Welcome back to the penultimate Medieval Monday of 2018 and our Family theme. I’m delighted to welcome Ashley York back to the blog. Her excerpt is from
Daughter of the king – book three in The Derbfine Series
As if reading her mind, he said, “Ye enjoy yer uncle’s tales more than the other lasses.”
Her defenses went up and she straightened her back. “I am more capable than the other lasses.”
“Ah, so ye have said.”
“I could…I could easily be one of those riding along with him.” She watched him closely. “If I were a man.”
“If ye were a man.”
Darragh’s expression was intense, as if he were looking right into her soul.
Hope you’ve enjoyed this blog hop. Next week Ashley is going to be back on her blog but if you missed commenting on any of the excerpts, go back and do so now. They start on Mary Morgan’s blog.
A mistaken identity. A gruesome murder. The uniting of two powerful clans.
Trained as a warrior…
Brighit of Clonascra is the only daughter of the fearsome overking, Sean, but despises the trappings and demands of womanhood. She’s far more comfortable training for battle than preparing a meal. Long held alliances require she set aside selfish dreams and take Darragh as her husband. The union intended to promote peace between the clans is interrupted by the shocking murder of a neighboring king and she quickly discovers there are far worse things than being wed.
Trained to be king…
Darragh of Drogheda has no wish to follow in the path of his father, Tadhg, but he is an obedient son and supports his father’s plans. His marriage to Brighit, however, will be no hardship at all since he finds her most intriguing especially when she fights him at every turn. A she-warrior indeed. Her persistent dismissal of him merely blows the fire aflame and sets him down the path to discovery of all her most tightly held secrets.
When she stands accused of the murder, can they finally come to an agreement that will give them each what they truly desire?
