Thanks to a tip from a Galaxy Express passenger, I learned about two science-based time travel romances by Jennette Marie Powell: TIME'S ENEMY (Saturn Society #1) and TIME'S FUGITIVE (Saturn Society #2).

The information emphasized again for me how important word-of-mouth is for a niche genre like sci-fi romance. I've been blogging for longer than the author's books have been out (TIME'S ENEMY originally released in 2011), but I'm only just now learning about them. And I've blogged about time travel sci-fi romances on several occasions...

The search for SFR style time travel romances is especially fraught with difficulty because most time travel romances to date are supernatural in nature. So readers interested in scientifically based ones have to do lots of digging.
Marketing, of course, is an issue as well. The keywords I use to search for SFR time travel romances may differ from how authors are describing their books (in other words, a Search Engine Optimization disconnect). The Galaxy Express and even the whole SFR community may be unknown to some authors who otherwise might reach out to me about their books. Add up all the obstacles and it's no wonder that years go by before I learn about one title or another. :(
