The men of the Divine Creek Ranch have found the woman they’ve dreamed of. Jack loves voluptuous Grace’s giving heart and blushing cheeks. Ethan loves her wild innocence and loyalty. Adam fell in love with her the moment he laid eyes on her.

With the help of these three handsome men, Grace frees herself from an abusive boyfriend. She loves them all and knows she could never choose between them—Jack for his teasing nature, Ethan for his intuition, and Adam for his gentle ways. When danger and calamity threaten, her men proved they will protect and defend her. Grace learns what it means to be desired, pursued, and protected by three gorgeous men, finding that they will do anything to please her along the way.

Can they prove to Grace they want forever and not just a fling? Can Grace heed the advice of her sister and seize the day?

To Carpe Diem or Carpe Nocturne? ... why not both? Grace knows the time has come to seize the day when she is swept off her feet by sexy Jack Warner and his roommates, Ethan and Adam. It will be their pleasure to show her the many ways to seize the night…times three!

In a very short time Grace Stuart’s life has taken a 180 degree turn for the better. Once the only bright spot in her day involved seeing her favorite customer, Jack, stop in at Stigall’s for some personal shopping service. When Grace attends the funeral for a friend, who happened to be Jack’s mother, she is overwhelmed by the heart stopping attraction she has for not only Jack but his friends, Ethan and Adam as well. Even more surprising to this beautiful plus size heroine is the fact that they all seem to return her feelings with interest.

To be perfectly honest I was actually a little concerned by how quickly Ms. Rainier had the main characters professing their undying love for one another, especially considering the length of this super novel. Yes, there are some obvious antagonists that offer plenty of opportunity for conflict but I just couldn’t imagine it lasting over 500 pages and keeping my attention. Ms. Rainier pleasantly surprised me by not just using the antagonist to round out the plot but Grace’s personal growth from a frightened self-conscious ostrich (as in she hides from confrontation) to a feisty spit fire that stands up for herself and the men she loves. My point is, the early love declaration works for this story. Ms. Rainer handles it well and you still get to enjoy the relationship growth between Grace and the men.

Speaking of the men, these guys are unbelievably head over heels in love with Grace. Almost too unbelievably. It’s not how they act toward her, that’s actually pretty heart warming and beautiful. Grace’s love life has not been easy and she deserves the added attention they literally shower on her. It’s the dialogue that was a little unreal. I don’t know any man that is quite as open and expressive about his feelings or intentions toward a woman as Jack, Ethan and Adam happen to be. Having said that, as Grace comes out of her shell she manages to keep the guys on their toes with her witty personality and vivacious attitude. Something else I appreciated was that I got a chance to really get to know the guys on a more individual basis as Grace spends one-on-one time with them. Jack is the silly charmer, Ethan is the attentative thinker, Adam is her dragon slayer. Together they are everything that Grace needs to begin a new life.

Divine Grace is the first in Ms. Rainier’s Divine Creek Ranch series and she has already written books two and three as of this review. As an up and coming author for Siren Publishing, Ms. Rainier is already making a name for herself and this reviewer is anxious to see how she has progressed as a writer from this first book to the newest release Heavenly Angel.

If you love a powerful ménage story that literally sweeps you along into the lives of the characters, you will love Divine Grace. There is so much more to this story than I was expecting when I began this saga and I’m glad I stuck with the storyline to watch the growth and development of the characters. If a soul searing love story is what you’re in the mood for, pick up a copy of Divine Grace. It’s time well spent.
