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 105+ titles featured this week):
WED TO THE ALIEN ASSASSIN (ACCIDENTAL ALIEN BRIDES BOOK SIX) by January Bell
My husband is the deadliest alien warlord of all, and I hate that about him… until he’s exactly what I need. I’ve dedicated my life to doing as much good as possible. I won’t let my marriage to the big and buff alien assassin, Feruz, wreck my plans. I don’t care if I accidentally I swore to be his mate at what I thought was a welcoming ceremony. My morals are the polar opposite of his, and I want nothing to do with him…. even if my new life on his planet is a bit lonely. When Feruz offers me a way out of our marriage, I take it in a heartbeat. If I go on one date with him to a relaxing resort and still want out of our marriage, he’ll leave me alone. Except, our date quickly goes bad: my husband is the target of ruthless mercenaries who also want to kidnap me. I am determined to abide by my non-violent oaths… an oath Feruz agrees to honor as well, even if it goes against all his training and instincts. I never imagined Feruz would be the sort of male I’d want by my side, but when push comes to shove, he might be a better partner than I could ever imagine.
ALIEN ORCA (ALIEN ABDUCTORS BOOK EIGHT) by Calista Skye
I was abducted by a killer whale, then forced to work as his secretary. Now my weird, grumpy alien boss wants to fake marry me. He’s more man than whale, of course. Huge, hyper muscled and grumpier than a hungry shark, Caladin is the boss from hell. And I let him know exactly what I think about his behavior. Spoiler: That doesn’t make him any less cranky. Fine, he has a magnetic attraction on all females. Sure, I have trouble taking my eyes off him. And okay, I do get butterflies whe n he looks at me with those piercing yellow eyes. But when he wants to fake marry me on his home planet, and parade me in front of his aquatic family as his wife, that’s when I make my escape. Because he may be a killer whale. But I have bigger fish to fry.
