I noticed Time’s Enemy by Jennette Marie Powell!
What a great idea for a blogfest, the brainchild of Ciara Knight,
co-sponsored by Ninja Captain Alex Cavanaugh.
Here’s the deal:
You can choose a book that you’ve read, something you saw on a blog or social media site, Goodreads, or a sales website. Anything that caught your eye because of a great cover, blurb or reviews, but DON’T tell the author that their book has been noticed. Instead, shout out on social media sites, and encourage others to do the same, until the author finds his/her book.
Here’s my pick:
I’m excited to tell everyone about this awesome Saturn Society time travel series by Jennette Marie Powell. I’m a sucker for time travel stories in the first place, but these books are so well written and it’s clear the author spent a lot of time (no pun intended!) researching the historical settings the main characters travel to.
These novels are jam packed with tension, suspense, intriguing plots and subplots, and some steamy romance scenes, too! Great page turners.
After I finished book one, Time’s Enemy, I was super happy to discover the second book in the series had just been released, so I was able to continue following Tony and Vi’s journey. I’m anxiously awaiting the next Saturn series novel because I miss these characters.
Here’s a description of the first book from the author’s website:
Time-travel Romance – contemporary and early 20th century America
One man against a secret society of time travelers – and the woman he loves.
One unwanted gift. One great wrong. One chance to make things right…
Tony Solomon never wanted to be a time traveler. But when a freak accident gifts him with the ability to travel in time, he becomes an unwilling initiate in a secret society of time travelers. Determined to prevent his daughter’s murder, he violates the Society’s highest law and becomes a fugitive. When the Society refuses to tell Tony how to time-travel within his own life, he seeks help from Charlotte, the woman whose life he saved during a prior trip to the past.
When Tony arrives in 1933 looking for answers, Charlotte is both thrilled and terrified to see her childhood hero. Loyal to the Society, she is honor-bound to bring to justice those who manipulate time for their own gain. In giving him sanctuary, she faces a terrible choice-condemn the man she loves and to whom she owes her life, or deny her deepest convictions by helping him escape and risk sharing his sentence.

And here’s the second book, another superb read:
Here’s the description from the author’s website:
A past shrouded in mystery
Violet Sinclair remembers nothing of her life before the day she awoke several years earlier, drenched in blood that wasn’t hers. But since she met Tony Solomon, she’s been certain of one thing – sometime in her hidden past, she knew him… loved him… and did something terrible to him.
A present fraught with danger
Time-traveler Tony Solomon is sure he never met Violet before they were coworkers, yet she bears an uncanny resemblance to the woman he loved and lost decades before he was born. After an impulse encounter leaves Violet pregnant with his child, she becomes the target of killers from the future.
A future feared in jeopardy
Framed for murder, Tony will do anything to protect Violet and their child, even if their only escape is to jump into the past, something he swore he’d never do again. But when they jump back much further than planned, they find their troubles are only beginning—and secrets can get them killed.
These are two of my favorite books. What’s yours? Do you like time travel tales or romance novels?
