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 75+ titles featured this week):
ALIEN’S MERCY by Leslie Chase
First, I was abducted by little green men, then abandoned on a prison planet, and finally captured by a band of alien slavers… and the day isn’t even over! FML. One of my alien captors is different, though. He’s a man, yes, but he isn’t green, and he’s anything but little. Huge comes to mind. Breathtakingly big. I shouldn’t trust him. I shouldn’t lust for him. And if he delivers on his promise to send me back to Earth, I don’t know if I can bear losing him.
SILVER SILENCE: WARRIORS OF VALOSE SAGA 6 by Iona Strom
Vallon – War with the gray invaders was imminent, and an even bigger threat loomed beyond the stars. We had obtained more powerful weapons and had a spacecraft at our disposal. For the first time in Valosian history, all three clans had reached a temporary accord to fight as one for the good of our world. Even with all that, it still might not be enough. I worried over the survival of my species, and even more so for the future of the abducted human females—especially one in particular. My Elise—the one who awakened me—had a disability, making her more vulnerable than the others in my dangerous world. It would be a great honor to be her protector as she was my only light in the impending darkness that was to come. I know she feels the yearning of her spirit to join with mine, but she holds herself back, and I was too afraid of her answer to ask why. As I watched her form silent words with elegant hands, a smile glides across my face. I felt like a fool to have not thought of this before, but what my spirit mate referred to as a disability on her world could be the key to winning the war on mine.
Elise – Vallon was in complete possession of my heart. His eyes drank me in as if he couldn’t get enough of the sight of me. There was nothing I wanted more than to bond with him and be his spirit mate, but with my disability, I was a serious liability. I knew he would die trying to protect me, and his world was a most dangerous place. I couldn’t allow him to give his life for mine. Not only that, but he was of another species—one that lives considerably longer than mine. Now that we knew babies were possible on Valose, what if I was taking away his chance of finding a mate in a female closer to his own species?
