New Cover for The Last Highlander

In the past year or so, I’ve noticed that romantic comedies tend to have cartoon covers. I’d been thinking of updating the look of my time travel romances, so this time, we went with cartoon covers. The first one to be completed is The Last Highlander. I think this cover is so cute!

The Last Highlander, a time travel romance by Claire Delacroix writing as Claire Cross, 2022 edition

The new edition, with this cover, is processing at the portals in both ebook and print. If you already own the ebook, this may be presented to you as a new edition to download. I’m not sure what Amazon will do as they don’t like to push out updates. If you want a print edition and prefer the 2017 cover, you can buy one directly from me.


The Last Highlander, a time travel romance by Claire Delacroix writing as Claire Cross, 2022 edition

Scotland, 1314—After the Scots reclaim Edinburgh Castle, Alasdair MacAuley only wants to celebrate. But the revels are interrupted by an old crone who claims the castle’s true owner is the legendary witch Morgaine le Fee. Dared by his fellow warriors to go meet the witch, Alasdair heads down a flight of stairs—and tumbles right into another century…

Scotland, 1998—American Morgan Lafayette is in Scotland to enjoy the history, not to ogle men in kilts. So when she stumbles upon a brawny man in a kilt, she is less than enthralled. She is certain he’s drunk for he claims Morgan is a powerful sorceress who has brought him to her magical kingdom! Despite her reluctance, she is intensely drawn to this handsome Highlander and the mystery surrounding him, a mystery that has the power to alter history—and her heart—forever…


“Long after the last word, you will bask in the afterglow of this fascinating story.”

Buy The Last Highlander ebook:


At times humorous, at times heartwrenching, this unique time travel deftly combines historical facts with a shimmering romance that defies time and place…The resolution is simply wonderful, and I’m not going to give it away. You will just have to read it yourself to savor the feast Ms. [Delacroix] provides.

More Books Enrolled in Kindle Unlimited

I’ve enrolled more books in Kindle Unlimited, so if you’re a KU subscriber, here’s your chance to binge-read!

These series were enrolled in KU at the beginning of the month:

The Bride Quest (including two boxed sets)

The Champions of St. Euphemia (including the boxed set)

The Rogues of Ravensmuir (including the boxed set)

As well as One Knight Enchanted, One Knight’s Return, Pearl Beyond Price and Unicorn Bride.

This week, I’ve added:

The Beauty Bride, #1 of the Jewels of Kinfairlie series of medieval Scottish romances by Claire Delacroix
The Jewels of Kinfairlie
The Renegade's Heart, #1 of the True Love Brides series of medieval Scottish romances by Claire Delacroix
The True Love Brides
The Mercenary's Bride, #1 of the Brides of Inverfyre series of medieval Scottish romances
The Brides of Inverfyre
The Last Highlander, a Scottish time travel romance and romantic comedy by Claire Delacroix

I also enrolled my Time Travel Romances.

Because everything is enrolled now, I could add the Boxed Sets.


As mentioned previously, Blood Brothers will not be enrolled in KU before the series is completed (and maybe not then.)

The Brides of North Barrows will not be enrolled in KU either, because those stories are included in anthologies that are in wide distribution.

Beguiled, a collection of short stories and romances by Deborah Cooke and Claire Delacroix

The only outlier at this point is Beguiled, my collection of short stories. Because The Ballad of Rosamunde is enrolled in Kindle Unlimited, Beguiled can’t be available at other retailers—but because the other stories are in wide distribution, Beguiled can’t be enrolled in KU. So, the ebook of Beguiled is available only at Amazon.
