Book Description:

He was left behind when Elora Laiken made her choice. Now he’s had it with love, but a transplanted witch who happens to be the world’s best tracker hopes she can change his mind.

The Witch’s Dream begins with B Team on temporary assignment to Black Swan headquarters in Edinburgh where they are supposed to fill in for stretched-thin resources and assist with a werewolf issue. They’ve been given permission to stop in Ireland for a few days and help celebrate a handfasting at the palace in Derry.

When they reach Edinburgh, the afterglow of an elftale wedding quickly turns all business. A missing person report turns into a demon abduction. A simple werewolf sanction becomes a diplomatic issue requiring the one thing Elora is no longer willing to give - finesse.

Erotic quotient: Some steamy scenes. No menage. No BDSM.


This book picks up where My Familiar Stranger left off. Some of this story takes place in Ireland and Edinburgh.

Deliverance is an incubus demon. He is on a mission of revenge. Sir Chaos Caelian, Kay to his co-workers, is a knight of the Black Swan. His fiancée’s name is Katrina. This is a great way to interconnect the characters in this tale.

Litha Brandywine also works with the Black Swan. She is a young woman that speaks her mind and isn’t afraid to be who she is. She also learns something about herself that she never knew. There is one knight that really sets her on fire and she isn’t afraid to go after what she wants. This is something that is great about Victoria’s series; the women appear to be strong in more ways than one.

Victoria also continues the story of Ram and Elora. Ram’s sister, Aelsong, also joins the team. You have to give an author a lot of credit when they can create a world that doesn’t exist plus a lot of characters that also exist in this world. And on top of that another dimension is added into the mix – it takes a lot of creativity.

Victoria also does a great job of building the anticipation of who will the next romantic pair will be. And on top of that includes an interesting twist. The reader also gets some background into one of the knights, Storm. It was a great read for book two and I can’t wait to see what Victoria has in store for her readers in book three. It’s a book that I didn’t want to put down until I was finished. (Reviewed by Lynn from Romance Reader Enthusiast)

Book Description:

A secret society, modern day knights, an accidental pilgrim from an alternate dimension, and a vampire like no other come together where chance intersects romance for a once-in-a-lifetime adventure 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.

Sovereign Sol Nemamiah is with his knights when something ends up in the room with them. One of his men Rammel Hawking was curious as to what they are seeing. Rammel’s fellow knight, Engel Storm, decided that once they take whatever ended up in their room to the infirmary he would wait and see how things work out. Victoria does a great job of blending the old and the modern to make this great tale.

Elora Laiken has traveled from an alternate dimension and ends up badly injured. Who would have ever thought that there is paranormal activity in New Jersey. I can see right away that Victoria has put a lot of work into creating this world. I also love that Victoria has named Elora’s tutor Thelonius Monq. If you like jazz, you may want to look up Thelonius Monk and learn about him and his music. It makes me wonder if Victoria is a fan of his.

The order of the Black Swan is here to protect humans from the unknown. Victoria could have told her readers at the beginning who they are but waits until Elora is told. This is a smart move because then the reader isn’t reading about the Black Swan twice. The world Victoria has created seems to be very complex but her scenes flow nicely from one to the next – you won’t get confused about what’s going on. One thing that makes this a real page turner is that Victoria doesn’t let the reader know who Elora’s love interest is going to be.

What I loved about this story was that there was plenty of tension but not a lot of emphasis on sex. It’s all about the Black Swan and where Elora fits into the group. Victoria does give her readers the sex that they may be looking for but it comes at the perfect point. She then leaves you wanting more. I’m looking forward to reading the second book in the series. It is one series that you will want to read in order.
