The Banshee’s Embrace
Book 1 in The Banshee’s Embrace paranormal romance trilogy.
Jacqueline Huston has no idea what has been happening to her, but it started the night she was attacked by men with strange powers. While mortally wounded in the attack, Jacqueline knows she would have surely died if her husband hadn’t thrown himself into the line of fire. But being alive is little comfort when your husband is dead.
Ever since that night, Jacqueline has been strangely drawn to death for reasons she doesn’t understand. When death is nearby, she can see when it is coming for someone. However, it’s her urge to sing when she gets close to dying people that she finds most disturbing.
Toby Williams is a wizard and a member of the Brotherhood of Merlyn, an ancient order of powerful wizards. He’s been charged by the Brotherhood to keep an eye on Jacqueline. Half banshees are rare, and if placed in the wrong hands they can be a powerful weapon. As owner of Merlyn’s Bar, a place the lovely Ms. Huston frequents, it seems an easy enough assignment for Toby.
When a sinister wizard attempts to kidnap her, Jacqueline learns a frightening truth about her heritage, and her powers. Will she be able to use her powers to save Toby, the man she is falling in love with, or will her powers consumer her, causing her to lose everything she holds dear?

About Victoria Richards:
I’m a native southern Californian. A married and a stay-at-home mom of two beautiful daughters. I holds two degrees, one in Liberal Arts and the other in History. I have been writing since I was old enough to pick up a pencil, but it wasn’t until college that I really developed a love for writing creatively. At the suggestion of my creative writing professor I decided to pursue a more full-time career as a writer, something that I enjoy and gives me immense satisfaction.
My passion for reading and writing has been focused mostly in the romance genre. With a hyperactive (and romantic) imagination, a degree in history and a love for the arts I find it easy to blend these many disperse elements together to create romance stories that can range from the beautiful to the bizarre.
My other interests include traveling, painting, shopping, volleyball, jogging at the beach, rollerblading and enjoying a good game of billiards.
