Silent Partner is a paranormal mystery, a police procedure novel with a female detective that will remind you of Harry Bosch, a ghost story that suggests what lies beyond death, and a comic look at a tabloid where the “truth” is whatever sells.

Detective “Frankie” Ryan tracks a sadistic killer while the press attacks her as a feminist vigilante who takes the law into her own hands. The only one who can help her is a tabloid reporter who can’t decide if he’s a psychic who sees ghosts or just someone going insane. As they search for the killer in a sunny seacoast city’s seamy S&M underside, they begin to question everything they know about sexual identity. How can they find the killer before he strikes again when he defies description? Silent Partner is a paranormal mystery, a police procedure novel with a female detective that will remind you of Harry Bosch, a ghost story that suggests what lies beyond death, and a comic look at a tabloid where the truth is whatever sells.

Enjoy an excerpt:

Frankie glared at Landry. His neck turned red, but he didn’t say anything.

“How could I live without her? I was addicted to her. Once you had her in your system, you never wanted her to leave. When I was away from her, I thought of her constantly. It wasn’t just the sex. She was the smartest, wittiest woman I’ve ever known. She was the most interesting and exciting woman I’ve ever met. She was also the most manipulative woman I’ve ever met. I hated myself for not throwing her out, but I just couldn’t. Love is a horrible thing, and not the wonderful things poets say.”

“Did she leave a note?” Frankie was trying to develop a timeline.

EXCERPT:

He held out his free hand and I reached for it without thinking. Taking the hand of this stranger seemed like the most natural thing in the world.

Our fingers touched and my skin came alive. I felt a surge of electricity as some sort of energy shot from his hand into mine, running through my whole body and back to his like an endless circuit. I couldn’t stifle the gasp that broke through my lips. I stared at him, my vision narrowing until his face and eyes and smile were the only things I could see.

The energy between us exploded outward like a wave into the crowd, through the people and everything around me stopped. The music ended like a switch had been flipped, the people froze mid-step and even the air around me seemed to stop moving.

AUTHOR Interview:

It is my pleasure to welcome Rose Shababy, author of The Blue Effect, to Room With Books.

Please tell me about The Blue Effect and what inspired you to write it?

The Blue Effect started with a dream. It reminded me a little of a book I read as a teenager called Harry and Hortense at Hormone High by Paul Zindel about a boy who believes he’s Icarus. Which got me to wondering what if there was a boy who believed he was a superhero and no one else believed it? And what if it turned out that he really did have powers? Of course, The Blue Effect is nothing like that original idea, but that was the genesis of it. It seemed like a natural fit for me because I’ve always loved science fiction, superheroes, and the idea of what could be. I’ve enjoyed creating the world in The Blue Effect more than anything else I’ve written.

When you start writing a new novel, do you outline the story or do your characters dictate what will happen?

Am I a plotter or pantser, right? Well, I think I’m a little of both. I usually start with a central idea, a theme with some sort of general direction. I know I want to get from point A to point B, but sometimes the way I get there changes as I write. For instance, in The Blue Effect, Blue Brennan, the main character, ends up in a romantic relationship with someone other than who I’d intended in the beginning. As I wrote the story, I realized she was attracted to someone else and I ended up creating a whole new subplot that wasn’t part of my original outline.

Do you ever have arguments with your characters and who usually wins?

This question made me laugh. I’ve heard tales of other authors “arguing” with their characters but this isn’t something that happens to me. Rather, when I try to push my stories in a particular direction that’s unnatural for the characters, I find myself stymied. It’s usually pretty obvious there’s something wrong with the story and I have an awful time continuing until I resolve the issue. I’m happy to say that there weren’t many issues with The Blue Effect. The entire story is written from Blue’s perspective and she was so real she kind of wrote her own story.

What is something about you your readers would be surprised to know?

I’m super OCD and all this social media stuff kicks it into overdrive. Trying to get involved with people I don’t know, networking, talking to folks I don’t know in “real life,” it all scares the sh** out of me. I don’t know what I’m doing, I’m always afraid I’ll say the wrong thing, I’m afraid people won’t like me or my perspective. Or they won’t want to read anything I write. I mean, why would they? Who am I? Why should they care about anything I have to say? I’m just a girl with a dream. That said, I’m too OCD to give up on that dream, so I’ll just keep plugging away despite all the scary social media outlets and interviews and new people. I don’t really have a choice since I’m pretty sure this is what I was born to do. At least, I hope so!

If you could write with any other author who would it be any why?

Oh gosh!!! What a great question! I think I would pick Stephen King or JK Rowling. I’d love to be privy to the creative process of either writer, learn how they plot and plan, organize their thoughts, research. Stephen King is just so out there, and I get the feeling he’d be hilarious. JK Rowling wrote seven books with a central plot and created one of the most amazing worlds! I’d love to see how she kept so organized and managed to keep abreast of it all.

When you were little what did you dream of becoming when you grew up?

I always wanted to be a writer. I was very shy growing up and a little precocious. I was reading at a very young age, in fact, I can’t remember ever NOT being able to read and I can remember being 3 and 4. Shy and precocious plus being an only child meant I spent a lot of time inside my books. I remember the sad love of The Giving Tree by Shel Silverstein, the sweet friendship of Frog and Toad by Arnold Lobel, the wonder of James and the Giant Peach by Roald Dahl. I think I’ve always been drawn to storytelling and the idea that I could make people, strangers, feel love or anger or sadness or anything at all has always appealed. To touch the hearts of others or inspire them seems like the ultimate profession.

What prompted you to start writing?

As I said before, I’ve always wanted to be a writer. I got a little lost along the path of life, the distractions of work and bills and children altered my course for a while.

A couple things happened that brought me back to the dream. The first was meeting my best friend, Jennifer Malone Wright. Circumstances forced us together, but my gratitude for those circumstances is boundless as they gave me the closest female friend I’ve ever had. As we got to know each other we found we had a lot in common. I think the friendship was cemented when we discovered we both wanted to be writers. That was many years ago and I’ve watched Jennifer work her butt off to achieve her goal. She’s been an amazing inspiration to me.

The second thing was my mother. She was picked up by Llewellyn Worldwide a couple years ago, fulfilling one of her own goals. I was so proud of her and she kept telling me that it was my turn but hopefully I wouldn’t wait as long as she did!

The final thing that brought me back to my dream was simply… me. I realized one day no one was ever going to come to me and say, “Gee, Rose. You’re a real swell gal, how about we pay you to write a book?” I realized the only person holding me back was me and every excuse I gave myself for why I couldn’t do it was just that: an excuse. I got out of my way.

What music inspires your writing?

It kind of depends on what I’m writing! I make mood playlists. I have one for when I’m happy, sad, angry, rebellious etc. I have a couple playlists I made for The Blue Effect that help set the mood. If I had to pick one song on that list that most exemplifies the character of Blue Brennan it would be Not A Pretty Girl by Ani Difranco.

Fun Facts:

What is your favorite breakfast? I like breakfast scrambles. Eggs, hash browns, cheese, bacon all mixed together. Yummmm
What is your favorite color? Purple
What is your favorite movie? I have to pick just one?? I can narrow it down a little… A Patch of Blue, Moulin Rouge!, Dogma, and I think the new version of The Great Gatsby gets a spot on the list.
What is your dream car? One that runs! Lol  Seriously, though, I don’t really care that much about cars. As long as it runs well, gets good gas mileage, has a working air conditioner and heater and a decent stereo, I don’t really care what kind of car it is. I will say that I live in the northwest and we get a bit of snow around here in the winter so Subaru’s are pretty popular.

AUTHOR Bio and Links:

Rose Shababy and her family reside in eastern Washington State. Rose grew up in the Northwest but swears she’s going to move to warmer climates someday. She’s claimed this for over 20 years, however, and has yet to move more than 75 miles away from her mother.

Rose has a deep love of all things Star Trek and yearns to travel the heavens, as well as an intense desire to be bitten by a radioactive spider. Unfortunately she sucks at science and math so she hasn’t been able bring her dreams to life, instead living vicariously through books, comics, television and film. She hopes to someday make a million dollars so she can afford to buy her way to the international space station, but she’d settle for being able to fly around the world and leap tall buildings in a single bound.

Rose also loves to cook and worked for years in a gourmet Italian grocery and deli where she learned to hone her skills. She prepares culinary masterpieces for her family, but fervently wishes the dishes would wash themselves. Especially now that her dishwashers/children are nearly grown and only one still lives at home.

Rose likes to use her free time wisely. For instance, she likes to daydream, will often read for hours until she falls asleep on the couch with an electric blanket and a warm tabby cat curled up on her hip, as well as spending cozy weekend days watching Syfy movies like Sharknado and Mega Piranha with her husband.

If Rose were a cartoon animal, she’d prefer to be a wise old owl or a sleek and sexy jaguar, but in reality she’d probably be a myopic mole with coke-bottle glasses.

Publication Date: November 2014
Genres: Contemporary, Erotica, New Adult, Romance

Synopsis:

It was the day of a special occasion in my life, when my entire future was rewritten and set on a new course.

Or was this always part of destiny that I believed you cannot run from?

My Destiny. Now Ours. Together. Exclusively.

As I watched him at the show I never planned on attending – I was certain of one thing about his velocity:

ONLY GOD is capable of catching him.

The moment we met, there was no looking back on a past life down a darkened and lonely road any longer.

Before him I had never dated anyone. Before him I lead a normal good-girl life.

With him my plus size curves and unique facial features are loved and adored beyond a passionate and lustful extent.

Beside him I became queen to the messiah of a supercar racing universe I defied heaven for.

As fate would have it, regrets collected like old friends ready to relive both our darkest moments.

It’s always darkest before the dawn… but to see the sunrise at the end of the finish line, there are SEVEN words of a pledge barricading the way, that as long as they have air in their lungs is never allowed to be shattered,

  • Oath 
  • Griffin 
  • Blood 
  • Supersonic 
  • Racers 
  • Life 
  • League 


The ultimate sacrifice must be made by him alone.
Which will he choose? Which will he let go of? Which means more?

This is our journey.
This is where our saga of fast cars begin.

**Contemporary, Erotica, New Adult, Romance : Due to strong language and sexual content, this book is not intended for readers under the age of 18.**

About the Author

I’m 27 years old – will be 28 on November 12th. I’m fascinated by fast specialized super cars and am a plus size girl myself.

I’m addicted to ice-cream. This will be made clear in my book as to why. I read a lot. Mostly dark reads. – No my novel is not dark. My characters love each other way too much for that. I’m not your typical girl- I read comic books, have seen all the movies too and play playstation games when I’m not reading or writing or going out with family or friends.

My leading lady was inspired by my role model – who is a plus size supermodel that I’m currently trying to do the photoshoot for the second book cover.

But after the unexpected death of her mother, she is blindsided yet again by a wedding invitation she didn’t see coming. Her father’s upcoming marriage only cements the wall she’s put up around her heart. Because if her father could be such an utter disappointment, why should she even attempt to open up to any man?
Enter Colton Davis.

EXCERPT:
“What are you doing?” I asked breathily, licking my lips and silently begging him to kiss me.

He didn’t answer at first. He looked at me predatorily before leaning down to nibble on my neck. The feeling of his teeth lightly grazing my skin while the threat of someone walking down the hallway and turning the corner made me clench tightly. His fingers gripped my hips and desire washed over me.  His hands caused goosebumps to erupt everywhere he touched.  My body hummed from the electric currant that flowed between us. The anticipation I felt for Colton’s kiss was almost unbearable.

“What are you doing?” I repeated, wrapping my arms around his neck.

Leaning in so that our lips were almost touching, Colton answered sexily, “You.”

AUTHOR BIO:
I am a married event planner, life coach and instructor.  Between my awesome friends and family and my amazing husband, I am constantly surrounded by love.  My goal at all times is to love what I’m doing and enjoy life.  I love shopping and football with equal fervor.  I’m an amateur movie critic (i.e. my husband and I watch and critique a lot of movies for fun). I love to read, but since I’ve been writing, I don’t read as much as I used to. I love music. A good lyric with a good melody can paint a vivid picture and invoke such a range of emotions. I have a soft spot for most mediums of creative, artistic expression. But music is probably my favorite.

Song Chaser – Released July 2014

For more than a year, Tanner West has tried to shake his feelings for his long time best friend, Paisley Bronson. She was the perfect girl to fit the lyrics in all his favorite songs – the girl he had always wanted. When she fell in love with another man before Tanner had the chance to tell her how he felt, he was left with no resolve to find love again. Burying himself in school and easy girls has become his new lifestyle, but when Kellee Brooks shows up at his favorite bar, he begins to think there may be another verse to his song, after all.

Kellee Brooks moved to New York City for one thing: escape. Growing up in a small town where her entire life was planned out for her, she’s desperate to break free and find herself without following the same path as her mom. Kellee thought working at the local dive bar would mean more money for school, but when she meets the smoldering, scarred honey eyes of Tanner West, she finds there’s much more hiding in the smoky building than just a few tips.

With Paisley still haunting Tanner and Kellee vowing to save anyone the trouble of loving her, will the pain and fear keep them apart – or will they find a way to rewrite their song together?

Break free with this heartbreaking story of letting go and letting love in.

Triage by Tara Crescent

A surgeon with secrets. A woman craves to be spanked. When they get together in an examination room – what will happen next?

Rules of the Game by Elaine Raco Chase

“You need an attitude adjustment!” Samantha Logan told Adam Rourke.

She didn’t care that he was rich, she didn’t care that he was handsome, and she didn’t care that her boss was his surrogate father.

She tried to ignore the fact that his deep voice hit her behind the knees and made her feel oddly off balance. And she was sure those heart palpitations were the result of drinking two five-hour energy drinks in less than thirty minutes and definitely not from a pair of broad shoulders, green eyes and a sexy stubble.

Fragmented by Colleen Connally

The first in the Boston’s Crimes of Passion Series! A pulse-pounding thriller! Ms Connally’s first murder mystery delivers!

That is until Kate McDermott crosses his path and screws everything up. Now, nothing is neat and tidy anymore, for Drake is smitten and things are going to get messy…

Cooking Class by Valerie Douglas

With her dream art gallery about to open, she’s in need of some serious stress relief and virile carpenter Zack Dillon is just the man to give it to her.Only Zack doesn’t think they’re a good match. He likes to be in control, always, and Teal’s anything but submissive when she comes on to him.

The Sexperts: The Girl With the Pearl Necklace by Melinda DuChamp

In the future, some people are still prudes…

And the most prudish of all are the righteous defenders of righteousness at the Purity Foundation. When the director sends her own daughter on an undercover mission to eliminate sexual satisfaction from earth, the only thing standing between the human race and complete and total sexual frustration are the good instructors of the Seimann Sex Institute.

Fanny and Peter, along with new instructors Chastity and Milo, have devoted their lives to ensuring everyone can enjoy a healthy, prosperous sex life. But they will have to use every tool and technique in their arsenal if they are to overcome this new threat, because the Purity Foundation isn’t going down…not without a fight.

No sacrifice is too much if the cause is just, and love might the greatest cause of all…

A Voice to Love by Karolyn James

Lead singer Luke Nolan’s sudden success is everything dreams are made of. Going from playing at a local dive bar to touring with mega band Chasing Cross, seemingly overnight, and ultimately saving the headliner’s tour, has the men of Fallen Tuesday absolutely loving the life on the road. In fact, Luke is loving it so much that he has used every excuse to not tell his bandmates about his medical condition that is worsening with each performance.

In a small town just outside Syracuse, New York, Amy Deleranne seeks solitude in the kitchen of Tommy Two’s, her uncle Tom’s restaurant that should have been hers by now. She understands his emotional attachment, but she has poured her life into its survival and has more at stake than anyone knows…

With Luke battling a skyrocketing career and the medically unknown and Amy terrified to look over her shoulder at all times, it is no wonder that sparks fly when they meet. However, can their hearts, and their careers, survive the secrets they’ve been keeping?

Elaine Raco Chase: If you like sassy, laugh out loud, contemporary romances – some more explicit than others – you have found the right author!

Reviewers have called them: “cat & mouse” – “slow burn” – “hot and steamy” – “highly addicting” – “solid characters & lots of humor” – “amazing reads!”

I call them fun! My heroines are NOT: thin, petite, clueless or submissive. They are strong women who aren’t looking for a man – until the right one comes along!

And those men! Tough-guy, alpha males who don’t know what hit them! But do know they want MORE!

Life is full of the unexpected. At times, the only thing you can do is just breathe.
For twenty-four year old Cassandra Anderson, life hasn’t been easy. Haunted daily by her own demons and memories of the past, she suffers from panic attacks and questionable anal-retentiveness. The motto she lives by is “Trust no one. Fear nothing.” 
Bartender Lucas Daniels comes into her life like a whirlwind. Hot enough to melt wax, he is tantalizing, sometimes overbearing, and quite possibly one of her weaknesses. Lucas, having secrets of his own, understands pain all too well.
Only time can tell what the future holds for them. Will Lucas cause Cass to question everything? Will she be drawn to him or will they end in resentment?
