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.)

Kellen Hockley usually keeps quiet about his past, but once upon a time he loved a girl named Angela. He hasn’t seen her in a decade, but now he has to break the news to her that his team of rogue treasure hunters accidentally killed her husband. He’s had better days…

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.

earthfilesDARK 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.
Later.
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.

aliens mail order brideTHE ALIEN’S MAIL ORDER BRIDE by Ruby Dixon

She’ll be a tall, sturdy female to help with the chores and bear his children.

tempting jupiterTEMPTING 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 alienWON 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 aliens rageCAVEMAN 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.

rika redeemedRIKA 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.

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.

tordan 1 to 5TORDAN 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.

ventures gainVENTURE’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?

New Releases in #SciFi and #Fantasy Romance for Wednesday July 5th

indianaAs 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).

INDIANA (ALIEN MAIL ORDER BRIDES #6) by Tasha Black

Nikki Fortune has a secret. Her friends think she’s at Maxwell’s Family Resort to teach drama and take endless tennis lessons. But her real purpose forces her to dig deeper into the network that runs the resort than she ever imagined. If only the distractingly handsome alien, Indiana, weren’t there she might be able to keep her eye on the ball.

Indiana has a lot on his mind, not the least of which is figuring out Nikki Fortune. Why does she disappear every Sunday morning? What’s on that laptop she always carries? Why would someone who obviously hates tennis keep taking lessons? And why, gods, why, is she so blindingly stunningly, achingly sexy?
When Indy stumbles onto some answers the two realize they must work together if they want to uncover the truth. But the only way to do that is to trust each other.

And someone still has a secret.

Where, it must be said, she is not at all comfortable.
