" Spend your life with me, Hannah. Grow old with me. We can sit on the porch in our rockers and I swear, baby, at the end of it all, you'll know no one could have loved you more or better. I can give that to you. I swear I can, baby. Love me back, Hannah." -Jonas

I was torn on the rating for this book, because it was a little dry in some points, but it really won me over by the end of the book. I loved the connection between Hannah and Jonas. They truly are soulmates. Their lives are enriched by each other and strengthened by the bond that they share.

Both Hannah and Jonas suffered horribly, and yet still believed in their love for each other. In the end, this made the book a winner for me.

I really appreciated the intense bond of sisterhood that the Dra
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

I loved the first 3 books in this series, enjoyed book 4 but with this book, book 5, it took me three tries to finish it. Overall I enjoyed it but I felt like i really had to push through the first half. I think its partly because of the pairing. It was obviously from book 1 that Hannah and Jonas are going together so this came as no surprise so think it was partly that i found some of the journey there during the book a little tedious. That being said as it progresses and we get to know Hannah, ...more

Paranormal romantic suspense with some disturbingly violent knifing scenes.
4.5 stars! Gripping, suspenseful, bittersweet and beautiful. I had almost given up on The Drake Sisters series, but since Freehan is such a popular author I decided to try one more book (I felt books 1 and 2 were enjoyable and sweet, but nothing special).

Based on this book, I can see why Feehan is beloved.

Hannah was violently knifed, and Jonas showed that he loved her regardless of her scars. That's basi

Hannah Drake’s been in love with Jonas Harrington since...forever. But since the tall, dark and handsome sheriff can’t seem to lay off the insults and his overbearing attitude, she prefers to keep her mouth shut and continue loving him from afar.

Jonas Harrington’s been a part of the Drake family since he was little. And that’s how long he’s known Hannah Drake was the one. But first her elusiveness and then his dangerous lifestyle kept him away...Until now.

This was even harder to get through than the last book and I despised it. I had to put it down several times to get through it completely. A lot of things bothered me with this and I don't want to overthink it, as these books seem to just drain me of energy and wasted time. Instead, I'm going to do something I normally don't do with reviews and simply list my annoyances with the book straight up without going into full on detail on why it irritated me.

Paranormal Romance
The hero has been in love with his childhood friend for his entire life. Not just any love but a desperate all consuming love that he's hidden from her. He doesn't believe he's good enough for her and his habit of putting himself in dangerous situations deters him from bringing her into his world. But when he almost dies one night-he finally sees that the tsunami of emotions is held back by a crumbling wall and suddenly everything he's been containing for all these years comes pouring out.

This by far has been my favorite book by: Christine Feehan in the series so far...I mean I still have like five more books to finish, but, for the first time I really felt connected to the character of Hannah and loved Jonas despite his controling nature and cocky banter here and there...I could honestly feel that this man loved Hannah with every single fiber of his being, you know, mind, body, and soul. And that to me is the one of a kind love that I think most of us as humans aspire to have at ...more
In my limited romance reading experience, most romance books are really bad at showing and really good at telling. Especially when it comes to characters. You learn that someone is trusting, not through actions or character development, but because you are told over and over.
There is no worse offender than Safe Harbor. I looked up some appeal terms for this book in NoveList and one of them was 'dramatic'. That is the Understatement of the Year (do you see what I did there?). Another one of the

I just don't get all the great reviews about this book. Now, granted, this is the only book in this series I've read. Maybe if you have read all the others, you would be more into it.

I actually read 3 other books while reading this one. I would stop because I was so bored, read another book in a few days, then pick this one up again. Some parts were so bad, I was skimming through the pages and skipping chunks.

The book started pretty action-packed, but once Jonas was back in town, it went down hi
There was too much bickering between the h/h in this story for my taste. No sexual tension that had been building with the series, either. This book was chalked full of paragraphs that were all one sentence long. WTH?

Extreme amount of repetition which begs me to wonder if anyone even bothered to read through the finished product prior to publication. Very disappointing for This Reader and fan of Christine Feehan.

I demolished this book in a single day.

It was highly enjoyable and I really like the relationship between Jonas and Hannah. Also the foreshadowing of things to come was interesting as well.

I did like seeing how Hannah gained strength and how Jonas was able to support her. I also like seeing the camaraderie between the sisters and Jonas and Jackson. My main pet peeve is that as the sisters fall in love, they drift away from the next novel. Hannah, Joley and Elle were the only sisters with significant page time. I do also wish the other fiances would come in more. Overall, it was a decent romance, and I could see each book standing on its own, but they also weave together subtly.

I won't even try to deny my love for this type of relationship. Jonas and Hannah have been fighting from the start. It never quite got to the truly hate each other stage but it definitely supplied me with my favourite trope and I could not wait for this book.

I'll start by saying this was not what I expected. I was expecting a book where they continued to fight and we saw a slow move to something more but it goes a completely different direction which in retrospect makes a lot more sense.

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 pu

This book is very VERY lucky to get 4 stars. I say this because I have enjoyed this series thus far, but I wanted to throw this book across the room so many fucking times it isn't funny.

Going into this series I was anxious to read Hannah's story. I was so anxious I put Until I Die by Amy Plum down to read this book, and for what, complete and total disappointment. A heatbreak.

The thing I hated was the fact that Hannah was almost killed. Sure every other Drake sister was almost killed in the ot

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.

Part of the 'Drake Sisters' series and another awesome book!

I truly understood Hannah. I understood how she felt, before and after a traumatic event. But she held her own. A strong character, however insecure, she still pushes past it, learning who she is on the inside.

And Jonas... finally the man can admit what he feels! Long time coming, LOL! And it was terrific! You felt the sparks between them all along and it was just a matter of time. And finally they're together!

This was my favorite book of the series thus far. I loved Hannah and Jonas. I had been waiting for their story and it was great. The scene with Hannah reading the letters from her sisters was the very reason I kept up with this series. The sisters' closeness as a family which brings them together as one makes the series so special. Very good. ...more

I was excited to finally get to Hannah and Jonas’s book because it’s been clear from the beginning of the series that they belong together. I wasn’t sure how much I’d like getting Jonas’s POV because he’s been very bossy and somewhat abrasive in previous books. It was a happy surprise that his POV gave the necessary backstory and look inside his head so I could really root for him. I didn’t need any persuasion to root for Hannah, but it was still eye-opening to get her POV. The sisters may all s ...more

I am a big fan of Christine Feehan’s Drake Sisters Series. I really enjoyed reading about each of the 7 sisters, and loved the interaction between them. I was sad to see this series end. However, at least we can get some tidbits about them in Christine’s new Sisters of the Heart series, which also takes place in Sea Haven.

Picking out my favorite of the Drakes wasn’t too difficult, as I had two absolute favorites, so it was just a matter of choosing which of the two I wanted to do. Who do I choo
Safe Harbor is the fifth book in the series. The story centers around Hannah and Jonas.

I was really looking forward to this story and the story was good but not great. The good thing was Jonas and Hannah finally figure it out and they go for it. This does not mean they turn sappy and they still get angry with each other and they both have a lot of fear, especially Hannah. This book also seemed centered more on Jonas than Hannah and I liked it, Jonas was full of guilt and turmoil, yet he was need

When I look in the mirror, I never saw beautiful. For this to happen to someone like me, it’s devastating, Jonas. I don’t want you to think it’s vanity, it isn’t.
