Book Description

Welcome to three of Kathryn Shay’s high school dramas. A teacher in a public school for years, she knows kids and the men and women who teach them!

“Few authors can turn such a biting social commentary into an uplifting novel. Ms. Shay does this with the best books of the year.” Affaire de Coeur

Bayview Heights has one of the best educational systems in the state due to the dedication of teachers, administrators and the community. But they have their problems, too. Gangs are encroaching from the city, the town newspaper is criticizing them, and an angry board member objects to some innovative classes. These issues frame three intense romances where teachers must overcome personal issues as well as professional ones.

In COP OF THE YEAR, Captain Mitch Lansing is assigned to Cassie Smith’s high school classroom and sparks fly. He’s by-the-book, and she’s unorthodox and innovative in her teaching methods. But when Mitch develops an unstoppable bond with her students, Cassie finds her attraction to him irresistible. “An emotionally powerful tale that leaves you breathless.” RT Book Reviews

In BECAUSE IT'S CHRISTMAS, high school principal Seth Taylor is a hero to most people in town. But Seth has never forgotten the mistakes he made years ago with his students. And neither has Lacey Cartwright, because one involved her brother. But attraction then love flares between them and Lacey fears she’ll she lose what’s left of her family. “Rich characterizations and emotional intensity.” RT Book Reviews

In COUNT ON ME, Zoe Caufield and Kurt Lansing were once deeply in love—until he betrayed her. Now, Kurt’s back in Bayview Heights, running a clinic where her students volunteer, and he wants another chance with Zoe. But she’ll never trust him again, and there’s nothing he can do to win her back. Or is there? “A fascinating and emotionally gripping story.” RT Book Reviews

5.0 out of 5 stars Wonderful high school story and great characters. August 26, 2013
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
Reading a trilogy! Great. Book after book with interesting people and many many varied situations. Each book contained a wonderful story throughout and kept you turning the pages to see what would happen next. The school itself was absolutely brilliant and gave such a varied school curriculum especially for the kids that had problems - and there were many. The authoress showed a vast amount of psychology in my opinion, or such a book could not have been so brilliant. Her scope of understanding so many aspects of human behavior made her writing and her characters so very intriguing and interesting. In each book there was an extremely good story line with all sorts of situations and challenges both the students and staff had to contend with. Each book contained a romance and you found yourself sympathizing with every character and every difficulty they faced along the way. The following books in the trilogy didn't leave you wondering about the first set of characters, they were very tastefully included in the next books in an very endearing manner. The students got up to lots of good and bad things which made interesting reading, but their encouraged involvement in the school helped them immensely to become the young adults they were supposed to be. One of the teachers in the first book had been a rebel herself as a teener, so she could certainly engage and understand her students. They really loved and respected her and that's great when you have that sort of rapport with your class. The head of the school was also a great friend to the staff and really had the interests of the school and kids at heart and you love it when eventually he finds the love of his life and all they have to overcome to be together.

5.0 out of 5 stars Love, loved,and loved this trilogy! July 21, 2013
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
How can one resist falling for the characters in these books. Cassie, Mitch, Kurt, Seth, Lacey,Zoe, Johnny, Phillip, the Caulfield Chicks, and others represent a broad spectrum of people one would meet in a small community. The educational ans social issues raised are real as are the examples of some solutions and the deep complexities of the issues raised. No easy answers for any,but again with love we can move forward. As a former teacher and hopeful advocate of love, I recommend this trilogy.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great trilogy June 14, 2013
By Kelly
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
Ms. Shay is a wonderful author whom I truly enjoy. This trilogy is amazing! I loved the characters, loved the struggles that each character faced, and most of all I love how each book was based on a different set of characters with previous characters moving through the back story. These books are centered in real life situations and I found that captivating. It deals with real problems (hardships in school, gangs and the people who work with those kids). I definitely would recommend these reads to anyone

5.0 out of 5 stars Back to school for me! August 14, 2014
By ToxDoc
Format:Kindle Edition
An excellent depiction of the high school experience today. Well defined characters, fast and credible action. I graduated from high school in 1943 so this was a new experience for me. The author must be an excellent teacher to have such a thorough command of the curriculum, program activities and student responses. I felt as though I knew the characters in all three stories and lived vicariously their problems and triumphs. Teachers have always been my most admired professionals and these stories cemented that opinion. A thorough, interesting, and even fascinating Trilogy.. Time well spent for one interested in education and the development of character and personality.

More About 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."
