Now that I have your undivided attention let me tell you about a wonderful new romance/thriller from Marchela Wells: Rising from the Ashes. The story opens in Tina McIntyre’s own words:
“I was born Christina Laura McIntyre, but that was a name that belonged to another person in another time. Now, it’s Tina, because Tina would never allow those boys or even men to violate her that way again. Christina did fight back, but lost the struggle that terrible night seventeen years ago. Tina was born when Christina died. Do I remember that night? There is not even one second of that terrible night that I can ever forget.”
This is the story in the life of a young woman, gang-raped at age sixteen, psychologically damaged and unable to interact with men for seventeen years. One day she is invited to go along with her boss to a business luncheon with a local construction manager. From the very first moment they see each other both are overtaken by love at first sight. Clifford Stinson, a very handsome and virile man sets Tina’s blood on fire. She cannot control her emotions and struggles throughout the luncheon to maintain her equilibrium.
If love was all it would take to describe this event that would be the end. But at the same time she finds love, the three boys, now convicted rapists return and find her. Car-bombs, building-bombs, car-chases, gun-battles — all the stuff of a modern day love story (isn’t that what happens when women fall in love nowadays?) compete for her attention. All lead to a thrilling climax where she must make a decision that will either lead to both of their deaths of the end of her torment.
Did I mention steamy love scenes? Yeah, those things too.
