SPIRIT OF THE REVOLUTION by Debbie Peterson


This post is part of a Virtual Book Tour organized by Goddess Fish Promotions. Debbie will be awarding a custom made piece of jewelry to a randomly drawn commenter during the tour (US ONLY). Click on the tour banners to see the other stops on the tour.

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?

Excerpt

Mathias, alongside the boys, appeared midway on the steps. With a skill honed by decades of experience, they slowly, so very, very slowly, descended the stairs toward the trespasser. They could hear the acceleration of his heartbeat with each step they took.

Jedediah patted the dog on his way down the steps. “That’s a good boy, Dakota. You did a good job. Stay now.”

Self-preservation prompted Owen to whirl away from them and make a break for the entryway door. Once again, he found himself tearing at the handle of a door that simply refused to open. “Let me out,” he screamed pitifully, helplessly. “Please. Please, just let me out.”

Mathias snorted his disgust and nodded at the others. “I think he’s had enough, lads. Let’s go ahead and let him out.”

At long last, they allowed the door to give way. Yet, before Owen could make his escape, Sam slammed the door shut once again, sidled up next to him, and said, “I wouldn’t think of ever coming back here if I were you—for any reason. Because next time you pay us a visit, you won’t ever leave. You’ll get to stay here forever and play with us. We’ll have such fun—”

About the Author: 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.
