Hunt the Stars

SF romance fans, your next great read is here! I got the ARC for Jessie Mihalik’s Hunt the Stars back in summer 2021, and it’s been KILLING me to have to sit on this review for SIX MONTHS before I could share it with you. If you like space adventure, action, intrigue, plot twists, and hot humano ...

Homebound

Science Fiction romances tend to battle sequences and spaceships, but Homebound by Lydia Hope is set on a dystopian Earth. In The City, an urban ruin that reads like a Dickensian slum, Gemma works for a pittance scrubbing prison cells. A surprise reassignment to the third floor, where the alien p ...

Ice Planet Barbarians

Here's my one sentence review of this book: "Ice Planet Barbarians is predictable, ridiculous, and a damn good time." You're looking for more, however, aren't you? You want to know why Ruby Dixon's wildly successful series about a group of women who, after being kidnapped from Earth and imprisone ...

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 ...

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 ...

Star-Crossed

I read a ton of young adult fantasy, and while I enjoy most of what I pick up in the genre, I'll be the first to admit to the lack of originality that seems to pervade many of today's best-selling novels. I wasn't sure what to expect when I volunteered to review Star-Crossed, the latest stand-alone ...
