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.

Let me start by saying the posted synopsis for this book is incorrect. Rikki is the one who rescues Lev. ( no Sid in this book) Rikki is an undiagnosed highly functional autistic with a magical ability. The interaction between Lev and Rikki is one of the most interesting I have read about in quite some time. I thoroughly enjoyed this book, my interest never wavered and I would recommend it.
with the twist that only Christine Feehan can bring. I truly enjoy her approach to the unusual elements of a life, a story and book. I can't wait for the rest of this series, I have missed reading about Sea Haven since the Drake sisters all found their mates.
I did finish listening to the book but it was a struggle. The story is a good addition to the Drake Sisters series. The narrator's style, however, is more suited to childrens books. I hope someone persuads Angela Brazil not to narrate adult books... she ruins even a good story.
Christine Feehan does it again an excellent read. Very enjoyable to listen too. I look forward to her next book.
What can I say about this book??? Anything Christine Feehan writes is wonderful. I had my doubts about this series, since its a spin off from the Drake Sisters books she just finished. But, just like with everything else Christine writes, its perfect!!!!
I couldn't put the book down and of course I had to get the audiobook so I could listen to it as I clean house, go for walks, etc.
Well worth the credit and much more.
Was a little boring. Her books are usually very exciting page turners, this one you could miss 2 hours and pick up were you left off. Heavy on 2 way conversation and thoughts, light on action. Don't waste the credits.
I have enjoyed many of Christine Feehan's books. Unfortunately, I found this one boring. Had I been reading rather than listening, a lot of pages would have been skipped. The narrator was below average- at best. Perhaps if she were more skilled/a better actor (such as Davina Porter or Ann Flosnik) my overall rating would be a "little" higher.
I've been waiting, with baited breath, for this novel to come to Audible, (I'm an avid Christine Feehan reader) but the realization is vastly different from the dream.
The story, an somewhat continuation/spin-off of Feehan's Drake Sisters series, lacked substance. The premise, a story about another of the gifted Prakenskii brothers coming to Sea Haven where he is 'saved' by an unusual woman, was more a case of 'her' story instead of his. His character wasn't never really fleshed out, and as for the woman's character of a kind of fluctuating autistic, I found unbelievable.
The only parts of the story that made this a 'Sea Haven' novel were the vague references to the Drake weddings, the death of Stravros Gratsos and sinking of his' yacht, and introduction of Jonas Harrington and Hannah (Drake) Harrington into the story; otherwise, this read like a racy Harlequin romance.
Luv Christine Feehan, but I wanted my money back for this one. I wrote here directly because I was too disappointed with this one. The book was very drawn out unneccesarily. It was really unrealistic. There was too much focus on ther heroine. One of the very few I have not reread or relistened to with no intention of doing so.
