Book Giveaway:

Haunting Embrace by Erin Quinn



Within Meaghan Ballagh surges the blood of an ancient sorceress whose long ago love for the druid Áedán ended in treachery—a fate that ensnares Meaghan herself when she is thrust into the past. She can feel the desire between the sorceress and the handsome druid rise inside her. To ensure her survival, she must piece together the history of the woman who haunts her and the man who needs her.


Áedán recognizes Meaghan. He always will. For the spirit of his one true love—and immortal enemy—is in her. A woman for whom Áedán once risked everything he ever had only to be repaid with betrayal and eternal damnation. This time, he’s not going to let Meaghan escape—because together they have the power to change their destiny.

As the passion between them grows, so do their fears of arousing an ancient, haunted, and forbidden love, and for changing a past that could irrevocably destroy the future.

Last night my husband was reading over my shoulder and asked how many books I have read where the guy is named Roarke. He always thinks the characters have the same names. I guess I don't notice, for me each character is different and their own person. So if I am reading a story about the fifth Lucian to me he is a whole new character and I don't stop and think how common his name is.

Quinn's series is wonderful and her writing sucks you into the books so you can't put them down. I can't wait to read Haunting Embrace. Thank you so much for doing a giveaway with a book from this author!!!

I think of Michael first and the various ways they spell it. That came to me first. Then as a female name, I thought of Anne because it was like two books in a row that I read that had Anne as the characters name and I got so confused that I had to wait to finish reading because I kept going to the thoughts of the other book!! So I do love unique names!

I'd love to read HAUNTING EMBRACE! Thanks. cathiecaffey @
