New Releases in Science Fiction/Fantasy/Paranormal Romance for MAY 11

We think someone ought to do a study of the skin tones chosen by authors for their aliens. Is there some particular reason why green, purple and blue are prominently featured, or is it just circumstantial?

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 101+ titles featured this week):

RAVAGED WORLD: SHATTERED GALAXIES by Ava Ross

She came to me when I needed her most, and it will kill me to let her go. When my ship crashed on a long-abandoned planet, I barely survived. Before the ship’s computer failed, it rebuilt me, crafting my shattered body into a half-cyborg being. I’m a monster who’s barely living. With no way of escaping this ravaged world, I’ve resigned myself to spending my days fighting off the feral inhabitants until I lose my final battle. Until she appears…She brings sweetness and light into my dark, cold world. Her determination to return to her home keeps her going, and I’ll do all I can to make her dream come true. Then I discover there might be a way, but it means I’ll lose her forever. The fates delivered her to me. Can I go back to being alone?

A GIFT FOR THE ALIEN WARRIOR (TREASURED BY THE ALIEN BOOK 7) by Honey Phillips

VS: Always happy to report a new one from Honey!

Can a forgotten alien warrior protect his newfound family from an unknown enemy? Taranov spent years doing his duty before finally escaping his dying planet. His new life as a trader is calm, peaceful… and empty. Then he stumbles upon an abandoned ship, a helpless infant, and a beautiful female who can’t even remember her name. His instincts demand that he protect them, but his heart wants so much more. Waking up on an alien ship is frightening enough, but her amnesia makes it even more terrifying. She doesn’t know if the massive green warrior is as kind as he seems to be, or if the child who feels like hers truly belongs to her. Just as she begins to feel at home with Taranov and his ragtag crew, Wendy’s memory starts to return. She realizes that her very presence may endanger the baby and the male she is growing to love. What if the only way to protect them is to leave them? Can Taranov keep his new family – and himself – safe from the horrors of the past and the dangers of the present?
