A Medieval romance at its best! Talented storyteller Ashley York's novella The Irish Warrior – A Norman Conquest, really pleased me! It's a real page turner, a splendid tale with romance, danger and intrigue! I loved her two main characters Thomasina and Sean. I really spent a day following their journeys filled with twists and turns. It tells the story of Thomasina aka Tommy, who disguised as a young boy, is seeking her missing brother. Along the way, she meets Sean, a warrior, who started giving her advice on how to act properly as a young man. Soon, he will discover her secret and this will create some funny moments and awkward situations. But, Sean, who has lost the only woman he loved, has no interest in loving again.

'The Irish Warrior' by Ashley York is book 2.5 in the "The Norman Conquest" series. This is the story of Thomasina MacDonell "Tommy" and Sean O'Cisoghe . This is a standalone book but it does pick up the story of Sean after he was turned away from Brighit in the "The Gentle Knight" series. I so enjoyed this book...each book I think gets better than the next! Tommy has had a tough time of it with her drunk father. If not for her brother who protected her, it could have been worse. On one such issue with her father where he is trying to marry her off to an old man to pay off a debit of his she runs away. While on the run and looking for her horse that her father sold she runs in to Sean who by chance has her horse. Sean still feeling hurt from Brighit not wanting him is stunned when he runs into 'Tommy' dressed as a lad. It doesn't take him long to figure out she is a women and just as fast to know he wants her! This was emotional joy to read their story! Another great book by Ms. York!!

I have not read the earlier books in this series, but I will as soon as time allows. This is a medieval novella and I enjoyed it. Sean O'Cisoghe was in England to see Brighit, his childhood love, married. Brighit has always thought of Sean as a brother, to his dismay. She tells him there is someone for him but it was never her. While returning to the coast he encounters Thomasina, dressed as a lad, claiming his rented horse is her stolen horse. He takes her with him to the coastal town where he rented the horse and plans to hire a boat to return to Ireland. They encounter trouble and have to leave the town. While hiding in a cave she knows, her brother and his friends come and agree to help him get to the coast and a boat. That is a very simplistic description as I don't like plot spoilers, especially in a short book. However, I liked watching this warrior lose his heart while trying to help Tommy. While not a great book, it is a good story and this author has potential. I will read her other books.

would recommend THE IRISH WARRIOR to anyone who enjoys historical romances featuring swoon-worthy heroes who voice a sexy brogue "Have I told ye how much I admire yer lovely arse?... This fine arse," he grasped her bottom as he spoke, "filled my dreams even before I caught ye in the woods, baring yer bottom..." "So ye did see my naked bottom?" He groaned, pulling her in tight against him leaving no doubt what he was feeling. "Yea. It damned near killed me and seeing ye in those trews, outlining each rounded cheek.... "I lusted after ye, Thomasina. Something fierce." THE IRISH WARRIOR by Ashley York is an enjoyable historical romance that begins with Roana, a horse. Combine the steed with romance, danger, deceit, betrayals and the bad blood between the Normans and Saxons, and what results is a captivating, very entertaining read! This is the first book that I've ever read by this author, but I do not plan on it being the last. Even though it's the third book in the author's Norman Conquest series, it works very well as standalone if that is your preference. This is the story of Sean O'Cisoghe and Thomasina MacDonell. I liked both the hero and the heroine. Their romance is sweet and hot. As the story opens, the hero has attended the wedding of the love of his life and now only wants to return home to wallow in the pain of his broken heart. He had paid to use a horse while there. Unbeknownst to Sean, that horse actually belonged to a young woman named Thomasina. Her father, who imbibes too much and owes many debts as a result, had sold her horse to pay one of his debts. Even worse, her father has also betrothed Thomasina to an old lecher to pay a debt. Thomasina refuses to accept this. Disguised as a young lad, Thomasina unsuccessfully tries to reclaim her horse from Sean and their adventure begins. I found this novella to be a very enjoyable read. You will want to read it in one sitting. I would recommend THE IRISH WARRIOR to anyone who enjoys historical romances featuring swoon-worthy heroes who voice a sexy brogue.

A Novella, which is a thrill ride of excitement. Another exciting and enticing tale of passion and finding true love. A true treasure! Ms. York is a consummate storyteller who writes fast paced takes of the Norman Conquest, the struggles, challenges, and finding a HEA, amidst turmoil, danger, betrayal and a country torn apart. Compelling and powerful. A very enjoyable and satisfying read! Another hit my Ms. York! *Personal buy* Rating: 4.5 Heat rating: Mild Reviewed by: AprilR

Writer Ashley York is the best thing to hit Medieval historical romance in a long time! Her third installment, The Irish Warrior, in her acclaimed Norman Conquest series will resonate with readers, both old and new, as her journey into this fascinating time period continues. This novella was the ultimate package combining a wonderful story with a well researched historical framework. A witty, strong hero paired with a spunky heroine prove a formidable force against Ms. York's trademark depraved villains. I can think of no better way to enjoy my time than hunkered down with a Ashley York tale and The Irish Warrior did not disappoint!
