She fell deeply in love with him in the early days of her childhood. And in return, she captured his heart the moment he first cast his gaze upon her.... Renowned artist Mariah Jennings, hired to paint a 13th-century Scottish castle, gets the shock of her life when she encounters the handsome knight who has dominated a lifetime of portraits and sketchbooks. But Sir Cailen Braithnoch is no ordinary ghost, nor did he suffer an ordinary death. Magic of the blackest kind cast a pall over the knights centuries ago. As the ghost and his lady seek to unravel the paradox surrounding his death, black arts, otherworldly forces, and a jealous rival conspire against them. Will those forces tear them apart, or is their love destined to last throughout the ages?
Debbie is an author of sweet paranormal and fantasy romance. She has always had a soft spot for fairy tales, the joy of falling in love, making an impossible love possible, and happily ever after endings. She loves music, art, beautiful sunrises, sunsets, and thunder storms. When she's not busy conjuring her latest novel, She spends time with the members of her very large and nutty family in the lovely, arid deserts of southern Nevada. She also pursues her interests in family history, mythology, and history.
The rumble of an American motorcycle and the deep tones of Dawson McBride have much in common as both are likely to stir something deep inside. Bringing an earthy growl and a passion for love stories, Dawson can be heard bringing life to bad boys, cowboys, and everything in between. A narrator who specializes in the production of audiobooks in the romance genre, Dawson is the romantic side of his alter-ego’s brand. Much like automobile manufacturers who have more than one brand within their company, while his alter-ego may be best described as a Ford F-150, Dawson is more associated with the Lincoln Continental. Smooth and luxurious. He lives with his wife and daughter and enjoy living in a small, quiet community in Tennessee.
Spirit of the Knight is my first introduction to Debbie Peterson's writing. It is a fun and entertaining read, involving ghosts, curses, castles, and romance. Mariah is an artist who is working on the visual history of an old castle in Scotland.
I loved Spirit of the Knight. I had the pleasure of listening the audio version of it and thought the narrator, Dawson McBride, did a great job portraying the story. His voice was perfect to bring the tale to life. I loved the spooky setting of a Scottish castle. It made the mystery and suspense so much more intriguing.
I am giving Spirit of the Knight four stars. I would love to read more by this author in the future. I believe many readers who enjoy paranormal romances would love this one.
I received the audio version of this book from the publisher. This review is 100% my own honest opinion.
I received this audiobook as part of my participation in a blog tour with Audiobookworm Promotions. The tour is being sponsored by Debbie Peterson. The gifting of this audiobook did not affect my opinion of it.

I can’t ever remember a time when I didn’t love books. My mom read to us when we were very small and when I learned to read, there were frequent trips to the library. I found I loved a great variety of genres. One day I remember asking my Aunt (who also loved to read) if she had any recommendations. She had two: Wuthering Heights and Jane Eyre. I love them both. So, my literary inspirations began with:
- Charlotte Bronte
- Emily Bronte
- Edgar Allen Poe
- Mary Stewart
- Phyllis A Whitney
