I’m supposed to bring down the Zivonian warriors… not fall for one of them. The Kruul who captured me and my sister promised me they’ll let her live if I do one thing for them: infiltrate the Zivonians’ ship and find a way to destroy it. I’d do anything to protect Maya, so I have no choice but to accept their bargain. The only problem is, the Zivonians are nothing like I expected—especially Siro, the gorgeous alien captain. He’s honorable, powerful, and protective, and for some reason, he seems as drawn to me as I am to him. Getting close to him will give me the best chance to carry out my sabotage of the ship, but with every minute we spend together, I can feel my resolve wavering. If I don’t go through with my mission, the Kruul will kill my sister. But how can I betray the man I’m starting to fall in love with? AmazonKU AB
Kee Ildez has been many things: hacker, soldier, bounty hunter. She never expected to be a hero, but when a shadowy group of traitors starts trying to goad the galaxy’s two superpowers into instigating an interstellar war, Kee throws herself into the search to find out who is responsible—and stop them. Digging up hidden information is her job, so hunting traitors should be a piece of cake, but the primary suspect spent years in the military, and someone powerful is still covering his tracks. Disrupting their plans will require the help of her entire team, including Varro Runkow, a Valovian weapons expert who makes her pulse race. Quiet, grumpy, and incredibly handsome, Varro watches her with hot eyes but ignores all of her flirting, so Kee silently vows to keep her feelings strictly platonic. But that vow will be put to the test when she and Varro are forced to leave the safety of their ship and venture into enemy territory alone. Cut off from the rest of their team, they must figure out how to work together—and fast—because a single misstep will cost thousands of lives.
A grizzled gladiator – We both know I’m bad for her. My bite saved her life when she was an infant. It also bonded us together, mated us, created some perverse tie between us, even though I’m far too old her. Now, I’m thirty-five and she’s twenty. I’ve kept myself away from her for a long time. But now I’ve got to go to her. She’s in danger, and she is mine to protect. A human female – When I was a little girl, Sevren was my everything. My playmate, my babysitter, my confidante. Then he abandoned me without saying goodbye. For my own good, he said. Because my body was maturing but I was still too young. Because he couldn’t handle what our bond made him want from me. Now someone’s trying to kill me to get to him, and he’s back. I hate him for breaking my heart. But his presence has kick-started my biology, and now I’m in heat. No matter how complicated our feelings for each other, or how many blaster beams are getting shot at us, the bond wants us to mate. We won’t be able to fight that forever. AmazonKU

They want to make a “triumvirate” with me. I ask what it does. They smirk. One whispers: “It makes babies.” If you’re from Eden and see a man, it doesn’t always taint you right away. As long as your mind doesn’t think dirty thoughts too quickly, and as long as you don’t like what you see too much, you’re probably safe. At least you’d have time to look away. It’s different with Khetar men. If you see one, you think of every dirty thought you never thought you could have, until this lifetime of repressed desire bursts through your resolve like a dam under a tsunami, and the unbearable longing for something you never knew you wanted brings you right down to your knees. Yeah, that all just sort of happened to me. His name is Kaav. I look up, still on my knees and tainted as sin, and he’s got parts of his body that we don’t even have words for on Eden. Kaav is big and golden, and he says he wants to have babies with me. Normally it takes two, but Kaav is special. He has two bodies. He says that he’s all we’ll need. When I see his second body for the first time, in all its glistening silver glory, I can’t wait to submit to it. To beg it to do to me all the things Kaav says only a Khetar with two bodies can do to a woman. But in order to rescue me, Kaav had to make a deal with the devil. The devil’s name is Hive, and it’s taken over Kaav’s second body. And now it wants to take me too. AmazonKU

A thin line of warm light appeared at the edge of my vision, growing broader and brighter. Until a demon leaned over the edge of the pod, flickering light dancing over his red scaled features, dark horns jutting up through his short black hair. This time, I was the one who screamed. The sound of my voice in my ears shocked me back to reality. It wasn’t a nightmare, it wasn’t some hell or some devil. It was just another alien, like the dozens of species we’d met on the Dream. I sat up, coughing, pulling my sweater tight around me. “Thank you.” My throat was clogged from disuse. How long had I been asleep? “Where’s this? Where’re the others?” The demon guy stepped back from the sides of the pod, a blank look of incomprehension across his face. Oh no. That couldn’t be right. “Do you understand me?” Nothing. Right then. There hadn’t been much in the manual about this. Statistically, it wasn’t totally impossible that the pod could end up on a world that could sustain intelligent life, yet hadn’t been contacted by the Galactic Alliance. Heck, that’d describe Earth for most of its history. No Alliance, no translator. Uh oh. Amazon KU

Veronica’s Backlist highlight (because I make my living writing and selling my books): Next up is DAEGAN. I’d waited a long time to get just the right story for the human mercenary Flo and this was it – a dangerous undercover mission, far from help, a new Badari pack and an Alpha in hiding…I had so much fun writing the South Seas location. I try really hard to make each book in the series a different experience, aside from the basics like Fated Mates of course. I also had been dying to use this cover model and he was perfect for Daegan. Note: Each book can be read as a standalone.
Ex-Special Forces soldier and mercenary Flo Michetti is bored with her assignment as a pilot for the genetically engineered Badari pack in their fight against the evil Khagrish scientists. She jumps at the chance to take a dangerous undercover mission. She infiltrates a group of human prisoners on their way to a secret lab in the southern ocean, where the Badari believe many more of their own kind have been created and are being experimented on. Once Flo has located the lab, found the Alpha among the Badari there and sent a report back, the plan will be to attack and rescue all the prisoners.
Arriving at the island Flo learns the true nature of the horrific experiment for which the humans have been brought to this remote location. Time will be perilously short to escape before it’s too late for all of them. She has to locate the Alpha of this captive southern pack, who conceals his identity to escape death at the hands of the Khagrish, and get him to join with her and her allies.
Daegan feels an instant attraction to Flo when the Badari and the humans are forced together by the Khagrish scientists, but there are mysteries and questions surrounding her. Before he reveals himself as the incognito Alpha she’s seeking, he wants answers to allay his doubts. He also wants Flo in his bed…but can he risk his heart to claim her as his mate?
Complicating the situation is a dangerous rival for Daegan’s position as Alpha, an oncoming hurricane and Flo’s resistance to abandoning her life as a soldier of fortune…as the Khagrish scientists prepare to initiate the experiment, the clock is ticking for humans and Badari alike.

Third, if you literally fall into a delta’s arms during your escape, and he smells like sweaty nights and a potential mate, then listen when said mate tells you to run, because that is the only way you will survive. Run. I mean it. Act like you are a track star and take off into the night, and whatever you do, don’t look back. Fourth, if you are an unbonded omega like me, don’t be naïve. The council will hunt you down and find you, regardless of how much time has passed. Don’t get complacent, take precautions, and again, do not panic. The biggest lesson of all? Mates don’t let their omegas go that easily. When he finds me, he’s not alone. Amazon KU

Maddox – On his first day of kindergarten, Maddox shared his crayons with a young werewolf and gained a best friend for life. Fiercely loyal, kind, and always up for a good time, Vidarr is a cinnamon bun and Maddox would do anything to protect him. Vidarr’s older brother, Thor, on the other hand, Maddox would gladly push into a sinkhole. Where Vidarr is happy, good-natured, and kind, Thor is a brutish bully who’s hated Maddox since the day they lay eyes on each other. The feeling is almost mutual. Thor, with his big muscles, leather jackets, and thighs that could crush boulders, is the worst person Maddox knows, and Maddox would rather eat sand than admit that the highlight of his week is when they inevitably get into a fight and Thor puts him in a headlock. It’s purely physical, Maddox tries to convince himself. Thor is the pinnacle of a werewolf alpha–with his chiseled features, dominant attitude, and tendency to manhandle people into submission–and anyone with eyes would be attracted to him. Right? It’s not like Maddox has a crush or anything. Thor – Sometimes, Thor looks at the person the universe chose to be his mate and wonders ..(more blurb on ebook seller page…) Amazon KU

Never make a deal with the devil–especially if that deal entails holy matrimony. There’s only one rule my mother passed down to me before she died: Never venture into the east side of Edinburgh. I never questioned it. There are creatures in this world that could hurt us, she’d said. So, I stay away—until my life hits rock bottom, and I find myself curious about the forbidden side of the ancient city.
It doesn’t seem all that different here–bars, clubs, restaurants. Just like the human side. One too many drinks later, he finds me. A silly poem and a whispered wish are all it takes for him to rip through the mirror between realms and pin me against a wall. Cruel, inhuman, cunning. A demon—an actual prince from hell. With horns. What could he possibly want from me? Marriage, apparently. Because as it turns out, Bloody Marius is dead serious about upholding his end of the deal. AmazonKU

Join the marriage circuit and destroy the kingdom of Stormshield.

Brennan is the only bright spark in a month of pointless pomposity. But it’s hard to focus on matchmaking when Stormshield is in danger from persons unknown. As Brennan’s plans come to fruition, he finds it’s not as easy as he believed to destroy those people he’s come to care for.

All it took was one dang food delivery order…Because when the guy answered the door to tip me, my wolf took over. And now I’m hunting him. I thought my first mate was bad enough. My wolf rejected him after he hit me, and I was more glad than I can ever say. Especially when I found out a few weeks later that I was pregnant. But things are more complicated this time.

SORIN: He is Zmeu, one of the great dragons of myth. As a young dragon, he was told an important truth: Dragons do not fall in love. They definitely did not fall in love with mortal women. It’s a lesson Sorin takes to heart. He might have had a mortal mother, but mortals had also killed her, leaving him alone. A dragon grown, he dwells in an impenetrable castle, living a dragon’s best life. He dances with fae swan maidens, steals baubles from unknowing kings, scoffs at mortals stumbling through life wasting time on war, hate…love. Then love finds him. In the village of his birth, a woman teaches him a truth his dragon family hadn’t—it’s rather easy for a dragon to love. Ever seeking solace, ever seeking home – Easy to love, yes. But understanding her? Not so easy. Sorin’s arrogance led to her death…and a curse. Hundreds of years later, living in the New World as the world prepare for war, he is almost numb to the curse that haunts him still. You will wander, you will roam, they’d said. He did. But seeking solace, seeking home? Home and solace were lost to him, every bit as much as his love. As penance, he guards the mortals in his territory, as she had protected those under her care. He’ll hold off the coming war as long as possible. When the time comes to take up a sword—or breathe fire—he will. It’s little comfort, but his lost love would expect him to protect. So he does. One night, a sudden awareness yanks him from deepest sleep. Chasing the faint magical trail, he finds a woman battling for her life. Just before a killing strike, he sees her eyes…eyes of haunting green. The eyes of the woman he’d loved, the eyes of the woman he’d killed.

Especially since some people now want to see me dead. I’m a survivor though, so I’m only mildly concerned. It’s the EMT that I keep encountering who’s my immediate problem. I can get past those seductive eyes and the way they trace over my body, but my heart didn’t seem to have gotten the memo. He’s infuriating but impossibly enticing.

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.
