My friend, award-winning Ashley York is here today for the final guest post for our theme Celebration. Next week the theme completes with each author posting the end of the extended excerpt on her own blog. But now, take a look at Ashley’s delightful snippet from her latest exciting Ireland-set story, Daughter of the Overking, Book 3 of the Warrior King Series.


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. 

Available in e-book or paperback

To read the penultimate snippet from my For This Knight Only, visit Ashley’s blog:


That word again… Darragh smacked his hand to his forehead. “Prepared. It sounds like a chicken rather than a wife.”

Tadhg smirked. “Mayhap we can resist a wee bit ourselves.”

Searching his father’s face for any show that he hadn’t understood his meaning was met by a beaming expression. “What d’ye have in mind?”

“A celebration. That’s what this should be.”
