Alien romance novel?

I've been trying to find a GOOD alien/human romance novel. All the ones I've found sound really cheesy. I guess I'm looking for something that's written smaller amount like an actual ROMANCE novel (like... danielle steel or nicholas sparks - not looking for that). I'm interested in something where on earth aliens come to earth as the "bad guys" to entrap/enslave/experiment/etc. on us humans, but one alien winds up falling surrounded by love with a human. Do any books like this exist that aren't really cheesy? Also, I'm 25 and prefer a bit more mature, non-teen reading.

Any assistance?

Um. The Host by Stephenie Meyer? I don't know if it's fit for an adult.. but that's kind of the with the sole purpose book I read that has aliens. It's not really cheesy.. and there's plenty of.. well, developments on the alien slowly being standard into the human society. There are action scenes too, of course. So yeah, I intuitively loved it. :)
good luck with that. Aliens and humans can't interbreed.

Try playing Mass Effect.
I always found "The Left Hand of Darkness" by Ursula K. LeGuin to be romantic. The human is an off-world alien on a planet of sexually ambivalent inhabitants. I'm sure you'll love it. It won several awards in the late 1960's.
It sounds like The Host by Stephenie Meyer would really suit you. you should check your local library and see if they have it. That way if it dosn't game your taste, your not stuck with it. I personally loved it and would throw a gathering if a sequel was announced. Source(s): My bookshelf and personal knowledge on weird/paranormal books.
Xenogenesis by Octavia Butler. Close to your synopsis, but not quite. It's a right book, but an older one.
The only one I can think of is 'Host' by Stephenie Meyer. I really enjoyed it as it be very engaging and thought provoking.
Here is the blurb for the book:

"Our world has be invaded by an unseen enemy. Humans become hosts for these invaders, their minds taken over while their bodies remain intact and continue their lives apparently unchanged. Most of humanity have succumbed.

When Melanie, one of the few remaining "wild" humans, is captured, she is certain it is her end. Wanderer, the invading "soul" who have been given Melanie's body, was warned nearly the challenges of living inside a human: the overwhelming emotions, the glut of senses, the too-vivid memories. But there be one difficulty Wanderer didn't expect: the former tenant of her body refusing to relinquish possession of her mind.

When outside forces make Wanderer and Melanie unwilling allies, they set off on a unsafe and uncertain search for the man they both love.

One of the most compelling writers of our time, Stephenie Meyer brings us a riveting and unforgettable new-fangled about the persistence of love and the very essence of what it resources to be human."

So it is essentially a 'Love story' because 'Wanderer' actually also falls in love with Melanie's partner and turns against her own helpful to help them because she grows to love humans so much. But, it is not at all corny or cheesy. These are some suprisingly intense moments and action scene while also being sensitive and perceptive to the emotions of love.

I am 18 and loved but my mother and aunt also loved the book. It written much better than Stephanie's 'Twilight series" but still generate much emotion in the reader.
It is "unputdownable" as they say :)

Hope this help! Source(s): Myself and my mother :)

The Host by Stephenie Meyer is really moderately good.

Synopsis
Melanie Stryder refuses to fade away.

Our world have been invaded by an unseen enemy. Humans become hosts for these invaders, their minds taken over while their bodies remain intact and continue their lives apparently untouched. Most of humanity has succumbed.

When Melanie, one of the few remaining "wild" humans is captured, she is certain it is her failure. Wanderer, the invading "soul" who has been given Melanie's body, was warn about the challenges of living inside a human: the overwhelming emotions, the glut of senses, the too vivid memories. But in that was one difficulty Wanderer didn't expect: the former tenant of her body refusing to relinquish possession of her mind.

Wanderer probes Melanie's thoughts, hoping to discover the whereabouts of the remaining human resistance. Instead, Melanie fills Wanderer's mind next to visions of the man Melanie loves—Jared, a human who still lives in hiding. Unable to separate herself from her body's desires, Wanderer begins to crave for a man she has been tasked with exposing. When outside forces gross Wanderer and Melanie unwilling allies, they set off on a dangerous and uncertain turn out for the man they both love.
Yes, The Host would be a good one! It was written as Meyer's first adult original.

Gena Showalter has a series of alien huntress romance novels and if memory serves the premise is quite close to what you've mentioned. The first book of the series is "Awaken Me Darkly" and I think the series is ongoing. If you like those she also wrote two adult friendly, childish adult novels that take place surrounded by the same universe called "Red Handed" and "Blacklisted".

Susan Grant has a cute alien romance series. "Your Planet or Mine?" is the first book.

I own a book in my tbr pile that I'm pretty sure also deals with an alien romance, although it is not a romance fresh, it is "Lightning" by Dean Koontz.

Hope that helps!
