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):
CONQUEROR (GALACTIC KINGS BOOK 4) by Anna Hackett
After two years of alien captivity, Evie is free, but her captors have changed her. Now struggling to control a terrifying new power, her only hope is one formidable, dangerous alien king. Logistics manager Evie Mason is no longer a prisoner on an alien space station, but she’s far from Earth, suffering nightmares, and fighting to ignore the growing power inside her. She just wants to be normal, but when she comes face to face with the intoxicating ruler of the planet Taln, normal isn’t an option. He speaks to the power inside her, and ignites a fierce desire she’s never felt before. Conqueror Graylan Taln Sarkany is the king of Taln and its people, who can control the geological forces of their planet. He’s dedicated to protecting Talnians from his evil father and uses his immense power to command the rocks, soil, and earthquakes. But Gray must always keep a part of his power leashed. The part that’s too volatile, too enormous, too dangerous. Then one small, tough woman from Earth threatens all his control. As a final, violent showdown with Graylan’s father draws closer, Gray and Evie are swept into a whirlwind of power and passion, their powers connecting them in ways neither of them understand. With Gray’s brothers, their mates, and allies by their side, they will fight, and Gray will unleash everything he has to protect his planet, his people, and Evie.
VIXIN: A SCIFI HOLIDAY TAIL by Tana Stone
VS Note: The first seven books today are from a shared world – here’s part of the ‘series’ blurb: ” the Stranded With an Alien collection, a collaboration of authors telling holiday tales with a science fiction romance twist. Each book is a standalone, containing its own Happily Ever After, and they can be read in any order.”
Noelle is finally leaving her job on the Drexian space station and going home to Scotland for the holidays. Two things she didn’t expect: to be sharing the trip with a hot Neebix named Vixin and for their ship to crash land on a frozen planet. To add to their problems, the natives on the icy alien world believe she’s one of their goddesses. To make things even more complicated, they’re convinced she’s the goddess of the fertility festival they’re celebrating. Frying pan meet fire! To stay alive until they can be rescued, Noelle and Vixin decide to go along with the case of mistaken identity. But can they continue to convince the aliens that Noelle is their goddess until the Drexians find them? More importantly, can they fight off their growing attraction now that they’re forced to share a sumptuous suite worthy of a fertility goddess?
