Edwina " I LoveBooks" "Deb"
I Am So Sorry to have to give Broken Dawn 3 stars. But this story is boring, moves slow and resembles other IG stories. It's repetitive at times. I didn't care for the whole dementia crazy villain storyline.

I just wish DD would restructure her Gifted One female mates. Instead of the majority of them being in mid to late 30's. Kayla is 38 I think Seth's wife is 40. What I call the over the Hill Gang. Why not get some young blood in there. Do something exciting and different. Send us another Ami
Nick has been in love with his neighbour, Kayla for years (4 or 6?). And she has had a crush on him, but she was just getting over a bad divorce when she moved next door to him. Then there's also the whole immortal blood sucker secret to keep on Nick's part.
So they secretly lusted after each other. She is 38 now and figures nothing will come of her crush over a man she thinks is several years younger.
All that changes when her life is in mortal danger and Nick realizes that he is being a coward

The story picks up after the events of Death of Darkness and while some threads connect, the story and romance will work as standalone. Although I can assure you from personal experience, you’ll be racing to grab the previous released books.

Divorcee Kayla Dorman and her daughter live next door to Nick and Oliver. Nick has crushed on her since they moved in and even with Kayla’s daughter away at college he hasn’t made a move. She thinks he is a security guard and hasn’t a clue Immortals, vampires
A Voracious Reader (a.k.a. Carol)
Book source ~ Purchased (also was a review request, but I forgot I had already pre-ordered it)

Nick Belanger has the hots for his next door neighbor, Kayla Dorman. He’d ask her out and hope she says yes, except he’s an Immortal Guardian and his life is all about killing vampires to protect the humans who are unaware of what goes bump in the night. Not only is he something she would find hard to believe, but she has a daughter he doesn’t want to put in danger. Well, he doesn’t want to put either o
There's only one way to describe this's the calm after the storm has passed.

It's not a bad book as the writing is as good as always...the story line just feels a little repetitive. Older woman with a kid starting college - I'm just saying Jenna and John - has a crush on the mysterious man in black.
Nick was a nice character - funny at times and cute. But just nice. Yeah, I know it's a death blow to a mans ego - being the nice guy. For me he was missing a certain depth and some hard ed

Yes!! So good!!

Dianne never disappoints! I loved this book! What a great way to give us something new but not stray from the formula we all have come to know and love!
It was fun to read about Houston, the city I've called home for over 30 years.
Nick and Kayla's story overlaps the last book so I know there are many more to come!! I can't wait to read the next one!!
Hurry Dianne!!! 😘

Wow another great book

Wow another great book it pulls you in you laugh you cry because it makes you feel as if you know these people like they could live next door. A must read for anyone who loves paranormal great books. Dianne is a writer that makes the book hard to put down ! Can't wait for more an can't wait for Eliana and Cliffs story. This series a must read you won't regret it this author my favorite she can write really awsome!!

Well, that was disappointing. Two books by this author in a row filled with insta love.


Sorry to say this book just didn’t work for me on so many levels. The biggest of which is insta love which I hate.

Living next door to someone for six years doesn’t automatically mean you know them even if you visually see them everyday. The fact that he had to ask what she liked on her pizza (even though he creepily knew from over hearing conversations) suggest they were little more than acquai

It's no secret that I am a fan of the Immortal Guardians series. I love everything about it. I love the brooding immortal characters and the sassy women. I love the world with the vampires as the enemies. I love the friendships and the bonds the guardians have.

I was nervous going into this book because it is the first one that isn't set in North Carolina and the group of immortal guardians there. But this book was fantastic. Nick is an immortal guardian in Texas. He has loved his neighbor for

Good addition to the series

This is a nice addition to the Immortal Guardian series. A book by this author is never a disappointment except they always end and I never want them to end! This has the blush of new romance between Nick and his neighbor even though they have lived next to each other for 6 years. It has the excitement of hunting vampires but it’s main angst is an old man who wants the secret of youth he believes Nick can provide. Fighting and near death experiences aside, it is a most

What a bummer of a book. 1.5 star (audible review)

Well this book was truly a struggle to get through. So disappointing. I am a huge fan of this series and this was the worst. There was nothing great or fantastic about this book at all. Nick and Kayla were just MEH.. Didn't really care to much about either one of them. I think that was probably due to the sex sex and sex, the thoughts of sex and some more sex. Then there is more sex.

I am not a prude by no means I like sex in my stories. However

I’m gonna keep this spoiler free but you know what the best part is? You can read this book if you have not read others, and it’s going to be completely okay. Start here if you want. That’s going to be okay but make sure you are ready to invest days in the other stories because it is going to be addictive, regardless of where you start. However, even though there isn't a spoiler for previous books or future books or anything in between. It is all necessary to keep the plot line of this book movi ...more

Broken Dawn is the 10th book in the Immortal Guardians series. This time around, we get a glimpse into a different part of the country and different Immortal Guardians, Nick and Eliana. Never fear, other beloved characters make several appearances. This one had less of an intrigue, battle feel to it. It's more about two people finding the loves of their lives. There is a little danger that adds to the story, but I didn't feel that was the main focus. I loved Nick and Kayla. They were just too cu ...more
A Paranormal Romance That Had Me Hooked.

I'm already a big fan of Dianne Duvall's books and have read all of them. Although Broken Dawn is book 10 in her Immortal Guardians series, it felt like a new beginning. I was drawn into this story and remained hooked throughout.

I love Dianne's writing style, the language she uses and the way she paces her plots. There's always a natural balance throughout the story between the mystery, fighting and violent scenes and the humorous, romantic and passionate

Dianne Duvall has done it again! I have throughly enjoyed each and every book that she has written and this one is no different. Whether it is the Immortal Guardians, The Gifted Ones or her new Aldebarian Alliance series, Dianne's books are exciting, humorous, and imaginative, with captivating characters and sizzling romance. I am forever waiting for the next spellbinding story the writes! Amazing read as always! Thank you Ms. Duvall!

I got this audible book first thing this morning. I was super excited to meet new characters outside of North Carolina. This was such a great book. Dianne really did such a great job of pulling the North Carolina crew in while keeping the Houston IGs and Network as their own story. I am so looking forward to more stories and learning about more Immortal Guardians' stories. Thank you Dianne for the wonderful world you have built for those of us who love to live within the pages of those stories. ...more

The world of the Immortal guardians grows

Long time fans know the North Carolina Immortal guardian crew well, but this time it's off to Texas. To meet Nick, he was an unnamed guardian in a previous book.

I really like his character. His shyness about sharing his gift with Kayla is sweet.

Fun story, fast read. Loved seeing so many characters from previous books, appear in this one.

Another wonderful IG romantic thriller! Love Nick! He's just the sweetest!!

If you've never read this series, this could be read on its own. It explains enough about the world and the characters without feeling you're missing too much. It definitely get you wanting more, weather it's starting the series with the first book or rereading from the beginning, ready and waiting for the next one!

It’s so great learning about more Immortal Guardians from a different city. And Eliana. ELIANA!! I can’t wait! That’s all I’m going to say about that. But Nick and Kayla! I can’t wait to see where all of this leads.

What a whirlwind of conflict and fundamental love!
Dianne Duvall does it again with her 10th book in the Immortal Guardians series. The many heartfelt moments sent my emotions in hyperdrive: laughing one moment, crying the next. The bantering and teasing fit perfectly throughout the storyline, I mean what more would you want out of a paranormal romance than this setting right here?

A love worth waiting for

This couple are just adorable. Neither knowing that the other cares for the other. It's like a schooltime crush. Lol. Nick is such a sweetheart. He waits and hopes from afar . And Kayla is like most women. Unsure of her own beauty because of her past. I love that she's ordinary and has a daughter. No killer body, no killer looks , just simple bust very beautiful to him.

“Every muscle in his body went rigid. Then he rolled toward her, not stopping until she was on her back and he loomed over her. He shoved a muscled thigh between hers, parting them and making room for himself. Then, his eyes as bright as the damned sun, he ducked his head and claimed her lips, devouring her and stoking the flames until she moaned and arched up against him.

YES. This was what she wanted, what she needed. It had been soooooo long since any man had touched her. And Nick wasn’t just any man. He was the one who frequented all of her illicit sexual fantasies.

She moaned a protest when his lips left hers and trailed kisses across her cheek to her ear. His warm breath sent more sensual shivers through her before he raised his head and stared down at her.”
“Dragging his lips from hers, he buried his face in her neck. His arms tightened around her almost to the point of pain.

Frowning, wanting those lips on hers again, she hugged him back. “Nick?”

“You scared the hell out of me today,” he murmured, his deep voice hoarse.

Her heart turned over. He would only have such a reaction if he cared about her. How had she not realized that before? “I’m sorry.”

He shook his head. “Just let me hold you a minute.”

Smiling, she snuggled against him.”
