A Love So Strong

Travel from the small town of Hyde Park, New York to the charm, glamor…and danger of Paris and Rome in these sizzling contemporary romance novellas connected by three stormy relationships — prequel novellas to the Serenity House Trilogy!

In CAUGHT OFF GUARD, Riley Sullivan and Jillian Kimball are on the verge of divorce. When Jill returns home from Paris a changed woman, intending to roadblock the final decree, Riley wants nothing to do with her. But as she perseveres, his defenses diminish and he remembers their sizzling and their softer times together. Will they be able to get past old hurts and betrayals? 

OPPOSITES ATTRACT picks up with Jillian’s sister Molly Sullivan and Riley’s best friend, Jase McKay. A free spirit, Molly fell for Jase, a somewhat uptight lawyer, despite the differences in their personalities and outlooks on life. But he broke off their relationship because he couldn’t open up, not knowing she was pregnant. When they’re miserable apart, he has to come to terms with his past and she has to forgive him for hurting her. Can they make this leap? 

In AN IMPOSSIBLE MISSION, Logan Kane owns the restaurant next to Molly’s store and supports her through her ordeal with Jase. But Logan is no ordinary man. Previously involved in THE ORGANIZATION, a black ops group, Logan is lured back to Rome by a dangerous mission. Unfortunately he has to work with former colleague Belle Sachetti, the woman who loved him then broke his heart like no other. 

Don’t miss these stories of love and loss and second chances that will take you on a rollercoaster ride of emotion!

Welcome to my website!

Dear Readers,

Welcome to the world of Kathryn Shay. I write contemporary romances that reviewers have called “heart-wrenching and emotional.” Many of my books are set in upstate New York, New York City, and surrounding areas.

You might have heard I write firefighter and teacher stories, but I cover a whole host of professions such as lawyers, Secret Service agents, CEOs, Irish pub owners, architects and police officers.

My work centers on hot, controversial: family problems, parents and children, friendship, troubled teens, school violence, infidelity and marriages in trouble, holiday stories and online dating. I hope you’ll peruse my website and get to know me (on my bio page and fun stuff) and the novels I write on the rest of the pages.

Best always,
