"A BOOK THAT YOU WON'T WANT TO PUT DOWN."--Night Owl Romance
A mysterious stranger. A lost woman. A terrifying legacy.
Danni Jones doesn't believe in destiny until she meets the seductive Sean Ballagh. He lures her back to Ireland, to a moment in her own past when her life was destroyed. He gives her the chance to change everything. Sean is not what he seems and Danni isn't certain she can trust him, yet she cannot resist him or what he offers no matter how much she fears the consequences.
Now, in a land where the mystical and the occult are as vivid as the emerald fields, Danni must fight the forces that threaten to rip her and Sean apart and rewrite history to save herself and the one man she was meant to love--or live forever in time as nothing more than an ethereal memory, a tragic and haunting beauty...

I really really liked Haunting Beauty though it took me a while to understand what was really going on. I wasn't initially sure whether it was a ghost story or a time travel romance even though the Danni figures this out fairly quickly. Because key elements of the story are told in visions or dreams, Haunting Beauty has a non-linear flow that actually works to reinforce the haunting feel and to build the tension as Danni struggles to find a way to change the events of the night which had such tragic consequences for Danni and Shaun and for both of their families.
I liked the magical feel that the visions and the Celtic lore brought to the story, but it was really Danni and especially Shaun who won my heart. Both the leads are quite likeable and have an appealing vulnerability.Read more ›
Now's her chance to discover her past, as visions unfold, and an amazing journey sweeps both Danni and Sean back in time to twenty years in the past, just a few days before the terrible events unfold that will change their life to the one they just left. It's not often second chances are given. Does Danni have the power within herself to alter the tragic events?
The imagery and tone created a mysterious and vivid story. The twisted, tangled, and devastating events from the past catapult this book on a journey to uncover the secrets that will allow Danni and Sean to find the peace and answers they need to heal and find the love of of a family Danni has always yearned to have. The twists and turns this dark tale takes you on was at times confusing, and some things were left unanswered or rather unanswerable, but I chalk that up to storytelling and the beauty of fiction. Let your mind wonder and explore the possibilities.
Complex and fascinating to say the least!
My next book will be Rory's story but I do know that I will be reading all of them before the summer ends. ~P~
