Wait, so alien romance books are a thing?

That was my exact thought once I saw how extremely popular this category of romance books had become.

I mean, I knew that science fiction was a popular reading genre, but alien romance? Yes!

I shouldn’t have been surprised though given the popularity of paranormal romance and romance books with werewolves, vampires, witches, shapeshifters, and other creatures.

Romance readers around the world have a thing for creatures out of this world and boy do they love reading about them, especially if they are blue!

So of course I had to jump on the bandwagon and see what the fuss was all about with alien romance books, and I have to say that I’m glad I did!

And what better way to test the waters than to start with THE alien romance book- Ice Planet Barbarians by Ruby Dixon?!

What’s the Fuss About Alien Romance Books?

Why limit your happily-ever-afters to mere mortals on earth when you can expand your horizons and find love with an alien?

I mean, if men of earth are not stepping up to the plate, why not see what alien romance books have to offer?

Then again, I should warn you that many alien romance books focus on alien abduction so the women of Earth are not necessarily willing participants at first.

But for some reason, the alien warriors or alien mates that abduct them or save them sure do turn out to be their one and only – blue, scales, horns and all.

If you’re curious to discover what all the hub-bub is about with alien romance books, then I have a few suggestions for you.

This book list gives you quite a few alien romance novels for you to pick up to test the waters.

Will you become a fan? Will you fall for an alien from out of this world?

You be the judge and then let me know in the comments below which alien I should start dreaming about!

Alien Romance Books That Are Out of This World

Ice Planet Barbarians by Ruby Dixon is one of the popular alien romance books for readers. Check out the entire book list of alien romance books recommended by romance book blogger, She Reads Romance Books.

Ice Planet Barbarians
by Ruby Dixon

You’d think being abducted by aliens would be the worst thing that could happen to me. And you’d be wrong.

Because now, the aliens are having ship trouble, and they’ve left their cargo of human women – including me – on an ice planet.

And the only native inhabitant I’ve met? He’s big, horned, blue, and really, really has a thing for me.

I have no idea where or when the alien romance craze began, but I do know that this is one of the most popular titles in this romance category.

If you’re up for a sassy heroine, a fated mates tale, and of course a big blue alien, then give this one a go that kicks off a huge series of alien romances! My Review.

Obsidian by Jennifer L. Armentrout is one of the popular alien romance books for readers. Check out the entire book list of alien romance books recommended by romance book blogger, She Reads Romance Books.

Obsidian
by Jennifer L. Armentrout

When we moved to West Virginia right before my senior year, I was instantly struck by my hot neighbor, with his looming height and eerie green eyes. And then he opened his mouth.

Daemon is infuriating. We do not get along, but when a stranger attacks me and Daemon literally freezes time with a wave of his hand, well, something unexpected happens.

The hot alien living next door marks me.

Now the only way I’m getting out of this is by sticking close to Daemon until my alien mojo fades.

This may be the only alien romance book on the list where the alien is actually disguised as a human.

So if you’re looking for an alien romance that occurs on another planet, in another world, or with someone that definitely does not look human, this isn’t it.

But if you love young adult, enemies to lovers books or are just a fan of Jennifer L. Armentrout, check this one out.

Radiance is one of the popular alien romance books for readers. Check out the entire book list of alien romance books recommended by romance book blogger, She Reads Romance Books.

Radiance
by Grace Draven

Brishen Khaskem, prince of the Kai, has been the heir to spare in his Kai kingdom, which is why his only worth is to wed a human to secure a political alliance between kingdoms.

Ildiko is the niece to the Gauri king and has resigned herself to her fate of marrying the young Kai prince.

Both Brishen and Ildiko see the other just as ugly in appearance as they expected on their wedding day and yet through a new-found friendship, they come to find each other more beautiful than either could imagine.

I absolutely adored this alien romance which is really a romance about two unique characters from different kingdoms. (No humans in this one!).

I was struck by them from their first meeting and how both looked beyond appearances to find true love within.

Yes, it’s an alien romance but really just a wonderful marriage of convenience story with the best slow burn. My Review.

Choosing Theo is one of the popular alien romance books for readers. Check out the entire book list of alien romance books recommended by romance book blogger, She Reads Romance Books.

Choosing Theo
by Victoria Aveline

Being kidnapped by aliens is only the start of Jade’s problems.

Thankfully, her alien rescuers are willing to protect her, but she has to stay on their planet for one year and respect the rules of their culture–including choosing a husband.

Jade refuses at first but decides to play along until she can find a way back to Earth.

Theo, a scarred mercenary who prefers a life of solitude, is stunned when Jade selects him as her husband.

After years of being passed over, he never imagined he would be chosen and neither did anyone else.

As Jade and Theo are forced to spend time together, their chemistry becomes undeniable.

But neither can afford to bring love into the equation, especially since Jade seems determined to go home.

I’m already hooked by this alien romance book because I want to see Theo finally find his happy ending when he’s been passed over time and time again.

I’m also intrigued to see how he plans to “break her cover” thinking the only reason she picked him is because she’s a spy.

Ultimately I can’t wait to decide for myself if Jade should stay or return to Earth.

Abducted is one of the popular alien romance books for readers. Check out the entire book list of alien romance books recommended by romance book blogger, She Reads Romance Books.

Abducted
by Evangeline Anderson

My name is Zoe McKinley. I have a boring life and an awful job, and then I get abducted by Aliens.

Being dragged through a mirror onto an extraterrestrial ship was bad. Finding out I had been sold to a huge alien male who looks like the Devil was worse.

But learning he wanted to trade me to an intergalactic petting zoo was the worst of all!

Now I’m whizzing through the galaxy with a robot butler, a trio of nib-nibs and one huge, muscular, and very grumpy alien who I think I’m falling for him.


This alien romance book is book one in The Alien Mate Index in which Earth is being invaded by alien warriors because of a hole in our ozone layer.

I’ll be honest, I don’t ever want to come in contact with The Alien Mate Index, an agency that abducts Earth brides for alien males. No thanks.

But I will read about how Zoe plans to either outsmart or fall for her red alien mate.

Captive of the Horde King is one of the popular alien romance books for readers. Check out the entire book list of alien romance books recommended by romance book blogger, She Reads Romance Books.

Captive of the Horde King
by Zoey Draven

On the unforgiving planet of Dakkar, I did what all the humans in our village did: kept my head down and worked to provide for my family.

Unfortunately, the same couldn’t be said for my brother.  

One careless mistake brings a horde of the nomadic, barbarian Dakkari straight to our doorstep, led by their powerful horde king—a cold, ruthless, battle-scarred warrior demanding retribution.

In order to save my brother’s life, I do the unthinkable. I sell myself to the horde king as his war prize.

I agree to warm his furs, to travel with his horde across the wild lands of Dakkar, and to never see my family again.

But as I struggle with my new reality, I discover that the surly, mysterious, dominant horde king never intended for me to be his concubine.

He wants me as his queen.

This alien romance book is the first in the Horde Kings of Dakkar series so get ready to sink into more than one out of this world romance.

I love the premise of this alien romance where humans are living on an alien planet. It’s also a great enemies to lovers story which I can’t get enough of! Definitely check it out.

Taken by the Alien Warrior is one of the popular alien romance books for readers. Check out the entire book list of alien romance books recommended by romance book blogger, She Reads Romance Books.

Taken by the Alien Warrior
by Hope Heart

The aliens who abducted me made a mistake.

The women who are being held captive with me are in high demand and they all look like models. Me? I’m 5’2 shy, curvy, and a kindergarten teacher.

If that’s not bad enough, our ship has crashed and half of the women are missing. Did I mention the locals want to eat us? Insert the tall, sexy warrior aliens, who saved us.

Terex is rough, fierce, and bossy, and doesn’t seem to understand that I can’t stay and be his snuggle bunny.

I’m not quite sure why he isn’t chasing after one of the other women when every man I’ve ever known has overlooked me.

Now, I’ve just got to convince him to help me find the other women and get back to Earth.


Supposedly if you like hot, dominant aliens, strong heroines, and steamy romance, you’ll love this sci-fi, alien romance series so sign me up.

If you’re just stepping your toes into alien romance books, this one may be a good choice since the aliens look like humans with muscle who are descended from dragons. I could get into that!

Accidental Abduction is one of the popular alien romance books for readers. Check out the entire book list of alien romance books recommended by romance book blogger, She Reads Romance Books.

Accidental Abduction
by Eve Langlais

It was supposed to be a simple job. Grab some specimens from Earth and sell them on the interstellar black markets, except Tren accidentally abducts a human.

A barbaric female, who doesn’t know how to be quiet and obey.

That will affect her selling price especially since she only possesses two breasts, and a single mouth.

Yet, in spite of her shortcomings there is something about her spitfire nature that intrigues him.

A space pirate doesn’t usually fall in love, but when an enemy decides to take Megan, Tren realizes he will do anything to get her back.

I love that this is an alien romance book where the alien actually wants to get rid of the human he accidentally abducts rather than keep her initially.

While technically a novella, you’ll laugh at the banter and swoon over the purple alien.

The Naked Alien is one of the popular alien romance books for readers. Check out the entire book list of alien romance books recommended by romance book blogger, She Reads Romance Books.

The Naked Alien
by Honey Phillips

Jane has no interest in the great outdoors. She prefers her comfortable bed, her books, and all the conveniences of modern life.

So when she wakes up alone and naked in what appears to be an alien jungle, her only goal is to find her way home.

A massive stranger comes to her rescue. He doesn’t speak her language, but the heat in his eyes doesn’t need translation.

Commander Taraxan wakes up naked and weaponless on an unknown planet.

As he searches for a way to return to his civilization, he discovers a strange, pale female blundering around the jungle.

As an honorable warrior, he has no choice but to protect her – but he doesn’t expect the task to be so rewarding.

This is another alien romance novella so a shorter read if you just want to get a taste of some alien adventure.

I love how communication is an issue for these two since they don’t speak the same language.

They have to fight through their miscommunications to survive the jungle and just maybe fall for one another in the process!

Grim is one of the popular alien romance books for readers. Check out the entire book list of alien romance books recommended by romance book blogger, She Reads Romance Books.

Grim
by M.K. Eidem

The Tornian Empire has been deteriorating ever since the great infection caused the birth of females to become a rarity.

King Grim Vasteri, the strongest and most feared warrior in the Tornian Empire, is sent out to find unprotected females for his kind, knowing no female will ever join with him due to his scarring.

Lisa Miller is a widowed mother of two little girls, Carly and Miki.

When Lisa is discovered ‘unprotected’ at her husband’s grave, she wakes on an alien ship heading for an alien world.

Demanding she be returned to her children, Grim sees his chance to have a female.

He agrees to accept and protect her offspring, if she agrees to Join with him and only him.

Realizing this is the only way she can retrieve her children Lisa agrees and the Tornian Empire changes forever.

Lisa is a momma bear so hear her roar! I love any romance book with a strong heroine, so why not an alien romance book with a momma who will do anything for her girls?

Of course its premise is typical of alien romance where she is abducted and taken to another planet, so you get that too.

The Last Hour of Gann is one of the popular alien romance books for readers. Check out the entire book list of alien romance books recommended by romance book blogger, She Reads Romance Books.

The Last Hour of Gann
by R. Lee Smith

Amber Bierce had nothing left except her sister and two tickets on Earth’s first colony-ship.

She entered her Sleeper with a five-year contract and the promise of a better life, but awakened in wreckage on an unknown world.

For the survivors, there is no rescue, no way home and no hope until they are found by Meoraq—a dangerous warrior on this hostile new world who looks at her with hungry eyes.

Uyane Meoraq is a Sword of Sheul, God’s own instrument of judgment, victor of hundreds of trials, with a conqueror’s rights over all men.

Now, without divine intervention, he will be forced to assume stewardship over House Uyane and lose the life he has always known.

At the legendary temple of Xi’Matezh, Meoraq hopes to find the deliverance he seeks, but the humans he encounters on his pilgrimage may prove too great a test even for him.

This is another of the widely popular alien romance books but be warned that it’s long (over 700 page!) and it’s dark and it’s about a lizardman.

It does have some very explicit triggers so be forewarned there as well.

If you want an alien romance that also delves deeply into religion and the idea of God, then check it out.

Dark Horse is one of the popular alien romance books for readers. Check out the entire book list of alien romance books recommended by romance book blogger, She Reads Romance Books.

Dark Horse
by Michelle Diener

Rose McKenzie may be far from Earth with no way back, but she’s made a powerful ally–a fellow prisoner with whom she’s formed a strong bond.

Sazo’s an artificial intelligence. He’s saved her from captivity and torture, but he’s also put her in the middle of a conflict, leaving Rose with her loyalties divided.

Captain Dav Jallan doesn’t know why he and his crew have stumbled across an almost legendary Class 5 battleship, but he’s not going to complain.

The only problem is, all its crew are gone, all except for one strange, new alien being who calls herself Rose.

The Class 5’s owners, the Tecran, look set to start a war to get it back and Dav suspects Rose isn’t the only alien being who survived what happened.

In this race for the truth, he’s going to have to go against his leaders and trust the dark horse.

This is an alien romance book for fans of sci-fi. I mean, it has artificial intelligence so there’s that and it has really great world-building to take this one up a notch.

It was the winner of a SFR Galaxy Award 2016 and the Prism Award 2016 for Best Futuristic so let those awards speak to this alien romance book as well!

Claimed is one of the popular alien romance books for readers. Check out the entire book list of alien romance books recommended by romance book blogger, She Reads Romance Books.

Claimed
by Evangeline Anderson

The Kindred are huge alien warriors—a race of genetic traders whose population is ninety-five percent male.

After saving Earth from the threat of invasion they demand a reward—the right to find brides among the population.

Baird is a Beast Kindred who is set on claiming his drafted bride—Olivia.

Angry at having her future and her family taken away from her, Liv vows to fight back the only way she can—by resisting Baird during the claiming period so she can return to her life on Earth.

But Baird isn’t going to make it easy for her. Every week he is allowed to touch Liv more and more intimately and according to the contract she signed, she has to let him.

She’s determined to resist him but his touch sets her on fire. And just as she thinks she knows what she wants, a twist of fate changes everything.

So if you’re really not sure if alien romance books are your thing, you might fall into the same camp as Olivia who continually denies that she feels anything for Baird in this romance.

But I love a man…I mean alien…who is up to the challenge to win his mate over. Bring it on!

His to Claim is one of the popular alien romance books for readers. Check out the entire book list of alien romance books recommended by romance book blogger, She Reads Romance Books.

His to Claim
by Taylor Vaughn

Every human girl growing up on New Terrhan knows one thing – that she will be taken by one or several Xalthurian males when she turns twenty-one.

The Xalthurians are rough, domineering, and huge all over. But, this is the deal our leaders struck, so that they would provide our human colony with desperately needed supplies.

If the baby born from our taking is a girl, we will be allowed to keep it. If the baby is a boy, it will be taken away, never to be seen again. 

When they come for my sister’s baby boy, I dare to defy the alien, they call “Tel”. As it turns out, “Tel” means prince.

But rather than destroying me for my insolence, the future overlord vows to return to the planet. When I am twenty-one.

I’m thinking this is an alien romance book that has a bit more to it than just a human and alien falling in love.

The whole premise of what happens if you have a girl versus boy baby sounds very intriguing, and I hope our gal Kira can fight the good fight to protect women and their offspring.

Saving Askara is one of the popular alien romance books for readers. Check out the entire book list of alien romance books recommended by romance book blogger, She Reads Romance Books.

Saving Askara
by J.M. Link

Victoria’s day starts out like any other aboard the transorbital ship, Phoenix. Such is the life of an emergency medicine specialist in the age of “post-discovery”.

Aderus and his kind’s flight for freedom put them in an uncharted system.

When it affords them an unforseen and unprecedented opportunity to take back their world from those who seek to destroy them, however, Aderus begins to wonder if it wasn’t fate.

Earth’s proposal is shocking and uncomfortable for a fierce, independent race that relishes in their solitude. But the more he learns of humans, the more he comes to admire and respect them. One, in particular.

Consider this a slow burn, alien romance book.

Because Victoria is picked to be a liaison between earth and Aderus’ alien race, they are constantly thrown into each other’s paths – enough so that their attraction to each other becomes hard to resist.

I like that both characters initially find each other a bit “odd” given their appearances and personalities which is the perfect setup for a slow burn in my mind!

Chosen is one of the popular alien romance books for readers. Check out the entire book list of alien romance books recommended by romance book blogger, She Reads Romance Books.

Chosen
by Stacy Jones

One minute Lily is trying, and failing, to run her grandmother’s farm—her last remaining connection to her family.

The next, she wakes to find herself in a cold, sterile cage surrounded by monsters, with no memory of how she got there.

Accidentally abducted by alien poachers, she is dreading the worst but is unexpectedly dumped on an alien planet to fend for herself.

Frrar, Tor, and Arruk have been searching endlessly for a mate to belong to, someone to finally accept them, but they are losing hope.

The time of cleansing, when the great waters drown the land, draws near. They are on the verge of abandoning their search and fleeing the forest when they spot a strange, tiny, two-armed female.

They are immediately drawn to her, fascinated by her differences, but they must act fast to save her life, and their own, from the coming flood.

OMG a reverse harem alien romance book! I shouldn’t be surprised that this exists and I’m so on board to check it out.

Not bad for a woman who gets sucked up into an alien ship along with her cows only to end up with not one, not two, but three aliens to call her own. You go girl.

Milk that “in the wrong place at the wrong time” situation for all it’s worth. 😊

Mama and the Alien Warrior is one of the popular alien romance books for readers. Check out the entire book list of alien romance books recommended by romance book blogger, She Reads Romance Books.

Mama and the Alien Warrior
by Honey Phillips and Bex McLynn

Abby Wentworth never regretted abandoning her corporate career to adopt her orphaned niece and run a maternity home.

But she certainly never expected to find herself and her girls abducted by aliens who intend to sell them as breeders.

When they are rescued by a massive alien and his crew, desires she has long suppressed start to surface.

Until his ship intercepts an illegal Vedeckian trader, Captain Hrebec is resigned to spending his life alone.

The Cires lost their females to a plague many years ago. Now for the first time, this luscious human female has him longing for a mate and a family.

But Abby has to get her girls back to Earth, and Hrebec may have one last chance to save his race.

Will their duties force them apart? Or will they finally find a family of their own?

This is another shorter novella that kicks off an entire series of alien romance books.

If you like your science fiction both sweet and steamy with a focus on finding your family, this is the series to check out.

Dark Planet Warriors is one of the popular alien romance books for readers. Check out the entire book list of alien romance books recommended by romance book blogger, She Reads Romance Books.

Dark Planet Warriors
by Anna Carven

Some scary looking aliens have just boarded Fortuna Tau, our little asteroid mining station.

Earth is a total backwater, so aliens rarely bother to come to this corner of the universe which is why it’s strange to see the Kordolians here.

But it looks as if their battle cruiser is broken and they are going to put Fortuna Tau on lockdown until it’s fixed.

When I encounter their General, I find him insufferable and arrogant. So why do I get this weird feeling I get when he’s around?

When it comes to alien romance books, you can take your pick on color, size, and shape but this one comes with huge, silver aliens with pointed ears!

This one is steamy, it’s hot, and the first in an eight-book series.

Stolen By the Alien is one of the popular alien romance books for readers. Check out the entire book list of alien romance books recommended by romance book blogger, She Reads Romance Books.

Stolen by the Alien
by Amanda Milo

I broke the rules and stole an auction item from her buyers. Because somehow, they’d managed to abduct a Gryfala princess.

Though… she doesn’t look, or act, or sound quite like I thought one of her kind would.

I’d be considered lucky indeed if she chose me to guard her. Instead, I want more.

I need her to claim me. Because she doesn’t know it, but now I can’t let her go.

This book sounds so good because I love a story with a case of mistaken identity.

I wouldn’t want to be abducted by aliens, but mistaken for a princess? That can’t be too bad, right?

Plus, who wouldn’t want a gladiator looking after them and wanting them?

If you love alien romance books where a female is abducted but then loved by an alien protector, then add this one to your TBR list.

Corsairs Adiron is one of the popular alien romance books for readers. Check out the entire book list of alien romance books recommended by romance book blogger, She Reads Romance Books.

Corsairs: Adiron
by Ruby Dixon

The three va Sithai brothers — that’s us — cruise the universe looking for abandoned ships, treasure, and other pirate ships to rob.

Right now, we’re on the hunt for the Buoyant Star, an abandoned cruiser rumored to have a massive treasure inside.

The ship’s been found at the edge of an ice field at the far reaches of space.

But the ship’s not all that abandoned. The Star is crewed by a few lonely, attractive human females who are thoroughly grateful at being rescued.

Actually, wait. They’re not grateful at all.

They’ve set us a trap, and their leader, a beautiful human female named Jade, gives me a smile just before she captures me.

It’s official. I’m in love.

OMG I’m already laughing so hard after reading this book blurb and can’t wait to check out this new alien romance book series from Dixon.

If I’m looking for strong, sassy heroines in my alien romance books, I know she’s the author to turn to.

I can’t wait to see what these humans have in store for these brothers!

Draekon Warrior is one of the popular alien romance books for readers. Check out the entire book list of alien romance books recommended by romance book blogger, She Reads Romance Books.

Draeken Warrior
by Lee Savino and Lili Zander

Captured in space. Imprisoned. Sold to the highest bidder. But my biggest problem is this bossy, aggravating, impossible, alien who’s supposed to rescue me.

The bossy alien I kissed.

Kadir is dangerous. I’ve seen him fight, and his body is littered with scars. He’s a soldier. A warrior.

And when he loses control, he turns into a big scary dragon and breathes fire.

Everyone’s terrified of him. I’m not. No, call me the biggest fool in the galaxy, because I’m attracted to the big jerk.


Did someone say dragon shifter, alien romance book? Why yes!

I look forward to the moment Alice discovers Kadir’s secret and want to learn more about his past.

This book follows the common premise that a human female is abducted by aliens, but I’m all in to see when Kadir loses control and the dragon emerges.

I Married a Naga is one of the popular alien romance books for readers. Check out the entire book list of alien romance books recommended by romance book blogger, She Reads Romance Books.

I Married a Naga
by Regine Abel

When Serena comes to Trangor to participate in the First Hunt, the last thing she expects is to find herself forced to marry an Ordosian… or be destroyed.

She knows nothing of his people, nothing of him, except that he’s got fangs, scales, and a crazy long tail.

Serena only has to play the part of being a wife for six months, and then she’ll be free to leave.

But Szaro seems to have other plans. He’s big, intimidating, and definitely not human.

Yet, how can she remain indifferent when he does everything to please her?

You only need to look at this cover to know that you’re in for an alien romance book!

I want to know more about the First Hunt for sure, but I’m really curious about how Serena plans to fake her way through this marriage of convenience.

I mean, if an alien is doing everything to please you, you enjoy it, right?! Game on.
