"unique spin on vampirism, ghosts, and voodoo practitioners"

Garner Reboulet and Maggie Snyder are newlywed members of the Phoenix Group, a group that investigates paranormal activity. After Garner leaves for Paris to investigate a possible vampire, he sends Maggie divorce papers. Maggie is hurt and confused, but she tries to carry on by investigating a haunting at Scarlet Oaks Manor near New Orleans, Garner's family home. Garner, who has been turned into a vampire, divorced Maggie in an attempt to protect her. Unfortunately, the female vampire that has been guiding Garner is very jealous. Simone, the female vampire, decides to go to Scarlet Oaks Manor and find a priceless sapphire called the Midnight Star, that has been lost for years. Garner fearing for Maggie's safety follows Simone to Scarlet Oaks Manor.

THE HAUNTING is a very enjoyable paranormal romance with interesting characters. Ms. Connolly puts her own unique spin on vampirism, ghosts, and voodoo practitioners. Her world building is masterful and I was caught up in the eery, gothic feel of her story. Garner and Maggie seemed to be doomed lovers and I was biting my nails until the very end.

I highly recommend THE HAUNTING for lovers of erotic, vampire romances.

Immersed in the history of Scarlet Oak Manor, Maggie releases malevolent forces when she is possessed by the spirits of previous owners Lyle and Susannah Forrester. Voodoo practitioner Etienne Fabron will go to any lengths to regain the fabulous Midnight Star sapphire. Without her estranged husband Garner’s help, they will destroy Maggie. Garner better get past nobility because the only thing that will save Maggie is the fact that he’s a vampire. If she doesn’t accept Garner for what he is, Maggie may find she’s walked right into the arms of a killer.
