Book Description

After battling a malevolent ghost that held the spirit of her friend Ian MacKinnon bound to the land for two hundred years, sixteen-year-old reluctant psychic, Riley Williams, felt as if she was finally easing into her new life in Scotland.

Or so she thought.

Laria, the spirit of the witch who had cursed Ian wants revenge for Riley’s interference and she’s bringing along friends—dark entities who thrive on evil.

The one bright spot in Riley’s world is Ian’s descendent, Kade MacKinnon, who could easily be Ian’s modern day twin. The parallels between the two guys are undeniable. As Riley’s relationship with Kade blossoms, she begins to realize Laria has grown in her power since their last confrontation—a power that could very well manipulate the living just as effectively as the dead.

Please note: THE HAUNTED is a mature YA. Due to strong language, mention of alcohol and drug use, cutting, and sexual content, it is not recommended for younger teens.

5.0 out of 5 stars BookWhisperer Must Read: The Haunted January 19, 2012
Format:Kindle Edition
What am I supposed to do now? I started The Deepest Cut, and found myself in love. While I was aware of some minor glitches in the first novel; this second book showed none of the same obstacles. Where book one was an instant attraction and an impossible relationship; book two is budding relationship that grows and develops. The Haunting starts from where book one leaves off at full speed. Upon the return of the cousins, Riley finds herself instantly drawn to Kade MacKinnon; but is it solely due to the resemblance to a certain ghost or is there more to the attraction. It quickly proves difficult getting to know Kade with a pesky determined ghost that just refuses to go away, but somehow Riley and Kade manage to find a strong connection that grows rather quickly. As the deadly interactions become more and more frequent Riley will have to accept her inability to face this alone, but determine just who can she trust with her secrets. This was the first appearance of the MacKinnon family, and I am in love with the entire bunch. Each with their unique personalities make them stand out amongst the entire cast of character. This was a heart racing read from the start, and Templeton offered the same goose bump read that I enjoyed with The Deepest Cut. The ending was a race right up until the last page, and left me in a daze. I spent several minutes flipping pages back and worth saying, "Are you kidding me? It just STOPS!" I know it is intended to be a cliff hanger, but really what am I supposed to do now? It will be a depressing wait for the next book. So far each book as been short and easy reads, but offering a captivating and intriguing story that will leave you begging for more. These are BookWhisperer Must Reads.

5.0 out of 5 stars Another Win for J.A. Templeton! January 9, 2012
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
AMAZING! J.A. does another phenomenal job in book 2 of the MacKinnon Curse series "The Haunted." Scary, in depth, romantic and controversial- I can't get enough! It is such a nice break from the "typical heroine" to actually read about a girl who has a dark side to her, which makes it more realistic and different. I myself have found Riley a comfort, reminding me that not everyone is the "happy go lucky, perfect life cheerleader type." Thank you J.A. for helping me find comfort in Riley. It means the world~ Keep up the great work! I will be first in line to buy the next one!!

2.0 out of 5 stars I can't recommend this book for YA, which is sad February 20, 2013
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
The first book in this series had me caught from the opening pages - which is why I like to read YA fiction, frankly - the action starts with the first page. However this book strings together one drinking party with another, and while the interplay between the characters was realistic (based on my teen clients) the total acceptance that everyone was smoking weed, drinking, and having sex makes this a book I can't recommend for anyone. I am well aware that today's teens are far different from those of my generation, and yet, I wonder if books in which the casual sex and drug abuse are accepted as normal are helping the growing problems with our teens..........the ones that have to do with heartbreak and abandonment and drug abuse. So, I can't join the 5-star crowd on this one.

This book was okay, but it was definitely a middle book. I hope something actually happens in the next one.

5.0 out of 5 stars in love with Riley and Kade/Ian!!! March 9, 2012
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I just finished reading both the "The Deepest Cut" and "The Hunted".... all I can say is WOW!! I was immediately drawn into Riley's situation (not that I see spirits or anything.. tho I do believe in them) having lost her mother and her affliction for cutting herself.... I devoured these two books in just two days time.. J.A. Templeton puts so much emotion into the story that when reading you can feel Riley's joy and love along with her pain and loneliness... I cried my eyes out when she had to break the curse on Ian and send him on to the "After Life"... my heart broke when she found out that Laria had tricked Kade into believing Dana was Riley at the party... I could feel her heartache... but I could also feel the love the she has for Kade/Ian... If these two books are a sign of what lies ahead in "The Departed"... I'm dying to know what happens when Riley and Kade FINALLY get to talk about everything!!!! PLEASE PLEASE HURRY AND GET THE NEXT BOOK OUT SO I CAN READ IT!!!!!!

All I can say is "WOW"! This is the best sequel in a paranormal romance series that I`ve read in quite awhile. It surpassed my many expectations and I am waiting with bated breath for the third installment of this series. I hope that Kade/Ian and Riley obtain the happy ending that they truly deserve.
