ABOUT THE BOOK


Broken Dawn
Book #10 Immortal Guardians
By Dianne Duvall

June 16, 2020
Delve into an exciting new stand-alone novel in New York Times bestselling author Dianne Duvall's "fast-paced and humorous" (Publishers Weekly), "utterly addictive" (RT Book Reviews) Immortal Guardians series.

Nick Belanger can't stop thinking about the single mother who lives next door. She's smart. She's funny. She's so beautiful he can't stare at her too long for fear his eyes will start to glow. But Kayla thinks he's just an ordinary guy who works in security. Finding out he instead is a powerful immortal warrior who hunts and slays psychotic vampires for a living may not go over well, particularly since she has a daughter she doesn't want to endanger.

Kayla Dorman can keep neither her gaze nor her thoughts from straying to the man next door. Who can blame her really? He is the epitome of tall, dark, and handsome with smart, charming, and honorable thrown in. He's also a few years younger than her and surely would not be interested in a single mom who hasn't dated since her divorce. At least that's what she thinks until an accident nearly takes her life and Nick risks all to save her.

The dynamics of their relationship swiftly change. The friendship they've developed over the years deepens into love as the two spend every minute they can together, laughing and teasing, never suspecting a threat may lurk in the shadows. But that threat soon strikes, making it clear that Nick is the target and his enemy doesn't care if Kayla gets caught in the cross fire. Though Kayla bravely rises to the occasion and is determined to do whatever it takes to help Nick defeat his enemy, Nick is terrified of losing her. Can he identify and eliminate his new nemesis before the man takes everything from him?





Excerpt:

Nick’s back door opened and closed.

Kayla’s heartbeat picked up as footsteps approached the fence and his handsome face appeared above it.

“Hi,” he said softly.

“Hi.” Damn it. Why did she feel so nervous?

“Where’s Becca?” His raven hair was slicked back from a shower.

“Upstairs, asleep. She doesn’t want to get too far off her morning schedule before she goes back to school.”

He nodded. “May I join you?”

“Sure.”

He gripped the top of the five-foot fence with one hand and vaulted over it as effortlessly as if he’d jumped on a trampoline.

Smiling, Kayla shook her head. “It must be cool to be so strong.”

Though he nodded, he didn’t smile as he slowly approached her. “I wanted to apologize.”

The nearer he came, the more her pulse raced and butterflies danced in her belly. “For what?”

When he stopped, they were so close they almost touched. “For earlier.” He shifted his weight from one foot to the other. “For pulling away when you touched me.”

She swallowed as embarrassment drove heat into her cheeks. “Oh. That.” Just ask him. “Have you changed your mind, Nick? Do you want us to just be friends?”

“HELL no.” The words left his lips so forcefully she couldn’t doubt them.

“Then why did you pull away?”

He moved around her in a half circle that left him standing with his back to her house.

Kayla swiveled as he did, holding her breath while she stared up at him and awaited his response.

When it came, it was not the one she expected.

Sliding an arm around her waist, he drew her up against him so quickly she gasped. His head dipped. His lips claimed hers with enough hunger to curl her toes. He fisted his other hand in her hair, tilting her head to gain better access.

Moaning, she wrapped her arms around his strong neck and kissed him back for all she was worth, tongues stroking and touching and stoking the fire until she had to draw back and suck in a quick breath of air just to keep from combusting.

Releasing her hair, he stared down at her and motioned to his face. “This is why.” His eyes glowed with vibrant amber light. “Now that I’ve tasted you and touched you, I want you so much that even the slightest brush of your hand makes me want to strip you bare and lick you all over.”

“Oh sh**.”

“Exactly.”
