The sixth of seven magical sisters, Joley Drake has the gift
of spell-singing, a talent that has helped her skyrocket to
fame and fortune.
For the beautiful rock star, life on tour can be
crazy, hectic, and fraught with peril.
The paparazzi hounds her, and the trappings of
success have brought down some of her band members, bringing
the Russian mob to her doorstep, and with them, the one man
she cannot resist.
Ilya Prakenskii has lived his life in isolation, cultivating
his reputation as a ruthless hit man and bodyguard as he
works to bring down his current employer.
His existence had been cold, emotionless, until the
first moment he heard Joleyís voice.
And after meeting Joley in person, he knows she is
the one woman fated to be his.
For Joley isnít the only one with magic in her blood,
and Ilya is prepared to use every seductive trick he can to
keep the songstress into his life, forever.
As danger explodes around the pair, Joley turns to one man
she believes to keep her safe.
But even as passion burns bright between the two,
Joley has a decision to make.
Should she play it safe or risk everything and give
her heart to a man she isnít completely sure she can trust?
Prepare yourselves for a fiery, passionate romance which is,
indeed, as turbulent as the sea.
Christine Feehan has written yet another incredible
installment in her Drake Sisters series.
Ever since book three of the series,
Oceans of Fire,
Iíve waited for the dynamic pairing of Joley Drake and Ilya
lived up to my expectations.
Ilya was dark, dominant, and completely endearing in
his absolute certainty of his love for Joley and his
determination to keep her safe.
Ms. Feehan shows a more vulnerable side to Joley, who on the
surface seems so strong and carefree, and the contrast only
makes her more endearing.
The desire brewing between Ilya and Joley was
spellbinding and pulled me in from the start.
The passionate draw between the two could have
carried the story on its own.
Yet Ms. Feehan drew me in further with the underlying
tenderness between Joley and Ilya as I watched two souls
learn to trust one another with their love.
So often I read books where the heroine, though likeable, is
simply the mechanism for me to fall in love with the hero.
Not so with the Drake sisters.
Each sister is a fully-fleshed, realistic character I
love for herself alone, and Joley is no exception.
Where Ilya is dark and cold with hints of lightness
in his soul, Joley is brilliant, vibrant, with just enough
darkness to understand Ilya.
The two compliment and complete one another, but even
before I fell in love with their romance, I had connected to
both Ilya and Joley for themselves alone.
If I could ask for one thing to be included in this book, it
would be for Ilya to share more of his past with Joley.
As it stands, however, the book was fantastic from
beginning to end and both the characters and the story felt
Ms. Feehan does not disappoint Ė I Joyfully Recommend
