The always brilliant Feehan launches an offshoot series from her recently completed Drake Sisters saga. In the Sea Haven stories, elements of nature will be a key focus, along with an exciting combination of mystery, danger and magic. In Rikki Sitmore, Feehan has created an inspiring heroine who faces the challenge of autism. Her hero, Lev Prakenskii, has his own immense baggage, so the collision of their lives provides readers with an action-packed and romantic tale. Awesome as always!

While diving for sea urchins, Rikki is hit by a rogue wave and discovers a man deep in the swirling currents. Rikki rescues the wounded man, who has large gaps in his memory. The one thing Lev knows is that he must not be discovered alive. A reluctant Rikki takes Lev to the property she shares with her five “sisters of the heart.” All her life, Rikki has had an affinity for water and fears fire, for its devastation has left a tragic imprint on her life. Both are stalked by menaces from their pasts; can they find a way to triumph? (JOVE, Aug., 480 pp., $7.99)

Feehan opens a new series which is tied to her Drake Sisters series. Again we find ourselves in Sea Haven. The story picks up where the last Drake Sister books leaves off. Lev Prakenskii literally drops into diver, Rikki Sitmore's life. Neither realizes that their lives are about to change and they will become tied together.

This is a poignant story about a couple learning how to compromise and how to love. To complicate things, they have to face bagage from their past which comes to haunt them.

As always, Christine Feehan gives us a good story.

Water Bound is a compelling and well written story.

Rikki is a sea-urchin diver in Sea Haven and has rescued Lev Prakenskii from certain death. He is helpless and injured in the depths of a cold ocean. Although, she is a loner by nature and circumstance she feels compelled to help this stranger.

Each of these characters has tremendous obstacles to overcome in their trust of each other . However, the author gives us compelling insights and reasons why their relationship might work.

You are rooting that Rikki is able to overcome her aversion to have anyone in her orbit but “the sisters of her heart.“ Lev has to accept that he is not only the dark, cold person he believes himself to be.

Two unlikely people, who find themselves while looking into each other eyes.

And to think I did not even mention the action that is packed into the book.
