The Crusader’s Bride in German

I have another translation available this week – The Crusader’s Bride is now available in German.


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

Gaston kämpfte für Pflicht und Ehre … bis Ysmaine ihn dazu verführte, um ihre Liebe zu kämpfen …

Als der Tempelritter Gaston unerwartet den Besitz seiner Familie erbt, weiß er, dass er eine Frau und einen Erben braucht. Eine Vernunftehe mit einer hilfsbedürftigen Witwe erscheint als eine praktische Lösung. Betraut mit dem Überbringen einer Fracht für die Templer, verlässt das frisch vermählte Paar Jerusalem. Das Leben, wie Gaston es seit seiner Jugend gekannt hat, ist vorüber, und er stellt fest, dass nur noch wenig nach Plan verläuft – besonders, was die Beziehung zu seiner geheimnisvollen neuen Frau angeht, deren Gegenwart ein unerwartetes Feuer in ihm schürt …

Zweifach verwitwet, zweifelt Ysmaine daran, dass sie je wieder eine Ehe eingehen wird, schon gar keine, die ihr zum Vorteil gereicht – bis der schroffe Streiter, der sich als ihr Retter entpuppt, ihr Herz erobert. Sie ist entschlossen, Gaston zu beweisen, dass eine Ehe für sie beide mehr bereithält als einen Erben, aber zuerst muss sie das Vertrauen des Mannes gewinnen, den sie so impulsiv geheiratet hat …

Keiner von beiden weiß, dass Gaston ein kostbarer Schatz des Templerordens anvertraut wurde – und dass jemand in ihrer Reisegruppe diese Beute um jeden Preis für sich haben will. Kann Gaston, umgeben von Fremden, es wagen, seiner neuen Frau zu vertrauen? Kann Ysmaine ihn davon überzeugen, ihr anzuvertrauen, was er weiß? Können sie das Rätsel gemeinsam lösen, bevor der Schurke seine Pläne in die Tat umsetzt und alles verloren ist?


Des Kreuzfahrers Braut ist auch als Hörbuch in englischer Sprache erhältlich.

Time Travels in Kindle Unlimited

My three time travel romances – Once Upon a Kiss, The Last Highlander and The Moonstone, are now available to read in Kindle Unlimited, as is the boxed set, Timeless Loves. Their 90 day term ends on May 11 and I’ll decide in May whether to enroll them for another 90 days. If you’re a KU subscriber, here’s your chance to read these three popular romances!


Timeless Loves, a time travel boxed set by Claire Delacroix

Timeless Loves is a digital bundle including three full-length time travel romances: The Last Highlander, The Moonstone, and Once Upon a Kiss.

Surrender to three loves that transcend time!

In The Last Highlander, an illustrator’s research trip to Scotland takes a turn for romance when a handsome rogue of a 13th century Highlander insists that only she can send him home again and vows to whatever is necessary to win her favor. Soon Morgan finds herself torn between helping Alasdair and wanting to keep him forever.

Timeless Loves, a time travel romance boxed set by Claire Delacroix

In Once Upon a Kiss, a practical businessman discovers a sleeping beauty on his newly acquired Scottish property: not only does Aurelia complicate the renovation of Baird’s newest boutique hotel, but she thaws his heart and threatens to claim it forever.

In The Moonstone, a medieval knight allows a pretty condemned witch to make one last wish, never imagining that her sorcery will work. She drops her magical charm, and as a man of honor, he can only pursue her and ensure justice, wherever she has fled. But when Niall finds Vivian in a world filled with possibilities and passion, will he be able to resist the temptation to stay?

Three magical stories of love conquering the barrier of time!


Timeless Loves is now enrolled in Kindle Unlimited and the ebook is available exclusively at Amazon.

Medieval Romances in Wide Distribution Again

The Beauty Bride, #1 of the Jewels of Kinfairlie series of medieval Scottish romances by Claire DelacroixI’ve spent the weekend republishing my medieval romances at all portals, and rebuilding the links here on the website. The series data is still populating at some portals, but the books are there.

I did my usual metadata check – this is a good opportunity to confirm BISAC categories, keywords, and add any missing ones, plus update the formatting on the book description if necessary. I also double-checked the pricing in all territories to make it more consistent across all portals. It’s kind of interesting because the price of each book converts to other currencies when you first publish it. Over time, there ends up being a lot of variation, since currencies change value against each other. Each portal lets you over-ride the conversion and manually set prices in a certain number of territories (13 at Amazon, 16 at Kobo, 51 at Apple, many at GooglePlay) so I updated that this time. Each portal has different parameters and rules about pricing, though, so it ends up being a bit of a jigsaw puzzle. You should find that my full-length romances are $4.99US, $6.49CA, $6.49AU, £3.49 and EU4.49 at all portals.

The Crusader's Bride, book one of the Champions of St. Euphemia series of medieval romances by Claire DelacroixIt turned out to be a less-than-ideal time to be doing this, since it was a holiday weekend both here and in the US. Servers were slow and there was no tech support when issues cropped up, but it’s DONE. 🙂

I also made some pricing changes at Ingrams, which should make it easier for your local bookstore to stock or order trade paperback copies of my books.

These are the series that are wide again:
The Rogues of Ravensmuir

The Jewels of Kinfairlie

The True Love Brides

The Brides of Inverfyre

The Bride Quest

The Champions of St. Euphemia

Unicorn Bride and Pearl Beyond Price

Rogues & Angels

I also have a sale this week, and will tell you about that free series starter tomorrow.
