Amara An Afrika Konginin

A retelling of a classic tale with an intriguing twist…

He thrived on a life in the fast lane, filled with meaningless sex, always partied hard, beautiful promiscuous women, and not finding love. She had a kind of understated beauty, perhaps it was because she was so disarmingly unaware of her allurement. He was set in his womanizing ways and affluent lifestyle until she saw the person he was inside, his true soul…

All Seventeen-year-old Amara Imani wants is her freedom… She has endured several years of emotional and physical abuse at the hands of the Lerato family. On her journey towards securing her freedom and self-discovery, she ends up meeting twenty-four year-old Sebastián Dê Santos. The man is devilishly handsome, arrogant, charming, rich, and notorious womanizer, so why can’t Amara see who he truly is?

He falls for her hard and fast…but his affluent lifestyle, playboy ways and ex-lover may prove to be problematic…
