Talinn was a genetically engineered senior soldier in his Badari Warrior pack until unscrupulous laboratory guards faked his death and sold him into slavery in the galaxy’s hinterlands. Purchased by a nomadic warlord and forced to fight in games for the amusement of the crowds, Talinn has endured through sheer strength of will. He sees no possibility of escape but a Badari never gives up until the goddess calls him to the afterlife. Bailey Kingsmere was a talented and ambitious entertainer on an interstellar cruise liner when her ship was destroyed in an accident. She escaped in a defective cryonic lifepod, which eventually drifted out of the Sectors entirely and crashed on a primitive planet. Superstitious locals decide to place her in the arena as a prize for a lucky gladiator. Talinn needs only one look to know Bailey is his fated mate. He’ll do whatever it takes to rescue her from the other fighters and claim her as his prize but how can he ensure her safety thereafter? Since he’s not human and has alien reptilian predator DNA which gives him extra capabilities, will Bailey accept him as a mate? And can they ever escape their desperate situation and find a way to freedom? TALINN is the third book in the Badari Gladiators Series and can be read as a standalone. A steamy romance with fated mates this story was initially published in the Claimed Among the Stars Anthology (no longer available), but has been expanded here with an additional 15,000 words.

This one heads to the Port Custodial office and asks for help from the military custodian on duty.

And when he figures out what she really wants…well. Surely this is a dream come true. Amazon KU
When technical failures force us to abandon The Oasis, I end up alone in an escape pod with a dashing Zivonian warrior named Raza. If our situation was bad to start with, it gets a whole lot worse when the pod malfunctions, separating us from the others and sending us hurtling toward the surface of the planet where we’d hoped to settle. The last thing Raza says to me before we crash is, “I’ll protect you.” But it’s only after we emerge from the wreckage that I realize how deeply he meant those words. With the two of us lost together on a strange new planet, he considers it his duty to act as my bodyguard—and when an alien creature’s attack leaves me blinded, I have to accept his help, no matter how much I hate relying on anyone. As we journey across the landscape together, though, something changes between us. I’m developing feelings for my protective alien bodyguard, every touch awakening a fierce desire within me. But can I find the courage to admit I’m falling for him? Or will the threats that loom on the horizon kill us both before I get a chance? AmazonKU
The Drexian warrior is brooding and mysterious–and he’s claimed me as his tribute. When I don’t marry his nephew, I have no idea I’m still promised to Zoran’s clan. Imagine my shock when the dark and imposing alien informs me that he will be taking me as his tribute bride–and taking me back to the Drexian home world with him. The silver fox warrior isn’t like the brash young Drexians on the station. He’s intense and serious and a bit scary, and I can’t imagine being his bride. But it appears I have no choice. I’m bound to him, which means my life will be as the mate of an alien I barely know and can’t imagine falling for. Life on the Drexian home world is nothing like I expected, and I soon discover that our betrothal is not set in stone–or welcome by some in his clan. As political scheming and family secrets put us both in grave danger, can we learn to trust each other or will we be torn apart forever? AmazonKU

He was losing his way. Failing. His diagnostic continually running in the back of his mind told of unknown issues it couldn’t identify. That was a problem. He was Cyborg. They knew everything, their onboard computer embedded in their brain made sure of that. It recorded everything since his birthing. But not this time and not for a while. Nothing seemed logical anymore. He’d fixed his parts as best he could a long time ago, using materials from other Cyborgs that he’d found dead and not able to revive. It was a reminder they were not infallible. Nothing seemed designed for him on this world and that was something else that was illogical unless his data was flawed too. It probably was….Parts didn’t work well, and he couldn’t fix them. Time streams were missing. He couldn’t remember how he got there or why. ..(more blurb on ebook seller page…) Amazon KU
Griz. He had little control when stirred. A Cyborg with his emotions turned off that still had control issues. It was his way. His DNA saturated with Bear. Grizzly, they’d told him. It’s why he’d picked his name. Always just below the surface. Ready to go to war. It made him one of the best on the battlefield. Undefeated. Their fight never truly over. Burying his emotions was the only way he could function. But that wasn’t working around the female. She was bleeding through his blocks. One sniff of her scent, her essence on the air and he wanted. The Bear in him wanted out. Wanted to Mate. Clawed at him to be free and that wasn’t going to be a good thing. He’d been watching the female on and off for three days. ..(more blurb on ebook seller page…) Amazon KU

Baldiri Trod already has a mate: Qwi’kikki, the brilliant Ska’hian Engineer who is working with him to adapt Ska’hian tech to Alliance vessels, but when a visit with their manufacturing partner K’ren Daku leads him to cross paths with a charming solaran woman named Cathy, Trod’s feelings are torn.

Would she be willing to accept a relationship with him if it meant she had to share his divided affections?

Could she remain sane while she heard a voice in her head—while on another planet a Warrior wondered if he could still fight, when seeing visions behind his eyes, both after caught in terrific explosions. Antimatter had been controlled and was used for power of the spaceship that the scientist Nina remembered, when she woke up after the explosion. But being the only survivor of the crash, and deep in enemy territory was not her major problem. It was the voice on her head and the double vision in her eyes. As a Warrior who had spent his entire life fighting and protecting others, he had gone deep into enemy territory to cover the insertion of the technical people who needed to find out information on a new weapon. The explosion took out everything, all his people, all the buildings and even the ground, leaving a round hole in the ground. It also left him with a strange voice in his head and double vision of sights he didn’t understand. Had they both gone insane from the contact of Antimatter on two different worlds so far apart they weren’t even on each other’s star chart? Amazon Apple Books Kobo

He’s obviously from a predator species, all deadly fangs and furious determination. Now he drags me across the icy surface of the planet where his hit went wrong. Went wrong because of me.

*************************BRIEF BREAK BEFORE THE FANTASY/PNR BOOKS!***************************************
VS: In honor of the release of book three in the Badari Gladiator Series, here’s book one KYDEN from the backlist (and don’t forget book two RENNYR as well!)
Kyden is the top ranked gladiator in the Five Systems but he’s hardly there by choice. Unscrupulous guards faked his death in the lab where he was created and sold him into slavery in the galaxy’s hinterlands. He has no idea where his home is or how many years have passed since he was condemned to a life of endless combat. Kill or be killed is the rule and a Badari never gives up. He’ll fight to stay alive until the Badari goddess sees fit to decree his death.
Elara Vasclavian is the daughter of a senator, as far removed from the life of a gladiator as a noblewoman can be until through the machinations of a political enemy, she ends up in terrible jeopardy. Abducted and given to a group of drunken gladiators for their amusement the night before the games, Elara vows to put up a fight but there’s no real hope of saving herself. Until Kyden steps in, responding to the goddess’s commandment to protect those who are smaller and weaker. And discovers she’s his fated mate.
Rescued, Elara returns to her life of privilege but she can’t forget the man who saved her life. The gulf between their places in the Five Systems is unbridgeable, no matter how much Kyden longs for even a glimpse of her in the arena audience. No matter how much she feels the pull to be by his side. As matters stand, they cannot be together…Or can they?
KYDEN is the first book in a new series, spun off from my ongoing Badari Warriors series. Kyden is a Generation Five Badari whereas the main characters in the long running series are from a later time and are Generation Eight. This new series stands alone and you don’t have to have read any of the other books to enjoy this one. I couldn’t resist the temptation to tell a few other Badari stories, set in the galaxy’s Hinterlands, and who can resist gladiators?

Help comes in all shapes and sizes, and for Kingston and Skylar, it comes in the form of dreams, sinister whispers, and the cutest little girl you ever did see. Too bad she’s dead and has her sights set on Skylar to be the perfect playmate in her afterlife. Skylar has been waiting so patiently for his shot with Kingston, but the gentle giant has no idea how to handle the vivacious man. While Kingston and Skylar learn more about themselves and each other, things unseen are brewing from their visit to Beckoning Pond months ago. It’ll take a little—or a lot—of help from their families, both of origin and by choice, to free them from a spirit’s temper tantrum and bring peace once again to the beachtown of Willowhope. In Whispering Fields, Kingston and Sky finally get their HEA, but it won’t make sense without first reading Beckoning Pond. The Secrets of Willowhope are fun and lighthearted reads, and like all Sammi Cee books, heartwarming. There’s only a touch of creepy in the books in this series, so if you’re looking for horror, I can promise you, this isn’t it. Amazon KU

Halloween is supposed to be a night for safe scares and harmless tricks, not terror … or romance. College student Colin agrees to take his little cousin trick-or-treating, anticipating nothing worse than having to shepherd a bunch of sugar-crazed third-graders and a poorly-trained puppy. When the kids run ahead to peek into the local supposedly-haunted house, it seems like a harmless bit of mischief until the puppy crawls through a basement window and is lost. Colin promises to get her back. The place may be dark and creepy, but it can’t really be haunted. When the house turns out to be occupied by an attractive man who is willing to let him in, it seems like a lucky break … at first. Secrets. Sometimes Cat feels like he has nothing but secrets. No family, no freedom, not even a real name. Colin seems nice, but Cat doesn’t owe him anything, not when the risk of punishment for helping a stranger is so high.

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.
