New Releases in Science Fiction/Fantasy/Paranormal Romance for DEC 27

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.

I have a new release this week included as well!

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 80+ titles featured this week):

STAR CRUISE GHOST SHIP by Veronica Scott

After losing his Space Navy career due to an unfortunate accident, Theo Knox is looking for any opportunity to distinguish himself as an officer aboard the luxury cruise liner Nebula Zephyr. When they come upon a derelict freighter, he’s happy to lead a small crew to salvage the ship and bring her to port. But once he’s boarded the little ship questions pile up. What happened to the original crew? Why is the lifeboat still docked? Is the ship haunted? What’s in those mysterious crates in the cargo hold? Security Officer Jayna Evans has complicated feelings about Theo so she’s pleased to be assigned to his salvage crew. She hopes they can work out their future while bringing the derelict to port but the uncanny events aboard the abandoned vessel pile up and she can’t trust anyone, not even Theo. Can Theo and Jayna salvage the ship and their relationship? Will anyone survive a cruise on the Ghost Ship? This 38K word Star Cruise novella is the latest installment in the ongoing, connected series. Have you booked your Star Cruise yet? There is a very brief mention of the loss of a previous pregnancy.

ANCHORED TO THE SHARKMAN (INTERSTELLAR PROTECTIONS AGENCY BOOK FOUR) by Jade Waltz

A life for a life. With piercing amber eyes, fins, and sharp teeth, he was both terrifying and beautiful. A sharkman saved me after my ex tried to kill me. Ever since that fateful night, he has haunted my dreams, begging me to aid him. After being hidden for a year while working for my grandfather at his underwater aquatic lab, He has a surprise for me to commemorate my return to the public eye as the heiress to my family’s fortune…A new exotic pet—my rescuer, whom everyone said was a figment of my imagination. Now I’m drawn to the mysterious and captive creature being held in the high-security facility.

As I learn of his horrible treatment, I decide to risk everything to help him escape. We must avoid being apprehended while seeking assistance from others along the way.

Our situation draws us closer together, and I find myself falling in love with this magnificent aquatic male. I must choose between remaining on Earth with a target on my back, under my grandfather’s control…Or leaving with my newfound love to begin a new life full of freedom among the stars.
