Second Chances by Nancy Pennick (spotlight, excerpt, and GIVEAWAY) GFT

by Nancy Pennick


GENRE: New Adult, contemporary



Kate is ready to start a new life in a great city. Determined to follow her dream, she left college to write a book. Arriving in New York City, she vows to live in the present, not the past. Easy for most to say, except she has a secret. Kate is a time traveler.  She met the love of her life back in 1927. But he’s here now. No looking back. No going back.


Exclusive Excerpt:

Over the course of that evening, the girls got to know each other and promised to stay in touch. Many texts, phone calls and a few face-to-face meetings took place over the last two years. Kate understood Randi’s struggles. She wanted to act. Freddie wished she worked at the law firm.

“So you were only eighteen the first time we met?” Randi asked. “Kate? Did you hear me?”

“What? Oh, yes.” Kate blinked a few times.

“Where were you?” Randi stared at her. “I think I know. You were thinking of that hot guy you call a fiancĂ©e. When are you two tying the knot? You’ve been engaged like forever.”

Kate inwardly cringed. If only Randi knew she called her uncle “hot”. “Still in the planning stages. We’re in no rush.” She sighed again. “It’s only been a week, but I miss him. We talk every day.”

“Say no more.” Randi rummaged through her Gucci light green leather handbag “Darn phone! Where are you?” She came up with the device and punched in a number. “Papa! Hello, my favorite uncle of all time.” She grinned at Kate. “I will visit. Soon. First I have a favor. Can you fly Kate home this weekend? She needs to see her man. The sooner the better.” She lifted her eyebrows at Kate. “You’re the best. I love you.” She hung up and studied Kate with one eye closed. “You need some sex in your life. Go home, surprise Drew and stay in bed all weekend.”

Kate took a deep breath. Randi said whatever came to mind. She didn’t want to discuss her sex life. She barely talked with her best friend, Lindsey, about that part of her life. “Randi!”

“Oh? You don’t have sex?” Randi’s beautiful chocolate brown eyes stared her down.

If only she knew how hard I had to try when he came to the present. Drew and his old-fashioned values.  Kate rolled her eyes. “Yes, of course.”


“Drew’s a private person, Randi. He wouldn’t like me talking about him.” Especially to you!
