Knight's Fork is a futuristic romance which combines a traditional quest story (loosely based on the Greek hero Perseus) with a romance around the issue of genetics and the royal need to breed. A Princess from a "superior" race was married to an alien Prince as living proof of a political alliance. At the time of the marriage/peace treaty no one thought that the Prince wou ...more

How do I describe “Knight’s Fork” by Rowena Cherry? This book is a conglomeration of science fiction, romance, comedy (I think), and action/suspense? To be quite frank, most of it didn’t really make sense to me. I felt like I had been dropped into the middle of a story without any cliff notes or background! I read the first book in this series but not the second and maybe that’s why I had such a hard time. In any event, I don’t think I could reco

This has got to be the worst futuristic romance I have ever read. I could only stomach 3 chapters before I left this book for dead. The author is clearly delusion and needs to take basic english classes again.

Wow, I've been waiting for 'Rhett's book for some time, and Rowena Cherry has not disappointed. KNIGHT'S FORK is amazing. Spend a moment or two and learn the chess meaning of the term and you'll laugh even harder at Ms. Cherry's antics. Every character but her leads are out for their own gain. If I were 'Rhett, I too would be bashing my head on the wall in frustration. Luckily Electra is more than capable of successfully "pinch-hitting"...in more ways than one. Hilarious and spellbinding, KNIGHT ...more

This book made me laugh out loud quite a few times!
"Knights's Fork" is a futuristic Romance and part of a series of books written by Rowena Cherry. Even though this was not the first in the series it is able to stand alone and I did not feel like I was missing out by not having read the previous books.
It took me a little while to follow the very complex family tree but I eventually figured it all out. The characters are very likable and I have to say Rowena really has a great imagination. The s

Recommended to Rosemarie by: Rowena asked for a pre-release statement
Knight’s Fork, the latest in the saga of the Tiger Princes of Tigron, brings Princess Electra-Djerroldina face to face with some unpleasant realizations. Even though she is happily married, her husband is not compatible, so there can be no children unless Electra takes some drastic measures. Drawing ‘Rhett into her scheme is not prudent as she finds out when she is trapped on a ship with ‘Rhett by her brother, Tarrant Arragon, and then has her husband and ‘Rhett’s father chasing them. Each is tr ...more

In "Forced Mate" and "Insufficient Mating Material", the character that most interested me was Djrhett, the brother of Djinni Vera. Unlike his fellow djinn, this guy is not ruled by his hormones. He's not susceptible to rut-rage. That makes him a much more believable character. In this book, he is paired unwillingly with Tarrant-Aragon's sister, Electra. She was a marvelously complex character who goes through a lot of changes in the course of the story.

Ah, heck, I can't really review this book

KNIGHT'S FORK - A FEAST FOR THE SENSES

Rowena Cherry has delivered yet another wonderful story. Her prose is delicious, giving you a visual of every scene just as though you were there. With all senses engaged, the reader finds he or she cannot stop turning pages.

Electra-Djerroldina is delectable, but she's married. Will Djarrhett, the Saurian Knight and presumed heir to the Dragon's throne, realize he loves her in time to save them both from the mechanisms of his father and his cousin, Tarrant-

One of the hardest things for a writer to do is develop a “voice”. It’s that unique narrative you ’hear’ when you read an author, very similar to a fingerprint, marking that author has developed their own style. Rowena Cherry has that in spades, and it’s spiced with a very special brand of humor, which sets her apart. She creates a strong world for her series (Mating Net, Forced Mate, and Insufficient Mating Material) for Dorchester’s Love Spell. While you will enjoy reading Knight’s Fork alone, ...more

‘Rhett is sworn to chastity. Electra needs his sperm. His father, who is still a righteous arrogant bastard with absolutely no problem playing God, sets Rhett and Electra up. One issue here is that Electra is married...

"Caught between a rock and a hard place." Or, in the case of Saurian Knight 'Rhett, caught between one desperate Queen and two ambitious Kings...and a whole host of support personnel, living "pawns" on a allegorial chessboard and sent against one lone Knight. Sure, 'Rhett can jump into action, but all directions available to him are less than friendly. A bit like leaping from the frying pan into the fire, but 'Rhett is no ordinary knight. He's a great Djinn. As is the Queen, who is offering not ...more

This is a romance book with a tiny hint of SF/Fantasy. The SF/Fantasy part feels almost contrived at times. Weird terms invented to make it seem like an alien culture. Ok, that makes sense. But then there is this reversal where Earth references, very specific Earth references, are used without any care to the fact that this is supposed to be an alien culture. Very inconsistent.

Add to that, the vibe I get is this is a trashy romance. On the other hand, there are all sorts of literary references t

This was almost a DNF. I had trouble keeping the characters in order because of the weird names. What was with the silent D in front of all of the names? And I did not have the feelings for any of the characters that I was supposed to have. It was just blah. I will not be reading anything else by this author.

This book is a marked improvement over Rowena Cherry's previous novel. The information feed is awkward still, but I think she's learning.
