Product Description

Product Description

Sara Wise is sick of ghosts. They’ve haunted her since she was a child, destroying her family, endangering her life. When an incorporeal being appears in her shower, she curses him soundly and orders him out, but this ghost is sticky. Not only does he invade her shower, he moves into her home, invading her dreams, sharing her bed. The reluctant Sara finds herself falling in love with a dead man.
Despite Sara’s objections, Natan de Manua isn’t permitted to leave. Protecting the woman is both his penance and his means to redemption. She’s not easy to protect, she fights him nearly every step of the way, except in her bed. Nathan may have come to regain his soul, but instead he risks losing his heart. Incorporeal is Book One of The Soul Series. The sequels to Incorporeal are now out: In the Flesh, by J.R. Barrett and Stay by J.R. Barrett.

HASH(0x9edb8eac) out of 5 stars Grab love when you find it - even with a 500 yr. old ghost Aug. 1 2011
By Countess Chocula - Published on
Format: Kindle Edition
Sara Wise has spent her life in the company of unseen ghosts. The voices usually want her to carry some last message - she's learned the hard way to promise but not deliver - and then they go away. For two months now though, she's had an incorporeal visitor that can't or won't leave. Instead of asking her to give some, "I'm in a better place," or "the second will is under the doormat," message to a surviving loved one, he's been hanging around chatting during the day and at night stealing into her dreams and making passionate love to her.

Natan de Manua - Nathan - is seeking redemption for something he thinks he did more than five hundred years earlier. He'd been suffering in tormented limbo until he was offered the chance to watch over Sara although he doesn't know what he's supposed to do or when. He always assumed he'd stay incorporeal but the more he's with Sara, touching her in her dreams and being part of her life, the stronger he becomes until he's able to assume a solid form again. The happiness that he and Sara find with each other feels fragile though because both know that if he's been allowed to become corporeal, chances are it's because the danger he's been sent to protect her from is near and when his job is done, he'll be gone.

While this is obviously a contemporary romance, it has a love-through-the-ages theme that reminded me of some of the romance novels that got me obsessed with the genre when I was a lot younger. There are almost two stories book-ending a tragedy - Sara and Nathan's sweet, passionate and happy romance and the event that led him to her then the aftermath. There's a paranormal suspense story throughout the majority of the book, enough to keep the lovers on edge and just enough to add some darkness to the story.

There was an interesting little segment in the story away from Nathan and Sara's romance that was a combination of a wink-wink and maybe a little side-eye at the business of romance publishing. As a reader, I have zero idea about what goes on behind the scenes when it comes to getting something published, but the thrust of the scene is that in some eyes, it's best that authors find a genre, develop a brand and not vary from it or they won't find an audience (or get published). There's a lot more in the section, but I think there's probably more than a little truth about the branding issue, since rather than using their own names when they switch genres to write, many authors use pen names. The entire passage is handled with some humor and exasperation and gave me an appreciation for what I'm assuming is some of the minutia authors go through.

One of the things I love best about reading Julia's books is that when I finish I always feel like she's given me an honest piece of herself in the story somewhere, whether it's an experience, an opinion or an emotion and it makes me feel more connected to the story. I was with Nathan and Sara from the beginning, hoping that they'd find a way to be together, despairing right along with them when it looked like hope was lost. I had a soggy handful of tissues by the last few chapters and even though I knew a happily ever after had to come for Sara, the one that was delivered was especially right, especially sweet and impossibly romantic.

HASH(0x9f0a5ed0) out of 5 stars 3.5 Stars Sept. 30 2011
By Laurielu - Published on
Format: Kindle Edition
Incorporeal by Julia Rachel Barrett is a touching erotic paranormal love story with an interesting twist. Sara Wise has had the ability to "see" ghosts all of her life. They afflict her life by encroaching their needs onto her before they will give her any peace. Since Natan de Manua - an incorporeal being himself - has moved into her life and excised all the other ghosts from her home. He has set himself up as her protector and breached her dreams where he appears to her in corporeal form. As he spends more and more time around her, Natan finds himself able to manipulate the elements around him and he finds himself falling inexorably in love with his ghost-seer.

I found this story intriguing because I have not read a paranormal romance involving a ghost as a hero before. I kept, thinking "how is this going to work?" Well, Ms. Barrett did a very good job of making this erotic romance "work." She was able to finesse the story where the reader is able to make the connection necessary to make the romance credible. The characters were believable, appealing, and unique. In addition, the plot was exciting. If you are a paranormal reader who likes her story spicy and unique, you will enjoy this story.

Happy Reading from Bona Fide Relfections!!

HASH(0x9f0a3c30) out of 5 stars Love story first Aug. 4 2011
By Amazon Customer - Published on

Although this story involved a ghost, it's a fantastic love story that I have revisited several times now. Sara & Nathan are so sweet together. Sara can see spirits, and the one in her house is visiting her in her dreams, turning them very erotic. As Nathan continues to reveal himself, their feelings grow into so much more than just lust. He has been given another chance to make a difference here on earth, a mission, and he plans on doing everything right to save the woman he has fallen in love with.
This is a very well written story, with a full fledged story line involving all the key elements to a great drama. At one point I found myself getting choked up, and thought "well, that's it then, I guess that's all the Happily ever after she gets". But the author has another surprise in store for you, and I love the way she wrapped up the story. It left me fully satisfied & and smiling at the end. Kudos to Julia Barrett for an amazing book that I hope brings her the wonderful reviews and recognition she deserves.

E-Book provided by author in anticipation of a fair review.
No remuneration was exchanged.

I have had the privilege to witness the growth of a writer. With her three latest books Julia Barrett has become much more than just another romance writer. This is a very original story where the hero is, well, the hero is dead. sort of. Parts of his body are very much alive. Sara and Nathan are great together. I would like to see a little more sexual variety, but sex is not the main focus of the story--just a great side benefit. The dialogue is very sincere and true. The story is about love bearing all, and winning it all.

The story has some edge of your seat thrills and some tissues-at-hand sad. When Julia originally pitched this story she was told you couldn't kill of the main love interest. As feisty as her heroines, this spurred Julia on to the task!

To understand this story. You have to accept that the hero is dead but not dead. You also need to set aside your disbelief for Julia's world building. I would like to see both a little more character development and a little more emotional range and demonstration. I didn't feel the chills that Sara felt in the action scene. And a few questions continue, unanswered. I can't say which because of spoilers. Not all the mysteries need to be solved, the world building is an example. But there are a couple of "Wait, what about..."

I recommend this book; because it is very original, interesting and intense,

HASH(0x9f0a566c) out of 5 stars Is your dream man a ghost? Check this out - he will be!!! March 1 2012

My thoughts:
Incorporeal is my first ghost romance and I am thrilled to have had the opportunity to read it. Wonderful story! Sweet, romantic, a bit on the spicy side - it has a little bit of everything; mystery, suspense, history, demons, guardians, ghosts, friendship, fear, loss, love...
I loved that it questions the value of time ~ what would be important to you if you knew you had a timeframe?
The characters are amazing! The main and supporting characters all drew a strong reaction. Sara and Nathan of course are my favorites, but some of the supporting characters left lasting impressions.
The editor - Leah - horrible woman.
The best friends - Geri and Dalton - created in the image we all hold of the women we want to spend our time with.
The author has given Nathan the ability to learn to use various powers and was a pleasure to watch how that unfold. The relationship between Sara and Nathan was both playful and serious, but also at times, so much more than what most people are given.
The story was well written and entertaining. I enjoyed the twists and turns in the last few chapters. The end was not exactly what I was expecting, but so nicely done. I closed the book with a sigh, loving the finish but wishing there was more.
