Promises To Keep by Kathryn Shay

By-the-book Secret Service Agent Joe Stonehouse is assigned to work with rebel Agent Luke Ludzecky on a task force to combat school violence. When they go undercover in Fairholm, NY, to a school flagged for an outbreak, they find that the institution is indeed in danger. But when Joe butts heads with principal Suzanna Quinn, and teacher Kelsey Cunningham gets close to her new student Luke, all their personal lives are turned upside down. In Book 1, PROMISES TO KEEP, follow the fast-paced plot ripped straight from the headlines and bask in the love stories that will make you believe in romance.

Don't miss all five books in the Lean On Me Series, heart-wrenching stories of teens in jeopardy and the adults who've dedicated their lives to helping them: PROMISES TO KEEP, MICHAEL'S FAMILY, TRUST IN ME, WHEN A MAN LOVES A WOMAN and A PRICE WORTH PAYING.

Praise for PROMISES TO KEEP:
"Shay does an admirable job with a difficult subject, writing about school violence with sensitivity and realism and without shying away from any of the hard issues, such as the balance between the students' protection and their civil liberties." Shelley Mosley Booklist

"Kathryn Shay's storytelling grabbed me on page one and her characters held me until the very last word." Barbara Bretton, USA TODAY bestselling author.

"Kathryn Shay is a master of her craft. PROMISES TO KEEP will hold you on the edge of your seat with an ending you'll remember long after you turn the last page." USA TODAY bestselling author Catherine Anderson.

"Kathryn Shay's first mainstream romantic suspense is a gripping story that will haunt readers with its authenticity. And those who pick up a copy will find not one, but two absorbing romance threads, full of sensuality and fire. If ever the label of "sure thing" were deserved by a book, PROMISES TO KEEP is such a book." The Romance Reader

"These are all living breathing people you might meet anywhere at any time. The action and suspense balance well with the love, so that neither plot is skimped upon. I eagerly await her next release." Huntress Reviews

"A wonderful work of contemporary romance, with a plot ripped straight from the headlines. Kathryn Shay never disappoints." NEW YORK TIMES bestselling author Lisa Gardner

Three years have passed since Secret Agent Joe Stonehouse's beloved niece was killed in a school shooting. Since then, he has been dedicated to stopping that kind of random violence. His latest assignment has him masquerading as a guidance counselor and the uncle of a troubled youth, who is another agent, in a high school. His mission is complicated when he meets the principal, Suzanna Quinn, an attractive single mom to whom he finds himself drawn, despite the complications such a romance would create. On top of that, his "nephew" has definitely more than student teacher relations in mind when he sees Kelsey, one of his teachers. As the two couples dance along the fine line between business and pleasure, a plot to have another Columbine is forming in their school. Romance could compromise the whole mission, and love between any of them could endanger not only the mission, but their hearts and careers as well. ***** A timely, current novel that is easy to identify with due to the relevance contained herein, it is a welcome addition to the shelves. Ms. Shay should have broken into the full length novel genre long ago. Her talents are always finely displayed in the deep emotion her words evoke and her well thought out characters. These are all living breathing people you might meet anywhere at any time. The action and suspense balance well with the love, so that neither plot is skimped upon. I eagerly await her next release. ***** REVIEWER: Amanda Killgore

Katherine Shay has a new fan. I enjoyed her style of writing. She does not disappoint. This book was especially moving in light of the school tragedy in Sandy Hook, CT in Dec 2012. I was very impressed by the information provided.

BORING! Timeline doesn't match with the O'Neil series and Luke's sister C.J. The Luke in this book was suppose to be a "legend" within the agency, not hardly. Did like Joe.

GJRA. I loved this book, hard to quit reading & sleep. I loved that Ms Shay can tell 2 romances in one book & not have to buy a book for every character in the one you are reading. I smiled and cried in the suspenceful romance. 3rd book in a row by this great writer. 340 pages GJRA

I cant find the right words to explain how great this book is. School violence is a scary reality. The topic is so well covered with real facts and alarming statics. You fall in love with the characters and it brings home the sacrifices our brave law enforcement make to keep us safe. They are often forgotten heroes. This book touches your heart in many ways. Its a must read.
