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. But are they against Libby or Ty. Each is determined to protect the other and the rest of the sisters are going to try to protect both.
With her sensual blend of paranormal romance and breathless suspense, NY Times best-selling author Christine Feehan boldly goes where no writer has ever gone. Now she introduces Libby Drake, of the magical Drake sisters-each mysterious, gifted, and enchanted by prophies of love.
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
4th in the Drake Sisters series. This is the story of Libby, the healer/doctor. I haven't gotten tired of this series yet, just wish I didn't have to wait so long for the next one. Definitely recommend especially if you like romantic suspense and paranormal stories.
This book is great because it has more than the typical "perfect" characters you see in other romance novels. They have different aspects to their personalities that make them seem more like real people. Libby is the most responsible and compassionate of the Drake sisters, but she's also insecure and is hurt by what others think of her, like Ty's cousin. Ty is such an average male, one minute you want to smack him for being insensitive and the next minute you want to kiss him for surprising you and being such a sweetheart. I would highly recommend!
I got hooked on Christine Feehan through her vampire series. A friend lent me a book, and I was hooked completely. I love the 3 series she writes, and as soon as a new book is out, I read it, my friend reads it, then another friend reads it, then I set it up for someone else to enjoy. EXCELLENT stories.
Of the the Drake Sister series that I've read this one is my favorite. Libby and Ty are equals on all levels. Ty is strong, smart, and sensitive which is sometimes rare in these alpha male dominated books. The villian in this book was very obvious from the beginning. I like the fact that Ty used to notice her back in school and admitted to having a crush. I love their family dynamic, it makes you wish you came from a large family.
This is the fourth book of the series, but the first I read. Got it in a box of books I swapped. I don't usually like witches and the paranormal but I thoroughly enjoyed this book, so much so, that I ordered the rest of the 7 book series. This is about the sister that is "the healer" Dr. Libby Drake, and the man she falls in love with, genious Ty Derrick. They have worshiped each other from afar for years, but someone doesn't want them to get married. They keep trying to kill both of them throughout the book. Has a happy and sad ending, mostly happy:) Great book!!
LOVE THE DRAKE SISTERS. MUST READ THEM IN THE CORRECT ORDER, IT DOES HELP TO UNDERSTAND REFERENCES. THERE ARE 6 IN THE SERIES AND LOVED ALL OF THEM HIDDEN CURRENTS IS THE MOST RECENTLY RELEASED ONE AND I READ IT IN 2 DAYS. FAB SERIES.
I love reading Christine Feehan. I share my books with my sister, and we have read eveything She has written. I can hardly put the book down when i start one. totally engrossed!!! And I sit on pins and needles waiting on the next one!
Never knew a brainiac could be so sexy. Course this braniac is a muscular action junky and he meets his match in the healing touch of powerful and compassionate Libby Drake. I love the way these magical sisters stick together, their men don't stand a chance! Filled with intrigue from the first chapter, I didnt know who done it till the very end. Couldn't put it down!
This was the first Feehan book I ever picked up & this book got me so hooked that I read the entire Drake Sisters series, the Ghost Walkers series, and all 17 Carpathian books. I highly recommend them all, even if Paranormal or Vampires are not your thing. Keep on writing Ms. Feehan, I think you are an amazing author!
I love this book. Christine did a wonderful job cooking this book up. It's full of suspense and humor and just the right amount of romance, which i'm not usually a fan of. Wonderfully written, would recommend to anyone I know.
This book was the story of Libby Drake Tyson Derrick. It was an intense read. Libby is the healer in the Drake family gifted as an empath and able to heal with her energy. Tyson is a skeptic being deeply enmeshed with science. He's a close-minded genius who eventually opens up to Libby in more ways than one. I loved this one of the Drake series the most.
I found this book to drag just a little. Libby and Ty are great together, I just thought the story line should of moved a little quicker. Also, there were a lot of sex scenes that were not well written. I really enjoyed the first 3 books in this set but this one just didn't stack up to the others.
A good and true to the story continuation of the series.
I enjoyed this one and the exploration of Libby's power, as she was the most intriguing on to me from the beginning (outside Elle of course)
I think this was well done and I have enjoyed this series from beginning to end, it was different enough from her Carpathians that, while she definitely has a thing for the Alpha male, the men weren't quite as grating as her Carpathian men tend to get when I read those books back to back. (don't get me wrong, I love the Carpathians, but that get to be a bit much if I don't take a break between books lol)
Anyway the differences in the series' are what made it easy to read the Drake Sisters one right after another.
I really liked this book. It is not so centrally focused on one character as it is a portrayal of the various challenges and hardships of the Drake sisters. Still, the romantic interest is on Libby Drake and there are a couple of, albeit far fewer than Christine Feehan's usual, steamy sex scenes. I was happy to see that change.
Another Drake sister book. This is Libby's story. Ty is a genius and she is the "good girl". Ty has always wanted Libby and she him and when they come together they make a great story. All of the sisters are in this book as usaual-they are always fun.
No stars from me--this was a USB find and I am a bit burnt out on Feehan at the moment. There have been several good review on this new three book series. If you like Feehan but don't want to get sucked into a 15 book series, this series may be more to your liking.
Libby Drake is pushing for her story to be told. I always enjoy visiting the Drake family so much. The book involves magic and of course trouble as the sisters can't seem to stay out of it much to the chagrin of their men. The book takes us from the Northern California coast to the steamy jungles of South America and returns to the town of Sea Haven. As always there is action and humor with the Drake sisters.
Release Date: June 26, 2006
Another great read from Christine Feehan. Hard to put down. I can't wait for the next Drake sister's story!!
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 Derick - until a tragic accidents 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.

This is the first book I have read of this author. I began it on our vacation drive, and my sister yelled from the backseat "Oh my gosh that's my favorite author!" I believe this is the newest book in this series and it really was great. Great story that you won't guess, great love story!
