“I care about you,” she whispered, pressing a kiss to his lips. “I’m falling in love with you.” She tasted his warm, soft lips again. “I want you.”
“I want to feel you clamp down around me and squeeze me tight when you come for me again,” he told her, every muscle tense.

I opened my mouth, out tongues met, and the kiss went from zero to sixty.  I clutched her face, needing her, inhaling her, as she held on and gave back as good as she got.
“I’d eat you so good, Tendra.  You’d come so hard, you’d black out.  Then when you came to, I’d fuck you for hours, till you were addicted to me and my tongue and my cock.”
I gripped his hair.  “Now that you’ve tasted me, how about you fuck me.”  My voice turned into a moan.  “I ache, so bad.”

Giveaway + Excerpt from Blade of Darkness by Dianne Duvall

Return to the “utterly addictive” (RT Book Reviews) world of New York Times bestselling author Dianne Duvall’s Immortal Guardians.

Dana Pembroke has been able to glimpse the future of those she touches for as long as she can remember.  But she never saw Aidan coming.  When the tall, dark Celt with the charming grin yet world-weary eyes walks through her door, the future she sees for him is one full of violence, danger, deception… and passion.  Because amidst the terrifying battles that unfold in her visions, she also sees herself in Aidan’s arms and in his bed.  Dana knows she should keep her distance, but the tender moments and laughter they share entice her even as she finds herself thrust into a world of vampires, immortals, and other preternatural beings.

Immortal Guardian Aidan O’Byrne has been hunting and slaying psychotic vampires for nearly three thousand years, so visions of bloody battles don’t trouble him.  The battles Dana foresees, however, show Aidan’s brethren turning against him, so he can’t help but feel alarmed.  While he spends as much time as he can with Dana, struggling to decipher her dire predictions, Aidan finds himself utterly smitten. Hope rises that he has finally found a woman who can banish the darkness and loneliness that plague him. But when vampires begin targeting Dana and a powerful enemy spawns chaos, will fate grant them time to find happiness together?

Excerpt from Blade of Darkness

Smiling, she motioned to the bed. “You recognize this place?”

He nodded, his eyes acquiring an amber glow. “This is where we made love in your vision.”

Her pulse picked up. “So it is.” What the hell was wrong with her? She had just had the scare of a lifetime—two actually—but suddenly could think of nothing but the feel of Aidan’s hands on her, tugging her shirt over her head so he could touch bare skin, teasing her nipples and tantalizing her with his tongue.

Heat flashed through her.

“Shall I tell Heather we’d like another room?” he asked.

Dana shook her head.

He took a step toward her. “Do you want me to sleep on the floor?”

Again she wagged her head from side to side, staggered by the desire that suddenly coursed through her.

Aidan slowly approached her. “What do you want?” he asked softly.



“I want you,” she stated boldly. “Naked. I want to feel your bare body against mine.”

His eyes brightened with amber light. “Dana,” he whispered, his voice deepening as he drew close enough to touch.

“I think,” she said breathlessly as she tilted her head back to look up at him, “that I’m doing that thing where—after narrowly escaping death—you feel a sudden, driving need to reaffirm life.”

He settled his hands on her hips and squeezed as though he wanted desperately to let those hands go exploring and was barely keeping them in check. “Don’t tempt me, sweetheart.”

Easing forward, she leaned her body into his. “I’ll tempt you and more,” she promised, sucking in a breath when he slid his large hands around and down to cup her ass.

Both moaned when she rose onto her toes and arched against the hard length behind his fly.

Master of My Body by Marissa Honeycutt

Favorite Quotes

Difficult girls gave Vamar an excuse to be as cruel as he wanted. Not that he necessarily needed an excuse, but most of the time, he tried to present himself as refined, above the need to torture and abuse. It was more fun to fuck with their minds than their bodies. Bodies healed. Minds usually didn’t. Be kind to them, speaking soft words as he caused immense amounts of pain was his favorite activity.  
Master bent down and started kissing her neck. She didn’t want to enjoy the touch of his lips, soft and warm and awakening the desire she tried so hard to keep art bay. She didn’t want to close her eyes and sign as he combed his fingers through her hair. But she did.
Master caressed her breasts, pulling gently at her nipples and kissing the back of her neck. He moved his hips and she gasped as a small orgasm ripped through her body. “Wouldn’t it be better to not feel the shame?” he whispered. “To just enjoy the depravity. You’ll never escape it, Sabrina. I won’t let you. You will become like me one way or the other. Just give in.”

Silver Silence by Nalini Singh

Favorite Quotes

Being innocently oblivious to silent reprimands was a skill he’d cultivated as a curious bear cub with three older sisters whose stuff he’d liked to nose about in.
“You have a lot of gray suits.” Valentin got up, began to fit in the second part of the new lock. “Light gray, dark gray, blackish gray, gray-gray, gray with fine pinstripes, gray so pale it’s nearly white …” A shake of his head, his hair all tumbled black strands. “I never knew there were so many types of gray before you.”

  • Silver Silence
  • SILVER SILENCE by Nalini Singh

    Laughing at the cubs’ antics, Valentin jogged down the slight incline and waded into what had to be ice-cold water after kicking off his boots and socks. He splashed the cubs, laughed when they splashed him back. Running so they could chase him, he turned abruptly and chased them back, to their unhidden joy.

    Silver took a seat on the grass. When the female bear looked her way, she inclined her head in a silent greeting. The bear did the same, then they both watched an alpha bear play with two energetic cubs, his hands holding rough care for their small bodies.

    By the time Valentin made his way back to her, he was drenched and his eyes weren’t human in any way. When he spoke, his already deep voice was so low it felt like thunder against her skin. “Couldn’t resist,” he said, pushing back his wet hair with one big hand. “If you weren’t in recovery and if I wasn’t in terror of Nova’s wrath, I’d have invited you. The small monsters wanted to play with you.”

    Silver didn’t get to her feet. “Can we stay here a little longer?” It was patent that Valentin had an extremely high tolerance for the cold, but he might want to dry off.

    “Sure,” he said, and, moving away several feet, shook off the wet.

    Fine droplets settled on the skin of her cheek, but she didn’t flinch at the unintentional tactile contact. She also controlled her urge to reach up and touch the water where it lay against her skin. There was no reason to do that, and Silver was alive because she only did things that were rational.

    Settling beside her, Valentin waved at the cubs as their guardian led their tired forms toward a path in the trees that was at the same level as the stream. “Gentler climb,” Valentin told her.

    “They seem too exhausted to make it to Denhome.”

    “It’s all an act—they’re hoping for a ride on their aunt’s back.” His tone held the same fond affection she’d heard when he spoke of Dima. “It’d take more than a few minutes’ play in the water to wipe out those two.”

    The cubs had played with Valentin for almost a half hour. “They’re hyperactive?”
    “They’re baby bears.”

    Silver watched as those baby bears turned toward her and rose up on their back paws, as if in challenge. A stern sound from their caretaker, and they dropped down and scrambled to catch up with her. Their bodies disappeared into the trees as dusk began to turn from orange to shadowy gray.

    Beside her, Valentin sprawled out, bracing himself on his elbows. His drenched T-shirt clung to the ridged muscles of his abdomen, pulled tight across his pectoral muscles, shaped itself over his shoulders. His jeans weren’t much better, outlining the raw muscle of his thighs.
    Valentin Nikolaev was a man of violent physical strength even in human form. Yet he clearly had iron control over it; when he’d played with the children, they’d displayed zero fear of their alpha.

    “You thought about where you’re going to live when you escape the bears who’ve kidnapped you?”
    When she raised an eyebrow at him, he grinned. “Fringe netter with his own Internet channel sent out a breaking report last night. Pasha—who obviously needs more work duties—made up a fake account and posted a comment swearing to have seen you being pulled into a black van by six burly bears in bear form.”

    “You don’t seem too concerned.” Amber eyes and deep voice, he remained very much a bear in human form.

    “Well, according to this ‘eyewitness,’ the getaway driver was in bear form, too. Must’ve been tough for him to steer with one paw since he was drinking a beer at the same time.”
    “Bears,” Silver said, making Valentin throw his head back and laugh that huge laugh that wrapped around her.

    “My men follow orders!”

    “I’m a consultant!” she snapped. “Not your foot soldier. I don’t take orders from you.”

    “You’re fired!” he growled.

     “The gods only know why,” he whispered.  “But I find you sexy as hell.  So far, you’ve been nothing but trouble.”

    “Ugh, stop talking,” she told him, putting the fingers of both hands over his mouth.  “You ruin it when you talk.  I find you sexy as hell too, as long as you stay silent.”

    A note from Jeaniene:

    The first four Night Huntress books were the first books I had ever written, and I never thought they’d be published because I hadn’t started trying to get published at that point. I wrote them for me, which meant that I took more time to explore the characters through alternate scenarios, multiple side plots, additional backstory, additional love scenes, and increased personal revelations.

    When it came time to shop the novels , I had to take out a lot of that material in order to condense the stories to meet average word count lengths. Later, even more content was taken out during the editorial process. However, I saved all that extra material. Over the years, I posted a scene or two to show readers some of what didn’t make it into the published novels, and I was surprised and delighted when readers requested more. Last year, I posted a large, alternate “middle” version of Destined For An Early Grave on my blog, and when I asked readers if they wanted to see more alternate versions, the answer was a resounding yes.

    That’s when I decided to compile the best of those deleted scenes and alternate versions into one single anthology, so readers could see the full version of Cat and Bones’s story. I also wanted to include commentary as to why a particular scene or version didn’t make it into the published books, so readers could get a further glimpse of what went on behind the scenes. The result is Outtakes From The Grave, a Night Huntress series companion anthology. It contains all the deleted scenes I previously posted, plus lots of never-before-posted scenes and alternate versions. While it is not a new novel, it is novel sized. In fact, Outtakes From The Grave turned out to be longer in word count than any book I’d previously published. I very much enjoyed revisiting Cat, Bones, and the rest of the Night Huntress gang with this collection, and I hope that you enjoy it, too :).

The longer he waited, the harder it was to time my breathing.”
    “His breathing was shallow and ragged, his moans deepened as he grabbed fistfuls of my hair. He pulled hard, but it felt good. I liked him controlling me. I could tell he was getting close when he yanked himself out of my mouth and pulled me up by my hair to stand in front of him.”

    Anais kept her eyes closed, feigning sleep and struggling with her thoughts. She had to do this. It didn?t matter that she was beginning to feel she really was safe here, in this cave with Loke. It didn?t matter that she felt as if she was growing closer to her dragon companion, or that they had opened up to each other to a degree. All that mattered was returning to her world.

    She didn?t belong here.

    She needed to get back to Sable and the others and find out what had happened to them.

    She needed to know they were all okay.

    Even though the thought of leaving Loke made a recess of her heart ache.

    She listened to Loke moving around the cave. He had already started the fire again. That had roused her from sleep. She mentally cursed herself for falling asleep when she had meant to just pretend. She had a faint sensation that she had been pretending, and that Loke had come to her, and then she had been dreaming.

    Maybe she had dreamed it all.

    The light touch of his fingers on her face. The way they gently stroked her cheek. The soft words he had murmured in his unfamiliar tongue.

    It had all been a dream.

    She felt sure of it.

    He moved away and she cracked an eye open, watching him heading into the tunnels with his wooden torch. When the light from it disappeared, she made her move.

    Anais sprang to her bare feet and ran to the mouth of the cave, flinching every time she trod on a pebble. She had taken her boots off last night to aid her in her recon mission. She had to move silently to avoid rousing Loke. Every non-human species she had met had heightened senses. Hearing being the most sensitive. She couldn?t have moved quietly enough in her boots. She was having enough trouble moving quietly with bare feet. Another pebble bit into the sole of her left one and she grimaced and hopped a few steps, giving it time to recover.

    The ledge came into view and her heart rocketed, thundering against her chest. She was just going to have a look. That was all. There was no need to get nervous. Her palms sweated and she rubbed them on her black t-shirt. Just a glimpse and then she would go back to the fire. She just wanted to see what was out there.

    She glanced back into the cave, afraid of Loke finding her gone. She didn?t want him to see what she was doing. She didn?t want him to be upset with her and she knew he would be. He would feel as if she had betrayed him by breaking her vow, and that didn?t sit right with her. Not anymore.

    She slowed to a halt at the edge of the ledge and stared down at the dizzying drop to the sweeping cragged side of the black mountain below. It was at least three hundred feet. She swung her gaze left, studying the mountains that formed a wall around the valley.

    Harsh black rock as far as her eyes could see.

    Bleak against the dark grey sky of Hell

    It was incredible. Formidable.

    There was no way she was going to be able to climb up the mountain. It rose sharply from the cave?s ledge, rising up into a jagged peak. Other obsidian peaks met it further down, blending into the most dangerous set of mountains she had ever seen. Not even the world?s best climbers could scale them. She would have to go down into the valley.

    Even that looked as if it was going to be easier said than done. Around a thousand feet down the mountain, the dark green trees began. They were strange and gnarled, with only a bare covering of leaves. Anais couldn?t help thinking that they looked like something right out of a movie, liable to come alive and capture her with their branches. Those branches were tangled together, forming a thick canopy. She couldn?t tell how tall the trees were from this height, or what the ground looked like.

    Or whether there was ground down there and not a swamp filled with dangerous creatures just waiting to eat an unsuspecting mortal like her.

    The trees seemed endless too. They covered the valley floor, from the furthest point she could see off to her left, to the end of her vision off to her right.

    Anais realised something as she looked at the trees.

    The valley had no open ends.

    The black mountains rose to block it on all sides.

    If she was going to leave, she was going to have to ascend one of the peaks and hope that she chose the right one. If she chose wrong, she could be faced with another valley, or worse.

    Anais let thoughts of escape drift away.

    There was no way to escape.

    No need either.

    She knew Loke better now and she felt sure that he would keep his promise. He would take her back to the Third Realm. If he didn?t, she would try her luck with the mountains and the forest that looked as if it might try to eat her. Until then, she would trust that he was going to fulfil his vow to her.

    She stepped back from the ledge, determined to return to the fire before Loke found her gone.

    A sudden rush of air swept down the mountainside, pushing her forwards. She grabbed her hair as it covered her face, wrestling the tangled golden ribbons back so she could see where she was going and wouldn?t fall off the ledge. Another blast of wind came.

    Something clamped around her waist.

    Anais gasped and tried to turn, sure that it was Loke behind her.

    The black ground dropped away and she looked down instead, her eyes widening and a bolt of fear piercing her heart. Huge red scaly talons held her around her waist and legs, each thicker than her body. Glossy black claws pressed dangerously close to her skin and she did the only thing she could think of as her mind shut down and she realised with horror that it wasn?t Loke who had her.

    She screamed.

    The dragon bellowed in response to her shriek and shook her, rattling her right down to her bones and making her ache all over. She bit her tongue to stop herself from crying out and tried to prise the beast?s claws off her as her survival instincts kicked in. She would take a long drop to a swift death over being stolen by another dragon.

    Anais attacked as best she could, alternating between punching the dragon?s talons and trying to get her fingers under its scales. She was going to yank the damned things off and make it hurt. The dragon kept flying, enormous dark red leathery wings beating the air, carrying them higher above the mountains.

    The world beyond them came into view and Anais?s heart plummeted.

    Nothing but more mountains and valleys for hundreds of miles.

    If she had run away from Loke, she would have died out there. She never would have reached Sable and the others.

    She wasn?t going to reach them now either.

    She looked up at the huge red dragon that held her. The great beast kept its large golden eyes on the distance but opened its crocodilian jaw, revealing rows of deadly long white fangs as it roared again.

    An answering roar came this time.


    Anais looked back towards the cave but saw only the barbed tip of the red dragon?s tail. The valley was so far away already, too distant for her to make anything out, but not far enough for her not to realise with disappointment that Loke wasn?t coming after her.

    There was no blue dragon chasing them.

    Anais ignored how her heart stung and went back to hitting the dragon?s paw, using both of her fists this time. She didn?t let up until the dragon dropped lower in the air as they swept over another mountain range.

    Her hands fell to resting on the dragon?s talon as she stared down at the clearing below. Round stone huts filled most of the space, with what looked like an arena carved into the mountain beyond them and a large flat tract of land left open at the end of the village closest to her. Anais realised it was the dragon equivalent of a landing strip when the red beast holding her touched down there.

    The second it set her down and released her, she turned on it, launching punches against anything she could reach. Two bare-chested men rushed forwards from a broad path between the thatched black stone huts and grabbed hold of her, pulling her away from the dragon. She fought them too, wrestling against their hold, even when she knew it was futile. They were far too strong for her.

    The one to her left, a man with silver hair, muttered something in their language and his companion, a green-haired younger male, responded, a grin curving his lips and revealing sharp white teeth.

    She stared at the dragon as it began to transform, waiting for it to turn into a red-haired man.

    It was a woman.

    A very beautiful woman with flame red hair.

    Mahogany leather trousers formed over her legs and she twirled her hair up, tying it in a knot at the back of her head. Anais waited for another garment to appear over her ample breasts but nothing happened.

    A golden dragon circled lazily above them, bright against the dark sky, and snorted. The woman looked up at the beast, her expression souring, and motioned for the men to follow her.

    The men grunted and marched Anais into the village.

    The moment they were clear of the landing strip, the golden dragon touched down.

    She looked back at it and it stared right at her, its elliptical pupils stretching thin as it eyed her. It wasn?t as beautiful as Loke had been.

    Her captor stormed ahead of her and her guards, still topless. When they entered the main area of the village, Anais realised that it wasn?t just her captor who was flashing her upper body. Every female she could see wore only trousers.

    Every male she could see on the broad streets between the rows of huts stared at her, eyeing her in a way that made her skin crawl. She didn?t like how they looked at her. Fascinated. Awestruck. Hungry. When Loke looked at her that way, she found it appealing, but with these men, she only felt a deep need to flee.

    To escape.

    She had the feeling she had made a grave mistake by disobeying Loke and she was going to pay for it.

    The men halted, jerking her to a stop with them, and she looked ahead of her, towards a larger round building that stood on a high solid black stone platform at the other end of an open square.

    A golden-haired male lounged on an obsidian throne in front of the thatched hut, cragged mountains his grim backdrop. His large hands rested over the ornate ends of the arms of the throne and his deep bronze leathers stretched tight over long powerful legs that were spread, giving him a relaxed and easy-going appearance that his sharp golden gaze contradicted.

    This man knew everything that was happening around him without even needing to look to confirm it.

    Was he the dragon equivalent of a king?
