About the Book

Includes the booklet Narcissism “The Killer of Love” What could drive an individual who is emotionally strong and highly successful, with a hearty appetite for life, to suddenly lose all desire to live? What could possibly strip a religious person of all belief in God with the blink of an eye? Those vital questions are about to be answered. A Beautifully Disturbing Saga of Love and Survival. Within the throes of a madly passionate romance is the most ghastly soul rape and mind crime conceivable. The Great American “Psychopathic” Love Story exists in a world where nothing is real as perceived. Beneath the surface of what seems to be a fairy tale romance is the outline for what may very well be the perfect murder, and if you are naive enough to think it can’t happen to you, you’re wrong… dead wrong. Steven lives a life that most can only dream of. At a young age, he achieved fame in the music industry with the now iconic heavy metal band Slayer, and later as a world-renowned airbrush artist. He has everything that a man could want, except for what he desires most, which is, true love. A handsome, successful, charming man that lives and breathes romance, but has been unable to find the one woman that can captivate his heart. One glorious afternoon, Ashley stumbles into his life, and she is everything that he’s hoped for and dreamed of. Their story begins as a passionate, tender, and erotic tale of two people falling in love. Together they seem to have the love that dreams are made of and fairy tales are written about. But do they really? Sometimes when it seems too good to be true, the love of your life may not be the person you think they are. On the surface, Steven and Ashley are the quintessential portrait of an enchanting romance, but underneath an illusion of ideal love is a transparent layer of lies, manipulation, and deceit. Unknowingly, Steven has become trapped in the lethal world of a pathological psychopath. Be prepared to have every one of your emotions assaulted by this unique true story. You will laugh, feel the passion and intense love, you’ll get angry, experience excruciating pain, and yes, there will be tears. Live the story as the author experienced it. A memoir that is insanity in the raw, and just when you think it is all over, it begins again before leading to a shocking ending that will not soon be forgotten. 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.
