It was the fall before the fall.The Roman Revolution describes the little known “crisis of the third century”. Long before the collapse of the Roman Empire in the fifth century, in the years between AD 235-275, barbarian invasions, civil war and plague devastated ancient Rome. Out of this ordeal, a revolutionary new order arose. Nick Holmes challenges conventional thinking, suggesting that the classical Roman Empire ‘fell’ as early as the third century when it was replaced by a radical new Christian Roman Empire, ruled from Constantinople. He presents the near collapse of the Roman Empire in the third century as a world-changing event. It was the first step in the history of the Fall of the Roman Empire and the beginning of the modern world.

Calliope: I believe in love. Or I did until my husband died. Now, I believe in surviving this world without him. I have a plan mapped out for the rest of my life, and it doesn’t involve a man. I’ve been down that road, and I’m not willing to risk my heart again. Not even for the devastatingly handsome and charming Dr. Keegan Russo, who also happens to be one hell of a kisser. My head has plans, but what happens when my heart can’t say no?
Keegan: Hot as hell sex with no strings attached. That’s my credo. It works, too, until she walks into my office. Calliope. A young widow with totally different priorities than me.

A monster parading around in an Armani suit. Nico Costa—the perfect monster. The minute my eyes land on the dark-haired vixen that walks into my club, a desire so strong twists like pain in my gut. We play a game of lust that awakens my long-dead heart inside its cage. But I know better than to let a vixen rattle the well-oiled steel bars. No one wants to get deep and personal with a monster. Except she does. At least until the truth comes out. She says her name is Raven Ferrari. But I know her for what she is. A deceptive vixen acting like a kitten Wearing naiveté as a costume so well that it looks like her own skin. A match made in heaven if I ever saw one.
I never intended to pick up a naked hitchhiker wearing nothing but a guitar. A guitar. Really. I don’t collect guys like that (don’t ask what kind of guys I do collect), but when you spot a blonde, tanned, sculpted man with a gorgeous smile and his thumb poking up and practically begging you to stop—you stop. And I definitely never thought I’d be staring into the bright blue eyes of Trevor Connor, the lead singer for Random Acts of Crazy, an indie rock star I followed like the slobbering fileshare fangirl I am. How he came to be nude and lost six hundred miles from home is quite the tale, but how we fell in love is even more unreal. Because someone like Trevor Connor, headed to Harvard Law next year, isn’t supposed to want someone like me, a rural Ohio chick majoring in Boredom at Convenience Store University who is all curves and frizzy blonde hair and manners so unpolished they have sharp edges that make you bleed. But he did. When his best friend, Joe Ross, the bass player for Random Acts of Crazy and a man who makes male models look like ogres, drove eleven hours through the night to rescue him, though, it got real complicated.
Your mindset about money many times is formed in childhood and carries over into adulthood. The thoughts that make up your mindset about money determine how you obtain, manage and grow it. Initially, a poverty mindset is most often not the fault of the person who has the mindset. Several things can influence a person’s thinking pattern: racial inequality, culture, family dynamics, employment, education and environmental factors amongst other contributors. The Bible outlines some kingdom principles that when applied could eliminate or significantly decrease a person’s lack of financial stability.

The year is 2099, and America has taken ‘capitalism’ to a new extreme. After the government goes bankrupt trying to fix the climate disasters it failed to stop in time, it literally auctions off sections of the country to big corporations. The people living on these auctioned-off lands are at the companies’ mercy, made all the more precious by the flooding and toxic environment rendered real by the climate disaster. If they want to survive, the people must serve the rich, who in turn supply them with a fee, board, and monthly rations. But their bosses’ control over them is absolute, and they must obey if they want to stay on the payroll. The alternative is to become a marauder, constantly burned by the acidic seawater flooding the cities and stealing in order to eat.
