Intuition by Anna Durand (spotlight, excerpt, review, and GIVEAWAY)


by Anna Durand


: paranormal romance



Torn apart by their haunted pasts, Grace Powell and her fiancĂ© David Ransom are struggling to reclaim their passionate bond and build a normal life — one without danger and paranormal powers. But David can't renounce his obsession with hunting down Karl Tesler, who abducts and tortures psychics. David endured Tesler's tactics himself, but despite what Grace believes, he's not out for revenge.

Tesler covets her unprecedented abilities and her mysterious connection to a source of limitless psychic power. David will do anything — even abandon and lie to her — to protect Grace from Tesler.

With a psychic stalker on her trail, Grace charges into a desperate mission to uncover the truth about David's obsession. But Tesler's agents are closing in on her, and a terrifying new enemy is rising…

As events drive Grace and David toward a battle of epic proportions, they must risk everything — their relationship, their lives, and even their souls — to defeat an enemy who wields unspeakable psychic power.



With the revolver in hand, she sprinted out of the bedroom, down the hallway, through the kitchen, and into the living room. Vacant. All vacant. She rushed back to the bedroom and dug through the closet, scoured the dresser, even dropped onto her belly to investigate the space under the bed. No cameras. No stealthy intruders. Not a damn thing. Which left her with one unthinkable possibility.

Maybe she should call the police.

What for? They couldn't help her with this kind of problem.

"You belong with me."

She jumped. Her head smacked into the bed frame. She clutched the gun tighter. Where had the voice come from?

No, no, no, not again. Nausea swelled in her stomach, bile rising high in her throat. The voice did not originate in this room, or from outside. The source was much, much closer. Someone rammed the words into her mind.

A psychic intruder just hacked her brain.

My review:

3.75 out of 5 stars

Intuition by Anna Durand is Book Two of the ‘Psychic Crossroads’ series and centers on the ongoing struggle waged by psychics Grace Powell and David Ransom against the evil Karl Tesler and his ilk. The fear of their abilities and temptation of the Golden Power adds to the complications of the fight, and the difficulty of distinguishing friend from foe may make the horrible visions Grace is seeing come all too true.

This intriguing paranormal story features psychics with a myriad of talents but evidently a dearth of training in the use or extent of these remarkable abilities. I think I was a little handicapped by not having read the first story in the series, so the fears and conflicts being experienced by both Grace and David were a bit confusing to figure out at first. I am fascinated by the idea of psychic phenomena, and it was fun to see some of the mind powers being utilized in the story but I thought there was somewhat of a comic book quality to some of the events with the evil villain (or villains) threatening or using torture and mayhem on victims who are erratic in both their ability to use their powers as well as their recuperative powers or lack thereof.

The connection between the main characters was lovely, although a little frustrating as they were still working out the parameters of their relationship even though they were already engaged, but it was nice to watch them learn to accept each other for who they were and grow as a couple. I think this story will be enjoyed by those who like the excitement and suspense of paranormal stories with megalomaniacs who are being opposed by a loyal but not well-trained group who must find a way to access their powers and work together.
