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):
WED TO THE ALIEN GLADIATOR (ACCIDENTAL ALIEN BRIDES BOOK 4) by January Bell
Things were improving between us… that is, until he got the bright idea to kidnap me. I never thought I’d be tricked into an arranged marriage with an alien warlord. Still, it’s been easy enough to keep my former gladiator husband at arm’s length. But once my translator starts working, the hulking himbo decides he’s tired of waiting and freaking kidnaps me. I wake in a picturesque seaside village, and the big lug is only too happy to inform me that it’s all part of his plan to give us time to fall in love. Strangely enough, it turns out he was listening when I told him I loved historical mysteries, because he’s brought me to Sueva’s own unsolved mystery: a once thriving town where all occupants vanished without a trace. My overthinker brain is all too easily sucked into the riddle— and maybe even the idea of Alvez. Except… the reason the villagers disappeared? It’s not stuck in the past, and we’re in trouble. If Alvez and I want to escape the same fate, we’ll have to rely on each other… and I’ll have to stop over analyzing my feelings about him.
MALAKAZ (SOCIETY OF SAVAGES BOOK 5) by Hope Hart
I landed on Brexos with fire in my heart and vengeance running through my veins. On that strange planet, I met its unofficial ruler—an alien who infuriated and captivated me in equal measure. Autocrat. Dictator. Control freak. Malakaz. We agreed to ignore this thing between us. Agreed to dismiss our chemistry and focus on all of the reasons we despise each other instead. But then I was taken. And for the first time in his life, Malakaz defied logic, ignored common sense, and came after me himself. I have to escape before Malakaz falls into their trap. And before the Grivath king goes through on his sick threats. Because he won’t kill me slowly. No, if I can’t get out of here my death will be broadcast across this galaxy and used to dissuade anyone fighting back against the Grivath. I’d never let Malakaz know it, but some days, the sound of his low voice in my ear is the only thing keeping me going. Because that future he talks about? I can almost imagine it. Can almost imagine being happy. With him. I just have to make the Grivath pay first.
