Just like Claire, Darl James has mind travel ability and just like Claire his life was empty. But Darl knew there was someone special out there for him and he was determined to find her.
Together Claire and Darl compliment each other with their mind travel abilities. Where Claire's ability was limited to her being able to travel to places, Darl's ability was limited to being able to travel back home from where ever he was. Together their abilities are stronger and it also makes their lives more exciting, but not all of their newly found excitement is positive. Claire and Darl find their lives in danger from those who want to exploit their gifts and some who want to silence them.
Intimate Beings, the second book in Jessica Inclan's Second Romance series, is just as unique and intriguing as the first book of this series. Ms. Inclan's imagination is great and I like how again the hero and heroine are two peas in a pod who need each other to be whole. It was obvious that Darl and Claire belonged together, but I would have liked them to have more time to really get to know each other. Even though I felt everything moved at a very quick and high intense pace throughout the story, it was still a very entertaining read. I enjoyed Intimate Beings; it was a satisfying addition to the Second Romance series.

Intimate Beings is the 2nd in the 3 part trilogy by amazing author Jessica Inclan. Claire Edwards is a beautiful teacher who has never fit in. She's never had a serious relationship and wonders if there's something wrong with her. Part of the reason is because Claire has a strange talent: She can think of a place and instantly transported there! The problem, however, is that she can't transport herself back. To add to her troubles she thinks she must be going crazy when a handsome man suddenly appears in her car.
But Darl James knows Claire. In fact, he has been hunting for her existence every since he discovered he had a twin. Twins are perfect mates, who have complementary powers. While Claire has the ability to transport herself anywhere she wants, Darl can only transport himself home. But having these abilities is dangerous as both are quickly on the run from those intenting on either killing or exploiting their talents.
The world that Jessica Inclan has built is fascinating and worth returning to, however, the author's nonstop action is difficult to follow for readers not familiar with her first book. What I found special about her first book is that I loved discovering each character's special ability and the complimentary power of their twin. There was a real feeling that the twins belonged together. I did not get this sense of connection and tension between the two main characters as I did with the first book. The early development of the characters relationship seemed somewhat rushed and there was some time where they were separated.Read more ›
The heroine of this book is Claire Edwards but she's also known as Sophia when she was a young child on the other planet. She has the ability to go anywhere on Earth as long as she knows what the place looks like before she thinks about going there and is there. She has never told anyone about her special ability but her problem is that she can get to any place she wants but she can't get back home the same way she has to find another way. On top of that she can't bring anything with her except herself and the clothes on her back so that means no money either. Then an intensely attractive man who suddenly materializes in her car one day is any indication, Claire's not the only one with a special ability. Ever since Darl James learned of his true origins, he has been searching for his partner and life mate, the one whose gift will complement and complete his own.Read more ›

I classify the book as a Science Fiction Romance. This is the first book I have read by the author. Though it is the second book of a trilogy, it read well as a stand-alone. Read morePublished on May 13, 2012 by txblaize
The beginning of the book was interesting and created an interest to continue to read until Darl appeared. There was no build up to this and just seemed to drop into the story. Read morePublished on May 9, 2009 by N. Tubb
