New Releases in Science Fiction/Fantasy/Paranormal Romance for FEB 16

Veronica has a new title out, but she’s sharing the spotlight with these other works as well.

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 had a new release this week too!

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 98+ titles featured this week):

RENNYR (BADARI GLADIATORS SERIES BOOK 2) by Veronica Scott

Rennyr was a genetically engineered senior soldier in his Badari Warrior pack until one day he woke up on a strange planet naked, disoriented and about to be sold into the gladiator arena for the rest of his life. Unscrupulous guards faked his death in the lab where he was created and sold him into slavery in the galaxy’s hinterlands. Kill or be killed is the rule in his new life and a Badari never gives up. He’ll fight to stay alive until the Badari goddess sees fit to decree his death and release him from the wretched existence.

Jaine Mitchel of the Sectors was on her way to an exciting research internship until pirates seized the spaceship on which she was a passenger and took her to feature in a gladiator ‘death match’ in the galactic hinterlands. She has no hope of surviving in the arena until a man she only glimpsed in passing breaks out of his cell and saves her life, declaring her to be his fated mate. Given to Rennyr as his reward for winning the death match, Jaine must share a cell and a bed with the handsome, not human, gladiator and together they have to find a way to survive in this merciless world of violence and death. Their mutual attraction is off the charts. Falling in love is the easy part, finding a way to escape or even to remain together is the challenge. At any time their mutual owner could decide thumbs up or thumbs down on one or both of them, or sell them separately.

Their only hope is a mysterious gladiator master from offworld who may be coming to buy Rennyr. Will he take Jaine as well? Could Rennyr win freedom for them both if he does well enough in the arena? Badari Warriors claim their mates for life and Rennyr has no intention of losing Jaine…RENNYR is an 80K word novel and can be read as a standalone. KYDEN is the first book in the series.

ALIEN’S MOST WANTED: PRISON MATE (FOLSOM PLANET BLUES BOOK 2) by Honey Phillips

When Lori finds herself on a dangerous prison planet, an even more dangerous alien warrior is her only hope for survival… After a bad breakup, Lori is determined to make some changes in her life. Being transported to an alien prison isn’t what she has in mind. When the monstrous warden casually tosses her to one of the massive inmates, her fate is all too clear. She should be terrified. Instead, the big alien warrior arouses an unexpected passion. Unlike his brothers, Altrez hasn’t always been on the right side of the law. But when he discovers that one of them has been wrongfully imprisoned, he is determined to free him. After his first attempt goes horribly wrong, he recklessly decides to have himself incarcerated as well. He didn’t expect a luscious human female to complicate his plans, but that won’t stop him from claiming her. Now all he has to do is find his brother, free them all from the prison, and convince his mate that he’s not really a criminal after all. Simple, right? Although each book in the Folsom Planet series can be read as a standalone romance, there is an underlying story arc that continues throughout the series.
