Single In Sitka
Odds – Are – Good Series – Stand Alone Romance
By Katy Regnery
** This will be a full length novel
A single Dad. A personal ad. What could possibly go wrong?
When Seattle journalist, Amanda McKendrick, pitches a new story about the increase of bear attacks in Sitka, her newspaper sends her north for two weeks. While there, she answers the personal ad of single dad, Luke Kingston, looking for a little no-strings-attached fun to pass the time.
But the sweet, widowered father of three—who just happens to be a smokin’ hot state trooper—turns out to be a lot more than Amanda bargained for. As the days go by, she wonders if it’ll be possible to return to Seattle without leaving her heart behind.
Single In Sitka by Katy Regnery was the perfect modern day romance that most readers can relate to. A single father of three children and a single woman with a successful career whose biological clock is ticking. It’s the story of real life where car accidents change lives, settling for someone because it’s easy is the norm, being afraid to start over where the rules have changed in the dating world, and trying to fit in an already made family where parenting is a new concept are very real realities in today’s world.
Luke Kingston lost his wife and mother of his children in a car accident two years ago. As a single father of three children he has had to primarily focus on his family. Daily routines change as the children grow and their maturity levels evolve with puberty. While they all have learned to adjust to the changes in life the one thing they have not experienced is someone new coming into their lives. Luke is ready to enter the dating world but he’s not sure how to or how much of himself he wants to give. He’s old fashion and doesn’t believe in Tinder or swipe dating apps. When his sister places an ad in the dating personal ads of a popular area magazine, Luke is mortified until he meets his potential date. She’s a beautiful and genuinely nice woman who is in the same position he is. They both need a Rebound date to help get them back in the saddle again. She’s only in Sitka for a few weeks. It should be easy. What he didn’t count on was falling for the sexy reporter and wanting more than a mutually satisfying hookup.
Amanda McKendrick spent five years with Mr. Wrong. When he cheated on her and left because he just wasn’t “feeling it anymore”, her eyes were opened. She began to re-evaluate what she wanted in life while realizing her biological clock is ticking much faster. Needing to get away from Seattle, she proposes a storyline about the Bear Attacks in Sitka and how their environment is being affected. The paper proposes to do a fund raiser to help the Bear Refuge . She decides to take a chance at re-entering the dating world while she is in Sitka where nobody knows her. What happens in Sitka can stay in Sitka. When she responds to Luke’s ad the rules of the dating game are thrown completely out the window. She is falling hopelessly in love with Luke and his kids. The only problem is their lives are in two completely different worlds and there are three other people involved in decision making.
I absolutely loved Single In Sitka by Katy Regnery because it was a contemporary romance that today’s readers can relate to. Katy has a way of making any kind of romance fun, charming, and emotional. She has a talent of creating characters who are perfectly ordinary people with their own personal strengths and flaws. This is what makes their story extraordinary.
I highly recommend Single In Sitka by Katy Regnery.
