About the Book

The Duchess Hunt
(Once Upon a Dukedom #2)
by Lorraine Heath

ebook, 368 pages
Published September 28th 2021 by Avon
New York Times bestselling author Lorraine Heath continues her Once Upon a Dukedom series with this lush love story of a duke who discovers what he desires in a wife may not be what he needs...

Hugh Brinsley-Norton, the Duke of Kingsland, is in need of a duchess. However, restoring the dukedom—left in ruins by his father—to its former glory demands all his time, with little room for sentiment. He places an advert encouraging the single ladies of the ton to write why they should be the one chosen, and leaves it to his efficient secretary to select his future wife.

If there exists a more unpleasant task in the world than deciding who is to marry the man you love, Penelope Pettypeace certainly can’t imagine what it might be. Still, she is determined to find the perfect bride for her clueless, yet ruthlessly charming employer.

But when an anonymous note threatens to reveal truths best hidden, Kingsland has no choice but to confront the danger with Penelope at his side. Beguiled by the strong-willed, courageous beauty, he realizes he’s willing to risk everything, including his heart, to keep her safe within his arms. Could it be the duchess he’s hunting for has been in front of him all along?

A Lot Like Christmas
(Blue Moon Bay #2)
by Jennifer Snow

Paperback, 336 pages
Published September 28th 2021 by Entangled: Amara
This Christmas season, love comes where you least expect it.

For Jessica Connolly, there is no better place than her coastal hometown of Blue Moon Bay. She has a wonderful family, supportive best friends, and a successful bakery on Main Street. Unfortunately, every time she designs one of her ex-boyfriends' wedding cakes, she's reminded just how unlucky she is with love...and that she's a good luck charm for men to find their happily ever after. With someone else. The minute they break up. So she's decided to be done with love.

Dr. Mitch Jameson is more comfortable traveling the world with Doctors Without Borders than staying in one place. He just needs to survive the holidays in his small hometown before he can leave again. The beautiful, intriguing bakery owner with an aversion to dating might be just who he needs to occupy his restless heart.

From sipping hot chocolates at the local festival of lights to early morning dessert deliveries, Jessica and Mitch rediscover the spirit of the holidays. But when the 25 days of Christmas are over, will their romance be over, too?

Romantic comedy screenwriter, Lily Dunn, watches her life go from happily ever after to crappily ever after when she gets dumped on live television.
Facing her overprotective family at her cousin's wedding is not ideal. They think she’s not cut out for cutthroat Hollywood. How can she prove she’s moved on? Pretend to have a new man, of course. The only rule is: keep it fake.
But the chemistry with her former high school crush burns hotter than an open fire. Can two bruised and battered hearts find the kind of love that only happens in the movies?

About the Book

Serve 'N' Protect
(Federal K-9 #5)
by Tee O'Fallon

ebook, 395 pages
Published September 20th 2021 by Entangled Publishing, LLC (Amara)
Ambushed and left for dead, U.S. Secret Service K-9 Officer Markus York is on the mend and laying low in a safe house while his team tracks down his attacker. But Markus isn’t good at sitting still. Even with his K-9, Ghost, for company, he gets restless and decides now is the perfect time to do some repairs around the house…and inadvertently tears open his wounds.

Fresh out of a bad relationship that ended after a car accident left her with limited mobility, freelance accountant Cassidy Morgan has sworn off men. At least, that’s the plan. Until a frantically barking dog leads her to a neighbor’s house where she finds a mysterious man out cold and bleeding on the floor...and mumbling things like “no, they’ll find me” when she tries to call an ambulance.

Yeah, that’s not at all concerning.

Despite Markus’s surly attitude, Cassidy senses there’s something else at work beneath his rugged, keep-your-distance exterior. Whatever it is, it’s sexy as hell.

With someone still trying to kill him, Markus doesn’t want an innocent to get hurt, let alone take care of him.

If only his dog wasn’t crazy in love with her.

If only the chemistry between Markus and Cassidy didn’t explode whenever they were in the same room.

If only Cassidy wasn’t a target now, too.

#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?

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.
