Favorite Quote Friday—Broken Dawn

Happy Friday! We had the most wonderful rainy, thunder-rumbly week. I love thunderstorms, but we don't get them very often now. The temperatures even dropped, going from swelteringly hot to cool enough to open the windows and enjoy the breeze. Absolutely perfect writing weather. 😊

For those who have been asking when The Segonian (Aldebarian Alliance Book 2) will release: First, I am super excited that you're eager to read it. Second, I don't have an estimated date yet but plan to release it later this year. I'm writing it now and am really enjoying it. I love that so many of you liked Eliana in The Lasaran and the preview for Book 2. She's a very fun character to write. Like Zach and Bastien, I just never know what she's going to say or do. 😉

Speaking of the Aldebarian Alliance, outstanding reviews continue to roll in for The Lasaran. I've heard from quite a few readers who said they don't usually care for sci-fi romance but tried it anyway because they like my other series. And I was so happy to hear you enjoyed it! Bloggers, too. 

Flora's Musings gave The Lasaran a wonderful review. Here's another snippet:

"I’m already a big fan of Dianne Duvall’s books but sci-fi is not my usual reading genre. However, I couldn’t let The Lasaran pass me by and I’m so glad that I took a chance."

I'm a Voracious Reader gave it a great review, too.

"I stayed up WAY past my bedtime trying to finish this... I am so looking forward to the next book in this series and the Immortal Guardians."

It's time once more for Favorite Quote Friday! Only two and a half weeks to go until Broken Dawn releases. Woohoo! I'm so excited!! 

For today's favorite quote, I thought I'd give you another sneak peek into its pages that features Nick and Kayla (the hero and heroine).

Dragging his lips from hers, he buried his face in her neck. His arms tightened around her almost to the point of pain.

Frowning, wanting those lips on hers again, she hugged him back. “Nick?”

“You scared the hell out of me today,” he murmured, his deep voice hoarse.

Her heart turned over. He would only have such a reaction if he cared about her. How had she not realized that before? “I’m sorry.”

He shook his head. “Just let me hold you a minute.”

Smiling, she snuggled against him. 


I can't wait for you to meet these two. Fans of the Immortal Guardians series have been asking if they'll see any of the North Carolinian crew in this one. Yes, you will. BUT readers who are new to the series will not be lost if they dive in with Nick and Kayla's story.

Have a wonderful weekend!
