Ghost of a Rose is the first romance of it's kind. Without any knowledge of its exsistence, the author documented from the beginning to end of his relationship with a pathological narcissist. The media has incorrectly portrayed Narcissistic Personality Disorder long enough. This is the true nature of the beast, and as melodramatic it may seem at times, this is what a victim experiences when having the life sucked out of him or her by an emotional vampire. You'll witness first hand the idealization "honeymoon" stage, the gaslighting phase, the abandonment, the torment, confusion, awakening, and healing as it all took place. Through the eyes of the author, you'll bear witness to a man systematically destroyed by a narcissist until his life is left in ruin.
