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 90+ titles featured this week):
STEELE: BOOK 16 IN THE GALAXY GLADIATOR ALIEN ABDUCTION ROMANCE SERIES by Alana Khan
Zoey – When slavers threw me into the silver gladiator’s cell and ordered me to either breed or die, I was ready to choose death. Except I realized my choice would kill him, too. I’ve grown to love him with all my heart, but the voices of my past hold me back. I must let go of my fear to experience the true depth of our love . . . but at what cost? Steele – I cherish everything about my shy, affectionate female and would gladly give my life for her despite our harsh beginning. No matter how deeply I love her, she still holds back. Our relationship is at a breaking point, but I refuse to let her go. We are at war with her past. I vow we will conquer it together.
FATED BLADES by Ilona Andrews
At first glance, the planet Rada seems like a lush paradise. But the ruling families, all boasting genetically enhanced abilities, are in constant competition for power—and none more so than the Adlers and the Baenas. For generations, the powerful families have pushed and pulled each other in a dance for dominance. Until a catastrophic betrayal from within changes everything. Now, deadly, disciplined, and solitary leaders Ramona Adler and Matias Baena must put aside their enmity and work together in secret to prevent sinister forces from exploiting universe-altering technology. Expecting to suffer through their uneasy alliance, Ramona and Matias instead discover that they understand each other as no one in their families can—and that their combined skills may eclipse the risks of their forbidden alliance. As the two warriors risk their lives to save their families, they must decide whether to resist or embrace the passion simmering between them. For now, the dance between their families continues—but just one misstep could spell the end of them both.
