The updated editions of Flatiron Five Tattoo (previously called Secret Heart Ink) have now been published at all portals.
The new editions have the beautiful new covers and revised titles shown below.
The contents are the same as the original versions, but I added a reader letter and introduction to Just One Snowbound Night. If you bought the books in their earlier editions, you should be able to download the new edition as an update. It will over-write the old edition, so you have to choose whether to have the old one or the new one.
At Kindle, it’s a little more complicated as they don’t always push out updates. I’ve asked them to do as much with this one – just as they said they would with Flatiron Five Fitness – but you may have to request it at your end, as well.
Next week, I’ll update the F5F Character list.

Three of my paranormal romance series were enrolled in Kindle Unlimited in April. They’ve now finished their term there, and are available at all portals again.
Visit the Dragonfire Novels website to learn more about Dragonfire, featuring dragon shifter heroes, and the Prometheus Project, featuring fallen angel heroes.
Visit the Dragons of Incendium website to learn more about my dragon shifter princesses from space.
The Wolf & the Witch is the first book in a new medieval Scottish trilogy called Blood Brothers, which will be launching next April! I just love the cover and am really enjoying Max and Alys together.
Denied his rightful legacy, Maximilian de Vries devised a plan to avenge himself upon his father and see his own future secured. Allied with his two forgotten half-brothers, he descends upon ancient and mysterious Kilderrick, determined to claim it at any price. A woman rumored to be a witch is the sole one bold enough to defy him but Maximilian has a solution—he will take her to wife, whether she be willing or nay, and seal his claim.
But this powerful warrior has yet to match wits with Alys Armstrong, a maiden with a thirst for vengeance and a fury that might exceed his own. Alys has no intention of capitulating to the proud and illegitimate son of the rogue who stole everything from her, and she does not share his avowed compulsion to fight fair.
Bitter enemies from the outset, Maximilian and Alys’ match is a battle of wills. When anger turns to passion, will either of them be able to resist temptation? And when Kilderrick itself is in peril, will they be able to join forces to save the unexpected love they have come to value above all else?
Coming April 26, 2021
Pre-order available at some portals:

Here’s a new shopping option if you collect print editions of my books.
If you live in the US, you can order my books directly from Ingrams, the company that produces my print books, through my affiliate shop at Bookshop.org. This has the advantage of lower shipping costs and since my books are print-on-demand, Ingrams will be making them just to fill your order. I also earn a little bit of affiiliate income by sending you there. The books are organized in collections by series.
From July 15 through August 15, I’m participating in a 99¢ & Free PNR, fantasy and urban fantasy promotion. What a great way to find a new read! You’ll find both Kiss of Fire and Wyvern’s Mate included in the books on the landing page as well as over 100 other titles!
Kiss of Fire and Wyvern’s Mate are both discounted to 99¢. They’re enrolled in KDP Select until July 22, and will republished at all portals after that, also at the 99¢ price point.
Visit the landing page and find your next read!
If you pre-ordered Rhys and Lila’s book, you might have had a notification from your portal of choice that the publication date for Dragon’s Heart has been delayed. Events of this spring really trashed my ability to write and that’s put me behind schedule. I’m working well now, but still need to make up that delay.
I believe the book will be done in a week, so technically, it could be uploaded and published on the 22nd. I don’t want to bypass proofreading on it, though, as there are so many details to pull together. (There are a lot of dragon shifters on the stage!) So, I’ve added three weeks to the schedule, and booked two proofreaders. I’m aiming to have everything locked and loaded with time to spare. The paperback should be available a little sooner than the ebook, too.
I’ll dive right into Dragon’s Mate to get Hadrian’s story done on time, then we should be back on track.
Thanks for your patience. I think you’re going to love this book. I do!
Remember that there’s a Pinterest board for the DragonFate series, which is a work-in-progress. I’ve been adding images for Rhys and Lila.
Now through July 14, The Renegade’s Heart is a free series starter!
She would risk everything to save his soul…
Released from the captivity of the Fae, Murdoch Seton wants nothing more than to forget his lost years. Undertaking a quest to recover treasure stolen from his family seems the perfect solution – but Murdoch is not counting upon a curious maiden who holds both the secret to the theft and his sole redemption.
Isabella is outraged to find her brother’s keep besieged by a renegade knight—especially one who is too handsome for his own good or hers. After a single encounter, she becomes convinced that his cause is just and decides to unveil the true thief, never imagining that their single shared kiss has launched a battle for Murdoch’s very soul.
As the treacherous Fae move to claim Murdoch forever, Isabella seeks to heal the knight who has stolen her heart. But will Murdoch allow her to take a risk and endanger herself? Or will he sacrifice himself to ensure Isabella’s future?
A #1 Kindle Bestselling Title!

Many of my dragons and angels are currently enrolled in KDP Select, which means you can read them free with a Kindle Unlimited subscription. The enrollment term ends July 22, and I’ve decided not to renew the enrollment of these books. I’ll be republishing them at all portals again on July 23.
So, you are reading the Dragonfire Novels, or the Dragons of Incendium, or the Prometheus Project in Kindle Unlimited, get those books onto your Kindles now! July 22 is coming soon.
If you shop at other portals, the books will be available there again at the end of this month.
You can see my paranormal romances on my two dedicated websites: The Dragonfire Novels and the Dragons of Incendium.
This weekend, I republished my medieval romances at all portals, and rebuilt the links here on Delacroix website. The series data is still populating at some portals, but the books are there.
I did my usual metadata check – this is a good opportunity to confirm BISAC categories, keywords, and add any missing ones, plus update the formatting on the book description if necessary. I also double-checked the pricing in all territories to make it more consistent across all portals. It’s kind of interesting because the price of each book converts to other currencies when you first publish it. Over time, there ends up being a lot of variation, since currencies change value against each other. Each portal lets you over-ride the conversion and manually set prices in a certain number of territories (13 at Amazon, 16 at Kobo, 51 at Apple, many at GooglePlay) so I updated that this time. Each portal has different parameters and rules about pricing, though, so it ends up being a bit of a jigsaw puzzle. You should find that my full-length romances are $4.99US, $6.49CA, $6.49AU, £3.49 and EU4.49 at all portals.
I also made some pricing changes at Ingrams, which should make it easier for your local bookstore to stock or order trade paperback copies of my books.
These are the series that are wide again:
The Rogues of Ravensmuir
The Jewels of Kinfairlie
The True Love Brides
The Brides of Inverfyre
The Bride Quest
The Champions of St. Euphemia
Unicorn Bride and Pearl Beyond Price
Rogues & Angels
I also have a sale this week, and will tell you about that free series starter Thursday.
Tomorrow, I have another bit of news about KU to share.
