Another hot week is upon us, especially if you live in the U.S. But the week ends with a 3-day weekend and the 4th of July where many of us will celebrate by blowing things up and grilling out.

But don't worry, you'll still get to hear from me about the new releases next week as well as the preorders coming next month AND the next week you'll get to hear about our Christmas in July free week (and there are some great books discounted that week).​

But you want to know about the new releases this week, right? There are 6 amazing books launching this week and one of them is out now! That's pretty sweet for a Monday!

This Week's New Releases

Title: A Collection of Short Stories (Protected By The Damned)
Release Date: 06/20/2022

KatieDora are BACK in eight demonically delightful short stories!

Note: These short stories were originally published as a part of Protected by the Damned version 2.0 books 1-8.

From the bright lights of Vegas to Hollywood and beyond, Katie and Pandora have returned for another round of no filter, no holds barred, ass-kicking action in brand new adventures and all the juicy scenes you didn’t see the first time around.

Bullets and betrayal are a hell of a backdrop for a girl on a mission to watch her soaps before the next call comes in.

Personal growth is something Pandora would tell you only happens when a guy gets excited. Katie knows there’s a heart of gold hiding beneath her demon’s snarky exterior.

You can’t keep a good demon down. Unless you ask nicely…

Can the once-shy college student-turned-demon hunting mercenary find a way to connect with the horny, hungry hellion sharing her body before their way of life lands them both in the deepest, darkest recess of Hell?

First included as bonus material in the first eight Protected by the Damned books, these shorts are an excellent introduction to the main story.

But read with caution… They might lead you to the dark side.

Title: New Rules For Idiots
Series: Dead Evil Mercenary Corps Book 4
Release Date: 06/28/2022

Our trio of madcap mercenaries have brought peace to Mugh-9, but it turns out that peace is bad for business.

What is a merc to do but head out into the galaxy and find some work?

There's always someone in need of a steady hand, a strong arm, and a propensity toward violence, right?

Our trio hit the jackpot when they are approached by a representative from a crumbling regime.

Have gun, will travel: that's the order of the day.

The company loads up and heads out for a distant corner of a broken empire. It doesn't take them long to realize that this might be more dangerous than even they expected.

Lethal space anomalies? Check. Ruthless pirates? Check. Omnicidal cyborgs? Check.

Our crew of guns-for-hire are in over their heads. That never stopped them before, so why worry about it now?

Series: The Warrior Book 8
Release Date: 06/29/2022

Welcome to Hellion Squadron.

A new unit, new challenges and possibly new friends await Idina Moorfield as she joins other magicals in the military to train against magical monsters.

The soldiers in this unit are different, yet all the same. They were in the military, had issues because they had magic and nobody to teach them, then were recruited to the unit.

And now they have to learn to work together – as a team.

The Olc is rearing its ugly head again. Idina and Richard need to find a way to put it down – for good.

Idina thinks she has a solution, but Richard isn’t convinced.

Can she count on her new family to help her out? Will they be able to work together to stop this threat not just to Idina and Richard, but the Moorfield family?

Title: Chance At Joy
Series: Gallows Hill Academy Series Book 2
Release Date: 06/29/2022

Shiny things rock. Until I pick the wrong one up.

Note: This book was previously published as part of the megabook Sorrow and Joy.

I made it through month one of magical high school.

Nobody messes with me now that I’m dating a wrestler, and Ed convinced the clique to lighten up. Thanks to a few trinkets borrowed from the Drama Club, I even got some of my stuff back from my cruel and unusual mother.

Things are looking up at last.

Until my world is turned on its head by a lion shifter who drops a magic feather. It's shiny and I'm a raven shifter. Of course I pick it up.

Big mistake.

It's magically bonded to me and I can’t give it back. Now I've got obligations to the Goblin King and the threat of a hundred years in his dungeon if I fail on top of everything else.

Can I handle this, or will I end up buried under mountains of faerie debt?

 

Title: Destined
Series: Hellcat Released Book 3
Release Date: 06/30/2022

Revenge may be a dish best served cold, but things are heating up for Dante—and they don't look like they are settling down anytime soon.

He's dug deeper and deeper in his pursuit of justice, and he's had to push himself harder and farther to stay one step ahead.

How far will he go? How far is too far?

The enemies he’s pursuing are powerful, ruthless, and motivated to see their interests take priority over the needs of everyone else.

It's not like Dante is looking to go out in a blaze of glory, but he can't pretend this is going to be easy.

Dante is not alone. He never has been, if he's honest with himself, and that means he has more to think about than just Number One.

The culmination of his quest for justice sees him surrounded by the circle of new friends and old enemies he's gathered along the way.

How many of them will it cost to finish this?

Title: Homespun Fate
Series: Marmalade and Magic Book 3
Release Date: 07/01/2022

You can bury the past, but some ghosts refuse to stay dead forever.

Jemma Nox has learned that she is not the only witch in the family, but it's far from a prestigious pedigree.

And she's not the only one whose past is coming to call.

Mama B has been many things, guardian and mentor being foremost, but perfect isn't one of them.

Since her tutelage began, Jemma has learned that Mama B's history is streaked like a polecat with tragedy, but things are about to get quite a bit more interesting.

The sins of the father may be visited upon the 3rd and 4th generation, but what about the sins of the mother?

Jemma's going to find out one way or another. She’s just going to have to hope she can hold on.
