An ex-cop harbors a deadly secret. How can he protect a woman in danger?

Young widow Sharon Mahoney moves with her seven-year-old son into a Victorian rooming house, where she's drawn to ex-policeman Ian Fanning. But Ian, a gifted artist, is obsessed with painting the woman his grandfather murdered--who looks exactly like Sharon.

As the suspense builds in their small town, the old murder case seems to be playing out anew, with startling twists. Does the vengeful spirit of Ian's grandfather have unfinished business? It seems that only Ian can save Sharon--by putting his own life at risk.

You'll be hooked by the strong female protagonist and the intense, surprising turns. This fast-paced romantic thriller was written by USA Today bestselling novelist Jacqueline Diamond, author of the Safe Harbor Medical Mysteries. A former Associated Press reporter, Jacqueline has sold more than a hundred books--mysteries, medical romances and Regency romances--to a range of publishers. Her other romance mysteries include in And the Bride Vanishes, Sheikh Surrender and His Secret Son.

"Touch Me in the Dark ensnared me in its roller coaster story line, entertaining and thrilling me as Ms. Diamond skillfully unraveled mystery after mystery," wrote reviewer Donna Zapf on

I love Gothic romances, especially paranormal ones, and not many are published anymore. So I was delighted to discover Touch Me in the Dark and read it with great pleasure. A spooky old Victorian, interesting characters, and a twisty story. For a different take, this story was set in an unusual place--Southern California--not where you'd expect to find a Gothic ghost story. But it works! Touch Me in the Dark is definitely worth reading.

Excellent Ghost Story! Sharon Mahoney and her son Greg have moved back to California from New York after her husband/his father died unexpectedly from a heart attack and then Sharon is laid off from the school where she teaches. Her sister lands her a job at a school in California and even finds her a place to rent, so Sharon and Greg pack up their minivan and travel across the country to the start of a new life. The old house with the apartment for rent is old, creepy and even has a resident ghost, the man who was accused of killing the current owner’s sister. The sister, Jody, still lives there and her great-nephew, Ian Fanning, lives there, too. The last couple living there is a distant cousin and her husband. Strange things are said to happen in the house and Sharon and Greg see some really weird things themselves. Who is the ghost and what is he/she trying to tell the people living there? Will the anniversary of the murder, fast approaching, bring another death or will the cycle be broken? This was a great story. Well-written and smooth-flowing with well-fleshed characters and an interesting plot I couldn’t wait to find out how it all played out. This was my first read of Jacqueline Diamond, but it won’t be my last. *The author provided a copy of this book to me for review. Please see disclaimer page on my blog.
