Mylo Monroe cares about three things: the library he runs, his brothers, and remaining single so he can continue his carefree lifestyle. But much to his chagrin, there’s one woman he can’t get out of his head no matter how hard he tries. Samantha Rodriguez is an award-winning photographer and has spent her illustrious career traveling the world capturing breathtaking moments on film. She was certain her life would never change, but when her mother’s Alzheimer’s worsens, she hangs up her camera and travels to her hometown of Sudbury, New Hampshire, so she can remain at her mom’s side. Luckily, her best friend lives in Sudbury, but that friend is also married to the brother of the hottest one-night stand Sam has ever had. Since her divorce, Sam has vowed to remain single, but when she’s unexpectedly invited to her ex-husband’s wedding, she enlists Mylo as her pretend boyfriend for the event. He plays his role all too well, making them both question whether there’s more to this heat between them than a casual fling. Meanwhile, as her mother’s condition worsens, a nefarious local cop from Sam’s past threatens to expose Mylo and his brothers for what they truly are, making a happily ever after seem impossible. How can she care for her mother and develop a relationship with Mylo when both could be taken from her at any moment? AmazonKU
I married a dead war hero. His name was Fire Lieutenant Byric Sandstone—an extremely wealthy Hyrrokin landowner, with a complicated estate. Obviously, I’m not really his widow. It’s a technicality, on paper so I could bypass immigration and perform my duties. Everyone but the lawyer who forged the signature thinks I’m really Byric’s chosen bound, but my real job is to care for his elderly grandmother and his three-headed wulver. I love my cushy life on Tarvos. One night, the front door to the mansion bursts open. A disheveled, wild-eyed and monstrous Lieutenant Sandstone returns home, having escaped from his prison cell behind enemy lines. Wait, my husband isn’t dead? “Who the hell are you?” he rasps. “Your bound,” I whimper from underneath the sheets. Oh no. How is this going to work out? AmazonKU
I’m willing to take any job to pay the bills. The alternative, returning to Earth, is not an option. The production company filming the Solar Snowfall movie right in the middle of my adopted town of Arixxia Fields is willing to pay me gobs of money to do hair and makeup for the cast. How bad can the gig be? The leading male, the galaxy’s hunkiest star, is also the galaxy’s biggest ass. It’s a stroke of luck when, instead of the drunken, arrogant, narcissist, I get to work on his stunt double—the equally hunky super nice guy who can’t take his gaze off me. Too bad our fiery attraction is forbidden. If I want to keep my salon and be able to pay for unimportant luxuries like food and lodging, Verik and I will have to keep our relationship secret. How hard can that be in this small town where everyone knows everything about me down to my bra size? (Since everyone else knows, it’s 36C.) AmazonKU

When level-headed Francie arrives in Roswell, New Mexico, for her college roommate’s UFO-themed wedding—complete with a true-believer bridegroom—she can’t help but roll her eyes at all the wide-eyed talk of aliens, which obviously don’t exist. Imagine her surprise, then, when she is abducted by one. Odder still, her abductor is far from what the popular media have led her to expect, with a body like a tumbleweed and a mass of lightning-fast tentacles. Nor is Francie the only victim of the alien’s abduction spree. Before long, he has acquired a charming con man named Wade, a sweet little old lady with a casino addiction, a retiree with a huge RV and a love for old Westerns, and a UFO-chasing nutjob who is thoroughly convinced the alien intends to probe them and/or take over the planet. But the more Francie gets to know the alien, the more convinced she becomes that he’s not an invader. That he’s in trouble and she has to help him. Only she doesn’t know how—or even what the trouble is. Part alien-abduction adventure, part road trip saga, part romantic comedy, The Road to Roswell is packed full of Men in Black, Elvis impersonators, tourist traps, rattlesnakes, chemtrails, and Close Encounters of the Third, Fourth, and Fifth kind. Can Francie, stuck in a neon green bridesmaid’s dress, save the world—and still make it back for the wedding?

When I wished to leave, I didn’t expect for my wish to be granted. I wished on a shooting star. Little did I know, that shooting star was an alien ship and they stole me away. Once I was aboard the ship, I was told that I had to work off my debt. The debt that I accrued for them granting my wish. No matter how much I panicked or argued, they would not back down and paired me with… him. Zetaka, head of security on the ship. He was huge with sharp claws and teeth, and a nasty attitude to match. I couldn’t stand being around him, his rippling muscles, his delicious scent, or his cowboy getup, but I was forced to work with him. I had to admit that he was one of the most attractive beings I had ever seen, and the longer I was with him the more his rough exterior cracked to reveal that he wasn’t as bad as I thought. Sometimes he was even thoughtful, but that didn’t change the fact that he was rude and abrasive the rest of the time. Finding out he could use other species’ DNA to evolve and adapt was a shock, and I couldn’t help but wonder what would happen if ours mixed. Nothing could ever happen between us, though. Not only was he now my boss, he was also an alien and I kind of hated him. I just had to do my time and get out of there. If only they’d quit sending us on missions alone together. Was I really going to give in to my strange desire for the alien lizard cowboy, or could I keep my hands to myself and finish my assignment? AmazonKU
I’ve read enough science fiction and fantasy novels to know that I’m in big trouble when I wake up in the cargo hold of a spaceship with several other women—and unfortunately, the aliens who abducted us are neither nice nor attractive. My luck finally seems to turn around when different aliens show up to rescue us. Although I’m not really sure it’s a rescue. Because I end up in the arms of an unfriendly giant who promptly separates me from my friends.
With one look, everything changed. Her eyes met mine from under long lashes. Even at such a distance, I knew instantly. I would rescue her, or die trying. I would bring her clan of women to the aerie. The outlaw Vak’ki would die under the blade of my nakav. Every last one of them. No longer would the Sen’ki speak the name Arctur with anything but respect. And the woman with the spirit that burned like a flame would be mine. AmazonKU

VS Note: This week I’m featuring COLONY UNDER SIEGE. I really enjoy combining medical subplots with the scifi romance! I wrote this one early in the pandemic, as it was the only story my Muse had the energy to tell at the time. There’s a second book in the series now too, with several more planned. Each can be read as a standalone however.
Newly graduated from a prestigious interstellar medical school, Dr. Saffia Mandell has been assigned to the Haven Two colony on the galaxy’s outer rim as the only doctor for some 2000 human residents. She’s counting the days until her five years there is up, trying to adjust to rural living after life in the crowded Inner Sectors and fighting her attraction to Chief Ranger Micah Navonn. She’s dreading the upcoming tourist season when the rich and pampered will descend on the planet for the scenic wonders and novel sports opportunities and no doubt inundate her little clinic but the colony depends on the seasonal income to survive.
As the senior official for his people, the Calinurra, the indigenous inhabitants of Haven Two, Micah enforces the treaty, regulates the tourist permits, patrols the forests and resists his fascination with Dr. Mandell. He never expected to be involved with a human woman and doesn’t want to believe in the concept of a fated mate. He wants to keep his life simple and isn’t ready for any long term commitment. Besides Saffia keeps proclaiming she’ll be leaving when her appointment is up in four and a half years so why should he risk his heart?
Then a ship arrives unexpectedly carrying a very ill little girl and soon the deadly virus is spreading through Haven Two. The colony authorities are desperate to cover up the problem to preserve the all-important tourist season and Saffia and Micah have to work together to battle the outbreak, the local administration and their undeniable feelings for each other.
Can the colony survive? And will Micah and Saffia be able to move past their fears about entanglements to act on the mutual attraction?

The last thing I expected to see today was John, our timeline agent–or whatever he was calling himself these days–in our hometown. Millie, my best friend and time traveling buddy, was thrilled. I was not. John claimed that he needed our help to keep the timeline from falling apart. Why us, you might wonder? He claimed we were good at knitting and asking questions. And where did we have to go? To Dry Gulch, South Dakota. In freaking 1880. Even John admitted that it was a fairly lawless mining town where the ratio of men to women was 200 to 1. Okay, that part sounded fine, but no Internet? Poor facilities? And the food? Would it be something the men shot that day? Like rattlesnake? But, of course, Millie, who had a slight crush on our time traveler thought it would be fun. Our assignment seemed simple enough. Find out what or who was behind the supposedly haunted Red Lantern Saloon. Since John gave us a bag of gold dust and a trunk full of period clothes, I guess it wouldn’t be all that bad.

The killer is thirsty for more victims, and the bloodless trail soon leads Della and Mason to a group that believes drinking blood is the key to immortality. To catch the culprit of such an intimate crime, the agents will have to get close. Mason’s already lost one partner; he’s not ready to risk Della as bait. But sometimes justice requires a sacrifice.

Greid – I may hate everyone, but you can only take being alone for so long. Sooner or later, you get desperate enough to visit a human cult that worships your species as greater beings in the hope of finding a new roommate to fill the lonely void. We’ve all been there… right? I swear I was only looking for a roommate. Just someone to watch TV and eat dinner with. Nothing… romantic. No way. But when I see all these humans gazing at me with open adoration and blatant lust and other things that make me wildly uncomfortable, I realise what a terrible mistake this is. Until I spot the one human woman in the group who is definitely not pleased to see me. In fact, she’s scowling at me. She looks really, really annoyed. I’m kind of into it. Beryl – I’m not a true follower of The Order of the Greater Beings. I don’t worship the demiurgus—the monstrous species that lives alongside humans. I definitely do not want to become a demiurgus mate. So when one shows up at the cult’s compound—the first in the entire twenty-five years I’ve been flying under the radar here—I want to make sure he knows that I think he’s a total creep for taking advantage of worryingly adoring humans this way. Until I realise… I don’t think that’s why he’s here. He’s kind of awkward. And anxious. And wildly out of his depth.

Now I’m navigating the outside world, and I’m roommates with a big, awkward demiurgus called Greid who lives in his pyjamas, watches a ridiculous amount of TV and is high most of the time. He’s also the sweetest guy I’ve ever met, and he’s funny and generous and easy to talk to. But I’ve spent my entire life making sure I didn’t get sucked in to the cult’s fervent worship of the demiurgus—there’s no way I’m going to fall in love with him. Right? 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.
