Felicia Rogers is visiting my blog today to talk about her new book, Diamond Mine. Diamond Mine is the first book in her Wounded Soldiers series.
A beautiful country marred by violence, slavery, and illegal diamonds…
A writer and an ex-soldier caught in the middle…
Hannah Baker is a frustrated writer, who needs to get away. Unfortunately, with limited funds and an editor breathing down her neck, she is stuck. Then without warning an offer comes, one she can’t refuse.
Rory Chance is an ex-British soldier seeking absolution. In a remote area of South Africa, he hides in a monastery until the needs of a friend call him back into the real world.
Hannah sat on a chair, her legs curled underneath her. The long flowing skirt, which looked like something from the seventies, was bunched in a wad. Rory sat across from her. His attire wasn’t that much different. Tan bell-bottom pants and a light blue shirt with a large, open collar graced his muscular body. Smooth, tanned, well-defined skin could be seen through the open V. They both looked like something from Saturday Night Fever.
Munching on a carrot stick, Hannah laid down a pair of fives. They’d played every card game they could think of and some she’d sworn Rory had made up. Boredom was their biggest enemy. No TV, no phone, no Internet, no books, just each other.
“Explain this to me again. Why are we waiting here?”
“Because I’ve sent word to Father Thomas. He’ll be here any moment.”
“I don’t think he’s coming.”
Rory arched a brow. “Well, of course, you don’t.”
“Don’t mock me.” She leaned on the table, her head rested in her hands. “Look, we’ve been here for almost a week. If he was coming, wouldn’t he have been here by now.”
“Maybe. But they don’t have the same system here as you have in America. News travels slower.”
“Besides, why are you rushing things? Don’t you enjoy my company?”
Hannah squirmed. If he only knew.
Wonder what happens next! While we ponder that question, let’s move on and see what others have said about Diamond Mine.
“Felicia Rogers' Diamond Mine is an impulsive, adventurous tale of friendship, loyalty and love. This exciting and fast-paced novel will leave you mooning over the characters and yearning for more. I loved every second!” –Chamera Sampson, author and reviewer
“A great read! Real, likable, and relatable characters. I loved this story it was filled with drama, suspense, and love...but there were 2 things that stood out...the 1st was the way Felicia incorporated God into real life it really is more about the way you act not just what you say the 2nd was the bringing to light the real danger of human trafficking that goes on in this world still today that as Americans we are pretty blinded to.” –Danielle Williams, reader
It sounds an exciting story, Felicia. :)
