Knight's Fork by Rowena Cherry is a taut and heady romance story of epic proportions. Move over Helen of Troy and Paris, you've been bested by Rhett and Electra. I recommend this sci-fi romance to anyone who enjoys emotional chess and divining astrological tarot cards. Five stars!

"Knight's Fork has substance, intelligence, characters I really cared for and is a romantic tale with a satisfying HEA. I may not know much about chess but I know a good book when I read one and Knight's Fork delivers the goods."
"Rowena Cherry is a brilliant writer. Blending humor and romance is much harder then most people believe and she does it effortlessly."
—Sarah Gentili, Mystiquebooks.com
Rowena Cherry is one of the best sub-genre writers due to her skill at placing the heroic characters in impossible scenarios

For those of you who read and enjoyed FORCED MATE, the long awaited story about Commander Jason is finally here and what a story it is! It was well worth the wait! I highly recommend running to get this book the minute it hits your local book store!
~Kathy Boswell, The Best Reviews
... a powerful romance laced with devastating family secrets, treachery and a sizzling passion hot enough to singe your fingers as you turn the pages. Ms. Cherry pens a compelling plot with vivid imagery and fascinating characters that will leave you breathless. Ms Cherry has become an auto buy author for me.
~Billie Jo, Romance Junkies
I really like Cherry's writing; it is literate and fast moving, with active imagery, and it challenges the reader.

***** Five Stars!
Excellent adventure and highly recommended!
~ Detra Fitch, HUNTRESS REVIEWS
This book has one of the best ending sequences. Ms. Cherry has created a seriously evil villain. Trust me, INSUFFICIENT MATING MATERIAL is a book you don't want to miss. Be sure to check out the back-story in Rowena Cherry's FORCED MATE.

Stellar wit, wonderful characters and amazing research into basic and not so basic survival techniques make for a very real and relatable environment for the prince and princess. This was without a doubt one of my favorite reads of 2006!

4 Stars. This prequel to FORCED MATE pits brother against brother. Both want to mate with the lovely Helispeta....This is a well-wrought and fast-moving tale.
~ Donna M Brown, Romantic Times
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, I highly recommend you get all the stories and read them in order, to get the full enjoyment out of Cherry world-building Sci-Fi /Futuristic romances, whose titles are based on Chess moves."
