If You Like Suzanne Brockmann’s BORN TO DARKNESS…

If you enjoyed BORN TO DARKNESS, Suzanne Brockmann’s new science fiction romance, then I invite you to check out a sampling of similar adventure tales from the amazing authors listed below.

Here’s how I compiled the list: Based on my reading of the first third of BORN TO DARKNESS (because that’s all it took!), I made a mental list of elements in that story that can be found in other science fiction romances. Next, I tagged each element and paired them with the appropriate books to provide you with the best match possible.

The list is in a random order. I embedded buy links in each title, but of course you may want to shop around.

And away we go!

Multiple romances + action-adventure SF = Linnea Sinclair’s GAMES OF COMMAND and Susan Grant’s MOONSTRUCK

Navy SEAL type team + X-MEN + psychic sex = Corrina Lawson’s PHOENIX RISING

Superhuman SF + criminal organizations + near-future thriller + suspense = Catherine Asaro’s SUNRISE ALLEY (also free at the Baen Free Library)

Near-future setting + suspense + m/m romance = Ann Somerville’s SOMATESTHESIA

Dystopian future + suspense + paranormal elements = Claire Delacroix’s FALLEN

Biopunk elements + futuristic medical technology + kidnapping + suspense = Sara Creasy’s SONG OF SCARABAEUS and Ella Drake’s BRAIDED SILK

Urban fantasy + superhuman SF + the Justice League + ensemble cast = Sheryl Nantus’ BLAZE OF GLORY

Near-future setting + combat scenes + Alpha hero + kick-butt heroine + hot sex = Nathalie Gray’s AGENT PROVOCATEUR
