The Hunter & the Heiress Update

The Hunter & the Heiress has been loaded at all of the portals, which means there are more pre-order links today. You’ll find the book listed for pre-order at GooglePlay now, and it will become available to libraries, too. Remember that this book will be in wide publication for a week before becoming exclusive to Amazon and being enrolled in Kindle Unlimited.

The two print editions – trade paperback and hardcover large print – should also be available next week, and the audiobook will probably be available in March.

I have updated the Blood Brothers Character List here on the website and will work on the Pinterest page this weekend—as well as compose some more posts about my research for you.

This one came right down to the wire, but I love the book and hope you do, too!


The Hunter & the Heiress, book two of the Blood Brothers series of medieval Scottish romances by Claire Delacroix

Nothing could be further from Amaury de Vries’ expectations than joining his half-brother’s company of mercenaries in the wilds of Scotland. A knight and a champion at the joust, he expected to inherit a holding—until the man he has known as his father revealed a terrible truth and disavowed him. Left with nothing, Amaury rides to Kilderrick, where he loses his heart to a beautiful noblewoman in the forest. A practical man, he knows he has no right to court the lady, but when she is abducted, Amaury follows, determined to fulfill his knightly duty by aiding a damsel in distress.

Elizabeth d’Acron has been a pawn and a prize, pursued for her father’s wealthy holding, and wants only to be desired for herself. Seized again, she vows she will surrender to no man—even the handsome knight who comes to her rescue. And truly, there could be no one more vexing than this confident yet inscrutable man, so concerned with duty that he could be wrought of stone—but Elizabeth soon learns that she can trust Amaury to defend her at any cost. She does not expect the seductive fire awakened by his touch, much less his conquest of her wary heart—but has she fallen in love with a man whose affections are already claimed?

Snared between duty and passion, Amaury finds himself beguiled by the lady who challenges his every expectation, but knows he has little to offer her. But when Elizabeth is threatened by a former suitor who will not be refused, Amaury risks his all in her defense, hoping it will be enough. But can he intervene in time? And will love alone convince Elizabeth to place her hand in his for all time?

Coming in February 15, 2022!
