Favorite Quote Friday: News, Reviews & More

Happy Friday!  Well, this week had a bit of a rocky start, but I ended up getting some great news that has me smiling as we go into the weekend.  :-)

Shadows Strike, Immortal Guardians Book 6, received a fabulous review from RT Book Reviews.  Here's a snippet:

"As we learned in the previous chapter of Duvall's outstanding Immortal Guardians series, both humanity and the Guardians have more than vampires to worry about . . . Fans of terrific paranormal romance have hit the jackpot with Duvall and her electrifying series."
I was so thrilled to see this.  But the good news didn't end there.  :-)

Publishers Weekly gave "Phantom Embrace", my Immortal Guardians novella in the On the Hunt anthology a fantastic review:
"Four paranormal novellas, tied to their authors' series, explore very different ideas of love on the prowl . . .  Duvall's hauntingly beautiful novella, set in the world of the Immortal Guardians, portrays the deep love between two people who can never touch, with a wonderfully unexpected ending."
Hauntingly beautiful!  Isn't that sensational?  I really like Yuri and Cat's story, so I did a happy dance over this.  :-)

I'll probably celebrate the awesome reviews above with a giveaway or two over on my Facebook page this weekend, so be sure to stop by.  If you're active on Facebook and want to ensure you don't miss future giveaways, sneak peeks, and more, you may also want to Like my page, then (from the Liked menu) select Get Notifications.  Facebook only allows about 2-6% of people who like a page to see its posts in their news feed unless the page owner pays to "boost" the post.  Personally, I'd rather spend that money on giveaways, so . . .  :-)

If you select Get Notifications, you should see all my posts.  And don't worry.  I won't fill your feed with a dozen posts per day.  Writing limits my online time too much for that.  ;-)

I also got some packages in the mail to giveaway winners, reviewers, and some of my favorite author friends this week.  :-)  I can't wait to hear what they think of my latest Immortal Guardians stories.

It's time once more for Favorite Quote Friday!  Thanks to you, A Sorceress of His Own, the first book in my new series The Gifted Ones and my first indie release, is still in the top 10 on three of Amazon's Top 100 lists.  It also has earned 93 5-star reviews!  So I thought I would give you another peek into its pages today:  
The men waited nigh the base of the castle steps when she emerged.  All were heavily armed and armored.  All eyed her warily, uneasy with the task they had been given—to guard a woman labeled Sorceress as she fled the keep in the dead of night. 
Alyssa could not blame them.  The air was thick with menace, heavy with cloying humidity.  The moon had chosen not to bathe the earth with its illusory light.  In its place, a phantom fog danced around their ankles and wrapped skeletal arms around them.
Have a wonderful weekend!  :-)
