The Champions of St. Euphemia Boxed Set

The Champions of St. Euphemia Boxed Set including the entire series of medieval romances by Claire DelacroixA company of Templar knights, chosen by the Grand Master of the Temple in Jerusalem to deliver a sealed trunk to the Temple in Paris. A group of pilgrims seeking the protection of the Templars to return home as the Muslims prepare to besiege the city. A mysterious treasure that someone will even kill to possess…

The Champions of St. Euphemia Boxed Set includes all five medieval romances in this thrilling series by Claire Delacroix. You’ll join the quest to deliver the treasure from Jerusalem to Paris in The Crusader’s Bride. Gaston makes a marriage of convenience with Ysmaine, knowing he needs a son, but soon realizes how little he knows about his new wife. Does he dare to trust her? Can Ysmaine win the heart of her new husband?

Follow Wulfe in The Crusader’s Heart, after he encounters the courtesan Christina who refuses to be left behind in Venice. Maybe this alluring woman is exactly what the orphaned knight needs to reawaken his heart and convince him to solve the riddles of his past—can he build a future with Christina?

Ride north to England with Bartholomew in The Crusader’s Kiss, in his own quest to reclaim his stolen legacy and avenge his parents: little does he expect to find a woman leading a band of thieves in the forest, much less to pretend she is his wife to undermine the villain.

Continue to Scotland with Fergus in The Crusader’s Vow as he returns home after his military service only to find his betrothed has wed another man. A marriage of convenience with his friend and the disguised Saracen Leila seems a fitting compromise, but Leila will not be satisfied until she and Fergus are more than friends and even lovers: she wants to claim his heart for her own.

The treasure finds its final sanctuary in Radegunde and Duncan’s tale, The Crusader’s Handfast, a May-December romance between Ysmaine’s maid and Fergus’ man-at-arms, a warrior who believes love has left him behind. Radegunde holds the secrets of her lady, but also proves to have the power to steal Duncan’s heart.

The Champions of St. Euphemia Boxed Set includes the complete series of five medieval romances in Claire Delacroix’s sweeping historical series.

Coming December 11, 2018.

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!

Me and KU

One Knight Enchanted, #1 of the Rogues & Angels series of medieval romances by Claire DelacroixAs you might recall, I decided to enroll a lot of my books in Kindle Unlimited last August as an experiment. It’s gone reasonably well, but the time has come for this experiment to end. One of the things that feeds success in KU is the regular addition of new content into the program. I’m not publishing a new title every month, which is what seems to work best, and my new titles are being released in wide distribution when they are published instead of into KU. Given this, it turns out the program isn’t an ideal fit for me. I’m glad I tried it and I hope I found some new readers, but it’s time to go back to wide distribution. (Do I hear a cheer from the Nook readers? I think I do! LOL!)

The Beauty Bride, #1 of the Jewels of Kinfairlie series of medieval Scottish romances by Claire DelacroixKU requires a 90 day enrollment period, so it will take a few months for everything to come out of the program and be made available again elsewhere. I’ll update the interiors and upload the books again at each portal. It’ll be under the same ISBN, so if you bought any book before, you’ll be able to download the updated version free. I’ll post when each series is updated at the other portals and the links are here on the site. Here’s a rough schedule, although in each series I have one book that will be early or late.

One Knight Enchanted – goes wide in April

The Jewels of Kinfairlie – goes wide in early May

The True Love Brides – goes wide in late May

The Crusader's Bride, #1 of the Champions of St. Euphemia series of medieval romances by Claire DelacroixThe Champions of St. Euphemia – goes wide in late May
(The Crusader’s Bride is already out of KU and will go wide this week.)

The Rogues of Ravensmuir – goes wide in June

The Bride Quest II – goes wide in late June

The Bride Quest I – goes wide in July
