Meet the Author
Rebecca Gallo was first indoctrinated into the romance genre by her babysitter who watched hours upon hours of daytime soap operas. She harbored many inappropriate crushes on fictional characters such as John Black from “Days of Our Lives,” Orry Main from the mini-series “North & South,” and Edward Fairfax Rochester from Jane Eyre. She is still in love with Davy Jones from The Monkees.
Rebecca currently lives in southern Arizona with her husband, son, and a tuxedo cat with a limp. When she isn’t swooning over book boyfriends or dreaming up romances, she can be found educating the youth of America. Or eating tacos.
Roderick fell in love with Ellie not because he wanted to but because he was unable to deny his feelings for her. He is a man with secrets and when those secrets are exposed both of their lives and hearts are left devastated.
Ellie never expected to see him again, but destiny must have had other ideas. Roderick wants a second chance, but will he be able to convince her to give him a second chance especially when Ellie has a secret of her own?
Both of these characters have made mistakes in their pasts and walking away would have been the easy solution, but some things are worth the risk.
