After ten long years Jefferson Clay was back. But now he was a different man. Leaner. Mysterious. Pained. Something else had changed, too. The pint–sized tomboy who'd tagged along after him at his family's ranch had matured into a beautiful woman.
Emily Nichols had been hopelessly in love with Jefferson ever since she could remember. And now this gorgeous, enigmatic man was sending her heart further into a tailspin, awakening her woman's passion as no other man could. But would Emily's love be enough to bring Jefferson's deepest, darkest secrets into the light and convince her wounded hero to stay with her forever?

"I fell in love with the hero, Jefferson Clay, when I was writing Stay...," Allison says. And readers fell in love too. Romantic Times heralded her first novel with their "Top Pick of the Month," awarding it with a 41/2-star rating (out of five), calling it a "love story packed with emotion from gifted new storyteller Allison Leigh."
Stay... received nominations for Romantic Times Best Books of 1998 in two categories: Best Special Edition, and Best First Series Romance. Allison was even further honored and delighted to learn that Stay... was a Romance Writers of America RITA finalist for Best First Book.
Since then, there have been more releases from Silhouette Special Edition, all equally well received by her readers and consistently appearing in both the Golden Quill Award of Excellence and the Holt Medallion. Her sixth book, Married to a Stranger, will be released in July 2000, and another book follows in December.
Born in Southern California, Allison has lived in several different states. She has been, at one time or another, a cosmetologist, a computer programmer, and a secretary. She has recently begun writing full-time after spending nearly a decade as an administrative assistant for a busy neighborhood church, and currently makes her home in Arizona with her family.

Harlequin should have added that to this book's cover. Stay... is the book that starts Ms Leigh's Men of the Double C Ranch series -- and what a beginning! I found the characters, both major and minor, very engaging. Being a member of a huge nuclear family, the dynamics of the Clay Family was very familiar, making me nod my head or ginning or both. I went through the heartaches of Jefferson and Emily right alongside them and was an entire cheering section of one when they both finally achieved their Happily Ever After (For Now). I totally enjoyed this book. To the keeper Nook it goes.
