“Powerhouse author Shay follows up AFTER THE FIRE with another dramatic and dynamic thriller. Her complex and unforgettable characters breathe life into this truly intense novel.” RT Book Reviews

Fire Chief Noah Callahan can’t understand what’s going on in his department. A series of arson fires, broken equipment and unusual accidents plague the firefighters. It’s no surprise when he comes under investigation by Captain Eve Woodward from the Office of Fire Prevention and Control. She arrives in Hidden Cove believing he’s guilty, but soon begins to respect, understand and care about this very good man. A second storyline follows hotshot Zach Malvaso as he befriends, then falls in love with tough, aloof firefighter Casey Brennan. Together Casey and Zach confront their demons and alter the course of their lives.

About the author

Kathryn Shay is a lifelong writer. At fifteen, she penned her first 'romance,' a short story about a female newspaper reporter in New York City and her fight to make a name for herself in a world of male journalists - and with one hardheaded editor in particular. Looking back, Kathryn says she should have known then that writing was in her future. But as so often happens, fate sent her detouring down another path. Fully intending to pursue her dream of big city lights and success in the literary world, Kathryn took every creative writing class available at the small private women's college she attended in upstate New York. Instead, other dreams took precedence. She met and subsequently married a wonderful guy who'd attended a neighboring school, then completed her practice teaching, a requirement for the education degree she never intended to use. But says Kathryn, "I fell in love with teaching the first day I was up in front of a class, and knew I was meant to do that." Kathryn went on to build a successful career in the New York state school system, thoroughly enjoying her work with adolescents. But by the early 1990s, she'd again made room in her life for writing. It was then that she submitted her first manuscript to publishers and agents. Despite enduring two years of rejections, she persevered. And on a snowy December afternoon in 1994, Kathryn Shay sold her first book to Harlequin Superromance. Since that first sale, Kathryn has written twenty-one books for Harlequin, nine mainstream contemporary romances for the Berkley Publishing Group, and two online novellas, which Berkley then published in traditional print format.Kathryn has become known for her powerful characterizations - readers say they feel they know the people in her books - and her heart-wrenching, emotional writing (her favorite comments are that fans cried while reading her books or stayed up late to finish them). In testament to her skill, the author has won five RT BookClub Magazine Reviewers Choice Awards, three Holt Medallions, two Desert Quill Awards, the Golden Leaf Award, and several online accolades. Even in light of her writing success, that initial love of teaching never wavered for Kathryn. She finished out her teaching career in 2004, retiring from the same school where her career began. These days, she lives in upstate New York with her husband and two children. "My life is very full," she reports, "but very happy. I consider myself fortunate to have been able to pursue and achieve my dreams.

Army veteran Beckett Sloan is just trying to make it through the day. After having spent twenty years in the service, he was given an opportunity to join the fire department in Hidden Cove, NY, on an elite crew called the Rescue Squad. There’s one catch. He has to attend a support group for firefighters, police officers and veterans with PTSD, a malady which caused the breakup of his marriage and the estrangement of his son. At the first session, he meets Lela Allen, a former army medic, who’s divorcing her army husband because of his inability to manage his own post traumatic syndrome. Though Lela and Beck are attracted to each other, they resist it. When both their children show symptoms of PTSD, common in kids of sufferers, a lasting relationship between Lela and Beck seems doomed. But fate has other things in mind for them, for their children and for two veterans of war whose experiences are also featured in the book. With the backdrop of a modern fire department and exciting fire scenes, this highly charged emotional drama will bring tears to the readers’ eyes as everybody struggles through this untenable situation.

Fire Department Psychologist Jack Harrison has spent his life helping firefighters in Hidden Cove deal with firefighting deaths, PTSD, broken marriages, the fear of spouses for their loved ones, and a variety of firefighter romances. He is especially beloved by the Malvasos, as revealed in the previous family saga novels. But when he goes to upstate New York to train incognito with a recruit class, he meets Captain Tess Righetti, unaware of her connection to the famous Italian family. And he clashes big time with her about her stern approach to teaching the recruits. 

Then, one night after she is injured, their contact unexpectedly explodes into sizzling passion, but because of circumstances, Jack never contacts her again. Until she moves to Hidden Cove. Tempers flare, sparks fly and fireworks follow them everywhere. Readers will be surprised at the twists and turns of the seventh book in the Hidden Cove firefighter series.


Praise for Kathryn Shay’s Firefighter Books

“Inspiring and emotionally invigorating…a true hero’s tale.” RT Book Reviews 


“This powerful, emotionally realistic book is the first of Shay's series about the men and women who put their lives on the line every day and how that dedication and commitment affect all those around them. Poignant and compelling, this novel reinforces Shay's well-earned reputation as a first-rate storyteller.” Shelley Mosley, American Library Association. 


“A superb contemporary romance that grabs you in the prologue and won’t let go until you’ve read the final page. Bravo, Ms. Shay!” The Romance Readers Connection

“One of the best running collections on the market today.” A Reader


 In ALWAYS AND FOREVER, a contemporary romance, Patrick O’Neil has always taken his responsibilities to heart. The first sibling in a passionate Irish family, he’s there for his four Irish brothers and sister to listen, console and sometimes give them a swift kick in the butt. But his relationship with his wife Brie has been tumultuous from day one, and it hasn’t changed in nearly twenty years. Both bear scars from their past. But when Brie finds herself in the most terrifying situation of her life, it’s Pat she needs during and after it. Backdropped by New York City, an authentic Irish Pub in Greenwich Village, the politics and romance in Washington D.C, this family saga will tug at your heartstrings and keep your pulse pounding. Edgy, sexy and emotional, the conclusion to the O’Neil series will surprise the reader in its emotional intensity and unique plotline. 
Reader praise for the O’Neil family books: 
“I have read all of the O'Neil books. I just couldn't get enough of this family. I laughed, I cried & fell in love with all the characters.” 

“As each O'Neil book comes out, I find myself drawn more and more into their world. I'll be waiting very impatiently for the last two brothers' books.” 

“I loved getting to know the whole family. I wish there were more books on the rest of the brothers.” 

“Ms. Shay is such an excellent writer. No one can create families with sibling relationships so true-to-life: funny, sweet, petty spats, taking criticism from them that you wouldn't take from anyone else.” 

“I thoroughly enjoyed this series. There was romance with suspense, espionage & modern-day political trials that made the stories very enjoyable.”
