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):
OVERLORD (GALACTIC KINGS BOOK 1) by Anna Hackett
VS Note: So exciting to have a new SFR series from Anna! Autobuy for me!
Pilot Mallory West is having a really bad day. She’s crashed on an alien planet, her ship is in pieces, and her best friend Poppy, the scientist monitoring the experiment, is missing. Dazed and injured, she collapses into the arms of a big, silver-eyed warrior king. But when her rescuer cuffs her to a bed and accuses her of being a spy, Mal knows she has to escape her darkly tempting captor and find her friend.
Overlord Rhain Zhalto Sarkany is in a battle to protect his planet Zhalto and his people from his evil, power-hungry father. He’ll use every one of his deadly Zhalton abilities to win the fight against his father’s lethal warlord and army of vicious creatures. Rhain suspects the tough, intriguing woman he pulls from a starship wreck is a trap, but when Mal escapes, he is compelled to track her down. Fighting their overwhelming attraction, Mal and Rhain join forces to hunt down the warlord and find Poppy. But as Mal’s body reacts to Zhalto’s environment, it awakens dormant powers, and Rhain is the only one who can help her. As the warlord launches a brutal attack, it will take all of Mal and Rhain’s combined powers to save their friends, the planet, and themselves.
SEDUCED BY THE STRYXIAN (STRYXIAN WARRIORS BOOK 3) by Ella Blake
Mazak is a weary cyborg mercenary about to settle his debt to a deadly trade lord and gain his freedom. He is furious when one last job is demanded of him—to deliver a captive human female with an encrypted message inscribed on her arm to a dangerous space station before the message fades from her skin. This should be straightforward, but after so many battles, Mazak’s cyborg systems are malfunctioning, filling his vision with error messages. To make matters worse, Cora lights a fire in both of Mazak’s synthetic hearts—something he did not think possible since becoming part machine.
Cora Fleming curses every choice she made that landed her at the mercy of an alien trade lord. So much for a harmless adventure after a sheltered life. Now she’s been handed off to a gorgeous cyborg who holds his feelings close and his secrets closer. They are in a race against time to win both their freedom, but deciphering the message on her arm changes everything…as does their deepening bond.
