Luna had jumped in to organize and make sure that everyone had a place to sleep. In all the excitement, it didn’t escape Stalkson Grey’s notice that she was exceptionally anxious. She jumped when he approached silently from behind and encircled her in his arms.
“What troubles you, mate?” he said.
“What makes you think I’m troubled?”
He gave her a little squeeze. “Don’t play your games of female wiles. I know every one of your moods.” He kissed the top of her head. “And your expressions.” He kissed the top of her shoulder. “And your tone of voice.” When he nuzzled into her neck, she let out a little squeal followed by a giggle. “So tell me now. I know other places that reap more than…”
“Alright!” she said and squirmed until she turned around in his arms and faced his breast bone. “I didn’t have a chance to get to know the others. We met and,” she glanced up for a second, “fell in love. Then we moved here right away. What if they don’t like me?”
Stalkson Grey’s chest rumbled as he barked out a laugh. “Not like you? Then we’ll have to build a new facility to house the insane.”
“I’m serious.”
“As am I. Everyone loves you, Luna. Perhaps they were standoffish in the beginning, but that didn’t last long. Right?”
“Right.”
“So don’t worry. You’re alpha’s mate, the most powerful female in all the land.”
She smirked. “You mean except for the other alpha’s mates.”
“When I say the land, I mean our land.”
“I see.”
He ducked down to look her in the eyes. “I hope you do. No worries.” 
“Okay.”
“No worries?”
She rolled her eyes. “No worries.”
“What I like to hear.” He looked around the clinic. “There’s nobody here. You want to play healer and…”
She laughed and slapped at him. “Get out of here. I’m trying to get ready for a population explosion.”
He sighed. “The burden of leadership.”
“Don’t make fun of me. You’re not the only one with responsibilities.”
“No fun intended. Promise.”
“Ha.”
He smacked her on the derriere playfully. “I was commiserating.”
“You were being an ass.”
He smiled wolfishly. “You mean I was being an ass man.”
She pointed to the door. “Out. I have work to do.” He pouted and gave her puppy dog eyes that almost made her relent. “Here’s the deal. You go peaceably now and tonight I’ll put on the red lace teddy you like so much…”
“Okay. Going.”
“Later.”
“Count on it,” he growled as he cleared the door.

Willem Released Today!

WILLEM teaser 2

You won’t want to miss the launch of my new series, The Witches of Wimberley. It’s ripe and ready. Grab your copy now!

BuyButton_AmazonBuyButton_AppleBuyButton_B&Nkobo

 

“Enchanted from the very first page. I couldn’t put it down!” – Night Owl Reviews 5* TOP PICK

“I wish I could give it more than 5 stars!” – Romance Authors That Rock

“It’s always fun when you silently talk to the book.” – Nook Books and More

“Bright. Fun. Happy.” – Read to Live, Live to Read

 

Willem is an out of work actor. He gave himself ten years to make it and never got a single paying job. While waiting for what would probably be his last audition ever, the guy standing behind him in line gave him a card with a phone number and said, “If you’re definitely quitting, try the witches.”

He took the card for the sake of being polite and planned to throw it away, but didn’t He called the number, entered the annual competition to win a witch, and won. To his amazement, he got everything he’d ever wanted from life. There’s only one problem. Willem can’t accept what’s being offered because he doesn’t believe in love.

 

What early readers say:

“So entranced I almost missed my subway stop.”

“Now, I need to know is Wimberley real?”

“…just what I expected from the ‘Witchy Woman’ herself.”

“Now I’m seriously craving sweet tea!”

“Had me sitting on the edge of my seat.”

‘Characters so memorable I fully expect to run across them.”

“excited, happy, laughing, in awe, happy ..madder than a wet hen! Shed a few tears., back to being happy again.”

“Damn you Victoria you made me cry again.”

WILLEM, coming June 24

FB home and page

 

WILLEM SECOND EXCERPT:

“Lyra, this is Willem.”

“Oh, yes. Willem. Are you having fun?”

“I, ah, yes. I just got here.”

“Have you had something to eat? We wouldn’t want you to be hungry and there’s so much food!”

“I’ll never forget the food.”

She barked out a laugh. “You hope!”

It took me a second to catch up and remember about the memory wipe thing.

“Well, yeah, I guess I do hope I remember.”

Her grin resolved into a smile. “So tell me what you’re going to do with your life if you win, Willem.”

“You know, that still sounds like one of those what-would-you-do-if-you-got-a-million-dollars questions. It feels too unreal to take seriously.”

She nodded. “A good solid honest answer. I like that.” After studying me for a few seconds, she said, “Okay. You passed my test. Let me introduce you to Lilith.”

She turned me around when she took my arm and, as she did, I happened to catch a heated look exchanged between Harmony and Raider. It was an, “Ah hah,” moment immediately followed by an, “Oh, crap,” moment when I realized that, if I won Harmony’s sister, Raider would be my brother-in-law. I understood why he was happy enough to star in the Orientation video and babysit inexperienced canoers on the river. She was a catch and he knew it.

I decided there are worse things than being in Raider’s family. He didn’t actually finish drowning me in the river, but at the time it felt like he was trying. On the other hand, he insisted on showing me to the ballroom. And he called me ‘hero’. Who couldn’t get used to that?

I was ushered from one beautiful woman to the next and each took measure of me in her own way. It was an interview, or audition, but it was the most pleasant I’d ever experienced. Or ever would, I was sure.

Still, after an hour or so, I was getting hungry. When Bless tried to walk me to another chat, I balked.

“Hey, could you maybe give me a couple of minutes to partake of some of the amazing feast stations? I haven’t eaten and that guy in the other part of the house carving that prime rib really spoke to me.”

Bless had a laugh that didn’t exactly sound like tinkling bells, but reminded me of them just the same. “Certainly, Willem. Would you like me to accompany you?”

“That would be…” I happened to look away and notice that most of the conversational groups in the room consisted of clusters of contestants, not a witch in sight. I realized that’s what I’d been seeing the whole time whenever I looked away from the woman I was talking with. “Bless, I hope this isn’t an inappropriate question, but am I getting special treatment?”

Bless treated me to an extra big helping of her tinkling bells laugh. “Willem, you’re quite perceptive. And you’ve passed my test.”

“You know, you’re the sixth or seventh person to say that to me. Is this a gauntlet of gorgeous women in sexy red dresses?”

Again the laugh. “I love that description. You’re quite a character, Willem. You would fit in around here.” As she smiled at me, she grabbed the elbow of another beauty passing by. “Glory, this is Willem.”

When Glory smiled, I knew how she was named. “Hi, Willem.”

“He’s hungry and headed in the direction of prime rib.”

“Of course he is. I don’t see a man like this eating watercress.”

“Yes, well, perhaps you’d like to accompany him while he dines.”

Glory seemed as ecstatic as if she’d won the prize herself. “Of course! Willem. I’d be honored.”

She slipped her arm in mind and walked me to the prime rib. “What would you like with that?” she asked. “While Raleigh is slicing your rib just the way you want it, I’ll gather up something to go with.”

“You sure?”

“Idle hands are the devil’s workshop.”

“Okay, then. Caesar salad. And did I see au gratin potatoes?” She nodded. “That should do.”

She pointed to a table at the rear of the room. “I’ll meet you right there.”

She was there with salad and spuds before I arrived with a hunk of prime rib that smelled so good it was all I could do to not face plant into the plate and tear into it with my teeth. Somehow I managed to preserve enough dignity to sit and take a few bites of salad before digging into my current reason for living with fork and knife.

Out of nowhere a waiter appeared on my right pouring red wine into my glass. That was followed with a delivery of ice water seconds later.

“You’ve eaten?” I asked Glory, who sat smiling with her legs crossed as if there’s nothing in the universe she’d rather be doing than watching me eat.

“Much earlier.”

Someone appeared with a mint garnished drink that I hadn’t heard Glory order.

“I’ve decided that Wimberley must have the best service in the world. I’m certain the queen of England is envious.”

She smiled. “Don’t you know you get what you pay for, Willem?”

“So I’ve heard. I’m just a middle class boy from Alabama so I wouldn’t have much personal experience in that department.”

“You don’t strike me as someone who thinks of Golden Bull Buffet as a special occasion.”

“I had some nice times courtesy of my agent.”

“Your agent? Oh, that’s right. You were an actor.”

“How is it that everyone seems to know me by name? And, obviously, some know more than just my name. Have you memorized bios on all fifty contestants? And come to think of it, why did you say ‘were an actor’?”

“First, yes. We look over incoming guests. Second, some of us just learn names, some of us read more and have good recall. Third, you told our people in L.A. that you’re done with acting. That puts it in the past tense, right?”

“Right. So, should I be asking questions about you?”

She grinned. “You’re funny, Willem.”

“Why’s that?”

“Because you have been asking questions.”

Hearing her say it out loud, I realized that was true.

“This prime rib is indescribable. And the wine, he didn’t ask me for a preference, but I’ve gotta tell you. It’s amazing.”

“If you win, you’ll eat whatever you want when you want it. As far as the staff goes, they’re very skilled at reading people and anticipating needs.”

“Or desires.”

“You’re quick, Willem. I like that. And you’ve passed my test.”

    I love these books and think they’d make phenomenal movies! Any chance of that???

      If Hollywood comes calling and promises not to do to my books what HBO did to Sookie Stackhouse, then yes. Thank you for the compliment! 😀

    Ms. Dannan,

    I have a nook and I see that Journey Man is only being offered at Amazon, which supports Kindle. Will you be releasing this book to Barnes and Nobles for those of us using a NOOK?

    Also just curious can I get paperbacks of the Black Swan Series?

    • vdanann June 6, 2016 at 7:58 am - Reply

      Hi Janet –

      1.) Journey Man will be available on NOOK July 13th.

      2.) You can get paperbacks of all my books through Amazon. When you go to the title, you will see there are two editions, one is the ebook, the other is the print version.

      Thank you for asking,
      my best.

    I am wondering where The Witches of Wimberly books are being sold? They do not come up on amazon.com, which is where I purchase the majority of my books. I also have Kobo. Please help, I LOVE your books, and do not want to miss any!

    So, what actually happens to Stalkson Grey? In Moonlight, he appears to get his HEA, but I cannot find if/when anyone returned to take him to the new lands. Has he been trapped in the wrong dimension all this time, or am I looking for answers in the wrong places? I have read the first 5 in the Black Swan Knights and am starting book 6.

      Hi Marsha –

      Here is a follow up interview with Stalkson Grey that was published on October 31, 2013.
      ALSO, he figures prominently in the New Scotia Pack series. Happy Reading! 😀

      An Interview with Stalkson Grey

      Victoria: First, thank you for agreeing to the interview. I know this is not your favorite sort of thing. Let me take just a moment to make sure your readers are on the same page, so to speak.

      Stalkson Grey, is a werewolf who first appeared in The Order of the Black Swan serial saga in Book Two, The Witch’s Dream. His character, as king of the Elk Mountain, Idaho werewolf tribe, was arrogant and more or less insufferable.

      Grey: Now just a minute!

      Victoria: He turns up again in Book Four, Moonlight, and gives a rousing performance as my somewhat loosely associated version of Red Riding Hood’s big bad wolf.

      Now then. Grey, I understand congratulations are in order. The elders named you king of the new northern werewolf colony in Lunark dimension.

      Grey: (He nodded.)

      Victoria: Forgive me for being blunt, but I thought you didn’t want to be king, too much responsibility and all that.

      Grey: I didn’t. I don’t. It just turns out that I hate being told what to do more than I hate having the responsibility for everybody’s welfare.

      Victoria: I see. So how is it going? I see you’re looking rather casual.

      Grey: (Glanced down at his pants. He was shirtless and wearing the same soft doeskin pants that Deliverance favored.) Yes. (Smiled.) We don’t have many functions that require waistcoats.

      Victoria: Waistcoats. No. I suppose not. Those pants look a lot like what Deliverance wears. And didn’t I hear that you named the new colony Deliverance?

      Grey: Yes.

      Victoria: Yes? Just yes?

      Grey: The demon hooked me up with the pants. The new colony is named Deliverance.

      Victoria: Okay. Shall we assume the colony was named for the demon?

      Grey: Assume whatever you like.

      Victoria: Come on. Work with me a little here.

      Grey: All right. I named it Deliverance partly because the demon brought us here, partly because we were delivered from years of worry and misconception about extinction of our species, partly because of the reality of being delivered from the cancerous, avaricious behavior of the humans, and partly because the migration was my delivery into a new life. Like being born again.

      Victoria: (It took me a minute to absorb all that.) Wow.

      Grey: (He rolled one shoulder in a graceful, athletic shrug.)

      Victoria: So how’s Luna? It can’t be easy to be a new wife and adjust to life on a frontier at the same time.

      Grey: (He blinded me with a boyish grin that made him look like he was in his early twenties.) Happy. Pregnant. With twins! (He chuckled.) She tells everybody that Lunark Dimension was named after her. She’s well-liked by the other human mates and her skills as healer, well, we needed them. She’s teaching the others.

      Victoria: (I couldn’t help but smile at that.) That’s nice, Grey. I’m glad it’s working out for both of you. When are the babies due?

      Grey: Mid-winter. We’ll make it work.

      Victoria: Do you want girls or boys?

      Grey: (He grinned again.) Girls.

    are your books ever going to be available as audiobooks. i’d love to hear the series.

    • vdanann August 7, 2016 at 8:50 am - Reply

      HI Lisa –

      I would love to produce the books as audiobooks, but am never happy with the way they are read. I’m going to attempt to do it myself, but there’s a push/pull between spending my time doing that as opposed to writing new stories. Stay tuned. Maybe in 2017. And thank you for asking and letting me know there’s interest.

    When will the next book in the series The Witches of Wimberley come out. I loved Willem it was so good I can’t wait to read the next.

    • vdanann August 22, 2016 at 6:29 pm - Reply

      Hi Dedra –

      I’m so glad you enjoyed Willem. The next witches books will be out in summer of 2017. Thanks for letting me know you want more from the series. 😀
