|KcLu’s An Uncommon Sense Review|
Is there such a thing as a sixth sense? I have no proof one way or the other, but I admit that anything to do with the paranormal fascinates me. I’ve been to a dozen different mediums over the years and kept an open mind as to the information they’ve given me. Some of it’s been too general, some plain wrong, but there have been enough spine-tingly moments of incredible accuracy to keep me interested. I love watching mediums on the TV too, and I’ve been to several live shows. I’ve often wondered how mediums cope with some of the disturbing information they receive after they go home, and that’s what got me thinking about an idea for books featuring heroes with very “special” talents.
In An Uncommon Sense, the first in the Sensual Healing series by Samhain Publishing, Ash Rutherford is a famous medium who does shows across the whole of New Zealand. He loves his job, but he runs into problems when he falls for Grace Fox, a science schoolteacher whose scepticism proves a barrier to their blossoming relationship. Ash has to try to convince her that he’s not delusional and he’s not a fraud out to trick her. But it’s not until he contacts her late father and tells her details that only her dad would know that she really begins to believe him.
In Making Sense, due out at the end of the year, Nate is a healer who discovers that he can’t save everyone he lays hands on, and a bad experience has left him traumatised and unable to use his exceptional talents. It’s up to nurse Freya to show him that sometimes helping people is about comforting and just being there, rather than always about making them better.
Although the books have a paranormal slant, they’re still very much contemporary romances. So if you have a sneaky passion for the supernatural, and you like heroes who have a little extra something, An Uncommon Sense is out on April 3rd – why not take a look?
