The Crusader's Bride, book one of the Champions of St. Euphemia series of medieval romances by Claire DelacroixGaston battled for duty and honor—until Ysmaine tempted him to fight for her love…

When the Templar knight Gaston unexpectedly inherits his family estate, he knows he needs a wife and heir. A marriage of convenience to a widow in need of assistance is a practical solution and the newly-wed pair leave Jerusalem, entrusted with the delivery of a package for the Templars. Away from the life he has known for years, Gaston quickly realizes that little is following his plan—especially his mysterious wife, whose presence awakens an unexpected fire…

Twice widowed, Ysmaine doubts she will ever wed again, let alone have a marriage of merit—until she is charmed by the gruff knight intent upon defending her. Ysmaine weds again, not only by her own choice but to a warrior whose honor she admires. She is determined to show Gaston that marriage has more to offer them both than an heir, but first she must win the trust of the wary man she has impulsively wed…

Neither realize that Gaston has been entrusted with the treasure of the Templars—much less that someone in their small party is intent upon claiming the prize at any cost. In a company of strangers with secrets, can Gaston dare to trust his new bride? Can Ysmaine convince Gaston to confide what he knows? Can they solve the riddle together before the villain’s plan comes to fruition and all is lost?

The Crusader’s Heart is also discounted through the 16th to $2.99 US or equivalent.

The Crusader's Heart, book two of the Champions of St. Euphemia series of medieval romances by Claire DelacroixWulfe knew his place—until Christina taught him to hope for more…

An orphan and a man who has fought for his own survival, Wulfe is a Templar knight sworn to the order for life. He will defend the order and his brethren to his last, but protests when he is included in a mission to deliver a package to Paris on the cusp of an attack on Jerusalem. The assignment so vexes him so that he seeks distraction in a Venetian brothel. Wulfe does not expect to encounter a courtesan of beauty and wit, her appeal for his assistance—much less his own desire to fulfill her request…

Christina recognizes immediately that the grim knight offers the chance to escape a despised life and reclaim her legacy. All she has to do is convince Wulfe to accompany her out of the city, a challenge that demands more than the power of her touch—when Wulfe is attacked, she seizes the opportunity to prove her value to him and his quest, uncertain whether her wits will be sufficient.

As attacks mount and danger engulfs the small company, Christina is the one who guesses the contents of the Templar package—and holds the key to its successful delivery. Wulfe is shocked to realize that she has awakened the heart he forgot he possessed—and when she risks herself to see his mission completed, he must choose between his duty and his newfound love…

Pricing on Print Editions

Wyvern's Outlaw, book #4 of the Dragons of Incendium series of paranormal romances by Deborah CookeI’ve made some changes to the distribution details of my print editions from Ingrams, which means that you’ll see better prices at your portal of choice than has been the case to date.

I publish print editions directly through Amazon for Amazon of most titles, and to date, those have had the best prices. l publish print editions for everywhere else from Ingrams. They’ve been priced slightly higher, but these changes will make the prices the same in most cases as the Amazon-direct prices.

As an example, many of my trade paperbacks were $9.99 US on the Amazon direct version but $14.99 US if distributed by Ingrams. In most cases, they’re now $9.99 US from Ingrams, too. I have uploaded some print titles directly to Nook as well – Dragonfire, Flatiron Five, the Champions of St. Euphemia and the True Love Brides – which have similar pricing to the Amazon editions. All the other series come to B&N from Ingrams, and they will all do so in future.

The Frost Maiden's Kiss, a medieval romance and third book in the True Love Brides series by Claire DelacroixSimilarly, the hardcover editions which come from Ingrams – Dragonfire and new ones for Flatiron Five – have dropped in price from $32.99 US or so to $24.99 US or so. The prices vary slightly from book to book – because the length of the book determines the production cost – but you’ll see an improvement.

The new prices were effective yesterday, so they should be live at your portal of choice now.

One Knight’s Return Pre-Order

One Knight's Return, #2 of the Rogues & Angels series of medieval romances by Claire DelacroixOne Knight’s Return will be published May 21.

This is the second book in my Rogues & Angels series of medieval romances. Like One Knight Enchanted, it’s set in medieval Burgundy in an area we’d now call French Switzerland. You can see some pictures of the area on the Pinterest page for the series.

This is also the second of the books I originally published with Harlequin Historicals that I’ve revised for republication. One Knight Enchanted had new scenes and changes to the ending, as well as minor changes throughout from the original book, Enchanted. One Knight’s Return came out of My Lady’s Champion, but has so many changes in the first half that the second half is all new.

The rest of the books in this series will be all new works. You can meet the knights – each of whom will have his own book – in this excerpt from the prologue of One Knight Enchanted.

Heartbreakers: Three Medieval Bad Boys brings you three wicked heroes of ill-repute – and the women who dare to love them.

In The Scoundrel, Evangeline is determined to recover her family’s relic from the thief Gawain. She knows he’s a charming trickster with no moral code and has vowed to play by his rules to regain the prize, never expecting that Gawain will steal her heart. Gawain is intrigued by the first lady who is his match—when he falls in love with Evangeline, will he be able to convince her that his sweet confession isn’t just another ruse?

In The Frost Maiden’s Kiss, Catriona arrives pregnant at notorious Ravensmuir, home of the Hellhound, a mercenary of dangerous repute. The last person she expects to save her child is this grim and fearless man, and she knows herself to be in his debt. When Malcolm suggests a marriage of convenience to give her son a future, Catriona knows the only way to repay the Hellhound is to save him from the curse placed upon him, whatever the cost to herself.

In The Crusader’s Heart, Christina takes a chance on Wulfe, challenging the Templar to aid her in escaping her captivity in a brothel in Venice. She will do anything to convince him that he has need of her by his side as Wulfe is the key to her safe return home. Wulfe finds himself dangerously tempted by the beautiful and resolute Christina, to the point of discarding his vows. He has nothing to offer her in his own right, but Christina’s optimism is infectious and he revisits his own past, in the hope of building a future with her.

For Libraries

My books are available to libraries!

Digital editions of my books are available to libraries through Overdrive and Bibliotheca. This includes my new releases, as well as new editions of many backlist titles. I used to upload directly to Overdrive, but now am using Pronoun (a Macmillan company) to deliver to both of these library portals. Their interface is easier for me, so new releases will appear more quickly on Overdrive than they did before. I also like their version control better.

Print editions of my books are available to libraries through Ingrams. Some of my books are also available in hard cover editions from Ingrams. You can find them on the Collectors’ Editions page here on the site.

My audiobooks are available to libraries through Overdrive and Blackstone Library. Blackstone makes physical cd’s of my audiobooks for libraries, as well as offering digital download licensing.
