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...
"A DARK AND PASSIONATE ROMANCE WITH THE LITERARY BRILLANCE OF THE TIME TRAVELER'S WIFE."

This was an emotional ride... the pace quickens at the end. It isn't slow per se, isn't as fast as I like, but it didn't bother me. It was a very good, original story. I liked it a lot. I liked Danni learning of herself and her family, same with Sean. Sean's relationship with Danni is unique and intense. They must trust each other and help save one another. I would definitely read the second novel about Danni's twin brother, Rory. Haunting Warrior (Haunting Series)
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~
Danni, an abandoned soul in the real world, is the catalyst that binds the story together. With no memory prior to the age of 5, she has been bumped from one foster family to another most of her life. Now as an adult is suddenly whisked away to Ireland on a voyage of self-discovery and history with little knowledge of how or why. Danni is special and is about to learn far more than she would like.
Erin Quinn has the ability to draw her audience with her through the normal and the paranormal fluidly. Her characters range from innocent to deranged, from old to young, and then there are the lovers, sensual and strong, yet fragile at the same time. Her ability to slip through time and space in her writing captured me and catapulted me into a place I'd never been. Dual characters put a different spin on the story of Danni's past and that of the young man in the normal world, who. suddenly appeared to bring her to this place. I don't want to write too much about the storyline itself. Be assured it is provocative and seductive, a very satisfying read. It also appears to be the beginning of an exciting series. I really enjoyed reading this book.
It definitely was a novel to base a series off of as its purpose is to set the tide of understanding the book of Fennor and the capabilities it has for the next two books as well. I accidentally read the second book in this series first and in so doing was a little lost in the connections of some of the characters and the mystery that is the book of Fennor, this book went a long way to clearing up some of those questions. The series is great and I am looking forward to reading the third installment...Haunting Desire.
