About ‘A Woman’s Worth’:
School media specialist, Gianne Marvray, has been through the worst two years of her life physically and emotionally. After a battle with cancer and all it entails, she is finally ready to start living her life again. She wants to see new places, meet new people and experience new things, but she isn’t ready for the rollercoaster ride she’s about to embark on when she meets Las Vegas personal trainer and raw vegan foods advocate, Marc Stafford.
After a four year absence, Marc comes home to Atlanta to attend a family celebration in one of his brother’s honor. He’s not thrilled about seeing his father, but he has promised his mother that he won’t throw off the family balance by being the only one of their six sons absent. All Marc wants to do is make an appearance at the event and spend a little time with his brothers. Little does he know that this is the night he will meet the woman who will forever change his life.
Gianne hit the Bluetooth button and said, “Call Stefanie.” In a few seconds, her friend’s sleepy voice answered. “Were you asleep already? It’s only ten-fifteen.”
“I was supposed to be watching TV,” she said with a sleepy laugh. “How did it go?”
“Better than I’d expected, and you were right, Stef.”
“The war paint.”
“You met somebody!” Stefanie said, suddenly sounding wide awake. “Who is he? Tell me all about it.”
“Don’t get all excited. He’s only in town for a few days then he’s going back to Las Vegas.”
“So, what’s his name? Details, details!”
“Marc Stafford. He’s a personal trainer.”
“Ooh, so he must be built, and…wait a minute. Isn’t your doctor named Stafford?”
“Yes, ma’am. He’s definitely built, and he’s the fourth son.” She waited for a response.
“You swing for the fences, girl.” Stefanie laughed. “Does he look anything like the brother who did your surgery? I remember him from the hospital. That man was fine.”
“There’s a strong resemblance, but Marc doesn’t look as serious and intense as Dr. Vic. Remember the picture in Dr. Stafford’s office with him and his wife and their sons?
“Yes, where they were on the beach.”
“Uh huh. I met all of them tonight, and Stef, they’re not just good looking, but they’re so nice. Well, most of them, anyway.”
“Hmm, sounds like there’s a story there.”
“You’d better believe it. Those men are a complicated bunch.”
