Guided Tour of Ravensmuir

Ravensmuir and Kinfairlie Tour by Claire DelacroixI’m setting up a guided tour of the books set in the fictional medieval realm of Ravensmuir, Kinfairlie and Inverfyre. Each week you’ll receive an email featuring the next book in the series. You’ll get a peek behind the scenes at its creation and I’ll talk a bit about the historical details included in the book, and the characters. There will be links for the free downloads associated with the book, as well as discounts for you to buy books in my online store.

The tour will launch at the end of September, but you can sign up today, right here. Let’s take an armchair tour of my version of medieval Scotland together!

 

The Runaway Bride Pub Date

I’ve changed the publication date for The Runaway Bride because I’m running behind this fall. You can blame those dragons for distracting me – the new editions of the Dragonfire Novels were a lot more time-consuming than I’d anticipated. I want to ensure I have all the details right in this book, and let my editor have enough time to do her magic, too. So, I’ve moved the pub date for Aoife and Ross’s story to November 27.

Coming in November!
The Runaway Bride, book #2 of the Brides of Inverfyre series of medieval Scottish romances by Claire DelacroixAoife MacArthur is a beauty and a prize, an heiress who wants to marry for love—but her father has arranged her marriage to Nigel Armstrong, the oldest son and heir of the Hawk of Inverfyre. One look confirms that Nigel will never possess her heart—although his cousin, Ross of Kinfairlie, is another matter. Aoife knows she cannot escape her fate, but yearns for one last adventure: she will flee Inverfyre and hope that Ross will be sent in pursuit. She tells herself that one kiss will be sufficient…

Ross Lammergeier is a mercenary with a blade for hire, for he has not the coin to claim a bride. When his cousin’s betrothed flees, he lends chase, for the Hawk of Inverfyre trained him. Ross suspects that Nigel’s betrothed plays a game, but Aoife’s ploy is dangerous—for the treacherous MacLaren clan, always seeking to undermine Inverfyre, take her captive. In the course of rescuing Aoife and ensuring her safety, Ross finds himself captivated by the fierce and beautiful maiden. When they both surrender to temptation, their futures are changed—not least by the surprise attack of the MacLaren clan. How much will Ross surrender to guarantee Aoife’s safety? And how much will Aoife give to protect the man who has captured her heart?

Coming November 27!

Those Bundles

Heartbreakers: Three Medieval Bad Boys, a digital bundle from Claire DelacroixThis is a post for the frugal shoppers among you. 🙂

My most recent boxed sets were bundled by trope. Heartbreakers: Three Medieval Bad Boys includes three books with bad boy heroes. Knights in Shining Armor includes three books with noble heroes. Highland Heroes includes three Scottish medieval romances. Kinfairlie Knights is the exception – it includes three first-in-series medieval Scottish romances.

I know, though, that most of you prefer to read in series. So, if you’ve bought these bundles, what titles do you need to buy to fill in the gaps? Here’s a cheat sheet for you, if you like boxed sets:

The Princess, #1 of The Princess, #1 of the Bride Quest series of medieval romances by Claire DelacroixThe Bride Quest
1. The Princess
2. The Damsel
3. The Heiress
4. The Countess
5. The Beauty – in Highland Heroes
6. The Temptress – in Knights in Shining Armor
(psst – you might want to look at the Bride Quest I Boxed Set…)

The Rogues of Ravensmuir:
1. The Rogue – in Kinfairlie Knights
2. The Scoundrel – in Heartbreakers: Three Medieval Bad Boys
3. The Warrior – in Highland Heroes

The Snow White Bride, #3 of the Jewels of Kinfairlie series of medieval Scottish romances by Claire DelacroixThe Jewels of Kinfairlie
1. The Beauty Bride – in Kinfairlie Knights (also free)
2. The Rose Red Bride – in Highland Heroes
3. The Snow White Bride – in Knights in Shining Armor
4. The Ballad of Rosamunde

The True Love Brides
1. The Renegade’s Heart – in Kinfairlie Knights
2. The Highlander’s Curse
3. The Frost Maiden’s Kiss – in Heartbreakers: Three Medieval Bad Boys
4. The Warrior’s Prize

The Crusader's Bride, #1 of the Champions of St. Euphemia series of medieval romances by Claire DelacroixThe Champions of St. Euphemia

2. The Crusader’s Heart – in Heartbreakers: Three Medieval Bad Boys
3. The Crusader’s Kiss – in Knights in Shining Armor
4. The Crusader’s Vow
5. The Crusader’s Handfast

The individual series often have series bundles, too. There isn’t a series bundle for the Champions of St. Euphemia, though, and there are no plans for one at this time. Now you know! Happy reading. 🙂
