For the first time, New York Timesbestselling author Dianne Duvall brings readers a novel—set in the "fast-paced" (Publishers Weekly) and "totally addictive" (RT Book Reviews) world of the Immortal Guardians—that revolves around a vampire... one who has become a friend and trusted ally of the powerful warriors.

Every mortal who works at network headquarters knows that vampires reside below them. They were the first to surrender to the powerful Immortal Guardians who hunt them. And they did so, hoping they can be saved, that the doctors and scientists the Immortal Guardians employ can halt the progressive brain damage that robs all vampires of their sanity. Though curious, Emma never thought she would meet any of the vampires who remain under heavy guard several stories beneath her office. Then mercenaries strike, bombarding the building with heavy artillery. The vampires are freed to join the fray... and Cliff saves her life.

From that moment on, she can't stop thinking about him regardless of the restrictions placed on interactions with vampires.When Emma discovers a way to speak to Cliff at network headquarters, she becomes even more fascinated by him. He's smart, charming, and honorable to his core despite the darkness that lies ahead. And he seems to crave her company as much as she does his. Aware of the eyes that watch them, they keep their encounters innocent, limiting them to those of mere acquaintances. Nevertheless, their attraction grows and she soon falls in love with him even as the madness begins to claim him.

Cliff realizes his future is dark. As one vampire friend after another succumbs to insanity, hope that network doctors will be able to find a cure in time to keep him from meeting the same fate begins to dwindle, leaving him little to look forward to... until he meets Emma. Just speaking to her brings him a happiness and contentment he hasn't experienced since before his transformation. And when they finally find a way to be alone together, everything changes. Emma burrows her way right into his heart and quiets the voices. She sparks dreams of a future withher that strengthen his determination to beat back the madness. But as time passes, the voices grow louder and insanity begins to chip away at him until he fears it will eradicate every part of him she fell in love with.

Will the two of them find a way to defy the odds and find their happily-ever-after? Or will Cliff's descent consume him?

I have more exciting news: The Segonian, narrated by Kirsten Potter, was given the AudioFile Earphones Award for Exceptional Audio by AudioFile Magazine. Woohoo!!

"Not only does Poter give Eliana a ringing never-surrender voice that embodies her pluck in he face of an alien attack, she also depicts the entire male crew of the spaceship that rescues Eliana from deep space. Listeners will tear up as Eliana faces an oxygen shortage and laugh out loud as she teaches Commander Dagon and the other Segonians swear words from Earth."

Friday, February 26, 2021

Hello, all! I hope your week was a good one.

On the home front, the past couple of weeks have been trying ones. What the meteorologists called a "generational" or "historic" weather event swept through here, bringing snow and ice. The first day wasn't bad. We actually spent much of it playing in the snow. (We only get snow about every 10-15 years.) Then temps dipped down into the single digits and didn't climb above freezing for a few days, which is very rare here. The power went out and the water shut off. Temps inside the house dropped to 50ΒΊF.

It took two or three days to get power back on. The water came back on, too. Unfortunately, as soon as temps rose above freezing we discovered that—despite our careful preparations—a pipe had burst outside and was gushing. So we had to have the water shut off. So many pipes burst all over the city that it took us two days to get a plumber on the phone. They're so overwhelmed—working 16-hour days—that we were placed on a waiting list. So we've been without running water for a week and a half now. BUT we actually just found a plumber today who put us on his repair schedule for next week. Huzzah!

I know there are many others who are in the same boat. I hope you're faring well and didn't suffer too much damage. And thank you, everyone, for your well wishes and for making me smile. You're the best!

I hit a new milestone this week. The Segonian received its 900th rating/review on Amazon. That's the first time one of my books has gotten that many.

Also, Broken Dawn, the latest stand-alone novel in my Immortal Guardians series, is closing in on the 800 ratings/reviews mark. Woohoo!! If you've only read my Aldebarian Alliance books and would like to see what Eliana's life was like before she embarked upon her space adventure, you'll get a big glimpse in this one.

It's time once more for Favorite Quote Friday! Today I thought I would share another moment of levity from The Segonian. This is a snippet of a scene in which Eliana (the heroine), Dagon (the hero), and his crew are discussing ways to defeat their mutual enemy, the Gathendiens:

____________________________

 

Maarev winked. "I say we let them dock, then hurl Eliana at them and let her kill them all while the rest of us sit back, relax, and eat what's left of the jarumi nuggets."

 

Eliana laughed. "No way, buddy. Those jarumi nuggets are mine."

 

The big warrior chuckled. "I notice you didn't object to the killing part."

 

"Because jarumi nuggets mean more to me than Gathendiens."

 

Smiling, Dagon curled an arm around her and turned toward the door. "Let's go see if we can devise a plan that won't deprive Eliana of her favorite treat."

____________________________

 

I'm so glad readers are enjoying Eliana and Dagon's book. 😊


I also wanted to mention that if my Favorite Quote Friday posts start to come more slowly, it's because I'm working furiously on my next manuscript. The whole power outage and no running water thing put me more than a week behind, so I'm going to try to work in more writing time.


For those who haven't heard, it's an Immortal Guardians book. πŸ˜‰

 

Take care and happy reading!

 

Dianne

Totally Addicted to Reading gave The Segonian a fantastic review.


Here's another quote from it:

____________________________

Flora's Musings gave it a wonderful review, too. 


Here's another quote from it:

"A Stellar Adventure In This Sci-fi Romance Series. 
I’m already a big fan of Dianne Duvall’s books but sci-fi is not my usual reading genre. However, I love Dianne’s writing style, the language she uses and the way she paces her plots.
I was drawn into this story and remained hooked throughout.
"

It's time once more for Favorite Quote Friday! Today I thought I would share a moment of levity in an action-packed scene from The Segonian:
____________________________

She raced for the closed door that led to the rest of the ship, trusting Dagon and the guys to take out whoever was left.

 

“Grenade, Eliana,” Dagon warned, his voice coming over the comm seconds before an e-grenade sailed past her shoulder.

 

It detonated as it hit the door.

 

Flames and sparks and hot air rushed toward her, but didn’t slow her at all as the grenade he’d lobbed blasted a substantial hole in the door.

 

“Thanks, babe,” she called as she dove through it.

 

A throat cleared. “Did she just call our commander babe?”

 

“Shut up,” Dagon retorted.

 

She laughed. “Would you like me to call him sugarboo instead?”


Srul, yes,” Maarev responded as snickers carried over the comm.

Thank you for making my first ten years as a published author so amazing. Medieval Romance, Time-Travel Romance, Paranormal Romance, and Sci-Fi Romance... I'm having so much fun!


Take care and happy reading!

More reviews have been rolling in for The Segonian. And I could not be more pleased. I'm so glad you're enjoying Eliana and Dagon's story! I love that so many readers who admit they don't usually like sci-fi or alien romances are enjoying it, too. Here are just a few of the fantastic reviews I've seen for The Segonian:

I'm a Voracious Reader gave it a fantastic review.


Here's another quote from it:

"I truly feel as if I sound like a broken record when I say how much I love Dianne Duvall’s Immortal Guardian world. And now she has added the Aldebarian Alliance series to it. All I can say is, Hot damn! Talk about mashing genres! Paranormal, romance, and sci-fi, Oh MY! Add humor, action, and some steamy nomminess and you get a dish that is more delicious than anything you could possibly ask for or want."
____________________________

And Jeri's Book Attic gave it a wonderful review, too. 


Here's another quote from it:

"[Dianne Duvall] can literally write about anything. She created the World around the Immortal Guardians, then the two historical romances about the Gifted Ones. FANTASTIC! I really love historical romances, so these two were perfect in every way. And now the SiFi-Romances. I never imagined that I would read a story that takes place on a spaceship. Only Dianne Duvall can do that. And what a story that was..."

It's time once more for Favorite Quote Friday! Today I thought I would share another snippet that features Eliana and Dagon. I'll preface it by mentioning that Adaos is the Chief Medical Officer on the Segonian battleship Ranasura:
____________________________

“I told Adaos he could study me and I would share everything I know about the virus and my species with him if he would share something with me,” Eliana admitted.


Dagon crossed his arms over his chest. “And what might that be?”

 

Pink crept up her neck and filled her cheeks as she shuffled her feet, looking sheepish as srul, and muttered something he couldn’t hear.

 

“What?”

 

Emitting a growl of her own, she spoke louder. “Information on Segonian courtship rituals and the societal do's and don'ts that surround them." She peeked up at him through long dark lashes as though trying to gauge his reaction.

 

Everything within him went still. “Segonian courtship rituals?” he repeated softly. “Why would you wish to know more about that?”

 

She sighed. “Because I couldn’t find anything about it in your informational databases, and I’ve been wanting to do this for a long time.” Reaching up, she rested her small hands on his stubbled cheeks, then rose onto her toes and drew him down for a kiss.

 

His heart stuttered to a halt, then began to slam against his ribs. The first gentle brush of her lips hit him like an electrical current. His breath caught. Hers did, too. She drew back a fraction to stare up at him with wide eyes that acquired an amber glow.

 

Then Dagon slid his arms around her and locked her against him. Dipping his head, he claimed her lips with greater urgency, letting her feel the heat that had been flaying him inside ever since she had walked onto his bridge, fully recovered from her wounds, and drawn him into a hug. 
____________________________

I'm so incredibly thrilled that my voyage into space is making so many readers and audiobooklovers laugh and cheer for these two. They were such a fun couple to write. 


If you haven't read or listened to it yet, I hope you'll enjoy Eliana and Dagon's story!


Take care and happy reading!

I admit I've been particularly thrilled by those of you who said you normally don't like sci-fi or alien romances but really enjoyed this one. Here are just a few of the fantastic reviews I've seen for The Segonian:

____________________________

Caffeinated Reviewer gave it a fantastic review, too
Here's another quote from it:

"The Segonian by Dianne Duvall was one of my most anticipated audiobooks of 2021, and it delivered! Prepare for wicked banter, geeky discoveries, danger, and a sizzling romance as only Duvall can deliver."
____________________________

And NerdyNovelReviews gave the audiobook a wonderful review. 

Here's another quote from it:

"Dianne Duvall has done it once again keeping me on the edge of my seat! .... Kirsten Potter yet again brings the author's characters to life by narrating in such a fashion that encapsulates the listener and makes them feel like they are right there in the thick of the storyline with these characters. Her tone is able to go from female to male easily, many different accents such as English, British, Egyptian, and more, and brings out the emotion the author is hoping to convey to her readers."

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?

It's time once more for Favorite Quote Friday! Today I thought I would share another snippet that features Eliana and Dagon:
____________________________

Curiosity bombarded him. “How did you know he wasn’t alone?”

 

“Who?”

 

“Maarev. How did you know he wasn’t alone in the training room?”

 

She winked up at him. “I’ll tell you after I spar with some of your men. I love it when opponents underestimate me.”

 

He smiled. “I imagine many underestimate you. Despite the confidence with which you comport yourself, you appear very fragile.”
