New excerpt from Ghostly Encounter!

New excerpt from Ghostly Encounter, a young adult paranormal romance suitable for ages 13+.  See my website for more info:

“I have missed you, Mia Randall.”

Mia’s eyes flew open. Standing before her leaning against the sturdy trunk of a hickory tree was Private Benjamin Alexander Richards, his face every bit as alluring as she remembered.

He walked toward her and knelt at her feet. “I feared that I would never see you again.”

Mia closed her eyes. “You’re not real. You’re not real. You’re not real,” she chanted over and over again, willing her sanity to come back.

She opened her eyes. He was still there, gazing at her with a crooked grin on his face.

Mia covered her face with her palms. “This is not happening. He’s not real. He’s not real,” she mumbled.

She slid her palms away, and Benjamin remained visible. He was still grinning, but his amusement had been replaced with a hint of sadness.

“I wish you no harm, Mia. If you prefer that I leave and never return, then I will do so. You have my word as a gentleman.”

“Yes, leave me alone. Go away,” she urged frantically.

He vanished.
