DANGEROUS TIDES (A Drake Sisters Novel) book 4 by Christine Feehan
Dr. Libby Drake is sensible and practical. To her more adventurous sisters, she’s always been the “good girl”. Certainly not the kind to attract the attention of a genius like Ty Derrick–until a tragic accident leaves the handsome biochemist at her mercy.
Acting on her uncanny ability to heal, she stirs in the reawakened Ty his own long-suppressed desires for the woman who saved his life. But he’s not the only man with designs on Libby Drake. Her miraculous and selfless power has also captured the attention of a dangerously influential admirer. He’s pursuing the elementally gifted beauty for his own wicked purpose. And he’s willing to go to deadly lengths to make it happen.
Libby is the fourth Drake sister, doctor and healer. She uses both science and magic to aid her. Her ability to “draw” the illness or injury from the patient into herself is a dangerous one, but Libby can’t help herself, If someone is in need, she’s there to lend a helping hand.
But unlike Sarah and Joley, Libby wants a quiet life, happy to blend into the background, she leave the excitement and adventure to Elle and Sarah.
But when Libby is drawn to healing Ty (he’s had a really bad accident)? It sets up a chain reaction. He wants answers, how did she heal him? He doesn’t believe in magic, but there is something about Libby that draws him in. And then there is the reporter looking for a story, and a mother who won’t take no for an answer. Poor Libby is torn, trying to help everyone may kill her, but Libby can’t walk away.
Ty is a part time firefighter, part of a rescue team, adrenaline junkie and biochemist. His brain might run at 100 miles an hour, but his social skills are practically non existent. He doesn’t do small talk, it’s a waste of time. But Ty feels something is missing, his team mates might make fun of him, but he feels it’s time to settle down, but who will take him on?
We have a mystery to solve. We have the usual bad guy. We also have a little magic. We have the usual funny chats and fun times between the sisters. It’s great they all live close together. They all use to live on the Drake house, but as each sister finds her man they move out.
Now I have to admit, this was my least favourite book in this series. I just felt it didn’t flow as well as the others, and it did feel a little rushed in places.
