Chalice Bearer Sneak Peek

Seven-day 2, Day 1 This day, I live.  Lilian stretches sleep tight limbs, toes curling against the chill tile, even as the barren balcony overlooking the interior courtyard begins to glow with morning light. There is only this day.  Widening her stance, she settles the gold warbelt into place. She has tried sleeping without it... Continue Reading →

The Ripped Bodice Bookstore in SoCal is conducting their third annual Summer Romance Bingo. I thought it would be fun to take their bingo card of categories again this year and identify scifi romance titles that would satisfy the requirements for readers. I asked the members of The SciFi Romance Brigade on Facebook to recommend books and definitely allowed authors to recommend their own titles. I said I’d take the first three to five books to be suggested in each category, which I’ve pretty much stuck to, although some categories were hard to fulfill and others were wayyy popular!

As the Ripped Bodice notes on their rules, “You can interpret the categories however you want” so we did take a bit of license on a few to fit scifi romance.

To be clear, we’re NOT playing bingo here, merely providing a list of suggestions! Hope over to the…

Spotlight on Indie Romance: Dark SFR

Dark romance is a bit of contradiction in terms. Romance, with its happily-ever-after requirement, does not mix well with dark. Often, dark romance is used to describe less than healthy relationships that include passion and sex. Although, there are those authors who can turn what starts in a dark place into a believable HEA; with... Continue Reading →
