More About the Author

"[Rebecca York's] books. . . deliver what they promise: excitement, mystery, romance. . ."
- Michael Dirda, Washington Post

An award-winning, best-selling novelist, Ruth Glick is the author of over 140 books. Writing as Rebecca York, she has authored or co-authored over 90 romantic suspense novels. The first of her Berkley Sensation paranormal romantic suspense novels, KILLING MOON, was published in June 2003; EDGE OF THE MOON followed in August 2003 and WITCHING MOON in October 2003. KILLING MOON and EDGE OF THE MOON were launch books for the Berkley Sensation imprint.

She writes the popular 43 Light Street series for Harlequin Intrigue. Over 30 Light Street Intrigues have been published. NOWHERE MAN was called "one of the most heart-wrenching, moving works of romantic suspense in several years," by reviewer Harriet Klausner.

Ruth's many awards include two Rita finalist books. She has two Career Achievement awards from Romantic Times: for Series Romantic Suspense and Series Romantic Mystery. NOWHERE MAN was the Romantic Times Best Intrigue of 1998, and the book has been selected as one of their Reviewers' "all-time favorite 400 romances." In addition, she received the 1998 Affaire de Coeur's Critics Choice Award for Best Contemporary Novel, also for NOWHERE MAN. Ruth's book, KILLING MOON won the 2003 New Jersey Romance Writers Golden Leaf Award for best Paranormal. AMANDA'S CHILD won the 2001 Golden Leaf Award for Long Contemporary and was nominated for Best Intrigue of 2000 by Romantic Times. "Tyler" in BAYOU BLOOD BROTHERS won the 2001 Golden Leaf Award for best Novella. In 2007 THE SECRET NIGHT received the Romantic Times Reviewers Choice Award for best Harlequin Intrigue. She is is one of only 14 romance novelists to have received the Romance Writers of America Centennial Award for having written over 100 romance novels. Ruth's cookbook, 100% PLEASURE, was picked by USA Today as one of the 12 best cookbooks of 1994; her FABULOUS LO-CARB CUISINE was a finalist for the MidAtlantic Publishers Association's Excellence in Independent Publishing Award.

Several of Ruth's Moon books (WITCHING MOON, SHADOW OF THE MOON, and NEW MOON) have been on the USA Today best-seller list.

Ruth and her husband travel frequently to research settings for novels and taste new dishes for cookbooks. Her many unique experiences are apt to end up in her books--like the time she encountered a coral snake in the Guatemalan jungle or took a flight in a hot air balloon.

Ms. York offeres readers edge of your seat reading with the paranormal/suspense read.
Jordan Walker is a respected journalist and he has just been offered a the chance of a lifetime when a millionaire requests that he investigate the death of his son in exchange for all rights to his biography. Jordan realizes that there is more to this than meets the eye and when he starts his investigation he finds out just how right he was, and just how dangerous his new investigation is for more than one reason.
It leads to government secrets and to Lindsay Fleming a woman that has Capitol Hill connections that could help him in his search for the truth. Lindsay is special for another reason. They have a very special connection. One that neither of them can forget or ignore. They are destined for each other but first they must survive the upcoming investigation. Secrets will be exposed, people will be killed and Jordan and Lindsay will be right in the middle of it all.
This was a very fast paced read that blew this reader away with it's creativity and sensuality between Jordan and Lindsay. Ms. York has become an automatic read for me and an author that offeres reads with entertaining twists and turns. As a result the reader will never be bored here.

Outstanding Suspense - Very Clever TWISTS and TURNS - HOT!!! 2 Aug. 2005
By M. Rondeau - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Mass Market Paperback
When billionaire Leonard Hamilton summoned journalist Jordan Walker to his home, Jordan made sure he'd done his homework. He was prepared having done as thorough a background research on the reclusive philanthropist as humanly possible, but nothing could have prepared him for the life altering discoveries he would soon make once he'd accepted the job and started investigating the `alleged accidental death' of the billionaire's son.

While delving into the investigation Jordan obtained an invitation to a senator's party where he was instantly aware of a beautiful brunette. Never one to actively pursue the opposite sex the intense attraction was extraordinary as it heightened his senses in a most peculiar way. The object of Jordan's scrutiny, Lindsay Fleming, aide to a powerful senator, was also keenly aware of Jordan in much the same way. When they were introduced to one another and touched hands, the effect was instantaneous and it seemingly opened each other's minds to one another - a very scary situation for both parties who had never met before that day!

The connection was stronger than anything each had ever felt, and as they came to explore the bond and similar feelings further, they became embroiled in a massive government cover-up of murder, mind-control and biological warfare. Racing against time, they had to forge their new-found telepathic bond; a bond that would only grow stronger with their complete sexual surrender in order to save themselves and uncover a deadly government conspiracy.

____ WOW! This was certainly one very hot, steamy, mind boggling and exciting suspense thriller. I loved the concept of finding a soul mate who was so telepathically connected with you that there was no need to vocalize. You name it, this book has it including some very snappy dialogs combined with an absolutely riveting tale of suspense and a love match between two people who had to overcome personal conflicts in working hard to an understand of their extraordinary connection. This was a very well written and skillfully executed tale with well-developed characters, stunning sensuality and some clever twists. A truly dynamic, can't put it down, read! --- Marilyn, for [...] ---

Please tell me this is the start of a new series! 14 Aug. 2005
By D. K. Stokes - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Mass Market Paperback
I've been reading Rebecca York's books for a while, and she just keeps getting better and better. The suspense and the romance in Beyond Control are balanced perfectly, with each unfolding at the same pace and with the same intensity.

It's a story of two people uncovering a conspiracy that dates back to their own births, and it's a story of two people who've spent their entire lives alone, set apart from other people because of their psychic abilities, finding an intimacy that's deeper than they could ever have imagined, and coming to terms with it.

The good:

The suspense. I spent a lot of this book on the edge of my seat.

The secondary characters. They're all well-developed, and understandable.

The love scenes. Well-written and HOT!--the psychic connection worked very well.

The way the many threads of the book meshed seamlessly.

The bad:

You do have to read the first couple of chapters carefully to keep all the characters straight, but it's more than worth it.

The truly excellent:

The intensity and honesty of the emotions between the main characters.

The verdict:

An absolute keeper that I'll read again and again.

Pretty Good! 9 May 2008
By GinRobi - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Mass Market Paperback
The main characters were pretty amazing, adapting to the whole thing quite quickly. Jordan, an investigative journalist, seeks the help of Lindsay, who works for a U.S. senator, in digging for the truth about a secret lab, secret drugs, and the reason why key people are dead. With one touch, they unlock a force between them, a telepathic connection that gets stronger with every touch. Soon they can do things that other 'normal' humans can't. And both want to know why this is happening.

It's great to see both characters develope, how they feel about one another. The plot unfolds, action and suspense abound, a great first novel.

Good writing, but overdone concept 9 Oct. 2005
By A. Rowley - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Mass Market Paperback
Beyond Control was a mediocre paranormal romance. The same concept of two people with a telepathic connection linked with sexual tendencies has been done before, and frankly a lot better. Probably the best book I've read with that topic was MIMOSA GROVE, by Dinah McCall. Maybe if I had read this one before that, I would have thought differently about it. It was not a bad read, but there really was little to the story line and no great twists or surprise ending. Not even a reveal of any kind. It just kind of died off and was fairly non-climactic. I hate to say something so negative about this book when it was okay, but it just didn't do it for me. Is it worth the money to buy? Possibly. If you are into the sci-fi paranormal, sord of X-files story and like a lot of heated sex to your romance, than you will probably enjoy this book. As far as the plot goes, read it with an open mind and don't expect too much. That way, you won't be dissappointed. If you can find this book for under five bucks, you should be fine with it.
