BEYOND CONTROL by Rebecca York

BEYOND CONTROL by Rebecca York
(Berkley, August 2005)
BEYOND CONTROL, by Rebecca York, tells the story of telepaths who discover and develop their powers only when they sexually link with another of their kind.
Jordan Walker and Lindsay Fleming meet at a Washington, D. C., cocktail party. When they touch, they experience an electric moment of psychic awareness. As they explore the unique bond forming between them, they discover that the more intimate their contact, the more their psychic powers develop.

As with York’s Moon books, Lindsay and Jordan must work out their personal relationship against a background of danger and suspense after they stumble onto his murder cover-up at a secret biological weapons lab. At the same time, two other telepaths who want all the psychic goodies for themselves set out to wipe Jordan and Lindsay from the face of the earth.
Rebecca York says that, "Publishers wouldn’t touch a story with this unique blend of suspense and sensuality 15 years ago. But the characters and the plot wouldn’t let me go, so I held onto them until the time was right."

Read Excerpt


Ever since she can remember, Ruth Glick has loved making up stories full of adventure, romance and suspense. As a child she corralled her friends into adventure games or acted out romantic suspense stories with a cast of dolls. But she never assumed she could be an author, because she couldn't spell. Her life changed, however, with the invention of the word processor and spelling checker--and the help of her husband, Norman Glick, who spots spelling errors from fifty paces away. Writing as Rebecca York, she has authored or co-authored over 45 romantic suspense novels, many for Harlequin Intrigue's very popular 43 Light Street series, set in Baltimore, and many with paranormal elements.

WOW! This was certainly one very hot, steamy, mind boggling and exciting suspense thriller. . . an absolutely riveting tale of suspense . . . with well-developed characters, stunning sensuality and some clever twists. A truly dynamite read! --Romance Designs

BEYOND CONTROL . . . plays out on two interwoven levels. The storyline is action-packed from the opening sequence at Maple Creek and never slows down until the lead couple learns what happened there. The tale also contains a delightful romance between Jordan and Lindsay that starts off with A Strangers in the Night encounter . . . and plays out on physical and paranormal planes. .. . a strong suspense-laden romantic tale. --Harriet Klausner

Good for Ruth! She's worked many years to get to where she is. I expect her to be declared an "overnight success" any day now!

Hi Deidre:
Read the book and loved it...of course.
Um...may I address a question to you?
I was visiting another blog from the OOTB , MaryJanice Davidsons to be exact.
I'm concerned.
Have any other authors in the OOTB come to you about Blog Spam? I've called it that not knowing the "official" term. I'm pretty sure MJD's site got bit.
I thought I saw a newbie blogger (just got set up in July) with something that seemed like it, but I didn't click to check.
If I'm correct...might it be a good idea to warn your group?
You have so many resources, I was wondering that if this IS true, would you have any tips on how to stop it or subvert it....I've enjoyed visiting the OOTB, but this ..this ..invasion may compromise your wonderful idea and vision for the OOTB.
I eagerly await your comments.
