Galaxy Rising Well Galaxy Rising by John Otto has a good deal of romance in it along with exciting concepts backed up with hard science. Galaxy Rising is the sequel to Broken planet which would I am sure would fit your criteria as well. Look up reviews on amazon sites...good luck with your search.

"A young girl must seduce a human mate who had been chosen by her alien parents to take back to her planet" in my new series Socialite 1. Book 1 is available as a free Kindle book so readers could try the series without risk.

I just read the first 3 in the The Moons of Rehnor series starting with The Boy who Lit up the Sky and I thought they were great. I loved the love story! Read my reviews.

I just read "Human Is" by P. K. Dick. Not so much about quantum entanglement but a fortuitous event to be sure. One of his other short stories in the collection seems to be about what you are talking about but it is kind of an anti-love story... that one was called "The World She Wanted."

Hi Anjela,

If your husband enjoys military sci-fi, give Jack Campbell's "Lost Fleet" series a shot. The main character develops a relationship with someone while on a dangerous and long mission - but because of regulations they can't pursue it. As a result, they develop a romance the old-fashioned way - with subtlety. What I think you and your husband would really enjoy is how one of the characters feels like events are directed by a fate beyond the control of mortals. And although the actual "payoff" doesn't happen until book six, the scene (in that book) where one partner chases after the other is gratifying for anyone who believes in opening their heart and giving their all.

Regards,

Robert Bowden

Starting with City of Pearl (Wess'Har) a great series by Karen Traviss. The story continues through all six volumes so don't read them out of order or skip one. In fact, have all six lined up on your nightstand or in your Kindle budget before you start. About 400 pages each. Great concepts, fascinating characters, excellent writing, wonderful and unusual love story.

You might like Polydimensional Honeymooners. I didn't believe in soulmates, now I wonder. :)

Vinge is a good suggestion, but try the Psion series if you want love stories. Catspaw and Dreamfall especially. If you're into retro, try Heinlein's Time Enough for Love, offbeat but truly touching love story.

Try "Kati of Terra Book One: Escape From The Drowned Planet" by Helena Puumala. She's a new author and very very good. This book is a page turner, I couldn't put it down and am waiting for Book Two to be released. It's about the adventures of a young earth woman who gets kidnapped and ends up on a strange planet. There's a romance that develops between the main characters that I really liked. Well worth the $3.99 I paid for it on Kindle.
