Next In Line!

I know I have mentioned this before, but I am a total Christine Feehan fanatic. I LOVE everything she writes. All her series are fantastic. The woman never goes wrong. Her current Ghostwalker series release, Predatory Game, was awesome. I loved the characters. And her next Drake Sisters book is about to be released and is the book I wanna talk about.

Turbulent Sea will be released on July 29th. It's book six in the series and is Joley Drake's story. Joley is the wild child of the Drake clan. Her fiery temper however hides her true nature. Joley is a woman who will risk everything, even her own safety, to protect her sisters. She has allowed false rumors of her so-called love life to be published to protect her sister Libby's reputation. She has made herself a target of a woman bashing rapist with political pull by publically exposing him after her sister Hannah was nearly killed. And she will go to the mat for anyone she loves.

Unfortunately, this sets her up as a prime target from those she has angered. Joley is a famous singer and entertainer, a very public and easy to find figure. When her life is threatened, the one man she neither wants to be around nor wants to care about is her only hope. But Joley will fight Ilya tooth and nail because he's a member of the Russian mafia and she wants no part of that.

I'm really looking forward to this book because Ilya, who has been in two other Drake novels, is an anti-hero who is also a hero. He's a killer and works for one of the major kingpins in the Russian mob. But, there is a question of whether or not he really does work for the guy or the was sent to infilitrate his organization. But there is no doubt Ilya's a killer. He has already killed many others in the previous books he's been in. Joley is going to have to decide if she can not only love him, but live with him the way he is. The ultimate conflict.:-)

The making of the book trailer article is up on Christine's webpage. Just click my link if you want to check it out. She'll have the trailer up soon. Circle Of Seven Productions once again did the trailer, as they do all of Christine's novels. But, because Joley is a singer, this trailer is gonna be different. It's done as a music video with the lyrics emphasizing Joley's struggle to except Ilya. The trailer was in fact directed by one of the giants of the music video industry who is famous for work involving Gloria Estefan and many others. Turbulent Sea comes out July 29th but is already available for pre-order from Amazon and Barnes & Nobles.

I'm really looking forward to this book. I love the Drake sisters. Heck, I love all Christine Feehan's books. I've been a fan since her first book was released!

I didn't discover her right away. I read my first of her works the year Dark Secret came out. I read everything she had already written after that book in a single month. Now I eagerly await each new release.:-)
