VS Note: Hard scifi release of note, not a romance. I really enjoy his books and I always love the generation ship trope so I had this pre-ordered.

But all is not well. The probes that they’ve sent ahead to gather the data needed to establish any kind of settlement aren’t responding, and the information they have received has presented more questions than answers. It’s a time when the entire crew should be coming together to solve the problem, but science officer Sheila Jackson can’t get people to listen. With the finish line in sight, a group of crewmembers want an end to the draconian rules that their forebearers put in place generations before. However, security force officer Mark Rector and his department have different plans. As alliances form and fall, Governor Jared Pantel sees only one way to bring Voyager’s citizens together and secure his own power: a full-scale colonization effort. Yet, he may have underestimated the passion of those working for the other side…Meanwhile, a harsh alien planet awaits that might have its own ideas about being colonized. A battle for control brews, and victory for one group could mean death for them all.

VS Note: Listed in superhero romance. LGBTQ. The blurb for book one states they aren’t actually superheroes but there do seem to be scifi elements.

*************************BRIEF BREAK BEFORE THE FANTASY/PNR BOOKS!***************************************
VS: This week I’m going to highlight KYDEN book one in my Badari Gladiator series. I’ve always been fascinated by gladiators and who doesn’t love a scifi romance featuring them?
Kyden is the top ranked gladiator in the Five Systems but he’s hardly there by choice. Unscrupulous guards faked his death in the lab where he was created and sold him into slavery in the galaxy’s hinterlands. He has no idea where his home is or how many years have passed since he was condemned to a life of endless combat. Kill or be killed is the rule and a Badari never gives up. He’ll fight to stay alive until the Badari goddess sees fit to decree his death.
Elara Vasclavian is the daughter of a senator, as far removed from the life of a gladiator as a noblewoman can be until through the machinations of a political enemy, she ends up in terrible jeopardy. Abducted and given to a group of drunken gladiators for their amusement the night before the games, Elara vows to put up a fight but there’s no real hope of saving herself. Until Kyden steps in, responding to the goddess’s commandment to protect those who are smaller and weaker. And discovers she’s his fated mate.
Rescued, Elara returns to her life of privilege but she can’t forget the man who saved her life. The gulf between their places in the Five Systems is unbridgeable, no matter how much Kyden longs for even a glimpse of her in the arena audience. No matter how much she feels the pull to be by his side. As matters stand, they cannot be together…Or can they?
KYDEN is the first book in a new series, spun off from my ongoing Badari Warriors series. Kyden is a Generation Five Badari whereas the main characters in the long running series are from a later time and are Generation Eight. This new series stands alone and you don’t have to have read any of the other books to enjoy this one. I couldn’t resist the temptation to tell a few other Badari stories, set in the galaxy’s Hinterlands, and who can resist gladiators?

Once more the fate of mankind rests on Satan’s shoulders. A stupid misunderstanding has broken a ten-thousand-year old contract between the fae and the angels, and humans are now paying the price. Fairies are crossing through portals and freely kidnapping men, women, and children without fear of reprisal. The humans have no idea what’s happening to these random people, and the angel’s answer is to close the fae portals every couple of days and establish a committee to study the problem. And nobody has time for that. It’s up to me to get the Seelie queen to back down, to bring peace to a war-torn realm, and to rescue a bunch of teenage fairy girls—all while planning my wedding. Because the solution to every problem is chaos, and that’s what imps do best.

Jaime is the fourth son of the Prince of the Heighlands. Always an outsider in his family, Jaime seems unable to ever please his father, no matter how he tries. He longs to be a fighter, a hunter, anything other than the role his father has mapped out for him: future steward to his oldest brother. But Jaime’s set path in life is overturned when the consequences of an indiscretion on his part prove to be the final straw for his father. Infuriated, Prince Halden sends Jaime away from the Heighlands, the only home Jaime has ever known, to serve at the court of the powerful and despised king of Leilani. Alone in a much more sophisticated society than he is used to, Jaime must maneuver to find his way … and struggle to understand his feelings about the handsome King Alder of Leilani, to whom he has sworn fealty. Alder has much on his mind. Fighting a war he can’t end and can’t afford to lose, his widowed state is of far less import. Nonetheless, his Councilors are demanding he choose a Companion — a man to please his bed — as is expected of a widowed Leilani king with heirs. It is a choice he is in no hurry to make. The war and losses on the battlefield are of far greater concern, and the arrival of a disgraced prince from the least loyal part of his kingdom is a minor and unwanted distraction. Until Jaime walks into his court. For the first time in his life, Alder feels a genuine surge of lust for a man. But it’s a hopeless attraction. No Heighlander would admit to wanting another man, ever. Jaime wants to fight in the war. Alder wants to make love to him. Can they both possibly get what they want?

It’s a mental and physical connection that creates attraction between us—insanely strong attraction that we both struggle to resist.

The poet William Blake knew this, and for the longest time I felt as though I’d been born into his Endless Night, my life destined for eternal misery. Tragedy stalked me with the persistence of an insatiable tiger: the death of my mother, my mistaken belief I had caused the death of my partner, Detective Mal Blake, the betrayal by Anton, my lover of three years, and his subsequent death at the hands of a demon of the worst sort. But then, out of nowhere, Mal returned to me, and with him came Tommy, a divinely beautiful shifter. For almost half a year we’ve been inseparable, a threesome in every meaning of the word. My name is Ciara Callaghan. I’m a cop, and I thought I’d seen love from both sides, seen both the best and the worst it can do. I was wrong. The worst is yet to come.

Things go from bad to worse when I get a summons to attend the vampire king’s court, where I get my marching orders. I’m given one lousy week to get my affairs in order and then I’m to present myself to the conclave to commence my hundred years of indentured servitude, where I get to learn Vampire 101.

“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.
