Publisher's Summary

The star: Joley Drake was born with a legacy of unexpected magical gifts, but it was the gift of singing that made her an overnight sensation - a rock-and-roll goddess trapped by fame, fortune, and ambition. Heated by the flush of success, Joley could have any man she wanted. But there¿s only man who can give her what she really needs.

The bodyguard: Ilya Prakenskii, cool, inscrutable, dangerously sexy, and working in the shadow of his infamous reputation - that of a secret Russian hit man on the payroll of a notorious mobster. He's the last man Joley should get close to, yet when her life is threatened on tour, she has nowhere left to turn. But in the seductive safe keep of Ilya's embrace, is Joley really as secure as she imagines?

    "This is Book 5 of the Drake Sisters Series"

    The Drake Sisters series is most enjoyable if you can listen to the books in the order they were written.
    Book #1 = Magic in the Wind;
    Book #2 = Twilight Before Christmas;
    Book #3 = Oceans of Fire;
    Book #4 = Dangerous Tides;
    Book #5 = Safe Harbor;
    Book #6 = Turbulent Sea;
    Book #7 = Hidden Currents.

    Story
    "The Best One Yet!"

    I have read all of the Drake sisters stories but Libby's and I have to say this one is the best thus far. The passion in this story is unbelievable. Illya and Joley has such chemistry between them you can just feel it.
    Illya was so true to Joley despite her contrariness. Once I read Libby's story I will be listening to the Drake sisters again, but this time in order.
    Despite the violence in this story, it is the passion and love story of their coming together that makes this story so interesting.

    I want to give kudos to Alyssa Bresnahan, as she did a wonderful job with the narrating of these stories.

    Story
    "Best of Feehan-complex with riveting action,"

    I've listened to well over 20 audiobooks in the past few months including a lot of science, non-fiction, and paranormal and regular romance. This is by far the best. And of all Christine Feehan's book, this was the most interesting and compelling. The performer did a very good job w/ the Russian accents and pronounciation.

    Joely isn't your stereotypical wishy-washy, oh-dominate-me you big dark lug you. The sparks were immediate (LOL) and intense and he played cameos in the previous two in this series (a great intriguing build up of this character before staring in his own).

    I found Joely to be admirable, fun, but struggles with the usual things as well as her own "darkness". For those lucky few souls in the world who find that person who KNOWs you and is your complement in the big things, this book will definitely ring a bell.

    The action is non-stop. One of Feehan's hallmarks is her well-crafted hand-to-hand combat or conflict scenes which she teaches and is personally belted in--it shows. Joely is at times vulnerable, confused, betrayed, and at the right time, is jocular, confident in how she knows how to handle herself, and her innate leadership/nurturing skills. But the conflict is constant, with very unexpected danger popping up often enough to establish Ilya as thee ultimate salt of the earth male and deadly operative. His character displays the calculated patience and wisdom to wait on Joely, but also to keep pushing her beyond her fears and comfort zone. Talk about self-mastery!

    Of all Christine's stories (I've read all but 3 or 4), this character set is the most interesting and truly seem to be two united halves of a whole.

    The story, and especially all the supporting cast, were wonderful and I am personally intrigued with Ilya's character. Enough to buy the previous book in which he cameo's and interacts w/ the lead. The way Feehan treats the band members and their own challenges I think creates even more texture and suspense.

    If you are looking for a memorable book, with intensity, high action, some intriguing built-in but not too overt paranormal elements and a realistic romance by an author who really master's many subjects (lending good authenticity) this is the one for you.

    "Fantastic!"

    I have read many of C Feehan's books but this is by far one of my favorites! The storyline is compelling with several surprises but the main draw is the fantastic character development of the male lead. I have since gone back and listened at least twice more to this story.
    The narrator is the best I've heard! She is able to give life to each character with a believable voice for each one and, in fact, creating a very sexy (and spot-on) russian accent for the male. She also takes up the emotion, breathless sexual anxiety or rage, with a conviction that makes the listener feel they are experiencing it as well.
    Hope to hear more from this narrator in coming Feehan audios!

    I can find a book to love in any genre -- a beautifully written classic, an interesting mystery or sci-fi, a trashy romance. Bring it!

    Story
    "Like waiting for water to boil"

    STORY (romance) - I loved the summary of this book and it's rated 4.3. It's well-written and performed, so what the heck happened? For one thing, I got absolutely sick and tired of hearing Ilya and Joley talk about how wonderful the other was and how much they needed each other, and then there's all the angst about whether or not they should be together. I finally increased the speed to 2X and then ... yes, I could follow the story on 3X speed without getting lost at all. It's the same $hit hour after hour!

    There are a couple things about the book that are good, but there isn't enough of either to rescue the story as a whole. Joley is a successful rock star and I enjoyed the band-life atmosphere. Ilya is a sexy Russian bodyguard, and there is a mafia-type plot line to the story which is also pretty good. There just needs to be more story to balance all the stupid syrupy drama. Supposedly this is a fantasy/romance, but the fantasy part is just a telepathic connection between a few main characters. They can "think-talk" to each other. Then there's a special mark on Joley's hand that, when she rubs it, she can get Ilya sexually aroused. Give me a break.

    Finally, the mafia action picks up and things get pretty exciting the last hour or so. The ending is romantic and touching ... until the author overdid that, too. If this book had been about four or five hours long, I probably would have really liked it.

    PERFORMANCE - She did a good job. I really liked the sexy male voice when she was performing Ilya. Nice job, Alyssa!

    OVERALL - This book stands alone, though I believe it is actually Book 6 in a series about Joley's family members. There's some cursing and explicit sex scenes, but not a ton of either. There is some violence, but it's not the thrust of the story and the author doesn't dwell on gory details. I would only recommend this for females who like sappy love stories. Men would not like this book, and I didn't either.

    I love to read. I love all genres but romance in particular. The hotter and steamy and sexier book is the more I want to read it.

    "Wow, I love every part of this story"
    Would you consider the audio edition of Turbulent Sea to be better than the print version?

    No, but it works real well with the printed version. I can see both characters through the narrator.


    What was one of the most memorable moments of Turbulent Sea?

    When IIya appears in the bus to help Joley get to sleep and how loving he is with her even though he tries to resist her. This is my favorite story of the series.


    Which character – as performed by Alyssa Bresnahan – was your favorite?

    Ilya is my favorite he is so strong and confident and yet he is loving and caring toward others. I love the spark between Joley and him.


    Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

    When IIya tells Joley about his childhood and he gets emotional. After all he has been through, he still puts himself out there for others.

    "Turbulent Sea"

    I honestly do not believe Christine Feehan could write a bad book this one is part of a series which I love to read or listen to. So if you like Feehan you will like this one.
