Review: Fire Bound (Sea Haven/Sisters of the Heart #5) by Christine Feehan

Book Blurb

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.

Toot's Review by Stacy Sabala

Lissa is leaving the farm and her sisters under the excuse of selling her Chandeliers to three hotels is Europe.  Unbeknownst to them she is going home to Italy to finish what she started.  She and her uncle Luigi have sworn to make those pay that killed her parents.  Her sisters don’t know who she really is or what she really does.  She plans on finishing her promise then going after the two men that threaten her sisters and their husbands.  She knows she may not come back but she is okay with that.  She knows they will be safe.
Casimir finally meets with his brothers.  They want him to travel with Lissa and keep her safe.  They don’t want her to know that he is there.  However Lissa figures out who he is.  She also knows she should fear him.  She is his and he is hers.  They both know it but she doesn’t want anything to do with it.
However Lissa begins seeing what is really going on with the revenge she is carrying out against those who murdered her family.  Betrayal and secrets are ruling her days.  Casimir steps in to protect her and help her plan her next moves.  They begin working as a team to take care of all the threats that affect her sisters and herself.

I love this author and this series.  I was very excited to read the next installment.  Lissa is a stronger sister of the group not much is known about her.  So her story was very surprising.  I wasn’t expecting her to still have a family member alive.  I love how strong the author made her.  She is smart and deadly.  Of course Casimir  comes face to face with her and realizes that she is his.  I knew from past books that he would be a controlling alpha male that needs to protect her.  She obviously is a strong, independent woman.  So sparks were gonna fly.  I was a bit surprised at the sexual way the story progressed.  It wasn’t exactly what I was expecting.  In fact I was a little disappointed that it seemed to dominate a lot of the story.  I liked the two together and loved watching them work as partners.  In other words I liked the pairing and the shocking secrets that were revealed.  I also was excited to see all the brothers in this book.  The sex was a bit over the top for me with the inventive ways Casimir came up with.  Otherwise I give this book a 4 out of 5.
