These releases are as reported to me by the authors, and I have not read most of them them. I always recommend sampling before you buy!
I put them in the order in which they come to me from authors or I find them myself in the previous week, so it’s a mix of the genres…usually giving priority to the books brought to my attention by the authors.) Also the term “new” is plus or minus a week or two.
(NOTE: If the author provides me with buy links I insert those; otherwise I default to Amazon.)
Also, I usually include only the beginning of the book blurb…
ILLUSION TOWN by Jayne Castle
Hannah West isn’t the first woman to wake up in Illusion Town married to a man she barely knows, but she has no memory of the ceremony at all. For that matter, neither does Elias Coppersmith, her new husband. All either can remember is that they were on the run…
With Hannah’s dubious background and shaky para-psych profile, she could have done much worse. The cooly competent mining heir arouses her curiosity—as well as other parts of her mind and body. And even her dust bunny likes him.
But a honeymoon spent retracing their footsteps leads Hannah and Elias into the twisting underground catacombs, where secrets from both their pasts will come to light—and where the energy of their clashing auras will grow hot enough to burn…
