Overview

A woman possesses the power to inflame the most dangerous passions of all in this Sisters of the Heart novel from #1 New York Times bestselling author Christine Feehan.

On the shores of Sea Haven, six women touched by great loss have come together in a sisterhood strengthened by the elements—a bond each will need as new love and danger enter their lives...

Flame-haired Lissa Piner is a skilled glass blower whose delicate gift conceals a burning inner strength that can destroy as exquisitely as it can create. Commissioned to design chandeliers for a string of luxury hotels, her remarkable skills have taken her to Italy. But Lissa’s real mission there is a secret. For her entire life has been a lie, leading to a chance to avenge a terrible wrong.

Enlisted as her bodyguard is Casmir Prakenskii, a trained assassin living off the grid. In Lissa, he sees a kindred spirit—something unexpected and wicked, mysterious and sensual. But more than desire is about to bring them together: because both of their pasts cry out for revenge. And for two people with this many secrets, this much passion, and this many enemies, someone is bound to get burned.

For years, brilliant glass artist Lissa Piner has led a deadly double life, quietly living with her "sisters" and their protective spouses, the Prakenskii brothers, on their Sea Haven farm while secretly and methodically avenging her birth family's brutal deaths. Now in Europe on business, Lissa has a chance to wrap up her personal vendetta and address the evil stalking her sisters and their husbands. If only she can keep Tomasso, the annoying and far-too-seductive bodyguard, from getting in her way. Casimir Prakenskii, assassin and master of disguise, has been sent by his brothers to keep her safe, and he's not letting her out of his sight. Treachery, merciless violence, and fire-driven passion ramp up the tension in this nonstop adventure that adds another welcome puzzle piece to Feehan's compelling series. VERDICT Swift, intricate, and over-the-top steamy, this vengeance-filled, page-singeing romantic thriller keeps fans on an adrenaline high as lethal, perfectly suited principals ensure that an assortment of depraved villains get their just desserts. Feehan (Dark Promises) lives in Northern California.

Renowned glass artist Lissa Piner is living a double life so secret she can't even tell her sisters-of-the-heart, but when she meets Casimir Prakenskii, who can relate to her deepest, darkest aspects, perhaps together they can right two lifetimes of wrongs. Lissa's circle of friends, all survivors whose relatives were murdered, have become like family to her, and she wishes she never had to leave the shelter of their friendship. But she does. Because the members of her own family who were murdered were her parents, part of an influential Italian mob family, and she's been secretly avenging their deaths ever since. Reportedly killed with them, she was actually raised by her uncle, who took over the family business and trained her to be a predatory assassin. He sent her to the U.S., where she established a cover as a celebrated artist whose glass-blown chandeliers are prized by collectors. Now she's heading back to Europe to meet with luxury hotel owners about work, and she also intends to take her final retribution. Suddenly, though, the past doesn't make complete sense, and discovering some horrific secrets about her uncle compels her to take a harder look at his version of the facts. Her mission is further complicated by the appearance of Casimir Prakenskii, a dangerous Russian assassin who has his own vengeance to mete out but has promised his brothers—most of whom are in relationships with her closest friends—that he'll keep an eye on her. All the Prakenskiis think there's more to Lissa than meets the eye, but none of them know just how deadly the enigmatic beauty is. Initially averse to Casimir's scrutiny, she soon finds him a valuable ally in her plans and realizes he may be her best hope for love, survival, and redemption. Feehan continues her Sisters of the Heart series with another searing romance that explores the emotional toll of violence and the healing power of love, but its highly erotic sex scenes and violent themes may be too intense for some readers.
