Erin Quinn Books

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.” The Good, the Bad and the Unread, Sandy M.

Recommended 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

"Erin 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"  Katherine, Fresh Fiction

"HAUNTING 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, Romance Junkies

“Enthralled, 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 Haunting Beauty.”  Manic Readers

  “Haunting Beauty from the start enthralled and captured me. [It] tells a story that had me wondering, guessing, 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.  Mom Musings

Four 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."

Top Pick!  "Ms. 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 future." 
Heather, Night Owl Romance

"Haunting 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,

"Erin 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."
