Excerpt Tour ~ Spirit of the Revolution by Debbie Peterson With Giveaway


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 turned away from the large library window. He looked at her then, and for the briefest of moments, she glimpsed the Ranger that history revered. She caught her breath and held it as he shrugged off the claim. “Highly exaggerated.”

“Oh, come on. Did you or did you not address your commanding officers by their given names as it so states right here on page nineteen, paragraph three?” She held the book aloft and repeatedly tapped the passage.

“Certainly, just as they addressed us by ours. I see no disrespect in that,” he countered.

“I suppose anyone else might have been court-martialed,” she murmured. “However, did you or did you not simply stand at ease while the regular soldiers stood at full attention when so ordered by their commanding officer?”

“I believe we listened attentively to everything they said; therefore, what possible difference could our stance make in the outcome of things?”

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.

I just can't imagine how this could possibly end up happy, but it has to, so I guess I will have to read it to find out. I sure can't imagine how it could end.
