Crash-land on an alien barbarian planet and told there’s no way home? LMAO! I’m a rocket scientist. Miss me with that noise. Anyone else might have a nervous breakdown, but I was abducted with my besties! Between us, we have fifteen PhDs. We will be getting off this planet. Trust. No, I will not be finding an eternal bonded mate among the seven-foot-tall alien males. No, I will not be wearing a furkini and walking around barefoot. And no, I will not be moving into a cave with no internet or running water and accepting my fate like the rest of the freed human women on this craft-cocktail-forsaken planet. Two liquid hydrogen rockets and a smidge of deep-space travel later, and we’re back home on Earth. Except that our spaceship had stowaways. Now there’s a seven-foot-tall alien named Cassius in my Los Angeles condo. He’s calmly explaining that according to the ancestors, we are to be eternally mated and have a litter of children. Also, he’s wearing a loincloth. And he has horns. Wipe that smirk off your face. No, it is not as sexy as it sounds. He barked at my cat. He harassed my busybody Karen neighbor (actually, I’m okay with that one). And he’s obsessed with the ice maker in my fridge. What’s a smart girl to do? The smart thing is to build a rocket ship and send Cassius and his other hot alien friends back to their home planet. The not-smart thing to do is fall into those deep blue-gray eyes and let him show me just how good that forked tongue feels. And the downright stupid thing to do is fall in love with an alien.

Dr. Melinda ‘Mindy’ MacGyver drew the short straw. She was sent to the Warlord Javar–a warrior so fierce even the other barbarians feared him.

Veronica’s Backlist highlight (because I make my living writing and selling my books): This week is CAMRON, one of my absolute favorites to write and read.

She and another prisoner, Camron of the Badari, are the only survivors of a deadly crash landing. She’s paired up with the genetically engineered soldier by their mutual enemies and sent fleeing through rough country, hunted for pleasure by an enemy officer and his ferocious trackers.
The enemy wants a triumphant kill. Gemma and Camron want to survive.
Camron never dreamt of having a mate but Gemma shatters his preconceptions and makes him desperate to do everything in his power to save her life and claim her for his.
There’s no help or refuge to be had in the desert where they’re fleeing for their lives.
Or is there?
Will Camron and Gemma live to fight another day and explore the growing attraction between them, or will ancient secrets and bitter rivalries end their bid for freedom?

I punish lies and deceit, An eternal damnation of agony and pain. Yet, when it is my wife whose deception plagues me, I know what I must do. Shackle her soul to the lying, cold corpse that she is,
Ensuring that she never escapes me. My wrath, My torture, My pain, And my pleasure. I am the King of Flesh and Bone, Every part of her I possess and own. She is mine, Death shall never do us part.

These are the stories he discovered. Story #1 – Berta’s been managing the kitchen and main lodge since Yulen D’Jacques was a baby. She’s been there to see the good and the bad happen between the Battle Lord and Lady. But one memory, in particular, sticks out among all the rest.
He’s hot. He’s determined to be the next Alpha. And he just rejected me as his mate. I’m a traitor’s daughter, so I can never be the Alpha’s mate. But how can he deny our bond … the flame we felt beneath the willow tree that night? I want to hate his guts for ghosting me … but I can practically hear his wolf calling to mine. If determination had a name, this black wolf would be it. Tall, broad and muscular, he’s been training his whole life to take over as the new pack leader. With his sharp gray eyes and thick black hair, he looks every bit the part … And his delicious scent makes it impossible for me to stay mad at him … or resist him. Fine, let him prevail in the rank fights and become the new Alpha. Let him pretend that what happened between us was a one-off. And I will pretend to hate him and never want him again. Yet not even proud Alphas or rejected mates can escape fate…How much longer can we resist the delicious pull? Amazon KU
Playing pretend isn’t as innocent as it seems when your “imaginary” friends turn out to be all too real. Running wild in the woods with three amazing friends is a great way to grow up. Even if my parents think they’re made up. Everything is better with them by my side—hide and seek, pirates, wedding…Twenty years later, I have everything I’ve ever dreamed of. I travel all over the country with my circus troop and our aerial silks acts are always sold out. Time stops while I’m in the air, and I live for every daring performance of aerial skill with my best friend and lover, Geraint Knight. That all comes to an end after our last act of the season. Bloody Mary herself forces us through a mirror and drops us into the world of dreams and nightmares. My captors claim I’m the princess of Nightmare after my childhood “wedding.” And my princes want me back. Amazon KU
You can’t outrun your demons, but you sure as hell can give them a run for their money. The monster that’s tormented us from the shadows has finally stepped into the light, and he has his sights set on me. But discovering that my entire life has been orchestrated as a twisted form of training to help him literally unleash Hell on earth? Not exactly my idea of a romantic gesture. There’s an invisible noose around our necks, tightening more with every passing day, every saccharine smile Ash sends my way. He may have had centuries to put his plans in place, but he underestimates the depth of my spite, the lengths I’m willing to go to protect what’s mine. You don’t die for the people you love, you live for them. And unfortunately for Ash, he forgot to take the most important variable into account when making his plans; me. The thing even Nightmares fear. Amazon KU

From the moment Trenton figured out Libby was his mate, she suddenly possessed a great deal of magic.

I have huge man problems. Literally, since one of my mates is a T-Rex. Things are about to get interesting, because my day job happens to be in a museum. A museum full of dinosaur bones, if you know what I mean. It turns out my bloodline is older than dirt, and an ancestral matchmaker decided to send me some gifts…aka, men. And not just any men, but dinosaur shifters from the past. I’ve read enough paranormal romance to know all about fated mates, but I’ve never heard of fated dinosaur mates. These men are supposed to be my perfect match, here to help me learn about my magic. Rawr. Yes, they are as sexy as you are imagining. My life had been a routine of working and spending time watching TV with my pet pig, Albert Einswine. Now I needed to learn to control the magic I never knew I had, learn more about my family line, and help these sexy dino shifters adjust to modern society. All while hiding a T-Rex sized secret from the world. To make matters worse, detectives are looking into the explosion I may or may not have caused when my blood mixed with some magic-infused ancient dust, which is a serious problem since the sexy green-eyed detective has my heart flip-flopping in my chest.

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.
