Here’s 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 three books, including a new release from me (jump to the blog to see the approximately 65 titles featured this week):
JAMOKAN: A BADARI WARRIORS SCIFI ROMANCE NOVEL (SECTORS NEW ALLIES SERIES BOOK 13) by Veronica Scott
Badari Alpha Jamokan and his pack are growing discontented in the sanctuary valley, tired of coming in second place to the pushy new South Seas pack when it comes to assignments and everything else. On top of the discord within his pack, Jamokan is distracted by the search for the right woman to be a proper Alpha’s mate to partner with him in combat and in everyday life. Even the Badari goddess is warning him in visions that he and his pack are on the wrong path for a happy future. In desperation, he receives permission to take his entire pack north to the mountains for a two week hunting expedition, where he hopes to use the time and rugged surroundings to settle the soldiers down and restore order and discipline.
And figure out his own future.
When his men unexpectedly locate a hidden Khagrish lab, he goes to investigate and see if there are humans to be rescued. Little does he suspect he’ll be called upon to break one of the highest commandments of the Badari packs and bring a new disaster to those who look to him for leadership.
Before she became a Khagrish prisoner, Rosemari Parcher was a hydroponics technician on a gritty colony world, who unexpectedly won a planetwide contest. Tapped to receive her heart’s desire and move to a totally different life in the luxurious Inner Sectors, her life had become a happy dream. Kidnapped in space by enemy aliens and given to the Khagrish, she and other humans are the unwilling subjects of a bizarre medical experiment where a quick death seems to be her only hope. Rescued by Jamokan and his pack, she finds herself deeply attracted to the Alpha but the devious Khagrish aren’t through with Rosemari or the experiment.
B CLONES by Laurann Dohner
VS Note: I’m always thrilled to have a new book from Laurann. She’s one of my autobuy authors! So yes, I pre-ordered this.
Big – Gemma is a divorced mother of two adult sons. She also is dying in a hospital after a tragic accident. They’re giving her the good drugs to manage her pain, which is why she’s dreaming about waking in the future with a twenty-year-old body and meeting a hot space pirate. Big claims he’s a clone, and she’s one too. What happens when Gemma’s dream turns out to be reality?
Blade – Hailey’s been kidnapped off her mining colony planet and is trapped on board a luxury space shuttle with the bad men who took her. She manages to lock herself inside the captain’s cabin, hoping to be rescued. But it’s not the authorities who hack the lock. It’s a clone. Blade admits to being a space pirate, but he swears he’s going to keep her safe. He may be attractive…but can a clone also be trustworthy?
BRIDGET’S BANE (ICEHOME BOOK 13) by Ruby Dixon
VS Note: I do love this series! One clicked.
A’tam is the worst. Sure, he’s the prettiest man on the beach, but he’s a terrible listener. I’ve told him a dozen times that we’re not compatible – in SO many ways – and he refuses to take no for an answer. He had his chance with me, and he blew it. But A’tam thinks we should be mates. He thinks he can just woo me enough to change my mind. He thinks that sultry kisses and soft touches are the way to a girl’s heart. He thinks that if he shows me that he can be everything I need, I’ll just fall right back into his arms and forget the past. And….sigh. He might be right. Because I want him again and I really, really shouldn’t.
