Book Description

17 Jan 2013 Mammoth Books
Love will find a way - 19 fantastic future-set romances.The good news is, in the future there will be no shortage of romance. On space ships, on newly-colonized planets or on a barely recognizable Earth, life forms, whether human, alien or something in between, will find their way to love. As giant corporations grasp new opportunities for profit and future armies clash, both in deep space and 'dirtside', former romantic partners try to put the past behind them and time-travelling rebels set out to romance the past. These science fiction stories of future love and lust - by Marcella Burnard, Bianca d'Arc, Jess Granger, Linnea Sinclair, C. L. Wilson and many more - are brimming with passion and humour. So, even though in space no one can hear you scream, they might just be able to hear you laugh.

5.0 out of 5 stars Astonishly, ALL good! 5 Mar 2013
By ImReallyAnElf VINE VOICE
Format:Kindle Edition
I bought this compilation of short stories in the hopes of finding at least one new writer whose other books I'd like, and also that there would be some space romances which I've always loved but which I've found really hard to source. I've bought other anthologies which have been good, but this one truly surprised me, because every single story was readable and enjoyable.

They're mostly space stories - YEAH! - and all are very well written. I'm currently chasing up books by eight of the authors even though their stories are written in the third person where I normally much prefer those written in the first person. The authors are good enough for me to feel it's worth the different style.

I highly recommend this book to lovers of space romance, urban fantasy and other light paranormal genres. It's a snip at the price!

By ROROBLU'S MUM TOP 500 REVIEWER VINE VOICE
Format:Paperback
This type of antho can often be a bit hit-and-miss, with successful authors' names being used to sell the book. In this case, I didn't know any of the authors whose names appeared on the cover, but was delighted to find tales by the above authors, whose books I buy, and by old faves like Charlene Teglia, Cathy Clamp, Susan Sizemore and Donna Kaufmann.

The above authors delivered, as did new-to-me author, Linnea Sinclair, in what was possibly the sweetest and cutest tale of the lot. Several tales didn't quite get there, as if the authors had an idea, wanted to flesh it out into a full-length tale, and didn't quite manage it in so short a novella. A couple of tales I did end up skipping, as they were too hard work - but I do think that they had potential for a longer tale.

Overall, not a Keeper, but a decent enough read, if borrowed from a library; at the RRP, it's not worth it.

5.0 out of 5 stars Fabulous! 26 Jan 2013
By C. Shepard - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I bought this book because I love all things written by Linnea Sinclair and this is the first thing Linnea has published in a long time. Of course, she delivered a great story, but what was even better is that all these stories deliver! I love futuristic romance and these stories are going to be lingering in my mind for quite some time. Thank you, authors!

5.0 out of 5 stars What a great group of short stories. 15 Jan 2013
By J. Rahn - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
I really enjoyed this book. Not every story was a five star tale, but they were enjoyable. I particularly loved C.L. Wilson's story, The Noah. These Mammoth books are enjoyable for the person who doesn't have a lot of time to read during the day or perhaps before bedtime. Just a quick read to escape for a bit before turning in.

5.0 out of 5 stars SINCLAIR STILL HAS IT 10 Jan 2013
By Thomas G. Boothe - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
I BOUGHT THIS BOOK BECAUSE IT HAD A SHORT STORY BY LINNEA SINCLAIR, ONE OF MY FAVORITE AUTHORS. UNFORTUNATELY SHE HASN'T WRITTEN ANY NEW BOOKS LATELY SO I WAS HUNGRY FOR ONE OF HER STORIES.
I WAS VERY SATISFIED WITH HER SHORT STORY AND ENJOYED THE OTHER STORIES AS WELL.
THIS WAS A VERY ENJOYABLE BOOK WITH VERY GOOD AUTHORS AND FIRST RATE STORIES. WOULD HIGHLY RECOMMEND THIS BOOK FOR AVID SCI FI FANS.
