Author: Amelia Bishop
Publisher: Self Published

Genre: Historical, M/M Romance, Menage/Poly
Clayton Taylor is smart and skilled, and born into privilege. His expertise with navigation lands him a job on The Irish Lady, a ship which promises a world of new experiences. Half in love with Peter, The Lady’s roguish captain, Clayton signs on for adventure and a chance to test his skill against the sea. Once aboard he meets Jorge, a pillar of quiet strength.
Clayton’s life among the sailors and thieves is happy, wild, and free. He learns to sail, to fit in with the crew, and to cheat at cards. There isn’t a course he can’t chart, or a job he can’t design.
But Clayton can’t navigate love, nor can he plan for the whims of his heart. Bold and direct and often stubborn, Clayton’s uncharted heart will plot its own course, bound for a union with two men who need him as much as he does them.
Together Clayton, Peter, and Jorge will discover the heart has no need of map and compass.
Ten places I’d like to visit and why
Hi Prism Book Alliance! I’m happy to be here J And happy to share my “ten places I’d like to visit and why.”
Here they are (in no particular order):
Kawachi Fuji Gardens in Kitakyushu, Japan. Where apparently there are long tunnels of wisteria blossoms that you can walk through. Because it looks magical and so cool, and I’d love to be in a place that takes the celebration of natural beauty to such an insane level.
Lascaux caves, Montignac, France. Self explanatory, I think. The cave art! How awesome it would be to be able to see those images in person. Sadly, if I ever do make it to France, I’d have to settle for Lascaux II.
Orkney Islands, Scotland. Seriously, have you seen this place? It looks so cool. Such dramatic landscapes and ancient culture, I would love to go there.
Churchill, Manitoba, Canada. I’d love to see the northern lights, and the polar bears, from the rolling hotel called “The Tundra Lodge.” It looks so fun and wild! I’ve never seen the northern lights.
Punaluu Black Sand Beach, Hawaii. Seriously, I am a beach person to my bones. And yet, I’ve never had black sand between my toes! I think I’d love it. Also I’d just love to go to Hawaii in general (wouldn’t you?)
Tanzania, Africa. Mainly I’d just love to see part of Africa, and I think my dream vacation in Africa would involve a safari. How cool would it be to ride through those lands in a jeep, taking pictures of the scenery and wildlife?! I’d totally be one of those dorky tourists, too, with a fanny pack and a big wide hat.
The Pyramids at Giza, Egypt. Similar to the Lascaux caves, these are just things I’ve seen in books and movies for so long, and I’d love to actually be there and see them in person. Also Egypt looks like a really cool place, and I’d love to explore it.
The Ice Hotel, Jukkasjarvi, Sweden. You know, that super cool ice hotel that pops up on social media or in random movies? Surely you’ve seen pictures of it. I would stay there and drink vodka while wrapped in furs. And I’d be happy.
Shipwreck Beach, Zackynthos, Greece. My husband is Greek, and has been here, and he tells me that there are also cool caves to explore around this beach. It looks gorgeous, even without any caves. I should probably never go there, because I might not want to come back ever.
Redwood National Park, California. Because it looks unbelievable. I love hiking, and I love the woods, and I think going to Redwood would be super fun. Also I’d love to know what it smells like there. Is it cedar-y, or more like pine? It’s such a different kind of forest than what I’m used to. Also imagine the crappy pictures I could take! Fantastic.
Of all these places, the only ones I’m likely to visit are Greece and California. But I can dream J
I probably could have made a lit of a hundred places I’d love to visit!
How about you? Where would YOU most like to go?
The Irish Lady’s gangway was up, and I had a flash of panic. Was I too late? I caught a glimpse of Peter on deck, and called out to him. “Sir! Peter Simpson!”
He turned and strode back to the rail, a light in his eyes and a smile on his face. My trunk seemed suddenly much easier to haul.
A large black man lowered the gangway, and looked me over as I struggled up it, raising an eyebrow at my large case. He wore his hair in long twisted locks, and his shirt, open at the chest, revealed heavy glistening muscles. I swallowed hard. Was this a ship full of temptation? Would I spend my entire time here aroused and useless?
“You came!” Peter rushed to me, not hiding his excitement.
I nodded, smiling.
“I’m so glad.” He brushed his fingers over my cheek in a move much too affectionate for public display. I glanced at the large man, but he’d turned away.
“Come, I’ll get you settled in and explain your position.” Peter hoisted one end of my trunk, and led us toward the hatch.
I felt as if I had to ask him, before I went below, exactly what kind of situation I was signing on to here. “Just what sort of a ship is this, precisely? I’m sure you aren’t an entirely reputable merchant?”
He dropped his side of the trunk, and I feared I’d erred. Perhaps that was too forward a thing to ask. But his crooked grin told me he was not offended. “Is that a problem?”
Good lord, he was sexy. His chin was shadowed with a fine dark stubble, and his hair was gathered at the top of his head in some sort of ridiculous knot, which only accentuated his chocolate brown eyes and thick brows. “No…” I smiled. “But you’ll have to teach me.”
His mouth opened on a gasp. Finally, I’d unbalanced him.
“Gladly,” he rasped, and picked up the trunk again.
