Romancing the Rogue proves just how talented an author Erica Ridley really is. She took a genre that I am not a particular fan of and turned a gothic romance into a beautiful and intriguing journey. Rebecca and Daniel's road to happiness has not been an easy one. The trek has proved treacherous and littered with obstacles like broken hearts, secret longings and prideful actions that drove apart a friendship that could have led to so much more. When a chance to mend fences presents itself, will a love connection blossom from dire circumstances? Ms. Ridley manages to stay true to the genre of romance while veering off into an often overlooked area such as gothic and giving it the life breath of heart, that it sometimes lacks.
