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.

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.
