mission her safetyMISSION: HER SAFETY (TEAM 52 BOOK 5) by Anna Hackett

VS Note: OK so this series isn’t technically scifi but Anna always includes some otherworldly elements and I love her books!

After Dr. Ty Sampson catches a mysterious female intruder in his home and lab, he’s obsessed with finding out who she is and what she wants. He’s a man who trusts very few people and hates anyone in his space. His role as Team 52’s lead scientist brings him into contact with a host of powerful, ancient artifacts, so he knows the woman must be after something dangerous and he refuses to let her succeed.

River Elliott-Hall is good at finding things and prides herself on always getting the job done. When a very valuable painting by a master is stolen from a famous museum, it is her job to get it back. The trail leads her to the bright lights of Las Vegas and she’s heard rumors of the covert, black ops Team 52. But as she investigates if they know anything about the painting, she finds herself drawn into a battle of wits with a big, bad-tempered, and far-too-handsome genius.

Life has taught River and Ty to guard their hearts, so as these two circle each other, they warily agree to work together. Because it soon becomes clear that the painting is more than just a painting, and someone with a dangerous plan is working behind the scenes. Fighting their intense chemistry, Ty and River—along with Team 52—will risk everything to save the day, and both find themselves battling the unfamiliar needs to claim, protect, and keep each other safe.

rock riftROCK RIFT: EDGE OF SUNRISE (OBSIDIAN RIM BOOK 2) by Elsa Jade

One rare mineral—qubition—powers transgalactic voyages across the Salty Way and took humanity to the stars…while dooming Q miners to the dark. On mining planetoid Ydro-Down, the veins of ore are going too deep, and now the miners have two choices left: keep digging their own graves or revolt against their corporate overlord QueCorp. Either path will likely mean their end, but mine foreman Gavyn Grey is willing to lead them into hell itself.

After an unexploded Q-bomb left over from the ancient Oblivion Wars wiped out her peaceful world when she was a child, Lumia d’Aspiring was taken in by the Order of the Last Candle. The anti-technology spiritual sect trained her as an assassin, saboteur, and terrorist—charging her to save what remains of the Salty Way from the hungers of humanity run amok.

Infiltrating Ydro-Down as intercessor Yumi Swinton to destroy QueCorp’s operations, she instead finds the wicked corporation subjugating the miners—including the ruggedly intriguing but untouchable Gavyn Grey. Should she help the miners end their tyranny? Or make sure nothing and no one survives the revolution?

After decades of desperation, Gavyn knows not to trust anyone. But the quick, quiet Yumi has skills his faltering revolution needs…and secrets he’s determined to uncover. Can he win her over before QueCorp’s vicious overseer takes them down?

There are dangers in getting too close to anyone around the treasured qubition, but trusting each other might be their only hope of survival on the Obsidian Rim.

My BFF Jessie talked me into signing up for the new dating service, Celestial Mates – Love Across Space and Time. Sure, I’ll bite. It’ll be a fun weekend getaway. A one off, a chance to do something I’ve never done before. One hot and wild weekend away from Earth then I’ll bail out and be home for work by Monday.

You know what they say about the best laid plans? Yeah, it all went to hell. Meikal wasn’t supposed to be so over the top gorgeous. And he has wings! Honest to goodness white wings and the body of an angel sculpted by Michelangelo himself. He’s strong, controlled, and restrained. Almost too perfect.

But I barely meet Meikal, my ‘fated’ mate, when I’m kidnapped by his brother Lukien. He’s like the exact opposite in every way. Passionate, fiery, with barely controlled emotions. Even his wings are dark, like the oh so wrong fantasies I have right after we kiss.

Now I’m trapped between two brothers and their alien world. Celestial Mates ‘forgot’ to inform a girl that the whole planet is threatened by some mysterious, evil ‘She’. If these two opposites can’t come together, I’m in trouble.

Wolf shifter Angie Beaumont has had erotic dreams for the last few years. She both looks forward to and dreads going to bed each night, because the dreams leave her wanting and aching for the two males who appear in them. She can’t see their faces clearly, and the only thing she knows for certain is they’re vampires and her truemates. Wolves and vampires aren’t on the best of terms, but Angie doesn’t care what her alpha brother thinks – not only because they’re vampires but also because there are two of them.

Vampire twins Vex and Rage have been around for several hundred years, and until recently, they’d never shared dreams.
They’ve been sharing dreams of a female they believe is their beloved mate. Planning to go to the wiccan coven on the full moon for help in determining who their mate is, they’re surprised to scent her in the club, surrounded by vampires who want to feed on her.

The twins are consumed with making Angie theirs and sharing their immortality with her. But not everyone is happy that a wolf and two vampires are together, and it’s not just the alpha wolf who doesn’t approve. Angie’s caught in the crossfire of a never-ending war with a fanatical group of vampire haters. Can Vex and Rage get to her in time?

By his own admission, Johan’s always been one stubborn bastard.
He’s wedded to his freedom, and the thought of bonding with a dragon has some pretty serious downsides. If he doesn’t sign on to become magical, though, he’ll be left behind—also not an acceptable outcome.
Distant relatives to dragons, sea-serpents are gaining strength shockingly fast. Breeding farms spring up on distant outposts, spitting out all manner of evil. Banished eons ago by the dragon god, the serpents are making a comeback. As the dragons seek allies, they uncover still more atrocities.

Katya, dragon shifter and twin to the dragons’ prince, thought she wanted Johan as her mate, but he has more rough edges than she counted on. Besides, the serpent problem supersedes everything. She’s used to dragons being in charge, but when a serpent almost steals her will, it’s quite the wakeup call her magic isn’t as potent as she always assumed.
Is the age of dragons drawing to a close? If that’s true, what will come next?

claimed by drago wolfCLAIMED BY DRAGO WOLF by Ana Calin

Drago Wolf is a muscle-bound, cocky, leather-wearing beast. He’s also a pro at what he does – kicking ass at underground fight clubs, and messing with women’s heads for money. I swear I was determined to resist him, but I just couldn’t. Not when those eyes like midnight wandered all over my body, and those rock-hard arms pinned my hands above my head. I was wet mid-thigh before he even kissed me.
I gave in to temptation, certain he’d just zip up and hit the road afterwards. But guess what. He emerged convinced I was The One.
Now my public image hangs by a thread. I depend on local investors to keep my dad’s legacy going–medical research labs against deadly diseases. Just imagine those people finding out I’m screwing a male escort….
Drago – I came to Darkwood Falls for a gig. Some chicks paid big bucks for their frigid girlfriend to screw a leather-studded pack of muscles for her birthday. A highlight for her, nothing special for me, right?
Wrong.
Turns out, the frigid girlfriend is The One. Hell, I never even believed the ancient lore. No werewolf has met their fated mate in centuries…(more blurb on ebook seller page…)

Alek’s older brother, Justice—the Alpha Zenith—was the first shifter to mate with a vampire in many generations, and it was believed the rare, fated pairing would stop at him. But, it hadn’t.

Until his true mate literally showed up on his doorstep.

While his brother—the overachiever—excelled at having a vampire as a mate, Alek wasn’t that optimistic he would. He wasn’t averse to love, and he’d often thought of how different his life could’ve turned out if he’d ever experienced the emotion. His life was a mess and he’d worn a mask of stability for a majority of that time, only showing his siblings and pack what they needed to see—a strong Volkov alpha. Not the damaged man he was, with a tortured soul and a rogue wolf.

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 every week based on various informal inputs, and I do curate the list to some extent…

I check and verify all the buy links at the time I create the post  but after that I’m not responsible.
