Readers Highlight Amazing Science Fiction Romance Covers

Readers Highlight Amazing Science Fiction Romance Covers

April showers bring May flowers, or in this case, pretty science fiction romance covers! I asked the readers in the SciFi Romance Group to share cover art that was so memorable to them, the image had stayed in their minds long after they closed the book.
