The list author says: "This list represents my top five (so far) picks for Science Fiction Romance. This unique genre blends both genres into compelling character-driven stories. If you're never given SFR a try, then you might want to start with one of these selections.
If you're already an avid SFR fan and you've missed any of the following novels, be sure to add them to your TBR stack."
"My all-time favorite. Sci-Fi Romance with a unique blend of military themes and Australian Aborigine mythology. Throw in a mysterious alien transportation system and a dangerous conspiracy and there's so much here to love. I found Sgt. Terry Myell to be one of the most compelling male MCs in SFR."
"A great read with an unforgettable ending that tests the bonds between the two MCs. The hero, Admiral Brandon Kel-Paten, is an especially unique and compelling character. His lengthy history as the nemesis of the female MC, Captain "Sass" Sebastian adds wonderful layer to their relationship."
"Actually a combination of two books, I especially liked the second, originally titled Barrayar. A flawed, yet honorable hero and heroine you'll root for. When this compelling heroine makes a threat, she lives up to it."
"A dark psychological journey with a scattering of epic space battles. This story explores the capacity of the human mind and the conflict arising between two people when love and destiny are at odds. This is the sequel to Gabriel's Ghost, which I would recommend reading before this continuing SFR adventure."
"The sequel to Grimspace, which was quite a good read in itself. The writing is sharp, fresh and so full of wit it often made me laugh out loud. Being the middle book in the series (to date) the resolution between the MCs wasn't as stellar as I had hoped, but the next book, Doubleblind, promises to be even better."
