Maid-of-honor to the Virgin Queen, Anne Blanchemain hides a dangerous secret, one that sweeps them into events that might ultimately cost them their lives, and their love.

My Lady’s Treasure by Catherine Kean – Lady Faye Rivellaux is desperate to save a kidnapped child. Former crusading knight Brant Meslarches seeks redemption from his past. Forming an uneasy alliance, they search for lost riches and find treasure worth more than gold.

New Website for Claire

One of my goals when I went indie was to consolidate my social media and website presence. While this seemed like a good idea at the time, as I publish more books, it appears to be less of a good idea.

Over these past few days, I’ve built a new website for Claire Delacroix’s books. The DNS mapped this morning, so the new site has the url delacroix.net, which has been Claire’s website url for more than 20 years. In recent years, that url pointed to this site, but now Claire has her own virtual château again.

That means I’ll be able to simplify this site a great deal. I’m looking forward to that, although it won’t happen immediately. First, the end matter in all of my books needs to be corrected so people don’t click dead links. I also still need to populate all the links on Claire’s new site, and add all of the audiobook covers. The blog will remain here on this site, although Claire’s home page is called New & Next to feature new and upcoming releases.

The lion’s share of the work is done at this point. Hop on over and have a look at Claire’s shiny new home in cyberspace.

If you have any issues with the new site, please let me know by commenting on this post. 🙂

The Bride Quest I Boxed Set New Edition

The Bride Quest 1 Boxed Set by Claire Delacroix

In The Princess, Brianna challenges three knights to compete for her hand, declaring that she will marry the one who brings her a gift that makes her laugh. She hopes to avoid the king’s dictate and marry for love, but Luc has no interest in surrendering to a beauty’s whim. He has abandoned his life as a knight and put down his sword forever—or so he thinks, until Brianna tempts him to fight for her love.

The Bride Quest 1 Boxed Set by Claire DelacroixIn The Damsel, Burke returns to Ireland in the hope of claiming the hand of Alys, the beauty who haunts his dreams. Consigned to the custody of her cruel relatives, Alys has lost hope in any happiness, but Burke lays siege to her assumptions with resolve, restoring both her faith and her love. But when the secrets of the past threaten the couple’s future, will their love be enough to defend them?

In The Heiress, Rowan takes his brothers’ challenge and vows to win the hand of the richest heiress in Ireland. There is no place for love in this charming rogue’s heart—until he finds himself buying a beautiful slave girl, one who provokes him into reconsidering all he knows to be true, and daring him to win her heart, if he can.

This digital boxed set includes all three medieval romances in the original Bride Quest trilogy: The Princess, The Damsel and The Heiress.

New Audible Subscription Plan

The Beauty Bride by Claire Delacroix in audioHere’s another alternative for those of you who love audiobooks: Audible has just introduced a new subscription plan. Right now, it’s only for Romance. I think of it as KU for audibooks.

The audiobooks for the Jewels of Kinfairlie are enrolled in this program—The Beauty Bride, The Rose Red Bride, The Snow White Bride, and The Ballad of Rosamunde—and I’ll be adding the rest of my audiobooks to it later this month.

Here’s The Beauty Bride on Audible.

Learn more about this new option on the Audible website, right here.

More Kindle Unlimited

My experiment with Kindle Unlimited is going very well, so I’m adding some more content to the program.

This month, my Jewels of Kinfairlie series is also moving into KU. This includes The Beauty Bride, The Rose Red Bride, The Snow White Bride, The Ballad of Rosamunde, and the Jewels of Kinfairlie Boxed Set.

The Beauty Bride, first book in the Jewels of Kinfairlie series of medieval Scottish romances by Claire DelacroixStart the series with The Beauty Bride and meet the family at Kinfairlie.

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.

“A lyrical medieval-era romance!”

I’ll be moving more books into the program in December and in January.

This set includes:

The Fallen One by Kathryn Le Veque – A fallen knight and a desperate lady who needs him to lift his sword one last time. Will a man who was once the greatest knight in the realm reclaim his right?

The Crusader’s Bride by Claire Delacroix – Gaston leaves the order Templars in Jerusalem to take command of his family holding in France, vowing to deliver a package to Paris for his former brethen. Knowing that he needs a wife and heir, he chooses Ysmaine, a beautiful pilgrim in need of his assistance. But there is peril on the road from Jerusalem to Paris, and Gaston finds an ally where he least expects one – his resourceful lady wife.

You and No Other by Cynthia Wright – Bold and witty Thomas St. Briac is a trusted knight with a perfect life. His courage in battle is legendary, but is he brave enough to withstand one delicate maiden who seeks to carry off an impetuous masquerade in the royal court?

Eternally Bound by Eliza Knight – Lady Maxwell is about to be thrust upon many eager suitors at Queen Elizabeth’s court, but there is only one man who holds her interest–the very same thief she tries desperately to ignore. Lord Sebastien de Rayne intends to reposess his family’s ancient relics–the Theodosia sword and matching ring–stolen by Baron Dalston, even if it means seducing the lord’s only daughter, “Max,” into marriage. Will the power of the relics bind them together, or are they doomed to a life of misery? Or maybe, they might just fall in love….

Her Christmas Rogue by Christi Caldwell – Lady Winifred Grisham has been in love with her brother’s best friend Lord Trent Ballantine more years than she can remember. The only problem is, Trent is a notorious rogue who doesn’t dally with the respectable. Except, Winnie doesn’t want a dalliance–she wants his heart. Born to a miserable family, Lord Trent has found joy and comfort in the folds of his best friend’s family. Except, over the years he’s begun to notice something. Winnie who he’d always seen as another sister, is in fact something more–a captivating woman. Now, loving Winnie as he does, Trent knows she deserves more than a rogue in her life. With Winnie’s mother rushing her off to try and make a match at Lady Weston’s annual Christmastide house party, Winnie has but a few days to show Trent, that all she needs is his love. But then this is Christmas…when anything can happen!

The Nutcracker Reimagined Anthology Today!

The Nutcracker Reimagined, a Christmas romance anthologyThis year, I’m participating in a second themed anthology of romance novellas for Christmas. These are all new stories which haven’t been published before. The Nutcracker Reimagined features stories that involve elements of that classic Christmas story, The Nutcracker.

My contribution is a medieval romance called The Mercenary’s Bride. This novella is the first story in the Brides of Inverfyre series. It’s the story of Mhairi, daughter of the Hawk of Inverfyre and his wife Aileen. (The family tree for Ravensmuir and Inverfyre is a free download in my online store, right here.) Mhairi is the middle child of five and the second daughter. She’s a crack shot with a crossbow and a bit of a tomboy, and she’s unafraid to defy her father. Her interest was why the mercenary Quentin was dismissed from Inverfyre, but when he returns, bitter and wounded, Mhairi is the only one who can see his merit. Can her love heal him? I think you can guess, but I hope you’ll join me for their adventure.

The Nutcracker Reimagined is specially priced at just 99 cents.
