Romance Author Releases Suburban Detroit Novel

Zam Publishing, LLC. is excited to announce the launch of the debut novel by Contemporary Romance author, Vina St. Fran, "One Foot Outside The Door" on April 15, 2015.

"Cyndarella Worthy, an African-American lady, is caught in the twists and turns of love centered on one of the most enduring and captivating contemporary romance stories...One Foot Outside The Door. Against this background, "Cyn" as she is fondly called grapples with a blast from the past and a tragic secret that threatens her marriage to her heartthrob Thad Mitchell..."

In the first novel of a highly anticipated series, The Amorous Trilogy, Vina St. Fran explores with finesse, the story of a single African-American lady whose life is shattered by Bashar Bazzi, a Chaldean gentleman of Iraqi descent who after four years of romance leaves her to attend to his family business in Baghdad. 14 years after, she settles to marry Thad Mitchell, also an African-American but her joy is cut short as Bashar comes onto the scene. She's torn between an old flame and a life of bliss with Thad. But can she resist the chemistry between herself and Bashar whose family prejudice tore them apart in the first place?

"I am not a fan of most debut novels in which I have reviewed. I must warn you in advance that this is not the typical cookie-cutter Contemporary Romance novel you may currently find yourself reading...there is a true love story which unfolds here that entertains as well as educates. The storytelling is solid, focused, and downright unpredictable! The supporting cast of characters each with their own distinctive flavoring makes this a must-read book that I would highly recommend," said Lacey Smalton, Reviewer from the Midwest Book Review, Reviewers Choice, March 2015 edition.

Faridah Nassozi of Reader's Favorite Book Review March 23, 2015 adds, "One Foot Outside The Door by Vina St. Fran delivered a story filled with romance, suspense and relationship drama through love triangles, betrayals, broken trust, and second chances."
