#Interview with Author R.A. Salvatore of Starlight Enclave

Lexi: There’s nothing better than getting together with a group of friends, sharing a drink, and catching up. Well…nothing better unless you’re Drizzt and you and your friends are epic warriors and all that stand between the dark forces because in that case you get together with your friends, drink, and then wage war!! And who better to get inside Drizzt’s head than the author—welcome to the blog, R.A. Salvatore!!

Bob: It's great to be here, and let me second the notion of “buddy fantasy,” with a group of trusted friends walking the road of adventure.

Lexi: Fantasy is my catnip and books about groups of friends are a double dose! For readers, a new Drizzt book is a celebration because we get to revisit old friends. Do you feel this way, or are you always working on the next book and thus you never leave the Forgotten Realms? 

Bob: I’m always working on the next book, but only every other one takes place in the Forgotten Realms. I visit my DemonWars world of Corona regularly, and dive into new lands (or old lands, as the case may be) fairly regularly as well – as with “The Color of Dragons,” a YA fantasy novel I co-wrote with Erika Lewis that’s coming out in October.

Lexi: I’m not sure I’d leave if I had a group like Drizzt has. But in your newest release, Starlight Enclave, you give us two roads. Drizzt as he embarks on his spiritual journey, and Jarlaxle and Zaknafein as they look for artifacts. Two different arcs, but they impact one another. Which storyline was easiest for you to write?

Read an #Excerpt from I'm Only Wicked with You by Julie Anne Long

About the Book

I'm Only Wicked with You
(The Palace of Rogues #3)
by Julie Anne Long

ebook, 400 pages
Published August 24th 2021 by Avon
USA Today bestselling author Julie Anne Long continues her Palace of Rogues series with a brand-new romance about an ambitious American and a headstrong British heiress.

He's the battle-hardened son of a bastard, raised in the wilds of New York. She's the sheltered, blue-blooded darling of the London broadsheets, destined to marry a duke. Their worlds could only collide in a boardinghouse by the London docks...and when they do, the sparks would ignite all of England.

Nothing can stop Hugh Cassidy's drive to build an American empire...unless it's his new nemesis, the arrogant, beautiful, too-clever-by-half Lady Lillias Vaughn. The fascination is mutual. The temptation is merciless. And the inevitable indiscretion? Soul-searing—and the ruination of them both. Hugh's proposal salvages Lillias' honor but kills their dreams for their futures...until they arrive at a plan that could honorably set them free.

But unraveling their entanglement inadvertently uncovers enthralling truths: about Lillias' wounded, tender heart and fierce spirit. About Hugh's stunning gentleness, depth, and courage. Soon, Hugh knows that as surely as he'd fight a thousand battles to win her...the best way to love Lillias means breaking his own heart.

Jenna Demptation’s life has been one hardship after another. When her older sister becomes the PR manager for Dirt Cherry and strong-arms Jenna to help for the summer, Jenna is happy to get away from her crappy day-to-day life. Until too-good-looking-to-be-real Venom sets his sights on Jenna and sets her nerves into overdrive. Jenna makes an art of shying away from Mr. Hot-Pants McHottie.

About the Book

Saving Danger
(Red Stone Security #17)
by Katie Reus

Kindle Edition
Published August 24th 2021 by KR Press, LLC
To maintain her cover and keep her family off her back, they fake a relationship.

Having spent her whole life trying to prove she’s just as capable as her three older brothers, art retrieval expert Ivy Danger has landed the biggest gig of her career, one that will pay off the mortgage of the animal shelter she owns. That is, if she doesn’t die before finishing the job. Even if she locates the stolen art, the violent gang of thieves won’t give up their million-dollar payday without a fight. She has one person she can turn to for help—Nash Harris. Security expert, her brother’s best friend…and the gorgeous man of her fantasies who treats her like a kid sister. Not that she’d do anything about her attraction anyway—not when it would screw up her family dynamic if things went sideways between them.

Now it’s impossible to tell what’s real and what’s not.

Despite having known Ivy forever, “brotherly” is the last thing Nash feels for the sexy troublemaker. She’s it for him. The One. He’s known it for a while…but convincing Ivy is another matter. When they have to fake a relationship for her current job, things shift between them. They’ve worked together before, but she’s in over her head with this latest job. But before anything can come of it, he’ll have to keep her alive when she’s targeted by a dangerous group known for violent retaliation. Nash will do whatever it takes to keep her safe, to prove she can trust him—on the job, with her life, and with her heart.

Read an #Excerpt from Along Came a Lady by Christi Caldwell

About the Book

Along Came a Lady
(All the Duke's Sins #1)
by Christi Caldwell
Mass Market Paperback, 320 pages
Published August 24th 2021 by Berkley Books
The brooding, illegitimate son of a duke meets his match in the determined woman hired to transform him into a gentleman from USA Today bestselling author Christi Caldwell—perfect for fans of Bridgerton.

Rafe Audley lives to thwart his father, the Duke of Bentley. The ne'er do well who abandoned his children claims he wants to make up for his failures, but Rafe only cares about protecting the people of his mining community and providing for his three siblings, who've been his sole responsibility since childhood. So far, Rafe has turned away the duke's man of affairs, solicitor, and other interlopers, until the clever duke sends the unlikeliest of people to convince Rafe to join English High Society—a bold and intriguing woman.

Edwina Dalrymple has never failed a charge. She's quite adept at successfully transforming young women of the gentry and daughters of newly minted lords to take their place in society. Taming a bastard son of a duke will be child's play, plus this job promises to enhance her reputation within the ton. All she has to do is fetch the wayward Rafe and groom him to be presentable to Polite Society.
As the tenacious teacher and her domineering, stubborn, refuses-to-be-taught pupil engage in a fiery battle of wills, their chemistry ignites and the true lesson becomes clear: opposites attract and hearts must be heard.
