Review of Water Bound

Water Bound
Christine Feehan
Penguin Group
443 pages

Water Bound is the first in Christine Feehan’s new series, a spin off of The Drake Sisters and based in Sea Haven.
Rikki is a sea urchin diver, she learned to like a solitary life as it beats being ridiculed for being “different”, until she goes diving and encounters a half dead man. What should she do with him, especially since he doesn’t want in spite of his grave injuries medical help. Lev Prakenskii can’t remember anything but his name and the fact that he’s a killer and yet Rikki knows she’s in no danger from him, that is until her heart is involved and then look out.
Ms. Feehan gives us a brand new series with some old friends and some new faces in her brand new series in Sea Haven the home town of the beloved Drake Sisters. Her plot is straight forward with just enough woo woo to make it interesting for us her paranormal fans. You’ll recognize her dialogue as she rarely strays from her unique style of storytelling and yet it’s different enough from her other series that it has it’s own flavor. Her characters are as usual over the top with personality and her readers won’t be able to help themselves but to love the hero Lev and her heroine RIkki, and we get the added bonus of catching up with our old friends too. The romance is sweet and the audience will be pulling for them every step of the way as you will not meet two characters in more need of a happy ever after. The love scenes are hot, spicy, sensual and leave little to the imagination, but you will know there’s love in every encounter.
So if you finished Elle and Jackson’s story and were a little misty eyed, this is your chance to go back to Sea Haven. If you love Christine’s other series, you will love this one. If you love a great series that thinks just a little out of the box and adds a little paranormal to the persuasion, you’ll love this. It’s a great new series and I can’t wait for the next volume.
