Night Unbound (Immortal Guardians) by Dianne Duvall
Publication Date: September 2, 2014 by Zebra
Format: eBook/Mass Market Paperback, 432 pages
Genre: Paranormal Romance
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?

Top 10 Favorite Immortal Guardians Quotes
Thank you so much for joining me today! I’m thrilled to be here, celebrating the release of NIGHT UNBOUND, the fifth book in my Immortal Guardians paranormal romance series.
In case you’re new to my series, I’ll just take a moment to explain that the vampires and immortals in my series are both infected with a very rare symbiotic virus that produces the increased speed, strength, and regenerative capabilities—as well as the photosensitivity and need for blood—that both possess. Vampires are humans who have been infected with the virus and, unfortunately, suffer progressive brain damage that causes them to rapidly descend into madness. Immortals are gifted ones, men and women born with advanced DNA, who have been infected with the virus. Their advanced DNA protects them from the madness and bestows upon them special abilities (such as telepathy, telekinesis, and teleportation) that aid them in hunting and destroying the maddened vampires who prey upon humans. While my Immortal Guardians struggle to keep the vampire menace in check, new, more formidable foes rise up against them—each more dangerous than the last, presenting even greater challenges and threatening the Immortal Guardians’ very existence.
I thought I would give you a glimpse today of the family of immortals and humans that people my books by offering you a list of my top ten favorite quotes from the first five books (and the first novella) in my series.
“I’m not antisocial. I just want to be left alone.” ~ Roland, DARKNESS DAWNS
“You stabbed me in the ass?” ~ Bastien, DARKNESS DAWNS
“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
“This had better not be another f***ing fantasy”
~ Zach, NIGHT UNBOUND
“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
“Is this going to get weird? Like kinky weird?”
~ John, IN STILL DARKNESS
“I did NOT need to see that. I mean I REALLY did not need to see that. Jenny, honey, grab one of my daggers and poke out both my eyes.”
~ Ethan, NIGHT UNBOUND
“All right. All right. Settle down. We’re all glad Sarah stabbed Bastien in the ass.”
~ Seth, PHANTOM SHADOWS
“I’ll blush as soon as the desire to decapitate you has passed.”
~ Lisette, NIGHT UNBOUND
“Great. There goes our security deposit.”
~ Sean, DARKNESS RISES
I have many more favorite quotes, of course . . . so many that I post one on my blog every Friday. But these continue to linger at the top of the list. 🙂
