When Berkley first published JANE'S WARLORD by Angela
Knight three years ago, it was a revelation. At least
to me; I had never read a mainstream romance so scorchingly
hot. There may have been erotic romances published prior to
that, but for me, Ms. Knight led the way to a whole new
world. I didn't know romance could be that sexy and still
be satisfying on an emotional level.
But that's Ms. Knight's talent; her characters do things to
each other that make me blush to read, but without
sacrificing the angst and heartfelt reconciliation that
make romances so cathartic. And that talent is on full
display in WARLORD, an anthology of new and classic
stories, all set in the same universe of the eponymous
genetically engineered warriors, the Warfems, and their
spitfire soul mates in and out of the bedroom.
In this volume, JANE'S WARLORD is reprinted, along with the
novella, Warfem, both just as shockingly sensual as
when they were first published. And to round out the
collection, the book includes two never-before-published
short stories as an added treat -- The Warlord and the
Fem and Baby, You've Changed. And what a treat
they are! If you loved JANE'S WARLORD, you'll love these
And if you're a fan of Ms. Knight's enormously popular
Mageverse series, but haven't read her more sci-fi-slanted
offerings, WARLORD is a must-read. Her heroes leap off the
page and her heroines kick serious butt. She handles the
futuristic slang and complex world-building with a fun,
light touch. But more than anything else, her sex scenes
are deliciously dirty -- inhibition-free and unbelievably
stirring. In 2004, JANE'S WARLORD pushed the boundaries of
mainstream romance -- this new anthology stretches them a
little bit further, giving us all more room to play.

turned Knight into "a rising star in the paranormal
pantheon." (In the Library Reviews)
in one volume are the complete novel Jane's Warlord
and the novella "Warfem," which transport readers into an
erotically charged time-warped world that will set
their "blood on fire and have them begging for more."
