Having a lazy Saturday afternoon

Find out what living under the threat of car-bombs and assassination attempts is like when you’re just trying to plan a wedding and honeymoon. That’s the stuff of modern day love stories. Isn’t it? You mean no one tried to blow  up the building that you were working in while you were on the phone trying to reach your boyfriend and tell him that you wanted to marry him?

I thought everyone lived like that nowadays. Well, that is the life of Tina McIntyre. Car-bombs; wedding announcements; wild car-chases with people shooting at you; exotic island vacations. Who knew that is was going to be the spice of life for this young couple when they fell in love at first sight?

The new novel from the keyboard of Marchela Wells: Rising from the Ashes, just released by Xlibris publishers contains jaw dropping scenes of love and terror against the backdrop of the exciting city of Houston, Texas. Rather than pages filled with Cowboys and Indians, Ms. Wells presents a world of life amidst construction deadlines for office towers; violent rapists seeking vengeance for testimony that sentenced them to long prison terms.

Just as Tina finds the love of her life, three men return to steal her happiness away. James Payne, the leader of the gang struggles mightily to find the one thing that will make him happy. That is the torture and death of Tina McIntyre. Nothing will stand in his way, except one thing. Tina McIntyre is no push-over. She has become an excellent marksman and learned self-defense. In the end, though, she is forced to make a decision that might cost the life of both herself and her newly found love. Will Tina be strong enough to make the right choice?  Will Payne make a mistake that will keep him from his goal?

Find out for yourself in this wonderful story of love, romance, oh, did I not mention the steamy sex scenes? Horrific violence and tender love. All bound together in a spell-binding thriller from these fine retailers:
