About the Author
I have always loved romance. Reading it, writing it, and watching it on TV. I got hooked on romance novels when I was 14, when I told my mother that if it wasn’t a bodice ripping cover, then there was no sex in the book. She believed me since she’s a mystery fan and was never going to read a romance to find out if I was lying. I’m now up to over 4,000 read in the last 20+ years. I possibly have a problem and I don’t care. I take my Kindle with me everywhere. All those books on one device in my purse make me feel like Mary Poppins. I originally wanted to write historical romance due to my deep love of Regency historicals. A love so deep that I actually convinced my husband to get married over the anvil at Gretna Green and he agreed.
But due to a mishap at my bachelorette party, a quirky Facebook post a year later, and some determined friends, I have ventured into the world of contemporary romance and I’m loving it. I get to be snarky and funny, and don’t have to worry about those pesky chaperones that follow a heroine’s every move in historicals.
Breakout (San Francisco Strikers Book One) by Stephanie Kay
Penny Connor is putting the pieces of her life back in logical order. At least that’s the plan. Six months ago, her world imploded when she walked in on her fiancé with another woman. After calling off her wedding, she spent a week acting completely out of character in the Tuscan countryside with a scorchingly hot man. They didn’t even exchange last names.
Ethan Hartnell has grudgingly returned home. He's got an image to fix after being traded to the San Francisco Strikers, due to some questionable behavior. He plans to keep his nose to the ice, focusing on the career he loves. Everything is going according to plan, until he walks into a friend’s bar and sees her. She’d left him in her bed in Italy, with a note, and run.
Which is exactly what she does when they see each other again.
It should be a sign.
So why does he keep chasing her?
This is an 83,000 novel with a HEA and NO cliffhanger!
This series is connected with the Love by the Bay series, but each book can be read as a standalone.
