**A Chanticleer Paranormal Winner**
In the midst of the Battle of Concord, Violet Buccleuch wakes to look down at the gaping hole through her heart.
Two months before In February 1775 she lives the life of a normal colonial woman. Though normal is a stretch of the word, since she wears breeches and farms to provide for her sister and mother. However, she knows well of expectations for her to settle down and marry. Her sights are set to wed her childhood friend, Mathew Adams. But fate and a French spy, Jacque Beaumont, falter her best intentions.
Her heart is pulled in two directions as one man offers what she desires; the other saves her after violence and grief rip Violet’s life apart. Then the battle that erupts the American Revolution rages in her yard, forcing Violet, with a rifle in hand, to choose her own fate. But destiny deals her another blow. After she sips what appears to be innocuous water, she finds herself impervious to . . . death. Now immortal, Violet rushes to lend her sniper’s eye for the battle, which she hopes will save the man she vows to love.
About the Author
Have you ever been so involved in a book that you feel truly transported into another world? This is what I want to give to you . . . I live in Montana on, what I call, an accidental farm. You see, my son has a strange superpower, and whatever he wants, the universe will give to him, even if his mommy refuses. When he was in kindergarten, his teacher brought in baby ducks to school. He wanted a duck. That spring, four ducks started living in my front yard. I kid you not. Later, my son's first grade teacher brought chicks to school. He wanted chickens. I refused. The ducks were enough. Just a few months later about twelve chickens came from nowhere and a turkey. Oh, and the turkey wasn't just any kind of turkey, but a mammoth of a bird that scares away the Fedex man. My son wanted a kitten the next year, and I thought the two aging cats we had were enough. The universe had other plans. When we went hiking along the Yellowstone River that spring, we rescued a cold, wet kitten from the swollen waterway. My son is now content with our animals. I hope. I write, research the eighteenth century, and hike around my beautiful big sky as much as I can. Usually with my son, praying he doesn't want a coyote or some other animal as we tread along.

Those looking for a new and unique style of paranormal novel should definitely consider this one. Set in the last 1700s, The Immortal American is unlike any other paranormal novel I've read. I really enjoyed the author's attention to dialect and historical events. The writing style also made the book quite addictive and hard to put down. If you're looking for a book with a strong female character and great paranormal elements, you'll love this book.
This story brought me to tears a few times. You get sucked into the book and imursed into the story. Violet is a farmgirl from Concord and all she wants is to have a good and happy life, to provide for her mother and sister by marrying her childhood friend. Though she never expected a handsome frenchman who connects with her in a way no one else has nor does she expect such tradgedy that comes upon her family. She most certainly did not expect to become immortal. I loved this book and truly recommend it
Get your kleenex ready and plow through this paranormal read set in the background of the Revolutionary War. Heart warming and heart breaking this book will keep you turning the pages. My only complaint is the cliff hanger at the end.
