Fast paced romantic thriller. York is a master of the romantic suspense genre.

The love scenes so opposite the slash and kill cruelty makes one sigh at the ecstasy then the peace, the rightness of it. With her skills, Morgan helps Jack come to terms with his PTSD and he helps her find peace about the untimely death of her husband.
Rebecca York makes her characters work hard to get to their happy-ever-after. Bad Nights is a heart-in-throat thriller and a soul-satisfying romance—a fantastic read!

York creates characters who are highly charged, intelligent, adventuresome and multi-talented. Her scenes are full of imaginative plots, hotly sensual love scenes and non-stop action. There is no wonder that I highly recommend DARK MOON as a reviewers choice for thrills and chills!

DAY OF THE DRAGON
The follow-up to last year’s Dragon Moon turns the spotlight on dragon shapeshifter Ramsey Gallagher and the aftermath of his epic battle with his evil twin Vandar. From his introduction, Ramsey has been most intriguing, clearly illuminating York’s gift for character building. The action is fast paced as events take the protagonists on a dangerous journey. York never disappoints!.

York has a brilliant plot, compelling characters and a top-notch paranormal adventure.
–Pat Cooper, RT Book Reviews
A brilliant read. Rebecca York has built a wonderful set of worlds here with rich characters that you become enchanted with. I can’t remember a character I loathed so much as Kenna’s master. Ms. York builds thoughtful dimensional characters that a reader can connect to and take the adventures with. Though this is Kenna and Talon’s story, there was even more to appreciate in the supporting cast of characters. I have to admit I haven’t read previous books and will have to remedy that immediately. However, that didn’t hamper reading the story in the least. If you are a fan then be delighted that another fantastic story is available. If this is your first as it was for this reviewer, DO NOT hesitate. You’ll want the entire series.

GHOST MOON is a fascinating and innovative spin on the werewolf tale. . . Caleb and Quinn’s story is wonderful and seized my attention from the first page. I was so caught up in this remarkable story that I stayed up until the early morning hours in order to get to the end. . . GHOST MOON lived up to all of my expectations. This is a hauntingly beautiful love story that should not be missed!

ELEMENTAL MAGIC is jam-packed with action, romance, and intrigue. The heroes and heroines are delightfully realistic. They are so well described that they come to life in the pages of this remarkable book. I felt each emotion as the characters experienced them, whether it was amusement, sorrow, fear or ecstasy. These four authors from such diverse writing backgrounds came together to create an extraordinary book . . .”
