My Familiar Stranger

The Order of the Black Swan, #1

Elora Laiken is an enigma. After falling through a previously unknown portal from another dimension, torn and bloodied and a complete mess, few were sure she would survive. But survive she does, and wakes to find herself in a parallel world eerily similar to her own, but with a treasure she never could have imagined. She arrives as a prisoner, an unknown and greatly misunderstood creature, cared for by the notorious Bad Company, B Team of the Order of the Black Swans. Ram, Storm, Kay, and Sol are back at base, recovering from the loss of a team member, when Elora arrives and proves herself an invaluable team member. Several weeks pass, but when an outbreak of vampires in New York City has B Team scrambling to uncover the reason and method to stop them, Elora is right there with them. Little do they know a saboteur is waiting to destroy everything the team, as well as Elora and Ram, have built. When the saboteur strikes, can Elora and Ram solve the mysteries, save the team, and learn to recognize the love in their hearts while not tearing the team apart? Dig in and find out.

My Familiar Stranger is a very complex book that is beautiful and heartwarming. There are numerous laugh out loud moments, as well as several nail biting edge of your seat moments. The adventure quotient is high, but not too much so. The romance in the novel is built in seamlessly, exquisitely enhancing the story. I absolutely loved this novel, and cannot wait for the next one!

Book Blurb for My Familiar Stranger

A Secret Society. Hot Guys. Vampires.

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

Of course a girl could suffer worse problems than having gorgeous guys in love with her. Perhaps more importantly, in the midst of an epidemic of vampire related abductions, can she stay alive long enough to choose between the devotion of the noble and stalwart knight who has saved her life twice, the charm and sexual magnetism of the fun loving elf who wants to claim her as his mate, or the passion of the intensely seductive, six-hundred-year-old vampire?

My Familiar Stranger is a full length, stand alone, Paranormal Romance novel that also sets up the foundation for the series. It will appeal to lovers of paranormal romance, fantasy, urban fantasy, and paranormal mystery.
