Now through July 14, The Renegade’s Heart is a free series starter!

The Renegade's Heart, #1 of the True Love Brides series of medieval Scottish romances by Claire DelacroixShe would risk everything to save his soul…

Released 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?

The Flatiron Five Boxed Set Update

Flatiron Five: The First Collection, a digital bundle of the first three contemporary romances and romantic comedies in the Flatiron Five series by Deborah CookeA reader contacted me last week to ask about an update to the Flatiron Five Boxed Set. This was a really good question and I had to think about it a bit.

The boxed set as originally published included Simply Irresistible, Addicted to Love and In the Midnight Hour. The issue is that there’s a new series starter, and that Just One Fake Date, while it’s Tyler’s story, is a different story than Simply Irresistible. Currently, the boxed set is unavailable – if you have it on your e-reader, the cover is at right. There’s no page for it on the website anymore, because it’s no longer for sale.

What I’ve decided to do is update the boxed set with Just One Fake Date and the two updated stories, Just One More Time and Just One Night Together. If you own the boxed set pictured at right, you’ll be able to download the new edition (which will have a new cover) as an update. I’ll do this around or slightly before the publication of Just One Silver Fox, which is just about the time that Just One Fake Date will become a free series starter.

Just One Silver Fox, book six of Flatiron Five Fitness series of contemporary romances by Deborah CookeThe thing is that if you download this update, the existing file will be over-written. That means you won’t have Simply Irresistible anymore. There’s no way around this, so you’ll have to choose whether to take the update, or buy the new editions separately.

Then I’ll create a second boxed set, including Just One Hometown Hero, Two Weddings & a Baby, Just One Second Chance and Just One Silver Fox next summer, and publish it around the time that Aidan’s book is released. Aidan’s book will be the first in a new contemporary romance series set in Harte’s Harbor. I may also do a boxed set of the four books in the Flatiron Five Tattoo series next summer.

I’ll get the covers done closer to the end of the year and will put up a pre-order for the second boxed set once the first one is updated and available.

That’s the plan!

Review for Just One Fake Date at Rendezvous with a Romance

Just One Fake Date, book one of the Flatiron Five Fitness series of contemporary romances by Deborah CookeHere’s a wonderful way to start the day – with a glowing new review for Tyler’s new book, Just One Fake Date, thanks to Heather at Rendezvous with a Romance:

Deborah Cooke decided to re-write the first book of the Flatiron Five Fitness with a new female lead for Tyler, Shannyn Hawke, with a whole new plot. Shannyn is a freelance photogapher who went to college with Tyler and she has a job to cover the alumni who own Flatiron Five Fitness. From the moment she walks into his office, sparks fly and the story vibe was a lot different from the original book.  I liked it a lot. I liked the chemistry between Shannyn and Tyler, I enjoyed watching Tyler fight for a real relationship with her, and the passion was great between the two.  The original book had Tyler playing two characters, him and a BDSM character with Amy and I just didn’t like how Amy had difficulty seeing how Tyler is the man for her.  In this one, Shannyn had commitment issues, and I liked that conflict better. Tyler had to fight to prove to her that a relationship could work and that he wasn’t going anywhere. There was no need for any subterfuge in this one and I loved how the story flowed and concluded. Overall, so much better start to a series that was awesome! I just want to know what his new billboard looks like with Shannyn 🙂

The billboard is described in book two, Just One More Time.

You can see the review on the Rendezvous with a Romance site, right here.

Thank you, Heather!

Dragonfire Quest Boxed Set is 99¢!

From today through May 24, the Dragonfire Quest boxed set – including the first three full-length Dragonfire novels – is discounted from $9.99US to just 99¢!

Dragonfire Quest, the first Dragonfire digital bundle including Kiss of Fire, Kiss of Fury and Kiss of Fate of the Dragonfire Novels series of paranormal romances by Deborah Cooke Dragonfire Quest is the first digital bundle in The Dragonfire Novels: The Complete Series and includes the three books that launch the Dragon’s Tail Wars between the Pyr, dragon shifters pledged to defend the treasures of the earth, and the evil Slayers, dragon shifters bent on destroying both the Pyr and the humans they protect.

In Kiss of Fire, dragon shifter Quinn Tyrrell is caught between the firestorm with his destined mate, Sara Keenan, and his hereditary responsibilities as the Smith of the Pyr. But Quinn has learned to be skeptical of his fellow dragon shifters and it’s only when the evil Slayers target Sara that he realizes he needs the help of his own kind. Can pragmatic Sara be persuaded to believe that she’s his destined mate and the foretold Seer of the Pyr? Can Quinn win Sara’s heart before it’s too late for them, their firestorm, and the Pyr?

In Kiss of Fury, Donovan Shea, the dragon shifter assigned to defend scientist Alex Madison from the Slayers who have killed her partner, is surprised by the spark of his own firestorm. Donovan has no interest in commitment, especially one who has nightmares about dragons. All the same, there’s something special about Alex, something that feeds a heat in Donovan beyond that of the firestorm. Can they work together to save her invention, the Green Machine, without surrendering to the firestorm’s demand? If they embrace the promise of a future together, will the Slayers attack Alex again?

Dragonfire Quest, the first Dragonfire digital bundle including Kiss of Fire, Kiss of Fury and Kiss of Fate of the Dragonfire Novels series of paranormal romances by Deborah Cooke

In Kiss of Fate, Erik Sorensson, leader of the Pyr, has to confront past failures when he has a second chance at true love. Outspoken and independent Eileen Grosvenor isn’t what Erik expects in a mate, but he admires her creativity and her resilience. Eileen has her doubts about trusting a dragon shifter, but when she’s targeted by Slayers for the treasure she’s claimed, having a good dragon on her side sounds like a plan. Can Erik and Eileen learn to work together to triumph in time—over Slayers, the wounds of the past, and even their own assumptions?

All's Fair in Love and War: Four Enemies-to-Lovers Medieval Romances by Claire DelacroixAll’s Fair in Love and War: Four Enemies-to-Lovers Medieval Romances

Be swept away by four thrilling medieval romances by the “Queen of Medieval Romance”, each featuring a defiant lady at odds with a persistent and powerful knight. Sparks fly in these battles of wills, but passion will win the day.

In One Knight’s Return, Melissande is compelled by her overlord to marry a rough knight just home from crusade – the alternative is to surrender her family holding completely. She knows the kind of knight who will hold her heart, and Quinn de Sayerne isn’t it. Quinn, on the other hand, knows what it’s like to risk everything and is determined to make their arranged marriage into a real one—no matter what the cost to his beautiful wife’s pride.

All's Fair in Love and War: Four Enemies-to-Lovers Medieval Romances by Claire DelacroixIn The Scoundrel, Evangeline will do anything to retrieve the relic stolen from the chapel in her family holding, even seduce the thief himself to capture the prize. Gawain has always lived outside the law, a charming rebel protecting his own advantage, but Evangeline’s devotion to Inverfyre makes him question is choices. If he changed his ways, could this beguiling, brilliant, maddening woman come to love him?

In The Rose Red Bride, Erik abducts Vivienne to avenge himself against his wicked brother. Fueled by anger, he expects little of his captive except a son—but Vivienne is precisely the woman to take Erik’s cause once she learns his story. If Vivienne can ensure that Erik’s stolen legacy is regained, will her embittered but honorable husband find room in his heart for her?

In The Warrior’s Prize, Elizabeth challenges Rafael to change his ways, skeptical that the mercenary who nearly cost her brother his life is capable of redemption. But Rafael sees his comrade’s sister as an angel sent to save him, and when he realizes that she’s in peril of being claimed by the Fae king himself, Rafael will pay any price to save the only maiden bold enough to challenge him. But will his all be enough for Elizabeth?

Indulge in four sweeping medieval romances to warm a winter’s night!

Just One Silver Fox

Flatiron Five Fitness continues! You’ll meet Jacquie (aka Jax), the human resources manager at the club, in Just One Fake Date. I loved this character as soon as she stepped onto the page. Cassie called her “the original woman of few words and F5F’s kickboxing queen”. Cassie also admitted she wanted to be Jax when she grew up. That made me curious about Jax’s story.

This is the working copy:

Just One Silver Fox, book six of Flatiron Five Fitness series of contemporary romances by Deborah CookeJacquie Morgan is an open book…
Married young and widowed soon after, Jacquie can’t remember a time that she wasn’t defending and protecting someone. When her baby goes to college and her nest is empty, she decides to indulge herself. Attending the F5F Valentine’s Day “come disguised as your favorite superhero” party seems like the perfect solution—but the better one is taking “Superman” home for the night, knowing exactly who is behind the mask.

Pierce Aston has a hidden past…
It’s a history he’d rather forget, so Pierce is building himself a new life, with no commitments or responsibilities. F5F club provides a perfect place to find his new balance, with the bonus opportunity to admire kickboxing queen and human resources manager, Jacquie. Going to a party in disguise is right in his toolbox, as is a covert mission for seduction—but being with Jacquie is far more addictive than Pierce expects. When she decides to help him by unravelling his secrets, will Pierce be able to deny his perceptive new lover, even to defend those he is sworn to protect?

Flatiron Five Fitness Cover Reveal

This winter, I’ve been doing some work on my main contemporary romance series and today’s the day to show you some of the results.

First up, Flatiron Five will have a new series name: Flatiron Five Fitness. The books have new titles and new covers – and Tyler has a brand new book.

Let’s look at the covers first – here they are in order. I just love them!

Just One Fake Date, book one of the Flatiron Five Fitness series of contemporary romances by Deborah Cooke Just One More Time, book two of the Flatiron Five Fitness series of contemporary romances by Deborah Cooke Just One Night Together, book three of the Flatiron Five Fitness series of contemporary romances by Deborah Cooke

Just One Hometown Hero, book four of the Flatiron Five Fitness series of contemporary romances by Deborah Cooke Two Weddings and a Baby, book five of the Flatiron Five Fitness series of contemporary romances by Deborah Cooke Just One Second Chance, book six of the Flatiron Five Fitness series of contemporary romances by Deborah Cooke

Just One Fake Date is a new book. Tyler is still the hero of book one, but he has a different partner now. I love how Shannyn challenges him and his assumptions, and how Tyler wins her wary heart. There won’t be a pre-order on this – I’ll just publish it as soon as it’s ready to go.

The other five books have new titles and covers, but are the same stories. They’re being tweaked, to ensure consistency with the changes to Tyler’s story, and to fix a few inconsistencies. Sonia’s name, for example, will now be spelled the same way throughout the entire series. And of course, any appearances from Amy will now be appearances by Shannyn – and Shannyn will be more involved with the club. Since these are just updates and not new stories, if you’ve purchased any of them, you’ll be able to download the new version as an update at your portal of choice. I plan to have the updates done in May and will update Goodreads then, too.

As a result of this transition being in the works, the website is a little wonky right now, since it still shows both series.

Just One More Time is Kyle and Lauren’s story.

Just One Night Together is Damon and Haley’s story.

Just One Hometown Hero is Cassie and Reid’s story.

Just One Second Chance is Theo and Lyssa’s story.

The most exciting thing for me is that this change sets up the series to continue. I’ll have news for you tomorrow about that.

What do you think of the new covers?

Dragon’s Heart Delayed

Dragon's Heart, book 3 of the DragonFate series of paranormal romances by Deborah CookeLike so many of you, I’m having trouble concentrating during these unsettling times. That’s affecting my writing and my productivity. As a result, I’ve pushed back the publication date on Dragon’s Heart (the DragonFate Novels #3) to July 22.

If you’ve preordered the book, you’ll probably get a notification from your portal of choice. If you ordered at Amazon, you’ll get two, because the date had to be moved 30 days at a time (instead of just 60 days all at once).

I apologize for the delay, but I know the book will be much better this way.
