The Desires of His Heart Synopsis

Thaddeus Bruce Raymond III is an aspiring writer who knows a thing or two about weddings
since he has been in more of them, over the years, than he can count. Always the groomsman,
never the groom, Thaddeus has no problem being invited to a wedding or even being in one; but
he feels haunted by the fact that he has yet to stroll down the matrimonial aisle in a wedding of
his own. A great guy by anyone’s standards, Thaddeus has to reconcile that he remains single
due to circumstances which have caused him to be a bit reluctant to fall in love.

Tiffany Waters, his first love and the mother of his child, is a constant thorn in Thaddeus’ side.
Her need to control him, and every aspect of his relationship with their daughter, has reared its
ugly head as the main culprit in making him apprehensive when it comes to relationships with
women in general. Once bitten and twice shy in matters of the heart, Thaddeus tries to focus on
reaching his goals in life, while constantly juggling issues concerning love, baby mama drama, a
dead-end job, and other stressors in life.

A damaged perception of relationships has Thaddeus all but ready to give up on any idea of
finding a wife…that is until Vanessa comes along. Beautiful, witty, and down to earth, Vanessa
turns out to be the perfect match for Thaddeus; but is it too late for him to separate himself from
his past issues with women long enough to cultivate a relationship with Vanessa? Can love
conquer all, or will his past break the heart of his future?

The Desires Of His Heart is an engrossing story of one man’s desire to move past his trust issues and insecurities in order to give love a chance.
