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 95+ titles featured this week):
INTREPID ENCOUNTER (CYBORG UNITY BOOK FIVE) by Cynthia Sax
Cyborg vs. Valkyrie – Blood will be spilled and hearts will be captured. Intrepid and his crew on the Dauntless guard the border to the cyborg sector. The D Model cyborg captain has dedicated his lifespan to protecting their homeland. He’ll do anything to secure the space and keep his brethren safe. That includes confronting a Valkyrie intent on vengeance. The female warrior is beautiful, brave, strong…and Intrepid’s genetic match. She’s the one being he is fated to claim. Her voice causes his circuits to hum. Her touch produces a passion he struggles to control. But if he has to stop her…permanently…to protect his kind, he will make that sacrifice. Olrun has been tracking the whereabouts of a one-of-a-kind object. The stolen item is critical to the safety of her Valkyrie sisters, and she’ll do anything to retrieve it. That includes waging war on a tall, broad-shouldered cyborg warrior sporting brilliant-blue eyes and grimly set lips. The male might…just might…have battle skills matching her own. And that excites the immortal fighter. She craves his rough handling, his punishing embrace, his stern words. But Olrun’s desire for the cyborg won’t distract her from achieving her goal. She will shield her fellow Valkyries from danger, even if that means ending Intrepid’s lifespan in the process.
SANCTUARY FOR THE ALIEN WARRIOR (TREASURED BY THE ALIEN BOOK 10) by Honey Phillips
Can an alien warrior and an orphaned infant provide a new beginning for a lonely woman? Tired of relentless hours, arrogant clients, and endless demands, Barbara is ready to abandon her career as a corporate attorney for a simpler life. She doesn’t expect that life to involve an alien abduction, an abandoned baby, and an all-too-intriguing alien warrior with a very friendly tail. Pralec, a Cire warrior from a dying planet, takes a mercenary position with an ambitious merchant house. Disgusted by their greed and cruelty, he does the unthinkable and forsakes his vow. Seeking refuge on a backwater planet, his solitude is disrupted by a fiery human woman and a ragtag group of castaways who desperately need his help. As Pralec aids Barbara and her companions in their quest to return home, he finds himself increasingly enthralled by the fascinating female and her adopted child. He doesn’t want to let them go, but assisting them raises the specters of his past. Can Barbara aid Pralec in confronting the consequences of his previous life? And is embracing a new life with a baby and an alien warrior really the change she wants?
