The Dragon Legion Collection – Digital Edition

The Dragon Legion Collection, including all three Dragon Legion novellas and #9 in the Dragonfire series of paranormal romances, by Deborah CookeThe Dragon Legion Collection is now available in a digital edition, as well as a trade paperback edition. All three of the Dragon Legion novellas are included, and this volume is Dragonfire #9.

They will sacrifice anything to regain the loves they’ve lost…

When the Dragon Legion take custody of the darkfire crystal, Drake and his fellow dragon shifters fear that the sorcery trapped in the stone is bent on destroying them. In Kiss of Danger, Alexander defends his wife and son from a vicious killer who has followed him through time. In Kiss of Darkness, Damien enters the realm of the dead to fix an old mistake, but loses his shifting abilities. In Kiss of Destiny, Thad believes he can secure the future of all the dragon shifters known as the Pyr, if only he can win the heart of the elusive woman who sparks his firestorm. Will the darkfire demand all they have to give, or is the unpredictable magic giving these dragon warriors a second chance?

This collection contains all three Dragon Legion novellas, as well as an excerpt from Serpent’s Kiss (the next Dragonfire novel), a cast of characters and a Dragonfire glossary.

August Reviewer Contest

Here we go again – another month means another reviewer contest here on the blog.

There are two monthly contests here on the blog. This is the contest for people who post online reviews of my books. The idea is that if you read one of my books and like it, then post a review somewhere out there on the Internet, you can comment on this post to be eligible to win a signed book from me.

What you need to do to enter:

1. Read one of my books and like it. :-)
2. Write a review of the book and post it online – you can do that at Amazon, Barnes&Noble, AllRomanceEbooks, Smashwords, Sony, KOBO, Apple, Goodreads or Shelfari. (If I missed a place where you can post reviews, let me know!) Just a word to the wise, here: Amazon has been removing reviews. I’m not sure why, but you might want to post your review on Goodreads or Shelfari so it sticks.
3. Add a comment to this post, saying which book you reviewed. Your comment will be your contest entry.

N.B. Your email address will not be displayed to the world, just to me, and it needs to be right if I’m going to be able to contact you. Also, if you add a link to the book page in question, that’s okay but your comment will go to moderation. Your comment won’t appear immediately, but will be waiting on me. Once I approve it, it’ll be there for all to see. All comments with links go to moderation on this blog.

Please only enter once for each review. If you review multiple books in a month, you are welcome to enter multiple times. The contest is open to international winners.

The Prizes

The winner can choose a print book from the following list of my books – I’ll sign it and mail it to the winner. I do have some gaps in my collection, so here are the choices:

Claire Cross/Delacroix time travels – new trade paperback editions.

Bride Quest I (PRINCESS, DAMSEL, HEIRESS) – mass market copies of TD and TH only.

Bride Quest II (COUNTESS, BEAUTY, TEMPTRESS) – new trade paperback editions.

Rogues of Ravensmuir – new trade paperback editions. I have WARRIOR in mass market, too.

Jewels of Kinfairlie – new trade paperback editions. I have BEAUTY BRIDE in mass market, too.

The Renegade’s Heart – trade paperback edition.

The Highlander’s Curse – trade paperback edition.

The Prometheus Project – mass market paperback of GUARDIAN and REBEL.

Dragonfire – I have all titles in mass market, EXCEPT I have no way to give away the digital short story “Harmonia’s Kiss”. The Dragon Legion Collection in trade paperback is also available.

The Dragon Diaries – trade paperback edition, and UK trade of the first two titles.

The Coxwells – all in new trade paperback editions.

Of course, if you want something in French, Spanish or German, that’s a whole ‘nuther list!

As usual, for every 25 entries, I’ll draw for another prize.

Good luck, everyone!

The Last Highlander on Sale

ClaireDelacroix_TheLastHighlander_200px

I’m having  little sale this week. My time travel romance, The Last Highlander, is now discounted to just 99 cents at Amazon.

Here’s the excerpt on my site.

And here’s the Amazon link. It should come up at a discounted price on all the Amazon portals – but only until the end of the month.

Treat yourself to a weekend in Scotland with a medieval Highlander!

Digital Book Files

Well, the Herculean task is complete. All of my book files have been professionally formatted and uploaded again to all of the vendor sites. Twenty-four titles and seven sites! Yikes – I’m glad it’s done!

The updated editions are live at most sites, with two big exceptions:

1. Overdrive is still processing the new files for their Content Reserve site. That will probably take another two weeks. The Overdrive feed goes to Waterstones in the UK and Books-A-Million in the States, as well as others, so I’d count on that taking another couple of weeks beyond that. You’ll know the update has happened to the titles that have been listed there already, because the new titles I’ve uploaded will be available at the same time. Those titles include The Renegade’s Heart, The Countess and the Coxwell series.

2. Apple’s quality control process can take two weeks. They review each file before making the book available for sale. At this moment, the three books in The Bride Quest II trilogy and that Boxed Set, the three Rogues of Ravensmuir books and that Boxed Set, and the four time travel romances and that Boxed Set are sitting in the queue. I’ve asked Smashwords to take down their versions, so it’s likely the books will disappear from the Apple site completely before the new editions appear.

And now, onward to new books!

Kiss of Danger Released!

And there goes Alexander, out into the world!

This is the first of the Dragon Legion Novellas. There will be three in total, and each will be published digitally first. After the third one is published, they’ll be gathered into an anthology, which will be available in a digital edition and also in trade paperback.

The excerpt is right here.

Available at:
Amazon (the link is for Amazon.com but it will be available at other Amazon portals, too.)
Barnes & Noble
KOBO

Other buy links are coming – Apple is slow this week – but these ones are live now!

June Contest

Just like last month, this month we have a contest that anyone can enter, for a free signed copy of one of my books. This month’s prize is a copy of the new trade paperback edition of The Last Highlander.

All you have to do to be eligible to win is comment on this post. Tell me why you like time travel romances. I’ll pick a winner on the 30th. Good luck!

Overdrive’s Content Reserve

This winter, we have been working through the process of listing digital books with Overdrive for their Content Reserve portal. This is how many libraries buy digital books for their collections, and as of Friday, there are twelve Claire Delacroix books newly available on Overdrive’s Content Reserve. They are:

Once Upon A Kiss
The Last Highlander
The Moonstone
Love Potion #9

The Beauty
The Temptress

The Rogue
The Scoundrel
The Warrior

The Beauty Bride

Phew! I’m excited that the books are finally available. There will be more added later in the summer.

In the meantime, please tell your local librarian(s).

Time Travel Romances Boxed Set

I finally got this formatted and uploaded today. It’s live on Smashwords already, and should appear on Amazon over the weekend. This digital boxed set includes all four of my time travel romances at a special price:

Once Upon a Kiss

The Last Highlander

The Moonstone

and

Love Potion #9

 And here are the links for Smashwords and Amazon. It will eventually make its way to Barnes & Noble, KOBO, Apple and Sony, too.
