Three hundred years from now the Temporal Enforcement agency sends warlord Baran Arvid and his genetically engineered wolf Freika back to the twenty-first century to protect reporter Jane Colby from a murderous time traveler Kalag Druss. Baran is to kill Kalag before the jump killer murders Jane.

Jane covers a particular brutal murder nearby her home. When she returns to her house, she finds Baran and the talkative Frieka waiting for her. Escape is impossible and soon she figures out that her warden and his sidekick come from the future. The worst that could happen to Baran is that he falls in love which distracts him from his mission and place's his beloved in peril from the deadly time traveler.

JANE'S WARLORD is an exhilarating science fiction romance that stars four delightful protagonists (to include Freika and Jane's feline furrball. The story line is action packed, but the hook begins not when Baran arrives in what sounds like the Terminator, but when Jane intelligently shreds his cover. Though the villain should never have had a chance against the juggernaut team of Freika and Baran and why he wants Jane dead comes out late, fans will appreciate this wonderful tale that showcases a new writing talent heading for the stars.
