Seeking SFRs About Alien Heroes & Human Heroines On Earth



Star-crossed lovers Do Min Joon & Cheon Song Yi

In light of the big news that ABC is planning to adapt the popular Korean drama MY LOVE FROM ANOTHER STAR, I figured this would be a great time to crowdsource a list of similar science fiction romance books!

To learn more about the show itself, read My Epic Post On MY LOVE FROM ANOTHER STAR (no major spoilers). Tl;dr: MY LOVE FROM ANOTHER STAR is about a romance between Do Min Joon, an alien who's a cross between Superman and Spock, and Cheon Song Yi, a famous celebrity. Heat level: sweet. You can stream this show for free (with ads) at DramaFever.

Though the ABC adaptation isn't in the can just yet, I'd still like to have a list of similar SFRs handy for interested readers. Ideally, the books will, like MY LOVE FROM ANOTHER STAR, feature an alien hero, a human heroine, and a contemporary Earth setting. But really, any setting will do!
