Author Guest Post and Giveaway: Dianne Duvall's Immortal Guardian Series


Favorite Quotes from the Immortal Guardians Series 

Hello! Thanks so much for joining me. I’m happy to be here today, celebrating the release of AWAKEN THE DARKNESS. If you like powerful preternatural heroes, strong heroines, action scenes that will keep you flipping pages well past your bedtime, and romance that is alternately steamy and sweet and laced with humor, then I think you’ll enjoy this book. 

To whet your appetite for Aidan and Dana’s story and to give you a glimpse of what you’ll find in my Immortal Guardians series if you’re new to it (don’t worry—each book can be read as a stand-alone, you’ll just know more about the secondary characters if you read them in order), I thought I would list my Top 10 Favorite Quotes from the Immortal Guardians Series: 

10 
“You stabbed me in the ass?” 
—Bastien, DARKNESS DAWNS 

9 
“What did you think I would do? Ask her if I could braid her hair after we gave each other facials and painted our toenails?” 
—Marcus, NIGHT REIGNS 

8 
“Is this going to get weird? Like kinky weird?” 
—John, IN STILL DARKNESS 

7 
“I did NOT need to see that. I mean I REALLY did not need to see that. Jenny, honey, grab one of my daggers and poke out both my eyes.” 
—Richart, NIGHT UNBOUND 

6 
“I’m not antisocial. I just want to be left alone.” 
—Roland, DARKNESS DAWNS 

5 
“All right. All right. Settle down. We’re all glad Sarah stabbed Bastien in the ass.” 
—Seth, PHANTOM SHADOWS 

Ooh. That’s so cool. Even in your thoughts, your voice deepens and gets all growly when you’re turned on. Before he could respond, she made a sound of impatience. Damn it. Now I’m turned on. 
—Susan, AWAKEN THE DARKNESS 

“I’ll blush as soon as the desire to decapitate you has passed.” 
—Lisette, NIGHT UNBOUND 

“Well . . . if you didn’t want me to tranq anyone, you shouldn’t have given me the damned gun.” 
—Dana, BLADE OF DARKNESS 

1 
“Great. There goes our security deposit.” 
—Sean, DARKNESS RISES 


I have many other favorites, of course, but these are at the top of the list. :-) 
For fans of the series: Do you have a favorite Immortal Guardians quote that isn’t mentioned here? 

For readers who are new to the series: Which of these did you like the best?





Awaken the Darkness 
(Immortal Guardians #8)
by Dianne Duvall 
Kindle Edition, 414 pages
Publication: July 10th 2018 by Dianne Duvall

Return to the "utterly addictive" (RT Book Reviews), "fast-paced and humorous" (Publishers Weekly) world of New York Times bestselling author Dianne Duvall's Immortal Guardians.  

He awakens encapsulated in dirt with no knowledge of how he came to be there. Riddled with injuries, he can remember neither his past nor who he is. Nor can he remember what he is. But surely no mortal man could survive being buried deep beneath the earth. All he knows with certainty is that the soothing voice and presence of the woman moving around above enables him to endure the agony of his wounds. And he will do whatever it takes to be with her.

When Susan first sees the old two-story house for sale, such warmth and longing fill her that—against all reason—she makes an offer. It will take years of hard work and money she frankly doesn’t have to fix up the place. So she can’t explain why she bought it. She also can’t explain what compels her to spend hours one night, digging in the basement until she unearths a man. A man who still lives and breathes despite having been buried alive. A man whose intense brown eyes glow amber with pain, declaring him far more than ordinary. Susan knows she should keep her distance. He has no memory and possesses gifts that would make most fear him. But as the two work together to unravel the mystery of his past, she finds herself drawn in by his teasing nature and tender touch. So much so that she loses her heart to him even as they find themselves hunted by unknown enemies who are ruthless in their quest to capture them.
