Safe Harbor - Christine Feehan

Now, she tells the story of Hannah, one of the Drake sisters – all gifted, enigmatic, and seductively enchanted...

One of seven daughters in a line of extraordinary women, Hannah Drake has been the elusive object of affection for. Jonas Harrington for as long as the rugged sheriff can remember. If only the stunning supermodel was driven by a passion other than her career. But Jonas isn't the only one with desires for Hannah.

From the shadows has emerged a vengeful figure who stalks the beauty with one terrifying purpose: to strip her of all she is and destroy her. Only one man was destined as her protector. Now, out of a storm of danger, Jonas must guide the woman he loves from a sinister darkness that threatens not only Hannah, but the_ entire Drake family.

It's been a while since I read the first books in this series, I actually thought I had only read two but once I started the third one I realised I had already read it and jumped for the next one I had (I know I jumped book nº 4 but oh well) and I really enjoyed it.

This is Hannah Drake's story, the supermodel, and the man who has loved her since childhood. Unfortunately they never revealed their feelings to each other because Jonas' feels his profession is too dangerous and he doesn't want to put Hannah in danger and Hannah never thought he could love her. But things have gone for long enough and after Jonas almost dies and Hannah is the one who saves him with her paranormal abilities he feels it is time to stop putting himself in danger and finally speak to her about his feelings.

The problem is that they both have a strong personality and they spend half the time yelling with each other, once you get past that and see that's actually how Jonas communicates it becomes kind of fun to watch their interaction. Jonas is a typical Feehan alpha male but he and Hannah do talk a lot about life and what they feel for each other. But Hannah has a modelling contract to fulfil and she asks Jonas to go with her but his alpha male hates all those man gawking at her and he refuses and of course they have another fight.

While Hannah is at the fashion show's after party she is the savagely attacked by a man with a knife and both Jonas and Sarah, the eldest Drake sister can only watch it on TV. She is saved by Ilya Prakenkii, the bodyguard of a well known Russian mobster who seems to have a wild fixation on Joley Drake, the Drake sister don't trust him because of the effect he has on Joley but after this they are indebted to him.

What follows is Hannah's recuperating from the attack (she did seem to recuperate very quickly but since she had some paranormal help I'm not complaining) and working on her relationship with Jonas and trying to find who was behind the attack and why. I thought Feehan did really well with the suspense of who was behind it. She seems to direct us one way and in the end it was something totally different. Also one of the nicest things is the interaction of the sisters, they are a family and they care about each other. I can't wait to get to Joley's story as I'm sure she and Ilya will definitely set some sparks flying.

Grade: 4.5/5


  1. This is part of the Drake Sisters series, right? I have to read the first two ones you gave me.

  2. Right! Looking forward to see what you think of them. My favourite so far was Turbulent Sea, Joley Drake and Ilya Prakenskii story. He was quite a dangerous and appealing guy. ;-)

  3. I've just finished the first book and loved it, too bad it was so short. Funny thing is I met Jonas and was immediately drawn to him, I can't wait to read this book. ;-)

  4. Ahhh what wonderful news!!! I'm so glad you enjoyed it. And now you have a whole series to look forward to not mention that Feehan is going to write a spin off series that I am really enthusiastic about.


I love to chat about books and stuff and I would love to hear from like minded readers. Please do leave me a comment :-)
