I have the rest of the series, but I'm waiting for this volume. I notice that B&N does that a lot they will be missing a volume in a series. Please fix this!

Supermodel Hannah Drake hides the torture she has to endure of being in the public under a facade held with help from loving sisters. After a horrific attack and nearly being killed, Hannah receives help from an unexpected source. Sustaining her just enough until help arrives in the form of her loving family and the love of her life, Jonas Harrington. After witnessing the heinous attack on the woman that he has loved from early childhood, Jonas decides that he will never leave Hannah alone and unprotected ever again. Allowing her enough to come to the realization that he is what she needs, Jonas pours everything he is into making her see that he will forever love her supermodel or not!

I have read all of the Drake series and this is probably my favorite. When I started the series I couldn't wait to read Hannah's story. Only my compulsion to read books in order kept me from jumping ahead.

I've read the rest of the series on my Nook and this needs to be available also. No fair skipping books in a series thinking it will generate more "paper" book sales. I use my Nook exclusively, so either make all the books available or none. Thanks

Hannah and Jonas' story was perfect. It lived up to what I expected and hoped. From page one it picked up quickly and never had a dull moment. The plot was a rollercoster of drama and passion. The conflict was dramatic and never dull. Loved this story!

Have read this novel so many times before and I still can't get over how good it is. Christine Feehan writes some mean books. Keep it up.

I have read all the books in this series in order. Each one gets better than the one before. Can't wait for the next.

Finally the Hannah/Jonas book! I had been looking forward to this one all series and it did not let me down. I would actually give it a 4.5 as I am enjoying Joley/Ilya book more but they are both excellent reads. I will warn people though there are lots of intimate moments in these books (easy enough to turn past). I thought you should know in case you have never read one of her books!

On the surface this wasn't a bad read. A story about a psychically gifted model (Hannah) who is one of the Drake Sisters, who is in love with Jonas Harrington for a long time but unsure about where their relationship would go. Ends up scarred and chased and unsure of her future. He steps in as her protector and tries to help her.It's not a bad read on the surface and there are certain shining moments in the story but it shows a lot of what is cliched and bad about romance these days.She's tiny, overwhelmed by his size. Okay, it's a given that she is going to be small given that she's borderline anorexic because of stresses from her agent. However the anorexia and agent are pretty quickly dismissed. This is not the way either of these things run.He's prime abusive husband material. I'm not talking the "will strike a woman" type but he continuously talks about her being his "possession"; gets manic when she's not near him; talks about her future as if she had no choice and generally comes across as being both controlling and obsessive. Not generally good signs for a mature relationship! But that appears to be what Christine Feehan finds attractive in a man and what her fans want. Me, it creeps me out a bit, more than many straight horror stories.

Safe Harbor is book 5 in Christine Feehan's Drake Sisters series. The story revolves around beautiful Hannah Drake and Jonas Harrington.Hannah Drake is an internationally known supermodel. Born the fifth daughter in the magical Drake family, Hannah can command the winds and is a very powerful spell-caster. Despite being forced into the limelight by her impressive career, Hannah has been harboring an enormous secret her whole life long: she is painfully shy can have crippling panic attacks. It is only with the help of her six sisters that Hannah is able to function in the real world, but they are not her only strength. Sheriff Jonas Harrington has always been like a brother to the Drake sisters. They all grew up together, and Jonas has unceasingly been a protective figure in the lives of the extraordinary women, but his relationship with Hannah is different. From the time they were children, Jonas knew Hannah was meant to be his. The danger in his job always kept them from being together, but when Hannah is suddenly exposed to deadly peril, Jonas will do anything to keep her safe.I have to say, Safe Harbor is possibly my favorite of the series so far. The relationship between Jonas and Hannah has been building for the past 4 books, and I was so happy to see them finally together. After all the arguing and teasing between the two of them in the other books, I was very happy to see them finally get past the bickering. In the other books, I kept waiting for one of Hannah's sisters to clue Jonas in and let him know about her panic attacks - it was so irritating, they think of him as family, they know how much he loves Hannah, but they still don't tell him the truth. When he saw her hysteria for himself, he was so understanding and caring to her. As in all of Feehan's books, the action was full of non-stop excitement from start to finish. I had a hard time putting it down to go to sleep last night. I couldn't wait to see who was behind all the threats, and how they would go about getting out of harm's way again. I thoroughly enjoyed Safe Harbor. I felt that Feehan did an excellent job of resolving the tension between Hannah and Jonas from the previous books, and it gives me great hopes for books 6 & 7.

This is the 5th story and 4rd full-length novel in the Drake sisters series. The first two were novellas. In order, they're "Magic in the Wind" (in Lover Beware), The Twilight Before Christmas, which for some reason I thought was an anthology, so it's still in my TBR pile, Oceans of Fire, Dangerous Tides, and Safe Harbor.The seven Drake sisters all have magical abilities. This story focuses on Hannah, who's a supermodel. Though appearing in public is very difficult for her, she pushes herself to do it because she thinks it's what her sisters want and she doesn't want to let them down.Jonas is a long-time family friend, the local sheriff, and sometime government operative. He's also always been in love with Hannah, but thinks she's too good for him, and hesitates to expose her to the danger of his jobs.Danger finds her anyway, when a crazed killer attacks her with a knife on national television, as Jonas watches, horrified, from the other side of the country. She's saved by the mysterious Prakenskii, who has powers of his own, and designs on sister Joley.I very much enjoyed this story. Jonas's tendency to bark orders when he's worried rather than explain his concerns is even more pronounced here--understandably so, since his emotions are out of control. The danger to Hannah and the way the various suspense plots come together were exciting enough to hold my attention.I loved the emotional aspect, which is where I think this story shines. Jonas demonstrates that beneath the bossy exterior, he truly loves and understands Hannah--in fact, he understands her better than her sisters, and admires her courage in continuing a career that takes so much out of her, even while he's nagging her to quit because he knows she's not happy. Hannah's journey of self-discovery is lovely to see--she finally realizes that her sisters love her for herself and want her to be happy, and she takes responsibility for having hidden her unhappiness to try to please them.Her post-attack trauma is, of course, what accelerates her growth, and it's very realistically done. She doesn't get over it right away--people don't. And that touches on a societal concern I have about people being expected to recover instantaneously from trauma or grief or whatever. Instead, she recovers gradually, and the reactions between Hannah, her sisters, and Jonas were true and emotional.My problem with the book was that it could really have used a good editing. The repetition and backstory slowed down the pace to a crawl in spots and seriously interfered with my enjoyment. It's probably better to read this book at a skimming pace--reading to get the gist of the story rather than reading every word. Which is so odd. In some books, Feehan's writing is so lush and rich that not only do I read every word, but I slow down my reading to savor them. This isn't one of those.

Good series not as good as her dark series but not a bad read, this one I had trouble getting through for some reason it was slow, not sure but I like the other ones more this one just dragged on me.

I really wanted to love this story, but it was just o.k. After seeing the mounting tension between the main characters in the previous books, I was waiting for the big impact. I felt like it was a bit anticlimactic, but that may be because I had it so built up in my mind.

Safe Harbor - Christine Feehan (8/10)Paranormal Romance. A nice story, neatly told. An improvement over the last volume I in the series (which I liked but required a serious suspension of disbelief). This one was more realistic - as far as you can call a book with witches, magic, the Russian mafia and super models realistic!

Absolutely couldn't put it down . So far all the Drake Sisters books have included love, action-packed adventures, sexy steamy love scenes, and enticing magical happenings. Looking forward to more of the same.

It took the two of them long enough!! There, got it off of my chest. Jonah and Hannah were the most frustrating couple, I thought they would never get together. When they finally did, the story was fantastic. Very fast paced and exciting. Very nice job!
