September Update

September was another busy month! Let’s take a look at what was completed.

Pre-Orders

Probably the most exciting thing for me was listing the pre-order for Aidan’s book, Just A Small Town Romance, which is book one of my upcoming contemporary romance series, the Heroes of Harte’s Harbor.

I also have a cover for the next DragonFate Novel, which is Dragon’s Wolf, coming next spring and available for pre-order now. This is Arach and Wynter’s book—I’m looking forward to writing about a dragon shifter who’s fated mate is a wolf shifter with other plans.

I also listed the pre-order for January for the next book in my Blood Brothers series by Claire Delacroix—The Hunter & the Heiress will be available in ebook, trade paperback, hardcover large print and audio, too.

Just the Wrong Twin, book nine of the Flatiron Five Fitness series of contemporary romances by Deborah Cooke

I’m also continuing to work on Sonia and Nate’s story, Just the Wrong Twin. This is book nine in the Flatiron Five Fitness series and will be published in ebook and trade paperback in October. This is a friends-to-lovers, fling-to-forever, mistaken identity book and I really like it.

I’ve also made some decisions about Flatiron Five Fitness. There will be one more story in the series, which will probably be a novella, called When Annika Met Thom. I’m hoping to publish it in March. This means that it’s time for boxed sets—the first one will publish in December and will include the first three books in the series. I haven’t posted that pre-order yet, but will show you the covers (and hopefully have the first one loaded) at the end of October.

I’m leaving Flatiron Five Fitness for the moment and it will be in a good place for a break. I still have ideas for more stories at the club, but will focus on the Heroes of Harte’s Harbor for the time being. My hope is to publish a new book in that series every four months and the plan is for seven books in total. I have five covers already, so that’s motivating! These stories are all set in the same fictional world, so some F5F characters will make appearances in HHH. I haven’t forgotten Pierce’s new venture, Silver Fox Security, either.


New Releases

A Baron for All Seasons, book #3 of the Brides of North Barrows series of Regency romances by Claire Delacroix

Claire had a new release in September, A Baron for All Seasons, which is book three in my Brides of North Barrows series of Regency romance novellas. This is a second chance romance and one that many readers have been waiting on. I also finished the fourth and final book in this series, A Most Inconvenient Earl, during the summer and put it up for pre-order for March. It’ll also be included in a holiday anthology publishing in October.

Also for Claire, I enrolled most of her medieval romances in Kindle Unlimited this month. The exceptions are the Brides of North Barrows series and the Blood Brothers series, but everything else is in KU.


Translations

Once again, I had several new translations published in August. Let’s have a look at a summary:

In Spanish, we’re continuing with Flatiron Five Fitness and have finished The Jewels of Kinfairlie—in September, I published Just One Hometown Hero and the Ballad of Rosamunde in Spanish editions. I also published Dragon’s Kiss in Italian in September.

Well, that gives me a sense of accomplishment! On to October…

Just One Hometown Hero in Spanish

The Spanish edition of Cassie and Reid’s book is available this week! There will be a trade paperback as well, but the cover isn’t completed yet. It’ll be done and available soon. In the meantime, the ebook is live at most portals:


Just One Hometown Hero, book four of the Flatiron Five Fitness series of contemporary romances by Deborah Cooke, Spanish edition

Cassie tiene todo lo que quiere…
La vida de Cassie Wilson es prácticamente perfecta, con un trabajo de ensueño, grandes socios y la libertad de hacer lo que le plazca.  Lo último que quiere es volver a Montrose River, la ciudad de la que estaba ansiosa por salir, y visitar el pasado.  Pero cuando su mejor amiga le pide que sea madrina, Cassie ve la oportunidad de marcar una diferencia en la vida de Emily.  Quizás enseñarle a Emily a soñar en grande sea su legado.  Además, un fin de semana en el Medio Oeste no la matará.  Ella regresará a Manhattan tan rápido que no tendrán tiempo de extrañarla en Flatiron 5 Fitness.

Reid sabe lo que quiere…  
Reid Jackson está convencido de que hay que atraer a la suerte.  Mantener los ojos abiertos ha sido el secreto de su triunfo sobre su pasado, junto con mucho trabajo duro.  Puede que él haya venido del lado equivocado de los caminos, y puede que tenga la reputación de ser malo hasta la médula, pero ha construido su propia marca de éxito.  Cuando Cassie Wilson regresa rápidamente a la ciudad, Reid está listo para descubrir si ella realmente es diferente a los demás.  Cassie le da la vuelta a sus expectativas, cumpliendo sus sueños y cambiando su rutina.  Pero cuando Cassie decide que quiere más que una aventura, Reid sabe que él no es el hombre que ella quiere que sea, ¿puede Cassie convencerlo de que quiera más?

August Update

August was a busy month!

Pre-Orders

First of all, I finished two Regency romance novellas and listed then for pre-order. A Baron for All Seasons turned out to not be a Christmas romance, so it reverted to its original cover and will be published in September. An Most Inconvenient Earl is a Christmas romance, as well as Eurydice’s story. It finishes out the Brides of North Barrows series – it will be included in a Christmas anthology, coming in October, then available on its own in March.

Just the Wrong Twin, book nine of the Flatiron Five Fitness series of contemporary romances by Deborah Cooke

I’ve also been working on Sonia and Nate’s story, Just the Wrong Twin, which is a lot of fun. The first third of a book always involves a lot of back and forth for me, and reconsideration of the structure, as well as getting to know more about the characters.

You can see some of my ideas about Nate and Sonia on the Pinterest board for the book. This story will be published in October.

I’m talking to the cover designer about Aidan’s book. Since that will be first in a new series, getting this cover right will take a little longer. I have set up the pre-order at Apple and Amazon for this book, since they’ll allow it withough a cover. Just A Small Town Romance is coming next July.. This story is a lot of fun, a second chance romance with a lot of energy between the couple. I love Aidan already, but Meredith is just so perfect for him – she’s no pushover for his easygoing charm, or at least it seems that way to Aidan…

Dragon's Kiss, book two of the DragonFate novels, a series of paranormal romances by Deborah Cooke

Over in the land of paranormal romance, my dragons are stirring again. I have a pre-order up for the next DragonFate novel. This one is Arach and Wynter’s story, another enemies-to-lovers story with a reluctant mate. Wynter has her own agenda and it doesn’t include a firestorm, a hot dragon shifter, or a baby. Can Arach change her mind? Dragon’s Wolf will be available in May. The pre-orders are up at Apple and Amazon even though the cover is still in the works.

I also have a flash sale on the other three books in the series until the end of August, so you can catch it if you’re quick. If you haven’t started to read that series, now’s the time to catch up!


New Releases

I published a new boxed set from Claire of series starters called First Knights. This sampler is a good deal and a chance to see which of my medieval romance series you like best. It’s just $2.99US through the end of August.

The Flatiron Five Tattoo Boxed Set came out at the end of July, but I’ll include it here to balance the page. 🙂

Translations

I had a bumper crop of new translations published in August. Let’s have a look at a summary:

In Spanish, we’re continuing with Flatiron Five Fitness and The Jewels of Kinfairlie—we’ll finish F5F by the end of 2021 as well as The True Love Brides. I have a new Portuguese translation of The Crusader’s Heart and that translator is working on The Crusader’s Kiss. Another translator has finished Maeve’s Book of Beasts in Portuguese—she’s continuing with Dragon’s Kiss. A different Spanish translator has finished Dragon’s Kiss and is working on Dragon’s Heart. And one of my Italian translation teams has finished Dragon’s Kiss. They’re going to work on An Elegy for Melusine next.

First Knights – A New Boxed Set

My alter ego Claire Delacroix has a new boxed set available this week called First Knights. It includes four series starters, each a full-length medieval romance novel. If purchased individually, these books would cost almost $20 US – although one book, The Beauty Bride, is sometimes a free read – and the bundle is priced at just $2.99 through the end of August. What a great deal! If you like medieval romance, here’s a chance to sample four of my series.


First Knights, a boxed set of four medieval romance series starters by Claire Delacroix

First Knights includes four medieval romance series starters from the Queen of Medieval Romance, Claire Delacroix. Be swept away to a realm of pageantry and chivalry, where each knight competes for his lady’s favor, each lady knows her heart’s desire—and love conquers all. Included in this digital bundle are four first-in-series medieval romances: One Knight Enchanted, The Princess, The Beauty Bride and The Crusader’s Bride.

In One Knight Enchanted—book #1 of the Rogues & Angels series—Annelise seeks refuge at a keep when she is separated from her party and pursued by hungry wolves. The price of admission is marriage to its mysterious lord, and she agrees—only to find herself in a luxurious palace, and seduced by her secretive spouse. Her new husband believes he is doomed, but Annelise knows that love can conquer all. Can she save her husband from the curse placed upon him, or will breaking her promise to him cost any chance to win his wary heart?

In The Princess—book #1 of the Bride Quest series—Brianna is obliged to choose one of three brothers as her husband. Instead, she challenges them, vowing to wed the one who brings her a gift that makes her laugh. She has no intention of laughing at all, but one brother, Luc, declines to follow her whim. Sparks fly between the willful princess and the disillusioned knight after his brothers depart, and from this battle of wills, an unexpected love dawns. When the other knights return, will Luc take up his sword again to defend the maiden who has claimed his heart, or will Brianna be compelled to wed another?

In The Beauty Bride—book #1 of the Jewels of Kinfairlie series—Madeline flees her arranged marriage to the notorious outlaw Rhys FitzHenry, only to be pursued and seduced by her stubborn betrothed. Is she just a possession to this man who wants a son above all else, or can she capture his love for her own? Why does Rhys tell her so many stories, and what do they reveal about her enigmatic husband’s hidden heart?

In The Crusader’s Bride—book #1 of the Champions of St. Euphemia series—the widow Ysmaine makes a marriage of convenience, accepting the offer of a Templar knight in Jerusalem who is leaving the order to return to France. When their party is attacked, Ysmaine learns that Gaston carries a secret treasure in trust for the Templars, Ysmaine knows that her new husband’s survival may depend upon her assistance—and that this man of honor has stolen her heart. Can she persuade him of the merit of love and trust before it’s too late?

The First Knights digital boxed set includes four thrilling series starters by Claire Delacroix, bursting with medieval romance, adventure, suspense, and love everlasting. Be swept away to Claire’s medieval world in this introduction to four of her medieval romance series today!

Olivia no cree en la magia ni en el amor eterno; después de todo, ella es una científica, pero ganarse un tatuaje de Chynna la convence de arriesgarse.

Spencer cree en lo eterno...
Pero Spencer adivina la verdad casi de inmediato. Es bueno que Olivia lo desee; tenerla sola en su cabaña es la oportunidad perfecta para enseñarle a confiar en las sensaciones y en él. Una tormenta interfiere con el plan de Olivia, lo que le da a Spencer más tiempo para trabajar en su propia magia persuasiva.
