Exciting News

A very exciting thing has just happened—the rights to three more of my books have reverted to me from the publisher. I now have the rights back to The Princess, The Damsel and The Heiress. The publishing house will be removing their digital editions from sale, but retain the right to sell the rest of their print stock.

I’ve removed the buy links from the book pages here on my website.

The original covers were designed by Alan Ayers and I always liked them. The books had step-backs, too.

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’ll be republishing these books in new editions, as soon as I can get everything pulled together. I’m also going to take this opportunity to rebrand the Bride Quest II books with new covers. There will still be two boxed sets, one of each trilogy, and they’ll have new covers, too.

The prices on the Bride Quest will be lower than they were from the original publisher, too.

Stay tuned for updates!

FIVE STAR Review for SWB in Audio

The Snow White Bride, a medieval romance by Claire DelacroixWoo HOO! There’s a new review for The Snow White Bride in audio at Books, Chocolate and Lip Gloss, and it’s fabulous.

Here’s a snippet:
The Snow White Bride is an engaging, heart gripping, and memorable novel about love, romance, trust, and sacrifice.  The writing is outstanding, the dialogue witty and clever, and the characters have a grace and depth that makes them seem to leap from the pages as real people that will astound and engage the reader.  

I listened to the audio version narrated by Saskia Maarleveld who did an outstanding job.  The narration was clear, crisp, and added character to the novel.  The Snow White Bride is a novel one can get lost in and the narration plays like a movie in the mind of the reader or like the telling of a favorite tale.  It’s a must read/listen to novel and delights from start to finish.”

The rating is FIVE STARS! Here’s the link to the whole review.
