Science Fiction Romance is a rather elastic term. The SF can be more about settings than science – think science fiction TV shows and movies. The romance can entail heat levels ranging from innocently sweet to seriously hot. There can be various ratios of romance to adventure, so it shades into romantic adventure. What I like about SFR is that there’s real emotional intensity and that somehow (a Happily Ever After or Happy For Now ending, or more than just that) there is hope – something we need more of and more stories about in this world.
