 Today I’m sharing an excerpt from Lachlann’s Legacy by Ashley York




Hidden secrets could tear them apart as fast as their passion drove them together

 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.

TAGLINE: An 11th-century highlander must deceive a lovely woman living among outcasts in order to save his priory, but it’s his heart that’s truly at stake…



He couldn’t read her emotions this time but she didn’t move away. Instead she sat back, remaining close enough for him to still touch her.

“Forgive me. I have wanted to taste ye since the first time I met ye calling for Finn at the fair.”

Her eyes widened in her innocence. Innocence. Virginity. He gasped in frustration, confronting himself with where he was going with this...this…seduction.

Her concern was immediate, and she leaned close, checking his pallor. “Is it yer side?”
