New Name, New Upcoming Release

All my releases from now on will bear my full name, Suzanne G. Rogers, and I hope to have my entire backlist updated on 1/1/16. I’m keeping my fingers crossed that the process goes smoothly, but I have Amazon’s number on hand in case it doesn’t! That being said, I’m releasing a new romantic fantasy novella, Whimsical Tendencies, in December.

Blurb: Although she has no memories before the quake that destroyed the kingdom of Augury, Cypher McCall holds a steadfast hatred of the repressive Cauldian regime now ruling the country. Because her magical gifts are deemed subversive, she does her best to avoid detection. Unfortunately for Cypher, however, she’s too beautiful to ignore. After a Cauldian contingent arrives in her hometown, a chance encounter leaves her repulsed by the arrogant Prince Ewan and attracted to his distant cousin, Lord Joss.

When she learns the prince plans to tear down the ruins of nearby Castle Augur, Cypher vows to stop him. Although handsome Lord Joss tries to protect her from his vindictive cousin, Cypher can’t bring herself to trust the enemy. At the same time, nightmares and dreams nudge her toward reclaiming childhood memories. She stumbles on a silver key that she hopes will unlock her past, but first she must confront a long repressed horror at the Castle Augur ruins.

Will the knowledge of Cypher’s true identity tear her apart or will it empower her to restore everything she’s ever loved?

Whimsical Tendencies began as a short story, published by MuseitUp Publishing as Cypher. I rewrote the manuscript, nearly doubling the size in the process. The tale includes wizards, magical plants, ghosts, the living, the dead, and things in between. It’s available for pre-order now, for a December 11th release (just in time for Christmas).

Happy Halloween!

Happy Halloween, and please help me celebrate the release of my fantasy romance, Dani & the Immortals!

Dani&theImmortals6x9When Dani was a teen, she had it all; a starring role in her own television series, a wonderful family, and her health. A few years later, everything has changed for the worse—and her time is running short. All she wants to do before she dies is to fall in love, but when she’s kidnapped and taken to Asgard of Norse mythology, she becomes enmeshed in a quarrel between immortals. Prince Rein lends a hand in her quest to return home, and she begins to think the handsome elf has captured her heart. After a magical artifact goes missing, however, he may be forced to marry another woman to avert a diplomatic catastrophe. To find the artifact and save the prince, Dani must undertake a dangerous quest involving ogres, dark fairies, and underworld criminals. Ultimately, however, she’ll have to defy Odin himself.

Excerpt from DANI & THE IMMORTALS

DANICOVER7When Dani emerged from the building, Rein was lounging on the Embassy stoop. He sprang to his feet as she approached.

“Did you have any luck?”

“Are you following me?”

“Just looking out for the Druid’s girl. I’m sure he’d do the same for me if the situation were reversed.”

“For the last time, I’m not his girl.”

A glimmer of a smile lifted the corners of Rein’s lips. “Good. I wouldn’t want him mad at me.”

“Why would he be mad?”

“For putting moves on you.”

“You haven’t put moves on me.”

“Not yet.”

His gaze riveted onto hers and the air between them seemed to smolder…until Dani remembered her condition.

“Rein, there’s something you should know about me. I’m—” She broke off when she noticed an Asgard City police patrol striding toward them. “Uh-oh.”

He followed her glance. “Hang on.”

When the elf pulled her close and kissed her, ripples of pleasure went down her spine. The kiss seemed to go on for a long time, but she made no effort to break it off. Admittedly, being kissed passionately by a handsome prince hadn’t been on her bucket list. Had she known how good it would feel, however, it might have been at the top.

When Rein released her, two bright red spots had appeared over his cheekbones. “Sorry about that.” He averted his eyes. “I-I didn’t want the police to recognize us. I’m unwelcome and you’re illegal. It wouldn’t be a good thing for either of us to be detained.”

“Don’t apologize. Are we safe now?”

He glanced around. “Yeah, they’re gone.”

“That was quick thinking on your part.”

“I hope you weren’t offended.”

“Not at all.” Her lips were still tingling from his kiss.

“You said before there was something about you that I should know.”

Dani made a split second decision against telling him about her condition. The bad news would spoil the moment they’d just had, and a long-term relationship didn’t matter anyway since she’d hopefully found a way home.

“Oh…just that I’m not so illegal anymore. It seems I have a job.”

Guest Author Juli D. Revezzo • Druid Warrior’s Heart

DRUIDWARRIORSHEART3flat400The life of a budding druid in DRUID WARRIOR’S HEART
by
Juli D. Revezzo

In my fantasy romance series, Celtic Stewards Chronicles, a family whose bloodline goes back to the beginning of the world has to oversee a mythic battle. This battle happens at certain intervals throughout time (500 years to be exact), and in each generation, the duty falls to one woman. In the first book in the series, Passion’s Sacred Dance, the steward, Stacy, lived in our time. However, in the second—and latest book—DRUID WARRIOR’S HEART, the story deals with her ancestor, Ruth, who lived in Ireland in the 1500s.

Each time, the women are sent a guardian from the ranks of the Irish gods, the Tuatha dé Danaan. This time, handsome and mysterious warrior Isaac Connel is chosen as her guardian. He too was part of the first book, a very small part, so in DRUID WARRIOR’S HEART, I got to play with him a bit more. What could a man who, when we first met him, was learned, a doctor, no less, spring from? He’s a soldier, at heart, yes, and very much interested in Ruth and protecting she and her family (and does he fall in love with Ruth? Well, that’s a secret the book will tell) but also, it seems he’s very much interested in peace, in scholarly things, even when we first meet him. For, after all, all battles end and 500 years is a very long time. What will he do after the battle’s end?

Isaac helped me answer the question of on what do these guardians spend the bulk of their time. In his case, he wished to study; a lover of stories, and holding the druids of the Tuatha dé Danaan with which he works in high regard, he watches one he admires very closely, and wonders, what might it be like to become a druid. What magics and mysteries might he learn? What will the druid’s decades’ long scholarly career require of him?

That is, after he gets done battling the evil Balor, and securing Ruth’s heart and hand. How does he deal with the battles ahead? Well, you’ll have to read to find out!

Synopsis:

As the latest in her family’s long line of stewards, Ruth Macken awaits the arrival of a warrior sworn to the Tuatha dé Danaan, the Celtic gods her family has served since the beginning of time. For on that day, a magical battle will erupt. A war between druids and an evil that will decide the fate of mankind.

Isaac Connel knows the battle is imminent, and is ready to fight, once again but from the moment he sees Ruth flitting around the sacred ground, he’s captivated by her fiery charms and a need to protect her.

Despite Isaac’s assurances and the dreams that guide her, what can Ruth and her lover do to drive off this evil? Despite everything, will the world end at the hands of an evil god?

If you’d like to give DRUID WARRIOR’S HEART a look, the book is available at:
Amazon Kindle Unlimited, and in paperback
