The Rogue Series centers on the relationship dynamics within an Irish rock band named Rogue.

I don’t feel I can fully express how fantastic this series is. Lara Ward Cosio is brilliant, bloody brilliant. The depth in which she writes these beautiful characters is captivating. You really feel their emotions and are absorbed into their world. Furthermore, I absolutely adore how she writes the most sexy, rugged men, who are all very much rock stars, yet they each have such sweetheart, gentlemen like qualities to them.
