In Still Darkness by Dianne Duvall

Immortal Richart d'Alençon can't forget the woman who rewarded him with a sensuous kiss after he saved her from a trio of vampires. While Richart knows that loving a human can only bring trouble, the taste of forbidden lust is too great to resist. . .

High Stakes by Hannah Jayne

When vampire fashionista Nina LaShay's design contest rival is found dead, she's the prime suspect. Sexy photographer Pike is number two. He's the kind of man who makes Nina salivate. But will she have to reveal herself to have him--and to save them both? Or does Pike have a secret of his own?

15 Things You’ll “Overhear” in My Immortal Guardians Series

Thank you, Lisa, for letting me visit A Life Bound by Books again!  I’m so excited to be here today, celebrating the release of PREDATORY, an anthology that contains my Immortal Guardians novella “In Still Darkness”, along with stories by Alexandra Ivy, Nina Bangs, and Hannah Jayne!

“In Still Darkness” features Richart d’Alençon, a two-hundred-and-thirty-year-old immortal warrior who spends his nights hunting and destroying psychotic vampires.  Though his brother and sister are also immortal, Richart nevertheless considers it a lonely existence . . . until he rescues charming single mother Jenna McBride and is rewarded with a scorching kiss.  Unable to resist her lure (or forget that kiss), he daringly attempts what few other immortals have tried:  He attempts to carry on a traditional courtship while keeping his vampire hunting profession, as well as his immortality, a secret.  As you might’ve guessed, it doesn’t go very smoothly.  :-)

If you’re new to my Immortal Guardians series, I thought I’d give you a glimpse of the characters through some favorite quotes.  For those who are already familiar with the series, I included some sneak peeks into “In Still Darkness” and DARKNESS RISES (October 1, 2013):

            1.  “You stabbed me in the ass?” ~ Bastien, DARKNESS DAWNS, Book 1.

            2.  “I’m not antisocial.  I just want to be left alone.” ~ Roland, DARKNESS DAWNS, Book 1.

            3.  “What kind of crack pots have you been dating?” ~ Sarah, DARKNESS DAWNS, Book 1.

            4. “Um . . . is that cat bald?” ~ Ami, NIGHT REIGNS, Book 2.

            5.  “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, Book 2.

            6.  “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, Book 2.

            7.  “All right.  All right.  Settle down.  We're all glad Sarah stabbed Bastien in the ass.” ~ Seth, PHANTOM SHADOWS, Book 3.

            8.  "If you tell me you have two gifts and one of them is X-ray vision, I'm going to have to hurt you." ~ Melanie, PHANTOM SHADOWS, Book 3.

            9.  “Is this going to get weird?  Like kinky weird?” ~ John, PREDATORY, “In Still Darkness”.

            10.  “Wow, you guys really know how to make a girl feel self-conscious.” ~ Jenna, PREDATORY, “In Still Darkness”.

            11.  “I am so smitten with you.” ~ Richart, PREDATORY, “In Still Darkness”.

            12.  “Dude, vampires threaten to feed me my own entrails all the time.  You’re going to have to come up with something better than that.” ~ Sheldon, PREDATORY, “In Still Darkness”.

            13.  “Are you off your nut?” ~ David, DARKNESS RISES, Book 4 (October 1, 2013).

            14.  “Could I just say holy crap again?” ~ Krysta, DARKNESS RISES, Book 4 (October 1, 2013).

            15.  “Great.  There goes our security deposit.” ~ Sean, DARKNESS RISES, Book 4 (October 1, 2013).

Intrigued?  I hope so.  Thanks so much for joining me!
