Breaking news!!! The paperback for False Trust by Steve Shipley is live early. Kind of an oopsie, kind of a good thing.

The paperback for False Trust is live even though the release date isn’t till August 9th, 2022. The eBook is up for preorder on Amazon, but Amazon doesn’t allow preorders for paperbacks and hard covers so, oops! The paperback is live early. The good news is people can buy it early, and also ARC readers can leave reviews.

It’s also on Goodreads too. Finally!!

Here’s a bit about the book and links.

The book will be in Kindle Unlimited when the eBook is released so if you’ve got a subscription, you can read it that way too, and available everywhere on Amazon for the paperback and hard cover versions. I don’t think the hard cover version is available yet though but should be in a few days. It’s going through the approval process via Amazon at the moment. Here are a few links. These are universal links so they will take you to your Amazon store for your country.

“𝙏𝙤𝙣𝙞𝙜𝙝𝙩 𝙞𝙨 𝙖𝙗𝙤𝙪𝙩 𝙛𝙞𝙣𝙖𝙡𝙡𝙮 𝙝𝙖𝙫𝙞𝙣𝙜 𝙨𝙤𝙢𝙚 𝙙𝙖𝙢𝙣 𝙛𝙪𝙣!”

 

That’s what Vanessa Paige thought on her way out the door after an argument with her fifteen-year-old niece, Simone.

 

Vanessa took her niece in a few months ago after the sudden death of her half-sister, Monique. The transition from single life to parental guardian is beyond difficult. They share a small apartment above the bookstore she co-owns with her best friend, Whitney Brown, and butt heads and bump into each other daily.

 

Vanessa has been looking forward to the Hope Ridge High Twenty Year Class Reunion for weeks, mainly because her best friend’s older brother, Will Brown, is picking her up.

The night of her dreams turns into a nightmare when she returns home and discovers Simone has gone. There’s not a trace of her left in the apartment. It’s as if she vanished into thin air.

While the good folks of Hope Ridge come together to search for Simone, Vanessa is distraught. Simone’s disappearance leaves her with more questions than answers. Someone is lying. Someone knows where Simone is, and what happened the night of the reunion. Someone has committed the ultimate deception.

My name is Liam Doughty and I’m a hit man.
All I wanted was to get what I was owed. I carried out the hit as I was hired to do by Irish Mob boss, Vernon O’Keenan. It’s not my fault they found out too late that they had the wrong man. All I wanted was my money. I thought I could kidnap the Mafia Princess Brianna O’Keenan and get the ransom money. What I got was so much more!
Ruthless, feisty, and incredibly sexy, she’s far from the timid daddy’s girl I was expecting. Bree has her own agenda. She wants to dominate in a world ruled by men. I have no doubt she can do it, but she will need my help. Her family rules state only males can run the business. So, Bree proposes we get married. She gets to rule, and I get more money than I ever dreamed of.
Two dark, evil worlds collide when we agree to our black wedding. We will fight each others enemies and come out on top. But what happens if we develop real feelings and we realise our wedding wasn’t all that black?

About the Author

I write various sub-genres of romance and this book is now published under my steamy romance collection as Susan R. Horsnell.

Over the next months, all steamy books will be rewritten, re-edited, and given new titles and covers.

They will be moved and showcased on a separate FB page, and page on my website.

My LGBTQ+ will be found under the name Olivia Turner and I plan to extend that over the next few months also.

Sweet Romance will remain under my original name.

As some books are with series contracts, covers will be unable to be changed but I will move them under the relevant sub-genre.

Thank you for continuing to read my stories and I look forward to bringing you many more in the future.

Tumultuous Time to Tulips

By AUBREY ELLE

Genre: Cozy Mystery | Crime Fiction & Mysteries

Hosted by DS Promotions

BLURB

Spring is just around the corner, and Madis is back with more business than she might be able to handle. But she’s hired a couple of new faces to add to her small crew, and it seems like it’ll be a productive start to the season of landscaping. Properly staffed and rested after the winter break, it should be all systems go.

Not quite. Before her employees can really get busy, Madis encounters a dead man lying in a bed of ivy and tulip sprouts. Her entire crew is questioned since they’ve visited the scene, but they’re not the only ones under suspicion. The victim had enemies aplenty, from an angry former lover, a nosy neighbor, and a competitive rival.

While there’s no such thing as bad publicity, finding a corpse at a jobsite isn’t ideal. Can she figure out who the killer is before things get muddier?
