The Countess is Free!

Today, through September 18, my medieval romance The Countess is free at all portals! The Countess is book 4 of the Bride Quest series, but the Bride Quest is actually two linked trilogies: you should read each trilogy in order, but you can start with book 1 or book 4.

The Countess, #4 of the Bride Quest series of medieval romances by Claire Delacroix

Driven from her late husband’s estate, Countess Eglantine de Crevy fled to wildest Scotland to claim a castle, only to find a ruin—and a clan chieftain standing guard. Kinbeath was hers, she declared, vowing to rebuild the manor and launch a bride quest so her daughters could marry for love. But Duncan MacLaren had devised a bride quest of his own, swearing to win the land—and the fiery countess—in a war of sweet seduction…

Eglantine declared she would never be captured by this barbarian. Yet Duncan awakened passions she had never known before. She promised to fight him with every weapon at her command even as he vowed to woo her for a year and a day—and make her his pagan bride.

Each thought Kinbeath the prize the most desired, a prize to be won at any price. Until passion turned to love, and the chieftain found himself fighting for the heart and hand of the woman he was born to possess.

“Master storyteller Claire Delacroix has done it again with this marvelous medieval romance. The setting is realistic, and her beautifully written prose is sexy, funny, charming and totally satisfying. The Countess is a keeper!”

An Update on the Reading Guide

There’s a small complication with this year’s guide.

Previously, Amazon has pushed out the new edition to customers who have downloaded previous editions of the guide, which updates the version for those customers. This year, they declined to do so. This might be because more people have highlighted parts of the guide – pushing out a new edition removes all highlighting and notes for customers.

If you have the blue and pink 2020 edition, you won’t get an automatic update at Amazon and you won’t be able to download the 2022 edition since Amazon will say you already have it. So, I’m unpublishing the book at Amazon and publishing the pink one as a new book. That will change the Amazon link as the guide will have a new ASIN. Stay tuned for an update!

The Reading Guide is Updated!

Each year, I update my free reading guide and the latest edition is available now. I missed this job last year, so this year’s update is a big one. Next, I have to update the downloadable book list.

Since 2016, I’ve been publishing a reader guide as a free download. This little volume is thick with links. There are links to product pages as well as links to other content on my site that you might have missed—an out-take scene, family trees to download, audio samples, and swag. There are also suggestions for reading order, beyond the series order.

I change the colour each year so you know which version you have. The latest edition is pink.

Use the BookFunnel link if the guide isn’t free at Amazon in your territory.
