Book Description

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.

Editorial Reviews

From Booklist

Dr. Libby Drake is the "good girl" of seven sisters, never living dangerously. She has the gift of healing but also uses her brilliant mind and physician's training to help others. When one of her teenage patients winds up at the bottom of a cliff, he is rescued by the fire department via helicopter. Ty Derrick, brilliant biochemist and part-time rescue worker, receives mortal injuries when his harness fails. He has always fascinated Libby, and she uses all her energy and healing power to save him. Sparks fly since Ty has always had a crush on Libby, but someone is out to get them. Was Ty's fall an accident? Is a reputed mobster trying to kill her? Who snapped photos of Libby and Ty making love and sold them to the tabloids? The latest of Feehan's tales of the seven magically gifted Drake sisters offers a tempting blend of paranormal romance and mystery. Diana Tixier Herald

5.0 out of 5 stars Magical Drake Sisters Romance June 29, 2006
Format:Mass Market Paperback|Verified Purchase
Christine Feehan has written one of the best of her Magical Sisters novels. There is sissle, romance, danger, and magic in this episode of the series.

Libby Drake is the fourth of the seven sisters with magic. She is the Doctor, the good girl, the one who never gets in trouble. She has a gift for healing, using her abilities in context with her profession. Libby feels like the overlooked one in the Drake family, she feels she is destined to be an old maid, because she has never felt the pull of passion or the heat of chemistry.

Tyson Derrick is a genius, he and Libby attended college together. She has great respect for his brillance, but not for his social skills. Tyson is a loner, except for his cousin Sam. His interests lie in research but occasionally he needs to fill the emptiness inside, so he skydives, mountain climbs, or works with the Rescue Team his cousin is on. Only a rush of adrenaline seems to make him feel alive.

Until the day his safety rope snaps and he falls 30 feet onto the rocks below him. He is rushed to the hospital and declared in a vegative state. When Libby sees him she is forced by her gift to save his life, even at the risk of hers and her sisters. As Libby collapses he awakens to stare into her eyes and find there is something else that can make him feel alive. That can fill his empty heart. Suddenly he finds his mind filled with everything about Libby. He doesn't believe Libby can heal and considers her sisters con artists who have fooled a whole community. But he is determined to make her his.

There is a beauty and soothing quality in her face and Ty needs to have that in his life, Libby finds she is not without feelings of her own. As they try to learn about each other they are faced with several attempts on their lives.

5.0 out of 5 stars Feehan at her best... June 28, 2006
Format:Mass Market Paperback
This was one of the best Feehan books that I have read in the last couple of years. This is about Libby Drake, Witch/Doctor/Healer and Ty Derrick, genius researcher. I'm not going to give you the plot or a description of the book because there are reviewers out there that will do a much better job of it than I can. I will tell you that this was a very satisfying love story and mystery. And character development was extremely good with both the hero and heroine - they grew in this book to be a unit and it was great to see. I especially loved the hero of this book. Also, each Drake sister is very much involved in the book and it was nice to see the sisters from the previous books, but I wish I had seen their fiancés (who were absent in this book) We also get glimpses of future books and pairings as in Hannah with Jonas, Elle with Jackson and Joley with a minor character from a previous book (he was mentioned once in this book and I can't remember his name but I immediately remembered him from a previous book). Now I not-very-patiently wait for the next installment of the Drake Sisters. Write fast Ms. Feehan!!!

4.0 out of 5 stars libby and ty's story is not what one would expect July 9, 2006
By Kalea
Format:Mass Market Paperback
Like many others, I didn't expect Libby Drake's story to be particularly exciting. It seems the three younger Drake sisters, Hannah, Joley and Elle would have the best and most interesting stories out of the series. I planned to buy Dangerous Tides anyway, since I'm a big fan of the Drake sisters.

Libby's story is much better than I thought it would be. It showcases the lengths people would go to in order to get what they want; whether or not they have good intentions. It also shows how irrational and selfish people can be when it concerns their loved ones. People are sometimes too blind to see what's right in their face. Despite their insight, the Drakes are also susceptible to these faults.

Just because Libby's the sweet and caring sister out of the seven does not make her any less lovable. Christine Feehan has a knack for diversity which I'm grateful for. If all seven sisters were similar to one another in terms of personality, then it defeats the purpose of having seven different people (it might as well be one girl) starring in each book (with seven different love interests); and it wouldn't be realistic.

Libby sometimes tires of her good girl disposition and wishes she wasn't such a goody goody. She feels as if she's boring, and isn't much fun to be with. Like many other women, Libby is insecure about her looks. Especially since she has a model and a rock star in her family. She is a compassionate and understanding person with or without her empathic abilities. She strives to help people any way she can; even at the cost of harm to herself - major or minor. Her ability to heal makes her the target of many desperate, unreasonable people, which puts her safety at risk.

Tyson Derrick is nearly a mad scientist.

4.0 out of 5 stars Predictable but highly entertaining November 20, 2006
By Neilisa
Format:Mass Market Paperback
Dangerous Tides is as sensual as it is an intriguing story of danger, mystery, and romance...with a touch of magic of course. Libby Drake is the sensible sister. As a medical doctor, and magically gifted with the power of healing, she has traveled the world to offer her services wherever needed. One of the things that Libby secretly longed for but also was afraid of was finding a love of her own. She's seen several of her sisters in very happy relationships and was quietly resolved that it would never happen to her. The only man she was ever attracted to didn't know that she existed.

Ty Derrick, a brilliant chemist and adrenalin junkie, has returned to Sea Haven to spend time with his cousin Sam. He's also decided that it's time he settle down, but the only problem is the only girl he could ever dream of being with is Libby Drake. Their paths finally cross when Libby risks her life to save Ty's. Sparks fly and Libby and Ty finally give in to their desires. But while they're busy falling in love, someone is also busy trying to murder one of them. There are several suspects but the climactic moment finally reveals, to their shock, the person behind the attempts on their lives.

This was an entertaining read but I'll warn you that Ty Derrick is not someone you will like very much. He's stubborn, critical of Libby's (and her sisters') gifts, and a basic pain in the butt. I sometimes wish Libby didn't end up with him. Regardless, this is a great story albeit a bit predictable.

It seems to just be a marketing scheme to try to get us to spend more on books. I've caught a couple of chapters and its interesting, but not enough to look for the books that include it.

New Book Size
I totally agree. It's not like the regular sized paperbacks are difficult to read! They just want to charge 2-3 bucks more. I think I will avoid buying these size books in the future.

I can't to read Hannah's and Joley's book. Especially Joley's. It takes a special man (Ilya Prakenskii) to handle a badass nut like her. LOL
