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?
Amaury finds himself beguiled by the lady who challenges his every expectation, but knows he has little to offer her. Snared between duty and passion, Amaury is suspicious when a former suitor arrives to court Elizabeth anew and they disagree. But when Elizabeth is threatened, Amaury chooses to risk his life in her defense, hoping his all will be enough. But will he reach Elizabeth and the villainous suitor in time? And can his love alone convince Elizabeth to place her hand in his for all time?
There also is a large print hardcover edition coming. This one is also processing today and should be available by early next week.
Here’s the cover for the hardcover large print edition. I’ll share buy links when it’s available.
Mr. Math is proof-listening the audiobook of Amaury and Elizabeth’s book, and is really enjoying Tim Campbell’s narration. I expect he’ll be done tomorrow, then there will be a few corrections made, then the audiobook will be reviewed for publication at ACX. It’s hard to anticipate how long that will take (it partly depends on the length of the queue) but I hope it will be available in early March.
If you’re looking for The Hunter & the Heiress in ebook, it’s been removed from sale at most portals so it can be enrolled in KDP Select. It has to be available exclusively at Amazon for that, so I’m watching the few hold-out portals and waiting for them to take down their listings. Ideally, that should happen today or tomorrow, and I hope to have The Hunter & the Heiress enrolled in KDP Select on the weekend.
The Blood Brothers series of medieval romances is being narrated by Tim Campbell. The audiobooks will be released as close to the publication date of the ebooks as possible. The Wolf & the Witch is available in audio now!
The Wolf & the Witch
Five Stars! Highly recommended as an excellent series starter of a place to start your love affair with Claire Delacroix books in general!”
Becca – Goodreads reviewer
Five Stars! Delacroix is a masterful storyteller who weaves together a fascinating tale of betrayal, vengeance, wit, fate and love!
The Wolf & the Witch audiobook is in production as we speak. It’s being narrated by the fabulous Tim Campbell and I’m hoping it will be available in early June. (It’s hard to predict how long it will take Audible to process the files.) In the meantime, you can listen to a sample on Soundcloud, right here:
I think Tim’s doing a fantastic job – I’m falling for Maximilian all over again! There’s a new item on the Audio menu called Blood Brothers in Audio where the buy links will be posted (although I’ll also do a blog post.)
