Blurb : 

Minutes ahead of inevitable assassination, Elora Laiken is forcibly transported to an alternate dimension similar, but not identical, to her own. She is stranded. Alone. Far from home. A stranger in a "strangish" land.

Of course a girl could suffer worse problems than having gorgeous suitors. Perhaps more importantly, in the midst of an epidemic of vampire related abductions, can she stay alive long enough to choose between an honor debt, true love, or the breathlessness of single-minded passion?

My Familiar Stranger is a full length, stand alone, Paranormal Romance novel that also sets up the foundation for the Black Swan series. It is loved by fans of paranormal romance, fantasy romance, and urban fantasy.

Erotica quotient: A few steamy scenes. No menage. No BDSM.

About the Author:

For the past thirteen years, Victoria has illustrated and authored Seasons of the Witch calendars and planners.
Though works of fiction are a departure for her, she has had this series simmering on the back burner of her mind for years. In addition to authoring and illustrating Seasons of the Witch, she plays rock music and manages one of Houston's premier R&B/Variety/Pop bands.

This series will include some of my actual experience in the paranormal with fictionalized anecdotes from my journals during the years when I was a practicing "metaphysician", but most of the material is fantasy.

Book Review:

            Firstly, while this may be the author’s first foray into fiction, PLEASE don’t let it be her last.  Wow, is she good!  This book is amazing.  Love the story, love the concept, can’t wait for number 2.  If I could write like this I would never do anything else… unfortunately I have no talent that direction.

            Fabulous romance, with a paranormal twist.  There is one line something being a stranger is a strange land, and that totally reminded me of the movie “Fiddler on the Roof” where Tevye totally misquotes the Bible using the line, “I am a stranger in a strange land.”  So I made a connection with a favorite movie before I ever started reading.  They are nothing alike, but I loved the idea of feeling misplaced and not where you belong that I could relate to.

            I gave this book 4 out of 5 clouds.
