NEW YORK TIMES bestselling author Kathryn Shay spent five years riding fire trucks with a large city fire department, eating in their firehouses and interviewing hundreds of America's Bravest. Read the firefighter romance novels that resulted from her intense relationship with firefighters!

“The talented Shay offers another heartwarming tale of brave men and women. “Shelley Mosley, Booklist

Ian Woodward, one of the firefighter heroes of the 9/11 terrorist attack, lost the use of his legs on that horrific day. When Ian starts teaching at the Hidden Cove Fire Academy, he finds meaning in his life again. But he vows never to accept the love of beautiful Broadway star Lisel Loring—until a deluded fan starts stalking her. Disgraced cop, Rick Ruscio becomes her bodyguard, but it’s his community service at a local preschool, where he meets teacher Faith McPherson, that completely turns his life upside down. Both men must deal with their issues and accept the strong women who love them.

Praise for NOTHING MORE TO LOSE:

“I was profoundly moved by this book in a way that I haven't often been moved by a romance novel. It speaks of redemption, forgiveness and the transcendent healing power of love. I know that I will be reading this one again. All About Romance

“Once in a while a book grabs you so much that you can't think of anything else. You want to finish it because it's so good, yet if you do the characters will be out of your life. This book is an amazing story for anyone who has been touched by the 9/11 tragedy and how life is too precious to waste.” Christine Pearson

“NOTHING MORE TO LOSE is a strong entry in one of the best running collections on the market today.” A reader

Editorial Reviews

Fresh Fiction
"The final installment of Ms. Shay's Hidden Cove trilogy is a stupendous novel. The characters in NOTHING MORE TO LOSE are some of the most poignant and complex of the ones introduced in this series and their redemption and evolution are a pure joy to behold. It's one of those books that you can't put down once you start it. The author never disappoints readers as she immerses them in the intricacies, heartaches and joys of human nature and living life to the fullest. Keep them coming, Kathy!"
Best Reviews
"The Hidden Cove tales continue to provide superb romantic suspense thrillers while paying homage to firefighters. The current tale is terrific as Kathryn Shay employs multiple story lines tied together by Lisle and favorites from previous books return. Readers will cry for Ian, yet Ms. Shay does not paint a tearjerker or provoke pity tears for him. NOTHING MORE TO LOSE is a strong entry in one of the best running collections on the market today."
RT Book Reviews
"Award-winning author Shay has developed a truly appealing group of characters in her Hidden Cove books. Her ability to weave together multiple storylines adds to the richness of her novels."
Romance Reader Connection
"This novel should not be missed as it is one of the best I've read in a long time. Hats off to Kathryn Shay for creating a marvelous winner."

Once again, Kathryn Shay did not disappoint! I just love her character development and the twist in the plots. Here, she makes you wonder who the stalker is, and whether Ian can overcome his feeling of inadequacy to love again. And the addition of the disgraced cop Ruscio and his family just enhances the book. I recommend that readers read all three books in this series to follow the development of the characters.

This author knows how to catch and hook her readers with a story plot so strong you can't put the book down.

Sad, heartwarming, loving, teary-eyed, happy... The book touched me in so many ways, reading it a few days after the 9/11 anniversary made it even more poignant.

Inwardly and externally, Ian Woodward bears deep wounds. Though he feels useless, others disagree, and on the strength of their faith, this paraplegic young man who no longer can fight fires agrees to teach others how to be what he still is, the best. Then, the wounds on his heart are reopened when Lisel Loring returns to town. The young actress ostensibly is coming home to recover from an illness, but truthfully, she is fleeing a stalker. That's where Rick Ruscio comes in; seeking to remake his life after blackmail forced him to be a traitor, the ex cop hopes to find a measure of redemption or at least pay the bills by protecting Lisel. Yet just as much as Lisel believes in Ian, Faith McPherson believes in Rick. .......................................... *** These four lives intertwine and draw strength from one another across the pages of another moving novel from an author who is a sure bet for a good read at least 99 percent of the time. However, danger lurks just outside their circle, waiting for a chance to break them apart. ***

Firefighter Ian Woodward was a first responder to the Twin Towers tragedy. While many of his brothers and sisters died on 9/11, he lived but lost the use of his legs and had to learn activities for daily living. Two years later, the wheelchair bound Ian visited his sister in Hidden Cove, New York; he met and formed a friendship with actress Lisel Loring, but when she wanted to take it to a more loving level he withdrew feeling inadequate to be her lover.--- A year after fleeing from Lisel, Ian wonders what he has to live for although he enjoys teaching at Hidden Cove Academy. Lisel returns to Hidden Cove, but an out of control fan stalks her. She has hired disgraced former police officer Rick Ruscio to protect her. Rick is doing community services at a preschool as part of his conviction. There he meets teacher Faith McPherson, whose lust for life consumes him although he feels inadequate to be worthy of her love. As the danger from the stalker mounts these stubborn dumb males do not yet comprehend the strength of the females who love them.--- The Hidden Cove tales continue to provide superb romantic suspense thrillers while paying homage to firefighters. The current tale is terrific as Kathryn Shay employs multiple story lines tied together by Lisle and favorites from previous books return. Readers will cry for Ian, yet Ms. Shay does not paint a tearjerker or provoke pity tears for him. NOTHING MORE TO LOSE is a strong entry in one of the best running collections on the market today.--- Harriet Klausner
