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.

APPLE BOOKS REVIEW
A mystical bond and overpowering passion unite Lissa Piner and Casimir Prakenskii, the stars of Christine Feehan’s action-packed romance. As Lissa closes in on the man who killed her family—who she’s spent years tracking down—she’s distracted by her attraction to her self-appointed bodyguard. The fifth book in the Sea Haven series will appeal to fans of Feehan's Dark novels, but newcomers to the paranormal genre will find the supernatural elements subtle enough not to overwhelm.
Bestseller Feehan's third Sisters of the Heart paranormal (after Spirit Bound) has a heroine as bland and colorless as the air that she controls. Airiana Ridell has seen patterns and equations in the air for as long as she can remember. She was part of a government program for teenage geniuses until the murder of her mother led her to flee. Max Prakenskii is a mercenary sent by Airiana's long-absent father, Theodotus Solovyov, to retrieve her from the close-knit community of Sea Haven, Calif. Max soon recognizes Airiana as a kindred air soul, despite her sheltered unawareness of her own power. As Theodotus's machinations drag them deeper into a murky underworld of international intrigue and child trafficking, Airiana realizes that Max is in as much danger as she is. Though the paranormal talents of Max and Airiana are unique, the tales of a cold warrior finding a heart and the heroine coming into her own have been better explored elsewhere.
Excellent story I throughly enjoyed reading it
