Space Opera Romance

Please remember when adding books to this list, we are looking for SPACE OPERA, not general Science Fiction Romance - there is a difference.

Space Opera usually has larger themes going on than the love story. While the love story can be central, there are often explorations of human nature. The hero's journey should be in play, and there are more often than not metaphysical explorations as well. (I.E. what is our place in the universe? existential questions, the force, destiny, etc)

On the flip-side, we are not looking for general or military Space Opera - we are looking for Space Opera books with a central focus on Romance and character development.
