Looking for Love in a Futuristic World

 by Jessica E. Subject

     There are so many freedoms in writing science fiction romance. One of the options is to write a romance story that is set in the distant future.
     Another Night, Another Planet is set in a time when there is no middle class, and the divide between the rich and the poor is immense. The rich can take vacations to space on luxury cruisers, but the only way for the poor to get off planet is to know someone who can get them a working position on the spacecraft.
That is what happens to the heroine in Another Night, Another Planet. Ava works on a cruise ship that takes tourists to various planets in the universe. And she is looking for love. Even though she has been propositioned and involved with many passengers onboard, they want nothing to do with her after she leaves their room. So, she applies to the 1Night Stand dating service in order to find a man who wants more than just sex. Although the owner of the dating service, Madame Eve, only guarantees one night, Ava hopes something more will come out of her one-night stand.
To me, even in the future, the longing to find someone to share your life with will never disappear. It is part of who we are as humans.

Tell me: How do you think things will be different in the future when it comes to relationships and love?

Pizza For Two = Romance

by Mary Quast

In the book Eagle Dance, the main characters bond over pizza. There is love at first sight, so why not have love over pizza?
Dyami planned to pull out all his charms and romance this gal. Sexy as hell, with a wit to match his, she also held an appreciation for a well-made pizza.
A couple we know looked for something they could do together that would add a little spice to their marriage. They signed up for a pizza cooking class. Once they got into the kneading and tossing the dough, stress slipped away and was replaced with light hearted humor. The new activity became the charm they needed.
We have pizza night as a family. Where is the romance in that? Hubby pours a glass of wine for he and I while I prepare the dough. We often make a hard toast with toppings to snack on with our wine while the pizza cooks. After we are caught kissing a few times, the boys complain of how gross we are and exit to the living room.
Looking for a cheap date night for you and your honey? Grab a bottle of wine and a takeout pizza then head to a local park with a blanket. If the weather is yucky, do what Dyami and Amanda did in Eagle Dance. They relaxed in front of a cozy fire in the fireplace to enjoy their wine and pizza. But of course they had chocolate and caramel syrup for dessert. You’ll have to read the book to find out if they put it on ice cream or each other.

Eagle Dance
Dyami Schafer, a Native American from the Chippewa tribe, leads a lonely life due to his large size and unusual appearance. When his nesting instinct sets in, he turns to Madame Eve and 1Night Stand to help him find his spirit mate. Or at least a woman who accepts him as an eagle shifter.
Amanda Collins never stopped loving the Chippewa boy she knew from her childhood. Maybe a night with a Native American man will help her forget the past and let her move on with her life.
Sometimes, it’s necessary to take a step into the past before dancing into the future. With the help of Madame Eve, will the Spirit of the Eagle carry Dyami and Amanda?
