Victoria Bylin

This is the first book I've read by Victoria Bylin and I'm sure it won't be the last! I loved this book! The premise wasn't overly attention grabbing but I'd heard good things and decided to give it a shot! And I am so very glad I did!
Nick was my favorite character! He made such a fantastic hero! He had a bit of a troubled past but God changed him completely and made him into a man worth admiring! I really appreciated his appropriate perspective on his sinfulness and the fact that it was God alone who saved him. I also loved the way he handled Kate's journey to God, never forcing it, and letting her find her own path. And speaking of Kate, I did like her character as well! I could see a bit of myself in her fears since I have similar ones and it was cool to watch her as she learned to trust God with them.
Nick and Kate's relationship was sweet though it did have it's ups and downs as every relationship will!
In short I thoroughly enjoyed this novel and I will definitely recommend it!

A word from the Author:
This may sound crazy, but I was driven to write romance by giant bugs and killer rabbits. I just couldn't take it anymore. My husband and two sons would be camped in front of the television watching a movie about spiders the size of bowling balls, and I'd be wondering when the handsome scientist would get around to kissing the spunky woman with the bug spray. When it didn't happen, I decided to write my own happy endings--without the giant bugs...

Known for her realistic, likable characters and vivid writing, Victoria Bylin writes both western and contemporary inspirational romance. Her books have finaled in the ACFW Carol Awards, the Rita Awards and RT Magazine’s Reviewers’ Choice Awards. She and her husband currently live in Lexington, Kentucky and have two grown sons.


Finding each other was only the beginning . . .

When Kate Darby swerves off a mountain road to avoid hitting a California condor, she ends up trapped in her car, teetering on the edge of a cliff. Terrified, she breathes a prayer that changes her life.

It's Nick Sheridan who comes to Kate's rescue. Nick is handsome and confident, and he seems to develop a habit of rescuing her, but Kate is in town only until her grandmother recuperates from a stroke. She's not planning to get involved with one of the locals.

Nick is a reformed veteran of life in the fast lane, a new Christian, and a travel writer. When he sees a car dangling on the edge of a cliff, the daredevil in him jumps into action. He doesn't expect to be swept off his feet by the car's occupant. He's made a vow--no dating for a year--but keeping that vow is going to be a lot more difficult now that he's met Kate Darby. . . .
