Science Fiction Romance

A-
Dark Matters

The Class 5 series is the absolute best space opera romance available. I’ve adored every one of the books in the set and Dark Matters, fourth in the saga, is no exception. I would strongly recommend reading all three preceding novels; this one is enjoyed best when you know the backstory. She ...

End Transmission

I enjoyed Relaunch Mission, the first book in Robyn Bachar’s Galactic Cold War series, set in a future in which the Cold War never ended and which follows the adventures of the members of the crew of the privateer ship Mombasa.  I somehow missed the second book, Contingency Plan, but decided to p ...

Purple Haze

Purple Haze, book two in Kelly Jensen’s Aliens in New York series picks up around six months after the events of Uncommon Ground, and sees Dillon Lee and his billionaire (alien) lover happily living together though still working to accept the huge changes that have occurred in both their lives.  ...

Uncommon Ground

Kelly Jensen’s Uncommon Ground is book one in her Aliens in New York duology, a story that combines mystery, science fiction and a bit of action with a tender and poignant romance between two people who don’t really fit anywhere – until they find each other. Dillon Lee has always felt like ...

To See the Sun

I don't read many sci-fi romances - which is odd considering to generally like sci-fi movies and TV shows - but I was prompted to pick up To See the Sun becasue I really enjoyed Kelly Jensen's recent This Time Forever series, a trilogy of novels in which a group of men in their late forties finally ...

Captive Desire

A title like Captive Desire may put you in mind of a 1980s old school romance with a Fabio cover, but this book dates from 2018 and is the the second erotic science fiction story in Robin Lovett’s Planet of Desire series. It’s an opposites attract romance featuring two species previously at war ...

Polaris Rising

Jessie Mihalik starts off a brand-new space opera saga with Polaris Rising, the first book in The Consortium Rebellion series. They meet in prison. Technically, the holding cell of a mercenary ship. Both have been picked up for the value of their bounties. Ada von Hasenberg is a princess on the r ...

Navigating the Stars

Much as I’ve enjoyed Ms. Snyder’s work in the past, I don’t follow her release schedule very closely. But when I do find out about a new release, I’m ready to dive right in. It didn’t even take ten pages of Navigating the Stars to have me hooked and desperate to read more. The premise o ...

Nightchaser

Amanda Bouchet starts off a brand-new space opera saga with Nightchaser, the first book in the Nightchaser series. Tess Bailey is no petty thief. She’s a space age Robin Hood who’s just pulled off the greatest heist of her life: the theft of a secret lab creating super-soldiers for the Galact ...

Virtual Sabotage

Virtual Sabotage is a standalone blend of mystery and science fiction, set in a world not all that different from the one you and I currently inhabit. I was fascinated by its premise, since virtual reality has been an interest of mine for the past few years, but the story itself failed to meet my ex ...
