My new book cover is here, and I'm very excited about it! It really reflects the tone of the book, which will be out January 2007. If you'd like to read some excerpts from TOUCHED BY DARKNESS, along with my article on Atlantis, please visit my website at

Thank you, cover fairies!

Great Enchiladas

Hey all, I thought I'd share my new favorite recipe. I like it because it's fast and easy (an absolute prerequisite for me), delicious, versatile, and goes very well with those summer margaritas! Here it is:

Bean Enchiladas (Vegetarian, but not Vegan)

**1 to 1-1/2 cans (15 ounce) refried beans (I like the black beans the best), or you can make your own beans.
**1 8-oz package cream cheese
**1 small can (around 4 ounces) chopped green chiles.
**Regular or garlic salt to taste.
Mix all these ingredients together, adding more beans if you need them. Then spoon onto:
**10-12 whole wheat or whole grain tortillas
Roll up the tortillas, place in a glass baking dish (spray with non-stick spray first) and cover with:
**2 medium cans (8.5 ounces) of green enchilada sauce (or red, if you prefer)
**Grated cheese, your choice, for the final layer.
Bake at 400 degrees for about 25 minutes (note: you might want to wait to add the cheese until the last 10 minutes or so).

If you prefer meat in your enchiladas, substitute about two-three cups chopped cooked chicken for the beans. They're just as good.

Oh, yes, and don't forget the margaritas or a Tecate or Corona beer to go with them!

Happy eating,

Gotta love those bad-boy werewolves!

Rebecca York’s bad-boy werewolves have returned, this time with Lance Marshall’s story. If you like paranormal elements, a fast-paced story, and great sexual tension, check out Rebecca’s “Moon” books. You’ll be glad you did. Details below.

Happy reading!

SHADOW OF THE MOON by Rebecca York
(Berkley, June 6, 2006)

Lance Marshall has a nose for great news stories-not surprising, since he's aided by his werewolf abilities. Now he's prowling outside an ultra-exclusive Washington, D.C. nightclub-"The Castle." But he is not alone. Savannah Carpenter wants to know how her sister ended up in a coma, and she knows that The Castle has something to do with it. But when Lance and Savannah pretend to be lovers to gain entrance, they learn that deception and unbridled lust can be a dangerous combination.


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.


The York werewolf moon novels contains several excellent paranormal romantic suspense tales (see CRIMSON MOON), but SHADOW OF THE MOON may be the best of the series so far. The action-packed story line is fast-paced and filled with sexual tension accentuated by the danger that the audience will taste as if we have the enhanced sense of a werewolf. The lead couple is a delightful pairing as they investigate the goings on at the club, what happened to Charlotte, and the attraction between them in a gripping thriller. – Harriet Klausner

Fans get to meet yet another Marshall boy in Rebecca York’s latest novel about the werewolf clan, SHADOW OF THE MOON.
This time it's freelance reporter Lance Marshall and he's scented out a story on an very exclusive D.C. establishment that he's heard rumors about, the Eighteen Club.. . .
As if werewolves, psychic abilities and lifemates aren't enough, York adds yet another element to her werewolf series in SHADOW OF THE MOON. It makes for excellent reading. --

York’s highly popular werewolf tales take an even more intriguing turn in this new story. The sexual tension is taut and the story crisp, which keeps up the momentum. The small side plot is an engrossing teaser for the next chapter in this quite compelling saga. 4 ½ stars – Romantic Times
