This is not your typical romance. In fact, it has a lot going for those that aren't too fond of romance.

So well done on looking for something different, though I suspect it is a back-door way of getting something Sci-Fi selected .

I too had trouble geting into Tender is the Night.

The Vorkosigan Saga (Shards of Honor is the 1st book in the series) comes highly recommended by many. It has been on my TBR for quite a while, and this would be as good an escuse as any to get started on it.
