Give Me Some Love, Science Fiction Romance…
I know there is a war right or there seems to be one. I read the posts I see SF and SFR squaring off from time to time. Funny thing is, it makes no sense. SFR is a genre I love, one I fell in love with because of its inclusion. There are bad authors in every genre as well as great ones (thank all the Gods). As a kid using brown hands to hold vibrant covers reading about milky skinned blondes with rose colored cheeks, I enjoyed getting my hands on a book that took me off world.
You see that chick from another planet might have still had long silky strands but her skin may have been dusky and her side kick green. Which made me sit up, take notice and want more because I still got my HEA, HFN or female lead read while women were still fainting in historical romances, being kidnapped by the Sheik and Marrying their bosses, the women in my Science Fiction Romances were landing on earth crashing parties or running planets sending out minions to find their mates (I loved that Sh%t).
I enjoy a good fainting, kidnapping and sold to the Sheik story as much as the next person all I am saying is don’t knock it until you try it. By try it I mean the good stuff.
List coming later I want to get you hooked!
