Bewitching Book Tours Presents Spirit of the Rebellion

Spirit of Rebellion
By Deborah K Peterson
Souls touch and emotions flare when a historian and an embittered spirit form an unlikely alliance to investigate the centuries-old riddle surrounding his death…

Ready for a fresh chapter in her life, Shae Lynn Montgomery accepts a job translating a cache of Civil War documents from Wisconsin’s famous Norwegian regiment. The assignment takes her to Chickamauga’s haunted Starling Plantation and face-to-face with a handsome captain—its angry ghost in residence.

Tristan Jordahl, falsely accused of treason, has no use for the living—not even the lovely translator invading his home. Despite Tristan’s best efforts to frighten her, Shae Lynn refuses to leave, and reluctantly, Tristan enlists her help to clear his name. But as they grow closer to the truth—and to each other—an evil spirit makes it clear he will do anything to stop them.

Can a love that transcends time overcome all obstacles?

“You’ve got to let me in, you have to let me explain, please,” she begged through the barrier that separated    hem.  “I swear on everything dear to me, I’m not moving from this spot until you do.  Do you hear me?  I’m not leaving!”
“I am not interested in anything you have to say,” he growled back.
“I don’t care.  I’m staying right here until you hear me out!” she shouted.
As the minutes ticked by, the Captain tried desperately to ignore her presence, but finally, his shoulders slumped in defeat.  The chiming of the clock told him over an hour had passed since Shaelynn obstinately decreed her intention to remain in the small hallway until she said what she wanted to say.  He hoped her wet clothes and the trauma of her earlier experience, would force the issue otherwise.  But true to her word, she still waited outside his door. 
Stubborn little hellion
With a sigh of resignation, he opened the door and met her defiant gaze.  She stood against the opposite wall, with one foot resting against the baseboard.  Her arms wrapped tightly around her waist as if seeking warmth against her wet, torn clothing.  On top of all that, she shivered with the cold.  She looked so pathetic standing there.
“Shaelynn, you need to get into some dry clothes,” he said.  The words surprised him.  They weren’t anywhere near what he planned to say.  The soft tone didn’t match either.       
Shae clenched her teeth and shook her head.  “Not until we’ve talked.”

Let's take a moment to get to know Ms. Peterson

  About the Author:

When she is not busy conjuring her latest novel, she spends time with the beloved members of her very large family. She also pursues her interests in family history and all things ancient and historic.

What inspired you to write your first book?

Rather than a “what” it was a “who.” My beloved husband must take the credit (or the blame, depending on your point of view) for encouraging me to write the stories swirling around inside my mind.

How did you come up with the title?

Well, “Spirit of the Rebellion” centers around the ghost of a murdered Civil War captain, shortly after the battle of Chickamauga.  Therefore, I suppose, the title was inevitable.

What are your current projects?

“Spirit of the Revolution” is currently under contract with The Wild Rose Press and is now in the editing stages. We hope to have a release date soon. Once we have the release date for that novel, I’ll submit another ghostly romance, which I have waiting in the wings, to my dear sweet editor and see where it goes!

   Who designed the covers?

   The talented Tamra Westberry designed the cover for “Spirit of the Rebellion.”

   If you had to do it all over again, would you change anything in your latest

I’d like to think that every paragraph I write is better than the one I wrote before. So, when I finally see my books in print and reread them, I see so many things I’d like to “do over.” So, we live with what we’ve done, count it as a learning experience, and hope that each book is far better than the last.

Do you have to travel much concerning your book(s)?

Don’t I wish!  The characters in my various books get to see all of the places I hope to visit someday. Wales, Scotland, Ireland, Denmark, and Norway, to name a few. But maybe one day, if I’m really, really, lucky…

What book are you reading now?

“  Story of the Irish Race” by Seumas MacManus.

   Do you have any advice for other writers?

   Keep writing, believe in yourself, and whatever you do, don’t give up!
