Caught between realms, neither dead nor alive...Her life is about to change. His is about to begin.
Danni Jones believed everything she’d been told about her past—that she was an unwanted child abandoned by her mother. That she was an outcast set apart by her clairvoyance. That she was alone. Then came the stranger.
Sean Ballagh appears without warning with claims that Danni has family and they’ve been searching for her since she disappeared twenty years ago. It’s what the lonely child inside her has always dreamed. Knowing she’s desperate to understand who she is and where she comes from, Sean lures her back to Ireland, to a moment in her own past when her life was destroyed. In a world where nothing is what it seems, where the mystical and the occult are as vivid as the emerald fields, Danni must find the courage to face the treacherous past and believe that history can be rewritten.
Originally published August 2009 in trade paperback by Berkley and August 2011 in mass market paperback by Berkley Sensation.

“I love it when an author gives me something so different
than what I’ve ever read before, and Ms. Quinn
definitely does that. This is one of the
best books that I have read lately. I’m looking forward
to the next book, which features Danni’s twin, and I
know time is going crawl before I have it my hands.”

Read! “HAUNTING BEAUTY is so far above your
typical run-of-the mill paranormal romances. I savored
every page and still wanted to reread it when I reached
the end. I highly recommend this book and cannot wait
for HAUNTING WARRIOR!” Cindy,
CK2S Kwips and Kritiques
Quinn has written a terrific debut novel in HAUNTING
BEAUTY. Her unique spin on time travel and ghosts will
captivate readers. Fans of paranormal romance will
relish this tale so rich with magic and mystery,
especially those with a passion for Ireland. Quinn's
vivid descriptions make it easy to feel as if you
inhabit the novel along with the characters. It's
difficult for a novel to stand out from the rest with
the popularity of paranormal romances these days, but
Quinn has risen to the challenge with HAUNTING BEAUTY, a
story that boasts both a complex plot and a new spin on
the paranormal elements. I look forward to reading the
sequel HAUNTING WARRIOR as soon as possible"
BEAUTY is a superb debut. The writing is seamless;
written against a backdrop of Ireland in all its
lushness and myths. Danni and Sean are passionate and
full of vitality and depth. The mystery is well-turned
and builds until the final, shocking climax. If you
read one book this summer, don't miss this one!
Fantastic!" By Wendy,
entranced, rapt, take your pick. That’s the effect
Haunting Beauty had on me. I was completely ensnared in
the web of magic so masterfully woven by Erin Quinn. The
real world was a major annoyance because it meant I had
to leave the one inhabited by Danni and Sean. I was torn
between drawing it out, savoring it and devouring it
as quickly as I could. I tried for the middle path.
Parts I devoured while others I read slowly or re-read.
Haunting Beauty is a keeper that I’ll go back and
revisit again and again. For lovers of time travel
romance and intricate storytelling I highly recommend
Beauty from the start enthralled and captured me. [It] tells a story that had me
unsure, thrilled, satisfied, sighing with satisfaction,
happy and…unsure. It is a mysterious and haunting story
that absorbed and swept me away.” Rating: 4.75/5 stars.
Star, page turner rating from Romantic Times.
"Celtic fans will enjoy this trip into the Irish mists,
which has plenty of legends and mystical visions."
Quinn has woven together a complex story with life-like
characters, seductive passion and she’s added a
wonderful dash of magical mystery. She paints vivid and
breathtaking scenes that your imagination can grab onto
and play like a movie reel as you read. Haunting Beauty
is a book that you won’t want to put down and leaves you
breathless for more. The twists and turns Ms. Quinn
throws you throughout the story suck you in right up
until the very end. This is a book that I will
definitely be adding to my keeper collection. I will be
on the lookout for more books by Ms. Quinn in the
Night Owl Romance
Beauty is filled with fascinating characters, wonderful
detail, and the beautiful scenery of Ireland. Readers
will be drawn in right from the start. I would recommend
this book to fans of paranormal romance that enjoy
mystical elements and edge of your seat suspense. I’ll
be eagerly awaiting Haunting Warrior that’s currently
due to release in May of 2010." Kimberly Swan, DarqueReviews.com
Quinn’s HAUNTING BEAUTY is a unique new paranormal
series and the first book of hers that I have had the
good fortune to review. The story is well written and I
found it very enjoyable. Fortunately, I will have more
to read in this series as she has the next story,
HAUNTING WARRIOR coming out soon."
