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 85+ titles featured this week):
ALIEN CORSAIR’S ABDUCTED BRIDE (DRACONIAN WARRIORS BOOK 16) by Miranda Martin
Drakon – I’m an outcast, a scavenger, a lone trader making meager runs between isolated planets on the outer rim. It’s quiet, outside the occasional pirate, and I like it. My desire for fortune, wealth and glory are a far away dream until I stumble upon a beautiful human queen. One look at her and I will move worlds to make her mine. She doesn’t trust me because she’s been hurt and that has left her untrusting of all aliens. I’m intent on earning her trust, but right when I think I’m making progress, we’re attacked by a pirate seeking revenge. Instead, he and his crew take her. I’ll save her even if it means sacrificing my own life. Betsie – First contact with the cat faced aliens went badly. They abducted me and I became an object of their abuses. When I’m ‘rescued’ by a large, scaly green alien with claws, fangs and huge talon tipped wings, I’m not feeling hopeful about trading alien masters. Stranded on an uninhabited planet after his rescue, I’m slowly accepting the fact that he’s different than my former masters. When I’m noticing how insanely handsome the dragon looking alien is, and how hot he looks without a shirt on, all hell breaks loose. I had no idea that we were being hunted or that a group of pirates is intent on getting revenge against Drakon. Or that their plans include selling me back into slavery. When they attack, Drakon and I are forced to work together in order to survive. The pirates have us outgunned at every turn and when they capture me, I’m forced to accept that this time there will be no rescue. My one hope is the Draconian warrior who might or might not be coming.
ARTEK (SEVEN BRIDES FOR SEVEN ALIEN BROTHERS BOOK 1) by Honey Phillips
VS Note: A new series!
Worn down by war and conflict, Commander Artek and his brothers – the soldiers under his command – have chosen to start a new life on a backwater planet. As hard work and peaceful surroundings start to heal old wounds, he realizes that something – or rather someone – is missing from his new life. None of the human females in the small town on the other side of the mountains appeal to him except for the shopkeeper’s daughter. She’s smart, sensible – and disturbingly attractive despite her shapeless clothes and brusque manner. Although Nelly is rapidly turning into the town spinster, she’d rather be alone than married to one of the local bumpkins. But when one of the mysterious aliens who have taken up residence in the mountains behind the town proposes a union, she sees the chance for a new future. He’s big and gruff – but he treats her as if she’s precious. But a whirlwind courtship and a hasty marriage are only the beginning. Can two people who know nothing about each other possibly find happiness together?
