New Releases in SciFi and Fantasy Romance for Wednesday November 16

fire-moonI have not read most of the new releases listed (although I always end up one-clicking a bunch as I prepare these posts LOL) and as always I recommend sampling before you buy!

It’s a mix of the genres in no particular order. Also the term “new” is generally plus or minus a week or two. And I catch up on ones I missed in recent months.  

(NOTE: If the author provides me with buy links I insert those; otherwise I default to Amazon and iBooks.)

Also, I usually include only the beginning of the book blurb…


Cara, a mountain guide with a hard luck past and John, a doctor running as hard as he can from his own demons, become unlikely allies. Fire raging through the Sierras forces them away from their planned route and makes escape a dicey proposition.

Cara struggles to outwit the inferno before it’s too late. John’s long-denied psychic side escapes its bonds, refusing to be ignored any longer….

alien-generals-babyALIEN GENERAL’S BABY (BRION WARRIORS) by Vi Voxley

As one of the few warriors to ever defeat the Fearless, Brion General Braen is a living legend. Yet when his greatest victory turns to his gravest defeat, the undefeated warrior has to prove himself to the universe… and himself. If matters weren’t complicated enough, his fated, his gesha, appears to him right in the middle of it all. Now, losing is not an option.

Naima is a scientist through and through. She’s seen how love can ruin a life and she wants no part of it. So when she gets pregnant by a man who only deals in absolutes while an ancient unkillable evil wishes to conquer the galaxy, she finds herself between a… well, a monster and a hard general.

With everyone’s lives in her hands, but most of all her own, her child’s and the man’s who she can’t make up her mind about, what does the scientist trust? Her heart or her mind?

legend-of-banzaiTHE LEGEND OF BANZAI MAGUIRE PART 1 and THE the-scarlet-empressSCARLET EMPRESS PART 2, both by Susan Grant

VS NOTE: From the Whiskey With My Book blog article, cover reveal and interview with Susan on November 12th about these two revised and reissued titles: “The 2176 Freedom Series is a 2-part sci-fi action romance series/serial that includes The Legend of Banzai Maguire (Part 1)and The Scarlet Empress (Part 2) at approximately 75,000 words apiece. Originally, the “2176” series consisted of five books written by four different authors following a series bible in a world that I created. The publisher subsequently went out of business and the rights to books 1 and 5 reverted to me. Recently, I took on the huge task of modernizing and rewriting both to stand completely separate from the old series. It was a labor of love that I hope will provide hours of edge-of-the-seat reading pleasure. It also opens up exciting opportunities for more stories in the 2176 Freedom world: Rim Riders, Clones, Warlords, Raft City Pirates, Revolutionaries, and more!”

For more information on the two books, you can read the rest of the excellent article on the WWMB blog or follow the buy links:

LOOK TO THE SUN  by Emmie Mears

look-to-the-sunVS NOTE: I have no idea about the romance element…but the plot sounded kinda cool.

The National People’s Voice speaks for Sanmarian and all of Kael.

For fifteen years, they have ruled Kael in relative peace.

For fifteen years, they have quietly snuffed out dissent wherever they found it.

Rose Abernethy and Beo Mataya are two strangers drawn together by one thing alone: Red Sunrise, a book no-one else seems to have read. A book only two types of people ever ask about — collectors…and the NPV. A book both Rose and Beo feel was written just for them.

As winter falls in Sanmarian’s cobbled streets and the fifteen years of seeming calm seethe into violent protests in the city square, Red Sunrise’s secrets pull Rose and Beo into the twisted mysteries of Sanmarian’s past and into the centre of a forgotten tragedy that inked itself into the city’s very blood.



And last but not least, a note that Lindsay Buroker has two of her Fallen Empire series novels on audiobook now! Here’s her Amazon Author page

And my own Star Cruise: Marooned audiobook is included in this opportunity to win a giveaway:
