The Damsel Pre-Order

The pre-order for the 2017 edition of The Damsel is live at Amazon, iBooks, Nook and Kobo!

The Damsel, book #2 of the Bride Quest series of medieval romances by Claire DelacroixOnce upon a time, the legendary knight Burke Fitzgavin galloped into Kiltorren Castle and fell in love with Alys, the lord’s orphaned niece. But her uncle was determined that Burke marry one of his homely daughters instead. Through tricks and lies, Burke was sent away believing that Alys wanted nothing of his heart.

Pledged to a Bride Quest, Burke has vowed not to return home until he finds his long-lost love. He returns to Kiltorren to discover that the fiery young innocent has become a woman, a servant on her uncle’s estate. Paying penance for Burke’s long-ago embrace, she wants nothing to do with him. Burke knows he must earn her trust again.

Even as he slowly rekindles her desire, Alys’ family attempts to thwart their romance—determined that Alys should not marry before her cousins do. But Burke is a warrior and this battle to win the hand and the heart of his one true love will be his greatest challenge ever…

In the Midnight Hour Cover

Book #3 of Flatiron Five is coming in January and it’s Damon’s book.

In the Midnight Hour, book #3 of the Flatiron Five series of contemporary romances by Deborah CookeDamon has a secret…
Every Friday night, the F5 partner who is the quiet powerhouse leaves on the dot of five. Where does he go? What does he do? His partners want to know, but Damon can’t bring himself to share the truth about his mom’s descent into dementia. She’s the only family he’s ever known, the anchor in his life, and he can’t imagine how he’ll go on without her. In the middle of the night, when he’s most alone, he wants to control all the variables for someone, to prove he’s not completely powerless. He doesn’t expect to find such a willing, or seductive, volunteer.

Haley loves solving mysteries…
Especially ones like the gorgeous guy who visits her favorite patient every Friday night. He must be Natasha’s son, but is he also the model on the billboard for that fitness club downtown? Where did he learn therapeutic massage? Even though she’s a nurse, Haley’s interest in his skill isn’t just professional. She wants to feel those hands on her own skin, for as long as possible. Late one night, she takes a chance and asks for a lesson from him, only to learn that she has a hunger for the sensation only Damon can give.

A Cover Tease

Charmed at Christmas, a Regency romance anthology set at Castle KeyvnorI’ve hinted at this upcoming project but will tell you a little more today. (There’s more in my May newsletter, too.)

We’re returning to Castle Keyvnor for Christmas!

There will be four new anthologies published this fall, each including three Regency romance novellas, revisiting the characters at Castle Keyvnor as they assemble for a wedding at Christmas. (Twelve novellas in all!)

My novella is Daphne’s story, and will be book#2 of the Brides of North Barrows when released on its own next spring. Daphne will get her duke – plus a lot more than she’s bargained for. My story will be in the anthology Charmed at Christmas.

The cover reveals will be in my June newsletter, along with pre-order links. The books will go on sale in September.

If you haven’t visited Castle Keyvnor, the four Regency romance anthologies of the Haunting of Castle Keyvnor remain available.

If you want to stalk the new series, it has a landing page right here.

The Princess Pre-Order

The Princess, book #1 of the Bride Quest series of medieval romances by Claire DelacroixPrincess Brianna was determined to marry for love despite King Henry’s decree that she wed one of the sons of the man who had conquered her family’s castle. So Brianna issued a seemingly impossible challenge: he who returned with a gift that made her laugh would win her hand. And thus began the bride quest of the three brothers Fitzgavin. Burke and Rowan, knights both, set out at her command.

Only Luc remained, refusing to indulge the whims of the glorious Irish princess. Even Brianna’s legendary beauty could not tempt him—until she invaded his senses…and his soul. But Luc thought a princess had no place in the life of a battle-weary warrior who vowed to lay down his sword forever—until he was forced to take up arms to protect the fair maiden who had seized his heart by divine right.

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!

Addicted to Love, a contemporary romance by Deborah CookeKyle wants it all…
Kyle Stuyvesant doesn’t believe in love and romance. His parents taught him that there’s no such thing as forever, and he took the lesson to heart. After all, there’s only one woman who ever tempted him to more than a single hot night together. Fortunately for his convictions, she’s married to another guy. Problem solved—until Lauren’s marriage collapses and Kyle isn’t just the bearer of bad news, but the man she turns to for comfort.

Lauren demands his all…
When Lauren’s marriage implodes, she wants to lose herself in pleasure and sensation. Who knows that territory better than Kyle, the eternal playboy, who seduced her so deliciously years before? It was a night Lauren never forgot, and now that she wants to forget everything, Kyle is the only man she wants. Will she be able to accept his terms of no love or romance? Or will Lauren convince Kyle to take a chance on wanting more?

The Dragons of Incendium: The First Collection

The first digital bundle and trade paperback in the Incendium series is available for pre-order, to deliver on May 25.

The Dragons of Incendium: The First Collection including the first six works in Deborah Cooke's paranormal romance series

The Dragons of Incendium: The First Collection

Once, in the Kingdom of Incendium, there were twelve princesses of the realm, each a dragon shifter. Each fiery and passionate. Each possessed of an appetite for pleasure that only her destined mate can satisfy. Twelve men are expected in Incendium, each with special powers of his own, each with the gift to claim one dragon princess’s heart forever.

In Wyvern’s Mate, Drakina intends to fulfill her obligation as the oldest daughter by seducing her destined mate and winning her freedom. Troy’s lovemaking leaves Drakina hungry for more, until she discovers that he’s an assassin and she’s his intended victim. Will his MindBending powers condemn him in the fiery princess’s view or see him saved?

In Wyvern’s Prince, Gemma agrees to an arranged marriage with the crown prince of Regalia, to build an alliance between the two kingdoms. She expects duty, not love, but finds both when her new husband’s discredited twin brother proves to be her destined mate—but Venero has been enchanted. Can Gemma break the spell cast upon her prince or will she share his fate?

In Wyvern’s Warrior, Thalina intercepts an intruder in Incendium’s palace, allowing herself to be taken captive to learn his plan. To her delight, Acion is a highly developed android and she wants nothing more than to study him thoroughly, especially his amorous abilities—but Acion’s presence on Incendium violates the law. Will he be exterminated before Thalina satisfies her curiosity?

This bundle includes the first three romances in the Dragons of Incendium series, as well as three short stories linked to the series: Nero’s Dream, Arista’s Legacy, and Kraw’s Secret.

Available in digital and trade paperback format.

Back on GooglePlay

Simply Irresistible, a contemporary romance by Deborah Cooke and first in the Flatiron Five series.Last fall, I removed my books from GooglePlay because I had issues with pricing. I heard from a few of you that you wanted the books to be available there, so I’ve been seeking a solution.

This past week, I’ve taken advantage of another option. I’m using an aggregator called Pronoun to deliver my titles to GooglePlay. I’ve only uploaded about half of my booklist, and most of those are still in the process of being listed on GP,  but they’re on their way. I’ll get the rest uploaded this week. I’ll have to update the links here on the site when the books go live on GP.

As of this morning, The True Love Brides Boxed Set, The Crusader’s Vow, and Simply Irresistible are now available on GooglePlay. We’ll see when the books that were at GP before appear whether the reviews are carried between editions.

The other good thing is that Pronoun’s royalty rate is better for books priced over $9.99US than several portals offer to publishers who upload directly. As a result, my more expensive boxed sets will now be available at all portals, instead of just at iBooks and Kobo. The True Love Brides Boxed Set was just published to Amazon this morning, for example. Here’s the new link.

The True Love Brides Boxed Set of medieval romances by Claire DelacroixThe author pages at Pronoun look pretty cool. I like that they allow books in a series to be displayed together and in order. They also provide the links at all portals, even the ones that they aren’t distributing the books to.

You can also see how far I’ve gotten with my uploading.

Here’s Claire’s author page at Pronoun.
