The Lasaran by Dianne Duvall 💕 Fun Facts, Book Tour & Prize Pack Giveaway 💕 (Paranormal Romance)

New York Times bestselling author Dianne Duvall brings readers the first novel in a thrilling new sci-fi romance series full of action, intrigue, humor, and happily-ever-afters.

Taelon searches the galaxy for his younger sister, who mysteriously disappeared while on a diplomatic mission. When an ally reveals that she was seized and is being held prisoner on Earth, Taelon descends upon the blue planet, intent on freeing her and exacting vengeance. However, all does not go as planned. Before he can find her, Taelon is captured and becomes the subject of torturous experiments. For what feels like an eternity, all he knows is pain and fury… until a mind tentatively touches his own and a woman’s voice forever changes his world.

After suffering tragic losses, Lisa is finally beginning to carve out a future for herself when chance sends her to the Anomalous Cognition Research Institute. What at first appears to be a benign organization seeking participants for a psychic study instead turns out to be a government facility harboring a much darker intent. Lisa discovers this too late and soon becomes the unwilling subject of a terrifying experiment. Just as fear and desperation threaten to consume her, a deep, compelling voice penetrates the looming insanity and lends her hope.

Having seen only the worst of humanity, Taelon is shocked when Lisa risks everything to free him. Together the two make their escape, and Taelon finds himself fascinated by the small human woman who—despite all she’s suffered—can still laugh and tease and lure smiles from him. Friendship swiftly grows between them as they work together to evade soldiers intent on capturing them and find themselves hunted by mystifying preternatural beings. Through it all, Lisa steadfastly remains by his side, stealing more of his heart each day while she helps him unravel the mystery of his sister’s fate. Can they find his sister before the hunters find them? If they survive their quest, will Taelon have to bid Lisa farewell… or can he coax her into leaving her planet and joining him for the adventure of a lifetime?

Hello! Thank you for joining us in celebrating the release of THE LASARAN, Aldebarian Alliance Book 1. I’m very excited to bring you this new series. I love science fiction as much as I love paranormal romance, so I had a LOT of fun combining the two in Taelon and Lisa’s story. It’s one I’ve wanted to tell for quite some time now as it has been sparking many scenes full of action, passion, humor, and romance in my imagination. So today I thought I would share with you:

5 Fun Facts About The Lasaran

The Aldebarian Alliance series is loosely tied to my Immortal Guardians series. But if you’re new to my work, don’t worry. You don’t have to read the IG books to enjoy THE LASARAN.

Here’s a fun fact that will likely surprise Immortal Guardians fans: A pivotal scene from THE LASARAN actually came to me BEFORE I began writing my Immortal Guardians series. That scene intrigued me so much that my muse kept circling back to it, wanting to know more until Taelon and Lisa insisted I absolutely had to tell their story now. :-)

The scene that came to me was actually based on a dream I had. I can’t tell you which scene it was (I’ll probably tell my book group after the release) because I don’t want to spoil it. But the dream was so unlike the dreams I usually have that I actually hoped it would pick up where it left off if I hurried up and went back to sleep.

I delved into all kinds of research while writing THE LASARAN, which ultimately revived my love of astronomy. I’ve spent more time exploring maps of the Milky Way Galaxy and stargazing in the past few months than I have in years and thoroughly enjoyed it. I even found a fun app called Star Walk 2 that helps you identify fun sights in the night sky and tips you off to meteor showers and the like.

Choosing character names for this book was the complete opposite of what I usually experience. With the books in my medieval and time-travel romance series The Gifted Ones, I had to research names that were common in twelfth century England to ensure accuracy. My Immortal Guardians series includes immortals who hail from multiple countries in a wide variety of time periods. Some are British. Some are French, Russian, Egyptian, Australian, Celtic, etc. Some are hundreds of years old. Some are thousands of years old. And for each character, I carefully researched what names were common in the country and century of his or her birth so the names would sound natural and authentic. But for THE LASARAN, I pretty much had to do the opposite. I had to come up with names that DIDN’T sound like they would fit right in here on Earth. It was both challenging and fun. ☺

I hope you’ll enjoy Taelon and Lisa’s story!
