Welcome back to Medieval Monday! It’s Week Five of our “Family” theme, and I’m excited to feature an excerpt from Daughter of the King (Book 3 in the Derbfine Series) by the amazing Ashley York.
If you’re following my excerpt from Flight of the Raven, you can find the fifth snippet on Ashley’s blog: https://www.ashleyyorkauthor.com/blog
Now, let’s enjoy her fifth snippet:
“We’ll be wed.”
He tipped his head. “Is there a distinction?”
“I will not only be yers. Ye will be mine.”
She sensed his intake of breath rather than heard it. Darragh took her hand, gently leading her away from the others.
“And how d’ye treat what is yers?”
A note from Ashley: I loved writing about Brighit and Darragh. Follow along next week when I’ll be visiting Sherry Ewing’s blog: https://sherryewing.com/blog/
Remember to visit Ashley’s blog and comment on my snippet for a chance to win Flight of the Raven (or if you already have a copy, your choice of another of my books)!
A little more about Daughter of the King:
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?
