Ghost of a Chance Her present…

The last thing Bethany Harris expects when she inherits a classic Corvette is to find a sexy, flight suit-wearing ghost in her passenger seat. She never imagined ghosts were so handsome or so doable. Who knew she’d find love with a man who died forty years earlier and who could only gain his heavenly reward with her help? Why, oh why, does Nick Giordano have to be the embodiment of her dreams?

His past…

The only thing United States Air Force Captain Nicholas Giordano is interested in since his death in Vietnam is getting to the hereafter. Stuck in a Corvette and unable to communicate with the living, until Bethany climbs in the driver’s seat, he knows she’s the key. Hoping the answer lies in Myrtle Beach in 1965, he takes Bethany back with him to a time when he lived and loved. And has to die all over again.

Their future…?

Prologue

Myrtle Beach, South Carolina, Summer 1966

War was hell.

Not an original thought, Captain Nicolas Giordano mused, but an accurate one.

The stomp of his combat boots echoed through the empty halls of the office building, the stale air abraded his lungs. His mind raced through the arrangements he'd already made, the steps he still had to take, before his squadron shipped off for Vietnam in two weeks. He'd made out his will and packed up everything he wasn't taking with him so it could be stored. He'd made the rounds and said good-bye to everyone who mattered most to him.

With one exception.

The thought of parting from her just about brought him to his knees.

Of everything Nick had to leave behind when he and his fighter jet, the F-100, made the trip to South East Asia, he'd miss her the most.

He'd searched for her for years, it seemed, looking for his perfect match. They'd only had six months together and now he had to prepare to leave her.

Dammit. War really was hell.

Oh, he'd made sure she'd be well taken care of in case his plane got shot down and he never made it back to the States. But all of his precautions couldn't dull the ache that settled in his chest or the lump in his throat when he thought of leaving her behind.

Would anyone love her like he did? Would they pamper her and tend to her every need?

Plans had already formed - plans to spend the next two weeks cruising with the top down, maybe taking a spin to Pawley's Island or Folly Beach. Anything to spend as much time with her as possible, when he wasn't perfecting his dog fighting skills in the event one of the fighter bombing runs ran into difficulty.

He needed to be inside her, to hold her tight. He longed to run his hands over her sleek curves, to push her to the limits.

He exited the one-story building just off the flight line at Myrtle Beach Air Force Base, anxious to see her. The sun hung low on the horizon, a ripe peach prepared to sink into the Atlantic Ocean. Still plenty of time left to cruise up and down Ocean Boulevard.

He spotted her immediately, waiting for him right where he'd left her. He swelled with pride. He just swelled, period. And in a flight suit, with other jet jockeys still milling around, getting a hard on was not the brightest of ideas.

The tang of ocean air lingered in his nostrils as he crossed to her. He trailed his fingers along her side, his blood rushing further south.

Tugging his driving gloves out of one of the many pockets in his flight suit, Nick unlocked the door of his candy apple red '64 Corvette and slid inside, the white leather interior caressing his body. Heart thumping, he backed out of the parking space and turned the sports car in the direction of the front gate. Ocean Boulevard called to him.

God, he was going to miss his Vette while he was gone.

When Bethany Harris inherits a classic Corvette, the last thing she expects is to also inherit a ghost along with it, especially one who is so totally hot. US Air Force Captain Nicholas Giordano has been stuck in purgatory and in his Corvette since his death in Vietnam thirty years ago. Bethany is the first owner of the Corvette who has actually seen him, which gives him hope that he may finally be able find away out. It turns out that Bethany is the key to his freedom.

But once Nick and Bethany are back in his time, Nick is still due to leave for Vietnam and the flight that led to his death. Is there a chance that they can keep Nick from dying again? Or will Bethany be stuck in an unfamiliar time without the man she loves?

Of all the stories I am likely to pick up, time travel stories are usually the last on my list. I am so glad that I took a chance and picked up Ghost of a Chance. I loved this story. Nick was a playboy, but thirty years in purgatory will change a person. Bethany has been hurt by her ex-husband, so they are both wounded souls when they find each other. They spend quite a bit of time together before they actually go back to Nick’s time. Once they do, Bethany is faced with the attitudes of the day. Plus, Nick’s tour of duty in Vietnam is coming up. Both are faced with dealing with knowing the future and what happened the first time. Throw in kitchen-table-breaking love scenes, and Felicia Forella will definitely be an author I will be looking for in the future!
