Taryn Bashford

Taryn is now a full-time author and juggles her writing with family life, a dog, and characters from her latest book insisting they help make dinner. This can be disconcerting as Jacob is always sticking his fingers in the cheese sauce and Harper can’t cook. Taryn’s been an English Literature Honours student, an advertising sales rep and a CEO of an internet company, but she plans to write inspiring, engaging novels until the day she can no longer type. Taryn is fascinated by teens that surpass the norm. This is what she likes to explore in her writing, remembering that elite teens have flaws too. Now training for triathlons, Taryn is an adrenaline junkie and during her last writer’s retreat, found herself dangling on an abseiling rope 2000m from the ground.

Sixteen-year-old Harper was once a rising star on the tennis court --- until her coach dropped her for being “mentally weak.” But when Harper is taken on by a new coach who wants her to train with Colt, a brooding tennis phenom, she hits the court hard to prove to Colt she can be a champion. As the two learn to become a team, Harper gets glimpses of the boy beneath the surface, the boy who was deeply scarred by his family’s dark and scandalous past. As she walks a fine line between Colt’s secrets, her forbidden love and a game that demands nothing but the best, Harper must choose between her past and her future and between two boys who send her head spinning.
