Series: The Order of the Scottish Thistle Book 1
Author: Ashley York
Genre: Historical Romance
Hidden secrets could tear them apart as fast as their passion drove them together
Blurb: On the Moray coast in Scotland…
Ethne’s genuine and caring nature makes her invaluable to her brother as his son’s caretaker, but he and his wife treat her as little more than their servant. When she learns their tribal leader would use her chaste status for his own purposes, Ethne plans to escape and reluctantly accepts the help of Lachlann—a handsome pilgrim she only just met at the local faire.
Despite her independent spirit, Ethne feels drawn to Lachlann. Her instincts say his intentions are honorable, but can she trust him with her heart?
Raised by his godfather with few clues to his family’s past, Lachlann values his freedom and the brotherhood of his highlander kin. Disguised as a pilgrim on a mission for the priory, he encounters Ethne, a warm, intelligent maiden whose courage in the face of a loveless marriage awakens an intense need to protect her.
Unfortunately, Ethne is one of the very people he must deceive to explore the cave system containing clues to the lost treasure he seeks. But he cannot abandon her to an uncertain fate—or deny the simmering tension between them.
With religious prejudice running high and both of them facing tests of loyalty, Lachlann and Ethne may realize the only way to fight for their futures is to surrender… to each other.

The damp cold seeped into the chieftain’s tired bones. He tugged the wolfskin mantle tighter around his length as he paced the uneven terrain. At two score and eight, he was getting too old for traipsing along the open glen, sleeping on the stone-riddled ground each night. He longed for the peace of his own bed, his wife’s warmth beside him.
A young child being dragged toward him yanked Colbán, chieftain of Clan MacDonell, out of his woolgathering. He looked to be the right age, about four winters. Although the boy was filthy with smoke and ash from the burning huts, Colbán knew in his gut it was the right child. He recognized the dark hair of his father, just sprouting after a close shearing, and the bright green eyes of his lovely mother.
God rest her soul.
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 Ireland, the romantic Scottish Highlands, or the battle fields of Hastings, her characters fight hard and play hard. Good or evil, primary or secondary, they’ll yank at your emotions and make it hard to put her books down.
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.
