Safe Harbour (A Drake Sisters Novel) book 5 by Christine Feehan.
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 at the rugged Sea Haven sheriff can remember. If only the stunning super-model 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 protection. 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.
Hannah Drake the supermodel, that’s all she’s ever heard, never just Hannah. But beneath the beautiful face, she faces crippling shyness and a stutter brought on by the shyness. She hides it well, no one except her sisters know of her illness, but they don’t know the other stuff, the eating disorder, and the lack of sleep. Well no one but Jonas. The overbearing, mean mouthed sheriff, sent to plague her. His high handedness, and his ability to wreck havoc on Hannah’s life, it’s just not fair. Why does he have to be the one that makes her heart pound? And why can’t she get away from him?
Jonas has known the Drakes sisters for a very long time. They became his family when his father died, and his mother became ill. The house became his refuge, and the Drake’s felt like sisters, except for Hannah. Jonas always knew they would be together. With her he felt safe.
And when Hannah is attacked. Jonas is afraid she will die and leave him. But the sisters pull together and bring Hannah back from the brink of death.
Rehab is a long, slow and painful process. Both mentally and physically, her sisters are there to see to her physical well-being, and Jonas does what he does best, nag and push her (but I think she needs that sometimes)
So who did this to her? Was there something else behind the attack? There are a few suspects, from the crazed reverend (they showed his flock what a pervert he was) to the obsessed fan. She has a few people who don’t like the Drake sisters.
Throughout the previous books, we saw how much Jonas antagonised Hannah. His cutting remarks made me want to slap him. But Hannah’s way if dealing with him did make me chuckle.
This has to be my favourite book in the series. You know almost from the start of this series that they will get together. Love the interaction with the sisters. The chemistry sizzles between Jonas and Hannah. And all the crazy moments in between.
