I'll take a look at the Liaden series. Thanks...
The amount of romance in the Liaden books varies--I'd say that _Local Custom_ is probably the most romance-like of them all, in fact I would call it a romance in space. The _Agent of Change_ and _Crystal Soldier_ sequences incorporate a romantic plotline but I wouldn't call any of it romance; there is even less romance in the Theo Waitley books. The rest seem somewhere in between.
