Blog Tour: Blade of Darkness by Dianne Duvall

I have an exciting post for you all today! As part of a blog tour hosted by Author's Taproom, I am hosting a post from none other than Dianne Duvall herself. Having not read the book yet, I am sorry to say that this post won't have a review from yours truly. But never fear! Every book that Dianne writes is fantastic. And that's the gospel truth.

Return to the “utterly addictive” (RT Book Reviews) world of New York Times bestselling author Dianne Duvall’s Immortal Guardians.

Dana Pembroke has been able to glimpse the future of those she touches for as long as she can remember. But she never saw Aidan coming. When the tall, dark Celt with the charming grin yet world-weary eyes walks through her door, the future she sees for him is one full of violence, danger, deception… and passion. Because amidst the terrifying battles that unfold in her visions, she also sees herself in Aidan’s arms and in his bed. Dana knows she should keep her distance, but the tender moments and laughter they share entice her even as she finds herself thrust into a world of vampires, immortals, and other preternatural beings.

Immortal Guardian Aidan O’Byrne has been hunting and slaying psychotic vampires for nearly three thousand years, so visions of bloody battles don’t trouble him. The battles Dana foresees, however, show Aidan’s brethren turning against him, so he can’t help but feel alarmed. While he spends as much time as he can with Dana, struggling to decipher her dire predictions, Aidan finds himself utterly smitten. Hope rises that he has finally found a woman who can banish the darkness and loneliness that plague him. But when vampires begin targeting Dana and a powerful enemy spawns chaos, will fate grant them time to find happiness together?

Dianne Duvall's Top 10 Favorite Immortal Guardians Quotes

Hello! Thank you for joining me. I’m very happy to be here at Lady with a Quill, celebrating the release of BLADE OF DARKNESS, the seventh book in my Immortal Guardians series. 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 Immortal Guardians Quotes:


“You stabbed me in the ass?”



“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?”



“I’m not antisocial. I just want to be left alone.”



“Is this going to get weird? Like kinky weird?”



“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.”



“All right. All right. Settle down. We’re all glad Sarah stabbed Bastien in the ass.”



“I’ll blush as soon as the desire to decapitate you has passed.”



“If you start licking my hands, I’m going to totally lose it.”



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



“Great. There goes our security deposit.”


I have many more favorite quotes, of course, and post one on my blog every Friday. There are actually a few more from BLADE OF DARKNESS I would’ve liked to include, but I consider them all spoilers. So the ones I’ve mentioned here linger at the top of the list. :-)

For fans of the series: Do you have a favorite Immortal Guardians quote?
