Guest Post: “Four Authors of Erotic SciFi Romance” by Veronica Scott

In the mood to read a book that combines supernova-hot erotic elements with a futuristic plot?

Today I’m highlighting a few authors who deliver just that in their scifi. Between them, these ladies deploy everything, from BDSM and femdom to spanking and menage in their intergalactic adventures. Definitely not for the under 18 crowd!

Under By Treaty Kayla Stonor
Kayla Stonor:  Her Qui Treaty Collection is an autobuy for me. Under By Treaty is the first volume in the series and got me completely hooked on Ms. Stonor and the Qui-human relations. There’s a human alpha hero in the first book, General Jaden, sacrificed by his own people for the greater good, given up as a prisoner as the book opens. A sexy alien shapeshifter who may or may not be trying to save Earth from destruction by her own people is his captor.  Intergalactic politics laced with domination, submission and devotion influence Jaden’s fate among  the aliens. Several major plot twists occur to keep the action moving nicely. The science fiction worldbuilding is well-handled and I definitely bought into the romance that develops between Jaden and the very alien heroine.

Aliens to Special Forces Soldiers: Science Fiction Romance Heroes

EverAfter Romance

If you like science fiction romance (SFR), there’s a galaxy full of adventure to be had, featuring heroes for all tastes. I thought I’d give a few examples of the novels in some major subgenres today. Definitely not an all-inclusive list because there are so many SFRs being published every month, which is a terrific thing for us voracious readers!

Aliens: If we’re going to talk science fiction romance, we might as well start off with residents from Out There, right? New York Times Best Seller S. E. Smith Merrick’s Maiden (Cosmos Gateway Book 5) is a good example, with a feisty human heroine who helps the alien hero escape imprisonment. Torkel’s Chosen by Michele Howard tells the story of an Earth woman who chooses to become sort of a mail order bride of the future, going offworld to wed an alien warrior. Catherine Spangler’s Shadow Fires (Shielder Series Book 5) features both a hero and a heroine from alien races and tackles some tough cultural issues along with the romance. Pauline Baird Jones’s The Key is another exciting series with nonstop adventure, featuring a woman top gun pilot from Earth and an alien fighter pilot, stranded together in space.
