Novella 1: The Educators

A 21,000 word novella

In STILL THE ONE, Annie Jacobs has made something of herself after a rough adolescence. She’s 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.


“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.”

“I am a former high school teacher myself and the premise of this book sounded interesting. It was a quick but engaging read that I really enjoyed. The characters were well developed and very likable. I will definitely be finishing The Educators series by this author.”

“As always Kathryn Shay tackles what most see as unthinkable material for a romance novel and ends up with a winner of a book. Her characters are just so human! Another one I couldn’t put down. I feel guilty paying so little for such a good read.”
