As always, I recommend sampling before you buy! I have not read most of the new releases listed (although I always end up one-clicking a bunch as I prepare these posts LOL).
PERFECT GRAVITY (WANTED AND WIRED BOOK 2) by Vivien Jackson
VS Note: I really enjoyed the first book in the series so I one-clicked this.)

It’s not the news that’s delivered to Angela Neko that breaks her apart—it’s the rumbly, Texas drawl delivering it. She can’t believe she’s hearing Kellen’s voice again. But there’s no time for distractions. When Angela’s own life is threatened, yielding up all of her lies and secrets, she and Kellen must figure out how to reverse the geopolitical firestorm she lit to save the world, to save Kellen’s cat…and just maybe to save each other.

DARK PLANET WARRIORS: EARTHFILES by Anna Carven
VS Note: I LOVED this series so it’s exciting to see a collection of short stories. One clicked of course!
As much as Rykal thought she was sheer perfection in that outfit, he wanted to flick out a claw and gently slice the garment from top to bottom so he could pay homage to her naked form.
She wouldn’t escape his tender clutches.
But he would behave himself for now, because this particular outing was apparently an important event in Human culture.
He was about to meet the mother of his mate.
* * *
The Earth Files are short stories (novella-length) set in the world of the Dark Planet Warriors. You can expect sweet, steamy, and offbeat stories about the colorful characters from the main series. They are intended as accompaniments to Dark Planet Warriors, and may contain the occasional spoiler. Book 1 features Arin and Rykal, our protagonists from Forged in Shadow. It’s set after Brilliant Starlight (Book 8), when the Kordolians have returned to Earth.
Although it’s a spinoff, it isn’t the spinoff. That’s coming soon.
EXPLODE TEAM NOVA (THE GREAT SPACE RACE) by Teresa Noelle Roberts
VS Note: The GSR is a collection of 6 books around the race theme, organized by CJ Cade. Some of the books are out now and some will release on November 21st. I’ll list them here on my report as they become available because I don’t have room for pre-orders. Love their concept!
Some came for fame and fortune, others were coerced. Now they must fight to survive.
These couples will find unexpected love… but which team will win? The Great Space Race. It’s show time!
Their chemistry’s explosive. Too bad someone wants to blow them up.
Cat-girl space racer Sarr’ma Settazz’s plan: Enter the reality show The Great Space Race. Hide she’s also an engineer. Steal super-secret technology. Win. Easy-peasy bloxfruit squeezy!
Falling for her grumpy, overprotective, smoking-hot human race teammate? Not in the plan.
Miner Tripp Gallifer’s plan: Enter The Great Space Race. Protect his playful cat-girl teammate while she handles the actual flying. Win. Pray the psycho who kidnapped his sister will honor their bargain: Tripp keeps silent about the crime and hands over the prize money, and his sister goes free.
Falling for the brilliant female he glimpses behind Sarr’ma’s bouncy façade? Not in the plan.
Then the kidnapper ups the game to attempted murder and all secrets must be revealed—including their feelings. Sarr’ma and Tripp concoct a scheme worthy of the wildest reality show to save Tripp’s sister and themselves. But they’ll need to trust each other to pull it off. Will their love be enough to let them win the biggest prize of all?
THE ALIEN’S MAIL ORDER BRIDE by Ruby Dixon
Though still carrying the scars of his past as an intergalactic soldier, Emvor doesn’t mind the quiet of his chosen life as a farmer. He doesn’t even mind that most nights are lonely on remote Cassa, but he does need help around his farm. A mail-order bride from his homeworld seems like the perfect solution. She’ll be a tall, sturdy female to help with the chores and bear his children.
Unfortunately, the person that arrives is Nicola. She’s small, delicate…and human. She also knows nothing about farming, and she’s lied and deceived her way across the galaxy to get to Cassa so she can hide from those that would capture her. She’s a problem, and also the most enticing thing he’s ever seen.
Now Emvor has to decide…can he keep the woman who’s nothing like what he asked for but is everything he needs?
TEMPTING JUPITER (ARENA DOGS BOOK 2) by Charlee Allden
VS Note: I very much enjoyed the first book in this series. One clicked.
Jupiter and Seneca are Arena Dogs, genetically engineered slaves created to serve at the will of their masters. From the beginning, Jupiter was destined for the gladiator arena where a Dog faces death every day. Seneca became a gladiator only after years of abuse in a pleasure house and he owes his success in the arena to the Dog he secretly loves—Jupiter. Slated for death after a rigged match in the gladiator arena, they’re instead rescued and taken off the planet by the Resistance. When the escape ship is recaptured, their only hope to remain free is a human woman with an agenda and secrets of her own.
Feeona is a thief and a con artist, but that doesn’t make her one of the bad guys. Normally, the Arena Dogs would be safe in her care. Even if she wasn’t crazy attracted to them she’d want to help them, but their presence has interfered with her plans and a cause so close to her soul that nothing can be more important—not even the two men who are rapidly taking up residence in her heart.
Will Feeona find a way to save them all or will she be forced to choose who to save and who to betray?

WON BY AN ALIEN by Amanda Milo
I was abducted by aliens.
The aliens that I’ve been auctioned to don’t speak my language, and I definitely can’t speak theirs.
I didn’t expect to get married by accident to the sweet one.
I didn’t expect to have a grumpy alien bond to me, and go a little crazy if other males get near me, or if I try to leave.
It doesn’t matter if they’ve won my heart.
I can’t stay.
Somehow, I have to explain that I NEED to go home. Because the bad aliens that abducted me?
They took me from my babies.
CAVEMAN ALIEN’S RAGE by Calista Skye
VS Note: I enjoyed the first two books, put this on my TBR List.
Dar’ax is the kind of alien caveman who takes what he wants.
I kind of like that in a guy.
It’s just that what he’s taken now is me.
He just threw me over his lap and trotted away with me into the jungle of this jurassic planet.
On a freaking T. Rex.
Because those lethal alien dinosaurs I’m so afraid of?
Yeah, he’s riding one.
There’s no way I’m going to be the kind of girl who falls for her kidnapper.
But he’s making it hard for me to resist. Not only is he huge and super confident, he’s also drop-dead gorgeous, with his stripes and his fangs and his golden hair that shines with an inner light.
I think we’re going to his cave. Judging from the enticingly large tent he’s pitching in his loincloth, I think he has plans for when we get there.
And I think they involve me becoming his mate.
We’ll just see about that. Because while he does turn me into a hot mush on the inside, I also want to go home.
And he clearly has a major anger problem.

At least she has a big wedding where she’s a bridesmaid to distract her. Now she just needs a date for the wedding…

RIKA REDEEMED (AEON 14 RIKA’S MARAUDERS BOOK 2) by M D Cooper
VS Note: A recommendation from reader Merry. Not sure if there’s any romance but the reviews talk a lot about the strong heroine which is always a plus to me.
After years of drifting aimlessly after the war with the Nietzscheans, she has finally found a home with the Marauders—a mercenary outfit comprised of Genevian veterans.
Back in the war, Rika hated her government, but always fought for the woman next to her. Now she fights for her teammates in Basilisk, an elite spec-ops team that takes on the toughest missions.
When General Mill, CO of the Marauders comes to Rika with a top-secret solo operation, she wants to turn it down. But the mission comes with a chance to save Silva, her old team leader from the Nietzschean war.
Without team Basilisk, without the Marauders, Rika must stand on her own against all odds and save the woman who once saved her.
TORDAN 1.0 TO 5.0 (CYBORG WARRIORS) by Immortal Angel and Aeon Igni
VS Note: This seems to be the set of all 5 episodes, which were previously released one by one in October.
The Ardaks, terrifying creatures that stand seven feet tall and use laser ray technology, are sweeping across the galaxy, killing every humanoid race their wake. But in this time of destruction, there are heroes and heroines who are willing to stand up, to risk torture and even worse, to save the lives of their people.
Aielle led a mission to defeat the Ardaks three years ago—and has been languishing in prison ever since. Deprived of her magic, Aielle willingly faces death by the brutal Ardaks to keep her people’s secrets. The last thing she expects is to be rescued by one of the sexy and lethal Cyborgs enslaved by them.
Tordan woke from his chip to find he’s a Cyborg, with no memories of his past or who he is, and no idea what freed him. Filled with rage and confusion, he feels a powerful, unexplainable connection to the elven prisoner in the last cell, and he’s willing to risk anything to find out why.
Now they are fugitives, and for each of them, survival depends upon their willingness to trust the very people who might be their greatest threat: each other.
VENTURE’S GAIN by J J Lore
Star tussle player Cai travels the galaxy with his team playing intense matches, but is too introverted to have much of a social game. At a mixer before the next day’s match, he meets a man who is capable of drawing him out of his shell, and he lets his guard down, hoping for a connection.
Stalking his target in a crowded bar seems like a good idea to Venture, at least until the conversation he’s sharing with the handsome athlete turns personal. But he has a job to do, and no matter how much he likes Cai, Venture still has to knock him out, tie him up, and hide him away until payment from gamblers hoping to influence the outcome of the contest comes through.
The dynamic between captor and captive shifts and evolves even in the short time Cai and Venture spend together. Despite the binds holding Cai, he longs to touch Venture, and it doesn’t take much encouragement for Venture to let down his guard with his attractive prisoner. Who is the jailor now?

KOSH’S OMEGA (ALPHA’S WOMAN BOOK 2) by Carolyn Faulkner
The termagant being brought into the small clinic isn’t exactly what second in command and Alpha soldier, Kosh, envisioned as his perfect Omega, but he knows beyond a shadow of a doubt that she is his.

And if you haven’t had a chance to pick up my New Release from last week – paranormal romance and adventure in ancient Egypt:
LINKS TO RECENT NEW RELEASES POSTS from Veronica:
My standard Notes and Caveats:
The term “new” is generally plus or minus a week or two. I try to catch up on ones I missed in recent months.
I don’t ordinarily list re-releases…
(NOTE: If the author provides me with buy links I insert those; otherwise I default to Amazon and iBooks. Pricing and availability are current as of the day I prepare the post – things can change fast in the ebook world LOL.)
Also, I often include only the beginning of the book blurb…
