False Illusions by Jennifer Youngblood πŸ’• Book Blitz, Freebie Offer and $25 Gift Card Giveaway πŸ’•(Romantic Suspense)

Is he the answer to her troubles or an intoxicating illusion that could turn deadly?

Is he the answer to her troubles or an intoxicating illusion that could turn deadly?

Single mom Olivia Burkhart struggles to rebuild her life after the murder of her fiancΓ©, Brent Allen, a deputy on Honeysuckle Island. She vows to never get involved with another cop, and then Flynn Yates enters her life with his playful smile and penetrating blue eyes.

As Olivia tries to come to terms with her feelings for Flynn, life delivers some hard blows that resurface her fears with a vengeance.

Then fate gives her the chance to work six weeks at an exclusive art gallery in charming and quaint Carmel, California by the sea.

When Olivia catches the eye of world-renown artist Xavier Kipling, a brooding and handsome widower, she finds herself drawn into a sophisticated world of wealth beyond anything she’d ever imagined.

A strange painting gives way to unsettling events, making Olivia question if her aching heart can discern between illusion and reality.

Is the Kipling mansion an idyllic haven, or a hiding place for deadly secrets?

The rustle of her silk gown kept time with the frantic clicks of her heels as she hurried to the designated meeting place. Almost there! Bud, her driver, would be waiting at the edge of the circular driveway. Picking her way over the cobblestone and around the conglomerate of expensive cars, Jaclyn quickened her pace when she spotted the limo.

Her hand had just grasped the door handle when he called her name, the sound carrying eerily on the fluid hands of the wind. 


“No,” she whimpered, trying to open the car door, but it was locked.


This time, the voice had a singsong quality that reminded her of a tiger toying with its prey. 

Slowly, she turned. 

“What’re you doing out here, darling?” Xavier asked as he came towards her. Dressed in a tuxedo, Xavier Kipling was by far the most handsome and elegant man Jaclyn had ever seen. In the pale light of the full moon, his high cheekbones had an ethereal quality that gave him a phantom-like appearance.

“Stop!” she shrieked. Holding out her hand, she shrank back against the limo.

He stopped in his tracks. “Darling, it’s me. No need to be afraid.”

“I can’t do this,” she cried. “You have to let me go.” A sob choked her throat. “Please.”

“I could never let you go,” he responded in a wounded tone. “I love you.”

Tears streamed down her cheeks as he stepped closer.

“It’s chilly out here,” he said pleasantly. “Let’s get you inside where you can get warm. It’s time to take your medicine.”

“No!” she barked, a suffocating panic engulfing her. “Bud was supposed to meet me out here. He’s taking me to the airport!”

He gave her a quizzical look. “The airport? Where are you going?”

“Back home to Florida,” she croaked. “To be with my mom.”

A soft chuckle of surprise sounded in his throat. “I’m afraid that’s not possible.”

She searched his chiseled face, which was infused with such nobility. No wonder she’d fallen so hard for him. She’d wanted to believe that he was good … that he truly loved her. 

“Darling, you’re confused. Your mother passed away. Don’t you remember?”

“No!” she uttered as an invisible noose tightened around her neck. He was a monster! “Y—you killed her?” Her entire body was filled with loathing as she glared at him. “How could you?” Her mother was all she had left. Xavier had stripped away her spirit … her dignity … and now he’d taken her precious mother.  

The tone of his voice remained calm, placating. “No, Jaclyn, she died of a heart attack. Surely you remember. I sent you the video link of the funeral while you were in the hospital.”

Her world began to spin. “No!” Was she confused? Everything was so muddled. She searched her brain. Memories of her stay at the hospital were fuzzy. She’d fought against the orderlies … ranted and raved about Xavier. But in the end, a curious blankness overshadowed all. It was the pills! It had to be. She wasn’t crazy … was she? “I have to go. Bud is waiting for me.”

“Who’s Bud?”

A silent scream started in her head, filling her entire body. Her words came out breathless. “My driver.” Her voice broke. “Please, Xavier. No more games.”

“We don’t have a driver named Bud. Stewart has been our driver for years.”

“No,” she screamed. “You’re a liar!” Bud was filling in for Stewart while he was looking after his ailing dad. She’d worked everything out with Bud. He purchased her airline ticket. He had her purse, which contained her driver’s license and what little cash she could squirrel away. Her throat closed, making it hard to breathe. She pressed her fingers against her temples, wishing she could make herself disappear into nothing. With her mother gone, she had nothing left to live for.

“What’s going on?” a female voice asked.

Xavier turned toward the woman. “Oh, Merla,” he said in relief. “I’m glad you’re here. Jaclyn has had a setback.”

“Of course she has,” Merla sneered. “Probably because tonight wasn’t all about her.”

“Enough!” Xavier commanded. He took in a deep breath, his voice resuming its civility. “Jaclyn is under the assumption that I have a driver named Bud.”

Merla grunted. “That’s a new one.”

“I’ve been trying to tell her that she’s mistaken.” A trace of impatience seeped into his tone. “Darling, let’s go back inside. I’ll call Doctor Stanton. He may need to increase your meds.” He spoke as though he were talking to a child who was slow to understand.

“My mother’s dead?” Jaclyn’s mind refused to accept the words. “How could she be dead? I just spoke to her a few days ago … right before she went on her cruise.” This was a nightmare. She’d entered a world where up was down and down was up. Granted, she’d experienced lapses in memory, but this was insane. 

“She went on the cruise a couple of days before you went into the hospital,” Xavier said gently. “In fact, she was on the cruise when she had the heart attack.”

Xavier stepped forward and caught hold of Jaclyn’s arm. She made a feeble effort to pull away, but he gathered her in his arms.

“My mother’s dead?” she whimpered, searching his face.

“I’m afraid so,” he said sorrowfully. “I’m so sorry.” His voice grew throaty with emotion. “Darling, don’t ever try to leave me again. You know how much I love you. Remember what I told you on our wedding day? I’ll always take care of you. Always,” he said fiercely.

All hope of escape dissipated into the humid air as Jaclyn nodded numbly and allowed Xavier to lead her back to the house.

There’s only one thing standing in the way of Effie Romeo’s success as an interior designer at the famed Oliver Hotel—Talon Chasing, the manager.

Not only is Talon dangerously handsome with his crooked smile and adorable dimple, but he also happens to be the oldest son of one of the wealthiest families on the East Coast. The more Effie tries to evade Talon, the harder he pursues her.

Effie is reluctant to get involved with Talon because of their work relationship and also because of the whispers of suspicion surrounding his ex-wife’s disappearance. The closer Effie gets to Talon, the more she starts to question his innocence.

A series of strange occurrences at the hotel make Effie fear that she might be the next to disappear.

As Ian struggles to come to terms with his heartache and anger over Lina’s betrayal and then disappearance, he meets newcomer Sadie Thomas, a feisty blonde who sweeps into town like a fresh breeze. Charming and fun to be around, Sadie has a way with the customers at the local seafood house where she works as a server.

However, Sadie seems awfully interested in the disappearance of Brent Allen, Ian’s former deputy. Ian begins to wonder what secrets Sadie is hiding beneath her keen wit and easy smile.

As he sets out to learn more about this fascinating woman who’s quickly claiming his heart, Ian finds himself drawn into a web of deception that could not only destroy him, but also rock the foundation of Honeysuckle Island and all that he holds dear.

Welcome to Honeysuckle Island … where secrets abound and love and hope work together to find a place where the heart can belong.


Often, the secrets we hold will be the ones that either make or break us …

Single mom Treasure Montgomery has worked hard to rebuild her life after the loss of her husband. Reconnecting with Greer Nash, her first love, was not something she counted on. Neither did she count on going back home to Honeysuckle Island and facing all the demons that have plagued her for a lifetime. Can she summon the courage to face break free from the boundaries of her fear and open her heart to the man who knows her best, or will the secrets of the past consume her?
