GoodReads Blurb:
The last thing Lev Prakenskii remembered was being lost in the swirling currents of a freezing black eddy off the coastal town of Sea Haven. Just as quickly, just as miraculously, he was saved—pulled ashore by a beautiful stranger. But Lev has no memory of who he is—or why he seems to possess the violent instincts of a trained killer. All he knows is that he fears for his life, and for the life of his unexpected savior.
Her name is Rikki, a sea-urchin diver in Sea Haven. She has always felt an affinity for the ocean, and for the seductive pull of the tides. And now she feels drawn in the same way to the enigmatic man she rescued. But soon they will be bound by something even stronger, and their tantalizing secrets will engulf them both in a whirlpool of dizzying passion and inescapable danger.

My Review:
I enjoyed this book. Rikki is a sea urchin diver that rescues a man named Lev from drowning in the ocean. Turns out he has a major head injury so Rikki brings him home with her to take care of him because of his refusal to go to the hospital. This happens to be a big deal because Rikki suffers from some phobias and has had several homes burn down in the past that resulted in deaths of people she loved. She is also a water element and is able to control all kinds of water. Because of the past she never allows anyone in her home from fear of another fire. She also has a problem talking and being around people. So having Lev in her home is a very difficult situation for her. Lev suffers from amnesia due to his injury but he is obviously some kind of assassin or spy. He is also very quit and antisocial, so they are able to relate to one another.  
Their relationship development is very hard. Rikki has a hard time making the changes necessary to include Lev in her life. Feehan does a great job building her characters and makes you really connect with them. I have to say that this book was very similar to the Drake Sisters series. This book is actually like an extension of the Drake series with mention of them in this book. The writing style was very typical of Feehan's work. I have read a lot of her books and enjoyed most of them but the books can be very similar to one another. Having said that. This is another good book by her and I think you will enjoy it. If you liked the Drake series you'll love this one as well. If you've never read any of her books before you will probably love this book. But if you are like me and have read a lot of her books and your seeing a pattern this book is not all that original. I'm going to give this book 4 stars.
