VS Note: Many Star Trek fans here, I’m sure! I am…
For over five decades, the heart of Star Trek’s pro-science, anti-racist, and inclusive messaging has been its willingness to take big risks. Across thirteen feature films, and twelve TV series—including five shows currently airing or in production—the brilliance of Star Trek is in its endless ability to be rethought, rebooted, and remade. Author and Star Trek expert Ryan Britt charts an approachable and entertaining course through Star Trek history; from its groundbreaking origins amid the tumultuous 1960s, to its influence on diversifying the space program, to its contemporary history-making turns with LGBTQ+ representation, this book illuminates not just the behind-the-scenes stories that shaped the franchise but the larger meaning of the Final Frontier. Featuring over 100 exclusive interviews with actors and writers across all the generations, including Walter Koenig, LeVar Burton, Dorothy Fontana, Brent Spiner, Ronald D. Moore, Jeri Ryan, and many more, Britt gets the inside story on all things Trek, like Spock’s evolution from red devil to the personification of logical empathy, the near failure to launch of The Next Generation in 1987, and how Trekkie outrage has threatened to destroy the franchise more than once. The book also dives deep with creators like Michael Chabon (co-creator of Star Trek: Picard) and Nicholas Meyer (director, The Wrath of Khan). These interviews extend to the bleeding edge of contemporary Star Trek, from Discovery to Picard to Lower Decks, and even the upcoming highly anticipated 2022 series, Strange New Worlds. For fans who know every detail of each Enterprise bridge, to a reader who has never seen a single minute of any Star Trek, this book aims to entertain, inform, and energize. Through humor, insight, archival research, and unique access, this journey through the Star Trek universe isn’t just about its past but a definitive look at its future.

I won’t blame my boys for this. It wasn’t their fault. I wasn’t going to be able to hide my magick forever, so this was inevitable.

And Quinn. A player warlock who struggles with his feelings for me just as much I struggle with my feelings for him. If I’m about to die, then at least I’ll go down fighting. I owe that much to my coven—those cowards who sold me out just so they wouldn’t feel Seth’s fury themselves. I know it’s going to hurt, but I also know there will be a brief moment when I lose my virginity where the magick will crackle against my skin, and soar through my veins. That is when I must strike—and try to take down as many of them with me as I can…before the incubus claims all of me for himself. AmazonKU

Writing down your dreams…that sounded pretty harmless right? Turned out, I was sort of good at it.
Turned out, it made a good book. Because who knew you could make money from writing about the man of your dreams. Who knew it would pay to fantasize about a fictional character you had fallen in love with. But most of all, who knew that one day a set of doors would open, and you would find out that he wasn’t fictional at all. That he was real. I had no idea writing could be so dangerous but then when you’re writing about a Demonic Overlord, an Enforcer named Kaiden Wrath, then anything was possible. Like dreaming of him in trouble and knowing you’re the only one who knew how to save him. The only one who can save the Demon you are obsessed with. Now all I had to do, was find him and then quickly save myself from… A Demon’s Wrath. Amazon KU
The omens gather, while Camelot fractures…Saraid is an orphan, thanks to the Saxons, but has found a place as lady companion to Adrivete, the daughter of King Drust of Deira. She wants nothing more than to stay where she is and live a quiet, uneventful life. Her peace is shattered when Owain, the son of the dead King of Rheged, rides into Deira and demands they hand over Lamorak, the murderer of his aunt, Morguase of Lothian…before sliding from his horse in exhaustion.

Neither of them wants to go to Camelot. Together, they might survive the politics, conspiracies and the storm that gathers over the city of miracles. Amazon Apple Books Kobo

My Protector: Being sheriff of a small town has lots of perks. Richard knows just about everyone by name, he gets free coffee at the café, and he gets to spend as much time as he wants with Amber Graves, the woman he desires above all others. Unfortunately he finds himself firmly friend-zoned, much to his and his shadow-wolf’s dismay. When strange phone calls bring up memories of a dark past that rocks Amber’s soul, Richard knows he needs to protect her — even if he’d not so sure he can protect himself. Rare as a Unicorn: Warrior Jova was once a unicorn, masterful and proud… Now he’s stranded in Angel Falls. People here are strange, and none more strange and desirable than the pair who rescues him one snowy morning. Baylin and Torin, Angel Falls’ veterinarians, have a lot going for them — talent, exciting careers, the love of each other, and a strong relationship… but they’re not complete. They need a third to commit to being with them. The attraction is immediate, but how can they make this work? Amazon Kobo
Sebastian’s first instinct is to run for the hills. His second is to wish that Viggo had asked him on a date like a normal person. If the muscle-bound stud had approached him at a bar and offered to buy him a drink, Sebastian would have followed him home like a lust-drunk puppy, no questions asked.
But there will be no dating or offers of drinks for Sebastian. He took the cash from the werewolf mating program, knowing full well that a werewolf might someday claim him, and now the consequences of that decision have come back to bite him in the ass. Literally. Viggo is the very pinnacle of a werewolf alpha–tall, dominant, and built like a Greek god–and if Sebastian is honest with himself, everything he’s ever wanted in a man. Once the panic fades, he thinks that he might actually be lucky. There’s just one problem. Viggo comes as part of a package deal, and his other half is a feral alpha named Bjorn who likes to chase bunnies, guard his territory, and strut around looking like Tarzan’s scary older brother. He’s very intimidating, especially when he wants to cuddle and play roughhouse. Viggo claims that together he and Sebastian can fix Bjorn–that they can soothe his wolf and put his human half back in the driver’s seat–but Sebastian is far from sure he’s up to the task. He wouldn’t even know where to begin. And even if he could fix the feral stud, how exactly is he supposed to handle being mated to two alpha werewolves? Viggo’s confidence that he’s up to the task is not particularly reassuring. Amazon KU
I thought once we released the curse, I’d only have one enemy to contend with. Wrong. The queen lives. Not only that, but she knowingly hid herself from me and the rest of this kingdom until the moment the curse was broken. Now she is back, and her desires aren’t clear. Neither are her motives.
Will she try to take the throne for herself? We can stop her…unless she had a hand in that curse. In which case, will we need to battle her and the demon king before we can finally live in peace? Or has this all been for naught? Regardless, we have very little time before the demon king returns to wipe us out. Amazon KU
Welcome to Fate Hollow Academy, a place where supernaturals come together to train for war on humans. Humans and dragons alike had declared war in Kalista. Every supernatural must stand and fight, but would it be unified or did the dragon cult hold their allegiance? Humans have been experimenting on their own, creating something more mechanical than human. Dragons have been making alliances with other supernaturals under the guise of fighting our mutual enemy, but their agenda was darker than that. All I wanted was to hide away with my mates, wrapped in the love we shared. It was a fantasy I desperately yearned for, but with every turn, a new enemy revealed themself. Amazon KU

Julian Rousseaux has a problem. He’s single, and for the world’s wealthiest vampires, the social season is about to begin. Julian would rather stake himself than participate in the marriage market. But as the eldest, eligible Rousseaux he’s expected to find a wife before the season ends—whether he likes it or not. When cellist Thea literally stumbles into his life at a gala, he knows she’s the last person he could ever fall in love with. She’s too innocent, too kind, and way too human. But now that she knows about his world, she’s also a walking target. She needs protection. He needs a fake girlfriend to discourage overzealous vampire matchmaking. So, Julian makes Thea an irresistible offer: pretend to be his lover and he’ll change her life. For one year, they’ll attend the season’s social events together in exchange for his protection and a way out of her mother’s crippling medical debt. She can’t say no. But the vampire world is impossibly decadent and darker than Thea ever imagined, and Julian’s filthy rich vampire family wants her out of the way. But with each moment they share, new dangers emerge: a desire as forbidden as their stolen touches, an awakening of a long-dead heart, and secrets that could tear them both apart. Amazon KU
Death waits for no one, unless you’re a necromancer, in which case he might stop for a cup of tea and a chat. I didn’t ask to be a necromancer, and I certainly didn’t ask to be saddled with a magical amulet holding an ancient big bad at bay. I got both. All I want to do is steer clear of trouble, write horror novels, and hang with my talking cat. But the spell on my amulet is weakening, and the only way to sustain it is to pick up and go to Frostgate—a city built on a powerful convergence of ley lines. The plan is to lay low and wait for a revelation that’ll lead me to my conduit, my perfect match, to help me to sustain the spell on the lock. But there is no laying low at Grave Spirits MC. No avoiding the burning stares of the hellhound Vice President, the icy cool assessment of the undead Sergeant at Arms, or the warm amber gaze of the hellhound Club Secretary. I can’t get involved with any of them. I have a perfect mate to find. But for the first time in my life steering clear of trouble is the last thing I want to do. Amazon KU

VS: Next book in my Badari backlist is DARIK. I thought I should have a story about one of Jamokan’s men and I thought it would be interesting to have a hero who liked being independent and without a mate…until, ooops, he’s got one but wow, are there a lot of obstacles! Some of the scenes in this one are a little tribute from me to “Aliens” and “The Puppet Masters” (the movie version of the Heinlein novel, not the horror film).
Nicolle James is far from her home in the human Sectors, kidnapped by alien scientists to be the subject of horrifying experiments. Her only hope might be a mysterious soldier she’d glimpsed outside the laboratory fence. She’d managed to sneak a few words of conversation with him when her captors weren’t watching but now the aliens were taking her inside the lab to begin the experiments.
Darik, a warrior of the genetically engineered Badari pack, is on a solo recon mission to check out a mysterious new lab high in the mountains. His orders are strict – do not engage. But when he has a chance meeting with the woman who might be his mate, he vows not to abandon her, orders or no orders.
Can he get inside an underground lab, find Nicolle and rescue her without getting captured himself? And when he learns the lab’s deadly secrets, can he get word to his pack about the new dangers?
Because the ruthless alien scientist running the experiments wants to get her hands on him too and will stop at nothing to achieve her goals.
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.
