A Safe Harbour by Moira Rogers

Title: A Safe Harbour

Author: Moira Rogers

Published: Samhain Publishing, 2010

Pages: 84

Summary: During the bite of the Great Depression, sole female dominant Joan Fuller struggles against the rise of cruelty among her alpha counterparts. The men tolerate her interference--until she breaks from the pack and allies with a witch and a vampire. Now the Boston alpha intends to bring them all forcibly back into the fold--and teach her a lesson she may not survive.

Seamus Whelan and his werewolf bootleggers intend to retire from smuggling and savor their fortune, but first they must do a favor for an old friend: escort some female wolves to safety. An easy job, if their leader wasn't a prim ex-debutante with enough power to challenge Seamus himself. Chance makes them allies; powerful need makes them lovers.
Together, they have the opportunity to build a sanctuary for their kind, but first they must free themselves from Joan's past, and the powerful man who would see her destroyed.  (Taken from Goodreads)

Thoughts: I’m not always the biggest werewolf fan but I have had this sitting around on my computer for a really long time and I decided that I should just read it.  My feelings on A Safe Harbour are pretty neutral really.  I didn’t love it but I didn’t completely hate it either.

I thought that the story was quite interesting.  It was quite different to what I’d usually read.  It was set in the time of the Depression and it had a female leader werewolf, which is very unique I might add.

The characters were alright, they didn’t stand out really but I’m never really a person who pays attention to the characters too much anyway.  I thought that Joan and Seamus had an interesting relationship however.

Overall, I thought that A Safe Harbor was a short, interesting read and fans of werewolves would enjoy.
