PNR in Kindle Unlimited

Fallen, #1 of the Prometheus Project of urban fantasy romances by Deborah CookeI’m going to enroll some titles in Kindle Unlimited, which means that they have to be available exclusively at Amazon. I have a number of promotions booked this month, which will influence both the timing of series going into KU and (frankly) how many series go into the program.

I’ve decided that the Dragonfire Novels, the Dragons of Incendium and the Prometheus Project will definitely be enrolled, probably the first week of July.

Wyvern's Mate, book #1 in the Dragons of Incendium series of paranormal romances by Deborah CookeIt’s the paranormal and fantasy work that’s on the move. I plan to enroll my time travels in KU in July as well. I’m picking away at the unpublishing so you’ll see books disappearing from the various portals. Incendium, for example, is already unpublished at Nook and GooglePlay. There are collections in all three series included in a promotion at Kobo that goes through June 30, so they’ll be available there until that’s completed. The time travels are included in a promotion at Kobo that will run June 27 to July 4 so can’t move to KU until after that.

Coven of Mercy, a short story and vampire romance by Deborah CookeBut I’ve already started enrolling titles. The two short works linked to my dragon PNR series – Coven of Mercy and An Elegy for Melusine – are now enrolled in KU.

Beguiled has been unpublished from other portals and is available only at Amazon, because those two shorts are included in it, but that collection is not in KU.

Snowbound, #1 of the Secret Heart Ink series of contemporary romances by Deborah CookeSecret Heart Ink is also enrolled in KU now, and I’ve dropped the prices on all five of these books to 99cents, too.

I’m still thinking about my historical romances. We’ll see how this month’s sales go first.

If you’re missing any of these titles in your collection and prefer to shop at other portals than Amazon, this is a good chance to grab those books.

DragonFate Covers

Maeve's Book of Beasts, book 1 of the DragonFate series of paranormal romances by Deborah CookeThe DragonFate series features the Pyr‘s battle against Maeve, the dark Fae queen who wants to exterminate all species she considers unnatural (because they are half human). We met Maeve in Firestorm Forever and glimpsed her souvenir gallery of species she had already eliminated. In this series, she targets the Pyr and other species in the world – and the Pyr come to the defense of shifters like themselves, led by the spark of the firestorm. What I like about this series is that there are lots of paranormal creatures in the cast, as well as some humans and an opinionated ghost.

Dragon's Kiss, book #2 of the DragonFate series of paranormal romances by Deborah CookeWhat I like about this series is that the heroines will also have special powers of their own, and this is going to complicate matters with their dragon shifter heroes and destined mates. We’ll see an over-arching romance between Melusine and Theo, one that is complicated both by her special powers and the persistent ghost of her dead husband, Raymond. There will also be another over-arching romance between a very human librarian and a hot vampire who is part of the team battling Maeve. We’ll also explore the origins of the Pyr. This is a big canvas and I’m excited about all my plans and possibilities.

Dragon's Heart, book 3 of the DragonFate series of paranormal romances by Deborah CookeMy original scheme was for DragonFate to be four books. The working titles were Hot-Blooded, Spell-Bound, Star-Crossed and Dusted, but I’ve since learned it would be better for discoverability if the titles to include the word Dragon. Donna Grant has also published a dragon shifter book called Hot-Blooded (as well as one called Dragonfire) in the interim, so it’s better to avoid confusion.

I’ve gone with Dragon’s Kiss, Dragon’s Heart and Dragon’s Mate for the first three books. The pre-quel is called Maeve’s Book of Beasts and will launch in August. Dragon’s Kiss will be published in October, followed by Dragon’s Heart in January and Dragon’s Mate in April.

Dragon's Mate, book 4 of the DragonFate series of paranormal romances by Deborah CookeOne of the things I really like about these covers is that the artist used the colours of each Pyr in his dragon form on his book cover. Kristofer (Dragon’s Kiss) is peridot and silver in his dragon form, and has blond hair and blue eyes in his human form. Rhys (Dragon’s Heart) is garnet and silver in his dragon form, and has dark hair and dark eyes in his human form. Hadrian (Dragon’s Mate) is emerald and silver in his dragon form, and has auburn hair and green eyes in his human form.

Another thing I noticed later which I think is funny – the model chosen by the artist for Rhys on Dragon’s Heart is the same model I chose for Some Like It Hot in the Flatiron Five series. He looks a bit different with his shirt off and a dragon tattoo. I think it’s also possible that the model on Dragon’s Mate is the same one used on Some Guys Have All the Luck, but am not positive about that. This is why so many covers show the models without their faces, but I like to see their eyes.

Pre-order links are populating now and will be added to the landing pages for each book as they go live.

This series lives on the Dragonfire website, since it’s set in the same world. You can find it here.

One Knight’s Return

One Knight’s Return, a new medieval romance release from my alter-ego, Claire Delacroix, is now available.

One Knight's Return, #2 of the Rogues & Angels series of medieval romances by Claire DelacroixKnight and crusader Quinn de Sayerne vowed never to return home while his villainous father drew breath. Twenty years after his departure, he is notified of his father’s death and summoned by his liege lord to claim his family holding. But his overlord has a stipulation: Quinn must wed Melissande, the beauteous heiress of neighboring Annossy. Quinn hoped to make a match based on more than mutual animosity, but he is resolved to win the heart of his lady wife, at any cost.

Melissande cannot believe that her liege lord has not only compelled her to break an old betrothal but wed her to a ruffian—and granted the seal of Annossy to him, despite her expertise. It is the dream of Quinn’s father brought to fruition, for the holdings will be merged just as he long schemed. But her overlord cannot be defied and she finds herself the chattel of this rough knight, despite her every protest.

Can Quinn win his lady’s reluctant heart? Or is he doomed to lose Melissande forever when her betrothed returns?

An earlier version of this story was published as My Lady’s Champion. What’s different? Ha. Pretty much everything – except Quinn, who I still adore. 🙂 The book has been completely revised, and there are new scenes linking the company of Rogues & Angels to the story. Tulley has a niece now, too.

In Serpent’s Kiss, Thorolf is targeted by the Slayer Chen to complete an ancient spell, and caught between love and duty. According to Chandra, his destined mate and a known thief, Thorolf’s partner Viv has lied to him and is allied with Chen. Worse, Chandra insists that the solution lies in Thorolf’s past. Can he trust the firestorm to guide him to the truth, even if it means bonding with a goddess?

In Firestorm Forever, Sloane, the Apothecary of the Pyr, is determined to save humans and the earth from a deadly plague brought into the world by the Slayer, Jorge. His only ally is Samantha, a researcher who hates the Pyr because her son was killed by the virus. When the firestorm sparks between them, can they move beyond physical attraction and their own emotional wounds to work together to save the world? The big finish to the Dragonfire series includes two more firestorms—those of Drake and Marco, the Sleeper—and the combined efforts of all the Pyr to defeat the Slayers forever.

Schedule Updates

Some Like It Hot, book #7 in the Flatiron Five series of contemporary romances by Deborah CookeI’ve been moving my schedule around to accommodate the new publication date of Bad Case of Loving You. I also want to start some new projects.

One of the results of this reorganization is that Some Like It Hot has been moved to a February 2020 publication date. That will take my contemporary romance publication schedule back to two titles a year. (Theo and Lyssa messed me up, but in 2020 we’ll be on track again.)

Under the Mistletoe, a contemporary Christmas romance and #4 in the Secret Heart Ink series by Deborah CookeThe contemporary romance after that (summer 2020 pub date) will be a Coxwell book. I also want to set some romances at Flatiron Five West, and will be attending RWA National in San Francisco in July 2020 with the plan of doing some research there.

I’m planning to finish up Under the Mistletoe and publish it this fall, so it will be my 2019 holiday romance read. First, Theo and Lyssa, then Chynna.

Unicorn Bride, a medieval romance by Claire Delacroix, 2019 new editionAs for Claire’s books, there will be One Knight’s Return this month, which has proven to be another one of those little republication projects that ended up taking a huge amount of time. (The second half of the book is all new and the first half has significant changes. It would have been faster to just write a new book!) Then there will be a republication of Unicorn Bride in August, which really will be a republication and very close to the original.

That’s where we stand!

New Edition of Unicorn Bride Coming Soon

Unicorn Bride, a medieval romance by Claire Delacroix, in its original mass market editionUnicorn Bride was the second book I sold to Harlequin Historicals and it was originally published in June 1994. The cover on the right is the original mass market edition, with a cover painted by Judy York. I loved this book, which is set in what is now southern France, and was very pleased to discover that I still love it just as much as I did almost thirty years ago.

So, I’m very excited to be preparing this book for republication in a new edition. There are a few changes, but no so many that I think this version merits a new title. It’ll be published in August, and is available for pre-order now. The new cover is by Dar Albert and I love it to pieces.


Unicorn Bride, a medieval romance by Claire DelacroixFor generations, legend had stalked the battlements of the fortress Montsalvat. And now Alienor de Perpignan found herself promised in marriage to the man at the heart of the oft-whispered tales: Dagobert, Count de Pereille. A near-mythic being rumored to be a beast by day – and more than a man by night.

That Alienor was his true-destined bride, Dagobert de Pereille had no doubt. Indeed, with her exotic beauty and blade-bright spirit, she could be none other. But could he who bore the mark – and the curse – of ancient kings ever trust her enough to open his heart?

Dragonfire Reunion Today!

Dragonfire Reunion, the third Dragonfire digital bundle including Flashfire, Ember's Kiss, Harmonia's Kiss, Kiss of Danger, Kiss of Darkness and Kiss of Destiny of the Dragonfire Novels series of paranormal romances by Deborah Cooke Dragonfire Reunion is the third digital bundle in The Dragonfire Novels: The Complete Series and includes the books that feature the gathering of outcasts and outsiders of the Pyr, to aid in the Dragon’s Tail Wars between the Pyr, dragon shifters pledged to defend the treasures of the earth, and the evil Slayers, dragon shifters bent on destroying both the Pyr and the humans they protect.

In Flashfire, Lorenzo has no interest in joining his fellow dragon shifters until his destined mate, Cassie, tracks him down in the hope of photographing one of the Pyr. Lorenzo makes a deal with her, never guessing that the defense of his mate will persuade him to embrace the powers he’s denied for centuries.

In Ember’s Kiss, Brandon distrusts his shifting abilities, but one look at Liz sets his dragon on fire. Liz understands the burden of a powerful legacy all too well, since she’s on the run from her own—can Liz and Brandon work together to defeat the evil Slayer who has cursed Brandon, and claim the promise of the firestorm?

In Harmonia’s Kiss, the Dragon’s Tooth Warriors return to the place of their enchantment to battle an ancient and wily foe. They thought Cadmus defeated before: will he defeat them in this fight or will they destroy his wickedness forever?

In Kiss of Danger, the Dragon Legion travel back in time with the aid of the darkfire crystal, in search of their firestorms, their mates, and their lost pasts. Alexander has a second chance with his beloved Katina, but she has secrets that challenge his trust.

In Kiss of Darkness, Damien finds his mate pregnant and captive in the underworld, but Petra’s influence is just as powerful as ever. Will the heartbreaker of the Pyr risk even his own heart to save his mate and their son?

In Kiss of Destiny, Thad follows the spark of the firestorm to his mate, a nymph named Aura. He enters the realm of the gods in pursuit of her heart, but finds a greater enemy, demanding vengeance upon the Pyr. Will Aura be the demanded price? Or can Thad save her, his firestorm, and the future of his kind?
