Magic in the Wind
by Christine Feehan
Released July, 2003
I first discovered Christine Feehan through a co-worker who knew I loved vampire/romance stories. Christine Feehan writes the 'Dark' series, but she also started the Drake Sisters stories. The Drake sisters are a family of seven sisters, all with magical powers. 'Magic in the Wind' was the first. It is a short-story in the anthology 'Lover Beware'.
'Magic in the Wind' tells the tale of the oldest sister, Sarah. She is a security expert, and she has been hired to return home and protect Damon Wilder. Damon used to be a defense contractor until he and his assistant were kidnapped and tortured for state secrets. The bad guys got away as the FBI found where they were being held, but not before his assistant was killed. He retired to Sea Haven, hoping to throw off the scent of the bad guys.
A bit of background info of the Drake sisters. Each is destined to fall in love, in order from oldest to youngest. The gate at the front of their home will not allow anyone in except family and friends, unless it is the destined love of one of the sisters.
I love the interaction between Sarah and Damon, but I also loved the interaction between the sisters. Ms. Feehan knows how to weave the family dynamic into this love story very well, and you end up loving the characters. The heat level between Sarah and Damon is very sensual, but as this is a story about Sarah finding her soul-mate, it is entirely appropriate to the story.
There are now 4 stories told of the Drake sisters, and you can read about them on the author's website at http://www.christinefeehan.com/
She has a wonderfully informative website, and you will have fun navigating through it as you learn a little about the author and her stories.
