NEW YORK TIMES bestselling author Kathryn Shay knows teenagers and puts that knowledge into creating a contemporary romance series about successful women who were once troubled teenagers.

"Fans will enjoy the return of the Serenity House residents, and can only hope for a second-generation series one day!” Word Weaving

Welcome to SERENITY HOUSE, a series of stories about women who spent a part of their adolescent years in a group home for troubled girls. Each story explores what effects their dysfunctional backgrounds had on them. As you might guess, trust—not being able to trust—is a big issue for all three. But with the help of those who love them, each woman overcomes her difficult beginnings and becomes the person she was meant to be.

In PRACTICE MAKES PERFECT, Paige Kendrick is a successful doctor who keeps people at a distance and refuses a relationship with hunky doctor Ian Chandler. But Ian won’t stop until he gets what he wants—Paige! And because of his assertiveness, he almost destroys their chances of a life together.

In A PLACE TO BELONG, Darcy O’Malley and Hunter Sloan have more in common than they know when they meet at her daycare. Both have troubled kids, both grew up as outcasts in their hometown, and both find a deep and driving passion for the other that cannot be denied.

In AGAINST THE ODDS, troubled Anabelle Crane fell in love with Nathan Hyde, the town’s fair-haired boy. He broke her heart and she left town to become an undercover cop. But now, she’s back to guard him from a stalker. Some things haven’t changed, though, and Anabelle and Nathan find that the passion they have for each other has not died!

“For readers like myself who have been a bit disappointed with the quality of the genre of late, Shay’s latest might as well have antidote stamped right next to the Serenity House logo.” The Romance Reader

A great read
December 6th, 2013
The three books deals with very difficult issues however the writer handles it beautifully. The struggles and triumphs were set against well written love stories with strong heroes. I love the author's ability to write with such objective but still cause you to want to turn the page to see what happens next. A very real take on very real life situations with a great love story.
