Thunderstruck Book Description :

'A big, bold approach to the writing of narrative non-fiction . . . it shows how tiny lives may occasionally become caught up in the wonders of the age' GUARDIAN In 1910, Edwardian England was scandalized by a murder. Mild-mannered American Hawley Crippen had killed his wife, buried her remains in the cellar of their North London home and then gone on the run with his young mistress, his secretary Ethel Le Neve. A Scotland Yard inspector, already famous for his part in the Ripper investigation, discovered the murder and launched an international hunt for Crippen that climaxed in a trans-Atlantic chase between two ocean liners. The chase itself was novel, but what captured the imagination was the role played by a new and little understood technology: the wireless. Thanks to its inventor Marconi's obsessive fight to perfect his machine, the world was able to learn of events occurring in the middle of the Atlantic as they unfolded - something previously unthinkable. It was the Crippen case that helped convince the world of the potential of Marconi's miracle technology, so accelerating the revolution that eventually produced the modern means of communication we take for granted today . . .

The lone cowboy… Damon Harrison never gets too involved. A cowboy at heart, Damon has turned his commitment phobia into a living—flipping houses. The only exceptions to that rule? His foster family at Thunder Mountain Ranch. And now those "exceptions" have talked Damon into working on a new project with a carpenter named Phil… Only, "Phil" is a nickname for Philomena Turner. She has a wicked way with carpentry and an even wickeder way of turning Damon's head. And the chemistry is like a lightning bolt of lust. But Phil wants a family and a home, and no hotshot cowboy—even a tantalizingly sexy one—will change that. All she can steal are a few nights of sizzling passion before she has to set this lone cowboy free…

Thunderstruck Book Description :

Set in now a day time, Thunderstruck is a unique look at what would happen if 41 of the best military athletes came together as one team in the college football. It's a ficticious look at that and much more. It's about our gallant military, both the past and the present. It's about college football from the prospective of the Junior Collegiate level. It's about small town America. It's also about love, and passion, and a true sincere look at relationships in the 21st century. And even though the bulk of the story is fictitious, there are some true facts and events laced in. Including several of the characters who are living, breathing real people; maybe one of them is even you!

Stealing Thunder Book Description :

Ten years after escaping from Cretacea, Jordan and Jason are forced to return there as the hostages of a militant group of Native Americans. There, they discover that the United States government has turned the subterranean prehistoric world into its own private laboratory. When Jason and one of the Sioux braves become infected with Organism Alpha, the group must reveal its presence in hopes that the researchers have a cure for this lethal disease. Fortunately, they are correct. Inside the huge complex which has been constructed next to Lava Lake, they begin to learn the scope of the military's agenda. They are only told part of the whole story though, the part that's ingenious and acceptable. The engineers have concluded that Jason's father, Nathan, was correct and Cretacea is unstable. They are involved in an effort to rescue the many endangered species which live there. There is, however, one species for which there is no place on the face of the Earth from which mankind would be safe; the Chill, the giant arachnid predecessors to the subphylum Chelicerata. Their plan is to transplant them to Europa, a moon of the planet Jupiter. It has previously been determined that a liquid sea exists beneath its frozen surface. The scientists intend to create an ecosystem like the one in Cretacea around the hydrothermal vents which have been discovered at the bottom of the alien ocean. In order to be sure that the Chill can survive in this extremely hostile environment, they have experimented with the Chill using gene-splicing. They've taken the most dangerous predator ever to exist on Earth and attempted to improve it. Unfortunately, by using genetic material from a highly classified source, they've more than succeeded.
