He wanted, and ‘the hunt’ was on—even if he had to go through Cory to claim her as his mate.

DOGGONE ALIEN LOVE (INTERDICTED WORLD BOOK ONE) by Loretta Johns
You’d think crashlanding on an alien planet would be horrible, especially one the life pod cheerfully told you was interdicted due to a deadly contagion. Great, huh?

Hooray for me! Only it doesn’t quite work out that way. The crash could very well turn out to be the best thing that’s ever happened to me. It turns out that not only are there aliens living on this world but also that there’s more to the ‘deadly pathogen’ story. As for dying alone? Not only will the alien who found me not let me or the pup die, but the blue and lavender striped god of manliness has a singular focus: to make me his. Doggone Alien Love previously appeared in a much shorter form as part of the charity anthology, Claimed Among the Stars.

MY MATCHED MONSTER by Rena Marks
My punishment starts today. Refusing marriage isn’t acceptable, not in my world—separated from the rest of Earth by the large stone walls of our own community.

The only aliens I know are the Britonians, and they’re beautiful, physiques like Greek gods, but with gold skin. Not tan. A true shade of gold. Not horrific, imagined purple monsters. When I wake, the beautiful gold-skinned aliens who are our benefactors enter me in the Match Program. A chance to get away from Earth for six months while I heal. I’ll be mated, sure, but I’m assured he’s noble, fair, and doesn’t expect anything from me. He’s just honored to have a brave “female” to take back home.

I’m standing in a hotel room on the other side of the world. A plane ticket sent along with a mysterious letter got me here. I’m staring at four half-brothers I never even knew existed, and a father I thought was dead. My father wants to become bosom buddies with us—the reason—he wants us to help him hunt down and kill vampires. I’m guessing he’s been preparing us for this our whole lives. That’s the reason all of us were left in different orphanages across the world and trained by monks from a young age in different martial arts and weaponry. Any sane person would laugh out loud at the absurd notion of vampires existing. A few months ago I would have been one of them. Had it not been for the strange changes occurring in my body and mind. Now, I’m thirsty for two things—knowledge—and blood. Am I a vampire too? If the answer is yes, does this mean my brothers and father are also vampires? Because the strange things I’m witnessing in this hotel room, make me think they have a different darkness inside them. Am I going to agree to my father’s request? If I can get answers—hell yes.

When a factory explosion rocks the wreath-lined streets of Tenebra City a mere few weeks before Christmas, you, a reporter for The Tenebra Times, are forced to work gruelingly long hours to cover the fallout. All you want to do is get back to your candy making hobby to fully immerse yourself in the cheer of the Christmas season, so when the article is finally published, you feel so relieved that you could almost sing a Christmas carol or two. Unfortunately, your writing isn’t up to the high standards of a certain mob boss whose gang is at the center of the allegations surrounding the hijinks. When he calls you a mere six days before your favorite holiday to demand a rewrite by Christmas Day, you get the sneaking suspicion it might take more than a few punch bowls full of eggnog to get through his twisted version of a season’s greetings. Except there’s something about the elusive G. R. Inch that piques your interest. Nobody knows what he looks like, but the sweet tooth in you can’t resist craving the man whose pleasantly grating voice reminds you of the scrape of rock candy against your tongue… You can’t help but feel there might be more to him than what the media depicts. Even if he is rather mean. AmazonKU

SANTA’S CHRISTMAS WISH by Maggie Tideswell
Who says Santa can’t have a Christmas wish of his own? Santa’s love life is a mess – and he has one last chance to get it right. A girl asks Santa for a man for her Christmas stocking. When prompted, he admit’s that he has a Christmas wish of his own – a baby. Coincidence? Not a chance! Audra doesn’t know she has a history with this particular Santa of the Sleigh. His name is Ross Shepard and Santa is his job title. Their association comes from way back, from a time when mists and snow covered most of the world. Winter, when the snow was deeper and food scarce, was a miserable time of the year for everyone. In a snowy valley, Ross and his brother devised a magickal contraption they called a sleigh. Santa’s job was to deliver a little Yuletide cheer to everyone on the night before the Yule log cracks. But before Ross could take the job as Santa, he had to find the right woman to support his new venture and share eternity with him. That year, before the maiden voyage in the sleigh and before the Yule log cracked, Ross’ wife had to be in the family way. Audra agreed to marry him and to become part of the Santa project, but she absolutely refused to become immortal. She was put in charge of the exact form the cheer would take. In the midst of the excitement to get the Project Santa off the snow, Audra and Ross knew they were having a baby. Tragedy struck when Audra died in childbirth, her baby with her. Ross searched for her through the ages, always with the same result – they fell in love, married, and then Audra died giving birth. Now, in the present, Ross has one last chance to convince Audra to be with him forever, immune to death. 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.
