SF Signal's Mind Meld Tackles Apocalyptic & Post-Apocalyptic Romance

SF Signal's Mind Meld this week focused on Love in the Time of Apocalypse...:

Love In the midst of apocalypse…whether it be an apocalyptic or post-apocalyptic scenario, or a dystopian one, such as in The Hunger Games, or just amidst things blowing up, etc, our need to find a partner to share the angst is still a strong one. So, we asked our panel…

Q: What are a few of your favorite fictional couples that fell in love in an extreme situation? Why do you think this type of story is so popular?
It's a topic that fits right in with science fiction romance so I wanted to make sure you knew about it. The discussion includes a few authors of SFR such as Jessa Slade, Joss Ware, and Delilah S. Dawson.
The last post-apocalyptic sci-fi romance I read was Ella Drake's DESERT BLADE. What about you? What appeals to you about these stories? Is there a certain kind you'd like to read more of?

Joyfully yours,
