Objective:Freedom: Part One of the Series Secession by James Huber

Objective:Freedom reflects the current times and the state of the Government this story looks at the actions of the internal workings of five states that cannot support the union. The President of the United States tries to preserve the economic might of the U.S., but merely makes matters worse with his activities. Five Southwestern states, influenced by an ultra-conservative governor of Texas decides that they can no longer sustain the welfare giveaways and the wasteful foreign aid. The five states form their own country and the U.S. is powerless to do something about it. Governor Kyle Harris, of Texas, leads the other governors to restore a sense of orderliness. The Texas Rangers are nationalized. The President of the U.S. bows out under pressure and an Army General then steps in to take his place. The General is assisted by the Ambassador from England. The lady Ambassador, with her extensive background, tries to soothe the bitterness between the countries. She tries for an alliance and ends up in one with the General. In the meantime, Iranian forces are seeking to break up the new government with assassination attempts, and corrupting government officials with drugs and internal relations. The narrative demonstrates how things could go out of control and what it may need to bring them back into control before the U.S. is lost to both inner and external strengths.. Draconian corrections were immediately enacted, with virtual elimination of welfare programs. Meanwhile, back in Washington the status quo reacted with great hubris, pomp and bluster, but without consensus or much resolve.This book was one that will draw you in, and you will not want to stop reading until you reach the end. I suspect people of all political stripes will find much to enjoy in this tale.The action stretches from Texas to D.C. to the deserts of Iraq and Southern California.

Scarlet Crosses: The Truth Lies Within by J. Beckham Steele

Megan Callahan is a hard case. She relishes in her success as New Orleans’ top criminal attorney and distances herself from questions of morality. Those lines were brutally breached in her past; now they have all but disappeared. But from behind a cast-iron persona, she struggles through loneliness, silently fighting her demons, while pursuing love in unconventional ways. She keeps her secrets to herself, walls up and untouchable, her personal life remains a contentious mystery.Detective Albert Harris has seen more than his share of crime over his distinguished career with the NOPD. But four years ago, injustice became personal. Harris blames the system, he blames attorneys, but mostly he blames himself. Still, he marshals on, searching for answers and accepting no compromises, particularly when it comes to raising his grandchild, Kyle. Harris’ Christian ideals have crashed against his own walls and separated him from Kyle, whose feminine behaviors Harris can no longer discipline away. Harris’ probing has stopped, frozen in the fear of what he may discover.However, when Megan’s aggressive courtroom tactics send her across Harris’ justice line, she becomes first an enemy, and then his responsibility. Her quest for true love leads to a bloody betrayal that will shake both Megan and Harris’ polarized worlds. The line between personal and professional lives blurs as Megan faces demons she thought she had banished and Harris confronts fears he never knew he had. The truth he seeks, and the truth that seeks him, is buried deep within her wounded heart. With Megan trapped in a whirlpool of fear, compassion trumps bitterness as Harris becomes a lifeline of hope. Their relationship carries the keys to transformation, and with emotions spilling over the boundaries, Harris’ greatest challenge is revealed. It’s the most important case of his life—Kyle and Harris’ own conflicted heart.

She and a film crew are preparing a documentary to mark the occasion. As she and the filmmakers interview the staff and residents, we are confronted with how badly the park has deteriorated and how difficult life has become for the last GLBT people in the United States.
