I just finished listening to a reread on Kindle and it stands up very well to reread more than a year later. I really loved the setup of this book. It takes place in Europe and has a different feel from the previous books. Lissa is a badass, and she meets her match in Casimir. Not quite instalove, but fairly closed, but I loved their bond. The scenes of them beign in love and expressing their love and working together really worked for me.

I adore all the Prakenskiis, but

Fire Bound (Sea Haven: Sisters of the Heart Series #5) by Christine Feehan, is spin-off of her Drake Sisters Series.

This series is about six sisters related not by blood but of the heart, who find peace and healing from their violent pasts in the small seaside town of Sea Haven. Each sister possesses a different power of the elements.

Fire Bound focuses on Lissa Piner,

Aly is so frigging bored

It was a mess. A very hot mess.

I keep reading Feehan's books because I'm curious about her characters and I want to see how the series end...I wish I didn't have this compulsion. She has amazing ideas, but daaaaaamn the execution kills me. Kills me dead.

The story was very unbalanced. I expected them to deal in the 1st half of the book with her problems and then with his. It didn't happen. Feehan used her brand of repetitive writing and managed to cram his story in about 1 chapter, they had s
6 exceptionally moving love story stars!

He didn’t allow her – or anyone else – to see his reaction to her; he tucked it away to bring out later to savor. It was a gift. Feeling. Anything at all besides loneliness and despair. Feeling for a woman was a gift.

What a poignant and soul-stirring romance that was!

Sadly, this is the last Christine Feehan I will read.

For many years I read Christine Feehan's books and enjoyed them. I love continuing series and finding out more about characters as the series goes on. Her paranormal world is interesting and unusual and that always made for a good read. There was always some violence and some sex but there was a story and an emotional connection with the characters. I stopped reading her Carpathian novels a couple of years ago because the sex and violence over

Imagine Kane "Tack" Allen on steroids and in charge of 17 others just like him.

Over the top and not in a good way. Too many long sex scenes, one followed every other scene. Bad guy killed, let's have sex. Doing a business deal, so hot, lets have sex. And the author repeated the same things over and over and over.

Carol Monda was my least favorite narrator in this series. She didn't quite capture the menacing tone of these highly trained yet controlled assassins.

I have been reading this series every month and this is why I tend to shy away from binge reading series. After a few books, this one was more of the same insta-love between a sister of the heart and a Prakenskii. All the other ones didn't annoy me like this one, but the romance didn't move me that much.

Lissa Piner was a sister that I didn't know
Another amazing book from Ms Feehan. She never disappoints. I'm super excited to read the next book in this series. The action, scorching sex and the love/commitments/betrayals!!! Wow, an intense read. I wouldn't have wanted it any other way!!!!
Abandoned at 43%.

I really tried with this book, even though it meant skimming through the Unending Sex Scene (seriously, how much stamina do these people have?). But the unnecessarily graphic rape scene when the villain rapes a woman whose husband just died made me give up.

Do not recommend.
Why do I keep doing this to myself? It's not a good sign when you spend the whole book thinking "yikes this is bad, why am I reading this, ugh this is not good..." I mean there's not even any interest in the plot or characters because it's always literally and precisely the only plot and only two characters she's ever written.

I think Feehan probably has built a book generator program at home by now that churns these out, replete with the exact same physical, emotional, and sexual descriptions of

When two like souls find each other…

I couldn’t wait to start this story—another book in a series I love! The Prakenskii brothers are all alpha, all the time, while the Sea Haven sisters’ strengths match them in every way. Each instalment so far has seen a blood brother paired with a sister (by choice), with each story offering something as unique as the elements around us. What they all have in common is the unquestionable love and commitment they have for each other…

I love this series but this addition was a bit of a let down for me. Definitely my least favourite of the series. I certainly didn't hate it but I felt I'm being generous with the 3 stars.
So much seemed to be missing and then so much was just OTT and repetitive, especially the LENGTH and number of the sex scenes, I mean they even did it on a horse, um, nope sorry! The sex scenes on occasion just seem inappropriate in relation to what was happening around them or had just happend, violence etc.
I like this author , but her books , and series are getting very graphic. One sexual encounter lasted three chapters, which I skipped. She lets you have a little story, than back to rough graphic sex. I loved the idea of Lissa, who makes beautiful glass blown lights, running the story. She is determined to find those responsible , for her parents death, and destroy them. A body guard is sent along to keep her safe, Casimir Prakenski, one of the brothers we have yet to meet. She rebels, he demand ...more

I have loved the crazy that is the Sisters of the Heart/Sea Haven series. And it is insane. 7 Russian brothers all fall in instant lust with sisters (not blood related but who have adopted each other and live on a farm together in California) who have violent pasts and also special supernatural gifts tied to earth elements that the brothers also have. The storylines are violent, extremely violent, with most including multiple murders, rape (including children), and torture with the theme of find ...more

I liked the story better than the last one in the series (can't remember the title) but this one was more violent than the others in the series. Too violent. I skipped over some of the villains being evil. They were disgusting and did nothing to make the book better. It did the opposite. I'm guessing the villains had to be made that evil to justify the level of violence in the hero, to justify that he's willing to torture, not just kill.

There were three or four sex scenes that I skipped over.

Just as action packed and un-put-downable as the previous installments in this exciting series. It’s just that since one has to buy into the whole “insta-love” thing in that paranormally way (which I can totally do) in order for the relationships to really sink in and seem real, I need a bit of time before all the sexcapades.

Sure, we can believe a “gifted” person can know immediately that they have found “the one” but still they are going to need to get to know each other at least a little bit

Alright. So, for an honest review of this book. I have to start at the beginning. You see I decided a couple of days ago that I missed the library. I missed holding an actual book in my hand and the smell of the pages. So, I went to the library and there I picked up this book. Now, keep in mind NOWHERE on this paperback book does it say it’s a series and this is book 5!! I was expecting a one night stand not a six book relationship!!

Now, that I have cleared that up! On to the actual book review

I liked that the heroine is trusted and allowed to actually be on her own and do her thing but I didn't really feel like Casimir was the brother to come after Gavriil.

*I should add that Lissa is a badass assassin type physical person and her first, well into her 20's, sexual experience was described as having a "barrier". Again. Can we just get away from this idiocy in romance?

Casimir Prakenskii is the middle brother out of seven. He has the uncanny ability to assume any role needed in his dangerous line of work. Casimir agrees to follow and secretly protect Lissa as she travels overseas for business. He infiltrates her uncle's household as a bodyguard-for-hire to properly shield Lissa from any possible threats. Casimir senses that she is his destined mate and a fellow kindred fire elemental. He reveals her uncle's betrayal and promis

I enjoyed this book alot. It had many things I enjoy in a story--interesting characters, some organized crime, betrayal, and of course, love. However, I will advise you that elements of this story can be a bit harsh to read. Both Lissa and Casimer are tied to the fire elemental. Lissa is one of the Sisters of the Heart--a group of women who came together after undescribable violence in their lives to form a tightly woven family. Each of them are tied to an element and will mate with one of the P ...more

I was given this book in exchange for a honest review.

UGH...the ONLY thing it was missing was that horrible 1970's boom-chicka-bow-wow music and it would have porn! Setting, story line, character development...basically EVERYTHING...was secondary to sex scenes and bad, pretend D/s sex scenes at that. Possible trying to keep up with FSoG?? Not something I would read to anyone that enjoys an in-depth story.

It was your below average romance novel. I had read several of the Drake Sisters books, but I struggled through 80% of the pages in each book because I do not like the author’s writing style, but I wanted to know what happened to the sisters.

Another hot installment in the Seahaven series. For some reason I like Casimir the best. He’s domineering but still has a deep appreciation for Lissa’s strength and abilities. They meshed well together and the danger and intrigue was perfect for them both. The story kept me on the edge of my seat and the hot hot romance

I have only read the first book in this series and then this one so during parts of the book I felt a little lost but overall I enjoyed how Feehan had these two bad ass characters come together.

Although she is going to miss the women who she lives with this is something she not only needs to do for herself but in the income that she will make will help on their f
