New Releases in Science Fiction/Fantasy/Paranormal Romance for DEC 20

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 73+ titles featured this week):


A match made in Hell…When investigative reporter Malaya Velasco accidentally uncovers the corruption of one of the highest judges of the Obosian justice system, she is framed and condemned to a life sentence on the deadly prison planet Molvi. In her despair, she begs the Prime Mating Agency for an arranged marriage with one of the Wardens of the prison. Her match? A sinfully handsome Obosian Hell Lord with a sharp tongue, intriguing piercings, and icy-blue eyes cold enough to freeze hell over. After recently regaining freedom from enslavement, the last thing Kronos needs is more off-worlder drama, let alone a so-called human soulmate—who happens to be a criminal no less! But justice must be served, and a soul as pure and mesmerizing as Malaya’s must be protected, whatever the cost to himself. With their enemy always two steps ahead, both the life of his mate and the future of his House are on the line. Will Kronos be the protector Malaya so desperately needs while she proves her innocence, or are they both doomed to fail?


Dr. Sadie Tucker has spent her entire life in the pursuit of knowledge. That quest takes her to the wild Martian frontier, where her latest bioengineering project could revolutionize homesteading on the planet. She can’t afford any distractions – even though the big, silent cyborg ranger guarding her reminds her that she is a woman as well as a scientist. When the military sent Z-384 to Mars, he put his troubled past – and his humanity – behind him. He knows that only cold, isolation, and work lie ahead. But the intriguing little scientist he’s assigned to protect suddenly has him longing for a different kind of future. When Sadie and Zeb are trapped in a mysterious underground chamber, any kind of future seems impossible. With some unexpected help from Sadie’s prototype, can the two find a way to escape? And if they do, can they find happiness together?
