[USPRwire, Thu Mar 30 2017] Ximena Villarreal is the only daughter of the wealthiest banker in Mexico City. Her life seems perfect, her future planned. Existence inside her family’s protective bubble isn’t exciting but it is safe. Until the night the bubble shatters and she gets kidnapped. Alejandro Montalban, Ximena’s alienated cousin and the family’s black sheep, throws himself in the quest to rescue her.
“This book is a labor of love,” said author Rebeca Gómez Galindo. “The male lead in the book is inspired by my cousin Alejandro Moreno who lived an amazing life, albeit far too short. This story is a tribute to him and a way for people to remember the great hero that he was.”
In the book Alejandro is there to guide our heroine through a myriad of adventures and experiences as she struggles in the process of growing into an inspirational young woman. Readers have liken the book to a “Romeo and Juliet meets revenge story.” A must-read for the new adult reader, 18-30, however, Kidnapped Innocence is a page turner for readers of all adult ages.
“Rebeca’s story grabs the reader from the first chapter, immersing you in the life of Ximena, and wanting you to know what happens next,” said Lisa Umina, president and publisher of Halo Publishing. “Will Alejandro be able to save Ximena from the kidnappers, or do the fates have something else in store? Trust me; you’ll want to read on to learn their fate.”
Rebeca has been creating stories since grade school and continues to delight readers through a variety of publications. Her first book, a collection of short stories entitled Habitantes de mi Tiempo was published in Spanish. Each story features a character with careers that normally do not have a voice; miners, maids, immigrants. Rebeca weaves colorful stories about each character shedding light on their value.
