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 101+ titles featured this week):
GRUMPY ALIEN SANTA (ASEMSA BOOK 1) by Liz Paffel
He’s a proud, battle-hardened, silver-fox Majaki warrior who can finally retire and take a mate of his own. Darex spent his youth protecting his people by fighting in more wars than he can count. He’s retired to Asemsa, the planet where mature Majaki fighters live the rest of their lives in peace… and claim mates. He can’t claim the red haired Earth scientist unless he agrees to her deal. She needs him to be Santa Claus. He will say, “ho, ho, ho” and hand out gifts to the humans if it makes her happy.
And when it’s comes time to give her a gift, he’ll show her what it means to be really satisfied.
WHEN SHE’S MERRY: A RISDAVERSE NOVELLA by Ruby Dixon
Homesteading on the remote farm planet Risda III can be lonely. So when I notice that my neighbor isn’t doing so well, I ask for help to give her a Christmas celebration to brighten her spirits. Unfortunately, the person helping me is Sinath, the most infuriating male alien ever. He’s got a weird sense of humor. He doesn’t know what a Christmas tree is. He even tried to exterminate my pet rodent. And he keeps staring at my mouth and yet refuses to kiss me. The nerve. But Sinath is easy to be around, corny jokes and all. He knows just what my friend is going through. And he’s a surprisingly good snuggler. This is either going to be a complete disaster…or the merriest holiday ever.
