Marking Mariah

LIZ CROWE

When a severe concussion sustained on a mission in Egypt equals a discharge for one-time soccer super star turned Delta Force IT expert, Terrance “Trigger” O'Leary, he spends half a year drunk, and in more strange beds than even he is willing to admit. 

After wandering back home to Lucasville, Kentucky, he’s hired by his old friend, now the principal of the local high school. Honestly believing that his new job as soccer coach and part time bartender will be all he needs to fix himself, he’s determined to leave everything about his old life behind.

But a chance encounter at a karaoke bar turns into a smoking hot hook-up with a woman whose deep mocha skin and hypnotic singing voice turns him inside out. A woman he’s a little surprised to meet again the next day—Mariah Bailey, recent winner of “Singers,” a national talent competition, and the high school’s new music teacher.

When terrifying, inexplicable violence rips the sleepy community apart, Trigger must leap back into action— which forces Mariah to accept his feelings about her, and the fact that even he can’t always save the day.​
