Here is the weekly post from my author blog on the new releases I found to be of interest in my three favorite romance genres (which are also the ones I write in!), and related areas such as time travel, steampunk, paranormal cozy romances and more. I do sometimes cover other releases of note in science fiction and fantasy.
As always, I recommend sampling before you buy! I have not read most of the new releases listed (although I always end up one-clicking a bunch as I prepare these posts). I don’t pick up every single new release each week but try to provide a representative subset and lots of choices.
Here’s a teaser for this week’s first two books (jump to the blog to see the approximately 50-70 titles featured this week):
TANE (HELL SQUAD BOOK 20) by Anna Hackett
VS Note: I have loved this series so hard…this is the last book in the series so it’s a bit bittersweet to me as a reader but I will also read it immediately LOL! I might have to go re-read the entire series…
As the battle against the invading aliens reaches its endgame, a group of bad boy bikers and mercenaries will stand and fight for humanity’s survival… Tane Rahia is good at one thing—fighting. Before the alien invasion, he fought as a mercenary in the worst jungle hellholes. Now, he’s the leader of Squad Three—aka the berserkers—and he’s fighting to protect his brothers, his friends, and the last of humanity’s survivors. It doesn’t matter if he dies, he knows he belongs in the shadows, doing the dirty work and taking dangerous risks so others don’t have to. There is no warm woman, no love, and no redemption for him, and especially no small, sweet alien woman who he struggles to ignore.
Abducted from her homeworld by the Gizzida, Selena endured captivity and torture. Then she found herself on a distant planet called Earth and rescued by tough, heroic humans. She’s recovered, made a new family for herself, and come into a power that she never knew she possessed. She’s determined to experience everything life on vibrant Earth has to offer and to protect her new home. And she discovers that one battle-hardened, intense man is the only one who ignites a passionate desire that leaves her breathless.
The humans have fought hard, but now the Gizzida have created three deadly, humanity-ending bombs. Tane’s not happy that Selena’s help is vital in the fight against the aliens, and nor is he ready to face her stubborn confidence nor the white-hot desire flaring between them. But as they enter their final make or break fight, Tane and Selena know they need to.
SEIZED BY THE ALIEN PIRATE (MATES OF THE KILGARI BOOK 6) by Celia Kyle and Athena Storm
Kintar has had a hard past. I can see it in his eyes. They speak of unbelievable loss and sadness. The life of a soldier.
But his chiseled, muscled, alien body is more than a collection of his past. He towers over me and pushes reality from my view–until there is only him. His deep voice whispering in my ear, soothes me. His eyes roaming my body, lure out my wild side. His strong arms wrapped around me, protect me from the madness of the galaxy. But it’s his heart that gives me hope. His soul that brings me peace. Kintar will fight for me. He’ll die for me. Nothing will stop him from giving his last breath for me. Nothing will stop him from forever freeing me from my enemies.
Because he is my mate he will do these things. Because he is my love. My heart. My forever.
