Talyani Zulfiqar has been an interplanetary superstar since she won the Worlds competition at the age of thirteen. Her mother is a socialite of renowned beauty, and her father is a powerful Supreme Judge. From the outside, her life is perfect, but Taly had a secret and someone for whom she’d sacrifice everything. Ranvir Somerled had been proud to serve and protect the people of Kirs as a member of the Cyborg Military Elite. Orphaned at a young age, it was the only family he had left. Then Emperor Shui, in his quest for power, destroyed that family, and he became a rebel. With their world in chaos, can two drastically different people find a way to survive and maybe even love? Or will their secrets and misunderstandings tear them apart?
High in the icy northlands of Dakkar, I’ve lived a sheltered, predictable, and safe life. My days are spent caring for an ancient temple and staying out of the priestesses’ way. My nights are spent pouring over the great stories of warrior kings and the queens that stole their hearts. But I have a secret. I’m a hybrid female. Half-Dakkari, half-human, the first of my kind. The priestesses have risked everything to keep me hidden from the dangerous hordes that roam the wild lands and the greedy king that sits on the throne in Dothik. I am the secret they could never let free. Then a horde king—with molten eyes and the body of a battle god—shows up at the temple’s gates, demanding entry. He’s the one I see in my dreams, all ruthless, merciless strength and a tempting smirk to match. Only, he’s not the gentle male I always imagined. He’s cunning, sensual, cruel…and he thinks that everything has a price. Even me. With a growing danger in the east and a precarious throne in the west, he steals me away from the sacred temple with daring plans all his own. He thinks I’m a naive temple girl, who will bend easily to his demands. Instead, I fight him at every turn, showing him claws of my own. Instead of fear, lust begins to rise between us—hot, addicting, and forbidden. His teasing touch makes me tremble. His stolen kisses make me weak. But the horde king of Rath Serok is as mysterious as he is devilish. And he has his own secret…one that will forever change the future of Dakkar. Amazon KU

Volkor’s tall, handsome, great with my kid…Oh, and an alien warrior bent on stopping the apocalypse. Only he gets my heart racing like no one else.

I was born a human, but lived my life as a mutant, pulling shadows to hide myself. It was useful skill when you worked for the government as their top assassin, slaying the enemies of this world. Only what if I hadn’t been slaying the enemies and this entire time I’d worked for the wrong side of humanity? Never once had I questioned my life, my job, the government, until they handed me a file with three marks, and I confidently set out to kill. But I hadn’t expected to be seen in the dark and captured by three ruthless and sexy mutants, who insist that I am the omega their hierarchy had been looking for. They were monsters. This I knew. Yet, the words they spoke raised questions and I, well, I needed answers. With Warren, Ansel and Rex at my side, I was forced to look outside the prettily painted box the government had allowed its citizens to see, and into the chaotic mess of the mutant world as they fought for the survival of their people. We needed answers and the only way to get answers was to be the monsters they label us as. Ruthless. Conniving. Cruel. It’s a cruel world out there, and the cruelest monsters always win. Amazon KU

But we have a mutual enemy, the Black Mage. The man I’ve been hunting for fifteen years for the death of my parents. I’ll leave pleasure… I mean revenge, on Fin for a later date. With him on my side, payback just got easier. Only, the Black Mage has done something horrible to Fin as well. I’m not sure exactly what, but if I don’t figure it out soon, this mission could turn into a disaster. Amazon Apple Books Kobo

His name is Alixandre Osmont, and he’s a traveling magician. Only, he’s a magician who really possesses magic. Not only that but there’s something about Alixandre that seems strangely… familiar, though I’m sure I’ve never set eyes on him before. Yet, my soul doesn’t seem to agree. Oh, and Alixandre just happens to be gorgeous with a capital G, and he’s British and has a voice that could melt glass. But I digress. Anyway, while constantly reminding myself I have a caring, loving, and wonderful boyfriend in Marty, I can’t help but feel guilty regarding this strange and overpowering attraction I have to another man. And, what’s stranger still is that Alixandre seems to return my same bizarre and confusing feelings. It’s not long before my personal life is in turmoil, and that’s when I learn Finn is in trouble. The only person I can turn to, the only person who can help me fight off the dark powers trying to gain control of my son, is Alixandre. Stuck between a rock and a hard place, I do what any caring mother would—I go after my son and damn the consequences. Amazon KU
All I want to do is get the hell out of Dodge…In this case, ‘Dodge’ is the First Gate of the Underworld, which is like the sister city to Level One, Hell. But it’s not like I can leave anytime soon—not when Adonis, my only friend (who’s also super hot), just got dude-napped by the absolute worst queen in the history of queens. No, I mean it. Azrhea puts Bloody Mary to shame…Anyhoo, even when I’m given the chance to escape and head to the Second Gate of the Underworld, I don’t take it. Not only do I want to rescue Adonis from the clutches of She-Bitch, but I also sort of, kind of made a promise to Ereshkigal, the original ruler of the First Gate, that I’d help her reclaim her kingdom. The only problem is Azhrea is proving really freaking difficult to kill. And when Hades, the God of the Underworld, decides to make an entrance, I really don’t know what to think. Hades is the ultimate definition of ‘man-perve,’ but he also seems to strangely want to help me. At least, I think he wants to help me…He warns me that Rurik, the keeper of the Second Gate, is going to be even tougher to vanquish than Azhrea. And getting rid of Azhrea is like trying to get rid of ants.But the biggest takeaway from my meeting with Hades? I must beware of Ares, the God of War, who occupies the Fifth Gate of the Underworld. Right. Like I didn’t already know that. Ares is currently keeping my sister’s soul hostage as he waits for me to make my way through the other four gates, so he can have the honor of killing me and starting a war with Olympus. I’m really hoping I won’t give him that satisfaction. AmazonKU

I’d known exactly who he was—the Unseelie prince. But I hadn’t known just what he was. I’d been fooled. The creature I’d formed a tentative friendship with in my family’s dungeon was not the gentle, intriguing prince I’d thought him to be. He was a monster. A bloodthirsty beast. And I’d helped him escape my uncle’s clutches. Such a betrayal called for severe consequences, and the price of releasing the biggest threat our kingdom had faced in hundreds of years was not one I would survive. But upon discovering my uncle’s foiled plans for their prince, the Unseelie demanded vengeance, and an agreement was made. My savior and my doom returned, and this time, he wasn’t leaving without me.

I couldn’t let that happen. Though avoiding fate would prove impossible when the only way to save my life was to surrender it by marrying the monster who’d destroyed it. Amazon KU

The Voodoo Queen has evoked Erzulie, the Loa of Love, to render him susceptible to my allure Once I’ve enthralled the king my orders are to stake him and cast a spell to harness the power that lingers in his blood.

Pain is an abyss. How naive of me to think I’d already reached the very depths of it when fate shook my world with a crushing blow. It turns out, there are fathomless levels of pain, like a winding labyrinth of doors leading to shadowy figures and long-forgotten secrets. The kind of inescapable descent into madness that twists nightmares into reality. What lies at the end of this obscure path I have yet to discover, but where it begins, is a place called Infernium. An asylum, feared by those in Nightshade and untrodden by the angels who’ve forsaken its many lost souls. Some say it’s the gateway to hell. Others believe it’s where you go when the last flicker of hope dies out. For me, it’s where I’ve damned myself for eternity–my penance for a crime against the heavens, and home to the demons that claw at my mind. Yet, not even they stand a chance against my dark angel, Jericho. He fears nothing. Except losing me. The longer I remain trapped, though, the stronger this darkness inside of me grows. A duality dividing my heart between love and revenge. And, soon, saving me may no longer be an option. 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.
