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 two of this week’s most notable new books (jump to the blog to see the approximately 95+ titles featured this week):
HYPERSPEED DREAMS: DARKSTAR MERCENARIES BOOK 5 by Anna Carven
VS Note: I love everything Darkstar so I one clicked this. Her DARK PLANET WARRIORS is one of my all time favorite SFR reads.
Lodan Vorkan has been called many things in his lifetime—perfectionist, control-freak, monster.
As one of the Kordolian Military’s infamous First Division, he’s one of the most feared warriors in the Nine Galaxies. As a pilot, his skill is unmatched. He doesn’t like the unpredictable, and humans are exactly that. One by one, he’s seen his brothers fall to these confounding creatures. Even the most battle-hardened and ruthless of them have succumbed to the Mating Fever. Humans are trouble. Humans bring chaos. Always. When he encounters the strange human called Tasha, all his warning alarms go off. She isn’t anything like the other humans. She’s faster; stronger—artificially so. She has secrets; she tells lies. A trail of blood-scent lingers around her. She is not the kind of human he would imagine as his mate. But Lodan’s control is about to be sorely tested—in more ways than one.
THORRN: STARLIGHT HIGHLANDER MAIL ORDER BRIDES ONE (INTERGALACTIC DATING AGENCY) by Skye MacKinnon
An alien mercenary in Scotland –Thorrn only travelled to Earth to find women compatible with his species, even though he expects to stay alone for the rest of his cursed life. Broken inside and out, he’s sure no female could ever want him. But that all changes when he sets his eyes on a sassy Earth woman with fiery red hair and a temper to match. With his mating instincts running wild, he will have to decide whether to claim her or return her to his planet to be studied by scientists. A human businesswoman in search of love – Jenny has finally managed to leave her abusive boyfriend and is ready to start a new life. Promoting a new dating agency seems like just the project to distract herself with. While meeting an alien who looks like a hot Highlander wasn’t part of her plan, when he offers to protect her from her crazy ex, she’s tempted to take him up on his offer. Besides, she really needs to know what he hides beneath his kilt. But when she finds out that his people intend to study her like a lab rat, can she trust him any more than her ex?
