The Last Highlander is 99 cents!

Buy NowMy Scottish time travel romance, The Last Highlander, is on sale for just 99 cents this week!

The Last Highlander, a Scottish time travel romance and romantic comedy by Claire Delacroix

Scotland, 1314: After the Scots reclaim Edinburgh Castle, Alasdair MacAuley only wants to celebrate. But the revels are interrupted by an old crone who claims the castle’s true owner is the legendary witch Morgaine le Fee. Dared by his fellow warriors to go meet the witch, Alasdair heads down a flight of stairs — and tumbles right into another century…

Scotland, 1998: American Morgan Lafayette is in Scotland to enjoy the history, not to ogle men in kilts. So when she stumbles upon a brawny man in a kilt, she is less than enthralled. She is certain he’s drunk for he claims Morgan is a powerful sorceress who has brought him to her magical kingdom! Despite her reluctance, she is intensely drawn to this handsome Highlander and the mystery surrounding him, a mystery that has the power to alter history — and her heart — forever…

New Time Travel Covers

My two time travel romances, The Last Highlander and The Moonstone, have new covers!

These two books were originally published by Berkley in their Time Passages line. Here are the original mass market covers – these are digital photographs of the actual books, so the colors aren’t as saturated as on the real book covers. (Imagine. We didn’t get jpegs of our covers in those days!)

The Last Highlander, a Scottish time travel romance by Claire Delacroix (writing as Claire Cross), out of print mass market edition The Moonstone, a time travel romance by Claire Delacroix (writing as Claire Cross), out of print mass market edition

These were the first books that I republished in new editions when I started to go indie. They were also the first covers that I had a cover artist design. These are the covers they’ve had since 2011:

I thought they were due for an update, so Kim and I went back to the drawing board. We decided to return to the “guy alone”, since these books aren’t that sexy, and to get rid of the clock. The time travel would be shown by the two locations, one modern and one medieval, behind the guy. Here are the new covers:

The new editions have been uploaded to all of the various portals. If you bought the books before, you should be able to download the new edition free. That might even happen automatically. If you can’t get it, please contact customer support at the portal.

The Last Highlander Disappears

The Last Highlander, a Scottish time travel romance by Claire Delacroix (writing as Claire Cross)If you’ve been looking for my Scottish time travel romance and romantic comedy, The Last Highlander, you’ll have discovered that its digital edition is currently unavailable.

This morning, I thought I’d tell you why. 🙂

The main reason is that I’ve been invited to participate in an exciting project. This  requires The Last Highlander to be in Kindle Unlimited, which means that it can’t be available anywhere else while it’s available through KU. I’ve removed the book from sale now, to make sure it has time to disappear from all the portals that are fed content by the big portals. After this is all done, I’ll republish The Last Highlander. So, you can expect to find Morgan and Alasdair’s story widely available again in the new year.

I’ll tell you more about this project and give you links as soon as I can!

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.

The Last Highlander Riding High

The Last Highlander, a Scottish time travel romance by Claire DelacroixThe Last Highlander had a very nice bounce yesterday from my 99 cent promotion. This is my Scottish time travel romance and romantic comedy featuring Morgan, an American illustrator seeking inspiration on her vacation to Scotland, and Alasdair, a 13th century highlander who tumbles through time to land at her feet. He’s convinced she’s the only one who can return him to his own time, and is determined to do whatever is necessary to earn her favor. I love this book. Alasdair steals my heart every time I read it.

And a great many of you are taking the opportunity to fall in love with Alasdair, too!

This morning, The Last Highlander is #209 overall in the Kindle store at Amazon.com, as well as #2 in Time Travel Romance and #3 in Scottish Historical Romance.
