The True Love Brides Boxed Set is Back

The True Love Brides Boxed Set, a digital bundle including all four medieval Scottish romances in the True Love Brides series by Claire Delacroix

My True Love Brides series boxed set is available again! This bundle includes all four medieval romances in the True Love Brides series.

Four magical medieval romances set in Scotland from the “Queen of Medieval Romance”, in which true love wins the day against the immortal Fae.

In The Renegade’s Heart, Isabella is captivated by the knight who arrives at Kinfairlie to challenge her brother, little realizing that Murdoch has been chosen by the Fae queen to be her prize. Murdoch knows himself to be doomed so takes on the quest of avenging his family before he succumbs to the Fae charm, never realizing that intrepid Isabella holds the key to his release- and his barricaded heart.

In The Highlander’s Curse, Garrett is captivated by shy Annelise, the sole woman whose touch eases the torment of his Fae curse. Awakened by his touch, Annelise resolves to save the highlander she loves from enemies who would destroy him for their own gain – no matter what the price.

In The Frost Maiden’s Kiss, Malcolm returns home from his years abroad, wanting only to rebuild his family holding of Ravensmuir. Tormented by his choices, he sees little value in his life and trades it away, only to meet a pregnant serving woman who gives new purpose to his days and nights. Can Catriona save this wounded warrior from being the Fae’s mortal tithe to Hell – or will she lose the man who has claimed her heart?

In The Warrior’s Prize, a bold maiden challenges a mercenary to change his life for the better, but when he takes her dare, Rafael both wins her love and puts himself in dire peril. Elizabeth fears her valiant warrior to be dead and surrenders herself to Fae captivity rather than live without him. Can Rafael save his beloved and seal the portal to the realm of the Fae forever?

This digital bundle includes all four full-length medieval Scottish romances with paranormal elements in the True Love Brides Series. In this boxed set are The Renegade’s Heart, The Highlander’s Curse, The Frost Maiden’s Kiss, and The Warrior’s Prize.

The Crusader's Bride, book one of the Champions of St. Euphemia series of medieval romances by Claire Delacroix

Gaston battled for duty and honor—until Ysmaine tempted him to fight for her love…

When the Templar knight Gaston unexpectedly inherits his family estate, he knows he needs a wife and heir. A marriage of convenience to a widow in need of assistance is a practical solution and the newly-wed pair leave Jerusalem, entrusted with the delivery of a package for the Templars. Away from the life he has known for years, Gaston quickly realizes that little is following his plan—especially his mysterious wife, whose presence awakens an unexpected fire…

Twice widowed, Ysmaine doubts she will ever wed again, let alone have a marriage of merit—until she is charmed by the gruff knight intent upon defending her. Ysmaine weds again, not only by her own choice but to a warrior whose honor she admires. She is determined to show Gaston that marriage has more to offer them both than an heir, but first she must win the trust of the wary man she has impulsively wed…

Neither realize that Gaston has been entrusted with the treasure of the Templars—much less that someone in their small party is intent upon claiming the prize at any cost. In a company of strangers with secrets, can Gaston dare to trust his new bride? Can Ysmaine convince Gaston to confide what he knows? Can they solve the riddle together before the villain’s plan comes to fruition and all is lost?


The Crusader’s Bride is also available in trade paperback and audio.
