What would you do if the man that you have loved with all of your heart, since you were sixteen years old, asked you for a divorce out of the blue?

Tina finds herself torn between returning to her husband, her family life and the exciting relationship with her new lover. A Little Bit of Sinning is a story of lust, infidelity, love, and sacrifice, as well as, jealousy, domestic violence, forgiveness, and starting over. Tina's ride on life's roller coaster will keep you turning each page. Tina uses her wicked since of humor to smooth out the bumps and soften the pitfalls of life. She takes the bad with the good and gives as good as she gets, all with the sensuality, style and smoothness of a woman. Her love for and devotion to her children is strong, so much so, there is no sacrifice that she would not make for them. She eventually finds a way to return home to her husband, to give her children the family life that she feels they ought to have, without fully returning to her marriage.

I hope you enjoy reading it as much as I enjoyed writing it.
