Aloha to Kennedy Ryan and WHEN YOU ARE MINE


Kennedy Ryan joins us today to celebrate the release of WHEN YOU ARE MINE:

Forever is a heartbeat away . . .

Kerris Moreton knows how to make things work. Bounced from foster home to foster home as a kid, she adapted; when opportunity arose, she thrived. Now, about to open her own business and accept a marriage proposal, Kerris is ready to build the life she's always wanted. The only thing missing? A passionate connection with her would-be fiancé, Cam. Kerris wants to believe that sparks are overrated-until Walsh Bennett lights her up like the Fourth of July.

. . . but what about love?

As one of the East Coast's most eligible bachelors, Walsh enjoys financial independence, fulfilling work with his family's nonprofit, and plenty of female attention. But lately he's been distracted by the one woman he can't have. Lovely to look at and even sweeter to know, Kerris is the soul mate Walsh never thought he would find. The problem is, his best friend found her first . . .


Top Five Things that Kerris appreciates in Walsh ...

1. His involvement in his family’s philanthropic foundation. (He has a soft spot for orphans!)

2. His love for his family (especially mother & his cousin) and his best friend (awkward since Kerris is engaged to his best friend…LOL)

3. He is easy to talk to. She finds herself confiding painful details from her past she’s never been able to share with others.

4. He has a brilliant business mind, and is training to take over his father’s acquisitions empire.

5. He’s handsome & sexy, of course! LOL

…And the top things Walsh appreciates in Kerris.

1.She is survivor! She hasn’t allowed painful experiences during foster care to make her bitter, but leverages her hurt to move forward.

2. She gives back, volunteering in his family’s foundation, which provided the scholarship for her to attend college.

3. She is loyal…to a fault!

4. She is ambitious. Starts her own high-end consignment shop right out of college, and is already planning her next business, selling her hand-crafted jewelry.

5. She is gorgeous and sexy, but doesn’t really realize it.


Kennedy Ryan grew up in North Carolina, but loves living in Atlanta with her husband (tall – check, dark – check – handsome – check), and her handful of a son. Though she knew, like writers often do, that she was supposed to tell stories, the road to fulfillment has been paved with “some of everything” jobs that kept her family eating and living indoors. With her degree in Journalism from the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill (Go Tar Heels!), she has focused on writing for non-profit organizations and even doing some non-fiction ghost writing. Only in the last few years did she start telling stories again.

In addition to being a devoted wife and mom, she’s also a passionate advocate for families living with Autism. Her son was diagnosed at the age of two, and she has made it her mission to help as many families as possible find the resources and services they need. 25% of her royalties will go toward her national charitable partner Talk About Curing Autism and Myles-A-Part, her foundation serving Georgia families.
