I so wanted to like this book.
The 4th book in Christine Feehan's Sisters of the Heart Series and tells the story of Lexi and Graviil Prakenskii.

I just could not engage with the two main characters. Their whole interaction just seemed a bit off for me.

The plot was okay but the story just moved so slow and with so much repetition...the same thing over and over again.

What made me finish the book was that I wanted to finally get to see the Prakenskii brothers finally being together again.

I did a reread at the end of last year, and it was still great. Loved the relationship between Gavril and Lexi. How Lexi was protective of Gavril and wanted to take care of him, which seems totally flipped around since she's the one who has been wounded as a child. But then, hasn't Gavril? Being trained from childhood to be an assassin and tortured physically? This story isn't as complex as some of the others, but I didn't mind the focus on Gavril dealing with the monsters who were stalking Lex ...more

They came to Sea Haven to begin anew, all of the six have special abilities with the elements of the earth, and Lexi connects with the earth and has a talent for growing plants and vegetation. All six bought the land and share in the responsibilities of it. Lexi loves what she does and thrives in it, and it keeps the past and

I simply adored this book. It was amazing. The H was phenomenal. Extraordinary. The h was sweet and I rooted for her to conquer the demons in her past. This couple were PERFECT for each other. I truly loved it. And I'm so gonna order a paperback. This book would be one I'm gonna re-read over and over and never tire of it. I loved the way he loved her. No other words to describe his love for her. You have to experience it. All I'm gonna say is....READ THE BOOK! :D

I've said it before and I'll say it again, this is my favourite Christine Feehan series. I love love love these books. Lexi and Gavriil were so cute and I just wanted to hug them through out the whole book. I can't wait for the next book which from foreshadowing in this one will hopefully be Lissa's book. Fingers-crossed cause I'm really interested in her back story now that we got a glimpse of it. I will give anyone who is a thinking about reading this a heads up, this is very much insta love. ...more
This is my favorite series of Feehan's. I gave up on the Dark series long ago, and while I've read some of the Leopard and Game books, this is the one I get most excited for. I dove in as soon as I received the book for review. While I enjoyed it, I didn't love it as much as some of the others in the series.

I still love the relationship between the sisters most, and now the added bonus of the brother's forming their own relationships with each other. My favorite part of this book was Gavrill's

Ms. Feehan paired the damsel in distress or the weakest link of the sisters with the badass of the brothers in this book, smart:)

I guess you can skip this book in term of the series storyline, except the one tried to kill Ilya Prakenskii, this book more about Lexi's childhood abusers wanted to kidnap her again. Of course won't that easy, she have her sisters, brothers in law and Gavriil this time.

However in this book, you will see the Prakenskii brothers reunion for the first time and that was a

I don’t know whether it’s just me or it’s Christine Feehan, but that was so ordinary. The last three Sisters of the Heart books were very enjoyable, good story lines, lot of stuff happening, an interesting set up and a great group of characters. But this one was just off. There was barely any story line at all, just constant interaction between Gavriil, the hero, and Lexi, the heroine, but not even growing together because they were perfect together within minutes of meeting each other.

I've read a few of Feehan's Dark series and they're okay, some I like better than others but I don't go out of my way to read them. They can be a little too.. romance novel corny with too many eye rolling moments for me. I have liked the series that this book is part of (Sea Haven?) though. I especially liked the one with Rikki as she's the only Autistic heroine I've seen so far.

This book... it was a disappointment. I haven't read any of Feehan's Sea Haven series in years so maybe the pendulum h

Lexi’s nightmare comes true, the cult has found and threatened her but unlike her nightmares, Gavriil Prakenskii saves her in this sensational paranormal romance.

Gavriil knows that Lexi is destined to be his but he doesn’t think that Lexi can find happiness with a man full of secrets and shadows and well acquainted with violence and the reader can’t help but get caught up in this heart gripping tale as Lexi and Gavriil’s personal demons slowly give way to their chance at happiness.

I have to admit, I read this book to relax. Also, I'm a little OD-ed with sex. One can only read so much BDSM and non-con. Sometimes, I need my mind cleared out just like a nice sorbet between dishes in a 12 course meal.

I like this series because of the whole family connection. I love these deadly Russian assassins. What's not to like? Sexy accent, hawt body, loyal and lethal killers are all up my alley.

There’s a lot of telling not showing.

The Review:

I haven’t read any books in this series, this is my first. That being said, it was definitely one that while you may be missing some of the backstory you don’t feel completely lost reading out of order. So for me to fill that backstory, I am going to definitely go back and read the first three books. Lexi is a survivor from a cult; she has joined her sisters

I'm not sure how to rate this.

I loved the hero and heroine. This was a fantastic pairing of personalities. If Feehan had just focused on the romance instead of the horribly traumatic and disturbing backstories of so many characters, this would have been perfect for me.

Unfortunately, Feehan's new favorite themes seem to be sex trafficking, torture, and rape. Including the abduction, rape, torture, and murder of children. The trauma these characters have endured is brought up repeatedly in the boo

I didn't care for this story. I know to expect insta-love, insta-claiming and all that, but it just didn't work at all for me.

The one part I did like was that the brothers FINALLY reconnected. The best part of the book, too bad they didn't get more page time together.

I'm not sure I care enough at this point to read the final two books.

This installment of the Sea Haven series isn’t as chock-ful of action and suspense as the others so far. Instead it deals with two very broken people and how they help each other find happiness and love again after a lifetime of absolutely horrifying experiences. That isn’t to say there isn’t action and intrigue, it’s just that the focus is more on the relationship side - in a very good way.

As with Air Bound, Earth Bound is also a darker tale involving the abuse of children for Mrs. Feehan. This book is about Lexi and does contain child molestation/pedophilia. However, if you have been following this series since Ilya you know that she has taken the path of sex trafficking for this series. While there is no extreme sexual description regarding the actual acts, you do get a keen sense of what took place, as well as descriptive scenes explaining the punishments doled out for noncompl ...more

Earth bound is the fourth book in the Sea Haven series and tells the story of Lexi, the sister gifted with the earth element and Gavriil Prakenskii, one of the oldest brothers.

When Lexi moved to Sea Haven with her five sisters to start anew she was pleased to run their farm being responsible for a farm isn’t easy but Lexi loved taking care of it. It also helped that she could feel what the earth needed. But Lexi’s past isn’t that different from that of her sisters’.

I admit that I enjoy most of what Ms. Feehan writes, but I also admit that it’s been so long since I’ve read one of this series, that it took me a minute to get all the supportive cast straight. That said, even with needing to stop and think about who’s who, I think someone who just picked up this book could just enjoy it for the fascinating paranormal romance that it is.

This one worked much better for me than the last one did. I thought that Lexi and Gavriil balanced one another and each had what the other needed to heal. I did think that for Gavriil being such a bad mamajama that he got in touch with his more sensitive side awfully fast when it cameto Lexi, but it was enough to detract from the story. Lexi was kidnapped at 8 years old from her bed and forced to live with a cult and forced to marry one of the leaders at a very young age, as well as suffer horri ...more

I wasn't sure about Gavriil at the start of this one, but quickly he won me over. I loved how Gavriil was instantly smitten with Lexi, but knew he needed to go slow with her. It was fun to see all the others at the farm warn Gavriil, warn him that if he hurt her they would all come after him.

I loved how Lexi saw a different side of Gavriil, one in which he was a bit softer. You had to laugh every time she was defending him to her sisters.

I liked how Gavriil slowly became a part of the farm and

Audio Book- Narrator has a sexy voice.

As I'm listening he's not that great w/ voice inflections. I'm not hearing the harsh or stern voice or any real change to express character emotions. But I am loving the H. He is fun in a yummy way.

It's bad when u want to fall asleep during the sex scene that finally happens. The narrator sounds like he is giving a documentation of the scene.

Sad b/c when the narrator gives the H a Russian accent he sounds sexy.

This was so heart wrenching. And heartbreaking. And just generally completely gut wrenching. Lexi is such a sweet and adorable character. And her past is stomach-curdlingly ill-inspiring. The fact that she ends up with the most damaged of the Prakenskii brothers too helps to make this both beautiful and… well, heartbreaking. There really is no other word. This seriously tore at the heartstrings and made it impossible to put the story down.

A beautiful story that majestically mixes magic, suspense, action and romance all into one delightful read. What got me hooked was the growth of love and trust between to utterly broken people on different ends of the spectrum where one chose violence and the other chose peace. Gavriil and Lexi fit so perfect with each other, as if they truly found the other half of their soul within the other. I gave it four stars because I was a bit lost in the back story bits, but I'm sure when I can scrounge ...more

Her lashes fluttered, eyes going a vibrant green. Her mouth curved into a soft smile. "You say the most beautiful things, Gavriil. You should have been a poet."
He brushed a kiss over each eye and slipped his gun into the waistband at the small of his back before straightening. "I'm a poet with a knife or gun."
