Editorial Reviews

Library Journal

Gifted with amazing musical talents, rock-'n'-roll star Joley Drake seems to have it all: fame, fortune, and the adulation of her fans. Enter a predatory preacher, a missing 13-year-old, and an evil Russian mobster, and there is more trouble brewing than Joley can handle on her own. Her only hope is Ilya Prakenskii, a lethal, powerfully gifted bodyguard who can keep her safe but is also her greatest danger as she tries to resist the intense attraction that links them. A talented, conflicted heroine and an alpha hero who is not what he seems are thrown together in an uneasy, breathtakingly sensual alliance in this darkly lyrical romance that is the sixth in the "Drake Sisters" series. Feehan (Predatory Game) lives in Northern California.

Meet 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.

I have read all Christine Feehan's books in both the Drake sisters as well as her 'Dark Series'. The premise of the house that serves as a guardian, the power of the sisters and all the twists and turns of their relationships have kept me intrigued. Unfortunately, Turbulent Sea was missing the elements that made the previous books so memorable. Joley was portrayed in a much more shallow light than in previous storylines. This book while being an okay read, was lackluster in comparison to Feehan's other works.

The way the character Jolie dances around Illya and the frustration she experiences do to her mark on her hand is so intriguing . She always knows he is nearby and how cool is it to mentally speak to each other!!!I love how he insinuates himself as her bodyguard and pursues her romantically (much to her consternation) mixed in with the scary situation with a missing girl at a party Jolie stops at. The mob connection Illya has to keep under wraps from Jolie and everyone gets dicey towards the end, but they both survive and true love prevails. I have re read the story twice and enjoyed it more the second time. IT is beautiful how they both learn to let go of their fears of closeness and intimacy and teach each other how to love. Make me cry....

The story of Ilya and Joley had a rocky start in the previous books. They really didn't appear to like each other that much, at least on Joley's side of it. On Ilya's side, well, he didn't give much of anything away ever, so the verdict on whether he liked her was anyone's guess. That changed during Hannah's book, for me at least. When he became livid with how she went on national T.V. to show the world that the Reverend was a pervert, and how she hated that he had seen how she acted in order to get the Reverend to confess, showed the beginnings of what could turn out to be a volcanic relationship. So when their story began I was ready for some tense moments, butting of heads, and fights. Joley does not want to acknowledge that she is attracted to Ilya, and Ilya has pretty much come out and bluntly said to her she is his, his alone, and she will just have to accept that. I will admit, his approach was off-putting in the beginning. It came across, sometimes, like he was tormenting her until she gave in, then it became apparent that the "deep-dark secret" Joley has kept from her family is that she needs someone who is very dominant, or she finds them too weak and wants nothing to do with them. So in the end, what she really truly wants, she is finding very annoying in Ilya. The plot was entertaining and the conflict kept you guessing as to who was behind the attacks against Joley. It had a fun "who-done-it" mystery-vibe going on. The surprises about Nikitin help humanize him in the end. Overall, good read. I did like Hannah and Abbey's books better, but this comes in third for favorites in the series.

This book is one of my favorites in this series. Two strong characters clash throughout the book. It makes for a wonderful read. The plot line is more complicated than many books but it makes it all the more enjoyable. This is not a beach read... In addition, I have found it is not necessary to read these books in order. It can simply be a stand alone. Those who have never tried this series should read this book.

This one is probably my favorite, but have two more to read. I really like the character of Ilya and Joley fits with him. He was mentioned in the previous Drake books and was very myterious, magical and made you want to read the story about him. I liked him imediately. There was mystery, action, love, magic and much more. I enjoyed the end when they get back together after a few weeks where he had to finish up his work. I think more can be written about the couple, especially when the next generation starts. When I read stories like this I always want to have my questions answered. I like looking deeper, but then the books would be double or triple it's original length.
