New York Times bestselling author Dianne Duvall brings readers the second stand-alone novel in a thrilling new sci-fi romance series full of action, humor, and happily-ever-afters.

Eliana's life has never been what one might term ordinary. At least, it hasn't been for a very long time. As a powerful Immortal Guardian, she spends her nights hunting and slaying psychotic vampires that most of humanity doesn't even realize exist. Then an opportunity arises that instantly makes her extraordinary existence seem downright boring. The leader of the Immortal Guardians asks her to guard a group of mortals who are embarking upon a voyage across the galaxy to the planet Lasara. How could she possibly say no?

In no time at all, Eliana is hurtling through space on board a Lasaran battleship and getting to know not one but two alien races. It's the most exciting adventure of her long life... until the ship is unexpectedly attacked. Amid the chaos and destruction that follow, she valiantly helps everyone she can before an explosion renders her unconscious. When Eliana awakens, she finds herself alone, floating in space, clad only in a spacesuit, with no ship in sight. Alone--that is--except for the warm, deep voice that carries over the comm in her helmet.

Commander Dagon and the crew of the Segonian battleship Ranasura respond to a distress call from their Lasaran allies and join a massive Alliance-wide search-and-rescue mission. He quickly achieves communication with a lone Earthling female and races toward her. Every time they speak, his fascination with her grows and he becomes more desperate to reach her before her oxygen supply runs out. Her strength, bravery, and humor entice him, even more so when she defies all odds and they meet in person.

As he and Eliana embark upon a quest to find her missing friends, a bond swiftly grows between them that deepens with every laugh and smile and tender touch they share. But they are not the only ones searching for Earthling survivors. When Eliana herself becomes the hunted and their enemies begin to close in, can the two of them fight their way to victory?

To celebrate the big release, I thought I'd share another peek into the pages of The Segonian that features Eliana and Dagon:

“I meant what I said in there. I won’t let him hurt you or the others.”


Eliana said it with such endearing earnestness that he wanted to draw her into a hug.


Instead, he arched a brow. “Because you care about us?”


A flush crept into her cheeks as she smiled. “Yes, I care about you. How could I not? You’re all so damn appealing.” She glanced at the closed door, then sent him a wink as she whispered, “But you’re my favorite.”


Leaning down until his lips nearly touched her ear, he whispered back, “You’re my favorite, too.” He pressed his lips to the soft skin of her neck. “And I plan to prove it again tonight.” When he straightened, she stared up at him with brown eyes that acquired an amber glow. His pulse leaped when she slid her tongue across her lower lip as though she could already taste his kiss.


He shook his head. “So damn appealing.”


“Awwww.” Smiling, she patted his chest. “You used an Earth curse word to describe me. That’s so sweet.”


He laughed. “Appealing and odd,” he qualified.

She wrinkled her nose. "Yeah. I was hoping it would take you longer to figure that last part out."

  1. I'm happy that she is using people from her Immortal Guardians series to go more universal and sci-fi... I don't know of any other authors that can do this with a series, it's great!

    Plot was great, characters are great, writing style is great... Seriously if you are someone who hasn't read her books, you need to jump on that A.S.A.P.

    There are a few guys that I am waiting to see paired up... I have about 5 guys that I'm waiting on but I'm really hoping for either David or Imhotep next... Hopefully we get to see more diversity as far as the pairings go... So far she has been playing it kind of safe... Nothing wrong with that, but I would like to at least see a mixed woman... Whether she's Asian, Puerto Rican, Mexican, Indigenous, or just Black and White... We've have such a diversity when it comes to the men, that the only thing that is different with the women that they get with is their hair and eye color...

    Anyway, I would recommend this book... I would actually recommend ALL of her books... I love her writing, I love the world building that she has done... Very talented author... Can't wait for the next one...
