August Signed Book Giveaway

Last month’s print book giveaway was for a signed copy of The Countess in its new edition. Our winner was Marcelle Cole – she mentioned that on her move to Korea from the US, she watched the sun set over and over again. I thought that was a pretty cool detail.

The Princess, book #1 of the Bride Quest series of medieval romances by Claire DelacroixThis month, I’m celebrating the publication of The Princess, book #1 of the Bride Quest, in its new edition. I think the cover is just gorgeous! The giveaway is for a signed trade paperback copy with this new cover.

Remember that the digital edition of The Princess is discounted to 99 cents for the pre-order and first week on sale. Here’s your chance to start the Bride Quest at a special price!

Pre-order available at these portals:
Buy at iBooks Buy at Amazon.com Buy at Barnes&Noble Buy at GooglePlay Buy at Kobo

In The Princess, Brianna issues a challenge to the three suitors competing for her hand in marriage: she says she’ll marry the one who brings her a gift that makes her laugh. Did you ever challenge a suitor or make a special request of him/her? Did he (or she) surprise you? For your chance to win a signed print copy of The Princess from me, please tell me whether you’ve ever made a special request of a suitor (and even how it turned out!) in the comments below.

The contest is open to readers in the US, Canada, Australia, New Zealand, UK and Ireland.

I’ll choose a winner on September 1. Good luck everyone!

July Signed Book Giveaway

Last month, I celebrated the publication of Addicted to Love, by giving away a signed print copy of Simply Irresistible. Simply Irresistible is a contemporary romance and the first book in my Flatiron Five series and Addicted to Love is the second. The winner was Kate.

The Countess, book #4 of the Bride Quest series of medieval romances by Claire DelacroixThis month, I’m celebrating the re-publication of the Bride Quest as a single series with brand new covers. The new edition of The Princess will be an August release, The Damsel will be a September release and The Heiress will be an October release. The Countess and The Beauty are already available in their shiny new editions, and The Temptress will be republished this month.

This month’s prize book is a signed print copy of the new edition of The Countess. In this story, Eglantine leaves all she knows in France and moves to a remote holding in Scotland in the hopes of giving her daughters a better future—she doesn’t expect to find one for herself, but then there’s Duncan. 🙂

For your chance to win, comment on this post and tell me if you’ve ever made a big move – to a different city, state or country – and why. Good luck!

Edited to add – the winner for July is Marcelle Cole. I loved her story of watching the sun set over and over again as she moved to Korea. Thanks to everyone who participated – the August giveaway is up!

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!

The Beauty Bride on the Charts

The Beauty Bride, first book in the Jewels of Kinfairlie series of medieval Scottish romances by Claire DelacroixYesterday, I had a BookBub ad for The Beauty Bride and I’ve been pleasantly surprised by the results. This book is the first in my Jewels of Kinfairlie series and has been free for the past year. I thought it might be running out of juice as a freebie, but yesterday proved me to be very VERY wrong.

Wow. I’m amazed by how many units went out the door.

Let’s have a look at the results.

At Amazon this morning, The Beauty Bride is sitting at #8 overall free in the Kindle store, as well as #1 in Medieval Romance and #1 in Scottish Romance. I’m keeping some good company over at the ‘Zon today.
