Audiobook Sale at Chirp

Starting this week, my audiobook The Snow White Bride is on sale at Chirp! It’s discounted from $14.99 to $1.99US through November 23. This is a holiday medieval romance, so the sale is perfectly timed IMO. I left the other links in case you want to comparison-shop. 🙂

The Snow White Bride, #3 of the Jewels of Kinfairlie series of medieval Scottish romances by Claire Delacroix is also available in audio

The Laird of Kinfairlie has helped his sisters, each a gem in her own right, to find husbands. Now the laird himself seeks to wed, and pins his hopes on The Snow White Bride.

Lady Eleanor knows better than to dream of romance and love. Married twice to secure her father’s alliances, she has learned that she is desirable only for her fortune. When the Laird of Kinfairlie’s sisters ask her to wed their brother, Alexander, Eleanor agrees, expecting only to save herself from danger.

But Alexander is like no man she’s known before, a man more interested in courting her smile than her obedience, a man who values her counsel as much as her newly awakened passion…and a man unaware that Eleanor is the key to a fortune that could ensure the future of everything he holds dear.

Now, ruthless enemies will stop at nothing to secure Eleanor’s capture. Will she dare to trust her new husband before it’s too late for her, for Alexander, and for Kinfairlie?

The Dragon & the Damsel Today!

Today’s the day for Rafael and Ceara’s story!

The Dragon & the Damsel

The Dragon and the Damsel, book three of the Blood Brothers trilogy of medieval Scottish romances by Claire Delacroix

A mercenary convinced that each man must see to his own survival first, Rafael has learned to savor the moment and its pleasures. He is interested solely in conquest and coin, not any promise of the future—until an alluring maiden challenges him, defying him to stake a claim. Rafael cannot resist Ceara with her flame-red hair and keen wits, but their cat-and-mouse game takes a dangerous turn when Ceara is stolen by her kin. Rafael cannot stand aside when the damsel’s survival is at risk—though if she has stolen his shielded heart, she must never know of his weakness…

Ceara fled an arranged marriage, determined to wed for love or not at all. A horsewoman and huntress herself, she has encountered no man worthy of her affection—until she matches wits with Rafael, with his flashing eyes and seductive touch. She knows the handsome warrior seeks only one prize from her, but hopes to steal his heart. When she is captured and compelled to return to her betrothed, she is thrilled that Rafael lends chase. When he claims her as his own bride, Ceara dares to hope for more than a marriage of convenience.

But Rafael appears to be interested solely in conquest and passion, and their match becomes a battle of wills. Will Ceara be cast aside when her newfound spouse is offered the prize he desires above all else? Warrior and damsel, can these two wounded souls learn to surrender the truth of their hearts—before their union is shattered forever?

The Runaway Bride, book two of the Brides of Inverfyre series of medieval Scottish romances by Claire Delacroix, Spanish edition

La novia fugitiva
Aoife MacNeill es una belleza y un premio, quien solía ser una heredera y que quiere casarse por amor, pero su padre ha arreglado su matrimonio con Nigel Armstrong, el hijo mayor y heredero del Halcón de Inverfyre.  Una mirada confirma que Nigel nunca poseerá su corazón, aunque su primo, Ross de Kinfairlie, es otro asunto.  Aoife sabe que no puede escapar de su destino, pero anhela una última aventura: ella huirá de Inverfyre y esperará que Ross sea enviado en su persecución.  Se dice a sí misma que un beso será suficiente…

 Ross de Kinfairlie es un mercenario a sueldo;  un caballero sin el dinero para reclamar una novia.  Cuando la prometida de su primo huye, él la persigue, porque el Halcón de Inverfyre fue quien lo entrenó.  Ross sospecha que Aiofe planea algo, pero su estratagema es peligrosa: el traicionero clan MacLaren, que siempre busca socavar Inverfyre, la toma cautiva.  En el curso de rescatar a Aoife y garantizar su seguridad, Ross se encuentra cautivado por la feroz y hermosa doncella.  ¿Cuánto entregará Ross para garantizar la seguridad de Aoife?  ¿Y cuánto ofrecerá Aoife para proteger al hombre que ha robado su corazón?

My Kindle Unlimited Plan

The Wolf & the Witch, book one of the Blood Brothers trilogy of medieval Scottish romances by Claire Delacroix

As many of you know, my medieval romances have come out of KDP Select and are now available at all portals again. The two exceptions are The Wolf & the Witch and The Hunter & the Heiress. Both of these books finish their current terms in KU in November, and will be republished at all portals then.

This means that The Dragon & the Damsel won’t be going into KDP Select in the near future, nor will The Scot & the Sorceress immediately after publication. I may enroll the entire Blood Brothers series in KDP Select at some future point in time, but not right now. After crunching the numbers, it’s clear that having my books available at all portals is a more successful strategy for me. I actually expected the opposite to be true, but the only way to find out for sure was to give it a try.

Having the books in wide distribution means that you can anticipate a sale on The Wolf & the Witch, probably in the new year, to welcome new readers to the series while book #4 is on pre-order. It also means that I’m going to try something new in February and that the publication date for S&S has moved to May. Stay tuned for details.

I also moved out the Masquerade of the Marchioness to December to give me a chance to catch my breath. 🙂

Once all my books are published at all the portals again – with updated interiors and shiny new links here on the website – I’ll be able to focus on writing more new books. I’m really looking forward to that. It’s been a busy year for updates.

The Spanish editions of The Champions of St. Euphemia

The Spanish editions of four of the Champions of St. Euphemia medieval romances have finished their term in KDP Select and are now available at all portals again. The Spanish edition of The Crusader’s Bride (La novia del caballero de las Cruzadas) was never enrolled in KDP Select.
