Publisher's Summary

Investigating a noise in the attic of her historic home, Maggie Holliday encounters a handsome man in a Civil War uniform. He calls her "Isabel", seduces her in ways the shy academic had never dreamed of, then literally vanishes.

With every fleeting visit, Maggie's mysterious lover, Ethan, takes her closer to the edge of ecstasy and madness. Is he really a ghost? Far from chilling her, his touch is incendiary; it all feels so real and so very, very good. And so very familiar.

Ethan insists Maggie's the reincarnation of his long-lost love. And after a few incredible nights in his arms, Maggie is inclined to believe him. But does she dare surrender to a passion that transcends time, tragedy, and even death?

I liked it

can I just say that if you like corny romance books you will like this one and sorry but sometimes that is just what the doctor ordered to put you in a romantic mood when life is going so fast and stressful that you need to have a read that will whisk you away and this was one of those times for me and I enjoyed this book yes its predictable but its also fun and interesting, I hope that you enjoy this read

Entertaining love story through time.

This was a sexy and enjoyable love story across time, albeit some parts were absolutely unbelievable and hard to swallow. I'm not talking about loving a ghost, I did not have a problem with that. What I found hard to accept was Maggie's abusive boyfriend and how long she put up with him. I also found her reaction to a stranger in the attic on a stormy night incredulous. Any sane woman would be screaming/running/fighting him off rather than kissing him. Hope Tarr has another audiobook called "Bound To Please" that I recommend first. Nevertheless, The Haunting was a good listen with some steamy love scenes.

surprisingly good

I was surprised to have enjoyed this book so much. The plot seemed so unbelievable, but I found myself actually thinking this could be PLAUSIBLE. It was both romantic and sometimes erotic. I was not disappointed.

Predictable, but cute...

The haunting is a sweet, somewhat predictable novel. If you are in the mood for a few hours of simple entertainment, then by all means, this is it...
If, however, you are expecting something...you may be disappointed.

First Ghost Romance Bittersweet

So I'm not really sure what I was expecting... This is my first and probably last ghost romance. I tend to like the Paranormal Romance novels with shifters etc, but I thought I would try this one. The story was charming I did like the narrator. I just wasn't prepared for the ending.... But I guess you can't have ghosts without death and death is final.

Not what I call a happy ending especially after hearing about her last days according from others. Terribly sad

Enjoyable!

I'm a sucker for a ghost story romance and this story will quickly go to the top of my favorites list. I would love to see this author write more like it!

Surprising ending!

I enjoyed the book very much. I was, however, very surprised by the ending. I expected a normal ghost story, with maybe a couple of surprises along the way. I wasn't expecting how the book actually ended!

A pleasant surprise at how much I enjoyed it

I actually really enjoyed and was quite surprised that I enjoyed it as much as I did. I am normally a “mystery” girl but this is nothing but a straight up paranormal romance. I do admit I have always had a soft spot for ghost and ghost stories. I enjoyed all the characters and the fact the story gave you insight to more than just the main characters thoughts/feelings.

If your are looking for a lot of twists and side plots, this isn’t it. The story is very straight forward and predictable. I wasn’t upset by the predictably as it was more like the predictably of a comfy couch versus the predictably of a monotonous job. The only thing that leaves the reader at a unknown is how the author is going to end it and tie up all the loose ends.

The only thing that kept this from 5 stars is all the talk in the book about how strong Maggie is. Well she is not a strong character but she does grow towards that in in the end. The author tries to explain this away with some not so good excuses.

The narrator was very good at all the voices and I didn’t feel like they overdid the southern accents. This was my first Romance Package selection so I was pleasantly surprised at how much I enjoyed it.
