Broken Dawn Countdown & Favorite Quote Friday

Happy Friday! I hope you're all staying safe and well. It's been a very busy week for me. Broken Dawn releases next week, so I'm starting to get that familiar fluttery, excited feeling in my stomach. I can't wait for you to meet Nick and Kayla. And for fans of my new Aldebarian Alliance series, I can't wait for you to see Eliana before her big transfer. ๐Ÿ˜‰

Less than a week to go! Broken Dawn releases on Tuesday, so this week I launched another Countdown Giveaway on Facebook. I'll choose a winner tonight (Friday night), so there's still time if you'd like to enter to win an Amazon Gift Card. ๐Ÿ˜Š

Can I just say again how thrilled I am by readers' and reviewers' responses to The Lasaran? I'm very excited about this new series. And every day, I'm asked when The Segonian, Aldebarian Alliance Book 2 will release. So for those who haven't heard, I'm writing it now and am having a lot of fun with it. I don't have a date yet, but I plan to release it later this year. 

Meanwhile fantastic reviews continue to roll in for the first book, The Lasaran.

Romance Rehab gave The Lasaran a wonderful review. Here's another quote from it:

"I liked the heroine, Lisa, because she was smart and kind-hearted, but the real star of this series for me was Taelon. He was a cinnamon roll hero of the HIGHEST order.  He was never anything but sweet and considerate towards Lisa. He's pretty much the antidote to all the manwhore, bully, alphaholes you find in romance these days.  Badass in a fight and hot in bed, but a real gentleman everywhere else. I liked him A LOT."

You can read the full review HERE.

I Smell Sheep gave The Lasaran a great review, too. Here's another quote from it:

"Dianne Duvall is kicking off a promising new series with The Lasaran and I couldn’t have been more thrilled to read it, nor more excited for the next book in the series."

It's time once more for Favorite Quote Friday
For today's favorite quote, I thought I'd give you another sneak peek into the pages of Broken Dawn that includes some of the North Carolina Immortal Guardians. I'll preface this by mentioning again that Kayla is the heroin, Nick is the hero, and Eliana is Nick's hunting partner.


Eliana clapped her hands together. “So. What’s the plan? I think the men should go hunting as usual while Dana and I stay home and have a girls’ night in with Kayla.”

Aidan shrugged. “Works for me.”

Nick hesitated. Dana and Eliana could certainly keep Kayla safe, but . . .

He sent Eliana a squinty-eyed look full of suspicion. “You aren’t going to pump her for information about our relationship, are you?”

She assumed an exaggeratedly innocent expression. “Who me? Would I do that?”

“Hell yes.”

She grinned. “Then I guess that’s a great big maybe, baby.”

Aidan and Dana laughed.

Nick groaned.

Only a few days to go now. I can't wait to hear what you think of it!

Stay safe and have a wonderful weekend!

  5. So I'm not going to try to rush you but I have not been so into a book series that I completed it and anxiously awaited the next books in years. I will do my best to wait patiently, but I just wanted you to know I love this series and can't wait for you to complete the next step in the story.
