Book Description

A young widow and her seven-year-old son just moved into a rooming house with a troubled past. Sharon Mahoney is drawn to her neighbor, injured ex-cop Ian Fanning, only to discover he’s obsessed with painting the woman his grandfather murdered—who looks exactly like Sharon.

Strange events build as an old murder case seems to be playing out with ghostly twists involving the Victorian home’s occupants. Does the spirit of Ian’s grandfather have deadly unfinished business? If so, it seems only Ian can save Sharon--unless he himself is becoming the threat.

Jacqueline Diamond’s more than 95 published novels include mysteries, fantasy,, Regencies and romantic intrigues. She received a Career Achievement Award from Romantic Times magazine and has twice been a Rita Award finalist. Jackie is a former Associated Press reporter and television columnist. She offers frequent specials on her website, jacquelinediamond.com, and her Facebook page, JacquelineDiamondAuthor.

What reviewers say about Touch Me in the Dark:

A great story. Well-written…I couldn’t wait to find out how it all played out. This was my first read of Jacqueline Diamond but it won’t be my last.
--Carol Conley, imavoraciousreader@yahoo.com

Fantastic read! I have a weakness for mystery/thriller type romances and the paranormal just gives this story an extra je-ne-sais-quoi. Another good thing is that there really is a twist at the end! Generally I figure out who the bad guy (or girl) is a quarter or halfway through, however this time I truly was blindsided. I won't spoil it for you, but I strongly recommend you give Touch Me in the Dark a go.
--Nightowlromance.com

Touch Me in the Dark has all the elements of a paranormal that we come to expect nowadays without being in the "norm". This book twists what we think of as paranormal into a new and fascinating direction.
--Wereallydig.com

Touch Me in the Dark ensnared me in its roller coaster story line, entertaining and thrilling me as Ms. Diamond skillfully unraveled mystery after mystery. Little by little Ms. Diamond built the suspense, reeling in her readers for a dynamic climax. Touch Me in the Dark continues to excite me, so much so that I recommend this fascinating book to one and all.

5.0 out of 5 stars Very Pleased! April 29, 2010
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
It's funny how I came across this book. I was actually trying searches for one of my own books and tried "paranormal romance ghost". My book came up second in the search, but this one came up first. I was curious, so I downloaded a sample. And then I couldn't stop - so I bought it. I was mesmerized. I was carrying my Kindle around, reading every chance I got. It even made me late for work a couple of days.

This is really a great story, spooky and romantic at the same time. I had already guessed who the killer was, but it didn't detract from the story...and I wasn't 100% sure. I would recommend this book to anyone who loves a good ghost story.

5.0 out of 5 stars A Paranormal Gothic Romance June 23, 2011
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I love Gothic Romances, especially paranormal ones, and not many are published anymore. So I was delighted to discover Touch Me in the Dark and read it with great pleasure. A spooky old Victorian, interesting characters, and a twisty story. For a different take, this story was set in an unusual place--Southern California--not where you'd expect to find a Gothic ghost story. But it works! Touch Me in the Dark is definitely worth reading!

4.0 out of 5 stars Very Entertaining! June 15, 2012
By Rhonda
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
Thoroughly enjoyed this book. The pacing was excellent and kept me turning the pages long after I should have been in bed. I love haunted house stories and this one didn't disappoint. The characters were well developed and the main characters were flawed but likeable. This was the first book I've read by Ms. Diamond, but it won't be the last.

4.0 out of 5 stars Excellent Ghost Story! May 14, 2012
Format:Kindle Edition
Sharon Mahoney and her son Greg have moved back to California from New York after her husband/his father died unexpectedly from a heart attack and then Sharon is laid off from the school where she teaches. Her sister lands her a job at a school in California and even finds her a place to rent, so Sharon and Greg pack up their minivan and travel across the country to the start of a new life.

The old house with the apartment for rent is old, creepy and even has a resident ghost, the man who was accused of killing the current owner's sister. The sister, Jody, still lives there and her great-nephew, Ian Fanning, lives there, too. The last couple living there is a distant cousin and her husband. Strange things are said to happen in the house and Sharon and Greg see some really weird things themselves. Who is the ghost and what is he/she trying to tell the people living there? Will the anniversary of the murder, fast approaching, bring another death or will the cycle be broken?

This was a great story. Well-written and smooth-flowing with well-fleshed characters and an interesting plot I couldn't wait to find out how it all played out. This was my first read of Jacqueline Diamond, but it won't be my last.

More About the Author

Writing has always been my passion, and fortunately, I never run short of ideas. As a result, my more than ninety-five novels cover a wide array of genres, including Regency romance, science fiction, fantasy, romance, humor and mystery.

Currently, I write the Safe Harbor Medical series for Harlequin American Romance (there's a complete list of the books on my website, jacquelinediamond.com, and you can sign up for my mailing list there, too). Book #14, The Surprise Triplets, came out in September, 2014, followed in March 2015 by The Baby Bonanza. These are available both in paperback and in Kindle ebook editions.

In addition, an ongoing project is updating and revising some of my old favorites. It's a thrill to make these books, including a half-dozen traditional Regency romances, available for Kindle readers. A Lady's Point of View is priced at 99 cents, with the other Regencies (set in England in Jane Austen's day) at $2.99.

Please note: to my frustration, Author Central shows old, outdated covers on my ebooks. Please click on the Kindle link to see the new and vastly improved covers to these revised, updated editions!

My contemporary romantic comedies include Cindy and the Fella; Designer Genes; Calling All Glass Slippers, Yours, Mine and Ours; The Rancher's Unusual Nanny and Run, Run, Runaway Bride. Or you might enjoy my light-hearted time travel, One Husband Too Many.

Each month, I offer a different special, such as a Kindle edition for 99 cents. Details are on my website and my Facebook page, Jacquelinediamondauthor. Currently, I've bundled four complete contemporary romances under the title 4 Family Romances Book Bundle, for only $4.99. This includes A Warm December, By Leaps and Bounds, The Trouble With Terry, and Old Dreams, New Dreams, all of which include children and holidays.

I've reissued and revised my mysteries Danger Music and The Eyes of a Stranger for Kindle. Available as well are my fantasy novel Shadowlight, the supernatural mystery Echoes, my s.f./alternate history thriller Out of Her Universe, and my Gothic romantic suspense Touch Me in the Dark.

One more thing: after teaching more than a hundred writing students, I've put together an ebook called How to Write a Novel in One (Not-so-Easy) Lesson. It's a friendly, down-to-earth approach to writing your novel, your way, and only 99 cents for Kindle readers.

Happy reading!
