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 100+ titles featured this week):
HER ALIEN NEIGHBOR: STRANDED ON EARTH BOOK 1 by Ivy Knox
Hiding his true form while living among humans on Earth is not easy, but for thirteen years, Axil Monroe and his four brothers have done it. That is until an enticing, infuriating female moves in next door. All Vanessa Bradford wants is to become a successful actress, or successful enough to pay the rent on her tiny L.A. apartment. When she receives another rejection, she wonders why she’s still trying, and a call from her sister only makes things worse. Her dear Aunt Franny has passed away, and she has to travel to her humble hometown in New Hampshire––a place she hoped to never see again. Trauma from her past catches up immediately, forcing her to face pain and injustice she has yet to process. When she discovers she has inherited Aunt Franny’s house, and the obnoxiously loud man who lives next door with his brothers, she feels utterly defeated. Now she’s stuck in a place she hates with a house she doesn’t want that is in need of repairs she can’t afford. Then she finds a series of letters Aunt Franny left her, scattered around the property, sending her on a treasure hunt for a pile of cash. The only problem? She needs Axil’s help to solve the riddles that take her to the next clue, and he’s the last person she wants to be around. As Axil and Vanessa spend time together, Vanessa begins to question the direction her life is heading, and what true happiness for her would look like. Will she find everything she’s been missing in the boy next door?
REJECTED BY THE KAGETHI LORD: KAGETHI WARLORD BIRDES byt Starr Huntress and Ava York
Nina – Cinderella, I’m not. I’ve been matched to a Kagathi Lord, but he wants nothing to do with me. Reo is grumpy. Rude. Sometimes a downright jerk. But there are flashes of kindness in his eyes. And when we touch nothing else matters. Reo – My mate. My heart. My blood burns to claim Nina, keep her. But more than the Suhlik threaten the peace here. If the forces ranged against the peace ever learn how much Nina means to me, she’ll be in danger. And I will do anything, everything, to keep her safe. Even from myself.
