The Lasaran Release Week

Happy Friday! Thank you! Thank you! Thank you for making this such a fun, exciting, and awesome release week! I am so thrilled by your responses to The Lasaran and my new Aldebarian Alliance series! I was hoping you would like Taelon and Lisa's story. ๐Ÿ˜Š I admit I stayed up all night Monday night because some of you mentioned you were going to start reading it the moment the ebook hit your device and I couldn't wait to see your initial reactions pop up on Facebook. ๐Ÿ˜€

Thank you, audiobook lovers, for making The Lasaran an Audible Best Seller! Taelon and Lisa's audiobook hit #1 on multiple Audible/Amazon Best Seller lists, including the two shown above.

And the ebook lovers out there catapulted The Lasaran to the tops of multiple Amazon and other retailer Best Seller lists. Thank you, everyone who pre-ordered a copy or purchased a copy this week. Release Week sales are very important for authors, helping them hit bestseller lists and gain more exposure. The more sales and reviews a book receives, the more Amazon will share and recommend it to others, introducing it to new readers. ๐Ÿ˜Š

And the reviews...

Caffeinated Reviewer gave The Lasaran audiobook a fantastic 5-star review. You can read the full review HERE. This week has been so hectic that I just started listening to the audiobook myself last night and am really enjoying it. Kirsten Potter has done yet another stellar job of bringing the characters to life.

Book Dragon gave Taelon and Lisa's story a fabulous 5-star review, too. And equally awesome reviews have been rolling in. Here are a few from Amazon and/or Goodreads:

"Let me first state that I do not normally read sci-fi romance, so I was a little worried when I first heard about Dianne Duvall’s new series. Since I love her Immortal Guardians series, I gave this a chance, and boy am I glad that I did!!! I absolutely LOVED this book."
—Cynthia Trotman

"Just amazing. The characters are beautifully written being both memorable and engaging, the pace is swift and steady with nary a falter, and the overall arc of the story is sweeping, moving, and high octane. There's also plenty of humour to play counterpoint to the deeper and/or darker moments."

"Tightly written, action packed, and with awesome character development, the author really outdid her previous great works with this one. Fantastic doesn't even begin to describe it!"

"Again! Dianne Duvall has absolutely done it again. I loved this new world. Another laugh out loud, action packed book."
—Amazon Customer

"Whoa! Awesome book! More please! I couldn't put this book down until I finished it. Another Dianne Duvall literary masterpiece."
—Tiffany Nguyen

It's time once more for Favorite Quote Friday! Since I"m still celebrating Release Week, I thought I would share a brief excerpt of The Lasaran that features Taelon and Lisa (the hero and heroine):

“I would protect you with the last breath left in my body, Lisa.”

She believed him. Sliding her fingers into his hair, she drew his head down and claimed his lips in a longer, deeper kiss. His arms tightened around her. His tongue delved inside to stroke her own. Desire swept through her, heating her blood and driving her to fist his hair.

He groaned. And Lisa knew it wasn’t from pain this time, but need. He buried one hand in her hair and tilted her head so he could deepen the kiss even more. His other hand caressed her back and pressed her closer, reminding her that they were both naked.

What the hell was she doing?

She broke the kiss and stared up into emerald green.

Taelon affected her in ways no other man had.

“What are we doing?” she whispered.

A twinkle of mischief entered his eyes. “Breaking a number of Lasaran laws.”

Her lips twitched. “Aside from that.”

He shook his head. “I don’t know. I’m so drawn to you, Lisa.”

“I’m drawn to you, too.”

If you haven't read/listened to it yet, I hope you'll enjoy Taelon and Lisa's story. I really love these two together.

Many of those who have already read/listened to it have been asking when Book 2 will release. I don't have a release date yet, but I'm writing it now and am having a lot of fun with it.

Stay safe!
