I’ve been writing historical romances for a long time, so I have quite a few published series. This page provides an introduction to each series, and they’re listed roughly in the order they were written.
My first historical romances were published by Harlequin Historicals. The original editions are out of print and unavailable new, but I’ve been revising and republishing the books in new editions.
Visit the Sayerne page to learn about one series including some completely revised titles and some new ones.
My first time travel romance, The Last Highlander, was originally published by Berkley under the pseudonym Claire Cross.
Ultimately, I wrote four books for them that were either time travels or included magical elements – they were all romantic comedies, too.
They’re all available in new editions as Claire Delacroix books and live under the Time Travels menu.
There’s a boxed set available, as well.
The Bride Quest
My next medieval romance series includes a fairy tale element – the Bride Quest trilogy starts in Ireland with the king’s demand that Brianna marry one of the three sons of the mercenary who has conquered her father’s holding. She doesn’t want to marry any of them, so she sends them on a quest, vowing to marry the one who brings her a gift that makes her laugh. She doesn’t plan to laugh at all. To her surprise, Luc is the one son who refuses to follow her rules – he doesn’t even go on her quest and sparks fly while his brothers are gone. The Bride Quest was originally published by Dell and is available in new editions.
There’s a second Bride Quest trilogy set in Scotland, featuring a widow inspired by the original quest. (Eglantine is a friend of Burke, the hero of The Damsel.) She wants her daughters to be able to choose their husbands, so she flees an unsuitable suitor for her oldest daughter, leaving everything behind in the hope of a better future. She doesn’t expect much for herself, but Duncan has definite romantic ideas when he first meets the feisty countess who believes in her claim to his clan’s land. These books are also available in new editions, with the entire Bride Quest numbered as one series. You’ll find the books, the boxed sets and the family trees under The Bride Quest menu.
Under this menu, you’ll find the four series set in my fictional medieval Scottish world of Ravensmuir, Kinfairlie, and Inverfyre.
The first trilogy set in this world is the Rogues of Ravensmuir, which begins with The Rogue. This trilogy developed organically, so the books are more standalone than those in the subsequent series. This trilogy has more of a Gothic tone, too.
The next series is the Jewels of Kinfairlie, which is where many readers begin. This series features three of the eight siblings at Kinfairlie and begins with The Beauty Bride. That book is currently a free read. These six books were originally published by Warner but are now available in new editions.
The next series is The True Love Brides, which follows the next four siblings of those eight. This series has more paranormal elements, as closing the portal to Fae at Kinfairlie is one of the characters’ goals. It begins with The Renegade’s Heart, which was my first all-indie title.
The current series is The Brides of Inverfyre, beginning with The Mercenary’s Bride, which is a Christmas novella. The Runaway Bride is the story of Ross, the last of those eight siblings, and the series will continue with the stories of the Hawk’s other children. Kinfairlie Tales is a planned series of novellas set in the world of Ravensmuir.
You’ll find family trees under the Ravensmuir tab and boxed sets of the various series. Many of these books are also available in Audio editions. You can also sign up for a newsletter tour of Ravensmuir for a peek behind the scenes – each week, you’ll receive an email featuring the next book in the series with my notes about the research and inspiration.
The Champions of St. Euphemia
This series features a company of knights entrusted with a Templar treasure on their journey from Jerusalem to Paris. They soon realize that someone in their company will do anything to claim the treasure, and none of them are certain who to trust. There’s more romantic suspense in this series and more history as the company journeys west with their precious burden. There are five books in the series and the adventure culminates in Scotland.
You’ll find the entire series under the menu The Champions. The first two books are available in Audio and there is a boxed set of the series, too. I’m designing a tour for this series, and you can sign up for it right here.
The Brides of North Barrows
My Regency romance series includes two novellas at this point, although there are two more stories planned (and they might be longer). Something Wicked This Way Comes was part of a multi-author anthology featuring romances set at Halloween when characters gathered for the reading of a will at a country estate. My heroine is a governess, and I liked her students enough to want to write their stories: A Duke By Any Other Name is the story of the oldest girl, Daphne, who gets her duke, against the odds. It also links back to the Bride Quest, as the hero’s holding is the same property held by Angus in The Beauty.
You’ll find my Regency romances under the menu North Barrows.
Under the Short Works menu, you’ll find short stories that aren’t connected to my various series. Many of these have been collected into a separate volume called Beguiled, which is available in print and digital editions. Learn more about Beguiled.
In addition to digital boxed sets of completed series, I also have a number of boxed sets compiled by theme or trope. Some of these are available only for a limited time. They’re always a good deal!
Find them under the menu Boxed Sets.
Some of my books are available in foreign editions, and I expect there to be more of them in future. Under the Translations menu, you’ll find tabs for each language in which I have foreign editions. There’s a newsletter for each language, as well. Right now, there’s a menu for Italian, but there will be ones for Portuguese (Brazil) and German, too.
