The Lightstream Conspiracy
by Larry LaVoie

Veteran CIA Agent, Trevor Lloyd, is furious when he is called in from the field to a desk job at CIA Headquarters in Langley and he lets Margaret Ames, his new boss, know it.

Ames has a point to prove as the first female head of the CIA and isn’t taking any guff from Lloyd and assigns him to a routine investigation with FBI Agent Terri Summers, who has yet to get her feet wet. It leads them to NASA and an international conspiracy to bring the United States into a nuclear war with Russia.

In their effort to unravel the conspiracy, Lloyd and Summers discover an obscure company in California and a secret weapon that an enemy desperately wants; a weapon that the U.S. Congress has defunded, but secretly, the Ballistic Missile Defense Organization, the U.S. Space Command, and the U.S. Air Force, all part of the Strategic Defense Initiative have continued to fund. The result of that program is the most destructive weapon the world has ever known...The Light Stream Laser.

It is late 1999 and the Light Stream computers have been compromised. Lloyd and Summers are on a run for their lives from an enemy that may be within their own organizations and they need to survive long enough to save the world from a devastating nuclear war.

A Second Chance in Paradise
by
Tom Winton

DescriptionLong Island salesman Sonny Raines has had it. He’s sick and tired of living in a world where wrong always wins over right. Then, on his thirty-ninth birthday, when he loses his job and comes home to the most devastating shock of his life, that’s it. He’s dropping out.

With nothing left to lose, and little in his pocket, Sonny chucks it all and drives his aging van fifteen-hundred miles to the lower reaches of the Florida Keys. All he wants is to get over his recent losses and simplify his hectic life, and that’s exactly what he thinks he’s doing when he settles on a paradisiacal speck of an island known as Wrecker’s Key. While surrounded by the warm aquamarine waters of two tropical oceans, he not only falls in love with the key but also establishes a close bond with the free-spirited locals who call it home.

But all isn’t blue skies, swaying palms, and coconut oil on Wrecker’s Key. There’s trouble wafting in the warm breezes that caress the island. Although Sonny certainly isn’t looking for romance, he finds himself falling for his next door neighbor. Ex-model Julie Albright just may be the kindest, most beautiful woman to ever grace his eyes, but there’s a snag. She has a small physical flaw that, no matter how hard he tries, Sonny can’t overlook. And his feelings are no secret to Julie. She can read them, and they weigh as heavy on her heart as they do on his. Then things get even worse. One night, under the cover of darkness, danger drifts up the deep, silent currents from the lower keys—serious danger—life and death danger. And Sonny Raines finds himself right in the middle of it.

My Imagination Dreams
by
Regina Puckett

DescriptionThat Girl
Every now and then I flash back to a simpler time
Where pain was a stumped toe from a failed climb
Heartbreak was losing your best doll or toy train
Joy came from running and dancing out in the rain
Your best friend sat with you in the corner when caught
True love came from the heart and couldn't be bought
But then I open my eyes and look around at this world
I think somewhere along the way I may have lost that girl
