Larken

Larken is a Victorian romance, a melodrama, and a little bit of mystery in one book!

Synopsis:

The sole survivor of a train accident, young Larken Burke is dubbed the Miracle Orphan. Four years later, however, her life is far from fortunate. Because of her emotional and physical scars, she believes she’s un-marriageable. With little hope for the future, she agrees to wed a gentleman she’s never met. Unfortunately, his aloof manner proves difficult to take.

Marked by romantic tragedy and the loss of his brother, Brandon King has forsworn marriage. Obliged to take in a ward, he advertises for a mail-order bride to raise the boy.

Charming New Cover for DUKE OF A GILDED AGE #Victorianromance

Originally posted on S.G. Rogers, Author:

DOGAcoveridea5I’m pleased to unveil the sweet new cover for my historical romance, Duke of a Gilded Age! The parasol on the cover reminds me of the treasured pink parasol given to Belle by Wesley Parker’s mother. Although the pink tulle parasol has nothing to do with the plot, I’ve always adored such things. Therefore, I was delighted with the cover image, which could have been taken in Central Park, next to one of its many lakes. Plus, I like the girl’s “buttoned up” look, which fits Belle’s very prim and proper personality. Thanks for celebrating with me on Duke of a Gilded Age‘s new cover! ~ S.G. Rogers

Synopsis:

When American-born Wesley Parker inherits a dukedom in 1890, he must learn to be an aristocrat. Assigned to the task is his attorney’s daughter, prim Belle Oakhurst. As they travel to England together on a luxurious ocean liner, their…

Excerpt:

“May I ask how you came to be alone with that scoundrel?” Philip asked.

“He followed me into the garden,” Kitty said. “I should have returned to the house right away, but he said my father gave him permission to speak with me. I thought if I refused, my father would be furious.”

“Why?”

“You wouldn’t understand. Your father has probably never asked you to do something you didn’t want to do.”

“You might be surprised. Try me.”

A sigh…

Excerpt:

“My friends have wagered that you won’t dance more than twice tonight,” Gryphon said. “I didn’t take that bet because I’m rather certain you won’t dance at all.”

Kitty’s smile faded as she realized Lord Gryphon and her former suitors were bent on meting out retribution for her refusals. It was no wonder she’d been ignored that evening; apparently a public humiliation had been prearranged amongst them.
