Read an Exclusive #Excerpt from Dianne Duvall's Shadows Strike (#Giveaway)

Bestselling author, Dianne Duvall, returns with the sixth book in her exciting and addictive Immortal Guardians series - Shadows Strike!

Shadows Strike
(Immortal Guardians #6)
by Dianne Duvall
Paperback/eBook, 320 pages
Expected publication: August 25th 2015 by Zebra
ISBN 1420129821
The Immortal Guardians protect the innocent in secret. Sometimes the secret gets out…

U.S. law enforcement agent Heather Lane can read minds. But not the future. The dream of battle and blood that recurs every night must be a fluke, some obscure terror from her own mind. What its significance might be, she can’t guess: an attack from seven psychotic vampires at once, only separated from nightmare by an eighth very different immortal. A handsome, brave man fighting at her side, a man she misses when she wakes.

Then the dream comes true. Heather is flung into a war between predators and protectors of humanity, the man from her dreams beside her again. Except now that she’s awake, she isn’t sure she can trust Ethan, or the shadow organization he represents. The U.S. military doesn’t trust either of them. But against an onslaught of evil like the one that’s coming, it will take everything they have just to survive…

“Stop worrying,” she admonished and gave him a little shake.

The movement rubbed the front of her body against his, stirring an instant response.

Sending her a sly smile, he slid his hands up and down her back. “I’ll worry until you do something to take my mind off things.”

She smiled. “So you’re saying you need a distraction?” Rising onto her toes, she pressed her hips into his.

Pleasure darted through him. “Hell yes.” Ethan slid his hands down to her shapely ass and lifted her up with ease.

Laughing, Heather locked her legs around his waist. “Sounds good to me.” She cupped his face in her hands and pressed soft lips to his.

Ethan thought he would never grow tired of the taste of her. Nor did he think that the sizzle of excitement that always seared him when she kissed him would ever dissipate. He parted his lips and groaned when she boldly stroked his tongue with hers.

He started down the hallway, loving the feel of her riding the rigid length behind his fly.

“Does this mean we aren’t hunting tonight?” Zach asked from the kitchen.

Ethan tore his lips from Heather’s long enough to say, “I’m taking the night off.”

Then their mouths fused once more, hungry and aggressive.

“We aren’t hunting tonight,” Zach told Lisette, his tone deadpan. “Whatever shall we do with ourselves?”

“Not what you’re thinking,” she retorted with a laugh. “Our bedroom isn’t soundproofed.”

“So? We’ll make a game of it. I’ll see how many orgasms I can give you while you see how long you can go without making a sound.”


“Come on, guys,” Tracy complained. “I’m standing right here.”
