NEW RELEASES


Manu by Anna Hackett is Book 16 in the Hell Squad series and was released on 8th May.



As the battle against the invading aliens intensifies, a group of bad boy bikers and mercenaries will stand and fight for humanity’s survival…

When former berserker Manu Rahia lost his leg on a mission, he was forced to leave his squad. He knows his new role as head of the Enclave’s firing range and armory is important, but hates that he isn’t still out there fighting face to face against the aliens and protecting his brothers’ backs. But then one woman catches his eye. A no-nonsense woman dedicated to her job as head of security. A woman who seems cool on the surface, but who Manu is convinced is hiding more under her business-like exterior.

Captain Kate Scott dedicated her life to her career in the Army. Now she works hard taking care of security for the Enclave and its residents. She learned a long time ago that she isn’t a passionate woman, and that she’s better off sticking to her work. But seeing one big, bronze-skinned, muscled man at the range every day has her hormones going into overdrive. She’s never felt like this and she’s determined to get herself under control.

But when the aliens launch a viscous new attack, right on the Enclave’s doorstep, Kate and Manu must join forces to stop the raptors before more people get hurt. Kate will fight fiercely to protect her team and the base, as well as her heart. But Manu Rahia is a man who knows what he wants, will walk through fire to get it, and what he wants is Kate.

A dark fantasy short story about royalty, rivalry, and assassination

Life’s not fair, when you have to find a fiancĂ© or risk setting your kingdom up for a fall. It’s not fair, when your dead lover comes to call, assassins in his wake, and your dead maid by his side. And it’s really not fair, when everything happens on the night of your suitors’ ball. It never rains but it pours. I am a queen by blood and right, and not some random happenstance—yet who am I to argue when Destiny comes to call?

PRE-ORDERS



Alien Captured by Marie Dry is Book 5 in the Zyrgin Warriors series and is due for release by Black Opal Books on 9th June.




In a bleak future, where government systems are breaking down and poverty and violence reign, on an abandoned farm in Montana, Susannah had a simple plan. She’d capture an alien, sell him to the resistance, and use the money to save her son. 

Instead, Susannah had an arrogant alien trapped in a pit who acted as if she was the prisoner. He wanted to kill her dog and insisted she should care for the wound he sustained when he fell into the pit she dug to trap him. On top of that, she had no way to know if the resistance got her message. Every day that passed, she doubted her decision to hand Azagor over to the resistance. 

But her son, her baby, was being held by people who considered him unclean because he was conceived out of wedlock—and time was running out.

No Ordinary Gift by Mel Teshco is the new cover of the book Believe and it's co-written with Kylie Sheaffe. Initially released in 2013.



Josie Bowheart has only ever wanted to be normal. Instead she’s highly sensitive and overwhelmed by visions and dreams, and obsessed by spirits who need her.

But if normal means living the same lie as her genius brother and doctor, James, she’ll gladly stay just the way she is. First she has to convince James to believe in his own sensitivities and open his eyes to his destiny before it’s too late … because ordinary isn’t a word that serves either one of them.

Can James let go of his fears and his growing drug addiction that suppress his mind and keep him numb to the truth … and finally accept the gift that is his birthright?

Chase Calhoun has worked hard at making Calhoun Customs a world-wide sensation and keeping his father’s dream alive. He hasn’t had time to think about settling down, so he’s not expecting to find love or new life hiding in the attic of their garage among the ghosts of his family’s past.

Charlotte Jackson is on the run from a rebellious past, determined to prove she can be a good mom to three-month-old baby, Zoe.
