Author Susan Harkna creates a story that combines love, intrigue and danger in her new book “Illusions,” (published by Xlibris). It follows a young man’s dark journey through life after committing a grave and terrible mistake.

“Illusions” follows Sheppard Kane, a young bachelor living in New York City, who has a pretty comfortable lifestyle going on for himself. He has a nice apartment in Manhattan and a good job with a magazine publisher. He has a group of good friends but is saddened by the breakup with his live-in girlfriend. While at his parents’ house for a Christmas party, Shepp is joined by his two brothers and their significant others. His younger brother, Nate, has brought his new girlfriend, Gemma Elliot, who is not only beautiful but also a flirt. What starts out as an innocent encounter on Shepp’s part, Gemma manages to turn into a life-changing one for his family, friends and himself. Trust is shattered, belief systems fail and real danger lurks around them all.

This book shows readers how misguided love could destroy even the closest of families and how the love within the family can pull one through any obstacle.
