The Coxwells Boxed Set at Amazon

This quarter, my contemporary romance, All or Nothing, is a free read. That book is #4 of the Coxwell series, so the boxed set of the first four books in the series is also on sale. It’s $9.99US this quarter, discounted from its usual $14.99. And that means the boxed set is available at Amazon again. 🙂


The Coxwells Boxed Set by Deborah Cooke

This digital boxed set includes the first four books in The Coxwell Series. Three brothers and a sister find themselves on the adventure to romance and happily-ever-after in this bestselling series of contemporary romances and romantic comedies by Deborah Cooke.

When Philippa’s high school crush turns up on her doorstep, she knows better than to trust the bad boy who broke her heart. Nick proves that he’s determined to fix his past mistakes in Third Time Lucky – does Philippa dare to give him another chance?

In Double Trouble, self-reliant Maralys breaks her own rules to help out her twin sister’s husband and kids when her sister walks out forever. If it’s because she has a soft spot for James—or unfinished business with him—she’s not going to admit it. But James is better at understanding Maralys than she realizes, and he soon realizes that their second chance at love is their best shot at happiness.

In One More Time, Matt walks out of his marriage to Leslie, his mother-in-law unexpectedly moves in while he visits an old girlfriend, their teenage daughter shows even more attitude and a pair of resident poodles add mayhem to Leslie’s quest for the magic that once made their marriage work. Can they find the balance again?

In All or Nothing, bad boy Zach meets a cute waitress who isn’t easily charmed and (even)  turns him down. A cancer survivor, Jen knows better than to get involved with guys who will only disappear when it matters. When her mother decides to play matchmaker, though, Jen decides that Zach would make a great fake date, only to discover that he has a lot more to offer than a good time.

The boxed set includes Third Time Lucky, Double Trouble, One More Time, All or Nothing and also an excerpt from Just One Fake Date, book #1 of the Flatiron Five Fitness series of contemporary romances.

Q1 E-Book Specials

Last year, we had a good long run with some free series starters. Just One Fake Date was free from April to the end of the year. Kiss of Fire was free most of the year. Wyvern’s Mate, my other PNR series starter, was 99 cents last year. The Beauty Bride was free until my medieval romances went into Kindle Unlimited. It’s time to switch things up!

The Flatiron Five Tattoo Boxed Set, including all four contemporary romances in the series by Deborah Cooke
Flatiron Five Tattoo Boxed Set

For my contemporary romances, my two series starters are 99cents for first quarter of 2022. You can get Just One Fake Date or Just One Snowbound Night for just 99 pennies. Remember that there are now boxed sets available for both series, and those are more economical ways to continue reading. You can find the Flatiron Five Tattoo Boxed Set here, and the main series boxed sets here.

Also, for Q1, my contemporary romance and romantic comedy, All or Nothing, is a free read. I love this book so much: Zach and Jen are fun together and so good for each other. It’s set between Thanksgiving and Christmas, but a fun read no matter what the season.

All or Nothing, book #4 of the Coxwell series of contemporary romances by Deborah Cooke
All or Nothing

It’s book 4 in the Coxwell Series, and I’ve also discounted the Coxwell Series Boxed Set from $14.99 to $9.99 in case you want to read the other books in the series. (The bundle is available at Amazon again, too.)

Amazon may or may not support the free price – I can only set a book to 99¢ there and ask them to match the free price at other portals – so be sure to check the price before you download it. It’s free internationally at other portals, and you can download a MOBI file from Smashwords if Amazon doesn’t have the book free in your geo.

Dragons First, a digital bundle of three paranormal romance series starters by Deborah Cooke
Dragons First
3 Dragon Shifter Romance Series Starters

For my paranormal romances, Kiss of Fire and Wyvern’s Mate have returned to their regular prices because there’s now a bundle of series starters called Dragons First. Dragons First includes three dragon shifter romance series starters: Kiss of Fire, Wyvern’s Mate and Dragon’s Kiss. (It also includes the DragonFate prequel, Maeve’s Book of Beasts, and the Dragons of Incendium short story, Nero’s Dream.) Right now, it’s just 99 cents which makes it a great way to meet my shifters.

Dragonfire: the Complete Series, a digital bundle including all fourteen paranormal romances in the Dragonfire series by Deborah Cooke
Dragonfire: The Complete Series

Again, you can continue reading with boxed sets: Dragonfire Quest includes the first three books in the Dragonfire series while Dragonfire: The Complete Series includes (surprise!) all fourteen works in the complete series. I’m going to include that cover here, just because I like it so much. 🙂 There’s a bundle for the first six works in the Dragons of Incendium series called The Dragons of Incendium: the First Collection.

There are also discount codes available for KOBO, Barnes & Noble, GooglePlay and Smashwords, so you can save when you continue reading. These digital coupons are a bit of a new thing so I’m giving them a try. You can find the details in the password-protected area of the Dragonfire website called The Lair. You can get the password in my PNR newsletter.

First Knights, a boxed set of four medieval romance series starters by Claire Delacroix
First Knights
4 Medieval Romance series starters

My medieval romances can be read free in Kindle Unlimited if you subscribe. That means they’re available exclusively at Amazon and that they’re otherwise at their regular prices. If you’re looking for value, my boxed sets are a better deal than buying books individually – here are the trope-based bundles. First Knights is my most recently published bundle: it contains four medieval romance series starters. There are also bundles for many of my series.

If you’re looking for a new medieval romance to love, The Hunter & the Heiress, book two of my Blood Brothers series will be publishing soon.

That’s the big plan for Q1!

2021 in Review

This year has been a wild ride. I’m looking forward to tallying it all up in this post today. 🙂

New Releases

I wrote my usual amount this year, which is always a cool thing. I published three full-length books and two novellas this past year. (I’ve also written a lot of words for books that will be published next year, including most of The Hunter & the Heiress.)

A Most Inconvenient Earl is odd – it’s both published and on pre-order, since it was published in the anthology Twelve Lords for Christmas and is available for pre-order on its own for March.)

Plus I was thrilled to participate in this multi-author boxed set of Regency Christmas romances, Twelve Lords for Christmas. Because this bundle has done so well, we’re going to do another together next year – so Esmeralda Ballantyne will have her story told, too!

I also put my medieval romances into Kindle Unlimited.

I regained all of the rights to my YA trilogy, The Dragon Diaries, and published my editions in all markets.

The Wolf & the Witch, book one of the Blood Brothers series of medieval romances by Claire Delacroix, audio edition narrated by Tim Campbell
The Wolf & the Witch in audio

I also published one new audiobook in 2021 – the narration of The Wolf & the Witch by the amazing Tim Campbell.

I don’t even want to think about the translations! 2021 was insane for them. (The links below will take you to the relevant translation page on my websites.) Let’s see: in Spanish, I published Claire’s The Champions of St. Euphemia, The Jewels of Kinfairlie and most of the True Love Brides, as well as Flatiron Five Tattoo and most of Flatiron Five Fitness. I’m in the midst of publishing the first Flatiron Five Fitness book in Portuguese and there’s an Italian translation on the way, too.

There were also Spanish editions of three of the DragonFate novels. There were Italian editions of two of the DragonFate Novels and The Renegade’s Heart, as well as Portuguese editions of the first DragonFate novel and the first two books in the Champions of St. Euphemia series. And there were more German editions, The Rose Red Bride and the first two books in the Champions of St. Euphemia series. I’m counting 35 translations for 2021 (but I might have missed one or two.) I actually did pre-orders for translations, which was new and different.

What’s in store for 2022? Well, the pre-orders give a hint of what’s in the works. I listed A Most Inconvenient Earl at the top of the page, but here are the other releases already scheduled for 2022:

When Annika Met Thom, book ten of the Flatiron Five Fitness series of contemporary romances by Deborah Cooke

I hope you’re as pleased with your accomplishments in 2021 – and looking forward to 2022 as much as I am!

December Update

Compiling these monthly posts is becoming addictive! It really gives me a sense of accomplishment. Let’s take a look at what was completed in December.

New Release

This month, as is so often the cast at the end of the year, I published two new boxed sets: Flatiron Five Fitness Boxed Set 1 and Dragons First, a bundle of three first-in-series dragon shifter romances.

Flatiron Five Fitness Boxed Set 1, including the first three contemporary romances in the series by Deborah Cooke
Dragons First, a digital bundle of three paranormal romance series starters by Deborah Cooke

Boxed sets are a good way to save money on ebooks – FF1, for example, is priced at $9.99US, while the individual books are $5.99US each. Just One Fake Date is sometimes free, but even so, the bundle is a better deal than buying the books individually. Dragons First similarly is a better deal than buying all three books—it’s 99cents right now, so even if you picked up Kiss of Fire free, it’s a good deal. Better yet, Dragons First has discount codes after each book to save when you continue the series at some portals. (Nook, KOBO, GooglePlay and Smashwords). These codes are comparatively new and I’m curious to see how many of you like them. There’s more detail in this post on my Dragonfire website—plus I got to add a password-protected area there called The Lair. 🙂

One other extremely cool thing happened this month: I regained all of the rights for my Dragon Diaries paranormal YA series and was able to publish my editions in all markets. That was the last of the rights to revert from previous publishers, and it felt really good to have everything back. I’ve gotten used to having the control over my work. 🙂

Winging It, book two of the Dragon Diaries YA paranormal trilogy by Deborah Cooke

Pre-Orders

For a while, I’d sworn off pre-orders but have been making up for that this fall. There are three pre-orders for upcoming contemporary romances: Aidan’s book, Just A Small Town Romance, which is book one of my upcoming contemporary romance series, the Heroes of Harte’s Harbor; When Annika Met Thom is the 10th and (at this point) final romance in the Flatiron Five Fitness series, coming in April; The Flatiron Five Fitness Boxed Set 1 is the first series bundle and will publish in December. I’ve also got the pre-order up for The Flatiron Five Fitness Boxed Set 2, coming in June. The third bundle will publish next December. You can find the links for all of them on the F5F Boxed Set page.

Claire has four pre-orders right now: first, there’s The Hunter and the Heiress, book two of my Blood Brothers series of medieval Scottish romances. This month, I also added the pre-order for Rafael’s book, #3 in that series, The Dragon and the Damsel. That book will be coming in September. I also added a character list for the Blood Brothers series on the Delacroix website.

In March, the fourth and final book in the Brides of North Barrows series of Regency romance novellas, A Most Inconvenient Earl, will be published. There’s an upcoming bundle, the Brides of North Barrows Boxed Set, which will publish in August in ebook and trade paperback, too. This one was put together early because I saw this cover art and just fell in love. It’s perfect for Sophia and Lucien, who earn their HEA at Samhain. Don’t forget there’s a family tree for North Barrows that you can download free from the Delacroix site.

As for my dragons, the next DragonFate paranormal romance, Dragon’s Wolf, is up for pre-order. It will be pubilshed in May.

Translations

As seems to be the norm now, I had a number new translations published in December. Let’s have a look at a summary:

In Spanish, my one translation teams is continuing with Flatiron Five Fitness and The True Love Brides—in December, I published Just Home for the Holidays and The Frost Maiden’s Kiss in Spanish editions. I also published Dragon’s Heart in Spanish.

Just Home for the Holidays, book seven of the Flatiron Five Fitness series of contemporary romances by Deborah Cooke, Spanish edition

The Frost Maiden's Kiss, book three of rht True Love Brides series of medieval Scottish romances by Claire Delacroix, Spanish edition

Dragon's Heart, book three of the DragonFate novels paranormal romances by Deborah Cooke, Spanish edition

Also this month, Just One Fake Date was published in a Portuguese edition for Brazil. There were a couple more translations that were pushed off to January, which is fine.

Phew! Next I’ll do a round-up of the year. That should be quite a post!

Flatiron Five Fitness Boxed Set 1 Available Today

Flatiron Five Fitness Boxed Set 1, including the first three contemporary romances in the series by Deborah Cooke

Straight out of college, five friends launched a fitness club together, hoping to make it the hottest spot to work out in Manhattan. Ten years later, they’ve succeeded beyond their hopes, partly because of a rumor among the membership that F5F is the place to fall in love. The founding partners have been immune, at least so far.

In Just One Fake Date, Tyler needs a fake date to his sister’s wedding to keep interfering relatives in their lane. He’s surprised when Shannyn, a classmate from college, offers him an unexpected deal. But one night with Shannyn isn’t nearly enough for Tyler—can he convince her to make their relationship a real one?

In Just One More Time, Lauren calls Kyle when she finds herself single again and in need of satisfaction. She knows Kyle isn’t interested in commitment, but not that Kyle considers her to be off-limits. In fact, Kyle fell for Lauren years before—which means he can’t turn her down. But can he convince her to take a second chance on love?

In Just One Night Together, Haley is fascinated by the powerful man who comes to visit his mom at the hospital, and not just because of his gift with therapeutic massage. The curious nurse asks for a lesson and gets a whole lot more from this former soldier. Can Haley provide the healing touch Damon needs to believe in the future again?

Flatiron Five Fitness Boxed Set 1 includes the first three books in the series: Just One Fake Date (Tyler and Shannyn), Just One More Time (Kyle and Lauren) and Just One Night Together (Damon and Haley). Come to the hottest fitness club in Manhattan and fall in love!

Chloe tiene planes…
El manejo de las finanzas en Flatiron 5 Fitness West está haciendo realidad su objetivo de independencia financiera.  Regresar a Nueva York para Navidad debería ser una rutina, pero su madre comienza a buscar pareja, y Chloe necesita un acompañante.  Cuando Hunter se ofrece como voluntario, Chloe decide que él es la elección perfecta: nunca se involucrará emocionalmente con un hombre que no se preocupe por el mañana.  No duele que sea sexy o que bese como si él lo hubiera inventado, pero cuando Chloe descubre que Hunter odia la Navidad, ella necesita saber por qué.  ¿Cuánto hará ella para descubrir sus secretos?  ¿Y cómo evitará enamorarse una vez que lo haga?

Hunter vive en el momento…
Él ha aprendido por las malas que el mañana nunca llegará y está decidido a hacer que cada día cuente.  El problema es la Navidad: necesita una gran distracción para mantener a raya sus recuerdos.  Una cita falsa para un elegante evento de caridad con su hermosa compañera de trabajo, Chloe, definitivamente está fuera de lo común para él, pero a Hunter le encantan los desafíos.  ¿Qué podría ser mejor que romper cada una de las reglas de Chloe?  Todo es divertido hasta que Chloe decide ayudar a Hunter a dejar el pasado atrás; cuando ella exige más que una aventura, ¿podrá Hunter aprender a creer en el futuro de nuevo?

In the Flatiron Five Fitness Boxed Set 2, two more partners in the successful Manhattan fitness club fall in love, and heal from the wounds of the past. Plus there are weddings and a baby!

In Just One Hometown Hero, Cassie returns to the town she couldn’t wait to leave and makes up for lost opportunity with her high school crush and bad boy, Reid. Reid can’t resist an invitation from the woman who was always off-limits and soon Cassie wants more than a weekend—but Reid doesn’t believe in forever anymore. Can Cassie change his mind?.

In the novella, Two Wedding & A Baby, the team from F5F gather to celebrate new partnerships. Cassie and Reid’s wedding is interrupted by an early arrival, then Haley and Damon launch their future together.

In Just One Second Chance, Theo decides to move on and forget the one who got away. Just as he steps up to challenge Kyle in a contest between the east and west coast clubs, Lyssa reappears in his life, bringing the complications and passion that has haunted him for years. Can they make their second chance work or will the revelation of Lyssa’s secrets make a future together impossible?

The Flatiron Five Fitness Boxed Set 2 includes the next three stories in the series: Just One Hometown Hero (Cassie and Reid), Two Weddings and a Baby, and Just One Second Chance (Theo and Lyssa). Return to Flatiron Five Fitness for three more heartfelt and steamy contemporary romances!

Christmas Reads

I have a lot of holiday romances and some of them are on sale this month, so here’s a little festive shopping list for you. 🙂

Just Home for the Holidays, a Christmas romance novella and #7 in the Flatiron Five series of contemporary romances by Deborah Cooke

Just Home for the Holidays (Flatiron Five Fitness #7) is discounted to 99¢ this week. (Act fast!) Hunter and Chloe’s romance is a fake date, freinds to lovers, workplace romance that I just love to bits. What can Chloe do with a guy who hates Christmas, except try to change his mind? All this and Christmas in Manhattan, which is pure magic. (My first trip to NYC was during the week between Christmas and New Year’s and I’ve loved that city ever since.) Come fall for Hunter and New York in this romance.

All or Nothing, book #4 of the Coxwell series of contemporary romances by Deborah Cooke

All or Nothing is #4 in the Coxwells series but those books are closer to being standalones. It’s also a fake date that leads to forever, and a romantic comedy with all the feels. It starts just before Thanksgiving, when Jen invites Zach to her family dinner, mostly because she’s sure she could never fall for a guy like him. (We know where that goes, don’t we?) The best part of this IMO is that Jen compels Zach to reconsider his choices and make some different ones. I love that kind of romance.

Just One Christmas Night, book four of the Flatiron Five Tattoo series of contemporary romances by Deborah Cooke

Just One Christmas Night (Flatiron Five Tattoo #4) features a fresh start for Chynna when she attends a Christmas wedding in Maine. She’s had a great love in her life already and isn’t expecting another – but then she meets Trevor. She thinks it’s just a one-nighter but Trevor knows that Chynna is the woman he’s been waiting for. This is a later-in-life romance, an emotional and festive story of healing, and the romance both of these characters deserve.

Just One Second Chance, book six of the Flatiron Five Fitness series of contemporary romances by Deborah Cooke

Just One Second Chance is Flatiron Five Fitness #6 and Theo’s second-chance-at-love romance. Lyssa returns to NYC and reappears in Theo’s life when he’s doing promotional pop-ups for Flatiron Five Fitness at locations around the city. She’s got secrets to share and confessions to make, and just like she did once before, she shakes his world completely. I love how these two work through the wounds of the past to build a new future together.

A Berry Merry Christmas, a holiday romance novella by Deborah Cooke

A Berry Merry Christmas is the first holiday story I ever wrote (!!). It’s a romantic comedy featuring an elf on assignment from Mr. C. to make one girl’s Christmas wish come true – and the by-the-book businessman who is that little girl’s uncle and doesn’t believe in magic at all. It’s a sweet, fun story that some readers have said should be a Hallmark movie. I’ve made it 99cents for the month of December but at KOBO, it will be discounted from December 8 to 24 as part of a Festive Reads promotion.

If you shop at KOBO, they’re having a BOGO sale this month on holiday romances and some of the other titles are included in that.

Just Home for the Holidays is on the Charts!

Just Home for the Holidays, a Christmas romance novella and #7 in the Flatiron Five series of contemporary romances by Deborah Cooke

Chloe has plans…

Running the finances at Flatiron Five Fitness West is steadily making her goal of financial independence come true. Returning to New York for Christmas should be routine, but her mom starts matchmaking—and Chloe needs a plus-one fast. When Hunter volunteers, Chloe decides he’s the perfect choice—she’ll never get emotionally involved with a guy who doesn’t worry about tomorrow. It doesn’t hurt that he’s hot, or that he kisses like he invented it—but when Chloe discovers that Hunter hates Christmas, she needs to know why. How much will she surrender to unlock his secrets? And how will she keep herself from falling in love once she does?



Hunter lives in the moment…

He’s learned the hard way that tomorrow might never come and is determined to make every day count. The problem is Christmas—he needs a major distraction to keep his memories at bay. A fake date to a fancy charity event with his gorgeous co-worker, Chloe, is definitely out of the ordinary for him, but Hunter loves a challenge. What could be a better one than breaking every one of Chloe’s rules? It’s all fun until Chloe decides to help Hunter put the past behind him—when she demands more than a fling, can Hunter learn to believe in the future again?


Five stars!
This is the most absolutely perfect story. I loved everything about this story, I couldn’t put it down. It was like a movie was playing in my head. It wasn’t rushed, it wasn’t too Hallmark-y, it was just…..perfect.

A Country Christmas Wedding, the bonus epilogue to Just Home for the Holidays, book seven of the Flatiron Five Fitness series of contemporary romances by Deborah Cooke

Come to a Christmas wedding at Hunter and Chloe’s farm, one year after the end of Just Home for the Holidays. When Hunter and Chloe exchange their vows, each has a surprise for the other to make their wedding day complete.

A Country Christmas Wedding is the free bonus epilogue for Just Home for the Holidays. You can download it just for subscribing to my monthly newsletter, Heroes & Happy Endings.

Look for the link at the end of the ebook!

Find it on Goodreads.


Five Stars!
Flatiron Fitness is always fun to return to and this time around we have a guy who lives in the moment, has deep scars, and doesn’t want any sort of commitment, oh, and hates Christmas. We also have Chloe who likes and lives by her plans, doesn’t like surprises, and needs a fake date ASAP while in town for the Holidays so her mom doesn’t try to set her up with her ex. Enter Hunter who, until now, has never noticed her because she hid behind her conservative clothes and glasses, but she has gone through a change and he likes that change. I enjoyed their story and how he got more than he expected or wanted because Chloe decides that he is worth more than a one-night stand. I enjoyed how it evolved and the ending was sweet and romantic. Loved it.

Rendezvous with a Romance

Just Home for the Holidays is also available in mass market paperback.
