The final ending of Jolie's character and the man she has loved
I would compare it to the other books in the Drake sisters series they are all excellent.
My favorite scene was when Jolie confronted her family about her feelings
This story could have been so much more interesting if Joley's magical gifts were explored.
According to someone's review, this is book 5 of the Drake Sister's series. Maybe Joley is defined in earlier books.However, Audible gives no indication of a order one should follow. I've read several of Christine's books in years past and had forgotten why I don't care for her books. In this story, the first part of the story is filled with sexual tension with Joley's and Illya's individual emotional turmoil on why they could not join sexually. I would have been much more engaged if the reasons they needed to not give in were explored. In the second half of the story all of the sudden they give into desire and are having sex every time you turn around. Ho Humm. Listening to the variations of velvet sheaths, huge erections and otherwise hot & steamy sex gets pretty darn boring. We all have our choice on what we want from a romance novels, but Christine's are not mine. Like the vision of what's sexy, I would prefer a picture painted allowing one's imagination to take you down the erotic road rather than a play by play of each act. In the end, not matter what words she used, the act left nothing for my imagination and was the same scene each time. Boring. If it weren't for the fact I wanted to know for certain what happened to the kidnapped teenager, I would have turned off this story at the beginning of the second half. I was tempted to fast forward just to find out but I stuck it out. In the end, I was let down on how little significance Christine gave this part of the story.
The audio verion is terrific. I loved the way the narrator changed her voice between the men and women. She portrayed the emotions in the book so well that I couldn't help but get completely absorbed in the book. Great narrator.
Ilya Prakenski was my favorite character. He has to be one of the sexiest men on two legs. I want a Russian bodyguard!!!
I don't have a favorite scene but I loved the way Ilya gradually won Jolie's heart and how protective he was of her.
Unfortunately I don't have the luxury of being able to listen to a book in one sitting, but yes, definitely, this is one book I would have loved to be able to listen to in one sitting.
I have read the last book in this series and also the two Sisters of the Heart books and I hope the author, Christine Feehan, writes more of these books. I love all these books. I don't want these to end and there's so much more story to tell. Almost nothing has been said of the Drake Sisters' parents, and I want to know about all the babies that the sisters will have.
