Countdown Deal • A Gift for Fiona • #99cents

Originally posted on S.G. Rogers, Author:

AG4Fcover With one sister married and another soon to be engaged, Fiona Robinson worries she’ll be on the shelf. She pins her hopes on a handsome viscount, but his unexpected proposal to another girl hands her a stinging and demoralizing defeat. A new acquaintance awakens all her senses–until she realizes he’s related to the girl who stole her beau. On the heels of her public humiliation, should Fiona instead consider marriage to a much older man whom she could never love?

Fiona’s unconventional, earthy looks and mischievous personality appeal to Rory Braithwaite much more than any other woman he’s ever met. Unfortunately, his sister has been the means of ruining Fiona’s happiness. Can he convince Fiona of his sincerity before she makes a mistake she’ll regret for the rest of her life…and his?

This sweet Victorian romance, set in 1876 England, is having a countdown sale! From Tuesday, August 25th to…

#FREEBIE August 15 – 16 • DUKE OF A GILDED AGE

Originally posted on S.G. Rogers, Author:

FINALDOGAcoverDuke of a Gilded Age is a novel that took me a long time to write because of the extensive research involved. In addition to traditional Victorian-era manners and etiquette, I needed to know the challenges involved in Trans-Atlantic travel from America to England, what New York looked like in the summer of 1890, and what sorts of music and food were common. Perhaps more importantly, the story line of how an American-born duke would fit in to English society appealed to me very much. To my way of thinking, a young fellow who grew up in the rough-and-tumble melting pot of Brooklyn would have a far different attitude than a lad who’d always known he would inherit a title one day. Wesley Parker is brash and often bold (except where women are concerned) and not afraid of a bare knuckle fight if the need arises.

THE MANNEQUIN • All the World’s a Stage

And all the men and women merely players…”
William Shakespeare

In The Mannequin, similar to this quote from As You Like It, the characters seem to have particular roles to play. The heroine is a Poor Relation and the hero is a Beastly Duke, but neither one has been cast quite properly and it’s up to circumstance to sort them out.

After Aubrey Whittingham’s family drowns in a ferry boat accident, he descends into the depths of despair…perhaps never to return. His grandmother, the dowager duchess, hires Rosamund as a companion in a desperate bid to reach the young duke before he wastes away. Having lost her own parents, the girl is uniquely qualified to understand Aubrey’s pain…if he’ll let her.

Like any wounded animal, Aubrey snarls and lashes out at his rescuer, but Rosamund has grown used to insults from living with…

Excerpt • DUKE OF A GILDED AGE

Originally posted on S.G. Rogers, Author:

DOGAcoveridea5In Duke of a Gilded Age, Brooklyn-born Wesley Parker discovers he’s the heir to an English dukedom. Crossing the Atlantic in 1890 can be fraught with peril, however, from errant icebergs to mechanical failure. When Wesley volunteers for a rescue mission in the middle of the ocean, he never dreamed his adventure could cost him his life.

Excerpt:

The ship rolled to the one side just then, lying almost flat in the water. Stephen was thrown into Wesley and they both ended up on the floor. Nearby, the sound of breaking glass was followed closely by the strong odor of alcohol. The ship finally righted itself, accompanied by a cacophony of ominous creaks. Wesley and Stephen got to their feet.

“Do you smell that? We must still be in the saloon,” Stephen said. “And if the ship experiences another roll like the one we just had, it will sink…
