The Princess, #1 of The Princess, #1 of the Bride Quest series of medieval romances by Claire Delacroix

Princess Brianna of Tullymullagh is determined to marry only for love—until her father’s holding is conquered and the king decrees that she must wed one of the victor’s sons. Thinking she can outwit this condition, Brianna issues a challenge: the son who brings her a gift that makes her laugh will win her hand.

Thus begins the Bride Quest of the three brothers Fitzgavin.

Burke and Rowan, knights both, ride out on Brianna’s quest, each intent upon triumph. Only Luc refuses to participate, for he knows that a princess had no place in the life of a battle-weary warrior like himself. Brianna is not inclined to accept his refusal—she tempts him and awakens his slumbering senses with her alluring beauty and her sweet kisses. Luc has sworn to lay down his sword forever—until he is the sole one who can defend the fair maiden who has claimed his shielded heart.

The Hunter & the Heiress, book two of the Blood Brothers series of medieval Scottish romances by Claire Delacroix

Nothing could be further from Amaury de Vries’ expectations than joining his half-brother’s company of mercenaries in the wilds of Scotland. A knight and a champion at the joust, he expected to inherit a holding—until the man he has known as his father revealed a terrible truth and disavowed him. Left with nothing, Amaury rides to Kilderrick, where he loses his heart to a beautiful noblewoman in the forest. A practical man, he knows he has no right to court the lady, but when she is abducted, Amaury follows, determined to fulfill his knightly duty by aiding a damsel in distress.

Elizabeth d’Acron has been a pawn and a prize, pursued for her father’s wealthy holding, and wants only to be desired for herself. Seized again, she vows she will surrender to no man—even the handsome knight who comes to her rescue. And truly, there could be no one more vexing than this confident yet inscrutable man, so concerned with duty that he could be wrought of stone—but Elizabeth soon learns that she can trust Amaury to defend her at any cost. She does not expect the seductive fire awakened by his touch, much less his conquest of her wary heart—but has she fallen in love with a man whose affections are already claimed?

Snared between duty and passion, Amaury finds himself beguiled by the lady who challenges his every expectation, but knows he has little to offer her. But when Elizabeth is threatened by a former suitor who will not be refused, Amaury risks his all in her defense, hoping it will be enough. But can he intervene in time? And will love alone convince Elizabeth to place her hand in his for all time?

The Rose Red Bride, book two of the Jewels of Kinfairlie series of medieval romances by Claire Delacroix, German edition

Höhergeschätzt als Gold sind die Juwelen von Kinfairlie und nur die Würdigsten dürfen um ihre Liebe kämpfen … Der Laird von Kinfairlie hat unverheiratete Schwestern – jede für sich ein Kleinod. Und er hat keine andere Wahl, als sie in aller Eile zu verheiraten.

Wie eine Heldin in einer alten Erzählung wartet Vivienne im höchsten Turmzimmer von Kinfairlie auf den Liebhaber, den ihr das Los bestimmt hat. Er kommt in der Dunkelheit zu ihr, mit Umhang und Kapuze, sodass sie sein Gesicht nicht sehen kann. Er liebt sie süß und hingebungsvoll … und Vivienne weiß, sie ist ihrem Schicksal begegnet.

Doch im Morgenlicht zerbricht ihr Traum. Erik Sinclair von Blackleith ist kein romantischer Held, sondern ein enterbter Krieger, der ihre Entführung geplant hat, um sein Erbe zurückzugewinnen. Empört über Eriks Behauptung, sie nur für die Zeugung eines Sohnes zu benötigen, und doch verführt von der Leidenschaft, die er in ihr erweckt, wird Vivienne klar, dass ihr schweigsamer Ehegatte mehr Vorzüge hat, als er selbst zugeben würde. Erik betrachtet ihr wachsendes Vertrauen in seine Ehre und ihren Wunsch, sein gestohlenes Geburtsrecht zurückzuerlangen, mit Skepsis …

Er ahnt nicht, dass seine Braut, dieses seltene Juwel, beabsichtigt, auch sein verschlossenes Herz zu gewinnen.


Die rosenrote Braut ist auch als Hörbuch in englischer Sprache erhältlich.

First Knights is 99¢

From November 20 – 27, my four-book boxed set, First Knights, is discounted from $9.99 to just 99 cents! Don’t miss this chance to try four series starters and medieval romances.


FYI, I learned something this past weekend, btw, which will affect this deal if you live outside of the US. I used a feature called a Kindle Countdown Deal to change the price automatically on this book on schedule. I didn’t realize that a KCD only works on Amazon.com and only displays to shoppers who live in the US. So, I will discount this book again but internationally in December, to coincide with the next Knights & Rogues newsletter. That way, everyone can take advantage of the special. I apologize for my mistake. I had no idea!


First Knights, a digital bundle of four medieval romance series starters by Claire Delacroix

First Knights includes four medieval romance series starters from the Queen of Medieval Romance, Claire Delacroix. Be swept away to a realm of pageantry and chivalry, where each knight competes for his lady’s favor, each lady knows her heart’s desire—and love conquers all. Included in this digital bundle are four first-in-series medieval romances: One Knight Enchanted, The Princess, The Beauty Bride and The Crusader’s Bride.

In One Knight Enchanted—book #1 of the Rogues & Angels series—Annelise seeks refuge at a keep when she is separated from her party and pursued by hungry wolves. The price of admission is marriage to its mysterious lord, and she agrees—only to find herself in a luxurious palace, and seduced by her secretive spouse. Her new husband believes he is doomed, but Annelise knows that love can conquer all. Can she save her husband from the curse placed upon him, or will breaking her promise to him cost any chance to win his wary heart?

In The Princess—book #1 of the Bride Quest series—Brianna is obliged to choose one of three brothers as her husband. Instead, she challenges them, vowing to wed the one who brings her a gift that makes her laugh. She has no intention of laughing at all, but one brother, Luc, declines to follow her whim. Sparks fly between the willful princess and the disillusioned knight after his brothers depart, and from this battle of wills, an unexpected love dawns. When the other knights return, will Luc take up his sword again to defend the maiden who has claimed his heart, or will Brianna be compelled to wed another?
