IMPOSSIBLE LOVE: After scattering her beloved grandfather's ashes in the Caribbean, Larissa Parish is swept overboard and washes up on a deserted island. She comes face to face with a man who, most impossibly, is her grandfather's cohort from World War II. Can she learn to fully give herself to this mouthwatering 40s hunk? And also figure a way to leave this outpost in the Bermuda Triangle? DIFFERENT GENERATIONS: Army Air Force pilot, Jack Harrington, can't believe his good luck when he spots Larissa in the waters by his desert island. Stranded for what he believes is five years, he thinks her daft because she seems to have forgotten World War II. Can he come to terms with the news that he's a "1940s retread" and convince himself that Larissa could love him, no matter how "old" he is?
Originally from New York, Susanne lives in the Pacific Northwest, by way of Okinawa, Montana, Alabama, and Florida. Along with her husband, daughter, and feisty Siamese cat, she enjoys the area's beautiful ponderosa pine trees and wide, open spaces--a perfect environment for writing.

"In THE COMING, Susanne Marie Knight takes us back in time to 1945. The dialogue is done exceptionally well with the change of times and the characters are strong. The plot pulls us into the story immediately and the reader will enjoy the experience. It is a short read and I read it in one sitting, wanting to find out how the two protagonists worked out their problems to a satisfying ending." Overall rating: 3 HEARTS, Sensuality rating: Mildly sensual Reviewer: Mariah
"THE COMING is a time-travel romance with an interesting twist that I would love to see used in future books. The 1940s was a new time period for me and I really enjoyed meeting the characters, so much so that I will be looking out for similar books in the future…Overall THE COMING was a highly entertaining read offering a tantalizing glimpse into a very near past." Reviewed by B. Small
"The book is peopled with interesting characters and a story line that keeps you glued to the pages, and those who enjoy tales that include inexplicable happenings with satisfactorily happy endings will certainly enjoy [The Coming] as I did." Reviewed by SIMIGEN
"Susanne Marie Knight does a wonderful job of plopping a World War II vet in the middle of the twenty first century. The sense of awe and wonder at the technologies, and the old-fashioned moral code came together in a strong and moving story. From the first paragraph I was hooked and couldn’t wait to find out how they overcame the barrage of obstacles laid in their paths." Reviewed by Rae Douglas of Romance Junkies, www.romancejunkies.com, Blue Ribbon Rating 5
"Ms. Knight has created such loving characters in Larissa and Jack. The other characters in this story were also great (and I am) wondering if they will have their own story. Great read and creative background to the newfound love they feel for each other." Reviewed by Lydia
"A unique twist on the time travel idea, The Coming treats us to the possibility that the strange happenings in the Triangle are real. Both Jack and Larrissa are open minded enough to believe in the reality of the moment. We are treated to wonderful characters and a story that moves swiftly even on island time. Grab this book and see if a man from the past and a woman searching for a hero can find their place in the world." Reviewed by Jenni for A Romance Review
"THE COMING is a fun read. Ms. Knight is a delightful storyteller with a flair for crossing different genres and this book is no exception; it's time travel with a twist. There are a few minor threads that run through the story but everything is nicely tied up in the end. The secondary characters are well drawn and engaging. Larissa and Jack are immediately attracted to each other, and the pages turn quickly as the tale rolls through the excitement and mystery of different time periods..." Reviewed by Romance Reviews Today
"THE COMING just sucks you right in from the very first page to the last. It keeps you going till you're bursting from anticipation of the end. Larissa is an intelligent woman who can take care of herself and not one of those wimpy, needy girls. Jack is strong, handsome, filled with demons of his own, and even alpha in his own way. Together though they are two halves that make a whole. Their hope, blooming love, and happiness shines in the book. Ms. Knight is the best!" Reviewed By: Gabrielle Channing of Romantic Interludes
"Susanne Marie Knight has written a story with a wonderful premise. The idea that Larry would go dump her Grandfather's ashes and wind up in the same place as her Gramps best friend is terrific. It hooked me from the first page. Will they be able to get back to the present or will they be stuck on the island paradise forever? It intrigued me and I really enjoyed the story." Lydia Funneman for Writers Unlimited
"To begin with, this is the best book I've read in a long time. I won't give the ending away. Even if you ply me with peanut butter cookies, I won't tell, so don't ask! I loved the beginning. It was different and interesting. Bermuda Triangle? Hurray! I'm into sci-fi, so this book was particularly interesting to me. Yesterday man meets tomorrow woman. Bound to be some disagreements and there are. Are they rescued? Do they stay on that island for the rest of their lives? Do they fall in love and get married? There! That's all I'm going to say... Well, maybe I'll add, read it! You won't regret it" Reviewed by Anna, reader at email@example.com
“I don’t know what happened. There I was, scattering my grandfather’s ashes, and then... it was so odd. The weather was perfect, but then suddenly a big wave swept me... overboard.” Larissa shuddered again, obviously reliving the trauma. “Thank you for rescuing--”
His rescue ship was to be a yacht! Might as well go first class, after all, the four of them not only deserved it, but earned it.
Jack placed his index finger against her lips, and grew amazed at just how delicious that brief touch felt. “No need to thank me, Larissa. Once we flag down your friends, then you’ll have returned the favor by rescuing us as well.”
She gazed up at him with a questioning look. “But how?”
Christ, she was gorgeous, even in her drowned rat state. But she shivered almost uncontrollably.
Hurrying to his thatched hut awkwardly constructed of palm fronds, he gently sat her on the edge of his makeshift bed, draped a blanket around her, and started massaging her toes with a towel. The poor kid was completely out of it; she almost fell down on top of the bed, but valiantly fought to stay upright.
After he rolled woolen socks onto her icy feet, he helped her into his pilot’s jacket--to take away the chills. “Don’t worry about a thing. Let’s just get you warm....”
Hell, the desire in his voice was thick enough to cut. Hopefully, she didn’t notice. He stepped away and got her a glass of collected rain water to drink. “I’m Jack Harrington, by the way. The others are Baker, Scarpelli, and Flannery.”
She thanked him with her eyes, then glanced around his hovel that he called home. Seeing it through her perspective, he scratched his hairy chin, then shrugged. Neither he nor his “house” were prepared for female company. One of the first things he’d do when she fell asleep was shave, then trim his overlong hair.
“Do you mind if I take a nap?” She yawned, and her eyelids drooped sensually. “I have a thousand questions but I can’t seem...” She yawned again. “... to think of any of them.”
Christ, he could use that cold shower right about now. But that was not in the cards, so he lifted the covers and eased her into the bed, tucking her in. Incredible how smooth her skin felt. “As Baker would say, ‘No worries.’ I’ve a ton of questions, too, but they’ll wait. You sleep now, I’ll be on the lookout for your friends.”
An idle thought crossed his mind. Too bad his cot wasn’t a double wide one.
“Thank you, Jack.” She snuggled under the blankets looking for all the world like an angel. “You’re very kind.”
Kind? He took one more gander at his unexpected manna from heaven, then picked up his shaving supplies and left the hut. When she woke up, she’d discover her rescuer to be a clean-shaven United States Army Air Force captain, instead of a sorry ass beach bum. Not that it would make any real difference. Soon, very soon, he would be back in the States. Home sweet home--enjoying a hero’s welcome. And better than that, he could take to the skies once again.
Anticipation zapped a clear path to his midsection. By Christ, he was so pumped up, he could almost taste it!
