The Loner

The Loner is a reunion story, a modern retelling of Jane Austen’s most romantic novel—Persuasion. 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 L.A. dating scene, but a chance encounter at a school reunion revives a powerful past love. He’s never forgotten Annie James, but this time around, he swears he’ll do the walking out.

Widowed young, Annie James believes she’s recovered from the early heartbreaks that left her single and jobless in L.A. at 24. Ten years later, she’s got a job, a house, and a personal passion helping at-risk kids. When she steps up to do a favor for a friend, she unlocks the door to the past and faces the one man who could break her heart again. Like Austen’s Anne Elliot, Annie James is a woman with “retentive feelings.”


“Simply put, The Loner is wonderful. In the spirit of Jane Austen’s Persuasion, Kate Moore offers a beautiful love story with vivid characters that steal your heart. Written with intelligence, warmth, and a delightfully sneaky wit, you will root for Will Sloan and Annie James and their second chance at love.” --Laura Moore, bestselling author of Once Tempted

“The parallels to Persuasion had me excited to see what would happen between Will and Annie, and I rooted for them much as I rooted for Captain Wentworth and Anne.” –Austenprose

“An all-around great read. It was the first book I've read from Kate Moore but won't be the last.” –Midwest Book Lover

“You may like this book if you enjoy HEA’s; you should read this because you want to see multi-dimensional characters; but you MUST read this if you enjoy complicated and beautiful romance stories.”

“The characters are very lovable. It is a must read and if you love reading about people who try to claim their love then this is the book for you.” –Summer’s Book Blog

“Engaging, sympathetic protagonists, a well-rendered supporting cast, and a satisfyingly sigh-worthy love story at the center of a well-paced plot get this planned trilogy off to a superb start.” --Xpress, Library Journal

“Kate Moore has won me over and I really look forward to reading more books in this series and anything she writes.” –Confessions of a YA and NA Addict
