Review - Fire Bound by Christine Feehan

Title: Fire Bound 
Series: Sea Haven/Sisters of the Heart #5
Author: Christine Feehan
Release Date: April 26, 2016

The #1 New York Times bestselling author of the Sea Haven novels returns to the circle of the six sisters of the heart, bound by the elements—and to one who possesses the power to inflame the most dangerous passions of all.

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.

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… 

Casmir Prakenskii is a man living in the shadows but ready to do whatever he can to support his brothers. What they endured growing up is what nightmares are based on. They are edgy and distrustful outside of their small circle and you can easily understand why. Being separated very young, I think they try even harder to maintain the connection between them, no matter the time or distance. When called, Casmir could do nothing else but answer regardless of his circumstances.

“He had no home, no name, no past and no future.”

Lissa Piner felt like a fraud even as she lived with her chosen sisters and loved them as her own.

“Practically everything about her was a lie…”

Lissa’s childhood was marred by the violent death of her parents. Every action after that was governed by a deep seated need for vengeance. Betrayal was an ugly word. With not all of it in the past, her final missions were going to be marred with more loss and sorrow than she could have ever dreamed…

How these two lost souls, living in the shadows behind secrets and lies, found each other and forged ahead together was everything I wanted in their story. It tugged every emotion as it equally entertained and delighted with twisty turns and super sexy scenes. I cried, I blushed… and laughed in between. Oh, and definitely fell in love with Casmir—strong, devoted and someone you can count on to have your back, each and every time. Sigh….

From the depths to the heights, this story took me on a ride I’m reluctant to leave. Thank goodness for at least one more sister/brother pairing in the wings!

I live on the beautiful Northern California coast. I have always loved hiking, whale watching and being outdoors. My camping days are over but I might consider glamping. LOL! I am surrounded by my family, my beloved grandchildren and my pack of dogs.
