Sakkar – Memories of betrayal flooded my mind with glimpses of a past I didn’t recall living. I had wronged so many, not just my clan but all of Valose. I was not worthy to walk among them. Not worthy of the female who had breathed life into my ancillary heart. It was just as well. My spirit mate cared not for me. Her downcast gaze, always on her feet or the male with whom she had returned. A male from beyond the stars, and a sworn enemy of Valose. I was determined to redeem myself. To prove that I was worthy of the crown I was bequeathed and return to my rightful place as ruler of Clan Huren. Perhaps, if I was to shed this mantle of disgrace, I would be worthy of her regard. Layla – I was broken in more ways than one. Shame kept my eyes pinned to the ground. Humiliation over who I had once been haunted me. Captivity had a way of putting things in a new perspective. Now that I had seen myself for what I once was, forgiveness felt beyond my reach. Then there was the issue of the male who dogged my heels. A regal male for whom I had endangered other girls to reach. My sense of entitlement had blinded me to everything except my own desires. Now that I had been rescued and returned to the ones I had betrayed, how could I ever look them in the eyes, or feel worthy of the male who followed? AmazonKU

With their relationship and lives hanging in the balance, can Cyburn and Carmela work together to fix the ship and figure out a way to succeed in what seems like a destined-to-fail mission, or will they die trying?

Cassie: I say goodbye to the four other women I’ve travelled across the galaxy with to meet the alien man of my dreams and climb into my pod filled with my belongs. But something hits the ship. My pod is separated from the others, and it crashes onto the planet where I’m supposed to meet my mate. My first impression is I’ve landed in heaven—flowers are everywhere.

It is a truth universally acknowledged that alien pirates in recent acquisition of a hideout must be in want of consorts. I don’t care that the aliens who captured us look more like monsters. I care that their grumpy, Lovecraftian nightmare of a doctor keeps poking and prodding me like a science experiment. And I definitely am not enjoying it, no matter how much he keeps talking about arousal pheromones or whatever. When the aliens plug my brain into some sort of translator thing, the first thing they ask is how to mate a human. I don’t expect my offhand comment about historical romance to be taken literally. Next thing I know, they’re scanning my brain for context and throwing a regency-style ball. When Mr. Definition of Haughty himself asks me to dance, I laugh in his face. Maybe half because I’m terrified of the heat that rushes through me when we touch. I can’t stand how dismissive he is, even if I might have daydreamed about what that tendrilous mouth would feel like between my… lips. AmazonKU

I agreed to help him and told him it was because of the job he offered me. But it was always because of him. I couldn’t leave him. And deep down, I hoped he didn’t want me to. His hot minotaur body creates sparks between us. Will we be able to turn those sparks to fires of love? Or will it bring his whole race down when we crash and burn? AmazonKU
As a human on Protheka , I have three uses. Laborer. Bedsport. Entertainment. …and I’ve just outlived all of them. I’m too defiant to please my male customers. With a broken body and unyielding spirit, the dark elves are ready to rid themselves of me. But just before my miserable existence is ended, a dark elf named Etheron takes me as a servant for his house. Am I saved? Or have I been doomed to a new form of torment? A new toy for my master to break. No. Etheron has got a secret. He likes my fire when no dark elf should tolerate it. Many call the him mad, and maybe he is. But there’s only one thing that tames that bloodlust. Me. I’m the only one that doesn’t fear him. My mate may be dangerous, but he’s no danger to me. I’m different from the rest. Why? Because I’m his. AmazonKU
The dark elves ripped everything from me. Now, I have nothing left to lose. On Protheka, the elves rule through fear. They take away our homes, our families, our freedom. They want to break us. Instead, they’ve created a monster in me. They want to see the world burn? I’ll show them real fire. I don’t expect to survive my attacks on the dark elf buildings. But Alastair surprises me. He’s supposed to be a ruthless Commander. Instead, he shows me one thing I thought was long gone. Love. Our bond isn’t enough in this cruel world, though. Not when Alastair’s father is his overseer. He’ll have to choose. Follow orders or protect me? It’s no contest. Because there’s one thing more important to Alastair than control. One thing that drives him more than his father’s fury. And I’m the only one that has it. My heart. AmazonKU

I learned that he was nothing like my other masters. I was fed. Cared for. Protected. And I showed him what it meant to love. Now, Indus has a choice to make. To follow his heart or his duty? In the end, will he pick me? Or will I always be his dirty little human secret? AmazonKU

Caroline – I was going home when I was abducted by aliens. Then the ship crashed, and I found myself lost and alone on an alien planet. I’ve been running for two days. It seems that aliens of all shapes and sizes are after me simply because I’m… human. And a woman. They say human females are universal breeders, and that we’re extremely valuable.

Now I look into her sparkling green eyes, and I find myself questioning that theory. AmazonKU

Mack Ravage is an outlaw with a bad reputation. I should know. I created him with every breath, wrong decision, and regret I’ve made over the last twenty years. That’s why I shouldn’t want her – the sweet, pretty, young single mom that walks into my clubhouse. I promise her safety. I swear the club will protect her and her daughter. Hell, I even let her stay and gave her a room. She’s too wide-eyed, innocent, trusting, and too damn adorable for her own good. I’m not gonna touch her. I swear I’m gonna keep my distance. And then her eyes rake over me and burn like hot coals over my skin. My Sergeant at Arms Valan thinks she wants him, but I know better. Her eyes only brighten when I’m in the room. Her smile grows broader when I look in her direction. And the heat – it cranks up a good ten degrees when our eyes meet. None of this matters when the past decides to show up at our door. The Ravage Riders won’t be bullied. This is our town. We own it, and we damn well do as we please. Valan? Our enemies? The age difference? Just a few details to hammer out. I’m the president of this club. I take what I want, and I want Charlotte. Nothin’ is standing in my way. AmazonKU

Revenge can be brutal, but nothing is scarier than a witch with a vendetta. After being body jacked by the legacy hunters last year, I’ve tried my best to move forward with my life, to lock the memory behind an indestructible wall. Only, that’s easier said than done. Charles, their leader, is dead and rotting somewhere, yet I still see his face when I close my eyes. Beyond seeing the dead, I’ve also been keeping a secret. ‘Contrary to what I’ve told my husband, I didn’t escape the ritual unscathed. It branded me with The Mark of Caine, the very curse that makes the hunters who captured me ruthless and causes their blood to sing at the thought of ridding the world of the paranormal creatures. For the most part, it’s just a jagged scar. Except, it’s linked me to the hunters. I can track them. I can stop them from transforming, and with it, I’ll get my revenge. Hopefully, Dax will forgive me, but I have to do this. I need the nightmares to stop and the only way that will happen is with every last one of the legacies dead in the ground. Amazon KU

VS Note: This is a LitPRG, which I don’t often cover but this one sounded fun. Here’s the definition of LitPRG from The Emerging Writers.com website: “…an emerging genre of fiction that combines the experience of digital role playing games with traditional narrative plotlines. It weaves a story around a protagonist that consciously immerses themselves in a virtual world to follow the quests and challenges set by the game realm. It is not to be confused with choose-your-own-path storylines or novels that expand the lore of existing RPG games. Instead, imagine you are the spectator to someone playing as their World of Warcraft avatar, witnessing their progression through in-game campaigns while observing their development through visible statistics such as health, agility, strength, or intelligence. “
Barbara Callaghan assumed she’d spend her retirement peacefully, playing bingo and babysitting her grandson. Not fighting giants and wrangling unruly gods. But when she finds herself the victim of a digital scam, trapped as a barbarian brawler in a game world generated from old Earth mythologies, she knows she will either adapt or perish. And Barbara has never been a quitter. To survive this harsh rendering of Midgard, Barbara must win the patronage of one of the Asgardian gods. With the help of her disloyal companion Carwyn, an elven NPC with more warrants out on him than coins in his purse, she seeks out Asgard. She discovers a world in turmoil, with powerful gods at each other’s throats, rogue giants causing chaos at every turn, and dwarven craftsmen at war with one another.
A world that needs the practical, no-nonsense touch of a grandmother—and the occasional brute strength of a barbarian. AmazonKU

J.R.R. Tolkien’s writings on the Second Age of Middle-earth, collected for the first time in one volume complete with new illustrations in watercolor and pencil by renowned artist Alan Lee. J.R.R. Tolkien famously described the Second Age of Middle-earth as a “dark age, and not very much of its history is (or need be) told.” And for many years readers would need to be content with the tantalizing glimpses of it found within the pages of The Lord of the Rings and its appendices, including the forging of the Rings of Power, the building of the Barad-dûr and the rise of Sauron. It was not until Christopher Tolkien published The Silmarillion after his father’s death that a fuller story could be told. [SNIP] Now, adhering to the timeline of “The Tale of Years” in the appendices to The Lord of the Rings, editor Brian Sibley has assembled into one comprehensive volume a new chronicle of the Second Age of Middle-earth, told substantially in the words of Tolkien from the various published texts, with new illustrations in watercolor and pencil by the doyen of Tolkien art, Alan Lee.
Being a forty-something, newly divorced, single mom is getting easier every day. Thankfully, so is being a witch, you know, when monsters and power-hungry sorcerers aren’t trying to kill me.

Now that my nero-craft has been triggered, I’m off to the Iron Grove compound, along with my hot druid boyfriend and his violently awesome sister, to learn magic from the best of the best. Of course, not every druid or tru-craft witch is happy about me adding water magic to the earth, fire, and air magic I already wield. There is even talk of a test they want me to take that sounds about as much fun as an alien probing. No, thank you. I’ll have to rely on allies, old and new if I want to survive the incoming tide of enemies who want me to drown in my own magic. Literally. Amazon Apple Books Kobo

Amara St. Clair is just out for a rare night of fun on the Vegas Strip. But when she discovers her fun-loving side in the Glitter Palace casino, a life-altering altercation with a deadly ancient vampire leaves her lying unconscious in an alley near the famous casino. Doctor, geneticist and genealogy expert Dante Luceres, dedicated to research that will keep his fellow werewolves safe and healthy, is attending a mandatory yearly event of the House of Luceres. Coming across Amara, he saves her life, though vampires and werewolves are forbidden from interfering with each other in the supernatural world. There are dire consequences for interfering with another supe’ s domain, and he expects that soon both the vampires and the werewolves will be after them, but he can’ t leave the beautiful, vivacious little human to suffer alone. Drawn to each other, the pair must hide from the world. But with everyone against them, including Dante’ s clan and an evil vampire hellbent on having Amara for his own, how can they find a path to a shared future… and true happiness? AmazonKU
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.
