Ok, i'm not a huge fan of all paranormals, but I am wondering if anyone can recommend any that feature psychics and along those lines. I stay away from vampires and werewolves. I'm not into those!

check out a Silhouette Nocturne series called Raintree.  3 books, "Raintree:  Inferno", "Raintree:  Haunted", and "Raintree:  Sanctuary".  The authors are Linda Howard, Linda Winstead Jones, and Beverly Barton (I'm pretty sure that's them).

It's about 3 siblings who all have paranormal powers.  The first can command fire, the second sees and can talk to ghosts, and the third is a healer.  No vamps or werewolves, I promise.  EXCELLENT trilogy, they're all on my keeper shelf and I'm not a huge paranormal fan.

I really enjoyed Arousing Suspicion by Marianne Stillings. Heroine is a psychic dream interpreter but she can only read people if she's touching them.

There's also Dream Man By Linda Howard. Heroine can see crimes as they're happening.

Now You See Her by Linda Howard is about an artist that paints murder scenes she's seen in her dreams.

Theres a series in the harlequin blaze books called sexth sense by kelly st. john....right now there are 3 out and I hope a few more coming as they are based on this family of cousins who are "mediums" ( their are 6 cousins I believe)..each book is about one cousin and how they help a spirit ( also involves the love story and they history of new orleans a bit)

 

Really good!

Arousing Suspisions was really good. Marianne Stillings is one of my favorites.  I just read At The Edge by Cait London It's the 1st in a trilogy about triplets that each have a dif psychic ability.  Their mother is also psychic.  In the first one the youngest is an Empath and falls in love w/a man while trying to find his kidnapped son and coming to terms w/her abilities.  It's was really good.  I read it in a day. I think the next one comes out in April.

Oh yes, the Sex Sense Blaze series is good!  I'm #2 on the WL for the 3rd book.  Can't wait until I get it!

Heather Graham has a couple I think. I have one called Ghost Walk in the TBR pile.  I think it's about a man who can see ghosts.  It's a thriller/romance I think.

some of Nora Roberts and Jayne Ann Krentz's books border on witchcraft, etc probably more 'subtle' compared to some.There's also a mystery series (very little romance but some) by victoria laurie called the psychic eye mysteries.she also just started a ghost hunters series but only 1 book out so far in that one.

Try Christine Feehan's Ghostwalker series.I am a paranormal buff but I enjoy a nice change from the vamps,shifters and whatever odd creatures they have out there.

I like Krentz''s books that she writes as Jayne Castle. They are keepers for me and I re-read them periodically.

I'm with Audry.  I love Jayne Castle's books.  You might want to give them a try.
