This installment of the Drake Sisters was not as good as Oceans of Fire. I found the characters not as dynamic and I did find my self bored a few times. The ending was perfect, the bad guy was a surprise (though not really). The conflicts the two characters face were tense at times and added to the plot. I am excited to read the next installment.

Enjoyed this 4th installment of the Drake Sisters Series - Libby's Story. The character delvelopment of Tyson was a little slow in the beginning - but very necessary so you could underdstand him. I wish there was more interaction between Sarah, Kate and Abbey's men .. but truely found the clues for Joely, Hannah and Elle's men interesting. I really love Christine's community of Sea Haven and am off to read Safe Harbor next! Recommend you read them in order as each story builds upon the next, however if you don't you can still follow the series.

So if you are looking for something that will help you forget the stresses of the day, Feehan is a good choice. The plot is fairly simple, sexie man, beautiful lady...both with some baggage and misunderstanding...fall in love exc...Toss in a little magic and there you go. I do like the Drake sisters and as you get further in the series her books and characters become better, as well as a better plot. It takes Feehan a little while to get her speed up with this series. I only wish someone would have told Feehan this in her earlier Drake sister books, because I think she could have done better. Overall Dangerous Tides is a decent book, good mind candy and will release you from every day stresses. What more could you really ask for?

I really loved this book. Chistine Feehan is my favorite auther. I was glad that she didn't stop with the Drakes when that series was over. Can't wait for the next book in this series to come out...

To this point, all of the Drake Sisters' books have been enjoyable easy reads. I almost didn't finish this one as the beginning was very slow and muddled. Glad I didn't give up, though. Got better the further I read, but still not my fav. Looking forward to finally getting Hannah and Jonas's story.

Libby and Tyson are living a beautiful romance despite the fact that they are both wanted dead. They will not let their blossoming relationship dissipate amongst a series of accidents happening to them. I love the fact that the Drakes know they will find their loves. And the idea of them accepting them but being a little resistant makes for a great love story.

It was very good. Well written and a great read. It was magical, sensual and romantic.

Powerful healer Libby Drake meets her intellectual match in Ty Derrick, whose life she saves after a horrific fall. He, of course, is drawn to her, but their 'romance' is troubled by an admirer of Libby's. Again, the romance is getting a little too treacly for me. I'm pretty much reading the books to get more about Hannah's and Joley's romances.

While I think Libby is probably the least interesting sister this book did a good job of pairing her with someone that made her fun to read! It was a fun read and there were times that Christine did an excellent job of making you as frustrated with Ty as Libby was. It was obvious who the bad guy was pretty much from the beginning but other than that the book was very good. Next up is the book in the series I am most looking forward too (actually the last 3 have the guys/gals I am most interested in reading)

Dangerous Tides is book four in Christine Feehan's Drake Sisters series. The story revolves around Libby Drake and Tyson Derrick.Libby is the confirmed "good girl" of the Drake family. Her power lies in healing others, and she has spent her professional life as Dr. Libby Drake, traveling the world with Doctors Beyond Borders, trying to help those in need. Tyson Derrick is a brilliant biochemist working for pharmaceutical company BioLab. Spending most of his life in a lab, Ty spends his vacation time as a rescuer with the forestry service, using the adrenaline rush to feel alive.Libby and Ty were rivals in college. The two most brilliant minds on campus, they often crossed paths, most of the time leaving Libby in tears after Ty said something insensitive to her. Ty has always believed that Libby's family are a bunch of con artists, using slight of hand to defraud the residents of Sea Haven. He believes that he can make Libby see the truth if he can just get her away from her sisters. Despite their history, Libby cannot resist the call to heal Ty after he suffers a deadly fall. Using magic to heal is always dangerous, and it takes a physical toll on Libby, nearly killing her. When Ty realizes that the power of the Drake sisters is authentic, he finds withing Libby's family the acceptance he has always craved. But of course, it can't be that easy - someone is trying to kill Libby and Ty, and it will take all the Drake sisters and their friends combined to make them safe again.For the first 100 pages or so, I really didn't enjoy this book. Ty and his cousin Sam were so obstinate about the Drakes, and their persistence in believing the sisters were charlatans was really annoying! But once the sisters essentially "proved" themselves to him, the book got better. I can't say it was my favorite of the series so far, but it was still good. Libby was a great heroine, but I never really forgave Ty for his initial prejudice. He was incredibly critical of Libby and her family in the beginning, and I just plain didn't like him. I was never able to "fall" for Ty like I have for the past heroes in the series. Like the other books in the Drake Sisters series, Dangerous Tides was full of action: rescue attempts, shootings, car chases, etc. The story was intriguing, full of mystery and suspense. Unfortunately for me, it lacked a little bit of the magic from the other books in the series. Over all, Dangerous Tides was entertaining, but didn't live up to the rest of the series. I wish I could have given it 3.5 stars, but GoodReads doesn't have that capibility yet.

This Series is bout a family of magical sisters and the family ledged that all seven have powers, the first 6 each have a different power and the seventh has all six. This book is about Libby, sensible and practical. She is a doctor by trade and her magic power is healing. She helps anyone any way she can. She falls in love with Ty, a biochemist that moves in with a cousin after his aunt dies and leaves him half of everything she owned.

Dr Libby Drake is sensible and practical, she's a doctor with some magical healing powers. A tragic accident brings Ty Derrick too her door. The two of them are quite attracted to each other but theres someone hunting Either one or both of them.I much prefer this series to her Dark series, I like the Drake sisters and their powers and the fact that they all have some weaknesses. Enjoyable fluff.

This is the fourth story in Feehan's Drake Sisters series about a family of seven sisters, each with a different inherited magical power.Dr. Libby Drake is the good girl of the family, and, in keeping with her non-magical profession, her magical talent is healing.She's had a long-standing crush on Tyson Derrick, a genius research scientist who balances his hours in the lab with extreme sports and volunteering on a search-and-rescue team.Granted, at first glance Ty seems to be a typical romance-novel, too-good-to-be-true hero, and he is, but he's also well-developed and his unusual combination of occupations is well-explained. The physical things make him feel alive, and the adrenaline rushes fill the gaps left by a lack of emotional connection to other people.He's begun realizing this, though, so he's been trying to date, and to be closer to his cousin, with whom he lives 3 months of the year. Unfortunately, it seems that he has to change to have an emotional life, because other people get bored with his conversation, and resent the time he spends in his lab.Until Libby, who, amazingly, is interested in what he has to say, and likes hanging out in the lab with him.Boring others is the least of his problems, though. It seems that someone is trying to kill him. His rescue harness is sabotaged, and the resultant fall is nearly fatal. It would have been fatal if Libby hadn't felt a strong compulsion to risk her own life by healing him.As a scientist, Ty can't accept the existence of magic, but he likes and respects Libby, so he can't believe she's a fraud, either. So he decides her family must have brainwashed her into believing she can heal people by magic. The closer he gets to her, the more determined he becomes to save her from their machinations.The scene where the sisters set him straight is by itself worth the price of the book.One of the problems I've found with books in this sub-genre is the ease with which vanilla humans accept the paranormal. Granted, I wouldn't want to waste most of the book having the non-magical character questioning his/her sanity or spoiling the story by running off screaming, but there needs to be a middle ground between that and instant acceptance. I think Ty's character was very believable in that aspect. I especially liked that his reaction to his initial hypothesis that the Drakes were con artists was that Libby was unaware of the con and that he wanted to protect her. It was very sweet.And of course, I always like brainy characters, particularly in romance novels, where I don't find too many well-written ones. Ty and Libby are brainy, and Feehan still manages to make them realistic characters rather than stereotypes. Ty is rather socially inept, but not comically so, and it's as much due to his upbringing as to his brains. And, most importantly, neither one of them is lacking in logic or common sense.I did guess whodunit fairly early on in the story, but I liked Ty and Libby so much that I didn't really care.

I'm not sure how I feel about this. It wasn't bad, but I couldn't tell if it's meant to be part of a series (there are 3 other books about other Drake sisters) or if it's meant to be standalone. I felt like I was missing too much backstory. I didn't dislike it, but something didn't rub me completely right about it either. And one of the major plot lines was left completely unresolved. I just wasn't that taken with the Drake sisters as a whole. I wouldn't rule out trying another book/series by this author, but I don't think I'll bother with anymore Drake sister books.

I enjoy Christine Feehan's Drake Sisters series. The sisters are all lovely - if a bit perfect - and it's a nice break from the angst of the Carpathian books. Her heroes still tend to be alpha males, but they're not as totally annoying about it as the Carpathians are.There's a lot of wish fulfillment here; seven beautiful sisters with magical powers who love each other with a depth and strength most people can only dream about. But that's okay so long as you start the book with that awareness. It's a lovely fantasy that I enjoy visiting. My only complaint is that there is such a focus on the sisters that the fiances that were found in the earlier books barely seem to figure in each new book. Of course, there were three of them at the start of Dangerous Tides and now there are four, so I guess it would be character overload. All the same, it was good to see brief cameos from the men this time around.I like Ty. Despite his faults, he's another perfect hero - a genius scientist who is also, buffed, strong, handsome and brave. I don't care. This is a fantasy and it's a nice one. Besides, having my own share of social ineptness, it's nice to see that on the page. It was well done, especially the way Ty tended to spout out random facts when he couldn't face something emotional. And while he improved, it never disappeared completely, which I thought was good. I think he's my favourite of all the Drake sister fiances so far.I accidently spoiled myself to the identity of the villain, which I think affected the way I saw the character before the big revelation, so I'd be interested to hear if other readers picked it up from the hints dropped.If you're looking for a solid, realistic story, this isn't for you - but you probably didn't pick up a book about magic sisters if that's what you wanted. But as a perfect romantic fantasy, this pushed all my buttons. Sit back, go along for the ride and enjoy the Drakes. I did, and I'm looking forward to the next three books, especially as we're beginning to see just how much Hannah, Joley and Elle need to find someone to balance them and their gifts.

Another in the Drake sister's novels. It was one of the better ones if taken with a grain of salt. I always seem to have a hard time with the believability of hte characters and that was this book's main drawback.

Libby is the good girl of the 7 Drake sisters. She uses her powers to heal people but it takes a great toll on her own health. Someone has plans for Libby and it spells danger. Her sisters and the people close tho their lives come to protect her. But where does danger come from?I like it. Its a good book. Lots of teasing from the sisters. The characters are fun and exciting.

This book started out a little slow with Dr. Libby and her geek scientist Ty, but "good girl" Libby, ends up being a bit "naughty"! Gets a bit intense at the end, but when doesn't one of the Drake Sisters books? Nice job...Can't wait for the next book . ..
