Favorite Quote Friday—The Lasaran

Hello, all! I hope you and your loved ones are all safe and well. I admit it feels a little weird to celebrate a new release with so much happening in the world, but boy have you provided me with a wonderful, much-needed distraction.

Thank you so much! Reviews for The Lasaran have been rolling in and I could not be more excited about them.

Audio Lovers Blog gave The Lasaran a fantastic review. You can read the full spoiler-free review HERE.

EbookObsessed gave The Lasaran a fantastic review, too. Here's another quote from it:

Dianne Duvall never disappoints. I have fallen in love with each and every character she has written for us.  Every story from Dianne has been amazing whether it was an Immortal Guardian or a Gifted One and now the Aldebarian Alliance. I am excited for each and every story she gives us and can’t wait for more."

And here are some of the awesome reviews appearing on Amazon and Goodreads:

"ABSOLUTELY MAGNIFICENT. Dianne Duvall did it again. Once you start reading you can put it down. It grabs you from the get go and after you finish reading, you want to continue. The flow between Inmortal Guardians and The Lasaran is flawless and easy to follow, but readers won’t have to read the IG books in order to understand and LOVE The Lasaran. I LOVE IT!!!!!!!!!!!"
—Lourdes Caamano

"I loved this book so much. I simply consumed it. So exciting and full of surprises that I did not see coming."
—Greta Riordan

"Wow. I'm always iffy about starting a spin off series by a favorite author, I should have known that wouldn't be a problem here. This first book was such a delight to read. The humor I've come to know from Dianne, along with all the adventure, intrigue, and of course the passion are definitely found in this wonderful book!"
—Shannon Garner

"Mind Blown!!!!! BEST BOOK EVER!!!!!!! When I tell you Dianne Duvall delivered....she DELIVERED! I loved Lisa and Taelon's storyline and that it gave you just enough suspense. I'm already ready for the next book!"

"Spinoff perfection!!! Taelon and Lisa's story is perfect! Absolutely loved how seamlessly it flows from the IG series. I NEED the next book ... I have a girl crush on Eliana !! Pick up all of Dianne Duvall books , you will not be disappointed!"
—Cindy Foreman

"Ok. I'm totally hooked. This is the beginning of a great new series by Dianne Duvall and I could not put it down. Do yourself a favor and read The Lasaran. You won't be disappointed."
—Roseanne Lobbezoo

"This book kept me at the edge of my seat! ... I can’t wait for more!!!"
—Jennifer Valtierra

It's time once more for Favorite Quote Friday! Today I thought I would share another fun excerpt of The Lasaran that features Taelon and Lisa (the hero and heroine) in a quiet moment:

He strode out of the bathroom naked.

Lisa’s eyes widened when she saw him, then swiftly shut.

He grinned as pink once more filled her cheeks.

The mattress dipped beneath his weight as he sat on it.

Her eyes flew open as her side of the mattress tilted up and rolled her toward him.

Taelon rested a hand on her shoulder to steady her, then slipped beneath the covers and lay down.

Silence fell.

“Would you tell me about your planet?” she asked softly as she studied him in the dim light.

He rolled onto his side to face her and eased forward until their heads shared the same pillow. “Of course.” He hoped one day to show it to her. If he succeeded in contacting Ari’k…

Well, he wouldn’t leave Lisa here on this barbaric planet where more men and women like those at the base would hunt her. He just needed to convince her to take a leap of faith and join him when he departed.

To that end, he began to describe the beauty of his world. Lasara, the moons that orbited it, his people, the other populated planets in his solar system. He kept his voice low, his words carefully modulated. And soon her long lashes lowered until they rested upon her cheeks. Her breathing changed, deepening as sleep claimed her.

He gently brushed her soft hair back from her face, tucking it behind one delicate ear.

Even her ears were cute.

But the dark circles beneath her eyes were not. She needed this rest.

Leaning forward, he pressed a kiss to her forehead. “Sleep, Lisa.”

Many of you have absolutely thrilled me by expressing your eagerness to read the next book in the Aldebarian Alliance series and asking when it will release. I'm writing it now and will be spending my weekend with Eliana and Dagon. I'm already loving those two together. πŸ˜€ So if all goes according to plan, I'll release it later this year.

Stay safe!



  1. Mine can't come soon enough!!

  6. Can't wait for the next release.😍😍😍

  7. The Lasaran was absolutely amazing. I didn't want it to end so I read the "teaser" at the end. BIG mistake, now I'm obsessed with the next release date. 2020 would be WAY better than 2021. Thank you for being a great story teller and providing an escape during this crazy COVID time.

    1. Thank you, Cindi! I'm so glad you enjoyed both The Lasaran and the teaser for Book 2. 😊
