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....

Joley Drake is a star, a musical genius, a pop icon, and of course, a witch. She's Brittany Spears, Madonna, Sting and Winnie the Witch all rolled up into one slightly less neurotic and drug addicted package. What she's addicted to instead is sexy, dangerous Russian bodyguard Ilya, who may or may not be a Russian mobster.... As fraught with intrigue, paparrazzi and psychotic stalker fans as a soap opera, Feehan's latest is pretty much a bubblegum read. Is Ilya actually a mob enforcer? Will Joley be left alone for life? Will Tish take Logan and the baby back? Who blew up the bus? Yadda, yadda, yadda. If you've read the rest, you'll probably want to see what the latest Drake sister is up to.

I love the Drake sister books, they always draw me in so I can't put the book down until I'm finished. I'll be disappointed when this series ends.

Turbulent Sea is book 6 in Christine Feehan's Drake Sisters series. Unfortunately, it's the last book in the series until June! What am I going to do? Luckily, I have about a bajillion books on my tbr list just waiting for me to pick them up. But I digress, back to the review.Turbulent Sea is the story of world famous musician Joley Drake, and secretive bodyguard Ilya Prakenskii. Joley is the sixth daughter of the enchanting Drake family. Joley is a charismatic performer, and shares a powerful magical inheritance with her six sisters. Joley is a spell-singer, able to compel anyone who hears her voice to feel or act anyway she wants. We first met Ilya Parenskii in Oceans of Fire. He grew up with Abbey Drake's fiance Alexsandr Volstov in a group home in Russia. From a very early age, Ilya was brutally trained for a high-stakes life among criminals. As a bodyguard for notorious mobster Sergei Nikitin, he is detached, enigmatic, and hard as nails, but his love for Joley is destined to melt his heart of stone, and in so doing will force him to reveal dangerous secrets that will put not only his life in jeopardy, but also the lives of Joley and her family.Turbulent Sea was in short, everything I hoped it would be! It was the best book in the series so far, full of action, romance and mystery. I loved the characters of Joley and Ilya. The chemistry between them was complex and satisfying -I really enjoyed reading about all the characters in Turbulent Sea - every character, from Joley's band mates and crew to the crazed fans, were dynamic and well-written. The other Drake sisters took a back seat in this book, allowing the action to keep speeding toward it's conclusion. I can't wait for the next book to see what happens with Elle Drake and Jackson Deveau. As the seventh daughter of a seventh daughter, Elle is destined to pass on all the Drake family's magical gifts to her seven daughters. I wonder how Jackson will handle the idea of being a father to seven magical little girls of his own!

I was a little disappointed. . .This story has been building and building with tension, background and unexplored passion. But we get to the story and I found our heroine to be a little whiny and the hero not sharing a darn thing. I was hoping for more background with his story but he choose not to share with her and told he never would. I felt the story revolved around the secondary characters more than the main, which was interesting but not what I expected or even wanted. For me the lowest rated book of the series, not up to my expectations.

This is the sixth in the Drake Sister's series. As with many of the other books in this series, there was a ton of great action and lots of interesting "magic", but also lots of over the top sex. The character were enjoyable but not very well developed and the bad guys were very stereotypical Feehan. It was a fun quick read and I'm sure I'll finish out the series with the seventh book when it's published.

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 bout Joley the rock star. Her gift is singing which has made her an overnight sensation leaving her feeling trapped by fame and fortune ¿. She falls in love with Ilya Prakenskii a bodyguard, whom has powers of his own. He also was the enemy of Alekandr her brother in law. While trying to hide the fact that they are together after a missing girl and a dead person or two, he saves her and her family accepts him.

I liked most of the dark series by christine feehan that I have read , in fact I probably have read most of them, this series is similar I mooched this book off bookmooch, and have resent it to someone else already, I would have to say I like this series it reminds me of Nora Roberts Face the Fire series but this is a bunch of sisters with paranormal gifts and something dark trying to get them etc etc, nice for a rainy weekend a fast read with lots of steaminess, I liked this book better that the next one by far the lead male is *cough* Hot, a fantastical romance, not a bad couple hours read.

This has to be my favorite book in the series (and yes I am half way through the 7th one so I can say that)! I think it was well-written, raw, and fun to read. For anyone a bit skiddish about detailed scenes should probably steer clear these were a bit more on the descriptive side than the previous books have been. I am sad to see this series end :(

I love the Drake Sisters series and I thought this was a great romance story.
JessicaAllen on LibraryThing 10 months ago
Loved this book, it was excellent!I think the only problem is that all the books in the series are a little too similar, the sisters need to have more unique characters. But it was a great read anyway, I love all the supernatural themes in Feehan's novels! :)

This sixth book in the Drake Sisters Series is great . I love the interaction between Joley and Ilya . He is so mysterious, but you just know in your heart that even though Joley seems to go for the "bad boys", if she is so attracted to Ilya , he's got to really be one of the good guys. Great book!!

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.
