Phantom Shadows Book Promo + Giveaway

Phantom Shadows

Dianne Duvall lures readers into a world of romance and suspense, where love can mean the difference between life and death. . .

Dr. Melanie Lipton is no stranger to the supernatural. She knows immortals better than they know themselves, right down to their stubborn little genes. So although a handsome rogue immortal seems suspicious to her colleagues, Sebastien Newcombe intrigues Melanie. His history is checkered, his scars are impressive, and his ideas are daring. But it's not his ideas that have Melanie fighting off surges of desire. . .
Bastien is used to being the bad guy. In fact, he can't remember the last time he had an ally he could trust. But Melanie is different--and under her calm, professional exterior he senses a passion beyond anything in his centuries of experience. Giving in to temptation is out of the question--he can't put her in danger. But she isn't asking him. . .




She stared at him in silence for so long he began to feel a bit self-conscious. “You can feel other people's emotions?” she asked finally.
“Yes. And Stuart's told me he was lying to try to save his ass.”
Again she stared at him.
“What?” he asked when the silence stretched.
“You can feel my emotions? Right now?”
“No. I have to touch you to feel them.”
“So . . .”
He could see her considering it, trying to remember every time he had touched her or she had touched him. At the network. In her car. At David's. Trying to remember what she might have inadvertently revealed.
“You might have mentioned it. Given me a little warning.”
“Such didn't occur to me.”
More silence.

  34. This series is amazing Dianne. I can't wait to read this next instalment. Thank you for this wonderful giveaway too!!

  35. Hi, miki! I haven’t decided how many books will be in the series, but intend for there to be at least seven.

    Hi, Maly! For the mortal characters, I just think of names that seem to suit the characters. For the Immortal Guardians, I research what names were popular in the year and country of their birth, then choose the one that I find the most appealing for each particular character. :-).

    Thanks, Natasha!

    Thanks, bn100!

    Hi, June M.! I like the name Bastien, too. :-) It immediately leaped out at me when I made up a list of names common in area and time of his birth. :-)

    Hi, Lauren M.! Bastien was a very fun bad boy to write. LOL. I hope you’ll like his story!

    Hi, Lindsay Avalon! LOL. I hope you’ll like Bastien and Melanie’s story!

    Thanks, Joanne! Hmm . . . Perhaps Steampunk, simply because I’ve never read it and don’t really know what it is. LOL.

    Hi, Texas Book Lover! Thanks! I hope you WILL love it!

    Hi, Laurie! THanks for joining us! I hope you’ll like my Immortal Guardians!

  36. Hi, Elizabeth H.! I’m so glad you’re enjoying the series! I don’t have a specific number of books in mind for the series, but intend for there to be at least seven. :-)

    Hi, Pam Rushen! I hope you’ll like it! Thanks for joining us!

    Thanks, sienny! I’m glad you liked it! Good luck!

    Hi, S.A.! Yay! I’m so glad you liked it! Good luck!

    Hi, KMichelleC87! Thanks! I love doing giveaways. :-)

    Thanks, Kat!

    Hi, andie! I’m so glad you liked Darkness Dawns!

    Thanks, bdulin12! I hope you’ll like it!

    Hi, books4me! Right now I’m focusing all of my attention on the Immortal Guardians, but I do plan to produce a second series when I get a chance. :-)

    Hi, Muffy! Glad you like to cover! Good luck!


  37. Hi, leann! I hope you’ll like my Immortal Guardians!

    Hi, Di! I admit I was pleased when I realized how many readers thought he could be redeemed and wanted him to find his own HEA. I hope you’ll like him!

    Hi, DarkBloodyVamp! Bastien surprised me by becoming one of my favorite characters in the series. :-)

    Hi, elizabeth! Thanks for joining us! I hope you’ll like my immortals!

    Hi, Diane! Generally speaking, yes. I know where I want the series arc to go in terms of the action plot, but I don’t know who the heroes and heroines will be that far in advance. I usually don’t know who the hero and heroine of the next book will be until I’m halfway through the current manuscript. :-)

    Thanks, Mary Preston! I hope you’ll like it!

    Thanks, erin! Good luck!

    Hi, Barbara E.! I hope you’ll enjoy them!

    Thanks, JenM! I’m glad you like the excerpts! Good luck!

    Hi, TheJoneses! I’m so glad you liked the first two books! Thanks for purchasing Phantom Shadows! I hope you’ll like it!

    Hi, DANIELA! Yes, you can. Each book has its own unique romance and conflict resolution, but I still recommend reading them in order if you can so you can “witness firsthand” how the characters and the villains they face change.

    Hi, kazza16! I’m so glad you’re enjoying the series! I hope you’ll like Bastien and Melanie’s story!

  38. I have loved these books and cant wait for this one to come out.

  39. Love the giveaway, =) i loved the two first books and can´t wait for this one!!

    best wishes & Happy Thursday!

  40. I love this series and I can't wait to get my hands on the new book! Thanks for the awesome giveaway!
