New Releases in #SciFi #Fantasy and Paranormal Romance for Wednesday April 24

heart of eonI have a new paranormal romance release of my own to report! It’ll be about halfway down the list because I always list the scifi romance titles first…

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).

HEART OF EON (EON WARRIORS BOOK 3) by Anna Hackett

VS note: I’m loving this new series from Anna and of course one clicked promptly!

Genius computer geek Wren Traynor prefers her high-tech comp lab to socializing with people, and she definitely prefers it over crawling through the bowels of the huge Eon warship she’s hijacked. When Earth’s Space Corps blackmails her into this deadly mission, Wren will do anything to help her beloved sisters and save the Earth from invasion by the insectoid Kantos aliens. That includes entering into a dangerous game of cat and mouse with the tall, hunky, and seriously enraged Eon war commander who captains the Rengard.

War Commander Malax Dann-Jad is a born protector and has forged a successful career in service to the Eon Empire. Haunted by an early mission where he lost good warriors, he’s dedicated to protecting his ship and its crew. Especially since his warship is carrying a special, top-secret cargo. But one tiny, infuriating Terran puts all that at risk when she commandeers his ship and refuses to listen to reason.

When the ravenous Kantos set their sights on the Rengard–using sneaky, underhanded tactics–Malax finds himself with an armful of curvy woman. He and Wren must join forces to fight back, and are shocked at their improbable, intense attraction. But with lives at risk, both will learn that strength comes in more ways than one and love can hit when you least expect it, and that in order to survive, you have to put everything on the line.

warriors mate iriduan 4THE WARRIOR’S MATE (IRIDUAN TEST SUBJECTS BOOK 4) by Susan Trombley

Five years ago, I was abducted by aliens….
After a harrowing escape from an alien research facility, I found myself in the care and protection of an alien species called the Akrellians, but I didn’t trust my instantaneous attraction to the commander of the ship. After all, I had no idea what the evil Iriduans had done to me, so I didn’t know if my feelings were even my own or something they had caused.
He was reptilian and had deadly quills. How could a human possibly fall so fast for such an alien male?
When I offered Prime Commander Tirel a temporary sexual liaison, hoping it would ease the need I felt for him, he rejected it and asked for something more permanent.
I panicked.
I couldn’t escape him fast enough. Not because I feared him, but because of the temptation he offered—one that would require me to sacrifice everything I’ve ever known to stay with him.
Now, after years apart, the strange bond that had formed between us upon our first meeting demands I return to him, and I realize that I can’t continue to live my life without him. The only problem—I’m stuck on Earth, and I don’t know how to find him again.
Until an unexpected visitor brings me the solution—and the terrifying news that I may have waited too long.

alien heros claimed brideALIEN HERO’S CLAIMED BRIDE by Juno Wells

Cassandra – Stranded and alone in a sector of space ruled by vicious queens, I’m losing hope of ever finding freedom. After being abducted, all I wanted was to escape from the aquatic species trying to sell me on the open market. They feed me cold slop every day, rough me up when I don’t do what they want, and keep me in a cage with standing room only.

One day, somehow, I’m going to turn the tables and I’ll put them in this same dirty cage. Making that happen is all I think about, because thinking about my life on Earth is too painful. They snatched me right when everything was going to hell in hand-basket.

Humans had finally organized to fight against the environmental disasters making the planet uninhabitable. I was pulling core samples on a mountain top when the aliens came for me. As it is, Earth needs me much more than the horrible aquatics intent on using me to line their pockets.

Mathadar – Being one of millions of warriors in the Draconian fleet makes me insignificant and dispensable. Our Queens don’t value our contributions and see us as expendable. I’ve lost my father and my brothers have been assigned throughout the fleet. I’m alone, another faceless warrior for the cause.

All that changes when I see an alien Queen being auctioned in the city square. ..(more blurb on ebook seller page…)

kintolf risingKINTOLF RISING (NEW ALIEN SPECIES BOOK 2) by TC Adams and Hannah Davenport

Having lived my short twenty-four years on a family farm, talking to Henry (my best friend and the family dog), feeding the animals, I just wanted to explore a little before life slipped away. Was that so wrong?

Luckily for me, Aunt Viv convinced Mom to let me visit her on the space station and I couldn’t wait. I took all the required classes, had the translator inserted, and off I went.
“Space travel is much safer now,” the instructor said. “You will be fine.” 
Ha! What a joke—I never made it to the space station.

Captured and held prisoner in some dark cave by the Acradidia, I am afraid. Every so often, they show up and drag me to a lab of sorts, injecting me with some thick yellow liquid. I can’t discern what they are trying to do… But I know they are changing me…I can feel it.

There’s a guy in a cell down from me. I watch him as he paces but never get a glimpse of his face. All I know is that he has fur running across the back of his shoulders, down his hips…but I want to see his face.

When we finally escape, I feel drawn to him in a way I can’t understand. He’s strong, and thoughtful, sometimes irritating but still…I have a hard time resisting his magnetic pull. And then we rescue his team…his sexy, intense team, and they all make my insides turn to jelly. How will I choose between the three of them? Or can I have them all?

caveman aliens claimCAVEMAN ALIEN’S CLAIM (CAVEMAN ALIENS BOOK 7) by Calista Skye

Tamara – There’s a rope tied around my ankle. The other end is in the hand of a caveman. My head hurts, too. And I have no idea how I got to this small hut far away from the village with the other Earth girls. Yeah, this is not the best way to wake up.

The caveman is a mountain of muscle and moves like a tiger. He has eyes like yellow lasers. He could be very attractive if he didn’t have a bad burn on half his face.
I don’t know what he wants with me.
But I can guess. All the other Earth girls are pregnant by caveman aliens. And the way this guy looks at me, I have a feeling that he wants to claim me.

Car’rakz – I saw her in the village with the other women aliens, and I had to have her.
I have never been this close to a woman before. She makes me dizzy with her softness and her scent. I’ve tied her up so she can’t escape. Already I can’t stand the thought of being without her. I’ll take her to my tribe. I know women can give birth. Soon there will be children in my village again.

Questions about her brother. Questions about her past.
And it looked like both of those things were catching up to her. Which left Hannah torn.
Between Cole and Liam, she already had her hands plenty full. Not to mention her own nagging conscience, the one that kept reminding her that what she was feeling was wrong. So… the most pressing questions still remained unanswered.
How far would a girl be willing to go to get answers? And for that matter, how far would the men in her life let her?

a boy and his dogA BOY AND HIS DOG AT THE END OF THE WORLD by C A Fletcher

VS Note: Not a romance, but post apocalyptic and…dog! As best I can tell from reviews, there’s a happy ending…but I have not read it. The reviews are mixed as to pacing and the author’s failure to use quotation marks…but a release of note.

My parents told me how crowded the world used to be, but we were never lonely on our remote island. We had each other, and our dogs.
Then the thief came.
There may be no law left except what you make of it. But if you steal my dog, you can at least expect me to come after you.
Because if we aren’t loyal to the things we love, what’s the point?

oracle nocturnal maidensORACLE: NOCTURNAL MAIDENS: AN ORACLE’S MAIDENS NOVEL 01 by D R Rosier

Bill Callahan, columnist, blogger, superhero, is Oracle. It isn’t easy being a hero, especially a D-Class one with a single power. Seeing the future was a huge edge, even for an otherwise normal human, but he still had to carefully choose his battles.

As if being a superhero dealing with more powerful villains wasn’t hard enough, he also had to avoid the Nocturnal Maidens, the premiere superheroine team in the city. They really didn’t like him, at all. He had no idea what he’d done, but they seemed to despise him, and hold him in contempt.

He was alone, fought alone, lived alone, and with his double life had very few friends and none of them close. His life was about to change, significantly, if he could survive.

delta v daniel suarezDELTA-V by Daniel Suarez

VS Note: Hard scifi not a romance but a release of note. I liked the ‘look inside’ and put it on my TBR list.

When itinerant cave diver James Tighe receives an invitation to billionaire Nathan Joyce’s private island, he thinks it must be a mistake. But Tighe’s unique skill set makes him a prime candidate for Joyce’s high-risk venture to mine a near-earth asteroid–with the goal of kick-starting an entire off-world economy. The potential rewards and personal risks are staggering, but the competition is fierce and the stakes couldn’t be higher.

Isolated and pushed beyond their breaking points, Tighe and his fellow twenty-first century adventurers–ex-soldiers, former astronauts, BASE jumpers, and mountain climbers–must rely on each other to survive not only the dangers of a multi-year expedition but the harsh realities of business in space. They’re determined to transform humanity from an Earth-bound species to a space-faring one–or die trying.

SongoftheNileFinalSONG OF THE NILE: GODS OF EGYPT by Veronica Scott

Merneith, a harpist of rare talents, blessed by the goddess Hathor, has recently arrived in Thebes and joined Pharaoh’s court, but must hide secrets from her past. As she settles into her new life in the palace, the one man she can’t forget and followed to Thebes is unaccountably absent.

Nikare, a Medjai police officer serving under Pharaoh’s direct orders, is now deep undercover investigating high crimes against Egypt and forbidden to contact Merneith. Masquerading as a priest to deceive the plotters, he watches over her from afar and longs for the day he can approach her openly.

How much help will the gods provide? Will the pair survive the final showdown between Pharaoh and the conspirators and find the happy future together they desire?

storm of locustsSTORM OF LOCUSTS (THE SIXTH WORLD BOOK 2) by Rebecca Roanhorse

VS note: Not a romance per se but a release of note. I enjoyed the first book in the series – it’s very from anything else I’ve ever read and the abrupt ending didn’t make me happy, but hey, it’s a series so we’ll see…this is on my TBR list.

It’s been four weeks since the bloody showdown at Black Mesa, and Maggie Hoskie, Diné monster hunter, is trying to make the best of things. Only her latest bounty hunt has gone sideways, she’s lost her only friend, Kai Arviso, and she’s somehow found herself responsible for a girl with a strange clan power.

Then the Goodacre twins show up at Maggie’s door with the news that Kai and the youngest Goodacre, Caleb, have fallen in with a mysterious cult, led by a figure out of Navajo legend called the White Locust. The Goodacres are convinced that Kai’s a true believer, but Maggie suspects there’s more to Kai’s new faith than meets the eye. She vows to track down the White Locust, then rescue Kai and make things right between them.

Her search leads her beyond the Walls of Dinétah and straight into the horrors of the Big Water world outside. With the aid of a motley collection of allies, Maggie must battle body harvesters, newborn casino gods and, ultimately, the White Locust himself. But the cult leader is nothing like she suspected, and Kai might not need rescuing after all. When the full scope of the White Locust’s plans are revealed, Maggie’s burgeoning trust in her friends, and herself, will be pushed to the breaking point, and not everyone will survive.

We used tae be friends, but now she’s gone tae far. We wull be taking that axe back from her sae we can save Donnan. End o’ discussion.”
