Release day: Phantom Shadows
Today is the official release of Phantom Shadows by Dianne Duvall (paperback and ebook, Kensington). Here’s the blurb:
Dr Melanie Lipton is no stranger to the supernatural. She knows immortals better than they know themselves, right down to their stubborn little genes. So although a handsome rogue immortal seems suspicious to her colleagues, Sebastien Newcombe intrigues Melanie. His history is checkered, his scars are impressive, and his ideas are daring. But it’s not his ideas that have Melanie fighting off surges of desire. . .Bastien is used to being the bad guy. In fact, he can’t remember the last time he had an ally he could trust. But Melanie is different–and under her calm, professional exterior he senses a passion beyond anything in his centuries of experience. Giving in to temptation is out of the question–he can’t put her in danger. But she isn’t asking him. . .
Dianne dropped by today to tell us about this book:
Sebastien Newcombe was quite the villain when he burst onto the scene in my series, raising an army of psychotic vampires to bring about the destruction of the Immortal Guardians. His actions earned him the hatred of immortals, vampires, and humans alike. So, of course, I couldn’t resist the challenge of trying to redeem him. What would happen, I wondered, if – among those clamoring for his execution – a single voice lent him support? What changes would be wrought by a woman who saw in Bastien what others couldn’t? Could he become a hero? Find out in Phantom Shadows, the third book in what RT Book Reviews calls my ‘excellent Immortal Guardians series’.
