Clarisse seeks refuge from her abusive ex-boyfriend on the Dilly Dally, her uncle’s old fishing trawler in Tarpon Springs, Florida. She doesn’t expect to find Mac and Sully, the Dilly’s sexy new owners, on board making love.
They’re at first startled by her appearance, then outraged by the injuries her ex inflicted. They insist she stay with them, and with nowhere else to go, Clarisse agrees.
Both men find themselves falling for Clarisse, but she can’t bring herself to completely trust Sully, a former cop, like her ex. She’s shocked to discover the men aren’t just lovers either, but full-time Master and slave in a BDSM relationship. As she learns more about their history and lifestyle, she uncovers her own hidden desires. When danger from her past returns, can Sully and Mac provide Clarisse a Safe Harbor?
Safe Harbor is the very first book in the Suncoast Society Series by Tymber Dalton. If you are a follower of this incredible series, you might want to know that this book is pre-Venture crowd. But the characters do appear in later books. I will say, this is one of my favorites in the series, though I love all of them and have favorites in the double digits!
We start off with Clarisse, who is on the run from an abusive boyfriend. He also happens to be a cop, which makes things more difficult for her when it comes to pressing charges. After hours and hours of bus rides, she ends up in Tarpon Springs, Florida, and hides out on her uncle’s boat. Or so she thinks, turns out, the boat is now owned by Sullivan ’Sully’ Niccoletto and Brant ‘Mac’ MacCaffery, a couple who she sees having some adult fun on the deck.
When trouble arises and they discover her on the boat, they decide to care for her. She ends up moving in with them. She learns a few things: they are in a Master/slave relationship, they aren’t gay, and she may just have a shot at true happiness. That’s if her ex doesn’t destroy it all first.
There’s so much going on in this book that I could tell you all sorts of stuff, but really, it’s so worth the read. Again and again. It’s how I found Tymber and got hooked! You will too!
