Meet 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 sold her first book to Harlequin Superromance.


Since that first sale, Kathryn has written twenty-five books for Harlequin, nine mainstream contemporary romances for the Berkley Publishing Group, one mainstream novel with Bold Strokes Books and two online novellas, which Berkley then published in traditional print format. There are five million copies of her books in print. She has three never-before-published novellas, one firefighter anthology and seven full-length novels up on Kindle, Nook, SONY, iTunes, Kobo and Diesel.


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 Book Reviews awards, four Golden Quills, four Holt Medallions, the Bookseller’s Best Award, Foreword Magazine’s Book of the Year and several “Starred Reviews.” Her work has been serialized in COSMOPOLITAN magazine and featured in THE WALL STREET JOURNAL and PEOPLE magazine.


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.”

    This is TRASH!!!

    As a former IAFF member, full time firefighter & a female I was really looking forward to reading this book. It is nothing but TRASH and only amplifies the stereotypes that I had to battle against my entire career. This is degrading to ALL firefighters as it depicts them as being focused on sex, each other and personal matters instead of the job they are trained to do. If I could rate this a ZERO, I would.

    Thanks for warning

    I do not like bad language it's a sign of ignorance. Where is the romance in that, all I have to do is go outside for that. I want my fantasy to be clean. Deleting without reading

    Silly premise

    Its a slap in the face to women firefighters. How unprofessional the two main characters are! Coild have treated the chaaracters wih dignity, but chose instead to make the woman a simpering dolt and the man a pig. Nice job. You've managed to offend a lot of people

    Horrible

    This book burnt more brain cells in one sitting than a lifetime of drugs could. This is why women have such a hard time in the fire service. I am thoroughly disgusted.

    Don't bother

    ## This book was terrible. Language and sex don't bother me at all (to be honest, there was very little of both). However, I need chemistry between the hero and heroine which there wasn't. Neither one was very likeable and the writing style left a lot to be desired as did the ending. Don't waste your time!

    Really?

    As a firefighter, terrible book. Unless you want a random sex scene, I can not tell you how horrible this book is.

    I enjoyed this book!! Too many people are making comments about the bad language and/or the realness of the characters compared to real life firefighters... hello people, this is a BOOK! It doesn't claim to be based upon true events. I've known plenty of firefighters to know that people are people, regardless of their career; and being attracted to someone else is what it is!

    Great story.

    Great firefighter story, with a minor love story within. Well written. Kept your interest through the whole book. Somewhat addressed the problems of female firefighters too.

    Others may like it

    but it just wasn't my kind of book. I don't believe that two people who were that dedicated to their careers would act this way, nor do I believe that a reporter would spend all her time blogging about the fire department. Better books out there.

    It was "okay." And I use "okay" because I've read the author's original America's Bravest firefighter series from 10 years ago, which was much, much better (in my opinion).
