Dianne Duvall - Darkness Dawns - BOOK GIVEAWAY!


Dianne Duvall earned a bachelor’s degree in English from the University of St. Thomas, where she studied fiction writing, playwriting and poetry writing. Darkness Dawns, the first book in her Immortal Guardians paranormal romance series, was released on February 1, 2011, courtesy of Kensington (Zebra Imprint). It has received many 5-star reviews and was deemed a Top Pick by The Romance Reviews and a Best Book by Long and Short Reviews. Darkness Dawns also won first place in the 2009 Indiana Golden Opportunity contest, then was chosen as the Best of the Best. Night Reigns, the second book in the series, is scheduled to be released on December 6, 2011.

Once, Sarah Bingham’s biggest challenge was making her students pay attention in class. Now, after rescuing a wounded stranger, she’s landed in the middle of a battle between corrupt vampires and powerful immortals who also need blood to survive. Roland Warbrook is the most compelling man Sarah has ever laid hands on. But his desire for her is mingled with a hunger he can barely control . . .

In his nine centuries of immortal existence, no woman has tempted Roland as much as Sarah. But asking her to love him is impossible -- when it mean forfeiting the world she’s always known, and the life he would do anything to protect.

One very lucky person will win a paperback copy of Darkness Dawns!

    Unknown: Glad I’ve intrigued you! I knew historians believe much of the vampire mythology arose from misunderstanding certain illnesses, so I thought it would be interesting to make a rare virus the cause of vampirism. The immortals’ advanced DNA then gave me a method of discerning good from bad AND of making the vampires both villains and tragic victims. :-) Good luck with the contest!

    Yami Neko: Thanks! I hope you’ll like it! Good luck with the contest!

  29. D. L. Cocchio: I get inspiration from everything. :-) For example, the idea of making vampirism a result of a rare virus arose from something I saw on the History Channel. Some historians were saying they believed the vampire mythology resulted from a misunderstanding of illnesses like porphyria. My imagination is always firing, so I never know what will spark an idea. :-) Good luck with the contest!
