Amelia Montgomery has left her past behind her. With a beauty and fashion career that’s skyrocketing and a loving family around her, everything else is just junk in the rearview mirror.

When she has to drop out of the public eye, her cousin Jules offers her a new, temporary life on the Puget Sound. Her past may be catching up with her, but hope for the future is in Seattle.
Wyatt Crawford can’t figure out the enigmatic beauty who’s living next door. As an architect, he’s usually good at looking beneath the surface—but she barely even leaves her house.
Until she needs his help.
When she knocks on his door, how can he resist? It isn’t long before Wyatt and Amelia become more than just neighbors. But when he finally learns the truth, will the skeletons in her closet be too much for him to handle, or will he stay?

“I turn to him and see so much in his eyes. Affection. Lust. Trust. It’s the trust that makes my heart stutter because by God, I trust him, too.”
“My heart shatters as his eyes fill with tears, and I know I’ve fallen just as hard as he has. I am his. And he is absofuckinglutely mine.”
“Wyatt complements me beautifully. Where I’m a dreamer, he’s a thinker. Where I’m silly, he’s grounded. And the love he shows me in unlike anything I’ve ever known. There are no strings. No expectations. Just love.”
I don’t know about you guys, but ever since author Kristen Proby announced Stay With Me, I have been absolutely giddy waiting to get it in my hands. As some of you know The With Me In Seattle Series is one of my all time favorites. Their is just something about the Montgomery family that just completely captivates me. So, to hear that there would be another book in this series, well my excitement was off the charts and the bar was set high. And I gotta say, Kristen Proby does not disappoint!
Stay With Me is a sweet and swoon-worthy romance and a fabulous addition to The With Me In Seattle Series. This book was like a breath of fresh air, yet it felt like I was coming home all at the same time.
Stay With Me follows the story of Amelia and Wyatt. Amelia wants nothing more to leave the past behind her, so when she’s told to stay out of the public eye for a while, she couldn’t be happier to return back home. Thanks to her cousin Jules, she has a place to stay. Someplace where she can just hide out, unwind and focus on her budding career. Everything seems to be on track until she meets the neighbor next door. He’s good-looking, successful and everything Amelia should be staying away from. But, when Amelia needs help, Wyatt is sure to come running. Soon enough, these neighbors become more. And just when Amelia is finally finding some happiness. The rug is about to be pulled out from under her. When Amelia’s past catches up to her, will Wyatt stick around?? There’s only one way to find out….
Stay With Me was everything that I could have asked for and then some. It was fun. It was sweet. It was oh so swoon-worthy and romantic. I laughed. I swooned. My heart ached. I was filled with so many emotions and just couldn’t get enough. I was hooked on Amelia and Wyatt instantly. I loved their connection and just how effortless things were between the two of them. Sure they both had their baggage and experienced some ups and downs, but for the most part, they made romance just look easy. Wyatt was everything you could want in a Kristen Proby hero. He was smart, loving, bossy and devoted. I loved when his caveman like tendencies would come out! And Amelia…. She was strong, independent and just wanted to be loved. Together, these two made such a great match. I loved watching them explore their feelings and seeing where things were going to go.
Stay With Me was the absolute perfect read to spend my day getting lost in. I felt like I was coming home and totally got lost in the characters and their story. Before I knew it, hours had passed and I was still glued to the pages. I couldn’t put it down. This story swept me off my feet and left me smiling like a fool. I loved everything about this story from beginning to end.
Stay With Me is a fabulous addition to The With Me In Seattle Series. I loved being a part of The Montgomery Clan again and can not wait to read more. Thank you so much, Kristen Proby for providing this fan with more from her favorite series.

I bang on his door and look around. No lights on in the houses on the street. His car is in the driveway, so I know he’s home. I mean, it’s the middle of the night, so where else would he be?
I bang again. If he’s sleeping, which I can’t imagine how he could through that noise, he can just wake up and deal with me. I may sound irrational right now, but damn it, a girl needs to sleep.
Finally, he yanks the door open and glares at me with shining hazel eyes.
“What is that noise?” I demand.
“You. You are the noise.” His chest is heaving. His naked, slightly hairy, very sexy chest. Not to mention, his light brown hair is a mess, and his chin is stubbled, and his tattoos are just…yum.
“There’s a chirping,” I insist, trying to ignore the fact that he’s only wearing short boxer briefs. The kind that clings to a man’s ass and shows off his thighs.
And, you know, other things. Like the generously sized dick outlined in the cotton.
“I don’t hear anything.”
I scowl and pause, listening. Sure enough, it’s gone.
“Come on.” I grab his hand and pull him behind me. I can hear the door shut. “You have to hear this.”
“It’s two in the fucking morning,” he says but doesn’t pull away from the grip I have on his wrist. “Can’t this wait?”
“No, because I can’t sleep.” I pull him into my house and shut the door, then hold my hand up. “Stop. Listen.”
“See!” I push my finger into his firm chest, and then back up a step so I’m not standing so close to his sexiness. Because I seriously want to attack him.
“So change the battery in the smoke detector.” He shrugs and turns to leave, but I run in front of him and block the door.
“I’ve looked for it everywhere, Wyatt. It’s not in this house.”
He frowns. “Well, it’s not at my house.”
“Please, help me.” I bite my lower lip and watch as he pushes his hand through his already messy hair and feel my nether regions immediately sit up and take notice.
“Can you put clothes on?”
“I’m wearing clothes.” I roll my eyes and lead him through the living area, the kitchen, and out to the backyard. “Where is the chirping coming from?”
“You don’t have a robe you could put on?”
I turn to frown at him. “You’re only wearing underwear.”
“Yeah, because it was the only thing I had time to pull on when you were banging my door in.”
Kristen was born and raised in a small resort town in her beloved Montana. In her mid-twenties, she decided to stretch her wings and move to the Pacific Northwest, where she made her home for more than a dozen years.
During that time, Kristen wrote many romance novels and joined organizations such as RWA and other small writing groups. She spent countless hours in workshops, and more mornings than she can count up before the dawn so she could write before going to work. She submitted many manuscripts to agents and editors alike, but was always told no. In the summer of 2012, the self-publishing scene was new and thriving, and Kristen had one goal: to publish just one book. It was something she longed to cross off of her bucket list.
Not only did she publish one book, she’s since published close to thirty titles, many of which have hit the USA Today, New York Times and Wall Street Journal Bestsellers lists. She continues to self publish, best known for her With Me In Seattle and Boudreaux series, and is also proud to work with William Morrow, a division of HarperCollins, with the Fusion Series.
Kristen and her husband, John, make their home in her hometown of Whitefish, Montana with their two pugs and two cats.
