Regan Samuels is a divorced, single
mother striving to make a new life for herself and her
teenaged son, Luke. Giving in to her friendís request to
help at a charity event, Regan is auctioned off as a date to
the highest bidder. When her bid is won, Regan is mortified
at the low price and doesnít expect the Ďwinnerí to call
her. When he does, she agrees to one date never realizing
that in doing so, her life is about to change in ways she
never would have imagined.
Josh Gregory is a pastor first and a
man second. Longing for the right woman to walk by his side
and love God as much as he does, he refuses to give up his
faith or his search. When he bids for a date with Regan at
a charity auction, he is more than pleasantly surprised at
how much he enjoys being with her, and it seems she feels
the same way.
Josh and Regan begin seeing each
other. There is just one minor problem. Joshís entire life
is focused on his faith and Regan doesnít even know how to
pray. Knowing she isnít the right woman for him, she lets
him go. It isnít until she does some soul searching and is
called upon to help at a youth rally that Reganís life
begins to make sense.
Josh was unlike any preacher I have
ever known and he won my heart the first moment he pulled up
on his motorcycle. His outlook on life continued my love
fest of this strong and gentlemanly character. Reganís
characterization could have been any harried single mother
striving to overcome a bad divorce but keep her child safe.
More than once I wanted to hug her.
As a reviewer, I rarely read books with an inspirational
theme but something about Preacher Man called
to me when I read the blurb and I knew I had to read this
book. I am glad that I went with my intuition because I
loved Preacher Man! Laurie Larson has
combined faith with romance to make a winning combination.
