Erica Ridley’s Historical Romance Promotion

Erica Ridley's Historical Romance Promotion May 2017

This weekend (May 25 – 31) Erica Ridley has put together a promotion featuring UK-set historical romances. You’ll find The Beauty Bride included in this promotion, but lots of other romances, too. The books are FREE via BookFunnel so it’s a great chance to discover a new author. Erica insisted that they all be full stories, too, so you won’t find any cliffhangers or serializations here.

Here’s the link to the landing page. Have fun!

Wider AudioBook Distribution

Three more of my audiobooks are going into wider distribution. As well as finding them at Amazon, Apple and Audible, they’ll be available at Downpour, B&N, Indigo and also available to libraries.

The B&N links are a little bit slow to populate – The Warrior’s Prize should be there, for example – but I’ll share what I have with you, today.

The Bride Quest

As I told you recently in Exciting News, the rights to my original Bride Quest trilogy have reverted to me. The trilogy includes The Princess, The Damsel and The Heiress. This means that I’m in the midst of creating new editions of these books for publication, which means that they need new covers.

The Princess, book #1 of the Bride Quest trilogy of medieval romances by Claire Delacroix  The Damsel, book #2 of the Bride Quest trilogy of medieval romances by Claire Delacroix  The Heiress, book #3 of the Bride Quest trilogy of Scottish medieval romances by Claire Delacroix

I decided this was an excellent opportunity to update the covers of the second Bride Quest as well—The Countess, The Beauty and The Temptress—so that the whole series has similar graphical branding.

The Countess, book #1 in the Bride Quest II trilogy of Scottish medieval romances, by Claire Delacroix  The Beauty, book #2 of the Bride Quest II trilogy of Scottish medieval romances and a NYT bestselling title, by Claire Delacroix  The Temptress, book #3 of the Bride Quest II trilogy of Scottish medieval romances, by Claire Delacroix

As of today, the house has removed their digital editions from sale, so it’s time to move forward!

My plan is to relaunch the first Bride Quest in August. I’m in the midst of removing the digital editions of the second Bride Quest trilogy from sale, so that I can relaunch the whole series with shiny new covers and updated interiors.

The new covers will be revealed in my May newsletter.

So, if you’re looking for these titles, don’t think your eyes are deceiving you. They’ll be back!

Exciting News

A very exciting thing has just happened—the rights to three more of my books have reverted to me from the publisher. I now have the rights back to The Princess, The Damsel and The Heiress. The publishing house will be removing their digital editions from sale, but retain the right to sell the rest of their print stock.

I’ve removed the buy links from the book pages here on my website.

The original covers were designed by Alan Ayers and I always liked them. The books had step-backs, too.

The Princess, book #1 of the Bride Quest trilogy of medieval romances by Claire Delacroix   The Damsel, book #2 of the Bride Quest trilogy of medieval romances by Claire Delacroix   The Heiress, book #3 of the Bride Quest trilogy of Scottish medieval romances by Claire Delacroix

I’ll be republishing these books in new editions, as soon as I can get everything pulled together. I’m also going to take this opportunity to rebrand the Bride Quest II books with new covers. There will still be two boxed sets, one of each trilogy, and they’ll have new covers, too.

The prices on the Bride Quest will be lower than they were from the original publisher, too.

Stay tuned for updates!

 

The Renegade’s Heart goes Free

My medieval Scottish romance, The Renegade’s Heart, is free at major portals through the end of the month. This medieval Scottish romance is first in the True Love Brides series and is Isabella’s story.

The Renegade's Heart, book #1 of the True Love Brides Series of Scottish medieval romances, by Claire DelacroixReleased 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?

Book Boyfriend Giveaway

This weekend, I’m participating in the monthly Book Boyfriend Bed Hop promotion hosted by Shannyn Leah, which features over fifty free and 99-cent romance reads in a variety of sub-genres. You’ll find The Beauty Bride and Wyvern’s Mate among the offerings. In addition to the free and discounted reads, there’s a chance to win one of four Amazon gift cards. The promotion continues through April 16th.

Here’s the landing page. Have fun!

April Signed Book Giveaway

The Beauty, book #2 of the Bride Quest II trilogy of Scottish medieval romances and a NYT bestselling title, by Claire DelacroixLast month’s prize book was The Beauty and Lisa M won the signed trade paperback copy. Congrats to Lisa!

This month’s prize book is The Warrior, book #3 in my Rogues of Ravensmuir series of medieval Scottish romances. This one is a reincarnation story – the Hawk steals a bride, who brings him a great deal more than he expects. Aileen unravels the mysteries of the past at Inverfyre, and also helps the Hawk to secure his legacy. It’s an enemies-to-lovers, stolen-bride kind of story and one that proves to me that love conquers all. 🙂

The Warrior is also good book to read to get ready for The Brides of Inverfyre series, which features the children of Aileen and the Hawk.

“Delacroix’s satisfying tale leaves the reader hungry for the next offering!”—Booklist

The Warrior, book #3 in the Rogues of Ravensmuir trilogy of Scottich medieval romances, by Claire Delacroix The Warrior, book #3 of the Rogues of Ravensmuir trilogy of medieval Scottish romances by Claire DelacroixThe fun thing this month is that the winner will be able to choose which edition he/she would like. I have both of these available. The one on the right is the current version.

Please comment on this post for your chance to win. Tell me whether you believe in reincarnation or not – and why.

Good luck to everyone. I’ll choose a winner at the end of the month.

ETA – Judy Miles is our winner and she’s already chosen a copy of The Warrior with the new cover. Thanks to everyone who played along. Your answers are fascinating. Now, it’s time for May’s book giveaway. 🙂
