SARAH – It’s not you. It’s me. Fen’k is a total cinnamon roll of a Xarc’n hunter who makes me want what I’ll never have: to live happily ever after. He deserves someone who isn’t afraid to love him back. After the last person I trusted stomped on my heart and stole all that I cared about , I stopped believing in love. I’m sure it still exists; just not for me. But when the growly alien warrior offers to help me find my missing son, I throw caution to the wind, even though losing my heart would destroy me. I just hope I’m not making a horrible mistake. FEN’K – I’ll believe for the both of us.
Sarah is all I’ve been able to think about since I first laid eyes on her. Even though she turns me down, I know she’s the one. When she asks me what the catch is for finding her missing offspring, I pull the deal out of thin air. I’ll find her son, but she must come along, and if we form a mating bond, she’ll give us a chance. I make it my mission to open her heart again. She doesn’t believe love lasts forever, but I know mate bonds do. Now all I have to do is wait for the bond to start. AmazonKU
One Gryn warrior is trouble. Two are chaos…If being abducted by aliens wasn’t bad enough, ending up stuck on a planet full of huge, hulking alien males? My worst nightmare. Until Ayar and Vypr crash into my existence. Ayar is chaos incarnate. His mate, Vypr isn’t going to let him make any more mistakes. But Vypr will do anything for Ayar, so when he asks for me because he needs my help, Vypr uses all of his influence to get me out of the medical center and into their lives. I’ve learned the hard way not to trust easily, but when it seems like Ayar wants me and Vypr doesn’t, I don’t want to come between them any more than I want to risk my heart. These Gryn warriors fight hard, play hard and mate hard and, as I spend more time with them, I can feel myself falling for both males. So, while Ayar wants to bed me, and Vypr only wants to growl at me, I have to figure out what’s best for us all, before fate tears us apart and I lose my heart all over again. Amazon KU
I thought being kidnapped by vile, alien slavers was bad enough. Then I woke up on a lust moon.
I know all about the Xulonian recreation moons, but I’d hoped to end up on the hunting one. As a security officer for the empire, I know how to fight. I am not prepared to wake up practically naked on a strange island. It doesn’t take me long to figure out that the hedonistic island I’m trapped on isn’t what it seems—and the voyeurs who pay to watch aren’t easily satisfied. With no weapons and no way off, hiding is my only option. Until I run straight into him. The massive Taori isn’t willing to put on a show for our captors either. He’s determined to escape. Teaming up with him makes sense until the carnal lust surrounding us triggers his mating fever. Now the only way to escape may be to give the alien voyeurs—and the Taori warrior—what they so desperately want. Amazon KU

VS: Going back to my Backlist features, next in the Badari Warriors series is JAMOKAN. I had the best time figuring this one out in terms of who Jamokan was, who did he want to be, what did he want out of life and what kind of a mate did he need. Which is NOT the mate he expected to have at ALL. This character had a lot of growth to accomplish during the novel.
Badari Alpha Jamokan and his pack are growing discontented in the sanctuary valley, tired of coming in second place to the pushy new South Seas pack when it comes to assignments and everything else. On top of the discord within his pack, Jamokan is distracted by the search for the right woman to be a proper Alpha’s mate to partner with him in combat and in everyday life. Even the Badari goddess is warning him in visions that he and his pack are on the wrong path for a happy future. In desperation, he receives permission to take his entire pack north to the mountains for a two week hunting expedition, where he hopes to use the time and rugged surroundings to settle the soldiers down and restore order and discipline.
And figure out his own future.
When his men unexpectedly locate a hidden Khagrish lab, he goes to investigate and see if there are humans to be rescued. Little does he suspect he’ll be called upon to break one of the highest commandments of the Badari packs and bring a new disaster to those who look to him for leadership. Before she became a Khagrish prisoner,
Rosemari Parcher was a hydroponics technician on a gritty colony world, who unexpectedly won a planetwide contest. Tapped to receive her heart’s desire and move to a totally different life in the luxurious Inner Sectors, her life had become a happy dream. Kidnapped in space by enemy aliens and given to the Khagrish, she and other humans are the unwilling subjects of a bizarre medical experiment where a quick death seems to be her only hope. Rescued by Jamokan and his pack, she finds herself deeply attracted to the Alpha but the devious Khagrish aren’t through with Rosemari or the experiment.

The vampire Wulfe is missing. Since he’s deadly, possibly insane, and his current idea of “fun” is stalking me, some may see it as no great loss. But, warned that his disappearance might bring down the carefully constructed alliances that keep our pack safe, my mate and I must find Wulfe—and hope he’s still alive. As alive as a vampire can be, anyway. But Wulfe isn’t the only one who has disappeared. And now there are bodies, too. Has the Harvester returned to the Tri-Cities, reaping souls with his cursed sickle? Or is he just a character from a B horror movie and our enemy is someone else? The farther I follow Wulfe’s trail, the more twisted—and darker—the path becomes. I need to figure out what’s going on before the next body on the ground is mine.
An escaped spider, the unexpected arrival of an Imperial Russian Prince, the senseless assassination of a powerful figure, a shocking attack on the supposedly invincible Warden of Texas, Catalina’s boss… And it’s only Monday. Within hours, the fate of Houston—not to mention the House of Baylor—now rests on Catalina, who will have to harness her powers as never before. But even with her fellow Prime and fiancé Alessandro Sagredo by her side, she may not be able to expose who’s responsible before all hell really breaks loose.
When Donovan St. James’ precocious charge asks him—no questions asked—to tail the doctor who keeps their ragtag team patched up, he wants to refuse. Not because the saucy teen is getting too big for her britches, ordering him around like a mob boss, but because the woman stirs feelings in him he would rather not explore. However, when evil threatens the doc’s life, he realizes he has no choice. Sia saved his life once. He will try to return the favor. He just prays he can do it without losing his heart. Running from the supernatural entity that has destroyed entire worlds to have her, Sia thought she’d found a haven on Earth with a motley team of warriors protecting the girl destined to save humanity. But when Sia’s found, she realizes something on this plane is more scrumptious than her: that very teen. So, she runs—and Donovan St. James follows. Nothing is more alluring than a scruffy biker with a lacerating gaze. And she vows to tell him that…if they survive. Amazon AB

So, I have a third mate. No big deal. Except, Auric punched my royal—descended from gods—betrothed right in the face. Novak has murder in his eyes, more so than usual. And my body is screaming at me to take all three males and teach them who’s in charge here. Because I believe the truth now. I’m a Noir royal, descended from the gods themselves and destined to fix the history my fake-father forged. The one where black-winged angels were the result of sin and scandal instead of the truth. My black wings mark me as a superior being, one that will reunite Angelkind to the glory they once were. But first, I need to get my three mates in line and keep them from killing each other. Ketos, a prince with gold-tipped wings, has a legion of Noir on his side, technology and power that we’ll need to play Sayir’s game. Not to mention he has always been destined to be my mate, a fact I know is as true as the sun and the stars. Novak, my lethal weapon, has been blessed by the gods, chosen to stand with us and slay our enemies. And Auric, my Commander, my Nora, represents everything I want for a new world, one where Nora and Noir work together like they were meant to. It’ll take a miracle, or divine intervention, to convince these three males to work together. It’s my ultimate test. A trial that I must pass.

he Underworld continues to spring new surprises…After narrowly escaping Gate One of the Underworld, I find new threats and horrors facing me in Gate Two. Led by the infamous Fallen God, Ruric, Gate Two is a land of black, onyx mountain and hordes of flying demons. And Ruric is furious that Azhrea is dead, even though she was planning on wiping him out. Men, right? While I hope to defeat Ruric and move to Gate Three of the Underworld like yesterday (I am on a time crunch), I know I’m in for even more horrors. Because Gate Three of the Underworld is lorded by the fierce Kanto, the King of Oblivion, and his level of the Underworld is a place that doesn’t so much mess with your body, but more with your head. Take, for example, the white fog that fills the entirety of Gate Three and steals your memories as easily as it hides the deadly wraiths who live inside it.

It’s going to take time and a fat wallet to restore the fixer-upper to its former glory, but after my recent divorce, I could use the distraction.

Meanwhile, I’m also growing closer to my general contractor, Ryan Kelly—who is as charming as he is alive. The chill in the air could only suggest Drake’s jealousy from beyond the grave… men, right?

My body flipping between ages 40 and 60 is not inspiring. The Fates have gone missing and their mother blames me. Why would she do that? They tell me what to do. It doesn’t work the other way around. In their absence, time has gone crazy. I’ve got to fix that problem before I can worry about searching for the missing Moirai. And who knows? Maybe the Fates got tired and wanted a vacation.

Okay, so I rarely see dead people, mostly I see furry creatures of the dearly departed variety, who have come back from the other side to warn me of their previous owner’s impending doom. The grand dame of Leeds County has passed away and her friends and family are throwing a going away party—aka funeral—of the ages. Everyone is invited to the swanky soiree but Carlotta’s invitation seems to have gotten lost in the mail. Lucky for her, I’m catering the event, and I begrudgingly let her tag along as my assistant.

Throw in a string of murders, and her insatiable thirst for justice, and you’ll have more chaos than you know what to do with. Living in Honey Hollow can be murder. Amazon KU

At the ancient, doddering age of thirty, it’s long past time Prince Amador married, at least according to his domineering family. Determined to see the matter attended at last, they have issued an ultimatum: find a betrothed before the year is out, or he’ll be sent off to marry Prince Ottokar, Crown Prince of their oldest enemy, a man Amador has hated and feared for nearly all his life. Desperate to avoid that fate, he has one last chance: to win the affections of Prince Nazaire, who has notoriously turned away every single suitor barely before they make their introduction. When he arrives, though, Amador finds not a snooty prince impossible to please, but a castle so brimming with secrets and romantic pining that the whole mess would be worthy of a bard’s tale. If there’s one thing Amador loves more than mischief, it’s romance. He won’t ever be happy in his own marriage, but here’s a chance to see that others will be happy in theirs—and if he’s lucky, they’ll all be so pleased with the results that the quiet, handsome King Sohan will insist that he remain to help with other matters.

He hasn’t asked me to accept him fully as his mate since he told me I was his, and I can’t shake the feeling that he’s still comparing me to his lost female. Meanwhile, I have my own war to wage. When Peyton follows through with Walker’s threat to out me to the Alpha collective, the truth of my abilities finally gets out to the whole shifter world. Now I’ve got an even bigger target on my back. When a group of shifters decides that I’m too much of a risk to be allowed to stay alive, they come after me. And they’re not the only ones. To protect me, Aleks decides that it’s time I take him as my bonded mate. And I want to—but I can’t. The Luna has gone silent, and without her blessing, the bond will never take. So I reject him one last time, and then I do the only thing I’ve ever been good at: I run away. There’s just one small problem. He might not have claimed me, but all it took was one bite—one taste of his skin—and I’ve inadvertently triggered a vampire’s blood bonding. And Aleks? He’s willing to burn down the whole world to find me. Amazon KU

Ever since I planted my butt firmly in the Dragon King’s throne, my already-rogue magical powers have multiplied. My magic has developed an unfortunate tendency to blow things up whenever I’m unhappy. I’m Queen of the isle. I’m also Queen of the wreckage. So while I master my powers, I’ll be the hidden queen. Jaik rules in the north as the dragon king. His brother, Caldren, rules the rebels in the south as the wolf king. And I’m caught between them, as always.

Turning him into a monster. And all the while, the Lord of the Scourge waits for me. He’s my best chance of saving Arren. And he’s my best chance of losing myself. Amazon KU

Would you like an extra helping of hot flashes to go with that midlife crisis? Yeah, I thought not. And yet, here we are. Burning down buildings. You know, dating in your forties should be easier. Should be. But it really isn’t. My first date in I don’t-know-how-long is broken up by my ex-husband. I mean, he’s dead, but still. Then a cryptic note from a voodoo queen. A siren who can’t keep it in his pants. And a hot fae who seems to be everything I’ve ever wanted. Except that he’s not a certain blacksmith. I can deal, right? Once more I am up against the dark council, fighting to discover and hide ingredients to a spell that would mean destruction for not only Savannah, but the world. I know who I can trust.

But how can that be possible when his father is always there, hiding in the shadows of my dreams? How do I live with the fact that my visions keep playing my mates’ deaths over and over again?

But now it’s time I sit down and have a one-on-one with Zorren Morningstar, Folas Berin, and Trizzin Shadepaw about it. Well, that one-on-one went horribly wrong. One avoids me, One hasn’t spoken to me in months, and I pushed the other one away.

The world went to shit the day I was born. They say fire rained from the sky for seven days signalling the arrival of the monsters. They say humanity fought hard to beat them. They say the celestials saved us. They say a lot of things. Me? I deal in the present. In scouting for useful things and keeping my team alive outside the protective walls of our base. I might not have a fancy monster-killing blade like the Sweepers do, but I’ve avoided getting my face eaten off so far, so I call that a win. But when my base is taken by monsters, my scout skills are the only thing standing between imminent demise and survival. Sanctuary lies across the deadlands—monster infested territory, unmapped and uncharted even by the celestials. It’s the only route, and I have no choice but to navigate my people through it. I’m a scout, a survivor. I got this. Until I haven’t. The last thing I expect is to be relying on four monsters for protection. But fate obviously has a sense of humor. Shemyaza and his scouts are intelligent, deathly, and lethal, and turns out they’re the only ones who can lead us to safety. Only problem is, their aid comes with a hefty price. Me. Amazon KU

Oh my God, I just brained a unicorn with a frying pan. Single mom Cathy always secretly dreamed of stepping through a magic portal into a mysterious, mythical realm. So far, it’s not going great. In her defense, she didn’t mean to hit the winged unicorn. She just wasn’t expecting him to drop out of the sky behind her.

If he can help her achieve her quest, she’ll go back to her own world, and his life will return to normal. All Aodhan has to do is somehow disguise Cathy’s human nature, escort her deep into enemy territory, help her infiltrate a dangerous fae court….and never, ever succumb to the temptation to touch her.

Harlee has lived as a human her entire life, working as a psychiatrist on a secret government project evaluating captured werewolves and vampires. Then one night two strangers jerk her from her bed, blindfold her and turn her world upside down. She is taken deep into the realm of lycans and vampires and told an unbelievable story—that she is the daughter of a forbidden union between a vampire and a werewolf and now possibly the future leader of both their clans. She doesn’t believe them. Vampires and werewolves are the enemies of humans. She hangs onto her humanity, her one and only goal to escape from her sexy and enigmatic captors before she loses her heart and possibly her very soul. Vampire Adrian and Lycan Duncan’s goals are entirely different—to mate with the fiery beauty and determine whether her dominant blood is vampire or werewolf. One merely desires her. One will claim her for all eternity. But dark forces turn what begins as a search for identity into a struggle for survival. Choosing love is the only thing that can save her.
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.
