Tilly doesn’t believe in aliens. At least, she didn’t, until she gets abducted along with half the animals of her zoo. When you and your rhino are stuck in a cage on a spaceship, it’s hard not to believe. One of them, an elf-eared female, seems ready to help her find a way back to Earth, but is that really what Tilly wants? Bavalla’s messed up big time. She wasn’t supposed to abduct a sentient being, but now that she’s face to face with a female who’s not only intelligent but also very attractive, she has to figure out what to do. Telling the Captain would result in severe punishment, but how do you hide a human who’s very intent on saving not just herself, but all her animals as well?
An alien scientist desperate for answers – Cyle is the only Albyan alive who knows who was responsible for their females succumbing to the Sleep: his father. Ever since he discovered the truth, he’s been trying to find a way to wake the females. He vowed to himself that he’d never accept a mate until he succeeded. But that’s easier said than done when he meets the female of his dreams and his mating instincts kick in. The only way to stop himself from getting distracted is to push her away – but she has no intentions of leaving. A human woman strong enough to match him – Before her accident, Beth had everything she’d ever wanted: a doting husband, the house of her dreams, a promising career. Now she’s a widow scarred inside and out, jobless and on the verge of being kicked out of her home. She only registered at a dating agency because her therapist thought it was a good idea. She didn’t expect to be matched to a kilt-wearing Highlander – especially not an alien. He embodies the chance of a new life, but he doesn’t seem to be interested in her. It’s time to cheat fate and take her life into her own hands. He will become her mate – even if she has to resort to unusual measures.
The good news is that Holly just put her crew back together. The bad news? She’s only seen the tip of the iceberg when it comes to understanding what her enemies are willing to do to take the 6 Moons system. Now the storms gather. Now the gods decide. And now? The faces of Holly’s enemies materialize. As those threatening the balance of the supposedly utopian civilization take form, everything that Holly has built to prepare for whatever lies ahead falls apart. That’s nothing new.

But this time she must accept just how small she really is against the titans hovering at the edge of the tiny universe she never thought she’d have to fight for.
All I’ve wanted since my abduction from Earth’s first long-range space flight is freedom from my alien captives. But when I’m sold off to a Rhonar warrior, I learn I’m not the only one enslaved on this hellish planet, and survival comes at a cost. The commanding alien they call Xelan may be in charge, but his fair dealings—and devilishly sexy charms—give me hope for the future. If I can strike an agreement with the battle-scarred warrior, perhaps together we can change the destiny of those bound in chains. And if I can’t—well, I haven’t backed down from a fight yet. However, as enemies line up to destroy the alien warriors and subjugate the galaxy, I discover that the universe has a sense of humor. Fated mates are real. And Xelan declares me his. How can I attain my freedom if I’m tied to another being? Even if his possessive growls and single-minded attention ignite my desires in ways I’ve only dreamed, I cannot be his. But how long can I fight the pull of a mating bond before I lose my head—and my heart—to the heat burning between us? Only the stars know. Amazon KU

A few generations from now, the coastlines of the continent have been redrawn by floods and tides.

In the region-wide junkyard that Appalachia has become, Coral is a “plucker,” pulling plastic from the rivers and woods.

When I said I wanted an adventure, being dragged to a prison planet by a golden, blue-eyed alien hitman was not what I had in mind. My alien Keeper has killer abs, but it turns out he’s also a killer, period.

He’s a murderous, infuriating, solar powered brute of a creature. Light courses through his veins and death comes at his hands. But he promises to protect me, and to get me home. Can I keep it together and find the courage I need to make it through this? And can I prevent my unwanted attraction to the exiled alien killer from clouding my judgment before it’s too late?

Zoe – I’m terrified just like the others – but I’m not backing down. The Air Force didn’t teach me what to do in case I got snatched by a seven-foot-tall brawny space pirate, but it did teach me how to be a leader. And that’s just what I’m going to be. No way am I allowing this guy Rakes to trade me and the women under my protection for nano weapons. I just wish he’d quit flicking his long, thick tail at me in rage. His dragon looks are scary, but also strangely stunning – a humongous body covered by shimmering orange scales, four golden horns and a tail that makes my body vibrate with each lash.

Rakes – Tiny. Round. Scaleless. I could crush her with one swing of my tail. And yet, she defies me. Claims she’s a captain like me. Demands I return her and others to Earth. Fascinating. According to our scientists, humans are supposed to lack intelligence, just a hair above insects. But this female named Zoë isn’t like any insect I ever met. She’s got the spirit of a warrior and the heart of a fighter. And is also strikingly beautiful. She is meant to become an exhibit in my client’s zoo. But as I stare into her fierce green eyes, I can’t help but wonder –Perhaps Zoëis wild in just the way that I want…

Enzo’s a human sympathizer. There is nothing else he’d rather be doing than fighting the Malviks and freeing the humans from their control. He’s finally on Earth and ready to take down the enemy.

Without Roar – you try pronouncing it, okay? — I’d be dead in that pod. And when he purrs and does that thing with his… I think I’ll keep him. Abducted by space lizards? Check. Experimented on? Check. Rescued by seven feet of hot, alien male? Check! Roar’s a bit shy, furry with claws and a metal arm, and his best friend is a spaceship named Killer. That’s a little scary. Almost as scary as the zombie. And the giant, angry insects. And the hungry shadow monsters. Roar doesn’t want to dishonor me or something like that so we’re keeping things casual. (Sort of. Maybe. Definitely not.) And if I live through this without getting my brain eaten, we might have a chance at something more. Stranger things have happened. Amazon KU
My job had consumed my life. The scientists that came in would get drunk and talk of other worlds and aliens, a nice distraction from my problems. I didn’t believe a word of it, of course. Well, it turns out it was very real. On my way home from work, I was hit by a blinding white light and knocked unconscious. When I woke up, I was surrounded by aliens. Little green men? Not so much. More like bulging gigantic red men, and they did not have my best interests in mind. Before they could take me for themselves, an even larger blue man burst into the room and dispatched the red aliens in the blink of an eye. He towered over me and glared down at me with the intensity of a burning star before releasing my bindings and stealing me away to a hidden area of the ship. Idalas was equally stoic and passionate. It was like a switch inside him would flip from one minute to another. His passion was fiery and unrelenting when he got worked up about something. His muscles would tense up and bulge, his sharp jawline would set tightly, and the look in his eyes was as terrifying as it was irresistible. The longer I’m with him, the more I want him to turn that fire on me. I’ve seen it in his eyes when he looks at me, smoldering embers held at bay by sheer willpower. It was unnerving at first, but the thought of being consumed is starting to feel more and more right. Amazon KU

I’d never felt like I was missing anything in my life, not until my only friend left to start a journey to find out her own history. It had been clear in the ugliest way that I relied on her company too much over the years. I needed to make my own path, create my own story. But then one video call changed my entire life, and I was thrown into a new world where creatures that had only ever been in fiction and movies were now very much real. And one of them was coming after me. A werewolf—Lycan—from myth and lore. He said I was his. He said he was coming for me. So there was only one thing for me to do. Run. Cian said he wouldn’t stop until he found me, until he put his mark on my neck. He said he’d go to the ends of the world to make me his mate in all ways. He’d have one hell of a chase on his hands, because I wasn’t going to make this easy on him. That was my plan until everything changed–and someone else was hunting us. Amazon KU

Now she’s hitched to the crowned prince of the rougarous, who also happens to be the sexiest man/wolf in existence. Sounds great, right? Unfortunately, it’s a marriage of convenience, which royally sucks, because, you know, the whole smokin’ hot thing. She’s also now a stepmother, which might be okay. The jury’s out on that one.

Here’s hoping she can get her witchy act together, kick a little butt, and save herself and few others along the way.

What good is a king who can never let his feral dragon loose, never fly, and never lead his people? He’s better off dead. Angelika Amon is the last unmated phoenix. The problem? She has no powers. Zip. Zilch. Angelika hates being dormant, especially now that her three sisters are blissfully mated to powerful dragon shifter kings and are very much part of the fight to take down the rotting king Pytheios, their parents’ killer. What good is a useless runt of a phoenix in a battle to save the dragon kingdom? Desperate to find some way to help, she offers herself to Airk as a mate — just for political leverage. But a dormant phoenix is no damn use to him just like a dragon who can’t shift is no use to her. Until Pytheios sets his sights on Angelika for himself.

VS Note: From SEPT 21
Evan Luck is a dragon rider who, after years of thinking he’d never bond with another one, now has a dragon again. His empathic connection with the powerful silver dragon Ladon, known in his human form as Lee Caldwell, has made them the most valuable defenders of the city of Forge against monstrous invaders. The fact that they love each other and dote on Lee’s ten-year-old son, Jason? Those are blessings Evan never saw coming. He knows life is good…even as he realizes that the world is becoming more dangerous by the day. With monsters leaving the mountains of the Front Range to roam the plains for food and the influx of refugees to Forge increasing by the day, Evan has his hands more than full defending the city and training new recruits to fight. When Jason, desperate to bond with a dragon of his own but continually refused by the dragons of Forge, begins to lose control of himself, Evan and Lee make plans to do the unthinkable: leave Forge to fend for itself and take their son to Chicago, the nearest human and dragon stronghold to their own city. But Chicago has its own terrors to deal with, and their last hope for Jason’s future might be lost before they can save it. Amazon KU
Centuries ago, a witch laid a curse on a small town that froze its local werewolves in place. They’ve been waiting for one woman to change their fate, and lift the dark magic burden from their pack. Every Halloween has been the same–waiting, watching, failing…and so the wolves of Hollow Rock had accepted their place protecting the town for all of eternity. Callum Ashbrock is alpha of Hollow Rock, and when his sister calls to say the words he’s been waiting for centuries to hear, he can’t believe the time has finally, finally come. He’s found her. Her. The one he’s been missing for all this time, and she’s finally in his town, just in time for Halloween. Stacia Wallace has waited her entire life to celebrate her favorite holiday in the town that parties for a full week around the spookiest time of year. ..(more blurb on ebook seller page…) Amazon KU
I lead a solitary life, one I’ve built over the course of a century. Now I’ve settled into a home, and I’m doing my best to renovate it and live a normal undead life. All that goes down the drain when Everly comes stomping through my front door with a crossbow pointed at my heart. She thinks I’m a killer—that I’ve been draining hooligans and old ladies in town. She’s right: I am a killer, but I’m not the one she’s looking for. I’m drawn to her. So much so that I follow her home and watch her every move. I can’t stop. She’s mine. I knew it the moment I saw her. So did my soul, because my long-dead heart began to beat. Only for her. But she’s not going to trust me easily. After all, my kind killed her parents. The more I get to know her, the more I realize her past is the key to explaining her mysterious blood disorder and her penchant for attracting vampires. But if we don’t solve the local murders, Everly might be the killer’s next victim. Amazon KU
Everything is coming up roses. Way too many roses. Gale has a problem. A really thorny problem. He can’t touch anything made of wood without it bursting into bloom… which is inconvenient, to say the least. Clearly, his unicorn is cranky about something – Gale just wishes he knew what. In the meantime, being cursed with the world’s most annoying green thumb is making it pretty much impossible to continue working as a sous chef. Maybe a relaxing trip into the mountains will be enough to soothe his sullen unicorn. After years of hard work, Sylvie’s dream has finally come true: she’s opened her own bakery in her sleepy little hometown, and her signature dishes are selling like… well, hotcakes. That is, until the flashy new bakery down the road opens up – and they’re not only stealing her customers, but her recipes as well. When the hottest guy she’s ever seen walks through her door, Sylvie knows there’s something special about him… but a gorgeous guy coming in to buy her cakes is hardly going help her save her business. Right? Amazon KU
Lady Clover’s life suddenly takes a turn for the worse when she’s framed for necromancy by Princess Camellia. She and the princess both know she’s not a dark magic user, but little good that does Clover when Camellia disappears. The kingdom is in turmoil over the abduction of their beloved princess, and Clover is determined to find her way into the rescue party—even if Henrik, the most handsome commander in all Caldenbauer and the man of her reoccurring dreams, is in charge. He suspects Clover’s guilty. Clover thinks she should have pushed him into the troll pit when she had the chance. Once again, they’re at odds, but they have no choice but to play nice if they want to find Camellia—especially when they discover their mission will take them into the heart of Ferradelle, the High Vale elves’ territory. They’re going to need a guide. Thankfully, they know an elf who just might help them…for a price. Amazon KU
I’ve never been a fan of murder. The mess, the smell, the whole hiding the body thing after – it always seemed like way too much work. But trust me, when you’re married to Richard Morningstar, that “work” starts to feel an awful lot like “play”. The man is a snake and king of the fairies. A barbarian. A war monger. A sex god. Uh, I mean a…an ex pod? Doesn’t matter. The point is, it’s either him or me. Because one of us is going to die, and at the moment, it’s my execution scheduled in three weeks. So I just have to figure out a way to kiss him – kill him – before then, take his throne, and turn his whole nightmarish kingdom upside down. Easy right? Maybe – if he wasn’t my lifemate. And if my panties didn’t drop every time he snapped his stupid fingers.
Fate is cruel, but I’m done playing her game. It’s time for me to finally gain control of my own life and make my own choices. I’m done playing by other people’s rules. It’s time for me to rise. Amazon KU
It was supposed to be a fresh start. A completely blank slate in a place where no one knew about the tragedy that ripped her family apart six months ago. A tragedy Rowan can’t help but blame herself for. Now the only thing she wants is to blend in. To escape the house that has become more like a prison. Her new school is her only hope. Somewhere she can pretend she’s just like everyone else. Only Rowan doesn’t realize how unique she is. Holden is the first to recognize it, but he’s not the last. Rowan can’t explain the draw she feels to the guys who have found their way into her life. The way something seems to spark the first moment she touches each of them. How it almost hurts to walk away from them at the end of each day. Things are changing, from the ripple of power humming just below her skin to this new family she’s finding herself a part of. But not all of the changes are good.
Someone doesn’t like the power Rowan is stepping into or the bonds she’s forming with the guys who have gifts as rare and strong as her own. And when the truth is revealed, it has the power to burn everything in its wake. Amazon KU
I was hoping for a few days off from dealing with murder charges, bad guys, and the everyday paranormal bizarre. All I wanted was a nice break from all the crazy. And did I get it? No. Of course not. Instead, a new coven comes to town. A coven of witch females who call themselves, The Sisters of the Circle, a small elite group for the upper crust of witch society—according to Dolores. But there’s something off about this coven, and I just can’t put my finger on it. All the while my aunts and other witches in town worship the ground they walk on, like giddy fangirls. Forget my time off. What I got was a whole new set of problems as my life spirals down the crapper once again. If that isn’t bad enough, a curse settles on Hollow Cove. Something dark, ominous, that threatens the lives of the townspeople. If I don’t find the counter-curse on time, I could lose everything. And the clock is ticking. Amazon KU
My name’s Lyra Ridley, and I run headlong into supernatural danger for a living. Of course, that’s not how I sold the job to my adoptive vampire dad. Or what I put on my dating profile for that matter. And I do have a wet-your-pants-level terrifying dragon partner rushing headlong into danger with me. But she, like my unusual magic, is frequently more hazard than help. Despite all that, I love my job protecting the streets of post-magic-revolution Las Vegas—where humans and supernaturals live side-by-side, or are at least having a stab at it. So when I get suspended and some jackass takes my city hostage? Yeah, there’s going to be hell to pay. Even if it means I have to team up with a mysterious supernatural I know nothing about—except that he has pointy ears, a rod up his backside, questionable priorities, and could kill me with his eyes closed. My dragon partner likes him even less than I do. Then again, she doesn’t like anyone, including me most of the time. But I’m pretty sure she won’t barbecue either one of us. Still, you’d better wish me luck. Amazon KU
Rhys has a simple life in the backwoods. All he needs is his trusty compound bow, impressive book collection, warm cabin, full food cellar, and himself. So, when Rhys discovers a sly wolf stealing his kills, which are supposed to last him through the coming winter, he’s forced to set a trap and kill the pest. But, instead of the wolf, Rhys finds a mysterious (and naked) man named Everett. After learning Everett has nowhere else to go, Rhys hesitantly invites him to stay and heal. But he doesn’t get much time to adjust to life with his eccentric (and stupidly handsome) house guest, not when winter arrives early and with a vengeance. Cooped up in the cabin together for months, will Rhys learn to love himself and another? Or will hidden truths and empty stomachs snuff out the flames of love and life?
My four older brothers have always been overly protective. Why can’t they trust me to make good choices? Ryker is a known bad boy, but I want him—and I know he wants me. I can’t stop thinking about him. I’ve been given a glimpse of a future brighter than one I’ve ever imagined. My brothers hate Ryker, and their meddling is out of control. They are doing everything in their power to keep us apart and push me toward another wolf. I don’t want another wolf as my mate. My brothers know something I don’t, though. And my whole world is about to fall apart. Amazon KU
VS: Moving on in my Backlist Features, this week is GHOST OF THE NILE, in honor of Halloween! The goddessof second chances sends Periseneb back to life to solve his own murder but it’s been 200 years, he only has 30 days and now he’s falling in love! I also wrote an ancient Egyptian version of a Regency house party…this book was so much fun to write?
GHOST OF THE NILE (GODS OF EGYPT SERIES)
But then the goddess of truth offers him a bargain: return to the world of the living as her champion for 30 days. If he completes his mission, he’ll be guaranteed entry into Paradise. Periseneb agrees to the bargain but, when he returns to the living world, two hundred years have passed and nothing is quite as he expected.
Neithamun is a woman fighting to hang onto her family’s estate against an unscrupulous nobleman who desires the land as well as the lady. All seems lost until a mysterious yet appealing ex-soldier, Periseneb, appears out of nowhere to help her fight off the noble’s repeated attacks.
Meanwhile, Periseneb’s thirty days are rushing by, and he’s powerless against the growing attraction between himself and Neithamun. But their love can never be. For his Fate is to return to the Afterlife, and Death cannot wed with Life…
LINKS TO RECENT NEW RELEASES POSTS from Veronica:
“New” is generally plus or minus a week or two. I try to catch up on ones I missed in recent months. And I may mention ‘special items’.
I do NOT cover every single new release in SFR/FantasyR/PNR. I never have. That would be an impossible task for any human! I assemble my list by hand every week based on various informal inputs, and I do curate the list to some extent…
Some authors aren’t in KU but still don’t list books with Apple or other platforms. This report is very time consuming to prepare so I’ve always had to limit myself and cannot go and look up every book on all the platforms. If an author gives me their other buy links, I include them here but generally I develop the post on my own, not from author-supplied information. I curate and prepare this post individually every week to help connect readers/books/authors and I have to be very careful not to give it so much time as an activity that I don’t write my own novels! Thanks for the feedback and happy reading!
I check and verify all the buy links at the time I create the post but after that I’m not responsible.
