#1 New York Times bestselling author Christine Feehan tells the story of Abigail Drake, one of seven elementally gifted sisters who are fated to find great love.
As the third daughter in a magical bloodline, Abigail Drake was born with a mystical affinity for water, and possessed a particularly strong bond with dolphins. She spent her entire life studying them, learning from them, and swimming among them in the waters off her hometown of Sea Haven...
Until the day Abby witnessed a cold-blooded murder on shore, and found herself fleeing for her life—right into the arms of Alexsandr Volstov. He’s an Interpol agent on the trail of stolen Russian antiquities, a relentless man who gets what he goes after—and the man who broke Abby’s heart. But he isn’t going to let the only woman he ever loved be placed in harm’s way—or slip away from his embrace.
Brimming with exhilarating action sequences and sultry love scenes, Feehan's over-the-top paranormal romance, the newest in her Drake Sisters series (The Twilight Before Christmas, etc.), spotlights Abigail Drake, a witch who can communicate with dolphins. Set in quaint Sea Haven, Calif., the novel opens as Abigail, one of seven enigmatic sisters with magical powers, witnesses a brutal murder while swimming with her dolphins in Sea Haven harbor. In a scene that crackles with tension, Abigail swims to the rescue of a second man who, wounded, has fallen into the ocean making her the target of the Russian killers and some hungry sharks. The brush with danger leads her back into the arms of sexy Interpol agent Aleksandr Volstov, who broke her heart four years earlier. Together, Aleksandr and Abigail engage in sensual foreplay as he searches for those responsible for his partner's murder and the culprits involved in a smuggling ring. Though the passion and intrigue can grow overheated, Feehan's well-crafted characters like the sisters' quirky Aunt Carol, whose thirst for excitement and love of photography come together in the strangest moments ground the tale and give it some much-needed levity.
