Blog Tour Stop: Favorite Shadows Strike Quotes

Thank you so much for joining me today!  I’m excited to be here at The Reading Cave, 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 glimpse of what you’ll find in Ethan and Heather’s story by offering you a few of my favorite quotes from it.

First Quote 

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.”

She winked.  And damned if it didn’t make him want to toss his phone, lock the door, and bend her over the sofa.

“Your eyes are glowing again.”

“I know, damn it.”

She laughed.

Second Quote

“Why don’t you sleep for a bit?  I signed the confidentiality agreement, so you don’t have to worry about me trying to sneak pictures of your fangs and calling all the news outlets while you rest.”

Smiling, he shook his head.  “And what will you do while I sleep?”

“Find a permanent marker and draw a mustache and bushy eyebrows on your face.”

He laughed.  “I really like you, Heather.”

Third Quote 

He nodded. “You can learn a lot about a person from the way he or she faces death.”

A groan escaped her.  “I don’t even want to know what you learned about me.”  She had shaken in her boots during every skirmish.

“Are you kidding?  I learned that you’re brave as hell.  A true warrior who—”

She snorted.  “I babbled like a maniac the night we met and tried to convince myself I was still asleep.”

“Hell, that’s better than screaming and running away or crapping your pants.”

Another burst of laughter escaped her.

Fourth Quote

At last she found a faint smile.  “Could you maybe not mention my dad while we’re both standing here naked?  I mean, I know I’m too tired to do any fun stuff, but . . . still.”

Laughing, he looped an arm around her and guided her into the shower.  “Yeah.  I didn’t think that one through.”

Fifth Quote

“I don’t want to be the kind of woman who freaks out if we happen to run into one of your old girlfriends. We’re both adults. You didn’t come to me a virgin. And I didn’t come to you a virgin.”

“Oh, but you did,” he said somberly. “You swore you’d been saving yourself for me. That you had never made love before. Never kissed a man before.” He squeezed her hand. “That you had never even held hands with a man before you met me.”

Grinning, she patted their clasped hands. “You just keep believing that, honey.”

Shadows Strike
(Immortal Guardians #6)
by Dianne Duvall
Paperback/eBook, 320 pages
Expected publication: August 25th 2015 by Zebra
ISBN 1420129821
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…
