Sci-Fi

What wonders await in a galaxy (and a bedroom) far, far away? Find out with Sci-Fi manlove! In these enticing books, a man might find a new kind of love with an alluring alien and have to adjust to the customs, culture, and courting habits of his mate, or a harsh futuristic world might pose threats to men trying to live and love in an apocalyptic world. Set in the final frontier, books featuring space or apocalyptic settings sometimes share themes with westerns, like the struggle for survival in a world where rules and residents are few and far between, or with romantic suspense, when space exploration poses dangers for men that might threaten their safety or force them into thrillingly close confines. Free from the judgments and expectations of contemporary society, manlove might flourish or find all new difficulties…either way, intrigue, imagination, and excitement are sure to come!
