Almost 20 Free eBook Downloads of Science Fiction Romance

Cat BookBack in December 2009, Ella Drake (FIRESTORM ON E’TERRA), featured a list of free ebook downloads in the realm of science fiction romance. I had blogged about some free stories back in 2008. Given my recent discovery of Ms. Drake’s post, I figured now was a good time to compile them all.

Some you may know about already; some may be new. Most of them are shorts, but there are a few full-length novels available as well. The heat levels range from sweet to sizzling.

I'd love for this list to grow. If you’re an author with a free science fiction romance (regardless of length or heat level) and don’t see your story listed here, please leave a comment or email me the link and I will add it to the list (sfrgalaxy “at” gmail.com).

The list is in alphabetical order by author’s last name:

Still We Live – Ann Aguirre

Burned And Burning – Joyce Ellen Armond

SUNRISE ALLEY and PRIMARY INVERSION – Catherine Asaro (both courtesy of the Baen Free Library)

EXILE'S BURN – Elaine Corvidae

ETHEL THE SPACE PIRATE – Jess Granger

A Day in the Life: Stella – Felicity Heaton

(To download the file, you must first join the Alinar Publishing Yahoo Group).

Last Call on Eldora Station – Isabo Kelly

Pure Bond – Kim Knox

GMS Mercy

Heroes Are Forever and Fortune Cat's Visit - Heather Massey

Star Song – Karin Shah

I Was An Alien Cat Toy – Ann Somerville

THE YOSHIN’S SHIELD – Karen Reis

Rule Number One – S. L. Viehl (From a collection of stories in the author’s StarDoc universe)

ALIEN BEACH
& THE ARGUS PROJECT – A.R. Yngve (romantic SF)

What’s been your experience with free ebooks? Have you ever purchased books by an author based on a free PDF sample? Do you think SFR could use a few more free stories to entice readers new to the subgenre?

Joyfully yours,
