Book excerpt: “Complete with a romantic subplot, DECEPTIONS: A Colonial Jamestown Novel is a strong historical tale that brings the Jamestown Virginia Colony to life through the eyes of the determined heroine Catherine, who manages to travel to the New World in search of her betrothed. Breathtaking suspenseful action follows as Catherine tries to unravel the various mysterious happenings between her husband and the Powhatan Indians. Readers will relish this in-depth look at how the first English colonists struggled to survive in Jamestown, circa 1617-1619.” —Harriet Klausner Desperate to escape a marriage arranged by her aristocratic London guardians and to wed her childhood sweetheart, beautiful but innocent Catherine Parke secretly boards a ship in England bound for the New World in 1617. But the shock of what greets Catherine in Colonial Jamestown nearly destroys her. Her betrothed, now a successful Indian trader seems to be hiding secrets. Although disappointments and disasters repeatedly test Catherine's strength and courage, a burning desire to uncover the truth drives her to unravel a confusing web of deceptions and lies. With her own life in jeopardy, Catherine is drawn to the one man who can save her, but wonders if she can trust him, or will she be swept into an unknown and terrifying wilderness, once again loving the wrong man and paying dearly for it? Vivid historical details bring the Jamestown settlement and Indian villages to life. Marilyn Clay’s suspenseful and compelling tale of one courageous woman determined to forge a new life for herself in a frightening and dangerous New World is an irresistible combination of intrigue, suspense and romance. (Deception was originally published in hardcover by Five Star Gale Cengage and is available in ebook as The Letter, and Dangerous Deceptions) “With realistic, well-researched historical detail, a strong, intelligent heroine, and a fascinating, uncommon setting, this novel will appeal to romance and historical fans alike.” —Library Journal “A surfeit of fascinating historical details and a refreshingly different setting give DECEPTIONS its unique flavor, making Marilyn Clay’s novel perfect for readers who miss the romance-tinged historical novels of Rosalind Laker.” — Booklist “DECEPTIONS is one of the best historical suspense novels I have ever read! Highly recommended!” — Mary Frasier “Marilyn Clay's DECEPTIONS is a multi-layered story of struggle, lies and the quest for love in the New World. Faithful to historical detail, including language and actions, it was a joy to read such a wonderfully written historical novel. Readers of historical fiction will find themselves completely immersed in the time period and, more importantly, in the story of feisty and intelligent Catherine, whose voyage to Jamestown is the beginning of a life-changing journey.” — Libby Malin DECEPTIONS by Marilyn Clay was originally published in hardcover by Five Star Gale Cengage, but apart from used copies in print, it is no longer available in print.

Lady Abercorn knows exactly how to win Lilibet a rich husband—with her grandmother’s bewitched wedding dress.

The changes and plot twists keep readers on their toes, and will have mystery and history lovers running to Amazon and their local libraries for this one! Stay alert, because this plot holds your attention until the very last page.” - ONCE UPON A ROMANCE "Reading A PETTICOAT AND LAMBSKIN GLOVES is like stepping through a doorway into history. Marilyn Clay has done an incredible amount of research into the period, how it would look and smell and feel if you were truly in 1620s Jamestown. The romances are sweet, touching and period appropriate. A PETTICOAT AND LAMBSKIN GLOVES is the kind of book you want to get lost in and are sad when it’s over. Thoroughly recommended." -Janis May, author. "I won this book in a contest from the author, with no obligation to give a review. But I must. I've been to Jamestown, researched the early settlers and walked that same plot of ground. This story is so real . . . all my knowledge fit with the people, scenes and events. The story depicts the hardships of the people of the times when they embark to a new land full of unexpected rewards and grave disappointments. Sallie Mae is one of the strongest characters and deserves her ending. Prudence surprised me with what she did in a moment of weakness. Faith’s life was changed by the actions of her sister. The culmination of her deeds also surprised me and showed what can happen as we are affected by the actions of those we hold dear. This is historical fiction – some of the best I’ve read. I am thrilled! Marilyn Clay is an author to follow. 5 Stars. Highly recommended." - Mary Deal MARILYN CLAY has also authored the new, critically acclaimed Regency-set Miss Juliette Abbott Mystery Series with clever, young Miss Juliette Abbott as the amateur sleuth.

Available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle. Book excerpt: BETSY ROSS: ACCIDENTAL SPY . . . In Philadelphia 1776 as the American Revolutionary war is breaking out, Betsy Ross wonders what really happened the night of the munitions warehouse explosion that killed her beloved husband John Ross. Was the explosion an accident or was the warehouse fire intentionally set? When the authorities refuse to investigate the crime, Betsy vows to solve the mystery herself but is soon drawn into Philadelphia’s dangerous underworld of spies and double agents working for both the British and the Patriots. Ultimately she has no choice but to trust the wrong man, but will she lose her life, or the lives of those she holds dear, in the process? “BETSY ROSS: ACCIDENTAL SPY will leave you breathless with anticipation wondering if Betsy will succeed in her mission to bring down the ruthless double spy intent on thwarting the rebel cause.” -Richard Whitaker, historian. "A truly suspenseful and thrilling tale with an intelligent and feisty heroine whom we are all familiar with from our knowledge of American history. What fun to envision Betsy Ross living as a single woman in Philadelphia in 1776. Ms. Clay has written a clever and imaginative tale providing Betsy the opportunity to use both her talent as a seamstress, and an intuitive woman, to solve a real-life crime that even today remains an American mystery" - Melissa Frederick, historical author. “From the talented pen of Marilyn Clay, fast becoming known as a premier historical suspense author, comes yet another skillful and exciting masterpiece.

"This is the sort of historical novel you don't want to see end. I sat up long into the night reading this book. I only hope Ms. Clay intends to write a sequel! Thoroughly enjoyed, thoroughly recommended!"- Andrea Walsh. BETSY ROSS: ACCIDENTAL SPY is also available in print from major online retailers.

Four young women – Diana, Sallie Mae, Faith and Prudence – come from England on the Bride Ship to the New World. Each comes for reasons of her own, and brings a baggage of secrets and lies. After surviving the hellish trip across the Atlantic, they find that life in the colony of Jamestown is not what they dreamed it to be. Life is hard, with unending work. There are Indians all around, both good ones and bad ones. Lots of single men want to marry, but who among them can be trusted? And there is a mystery, but I'm not going to give away too much of the plot, so you can enjoy it for yourself. Reading A PETTICOAT AND LAMBSKIN GLOVES is like stepping through a doorway into history. Marilyn Clay has done an incredible amount of research into the period, and it shows in a good way . . . how it would look and smell and feel if you were truly in 1620s Jamestown.

Summary Book Review Betsy Ross :

Download or read book Betsy Ross written by Marilyn Clay and published by CreateSpace. This book was released on 2014-01-23 with total page 340 pages. Available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle. Book excerpt: A NEW, revised and expanded addition of the popular novel, BETSY ROSS: ACCIDENTAL SPY by Marilyn Clay. This edition contains three brand new chapters making the book a total of 340 pages.Betsy Griscom falls in love with John Ross while both young people are employed as apprentices at Webster's Upholstery Shop in Philadelphia. Three years after the couple marry, a warehouse explosion kills Betsy's beloved husband John. Betsy soon begins to wonder if the explosion was an accident or was the warehouse fire intentionally set? Was someone attempting to steal the Patriot weapons stored there? When the authorities refuse to investigate the crime, Betsy determines to uncover the truth, but finds herself deep in Philadelphia's dangerous and confusing underworld of spies and double agents. Ultimately she has no choice but to trust the wrong man, but will she lose her life, or the lives of those she holds dear, in the process? BETSY ROSS: ACCIDENTAL SPY is a gripping tale of one woman's courage during the pivotal year of 1776 in our nation's history. "I made every effort to remain true to historical events, such as the first public reading of the Declaration of Independence, and battles fought in colonial New York and New Jersey. In my story Betsy interacts with real-life historical figures George Washington, Benjamin Franklin and her siblings, Sarah, Rachel and George, as well as her future husband, privateer Captain Joseph Ashburn. I consulted diaries and letters written by American Revolutionary generals and soldiers who lived then. I hope readers will enjoy imagining how Betsy's life 'might have been' in the year 1776, keeping in mind that the premise of my story is fictional. History does not substantiate that Betsy Ross ever engaged in any sort of covert activity." - author, Marilyn Clay "One of the most suspenseful tales of spying and espionage cleverly interwoven into a stunningly realistic depiction of the Revolutionary war featuring life as it was in 1776 for normal, everyday citizens caught up in a drama they had no choice but to endure." . . . Pat Beardon, historian. “BETSY ROSS: ACCIDENTAL SPY will leave you breathless with anticipation wondering if Betsy will succeed in her mission to bring down the ruthless double spy intent on thwarting the rebel cause. Chock full of authentic historical details about the Revolutionary war. Highly recommended!” . . . Richard Whitaker, historian. “From the talented pen of Marilyn Clay, fast becoming known as a premier historical suspense author, comes yet another exceptional tale. Characters in Clay's novels spring to life as they draw you into their world, allowing you to live their stories right along with them. In addition, BETSY ROSS: ACCIDENTAL SPY is, I believe, the first novel ever written for adults featuring Betsy Ross as the heroine.” - Janet Stewart. “That American icon Betsy Ross might have spied on the British for the Patriots during the Revolutionary war is not a stretch. Loyalist customers would have frequented Betsy's upholstery shop in Philadelphia presenting her with the perfect opportunity to listen and learn, which is exactly what she does in this clever, suspenseful, and beautifully written tale that had me in its grip from page one. I laughed and cried with Betsy and her beloved sister Sarah as the story unfolded and reached a most satisfying conclusion. Highly recommended!” – Melissa Frederick, author "This is the sort of historical novel you don't want to see end. I sat up long into the night reading this book. I only hope Ms. Clay intends to write a sequel! Thoroughly enjoyed, thoroughly recommended!" - Andrea Walsh, author. "Ms. Clay's historical suspense novels always please. Her Colonial Jamestown novels have been praised and recommended by both Booklist and the Library Journal. BETSY ROSS: ACCIDENTAL SPY is no exception. Very highly recommended." - Beth Finley, author.
