AND Another Review for Blueprint For Love!

Nothing to do with the post, but just as exciting. Our mandarin tree, after eight years of nurturing, watering, and fertilising, has this year produced its first bumper crop!

Writing a book is much the same process...

There are two more reviews on Amazon and more at

Christy Tillery French of Midwest Book Reviews has this to say about Blueprint For Love:

"Can a traditional man with old-fashioned values and a brash, contemporary woman develop an enduring relationship? A disastrous accident holds the answer for both.

Everything a reader could want: heartwarming romance, handwringing suspense, a bit of a mystery, and two very likeable characters who are complete opposites. Clayton's character development is excellent, as is her propensity for visual imagery."

Yet another review for The Pirate And The Puritan!

From Kim Graham at Classic Romance Revival: 5 Wings!: Excerpt:

What an adventure this very enjoyable book took me on. While reading it my imagination took me to another place and time. The description was great. I could actually picture the captain's cabin on the ship.

Even though you know Mercy and Edmund belong together, they have to go through so much to achieve that. It is amazing. Mercy is such a strong character. To be a woman and a mute during this time period made her life very harsh. But she still did what she believed was right and didn't let anyone stop her. That took will power and strength.
