Blade Of Darkness

(Immortal Guardians, #7)

by Dianne Duvall

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?

 

“Fans of paranormal romance who haven’t discovered this series yet are really missing out on something extraordinary.”

Two Lives Torn by tragedy.

Eight-year-old Becca and twelve-year-old Hunter cling to each other and life after surviving a plane crash which stole their families.

Two Souls Seeking Love.

Each year, from the time she was old enough to travel on her own, Becca met up with Hunter on the island that altered their lives forever.

Until he stopped showing.

Her constant. Her link to the past. Gone in the blink of an eye.

Two Lives Bound by Secret.

Suffering more heartbreak, Hunter returns to the one place he’s always sought comfort, the island where he and Becca met. It was the place that stole from him, and in the same instance gave to him. He hasn’t been back or spoken to Becca in four years.

Though he’s sure she must hate him for disappearing, Hunter discovers the girl gone, now a woman in her place. Hunter is determined to prove to Becca he isn’t the same twelve-year-old boy of yesteryear.

But someone isn’t happy about their reunion…

Strange things begin happening. Letters start showing up in their hotel rooms and at home with cryptic messages.

Two Broken Hearts Heal as One.

With the mystery unsolved, Hunter convinces Becca to spend the remainder of the summer back home with him, both for safety and to give them a chance to discover the adults they’ve now become.

Sept Ends NEW

SEPTEMBER ENDS

By

Hunter S. Jones

&

An Anonymous English Poet

Overweight and dull. That’s how I felt.

My grandfather and brother died. I hid inside a black cave deep in my soul, numbed for a decade on meds, booze, and bad love, married to my glorious career.

My name is Liz Snow, from Atlanta, Georgia, and this is my story.

One hot summer I fell hopelessly in love with successful attorney, Peter William Hendrix III, from Chattanooga, Tennessee. We bonded because of Shelley and Keats. Pete introduced me to the works of modern English poet, Jack O. Savage, It was like The Poet was drawing us together through his blogs and poems, like he had a message for my life and my love with Pete Hendrix.

I lived it in my heart and soul.

It all went tragically wrong once I learned Pete’s secret.

As September ends I jet to London, England with an unstable mind and a broken heart. Pete Hendrix betrayed me big time. There was no time for revenge. My life was a kaleidoscope of stabbing shards of pain.

London ignored me. Maybe I didn’t exist. I was lost and lonely in a flat in Kensington.

I hear that Jack O. Savage will make a rare public appearance. I wrangle an invitation to the art gallery where he is reading. I was curious. Somehow, he was the cause of my trouble.

The rock-star-with-words was even more damaged than I.

Jack O.Savage, The Poet became my friend.

Then, an unexpected kiss at a county fair on a perfect English summer’s day changed everything forever. Jack the man became my lover.

Magic.

My elusive dream of a lifelong love began.

If Pete was what I’d always wanted, Jack was what I always needed.

The mystery unraveled as the kaleidoscope of my broken life evolved and I found myself living a rainbow of perfect bliss.

Sometimes when you believe it’s the end, it’s only the beginning.


September Ends is a contemporary romance with erotic and supernatural elements bound together by poetry. It reveals the intricate web of passion and desire which entangles Liz Snow, Pete Hendrix and Jack O. Savage. The story is told through Liz Snow’s diary, Jack O. Savage’s poetry, and from letters sent across the Atlantic. Traveling throughout the lushness of a summertime in Tennessee and Georgia, September Ends journeys into the elegance of London’s West End and is finally settled in the countryside of Cornwall, England, a decade later.

September Ends is a story of sin, redemption and salvation through love because love happens when we least expect it.

Excerpt

Intro – 3 Main Characters

LIZ SNOW

I am Liz Snow, Elizabeth October Snow, from Atlanta, Georgia, USA. Actually I’m from a small town in north Georgia called LaFayette. My grandfather died suddenly when I was young, then I saw my only brother die in a useless traffic accident. So, you see, I’m not your typical girl. Years of anti-depressants, alcohol and bad relationships have damaged me emotionally. I hide myself in my career as a software executive. I never really knew what love was until meeting Peter William Hendrix III of Chattanooga, Tennessee. Or at least that’s what I thought until Pete’s betrayal.

PETE HENDRIX

I’m successful, some say handsome, attorney Pete Hendrix of the firm Hendrix, Hendrix & Smith in Chattanooga, Tennessee, USA. I attended undergrad at Vanderbilt University, graduated law school with honors and returned to Chattanooga to run the family law firm. I live the life my mother always wanted for me. As often as possible, go to my cabin on Walden Ridge. There, I swim in the clear, cool water from the cave, read and spend time in solitude looking onto the scenic Sequatchie Valley, the sacred hunting grounds of the Cherokee Nation before the Trail of Tears. My life is structured and secure. But, I never expected to meet a girl like Liz Snow. I loved Liz with my heart and soul. Then, she discovered my secret.

WIKI ENTRY: JACK O SAVAGE

English poet, novelist, and founder member of The Renaissance Bards trio of spoken word artists, Jack O Savage leapt to prominence on being expelled from Jesus College, Oxford for allegedly plotting an arson attack on the college in which he supposedly planned to ‘raise English successist complacency to its foundations’, though no charges were ever brought against him. The Sun tabloid newspaper ran a story proclaiming POSH POET GETS CHOP referring to Savage’s ‘chopper protest’ in which he was arrested for ‘leaping atop a 17th century oak refectory table and lewdly flaunting his generous masculinity’ at a formal disciplinary hearing, a gesture which he later repeated in public and which subsequently went viral on YouTube, receiving over 100 million hits in under two hours.

73093-abouttheauthor

Ms Jones Official 6-14Writer. Exile on Peachtree Street.

I make things up and write them down.

The art form I create when writing is much more interesting than anything you will ever know or learn about me. However, since you ask, I have lived in Tennessee and Georgia my entire life, except for one “lost summer” spent in Los Angeles. My first published stories were for a local underground rock publication in Nashville. Since then, I have published articles on music, fashion, art, travel and history.

October 2013 saw the launch of a novel collaboration, SEPTEMBER ENDS, contemporary fiction laced with romance, erotic and supernatural elements, bound by poetry. SEPTEMBER ENDS has been labeled an “Indie Sensation” due the critical reception and international recognition the novel has received.  It has just been nominated for indie 2013 Book of the Year AND Best Romance by the peer recommended eFestival of Words. The book has been downloaded in every Amazon domain on the planet. It has achieved #1 status on Amazon for World Literature, #1 in British Poetry, #1 in Artistic Erotica and #1 in Contemporary Poetry.

The first installment of The Fortune Series, FORTUNE CALLING, released in January 2014, is the story of Dallas Fortune, a musician from Nashville who has been dealt a bad hand by fate, but finds her way. It has been #1 on Amazon in Contemporary Fiction featuring Performing Arts and #1 in Contemporary Short Stories. Look for it’s audio release soon.

SEPTEMBER AGAIN, released on Amazon on April 15, 2014 achieved Best Seller ranking, as did the poetry of SEPTEMBER VERSES, released May 2014. SEPTEMBER AGAIN is a dramatic contemporary coming of age story, no matter what your age is. SEPTEMBER VERSES is the poetry of the SEPTEMBER STORIES with never before seen Editor’s Cuts. The next in the series, SEPTEMBER FIRST, will be released later in Septemeber 2014.

Look for the first RA Jones Anthology to be released July 2014. Confessions of a Sex Addict is four sultry erotic stories set in contemporary New Orleans. The second Ra Jones Anthology is scheduled in November 2014. Eight erotic writers with eight stories, all based on one word, which is the title. More soon…

Blurb:

Dianne Duvall’s Immortal Guardians protect humanity from unspeakable horrors–but their hearts are as fragile as any mortal’s. . .

 

For centuries, Lisette d’Alençon has been a warrior against the dark. She fights alongside her brothers and comrades. But when the dreams start coming, she can’t bear to confess them to the Immortal Guardians’ command. Dreams of a dark-haired man with soft eyes and brutal wounds, a man her heart aches for–and a man she knows has been declared a traitor.

 

Zach is an exile, a loner. He won’t defend himself against false accusations or grovel to those who should have faith in him. But he’ll damn sure defend the woman who kept him sane against a plague of super-vamps that seems to have appeared from nowhere. The Guardians will blame him, and that will make Lisette suspect, too. With life, death and eternity on the line, who can they really trust?

Blurb:

Years after fleeing small-town Springvale, Illinois, Deanna Chase has picked up the pieces of her shattered heart and built a new life for herself as a child advocacy lawyer. Her food addiction is quasi under control, her secrets are buried, and she has even made a tenuous peace with her plus-size body. Until…

 

Micah Peters—the very sexy and now famous man she fled— walks through her office door and sends Dee reeling. His demand that she help a young boy caught in a custody battle will reunite her with the past she left behind.

 

Torn between duty and self-preservation, Dee isn’t easy to convince. But when obligation wins, the former lovers get more than they bargained for—a searing passion that burns hotter than ever and startling revelations about what really happened the fateful night she left.

 

Will the truth set Dee free to love again? Or will past hurts and lingering insecurities destine her to walk away from her heart again, this time for good?

 

FAT GIRL is the first book in this provocative two-part series about love and self-acceptance.

What people are saying about FAT GIRL:

5 stars – A brilliant romance novel with a difference by By Olivia P:

Carron portrays Dee’s insecurities absolutely faultlessly, from the little tugs she habitually gives to her clothing when nervous, to the full-fledged horrified panic at the thought of being seen naked in the daylight. When it comes to romance novels, we’re so used to the women being picture perfect, and any perceived imperfections being so minor as to be of little note, but here we have a real ‘everywoman’ figure. And it’s about damn time!

Dee’s uniqueness within the genre aside, the plot in Fat Girl is multi-layered and compelling, and driven forward with a skilled hand. In some respects it stands alone; Carron thankfully avoids the current tendency towards an infuriating, cliffhanger ending, although as it’s book one of two there’s plenty left to still be revealed, and I’m really looking forward to the next one.

A brilliantly written, steamy, sexy, thought-provokingly wonderful novel.

Goodreads Reader – 5 stars –Pamela:

Wonderful! I absolutely loved this novel. Loved all of the characters. Loved the back and forth between the present and the past and the 1st person point of view that knocked back and forth between the main male and female characters. Yes, there is suppose to be another book after this one as a continuation of the story line, but the ending is not a panic inducing cliff hanger. That’s all I will say about that.

73093-abouttheauthor

An American living in Canada. Chocolate snob. Recovering yo-yo dieter. Devoted mother and wife, blessed with a wacky family. Most nights, you will find me either curled up with a great book or, more often, sitting at my computer, tapping out the countless visions in my head. To me, there’s nothing better in a narrative than perfectly flawed but strong characters and intense romance that is sexy, deep, and sensual. Mm…I liken such stories to a box of Godiva. Decadent and delicious! You can’t stop at just one. In fact, I’m now hard at work on my next novel—A Naked Beauty, the conclusion to Fat Girl.

Excerpt

 

“Okay, this is how you do it.” Nick took a packet of sugar, ripped it open and emptied the contents on top of his hand. “Lick.” He licked. “Shot.” He squeaked out the word. “And suck.” He quickly picked up a lemon wedge from the bowl in the center of the table and sucked hard on it. “Your turn.” He looked over at Lisa with an I-dare-you look on his face. She looked across the table from me, silently telling me he should know better.

I rolled my eyes back at her. “You too.” Mason nudged me in the side. “Come on,” he urged until I picked up a packet of sugar and handed one to Lisa.

She shook the contents of the packet down to one end keeping her eyes on Nick. “Are you even old enough to be here?” she teased him.

“I’m old enough,” he replied with a smirk.

Lisa looked at me and winked. Then she took a hold of Nick’s hand, turned it upside down and dumped the sugar on the inside of his wrist. The other three guys chuckled and Nick smiled nervously. She leaned over him in a seductive manner and gently licked the sugar off Nick’s wrist. Nick blushed four shades of red while Lisa took her shot and eagerly sucked on a lemon wedge. I couldn’t stop laughing.

“Top that!” Lisa dared me and slid a shot towards me.

“Please . . .” I shifted in my seat towards Mason and ripped the sugar packet open. Mason had a devilish grin on his face. I smiled and shook my head at him. I tilted his head to the side and brushed his curls out of my way, dumping the sugar on the small of his neck. That brought about another holler from the other three guys and Lisa roared. I leaned into Mason so he could feel my breath against his neck and slowly dragged my tongue over his warm skin, did the shot, and sucked on the lemon. Everyone at the table cheered.

I smiled over at Mason not believing I had just done that to him. From the look on his face, he couldn’t believe it either. Each of the guys picked up their shot, toasted Lisa and I, and downed them.

“Okay, it’s on soccer mom.” Lisa said with a smirk as the waitress brought around a fresh round of drinks and shots for us all.  She playfully pushed Nick’s face sideways and scattered the sugar grains along his cheek, ending right next to his lips. Nick was grinning from ear to ear in anticipation. Lisa twisted herself around to where she was nearly sitting on Nick’s lap. She caressed his cheek as she slowly dragged her tongue over the sugar, ending with a long passionate kiss. This trick brought about a round of applause and cheers from the guys, who then immediately turned to me to see if I was going to attempt to top her last play.

“Was that supposed to be sexy?” I tossed at her jokingly. “This is sexy.” I lifted up another sugar packet and gave it a good shake before I turned towards Mason. “Stick out your tongue please.” He obliged. I shook the sugar over his tongue. “Forgive me if this is out of line,” I whispered softly in his ear when everyone else thought I was just tormenting him. Mason turned towards me cupping my face in his hands and sliding his tongue gently over mine. Then he tightened his hold just a bit and finished the kiss with a passion and fire that I had not felt in years. He literally took my breath away. When he finally broke away from me he buried his face in my neck and whispered softly, “Ditto.”

Synopsis:

Working hard…and working late…has never been so sexy.

 Working Hard…

Juliette Jauntie knows how to keep things under control: crushing deadlines, insane workload, a secret reckless side.  Nothing gets her riled up anymore. Nothing but her biggest competition, the high-powered, predatory and oh-so-handsome Johnny Danger.

 And Working Late…

Former Ranger, Johnny is ruthlessly devoted to Danger Enterprises, the company he built from the ground up.  So when Juliette blows into his world, with her amped-up energy and furrowed brow and her red-painted toenails, asking questions that piss off a lot of wealthy people, Johnny knows he needs to stay focused.

 Pin her down, get some answers, and walk away.  Ignore how his body hums every time she’s near.

  …Has Never Been So Sexy

When Juliette’s small time report causes big time problems for one of Johnny’s clients, he hunts her down at a remote ski resort to demand answers.  But Juliette has no intention of being intimidated, nor of backing down.   And she has absolutely no intention of falling victim to Johnny’s seductive charms.

 Two out of three’s not bad.

 When their sexy showdown blows the lid off a scorching passing and uncovers a shocking crime hidden in plain sight, the stakes mount and trouble skyrockets, and Johnny knows he’s in real trouble.  Because with Juliette in the mix, more than his business is at stake: he  might just lose his heart.

Excerpt

…..“I don’t like sharks,” Johnny said, his voice pitched low.

 

Well, he was a bag full of surprises tonight.

 

I turned but let my gaze glance off him this time, like I’d read you were supposed to do with wizards, if Harry Dresden had any wisdom at all to dispense, and I was pretty sure he did.

 

“You what?”

 

“Sharks.  I don’t like sharks.”

 

I sat back, drink in hand, considering him and the implications of this. They were myriad.  Amusing. Confusing.

 

“Okay,” I said thoughtfully.  “So, does that mean you don’t go—”

 

“Swimming?  No.  I avoid open waters,” he said, and lifted an eyebrow.  Either daring me to laugh or inquiring if I, too, avoided open waters.  His fingers slid around the rim of his glittering glass, turning it slowly, so secret little rainbows darted through the dark hair on his wrist.

 

“So, you’re scared of shar—”

 

“Don’t.  Like.  Don’t like sharks,” he clarified.

 

I smiled.  He smiled back.  It made me realize how strong the drink was; I could feel its effects sliding through my body in slow, bubbly waves of heat.

 

“Wow,” I said, holding the confidence gingerly.  “I didn’t know.”

 

His shoulders lifted in a shrug. “Now you do.”

 

I squinted slightly into the near-distance.  “I never considered sharks.  I will now.”

 

“Don’t.  It’s stupid.”

 

“Well, they’re big,” I allowed.

 

“Sharp teeth.”

 

“Eating machines.”

 

“I’m taking a SCUBA course,” he said.

 

“I heard they can swim for—  You’re what?”

 

“Taking a SCUBA class.  Doing a dive in Australia next year.”

 

I blinked at him.  “Don’t you think you might run into some sharks out there?”

 

“That’s the point.”

 

I laughed and felt oddly lighter. “Right.  Me too.” I tapped the table. “I’m doing ski SCUBA.”

 

He laughed too, warm and rich and deep, and leaned forward to splash more whisky in his glass. And more vodka into mine.

 

Did I stop him?  No.

 

“Here’s to scaring yourself shitless,” he said, lifting his glass.  We toasted again. Grinned at each other.  We were becoming positively chummy.  I was getting a little tipsy.  A little stupid.  If I wasn’t careful, I was going to start coloring outside the lines.

 

We settled back in our seats.  “So, what else is on your shitless list, Jauntie? What else you scared of?” he asked, and although he sounded truly curious, I knew better: he was testing.

 

The stack of files Johnny had brought up was at the corner of my vision and, seeing how the list of my fears was a long one, I went with the most obvious. “IRS investigations.”

 

He grinned.

 

“Drinking in empty bars.”

 

He nudged the bottle of vodka my way.

 

I peered at it, then slid my gaze up. “Expensive jewelry.”

 

He laughed.

 

“You.” Stupid confessions. “I didn’t mean that.”

 

His silence was unnerving.  The way his eyes almost gleamed in reflected light was even more so.

 

“I just…you can be so…you loom,” I explained lamely.

 

He looked surprised.  “I loom?”

 

“You loom.”

 

“I didn’t know.”

 

“Now you do.” I downed the rest of my drink in a single swallow. “Are you going to stop?”

 

He reflected a moment. “Probably not.”

 

“You shouldn’t,” I agreed glumly.  “It makes people do what you want.”

 

“Yeah?  Is it going to start working on you anytime soon?”

 

I gave a half-hearted shrug. “I’m oppositional.”

 

He snorted.

 

I swiveled around and looked at him directly.  “What about you?” I demanded, since we were clearly acting like drunks and sharing secrets and saying things that shouldn’t be said. “You and your hot prospects and your movie star girlfriends and your perfect teeth, what else are you scared of?”

 

He looked taken aback. “I have perfect teeth?”

 

“Yes, dammit, you do.”  The words were tumbling out.  “And perfect hair and perfect….”  I made a swiping motion at his whole body.  “It’s very annoying.  You know some people work extremely hard and never have teeth like that?”

 

He gave this the thoughtful consideration it deserved.  “People work hard at having perfect teeth?”

 

“People work hard, period.”  I tapped the tabletop in an illustrative, menacing way.  “And they don’t have perfect anything.  Period. You, you have it all.”

 

He shrugged.  “I work hard for it all.”

 

I shrugged back.  “So what?  Lots of people work hard.”

 

“You mean you work hard.”

 

“I mean me.  No, wait, I mean—” I stopped short.  I needed to remember he was a lawyer as well as an accountant; best not to talk too much.  I made an immediate vow to that effect.

 

“You’re jealous,” he surmised.

 

“You bet, I am,” I retorted sharply.  So much for vows.  “I have the same degrees as you.  I work just as hard as you.  I work just as late as you.”

 

“You don’t work as smart as me.”

 

I narrowed my eyes at him.  “That’s helpful.  Thanks.”

 

He took another sip of whisky.  He looked perfectly relaxed, like he was enjoying himself.  I felt like a tiger about to pounce.  “You’re too tense,” he said helpfully.  “You need to loosen up.”

 

I closed my eyes and forced myself to inhale.  “I’m well aware of that.”  I leaned my head back until it touched the back of the chair.  “That’s why I’m here.  I’m loosening.”

 

He laughed.  My eyes popped open.  He was looking around, at the work papers strewn across the table, at my empty fifty-two ounce refillable coffee mug and my stupid, pathetic rolling suitcase, because I didn’t even want to spend one night out in the world.  Had to hurry back home to all my nothing.

 

I tilted my head down slightly and looked at him.  “I’m trying.  A person can’t just…let go.” I waved my hand around.

 

“Sure she can.”

 

I straightened and pushed to the edge of my seat, all pounce-y.  “Did it ever occur to you that maybe I don’t know how?”

 

“Oh yeah, it occurred.”

 

“I need practice.”

 

He sipped his drink. “You need headbanging sex.”

 

I straightened with a snap. “Sex?”

 

“Headbanging sex,” he clarified.  “The kind where your body takes over, and you’re so hot your skin burns, and you pant for breath and forget your name.”

 

“Oh. That kind.”  And here I’d thought I needed a hobby.  I put my hands to my face.  My fingers were cool stripes against my hot cheeks.  “You do know, you’re the one who brought all this work up here?” I nodded toward the papers.  “If anyone’s hyper-focused on work, it’s you.”

 

“Yeah, but I know how to have sex.”

 

I gasped and dropped my hands. “I know how to have sex.”

 

He smiled.  “Yeah?”

 

“Absolutely.”

 

He just kept smiling at me.  Like he didn’t believe me.

 

“I have sex all the time,” I informed him.  I left out the part about it being mostly with a showerhead.

 

He still didn’t say anything.  His silence would be my downfall, the path to my truth.

 

“I mean,” I said after another moment of it, “maybe it’s been a little while.”

 

No laughter now, just his gaze burning through the room.

 

“And I don’t know that it was ever headbanging,” I allowed, looking away.  I picked up a napkin, began shredding it.  “But how often does that happen in real life anyhow?  Books and movies, but real people…?”  I dabbed at a bead of water with the napkin shreds.  My skin felt hot.  “But that’s my fault.  You know,” I rolled my hand through the air, “the uptightness and all.”

 

“Your fault,” he repeated softly, like he was turning the idea over in his head.

 

I nodded.  “Yeah.  It’s hard to make me lose my head, let alone bang it.  I don’t know how.”

 

Silence.  Then, “Want me to show you?”

 

Five words, that’s all it took.  My body shivered, a hot, glorious sort of shiver.  My brain rebelled.  “Show me?” I said stupidly.

 

His eyes never left mine.

 

I noticed I was trembling.  “What does that mean?”

 

“It means I fuck you.”

 

I got to my feet.  I had no idea what I was doing, and standing sure wasn’t going to help things, since my legs were shaking.  “Fuck me?”

 

He nodded slowly.  “Yep.”

 

“You’re going to do me a favor and fuck me?” I whispered.  My head was buzzing.

 

“Let’s try this again,” he said softly.  His eyes locked on mine—dammit—and he started speaking—whispering really, promising—and I knew I was doomed, “I want to fuck you, Juliette.  Please let me fuck you.  I really, really want to make you come.”

I’m an award-winning, traditionally-published romance author branching out into self-publishing under the pseudonym  Bella Love. I write super sexy, fun, contemporary romances and romantic mystery/suspense about confident, alpha heroes who aren’t afraid of equally strong women. I never know if I should call the stories ‘erotic romance’ or not, because everyone has different expectations for that.  Know this: they’re scorchingly hot stories, the sex is central to the romance, and there are many fully and some creatively realized love scenes.
