I just love being a pantser. So many interesting things would never have happened in my stories if I had carefully plotted them out before writing them.
Incidentally, a lot of readers have been asking me when the next Immortal Guardians book will release. I've gone indie now, so I won't have an exact release date for Aidan's book until about three months prior to the release. But I'm thinking it will release in Summer 2017. I hope you'll enjoy it!
New reviews have been pouring in for both books in The Gifted Ones series. I was so thrilled by them that I wanted to share a few with you.
A Sorceress of His Own
The Gifted Ones Book 1
"This book was AMAZING! I loved everyone in this book. OMG! So romantic!! I cried so many times. This was perfect. Can't think of one bad thing about it and that's rare for me."
"Duvall does it again with a great storyline, lovable characters and all the mysticism I crave. Thanks for another great series, looking forward to reading more!"
"Brilliant. Hated that it had to end."
"Love it. It has everything. Strong female character, heated love scenes, magic, battles, and intrigue. I've already read it 3 times and i just go it. couldn't help myself."
"If you like Nalini Singh and JR Ward and Rebecca Zanetti and have not tried a book by Dianne Duvall, I highly recommend that you do."
"Delightful book, captivating with adventure, romance and magic. My favorite thing about this book is that the author was able to portray what true love is all about."
"Great story. Every character intriguing and main characters just wonderful. Very fulfilling reading. Exactly my kind of romance and fantasy."
Rendezvous with Yesterday
The Gifted Ones Book 2
"Loved everything about this book! The characters, the world, the writing style. I like this one just as much as the first one if not more. I loved the small glimpse it gave of Marcus and the interaction he and Seth had in this book. It takes on a life of its own and sweeps the reader away. I forget that I'm reading and for me can't get better than that"
"I LOVE LOVE LOVE the Immortal Guardians series and Gifted Ones. I couldn't put this book down! Hot, steamy, I loved the characters and throughout the book there were parts that made me laugh till I had tears in my eyes. Such a wonderful book, series, and I hope there's more in the future!"
"Great book. It was worth the wait. Loved every minute of it and I hope we get more from this series."
"I would recommend this book to anyone who is familiar with Lara Adrian, Christine Feehan and Sherrilyn Kenyon. I loved every moment while reading this story and was sorry to reach the end. Can't wait for the next installment."
—Mama Bear / Cynthia
"Such a great series! Love Bethany and Robert's love story and more on Marcus's past! The Immortal Guardians series is one of my favorites. Thanks for the Gifted Ones!"
"I absolutely love this series as well as the Immortal Guardians. Highly recommend reading these stories. Am always looking forward to more"

It's time once more for Favorite Quote Friday! Since Aidan has been on my mind so much, I thought today I would share a scene from Shadows Strike—Immortal Guardians Book 6 (can be read as a stand-alone novel)—that features him. For those who haven't read the book, I thought I would mention that little Adira is the daughter of Aidan's friends. In this scene, Aidan is trying to protect her from their enemy. :-)
Aidan tugged his coat closed around the baby wailing against his chest and teleported to Telfer, Western Australia.
“It’s okay, little one,” he murmured as he instantly teleported again to Svalbard, Norway. “It’s okay. Uncle Aidan will keep you safe.”
He took her to Motuo, China. Then to La Rinconada, Peru. Easter Island. Kosaka, Japan.
He spent mere seconds in each destination before he moved on, fearing Gershom would appear at any moment and try to tear the babe from his arms.
Aidan vowed he would die before he let the Other have her.
In McMurdo, Antarctica, he began to croon a song his mother had sung to him when he was a boy. It took them through Colmar, France. Kiffa, Mauritania. Burano, Italy. Monsanto, Portugal.
The babe ceased weeping in Bibury, England.
Her breath stopped hiccupping in Mombasa, Kenya.
Her little head began to bob with weariness in Meissen, Germany.
She fell asleep in Salta, Argentina.
When it comes to Aidan, I think readers have mentioned this scene and the "Lotto" scene in Night Unbound more than any others. :-)
Have a wonderful weekend!
