Cover_SpiritOfTheRevolutionOnly 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?


“So, what then? You think earthbound ghosts stay here and never, ever cross over? Never find peace?”

“Not at all. I think the majority of ghosts, at least benevolent ghosts, find their way home in time. Sometimes it takes help from the living, though. Especially if the ghost has unfinished business he or she wants finished. There are murder victims that want justice before they’ll cross over. Then there are ghosts who want their bodies found, identified, and buried. Some need to understand and then truly believe, despite all past sins that a merciful God in heaven won’t thrust them into a raging inferno the minute they pass through the light. Except of course, for the really bad ones, who probably are going to hell for their heinous deeds and deservedly so,” she said with a firm nod of her head. “I can’t imagine brutal murderers being welcomed into heaven with open arms.”

“I see,” Jo murmured.

“Sometimes the living can keep a ghost here, as well, you know,” Carolyn said as she added some soda to her glass and then slid the bottle toward Jo.

“How would they do that?” she asked.

“Love,” Carolyn said.

AuthorPicDebbie 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.

    • Thank you so much for the comment, momjane! As I mentioned on my “Do you Believe in Ghosts” blog post, the ghostly romance between “The ghost and Mrs. Muir” probably had a major influence as to why my heroes are ghosts… (at least for now they are…)

  5. Interesting premise
