Top 5 Reasons Immortal Guardians make the Best Book Boyfriends
Thank you so much for joining me today! I’m very excited to be here at Books and Things, celebrating the release of SHADOWS STRIKE, the sixth book in my Immortal Guardians series. (If you’re new to the series, don’t worry. The books can be read as stand alones. You’ll just be more familiar with the secondary characters if you read them in order.) Today I thought I would give you a little insight into my powerful Immortal Guardians by naming five reasons they make the best book boyfriends.
1. They love strong women.
“Beautiful, brave and possessed of violent tendencies. I like her.”
Marcus, Darkness Dawns
“Are you sure I can't talk you into leaving this old sod and running away with me? I do so love strong women. ”
Étienne, Night Reigns
“You’re a strong, beautiful woman who knows her way around a blade. I find that” — he drew in a deep breath as his eyes traveled over her with a heat that scorched her — “incredibly appealing.”
Étienne, Darkness Rises
“You’re beautiful, you’re smart, you think quickly in a crisis, and you kick ass. Do you have any idea what a desirous combination that is?”
—Ethan, Shadows Strike
2. They like to laugh and tease.
Adira toddled toward Seth, touching each man’s knee on the way.
Seth bent and scooped her into his arms, kissing her cheek, then blowing raspberries in her chubby neck rolls. Giggles filled the air as she squirmed against him, leaning back and clutching him tighter all at the same time.
How he loved this baby girl.
“I don’t know about you,” Chaahk said, “but I’m feeling a little rebuffed.”
“Why,” Seth asked with a laugh, “because I didn’t blow raspberries in your neck?”
Aidan and Imhotep laughed.
Shaking his head, Chaahk motioned to Adira. “Why doesn’t she smile at us like that?”
Seth shrugged. “I’m prettier.”
3. They’re fiercely protective of those they love.
“No one will harm you, Heather,” he vowed. “They would have to go through me first.”
She gave him a titillating once-over. “You’re hot when you’re all tough and protective.”
He grinned. “Stop tempting me. Chris is on his way, so I need to keep my head.”
—Ethan and Heather, Shadows Strike
4. They kick ass.
Lisette gasped as Zach tore through the vampires like a tornado.
Holy sh**, he’s fast! Richart thought and took a step forward, his fascinated gaze glued to the tempest below.
It didn’t take long.
Zach stilled in the center of the pack, knees bent, blades dripping, face marbled with blood. Seven vampires sank lifelessly to the ground, their bodies spread around him like the petals of a flower, as the virus went to work and they began to shrivel up like mummies.
5. You just never know what they’re going to say.
"All right. All right. Settle down. We're all glad Sarah stabbed Bastien in the ass."
Seth, Phantom Shadows
“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
“For some reason, admitting that makes me feel like a naughty school boy caught peeking up his teacher’s skirt.”
Bastien, Phantom Shadows
“I thought I felt a disturbance in the force.”
—Aidan, Shadows Strike
“I did not need to see that. I mean I really did not need to see that. Jenna, honey, grab one of my daggers and poke out both my eyes.”
—Richart, Night Unbound
Ah can you see why I love this series so much? Love those quotes. :D

About the Book:
(Immortal Guardians #6)
by Dianne Duvall
Paperback/eBook, 320 pages
Expected publication: August 25th 2015 by Zebra
The Immortal Guardians protect the innocent in secret. Sometimes the secret gets out...
U.S. law enforcement agent Heather Lane can read minds. But not the future. The dream of battle and blood that recurs every night must be a fluke, some obscure terror from her own mind. What its significance might be, she can’t guess: an attack from seven psychotic vampires at once, only separated from nightmare by an eighth very different immortal. A handsome, brave man fighting at her side, a man she misses when she wakes.
Then the dream comes true. Heather is flung into a war between predators and protectors of humanity, the man from her dreams beside her again. Except now that she’s awake, she isn’t sure she can trust Ethan, or the shadow organization he represents. The U.S. military doesn’t trust either of them. But against an onslaught of evil like the one that’s coming, it will take everything they have just to survive...
