Shine with Me, a sizzling new 1001 Dark Nights novella in the With Me In Seattle series by New York Times bestselling author Kristen Proby is available now!

From New York Times and USA Today bestselling author Kristen Proby comes a new story in her With Me In Seattle series…

Sabrina Harrison hates being famous. She walked away from show business, from the flashing bulbs and prying eyes years ago, and is happy in her rural Oregon home, dedicating her life to her non-profit.

Until Hollywood calls, offering her the role of a lifetime. In more than ten years, she’s never felt the pull to return to the business that shunned her, but this role is everything Sabrina’s ever longed for.

Now she has to get in shape for it.

Benjamin Demarco’s gym, Sound Fitness, continues making a name for itself in Seattle. And now, he finds himself with the task of training Sabrina, getting her in shape for the role of her life. He’s trained hundreds of women. This is his job. So why does he suddenly see Sabrina as more than just another client? His hands linger on her skin, his breath catches when she’s near.

He knows better. Soon, she’ll be gone, living her life. A life that doesn’t include him.

**Every 1001 Dark Nights novella is a standalone story. For new readers, it’s an introduction to an author’s world. And for fans, it’s a bonus book in the author’s series. We hope you’ll enjoy each one as much as we do.**

Sandra's Review

5 out of 5 stars

Shine with Me is an novella in Kristen Proby’s With Me in Seattle series. It is also part of the 1001 Dark Nights series. You can read each book as standalone since each is a different couple. They are tied together of course which is so much fun. I have been following the series for years but have missed a few. Yes, they are waiting on my iPad.

Sabrina left Hollywood years ago, and now lives in Oregon and runs a non-profit for women and children. She never looked back when she left the limelight. It was her life since the age of three. She was done. Then he walks in. Luke Williams. Her old co-star and friend, also a man who left LA now behind the camera instead of in front of it. And now, he was in her building with a script in hand. One he knows she will say yes to since it’s a perfect role for her and he was right. She wanted it.

Ben was the new owner of a beloved local gym. He is crazy busy and with a new client. One who will need his full attention. He doesn’t know much about Sabrina, only that she was a child actor and an old friend of Luke’s. He didn’t know what to expect from Sabrina but when he saw her? He was done. He wanted her. Of course, he couldn’t just kiss her right then but he wanted to. They needed to be professional. They have six weeks to get her into shape for her role. Six weeks until she goes back to her life in Bend while he is in Seattle. Can they keep their hands to themselves?

Of course not!! Come on. I loved this story. It’s a novella but full of story, heart, fun, heat, and workouts. And of course, a family of friends. I love the With Me in Seattle family. So much! I can’t wait for the next book. I hope this series never ends.


“You’re the only sweet thing I want to taste,” I whisper against her earlobe. “Jesus, you’d tempt a saint, Rina.”

“We could have brought more, but we Tetrised this as much as we could.”

“See?” I turn to Ben. “Tetris.”

“Is it Zane Cooper, the movie star?”

“One and the same.”

“Wow,” Nic breathes, earning a look from her husband. “If Matt were to ever give me a hall pass—and trust me, we all know that’s never gonna happen—”

“Walking a fine line here, little one.”

Meet Kristen

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.
