Top 5 Reasons to Love Eliana from The Segonian

Hello! Thanks so much for joining us. I’m very happy to be here, celebrating the release of THE SEGONIAN, the second stand-alone novel in my exciting new Aldebarian Alliance series. If you enjoy sci-fi romance with strong heroes and kick-ass heroines, lovable secondary characters, and lots of action, passion, humor, and happily-ever-afters, then I hope you’ll pick up a copy of Eliana and Dagon’s story.   Today I thought I would help you get to know Eliana (the heroine) by revealing five reasons Dagon falls in love with her:  

1

She’s brave.

  “Shields at fifty-four percent,” the computer announced in the same pleasant female voice.  

Eliana sped through the corridors, helping every man and woman she came across get to an escape pod. As she did, she noted crewmembers hustling to put out a fire.  

This can’t be happening.  

She passed some of her fellow immortals as they too worked their asses off to get as many people as they could into pods. As the number of Lasarans she came across began to dwindle, Eliana detoured toward Engine Room 1.  

“What the drek are you doing?” someone shouted behind her.  

“Shields at thirty-two percent,” the calm computer voice announced.  

Eliana turned to find Ganix running toward her. “All of my people are in the pods!” she yelled over the noise  

Boom. Boom. Boom.  

“Why aren’t you with them?” he shouted.  

“They’re safe! I want to help! What can I do?”  

“Shields at twenty percent,” the calm female voice announced.  

“Nothing!” Ganix shouted. “Get to a pod!”  

“I can help!” she insisted. “Just tell me what to do!” Whatever they needed, she could do a hell of a lot faster than they could.  

2

She kicks ass.

Maarev winked. “I say we let them dock then hurl Eliana at them and let her kill them all while the rest of us sit back, relax, and eat what’s left of the jarumi nuggets.”  

She laughed. “No way, buddy. Those jarumi nuggets are mine.”  

The big warrior chuckled. “I notice you didn’t object to the killing part.”  

“Because jarumi nuggets mean more to me than Gathendiens.”  

3

She’s passionate.

Everything within him went still. “Segonian courtship rituals?” he repeated softly. “Why would you wish to know more about that?”  

She sighed. “Because I couldn’t find anything about it in your informational databases, and I’ve been wanting to do this for a long time.” Reaching up, she rested her small hands on his stubbled cheeks, then rose onto her toes and drew him down for a kiss.  

His heart stuttered to a halt, then began to slam against his ribs. The first gentle brush of her lips hit him like an electrical current. His breath caught. Hers did, too. She drew back a fraction to stare up at him with wide eyes that acquired an amber glow.  

Then Dagon slid his arms around her and locked her against him. Dipping his head, he claimed her lips with greater urgency, letting her feel the heat that had been flaying him inside ever since she had walked onto his bridge, fully recovered from her wounds, and drawn him into a hug.  

4

She is fiercely loyal to those she cares about.

She lowered the blade an inch, bringing it close enough that his lashes brushed it when he blinked. “I’m the one who stopped you. And I’ll stop you again if you even try to harm us with senshi or any other crap in your telepathic arsenal. You don’t know me and may not fear me, but you should. You do not want to make an enemy of me. These men are my friends. I care about them. If you so much as give them a mild headache I will inflict pain upon you like you have never experienced before.”   

5

She has a great sense of humor and loves to tease.

 “Helmets up,” Dagon commanded.  

Every man present donned a helmet then touched the side of it. A clear window slid down in front, forming a bubble that covered their faces. Hisses sounded as the visors locked with the rest of the helmet.  

Dagon met Eliana’s gaze. “You, too. We know the Gathendiens aren’t going to execute a fair trade. We don’t know why they changed their tactics, but they are still hunting you.” He touched her back. “I don’t want you to be harmed by tengonis or any other gasses they may hurl at us.”  

“Okay,” she replied somberly. “But I don’t think any gas they hurl at me could be more noxious than Maarev’s after he eats mamitwa.”  

The men all laughed.

ABOUT THE BOOK

The Segonian Book #2 Aldebarian Alliance By Dianne Duvall Releasing date: January 19, 2021 Eliana’s life has never been what one might term ordinary. At least, it hasn’t been for a very long time. As a powerful Immortal Guardian, she spends her nights hunting and slaying psychotic vampires that most of humanity doesn’t even realize exist. Then an opportunity arises that instantly makes her extraordinary existence seem downright boring. The leader of the Immortal Guardians asks her to guard a group of mortals who are embarking upon a voyage across the galaxy to the planet Lasaran. How could she possibly say no? In no time at all, Eliana is hurtling through space on board a Lasaran battleship and getting to know not one but two alien races. It’s the most exciting adventure of her long life… until the ship is unexpectedly attacked. Amid the chaos and destruction that follow, she valiantly helps everyone she can before an explosion renders her unconscious. When Eliana awakens, she finds herself alone, floating in space, clad only in a spacesuit, with no ship in sight. Alone—that is—except for the warm, deep voice that carries over the comm in her helmet. Commander Dagon and the crew of the Segonian battleship Ranasura respond to a distress call from their Lasaran allies and join a massive Alliance-wide search-and-rescue mission. He quickly achieves communication with a lone Earthling female and races toward her. Every time they speak, his fascination with her grows and he becomes more desperate to reach her before her oxygen supply runs out. Her strength, bravery, and humor entice him, even more so when she defies all odds and they meet in person. As he and Eliana embark upon a quest to find her missing friends, a bond swiftly grows between them that deepens with every laugh and smile and tender touch they share. But they are not the only ones searching for Earthling survivors. When Eliana herself becomes the hunted and their enemies begin to close in, can the two of them fight their way to victory, or will their enemies take everything?
