"The queen of paranormal romance."
About the Author
I live in the beautiful mountains of Lake County, California. I have always loved hiking, camping, rafting and being outdoors. I’ve also been involved in the martial arts for years—I hold a third degree black belt, instruct in a Korean karate system, and have taught self-defense. I am happily married to a romantic man who often inspires me with his thoughtfulness. We have a yours, mine, and ours family, claiming eleven children as our own. I have always written books, forcing my ten sisters to read every word, and now my daughters read and help me edit my manuscripts. It is fun to take all the research I have done on wild animals, raptors, vampires, weather, and volcanoes and put it together with romance.See all Product Description

If I pay for a new book, particularly following six prior books that whet my appitite, I do not want to be horrified. If I wanted to read about misery, I'd read the news, not fiction.
This book is a blatant example of loose ends. At the end the bad guy bikers who want our hero dead have not been dealt with, a prior hero has found one of his six brothers, and his fate is left hanging as well.
I realize a writer wants to write a follow-up book, but you can still give every book a proper ending.
I will not say that the book was a total bomb, it definitely did have its
moments, a lot of ground was covered, but it was rushed which makes the story line questionable. Would I buy it again? Yes. Why? because it is a Feehan book, it is the end of the series, and it could be a link to a (I hope) series about the seven brothers.
Jackson will help her with her fears, he will show her what real love is and her sisters wil help heal her scars with magic and family love. All of them knows that this enemy wil not give up and in the end, the men have a plan to "eliminate" this threat. When the time comes, the Drake sisters will face that treath with something far more powerful than rage and negative power.
I loved the story, I loved the house "rearranging" itself, I loved the gifts from the sisters and I think it was a really good ending for this series. The introduction of Ilya's brother was very well done too.
Sea Haven series is one that I will read again in the future.

Elle's story was shocking. In the previous 6 books she is built up to be a real heroine, strong, smart, powerful. In this book she was made to be a weakling in my opinion. But the thing that was the worst was the total destruction of such a great character. I feel like I'm morning this character. And I feel like I was cheated out of the right story for her.
OMG, the sexual abuse was unbearable to read. I felt absolute rage at the character Stavros and couldn't wait to see him get his. I wanted to weep over the evil of it all.
Even more awful the fact that she made Elle willing to jump into bed with Jackson was revolting and unrealistic even though we all know he was her intended for several of the books. I can't imagine a women who lost her virginity though brutal rape and then survived a month of more rape and sexual torture, would want to sleep with someone else so quickly even to erase a bad memory is just beyond my grasp. And I don't give a damn about magical healing. What the HELL was Christine Feehan thinking?
I know I jump around a lot in this review and hope it makes sense but this book caused a lot of rage and sorrow in me.
I just feel so cheated out of their story. It shouldn't have been like this.
Reader beware this one will break your heart.
Stavros Gratsos, is a well-to-do Greek businessman involved in trafficking humans, Elle Drake must try her best to blend in with the social scene as she goes undercover to investigate. Yet, there is something strange about this man. Elle, now working under the guise of Sheena MacKenzie, is unable to use her psychic abilities on him - and thus unable to read his being. The book falls apart when the youngest Drake sister is forced to Stavros' private island.
Distraught and confused, Deputy Sheriff Jackson Deveau - the man that loves Elle, does all he can to find and return Elle to Sea Haven. Concerns are further raised when he learns that her six older sisters are unable to telepathically link to Elle. Will they be able to locate her? And if so, what has happened to her? Who is Stavros Gratsos? And how is he able to block their psychic abilities? I will stop there, but there are some very graphic and disturbing scenes coming up.
With all Christine Feehan books...the characters are drawn like an artist painting a masterpiece - and for this book that is a problem - the book also can overwhelm the reader with the number of characters in it - there are a lot! But the villain...Oh, the villain. The villain is one that is so depraved that all seven sisters (and more) are needed to bring his reign of sadistic terror to an end.
If you are new to the series, Hidden Currents (Drake Sisters, Book 7) is not the book you want. The characters and plot are so disturbing that you'll find yourself lost without having read the earlier books. If you are caught up with the series, then book 7 was a bad way to end a great series..............Skip it, and read the book I would highly recommend that blends mysticism and romance together flawlessly is JoAnna Wylde's novel Price of Pleasure-- Price of Pleasure -- that is, if you are one of the few that haven't read it yet.
As others have pointed out there are huge unanswered questions and plot holes left to fill. I'm sure she'll be continuing the series with Ilya's brothers with the biker gang from Jackson's past the new recurring bad guy now that she's killed of the Reverend.
If you must finish the series, get it from the library.
