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

“Claire Delacroix is the queen of medieval romance!”—Rendezvous

Newsletter Giveaway

The Rogues of Ravensmuir hard cover Collector's edition, including all three medieval Scottish romances in the Rogues of Ravensmuir series by Claire DelacroixIn my most recent newsletter, I asked if you preferred linked titles or standalone romances. I had a lot of answers, and am really not surprised that most of you prefer linked stories. It makes sense that you get more invested in the characters and their world when there are more books set in that world. I was intrigued that so many of you dislike serialized stories, but then, that’s not such a thing in historical romance.

The winner of the signed copy of The Rogues of Ravensmuir Collectors’ Edition in hardcover was Billie.

Congratulations to Billie, and thanks to everyone who entered!

One Knight’s Return Today!

One Knight's Return, #2 of the Rogues & Angels series of medieval romances by Claire DelacroixQuinn de Sayerne vowed never to return home while his wicked father drew breath. Twenty years after his departure, the knight and crusader is summoned to claim his family holding after his father’s death. But the overlord decrees that Quinn must wed Melissande, the beautiful but frosty heiress of neighboring Annossy. Quinn resolves to win the heart of his lady wife, no matter what the cost, and thence the seal of Sayerne.

Melissande cannot believe that her liege lord has ignored her betrothal and wed her to a mercenary. Worse, he has granted her beloved Annossy to her new husband against her every protest. Though Melissande finds herself the chattel of this rough knight, she is determined to fight Quinn on every front—for the sake of her betrothal, Annossy, and her own pride.

But Annossy itself is in danger with brigands raiding its borders. Quinn is charged to oust the villains, but soon fears his lady wife is in peril—or is she allied with the brigands? Can this pair come to trust each other in time to work together for the sake of the future, or will a villain’s evil scheme cost them both everything they hold dear?

An earlier version of this story was published as My Lady’s Champion. What’s different? Ha. Pretty much everything – except Quinn, who I still adore. 🙂 The book has been completely revised, and there are new scenes linking the company of Rogues & Angels to the story. Tulley has a niece now, too.

Quinn and One Knight’s Return

One Knight's Return, #2 of the Rogues & Angels series of medieval romances by Claire DelacroixNext week, I’ll be publishing a new medieval romance, called One Knight’s Return. It’s a revision of a story that was published under the title My Lady’s Champion by Harlequin Historicals in 1996. I know that some of you have been reading my books since those days, and suspect others are wondering why I changed the title.

Well, the book is quite different. The hero is still Quinn de Sayerne and the heroine is still Melissande d’Annossy. They still have an arranged marriage and are compelled to wed against their respective wills in order to keep (or obtain) their family holding. Sparks still fly between this pair. The story is still set in the fictional realm of Tulley, which is loosely based on the Valais canton in modern Switzerland, which is around the city of Sion. Berthe (Melissande’s maid) and Bayard (Quinn’s companion knight) are still interested in each other. 🙂

My Lady's Champion, a medieval romance by Claire DelacroixThere are many differences, even so. First off, the book is now part of the Rogues & Angels series, featuring eight knights who served together in Palestine. Both Quinn and Bayard were in that company, which agreed to gather again at Sayerne. Those other knights make appearances in this book now – plus Bayard now has a gift from the tavern keeper in the Holy Land, which influences his story. The second half of the book is new and I like the development of Quinn and Melissande’s relationship better. Lord de Tulley has a niece now, Heloise von Idelstein, who has come to live with her uncle after the demise of her parents. There are quite a few differences, so if you read My Lady’s Champion, you’ll still find a lot that’s new—as well as some parts that are familiar. I still love Quinn so he didn’t change very much. 🙂

If you intend to continue reading the series, you’ll want to meet Niall and Heloise, too, and witness their first meeting. They’ll star in the next book in the series, One Knight’s Desire. I’m already wondering how that charming rogue Niall MacGillivray will convince the stern Lord de Tulley to consider him a suitable spouse for Heloise—and what Heloise might do to encourage Niall.

One Knight’s Return will be available at GooglePlay on the publication day. The print editions might be available a little earlier, depending on the processing time at the various portals.
