 Welcome to The Wormhole and my first day on the tour.
It is my pleasure to feature Victoria Danann and the first
book in her series The Order of the Black Swan.

My Familiar Stranger
By Victoria Danann
The Order of the Black Swan
Book One

Genre: Paranormal Romance
Number of pages: 360

Book Description:

Thirteen times on Amazon Best Seller List in Fantasy Romance.

A secret society, modern day knights, and vampires come together for a once in a lifetime adventure and a once in a lifetime opportunity proving that true love can find you in the strangest places, even far, far from home.

Minutes ahead of inevitable assassination, Elora Laiken is forcibly transported to an alternate dimension similar, but not identical, to her own.

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.

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

About the Author : 
For the past fourteen years, Victoria has illustrated and authored Seasons of the Witch calendars and planners for 7th-House.com.

Though works of fiction are a departure for me, I have had this series simmering on the back burner of her mind for years. In addition to authoring and illustrating Seasons of the Witch, I play rock music and manage 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.
  

My thoughts:
Wow!  Fantastic! The writing is excellent.  The word choice, superb.  I fell in love with the vocabulary, it was so fun to roll around in the words that I didn't realize the pages were turning.  The characters are wonderfully created and the world is interesting and clever.  The story is nicely paced, intriguing, and original.  This book was a true pleasure to read.
