VBT and Giveaway - Spirit of the Revolution

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?



Mathias sat back in the chair behind the desk and fastened his gaze on the framed picture of Jolena and her parents. They stood near a river, lush with trees in the background. Jolena positioned herself just behind them with the wind blowing freely through her hair. She placed a hand on each of their shoulders, and they all smiled happily for the camera. She looked so beautiful.

“It’s all right to love her, you know,” Sam said, as he appeared inside the library, seated askance in the leather chair across from the desk.

“Be it right or wrong, I’m afraid there’s not much choice left in the matter, Sam,” Mathias replied. “But in case you didn’t notice, Jolena is a vibrant, mortal woman.”

Samuel merely scoffed at the statement, shook his head, and sniffed. “Insignificant details. Mortality is naught but a fleeting thing. Here today and gone tomorrow. We’ve personally seen how quickly it comes and goes ourselves. And not only with our own mortal existence. Think of the generations of your own kin who lived out their entire lives from birth to death, right here in this house. Why, if not for calendars, newspapers, and now the television, we would have no idea the time or the century.”


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.
