The Dragon and The Rose

“If you enjoy lyrical writing, a bit of magic and medieval romance, I recommend this wonderful read!”
~Between the Lines
“A very romantic Victorian love story, circa 1854 during the Crimean war. Rifkin’s novel is epic in scope, meticulously researched and finely detailed. A genuinely sweet romance married to an exciting war/espionage story.”
"Reading Lady Gallant was a pleasure. The characters are relatable and the romance is touching. I highly recommend it to any fan of historical romance."

Veronica at The Romance Reviews says---"Rifkin weaves a tale of romance and adventure that could easily be shared around a blazing campfire. She builds characters who are changed by their experiences and rewards readers with an alpha male with the heart of a poet and distressed damsel who becomes so much more.”
Vicki at Sizzling Hot Books gave it 5 out of 5 hearts and states---“Iron Heart gives the classic epic adventures a run for their money. The major difference is that Leanora is just as smart and resourceful as Faran. A definite read for more than just romance readers.”
From Linda Abel at The Medieval Chronical says---"Iron Heart is a wonderfully captivating blend of medieval history and fantasy! And Gini Rifkin is a breath of fresh air to the world of medieval romance. Give yourself the gift of enjoyment and read Iron Heart.

A beautifully written story with an exquisite detailed setting for each scene and the enchanting landscape. The unexpected suspense with its twists and turns will keep your attention to the very end. This charming and emotion packed story is a must read.
Still Moments Magazine/DarleneLF
Victorian Dream is written with a rich depth of detail for those who love historical romance, particularly with a Victorian era setting. It is also nicely spiced with an underlying sense of mystery and danger. The attraction between Trelayne and Walker is nicely developed, and the author does an excellent job of putting you inside each character’s heart and mind.

Still Moments Magazine gave 5 Stars
A fun and entertaining story with a picturesque setting. You’ll bounce around the wagon with the charming main characters as they travel the bumpy terrain. Romance, drama, and adventure rolled into one. I was disappointed when the story ended because I wanted the journey to continue. A must read.
5 stars/ from Darlene @ Between the Pages/Still Moments Magazine
