If you’ve ever read the Drake sister novels by Christine Feehan, you’ve probably wished you could live in that great, magical house in Sea Haven — the one with the special gate that will only open for the right guy for each of the sisters! Feehan has a special page on her website devoted to the research she did for the Drake novels. She says the town of Mendocino helped her create Sea Haven. I’m visiting Mendocino now so thought I’d share a few pictures of the area. I did find the gate!!!! Actually, my husband, Gary, found it by chance. We were just driving down a side road and — boom! — there it was. However, the house in the novels is not here. It’s inspired by a French hotel. (Although, some of the homes here are pretty nifty anyway!) And CLICK HERE to read the interview I did with her on the Drake sister novels, vampires and why Alpha males rock! Also, her latest series, Sisters of the Heart, is also based in Sea Haven. The first book, WATER BOUND, was just recently released. So, more stories to come out of Sea Haven!
