Spirit of the Rebellion

Debbie Petersen
Paranormal Romance

"Why would her words bother him?  More importantly, why did it bother her that it bothered him?"

Ready for a change, Shae Lynn accepts a position translating Civil War documents for an upcoming museum exhibit.  Of course, the assignment requires she move into an old plantation home - a haunted plantation home.  But the idea of ghosts doesn't bother Shae Lynn.  She's dealt with one before and shouldn't have a problem here.  Though she has never encountered someone who wants her gone as badly as the Captain does.  Tristan just wants some privacy in the afterlife.  He doesn't need a beautiful young woman moving in and he certainly doesn't want her reading and translating those documents.  Why won't she just get the point?  Instead of running away, she seems to be delving deeper into the past, trying to find out who he is and what really happened when he died.  Is the truth waiting to be found, or will his disgrace live on forever?

My Opinion:  This was a simply fabulous read and one that really was a delightful surprise.  Obviously done with a lot of research, you didn't feel bogged down by the facts, but rather swept into the echoes of the past. Additionally, the inclusion of a bit of mythical lore makes for an unique twist.  Both the main characters and side characters are introduced carefully, making for realistically developed relationships.  The romance is heart-wrenching and wonderful and simply toe-curling.  It really pulls you in.  This one will definitely keep you reading and reading to find out what will happen next.  I was almost disappointed that it was over since it was such a delight to read.  I would highly recommend this one.

I received a free copy of this book to review.  No other compensation was given.  The summary and review are 100% my own.
