Former friends turned lovers and a billionaire who changes both their lives with an inheritance…what more could two people want?

 

In the newest installment of the beloved Hidden Cove Series, Dan Collins is everybody’s favorite firefighter. He’s good at his job, is a nice guy and treats people well. But his life fell apart a year ago when his wife left him for a wealthy man. Thank God Dan has had Firefighter Lucy Coretta to lean on, both at work and at home. She’s brought him back from the brink of despair and has been there for him during all those horrible months after the divorce.

 

Unbeknownst to him, Lucy has been in love with him forever but kept it to herself. Then, when he split with his wife, she didn’t want to be a rebound girlfriend. One night, though, passion explodes between them and by the morning everything has changed. And not just in their relationship. A man comes to the door and hands Dan an inheritance from a wealthy billionaire for saving the lives of his godchildren years ago. It’s money, lots and lots of money. 

 

Unfortunately, the windfall doesn’t bring him happiness. It messes up all his newly made plans with Lucy and throws them both into a tailspin.

 

Praise for Kathryn Shay’s firefighter series:

 

“I couldn't put these books down. I'm a firefighter in Tennessee; some of this hit home to me. Thank you for a great series.”

 

“This collection of short stories had it all: mystery, romance, laughter and tears.”

 

“The stories not only get into firefighter’s lives, but there is very realistic and in-depth descriptions of the work they do and the training they undergo. It certainly gave me an even greater appreciation for our firefighters and policemen.”

Fate has been cruel to Lieutenant Jake Scarlatta. His father died when he was ten, his best friend stabbed him in the back and his marriage went sour. When he’s saddled with a female firefighter on his crew, he knows trouble is coming his way again.

 

Chelsea Whitmore is a pariah in the RFD. A stellar firefighter and competitive weight lifter, she assumes none of that will matter this time around either. When Scarlatta says he’ll help her fit in, she doesn’t believe a word he says. She plans to keep her head down and her heart safe from more bruising.

 

But when she’s accused of one rookie mistake after another on the line, that she knows she didn’t make, all hell breaks loose.

 

If that isn’t bad enough Chelsea finds herself falling for Jake. And he feels the same.

Can things get any worse?

CLOSE TO YOU is the story of Secret Service Agent CJ Ludzecky, who is assigned to the coveted Vice Presidential Protection Division, guarding the Second Lady of the United States and her two children. After overcoming a rocky start in the Service, CJ is out to prove herself big-time. There's no room for men in her life, especially not the Second Lady's charming, sexy, sensitive brother, Aidan O'Neil.

Back-dropped by the hustle of New York City, the political world of Washington, D.C. and the pastoral scenery of the Finger Lakes, CJ tries to protect her charges, while Aidan tries to persuade her to let him into her life. The invasion of the press, a hostage situation involving the Vice President, a former gang member and a kidnapping attempt all move the story—and CJ and Aidan's relationship—to a stunning conclusion.

Award-winning author Kathryn Shay delivers a powerful novel about two people whose undeniable passion for each other pushes them to take the chances of a lifetime.

“Shay's sequel to last year's SOMEONE TO BELIEVE IN continues to explore the powerful emotions and at times heart-wrenching issues associated with the O'Neil family. Attraction can develop at the most inconvenient time, and for these characters, it comes down to making serious life choices. Always a dramatic and engaging storyteller, Shay never disappoints.” RT Book Reviews 

 Welcome to The Ludzecky Sisters, a brand new contemporary romance series from NEW YORK TIMES bestselling author Kathryn Shay. These six beautiful blond sisters try to make their way in the world after a tragedy strikes their family.

Dr. Jared Creswell, a professor at Mount Mary College, always believed he and Ana would last forever. He’s never loved anybody like he loved her.

When their daughter is stricken with a rare kidney disorder, both Ana and Jared must come together to see her through this difficult time.

Praise for Kathryn Shay romance novels:

“Shay is one of the most talented authors on the romance scene. Her books are always intelligent, her characters realistic, and her plots believable.” The Romance Reader

Welcome to The Ludzecky Sisters, a contemporary romance series from NEW YORK TIMES bestselling author Kathryn Shay. Follow these six beautiful blond sisters as they try to make their way in the world after a tragedy strikes the family. Each book has a cameo appearance by one of the sexy heroes from Shay’s beloved O’Neil series.

 Magdalena Ludzecky is a career woman extraordinaire. A child prodigy, she’s worked her way into a successful private equity firm by the time she was twenty-four. Seven years later, she’s still the gentle, good-hearted sister who hasn’t forgotten her roots, but in business she’s a force to be reckoned with. She’s a woman who has everything, including Logan Price, her coworker and her best friend outside of the family. They support each other through tragedy and loss, vacation together and make million dollar deals together.

But suddenly, they find attraction growing between them. And no, they both think, this can’t happen! They like the status quo. An office romance is unthinkable. It doesn’t seem to be up to them, though, as fate intervenes and brings them together as lovers. Yet fate can be cruel, too, and pulls them apart when Logan’s circumstances change dramatically. Does this friends to lovers romance have a chance or are Logan and Magdalena going to lose each other forever?
