Overview

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 the Saturn Society, a secret society of time travelers. Determined to prevent his daughter's murder, he violates the Society's highest law and becomes a fugitive. But the Society refuses to tell Tony how to time-travel within his own life, so 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.

Editorial Reviews

The Otherworld Diner - Lori Reader & Writer
Time's Enemy is not your typical time travel romance. It... gives it a science fiction edge, taking the reader on a page turning journey... take The Butterfly Effect, mix in The Time Traveler's Wife, and sprinkle it with Somewhere in Time, and you'll get this amazing book.
Coffeetime Romance and More - Maggie (reviewer)
I could not put it down. The characters were clear and well-drawn. The popping in and out of eras and changes...failed to confuse me. That says a lot for the skill of the author. 5 Cups

Meet the Author

Jennette Marie Powell is the author of several time travel and paranormal romance novels. A lifelong resident of the Dayton, Ohio area, she likes to dig beneath the surface and find the extraordinary beneath the mundane, whether in people, places, or historical events. While she has no desire to change the past, she enjoys learning about local history, particularly the early 20th century. Her preferred places to time travel are from her computer or Dayton’s Carillon Historical Park. By day, she wrangles data and websites in between excursions to search for the aliens and spacecraft that legends say are stashed away on the military base where she works.

Jennette lives with her husband, daughter, two Rottweilers, and assorted small critters. When not working or writing, she enjoys spending time with her family, learning about local history, cruising in her Camaro, and riding her Harley.

Love time travel stories.. This one was quite good

Would have given it 4.5 stars if I could. Time travel romance usually goes like this: a man or woman, through some mechanism, magic or device, travels back in time or into the future. Once they get there, they usually stay there for the duration of the book, learning to deal with their new circumstances and falling in love with someone from that time period along the way. TIME'S ENEMY is not your typical time travel romance. It takes this general premise and gives it a science fiction edge, taking the reader on a page turning journey. Put it this way, if you take THE BUTTERFLY EFFECT, mix in THE TIME TRAVELER'S WIFE and sprinkle it with SOMEWHERE IN TIME, you'll get this amazing book. Time Travel Paradox Powell uses this principle with deft skill and it's the thing that makes this story shine. Any change in history, no matter how minor, can have dire consequences in the present/future. Every time Tony goes back in time, he does something (often unintentional) to alter history and when he returns, his present is altered because of it. It's when he goes back in time to deliberately change the past that the Saturn Society steps in. He broke the rules and he must be stopped. Now he finds himself on the run, in the present and the past. Not Your Typical Romance Most romances have the hero and heroine meet within the first couple of chapters of the book. Not so here. The romance between Tony and Charlotte doesn't even get started until the middle of the book. That's a long time to wait in romance-land, but experiencing Tony's journey getting there was well worth it. I love how the author portrays his confusion and desperation when he starts time traveling. He doesn't understand what's happening, he's scared and disoriented, and has no control over where and when he goes (at least in the beginning). Not Perfect, but Close As I said before, I thought this was a page turner of a book. But it's not without its flaws. There are a few points in the middle where the pacing drags in comparison to the fast paced beginning and ending; one chapter makes use of short, choppy scene breaks which bothered me; and the author has an affinity for using parentheses throughout the narrative, which was a bit jarring. I use them a lot myself (as you can tell), just not in my fiction writing. But these flaws were minor, and didn't diminish the enjoyment of the book. What Makes This A Perfect Indie Book I'm pretty sure I know why this book didn't sell to the NY Big 6. It's a mix of romance, sci-fi, and paranormal fiction. I'm guessing editors and agents loved it, but just didn't know how to market it. Like many indie books, this one didn't fit in the tidy NY box, but it's definitely one you don't want to miss.

I couldn't put this down! I would have reveiwed it sooner, but I am just no recovering from two sleepless nights of reading!! Definitly worth the purchase, and I will be getting the sequel as soon as I recover some sleep!

This is a fast-paced read with nary a dull moment. Tony is a sensitive hero, willing to do whatever he must for those he loves, and Charlotte is a gutsy heroine who clearly deserves him. The action spans various times and places, always giving the reader a genuine sense of being in that era. I look forward to more Saturn Society romantic adventures from Ms. Powell.
