On May 12, 1924, a park forest ranger notices rocks out of place near the mouth of the Kilauea Volcano. On Sunday, May 18, the ground splits open, rocks, fire, and ash fill the sky, and those who chose not to evacuate are in a fight for their lives.

LUCY DILLOW, daughter of the local pastor enjoys her days of ministering to Hawaii’s friendly people and teaching their young in a simple one-room schoolhouse. When the order arrives to evacuate because of the uncertainty of the volcano, she decides to stay behind with her family in case they are needed, and to keep a journal of the volcano’s activity. She doesn’t expect to butt heads with a handsome rancher over the danger involved.

JACK GARRISON is ranching land passed down from generation to generation. When the volcano threatens to blow, he refuses to leave his cattle to perish. Instead, he works to save them, herding them as far away from the volcano as possible. Once his livelihood is safe, he turns to helping those who need him; namely the beautiful daughter of a missionary who challenges everything he believes in.

This unlikely couple join forces as part of a team to warn the villagers of impending danger, and find themselves falling in love despite the odds against them. Can they survive nature’s fury and each other’s differences in order to forge a future together?

Growing up poor in the slums of Chicago taught me that guys like me don’t get any lucky breaks. No second chances. And I never wanted any. Until I saw the woman I love gunned down in the street like an animal.

I’m an FBI special agent and so is she. At least she used to be but I stole that away from her. Me. She’s better than me. Stronger. And seeing her weaken shatters my hardened heart into a million tiny pieces. Lacy Cobb stole my breath the first time I saw her waltzing in to new agent training rocking a pencil skirt and killer heels. She’s a buck twenty of badass Super Girl. And I’ll do anything to get the old Lacy back.

She blames me for the shooting that left her half the woman she used to be. And I deserve it. It was my fault. I thought I was tough enough to bring down the Chicago mob by going undercover and infiltrating their organization. I should have paid the price but they took her down instead knowing how much it would hurt me. I don’t blame her for hating me. But the more she pushes me away the more my body aches for her.

I can’t eat. I can’t sleep. I need her.

I need to taste her, and I need to possess her body and soul. I’m going to make her moan and scream my name in passion instead of anger. Then, I’m going to make her my wife whether she likes it or not. The problem? We have a past that makes for a dangerous future. The bad guys are back for their pound of flesh. Now, I’m going to protect her.

Whatever it takes.

Illusions abound. Connie’s illusion is a better life with someone else. Hinkley’s illusion is a return to earlier times. Sossek’s illusion is money without work. And Giuseppe Zangara’s illusion is to “fix the world” by killing FDR.

Illusions of Magic is the story of a victim of vaudeville’s demise and the Great Depression. Magician Nick Zetner embarks on a risky quest to regain his life. Along the way, a love he thought he’d forever lost is rekindled. Is this a promise of magic, or is it another illusion?

The question plays during nineteen days of political upheaval, the last nineteen days of Chicago Mayor Anton Cermak’s life. Mayor Cermak was wounded by a bullet intended for Franklin D. Roosevelt during the little-known, but true-life assassination attempt on the president-elect, Feb. 15, 1933.

In modern style, this novel ranges through historic Chicago, its comedy and magic, exposing the intrigues and foibles of the City’s famous and infamous, while the engrossing tale of Nick Zetner’s dreams, adversity and insight unfolds.
