2012 Science Fiction Romance New Release Roundup

Danger Planet by Justin Burks

Dearest passengers, welcome to the New Year, and to a new round of fun, adventurous science fiction romance stories!

In this post, you’ll discover a formidable list of forthcoming 2012 sci-fi romance books. Most of the titles are digital-first. Content ranges from romantic SF to erotic SFR. I included brief tags based on what I know for many of them. For complete details, visit the author/publisher Web sites.

This list is a work in progress and subject to change since I’ll be updating it throughout the year. I divided the titles by month of release and listed them alphabetically by author. For future reference, you can go to my sidebar under “SFR New Releases” and click “2012 Releases” for an easy jaunt to this year’s list.

As always, if anyone knows of titles or brief tags that belong on this list, please leave a comment or email me at sfrgalaxy “at” gmail.com.
