Praise for Until I Found You . . .
Bylin . . . pens a strong character-driven story. Deftly handling the faith element, she brings an authenticity to Kate’s search and Nick’s steadfastness that will resonate with readers, regardless of their religious persuasions. -- Publishers Weekly
"This read is a very heart-warming and fulfilling tale of commitment to our faith and those we love....Victoria Bylin has created a really great story of strength and has a truly gifted way of relaying the essence to the reader." -Fresh Fiction
Welcome to my writing world! I’m Victoria Bylin (aka Vicki), and I write contemporary inspirational romance for woman of all ages. My heroines are usually in their 20s, maybe a little older, but they have moms, dads and grandparents with full lives of their own. I love exploring the generations and how they interact, particularly how time changes some things in this world but not others.
Love is a constant. So is faith.
That’s especially true in my newest titles for Bethany House, Until I Found You (May 2014) and Together with You (April 2015) . Yes, there’s a trend here . . . Book #3 will have “You” in the title. In addition to the contemporaries, I’ve written a bunch of westerns for Love Inspired Historical and Harlequin Historical.
Past or present, my favorite kind of story explores love, faith and romance through the lens of the spiritual 3 R’s--Redemption, Restoration, and Rebirth. My characters are usually in big trouble when a book opens, which may be why my stories are often called realistic and relatable. Who hasn’t made a mistake or two? As a writer, I love taking characters (and hopefully readers) out of those dark valleys and into the light.
A quick word about my westerns . . . I’m focusing on contemporaries right now, but my Love Inspired Historicals are all available as ebooks. These are westerns set in the 1800s and are about ranchers, preachers, lawmen, outlaws, and the women who love them. They’re rich in history, hope and faith.
If you read mainstream romance, you might have discovered my older Harlequin Historicals. These six books are western romances written for the secular market. They have Christian themes, but they also have elements that some readers won’t care for. I think of them as “’tween” books--in between the Christian market and the secular market.
