There’s really nothing like getting print copies of one of my books. The thrill never fades. Last week, the print copies of One Hot Summer Night arrived. Here are a few of them:
“ONE HOT SUMMER NIGHT is a story of second chances; a rekindling, of a sort, for two people whose lives went in opposite directions eventually finding one another when the time was right. The premise is heart breaking and emotional; the romance is passionate; the characters struggle to move on from the past. Deborah Cooke invites the reader into a spirited yet tender, revealing and sensual tale of family, loss, commitment, and love.” —The Reading Cafe

This past weekend, I received the trade paperback print editions of In the Midnight Hour, so Damon and Haley’s book is now available for sale in my online store. You can check out the listing in my Selz store right here.
And there’s something new!
Since I have the link to BookFunnel for delivering digital content, I’ve added a feature to the online store: if you buy a print copy of a book from me, you’ll get the ebook of that same title for free. I’m pretty excited about this: I’ve wanted to offer this since I originally set up the store, but there was no easy mechanism to make it happen. Now there is! I’m still setting up the files for this, but right now, the Flatiron Five books are done.
You can browse all the print books in the store right here.
Finally, I’m adding more hard cover Collectors’ Editions. There’s a hard cover edition of Kiss of Fire available for pre-order in the store right now. This option includes the hard cover signed edition of the book, the postage (to US or Canada) and a copy of the ebook, delivered by BookFunnel. Please comment here if you’re outside the US and Canada and interested in this book – I’ll need to figure out some postage costs. Also, I may put together a second version – it would be $10 more and include dragon swag. What would the swag be? Beaded bookmarks, maybe book charms, maybe temporary tattoos. I can think of lots of fun dragon-themed goodies! If you’re interested in that, please let me know. I’ll list that option when I can show you the swag. These kinds of bundles work best if there are at least 50 people interested. Talk to me about it!
Today’s the day! In the Midnight Hour is now available!
Damon has a secret…
Every Friday night, the F5 partner who is the quiet powerhouse leaves on the dot of five without explanation. Where does Damon go? What does he do? His partners want to know, but Damon can’t bring himself to share the truth about his mom’s battle with cancer. She’s the anchor in his life and he doesn’t know 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 him and his skill isn’t just professional. She wants to feel those hands on her own skin, for as long as possible. One night, she takes a chance and asks for a lesson from him, only to discover that she has a hunger for the sensation only Damon can satisfy.

One Knight Enchanted, book #1 of my new Rogues & Angels series of medieval romances, will be published January 9 at Amazon.
The publication of this book is where marketing plans from 2017 collide with marketing plans for 2018. 🙂 Right now, One Knight Enchanted is set to go into Kindle Unlimited immediately, which was last year’s plan for historical romances. A number of you have contacted me, though, saying that you’d like to buy it at a portal other than Amazon. And my 2018 plan involves making my books available to you first through my online store, which can’t happen when a book is in Kindle Unlimited (because those books have to be available exclusively at Amazon.)
But I have a solution! On January 9, I’ll have the option to remove the book from Kindle Unlimited. I’m going to do that. I’ve also made it available to you today through my online store (as well as at Amazon) at the same price as Amazon. (Those are the rules). The delivery of sales from the online store will be handled by Book Funnel, so that you can be sure to get Rolfe and Annelise’s story onto your device of choice. You’ll have two weeks to buy the book in my online store.
Pre-order eBook for January 9 delivery:
• Buy eBook directly from Claire (Available January 2 – 15)
• Order a signed Print Edition from Claire.
On January 16, One Knight Enchanted will be enrolled in Kindle Unlimited and be available only at Amazon.
Last fall, I participated in an anthology of Regency romance novellas called The Haunting of Castle Keyvnor. My novella, Something Wicked This Way Comes, was included in the volume, Spellbound. All of those books remain available, but Something Wicked This Way Comes is available on its own in a digital edition.
Seven years ago, Sophia Brisbane lost everything—her father, her brother, her family fortune—but worse, was rejected by the man she loved. She’s determined not to yearn for the past and its pleasures—until she encounters Lucien de Roye again. Although he knew Sophia could never be his own, Lucien vowed to retrieve her squandered inheritance—even wagering his very soul to a demon. When Sophia learns what he has done, no force on heaven or earth will convince her to let him pay the demon’s due, no matter what the cost to herself.
Buy it today at Amazon, Apple, B&N or KOBO – or buy it directly from me in my onlines store in EPUB or MOBI
You can also download the prologue from this story free in my online store—here’s the EPUB and here’s the MOBI.
I’ve put together series bundles of print books in my online store and priced them at a discount. This is a good way to get a whole series in matching editions and formats, and to have them signed, too. Each series bundle comes with a free tote bag.
All prices in the store are in Canadian dollars, so there’s a discount in the currency conversion for those of you south of the border. I think the Canadian dollar is worth about 75 cents US these days, which looks like a 25% discount to me.
We also pack each order from the store with postcards and other goodies.
In the Series Bundles category of the store, you’ll find Bargain Bundles of Bargain Bundles of The Bride Quest II, The Coxwells, The Jewels of Kinfairlie, The Prometheus Project and The Rogues of Ravensmuir. You’ll also find Series Bundles of The Champions of St. Euphemia, The Jewels of Kinfairlie (with the new covers) and The True Love Brides Series.
If you like the mass market editions of my books (or the Berkley trade paperbacks of The Coxwells), be sure to look in the Collectors’ Editions category of the store. Buy three or more books from any department and I’ll include a free tote bag – so if you build your own series, you’ll still get a bag to carry them in.
I’m doing some summer cleaning and sorting, and have a sale on signed print books in my online store. Today through August 1, you can save an additional 20% on print books in stock, even on titles already discounted.
The store now calculates shipping for US and Canadian destinations. It accepts VISA, Mastercard and Paypal, and runs in CANADIAN dollars. If you’re in the States, that will save you even more!
Here’s the Signed Book category in the store, which includes sale titles. You’ll need to use this code at check-out to save an additional 20%:
As always, orders will be packed with bookmarks and postcards, too.
Wyvern’s Mate, first in my new series of paranormal romances featuring dragon shifter heroines, is available in my online store today. It ships from major online portals June 14.
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.
Troy will do whatever is necessary to earn his freedom from solitary confinement on the penal colony of Xanto, even assassinate a princess of Incendium. Being a MindBender, he has a serious advantage as a predator and thinks the princess in question doesn’t have a chance. Only one of them can survive and Troy knows who it will be—until he meets Drakina.
Royal dragon shifter Drakina has a quest of her own, to seduce her destined mate and conceive the crown prince of Incendium. Her father will free her from all other responsibilities if she completes this one task. Drakina craves her independence enough to seduce the unattractive Terran who is the Carrier of the Seed. She’s sure it will be a quick seduction—until she meets Troy.
Worlds collide when Troy and Drakina meet, and passion flares. The attraction is so powerful that they both choose to put their goals aside for one night of passion together. When their respective secrets are revealed, will the truth turn one against the other? Or will destiny allow this star-crossed pair to save each other and their unborn son?

Wyvern’s Mate will ship on June 14 from major portals but is available TODAY from my online store. The print edition is also available now from Createspace and Amazon, and includes the short story Nero’s Dream.
