Food And Drink, Everything's On Me All To Celebrate The Fact That I'm Free

Attorney Fiona Daniels admits it: she married "Mr. Wrong." Newly divorced, she's determined not to make the same mistake twice. To celebrate her newfound freedom, she throws a divorce party where she announces to her best friends and her sister that she's a DFL (divorcee for life).

Fiona may talk the talk, but can she walk the walk? At the very same party she meets chef and restaurateur Nicholas "Nick" Nathaniel, a maple syrup man who's so sweet Fiona can't resist a taste, a bite, and a delicious one-night stand...that soon becomes two nights...and more...

Although Fiona insists her sizzling affair with Nick is a non-relationship, she's about to discover sex always has strings--and the heart is a very fragile thing. In fact, this smart lady lawyer may have to learn a tough lesson about betrayal, forgiveness, and the redeeming power of love before she can grab the right gold ring...

4.0 out of 5 stars Never Say Never March 7 2007
By J.C. Wallington - Published on Amazon.com
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.

5.0 out of 5 stars BEST "chick lit" read of the year! March 22 2007
By M. Bruner - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback
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. Unquestionably, the BEST "chick lit" read of the year. Don't sleep on San Culberson because her pen flows with page turning action that will carry you through the full gamut of emotions.

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!

5.0 out of 5 stars Time Heals All Wounds March 2 2007
By Louise - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback
Fiona loves throwing a good party, especially a divorce party. Being single is a way of life she is planning on enjoying. Even though she is hurt by her ex-husband's tackiness and his cheating ways, Fiona is prepared to become the vixen she knows is inside of her.

While Fiona begins to enjoy her newfound happiness, her sights are set on the most handsome man cleaning her after-party mess. Knowing that this could help her break into her one-night stand debut, Fiona is willing and ready to make Nick her conquest.

Dealing with an ex-wife, two children and a restaurant keeps Nick busy. Not really having the time or patience to deal with uncertain women of today, Nick throws himself into his many responsibilities and obligations.

Seeing the beauty of Fiona on the outside while she continues to party with her friends, Nick also enjoys the beauty he knows is inside this feisty woman and is not ready for just a one night stand.

In The Nick of Time will have you laughing, crying and falling in love with the characters. Fiona's mother is so funny that I had to read her parts over again. I will have to get some sweet and sour pig feet really soon.

5.0 out of 5 stars THIS BOOK IS A DEFINITE MUST-HAVE!!!! Feb. 18 2007
By Tonya A. Phillips - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback
I was browsing at B & N & just the cover to this book caught my eye. I read the back & thought it would be an interesting read. At first, between work & running errands, I wasn't really able to read the book much but I was intrigued by what I had read so far. Anyhow, the following Saturday night, I forgot at exactly what time I started reading (I think I started around 7 or 8) & didn't stop reading until 1 AM!! I was so enthralled by the book that I almost couldn't stop reading. I say almost because, not to give the book away but, at one part of the book when Fiona was betrayed by her sister & then she felt she was betrayed by Nick, I literally started shaking, my heart started beating so fast & I started crying so hard that I had to stop reading 'cause I couldn't read anything, my vision was so blurry!! After about a good five minutes I composed myself & was able to continue. Afterward, I immediately wrote a review at [...] & I'll put the same response. I don't care if anyone thinks I'm pathetic & I don't have a life 'cause I get so involved when I'm reading a book but I DON'T CARE 'CAUSE I ABSOLUTELY LOVED THE BOOK!!!! Anyone who loves urban romance or romance of any kind for that matter should get this book. I took a chance on this book & was pleasantly rewarded. This book gives hope to skeptics like myself in hopes of finding true love & accepting that everyone is different & that with time, a broken heart can be mended. AGAIN, THIS BOOK IS A DEFINITE MUST-HAVE, NOT A DISAPPOINTMENT!!
