Science Fiction Romance


 

Archangel's Viper
Guild Hunter
by Nalini Singh

Once a broken girl known as Sorrow, Holly Chang now prowls the shadowy gray underground of the city for the angels. But it's not her winged allies who make her a wanted woman--it's the unknown power coursing through her veins. Brutalized by an insane archangel, she was left with the bloodlust of a vampire, the ability to mesmerize her prey, and a poisonous bite.

Now, someone has put a bounty on her head...
  


The Corsair's Captive
by Ruby Dixon

A pirate doesn’t ask for permission - he takes. When I see the delicate human female collared and enslaved by the smuggler I’m about to swindle, I do what any male would do. I take her from him. It’s what I do best, after all. Now Fran’s mine, and I’m never giving her up. On board my spaceship, she’ll be safe. She’ll wear my clothes, eat my food, and sleep in my bed. I’ll keep her safe from a galaxy that wishes her harm. But my sweet Fran wants nothing more than to return to Earth. How can I take her home when she holds my heart in her dainty, five-fingered hands? This story stands completely alone and is only marginally connected to the Ice Planet Barbarians series and Prison Planet Barbarian. You do not need to read those books in order to follow this one.

She craves freedom, and when Liam informs Melody that her father has given him permission to take her as his mate, she decides it is time to make her escape. But the huge, handsome brute merely tosses her over his shoulder and brings her back home, then takes her over his knee and spanks her thoroughly.

Though over the following days Melody tries everything she can think of to drive Liam away, he assures her they share a powerful bond and responds to her repeated provocations with a firm hand applied to her bare bottom. Despite his stern punishments, when he holds her in his arms afterwards Melody cannot deny her body’s response to his skillful caresses and she begins to secretly yearn for his touch. But can she trust her heart to a man who so firmly insists on her complete obedience and submission?
    


Claiming Her Alien Warrior
Sci-fi Alien Warrior Invasion Romance
Warriors of the Lathar
by Mina Carter

In a race against the clock, she must betray his trust to achieve her mission… But fooling an alien warrior comes with a price. No longer a captive but a guest of the alien warrior race, the Lathar, Jane Allen hasn’t forgotten what she is: a hard as nails marine major. Tasked with finding a way to beat the technologically advanced aliens, she needs to find answers for her superiors… before they arm the nukes and give the Lathar an excuse for war. Because the little green men aren’t so little. Or green… they’re large, ripped, scarily-attractive alpha male warriors hot enough to make any red-blooded woman weak at the knees. Especially one particular alien warrior with black hair and a sexy growl she can’t resist… She’s his… she just doesn’t know it yet. Karryl K’Vass has wanted the human woman, Jane, from the moment he saw her. But she’s a tricky one, evading his claim even though he knows she desires him. His campaign for her heart is stalled when duty calls him away; a mission into a dangerous part of space to gather intelligence on the Empire’s enemies. A beautiful stowaway is the last thing he needs, even if she does make his body burn. He’ll finish his mission and get her back to the safety of Lathar Prime… Then maybe he can claim her as his mate. But no plan survives contact with the enemy. Reptilian mercenaries, a crash landing, and a case of amnesia later and they land in the clutches of their enemies who think it would be better if Karryl took a long walk out of a short airlock...
