SCHOOL'S OUT - book 4 in the Second Chance Teacher Romance series

 



SCHOOL'S OUT

The cool teacher, you know the one, teen girls love him, the guys want to be him, and women would lie down in his path if he’d look their way: that’s Josh Teague.

He teaches science at Central High and no one would expect him to notice, let alone be drawn to drab, frumpy Sarah Wheeling, substitute teacher.

But he is.

Brand New Covers for the Second Chance Teacher Romance series

 



Welcome to Central High, where the teachers are conscientious, everyone knows everyone else, and God is a secret matchmaker. Being high school sweethearts isn’t just for students in this small town. Follow along as the teachers find love, redemption, and new chances at happiness.

If you like novels about love, faith, and friendship, you’ll love the Second Chance Teacher Romance series, written by me, Debra Chapoton, but under the pen name of MARLISA KRISCOTT.

​Start with AARON AFTER SCHOOL, available now on AMAZON.

NEW RELEASE TODAY!

 


Big News:

I've created a new Christian Romance series (3 books so far) and, to keep them separate from all my young adult books, they're being published under a pseudonym: MARLISA KRISCOTT. (My 4 kids are Maren, Lisa, Krista, and Scott ... they probably expect royalties now.)

Book 1, AARON AFTER SCHOOL, releases on Kindle TODAY. Click HERE to go to Amazon. 
Here's the book blurb: 

Aaron Hage was devastated when his wife died. Now he’s a single dad teaching in a small town high school and he absolutely, positively won’t risk his heart again. The teacher in the next classroom—Jill Davis—has him in the friend zone anyway, so why is he having these romantic thoughts about her?

Jill considers Aaron a good friend, one who can give her unbiased advice about students and listen to her when she grumbles about men—she’s given up on dating after the last loser.

Aaron and Jill are colleagues. There’s anything but romance. Rules are meant to be followed in school, but one word changes everything. Now nothing will ever be the same between them … for better or worse.

New Cover for LOVE CONTAINED

 



TRAPPED WITH NO WAY OUT --- LOVE CONTAINED only on Amazon

A thousand shipping containers fall off freighters each year and are lost at sea. A small container can float for up to 57 days before sinking to the depths of the ocean. What if someone was inside? And why would they be?

Henry Winston’s faith is first tested when his twin brother dies. Six years later he returns to the mission field. As soon as Chinese authorities start arresting missionaries, Henry takes refuge in a twenty foot shipping container that has been stocked with food and water for just such a hideout.

When the crane operator mistakenly lifts the container—with him inside—and stacks it on a freighter bound for America, he must endure an ocean crossing fraught with injury, hunger, and a second crisis of faith. As well as an unexpected stowaway.

Storms and rough seas cause several containers including his to slip overboard. He and the stowaway have at most fifty-seven days before the container will sink.

From early readers:

★★★★★ A wonderful story of faith, love, and facing up to your mistakes. Couldn’t put it down. I love Christian suspense and romance.

★★★★★ A nail-biting survival story about a Christian man, without being preachy. Loved it.

★★★★★ I thought the whole story was going to take place in a small cramped box, but it didn’t. There are some awesome settings around the world. The characters were real and relatable. Highly recommended.

★★★★★ Being a missionary myself, I was very interested in the blend of cultures. The book had a lot of twists and turns that made it readable with a bit of suspension of reality. Very Christian message. I enjoyed it!

★★★★★ Good read books for women - good read choices 2022

From the Ink & Insights contest judges:

★★★★★ This story has all of the best elements: mystery, adventure, and romance.

★★★★★ Very effective story telling.

★★★★★ All in all, a very well-written and thought-out story.

A FAULT OF GRAVES


 

A FAULT OF GRAVES

Three catastrophes. Two underground cities. One boy with premonitions.

A high school field trip ends unexpectedly when seven students and three teachers slip down a Florida sinkhole. A maze of caverns, tunnels, and dark passageways reveals an underground world full of peril—and signs that they’re not alone. This small group of outcasts, loners, and special needs kids must find a way to survive. But the hovering adults with them may not have their best interests at heart. Dive into a heart-pounding story of endurance and coming of age in a dark and dangerous place.

What early readers are saying:

Danger vs. survival. I loved it.

This is a page-turner peppered with bits of hope, love, and faith along with moments of suspicion, risk, and revenge. Movie ready.

This was intense. Lots of surprises and suspense, but there’s budding love too. I liked that these characters aren’t your typical teens. An Asperger’s kid, a stutterer, an epileptic.

Who can you trust? Who’s not afraid of the dark? Fast paced and frightening!
