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 88+ titles featured this week):
SARA AND THE SPYMASTER (ALIEN ABDUCTION BOOK 19) by Honey Phillips
Can a passionate woman awaken a frozen warrior? Sara’s life is turned upside down when she is kidnapped by brutal aliens. Even after she’s rescued by an Imperial ship, she can’t return to Earth. The only person who seems concerned about her future is the icy alien warrior who interrogates her. He’s rigid, arrogant, and frighteningly intelligent, but she discovers a hidden layer of passion beneath that frozen exterior – one she longs to explore. As Senior Advisor to the Kaisarian Emperor, it’s Tanaca’s job to know everything about everyone – evaluating their goals and motives with cool, untainted logic. But the vibrant human female they rescue from an illegal slave ring defies his usual approach – she’s smart, hot-tempered, and passionate enough to awaken feelings he has long since put aside. The logical solution is to retrieve any useful information from her, and then send her somewhere where she’ll be safe, but for the first time in his life, logic fails him. He wants her to stay with him. Forever. But can he allow himself to be driven by something as untrustworthy as emotion?
TIN SOLDIER (SILVER CYBORG BOOK THREE) by Ava Cuvay
The Army shuffled Staff Sergeant Gage Austin off to a menial desk job at the Pentagon as hush money… as if he’d admit to anyone he’s a cyborg. Society abhors cyborgs, so Gage keeps to himself and suffers the daily humiliation of an extensive security scan with stoic fortitude. He’s a soldier down to his core processor and would willingly give his all—red blood and blue lubricant—for the land he loves. As such, he accepts the task to locate and safely retrieve missing Pentagon assistant Audra Muir. Yet as sparks sizzle between them, Gage questions whether he’s delivering her to salvation… or doom. Audra Muir has spent years pilfering secrets about corrupt government oversight of the cybernetics industry under the guise of her job at the Pentagon. As she leaves for breast cancer treatment, she happens upon earth-shattering intel. Determined to hand this information over to the people who will wage that particular war, she battles her own personal recovery and rages against a society that can make a cyborg, but can’t save women from breast cancer. Yet when Gage Austin kisses her, that anger dissipates, replaced by a passion that just might deliver her flagging faith in humanity… and herself. Gage and Audra find peace from their own inner demons within the heat of each other’s arms. But defeating the evil that is ruining the cybernetics industry is a far bigger enemy, and requires the force of a secret band of rebels and their hidden cyborg army.
