I believe that Silhouette is launching a new line called Luna which is sf-
romance; there's already been a collection of short novels by authors including 
Catherine Asaro and Mercedes Lackey, and I believe both of them have novels 
coming out through Luna fairly soon.  Amazon also has a preorder option for an 
anthology featuring Asaro and Bujold, Jennifer Roberson, and romance authors 
including Jo Beverley and Mary Jo Putney.  It's called _Irresistable Forces_, 
and while I don't think it's associated with the Luna line, it's of similar 

I wonder if this one will succeed!  I wonder if Mercedes Lackey will tone down 
her gay sex and rape for more mainstream romance novels!  Given the review of 
her story in the first anthology I mentioned, it doesn't look like it.
