"taut and suspenseful"
"Magical Anna" Ridgeway's nightclub mind-reading act has
brought her to the beautiful island paradise of Grand
Fernandino. But she is unaware of club owner Etienne's
devotion to Raoul San Donato, the sinister Vadiana priest
who has recognized Anna's talent, and wants her as his
bride and priestess.
Meanwhile, diver and treasure hunter Zachary Robinson is on
the trail of a sunken yacht that may have been the site of
a murder. When a trip to Etienne's night club results in an
instant and inexplicable bond with Anna, they realize
something extraordinary is happening between them.
Overarching all the characters though, is a man hiding in
the shadows, someone bent on the destruction of both Anna
and Zach. As the ties connecting Raoul to Anna, Anna to
Zach, Zach to the mystery man (and back to Anna again),
draw tighter and closer, the scene is set for a cataclysmic
showdown. And the key to Anna's and Zach's survival may lie
in the passion that flames between them.
Rebecca York has crafted a complex story that shines with
the brilliance of the tropical ocean surrounding the
Caribbean island in this tale. The action is taut and
suspenseful; the characters are multi-faceted and engaging.
While the book makes perfect sense as a stand-alone, it is
the second in a series (Beyond Control being the first).
Ms. York has the created a compelling world inhabited by
people I want to know more about. Any romance fan who likes
action, suspense, or the paranormal—or a combination of the
three—should do themselves the favor of entering Ms. York's
fascinating and intriguing world of psychic lovers on the

In this sequel to BEYOND CONTROL, Anna Ridgeway's mind-reading nightclub act takes her to the Caribbean Island of Grand Fernandino. She knows she's being stalked by sinister forces. But she doesn't realize that her destiny hangs in the balance when she meets diver Zachary Robinson. Zach and Anna are inexplicably and powerfully drawn to each other--sexually and psychically. As the physical intimacy between them deepens, so do their psi talents. But island shaman, Raoul San Donato, has plans of his own for Anna. Already a powerful force on Grand Fernandino, he plans to kill Zach and bind Anna to him in a shocking ceremony that will make her his consort and consolidate his hold over the island.
