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?

KT Book Reviews Interview with Dianne Duvall


Thank you so much for having me here today and for helping me celebrate the upcoming

September 2nd release of NIGHT UNBOUND, the fifth book in my Immortal Guardians 



1. What is the most exciting thing that has happened so far in your latest release?

Hmm. I should probably say that the most exciting thing that happens in NIGHT

UNBOUND is the Immortal Guardians discovering who is working against them. But

I’m actually more excited about Zach falling in love with Lisette. I originally intended

for Zach to remain a sort of shadowy background character in the series. But the

“lollipop” scene in PHANTOM SHADOWS really made me want to help him find his

own HEA. He reminds me a bit of Bastien, one of my favorite characters thus far. Zach

is an outsider who has been branded a traitor. And he really couldn’t care less about what

the Immortal Guardians think of him . . . except for Lisette. And Lisette has lived so

long, burdened by the guilt of accidentally transforming her brothers. Once Richart and

Étienne found happiness, I was eager for her to find the same.



2. We talk a lot here on KT Book Reviews about wine and chocolate, what’s your fav?

I’m actually not much of a wine drinker. But I’ll eat milk chocolate in just about any

form and am not very choosy about the brand. I love it alone, with almonds, on pretzels,

in peanut butter cups, in milk, in pie (mmmm, German chocolate pie) . . . You name it.



3. What is something you want your reader to know about your latest release?


For those who are new to my Immortal Guardians series: If you like alpha males and

strong heroines, danger mixed with humor, action interspersed with tender moments,

and—of course—steamy romance, then this book is for you! You don’t have to read

the other books in the series first to read this one, but you will probably enjoy NIGHT

UNBOUND more if you do simply because you’ll know more of the secondary

characters’ backgrounds. (The earlier books in the series are on sale, by the way, for the

entire month of August on Kindle, Nook, and Kobo.)

For Immortal Guardians fans: You will see quite a bit of Seth in this one and learn

more about him—and Zach—than you have in previous books. For the Bastien lovers

out there, Bastien has some great scenes in NIGHT UNBOUND. One of my favorites,

in fact, features Bastien and Melanie. You’ll also get to know more members of the

Immortal Guardians family. And I think you’ll like what Sheldon is up to. ;-)



4. What’s your favorite quote?

I actually have a long list of them. But if I had to choose one, it would be this one,

spoken by Lisette’s brother (who was the hero of IN STILL DARKNESS):

“I did NOT need to see that,” Richart said. “I mean I REALLY did not need to see

that. Jenna, honey, grab one of my daggers and poke out both my eyes.”



5. What will be or has been your summer read?

It’s been a particularly busy summer for me. My novella IN STILL DARKNESS was

re-released as a solo ebook at the end of July. I’ve been writing furiously on Immortal

Guardians Book 6 (coming in 2015). And I’ve been working on promotion for and

eagerly anticipating the release of NIGHT UNBOUND. But I DID manage to work

in some audiobooks, the latest of which was Laurann Dohner’s TRUE, and read Ditter

Kellen’s The Seeker series. Love those ladies!
