READ THE BLURB
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?
READ AN EXCERPT
He joined his lips to hers and after several heart-stirring kisses, he took a small step back, and gazed into her eyes. A look of regret filled the warm brown depths. “The heavens have played naught but a cruel joke on us, Jolena, my love, dividing our lives by the centuries that have kept us apart.”
Jo released a sigh as she shook her head. “No, Mathias. The heavens are never intentionally cruel. I believe each person is born to the time and place he or she is most needed. In the beginning, our nation struggled for each breath of life she took. She needed men such as you. Men with strength, courage, and the skills you possess to make her independent and free. Your life, the valiant deeds you accomplished, the risks you took, and the impact you had while you lived, is more important than what you could possibly imagine. Someday you’ll know this for yourself, but I know it now.”
“Such high praise for an ordinary man, and I’m not sure I deserve it. But, even if half of what you say is true, why couldn’t you have lived during my time and shared your life with me there?” he asked.
MEET THE AUTHOR
