The Resurrection of Dylan McAthie

Reading eBooks, especially on my phone, has become difficult, I think it is time to admit I may need to see an eye doctor, but I couldn’t resist getting a copy of this free eBook, the first in Nancee’s Pine Bluff series. 
After meeting Nancee Cain through one of the many fabulous writers’ group on Facebook, and being invited to host her Cain Raisers Page, I interviewed Nancee for my Creekside Café and became interested in her work. Though I may never get the chance to meet Nancee in person, I feel a kinship with her, and since reading The Resurrection of Dylan McAthie, I feel an even stronger connection.
A good author makes you forget you are reading a book. When the story is really good, and the author truly talented, reading becomes an experience and find yourself amidst the story. That’s how I felt while reading The Resurrection of Dylan McAthie. I fell in love with the characters wanting to either drag Dylan off to bed, beat the crap out of him or feed him cookies and milk. While Jennifer could sometimes be annoying, so was I at nineteen.
The Resurrection of Dylan McAthie is my first taste of Nancee’s work, and it was delicious. I am looking forward to devouring more of The Pine Bluff books.
This opposite attracts, forbidden love romance is one of the best I’ve read. The contrast between bad boy Dylan and the sweet, innocent preacher’s daughter, Jennifer add another layer to the dynamics of this story.
The naive nurse who harbors a secret crush for her patient is hardly a match for the worldly ways of a rock-n-roll heart throb. While Jennifer might be innocent, she’s not spineless and she gives her patient what for. Watching this romance unfold, the setbacks and missteps is like being on an emotional roller coaster. I laughed, cried and fell in love.
Fair warning: you may lose sleep over this book.
I think this book needs to be made into a movie. Now who would we cast for Dylan?


I write suspense with a hot romance and a southern accent. I like strong characters with attitude and charm. Heroines who can rescue themselves and heroes who aren't afraid to love them.
