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 ...

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.

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 ...

Entropy

Entropy is book four in Jess Anastasi’s Atrophy series of Sci-Fi romances, and the first thing I’m going to say is that it’s not really a standalone. While each of the books has a self-contained plot and different romantic pairing, there are long-running storylines begun in book one (Atrophy) ...

Wicked Attraction

Wicked Attraction is the second book in Megan Hart’s The Protector trilogy in which the three books tell one overarching story – which means there are spoilers for book one in this review. In Dangerous Promise, the author made a terrific job of building her vision of the world of the late twe ...
