A Chance of Rayne • New Release

Although the Harrison daughters look almost like twins, one was born on the right side of the blanket while the other was not. Rayne is tasked with drawing in a suitable husband for her sister, Garnet, but soon discovers her quarry is a kindred spirit from her past. When Rayne refuses to deceive Lord Finch any longer, her father makes good his threat to exile her overseas, to New York City. Although Rayne is determined to survive, she is quickly ensnared in a web of vice. Without friends or resources, she is slated to be auctioned to the highest bidder at one of the most elite brothels in Manhattan. Can Lord Finch rescue his beloved before it’s too late?

A Chance of Rayne is available exclusively at Amazon, and is part of the KindleUnlimited program. Although it’s Book Four of The Mannequin series, it can be read as a standalone.

What reviewers are saying:

5-Stars: “While Rogers has always compared favorably to Robin McKinley in her ability to write fairytale romances in realistic, historical settings, I couldn’t help but be reminded this time of Frances Hodgson Burnett of “The Secret Garden” and “A Little Princess” fame (even before I read the sneak peek for the next book, lol) despite the more mature topics in this story. There are clear “good guys” and “bad guys”, yet Rogers characters are still believable because they are very human and appealing.” ~ Vibliophile (Vine Voice)

5-Stars: “There’s plenty of scandal and outlandish events, but I love stories about a poor, down on her luck girl getting a happy ending. ” ~ Reader

Diary of a Mid-List Author • Episode One

Over the years, people have come to me for advice about becoming an author. I don’t consider myself a guru or an expert, but I’ve amassed a great many opinions over the last twenty years and I don’t mind sharing!

Diary of a Mid-List Author will focus on topics about the business of writing, based on my own personal experiences. Not everything I’ve tried has been a success, naturally, but I’ve learned a great deal from my failures.

I’m hoping to engage not just writers, but anyone who is interested in taking on a new endeavor. Have a look at my premiere episode, which is short and sweet. My goal is to post a new episode every Friday, so I hope you stay tuned. ~ Suzanne
