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 two books (jump to the blog to see the approximately 95+ titles featured this week):
DARK PRINCE’S PRIZE (CURIZAN WARRIOR BOOK 2) by S E Smith

Adalard and Samara discover that time may change them, but not their enemies.

NANCY AND THE NAGA (ALIEN ABDUCTION BOOK 14) by Honey Phillips
VS Note: Always happy to see a new book from her!
Can an alien prince in exile protect an escaped slave who won’t surrender?A year as a slave in an alien mine is enough to destroy any woman, but Nancy refuses to give up hope. When she sees a chance to escape, she takes it. Her freedom is worth almost any price, but she didn’t anticipate how hard she would have to struggle to survive. When a strange new alien discovers her, she fears the worst. He’s part man, part snake, and all dangerous – but he makes her feel safe for the first time since she was taken.
Banished from his home planet, former prince Kaiyo has found a place for himself in the dangerous underworld of Kalima. For the right fee, he’ll solve any problem – quickly, efficiently, and with no questions asked. The only problems he can’t fix are his own. When an uncharacteristically altruistic action leads to the discovery of a fierce, frightened woman, his long-forgotten instincts demand that he protect her – whether she wants him to or not. And the more time he spends with the tasty human, the more he realizes he never wants to let her go. But Kaiyo’s past is about to catch up with him. He has no intention of releasing his claim on Nancy – but will she be able to handle all of his secrets? And will his people ever accept a human?
