This ghostly historical captivates with its snappy dialogue, broody, mysterious leading man, and naïve but stubborn heroine. Add in sundry delightful secondary characters and a storyline that blends mystery, romance and the supernatural into a tightly woven, beautiful tapestry, and you have a sure-fire dynamite of a read. Ms. Diablo excels at creating characters with depth and charisma and then placing them in unusual, sometimes uncomfortable, situations. The story is outstanding, the characters are delightful and the hot intimate scenes are tastefully described in such a way that is sure to set fire to your heart. Pick this book and be transported away from the ordinary.

Derek is a man struggling to find his way in life where the Strafford name is above reproach. Derek, a recent widower, whose first wife Lucinda recently died by drowning, is constantly forced to hear from his father that the first son who gives him a male heir receives the title to the Strafford manor. Suddenly, everything changes when a horrible accident happens on one of his boats

Raine, along with her parents, were traveling on a boat routed to land in Norfolk when there was a terrible accident. Raine's parents were lost at sea. Now Raine has no where to go and nothing to live on. When she is sent to the Stafford Manor to seek employment, she is not expecting to be attracted to Derek the man of the house. Raine is drawn to Derek at first sight. She also finds herself unexpectedly looked after by a friendly spirit that seems to be watching out for her.

What will Derek lower himself to, to get the title to Strafford manor? What will Raine do to get the money to get home to her elderly grandfather? How will blossoming love result to feelings of hate? How will two characters who are meant to stand the test of time be able to be apart? These are just a few questions to ask yourself, while reading this great novel.

Sojourn with a Stranger is absolutely wonderful. I was captivated and submerged from beginning to end. This is not your typical love story, but none the less spellbinding. Derek is a man who is struggling to make a place for himself in a world where his family's name is his life's "golden ticket". Raine is a very strong willed and prideful young lady. These two characters blend together effortlessly while keeping with the normal love/hate relationship that they seem to share. You will be emerced in the pages of this great romantic & historical novel. Keta Diablo is a master when it comes to historical romance and has proven once again that she is a delightful storyteller that deserves to have all of her novels read.

I ran across this author on Twitter and decided to give her work a try based on the blurb she posted on IAN. The story was an engaging, quick read, for a fun afternoon for me. My one little complaint was the uneven use of dialect in the dialogue; if you can look past that detail, though, the mystery was compelling and the character arcs enjoyable.

I really enjoyed this story. I love historical romances, and I'm always looking for something other than the boring, predictable regency romances. I'm so tired of reading books with one-dimensional characters and headstrong damsels who secretly want to be rescued by a knight in shining armor. Sojourn with a Stranger was refreshing change. The story, a historical romance with some paranormal elements was unique and fresh. The characters, Derek and Raine captured me from the beginning of the book. Derek was a brooding, obstinate man most of the time, but because the author did such a wonderful job of letting the reader inside his head, I totally understood why he did a lot of the things he did. The heroine, Raine was no shrinking violet either. I like that fact that even despite her humble circumstances, she didn't act like a victim. Despite the ghost of Derek's dead wife haunting the house, Derek and Raine were able to find love and passion. The ending had a little twist that I also enjoyed. This is one you won't want to pass up.

Raine Brinsley is in a sadly all-too-common situation for young women in the late nineteenth century. Both of her parents have died at sea, her meager family savings gone with them. She hopes to earn enough money working as a servant in a wealthy Norfolk, VA home to pay for the journey back to Maine, and her only surviving relative, an elderly grandfather. At a servants wages, it will take her years to save enough for the voyage, so when the manor's owner, wealthy and attractive Derek Stafford, makes her a very indecent proposal, she accepts it.

Derek Stafford needs an heir. His father has made it very clear that neither he nor his brother will inherit a dime unless they produce a male offspring, and Derek loves Stafford Manor and his lifestyle too much to take the threat of impoverishment lightly. He's determined to never marry again after watching his wife lose her sanity after stillbirth and miscarriage, to the point of her suicide. Raine seems to be the perfect solution.
I know, Derek sounds like a horrible cad. He isn't. There are many scenes with his point of view and the reader can see he is a man who, under the stress of loss, family pressure, and lust, makes a very bad decision. Derek realizes this too, and breaks off the deal with Raine, paying her the full amount and leaving her in peace so he can regain his sense of ethics aboard one of his shipping vessels. The only problem is that he has left Raine pregnant, and there is someone afoot with deadly intentions.

Sojourn With A Stranger has a slightly gothic air with ghosts, and witches of the tea-leaf reading, herbal-potion brewing kind. I loved how the paranormal aspects of the book were in keeping with the historical time period. The presence of bibles and laying-on-of-hands healing, the witchy midwife in the woods, the poltergeists of those wronged give the book that gothic touch I so loved. I really enjoyed the novel and found it difficult to put down.
