Time Travel Romance
Rating: 3 cups
Delora Melendez makes an impromptu decision to take a trip to Mexico. She has an inexplicable urge to visit the home of her ancestors, the Mayans.
Ashwan is a Mayan prince who lost his one true love five years ago. He is being pressured to marry and produce heirs, but refuses. He is awaiting the return of the only woman he will ever love.
After Delora makes the treacherous trip to the top of the Great Pyramid at Chichen Itza, she encounters a very handsome man dressed as an ancient Mayan warrior. He escorts a very confused Delora through a restored Chichen Itza to a cave where she will be safe. Delora is told of her life as a Mayan woman and how much she and Ashwan meant to each other. But will their love withstand time and keep them together forever?
Ms. Blexrud has produced yet another fun novel. She successfully places a modern day woman right in the middle of the advanced, yet volatile center of Mayan civilization. The communication between the two main characters is fantastic, as well as Delora’s self-discovery of who she once was. This story will leave the reader hanging, so I am very hopeful that a sequel is in the works.
