This is Book two in the Acts Of Honor series, the spin-off series to Men Of Honor. It’s Nick and Katelyn’s story and is told in dual POV, has an HEA with no cliffhanger and it can be read as a standalone. However, I highly recommend that you read the Men Of Honor series prior, as characters play recurring roles in both series.
An Act of Salvation
An Act of Salvation was another perfect book from KC Lynn. I love her Men of Honor series and these spin offs have been just as good. I wasn’t sure how I would feel about Katelyn and Nick but I should have trusted KC! Katelyn and Nick both have super sad pasts; Nick’s past keeps him from loving anyone. While Katelyn’s past is super sad, she is still so determine to find her happily ever after and it makes me want to punch Nick in the face! An Act of Salvation is told in Dual pov, which y’all know I love, and it has flashbacks to various times when Nick and Katelyn were growing up. This allows you to get to know more about Katelyn and Nick’s past while still keeping the story moving forward. Its really well done. Sometimes flashbacks can really slow a story for me, but these are perfectly placed and of the perfect length to not interfere with the forward progress of the plot. By the end, you have such a deep understanding for Katelyn, Nick, and even some for Kolan and why they have made some of the decisions they have made in the past. These characters are complex and I love that in a book!
Side note: I normally LOVE her covers. However, the cover to An Act of Salvation does not work for me. I can’t put my finger on exactly what it is, but I think its something about the woman’s eyes. Its almost like she is a mannequin or something. Am I the only one who is not feeling this cover? Can someone explain to me why I am not feeling this cover? (Don’t get me wrong-the model is stunning! I just think this picture doesn’t do her justice!)

Until November by Aurora Rose Reynolds, Axel by Harper Sloan, Protecting Caroline by Susan Stoker…then you will probably like An Act of Salvation!
K.C. Lynn is a small town girl living in Western Canada. She grew up in a family of four children—two sisters and a brother. Her mother was the lady who baked homemade goods for everyone on the street and her father was a respected man who worked in the RCMP. He’s since retired and now works for the criminal justice system. This being one of the things that inspires K.C. to write romantic suspense about the trials and triumphs of our heroes.
K.C. married her high school sweetheart and they started a big family of their own—two adorable girls and a set of handsome twin boys. They still reside in the same small town but K.C.’s heart has always longed for the south, where everyone says ‘y’all’ and eats biscuits and gravy for breakfast.
It was her love for romance books that gave K.C. the courage to sit down and write her own novel. It was then a beautiful world opened up and she found what she was meant to do…write.
When K.C.’s not spending time with her beautiful family she can be found in her writing cave, living in the fabulous minds of her characters and their stories.
From An Act of Salvation:
“There’s no question that you’re beautiful, Katelyn, but never forget you are more. So much fucking more.”
He looks down at me in a way I’m used to being looked at by men, but it’s always been different with him. When he does it I feel beautiful, not cheap.
“What’s your favorite thing about me?” I ask softly, then rush to elaborate. “About my appearance, I mean. If you could only choose one physical attribute, what would it be?”
He doesn’t hesitate with his answer. “Your smile.”
His response brings one to my face. “Why?” I ask, unable to help myself.
“Because it means you’re happy and you deserve that. You deserve to smile every second of every day.”
That’s why he’s different, why he’s always been different. It’s why I will fight for him—for us. I won’t lose him a second time.
