Read Detailed Book Description

In her debut novel, Cherlyn Michaels boldly turns the tables in challenging the institution of modern day marriage. Instead of the male character, it is the female main character that has a fear of commitment in marriage and wants to avoid it at all costs. Vanella Morris believes in and follows her self subscribed O-theory: The surest way to ruin a relationship is to marry the man you love. So when her man proposes, she is heartbroken that she cannot convince a pro-marriage Alton to skip the wedding and just live together. As she struggles to salvage her relationship, an unveiled family secret destroys the foundation of her fear, and she again comes face to face with the question of marriage. However, this time it’s from an unexpected source. Even so, the question remains of whether or not she can get beyond her O-theory to marry the man that she loves.
