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 80+ titles featured this week):
WED TO THE ALIEN ROGUE (ACCIDENTAL ALIEN BRIDES BOOK EIGHT) by January Bell
Sure, he’s my husband— but we’re only friends. The minute our commanding officers assign us to track down the Roth and missing human women, I know it’s a setup. Just my huge husband, Aeroz, and me, together, in a small space ship for however long it takes? Yeah. It’s definitely a set up. But Aeroz is an absolute gentleman —er, gentlealien— and not only do we get along great, but we’re also a good team. He’s a great sparring partner, he’s charming and funny, and I love beating him at whatever Earth or Suevan game we play before we go to our respective beds at night. Everything changes, though, when we have to pretend to be on a lover’s vacation to blend in on a space station in our hunt for the Roth. The tension heats up until I realize maybe… just maybe, Aeroz might be more than a friend. Much more. We have a job to do, though, and it’s dangerous. The Roth are headed to Earth again, and we are the ones closest enough to stop them from mounting another devastating invasion. We don’t have time to be distracted by love. Or is love exactly what we need to save the day?

So to recount..Get married Bang Return to our ship – bringing support from the Neldre if I have anything to say about it.
