Favorite Quote Friday #75

Happy Friday!  This has been an exciting week.  :-)

I received my Darkness Rises cover flats!  Woohoo!  Here's the back cover blurb:

Dianne Duvall returns to the world of the Immortal Guardians, where danger — and desire — make every decision count . . .

Krysta is used to getting the drop on vampires.  Her "special abilities" aren't much, but the plan is simple — she plays helpless pretty young thing to lure them in.  Then her shoto swords come out and it's bye-bye, bloodsucker.  Until one night she finds herself with an unexpected ally.  He's a vampire, all right, but different.  Mysterious.  Handsome.  And more interested in saving her skin than draining it.

Étienne has been an Immortal Guardian for two hundred years — long enough to know that Krysta is special.  He can't stop thinking about her long legs, even more than her short swords.  Then he discovers the vamps she's exterminating have friends in high places, and the Guardians are in danger, too.  He'll have to accept Krysta's help to save them.  The stakes for a mortal are high.  But the cost to his heart might be higher . . . 

Darkness Rises is the fourth book in my Immortal Guardians series and will be released on October 1, 2013.

Publishers Weekly gave Predatory (May 7, 2013) a nice review.  Here's what they said about my Immortal Guardians novella "In Still Darkness":

Readers will appreciate the rich characterizations and kick-butt action of Duvall’s “In Still Darkness,” as Richart d’Alençon, a 200-year-old Guardian, woos charming Jenna McBride with warmth and passion while keeping his vampire-hunting life secret

You can read the full review HERE.
Predatory received a great 4-star review from Sofia Loves Reading or Happy Ever After is So Once Upon a Time:

"In my opinion Predatory had it all.  A little bit of action, romance, suspense, fantasy.  It's a worth reading book and I totally recommend it."

She gave my novella "In Still Darkness"  5 stars!:  "I loved this story!!!"

I also gave away a signed Predatory ARC and swag in a contest on my facebook page this week.  If you haven't liked my page yet, I hope you'll hop over, like it, and join the fun!  :-)

It's time once more for Favorite Quote Friday!  Marcus and Ami have been in my thoughts a lot lately, so I thought I would choose another quote from Night Reigns, the second book in my Immortal Guardians series, in which they are the hero and heroine:

Something about that smile, the dark anticipation that filled his handsome features, produced a flutter of butterfly wings in her belly.

Have a great weekend!
