Mama, Please dont die. were the last words John Avedisian spoke to his mother. All John could do was hold on tight to his little sister Anna and run, into the midst of death that had befallen the Armenian people. Trying to escape the Ottoman Turkish soldiers, John lost hold of his sister. He would never forgive himself for this. John had tried to find Anna, but it was only when he was introduced to a man called Kerkin, that he would, after nearly thirty years had passed, have a chance of finding her. Safe Harbor traces Kerkin's search for John's sister, traveling through England, Spain and finally the eastern parts of Turkey, circa 1944, at a time when the world was in the throes of war. Having seen the ruin of his beloved homeland, John had always worked to recreate Armenia, especially the area known as Karabakh. Relying on the dedication of his grandson David, and leaving his accumulated wealth to him, would be John's legacy. The Turkish Secret service had other ideas. They would seek to deny any assistance to Karabakh, using whatever means necessary.

If he stays, she's in danger. But if he leaves… All Mike Ryan can tell her is his name. Revealing any more to this beautiful stranger would put her in danger.

But it has been the best few weeks he's ever known. For the first time, Mike can imagine having a real life, a real identity, a real future. Stevi has done more than save him. She's inspired him. And that's why he has to go. The safest thing he could do for all of them is to disappear….
Fantasies aren't supposed to come true. What happens when they do? Workaholic, Carrie Marks, leads an uneventful, predictable life.

Until, on a rain-soaked night, a hero wrenches her from the brink of disaster as she crosses the street. Nick Casey is everything she's ever dreamed of in her fantasies and nothing like any man she has ever dared to date. Then her life spins horribly out of control. She's fired from her job. Her rent check bounces. Her bank account is wiped out. Her credit record is trashed. Nothing makes sense. She is thrust into an escalating nightmare. Someone has stolen her identity. Carrie doesn't know whom to trust. Can this stranger who rescued her once help her now? Yet what is his connection to her ex-boss? And how can she resist the hero of her fantasies when his wacky housekeeper, his moonlighting lawyer, his alien nephews, his gorgeous ex-girlfriend and even his skeptical sister all seem to be conspiring to drive them together?
Photographer William Hubbell's Seasons of Maine was unequaled in capturing the beauty and diversity of Maine. Now, in Safe Harbor, Bill turns his artistic eye to Maine's hundreds of islands, inlets, coves, bays, and harbors. These draw countless gunkholers who spend each summer searching for unspoiled harbors that provide safe refuge from the sometimes-stormy, frequently foggy waters of the Gulf of Maine.
SAFE HARBOR. That's what Martha's Vineyard has always been for Holly Anderson, folk artist, dreamer and eternal optimist. If she could just afford to buy the house and barn she's renting, fall in love, marry the guy and then have children as sweet as her nieces, life would be pretty much perfect. Poor Holly. She has so much to learn. Havoc arrives on the island in the guise of stunningly beautiful Eden Walker, a gold-digging con woman who's already stolen the nest egg of an elderly couple and who promptly seduces Holly's sixty-something father while she's in hiding. Holly's mother is devastated, her sister won't deal with it, and Sam Steadman--son of the now impoverished couple and a man who has more than one reason to hunt Eden down -- is furious. After a bumpy start, Sam and Holly join forces to track down the elusive Eden and reclaim both treasure and father. But hearts and minds collide, and shipwrecked emotions are strewn along the way. Will Holly and Sam ever be able to trust one another after the not-so-merry chase?
