Soulful Alliance Excerpt
Scene: Jack downplays the need for immediate medical attention. Marcy overrules him.
Hounded by a childhood tragedy most of her adult life, Marcy Rayburn tucks tail and hides out in Bayou Country, forsaking a high-profile singing career and all chances of any meaningful relationships. No matter how long she’s been out of the limelight, the reclusive entertainer finds that she’s still fodder for the gossip news. Will the appearance of Jack, an unannounced interloper, cast her back into the spotlight and her heart into a tailspin?
Unceremoniously dumped by his fiancée, Jack Connolly has spent the last few years living in an alternate reality. Going down South to repair and retrieve the company’s helicopter is a pain in his rear. That pain soon has a name, and ultimately, a grip on his walled-off heart. Is he willing to revisit his old world and sacrifice his freedom to give Marcy what she needs?
Two hearts ache. But, will a soulful alliance remedy the pain or only mask the hurt?
“You have one bad temper, too,” Jack said.
“Buckle your damn seatbelt—and your mouth.” Marcy had them whizzing along at breakneck speeds, courting a traffic citation if caught.
Jack’s lightheadedness quieted him for a moment. “A foul mouth alludes to a dirty mind.”
Marcy spared him a scathing look. She reached out, catching him by surprise. Her soft fingertips wiped sweat from his brow. “I hope you’re a better pilot than a mechanic. What kind of mechanic stabs himself with his tool?” she taunted.
“What kind of woman cries bloody murder or forgets about her own child while she romps in the weeds?” he lobbed back instantly, sorry now for attacking her maternal instincts.
Marcy’s protective shell is her outspoken personality.
Will she make Jack regret the bite of his words?
