Can a passionate woman awaken a frozen warrior? Sara’s life is turned upside down when she is kidnapped by brutal aliens. Even after she’s rescued by an Imperial ship, she can’t return to Earth. The only person who seems concerned about her future is the icy alien warrior who interrogates her. He’s rigid, arrogant, and frighteningly intelligent, but she discovers a hidden layer of passion beneath that frozen exterior – one she longs to explore. As Senior Advisor to the Kaisarian Emperor, it’s Tanaca’s job to know everything about everyone – evaluating their goals and motives with cool, untainted logic. But the vibrant human female they rescue from an illegal slave ring defies his usual approach – she’s smart, hot-tempered, and passionate enough to awaken feelings he has long since put aside. The logical solution is to retrieve any useful information from her, and then send her somewhere where she’ll be safe, but for the first time in his life, logic fails him. He wants her to stay with him. Forever. But can he allow himself to be driven by something as untrustworthy as emotion? AmazonKU
The Army shuffled Staff Sergeant Gage Austin off to a menial desk job at the Pentagon as hush money… as if he’d admit to anyone he’s a cyborg. Society abhors cyborgs, so Gage keeps to himself and suffers the daily humiliation of an extensive security scan with stoic fortitude. He’s a soldier down to his core processor and would willingly give his all—red blood and blue lubricant—for the land he loves. As such, he accepts the task to locate and safely retrieve missing Pentagon assistant Audra Muir. Yet as sparks sizzle between them, Gage questions whether he’s delivering her to salvation… or doom. Audra Muir has spent years pilfering secrets about corrupt government oversight of the cybernetics industry under the guise of her job at the Pentagon. As she leaves for breast cancer treatment, she happens upon earth-shattering intel. Determined to hand this information over to the people who will wage that particular war, she battles her own personal recovery and rages against a society that can make a cyborg, but can’t save women from breast cancer. Yet when Gage Austin kisses her, that anger dissipates, replaced by a passion that just might deliver her flagging faith in humanity… and herself. Gage and Audra find peace from their own inner demons within the heat of each other’s arms. But defeating the evil that is ruining the cybernetics industry is a far bigger enemy, and requires the force of a secret band of rebels and their hidden cyborg army.
On a planet infected by ice, the power to create more is the last thing anyone needs…
JASYN is an explorer with a talent for reaching for the stars and upending weather systems with her emotions. She spends her days dreaming of adventure, hiding her power of ice, and definitely not thinking about what it’d feel like to be the snow on her best friend’s cheek. ATALANTA is an archer and a recluse with a skill for making Jasyn’s heart glow as bright as a filament-fruit. They’ve lived in each other’s orbit most of their lives, but she’s just as magical and mysterious to Jasyn as all the galaxies under the Seven Suns. When their world is forcibly upturned, a journey of discovery begins. Venturing across their ice and blight-infested home-world, they discover the solution to their out of balance world lies in the skies. Of course, with a tyrant Ice King intent on closed sky-borders and Jasyn’s demise, they have to survive long enough to get there, first. Under The Ice Skies is the first leg of the journey in the Jasyn and The Astronauts series — a sapphic, swords & sorcery in space reimagining of Jason and the Golden Fleece — an adventure fuelled by wonder and good intentions, while navigating weather fronts formed of feelings along the way.

I’m drawn to the refugee, an alien drifter from a system far away. He’s thick with muscles, handsome for an alien, and for whatever reason, I’m drawn to him. He’s not the type Mother would approve of. But somehow, I don’t care. While I do my job on the space station, I seek time with him, hoping to figure out this magnetic draw we have.
There’s always a hitch and this one is a doozy. Am I able to cut through the bureaucracy and discover the truth behind this drifter’s past? Will he be my one despite it all? AmazonKU

Long lost Egyptian gods and goddess. Killer curses. Nettie, Caden, Gaston, and the rest of her friends from the Society for the Exploration of the Unexplainable have survived deadly aliens from the skies, murderous mermaids, and far more.

Then a rogue Runner, one of the alien beings who work for the Society, is discovered within Gaston’s mansion with murderous intent. And the Society claims that none of their Runners are missing. An attack by creatures and deities out of Egypt’s past, and no support from the Society’s headquarters, leaves the group in London on their own.

I thought the Bride Games were my way out. But now I’m afraid they may simply be another cage. With new rules in place, The Alien Bride Lottery is drawn from willing participants only. But the Khanavai are beginning to figure out that means only the most desperate human women enter. Including me. I’ll do anything to get away from my overbearing Mafia family and their Machiavellian plans for me. At least, that’s what I believe, right up until the moment the Games Administrator and host, Vos Klavoii, tells me he wants to claim me as his mate. Talk about jumping from the frying pan into the fire—I’ve been watching the Bride Games all my life, and Vos Klavoii’s machinations are legendary. I’m beginning to figure out that no matter what I do, I’m going to have to fight to be in charge of my own destiny. AmazonKU
NOTE: The events in this book occur before the events in Fighting for the Alien Bride Lottery, Book 12 of the Khanavai Bride Games series. I meant for him to steal me away. I never intended to allow him to steal my heart. When the Alien Bride Lottery revised its rules to allow human women who wanted to marry aliens, it was supposed to change everything—no more unwilling brides, only eager participants. That was the theory, anyway. But when my best work frenemy signs me up for the Lottery without my knowledge and my name is actually drawn, no one cares that it wasn’t my choice—not Earth officials, and certainly not Vos Klavoii, the Games Director who’s determined to make sure his people survive. Besides, Klavoii believes a surprise contestant now and then will improve his show’s ratings, and that’s what he truly cares about. So I do the only thing I can think of: bribe a hot Khanavai pilot to sneak me off Station 21. Now I’m in a race for my freedom—but I’m beginning to think that gorgeous alien might be the biggest threat to my independence yet. AmazonKU
A human starting over light years from home….Accepting a job on Spire Station sounded great in theory. Now that I’m on an enormous alien space station with no humans in sight, I’m questioning the sanity of that choice. But it’s not all bad. When my best friend Mezli tricks me into using a pleasure sim, I find an unexpected connection with Breks, the intriguing alien running the sim. He’s everything I’d want in a partner—charming, empathetic, and so damn sexy. The only problem? He hides behind a holo and refuses to let me see his true form. For all I know, he could be a sentient ooze, but I’m too far gone to care. I want him no matter what he looks like. Now I just have to find a way to prove it. An alien desperate to forget his heartbreak…When I took a job at SimTech Suites, I’d planned to use pleasure sims to escape any thoughts of my ex. However, a far more enticing source of distraction shows up—a purple-haired human named Fina with the body of a goddess and shy, delightful wit to match. Too bad I’m nothing like the attractive holo I use for my job. I’m a seladin with sharp teeth, brutal claws, and menacing features that terrify most aliens. Her uneasy reaction after our chance meeting out on the station only confirms that I can never show her my true form. No matter how desperate I am to make her mine. AmazonKU
I was saved from being food. I’m not sure being a toy is much better. The Gren have taken over our planet, and I am one of the lucky few protected from being hunted by them. In exchange, I’ve been taken Tribute. It would be better to just label me what I am.
A body to break. But as I am dumped before the aliens intent on using me, there is only one I see. And with the way he’s staring at me, it can only mean one thing…I’m about to be his. AmazonKU

Diesel isn’t like the others. He needs me. Diesel – I have lost many brothers in this war…(more blurb on ebook seller’s page…) AmazonKU
The endless stream of wounded warriors flowing through my ward has taken all the fun out of dating soldiers — until Xinnick ignored all the rules, muscled his way into my life, and changed everything. He says I’m his, and the more time I spend with him, the more I know he’s right.

But Charity brings all her somewhat-inconsistent abilities to bear in the investigation, even calling on Milo, the spaniel familiar, to nose around. But it’s the Tarot that cuts through the static toward a culprit who’s definitely not an ex-anything. It’s someone who opens a whole new kit and caboodle of lies.

Rita: Why didn’t I see this coming? As a psychic, I know about the future of other people. Just not myself, apparently. What else could explain ending up at a shifter resort right in the middle of a massive heatwave? And by that, I mean shifter heat. It seems like everyone at this resort is hot for their mate. Except for my mate. The male dragon hates psychics, witches and lots of other humans with paranormal powers. When he finds out I’m his mate? No way does he want me! I don’t want to want the judgemental dragon with the muscular chest and sizzling glare either. Is it possible to fight fate? Gabriel LaRoche: Seriously? A psychic? I don’t know what I did in this life for fate to treat me so cruelly! I don’t like humans. So naturally my mate is a human psychic. Could anything be worse? It turns out that it can. I can’t resist the fiery little woman. She makes my teeth hurt from clenching my jaw. Her smile has my heart racing, my dragon itching and fighting me at every turn, wanting our mate. Has anyone ever fought fate and won with hunger riding them, driving them crazy? I’m not sure but when Rita vanishes, I know that she needs me. I feel her. Feel her fear. I will find my mate. Even if it kills me. AmazonKU

With a deep sigh, Merry leaves Ula to introduce herself to her final alpha and settles down in the club to wait. Merry feels a tingle on her skin and studiously avoids looking to her right where her own alphas are enjoying their evening. Of course, they didn’t know they were hers, but she did.

Hello again! It’s me, Evanora Dark, Buttermilk Bay’s newest sage of house staging and recently discovered unalived whisperer (that’s ghost-talker to you lay folk). Business is booming, a certain silver-fox contractor named Cary Mann is hot in pursuit (wink-wink), and me and my bestie Fab are as tight as ever.

But the more I get to know her ghost, the more I realize things are never as cut-and-dried as they seem. Not life, not love, not relationships… And certainly not murder!

The problem with being half wolf shifter? No one wants to be my mate. Humans stay away from me. Some say I’m weird, and others keep their distance for unknown reasons.

Seeking adventure, I met the man who would turn my world upside down. I have always been interested in the paranormal. Every summer, I went on a small adventure looking for evidence that the paranormal existed, whether it was ghosts, psychics, or witches. This year, my goal is to find out whether shifters are real or just a myth. I ended up at the Forest Resort in Ivy Springs, Colorado. The resort was run by billionaires who hated shifters and wanted them all destroyed because of an ancient legend. Not truly believing that shifters existed, I ended up under the protection and in the arms of a bear shifter. Noah Williams was a bear shifter dedicated to protecting the shifters from the hunters that roamed the area. His life was busy between protecting the shifters and the large ranch that he owned outside of the mountain town. He wasn’t pleased when I entered the scene and turned his life upside down. Determined to protect me from myself, a rogue shifter, and hunters, Noah appointed himself my guardian. I didn’t know that this man I was quickly falling for had a secret – a secret that would change my life. 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’.
NOTE: I’m doing my best to avoid listing anything generated from use of AI but it’s sometimes tricky to detect from the resources I have available. As far as covers go, I list the Amazon cover. I won’t feature a cover in my weekly promo for this post if I believe or suspect it was done with AI.
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.
