The Loner 
Hello to all at Romance Lives Forever.
There’s some material a writer just can’t resist—hidden secrets,
past crimes, reunion stories, and high school settings.
Most of us graduated from high school with a fist pump in the
air, glad to be on our way to bigger and better places. But chances are, that like
me, you’ve been back to high school countless times as a reader or a moviegoer.
You’ve spent time in Salinger’s Pencey Prep, Knowles’ The Devon School, Joanne Harris’s
St. Oswald’s, and Rowling’s Hogwarts with its ever-changing faculty of dark arts
teachers, and in a long list of film high schools when you’ve watched Fast Times
at Ridgemont High, Ferris Buehler’s Day Off, Dead Poets Society, The Outsiders,
Pretty in Pink, Sixteen Candles, Clueless, 21 Jump Street, or Twilight.
Why the fictional fascination with high school—that time of “the
acutest miseries” of unrequited love and social awkwardness, insiders and outsiders,
and those of us looking on from the sidelines? Basically, I think we are drawn to
these stories because the high school setting lets us experience a familiar sort
of suffering without pessimism. Or maybe we’d like a do-over, a chance to correct
the old mistakes from our more enlightened grown up perspective. High school’s emotional
intensity comes with a vivid sound track of popular tunes, and a visual track of
the fashions and flavor of a specific time. But whether it’s a 60’s or 70’s, or
an 80’s or 90’s experience, it’s a time of suffering and joy intermingled from which
most of us emerge triumphant. There’s a happy ending!
That emotional landscape struck me as the perfect setting from
which to launch my separated lovers on a path to reunion. Where high school is concerned,
most of us have what Austen calls, “retentive feelings,” feelings that
are easily revived by an old yearbook picture or a few bars of a song. So it is
for Will Sloan new billionaire and Annie James his lost love. When Annie and Will
put on their nametags at a Canyon School reunion event, the feelings come rushing
back for a second chance at first love. I hope you’ll root for them to get it right
the second time around.

About the Book

The Loner is the first book in Kate Moore’s (multiple RITA nominee)
newest series, The Canyon Club. Gatsby meets Persuasion in a story of sex and money
in L.A. as a self-sufficient loner, new billionaire Will Sloan, dares to cross the
divide of privilege to claim his lost love.
Pride
Loner Will Sloan, son of a waitress and a dead rodeo cowboy,
former scholarship student, new billionaire, is back in L.A., land of palm-lined
drives and fiery sunsets. His friends urge him to jump into the hot city dating
scene, but a chance encounter at a school reunion revives a powerful past love.
He’s never forgotten Annie James…and this time around, he swears he’ll do the walking
out.
And Persuasion
Widowed young, Annie James believes she’s recovered from the
early heartbreaks that left her single and jobless at 24. Ten years later, she’s
got a job, a house, and a personal passion helping at-risk kids. Then she steps
up to do a favor for a friend and help a poor boy win a scholarship to the Canyon
School. Doing so unlocks the door to the past, and to the one man who could break
her heart again. This time, though, love will conquer all.

About the Author

Kate has lived most of her life along the California coast. That
experience has made her a jeans-wearing, toes in wet-sand, married to a surfer,
fog-loving weather wimp, with a hint of East Coast polish from spending her college
years in Boston. Family history connects her to Irish and English immigrants, Cornish
miners, gold prospectors, and adventurers who sailed around Cape Horn bound for
San Francisco.
When she’s not reading, writing or brainstorming, Kate walks
in the redwoods, feed birds, collect books, apples and leaves; she watches tele-novellas
on Spanish-language TV and immerses herself in all things English. Her favorite
food groups are butter, brown sugar, dark chocolate, and red wine. Kate’s early
literary influences were The Little Engine That Could, The Little Red Hen, and Winnie
the Pooh. Austen, Heyer, Chaucer, and Homer came later and inspired her to put that
first plot on paper.
Kate’s heroes are honorable, virile outsiders with some grand
ambition; her heroines are practical princesses, who drive those edgy loners into
love with good sense and good sex.
Her family and friends offer endless support and humor. Kate
says her children are her best works, and her husband is her favorite hero.
