Meet the author 

Award-winning author Ashley York writes historical romance full of passion and intrigue set in 11th and 12th century Ireland, Scotland, and England where life was wild and survival was never guaranteed.

Whether it’s in the mysterious ring forts of Éire, the Scottish Highlands, or the battle fields of Hastings, her characters fight hard and play hard. Good or evil, primary or secondary, they all evoke strong emotional responses.

Passionate about history and research, York may tweak some historical facts (like the location of the Baron’s Rebellion) but the flavor of the time is undeniable. With heroes and heroines you’ll want to read about again and again, her stories are fresh and unpredictable but still finish with a satisfying HEA.

My thoughts
Eyes of the Seer by Ashley York is yet another mesmerizing  hit by this author. THE DERBFINE series, #2, but can be read as a stand alone.  # 1, CURSE OF THE HEALER. I was enthralled by the cast of characters,  the plot and the writing style of Ms. York. She never disapoints, and knows how to weave fiction with history, seamlessly and effortlessly. The cast of characters are believable and seem sincere to me. It felt as if I was there with the cast, watching their daily lives, their struggles and their truimphs. The conflict was enough to hold my interest and kept me guessing right up to the end.  Danger, suspense,  mystery, romance, and passion make this story  a magnificent Medeival Romance. In other words I absolutely loved “Eyes of the Seer”.
Ashley York is a talented author whose stories will keep the reader suspended and glued to the pages of a great book. Way to go, Ms. York! ! You don’t wish to miss this fantastic series.
EYES OF THE SEER will have you turning pages, I shed a few tears for the heroine. Her mother was a such witch, not literally, but you get my draft, mean mother to everyone not just her beautiful daughter.  I can’t wait to see what Ashley York has in store for her readers next in this amazing series. Pick up your copy today!

Meet Ashley York:
 

Two things you should know about me right up front. I’m a hard-core romantic! And I

I believe true love does exist and once found, can transform your life from a solitary journey into a passionate adventure. Easier said than done sometimes but writing about the infinite number of possibilities, working out the exact when and where, and developing the character’s personal journey to get there, thrills me to no end.

I love history with larger than life heroes, chivalrous knights, lords and ladies, castles, manors, battles and conquests. These are the foundations for passionate, historical romance novels. That’s what I write.  There is nothing like the intense emotions sparked between a driven, hard-working medieval warrior and a feisty damsel in  a quandary, often not of her own making.

It only makes sense that I use my MA in History and all those research techniques to create romantic characters from the past. Although I’m writing fiction, I like to incorporate authentic places, events, and people, embellishing the past. I use real history but with an artistic flare.  I love research, especially from primary documents, and could get lost in them! You’ll discover a world of fiction wrapped around historical people and events in my stories. Some events you may recognize, some you may recognize but a little different than you remember, and some are just from my imagination.

I’m fascinated by the High Middle Ages in Scotland, England, and Ireland. There are so many world-changing events taking place here from their participation in the Crusades to the Battle of Hastings that permanently connected the islands to the continent. Before the Declaration of Arbroath, before William Wallace,  before the Doomsday Book, the area was ripe for great events and they never failed to deliver. It is on this combustible backdrop that I create characters with the same desires and motivations as we have today.

When I’m not writing, I enjoy cooking. It’s relaxing and I always like to find something new and easy. On Fridays I occasionally share simple recipes with Foody Friday. Sometimes entrees. Sometimes desserts. Sometimes snacks. Always delicious.

TODAY’S SPOTLIGHT~~CURSE OF THE HEALER~~ASHLEY YORK~~ with review

HAPPY RELEASE DAY, ASHLEY YORK, from the team at My Book Addiction and More!!

 Amazon Best selling Historical Romance!
Descendants of the High King Series is here…

After the death of Brian Boru in 1014, a legend arose of a healer so great she could raise a man from the dead, with a power so strong it could make any warrior the next high king of Éire…and to steal it away from her, he need only possess her.

Fated to be a healer…

Aednat has spent her entire life training to be the great healer, knowing she must remain alone. When she meets Diarmuid, the intense attraction she feels toward him shakes her resolve to believe in such a legend. If she gives in to the passion he ignites in her, can she settle for being less?

Destined to be his…

Diarmuid of Clonascra is renowned for his bravery in battle. Only one thing daunts him: the prospect of taking a wife. The safest course would be to keep his distance from Aednat, the bold, headstrong healer who’s far too tempting for his peace of mind. But his overking orders him to protect her from a group of craven warriors intent on kidnapping her to steal her power.

What starts as duty for Diarmuid quickly transforms into something more. Aednat’s power might be at risk, but so is his closed-off heart.

MY THOUGHTS:

The Curse of the Healer by Ashley York is the beginning of what promises to be a great new series, “The Descendants of the High King”.
What a fast paced, action thrilling tale of love, myths, legends, with the promise of love and a HEA.

“After the death of Brian Boru in 1014, a legend arose of a healer so great she could raise a man from the dead, with a power so strong it could make any warrior the next high king of Éire…and to steal it away from her, he need only possess her.” Adenat could possible be that healer, thus the story begins…..

This is the story of Dairmuid of Clonascra and Aednat. Dairmuid is a renowned fierce, fearless warrior. Dairmuid’s over king asks him to protect Aednat with his life if necessary, Dairmuid is a bit weary. Aednat is the cursed but great healer, she also has a disability, a clubbed foot, which has made people shun her her entire life and made her an outcast, her main focus is healing not falling in love. These two characters are worthy of love and prove their character when they are forced to marry out of desperation to keep Aednat safe. She is being haunted by a man wishing to possess her and claim the legend of the cursed healer. Which, could mean he would be the next high king of Eire and miraculous healed of his troubles. Is the legend true or just a myth? Will Dairmuid be able to save Aednat?
Fast paced, well written with well-developed and captivating character, and an intriguing, heart pounding plot. These characters captured by heart from the beginning and the plot held my attention throughout, as I read and hoped Dairmuid and Aednat found their HEA. Ashy York made the reader breathless with her characterization and her vivid descriptions. I was breathless when I thought Aednat would lose her life, she is a very resourceful lass, I must say. Although, her entire was for this moment in time. I can’t wait to read more of the secondary characters, and learn more of the other healers in this amazing series. I can not say enough about Ms. York, her writing or the beginning of what promise to be a captivating and intriguing series.
Ms. York is truly a talented author, one who never disappoints me, she always entices me to wait impatiently, I might add, for the next grand adventure. She is one of my favorite Medieval Romance authors. A definite must read and a true treasure. I foresee reading “Curse of the Healer” more than one time. A definite keeper! Highly recommended for fans of historical fiction, romance, legends, danger, mystery, suspense with a strong welled lass and a fearless warrior.
