The first full-length paranormal romance in my DragonFate series will be published in November. Pre-orders are live at most portals, and there’s a new excerpt posted on the Dragonfire Novels website. (DragonFate is set in the same world.) Meet the heroine, Bree, in the prologue from the upcoming Dragon’s Kiss.
Dragon shifter and Pyr warrior Kristofer follows the spark of his firestorm into Maeve’s dark realm, only to discover that it’s an illusion and a trap, not his firestorm at all. The fake mate who lures him into Fae is another species threatened by Maeve – Brianna is a Valkyrie, whose sister has been imprisoned by the dark queen. Brianna has to collect a Pyr soul to save her sister, but Kristofer doesn’t intend to die just yet. Trapped by Maeve, Kristofer and Brianna reluctantly join forces to save her sister—even when they discover that their skills are complementary, they know that there can be no future between a mortal Pyr and an immortal collector of souls. How much will either surrender to triumph over Maeve? And what will they do when the firestorm sparks in truth?
Coming November 26, 2019

Read an excerpt from Dragon’s Kiss
At the end of September, the Dragonfire Novels came out of KDP Select, which means that they’re available at all portals again (not just Amazon). I’ve also made Kiss of Fire a free series starter at all portals. This is a great time to meet the Pyr!
The Prometheus Project has also come out of KDP Select, so those four titles are also available at all portals again. Phew.
The Dragons of Incendium have remained in KDP Select for another term, so if you are a Kindle Unlimited subscriber, you can read about those dragon shifter princesses from space free.
This summer, I put some books into KDP Select, which means you can read them free if you’re a Kindle Unlimited subscriber. This was an experiment – I think KU skews to new content not backlist, and also to frequent publicataion. My suspicions have been proven right this summer, at least for my books. As a result, these titles will be going back into wide distribution at the end of their 90 day term in KU and I wanted to give you fair warning of the change.
The first three books in the Secret Heart Ink series of contemporary romances are currently in KU, but will finish their term September 1 and go wide again. This will make them available at all portals in time for the publication of the fourth and final book in the series, Under the Mistletoe.
Coven of Mercy and An Elegy for Melusine will also finish their term in KU on September 1 and go wide. This will make them available at all portals before Dragon’s Kiss is published, which is good since they are connected to the DragonFate Novels. I’ll also republish the collection Beguiled (which includes both of those stories) at all portals in September.
If you’re a KU subscriber, grab your copies this month!
I’ve enrolled several of my paranormal romance series into KDP Select this week, which means you can read them free in Kindle Unlimited.
First up, The Dragonfire Novels. This series is complete and features dragon shifter heroes on a quest to save the earth from evil Slayers – but destined love keeps complicating their mission.
Start the series with Kiss of Fire.
Visit the Dragonfire Novels series page at Amazon.com
The Dragons of Incendium series featured dragon shifter princesses from space and the men bold enough to love them.
Here’s a link to Wyvern’s Mate at Amazon.com.
And here’s a link to the series page at Amazon.com.
I’ve also enrolled the Prometheus Project urban fantasy romance series, although there’s a bit of an issue with Fallen that Amazon is straightening out.
My Claire Delacroix time travel romances are currently enrolled in KDP Select.
You can read Coven of Mercy and An Elegy for Melusine free in KU right now.
And finally, my Secret Heart Ink series is also enrolled in KDP Select, although it’s just a teensy tiny heart tattoo that might have magical powers in that contemporary romance series.
With the publication of Maeve’s Book of Beasts, it’s clear that a lot of my other paranormal heroes are living in the world of Dragonfire. As a result, I’ve created some new tabs and moved some pages onto this site.
You’ll find the Prometheus Project living under the new tab Angels (which are really all Fallen Angels), and Coven of Mercy is living under another new tab called Vampires.
The Prometheus Project is a complete four-book series set in a dystopian future featuring fallen angel heroes, but there’s a dead fallen angel at the beginning of Maeve’s Book of Beasts. I think it’s fair to assume that he has something in common with my future-set angels. That series begins with Fallen – I hope you like Montgomery as much as I do!
Coven of Mercy is a short story and vampire romance. Micah, the hero of that story, has a cameo appearance in Maeve’s Book of Beasts, and Sebastian – the vampire and continuing character in DragonFate – is a reluctant member of Micah’s coven.
The Dragonfire Novels, the Prometheus Project and the Dragons of Incendium are moving into Kindle Unlimited this month. Coven of Mercy and An Elegy for Melusine (which explains Mel and Raymond’s backstory) are already there.
So, if you’re interested in my paranormal romance (and urban fantasy romance) hop on over to the Dragonfire Novels website and follow that blog.
There’s a sale running at Kobo on books written by Canadian authors from June 27 through July 4. When you buy one book, you can buy a second for 50% off! The thirteen participating authors are:
Kate St. James
All of these titles will be enrolled in Kindle Unlimited in July, just FYI.
As usual at Kobo, there are territorial landing pages.
Wait. Is it August 2 already?
No, it’s not, but I made a mistake setting up my very first print pre-order, which means that the print edition of Maeve’s Book of Beasts is already available to buy online. So, since the book is done, it only made sense to let the ebook slide into the world as well. Here we go!
Careful what you wish for…
A mysterious book given to Sylvia by a handsome stranger plunges her into a hidden world, awakening her ability to see a paranormal realm and the Others who live in it. It also makes her a target for the Dark Fae who want the book back—and who will kill her to reclaim it. The stranger, Sebastian, becomes Sylvia’s reluctant defender—but his ability to influence her dreams is almost as dangerous as the fact that he’s a vampire. On the run with Sebastian, Sylvia learns about the plan of Maeve, Queen of the Dark Fae, to eliminate all other paranormal creatures. Possession of the book means that Sylvia is caught in the middle of a war between the Dark Fae and the Others, with a predator as her only ally. If she can decipher the book, will that help the Others to fight for their survival? Should she trust Sebastian? Or does the vampire who ignores all the rules have a secret plan of his own?

In Serpent’s Kiss, Thorolf is targeted by the Slayer Chen to complete an ancient spell, and caught between love and duty. According to Chandra, his destined mate and a known thief, Thorolf’s partner Viv has lied to him and is allied with Chen. Worse, Chandra insists that the solution lies in Thorolf’s past. Can he trust the firestorm to guide him to the truth, even if it means bonding with a goddess?
In Firestorm Forever, Sloane, the Apothecary of the Pyr, is determined to save humans and the earth from a deadly plague brought into the world by the Slayer, Jorge. His only ally is Samantha, a researcher who hates the Pyr because her son was killed by the virus. When the firestorm sparks between them, can they move beyond physical attraction and their own emotional wounds to work together to save the world? The big finish to the Dragonfire series includes two more firestorms—those of Drake and Marco, the Sleeper—and the combined efforts of all the Pyr to defeat the Slayers forever.

Dragonfire Elixir is the second digital bundle in The Dragonfire Novels: The Complete Series and includes three books that feature the battle between the Pyr, dragon shifters pledged to defend the treasures of the earth, and the evil Slayers, dragon shifters bent on destroying both the Pyr and the humans they protect. These three books feature the Pyr‘s mission to destroy the Dragon’s Blood Elixir which gives the Slayers the power to raise the dead.
In Winter Kiss, Delaney Shea who has been forcefed the Elixir is determined to destroy its source alone, no matter the cost to himself. On the eve of his suicide mission, he feels the spark of his firestorm and seduces Ginger Sinclair to leave a legacy for the future. But Ginger isn’t so easily abandoned, even for her own safety—she follows Delaney and becomes part of the mission to destroy the Elixir’s source, and save Delaney for herself and their son.
In Whisper Kiss, Niall Talbot has vowed to hunt down and eliminate the remaining shadow dragons, then is targeted by the Slayers himself. When his firestorm ignites and his mate—the feisty tattoo artist and dragon enthusiast Rox Kincaid—is at risk, Niall will do anything to defend her—even abandon his own assumptions when opposites attract.
In Darkfire Kiss, Rafferty Powell is bent on the destruction of the Slayer Magnus, since the two old foes have exchanged challenge coins and vowed to battle to the death. He doesn’t expect his destined mate to step between them, but reporter Melissa Smith will take any risk to get the real story—even enter the dragon’s den, fight fire with fire, and fall in love with the greatest romantic of the Pyr. Will it be enough to save them both from Magnus’ vengeance?
