S She can return to her grandfather and he'll inherit a life of wealth and luxury But dark stirrings are afoot at Stafford House A ghost haunts the halls of the manor and the spirit is intent on exposing her killer to Raine Steeped in murderous plots Derek and Raine face insurmountable odds of achieving their dreamsAnd fight the insatiable hunger between them A dark Gothic novel with spirits voodoo mystery and suspense. 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 uniue 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
