Happy Wine Wednesday, everybody! My Romance, Reads & Wine posts are back! I got my hands on some great books over the holidays and will be putting them together with some beautiful bottles in the coming weeks. For our first 2020 wine / bottle pair, I give you Naomi E. Lloyd's Release and one of my favorite blended white's in a new to me bottle, Conundrum. Release is a great Sci-fi romance with some terrific imagery and time travel aspects. Check out some thoughts from my review down below. Paired with a glass of Conundrum, this first book in Lloyd's Tandro series makes for the perfect romantic adventure!
What if someone you saw in your dreams, someone from another time, someone from another world, was the only someone for you?
In the new world of Tandro, 2065, there is one rule. Do not fall in love.
This is the world Tiegal dreams of escaping. Her powerful emotional energy and advanced psychic abilities makes her yearn to find a deeper connection with someone. To experience love.
And then she finds it. When an incredible release of energy transports her into the arms of Johannes, the passionate and romantic young male she has been dreaming of.
The only problem is, he exists on Earth in the year 1865. And, she has no idea how long she can stay there with him.
How can she keep herself on Earth, and protect the ones she loves, when her enemies on Tandro will do anything to get her back?
From my review:
This sci fi time travel romance was filled with beautiful imagery and the author did a great job of setting up the story world. Her descriptive writing made it easy to immerse myself in the futuristic settings and the characters were engaging. The beginning takes some time to get into but is well worth the journey as it sets the stage for the romance between Tiegal and Johannes to begin and the theme of a timeless love transcending dystopian societies was wonderful. Would recommend to sci-fi and time travel romance readers who enjoy a detailed story world.
