Praise for Victoria's Books . . .
"[Someone Like You] features Bylin's signature relatable characters and Christian relationships. She is immeasurably tender in her treatment of grief and healing, and she does not shy away form the complexities of shame, loss of faith, and coparenting. Readers will immediately fall into the story and its compelling reflections on faith."--Booklist
"Bylin's latest [Someone Like You] showcases a sweet second-chance love story...Her characters are relatable and the story is interspersed with a few hilarious moments--particularly those involving a rambunctious goat--to break up the moments of drama. Bylin does a beautiful job reminding readers that...it is never too late to turn back to God."--RT Book Reviews
"Together with You is a gripping story of forgiveness, love, and family relationships that will captivate readers from the opening chapter...This is a fascinating, complex read that will not only entertain but also challenge and inform."--Booklist
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 of what turned into the “You” book series for Bethany House Publishers. Don’t worry about reading the books in order. They’re connected thematically rather than by continuing characters, so you can dive in with Nick and Kate in Until I Found You, or with Ryan and Carly in Together With You. Someone Like You is a May 2016 release and features Zeke and Julia. I feel like I’m introducing you to friends, which in a way, I am.
In addition to the contemporaries, I’ve written westerns for Love Inspired Historical and Harlequin Historical. Those titles are older and generally available only as e-books.
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.
