The last thing Sid remembered was being enlisted to protect a vulnerable young woman in the coastal town of Sea Haven. Then, as if in some nightmare, he was lost in the swirling currents of the ocean, and sucked deeper into a freezing black eddy. Just as quickly, he was saved - pulled ashore by a beautiful stranger. Her name is Rikki, a sea-urchin diver in Sea Haven. Soon they will be bound by tantalizing secrets, which will engulf them both in a whirlpool of passion and danger.

Hard to put down in several places. A good story and good set up for next story.
Love the Sea Haven series. This second "Families" story is as entertaining as the first "families" story. Due to the inability to remember where or not Angela Brazil narrated the story well, I am unable to pass judgment, but will review in the next book of the series.

Well, Christine Feehan knows something about what women want, and what is the essence of romantic fiction. One man, filled with purpose and integrity and courage, whose entire life centers around one single woman....his lifemate. He would kill for her, die for her. This theme, which is repeated over and over again, is incredibly romantic. It works. It makes for extremely satisfying.
Angala Brazil did a very great job with the narration of this book:)
Yes because I love the series and listening is my only option but I really don't like the narrator or the sound quality.
Disregarding the main characters (they are always chosen but I do love Rikki) I have to say I have always loved Inez.
No, not only does she sound as though she is readibg a child's storybook half the time, but worse she completely screws up character names. Its Stavros, not Stravos among others.
I really like the fact that the author took a chance on writing a main character who is on the Autism spectrum.
The audio gets really weird when there is telepathic communication. I guess they were going for atmosphere but it really messed with me and I wish I had been warned.
I liked the mystery. The people and conversations are interesting. I will read the next book.
This book is pretty unique. I am not sure what to compare it to.
I was really caught up in the mystery.
The overall plot was actually intriguing and the first hour or so of the book was an enjoyable set-up of an interesting and flawed (but likeable) female character. However, after the entrance of the male lead in the story, it quickly began to veer in an unbelievable and improbable direction. After repeatedly thinking "oh, puleeze!" and "no she didn't!", I knew that this story was not for me. Judging from the first couple of hours of reading, this book is better suited for those who enjoy the Harlequin romance genre.

The characters grabbed a hold of my heart and didn't let go. I already owned the paperback so I knew I loved this book. There are some stories worth re-reading and this is one of them. True love concurring what would seem to be insurmountable obstacles and making the two individuals whole in a natural progession of events and feelings. Since I work on a computer all day, my eyes get blurry long before I want to put some books down. With Audible, I can "read" as long as I want!
So many books...so little time! :)
Christine Feehan is new author for me as well as Angela Brazil as narrator...and this first book was pretty good for a first. I was surprised that it had a magical element behind it...but I felt it made it even better!
The characters I thought were great! Riki isn't your average girl in so many ways, and she never ceases to surprise you. Despite her condition, she is very strong willed, brave, and courageous when she needs to be. Sid (aka Lev or Levi) on the other hand, I admit made me nervous, but he proves himself in here time and time again despite who he was before Riki.
There are moments when you aren't sure where things are headed...but the love and sparks (literally) keep you going in the story. The magic that Riki and Lev share is great, and the many intimate moments are very well done.
The only thing that I didn't care for was the amount of repetition. I found Christine Feehan said a lot of things over and over...granted to get the message across...but it got to the point where it was annoying.
Overall though...good story...good narration...good romance! Not a great...but definitely good and worth a listen! Would give it 3 1/2 if I could. :)
Yes - it was an interesting story with a few twists and turns.
Yes - It had an interesting story line.
Yes - the reader was good.
I'm not sure.
