Read an exclusive excerpt from 'Spirit of the Revolution' by Debbie Peterson

Spirit of the Revolution
by Debbie Peterson



Only divine intervention could have guided Jolena Leigh Michaelsson to the doorstep of a ramshackle manor in Pennsylvania, bringing her face-to-face with the man she has waited her whole life to find. There is just one problem. Mathias McGregor died two centuries ago…

Mathias, Revolutionary War ranger and spy, battles his conscience and his heart when he finds himself falling for the beautiful violinist invading his home. Jolena is mortal and deserves far more than what he as a spirit can offer her.

When Jolena’s family motto leads them to unearth a valuable coded message—the very message Mathias died trying to deliver to General Washington—Jolena vows to unravel the mystery surrounding the cryptic document. But someone else wants the message, and he’ll stop at nothing to get it, not even murder.

Divine intervention brought them together—will it also allow them to find forever?


Read an exclusive excerpt:
Did he scare her? Yeah, maybe a little. The thumping of her heart attested to that. But many times in her life she had sensed something truly threatening, something truly evil. She didn’t have any of those feelings now. In fact, in a bizarre sort of twist, he made her feel relatively calm. Still, her eyes searched out the door, looking for a means of escape if for nothing more than to think this situation through and try to understand it. She would need to pass by the—by him, in order to leave the room. And go where?

Won’t do you any good, for I’ll still be here when you come back, and you know you’d have to come back,” her ghost pointed out.

Somewhere in the back of her mind, she appreciated the fact that he stood very still, waiting for her to come to terms with something she didn’t understand or believe. Finally, after assessing the truth of his words, she looked him directly in the eye, raised her chin a notch, and tilted her head to one side.

You are not supposed to be here,” she stated with all the conviction she could muster.


AUTHOR Bio and Links:

Debbie has always had a soft spot for fairy tales, the joy of falling in love, and happily ever after endings. Stories of love and make believe filled her head for as long as she can remember. However, it was her beloved husband who encouraged, cajoled and inspired her to take up a pen and write some of them down.

Her journey to published author could fill quite a few pages, but in June of 2010, she submitted her debut novel, “Spirit of the Rebellion” to her wonderful, patient, editor at The Wild Rose Press. A few short months after Rebellion’s release, her second novel, “Shadow of the Witte Wieven” was published through InkSpell Publishing. Her third novel, “Spirit of the Revolution” will be released May 31, 2013, through The Wild Rose Press.

When she’s not busy conjuring her latest novel, Debbie spends time with the members of her very large family. She also pursues her interests in family history, mythology, and all things ancient and historic.
