Spirit of the Revolution by Debbie Peterson - Virtual Tour and Giveaway

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?

Enjoy an excerpt:

Jo took in a sharp breath as she stared. “Do you mean to tell me my ancestral grandparents lived on the same property, now owned by Douglas and Gloria?”

“That’s right,” William said. “And that gives you every right to check it out, doesn’t it?”

“Well, I’m up for it,” Sam said. “Of course, we’d need the lass here to go with us. We can accomplish many things on our own accord, but I don’t know if we have the skills to dig down into the dirt.”

“How about it, Jolena?” Alexander bounced his brows and gave her a nudge. “Are you up for a little adventure?”

“Such an escapade could be fun,” William baited.

“I don’t know, boys. Just picture the look on their faces when I knock on their door and say something like— “So, you know the ghosts who live at my house? Well they think they might’ve left something important in your cemetery a couple of centuries back. So, you don’t mind if we go and look for it, do you?”

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.

  1. I like Jo's line at the end of that excerpt...ever practical. That's what I'd be thinking...and I'd tack on, "These people are gonna think we're NUTS!" LOL. It does sound like an adventure, though.
