Top 5 Favorite Quotes from The Lasaran by Dianne Duvall + #Giveaway

Top 5 Favorite Quotes from The Lasaran

Hello! Thank you for joining us. I’m very excited to be here today, celebrating the release of THE LASARAN, the first book in my new Aldebarian Alliance series. If you enjoy sci-fi or paranormal romance with strong heroes and kick-ass heroines, fun secondary characters, and lots of action, passion, humor, and happily-ever-afters, then I think you’ll like Taelon and Lisa’s story. To give you an idea of what you’ll find in THE LASARAN, I thought I would share my Top 5 Favorite quotes from it:


She broke the kiss and stared up into emerald green.
Taelon affected her in ways no other man had.
“What are we doing?” she whispered.
A twinkle of mischief entered his eyes. “Breaking a number of Lasaran laws.”


She drew her hand down over his biceps.
His Adam’s apple bobbed, and something she couldn’t identify flickered in his eyes.
“I’m sorry,” she said, her voice hushed while the alarm continued to blare. “Did I hurt you?”
“No. It’s . . . You’re the first person who has touched me—not with intent to harm, but with kindness—in a very long time.”
His words broke her heart.


Her lips turned up in a wry smile. “I’m not that innocent.”
He smiled. “And not so sweet? At least not to the soldier you threatened to shoot.”
She laughed. “Apparently outright terror can make me ballsy.”
Familiar with the Earth term, he laughed.


Seth sheathed one of his swords and drew a cell phone from his back pocket. “Chris. It’s Seth. . . . . Some of your contacts in the military and intelligence agencies have access to satellite data, correct, including that scrutinized by NORAD? . . . I want you to put them on alert. Tell them to keep an eye out for anything that may show up in David’s vicinity and quash it as soon as it arises if it does.” He listened for a moment. “An alien transport vessel just landed in his backyard. . . . No, I’m not sh*tting you. . . . That won’t be necessary. . . . Thank you.” Pocketing the phone, he glanced at David. “Well, that’s a call I never thought I’d have to make.”


When she opened her eyes, moisture glimmered in them. “I’m sorry.”
“Don’t apologize. On my planet, tears are not viewed as a weakness but as a natural expression of one’s emotions and an ordinary response to pain or stress.”
“Your planet sounds pretty awesome.”
“It is.” He flashed her a grin. “Except for the no-touching part.”
She laughed. “Yeah. That would suck.”


I hope you’ll enjoy Lisa and Taelon’s story!

The Lasaran
Book #1 Aldebarian Alliance
By Dianne Duvall
April 21, 2020
New York Times bestselling author Dianne Duvall brings readers the first novel in a thrilling new sci-fi romance series full of action, intrigue, humor, and happily-ever-afters.

Taelon searches the galaxy for his younger sister, who mysteriously disappeared while on a diplomatic mission. When an ally reveals that she was seized and is being held prisoner on Earth, Taelon descends upon the blue planet, intent on freeing her and exacting vengeance. However, all does not go as planned. Before he can find her, Taelon is captured and becomes the subject of torturous experiments. For what feels like an eternity, all he knows is pain and fury… until a mind tentatively touches his own and a woman’s voice forever changes his world.

After suffering tragic losses, Lisa is finally beginning to carve out a future for herself when chance sends her to the Anomalous Cognition Research Institute. What at first appears to be a benign organization seeking participants for a psychic study instead turns out to be a government facility harboring a much darker intent. Lisa discovers this too late and soon becomes the unwilling subject of a terrifying experiment. Just as fear and desperation threaten to consume her, a deep, compelling voice penetrates the looming insanity and lends her hope.

Having seen only the worst of humanity, Taelon is shocked when Lisa risks everything to free him. Together the two make their escape, and Taelon finds himself fascinated by the small human woman who—despite all she’s suffered—can still laugh and tease and lure smiles from him. Friendship swiftly grows between them as they work together to evade soldiers intent on capturing them and find themselves hunted by mystifying preternatural beings. Through it all, Lisa steadfastly remains by his side, stealing more of his heart each day while she helps him unravel the mystery of his sister’s fate. Can they find his sister before the hunters find them? If they survive their quest, will Taelon have to bid Lisa farewell… or can he coax her into leaving her planet and joining him for the adventure of a lifetime?
