A family of heroes, all in dangerous jobs, all irrevocably tied to those they love. Read about the Marino clan in this fast-paced, emotional new series, To Serve and Protect, by NYT bestselling author Kathryn Shay. 

 

Special Agent Whitney Dwyer sees the world in black and white, much to the chagrin of her beloved cousins, the Marino brothers. Her life is terrific: a supportive family, a varied job with mega opportunities for advancement and a fantastic friends-with-benefits lover. Beneath her tough exterior, though, lies a woman who was scarred in deep and dark ways by the horror of an accident that killed her parents. But Whitney’s life is knocked off its axis when she loses the man she now realizes she loves. To complicate matters, that man, Special Agent Max Blackwell, has made a decision he regrets immediately. Still, he and Whitney cannot come together again until she deals with what plagues her and he discovers what he truly wants out of life. 

 

ONLY WITH YOU is back-dropped by the bombing of a federal building, a case assigned to Whitney and Max during their personal turmoil. The book also delves into the inner workings of the Secret Service and the danger federal agents encounter every day. Toss in a sizzling relationship and readers will find this story a page-turner.

Welcome to The Educators, a riveting contemporary romance series about today’s schools by NEW YORK TIMES bestselling author Kathryn Shay.

As is her trademark, sizzling romances are back-dropped by controversial, complicated and sometimes dangerous situations.

In STILL THE ONE, Annie Jacobs has made something of herself after a rough adolescence. A single parent, she’s now the mother of twin boys, a respected and well-liked English teacher and has good friends. But when her former high school teacher, Dylan Kane, comes back to town, Annie’s carefully created world starts to crumble. She and Dylan have a past, one which almost destroyed her. Now, he wants to be the next principal of her school. Annie’s afraid their previous relationship will endanger the job she loves. She’s even more fearful that her feelings for Dylan will rekindle, or worse, never died.

Dylan doesn’t know he almost destroyed Annie all those years ago, but he feels guilty about developing feelings for her, a student! He did the honorable thing by leaving town, but now he’s back, unaware that she teaches in the school where he’s applying for a principleship. But Dylan is sure of one thing—this time, he can never leave the wonderful woman she’s become.

If you like books about teacher romance, high school romance, reunion romance and teacher student relationships, look for the other two stories in the Educators series: SOMEONE LIKE YOU and MAYBE THIS TIME

Reader Praise for STILL THE ONE:

"Kathryn Shay never shies away from tough or controversial subject matter. I thought all the issues in this book were handled with care, and ably so. She made both characters immensely appealing, so I was really rooting for them to make it work. It was as difficult for the reader to find a way out of their predicament as it was for Annie and Dylan. But Shay comes up with the perfect (and only, IMO) solution available to them." Lori Sherden, Goodreads

“I love this series by Kathryn Shay. She writes such passionate stories that take you into heart and lives of the story.”

“I am a retired librarian from a middle school where I worked for 25 years. Ms. Shay's books make me feel like I am right there again.”
