A family of heroes, all in dangerous jobs, all irrevocably tied to those they love. Read about the Marino clan in this fast-paced, emotional new series, To Serve and Protect, by NYT bestselling author Kathryn Shay. 

Gabe Marino has been a disgraced Secret Service agent since his advance team in South America fouled up. After he helps the president solve a case involving his sister, Gabe is on the verge of getting exactly what he wants: a spot on the coveted Presidential Protection Detail.  He’s known Macy Stevens and her son for years, helping her out after her agent husband was killed and befriending the troubled child. Just as Gabe is preparing to go to the White House, sparks fly between him and Macy. But he can’t give up his dream of restoring his reputation in the service and she can’t marry another agent who wants to spend his life in the kill zone. Exactly who is going to give up what to pursue this doomed romance? 

SAY YOU’LL STAY gives readers an in-depth look at training Secret Service recruits, a peek into the life of a boy with emotional disorders and the man who befriends him, and a tender love story that you won’t want to end. The book will have you pulling out the Kleenex.

    Great story! Surprise ending!
  • Good story but...

    By johnny-cs
    There were a few grammatical errors, but the thing that bothered me the most was the flow of the story. The sentence structure and the dialogue just seemed somewhat difficult to read. It is hard to explain but after reading best-selling authors, this was just not in their class.
  • I love this series!

    Wow. I love stories that have characters that continue on in subsequent books. This was no different. Say You'll Stay focuses on the relationship between Gabe Marino and Macy and her son Simon. They are friends but they both have feelings that have not been explored due to Macy losing her secret service agent husband and Gabe being his colleague. And her son Simon has some issues as well. Kathryn Shay writes the most beautiful and touching stories. I love that her heroes are protectors of community and country and we see sacrifices that are made. I highly recommend both this series and other works by this author!
