The Morcai Battalion: The Rescue by Diana Palmer
Rhemun, commander of the Cehn-Tahr Holconcom, has worked tirelessly to get where he is—and he’s not going to let any human drag him back down. Especially not Lt. Commander Edris Mallory, whose very presence aboard the Morcai serves as a too-painful reminder of a past tragedy. But Mallory has secrets of her own—ones she can’t afford to see come to light. Frantic to protect herself, she flees, abandoning her position. When Rhemun learns of her devastating situation, and he realizes the all-consuming feelings he’s harbored for her may not be hatred.
Third Wave by Zaide Bishop
Once divided, the Elikai and Varekai tribes have unified. Now called Kai, they’ve come to look beyond rebuilding their world to secure a life for the new Children of Eden. In unearthing their origins as a people, in learning the truth behind the cataclysm that wiped out most of the world’s population, the few survivors will discover the very reason for their existence. They’ve never been more united—or more vulnerable to a new enemy. Their archipelago is now under threat from an army of outsiders with their own unfathomable purpose.
Contingency Plan by Robyn Bachar
No home, no family and only faded memories of the life she lost. After the rebellion destroyed New Hong Kong and left Jiang Chen with a brain injury, she found a new place to belong aboard the Mombasa as its pilot. But after discovering she poses a danger to ship and crew, Jiang leaves, not wanting to risk causing them more harm. Security chief Ryder Kalani blames himself for the mission failures plaguing the Mombasa. Having lost his right arm in the rebellion and now fit with a prosthetic, he’s unsure whether he’s still the capable fighter he once was. Jiang doesn’t trust herself anymore, but Ryder does. They’re on the hunt for the Soviets’ new weapon, and Jiang’s forgotten past could lead them straight to it. Ryder just needs to get Jiang to trust in herself—and in him—before the weapon deploys.
Alpha’s Revenge by N.J. Walters
Adrian is a flawless Alpha assassin and avenging enforcer of the Resistance, devoted to the destruction of the oppressors. The first rule of empowerment? Never trust a stranger. Then comes Charity, a woman desperate to relinquish her heart and secrets to the cause, and just as eager to surrender her body to its rebel leader. She’s more than proved her loyalty—she’s become the most desirable and valuable weapon Adrian has. As Charity’s feelings for Adrian turn deeper and more dangerous with every move they make, it becomes clear. The greatest defense they can stage? Love.
All Rights Reserved by Gregory Scott Katsoulis
Speth Jime is anxious to celebrate her transition into adulthood. The moment she turns fifteen, Speth must pay for every word she speaks (“Sorry” is a flat ten dollars and a legal admission of guilt), for every nod ($0.99/sec), for every scream ($0.99/sec) and even every gesture of affection. But when Speth’s friend Beecher commits suicide rather than work off his family’s crippling debt, she can’t express her shock and dismay without breaking her Last Day contract and sending her family into Collection. Backed into a corner, Speth finds a loophole: rather than read her speech—rather than say anything at all—she closes her mouth and vows never to speak again. Speth’s unexpected defiance of tradition sparks a media frenzy, inspiring others to follow in her footsteps, and threatens to destroy her, her family and the entire city around them.
