New book boldly gives readers a taste of the supposedly sacred promise of marriage

Author Mark Francis Schwab graces the publishing world with his literary prowess as he releases The Spouse Stealer. In this book made available through Xlibris, he engages readers with a story wherein marriages are lost and saving one’s family becomes an impossible task.

Set during the height of Buffalo’s Baby-Boomer’s interaction with the last of its blue-blooded, gilded-class monies, The Spouse Stealer introduces Jonathon Spector, a man living comfortably on the fringes of wealth, among very wealthy friends. His new “dating search” leads him through another gambit after his last divorce, and he engages in a series of debauchery. In his attempt to achieve a religiously felt “true love” again, he tries to qualify women for their true meaning, beyond mutually engaged sexual pleasures. Just as he finally settles down once more, a serial spouse stealer—in the form of a filthy rich and intriguing woman—emerges. Jonathan’s gatherings with friends become pointedly selective as the antagonist hosts everything at her Canadian beachfront estate. The dominance and self-serving attitude becomes clear as her veracity unfolds. Money, power and deceit materialize into everyone’s lives as forced yet visible presence no one wants to see has become a reality.

Marching an assemblage of unforgettable characters playing erratic twists and turns, The Spouse Stealer provides a candid and honest look into the world of lies, lust, and temptations. It gives readers a taste of the supposedly sacred promise of marriage. For more information on the book and view the “Hollywood video-trailer,” interested parties should log on to
