It’s week six for our bad boy theme on Medieval Monday. Today, Ashley York will be sharing a snippet from Daughter of the Overking. Happy reading, my lovelies!
“Cathair is dead.”
The collective gasp from the crowd sent a sensation like cold fingers sliding up Brighit’s back.
The large man’s eyes seemed to bore into Tadhg’s. “No battle ensued. We found his body.”
Daughter of the Overking
Book Three in The Warrior Kings series
By Ashley York
A mistaken identity. A gruesome murder.
Trained as a warrior…
Brighit of Clonascra despises the trappings and demands of womanhood and is far more comfortable training for battle. 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 be king, 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 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—secrets that could cost him his life.
