Thanks for all the good wishes! I’m on Day 13 of COVID omicron and most of the symptoms are gone but wow, the fatigue is hanging on. I really have to be careful to rest a LOT and not try to do too much. I just don’t have any energy yet!
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 LOL).

There’s only one way for Harper to stop herself from becoming a savory snack for the ice-planet locals: Pretend to be Commander Tyr’s wife. On second thought, perhaps being eaten alive isn’t such a bad idea after all. Amazon KU

When Nash’s father dies from unknown causes, Nash’s hunt for answers brings him and Grady together to investigate what they believe is a deadly threat to the Endurance, one that might explain the misery that grips the ship and makes life unpleasant for everyone.

Evie Shao and her sister, Kass, aren’t on speaking terms. Fifteen years ago on a family camping trip, their father and brother vanished.

When Evie’s UFO network uncovers a new event, she goes to investigate. And discovers Jakob is back. He’s different—older, stranger, and talking of an intergalactic war—but the tensions between the siblings haven’t changed at all. If the family is going to come together to help Jakob, then Kass and Evie are going to have to fix their issues, and fast. Because the FBI is after Jakob, and if their brother is telling the truth, possibly an entire space armada, too.

CLAIMED BY THE ALIEN TYRANT by Sophia Sebell
Lord Kruth was a monster. Terrible, angry, ruthless… and I belonged to him. A simple hike in the woods on a clearly marked trail. Easy enough. Except my curiosity got the better of me and I fell off a cliff, landing straight in the center of a military training exercise that ended when a strange mist overtook the clearing. Next thing I know, me and the entire group of soldiers are captives of High Warlord Kruth on a distant planet. Stolen away to be forced into his military and help him take over the galaxy. Spoiler alert: I’m not a soldier. That was quickly discovered when I was forced into a trial to prove my worth and passed by sheer luck under the watchful eye of the admittedly hunky High Warlord Kruth. Lord Kruth rules with an iron fist, doling out cruel punishments to those that disobey him and commanding an unimaginably vast army. He’s terrifying, mean, ruthless… with his chiseled torso and thick thighs, barely contained under that fur covered loincloth he wears. That smoldering scowl that softens when his eye falls on me… Unfortunately (or maybe fortunately?) he had taken a liking to me and kept me by his side. All I could do was wait and follow Lord Kruth’s orders obediently, or as obediently as my mouth would let me. Hopefully, the soldiers abducted with me would work out an escape plan. There was a slight problem, though. The more time I spent with Lord Kruth, the less I was sure I even wanted to escape. Amazon KU

MANGLED (RIDGEWOOD ROGUE WOLVES SAGA BOOK 1) by Mazzy J March
Life should come with an instruction manual. Because nothing in mine to date has equipped me to deal with it. My mom is lost in her own world of drugs, gambling, alcohol, tobacco and the worst possible choices in men. If she’s even still alive. My dad, well, I don’t know who he is or where he is which is why this group home has been my home off and on since I was three. A girl with anger issues and only one leg isn’t really first in line to get adopted by the shiny, goodhearted people who stroll in here looking for a dream kid. In fact, sometimes they don’t even bother bringing me out for show. There’s no point, even though Mom signed off her rights to me. Like selling a used car, or giving one away. So, now that I’ve turn eighteen, they treat me as all children are who have grown out of the foster system. They put me out on my own with fifty bucks in my pocket and disappointment written on my forehead. Oh and a few months of rent in an apartment building that looks like a crime scene documentary location shoot. Survival is my only plan for life. Get a job. Rent a place to lay my head where no one can hit me and no creepy foster dad can try to sneak into my bedroom in the middle of the night. Eat. Sleep. Rinse. Repeat. I’m not a dreamer. Never have been. A shifter female with only one leg has no choice: survive and stay under the radar. Amazon KU
THE LADY UNDER THE LAKE: M/M PARANORMAL MYSTERY (QUEST INVESTIGATIONS BOOK 3) by E J Russell
This client is all wet…After receiving a hot tip on the whereabouts of my almost-boyfriend’s nearly-ex-husband (hey, I told you—it’s complicated!), I thought my love life was finally coming up for air. But when we stake out the remote lake, it’s not the ex who surfaces. It’s the Faerie King’s long-missing mother (and I mean really long, as in double-digit centuries), and she wants to hire Quest Investigations. Since one of my bosses is the king’s brother, he has a tsunami of…feelings about her as a potential client, and refuses to take the case. Instead, he passes it to me. Yes! However…Should I be thrilled at the vote of confidence or suspicious that he’s tossing me in the deep end without a life preserver, the better to punish the woman who abandoned her kid all those years ago? You know what? It doesn’t matter. I may be Quest’s token human, but I’ve proven I can get the job done, so I dive right in. Then the lady explains what she wants me to do: find her missing child. Seriously? I expected more of a challenge. All I have to do is introduce her to the king and bingo, case closed. But when she says, “Not that one,” this little family drama threatens to send ripples throughout the supernatural community—especially with my boss in over his head as the prime suspect in a fae kidnapping. As if things weren’t complicated enough… Remember that nearly-ex? When he shows up and muddies the waters, I’m faced with a choice: I can solve this case or I can finally hook my almost-boyfriend.

HIS SASSY OMEGA by Raiven Matthews
Quinn – I didn’t believe in fated mates, or any of that insta-love nonsense. Truthfully, I barely believed in love. It wasn’t something I’d ever needed, and I didn’t have time for it. Besides, love just led to being hurt, and I could do without that. When a huge alpha barged his way to the front of the line in my bakery, it was anything but a meet cute. My sassy mouth promptly told him exactly where he could take his perfectly formed behind. Right back out the door he’d just come in, and don’t come back, thank you very much. Then our hands touched, and sparks of electricity shot between us, and my soul screamed Mate. I wasn’t looking for love, or a mate, but he was looking at me and I couldn’t look anywhere else. He was big and sexy and growly, and smelled like every wishful dream I’d ever had, and forgotten. Making me want things I’d never wanted before. Making me want to run from him as fast as my legs could carry me. Secretly, hoping he would chase me. Lachlan – I was having a bad morning. Clashing with a smart mouthed, sarcastic omega was the cherry on top of my already bad day. Getting tossed out of my favorite place for sweet treats was not how I’d planned to start my day. I’d always played by the rules, and done what was expected of me. My whole life, I’d known what I’d wanted in my mate. Until he was standing in front of me, nothing like I’d expected him to be, sassing me and ordering me about. Now he was all I wanted. I just had to convince him of that. We were opposites in every way. Fate must have gotten Her wires crossed, and messed up big time. Or did She? Amazon KU

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.
