Synopsis

Sarah Jamison is on a mission to find a boyfriend for Moira, who is her lover’s partner. And Sarah’s best friend, Monica, comes to the rescue with the perfect solution. Enter the enigmatic Mike Connor.

Monica is sure that Mike will sweep Moira off her feet, leaving the way open for Sarah to be with her true love, Jeffrey.

Sarah hates Mike on sight despite the fact that her body tells her otherwise. He is a romance novel “hero-type” who is smug and full of himself. But the only way to accomplish her mission is for her to work with Mike so she can be together with the man she loves.

Jeffrey has promised her that the minute he can end his platonic relationship with Moira, he will be with Sarah for good; but he is having trouble letting go of the wretched woman, and Sarah feels her time is running out. She is terrified of the pending big “M” (menopause), and seeing as she’s just turned forty, and her hormones are driving her to do insane and desperate things, she is sure that it is not too far off into the future!

So here she is, building a multi-level marketing business in Taiwan, and struggling with it all: a stranger in a foreign country, away from her mother and friends back in London; a reluctant lover; a drop-dead gorgeous man who might have ulterior motives for helping her, and finally, a business that seems to be dwindling.

Sarah is doing it all in the name of love and the last chance to have a family, and if this means scheming and working with the devil himself, then she will do it! What she doesn’t take into account is the fact that instead of getting closer to her goal, Sarah’s feelings take a turn, and she finds herself increasingly thinking about the very man she despises the most – “the other boyfriend”.
 

About Sylvia Massara

See more books from this Author
Sylvia Massara is a multi-genre author based in Sydney, Australia, who dabbles in wacky love affairs, drama and murder (or all three) over coffee. Sylvia has been writing since her early teens and her work consists of novels and screenplays. As with most authors, Sylvia draws on her varied experience in the sometimes-puzzling tapestry of life. These days, however, Sylvia has resigned from the human race, and she lives both in the animal kingdom, with her kitty cat, Mia, (a much better place to be), and vicariously, through the many characters in her head. Sylvia has a soft spot for older female protagonists with an attitude who are on the cusp of 40 years and beyond. This is seen in her wacky, romantic comedies, and most recently, in her mystery novels. An avid fan of classic black and white Hollywood movies of the 40s including film noir, Sylvia has placed her protagonist, Mia Ferrari, in a contemporary mystery series with a bit of a "film noir" flavour. Mia Ferrari is an older, spunky, smartarse female who works in the international world of hotels. The theme is comedic, sexy, and peppered with that film-noir-hero type of attitude. The stories are fast-paced and set in the modern day world. On a more serious note, Sylvia's work in literary fiction brings forth The Soul Bearers, an inspirational story filled with hope, overcoming fear, loss, betrayal, and discovering the healing power of unconditional love. At present, the novel is under consideration for adaptation into a feature film. For more information please visit Massara's website at: www.sylviamassara.com
