about

Return to Sea Haven in the first novel in #1 New York Times bestselling author Christine Feehan’s Sisters of the Heart series, as a diver and the man she rescues are engulfed in a storm of dangerous desire.

On the shores of Sea Haven, six women touched by great loss have come together in a sisterhood strengthened by the elements—a bond each will need as new love and danger enter their lives...

The last thing Lev Prakenskii remembers is being lost in the swirling currents of the ocean. Just as quickly, he is saved—pulled ashore by a beautiful stranger. But Lev has no memory of who he was—or why he seems to possess the violent instincts of a trained killer. All he knows is that he fears for his life, and the life of his unexpected savior.

Rikki has always felt an affinity for the ocean and the relentless flow of the tides. Now, she can’t deny the seductive pull of the enigmatic man she rescued. But soon they will be bound by something even stronger: the tantalizing secrets that threaten to engulf them both in a whirlpool of dizzying passion and inescapable danger.
Christine Feehan is the #1 New York Times bestselling author of the Carpathian series, the GhostWalker series, the Leopard series, the Shadow Riders series, and the Sea Haven novels, including the Drake Sisters series and the Sisters of the Heart series.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Lovely To anyone who has ever know a high functioning autistic this book will remind you of how special and brilliant they are, limited only by our lack of understanding of how chaotic our world can be to those whos senses are acute. A truly lovely romance.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from s'okay This was an okay read for the weekend. I did not find it as good as the Drake sisters series or the Ghost Walker series. It was like CF was trying too hard to make another series just as good - continuing with more women who have special gifts. She already told that story with the Drake sisters and now it's time to move on. The characters weren't as strong and the story was rather boring.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from so so I must say that I like the Sea Haven Series. I only have one prob. with this book. The way it is written it seems to me that Rikki has OCD and not autism. I have two members in my extensive family that have autism. One mild case and one severe. People with autism do not have the ability to function on the level it is described in the book. True they can excel well in one area but they don't live or act as described in the book. AUtism as the doctors describe it is only a fancy word for brain damage, which another doctor defined it as. I realize it is only a story, but when bringing actual life happenings into a story one should stick as much as possible to the facts.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from A most pleasant surprise I have an odd relationship with Ms. Feehan. Either I adore her stories or I can't stand them. I don't like the Carpathian books at all, at all. And I read Lair of the Lion and HUGE yuckers. But still I didn't totally abandon her and tried Wild Rain and loved it and then read the first couple of the Ghostwalker series and really enjoyed them. But for some reason she kind of dropped off my radar and I hadn't read any other of her books for a while. I'll be honest and say what intrigued me about this book was reading that the heroine had a form of high functioning autism. I thought this worked very well in the hero in Jennifer Ashley's The Madness of Lord Ian MacKenzie so I was curious as to how it would work in the heroine in a contemporary. And I'm quite pleased to say for me it worked very well. There is no question that Rikki Sitmore has her share of 'quirks'. She had a terribly sad childhood, losing her parents at an early age due to fire and having the nightmare of fires follow and destroy after that. She has finally found a home in Sea Haven, the same town setting as the Drake Sister series. She has found a family of sisters now; not sisters by blood, but sisters of the heart. She also has a successful job as a sea urchin hunter. She is drawn to water in many mysterious ways. For example, when having nightmares about the fires that have destroyed her life, all faucets in her home mysteriously turn on. She can manipulate rain and she is never completely at home unless she is diving in the ocean. Her life is going along as well as it can considering her quirks until she rescues a strange man in the middle of a ocean disruption. I know some of this sounds odd - it's odd to write it, but trust me, when reading this book, it made perfect sense. The man she rescues, Lev Prakenskii, is peculiar in his own right. He has no memory for quite some time, but he does know he is a dangerous man and one who should stay far, far away from Rikki. But he quickly becomes one of my favourite kinds of heroes, the kind that is wrecked for the heroine. He realizes that he is no good for Rikki, yet he can't leave her. Because of the fires that have dogged her all her life, Rikki is afraid she's been the one setting them, but Lev knows she couldn't possibly be the one and he is determined to keep her safe and take care of her. For example, she is very sensitive to different textures of food and exists almost exclusively on peanut butter. She refuses to allow others into her 'space' whether it's her boat, her house or even to the use of her dishes. But Lev 'gets' her and is determined to both protect her and expand her narrow live. He is constantly challenging her to move outside her narrow comfort zone but always there for her in case she stumbles. This is an odd book due to the nature of the heroine, but I adored it. Rikki is a heroine I really enjoyed; one who has had to adjust to the world because of her differences, but has done so very well. She's a tad to prickly at times for me to keep this book from being a five, but she is a very strong heroine and I really liked her. And Lev makes for a mighty fine hero. He has done some very violent things in his past. He's been pretty ruthless, but then again because of his history he has had to be. But he is totally redeemed by his acceptance and respect and protectiveness of Rikki. The reader knows he will die to protect her and as already mentioned, he is totally wrecked for her. This book was a real treat!

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Beautiful Rikki is a sea-urchin diver and while out diving she encounters a stranger. Lev is rescued by Rikki, but having hit his head he has no memory of the events leading up to him being found or who he is. After Rikki brings him to her home, he discovers that one he is very attracted to Rikki and two he is a trained killer and someone will be after him. Rikki has her own nightmares to contend with and together they find that they are each others light. This book was definitely not what I expected. Christine Feehan delves into the subject of autism and although I do not know a lot of facts on it, I felt she did an incredible job writing about it and incorporating it into this story. I think the strongest and most enduring moments in this novel is how Lev helps Rikki deal with day to day issues that for a person with autism must be incredibly stressful. Lev and Rikki's story is beautiful, like the the sun shinning through the clouds after the rain. It may not be my favourite Christine Feehan novel but beautiful none the less.
