In her memoir series Diary of a Middle-Age Sex Goddess, Elizabeth J. Winters Waite explores the complexities of life for a single mother in her sexual prime. Bridging the gap between Sex and the City and The Golden Girls, her stories detail raising three boys, running a successful all-female accounting firm, and pursuing passions that grow her soul, all while trying to get laid—or trying not to get laid, whichever the case may be— while on the never-ending quest for true love.
In Fragile Flower, the first volume in the series, Waite’s youngest son turns ten and, for his birthday, asks for a stepfather. Being a dutiful mother, Waite enrolls in three different dating sites and goes on fifty-three first dates—all in one year! But jumping back into the dating game after so many years isn’t easy. What are The Rules for being forty-something and back on the scene? How does a middle-age sex goddess protect her heart, her hearth and her family of three young sons while looking for love? Is it still considered “kissing frogs” when she can find something to like about everyone she goes out with?
