#1 New York Times bestselling author Nora Roberts enchants listeners with this time-traveling romance about one man torn between his own time and the woman he loves in the past.
Stranded in the present, time traveler Caleb Hornblower's biggest problem isn't returning to the twenty-third century—but falling head over heels for the beguiling Liberty Stone, who shows him a love more powerful than time itself. Though Caleb knows he belongs in the future, how can he leave the past, and Liberty, behind?

The second of my beachy/poolside listen recommendations is Time Was by Nora Roberts. Even though it is an older book, it fits the genre in every way! The tone is lighthearted, the storyline is creative, and the characters are likable. Because the storyline involves time travel, there is a timeless quality about it that makes up for the fact that the book was first published in 1989. Caleb Hornblower is the time traveler who finds he has fallen backward from the 23rd century into the 20th century so he knows things Liberty Stone can’t even imagine. As an archeologist, Libby spends her time delving into the past in order to better understand ancient civilizations. What happens when Miss “Let’s Look for Ancient Ruins” meets Mr. “Been There, Done That” makes for a delightful story of how two people suspend their disbelief and fall in love.
Luke Daniels is very engaging as the voices of Libby and Caleb. He sets just the right tones for the serious and reticent scholar firmly rooted in the past and the high-spirited daredevil from the future.
I highly recommend Time Was to anyone who likes a good romance. It is a sweet love story with just the right amount of steam thrown in. It is entertaining enough to hold your attention but will allow you to put it aside for a swim or a nice evening out. The ending is satisfying and segues nicely into the second book in the series Times Change.
