"I'm lonely, Kyle" #SneakPeek #Contemporaryromance #ComingSoon

Welcome to Sneak Peek
 
 

In the past six weeks, I have been neck deep writing a new contemporary romance story.

It was named, Forbidden Dance, by a reader called, Renee Jeffries during a fun event on Facebook in early May.
 
I have been involved in rounds of editing with one of my amazing author friend.

And I want to take this opportunity to invite you to the Facebook Release Celebration hosted by two unbelievably lovely friends of mine; Felicia Welch-Reevers & Renee Jeffries. You will find the details below.
Title: Forbidden Dance
 
A steamy hot novella

Will Alero forgo her marriage for a lifetime of happiness?
Author: Stella Eromonsere-Ajanaku
Genre: Romance/Contemporary/Interracial
ISBN: 978- 1508955191 (Paperback) 1508955190
Release Date: Wednesday 15th July 2015
Cover Artist: Obsessed by Books Designs

Forbidden Dance is different from every other book I have written. And there are nine titles so far in the Flirty & Feisty Romance Basket

To start with, the heroine (Alero, a former glamour model) and hero (Kyle, a sexy millionaire film director) in Forbidden Dance are already married. But their marriage faces turbulence and they struggle to cope with the strain.
Alero & Kyle Thomson
As I wrote the story, my heart cringed in some parts because of their actions and decisions. I'm just a writer. I write whatever the characters tell me to, even if I might not always agree with their decisions. I'm not in their shoes  and so they get it right sometimes, and at other times, they mess up. But in the end, we know they always find a way to resolve their problems.
 
I'm going to give you a sneak peek into Alero and Kyle Thomson's troubled marriage.

In this scene, Kyle just returned to their London mansion from Los Angeles where he runs his multi-million pound Film Production empire.

SNEAK PEAK

“Alero, we have had this conversation over and over again.” Kyle set his glass down on the cream marble side stool and approached his wife.

Her heart raced a fraction. She loved this man more than he deserved. But he was her husband. That’s the way it ought to be.

Kyle turned her jaw with two fingers. A jolt of lightening flashed across her chin to the pit of her stomach. “I don’t want you in Los Angeles with me. You know why. Those wretched male models won’t give you a break. I don’t want any idiot messing about with my wife.” His tone was flat and uncompromising.

Alero shook her jaw free from his hold. “I want to have my husband with me. Like a normal couple. I’m lonely, Kyle. Your absence is hurting me, here.” She placed two fingers on her chest. “You haven’t made love to me since you came home. It’s either you’ve had your fill with other women or you don’t find me attractive.” She glared at him.

In her white see-through chemise, and matching lacy thongs she wore all day, she expected him to throw her across their silky sheets, and pound her till she screamed for help, but he hadn’t, and she was very worried.

“Give me time to de-stress, Alero. Three months of constant work takes its toll. I want you. And you’re an attractive woman. Always have been. Nothing has changed.”
 
Alero eyeballed him. “Everything has changed, Kyle. It’s high time you face it. Unlike you, I don’t want to bury my head in the sand..."

#Wives: When #Anger Hurts Your #Marriage


Welcome to Advice Bench!
I watched a TV programme recently in which a married woman yelled, insulted and kicked her husband out of their home because she heard he cheated on her. She was still nursing a one year old baby.

Later on, this woman started therapy, and she learnt a few truths about herself.
She made the following admissions; 

1. She was difficult to talk to.
2. She didn't like to hear  the truth.
3. She had anger management problems.
4. She agreed her marriage had problems for sometime, but she just pushed the issues aside. 5. She acknowledged she had being subtly rejecting her husband's flirtatious advances.

After I watched the show, I connected the story with reality. There are marriages where the women run their foul mouth to overwhelming proportions, the men are no where to be found. I'm not saying the women's anger were the only problems. But it was a BIG part of the problem.

So today, I want to share my views with you on how a woman's anger can hurt her marriage.

You walk outside your marriage vows when you scream and rant at the man you vowed to honour and cherish.

Many women are hurting their marriages with bouts of uncontrollable temper tantrums.

Yes, you are hurt, angry and frustrated. In so many instances, you have every right to be. For example, you just found out your husband is having an affair, or he has taken another loan without your knowledge, or he is too busy to care about you or the children and so on.

Then you decide to take the following actions;
1. To make him feel some of the pain and hurt you feel, you lash out at him.

2. You yell and strip him of every ounce of dignity. Men have huge ego. When you trample on his pride, get ready to live with his evil side.

3. You insult him, irrespective of who is listening; your kids, family members, neighbours or friends.

4. If you live abroad, you go as far as kicking him out of the house for a day, two or years. In Africa, you don't have the luxury of evicting your husband. You will have your husband, his family and the African society to answer to.

I ask

Wow! Tell me, in all the instances where you have let out your anger so viciously, how did it all end? Did you achieve your goal? I guess that depends on what your goal was in the first place.

When did anyone ever achieve a brilliant result from yelling at their husbands?

Even if you win your husband back in a make up sex, you have cracked a few eggs that you can never find whole again.

What are the effects?

1. In your anger, you would have said so many hurtful words that have a lasting damage on your husband's psyche even after you make up.

2. The children are emotionally distraught with dad and mum's scary yelling.

3. When this behaviour becomes a pattern, one day, your husband is going to take a walk and not look back. And you are going to be left wondering how your marriage went berserk.
Why you need not yell

1. No matter what your husband's offense is, you can control your rage. There are times when silence is a more deadly weapon to achieve your aim.


Remember - Two wrongs don't make a right.

2. It takes two to fight.

3. If you open your mouth to insult your husband, you are unwise. In other words, among fools, you are the leader of the pack!

So if your aim is to be a single mum, don't waste your time reading further. Come on, read on.

What you can do differently

1. It is time to calm down when you want to yell at your husband. He is not your child, even if you think he acts like one.

2. Take a walk to clear your head.
 
3. Think through what you want to say. Ask yourself, what do I want to achieve? If you want your husband to quit being a mess, you need a wise approach. Yelling is not going to achieve anything good.

4. You need to learn to talk to him like the matured woman you are, and not fly off the handle at the drop of a hat.

5. You might even decide not to talk when you are so angry. Let him stew in his guilt. Talk when he is not prepared to go on the defensive. I use this tip and it works for me. *wink*

Quit shrieking, and start talking with a clear head.

The #Woman in #Marriage - Patient Woman

Welcome to the concluding part of The Woman in Marriage series.

Series seven is titled - The Patient Woman



Seven weeks ago, I mentioned in series one that I was invited to speak to a group of married women about - The Woman in Marriage - during their Mother's Day Symposium.


To read the first post on The Forgiving Woman, click here

Find the second post on The Praying Woman, here
For the third post on The Virtuous Woman, click here.
The fourth post on The Wise Woman is here.
And for the fifth post on The Submissive Woman, click here.
You will find last week's post on The Faithful Woman here

On today's post, I'm going to share a few truths on The Patient Woman in marriage.

7. The Patient Woman –  Gen 24 - 25

Rebekah was a patient woman.

The marriage journey as we found in series one, is a long and an uncertain path.

Marriages are froth with mixed issues. There are homes where the husbands ignore the needs of their wives. In others, there are rumours or evidence of betrayal, illegitimate children, emotional and physical abuse, interference from others, lack of communication and so on.

(i) As a woman in marriage, you need to allow the word of God remould your life. Patience is a virtue and a fruit of the Holy Spirit.

(ii) Whatever your situation, wait for the Lord; be strong and let your heart take courage, wait for the Lord. Ps 27:4.

Patience is the ability to WAIT, to ACCEPT, and to TOLERATE delays, problems and sufferings without becoming annoyed or anxious.

Rebekah was a beautiful virgin and a godly woman with a kind heart. She married Isaac. And she was barren. It took 20 years of prayers and her husband’s plea to God before she had children, twins – Jacob and Esau. Gen 25.

You need tons of PATIENCE to receive special gifts from God. All the barren women in the bible gave birth to divinely anointed children. Except one. The only woman recorded in the bible who renamed childless, was Michal, one of the wives of King David.
Michal (King Saul’s daughter) was cursed by her husband. Do you know why? She mocked King David when he danced before the Lord without restraint. 2 Sam 6.

(iii) No matter the marital difficulties, the patient woman seeks God’s face in prayer without giving up, until an answer is received. James 5:7-8.

(iv) The woman in marriage is patient with her husband, her children and others because of her love, and she knows she is just as imperfect as they are.

Rebekah was a patient woman who also knew when to lean on her husband. This was part of her strength.

(v) Love is patient and kind and so is the woman in marriage who vowed to love and to cherish her husband.

(vi) She is a contented woman because she knows that godliness and contentment is great gain. 1 Tim 6:6-7. Also she knows that we brought nothing into this world, and it is certain, we can carry nothing out.

(vii) The patient wife does not PUSH her husband to make money nor commits adultery to satisfy her ambition or monetary appetite. Instead, she asks God to teach her husband to make wealth, to establish the work of his hand and to rebuke the devourer from their resources.

(viii) The patient mother knows that children are not always going to get it right the first time. She is content to watch her child explore and discover, question and learn. She is not threatened by acts of rebellion because she knows who her authority comes from and how to correct the behaviour with love and firmness.

(ix) Like God, her Father, she knows that sometimes human hearts are bent on evil, yet God’s mercies are new every morning. Ps 103:14. And love covers a multitude of sin.

On the other hand, the impatient woman pushes her husband to commit crime to gain wealth, connection or political power. She seeks vengeance, finds it hard to forgive because she is too impatient to wait for God to respond.

Again, the impatient woman is pushed to disloyalty with ease, finds it a challenge to fully submit to her husband and to remain virtuous in times of trials  or hardship.

The impatient woman acts unwisely when she hurts her marriage or works against her husband because he refuses to do her bidding.

CONCLUSION

Dear women, there are many decisions you are going to make in your life and in your marriage. At all times, making the right decision is vital. The closer you are to God, the better the chance you have of making the RIGHT decision. As you make your bed, so you lie on it.
 
My plea to you is this, do not resent the weaknesses in your husband, children or in others, but prayerfully guard against them. Ask God to help them overcome their weaknesses to HIS glory. Remember to also ask God to help you overcome your weaknesses too.

Jesus says to you and to me; “I have said these things to you, that in ME you may have PEACE. In the world you will have tribulation. But take heart, I have overcome the world.”

(x) The patient woman is an embodiment of the six other attributes discussed in the entire series.

There is a song that ministers to me when I’m worried; WHAT A FRIEND WE HAVE IN JESUS.

And another song that I find uplifting when I’m down or sick or afflicted in anyway;
YOU RAISE ME UP.

As a woman in marriage, you need the spiritual hotline number to God the Father. Jer33:3 “Call to ME, and I will show you GREAT and MIGHTY things which you do not know.”

Final quotes from movies: “If you think your husband and others are never going to fail, or you think you are not going to fail, you are a FOOL doomed to fail miserably.”

“Love is perfected by every trial and heartbreak, spend the rest of your life perfecting that love.”

My Prayer is that God will strengthen us to be the Godly women in marriage he created us to be.

Now unto God, Immortal, Invincible, the only wise God be all adoration and power in Jesus name, Amen.
