New Adult New Releases: July

Read under a tree!

Hey friends! It's that time again: time to learn about all the spicy/fun new adult new releases that are coming our way this month!

This month's releases are as hot as the weather outside, so let's waste no time and dive right into them (and then maybe go take a looooong cold shower to cool off!)

The complete Vampires in Wonderland Series in one collection full of dark fantasy and romance. This NA box set includes Maddie, Chess, Knave, and the prequel short story Rav.

Tensions rise when the Queen of Hearts threatens to take down Maddie and Noah's sisters, putting both their worlds in peril. They must combine their strengths to bring their enemy to her knees and protect their hearts … or risk losing them.

Vampires in Wonderland Box Set

If you love spicy romance, forced proximity, enemies to lovers, friends to lovers, hot vampire males, and strong female leads, then you won't want to miss this box set.

Betha is still mourning the loss of her mother when a war council meeting takes a jarring turn. A terrified gargoyle appears, begging for help in his realm where angels and demons are battling while innocent lives are caught in the crossfire.

Call of the Traveler

You'll find found family tropes in this portal fantasy.

Bound by Ravens (July 14)

All I had to do was steal a ring from a mainland witch for the Thieves’ Guild that owned me. Easy enough, right? The reward would bring me closer to earning my freedom. And stars above, I wanted off this floating luxury island.

But then he showed up, a cocky thief from a rival guild, and ruined all my plans.

Bound by Ravens

This new adult romantasy features a medium burn romance between rival thieves to lovers, along with forced proximity, who did this to you, grumpy/sunshine, he falls first, and fated mates tropes.

Technical knockouts are MMA fighter Kane Macleod’s trademark move. His match tonight proved that point again. He has two more fights, then he’ll leave the cage for good. But first, he needs to see that his mother and sister are set for life.

Fight for Darkness

This first-in-series features a badass FMC and tortured MMC, and is a dark urban fantasy with witches and dragons. Trigger warnings: rape in a character's past, PTSD, violence.

There’s something wrong with the werewolves. Turning rogue without rhyme or reason, immortal predators are stalking human prey. If the outbreak of violence continues, their hidden society risks exposure to humankind.

Within Immortal Beasts

This third-in-series features an alpha male and underdog heroine as fated mates. Trigger warnings: The heroine comes from an abusive relationship.

Drue Emmerson, noblewoman-turned-ranger, wants one thing: vengeance. With her family slain by the vicious shadow wraiths, she’s determined to defend her fallen kingdom. And that means carving out the hearts of every dark creature she can find.

Slaying the Shadow Prince

If you like fiery heroines and tortured heroes, as well as forced proximity, found family and touch-her-and-you-die vibes, you will devour this sexy, addictive fantasy romance.

The Fae's Bride (July 24)

Alessia has more to worry about than the handsome new count everyone is fawning over. Mama's health is declining, the villa needs repairs, and then there are her four sisters who always seem to be either in trouble or causing it.

With his Fae blood, Massimo never expected to inherit the title of count, nor the lands that accompanied it, and he certainly never expected to fall for the town's quirky witch—especially when she clearly wants nothing to do with him.

The Fae's Bride

Within this gaslamp fantasy realm, you’ll find witches, fae, warlocks, house elves, he falls first, forced proximity/star-crossed romance and more.

Fifteen centuries before the catastrophic and world-altering event known as the Sundering, the Realm of the Sun is ruled by the mighty Fae kingdom of Valenhaar, where humans are enslaved and killed for sport.

At her coronation, an ominous prophecy is uttered about Crown Princess Janella, signaling a time of change and upheaval. A series of events puts her in close proximity with a human servant who possesses a dark secret.

All That Glitters is Not Gold

If you love enemies to lovers, tragic romance, forced proximity, chosen one, and Fae vs human tropes, you'll love this standalone fantasy book.
