Val’s World

When life changes, a strong woman will survive… escape into a world of love, mystery and adventure!


Love is a timeless essential of life. Throughout history, love in all its forms is a constant: be it passionate, caring, needy, manipulative, possessive or one that is strong enough to cross barriers of culture or faith. When two souls meet in a situation which takes them out of their normal social strata or into a shared danger, a relationship forms as the adventure unfolds.

betrayal (2)“A fine Regency epic set during a time when women were expected to be complaisant and humble towards their masters and ‘betters’; but Lydia Fletcher is not and will fight for what she believes in – honesty and trust.” Bestselling, award winning saga writer, Val Wood

  1. Thank you for you for visiting my blog Queen of Ordinary, and for your encouraging words. I tried to approve the comment and I kept getting, “This page cannot be displayed” messages. Sounds as if we are somewhat kindred spirits. 🙂

  2. I’ll have to join you for a read (when I get my English head back on 🙂 ) Valerie. I love my north east coast. Wish I could have brought some of the Polish weather back with me, though.

  3. Thank you for following my blog, Valerie! I had intended to get back with you long before now but got sidetracked with multiple issues along the way. I love the sound of your books!

  4. Hello again! I have nominated you for the Very Inspiring Blogger Award, as I love your blog and it’s great to see someone enjoying our great country. I have been to a few more places in Yorkshire recently and I have many more planned 😀

  5. Hello Valerie! I wanted to say thank you for visiting my blog on Jane (Austen) the Historian. Glad you liked it.

  6. Thank you, Val, for visiting our History Inspired blog this morning. Our American history is so rich with stories, it’s a shame they’re not more widely used in romance. But, I’m trying to change that. I’m glad you enjoyed my post. I love authors from England, Ireland and Australia.

      1. Eu postei o ano da criação do balão de meteorológico de látex, é só procurar no google, tem gente que sempre quer achar que tudo é verdade e nunca procura,ou pensa a reoimpts.Leebrando que na guerra houve enganos, até de tropa americanas atirarem contra os propios aliados, já que naquela época não havia a tecnologia que se tem hoje era tudo passível de erros.

  7. Hi Valerie — Thanks for stopping by my site: Journey to the Heights. I appreciate your time in reading my post. Sounds like you have some interesting pieces you have been working on.

  8. Thank you for visiting my blog, and this morning’s entry. Interesting blog you have also, glad to be introduced to it.

  9. Good Morning Valerie! Thanks for visiting my blog, The Historic Interpreter and I’m glad you enjoyed the post on Georgian Entertainments. I find the locations you use for your books interesting since one of the Living History personas that I portray, is an historical figure who was born and raised in Whitby before he immigrated to the colony of Georgia in 1774.

  10. Hi Val, Thank you for having a look at Manna House. Your bit of the NE sounds a bit like Cornwall with the rocks and smuggling my. It was next door neighbour when I lived in England and possibly my favourite county. Having said that I don’t know the NE of England at all. There are some parts of my bit of Catalonia that are Cornish looking, but the summers are longer and warmer…

    1. Hi
      I cannot honestly say that the northeast is known for its warm climate, but it is friendly and has an interesting history. Cornwall has many similarities and is a county I love to visit. I have never been to Catalonia but will visit one day. Thanks for popping by and every good wish for 2015!

  11. Thanks for jumping onto our blog today and liking my post. We are blogging newbies, and every single like makes me giddy. 🙂

  12. Thanks for dropping by my blog Val. Always great to connect with writers. I don’t know Yorkshire very well but spent half my childhood on Northumbrian beaches and they seem to have much in common.

  13. Hi Valerie, thanx so much for stopping by and liking my post. Means a lot! I love to write n read, so will be closely watching you. I love the lines….when life changes a strong woman will survive!
