Favorite Quote Friday

Happy Friday!  I hope you had a good week, because you made mine pretty awesome.  :-)

“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.”

Thanks so much, all of you who pre-ordered Phantom Embrace after my Cover Reveal last Friday.  You made it leap onto three of Amazon's Top 100 Bestseller lists.  Woohoo!!  You're the best!  

I hope you'll enjoy it.  I really like Yuri and Cat's story.  I think I may have already mentioned this when it was originally released in the On the Hunt anthology last year, but I've been wanting to write Cat's story ever since Marcus encountered her in Darkness Dawns and Night Reigns.  I'm so glad she and Yuri could find happiness together.  :-)

It's time once more for Favorite Quote Friday!  For today's selection, I thought I would give you another quote from Shadows Strike, one of my latest releases.  This particular quote is taken from one of my favorite scenes in the novel, in which David—the immensely powerful Second in Command of the Immortal Guardians—is proving he is indeed telepathic by reading a skeptic's mind.  :-)
[David] looked at Tim. “Yes, I can read your mind . . . Yes, every thought.” His look turned resigned. “Perry the Platypus.  Camel.  Pink.  Jay Z.  Doc McStuffins Pizza.  Enough.  You’re giving me a headache.” 
I'll be spending the weekend with Robert, Bethany, and teenaged Marcus again (Rendezvous With Yesterday, The Gifted Ones Book 2).  Have a great weekend!

Cover Reveal & Favorite Quote Friday

Happy Friday!  I have something exciting to share with you:

The cover of Phantom Embrace!  Woohoo!!  If this is your first time hearing about it, Phantom Embrace is the Immortal Guardians novella I wrote for the On the Hunt anthology.  It will be released as a solo novella on June 28, 2016, tells Yuri's story, and is now available for pre-order.  I've been so pleased by the reviews it has received, so I hope you'll pre-order a copy if you haven't read it yet.  It's only $1.99!  :-)

I had to drop offline for a bit.  And when I came back, I was very happy to discover that Shadows Strike made several Top 10 and Best Books of 2015 lists:

I had such fun writing Ethan and Heather's story.  I'm glad so many readers are enjoying it.  Thank you so much!

I also made Amorous Reads Top 10 New-To-Me Authors of 2015 list with my Immortal Guardians series.  :-)

It's time once more for Favorite Quote Friday!  I've been getting a lot of requests for Aidan's story, so I thought today I would give you a mini-excerpt from Shadows Strike that features him.  For those who haven't read Night Unbound or Shadows Strike, Aidan is a nearly 3,000-year-old immortal who is searching for a woman who can love him and banish his loneliness.  :-)

Seth closed his eyes and did a quick mental search for Aidan. Once he found him, Seth touched Bastien’s and Cliff’s shoulders and teleported them to the Celt’s side.

Aidan smiled at them, a tire iron held in one hand. “I thought I felt a disturbance in the force.”

Cliff laughed.

Bastien smiled.

Seth shook his head. “What have you been doing?”

Aidan held up the tire iron. “Helping a lovely woman change a flat tire.”

Bastien arched a brow. “A lovely gifted one?”

“As it happens, yes.”

Seth sighed. “Did you flatten her tire, Aidan?”

“Yes, I did,” the nearly three-thousand-year-old immortal admitted without remorse. 

I'll be spending this weekend with Robert, Bethany, and a teenaged Marcus (Rendezvous With Yesterday).  I hope you'll have a fun weekend, too!
