ExcerptCHAPTER ONE

California – November 17

Umar Sarouk glanced up at the over-sized wall clock in the sterile fifty-by-fifty-foot control room and exhaled a long steady breath. It was six-thirty in the morning, and his twelve hour shift at Diablo Canyon Nuclear Plant would end in thirty minutes.

After twenty years of marriage, he would not be returning home to his wife and two daughters. There would be no graduations, no weddings to attend, and he wouldn’t be celebrating his forty-seventh birthday next week. Nor would he meet his first grandchild due in three months, born to his eldest daughter, Jewel.

Any apprehension for what he was about to do had disappeared months ago, replaced with deep sorrow for the many things in life he would miss. His children. His wife. His friends.

He leaned back in the chair and looked around the horseshoe-shaped room cluttered with vertical panels, bench boards and control switches used to monitor the nuclear reactor’s coolant pumps, steam generator and pressurizer levels. A lifetime of memories flashed, fast-forwarding through his mind, and he held on to each of them like a life preserver.

He knew the time would come when he would be called upon to carry out a mission and he gladly accepted his fate.

After he was gone, the experts would argue that he had been “radicalized” to an unbending ideology; that specific signs were ignored before he’d reached the final plateau. They call it the “jumping-off point to terror.” But they wouldn’t uncover any of the typical signs.

He had done everything he had been ordered to do to stay off the FBI’s radar, including keeping his thoughts to himself, not once indulging his ideation, beliefs or fears to anyone, not even to his wife. He never lived a life of isolation and never posted messages on social media. More importantly, no one was aware of his link to Al Qaeda. At least, not yet.

For the first time in his life, Umar felt whole—that he was part of something greater.

He wrung his hands together and noticed how his stubby fingers trembled slightly. It was almost time. He stood and faced the clock. His legs shook. He clutched the edge of the desk and held his head high.

Six-forty-nine. The calm before the storm.

For over eight months, he had smuggled all the necessary parts he needed into the facility, hiding pieces in his locker, behind the washroom hand dryer, in his lunch, and even in plastic bags submerged in the toilet tanks. As a nuclear engineer, he had access to restricted areas that were usually off limits to many of the employees. Every free moment he had, he secretly assembled the explosive devices and placed each one where he knew they would have the most impact.   

Six-fifty-five.

Sweat slid down his forehead and dripped onto the bridge of his nose. He swiped the wetness away with the back of his hand and thought about his wife, Afina, grateful for the many wonderful years they’d had together. She was a good woman. A good mother. She’d never forgive him.

Seven o’clock.

Umar’s heart pounded.

The lights flicked off.

The electrical malfunction had originated at the power station a half mile north. He knew this because it was part of the plan to guarantee his mission was a success.

Two minutes later, the plant’s backup diesel generator fired up. The control room lights flickered twice then stayed on. Panic took over, and his breath came out in small bursts of air.

Remember why you’re doing this.

A loud boom directly below him sounded like lightning hitting a tree. He swore the tile floor shifted. The vibration from the explosion ripped up through his feet and tunneled through his body. He grabbed the edge of the desk to steady his balance.

The first bomb was meant to disrupt the backup power supply and the cooling system to the nuclear reactors.

The room went pitch black.

He felt bad for the men and women still in the plant and for the workers who had just arrived for the day shift—people he’d worked with for over a decade. They wouldn’t be returning to their families either. By now the plant’s internal emergency phone lines would be severed, leaving his friends to rely on their cell phones, if they worked at all, to communicate with their loved ones for the last time. Most would suffer thermal and radiation burns and then quickly perish from the lethal dose of radiation.

Tears filled Umar’s eyes at the thought of what would be coming next.

For a split second, survival instinct kicked in, and he wanted to run. But running wouldn’t save him. Nothing would. At least he’d be at peace, knowing his family was safe, vacationing on a Caribbean island far away from California—away from the fallout.

The floor below his feet shimmied then shook violently. The steel control room door blew outward, taking out half of the outer wall. Chunks of cement, wood, metal, wiring and sections of control panels rained down around him.

The shock wave from the second blast catapulted him backwards and slammed him into the bottom of a cabinet next to the row of alarm panels. He felt the bone in his arm crack and shatter on impact.

Dazed and in agony, Umar lumbered to his feet. Dust and choking gray smoke filled the air. He yanked the collar of his shirt up over his mouth and nose, in hopes of shielding his lungs from the thick smoke.

It won’t matter. It will be over soon.

It seemed as if a lifetime had passed before the third bomb rocked the facility.

If the explosion was successful, it would destroy the plant’s main structure, setting off a massive catastrophic fire and taking out the emergency water feeding system used to cool the reactor’s cores. Then, within minutes, one of the reactors would overheat and explode, sending a plume of radiation into the atmosphere, spreading deadly particles hundreds of miles across the United States, depending on the direction of the wind.

High-pitched emergency sirens wailed, alerting anyone within a ten-mile radius that something horrible had happened at the plant. Within minutes, the San Luis Obispo County warning system that extended from Cayucos in the north to Nipomo in the south would begin to howl.

Intense heat melted patches of skin on his face and bare arms, the pain unbearable. Umar’s throat and lungs burned, and he prayed it would be over soon.

He dropped to his knees and wheezed for a breath, scarcely able to whisper his last dying words. “Allahu Akbar.”

Then he slowly raised his head and stared into the eye of the raging fire roaring toward him.

Book Review

It is my pleasure to feature Oblivion: A Jet Series Novella by Kim Cresswell for review on Room With Books.

Oblivion was a real page turner and Ms. Cresswell was able to keep the tension heightened through the entire novella. From the introduction of a terrorist attack through tracking the people responsible, the characters are vivid and dynamic, and from my perspective, entirely believable. I’m only sorry I waited this long to read Oblivion.

I truly enjoy the way Ms. Cresswell couples the characters from her previous novels, REFLECTION and RETRIBUTION, into the back story of Oblivion. I hope she writes more about Hal and Angela and their involvement with Whitney and Blake.

I highly recommend Oblivion: A Jet Series Novella by Kim Cresswell and give it five nuclear cups of Room With Books coffee!

Death of the Spirit Blog Tour @ricktheauthor

 Death of the Spirit

by Rick Chiantaretto

Death of the Spirit *Crossing Death #2*
Genre~Dark Fantasy/Occult
About the Book

I have no idea who I am anymore.

In Los Angeles, I would have given anything to go home to Orenda, my world where magic was alive and nature spoke to me. Now that I’m back I feel out of place, burdened with responsibility. The human part of me misses the simplicity of Earth, the mage part begs for connection with magic, and the demon part? I don’t want to admit that exists.

As the darkness inside me grows, I’ll learn to sacrifice for the greater good, as my people have always done. In order to save my family (both mage and human alike), I must face my nightmare, embrace the demon, and descend into the shadowy world of my enemy—the Hell of the Damned.

Once there, I will have nothing left to fear but myself: Edmund Gavel, human, mage, demon… maybe monster.

Book Review
It is a pleasure to have the opportunity to read and review Death of the Spirit by Rick ChiantarettoDeath of the Spirit is the second book in the Crossing Death Series. I found it most necessary to read book one, Death of the Body, to understand the progression of events through Death of the Spirit.

Mr. Chiantaretto is a master of the dark suspense.

His characters are well developed and the worlds that they inhabit are filled with details that only a master could supply. My attention is sometimes difficult to hold when making my way through several volumes, but with the Crossing Death series, and especially Death of the Spirit I found myself unwilling to put the books down and lost sleep during the days that I was focused on what would happen next!
Mr. Chiantaretto has a fangirl for life and I know that the next volume(s) will be as eloquently penned as his current works are.
I definitely recommend Death of the Spirit by Rick Chiantaretto, and Death of the Body as well, as give five dark and powerful cups of Room With Books coffee.
Don’t wait to pick up a copy. Stop what you are doing and get Death of the Body and Death of the Spirit and you’ll be hooked as well!

About the Book

I grew up in a world of magic. By the time I was ten I understood nature, talked to the trees, and listened to the wind. When the kingdom of men conquered my town, I was murdered by one of my own—the betrayer of my kind. But I didn’t stay dead.

I woke to find myself in a strange new world called Los Angeles. The only keys to the life I remembered were my father’s ring, my unique abilities, and the onslaught of demons that seemed hell-bent on finding me. Now I must find out who I really am, protect my friends, and get back to my beloved hometown of Orenda.

About the Author

I’ve often been accused of having done more in my life than the average person my age but if I were completely honest, I’d have to tell you my secret: I’m really 392. So after all this time, I’m a pretty crappy writer. I have two books published and a bunch half written (when you have eternity, where’s the reason to rush?). I’ve been favorably reviewed by horror greats like Nancy Kilpatrick, and my how-to-write-horror articles have been quoted in scholarly (aka community college freshmen’s) papers. I enjoy the occasional Bloody Mary, although a Bloody Kathy or Susan will suffice.Mostly, I just try to keep a low profile so people don’t figure out who I REALLY am.

Frisk Me
New York’s Finest #1  

By: Lauren Layne

 Released July 28th,2015
Forever Romance

After a photograph of Luc Moretti saving a tourist hits social media, he instantly becomes New York’s most famous and beloved cop. When a major network decides to run a special on the “American Hero,” Luc’s boss gives him no choice but to cooperate in the name of good exposure for the department. Luc doesn’t mind the celebrity status-what he does mind is the gorgeous brunette journalist who’s been assigned to follow his every move. Especially since she also happens to be the same knockout that rejected him rather publicly the week before.

Ava Sims is a woman who gets what she wants. And what she wants is to be CBC’s lead anchor-but to get there, she’ll need to nail the fluff piece on the playboy cop. Luc Moretti is everything Ava knows to stay away from: a stubborn charmer with a hero-complex. But the more Ava gets to know Luc and his oddball family, the more she realizes that beneath the swagger and the blue uniform is a complex man who makes her heart beat too fast. Soon, Ava’s doing the unthinkable, and falling for the best of New York’s finest …

May 23, 1985: the night that changed my life forever.

I approached from the passenger side. She turned and saw me as I walked up to the door. She shot me a look with those beautiful dark eyes of hers. “Jim? What are you doing here?”

I glanced to the driver’s side and saw Tony wasn’t there. “I need you to come with me now.”

“What?”

“Come with me if you want to live.” It was a line from the Terminator movie and it was all I could think of at the time. It seemed to fit the occasion.

“What? What are you talking about?”

“Look. I really don’t have time to explain right now. I need you to come with me and I mean now!” I tried to be as forceful as I could but she looked at me as if I was crazy.

“Look, Jim, I don’t know what you’re doing here, but you need to leave now. Okay?”

I looked into the car and could see all the beer cans and the look on her face. She looked afraid. Was she afraid that night? Did she want to get away from him but couldn’t? Now I knew what I had to do. My whole attitude changed and I was ready for whatever happened at that point, and it’s a good thing because that was exactly when I needed to be ready.

“Hey! What’s up, Jim? What are you doing here?” I could hear Tony’s voice as he approached the car from behind me.

“I came for Sara.” I said, turning my head to see him as he walked up to the car from the other side.

“Is that what you want?” He said to Sara who didn’t respond.

“We’re on our way to buy some pot. If you got money, you can come with us.” Tony always had a friendly demeanor; he never bullied on the surface, but he always had an agenda and I knew what his was tonight.

He walked over to me with his large six-foot-two frame and curly black hair down to his shoulders, and in one swift movement, reality set in. That’s right; this wasn’t a dream. If it were, that gun that he had in his waistband underneath his leather jacket wouldn’t be there.

“And if you don’t have any money you can get the fuck out of here, Jimmy boy.”

“Jim, go home.” Sara shot me a look like she always did when she was mad at me. It was the evil eye with a frown and a stare.

So now was the moment of truth. If I made a move and Tony pulled his gun, this whole thing could go sideways in a hurry. I looked out the corner of my eye and saw a police cruiser pull into the parking lot. It was behind where Tony stood, so he couldn’t see it.

“Here’s what we’re going to do. I’m going to take Sara and we’re going to get out of here.” I said without emotion.

Tony Mason looked me dead in the eye. “I know what you’re thinking, Jimmy boy. You think because that cop just pulled in behind me… That’s right, I saw him… I’m going to let you go, but that’s not going to happen. Instead, what’s going to happen is this. I’m going to pull out this gun and shoot that cop. Then I’m going to shoot you.”

My jaw almost dropped when he said those words and just then, the cop pulled up alongside us in his police cruiser. Sara got out of the car and stood up next to Tony.

“Everybody okay over here?” The cop said leaning out his window. He had a young face, wearing a Newington PD uniform.

“I don’t know, officer. Is everybody okay over here?” Tony said with his back turned to the officer and his hand on his gun that was strategically placed in his waistband underneath his jacket.

“Yeah, we’re good.” I told the officer as I walked closer to Tony and patted him on the back.

“No problems here.” I repeated and looked down at the gun in Tony’s waistband. I thought about making a move at that gun, and he could see it in my eyes as I glanced at his face.

The Venture Capitalist

by LaVie Enrose & L.V. Lewis

eBook Cover - TVC - Final
Tristan’s Point of View Is Here!

Why LaVie and I Had To Write This Story

LaVie EnRose and I teamed up to do this story because she is going solo with Double Switch, and because Fifty Shades of Jungle Fever fans got everything from Keisha’s point of view until Exit Strategy.

Then, of course, some fans were not pleased with the manner in which Tristan was presented in Exit Strategy because his point of view was in third rather than first person. In The Venture Capitalist, fans get to be inside Tristan’s head. They know everything he’s thinking and feeling, and will get that same treatment with The Venture Capitalist Part II which will be Tristan’s POV of Exit Strategy.

LaVie has some of the best ideas and I look forward to collaborating with her again. We are both working on solo projects, and hers are with other publishers, so please be patient. She and I both work full-time jobs and write part-time, but we’re writing as fast as we possibly can!

chapter break - TVC

FYI Jungle Fever Readers: The Venture Capitalist (The Jungle Fever story from Tristan White’s POV, Part I), introduces readers to LaVie EnRose as the writer who will continue the series with Double Switch and In the Paint. LaVie wanted to do something like Grey before delving into the new books. The story narrative is all in Tristen’s head as well as his interactions with Princess Danai, Nathan, and of course Keisha.

The Venture Capitalist II
By LaVie EnRose & LV Lewis

Tristan White thought he was the king of the exit strategy, but Keisha Beale has turned that idea on its head. There is not much time to reflect on the fact that they both have an anxiety disorder before she ends their unorthodox arrangement with two words.

Dominant to his core, Tristan launches one final, desperate appeal to make her stay, but to no avail. Nothing he says or does can dissuade her. Is it the resurfacing of her anxiety episodes, or the feelings she’s developed that he can’t return that makes her hell-bent on leaving him?

Separation brings about its own set of difficulties. His need for control doesn’t allow him to step aside and let his security team handle the credible threat that develops from her association with him. Tristan jumps in with both feet—a move that together with his secrets could prove detrimental to a lasting, loving relationship.

Sometimes your first love is also your last.

Andrew Callaway doesn’t do love — not since Amanda broke his heart and left him in a cloud of dust. Devoting himself to the family ranch, he’s determined to be the man his dad would be proud of, minus the one-night stands and stream of mistakes. Five years after watching her drive away, his first love is back. Andrew finds himself wanting more than meaningless easy conquests, a lot more.

Following her dream of becoming a chef, Amanda Watkins left Montana with a beat-up pickup truck and a broken heart. Five years after watching Andrew fade away in her rear-view mirror, she’s back and is dead set on avoiding the man she still dreams about. When she’s hired to cater for a Callaway celebration, sparks fly and old emotions run hot. If she thought the boy she knew was dangerous, she’s about to find out that the man he became is lethal. 

Blame is a dangerous game to play, but forgiveness takes courage that may just prove too difficult to reach.
Kaithlin Shepherd was born and raised in Canada where she learned to figure skate and crafted a love affair with coffee. Growing up in a household filled by strong-headed women, she learned early on that life is what you make it. You’ve probably never met a bigger country music fan and in the words of Brooks and Dunn, she’s a die-hard ‘George Strait junkie.’ Constructing a world away from her real life, Kaithlin loves the feeling of creating a universe where her fans can forget about everything in their life. She loves writing about hot alphas and doesn’t shy away from turning up the heat with scorching hot sex scenes.

Cold. All I can feel is a deep chill blanketing my body. My eyes open to complete darkness as a voice calls to me. Its muffled tones send shivers down my spine with every garbled word. A sense of familiarity floats around me as its words become clearer.

“Run, Dani,” it pleas from beyond the black veil shrouding the room. “Escape while you can,” it continues. Panic courses through my veins. Where in the hell am I? Why can’t I see anything? The pleas go unanswered as my voice fails to render sound.

“Help!” I scream internally, “Please, fucking help me!”

The voice’s call fades with each word. “You need to get the hell out of here, Dani. You need to move. Find a wall and escape,” I coach to myself. A cold chill of air sweeps into the darkness encompassing me as I try to feel the place around me. My fingers plunge into a dense, sticky liquid as I crawl forward causing my body to slide with each movement. A hard surface is finally inching its way under my fingers.

Crawling upwards, I splay my hands against the cool wall. “You’re on your feet, Dani. The hardest part is over now. Time to find a door or a light switch, something to get us out of here,” my internal coach continues.

Keeping close to the wall, I finally find a switch. Flicking it upwards, the light shines brilliantly. As my eyes adjust to the light, my hands come into my vision. A scream barrels out of my throat when I see the sticky, red blood covering my hands and clothes. My heart races as I frantically wipe the blood away. Blood begins to pool at my feet, inching toward me. Rushing away from the blood, I fall backward into a solid, but warm obstacle. Before I can turn around, hands grasp my arms as a person’s hot breath trails down my neck.

“Hello, Dani,” a different voice whispers in my ear. “Welcome to Hell. You’re mine now,” the voice crackles as my body is pulled into black oblivion. 

 

 
 
Avelyn Paige is a born and raised Indiana girl. She may be a Hoosier by birth, but she’s a Boilermaker by choice! Avelyn lives in rural Indiana with her pastor husband, 2 spoiled cats, and one very odd looking dog. She’s an oncology research scientist by day and a writer and book review blogger by night. She enjoys reading anything she can get her hands on, baking, and spending time with her friends and family. 

Never intending to ever write her own book, the idea behind the Damaged series came to her on a drive to work early one morning thinking about her father who’d recently passed away. His strength during his cancer and rare blood disease battle inspired Avelyn to do something she’s never thought about before. She’s excited to see where this wild ride takes her.

Sometimes to move forward you need to seek a new beginning.
As a psychic, Jess Abrams knew pack life would fall into a downward spiral if she stayed after a drunken mistake. Her alpha was never going to sell her the bar she’d managed for years, and sleeping with him only ensured he would treat her worse. Taking life by the reins, she decides on a fresh start.
Edenton’s Alpha is more than happy to sell the vacant bar to the new werewolf. Years ago Slater lost his first mate. Now he avoids dating his wolves to prevent possible heartache.
Their attraction is unexpected and the last thing either wants. Resisting their obvious connection may prove impossible.

When you’re dead, living is easy. When you’re playing dead, it’s a lot more complicated.

Link and Grace survive the initial onslaught. But by who? And why?

A jealous ex-husband doesn’t have this kind of power. Of course, obsession has very strange bedfellows. And Link’s a ghost. Aren’t ghosts supposed to already be dead?

Destiny brought them together. Fate joined their hands. Love would be their ultimate weapon … if the world played fair. But it doesn’t. Not even close. So where do they go, where do they hide, how do they stay together when there are hidden dangers around every corner?

button About the author

Leslie Johnson

Leslie is a California native but recently moved to Arizona after a stint in Arkansas. She enjoys travel and being with friends.

She is an avid reader of many genres, but prefers romances with travel or thriller themes. She loves writing about strong women and strong men because the world needs both!

Elle Dawson

Sharing ones thoughts on paper is an intimate experience, and should not be taken lightly. Some days I fear this process, as my mind can be a scary place to dwell. Other days I realize I’m not alone in this journey, and although the very action of expelling ones deepest thoughts onto paper is intensely personal, it is deeply healing. Funny how that works.

I will continue to write as Elle Dawson, and be a mom, sister, daughter and friend in my real life. I’ll enjoy the beauty of Tennessee and read books that take me away or speed up my heart. When I’m not writing them.
