Distrust by Lisa Jackson

Distrust by Lisa JacksonEnter for your chance to win a copy of DISTRUST by Lisa Jackson!

Seventy-five plus novels into my career, I'm so happy that I get to keep weaving stories for you. These days, my novels often veer down darker paths. But even in my early books, there were traces of the themes and subjects I find most fascinating—revenge, obsession, and deception . . .

The two novels collected here, with a fabulous new title, Distrust, share a common thread of unseen threats. In Renegade Son, single mother Danielle Summers is convinced her ranch is slowly being sabotaged. Newcomer Chase McEnroe insists she should trust him. But Dani's suspicion that Chase is in league with her enemy is complicated by a secret from his past.

There's nothing secretive about the hostility between two of Oregon's leading lumber families in Midnight Sun. The feud has been long, ruthless, and bloody, and Ashley Stephens and Trevor Daniels are still reeling from the damage it's caused. Now, eight years after their relationship ended, Trevor discovers that not only is his bid for a senate seat in jeopardy, but his life may be too. And the future of both may lie with Ashley . . .

Filled with intrigue, I believe you will enjoy reading the novels in Distrust as much as I have enjoyed revisiting them!

When nuclear war transforms America from a land of luxury to a nearly uninhabitable wasteland, one woman--congresswoman Victoria Emerson--becomes a beacon of guidance to desperate citizens...

Victoria Emerson is a congressional member of the U. S. House of Representatives for the state of West Virginia. Her aspirations have always been to help her community and to avoid the ambitious power plays of her peers in Washington, D.C. Then Major Joseph McCrea appears on her doorstep and uses the code phrase Crimson Phoenix, meaning this is not a drill. The United States is on the verge of nuclear war.

The land is nearly uninhabitable. Electronics have been rendered useless. Food is scarce. Millions of scared and ailing people await aid from a government that is unable to regroup, much less organize a rescue from the chaos.

Victoria devotes herself to reestablishing order--only to encounter the harsh realities required of a leader dealing with desperate people...

The Beltway Beast by Munir Moon

The Beltway Beast by Munir MoonThe Beltway Beast is about how the two tribes of Washington, Democrats and Republicans, are stealing from our children and destroying the middle class. They are taxing working income at a higher rate than non-working income, one of the main factors that is contributing to inequality. Both parties have monopolized the elections. Americans do not have a choice to elect the best leaders in the country except the ones offered by both parties. Even though the book was written in 2014, it is more relevant now than before.

The U.S. seems to be run by non-elected leaders. The Federal Reserve keeps on printing money to keep the economy going, elections are decided by the courts instead of people, and the country is governed by executive orders. Congresspersons, Senators, and the President are busy spending time on keeping their jobs rather than DOING their jobs. In the meantime, 3,000 Americans are dying everyday due to the coronavirus pandemic, yet nobody wants to take the responsibility.

The coronavirus pandemic has resulted in over 300,000 American deaths in 2020. However, President Trump graded his response to Corona Virus as A+. Moreover, President Trump and Vice President Pence both have been claiming that they have saved millions of American lives. Only in Washington where the deaths of 300,000 Americans is considered an A+ performance while claiming millions of American lives were saved. This twisted logic is what this book is all about.
