New Releases in Science Fiction/Fantasy/Paranormal Romance for MAY 17

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 135+ titles featured this week):


VS note: Always fun to have a new one from PBJ!

How far will he go to save the one he loves? Mic, a cyborg with exceptional abilities, has spent far too long planet-side. Restless, he escapes into space aboard his newfound ship… and stumbles upon a dangerous threat that will change his life forever. Remi has followed in her grandmother’s footsteps. A brilliant and determined explorer, she has always dreamed of learning if there is life beyond her solar system. Her work as a crew member on a space station finally gives her the chance to explore the unknown… and search for answers about her grandmother’s lost spaceship. Mic’s appearance shakes Remi’s world. Not only is an alien cyborg flying her grandmother’s ship, he also delivers devastating news. Remi knows if she is to discover the truth, she must learn to trust Mic and join forces with him to stop the threat to her world and outsmart an enemy who will stop at nothing to destroy her people. Navigating the dangerous landscape of space, Mic and Remi’s feelings for each other grow even as the danger around them threatens to destroy their dreams. Will their love be strong enough to survive the challenges that lie ahead, or will they fall victim to the enemy’s wrath?


I’m zipping across the ocean on an outer space jet ski above the mythical Lost City of Antheum when a freakish storm gathers so fast I can’t make it to shore. I’m knocked overboard by ten-foot swells and sucked beneath the waves. Terrified and about to take in my last breath, I’m rescued by an alien merman with brilliant teal eyes and shimmering scales covering his muscular body. Claiming he’s the prince of Antheum, Darthan sweeps me away to an underwater castle where he woos me while swimming through gardens brimming with glowing sea flowers. His seductive kisses and loving words are easy to fall for and lure me closer with each passing moment. I can’t find a single reason to return to the surface. But his mother, the queen of the underwater world, will do anything to control him, and human-Antheun mating is not only forbidden, it’s punishable by death. Dare I risk everything to stay with my alien merman?
