Favorite Quote Friday #143

Happy Friday!  What an exciting week!  The countdown has begun!  Only 4 days to go before Night Unbound is released!  Woohooo!!!!  I have so much to share with you!


The reviews are steadily rolling in, and I could not be more pleased!  Here are some more of my favorite snippets:

“When I read Duvall's first work, I knew this was going to be a brilliant series. Duvall's storytelling is simply spellbinding, sucking you in and keeping you invested. I highly recommend any paranormal romance reader to check out the Immortal Guardian series, you won't be disappointed.”
—Tome Tender


“Wow! Where do I start? The chemistry between all the characters is spot-on. The author effortlessly makes you believe they have lived and battled together for centuries with their fierce loyalty and easy banter. They made me laugh out loud and yes, shed tears. I loved every minute of it.”
—Reading in Pajamas

“I love the Immortal Guardians! Zach and Lisette are now my second favorite characters just after Bastian and Melanie. I re-read this story after I finished. I just didn’t want to let them go.”
—eBookObsessed

“A paranormal must have of epic proportions. I’ve been smitten with Dianne’s characters and her Immortal Guardian world since the first book in the series, but this story took everything I like about it and super-sized it.  Night Unbound took my heart through the emotional paces. From hilarity . . .  To blazing sensuality that turned my blood to molten lava . . . To delightful camaraderie . . . To swoon worthy and heart achingly lovely moments.”
—TJ Loves to Read

A lot of readers have been asking about Audible.  Night Unbound will be released on Audible on September 2nd, the same day as the paperback and ebook.  But it has not yet become available for Pre-Order.  If the Pre-Order button appears on Audible before Release Day, I'll let you know.  Until then, you can listen to an Audio Sample on Tantor Audio's website.

It's time once more for Favorite Quote Friday!  In anticipation of next week's release, I thought I would give you a brief excerpt of Night Unbound:  
She smiled and grabbed the vampires’ sticky clothing.  
“What?” Zach asked as he helped.  
“Nothing.  It’s just . . . ”  She straightened.  “I like that you let me be me,” she said with a shrug.  “I like that you think I’m strong.”  
“You are strong.”  
“But you also appreciate my femininity.”  
“I more than appreciate it,” he said with a leer.  
She grinned.  “Yet you aren’t overprotective like my brothers and Seth, all of whom can drive me up the wall sometimes.”  
“Oh, but I am.  I cringe every time a battle arises.  And my inner Neanderthal awakens whenever I think you’re in danger.”  
“Your inner Neanderthal?”  
He nodded.  “I believe you met him when I ordered you to never defy me again.”  
She winked.  “Your inner Neanderthal gave me multiple orgasms.”
A huge thank you to everyone who has pre-ordered Night Unbound.  I can't wait to hear what you think of Zach and Lisette's story.  I hope you'll enjoy reading it as much as I enjoyed writing it.  :-)

Have a wonderful weekend!

Favorite Quote Friday #142

Happy Friday!  Only a week and a half to go until Night Unbound is released!  I'm so excited!  Reviews are beginning to roll in, and I could not be more thrilled by the responses Zach and Lisette's story is generating!


Here are some of my favorite review snippets so far:


"Fans of paranormal romance who haven’t discovered this series yet are really missing out on something extraordinary. Ms. Duvall has consistently proved her talent with every installment by delivering heart stopping action, thrilling escapes, sizzling romance and heroes and heroines that touch and engage the emotions of a reader. Every single book so far has been almost impossible to put down once I started and Night Unbound continues the tradition. I read it in one day, all 400+ pages. It was that compelling."
—Long and Short Reviews


"Fans of Dianne Duvall's Immortal Guardians will rejoice in this fifth installment of her blazing, fast-paced paranormal series. Full of fascinating characters, a unique and wonderfully imaginative premise, and scorching hot relationships, this is a book that is thoroughly enjoyable in and of itself . . . This is a totally different kind of paranormal series with characters that are varied, strong, and compelling, dangers that are very real and relationships that are completely engaging. As far as I am concerned, the sixth installment can't come fast enough!"
—The Romance Reviews


"NIGHT UNBOUND features heart-thumping and masterful fight scenes, and Zach and Lisette indulge in some exquisite sex scenes. This book is an excellent addition to the series, and I can't wait to see what Duvall gives us next!"
—Fresh Fiction

"Book after book, Duvall brings her readers complex,
fascinating tales of romance, danger and loyalty."
—RT Book Reviews, 4.5 stars

It's time once more for Favorite Quote Friday!  For today's selection, I chose a quote from one of my favorite scenes in Night Unbound.
A wave of power rippled through the room like the blast wave of an A-bomb, Zach at its epicenter.   
Ethan swore as he and every mortal and immortal present, save Seth and David, were swept off their feet.
I love that scene!  Can't wait for you to read it.  :-)

Have a wonderful weekend!

Dianne

It's time once more for Favorite Quote Friday!  I'm starting to hear from reviewers and readers who received ARCs of Night Unbound and am thrilled by their responses.  I'll start posting some of the reviews soon.  Until then, here's a quote from Night Unbound that features Lisette (the heroine) and Ethan (a fellow Immortal Guardian):

Lisette stared down at the vamps, heart racing, body aching from the beating she had just taken, cuts stinging.  What the hell? 
"Okay," Ethan said, breath coming in gasps.  "I'm not going to lie to you.  That is the freakiest sh** I've ever seen."  He looked from one vampire to the other, his blood-splattered face stunned.  "And I've seen some freak sh**." 
She nodded.  As had she.

Have a great weekend!

Dianne

It's time once more for Favorite Quote Friday!  For today's selection, I've chosen a quote from Night Unbound that features Zach (the mysterious winged hero) and Lisette (the heroine):
The silence stretched. 
Stepping closer to him, she reached out and took his hand. 
Zach's heart began to slam against his ribs as Lisette twined her slender fingers through his. 
Her hand was so small and delicate within his.  Her touch warm. 
Giving his hand a light squeeze, she offered him a shy smile, turned, and led him into her home.
I'm so pleased by the response Night Unbound is getting from reviewers and readers who have won ARCs in contests.  :-)

Have a wonderful weekend!
