NEW YORK TIMES bestselling author Kathryn Shay writes fascinating, realistic contemporary romances. Her specialty is troubled teenagers. A teacher in a public school for years, she knows kids and the men and women who teach them, as evidenced by this new book in the Bayview Heights series!

 

From gang kid, to famous heart surgeon…John Battaglia is back with his own book. So is the love of his life, Meg Mancini, who he abandoned in his quest for the brass ring. Delve into the world of heart surgery and, once again, into the brutal society of gang life.

 

John is proud of his rise in the ranks of the medical field. At only thirty-six, he’s performed more surgeries and had more success than most doctors in the middle of their careers. He hasn’t forgotten his roots, though. The Lansing family is still near and dear to him. He’s happy and content with his life. But his outlook changes when he sees Meg again at a shelter where they both volunteer. Old feelings deluge him as their past together resurfaces.

 

Meg wants nothing to do with hotshot Johnny Battaglia. She was crazy about him years ago, but he broke her heart when he chose a different path from the one they’d planned together. Though she’s satisfied with her life, she’s never found anyone to fill the hole Johnny left in her. But she knows better than to let him get close again.

 

However, when gang member Dash Bodine, who resembles Johnny in looks and circumstances, brings John and Meg together, they can’t avoid each other. And when they’re together, passion flares. Is that enough? Or will past mistakes preclude any kind of happily-ever-after?

 

Also, look for appearances by the beloved O’Neils, who are also involved in gang prevention.

I saw her first.

Blonde. Gorgeous. Feisty.

I was smitten. 


But it didn’t matter because she chose him and he was my best friend and roommate. I’d never be able to compete with that, so I pushed her away instead. It was easy when she lived hours away, and I didn’t have to see her every day, but then she moved in with us. 

Now, I’m screwed.


To her singing in the shower every morning, dancing in the kitchen while she makes coffee, and doing yoga in our living room, I can’t stop thinking about her in all the wrong ways. She’s not mine and never will be, but that doesn’t stop me from wanting to push her against a wall and claim her mouth.


She’s constantly on me for making messes, bringing chicks home every weekend, and being a smartass when their PDA gets on my nerves. Considering neither of them know how I feel, it’s not fair for the way I act toward them. I should move out so I can get over her for good; however, the selfish part of me can’t let go. 


But then the unthinkable happens... 

When my best friend dies in a motorcycle accident, the two of us are left to grieve our loss together. Instead of pushing her away, I pull her closer. 


Just as we come to terms with our new reality, she finds out she’s pregnant with his baby. 

And I’m left to make the hardest decision of my life...

Charming, sexy, and wears a panty-melting smirk.


Working on the ranch helped build his solid eight-pack and smoking body. He’s every girl’s wet fantasy and he knows it too. Alex doesn’t follow the rules of your typical playboy bachelor. After wining and dining his dates and giving them the best night of their lives, he always sends flowers and calls the next day—even if it’s to say, let’s just be friends. His mama taught him manners after all and his southern blood knows how to be a gentleman. Still, that isn’t enough to tame the wildest of the Bishop brothers.


River Lancaster has finally met the man of her dreams. Too bad after six months of romantic bliss, she finds out he’s married. With a broken heart and blind rage, she books herself a ticket to Key West, Florida. Tired of cheaters and liars, she’s set on escaping to forget he ever existed. Who needs a man when there’s an all-you-can-drink margarita bar, anyway? That’s what she tells herself until she bumps into the right guy who can make all those bad memories disappear.

But couldn't he have chosen another day to cheat with her twin sister? Now Hannah's headed as far away as she can get from New York and her public humiliation. No one will expect to find her at a dude ranch in Lonesome, Texas … but just maybe she can find herself there.

When a stuck-up beauty walks into the Lonesome Dove Bar, full of rough truckers and ranch-hands, she's trouble in red cowgirl boots--trouble that Liam doesn't need. Especially when he offers her safe haven from a storm on his ranch, and she stirs up memories he'd give anything to forget. Liam has lost too many people he loved--his wife and son on a dangerous stretch of Texas highway, and men under his command in the Afghan conflict. This beauty will be gone in a New York minute as well … unless he asks her to stay.

Attraction flames between them, hot as the Texas sun. But when their pasts cause problems, can they trust each other enough to believe they can share a future?

“You can’t go wrong with a Chris Keniston book!” RaeAnne Thayne, New York bestselling author of the Haven Point series.


Shenanigans and romance abound in the new Hart Land series from USA TODAY Bestselling Author Chris Keniston. Fall in love with the lakeside small town of Lawford, retired Marine Corps General Harold Hart, his artistic wife Fiona, matchmaking housekeeper Lucy, and his nine single granddaughters. Did we say single? Well not for long!


Firefighter Cole McIntyre figures his plum assignment to a placid lakeside small town is just his good luck. Until an early morning incident confines him to a cabin. Add a beautiful, pastry baking redhead, and keeping up his regimented lifestyle and healthy diet proves to be a bigger challenge than he’d expected. Especially since it’s more than Lily’s sweet baked treats he’s finding irresistible.


Another matchmaking fiasco behind her, Lily Nelson has sworn off men. Which is just fine since her lifelong dream of owning her own bakery is almost within reach…maybe. Now more than ever, she needs all her wits about her to balance her noisy, no-boundaries friends and family, find a signature pastry, and look after a handsome firefighter. Not that Cole isn’t easy on the eyes, he just might be too easy on her heart.


As a Special Bonus Lily includes a treat from Lily's Recipe Box!
