Stolen Brides, a boxed set of four medieval romances by Claire Delacroix

Don’t miss this themed boxed set of four full-length Beauty-and-the-Beast medieval romances, available for a limited time! Stolen Brides includes four full-length novels: The Rose Red Bride, Pearl Beyond Price, The Warrior and The Beauty.

In The Rose Red Bride, book two of the Jewels of Kinfairlie trilogy of medieval Scottish romances, Vivienne’s night with her destined love is as magical as the tales foretell, but at dawn, he takes her captive. Erik is bent on vengeance but Vivienne quickly sees his true valor and resolves to help restore his stolen legacy herself. Will she lose her heart in the bargain?

“Claire Delacroix is a shining star of the romance genre. Cleverly original, emotional and fast-paced, full of twists and turns, her books will sweep you right off your feet!”

Julianne Maclean, bestselling author, on The Rose Red Bride

In Pearl Beyond Price, Kira is snatched away from her home by a grim warrior who she cannot understand. When he defends her, she realizes that actions speak louder than words; when Thierry is dispatched on mission that he is not expected to survive, only Kira’s knowledge can ensure his success and give them both the chance of a future. Can Kira dare to hope that the valiant warrior who has claimed her love will share that future with her?

“Another dazzling Delacroix delicacy!”

Affaire de Coeur on Pearl Beyond Price

In The Warrior, book three of the Rogues of Ravensmuir trilogy, the unwed and unwanted Aileen is abducted by a dangerous knight and compelled to wed him in secrecy. But when her dreams reveal truths that the Hawk has never shared and her curiosity takes her where she should not go, he fears that his beguiling new bride may be his doom. Can Aileen overcome her husband’s suspicions to win his love?

“Delacroix’s satisfying tale leaves the reader hungry for the next offering.”

Booklist on The Warrior

The Warrior is one more gem in the crown of this queen of medieval romance!”

Stolen Brides Boxed Set of four Beauty-and-the-beast medieval romances by Claire Delacroix

An Upside Down Month

Things have been a little quiet around here lately, so this morning, I thought I’d explain why.

Four weeks ago, my laptop booted up, then the screen went black. That woke me up faster than a strong cup of coffee! I had everything backed up (twice) and I did manage to coax it back to life intermittently, but its untimely demise forced some changes on my daily routine.

Fortunately, there’s nothing wrong with my last laptop that a battery recharge wouldn’t fix – I’d upgraded because I wanted a lighter laptop for traveling. So, I loaded the old one up with the files for everything that’s happened in the past seven years. Its modem was never configured, because that used to be my trick to staying offline and getting more writing done. Now, it would need a lot of software updates to go online, and I’m not sure its OS would support them all. I really don’t have time to sort it out. Instead, it’s acting like a glorified typewriter, and I’m using Mr. Math’s computer when I need to go online.

Just One Silver Fox, book six in the Flatiron Five Fitness series of contemporary romances by Deborah Cooke

We’ve both discovered that I go online a lot more than suspected!

As a result, I’m behind on social media stuff, and have been quiet. I do my publishing and research work in those moments online when I get the chance. The upside is that I’ve been writing a lot, which is a good thing – and I’m loving Jacquie and Pierce’s book. Sonia has a cameo in Just One Silver Fox that has convinced me that her book will be next. (More about that in March.)

I’ve also published some new translations this month—The Crusader’s Bride was published in Spanish at the end of December, then The Crusader’s Heart followed in January. The Rose Red Bride was published in German in January and my first contemporary romance translation, Just One Snowbound Night, was also published in Spanish in January. Some of the books are enrolled in Kindle Unlimited.

Just One Snowbound Night, book one of the Flatiron Five Tattoo series of contemporary romances by Deborah Cooke, Spanish edition

I have two Spanish translations—one Delacroix and one Cooke—and a German one for Delacroix due in February, plus am waiting on two Portuguese translations of Delacroix books. Publishing these editions means getting the cover translated by the designer, formatting the interior, then publishing the book and putting up pre-orders when possible. I’ve also set up new website pages and newsletters for each language, with the help of the respective translators, so I send a newsletter when there’s a new release. And I’ve contracted with some new translation teams for more foreign editions. Phew! It’s a lot of work but exciting too—Mr. Math thinks it’s cool to look at the locations of the various members of my team.

You can see the current translations (and some of the upcoming ones) on each of my websites:

Stolen Brides, a digital boxed set featuring four full-length medieval romances by Claire Delacroix

Claire has a new boxed set coming out this week, a themed bundle of Beauty-and-the-Beast medieval romances called Stolen Brides. It’ll be 99-cents through February 15 and includes four full-length novels.

I published some of my books on Radish this month, and need to upload more content there.

And I’m participating in three BookFunnel promotions this month, too – these are the ones where readers sign up for an author’s mailing list in exchange for downloading a free book. Here’s one for contemporary romances – there will be a second one in the middle of the month. Here’s a paranormal romance one.

I’m running behind on creating memes and blog posts and getting newsletters prepped, and I haven’t created my monthly features on this blog or the Delacroix blog for trope of the month. At this point, I’ll wait until March to feature another one. I plan to be back on track by the end of the month, after Jacquie and Pierce’s book is all set up for publication in digital and print. Then it’ll be on to Max and Alys, then Sonia and….(?)

I hope your January was a little less challenging than mine!

January New Releases

Did you miss any of my new releases in January?

This year, January was about translations of my medieval romances.

The Crusader's Bride, book one of the Champions of St. Euphemia series of medieval romances by Claire Delacroix, Spanish edition

This first book was actually published at the very end of December – The Crusader’s Bride is now available in a Spanish edition. La novia del caballero de las Cruzadas is the translated title. It was published through Babelcube, so has been taking a while to get to the various portals. I published the ebook and a trade paperback edition, too.

You can learn more about Gaston and Ysmaine’s story in Spanish on my Delacroix website, right here.

The Crusader's Heart, book two of the Champions of St. Euphemia series of medieval romances by Claire Delacroix, Spanish edition

The second title published in January was the second Spanish translation in the Champions of St. Euphemia series. Wulfe’s book is called El corazón del caballero de las Cruzadas in Spanish, and the series is called Los campeones de Santa Eufemia.

Los Campeones de Santa Eufemia sigue a un grupo de caballeros a quienes se les ha confiado un tesoro en Jerusalén que ellos deben entregar de manera segura a París.  En el camino encuentran aventuras y peligros, además de romance. 

The translator will be finishing the series, so I’ve set up pre-orders for the other books. You can find them on my Delacroix website, too.

The Champions of St. Euphemia series of medieval romances by Claire Delacroix in Spanish

The rose Red Bride, book two of the Jewels of Kinfairlie series of medieval romances by Claire Delacroix, German edition

I also published a new German translation in January, of The Rose Red Bride, book two of the Jewels of Kinfairlie series. Die rosenrote Braut has been enrolled in Kindle Unlimited, so is available exclusively at Amazon through April.

Madeline’s book is also available in German, but it’s in wide distribution. You can learn more about Die schöne Braut on my Delacroix website.

I have more translations coming in February, including some contemporary romances, but don’t have all the covers prepared yet. Stay tuned!

The Champions of St. Euphemia in Spanish

The Crusader’s Bride and The Crusader’s Heart are now available in Spanish editions!

I’ve set up pre-orders at some of the portals for the next three books in this series as they’re being translated right now. How exciting! Bartholomew’s story will be available in March; Fergus’ story will be available in April; Duncan’s story will be available in May. The first two books are available now. Just click through on the cover for more details on each one.

The Champions of St. Euphemia series of medieval romances by Claire Delacroix in Spanish

Los Campeones de Santa Eufemia sigue a un grupo de caballeros a quienes se les ha confiado un tesoro en Jerusalén que ellos deben entregar de manera segura a París.  En el camino encuentran aventuras y peligros, además de romance.  Dado que las historias se superponen y se construyen unas sobre otras, deben leerse en orden.

The Rose Red Bride, book two of the Jewels of Kinfairlie series of medieval romances by Claire Delacroix, in German

Die rosenrote Braut

The Rose Red Bride, book two of the Jewels of Kinfairlie series of medieval romances by Claire Delacroix, German edition

Höhergeschätzt als Gold sind die Juwelen von Kinfairlie und nur die Würdigsten dürfen um ihre Liebe kämpfen … Der Laird von Kinfairlie hat unverheiratete Schwestern – jede für sich ein Kleinod. Und er hat keine andere Wahl, als sie in aller Eile zu verheiraten.

Wie eine Heldin in einer alten Erzählung wartet Vivienne im höchsten Turmzimmer von Kinfairlie auf den Liebhaber, den ihr das Los bestimmt hat. Er kommt in der Dunkelheit zu ihr, mit Umhang und Kapuze, sodass sie sein Gesicht nicht sehen kann. Er liebt sie süß und hingebungsvoll … und Vivienne weiß, sie ist ihrem Schicksal begegnet.

Doch im Morgenlicht zerbricht ihr Traum. Erik Sinclair von Blackleith ist kein romantischer Held, sondern ein enterbter Krieger, der ihre Entführung geplant hat, um sein Erbe zurückzugewinnen. Empört über Eriks Behauptung, sie nur für die Zeugung eines Sohnes zu benötigen, und doch verführt von der Leidenschaft, die er in ihr erweckt, wird Vivienne klar, dass ihr schweigsamer Ehegatte mehr Vorzüge hat, als er selbst zugeben würde. Erik betrachtet ihr wachsendes Vertrauen in seine Ehre und ihren Wunsch, sein gestohlenes Geburtsrecht zurückzuerlangen, mit Skepsis …

Er ahnt nicht, dass seine Braut, dieses seltene Juwel, beabsichtigt, auch sein verschlossenes Herz zu gewinnen.

Exclusive to Kindle Unlimited until April 20

The Rogue, #1 of the Rogues of Ravensmuir series of medieval Scottish romances by Claire Delacroix

Dear Reader:
Seductive and mysterious, Merlyn was the laird of Ravensmuir—never had a man so stirred my body and soul. I gave myself to him—willingly, trustingly, passionately—and we soon wed. Then a horrible revelation emerged, shattering my innocence and my marriage…
Five years later, Merlyn returned to my doorstep, desperate for my help. The scoundrel swore he was haunted by memories of me, that a treasure locked in Ravensmuir could clear his name. Yet I could not surrender to his will again. Now he is said to be murdered and Ravensmuir has fallen into my hands.
But even as I cross the threshold of this cursed keep, I hear his whisper in the darkness, feel his caress in the night, and I know that Merlyn has told me but part of his tale. Should I do as is right and expose his lair? Or dare I trust my alluring but deceptive spouse—the rogue who destroyed my heart?
—Ysabella
