Hidden Currents by Christine Feehan

This is the last of the Drake Sisters novels. and it is one of the best in the series i personally feel. here's the synopsis and i'll tell you why i feel that way.
from afar, sheriff jackson deveau has always loved elle drake, the youngest telepath of seven sisters. after a long time away, she's finally returning to the small coastal village of sea haven. but someone has other plans for elle, someone who doesn't want her to make it back.
when elle fails to arrive home, her disappearance strikes fear in the hearts of everyone who loves her. now it's left to jackson to uncover the mystery of elle's vanishing and rescue her from an unseen danger. but sea haven is no longer safe for anyone, and it will take the powers of all the drake sisters and their men to survive the oncoming storm.
ever since i started reading the drake sisters novels although not in the correct order, i've been interested in elle as she was always mysterious in her sister's book and also, she was the strongest among her sisters. that's two reasons there.:P the third reason is that there seemed to be some chemistry between jackson and elle and i wanted to explore/see that. hehe the fourth reason is that this was an explosive, exciting and thrilling read. lastly, she brought out the feelings of the characters, their emotions, their pain forward so well, i felt them like it was mine.
whenever it got to more serious, mentally draining parts, i was wheezing practically at what they had to go through. this is one of the books that has made me feel this much. i mean all the books i've read have, but this was more emotional for me. it made me think that there are people who have actually had all this happen to them. well maybe not everything, but something as bad as these. i could only sympathise. it made me look at reality a little closer. well i hope you enjoy this book as much as i have.

Turbulent Sea by Christine Feehan

Well, this is the sixth in the Drake sisters novels. And it was one of my favourites, simply because our hero is the cool and silent but strong - real strong - type. Add in the psychically gifted to his list of talents and there we have one yummy hero. Hehe


Recently things have got me thinking. By just reading these novels, (well I don’t really borrow others anyway like general knowledge and all as I’m more interested in novels so far) am I just trying to escape from reality for even a little while? Or is it because it helps me to relax my mind and just enjoy the happy evers in books. But oh well, whichever it is, I’m definitely enjoying reading them right now. Here’s the synopsis for this as from the back of the book.

The star: joley drake was born with a legacy of unexpected magical gifts but it was the gift of singing that made her an overnight sensation-a rock-and-roll goddess trapped by fame, fortune and ambition. Heated by the flush of success, joley can have any man she wants. And there’s only one man who can really give her what she wants.

The bodyguard: ilya prakenskii, cool inscrutable, dangerously sexy and working in the shadows of his infamous reputation – that of a secret Russian hitman on the payroll of a notorious mobster. He’s the last man joley should get close to, yet when her life is in threatened on a tour, she has nowhere left to turn to. But in the seductive safety of ilya’s embrace, is joley really as secure as she imagines?

I love novels that especially have a bodyguard theme. Hehe and they fall in love and so on. I don’t know why, I just do. We also have a broader insight on a star’s life; how it is in general. There are seven sisters and all their books are linked. I haven’t read all but some I have and I’ve thoroughly enjoyed them. Hope you do to.
