Read an Excerpt from Dragon’s Kiss

Dragon's Kiss, book two of the DragonFate novels, a series of paranormal romances by Deborah CookeThe first full-length paranormal romance in my DragonFate series will be published in November. Pre-orders are live at most portals, and there’s a new excerpt posted on the Dragonfire Novels website. (DragonFate is set in the same world.) Meet the heroine, Bree, in the prologue from the upcoming Dragon’s Kiss.

Dragon shifter and Pyr warrior Kristofer follows the spark of his firestorm into Maeve’s dark realm, only to discover that it’s an illusion and a trap, not his firestorm at all. The fake mate who lures him into Fae is another species threatened by Maeve – Brianna is a Valkyrie, whose sister has been imprisoned by the dark queen. Brianna has to collect a Pyr soul to save her sister, but Kristofer doesn’t intend to die just yet. Trapped by Maeve, Kristofer and Brianna reluctantly join forces to save her sister—even when they discover that their skills are complementary, they know that there can be no future between a mortal Pyr and an immortal collector of souls. How much will either surrender to triumph over Maeve? And what will they do when the firestorm sparks in truth?

Signed Print Books

Since closing my store, I’ve been considering different ways to sell signed print books. I had set up one method here on the site, but it was a little bit buried – the links are at the bottom of the book series pages, but they’re easy to miss there.

To simplify things, I’ve put the Store tab back on the menu bar. There are bundles of print books priced there to include shipping from Canada to destinations in the US or Canada. I’ve collected entire series because postage from Canada can be high – it works out better if you buy multiple books at once. The postage is a guess, since it will vary based on your location – if it’s too much, I refund you the difference. I charge actual postage with no handling fee. If you live outside the US and Canada, you can just email me and we’ll work it out.

I have a LOT of titles, so they’re not all listed on the page. Again, if there’s a title you’d like—or a series—please just email me about it. If you’d prefer, you can comment on the Store page and ask any questions.

 

Newsletter Specials

Since I closed down my online store, I’ve been missing the ability to offer sales on ebooks to my newsletter subscribers. Yay! I’ve figured out a new way to do it! (I’m quite proud of myself, in case you haven’t noticed.)

Starting this month—starting tomorrow, when the October Dragons & Angels newsletter goes out—I’ll be featuring a title in each newsletter and offering it at a special price to newsletter subscribers when they buy it directly from me. The sale price will be available for a limited time.

In the newsletter section about the featured book, there will be a PayPal button. Click the button, pay for the ebook, and your ebook will be delivered by BookFunnel to your reading device of choice. If you live in Canada, you will be charged HST.

I’ve also figured out a way to sell signed print books from here on the website, but will talk about that tomorrow.

Don’t miss out! Subscribe to one – or all – of my newsletters today!

Heroes & Bad Boys is the newsletter for my Deborah Cooke contemporary romances.

Dragons & Angels is the newsletter for my Deborah Cooke paranormal romances.

Print Copies of Under the Mistletoe

I received my print copies of Under the Mistletoe! Aren’t they pretty?

Under the Mistletoe, book four of the Secret Heart Ink series of contemporary romances by Deborah Cooke

I had to laugh when I added a copy to my bookshelf. My plan with Secret Heart Ink was to write some shorter stories set in the Flatiron Five world, which could be published more quickly. Um. That didn’t work out so well. You can see how the stories kept getting longer by the widths of the spines.

Looks like I need to face the fact that I write longer books. 🙂

The landing page for the Apple Feel Good Romance Promotion is right here.


Some people will do anything for true love — even if they have to fake it.

Jen Maitland had no use for handsome guys with easy charm — until she met Zach. He’s the perfect fake date to end her mother’s matchmaking scheme before it starts. Besides, he’d probably just use her and leave her like her ex-fiancé did. At least that’s what Jen tells herself. The only problem is that Zach isn’t as predictable as he appears…

Zach Coxwell hates commitment, but loves a challenge. Like the pretty bar waitress who turned him down flat for a date — only to invite him to her family’s Thanksgiving dinner. Zach knows he can make Jen smile — and he’s betting that he can unravel her mysteries — even if he has to do it over candied yams.

A tofu turkey, a sister who threatens to have Zach’s love-child, the untimely appearance of a knitted avocado — and Zach’s discovery of her real motive — combine to turn Thanksgiving dinner into Jen’s worst nightmare. Zach, on the other hand, has the time of his life. And when he makes Jen smile, he finally finds a commitment he’s willing to make…but persuading Jen to believe him will take everything he’s got.

Audiobooks & Chirp

This month, two of my audiobooks are on sale. The Beauty Bride and The Crusader’s Bride have been discounted to $4.99US or equivalent at all portals except Amazon and Audible. It’s possible that Amazon will match the price (? I’m not sure how that works.)

There will also be a sale at Chirp on the audiobook for The Beauty Bride on October 21st. It will be 99cents there, which is a terrific deal.

Chirp is a website started by BookBub specifically to promote audiobooks. They are a retailer platform so you’d buy the audiobook from Chirp. Like BookBub, you can sign up for free and receive emails on special offers for audiobooks in your genre of choice.

Here’s the website for Chirp.

Edited to add – Lisa asked about Chirp for Canadian listeners. Chirp is currently available only to US listeners, because it’s new. I’m hoping they roll out their service in other territories once they iron out any kinks and have volunteered to beta-test for Canada, if they need beta-testers. Stay tuned!

And here’s the information about The Beauty Bride and The Crusader’s Bride. Happy listening!

The Beauty Bride, #1 of the Jewels of Kinfairlie series of medieval Scottish romances by Claire Delacroix

More cherished than gold are the Jewels of Kinfairlie, and only the worthiest may fight for their love…The Laird of Kinfairlie has unmarried sisters, each a gem in her own right. And he has no choice but to see them all wed in haste.

Lady Madeline’s heart is not for sale…especially not to a notorious outlaw like Rhys FitzHenry. Yet Madeline’s hand has been sold, to none other than this battle-weary warrior with a price on his head. A more dutiful maiden might cede to the Laird’s command and meekly accept her fate, but Madeline has never been obedient. She decides to run away, though she never dreams that Rhys will pursue her.

She does not expect this taciturn man to woo her with fanciful stories, much less that each of his enthralling tales will reveal a scar upon his shielded soul. She never imagines that a man like Rhys could imperil her own heart while revealing so little of his own feelings. When Rhys’ past threatens his future, Madeline takes a leap of faith. She dares to believe him innocent—and risks her own life to pursue a passion more priceless than the rarest gem.

The Crusader's Bride, #1 of the Champions of St. Euphemia series of medieval romances by Claire DelacroixGaston battled for duty and honor—until his new wife tempted him to fight for her love.

When the Templar knight Gaston learns that he has inherited his father’s estate in France, he accepts one last quest for the order and agrees to deliver a package to Paris on his way home. A practical man, Gaston knows he has need of a wife and an heir, so when a lovely widowed noblewoman on pilgrimage snares his gaze, he believes he can see matters solved to their mutual convenience.

But Ysmaine is more than a pilgrim enduring bad luck. She has buried two husbands in rapid succession, both of whom died on her nuptial night, and believes herself cursed. Accepting this gruff knight seems doomed to result in his demise, but Gaston is dismissive of her warnings, and Ysmaine finds herself quickly wed again—this time to a man who is not only vital, but determined to survive.

Neither of them realize that Gaston’s errand is one of peril, for the package contains the treasure of the Templars—and some soul, either in their party or pursuing it, is intent upon claiming the prize at any cost. In a company of strangers with secrets, do they dare to trust each other and the love that dawns between them?
