The Crusader's Handfast, #5 in the Champions of Saint Euphemia series of medieval romances by Claire DelacroixA pilgrimage to Jerusalem with her mistress has left the maid Radegunde determined to live every moment to the fullest. She dreads the return to routine and her inevitable marriage to a reliable man, so convinces the warrior Duncan to make merry with her while their respective masters linger in Paris. Dancing and singing are not the sole revels in Radegunde’s plans, for she means to taste passion with this man who snared her attention in Venice. Duncan is convinced his own heart is lost forever, but Radegunde’s allure cannot be denied. When he surrenders to her seduction, Duncan suggests a handfast, knowing that even this honor is far less than she deserves. Radegunde, however, is not interested in half-measures, and resolves to win Duncan’s love, no matter what the cost. Will she succeed in her quest? Or will their paths part forever, and do as much too soon?

Come meet Merlyn and Ysabella!

The Rogue, book #1 of the Rogues of Ravensmuir trilogy of Scottish medieval romances by Claire DelacroixDear Reader:

Seductive and mysterious, Merlyn was the laird of Ravensmuir — never had a man so stirred my body and soul. I gave myself to him — willingly, trustingly, passionately — and we soon wed. Then a horrible revelation emerged, shattering my innocence and my marriage…

Five years later, Merlyn returned to my doorstep, desperate for my help. The scoundrel swore he was haunted by memories of me, that a treasure locked in Ravensmuir could clear his name. Yet I could not surrender to his will again. Now he is said to be murdered and Ravensmuir has fallen into my hands.

But even as I cross the threshold of this cursed keep, I hear his whisper in the darkness, feel his caress in the night, and I know that Merlyn has told me but part of his tale. Should I do as is right and expose his lair? Or dare I trust my alluring but deceptive spouse – the rogue who destroyed my heart?

— Ysabella

A New Twist

Here’s something different we decided to do with our multi-author boxed set, Border Brotherhood – we’ve made it available in a print edition, too.

Border Brotherhood: Medieval Heroes of England and Scotland

It’s a trade paperback with all three books included – unabridged – so comes in just over 800 pages. The list price is $29.99 US, although Amazon has already discounted it a little this morning. The thing is that in trade paperback, most of our books come out more expensive: The Beauty Bride, my included title, is list priced at $14.99, for example, Kathryn’s Fragments of Grace is $13.99 in print, and Suzan’s Rowan’s Lady is $12.00. If you like to have print copies of your books, you save almost $11.00 buying the bundle.

This morning, the print edition is listed on Amazon, right here. You’ll see that when you buy the print edition first, you’ll get the Kindle edition for free. It’ll perk out to other online portals after the on sale date, so will only be available for pre-order at Amazon.
