Product Description

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. --This text refers to the Mass Market Paperback edition.

I became a fan of Christine Feehan when I first read "Dark Prince," the first of her Carpathian series. Since then I have purchased every book of hers published, and that is a lot of books! But she has been my guilty secret because her prose can be more than a little purple and I sometimes want to count the number of times per page she uses her favourite cliches, "molten lava" and "hot silk" and others any faithful reader would recognize. Nonetheless, I have read and reread her many times and have my favourites, generally determined by how "hot" the male hero might be in my imagination.
With four series and the odd one-off out there the lady has created a lot of heat.
"Water Bound", described as a Sea Haven Novel, is a spin off from the Drake Sisters series.
I was not all that fond of the Drake sisters whom I found rather insipid as were their respective "mates," until Feehan created Ilya Prakensii. She hit the jack pot with him and must have realized it because he appears in the last three novels involving the Drakes.
"Water Bound" continues the story with Lev, Ilya's brother, who was introduced in the previous book "Oceans of Fire." As important, she has given us a heroine unique to a Feehan novel. Perhaps she was influenced by the Liz Salander character in "The Girl with the Dragon Tatoo" or maybe it was just a coincidence but Rikki is autistic. She is seriously incapacitated by her limitations and is not "cured" by the end of the novel. Her fears and pathology are very believable and Lev Prakensii must adjust to her world since she is incapable of becoming "normal." Their love story is the basis of one of the best books Christine Feehan has ever written.
Refreshingly,in this book she has dropped most of her standard metaphors.

Feehan is a new-to-me author. This series, Sisters of the Heart, revolves around six women who meet during grief counselling and are all victims of violent crimes. The women are drawn to each other and decide to jointly purchase a 130-acre farm in Sea Haven, where they share the responsibility of taking care of the property in addition to pursuing their own interests. They work to restore the farm so that it is operational, and each of them receives five acres to herself. They all work together in building each other's homes. Each of the women also has a psychic gift: They all appear to be bound to an element. Their love for each other also binds them together. Although they may not be related by blood, their affinity for each other binds them in their hearts.

Rikki, the protagonist, is a sea urchin diver. She loves the water and is drawn to it. Her autism makes every-day life a challenge: She cannot buy groceries because fluorescent lighting has a negative effect on her, she needs her routines to give her stability, her diet is very limited because she doesn't like certain food textures, and she does not like anyone in her personal space. However, when she is in the water - her element - she is free. There is nothing more calming for her. Rikki cannot create water that isn't there, but she can manipulate the water around her - directing the rain to beat down faster or slower or making the waves increase or decrease in intensity.

As if her autism was not challenging enough, Rikki has had a lot of tragedy in her life. At the age of 13, her parents were killed in a house fire. Rikki was bounced around from foster home to foster home, and two of the foster homes that she lived in were also destroyed by fire although there were no casualties in either incident.

This book was like all Christine's books... suspense filled... I could hardly put it down it was so good. I think they should make her books into movies. They would be more popular than the Twilight series.
