Ghost of a Chance (Silhouette Intimate Moments #1319) 3.5 out of 5 based on 0 ratings. 2 reviews.

It must have been the thigh-hugging breeches, billowing white shirt, and sexy eye patch that made Clara Fergussen lose all inhibition on the first night of her week-long stay in the quaint village of Magnolia Cove. No doubt, her dream lover's pirate regalia was simply the handiwork of her lusty imagination and lifelong fascination with swashbuckling rogues.

Her purpose for visiting Frenchman's Island, after all, was to research an article about her infamous ancestor, Captain Sullivan Fouquet: an historical figure who died two hundred years ago alongside his best friend and partner, Tyree St. James, following a duel of sorts.

Coming face-to-face with her phantom pirate the morning after, therefore, is a very unpleasant surprise for Clara. Most women, of course, would be thrilled to meet their fantasy lover in the flesh. Not so Clara. Handsome -- oh, all right -- devastatingly attractive as he is, the man is still delusional. A yardarm short of a sail, if you will.

He claims to be Tyree St. James, pirate and cursed soul. And while his knowledge of the times and Sullivan Fouquet is impressive enough, there isn't a ghost of a chance that he's a two hundred year old pirate waiting for a curse to be lifted and his soul to be freed.

Then again, what does it matter? If she can just ignore his wild theories, and refuse to get involved with his investigation surrounding an arsonist, missing portraits, and two hundred year old journals, Clara is confident she¿d enjoy a passionate fling with Tyree -- bygone buccaneer or loopy lothario.

Fun, sexy and suspenseful, GHOST OF A CHANCE is the perfect, guiltless time-out from reality (especially if one shares Clara¿s partiality for commanding men in thigh-high boots). The plot¿s ghostly elements require readers take a leap of faith, of course, while giving logic the old heave-ho; Nina Bruhns¿ piratical hero is the stuff of fantasy, however, and will cannily captivate one¿s oh-so susceptible imagination. (Just so long as readers remain open-minded, and refrain from delving too deeply into the limitations of Tyree¿s curse).

Fast-paced and wonderfully whimsical at times, GHOST OF A CHANCE is something of a departure for Ms. Bruhns, but still contains the author's trademark blend of humor, heart-tugging emotion, sizzling sensuality, and sly suspense. Alas, the story¿s dangling threads -- involving a secondary character -- beg a sequel, which has forced this reviewer to follow suit: More, please?
