This is another book for which I did not receive a RITA® Reader Challenge review, so I’ve rounded up some strong reviews for the purposes of this collection. I have not, however, assigned a letter grade to this review. This book finaled in the Paranormal Romance category.
Plot Summary: Off the shores of Sea Haven, a beautiful diver rescues a man from drowning, a man with no memory of who he is-or why he seems to possess the violent instincts of a trained killer. But soon, he and his savior will be engulfed in a storm of dizzying passion and inescapable danger…
This book has a 3.98 average at GoodReads.
I’ll be honest and say what intrigued me about this book was reading that the heroine had a form of high functioning autism. I thought this worked very well in the hero in Jennifer Ashley’s The Madness of Lord Ian MacKenzie so I was curious as to how it would work in the heroine in a contemporary. And I’m quite pleased to say for me it worked very well. There is no question that Rikki Sitmore has her share of ‘quirks’. She had a terribly sad childhood, losing her parents at an early age due to fire and having the nightmare of fires follow and destroy after that. She has finally found a home in Sea Haven, the same town setting as the Drake Sister series. She has found a family of sisters now; not sisters by blood, but sisters of the heart. She also has a successful job as a sea urchin hunter. She is drawn to water in many mysterious ways. For example, when having nightmares about the fires that have destroyed her life, all faucets in her home mysteriously turn on. She can manipulate rain and she is never completely at home unless she is diving in the ocean. Her life is going along as well as it can considering her quirks until she rescues a strange man in the middle of a ocean disruption. I know some of this sounds odd – it’s odd to write it, but trust me, when reading this book, it made perfect sense.
