Edit: This was supposed to post last Saturday but I was busy editing and completely forgot about it until Monday. Sorry about that. I added one book to the bottom that I did read this week and really enjoyed.
Title: Ardulum: First Don
Author: JS Fields
Length: 277 pages
Publisher: Ninestar Publishing
Genre: Romance / Sci-Fi / Lesbian
Notes: I've heard a ton of good things about this series and I'm going to give it a go!
Blurb: Ardulum. The planet that vanishes. The planet that sleeps.
Neek makes a living piloting the dilapidated tramp transport, Mercy’s Pledge, and smuggling questionable goods across systems blessed with peace and prosperity. She gets by—but only just. In her dreams, she is still haunted by thoughts of Ardulum, the traveling planet that, long ago, visited her homeworld. The Ardulans brought with them agriculture, art, interstellar technology…and then disappeared without a trace, leaving Neek’s people to worship them as gods.
Neek does not believe—and has paid dearly for it with an exile from her home for her heretical views.
Yet, when the crew stumbles into an armed confrontation between the sheriffs of the Charted Systems and an unknown species, fate deals Neek an unexpected hand in the form of a slave girl—a child whose ability to telepathically manipulate cellulose is reminiscent of that of an Ardulan god. Forced to reconcile her beliefs, Neek chooses to protect her, but is the child the key to her salvation, or will she lead them all to their deaths?

In the wake of its creation, though, a strange infection breaks out among the crew, causing them to morph into disturbing creatures called linchars.

Blurb: Ash is dead.Okay, that’s a lie. He’s not. Not really.
Somehow, that doesn’t make things any better.
After reports of a fatal hovercar accident outside the Capital—complete with a charred body and DNA identification—it seems at first that all is lost in the Shadow Wing’s quest to infiltrate the Premiere’s inner circle.
But one member of the vigilante group refuses to accept the evidence of his human comrade’s death. Draven knows Ash. He knows that devious mind, and more importantly, he knows the martyr complex that lies beneath it.
He should know. Draven is also a master at hiding. He’s done it for most of his life. Now, though, he’s done living in the shadows.
Can Draven track down a man who is so intent on not being found that he would stage his own death to prevent it? And if he does succeed in finding Ash, what then?
No one ever said that emerging from the darkness of the past was easy. No one ever said that forbidden love was painless.
Especially when the object of that love is convinced he’s damaged goods.
Title: Crimson Vampire Night
Author: Zac Zara
Length: 186 pages
Genre: Urban Fantasy / Paranormal / Gay / Roamce /
Blurb: Vampires. Werewolves. And, a Forbidden Love with a Twist!
Deacon Nightworth is the younger son of Ishmael Nightworth, leader of the Nightworth Legion, a vampire clan tracing its origins back to the time of Julius Caesar. This legion of vampires has maintained peace in the supernatural world for centuries. But now severe trouble is brewing in the St, Louis area, trouble involving the Crimson Hounds, a powerful werewolf clan with packs all over Texas and the south.
The combination of undead serial killers, a rash of dead humans, and body snatchings was becoming impossible to ignore. Something genuinely evil was afoot, something besides vampires and werewolves. And now, to make matters worse, a fragile truce between vampires and werewolves was about to be broken. Total war between the vampires and werewolves would be a disaster.
Amid this supernatural chaos, Deacon meets Weldon, son of Shane Crimson and heir to the Crimson House. For a vampire prince, becoming involved with a werewolf, even if he were the heir to the Crimson House would not be accepted. Deacon, however, could not ignore the intense feelings of attraction. And, he was sure Weldon felt the same way.
This dangerous situation could easily spell the end for two star-crossed lovers. Or, can Deacon and Weldon forge a relationship strong enough to defeat the real threat, and bring the clans together.
Looking for a great supernatural tale with heroic gay characters and just a touch of humor? Then this is a story for you.

Title: Trapped in the Alien Jungle
Series: (Pykh Book 2)
Author: Eileen Glass
Length: 395 pages
Publisher: Glass Fiction (September 27, 2018)
Genre: Sci-Fi / Slow Burn Romance / Poly / Gay /
Notes: I read the first book of this series a couple years ago when the other two were not released yet. It made my favorites list and I planned on reading the series as it released but forgot about it. A friend let me know the other two books were out and I bought this on audio. Joel Leslie did a great job. The first book is still very fresh in my mind so I didn't need a reread to jump in to this. Excellent story. Well written and imaginative with great characters. Highly recommend this series.
Blurb: Carter isn't sure what to call his two alien protectors. Friends? Boyfriends? Mates?
Or merely indiscriminate lovers with sexy purrs and tangling tails?
He would be lost without them, he knows that. When their home is invaded by a dangerous new kind of alien slaver, they strike out into the jungle. He depends on them for food, protection, a direction to walk in. He's helpless even for shelter and warmth.
Thankfully, his alien lovers seem devoted, but why? Carter wishes he knew their names or anything else. Like whether the attachment he's feeling is returned.
With aliens, you can't make assumptions.
Wouldn't it be nice if he could just ask?
Thank you for stopping by and reading!!
