THE STRANGELING, a fantasy romance novella, has been out of print but is now available as an ebook from eXcessica publishing. Here's the summary:
In an ancient, magical world Maerose of Riversbend is a valuable prize. A young and gifted maiden, she senses that the dark night of Samhain—five moons away—will bring untold change. As that fateful night approaches she is first kidnapped by a stranger, then rescued by a mysterious elder who keeps her bound and tethered, as if she is his and his alone.
Locked in their battle for supremacy, Maerose discovers that she is the physical key capable of undoing a hundred-year-old curse that threatens their land. It is through her dormant sensual power that they can drive back the evil spirits about to rise from the dead. Seduction and magic surround her, and she must mate with a man of faith on the dark night of Samhain at the very gates of the underworld. Willing submission to her destined lover will unleash her power, but who will be the one to win her heart—Bron, or Veldor?

"Fantasy fiction fans who also love a steamy romance will flock to The Strangeling, an erotically charged story about a beautiful woman with the power to defeat the armies of the underworld….titillating and highly descriptive fantasy story that offers up truly erotic sex scenes blended with nature magic and ancient wisdom. Author Saskia Walker succeeds at weaving powerful imagery with delicious romance." Marie, for Curled up With a Good Book
"STRANGELING is so much more than erotica or magic. At it’s heart, STRANGELING shows how believing in ourselves and taking a chance really can pay off.…If you are looking for a straight Romance, you’ll be very disappointed in THE STRANGELING. However, if you want a very well written, Erotic Fantasy, this books for you. I know I sure enjoyed it, and hope you will too." Dee and Dee Dish
