My Familiar Stranger by Victoria Danann

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?




The story starts out with Elora witnessing the massacre of her entire family. She is frozen in place by fear so her friend and tutor, Monq gets to her in time to save her. He open a portal to another dimension and pushes her in with the parting words "be happy". Her inter-dimension travel ends with her injured, unrecognizable as a human and at the feet of elites of the order of the Black Swan.....Storm (a human), Ram (an elf) and Kay (a berserker).  Storm, feeling that he needed to save whatever this was, he picked Elora up and carries her to the infirmary where she spends weeks recovering from the injuries she sustained. When she is healed, she was finally told what had happened, that she had been transported to another dimension parallel to her own, where things were both different and alike. 
She becomes a part of Storm, Ram and Kay's group, and other than Kay (who is engaged), the other two are determined to win her heart. Especially Ram who knows that she is his life mate, the only woman fate has chosen for him.

Let me just say I am (im)patiently awaiting the next installment. I loved this story. I loved how Ms. Danann didn't make this story into an instant love, it progressed over time. It was a wonderfully intriguing romance with it's own twist on the paranormal world and I loved every page.
