Good lovin’ is easy…But true happiness is harder to find… To anyone on the outside looking in through the door of Cyndarella Worthy’s life, it looks like she’s got it all. At thirty-two, she’s beautiful and successful, with a handsome brother lover, Thad Mitchell. But deep in her heart, she holds a candle for Bashar Bazzi, the Chaldean immigrant she loved ten years ago. Bashar left for Iraq and she never saw him again, and she assumes he made a marriage within his own community without a backward glance.
Cyn’s girlfriends, Tavie, Denise and Vette, know that their sister still carries the scars of Bashar, but they pray she’ll find love and peace with Thad. Anyway, they’ve got issues too: Tavie’s dating smart school principal, Mack Dooley, but she can’t escape the rumors that he’s playing around; Denise’s marriage to Sean is under pressure because she hasn’t conceived a second child; Vette’s dating an older guy, Louis Burns, but wonders if she’ll ever get a ring on her finger. When Thad proposes to Cyn and she accepts, it looks like this sister’s finally on her way to true happiness. But no sooner are the celebrations done, when there’s trouble—Bashar Bazzi is home, and he’s ready to settle his unfinished business with Cyn… Book #1 in the The Amorous Trilogy

There are men who  speak about their penis as if it  is  an extended member of their family. They  damn near burst out of  their pants  to make the introduction. The   thing they fail  to  realize is that, for  most women, inches can’t compensate for character or a man’s worth.

Cyndarella  Worthy’s mama  always  told   her how   to behave like   a lady throughout much of  her life.  Except when it  came to  the subject of  men. Perhaps had they had such conversations, it  would have spared  Cyn   the consequential  heartache   she   racked   up   in     dating deadbeats.

Hell,   Cyn   pouted,  most  women don’t realize they’re dating  a  fucking’ loser until  each  layer is   peeled back piece  by   piece  like   an  onion. So   much so,   it  ends up making everything around you  tear.

First of  all,   you   got  to  check off  the  outer  layer. Of course he's  dangerously fine, like   Terrance  Howard. All the way  down to  that little smirk of  a smile on  his face that  initially drives you   wild.   This  is   a  man that  any

mother  would pray  her  daughter  would bring home. A well     groomed  professional   man   wit the   material trimmings that would make most women's hearts swoon, and let’s  not neglect to mention that big fat  bank account.

Accompanying this package are the big  boy-toys, you know, the  E-Class Mercedes Benz,  and  perhaps  a Hummer or  some other luxury SUV  parked next to  the Benz in  his three-car garage. And,   imagine, there is  an empty spot waiting he’s  been saving just for  you!  He’s  a go-getter on  the fast track career-wise. Heck, there aint anything sexier than a man on  a mission!

Three  months   have   passed   and   by    now    you’ve discovered the middle layer. Your   potential Mr.  Right is charming, blends into most social settings and loves   to shower you  with affection. And  yes, you've hit the sheets with him to  find  he  is  equipped with a substantial-sized tool  to drill  you  deep in the wee  hours of the night.Women  lie   when  they  say  size  don’t  matter,   Cyn reasoned.

In  her  clinical experience,  Cyn   found fucking men with little dicks required much more work in  order for her to  achieve an  orgasm. God   forbid if  they  suffered from premature  ejaculation! For   her it  wasn’t an option she desired to explore.

Getting to  the inner layer some six  months later, you find   that things aren't quite working out. Mr.  Right has fast become Mr.   Wrong. He  starts  calling you   less and making excuses why  he's unavailable. And  when you  are together, his cell  phone rings all  through the night, and he  can't seem to  keep his lies  straight as to  who’s  on  the other end of the phone. It is  then you  realize the object of your affection has started to  show his ass and, of course, it's all  because he  thinks things are moving way  too  fast.

He needs time to sort things out. Bottom line  is,  Mr.  Lover Man isn't ready to  commit and has moved on  to  his next conquest.

Examining herself, at thirty-two, Cyn  was striking in appearance.   Yet,  she was further from the altar than she’d ever  been.  Not  only  that, Cyn  had what she called the five  Bs:  bank, beauty, boobs, booty and brains. And the  fact    she  hadnt  become a  member  of   the  single mothers’ club made her stick her chest out even more. But wouldn’t you  know, some people viewed her as selfish because of this?  That was their problem, not hers.

Thad Mitchell, Cyns latest  flame, was a bit  different from the usual targets she dated. He  was divorced with a four-year-old  daughter.     Normally, Cyn  didn’t  do   men with baby mommas because she hated the drama that went  along  with  it.  Too   many  of   her  girlfriends had suffered just because they made the mistake of falling in love  with a man who  had dependents. Despite their good intentions,  some  men  never  truly,  completely made  a clean break. 

It just so  happened Cyn   lucked out, because Thad’s ex   got   remarried  overseas  to   a fellow   naval  officer, so Thad rarely got  weekend visits.   It was more of  a long- distance phone relationship. Heather, his ex,  was great about  sending  family videos and  photos.  Thad  visited twice a year, which Cyn  encouraged because she sure as hell  didn’t want anything getting in  the middle of quality time with her  man,  namely him  drowning his  sorrows because he  missed his little girl.

At  eight months  old, the relationship was still   quite fresh and Thad agreed to  something most men couldn’t seem to  follow  through on:  courtship.  That was the one
stipulation Cyn  had before she’d accept a single date with a man. And  if he  wasn’t consistent, forget about it!   Three months into their courtship, Thad hadn’t failed her.  With a demanding high profile career, Cyn  rarely had time for anything more than  an  occasional fling   every  now   and then. Not  that she minded variety at all,  but she had to admit, her favorite slogan, ‘A few  good  men, was starting to get  stale.

Thad was eye  candy at its finest. At 6’ 5”,  weighing in around  280  pounds,  his  body was definitely lean  and mean.   He    had   fair     skin   and    strong   jaw    line, accompanied by  keen facial features  that  appeared like they had been chiseled into place. The  thought  alone of staring up into Thad’s piercing hazel eyes made her ache to  be  with him. And  being with him felt  right. She was satisfied with the way  they were progressing. She kept her
fingers crossed that they would stay that way.

About Vina St. Fran

Vina St. Fran
Hi. I'm Vina St. Fran, a Michigan native and I write contemporary romance stories for a mature audience. I am also Political Contributor for Examiner.com, which is an online news publication. Let me expound upon what drives me to write as an author. I like creating stories about powerful, kick-ass women who make it happen in the boardroom and the bedroom without apologies. You will find my novels may contain characters of different ethnic backgrounds who add spice to the plot, and makes for interesting reading. My female heroines are confident and charismatic, yet they are vulnerable when it comes to matters of the heart. The realism is heartfelt, for to love is to risk. They find certain situations push them to the brink of despair, yet in the middle of it all they manage to enjoy amazing, fulfilling sex lives with their significant others, which is thrilling and downright erotic. The end result is that the characters mature, and develop into stronger women.
