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 90+ titles featured this week):
CRUSH: WIFE-MATE FOR THE ORCS BOOK ONE: INTERGALACTIC DATING AGENCY (BIG SKY ALIEN MAIL ORDER BRIDES BOOK 19) by Elsa Jade
The Omega Reclamation Crew is in trouble. After the loss of their homeworld and generations spent in the cold darkness of space, fewer eggs hatch every year—and now only males. Losing hope, the ORC asteroid mining ship DeepWander has one chance to make a deal at the Luster, an astronomically infamous gathering of salvage and retrieval mercenaries. But the orcs need dates to the big bash…Welcome to the Intergalactic Dating Agency! Crusher Teq was hatched for one task: breaking space rocks. To save the DeepWander, he’ll crush with his four bare hands, if necessary. When the Big Sky IDA sends delicate Earther females, Teq knows he’s too big and rough to take a wife-mate. He vows to keep all his hands to himself—even after one soft, alien kiss threatens to ignite his i’lva: the mystical light of orc legend. With her young son at risk, Adeline Barlow had only one thought: get as far away from their painful past as possible. She just hadn’t realized quite how far that might be. As an alien mail order bride, she might finally find a happy home among the orcs—maybe with the mighty crusher with his big hands, gentle touch, and deep, dark gaze? But weird whispers in the night warn of betrayal, and it seems dating and mating are more explosively dangerous than they ever believed. Now a fortune—along with their future—is slipping through their fingers. The orcs and their wife-mates must hold on tight or they’ll lose the DeepWander and their last chance at a love brighter than the stars.
THE YEARNING (GALAXY ARTIFICIALS BOOK ONE) by Alana Khan
Eve – It’s hard to imagine things could become more desperate than being abducted by aliens, but I’m even more terrified when I wake up to a huge, faceless metallic robot. I never dreamed 420 would crave my body, have the soul of a poet, or would soon own my heart. 420 – I’ve been alone on this barren asteroid for hundreds of years. When Eve crashes here, she’s a gift from the stars. Now I must battle both nature and our enemies to protect the female who is more important to me than life itself.
