Why Are Sci-Fi Romance Books So Popular?
Out of all the genres, Sci-Fi is actually one of the best genres to explore love. Sci-fi elements make a romantic story more fascinating and romantic elements give sci-fi characters more depth.
Who doesn’t enjoy watching two people fall in love throughout time and space? That’s why romance and science fiction go so well together – romance itself is necessary for humanity, and speculating what lies ahead for humanity is the foundation of sci-fi.
