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.

I really enjoyed reading Nick and Fiona's story. It took a little while for the story to take off but once it did, it was very good. I really liked both of these characters. Even though Fiona came off as a hateful b*tch sometimes, she was still a good person. She had every reason to have a stone wall around her heart after what she went through with her ex-husband. Nick, being the calm and laid back guy that he is, was the perfect person to break her down. Sometimes we are so hung up on the past that we don't realize what's right in front of us. I enjoyed the journey these two took to get where they ended. Will definitely be reading more books by Ms. Culberson.

Fiona Daniels is newly divorced and out of a bad marriage, despite everything that has happened to her, she decides to celebrate her freedom and new outlook on life by throwing a "divorce" party.

At the party, Fiona declares to family and friends that marriage is NOT for her and she will NEVER marry again but when she meets Nick Nathaniel, will he be the one to change her mind? At first Fiona tries to keep her relationship with Nick about sex and no strings attached. But soon, a no-strings, one-night stand slowly turns into an relationship that slowly turns into love. Just as Fiona is about to give in to her feelings, a shocking secret with an unexpected betrayal comes to light that will change everything with Nick.

The Nick of Time by San Culberson is a sweet, romantic story that will make you laugh and appeal to readers who love their romance stories with a touch of drama. 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!
