Blade of Darkness Blog Tour with Dianne Duvall



Top 5 Reasons Immortal Guardians make the Best Book Boyfriends

Hello!  Thank you for joining me.  I’m here today to celebrate 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, I thought I would mention the Top 5 Reasons Immortal Guardians Make the Best Book Boyfriends.



They love strong women.

Ethan sent Heather a grin. “I keep trying to tell you, honey, immortal males aren’t stupid. We LOVE strong women.”

Aidan smiled at Dana. “We really do.” And the affection that accompanied his words as he stared down at her made warmth unfurl inside her.

 —Blade of Darkness


“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


“Beautiful, brave and possessed of violent tendencies.  I like her.”

—Marcus, Darkness Dawns



They like to laugh and tease.

“You think I’m a geek now, don’t you?” Aidan jested.

She relaxed a little more. “No.”

“First I say caboose. Now, this.”

She smiled. “Actually, I thought your caboose was cute.” Her eyes widened. “THE caboose,” she corrected hastily. “I thought THE caboose was cute. You’re SAYING it, I mean.”

He winked. “I prefer the first one.”

She laughed. “I bet you do.”

Blade of Darkness



They’re fiercely protective of those they love.

“I’m okay,” Aidan whispered. “We both are. I’ll never let anyone harm you, Dana. I vow it. I’d give my life to protect you.”

Blade of Darkness


“No one will harm you, Heather,” Ethan vowed.  “They would have to go through me first.”

She smiled.


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.”

Shadows Strike



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.

Night Unbound



You just never know what they’re going to say.

“You look a bit like you want to hit me over the head with the bread basket.”

—Aidan, Shadows Strike


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

—Seth, Phantom Shadows


“For some reason, admitting that makes me feel like a naughty school boy caught peeking up his teacher’s skirt.”

—Bastien, 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


“I SUCK at dating.”

—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

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?
