A Safe Harbor gives us a quick read with characters we want to see together.
This short novella (only 88 pages) is the opening of Moira Rogers’ new series Building Sanctuary. These books will serve as prequels to the author’s Red Rock Pass series. Though, this novella doesn’t rely on readers being familiar with the other books.
The paranormal romance brings together two werewolves — a strong alpha female and an alpha male from another pack. Joan has always shunned the men of her pack, seeing how they’ve taken advantage of the female weres she protects. Her forthright nature stands out more here than in other werewolf books because the story is set in the early 1900s. Seamus, the alpha called in to help rescue Joan’s pack, doesn’t push her, treats her as his equal and is protective in the way we all (sometimes secretly) long for.
The novella flips between Seamus and Joan’s points-of-view. It’s a smart move as we get to know the handsome wolf is putting Joan first, and we get to experience them both falling in love. Also, racy scenes from both perspectives cover all the bases.
A Safe Harbor is a fun read, albeit a bit short. If the series continues with Joan and Seamus, I could see becoming invested in the characters. The second half of the book is the right level of steamy with a few blush-worthy moments.
And don’t worry, Moira Rogers delivers your happily ever after (HEA).
