I’m delighted to welcome Ashley York to the blog this week with her intriguing excerpt from Eyes of the Seer (and isn’t this a gorgeous cover!). I hope you enjoy it.
Marcán was not surprised that Merewyn’s smile was so fetching. In fact, there was nothing about her he did not care for. This may be a slave he took for himself.
“Ye’ve been given to me,” Astrid said.
Astrid would own her? Then she would definitely be off limits and his disappointment was acute.
Something stirred at Astrid’s tone. It had sharpened. Marcán looked on, intrigued by this unexpected turn of events. So much so he felt a second wind, his tiredness leaving.
You can find Ashley’s next excerpt on CathyMcRae’s blog, and if you’re wondering whether Lucy has finished giving Roger a tongue-lashing head over to Ashley’s blog and find out www.ashleyyorkauthor.com
In ancient Ireland, men and women take to the legends for answers. Different-colored eyes are the mark of a Seer, it is said, and those who can see the future are in league with the devil. They cannot be suffered to live.
He wishes to prove himself…
Marcán of Clonascara bears the bloodline of Brian Boru, the legendary high king, and his prowess as a warrior has earned him great respect. But he was born with different-colored eyes, and there are some who would have him suffer a Seer’s fate. His fiercest adversary is Beibhinn, mother to Diarmuid, his close friend and king, and Astrid, the woman who holds his heart. If Astrid ever showed him any interest, he would fight Beibhinn and any army to wed her.
She is desperate to escape…
Astrid is sick of her mother’s belittling, but her brother is in no hurry to see her married, so she decides to see to her own match-making. The man she approaches quickly reveals his lack of honor, but her overbearing mother pushes her to wed him anyway. When Astrid discovers Marcán’s love for her, she realizes that what she wants has been in front of her all along. True happiness awaits them, but only if they can put a stop to her mother’s plans.
