Hidden currents (The Drake Sisters Series) book 7 by Christine Feehan
From afar, Sheriff Jackson Deveau has always loved Elle Drake, the youngest telepath of seven magically gifted sisters. After a long time away she’s finally returning home to the small coastal village of Sea Haven. But someone has been following Elle, someone who doesn’t want her to make it back. And when Elle fails to arrive, her disappearance strikes fear in the hearts of everyone who loves her.
Now it’s left to Jackson to uncover the mystery of Elle’s vanishing, and rescue her from an unseen danger. But Sea Haven is no longer safe for anyone, and it’ll take the powers of all the Drake sisters and their men to survive the coming storm.
Elle is the youngest Drake sister, she carries all the gifts that her sisters have, and the responsibility of carrying on the legacy. (Seventh daughter will have seven daughters to carry on the tradition)
Jackson ex army ranger, DEA agent abs now sheriff in Sea Haven (long time friend of Jonas) has known Elle would be his, they connected when he was held and tortured. But he wasn’t ready, and to find out they would have to have seven daughters!! Well that’s enough to blow anyone’s mind!! But as she won’t give up her job either (she’s an undercover agent) it’s so frustrating to watch her and not be able to protect her.
Elle has been kidnapped, no one knows where she is, and it’s driving Jackson insane. He knows she’s in trouble (their connection tells him so) he won’t stop until she’s back home, and in his arms.
When Elle is finally rescued she’s different. She’s scared and has been conditioned!! It’s going to take time and a gentle hand. Elle now can’t stand to be touched (being beaten and abused will do that to a person.)
Jackson wants to tear the world apart, but Elle just wants to be normal again. And she also knows the man who took her, will come for her!! But her abilities were damaged when she was kidnapped, so Elle thinks she’ll be kidnapped again!
This was a hard book to read. To read about abuse is hard, the author pulled no punches. I loved this series, and a little disappointed with the ending, but still a good read. And I’m glad we get a spin off series.
