WILLIAMSBURG, Va. (PRWEB) October 20, 2015
Two people, serendipitously brought together by fate and circumstance, travel on a journey they would have never expected to face. A poignant story of remarkable love unveils within the pages of author Victoria Leigh Gabriella's "A Real Love at Last" (published by Xlibris), receiving its new marketing campaign after its successful release in 2014.
Michael Stevens, a retired former Marine sees Rebecca Connelly at a restaurant with another man who turns out to be her ex-husband, Tripp Richards. He notices Rebecca's agitation with Tripp's advances, prompting him to come to her rescue by pretending to be her boyfriend. The impromptu show successfully gets Tripp to leave. This begins a story that the two would never have foreseen in their 40 years of existence.
Michael meets her and asks her out. During their dates, Michael and Rebecca learn more about each other. They develop a deep, lasting connection that is unlike anything they have ever felt before. He tries to rush things before she is ready and she runs. He convinces her to give him another chance. They go on fiery, passionate, romantic escapades and finally meet each other’s families and friends. Michael then proposes. They get married, go on a honeymoon and other trips. However, Rebecca's ex-husband has trouble letting go of her and decides to come back and mess things up for their young marriage. Will they survive this assault? Will they be able to revel in "A Real Love at Last?"
A bold touch of mature love that stands out from the flood of young adult books on romance, "A Real Love at Last" gives readers a realistic view of love that has been scarred by time, made vulnerable by countless mistakes, yet courageous enough to try, once again, despite the terrible circumstances of the past.
Inspired by her own experience, the author wants to encourage those who have suffered the pain of being left behind to never give up on love, to keep going, and to face life with hope, passion and courage.
