Broken Dawn- Dianne Duvall Author Q&A
ABOUT THE BOOK
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?

Thank you so much for stopping by and giving us some new information about Broken Dawn and The Immortal Guardians world! I’m so excited that we are getting this exciting new book from you so close to The Lasaran!
Thank you for letting me visit and for helping me celebrate the big release!
1. What can you tell us about Nick? What is his country of origin? How old is he? Have we met him in passing before?
Nick’s family was among the first French settlers in Canada approximately four centuries ago. Though Nick has lived in my imagination for quite some time now, fans of the series don’t know him, so new readers or listeners will not be lost at all if they pick up BROKEN DAWN. Nick is actually the Immortal Guardian who replaced Marcus in Houston when Marcus transferred to North Carolina a decade or so ago. (I’ve always wondered about him.) He was also in one of the unnamed immortals who provided some much-needed backup in DEATH OF DARKNESS.
2. Kayla is a single mother, how old is her daughter?
Kayla is indeed a single mother. Her daughter Becca is eighteen and is just starting college. Coincidentally, she’s studying in North Carolina. But she does return home for a time in the book. :-)
3. Will there be a home where immortals gather like that of David’s in Texas? Will this allow us to learn about other members of the Texas-based Immortal Guardians?
There isn’t a home like David’s mentioned in this one, but you WILL see other Immortal Guardians . . . including one that fans of my new Aldebarian Alliance will particularly enjoy: Eliana. Eliana is Nick’s hunting partner in BROKEN DAWN. I thought you’d all enjoy seeing what her life was like before her big transfer. ;-) And I think readers and listeners will like her rather unique approach to hunting psychotic vampires. It’s one fans of the series haven’t seen yet.
4. There are many stories that fans would love to hear about; Chris Reordon, Cliff, Alec and Linda, and I’m sure even more... While it is implied that things we don’t see are happening off the page, will we get those stories?
A lot of fans have been asking for Chris to get his own book. His story is definitely one I want to tell. Alec and Linda’s tale is another highly requested one. It has been playing out in my imagination ever since I wrote SHADOWS STRIKE. Alec is the first shy immortal I’ve introduced, so I think fans would enjoy their story. I’m hoping to write that one soon. And Cliff . . .
I love that so many fans of the series are rooting for Cliff. I had no idea when I introduced his character that he would make such an impact. I’m thinking Cliff will feature prominently in the Immortal Guardians book I release after BROKEN DAWN.
5. Finally, someone asked me to ask this; do you plan to do any in person appearances?
I don’t have any planned for this year but am hoping to get out there and meet some of the awesome reader friends I’ve made online in the future.
Thank you so much for stopping in and sharing with us!
Thanks for the great interview! I hope you and your readers will enjoy Nick and Kayla’s story!
