Last weekend I read Time’s Enemy by Jennette Marie Powell. I really recommend you read this book. It is a great tale of time travel and the consequences of messing with the past. Jennette is a fine writer with a master’s touch at keeping up the tension. (You have to remember to breathe)
Time’s Enemy is Jennette’s first novel, or so I believe. This bodes well for the future for she will surely get better and, I for one, can’t wait for more adventures of Charlotte and Tony. Great work Jennette

This is a wonderfully-paced book that brings all the best parts of Inception, Jumpers, and old-school time-travel romances and puts them together along with a little dash of Groundhog Day for good measure. If you liked Linda Howard's "Son of the Morning", "Time's Enemy" will fill your craving for the same densely-plotted adventure romance.
I was a fan of the old-school time travel romances that used to be put out by Zebra and Lovespell, but I was always disappointed they didn't go further into science fiction territory. Time's Enemy does. If you've been looking for that perfect hybrid between romance and science fiction, here it is.
There's a good solid romance that's an integral part of not only the story, but the main character's life--Tony cannot be the same hero without the romance. Balanced just so with the romance is a solid science fiction adventure that will please any fan of Dr. Who or Star Trek--the Saturn Society is an intriguing, complex, lightly science-based society of time travelers that grapples with both the ethics and logic of temporal paradox. Wrap that all in a well-researched, exciting adventure through time in Dayton, Ohio, and you get a fascinating, unputdownable story rich in action, romance, and history.
You'll want to read this one on your smartphone, because you'll be up all night with it. Formatting and editing are top notch and I experienced no problems whatsoever reading this on my smartphone (Android, Aldiko reader, epub format).
