Scott | 2 comments I'm looking for the title of a sci-fi romance novel. I know it took place on another planet. I think the hero was some kind of a barbarian and he helped to save the heroine's either kingdom or civilization. I also think it was published in the 80s.

Warrior's Woman or one of the others in the series (not quite as old as the 80s, published in 1990) I haven't read it but it's an older book with a barbarian hero, so worth a mention just in case.
Sharon Green also wrote a bunch of -rather smutty- scifi romances with barbarian type heroes back in the 80s and 90s. The Warrior Within is one but you'll have to take a look through her booklist to see if any others fit better there's quite a few with that sort of setup.

Scott | 2 comments Warrior's woman seems like it. I think the woman was a telepath or something like that. It was definitely in the romance genre with the typical romance kind of cover. I also remember something about a special drink or food that they had.

Here's a short Google Books preview of Warrior's Woman by Johanna Lindsey - Aerulan's suggestion - https://books.google.com/books?id=2YK... There are different cover images.

Should we mark your request as Solved or Possible Solved?
