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
