Format: Paperback
Attorney Fiona Daniels has signed the divorce papers and is ready to celebrate her newfound freedom. She has a new attitude and has vowed to never marry again. Dating and no-strings attached sexual relationships are her motto. In San Culberson's debut novel, The Nick of Time, Fiona the gay divorcee finds life has a strange way of being the opposite of what you expect. At her divorce party, Fiona sees a handsome man cleaning up the mess. Instead of going home in the cab her best friend put her in, Fiona had the cabdriver return her to the restaurant so she could scope out the potential candidate for a no-strings attached sexual romp. Nick Nathaniel is more than happy to satisfy Fiona, however a one-night stand is not what he has in mind. He knows Fiona thinks little of the janitor she picked up, but what she does not know is there is much more to him than meets the eye. He could be the one that makes her forget her vow. .

As Culberson develops the romance between Fiona and Nick, there are other sub-plots that make for exciting reading. Fiona and her sister Ramona have never been closed but now that they are both divorced, they decide to work on their relationship and become close, until her sister betrays her. Fiona and her mother have a love/hate relationship. Fiona did not understand her mother, until moms explained to her motherly obligations, though you love your children, you might have to treat them based on their personality and temperament. I would put this novel in the category of Chick Lit. The Nick of Time involves a single, successful female, with a best friend and a rocky budding romance and a complicated life turning things around. There is just enough romance, humor and conflict to make a good read. . Fans of the "Chick Lit" genre and those looking for a funny romance will enjoy this offering.

Got men problems? Join the club of women who have had their hearts broken. Regardless of how strong we think we are, no one is ever ready to find out that their man is cheating on them. After suffering through a year long separation, Fiona Daniels finally got her signed divorce papers.

With feelings of joy, she recruited her best friend, Nicole, to help her plan a "DFL - divorcee for life" party. Fiona spared no expense and invited 27 of our closet friends to celebrate with champagne, catered buffet, and private room. She shed her dressed to impress attorney façade for the evening and partied like there was no tomorrow. During the clean up phase of this soirée, she noticed the handsome cater. Drunken Fiona threw caution to the wind and invited him home for a one-night stand. Fiona acknowledged that the sex was hot and Nicholas "Nick" Nathaniel was FINE (frog hair split three ways fine) but in no way was she becoming involved in a serious relationship.

Nick is a divorcee, master chef and restaurant owner with two kids. He is a free spirit with a passion for expensive gifts and good food. Fiona captivated him while her mean spirit and her funky attitude made him even hungrier in the chase to win her heart. The friendship between the two gets complicated when Fiona realizes who her sisters new man is - waking up the ghetto side of this otherwise refined sister. She temporally loses touch with reality which may cause her to lose everything - her position at the firm, the love of her mother, and her new man friend - Nick.

THE NICK OF TIME is a story that rings true for so many sisters today. Culberson draws the reader in with humorous dialogue, theatrical twists, and the understanding that sex always has strings.

It captures the reader's attention from beginning to end as I read this book in one sitting, once I started, I had to finish it! San Culberson is an author to watch!

Format: Paperback
Newly divorced attorney Fiona Daniels married "Mr. Wrong," but now she's ready to move on with her life. She begins the healing process by throwing a divorce party to celebrate her new life as a divorced woman for life. Fiona swears to her best friends at the party that she will never love again and will settle for just meaningless sexual relationships. Fiona is going to have a difficult time keeping that promise when she meets Nicholas "Nick" Nathaniel. Nick is so deliciously irresistible that Fiona can't stop herself from getting just a little taste of him. When their one night stand extends to a couple of nights, Nick's feelings for Fiona get deeper than just sex. But Fiona keeps telling herself that it's just a no-strings relationship, and she has no time for love or the heartbreak that may come with it. Will Fiona open her heart to love or will she just let Nick walk away?

The Nick of Time is a superbly entertaining novel by San Culberson. Culberson brought an interesting twist to the story of a newly divorced woman. From the very first page, readers will know that this is not your typical "man meets woman" type novel. You'll see the transformation of Fiona as a woman who won't let the possibility of love enter her mind become a woman who may be willing to give love a try. There's a good blend of drama, sensuality, and amusing dialogue that makes this a delightful read. The Nick of Time is witty and uproariously humorous. Hopefully, we will have the pleasure of reading more from San Culberson in the future.
