A Gentleman and a Rogue cleverly blends the fantastical and the historical into something bizarrely believable. A must read, whether you are a particular fan of the genre or not...because real heartfelt romance is still at the heart of the story. - 4 Stars, Long & Short Reviews.
"Once again Stephanie Burkhart has pulled readers into a world filled with beauty, full moons, passion, wolves, and strife. Danube in Candlelight is a fantastic book filled with endearing characters, vivid descriptions and a story that flows well and is hard to put down." Definately one "You Need to Read." - Lupa, "You Gotta Read Reviews."
