Meg isn’t like the other alien abduction survivors. She doesn’t miss much of anything from her former life—least of all her deadbeat husband. Her Clecanian rescuers gave her a fresh start, and she plans to enjoy it. Being recognized as a mate is not on her agenda. Too bad a grumpy, possessive, and all-kinds-of-sexy alien has other plans for her…Maxu never expected to find his fated mate. But he recognized Meg at first sight. Sadly, she’s not as pleased with the match as he is. She’s guarded in a way he doesn’t entirely understand and pushes him away at every turn. Meg can run, but she soon realizes there’s nowhere to hide—not from a hunter like Maxu. But that doesn’t mean she’ll give in easily. If he wants a happily ever after with her, he’ll have to fight for it. Good thing he’s not above playing dirty. Amazon KU
Rich socialite, inveterate flirt, and walking disaster Tennalhin Halkana can read minds. Tennal, like all neuromodified “readers,” is a security threat on his own. But when controlled, readers are a rare asset. Not only can they read minds, but they can navigate chaotic space, the maelstroms surrounding the gateway to the wider universe. Conscripted into the military under dubious circumstances, Tennal is placed into the care of Lieutenant Surit Yeni, a duty-bound soldier, principled leader, and the son of a notorious traitor general. Whereas Tennal can read minds, Surit can influence them. Like all other neuromodified “architects,” he can impose his will onto others, and he’s under orders to control Tennal by merging their minds. Surit accepted a suspicious promotion-track request out of desperation, but he refuses to go through with his illegal orders to sync and control an unconsenting Tennal. So they lie: They fake a sync bond and plan Tennal’s escape. Their best chance arrives with a salvage-retrieval mission into chaotic space—to the very neuromodifcation lab that Surit’s traitor mother destroyed twenty years ago. And among the rubble is a treasure both terrible and unimaginably powerful, one that upends a decades-old power struggle, and begins a war. Tennal and Surit can no longer abandon their unit or their world. The only way to avoid life under full military control is to complete the very sync they’ve been faking. Can two unwilling weapons of war bring about peace? Amazon AB Apple Books Kobo

Monstrous romantic suspense, action and adventure, some dark moments…and a giggle or two. Getting abducted by a monstrous alien when you’re a kid does something to you. It changes you inside. It turns you from a victim into a survivor. It makes you stronger. I was that kid. Now I’m a woman, and I want a man. I’m not socially adept like normal women. I’ve led a very different life. Surviving in the wild for so long alone made me quite the handful. I thrive on danger—I’m also an adrenaline junkie. The dating site I’ve joined has males who seek the same thrills as me. These males are the toughest and roughest the universe has to offer and the only requirement I demand is, my match must be an Alpha…and a human or a humanoid alien. I couldn’t stomach dating a monster.
Today I woke up to a message—I have a match. The male is an alien. He looks humanoid enough, but he hides behind a mask. Now I’m doubting this will actually work. Will he be man enough for me?
What has he got to hide? Or is he hiding from me? How would he know my bite is most definitely worse than my bark? Amazon KU
Who would fly across a galaxy pursuing love with aliens? 5 human women, that’s who! Bee: One minute I’m saying my goodbye’s to the four other women who crossed the galaxy with me to meet the alien of my dreams in an intergalactic mating exchange program, the next minute my individual pod has broken away from the main ship and I’ve crash landed in the middle of a space nightmare version of the wild, wild west and the alien men there have decided I have been sent from the skies just for them. I joked I wanted a sawdust and grit man, but I think I’ve jinxed myself because these alien men are so much more than I could ever handle. Will I ever get back to civilisation and my promised alien mate? Or will another mysterious alien riding into town on a high-tech bike take it upon himself to save me? Balic: My brothers and I crash landed on a neighbouring planet and somehow ended up saving a human female who first saved us. Now we have all retrieved our bikes from the crashed ship and we’ve split up to find the human females’s four friends. It’s as if I’m being drawn to a certain place where I know only trouble resides. But if my intuition is telling me one of the human females is there, then nothing is going to stop me from riding into that town. With our species outnumbering females 10,000 to 1, I’ll fight any male to save and claim her as my own. The only question is, will she want to be saved by me—I’m not as humanoid looking as the males from this planet? Amazon KU
Gemma Hara is drowning under the weight of her father’s debts. Working herself to the bone, she knows that if she doesn’t pay them off in time, the sadistic creditors will take everything: their home, their respected name, and, worst of all, her two beautiful sisters. To save her family, Gemma agrees to do something reckless: marry a wealthy and mysterious stranger, who offers her a wicked bargain she can’t afford to refuse. However, his bargain comes with one terrifying catch. Because her husband-to-be is a Kylorr. One of the most fearsome alien races in the Four Quadrants, the Kylorr are beastly monsters, all muscle and menace, with powerful wings, depraved cravings, and berserker-like rages. The worst part? They survive on blood. Cold and cruel, Azur of House Kaalium, the High Lord of Laras, demands Gemma as his blood bride. To feed from her. To use her body in whatever way he wishes. For paying off her family’s debts, he expects her complete submission. What neither of them predicts is how his bite doesn’t bring pain—it fills Gemma with more exquisite pleasure than she’s ever known. And as she finds her footing on a strange new planet, the one thing Gemma thought she’d never surrender might be at risk after all. Her heart. Too bad her new husband can’t seem to decide if he wants to break it…or keep it forever. Amazon KU
Xander – Big City is supposedly the place where dreams come true. As someone just trying to live my life, I can tell you, it’s more like a recurring nightmare where dreams get c*ckblocked at every turn. Especially if you’re a supervillain like me. The irony is that I have zero powers, despite coming from purebred villain stock, but try telling that to Big City’s beloved hero, Captain Masculine. This himbo is ruining my research, and if his firepower doesn’t kill me, the sight of him in Lycra surely will. Luckily—or unluckily, in my opinion—my bestie just signed me up for the Bangers dating app and found my perfect match. If this isn’t the start of my villain arc, I don’t know what is. Butch – It’s hard feeling like I have to wear a mask every day—that the only value I bring to the table is the sparkling image others have created for me. Such is the life of being Captain Masculine, Big City’s greatest superhero. This is the existence I was destined for, and I will gladly defend this city against every threat to its people. Except Doctor Antihero. I’ve seen countless villains come and go, but something about Antihero intrigues me more than the usual hero-villain encounters should. It’s because of him that I impulsively signed up for a dating app, hoping a meaningless fling with a local normie will help get my head back in the game. The truth is, what I really want is someone who sees me—the man behind the mask. But that’s a luxury no superhero can afford. Amazon KU

Pilan – I knew that living in the city as an artist would mean getting on the struggle bus. No one just arrives in town, bumps into someone who could make their career, and then finds fame and fortune. Only, for a while, I thought that was exactly what happened. Julian was rich, huge in the art world, and he wanted to open doors for me. Not only that, but he wanted to take care of me, moving me into his penthouse. I was already in too deep when I saw him for what he was, a human who had a thing for young omegas, tossing them aside once they hit the ripe old age of twenty five—or less. I can’t be with someone like him another minute, but my options are limited. Perhaps the Male-Order Mates app will help me find a true mate—as far away from Julian and his ugliness as possible. Even if they aren’t my fated, it will be someone who truly wants a real relationship. Stefano – My brother means well. I know he does. He sees me as a talented chef who’s too shy for his own good. And maybe I am, but he’s gone too far with this one. Signing me up for a Male-Order mate without letting me know is unacceptable. I have no choice but to buy the omega a train ticket back. It isn’t fair not to. But then he bounds off the train, excitement and joy flowing from him, making the town a better place just by his presence, and I find myself sliding the ticket back into my pocket. Maybe my brother was right after all. Maybe I should give this sunshine-filled artist a chance. My bear sure seems to think so. Amazon KU

Plucked out of the Collector’s Pens, auctioned off to a vampire contingent, and sent across the ocean to the Alpha Territories was not exactly how I planned to spend my week. Actually, scratch that. I had planned the first bit. But I was supposed to be sold to the werewolves so I could save my friend from a fate worse than death. Instead, the bloodsuckers have me and so far? It’s not going great. I’ve been shoved into a corset and made to look like an extra on the cast of Bridgerton, all to take part in the Harvest Games—think The Bachelor set in the 1800s, but the men are all vampires, and then add a decidedly terrifying Squid Games element to the mix. No problem. My goal—besides keeping the number of holes in my body to the current norm—is more than surviving. It is escaping the inescapable, finding my way to the werewolf territory, and getting Jordan back. Cue the political strife. Armed with nothing more than a super sharp hairpin, my questionable charm, and an irrational amount of optimism plans to get both me and my bestie out alive are in full swing. Until the General of the Vampire Army and his molten eyes light me on fire and leave me wondering if escape is what I want after all. Maybe one extra set of holes wouldn’t be the worst thing ever.

Some days, an elf can’t get a break. I’m overworked, underpaid and underappreciated, and up to my lavender eyeballs in missing and murdered shifters. To make matters worse, I’ve acquired a dog. Sort of. He’s not actually a dog.

We found him at a crime scene, injured and scared, and I just can’t make myself lock him up for obstruction of justice, even though I probably should. He won’t shift back, so here I am with a dog that isn’t a dog following me everywhere and eating off my plate every time I turn around. The weirdest part is that I’m not sure I want to go back to living without him constantly underfoot. A slow-burn M/M Paranormal Shifter Romance Amazon KU

Eight brothers, all waiting for their soul mates, all born with a gift that makes them unique. A gift that comes with a cost … if they use their power outside of their domain. Coleman Mountain. Matthew Coleman was born with the gift of fire. It dances at his fingertips. He can melt the strongest of metals, making it pliable in his hands, and scorch the earth if he gets angry enough. You’d think having this gift, and with his brothers’, no one could threaten them and no problem could be unsolved. Wrong. How is he supposed to get his soul mate to fall in love with him when she’s too scared to venture out in a storm? He’s going to have to show Alanna that, with him, she can play in the rain. Because no storm, no matter how mighty, can withstand the power of the sun. AmazonKU

Taryn Hopkins and her husband, Oliver, recently bought and moved into their 1st home, an old Victorian in small-town Pennsylvania. But when her airline pilot husband is away, Taryn is visited by a dark-haired male apparition who appears in unlit hallways and eventually, her dreams. Jonah’s so real, she can touch him. He calls her by the name “Odette” and strokes her like his long-lost love. However, soulmates don’t simply travel through time in search of one another in order to reclaim a tragic past. Prophecies that claim she’ll meet her true love, and that he’ll be wearing gold, live only in old black-and-white romantic films. So when Special Agent Asher Renaud shows up on her porch, touting a gold badge, she doesn’t pay it much mind. There’s also the fact that Asher looks exactly like Jonah, but that doesn’t mean she’s Asher’s Odette. There is, however, the issue of why Asher’s there. Apparently, he’s investigating a string of homicides that have been occurring around the country. Homicides he believes Oliver is responsible for. And Taryn can’t say a thing. Because if she tells Oliver’s secret, there’s nothing stopping him from revealing hers. AmazonKU
I need more time to train Tiana, but our enemies won’t wait for the young Sidhe Queen to embrace her full power. At the drop of a hat—seemingly—I became a mother. Not that I’d ever considered the possibility of parenthood. If I had, whatever I came up with would have been far off the mark. Tiana had opinions before she was born. Ones she was vocal about. She inherited my affinity for animals, Blake’s wings, and his Sidhe royal lineage. In Underhill, they hail her as their queen, which has made raising her far more difficult. If one of us says no, she runs to her bevy of honorary aunts and uncles, one of whom is sure to indulge her. Between Tiana’s magic and her position in Sidhe society, I assumed she’d be a target from the moment of her birth. Somehow, a dozen years have passed. I’ve often let my guard down—and kicked myself for my lack of vigilance. Steeped in magic, my wild child gets lost in the moment. I need a few more years to entrain her power. But if I know that, so do our enemies. They will come for her. When it happens, we must be ready. All of us.
DON’T MISS ALL 3 BOOKS IN THE EXCITING SCIFI ROMANCE BADARI GLADIATORS SERIES!
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.
