Nina Kaye Acquisition

Canelo set to publish two new heartwarming romances by Nina Kaye.

Commissioning editor Emily Bedford has acquired World English language rights to two new  standalone romance novels by Nina Kaye from Kate Nash at Kate Nash Literary Agency in a two-book deal. 

Take A Moment is the incredibly touching and captivating story of Alex, whose picture-perfect life is derailed by a shock diagnosis of multiple sclerosis. After losing her job and her fiancé, Alex picks herself up with the help of friendship, forging a new life in a new city and finding the happiness and love she truly deserves. Inspired by Nina’s own personal experiences, Take A Moment is the perfect balm to these anxious times, full of warmth, wit and joy. 

Nina Kaye is a romantic comedy author who writes fast-paced, entertaining reads with a deeper edge. She lives in Edinburgh with her husband and much adored side-kick, James. Nina has previously published The Gin Lover’s Guide to Dating.

Emily Bedford says: ‘There are some novels that stick with you long after you’ve finished reading them and Take A Moment did exactly that for me when I first read the submission. Nina writes with so much humour and heart that it’s impossible not to fall in love with her characters. I am so thrilled to be working with her and I cannot wait to bring Nina’s uplifting and moving stories to everyone.’

Nina Kaye says: ‘I am really excited to be joining Canelo’s author list. Emily has been so welcoming, and I look forward to getting to know the rest of the team. I also cannot wait to share these two stories with a new readership. Take A Moment is especially close to my heart. It is inspired by my health challenges and my fight to regain my life after a sudden and debilitating illness that I still live with.’

Kate Nash says: ‘Take A Moment is just the kind of life affirming story we need right now and I am delighted Nina is being published by the innovative team at Canelo.’

Take A Moment will be published in September 2021, in ebook and print, with a second standalone novel to follow in 2022. For more information please contact
