Safe Harbor is a lesbian romance and the first of seven stories in the Provincetown series.
Narrated with breathy uplift by Nicol Zanzarella, we follow Provincetown’s new deputy sheriff, Reese Conlon, a tough, smart, beautiful, and suddenly available woman. Sherrif Conlon’s swagger puts the women of Provincetown in a tizzy, but it is the brilliant Dr. Victoria "Tory" King who ultimately wins her affections. Yet the flame of new love is often at its brightest right before it flickers and dwindles down to nothing. Will the pair’s passionate relationship sustain the ordinary pains of regular life?
Several other subplots are interwoven in this poignant - and often very steamy – "slice of life" story.
A mysterious newcomer, a reclusive doctor, and a troubled gay teenager learn about love, friendship, and trust during one tumultuous summer in Provincetown. Reese Conlon, LtCol USMCR, is the new sheriff who has heads turning amidst speculation as to who will be the first woman to capture her attentions. Doctor Victoria King has been betrayed by love once and refuses to risk heartbreak again. Brianna Parker, the teenaged daughter of Reese's chief, fears her father’s wrath when he learns that she loves another girl. As these three women struggle to live and love in freedom, they risk their hearts and souls to give one another a safe harbor.

I'm Audible's first Editor-at-Large, the host of In Bed with Susie Bright -- and a longtime author, editor, journo, and bookworm. I listen to audio when I'm cooking, playing cards, knitting, going to bed, waking up, driving, and putting other people's kids to bed! My favorite audiobooks, ever, are: "True Grit" and "The Dog of the South."
Radlyffe’s particular brand of tough ladies, and opposites attract lesbian romance, always draws me in.
In “Safe Harbor” we are in Provincetown where the city’s new deputy sheriff is a cut above. Tough, beautiful and mysterious she's the envy of her co-workers and catches all the ladies' eyes.
Her counterpart Dr.Victoria Parker is reserved and reclusive, but there’s smoldering chemistry that increases with every meeting.
Radclyffe’s story is a satisfying emotional experience with well drawn characters and not a few surprises in the plot.
Nicol Zanzarella’s reading is smart and sexy. I could feel the sea breeze in her voice.
rambunctiously soft spoken.
Maybe two stars was a little harsh for story but it was getting so over done towards the end maybe not.
Two things put me of here the repetitiveness of the story the same fell and dialog was getting a bit thin, I always enjoyed and looked forward to Radclyffe's story's in the lesbian short stories audible has but perhaps that's the problem length,filling holes in her story's with sex seances that are not terribly imaginative ,the last few I have read fell like it's a race to get to the end rushed and clunky.
Right if you have decided that Radcyffe is for and you don't care for my opinion that's cool but please beware of this narrator for some reason she takes a sharp breath before every sentence I was amazed she didn't pass out from lack of oxygen I found it very disruptive perhaps you like like that kind of thing but personally I'm done...
"Hard headed but sweet"
yes I would, the book is enchanting, captivating, and exciting. Radcliffe always keeps me on my toe and wide eyed.
Tori was a great character. I really love the way she showed her love even though she did not want to admit how much in love she was with Reese.
I really enjoyed when Reese and Tori first kissed. It showed how much they both really cared for each other, even though Tori ran from the affections afterwards.
At first I was not really into the book but then it really hit me and i couldn't wait for the two to get together
All of the Radcliffe books are really enjoyable. I look forward to listening to many more of his books in the future.
