Editorial Reviews

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.

Publisher's Summary

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.

Our Kids... With Fierce Passion and Pride

The topic of loneliness and uncertainty of LGBTQ youth, our kids, is handled with grace and understanding. Some of us can still remember that time in our lives. Paired with that is the introduction to an adult love between the scars of one woman's heart and the near innocence of another's. If only love could be that brilliant, passionate, and simple. This is a Great series of stories filled with an equally great series of complex characters. Someday I'll visit Provincetown....

My favorite Radclyffe series!

What did you love best about Safe Harbor?

I love this book. I love this series. I personally found Radclyffe by mistake, I was tired or reading Nicholas Sparks books about straight couples. Great books but I wanted something I could relate to a little more. I started with the Honor series, then Justice Series and finally with the Provincetown Tales. These are by far my favorite. I love Reese. She is everything I wish I was so I guess I am like Bri. In Safe Harbor you get little pieces of who Reese is and there is so many different back stories that make you feel like this isn't a fictional character it could be someone who know. The characters really come to life. I had a lot more written then discovered I was writing spoilers so I deleted it. Seriously please read this book its amazing.

What did you like best about this story?

Can I say everything? I loved this book. I love this series. I think what I loved the most is the fact that while the book is about two woman falling in love, it touches on so many different social issues. It is just a beautiful story.

Have you listened to any of Nicol Zanzarella’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

No, but she did the entire series and she is great. Not as good as Betsy Zajko but leagues above Abby Craden. She has a beautiful voice and you can easily get lost in her voice and Radclyffes words.

Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

There was. I do not want to talk about it because it gives away some really special parts of the book. I would say in this book I can easily think of 3 different times I was moved.

Any additional comments?

I have listened to this series at least 4 times and am working on my 5th time. It is such a great story, I hope she writes more for it soon.

P-Town Romance

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.

I give up

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...

AMAZING

I can't beat enough good things about this book. Sorry no spoilers here.
This book was so well written, it brought out so many different emotions from me. I was so engaged I couldn't pull myself away. This book contains violence and hate. But it's written so you will feel their grief and joy and acceptance. most of all you all see how loyalty and love is the true cure for hate.
I'm off to the second book in this series. I hope you buy them as well you won't be disappointed.

Well done!

I truly enjoyed the writing as well as the character development in the story! My only complaint is that I'm not clear on where they landed in the end in terms of their living situation, but I hope to find out in the next book which I fully intend to purchase right now!

Not what I expected

Can't believe I listened to this whole book
The writing was very poor
The subject is not what was listed but about two women "finding each other"
Sexually explicit at times between two women and did not capture my interest
Dull story dull characters
Waste of time to listen to
Do not bother

Hard headed but sweet

Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

yes I would, the book is enchanting, captivating, and exciting. Radcliffe always keeps me on my toe and wide eyed.

Who was your favorite character and why?

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.

Which scene did you most enjoy?

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.

Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

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

Any additional comments?

All of the Radcliffe books are really enjoyable. I look forward to listening to many more of his books in the future.

Radclyffe- enough said

These books are churned out without any depth of storyline or characterization.
There's a few of these authors pervading the quality of writing and are modern Pulp Fiction done badly.
Choose original Pulp Fiction for a solid enjoysble-must read that again, try Three Women or the contemporary Gravity between us for a good read
I'm sure some people think Radclyffe is great, but not me, I prefer to fund quality fiction with normal names, less technically and more 'oh noo....it's ended and I want more, not 'ah, its ending, thankfully!'
Just my pov jus saying....

Enjoyed it but could have been better

Is there anything you would change about this book?

The narrator.
The constant long lingering drawn out sounding of the last word in every sentence can be annoying...

What did you like best about this story?

I loved that although it is very subtle this must have been originally a fan fic story. the dark hair blue tall heroine could be more obvious with a young gentle hazel bard :)

Who might you have cast as narrator instead of Nicol Zanzarella?

Tavia Gilbert without a second thought

If this book were a film would you go see it?

yup but doubtful

EXCELLENT ROMANCE READING.

If you like well written, exciting romance novels then i highly recommend this series. Radclyffe delivers great story lines that keep the tension, action and passion right there with you.
Small town life like you never knew it could be.
EXCELLENT NARRATION. WORTH THE CREDIT.
