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.

Guest Post: Five Romantic Dates for Teens in Eden City by Pintip Dunn

Forget Tomorrow Pintip Dunn

In Forget Tomorrow, Callie and Logan don’t have the opportunity to go on any dates. They’re too busy, you know, escaping from Limbo, running from FuMA, and figuring out a way to survive. Their courtship, thus, does not follow the typical path of most teenagers in Eden City. If they were normal teens, however, they might go on the following dates:

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.

Guest Post: Leanna Renee Hieber’s Top 5 Space Heroes

The Dark Nest Chronicles Leanna Renee Hieber

Leanna Renee Hieber has stopped by EverAfter to share her Top 5 Space Heroes as well as share a short excerpt from her Dark Nest Chronicles! Take it away Leanna!

1. Romana from Doctor Who, the Tom Baker years: Romana, in her second, blonde iteration, was my idol from about the age of 7, she was smart, clever, kind, and looked a bit like me so I identified with her from the start. One of the only female Timelords to travel with the Doctor, she was more his equal than other companions. A confident and capable independent character, she would often garner a line from the Doctor like “what’s Romana doing? It looks terribly interesting.” ‎And that kind of constant problem solving and creative, unabashedly intelligent mind was a great role model for a young girl.

2. Ripley from Alien – Good God did that movie terrify me. But Goodness does Ripley kick ultimate ass. Sigourney Weaver’s performance is flawless, portraying a powerful, relatable and ingenious woman. The ‎character and setting is so scary and so compelling and was not originally written for a woman. Casting Ripley as female and not changing the strength or capability of the character revolutionized how women could be written, cast and portrayed in genre films.
