Mercury's War

Earlier this year I granted DIK status to Dawn's Awakening, the previous single title release in Lora Leigh's Breeds series, and just last month gave her Breeds short story in the Shifter anthology a B-. It's clear I'm a fan of this series, but since my review of another of her recent single titles ...

Shades of Dark

When Shades of Dark arrived, I was excited because it was my first Linnea Sinclair novel and I’ve read such good things about her writing. Then I noticed that it was the second of a series involving the same couple, somewhat of a disappointment because I find it incredibly hard to enter a world-bu ...

Moonstruck

I love science fiction romances, so when I was offered the opportunity to review Susan Grant’s Moonstruck, the first volume in her new Borderlands series, I was delighted. I have not yet read (although I plan to) her last trilogy, to which this book is a sequel, but you needn’t do so in order to ...

Grimspace

After reading a number of glowing online reviews of Grimspace by Ann Aguirre, I got curious. I love SF romances and space opera, and this sounded like an interesting novel. Things started off compelling enough, but I lost all interest in the characters’ fate after the first third and grew to despi ...

The Down Home Zombie Blues

In the three Linnea Sinclair novels I read before picking up The Down Home Zombie Blues, there is a similar set-up: Ordinary woman meets man who is somehow – technically, biologically, psychologically – enhanced and has super-human powers. Now don’t get me wrong. I loved each of these books an ...

How to Lose an Extraterrestrial in 10 Days

How To Lose An Extraterrestrial in 10 Days is the last in Susan Grant's very enjoyable science fiction trilogy (the first two titles are Your Planet or Mine and My Favorite Earthling). While paranormal romances are sprouting up like weeds, science fiction romances are hard to find, and this is ...

Games of Command

After finishing Linnea Sinclair’s novel, I felt a strong urge to go on a marathon of Star Trek episodes. However, despite its similarities to the TV series, the plot of Games of Command is its own, a thoroughly entertaining one and toward the end, an incredibly exciting, thrilling read Long-tim ...

My Favorite Earthling

It’s been along time since I read a science fiction (as opposed to fantasy) romance. Not having read the first book in Susan Grant’s series I was a bit lost, but after a few chapters I got my bearings. Jared Jasper’s family has been prominent in California politics for years and held up p ...

Close Encounters of the Sexy Kind

Mala lives a life of perfection on her planet of Nerak. Everyone is healthy, wealthy, and perfectly balanced. Technology provides quick fixes for everything - hormonal imbalances, illness, hunger, even sexual desire. Nerak is perfectly peaceful, having phased men out completely and thus the main ins ...

True Blood

As I read True Blood, I kept flipping to the front cover to check the writer’s name. Doesn’t Patricia Waddell usually write historical romances? Her offering of SF romance is terrific! The Llyndar, a Korcian freighter ship, is traveling through an area controlled by the League of Planets wh ...
