Author Biography

Officially . . . MK McClintock is a multiple award-winning author who has written several novels and short stories, including the popular "Montana Gallagher" series set in the 1880s, the "Crooked Creek" series set in post-Civil War Montana, and the highly-acclaimed "British Agent" novels set in Victorian England, Scotland, and Ireland. She created the multi-author "Whitcomb Springs" series, also set in post-Civil War Montana.

Unofficially . . . I allow my imagination freedom to wander at will. It has not and will not settle on one genre. Future stories will take me across more genres and new eras, and I can't wait to get there. You will come to know me through the words I write, and for an author, that is what truly matters.

Clayton's Honor . . . Much like Scotland, Ireland has intrigued me and captured my imagination. I knew when it came time to write a story with a main character like Anne Doyle, she would be a lot like the amazing and strong Irishwomen I've had the pleasure of knowing in my life. Devon Clayton, our hero, deserved someone special, but I also knew the woman would have to be possessed of a kind and gentle spirit, with an uncommon compassion and fierce sense of justice. Anne turned out to be a perfect match for Devon's charismatic and protective personality. I hope you enjoy their story as much as I have.

    Book Review

Reviewed by Rabia Tanveer for Readers' Favorite

Clayton's Honor by MK McClintock is a clean historical romance that will keep your heart beating and your palms sweating. Set in Ireland in 1892, the novel follows Anne Doyle. She lost her father in the war and her mother died of madness; she only has her younger sister and she would do anything for her, no matter what. Her life takes an unexpected turn when she witnesses a murder. Now she has to take help from the remaining family members and she must only go to the person she trusts.

Devon Clayton never really wanted a part of this. He loved the thrill of living on the edge; the danger and the adventure are the perks of his life that he enjoys the most. But when he is given the duty of protecting an innocent woman who witnessed a murder, he is tested beyond his imagination. His life has always been about duty to his country, but this little woman ignites feelings in him he never knew he had. When faced with a choice between duty and honor, which will he choose?

There is nothing I like more than a good romance with strong characters and a powerful storyline. This is part of a series and there are a few mentions of the previous novels, but nothing too complicated that will make you scratch your head. Anne’s story is very powerful and Devon is a very compelling character. He is not scared of taking chances when it comes to his life, but when it comes to love he is headstrong. Nevertheless, I liked him, because his heart was always in the right place. This is definitely a novel that is going on my 'read again' shelf! A really good and smooth read!
