Johanna Lindsey, Diana Gabaldan, Arnette Lamb

Aside from two years spent in the wilds of the Colorado mountains, Ashley York is a proud life-long New Englander and a hardcore romantic. She has an MA in History which brings with it, through many years of research, a love for primary documents and the smell of musty old libraries. With her author's imagination, she likes to write about people who could have lived alongside those well-known giants from the past:

Lachlann's Legacy

Curse of the Healer
Eyes of the Seer
Daughter of the Overking

The Saxon Bride
The Gentle Knight
The Irish Warrior
The Seventh Son

The Bruised Thistle

Ashley York is 60% done with The Gentle Knight: EXCERPT: Peter tried not to notice the way Lachlann leaned his strong arm toward Brighit. Or the way she grabbed it and was pulled effortlessly to sit sideways in front of him.

An arm on either side of her, Lachlann pulled his reins to catch up with Peter. After seeing Brighit wrapping her arm around the man’s side and the man’s grin of satisfaction, Peter refused to look again.

“I have much to think on." Tadhg gave him a sideways glance. “I could be using some wisdom.”
Sean looked skyward before facing his friend. “Yea, Tadhg I will pray that ye receive wisdom.” He took a few steps away, heading back to the house, and added in a loud voice without looking back. “And a set of balls.”
Tadhg smiled. The man was the fiercest warrior in the clan. He had always been sorely infatuated with Brighit.”
Ashley York, The Seventh Son

“His first fatherly instinct ripped through his body when he realized with absolute clarity that he would lay down his life without the slightest hesitation if his daughter could just have lived.”
Ashley York, The Saxon Bride

“I thought to never have a family, to never have a woman I could love, physically, but when I met ye, I realized love was not merely a physical act. It was about being willing to lay down yer life for another.”
Ashley York, The Bruised Thistle
