from the 1990’s. While this romance had the predictable fairy-tale ending, the plot had sufficient twists and turns to make the ride worthwhile. I got quite a laugh at some of the situations Bethany got herself into, and I thoroughly enjoyed the discussions she and Joshua had over human rights and fair treatment of prisoners. A good book to pick up for a fantasy trip of your own. -- ***1/2 Recommended Aimee McLeod

Eternity's Many Loves - I enjoyed reading this story, stayed up till the wee hours of the night to finish it. I can only hope [hint] that Ms. Evans has plans to write stories for Ethan's vampire friend's Demetri Lupino, and Blake. Curious to know what happens with them! I highly recommend reading, "ETERNITY'S MANY LOVES" 5 Stars, --Charlene Smith, Simegen
