Futuristic/Sci-Fi Romances

I am a historical junkie at heart but if you hadn't noticed Han Solo is a man that I adore. Recently I began to read some sci-fi romances and I am having trouble finding some that I can really get into. Some bogg the story down with too much detail while others just don't sound plausable. I know it is science fiction/ futuristic/ and fantasy but I have to be able to believe in the characters and the plot. Any suggestions?

Sex with a Robot? And possibly Love?

MSN has an article featured this week that discusses that very issue. It sights several scientists who think this could happen in as little as five years and be acceptable to the general population in 2050. They say that with the help of some psychologists they are confident that they could create a robot that a human could actually fall in love with (I'm not sure I can buy that) and have great sex (people already have several sex toys so this jump isn't that unimaginable).
My arguement is that there is much, much more to Love than just sex.
As for me, I like my men alive, not artificial. Here's the link to the article.

Where does Inspiration come from? How do you get it?

Well my answer is simply life. The good, the bad, the beautiful, the ugly. Anything can inspire, it's all up to you.

So today I posted somethings that I get inspiration from.

Duchamp Nude Descending a Staircase c. 1912

PIETA ~Michelangelo was 24 when he created this piece. (I am not overly religious, but this piece just touches me and always has.)

Aedh wishes for the cloths of Heaven


Had I the heavens' embroidered cloths,
Enwrought with golden and silver light,
The blue and the dim and the dark cloths
Of night and light and the half light,
I would spread the cloths under your feet:
But I, being poor, have only my dreams;
I have spread my dreams under your feet;
Tread softly because you tread on my dreams.

"To My Dear and Loving Husband"
by Anne Bradstreet

If ever two were one, then surely we.
If ever man were loved by wife, then thee;
If ever wife was happy in a man,
Compare with me, ye women, if you can.
I prize thy love more than whole mines of gold
My love is such that rivers cannot quench,
Nor ought but love from thee, give recompense.
Thy love is such I can no way repay,
The heavens reward thee manifold, I pray.
Then while we live, in love let's so persevere
That when we live no more, we may live ever.
What inspires you?

"All women are liars." He spit out in quick retort. The man acted as if women were serpents! Were we to be forever damned by Eve's actions? Where had he learned about women, in a monastery? Trying to show him the logic behind her answers, in frustration Isobel spoke.
"Why would I kiss you if I were betrothed?! Indeed I would not be betrothed to a man I did not at least respect if not love! And if I respected or loved another I could not have kissed you so!" Her breast were heaving while she stood tiptoed leaning into his imposing frame.
Robert's eyes could not help their path. They meandered over he features, coming to rest upon those lush lips. She did not love or respect another man? The words reverberated in his skull. Using her Socratic logic Robert knew exactly what that meant.
Without any further thought Robert did what he had been longing to be from the first instance he saw her. Dipping his head he took her lips forcefully to his own. Savagely claiming them. It was a fierce taking, a branding. Robert wouldn't have been surprised if Isobel tried to run from him now. Her resistance could be of no use, If she ran he would follow. There was no denying her want either.
Her arms slid under his. Isobel grasped the wool of his tunic as if it were her life line, the teether that held her on this earth. This was what she had needed. This is what she had wiaited for. Had been waiting for. Longing for. What they had both sought and craved.
His lips moved possessively over hers. Robert's fingers sought the nape of her neck. They intertwined in the soft curls that lingered on her delicate hot skin. The cool silky weight of her plaits rested against the backs of his knucks creating an alluring contrast.
Robert held her head gently as he took from her mouth. The experience of her lips was more than he had dreamed. Indeed, it was more than he had expected.
It was up to Isobel just how much more.
