Still The One by Kathryn Shay
Welcome to The Educators, a riveting contemporary romance series about today's schools by NEW YORK TIMES bestselling author Kathryn Shay. Veteran teacher Shay returns to one of her favorite settings and vividly portrays the teachers, administrators and students of Crystal Corners High School. As is her trademark, sizzling romances are back-dropped by controversial, complicated and sometimes dangerous situations.
"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...such a good read." A reader
In STILL THE ONE, Annie Jacobs has made something of herself after a rough adolescence. A single parent, she's now 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.
Dylan doesn't know he almost destroyed Annie all those years ago, but he feels guilty about developing feelings for her, a student! He did the honorable thing by leaving town, but now he's back, unaware that she teaches in the school where he's applying for a principleship. But Dylan is sure of one thing--this time, he can never leave the wonderful woman she's become.

Reader Praise for STILL THE ONE:
"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." Lori Sherden, Goodreads
"I love this series by Kathryn Shay. She writes such passionate stories that take you into heart and lives of the story."
"I am a retired librarian from a middle school where I worked for 25 years. Ms. Shay's books make me feel like I am right there again."
