My Favorite Science Fiction Romance – Planet X

My favorite book in my genre is Planet X by Evangeline Anderson. The first time I read this book, it blew my mind.

Literally.

I have always loved science fiction and romance. But when they are put together, more often than not the ‘science’ part of science fiction is sacrificed in order to appeal to more mainstream romance consumers.

In Planet X, we have a mix of space travel, anthropology, and steamy scenes with an alien hero who looks like Vin Diesel in Pitch Black (and what’s not to like about THAT?!).

We also have some standard science fiction moral and ethical dilemmas – dealing with more primitive cultures, human trafficking, and the ethical use of brain chips.

I deeply respect Evangeline for her willingness to stray into territory not covered by other authors at the time, and for crafting the story so well that the reader doesn’t even realize those social issues are being explored until afterwards. I also admire Ellora’s Cave and Aphrodesia for publishing her work and similar works by other authors that don’t fit into the mainstream market.

Even still, Evangeline had to self-publish many of her works, most of which didn’t become popular until quite recently when her more mainstream Brides of the Kindred series introduced people to her writing.

In addition to Planet X, I would recommend Punishing Tabitha (super hot!), For Her Pleasure (hot and funny), The Last Man on Earth (hot and unique), and Pleasure Planet (hot and diverse) as her other best science fiction works.

I credit Evangeline Anderson with giving me the inspiration to write, and to strike out on my own rather than try to conform to the demands of mainstream publishers. In fact, the heroine of my upcoming steampunk series is named Evangeline in her honor.
