Spirit of the Revolution - New Romance in the Garden

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?


“And—what about you?” Once again, Jo held her breath while she awaited his reply.

Mathias gave her his full attention then. His gaze bore into hers. He sought something, but she couldn’t guess. Nonetheless, the look in his eyes at this moment fanned the embers that had settled into her belly. Finally, he spoke.

“I never found anyone special—while in my mortal state,” he said.

His answer pleased her. “Oh,” however, was all she could think to say in return. Should she add, “Gee, that’s too bad” when she truly didn’t feel that way? She opted to say nothing more.

“And you?” he asked.

The question caught her off guard. How could she explain what she herself could not? She clasped her hands together, laid them on her lap, and toyed with her fingers. The intensity of Mathias’s gaze compelled her to form an answer. “I guess I’m still waiting around to find the unique kind of love my parents shared. I’ve yet to find it.”
