Seth has led the Immortal Guardians for thousands of years. With them fighting by his side, he has protected humans from psychotic vampires, defeated corrupt mercenary armies, defended military bases under attack, and more. But the latest enemy to rise against the Immortal Guardians has proven to be a formidable one, wielding almost as much power as Seth. His goal is simple. He wants to watch the world burn. And he will use every means at his disposal to accomplish it. Seth and his Immortal Guardians have succeeded thus far in staving off Armageddon despite heartbreaking losses. But they have never before faced such danger. Seth has only one wish: to protect his Immortal Guardians family and ensure the continuation of humanity by defeating his foe. But then Leah walks into his life and sparks a new desire.

Leah Somerson has suffered losses of her own. It has taken her a long time to rebuild her life and find some semblance of peace. Then one night a tall, dark, powerful immortal with what appears to be the weight of the world on his shoulders stumbles into her shop, and everything changes. Peace and contentment are no longer enough. Now she wants more. She wants to find happiness. She wants to erase the darkness in Seth’s eyes and replace it with love and laughter. She knows he’s different in ways that make most fear him. Even some of his immortal brethren keep a careful distance. But Leah will not. Nor will she shy away when danger strikes.

It's time for a special Favorite Quote Friday! Today I will offer you your very first sneak peek into the pages of Seth's book. The only thing I'll say to preface it is that this scene takes place in Leah's shop:
Adira straightened in Seth’s arms and stared at Leah. 
“Hi there, cutie,” Leah said and waggled her fingers. 
Her cheeks plumping with a big grin, Adira thrust her arms out and lunged toward Leah. 
Eyes widening, Leah hurried to catch her, inadvertently trapping Seth’s arm between the toddler and her breasts. “Oh! You gotta give me a little warning before you do that, sweetie,” she said on a laugh. 
“I’m sorry.” Seth wasn’t sure if he should retrieve Adira or relinquish her and extricate his arm. “Shall I take her back?” 
“No, it’s okay,” Leah responded with a good-natured smile. “She likes to sit in my lap when Ami brings her to storytime. So she knows me. Let me just… Here… How’s that?” She held Adira slightly away from her body so Seth could slide his arm out. 
Behind her, David’s face creased with a grin while Seth tried to minimize contact with her as he withdrew his arm. But she had lovely full breasts and hadn’t left him much space. 
Really? David asked telepathically, his dark eyes twinkling with amusement. Trying to cop a feel at your age? 
Seth shook his head. You’ve been spending too much time with Sheldon. 
David’s laughter filled his head.
She really did have beautiful breasts though. Seth was surprised to feel another tingle of awareness slither through him.

I hope you will enjoy reading or listening to this book as much as I enjoyed writing it. πŸ₯°

Have a wonderful weekend!



  1. Cannot wait for this one Dianne!!!

  2. This comment has been removed by the author.

  3. Oh! I somehow guessed that Adira would be involved with how Seth meets Leah. Even more excited now.

  4. Exhilarating! Cannot wait to read this book! Dianne Duvall you are my Wonder Woman for paranormal authors! No doubt in my mind this book will not disappoint!

  5. Omg it's so good I can't wait for August 20th

  6. The sneak peek just make me more impatient for the 20th of August to arrive. It's soooo exciting.

  7. Preordered and can't wait. So looking foward to reading Seth's book.

  8. I ordered back in June and can’t wait to read Seth’s story. Thanks for the snippet of the story.

  9. πŸ’•πŸ’•πŸ’•πŸ’•πŸ’•πŸ’•πŸ’•πŸ’•πŸ’•πŸ’•πŸ’•πŸ’•πŸ’• I don’t know what else to say

  10. David knows what's up B]

  11. I have a suspicion that Adira also knows her importance to her Grandpa Seth. I may be reading too much into the exchange but I can’t help my vivid imagination. Thank you Dianne! for such wonderful characters.

  12. This is so exciting and definitely made me chuckle. I can't wait to read it.

  13. This story is going to be so much more than the "hero gets the girl" trope. I cannot wait to see how Seth deals with the things thrown at him in this book.
