My Books & Kindle Unlimited

As I’ve done several times in the past, I tried an experiment this spring and enrolled my medieval romances in KDP Select, which meant that Kindle Unlimited subscribers could read them free—and I’d get paid for page reads as well as sales. While there are authors who do very well in KU, I see a similar pattern each time: it works really well until suddenly it doesn’t. I just don’t have the knack of making KU work over the long term.

My books were enrolled at the beginning of April. Their term in Kindle Unlimited ends July 1. They’re not going to be renewed for another 90-day term in the program: next weekend, I’ll make them available at all portals again. I’ll let you know when that’s done.

Exclusive three book bonus for subscribers to Claire Delacroix's Knights & Rogues medieval romance newsletterI’ll also restore the newsletter sign-up bundle of three free series starters – including The Princess, The Beauty Bride and The Crusader’s Bride. I had to remove this because books enrolled in KDP Select have to be available exclusively at Amazon. On July 2, that won’t be the case anymore. I’ll include the download link in the July newsletter, in case you signed up when the bundle wasn’t available.

Three of my time travels have already come out of KU—The Moonstone, The Last Highlander and Once Upon a Kiss, as well as the bundle Timeless Loves—and I’m republishing them at all portals today.

Once Upon a Kiss, a fantasy romance by Claire DelacroixArmed with a pair of gardening shears, Baird Beauforte is determined to clear away the brambles that hinder the development of his resort, and he won’t let local superstition deter him. Dunhelm Castle is supposed to be the latest jewel in the Beauforte Resort chain, but the renovations can’t be finished if the workmen are frightened of a so-called curse. To dispel any lingering fears, Baird decides to vanquish the briars himself. What he never expects is to find a mysterious slumbering beauty…

Aurelia is like no one he has ever met before. Upon awakening, she demands to know his identity and why he is in her father’s castle! Bemused by he claim of being a king’s daughter, he is certain he has never met this “princess” before, although something about her rouses a haunting sense of familiarity. Soon, dreams plague this by-the-book businessman… dreams that feel more like memories. And Baird begins to wonder if he can claim his heart’s princess — now and forever — with a kiss.

The Moonstone, a time travel romance and romantic comedy by Claire Delacroix

North England, 1390: Falsely accused of witchcraft, ever-optimistic Viviane is sure the truth will set her free.

Befriended by some rather eccentric locals, she quickly finds the warmhearted island community happily compatible with her sunny disposition.

And soon this powerful man, devoted to upholding the law, finds himself caught between duty and a far more powerful emotion…

Love Potion #9 in Wide Distribution Again

Love Potion #9 is now available at all retail portals again, after a run in Kindle Unlimited this summer. Although this is one of the four books I wrote for Berkley imprints (Time Passages and Magical Love) it’s the one that isn’t really a time travel. It’s a reincarnation story and a romantic comedy: Lilith is a witch who has lived a long time, waiting for her true love to reappear. In fact, she hunted down the elixir for immortality just to be able to wait long enough. Impatient, she casts a little spell to hurry him along—and is convinced that her new neighbor is her lover true returned. Single father and reporter Mitch gets a greeting to the neighborhood he’ll never forget, and soon, he’s trying to get to the bottom of the real story. I love this book so much, and it will always hold a special place in my heart.

Love Potion #9, a fantasy romance by Claire DelacroixItaly, August 1420: A gypsy named Lilith sees her lover hanged for a crime he didn’t commit. On the gallows, he swears to return to her. Convinced that one day he’ll be reborn, she searched for a fabled elixir—rumored to grant immortality…

Toronto, August 1999: Waiting has taken its toll on Lilith, now a fortune-teller with a gift for matchmaking. So she concocts her strongest love potion ever. She is certain her magic has worked when the spitting image of her one true love moves in next door.

A very practical—and skeptical—single father, Mitch Davison is intrigued by Lilith’s passionate welcome, yet suspicious of her motives. After all, he’s never believed in magic—and hasn’t believed in love since his wife left him. But when Lilith doubts her own intuition, it’s Mitch who must convince her that the greatest gift of all is the talent to follow your own heart…

A Romantic Times Top Pick
