Medieval Monday – Ashley York

As Medieval Mondays continue, this week you will find the next snippet from my newest book (available now for pre-order), A Wee Highland Predicament  on Ashley York’s blog.

Below you’ll find a snippet from Ashley’s, Eyes of the Seer, book two in The Derbfine Series.


“I can bring ye more.” The lass stood before him still. “Ye look to be done in.”

Marcán was not about to get into a discussion with a slave. He preferred to stay away from them in general. “I do not believe Philip wanted ye to tarry here.”

With a nod, she turned about just as the door to the roundhouse swung open. Like a cool breath of refreshing air, Astrid came toward him. She noticed the other woman, surprise evident, and seemed to assess her as they crossed paths.


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.

      I have to agree. The cover is beautiful. The background image is of one of my favorite places, The Cliffs of Moher, on the west coast of Ireland. It’s not very far from my husband’s home and we try to go every time we’re there.
