VENDETTA (PROJECT VETUS BOOK 2) by Emmy Chandler
Having escaped the lab where they were altered with alien DNA, Vaughn Coleman and his fellow super-soldiers answer an ad for a ship capable of getting them far from the prison planet they’ve just fled. Meshach Larsen, autocrat of a notorious isolationist planet, is willing to accept payment in services rendered, rather than credits.
The job? Find and return a mysterious crate that was stolen during shipping. But their mission is complicated minutes after accepting the job when Vaughn finds a beautiful, sheltered stowaway on their already crowded short-range shuttle.
Grace can’t remember how she got from the secluded convent where she was raised to the planet Gebose, where women aren’t to be seen or heard. Where she will soon be forced into service as a concubine. All she knows for sure is that the shuttle leaving to run an errand for Meshach offers her best chance at escape.
But Grace has no way of knowing that the man who discovers her onboard isn’t exactly human. That alien urges and instincts Vaughn can’t quite control—collectively known as his beast—are insisting she is his mate. That he must claim, love, and defend her at any cost. Even if protecting her from Meshach means sacrificing the crew’s best chance to settle their vendetta with the ruthless corporation that turned them into monsters.

He also has one particular regular he can’t get enough of, Shane McNaughton, even if Shane occasionally asks for Aki’s help on a case.

He’s good at finding people, not just because of his years as a seasoned detective, but because he survived the Third World War and resulting plague with a few supernatural abilities himself. Mutated by the virus that wiped out two thirds of the world’s population, Shane no longer considers himself human. Which is why he limits his visits to a very breakable psi companion when not working a case, no matter how much he might want Aki.
When a high ranking official’s daughter goes missing and feared dead, Shane has no choice but to ask Aki to use his abilities to help him track down the kidnapper. The case opens a door to a past Aki thought he had escaped. Will Shane’s love be enough to save them all when something dark is awakened inside of Aki?

STRANDED WITH THE ALIEN by Juno Wells
Autumn – Earth is a mess, wrecked by the excesses of the generations that came before me but we’ve been given a second chance.
Our new home, whether you want it or not. Every newborn is assigned a number and when you reach it, you’re going to be shoved into a tiny “pod” and launched into space. Great if you don’t mind being ripped away from everything you’ve ever known including friends and family.
Which I do, but what choice am I given? None, is the answer. So I’m “lucky”. I get to wait until I’m eighteen to go. Except when I do something goes wrong. So damn wrong.
My pod doesn’t make it to New Earth, not even close. I end up on an alien planet in the hands of a warlike race that doesn’t like humans. It only gets worse and as I’m sure I’m about to be killed, he rescues me.
Blue skin, strong shoulders, long black hair and huge black eyes that go on and on. He’s alien and I hate to admit it but sexy as hell…. I’m in for something, the only question is what?
Olven – Humans are the cockroaches of the universe. Spreading everywhere with no concern for those they displace, no respect, and an attitude of being the only intelligent creatures in existence. Arrogant, full of themselves, an infestation that the galaxy is better off without.
Or so I always thought, until I met her.
Autumn is beautiful. Beautiful in a take my breath away kind of way. She’s nothing like I’ve been taught to believe humans are. She isn’t full of herself or arrogant. She’s kind and sweet and she’s working her way into my heart in a way that I’m totally unprepared to handle.
She’s bringing change, ready or not, and I don’t think my people are ready for her any more than I am. One way or another, I’m going to make her mine.

When he steps foot in the village, however, it isn’t sadness that grabs him, it’s anxiety after meeting a god-talking, native woman. What the hell? Every one of his immortal-senses claws at his spine and urges him to flee. Too bad running isn’t an option for a god.
Koni knows danger, and it’s found her where she works. She’s not sure if it comes from her ex-boyfriend, or the powerful stranger who takes her by surprise one night after the plantation has closed. Only one thing is certain. Those two threats―compounded by the spirit walkers she’s discovered in the woods―make it way past time to pack up and get the hell out of town. She just needs to outmaneuver the lunatic who seems determined to claim her.

SERATIS: DAUGHTER OF THE SUN (THE GODDESS OF EGYPT BOOK 1) by N J Adel and Noor Malek Zayne
My name is NOT Seratis.
I am Queen Meha. The rightful ruler of the Kingdom of Egypt. A scientist. Human.
I was never her. Seratis, the evil Goddess of Sleep who puts men under her spell to compel them to do whatever she commands.
It was all a lie. A myth my half-brother created to make my own people hate me so he could usurp my throne.
Lucky for me, I’ve found a way to preserve the living like my ancestors did with the dead. To escape the war my brother has waged on me, I enter my tomb to be mummified, alive, for a hundred years. With my guard, my apprentice and my maid. Only to wake when my half-brother is long gone and forgotten.
But when we wake up, reality as we know it crashes down around us. Instead of rising after a hundred years, it was a thousand. We haven’t aged a day, and we now possess inhumanly senses, strength and healing powers…among other things.
As if that is not shocking enough, now I know my half-brother isn’t dead yet, and he’s going to wake just like us.
This time I won’t escape. I will fight. And I must find a way to win the war I’ve lost before. Dead or alive.

THE DRAGON’S REBEL by Jacqueline Rohrbach
Cheron, former rebel leader and newly crowned king, comes to Wren Gardens on a holy mission to free his goddess from exile and bring peace to his kingdom, but he’s distracted by an unholy and very beautiful concubine, Ekos.
Ekos may be more than a simple love slave, though. The King of Wren Gardens seems afraid of the strange and often blasphemous concubine and swears the man is cursed. Cheron agrees, especially when Ekos mocks and taunts Cheron’s sense of honor. But the urge to distance himself from Ekos can’t compete with the desire to remain close. Nor is it as strong as the urges in his body—urges he hasn’t felt in years.
As Cheron tries to refocus on his mission, Ekos throws him off again—this time by offering to help him in his holy quest. Cheron knows he shouldn’t trust a man who’s in the employ of a rival king, particularly not one who seems to know all Cheron’s deepest secrets. But he can’t ignore the signs from the goddess telling him to entwine his fate with this tricky, captivating man.
He prays the signs aren’t simply wishful thinking, manifestations of his very unholy desires. Time is running out, and Cheron is falling deeper for Ekos—and deeper into danger of another betrayal. One that could cost him his life.

Druid in training, Chase Rockwell, has had his fill of the supernatural after a harrowing demon possession. Unfortunately, as a SevenOaks Guardian, laying low isn’t part of the job description. But when a sexy, thoughtful, and irresistible librarian moves into Haven Falls, it isn’t long before trouble finds them both.
Alice Carver is on a mission to locate antique books for an enigmatic employer to pay for her ailing sister’s medical treatments. The only problem: Alice is a magnet for chaos. No matter how careful she is, her knack for knowing the truth causes unintended consequences. She’d hate for Chase, the town’s bad boy, to learn about her “quirk” and run like everyone else.
After a volatile ghost terrorizes innocent citizens, Chase and Alice are the only ones who know the truth. A malevolent force has set up shop in their sleepy town and it won’t rest without a fight. Trust doesn’t come easy for either of them, but if they can’t work together, not only are they risking their hearts, but Haven Falls will never be the same.

LINKS TO RECENT NEW RELEASES POSTS from Veronica:
The term “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’.
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.
